  • Cash flow from operations of $13.0 million during the quarter.  
  • An ending cash balance of $27.7 million. During the quarter the Company paid down $4.0 million of debt.

Lionbridge recently secured several new client programs, including engagements with a global leader in entertainment technologies, a manufacturer of commercial vehicles and engines and a leading banking and payment services company.

For the first nine months ended September 30, 2012 the Company reported revenue of $343.4 million, an increase of $22.9 million or 7% from the first nine months of 2011.  In constant currency with the first nine months of FY 2011, the Company's revenue grew $32.2 million or 10% year-on-year. 

Year to date GAAP net income for the period ended September 30, 2012 was $8.3 million or $0.14 per diluted share, an increase of $9.6 million or $0.16 per diluted share from the first nine months of 2011.

"The third quarter marked another positive quarter of revenue and earnings momentum.  Our strategy for growth continues to show positive results despite pockets of uncertainty in the technology sector.  Our new offerings and new verticals are enabling us to expand our value across our clients' global customer experience," said Rory Cowan, CEO, Lionbridge.  "With our growing base of recurring revenue and our efficient cost platform we are growing our business and increasing profitability.  As a result, we are confident in our opportunities for revenue and profit expansion in 2013 and beyond."

Separately the Company announced today that its Board of Directors has authorized a share repurchase program allowing the Company to repurchase up to $18 million of the Company's common stock.

"The investments we've made during the past 12 months are enabling us to expand our business across end markets," continued Cowan. "The authorization of the share repurchase program underscores our confidence in our near and long-term opportunities for growth."  

The Company provided updated revenue expectations for the fourth quarter with estimated revenue of $112-$115 million.

The Company provided a preliminary outlook for FY 2013 with estimated revenue growth of 6-10% compared to expected FY 2012 and significant growth in income from operations.  

Lionbridge management will conduct a conference call at 9:00 a.m. ET this morning to discuss financial performance for the quarter and other matters, including matters related to its future performance. To participate, callers within the United States can dial 800-857-9821 and international callers can dial 210-234-0023.  The pass code for the call is Lionbridge.  The conference call will also be available live online.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this release, the Company's adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share, are not presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and are not intended to be used in lieu of GAAP presentations of results of operations.  These measures are presented because management believes they provide additional information to investors with respect to the performance of our fundamental business activities. "Adjusted earnings" and "Adjusted Earnings Per Share (EPS)" are Non-GAAP financial measures and should not be viewed as alternatives to GAAP measures of performance.  Management believes the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure for adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share are net income and net income per share, respectively, and has provided a reconciliation of adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share to net income (loss) at the end of this release.

In addition, the Company presented revenue in constant currency terms, which excludes the effect of currency fluctuations between the U.S. dollar and the functional currency of the entity in which the revenue was transacted.  The effect of currency fluctuations is excluded by translating the applicable period's local currency revenue into U.S. dollars using the average local currency exchange rates that were in effect during the applicable prior period of comparison.  Constant currency revenue is a Non-GAAP financial measure and should not be viewed as alternative to GAAP revenue.  Management reviews and analyzes revenue excluding the effect of foreign currency translation because it believes this better represents the Company's underlying business trends.
