Update on Strategic Alternatives Process & Business Outlook

In conjunction with reporting third quarter 2016 financial results on November 1, 2016, the Company announced plans to explore strategic alternatives to ensure its ownership structure optimizes prospects of executing its new tech-focused strategy and enhancing shareholder value. On November 22, 2016 the Company announced it had retained Evercore as its financial advisor for the strategic alternatives process.

"The strategic alternatives process we began during the fourth quarter is progressing in line with our expectations," said Mr. Durney. "While there is no assurance the process will result in a transaction, we are confident in our ability to execute our tech-focused strategy under our current ownership structure."

There are a number of potential outcomes to the strategic alternatives process, and some outcomes could have different organizational and operational implications for the Company. The Company believes this makes providing specific forward guidance less meaningful to the reader at this time. On today's conference call, Management will provide context around the Company's 2017 strategic objectives and operational plans. Details for the conference call are provided below.

Stock Repurchase Program

During the fourth quarter of 2016, the Company purchased approximately 0.6 million shares of its common stock at an average cost of $5.87 per share for a total cost of approximately $3.4 million. The share repurchase program expired in December 2016, and, in light of the Company's exploration of strategic alternatives, was not renewed. The Company will continue to monitor market conditions and the progress of its strategic alternatives process, and may implement a new share repurchase authorization if warranted.

Conference Call Information

The Company will host a conference call to discuss fourth quarter results today at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time.  Hosting the call will be Michael Durney, President and Chief Executive Officer, and Luc Grégoire, Chief Financial Officer.

Notes Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has provided certain non-GAAP financial information as additional information for its operating results.  These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP") and may be different from similarly titled non-GAAP measures reported by other companies.  The Company believes that its presentation of non-GAAP measures, such as adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, non-cash stock based compensation expense, and other non-recurring income or expense ("Adjusted EBITDA"), Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted EBITDA excluding Slashdot Media and disposition related and other costs, Adjusted EBITDA margin excluding Slashdot Media and disposition related and other costs, Revenues excluding Slashdot Media, Net Income excluding Slashdot Media, impairment charge and disposition related and other costs, Free Cash Flow, Diluted Earnings per Share excluding Slashdot Media, impairment charge and disposition related and other costs, and Net Debt, provides useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to its financial condition and results of operations. In addition, the Company's management uses these measures for reviewing the financial results of the Company and for budgeting and planning purposes.  The non-GAAP measures apply to consolidated results and results by segment or other measure as shown within this document.  The Company has provided required reconciliations to the most comparable GAAP measures elsewhere in the document.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP metric used by management to measure operating performance.  Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as a performance measure for internal monitoring and planning, including preparation of annual budgets, analyzing investment decisions and evaluating profitability and performance comparisons between us and our competitors.  The Company also uses this measure to calculate amounts of performance based compensation under the senior management incentive bonus program.  Adjusted EBITDA, as defined in our Credit Agreement, represents net income plus (to the extent deducted in calculating such net income) interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock option expenses, losses resulting from certain dispositions outside the ordinary course of business, certain writeoffs in connection with indebtedness, impairment charges with respect to long-lived assets, expenses incurred in connection with an equity offering, extraordinary or non-recurring non-cash expenses or losses, transaction costs in connection with the Credit Agreement up to $250,000, deferred revenues written off in connection with acquisition purchase accounting adjustments, writeoff of non-cash stock compensation expense, and business interruption insurance proceeds, minus (to the extent included in calculating such net income) non-cash income or gains, interest income, and any income or gain resulting from certain dispositions outside the ordinary course of business.

We present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental performance measure because we believe that this measure provides our board of directors, management and investors with additional information to measure our performance, provide comparisons from period to period and company to company by excluding potential differences caused by variations in capital structures (affecting interest expense) and tax positions (such as the impact on periods or companies of changes in effective tax rates or net operating losses), and to estimate our value.

We also present Adjusted EBITDA because covenants in our Credit Agreement contain ratios based on this measure.  Our Credit Agreement is material to us because it is one of our primary sources of liquidity.  If our Adjusted EBITDA were to decline below certain levels, covenants in our Credit Agreement that are based on Adjusted EBITDA may be violated and could cause a default and acceleration of payment obligations under our Credit Agreement.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP as a measure of our profitability.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin

Adjusted EBITDA Margin is a non-GAAP metric used by management to measure operating performance.  Adjusted EBITDA Margin is computed as Adjusted EBITDA divided by Revenues.

Adjusted EBITDA Excluding Slashdot Media and disposition related and other costs

Adjusted EBITDA excluding Slashdot Media and disposition related and other costs is a non-GAAP metric used by management to measure operating performance. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA excluding Slashdot Media and disposition related and other costs as a measure of our financial performance given our sale of Slashdot Media and disposition related and other costs. Adjusted EBITDA excluding Slashdot Media and disposition related and other costs, represents Adjusted EBITDA defined above, less Slashdot Media and disposition related and other costs.

Adjusted EBITDA margin, Excluding Slashdot Media and disposition related and other costs

Adjusted EBITDA margin, excluding Slashdot Media and disposition related and other costs is a non-GAAP metric used by management to measure operating performance. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA margin, excluding Slashdot Media and disposition related and other costs as a measure of our financial performance given our sale of Slashdot Media and disposition related and other costs. Adjusted EBITDA margin, excluding Slashdot Media and disposition related and other costs, is computed as Adjusted EBITDA, excluding Slashdot Media and disposition related and other costs divided by Revenues excluding Slashdot Media.

Revenues Excluding Slashdot Media

Revenues excluding Slashdot Media is a non-GAAP metric used by management to measure operating performance.  Revenues excluding Slashdot Media represents Revenues as defined above less Slashdot Media revenue.  We consider Revenues excluding Slashdot Media to be an important measure to evaluate our financial performance given our sale of Slashdot Media.

Net Income Excluding Slashdot Media, impairment charge and disposition related and other costs

Net Income excluding Slashdot Media, impairment charge and disposition related and other costs is a non-GAAP metric used by management to measure operating performance. Net Income excluding Slashdot Media, impairment charge and disposition related and other costs is defined as Net Income less Slashdot Media Net Income (Loss), impairment charge and disposition related and other costs. We consider Net Income excluding Slashdot Media, impairment charge and disposition related and other costs to be an important measure of our financial performance given our sale of Slashdot Media, impairment charge and disposition related and other costs.

Diluted Earnings per Share Excluding Slashdot Media, impairment charge and disposition related and other costs

Diluted earnings per share excluding Slashdot Media, impairment charge and disposition related and other costs is a non-GAAP metric used by management to measure operating performance. Diluted earnings per share excluding Slashdot Media, impairment charge and disposition related and other costs is defined as diluted earnings per share less impact per share of Slashdot Media, impairment charge and disposition related and other costs. We consider diluted earnings per share excluding Slashdot Media, impairment charge and disposition related and other costs to be an important measure of our financial performance.

Free Cash Flow

We define free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities minus capital expenditures. We believe free cash flow is an important non-GAAP measure as it provides useful cash flow information regarding our ability to service, incur or pay down indebtedness or repurchase our common stock.  We use free cash flow as a measure to reflect cash available to service our debt as well as to fund our expenditures.  A limitation of using free cash flow versus the GAAP measure of net cash provided by operating activities is that free cash flow does not represent the total increase or decrease in the cash balance from operations for the period since it includes cash used for capital expenditures during the period and is adjusted for acquisition related payments within operating cash flows.

Net Debt

Net Debt is defined as total principal outstanding less cash. We consider Net Debt to be an important measure of liquidity and indicator of our ability to meet ongoing obligations.  We also use Net Debt, among other measures, in evaluating our choices for capital deployment.  Net Debt presented herein is a non-GAAP measure and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release and oral statements made from time to time by our representatives contain forward-looking statements. You should not place undue reliance on those statements because they are subject to numerous uncertainties and factors relating to our operations and business environment, all of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond our control. Forward-looking statements include information without limitation concerning our possible or assumed future results of operations, including descriptions of our business strategy. These statements often include words such as "may," "will," "should," "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "plan," "estimate" or similar expressions.  These statements are based on assumptions that we have made in light of our experience in the industry as well as our perceptions of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors we believe are appropriate under the circumstances. Although we believe that these forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, you should be aware that many factors could affect our actual financial results or results of operations and could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements.  These factors include, but are not limited to, the review of strategic alternatives and the possibility that such review will not result in a transaction, competition from existing and future competitors in the highly competitive market in which we operate, failure to adapt our business model to keep pace with rapid changes in the recruiting and career services business, failure to maintain and develop our reputation and brand recognition, failure to increase or maintain the number of customers who purchase recruitment packages, cyclicality or downturns in the economy or industries we serve, the uncertainty surrounding the United Kingdom's future departure from the European Union, including uncertainty in respect of the regulation of data protection and data privacy, failure to attract qualified professionals to our websites or grow the number of qualified professionals who use our websites, failure to successfully identify or integrate acquisitions, U.S. and foreign government regulation of the Internet and taxation, our ability to borrow funds under our revolving credit facility or refinance our indebtedness and restrictions on our current and future operations under such indebtedness.  These factors and others are discussed in more detail in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, all of which are available on the Investors page of our website at www.dhigroupinc.com, including the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015, under the headings "Risk Factors," "Forward-Looking Statements" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations."

You should keep in mind that any forward-looking statement made by the Company or its representatives herein, or elsewhere, speaks only as of the date on which it is made. New risks and uncertainties come up from time to time, and it is impossible to predict these events or how they may affect us. We have no obligation to update any forward-looking statements after the date hereof, except as required by applicable law.
