Second Quarter Results (unaudited)

Revenue

Revenue was $1.7 billion a decrease of $378.1 million or 18% versus the three months ended June 30, 2019. This decrease was primarily attributed to lower brokerage activity in the second quarter due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. This decline was also driven in part by the impact of contributing the Company’s China Property, facilities and project management business into the Cushman & Wakefield Vanke Service joint venture in the first quarter of 2020. Leasing declined $225.6 million or 45% on a local currency basis. In addition, Capital markets declined $123.4 million or 52% on a local currency basis. Partially offsetting these trends was the stability of the Company's Property, facilities and project management service line including the increase of $28.3 million in Gross contract reimbursables revenue.

Cost of services

Cost of services of $1.5 billion decreased $233.2 million or 14%. Costs of services provided to clients declined 23% principally due to lower revenue as described above as well as the Company's cost savings actions and operating efficiency initiatives. This decrease was partially offset by higher Cost of gross contract reimbursables primarily related to the Property, facilities and project management service line.

Operating, administrative and other

Operating, administrative and other of $272.1 million decreased by $34.8 million principally due to lower revenue as well as the Company's cost savings actions and operating efficiency initiatives. Overall, as a percentage of total revenue operating, administrative and other costs were flat for the second quarter of 2020 as compared to the second quarter of 2019.

Depreciation and amortization

Depreciation and amortization was $74.6 million, an increase of $0.3 million. This reflected an increase in depreciation and amortization costs of $5.9 million from the Americas, driven by a larger asset base, partially offset by a decrease in amortization of $4.7 million in APAC and EMEA.

Restructuring, impairment and related charges

Restructuring, impairment and related charges were $5.8 million, an increase of $5.6 million, due to operating efficiency initiatives carried out in the second quarter of 2020, as part of the Company's strategic realignment of our business announced earlier this year.

Interest expense, net

Net interest expense was $38.8 million, an increase of $0.6 million. This increase was attributed to the incremental interest incurred as a result of the issuance of our 2020 senior secured notes in May 2020 (the "2020 Notes").

Other income, net

Other income was a net loss of $8.6 million, a decrease of $10.8 million year over year, driven by losses incurred from the disposal of holding companies in connection with the Company's strategic realignment of the business.

Benefit from income taxes

The Company's income tax provision for the second quarter of 2020 was a benefit of $7.7 million on the loss before taxes of $108.5 million. For the second quarter of 2019, the Company's income tax provision was an expense of $11.4 million on income before taxes of $17.7 million. The Company's effective tax rate was lower in the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to the same period last year primarily due to higher interest deduction as a result of the 2020 U.S. CARES Act. The increase in tax benefit is primarily due to a higher current quarter loss before taxes, which was partially offset by a decrease in the effective tax rate, resulting in a greater tax benefit.

Net loss and Adjusted EBITDA

The net loss of $100.8 million principally reflects the impact of COVID-19 on brokerage activity experienced during the second quarter as Leasing and Capital markets revenue declined 45% and 52%, respectively.

Adjusted EBITDA of $118.8 million declined $55.7 million or 31%, on a local currency basis, primarily due to the lower brokerage activity resulting from COVID-19 partially offset by savings generated by cost reduction actions and operating efficiency initiatives. As a result, Adjusted EBITDA margin, measured against service line fee revenue, was 10.2% for the three months ended June 30, 2020, compared to 11.1% in the three months ended June 30, 2019.

Year-to-Date Results (unaudited)

Revenue

Revenue of $3.6 billion decreased $385.7 million or 10% versus the six months ended June 30, 2019. This trend was primarily attributed to lower brokerage activity due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. This decline was driven in part by the impact of contributing the Company’s China Property, facilities and project management business into the Cushman & Wakefield Vanke Service joint venture. Leasing declined $296.7 million or 34% on a local currency basis. In addition, Capital markets declined $132.0 million or 30% on a local currency basis. Partially offsetting these trends was the stability of the Company's Property, facilities and project management service line including the increase of $72.3 million in Gross contract reimbursables revenue.

Cost of services

Cost of services of $3.1 billion decreased $199.2 million or 6%. Cost of services provided to clients declined 12% principally due to the Company's cost savings actions as well as lower revenue as described above. This decrease was partially offset by higher Cost of gross contract reimbursables primarily related to the Property, facilities and project management service line.

Operating, administrative and other

Operating, administrative and other of $556.1 million decreased by $37.6 million principally due to the Company's cost savings actions and operating efficiency initiatives. Overall, as a percentage of total revenue operating, administrative and other costs were flat for the six months ended June 30, 2020 as compared to the first half of 2019.

Depreciation and amortization

Depreciation and amortization was $146.6 million, a decrease of $1.2 million. This decrease reflected lower amortization in APAC and EMEA totaling $9.9 million, partially offset by an increase in depreciation of $7.8 million from the Americas, driven by a larger asset base.

Restructuring, impairment and related charges

Restructuring impairment and related charges were $31.9 million, an increase of $27.8 million, due to operating efficiency initiatives implemented in March 2020 as part of our previously announced strategic realignment of our business, which resulted in the Company incurring charges of $29.2 million for severance and other separation benefits.

Interest expense, net

Net interest expense of $75.3 million, was flat compared to the six months ended June 30, 2019. In January 2020 the Company repriced its term loan to a lower effective interest rate, which was offset by incremental interest incurred as a result of the issuance of the 2020 Notes.

Other income, net

Other income was $30.5 million, an increase of $27.7 million, reflecting a $36.9 million gain as a result of the formation of the Cushman & Wakefield Vanke Service joint venture in China, partially offset by losses incurred from the disposal of holding companies in connection with the Company's strategic realignment of the business.

Benefit from income taxes

The Company's income tax provision for the first six months of 2020 was a benefit of $34.2 million on the loss before taxes of $190.1 million. For the first six months of 2019, the Company's income tax provision was a benefit of $29.5 million on the loss before taxes of $44.1 million. The Company's effective tax rate was lower in the six months ended June 30, 2020 compared to the same period last year primarily due to higher interest deduction as a result of the 2020 U.S. CARES Act. The increase in tax benefit is primarily due to a higher loss before taxes, which was partially offset by a decrease in the effective tax rate, resulting in a greater tax benefit.

Net loss and Adjusted EBITDA

Net loss of $155.9 million principally reflects the impact of COVID-19 on brokerage activity experienced during the first half of 2020, as Leasing and Capital markets revenue declined 34% and 30%, respectively.

Adjusted EBITDA of $189.1 million declined $73.8 million or 27%, on a local currency basis, primarily due to the impact of the lower brokerage activity due to COVID-19 experienced in the first half of 2020 partially offset by savings generated by cost reduction actions and operating efficiency initiatives. As a result, Adjusted EBITDA margin, measured against service line fee revenue, was 7.6% for the six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to 8.9% in the six months ended June 30, 2019.

Balance Sheet

  • Liquidity at the end of the second quarter was $1.9 billion, including availability on the Company's undrawn revolving credit facility of $1.0 billion and cash and cash equivalents of $875.5 million.
  • Net debt as of June 30, 2020 was $2.4 billion including the Company's 2018 First Lien debt of $2.6 billion and the 2020 Notes of $638.6 million and net of cash and cash equivalents of $875.5 million.

Impact of COVID-19

The emergence and proliferation of a novel coronavirus (COVID-19) around the world, and particularly in the United States, Europe and China, presents significant risks to the Company. In response to the outbreak, many countries reacted by instituting quarantine measures, mandating business and school closure and restricting travel, all of which have had an adverse effect on the Company's operations. While restrictions in some areas have been lifted or relaxed, precautions and procedures remain in place in many countries which could continue to impact the Company’s operations for a significant period of time. In addition, some locations have experienced, or may in the future experience, resurgences in COVID-19 cases. The Company cannot reasonably estimate with any degree of certainty the future impact COVID-19 may have on the Company’s results of operations, financial position, and liquidity, much of which will depend on when and to what extent current restrictions are lifted and economic conditions improve. In response to the global pandemic, the Company created a COVID-19 executive task force that has implemented business continuity plans and has taken a variety of actions to ensure the ongoing availability of our services, while also undertaking appropriate health and safety measures. This executive task force is comprised of representatives from every part of our business, including Health, Safety, Security & Environment experts. The task force has authority to make timely, informed decisions relating to our business continuity planning and actions. As a result of these actions, the Company has not experienced disruptions to date in its operations or ability to service our clients. In addition, the Company has been able to respond quickly to our customers’ changing business demands related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The impact of COVID-19 was significant in the second quarter of 2020, as demand declined in our transaction related brokerage service lines. In the second quarter of 2020, Leasing revenue declined 45% and Capital markets revenue declined 52%, compared to the second quarter of 2019.

The Company will continue to monitor the circumstances and may take further actions that affect our business operations and performance. These actions may result from requirements mandated by federal, state or local authorities or that we determine to be in the best interests of our employees, customers, and shareholders. The circumstances surrounding COVID-19 remains fluid, and the potential for a material impact on the Company increases the longer the virus impacts the level of economic activity in the United States and in other countries. For these reasons, the Company cannot reasonably estimate with any degree of certainty the future impact COVID-19 may have on the Company’s results of operations, financial position, and liquidity.

i In order to assist our investors and improve comparability of results, we present the period-over-period changes in certain of our financial measures, such as Service line fee revenue and Adjusted EBITDA, in "local" currency. The local currency change represents the period-over-period change assuming no movement in foreign exchange rates from the prior period. We believe that this presentation provides our management and investors with a better view of comparability and trends in the underlying operating business.

Segment Results

The following tables summarize our results of operations for our operating segments for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA is the profitability metric reported to the chief operating decision maker for purposes of making decisions about allocation of resources to each segment and assessing performance of each segment. Adjusted EBITDA excludes Depreciation and amortization, interest expense, net of interest income, income taxes, as well as integration and other costs related to merger, stock-based compensation for plans enacted before the Company's initial public offering, acquisition related costs and efficiency initiatives and other charges. Segment operating expense is comprised of Fee-based operating expenses and Cost of gross contract reimbursables. Corporate expenses are allocated to the segments based upon Service line fee revenue of each segment.

Cushman & Wakefield plc
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We have used the following measures, which are considered "non-GAAP financial measures" under SEC guidelines:

  1. Segment operating expenses and Fee-based operating expenses;
  2. Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, Depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA") and Adjusted EBITDA margin;
  3. Adjusted net income and Adjusted earnings per share; and
  4. Local currency.

Our management principally uses these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate operating performance, develop budgets and forecasts, improve comparability of results and assist our investors in analyzing the underlying performance of our business. These measures are not recognized measurements under GAAP. When analyzing our operating results, investors should use them in addition to, but not as an alternative for, the most directly comparable financial results calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Because the Company’s calculation of these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from other companies, our presentation of these measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

The Company believes that these measures provide a more complete understanding of ongoing operations, enhance comparability of current results to prior periods, and may be useful for investors to analyze our financial performance. The measures eliminate the impact of certain items that may obscure trends in the underlying performance of our business. The Company believes that they are useful to investors, for the additional purposes described below.

Segment operating expenses and Fee-based operating expenses: Consistent with GAAP, reimbursed costs for certain customer contracts are presented on a gross basis in both revenue and operating expenses for which the Company recognizes substantially no margin. Total costs and expenses include segment operating expenses as well as other expenses such as depreciation and amortization, integration and other costs related to merger, pre-IPO stock-based compensation, acquisition related costs and efficiency initiatives. Segment operating expense includes Fee-based operating expenses and Cost of gross contract reimbursables. We believe Fee-based operating expenses more accurately reflects the costs we incur during the course of delivering services to our clients and is more consistent with how we manage our expense base and operating margins.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin: We have determined Adjusted EBITDA to be our primary measure of segment profitability. We believe that investors find this measure useful in comparing our operating performance to that of other companies in our industry because these calculations generally eliminate integration and other costs related to merger, pre-IPO stock-based compensation, acquisition related costs and efficiency initiatives and other items. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes the effects of financings, income tax and the non-cash accounting effects of depreciation and intangible asset amortization. Adjusted EBITDA margin, a non-GAAP measure of profitability as a percent of revenue, is measured against service line fee revenue.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted earnings per share: Management also assesses the profitability of the business using Adjusted net income. We believe that investors find this measure useful in comparing our profitability to that of other companies in our industry because this calculation generally eliminates integration and other costs related to merger, pre-IPO stock-based compensation, acquisition related costs and efficiency initiatives, depreciation and amortization related to merger and acquisition activity and other items. Income tax, as adjusted, reflects management’s expectation about our long-term effective rate as a public company. The Company also uses Adjusted EPS as a significant component when measuring operating performance. Management defines Adjusted EPS as Adjusted net income, divided by total basic and diluted weighted-average outstanding shares.

Local currency: In discussing our results, we refer to percentage changes in local currency. These metrics are calculated by holding foreign currency exchange rates constant in year-over-year comparisons. Management believes that this methodology provides investors with greater visibility into the performance of our business excluding the effect of foreign currency rate fluctuations.

The interim financial information for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 is unaudited. All adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, except as otherwise noted, considered necessary for a fair presentation of the unaudited interim consolidated financial information for these periods have been included. Users of all of the aforementioned unaudited interim financial information should refer to the audited Consolidated Financial Statements of the Company and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2019.

Please see the following tables for reconciliations of our non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP measures.
