2019 Second Quarter Results
Consolidated net revenue (revenue before reimbursements) of $173.1 million declined 5.4%, or $9.9 million, from $183.1 million in the 2018 second quarter. Excluding the impact of exchange rate fluctuations, which negatively impacted results by 1.9%, or $3.4 million, consolidated net revenue declined 3.6%, or $6.5 million

Executive Search net revenue of $158.5 million declined 4.8%, or $8.0 million, from $166.5 million in the 2018 second quarter. Excluding the impact of exchange rate fluctuations which impacted results by 1.9%, or $3.1 million, Executive Search net revenue declined 2.9%, or $4.9 million. Net revenue declined 2.1% in the Americas, 6.5% in Europe (1.0% on a constant currency basis) and 12.7% in Asia Pacific (9.4% on a constant currency basis). All industry practice groups experienced a reduction in billings with the exception of the Healthcare & Life Sciences practice.

There were 371 Executive Search consultants at June 30, 2019 compared to 349 at June 30, 2018 and 370 at March 31, 2019. Productivity, as measured by annualized Executive Search net revenue per consultant, was $1.7 million compared to $1.9 million in the 2018 second quarter. The average revenue per executive search increased to $124,200 compared to $119,400 in the 2018 second quarter, while the number of confirmed searches was off 8.5% compared to the 2018 second quarter.

Heidrick Consulting net revenue decreased 12.0%, or $2.0 million, to $14.6 million from $16.6 million in the 2018 second quarter. Excluding the impact of exchange rate fluctuations which negatively impacted results by 2.4%, or $0.4 million, Heidrick Consulting net revenue declined 9.8%, or $1.6 million. The decline in revenue reflects lower productivity and the timing of project engagements. There were 68 Heidrick Consulting consultants at June 30, 2019 compared to 69 at June 30, 2018 and 67 at March 31, 2019. 

Consolidated salaries and benefits expense declined 5.5%, or $7.1 million, to $120.6 million from $127.7 million in the 2018 second quarter. Fixed compensation expense increased $3.0 million, due to higher stock compensation expense, and retirement and other benefits expense. Variable compensation expense declined $10.0 million, mostly related to lower revenue in the quarter. Salaries and benefits expense was 69.7% of net revenue for the quarter, the same as for the 2018 second quarter. 

General and administrative expenses improved 7.5%, or $2.8 million, to $34.2 million from $36.9 million in the 2018 second quarter. Savings were achieved in several expense categories, but the largest year-over-year improvement was a reduction in professional services fees. As a percentage of net revenue, general and administrative expenses were 19.7% compared to 20.2% in the 2018 second quarter.

Operating income of $18.4 million in the 2019 second quarter was consistent with the 2018 second quarter operating income of $18.5 million, however the operating margin expanded to 10.6% from 10.1%.  Adjusted EBITDA in the 2019 second quarter grew 2.0%, or $0.5 million, to $24.0 million from $23.6 million in the 2018 second quarter. Adjusted EBITDA margin improved to 13.9% from 12.9% in the 2018 second quarter. The improvements in operating margin, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin were primarily driven by company's ability to reduce salaries and benefits expense and general and administrative expenses. 

Net income increased to $14.3 million and diluted earnings per share was $0.73 with an effective tax rate of 26.7% in the quarter. This compares favorably to net income of $11.5 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.59 with an effective tax rate of 37.7% in last year's second quarter. The full-year projected tax rate is in the low 30% range excluding any one-time items.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $33.4 million in the 2019 second quarter, compared to $30.4 million in the 2018 second quarter. Cash and marketable securities at June 30, 2019 were $144.0 million, compared to $279.9 million at December 31, 2018, and $85.8 million at June 30, 2018. The company's cash position typically builds throughout the year as bonuses are accrued, mostly to be paid out in the first quarter. 

2019 Six Months Results
For the six months ended June 30, 2019 consolidated net revenue of $344.7 million increased 0.5%, or $1.6 million, from $343.1 million in the first six months of 2018. Excluding the impact of exchange rate fluctuations, which negatively impacted results by 2.2%, or $7.8 million, consolidated net revenue increased 2.7% or $9.4 million

Executive Search net revenue in the first six months of 2019 increased 1.4%, or $4.5 million, to $316.8 million from $312.3 million in the first six months of 2018. Excluding the impact of exchange rate fluctuations which negatively impacted results by 2.2%, or $7.2 million, net revenue increased 3.7%, or $11.7 million. Net revenue increased 5.7% in the Americas, but declined 6.2% in Europe (increased 0.1% on a constant currency basis), and 3.5% in Asia Pacific (increased 0.7% on a constant currency basis). Growth in the Consumer Markets, Healthcare & Life Sciences, Industrial, and Global Technology & Services practices were offset by declines in the Financial Services and Education & Social Enterprise practices. Productivity was $1.7 million for the first six months of 2019 compared to $1.8 million in the first six months of 2018.  The average revenue per executive search increased to $123,900 in the first six months of 2019 from $117,600 the same period in 2018, while the number of executive searches confirmed was off 3.8%. 

Heidrick Consulting net revenue in the first six months of 2019 declined 9.5%, or $2.9 million, to $27.9 million from $30.8 million in the first six months of 2018. Excluding the impact of exchange rate fluctuations, Heidrick Consulting revenue declined 7.4%, or $2.3 million. The year-over-year change reflects lower productivity and the timing of project engagements.  

Operating income for the first six months of 2019 increased 10.0%, or $3.2 million, to $34.7 million from $31.6 million in the same period of 2018. The operating margin improved to 10.1% compared to 9.2% in the first six months of 2018. Adjusted EBITDA for the first six months of 2019 increased to $44.7 million and Adjusted EBITDA margin was 13.0%, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $42.0 million and Adjusted EBITDA margin of 12.2% for the same period in 2018.

Net income for the first six months of 2019 increased to $26.4 million and diluted earnings per share was $1.35, with an effective tax rate of 31.2%. This compares net income of $21.6 million and diluted earnings per share of $1.12 in the first six months of 2018, with an effective tax rate of 30.9%. 

2019 Third Quarter Outlook
The company expects 2019 third quarter consolidated net revenue of between $175 million and $185 million. The outlook is based on the average currency rates in June 2019 and reflects, among other factors, management's assumptions for the anticipated volume of new Executive Search confirmations, Heidrick Consulting assignments, the current backlog, consultant productivity, consultant retention, and the seasonality of its business.  

Dividend
The Board of Directors has declared a 2019 third quarter cash dividend of $0.15 per share payable on August 23, 2019 to shareholders of record at the close of business on August 9, 2019.

A "non-GAAP financial measure" is defined as a numerical measure of a company's financial performance that excludes or includes amounts different than the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statements of comprehensive income, balance sheets or statements of cash flow of the company. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, this earnings release contains the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to the non-GAAP financial measure.

The non-GAAP financial measures used within this earnings release are Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin. These measures are presented because management uses this information to monitor and evaluate financial results and trends. Management believes this information is also useful for investors. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP are provided as schedules attached to this release.
