Quintiles Transnational Holdings Inc. (“Quintiles” or the “Company”) (NYSE:Q) today reported its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014.

For the three months ended September 30, 2014, the Company’s service revenues were $1.06 billion which represents growth of 13.8%, or $128.3 million compared to the same period last year at actual foreign exchange rates. The Company’s growth in service revenues, excluding the impact of foreign currency fluctuations (“constant currency”), was 14.0% with 7.9% growth in the Product Development segment and 33.9% growth in the Integrated Healthcare Services segment.

Adjusted income from operations was $150.9 million in the third quarter of 2014, representing growth of 13.9% compared to the same period last year. The adjusted income from operations margin was 14.2%, which is consistent with the same period last year. Adjusted net income was $85.0 million in the third quarter of 2014, representing growth of 20.2% compared to the same period last year. Diluted adjusted earnings per share was $0.65 in the quarter ended September 30, 2014, representing growth of 22.6% compared to the same period last year.

Reported GAAP income from operations was $149.1 million, reported GAAP net income was $92.7 million and reported GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.71 for the three months ended September 30, 2014. Reconciliations of the non-GAAP measures, including adjusted income from operations, adjusted net income and diluted adjusted earnings per share to the corresponding GAAP measures are attached to this press release.

Net new business grew 12.8% compared to the same period last year to $1.51 billion representing a book-to-bill ratio of 1.42 in the quarter ended September 30, 2014. This net new business contributed to an ending backlog of $10.75 billion at September 30, 2014.

“Quintiles is a story of consistent performance with a focus on industry leadership, and I am proud to report that this story continued in the third quarter of 2014,” said Chief Executive Officer Tom Pike. “For the third quarter, our consolidated revenue increased by 13.8% compared to the same period last year.”

“Further, I am pleased to report that net new business, revenues, and EPS for the third-quarter grew at double-digit rates,” Pike said. “We finished the quarter with revenue growth of 32.6% in our IHS segment, showcasing significant progress. The third quarter net new business allowed Quintiles to keep its industry-leading backlog of $10.75 billion. Our strong performance continues to strengthen our platform which allows us to capitalize on strategic priorities and create value for our customers and investors,” Pike explained.

The Product Development segment net new business totaled $1.27 billion in the quarter ended September 30, 2014 which translates to a book-to-bill ratio of 1.64. The net new business increased 47% compared to the same period in 2013, led by the five-year renewal of a significant contract in our clinical and data management functional resourcing services businesses. Product Development’s service revenues grew 8.0% compared to the same period last year to $771.4 million at actual foreign exchange rates. At constant currency exchange rates, Product Development’s service revenues grew 7.9%, or $56.3 million during the third quarter of 2014 compared to the same period last year. The service revenue growth resulted from volume-related increases in global laboratory services, clinical trial support services, services provided on a functional resource basis and from the Novella acquisition in 2013, partially offset by the conclusion of a large clinical solutions project which was delivered throughout 2013. Product Development’s income from operations margin was 20.5% for the third quarter, representing an improvement of 80 basis points compared to the same period last year, including 30 basis points from favorable currency fluctuations.

The Integrated Healthcare Services segment net new business totaled $244 million which translates to a book-to-bill ratio of .84 for the quarter ended September 30, 2014. At actual foreign exchange rates, Integrated Healthcare Services’ service revenues increased 32.6%, or $71.1 million, during the third quarter of 2014 compared to the same period last year to $289.6 million including $19.2 million from the Encore acquisition, partially offset by $2.8 million of unfavorable foreign currency impacts. On a constant currency basis, Integrated Healthcare Services’ service revenues increased 33.9% during the third quarter of 2014 compared to the same period last year, primarily due to increases in commercial solutions in Japan and North America as well as growth in real-world and late phase research services partially offset by a decline in commercial solutions in Europe. Integrated Healthcare Services’ income from operations margin was 6.9% for the third quarter, representing an improvement of 160 basis points compared to the same period last year, including unfavorable currency fluctuations of 30 basis points.

General corporate and unallocated expenses were $27.2 million during the quarter ended September 30, 2014 compared to $19.8 million for the same period last year.

Interest expense was $25.1 million during the quarter ended September 30, 2014 compared to $28.8 million for the same period last year. Interest expense was lower than the same period in 2013 due to a decrease in the average rate of interest.

Other income, net was $7.8 million during the quarter ended September 30, 2014 compared to $3.2 million of net expenses for the same period last year. Other income, net was higher than the same period in 2013 due to a change in fair value of contingent consideration payable for an acquisition, partially offset by other expenses.

The GAAP effective income tax rate was 31.1% for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 compared to 29.1% for the same period in 2013 as a higher percentage of income was delivered in the United States during the current period compared to the same period last year.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company’s constant currency service revenue growth was 10.3%, or $289.7 million as compared to the same period in 2013. At actual foreign exchange rates, the Company’s service revenues of $3.1 billion for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, grew 10.6% compared to the same period in 2013 which included a positive foreign currency impact of $7.7 million. Adjusted income from operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $435.2 million representing growth of 16.1% compared to the same period in 2013. Adjusted income from operations margin was 14.0% representing 60 basis points of margin expansion compared to the same period last year of which 50 basis points was from favorable currency fluctuations. Adjusted net income was $261.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 representing growth of 36.9% compared to the same period last year. Diluted adjusted earnings per share was $1.98 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 representing growth of 31.1% compared to the same period last year. Reported GAAP income from operations was $431.5 million, reported GAAP net income was $268.0 million and reported GAAP diluted earnings per share was $2.03 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014.

Financial Guidance

Prior guidance was based on foreign currency exchange rates at June 30, 2014. Because of significant changes in foreign currency exchange rates occurring after that date, 2014 service revenues are estimated to be approximately $40.0 million less than prior guidance, of which the third quarter was negatively impacted by approximately $10.0 million. The Company has adjusted its full year 2014 guidance, which includes service revenues estimated to be between $4.16 billion and $4.19 billion, representing growth of 9.2% to 10.0% compared to 2013, and raised diluted adjusted earnings per share to $2.61 to $2.68 per share representing growth of 26.7% to 30.1% compared to 2013, with diluted GAAP earnings per share between $2.61 and $2.68 per share. The annual effective income tax rate is estimated to be approximately 30%. This financial guidance is based on the actual results for the nine month period ended September 30, 2014 combined with our estimates for the remaining three months of 2014, assuming the foreign currency exchange rates at September 30, 2014 stay in effect for the remainder of the year, and does not reflect the impact of any future equity repurchases.

During the third quarter of 2014, the Company began excluding changes from adjustments to estimated contingent consideration from business combinations from adjusted net income and diluted adjusted earnings per share. All periods presented in the tables accompanying this press release have been adjusted to reflect this change.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes adjusted EBITDA, adjusted income from operations, adjusted income from operations margin, adjusted net income and diluted adjusted earnings per share, each of which is a financial measure not prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). Management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful supplemental information to management and investors regarding the underlying performance of the Company’s business operations and are more indicative of core operating results as they exclude certain items whose fluctuations from period-to-period do not necessarily correspond to changes in the core operations of the business. These non-GAAP measures are performance measures only and are not measures of the Company’s cash flows or liquidity, nor are they alternatives for measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from similarly titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Investors and potential investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures attached to this press release.

Internet Posting of Information: The Company routinely posts information that may be important to investors in the ‘Investors’ section of the Company’s website at www.Quintiles.com. The Company encourages investors and potential investors to consult the Company’s website regularly for important information about the Company.

(1) Management fees were previously paid to affiliates of certain of the Company’s shareholders pursuant to a management agreement. The nine month period ended September 30, 2013 includes a $25.0 million fee paid in connection with the termination of the management agreement.
(2) During the third quarter of 2014, the Company began excluding changes from adjustments to estimated contingent consideration from business combinations from adjusted net income and diluted adjusted earnings per share. Consistent with the other adjustments to adjusted net income and diluted adjusted net income per share, management believes that changes to the estimated value of contingent consideration are not indicative of its core operating results as the fluctuations from period-to-period do not necessarily correspond to changes in the core operations of the business. There was no contingent consideration impact to EPS during three months ended March 31, 2014 or June 30, 2014.
(3) The tax effect of adjustments was based on the income tax rate of the respective transactions, which was 38.5%, with the exception of i) restructuring costs which were tax effected at 39.3% and 27.5% during the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, and 34.6% and 27.5% during the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively and ii) contingent consideration which is not tax effected as it represents a permanent difference between book and tax income.
(4) Other income tax adjustments remove the impact of certain discrete adjustments on the Company’s income tax expense in the nine month period in 2013. The Company’s effective income tax rate in the 2013 periods was impacted by the Company’s change in assertion regarding the undistributed earnings of most of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries, which are now considered to be indefinitely reinvested outside of the United States. As a result of the assertion change, in the second quarter of 2013, the Company recorded an $8.1 million discrete income tax benefit to reverse the deferred income tax liability previously recorded on undistributed foreign earnings. In addition, in the second quarter of 2013, the Company settled certain intercompany notes that had previously been considered long term investments, which resulted in an $11.2 million discrete income tax expense.

(1) Management fees were previously paid to affiliates of certain of the Company’s shareholders pursuant to a management agreement. The quarter ended June 30, 2013 and the year ended December 31, 2013 include a $25.0 million fee paid in connection with the termination of the management agreement.
(2) During the third quarter of 2014, the Company began excluding changes from adjustments to estimated contingent consideration from business combinations from adjusted net income and diluted adjusted earnings per share. Consistent with the other adjustments to adjusted net income and diluted adjusted net income per share, management believes that changes to the estimated value of contingent consideration are not indicative of its core operating results as the fluctuations from period-to-period do not necessarily correspond to changes in the core operations of the business. To conform to the current period presentation, all the periods for fiscal year 2013 in the table above reflect the inclusion of this adjustment.
(3) The tax effect of adjustments was based on the income tax rate of the respective transactions, which was 38.5%, with the exception of i) restructuring costs which were tax effected at 36.0%, 20.1%, 27.5%, 32.3% and 28.2% during the three months ended March 31, 2013, June 30, 2013, September 30, 2013, December 31, 2013 and for the year ended December 31, 2013, respectively and ii) contingent consideration which is not tax effected as it represents a permanent difference between book and tax income.
(4) Other income tax adjustments remove the impact of certain discrete adjustments on the Company’s income tax expense in 2013. The Company’s effective income tax rate in the 2013 periods was impacted by the Company’s change in assertion regarding the undistributed earnings of most of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries, which are now considered to be indefinitely reinvested outside of the United States.
