Fully diluted earnings per share ("EPS") were $0.02 compared to fully diluted loss per share of ($0.18) in the prior year quarter. Fourth quarter EPS included a non-cash income tax reserve on a deferred tax asset of $4.6 million related to the deductibility of future net operating losses in the Company's Australian business and a special charge of $1.6 million related to the departure of an executive, which reduced EPS by $0.11 and $0.02, respectively. Fourth quarter 2013 EPS included $27.6 million of termination expenses related to the departure of former senior executives, which reduced EPS by $0.41. Adjusted fully diluted earnings per share ("Adjusted EPS") were $0.04 and Adjusted EBITDA was $36.1 million, or 8.5 percent of revenues, compared to Adjusted EPS of $0.39 and Adjusted EBITDA of $47.7 million, or 11.5 percent of revenues, in the prior year quarter.

For the full year, revenues increased 6.3 percent to $1.76 billion compared to $1.65 billion in the prior year. EPS were $1.44 and included $16.3 million of special charges compared to the prior year fully diluted loss per share of ($0.27), which included a goodwill impairment charge and special charges of $83.8 million and $38.4 million, respectively. Full year Adjusted EPS were $1.64 and Adjusted EBITDA was $210.6 million, or 12.0 percent of revenues, compared to Adjusted EPS of $2.09 and Adjusted EBITDA of $245.6 million, or 14.9 percent of revenues, in the prior year.

Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Segment EBITDA are non-GAAP measures defined elsewhere in this press release and are reconciled to GAAP measures in the financial tables that accompany this press release.

Commenting on these results, Steven H. Gunby, President and Chief Executive Officer of FTI Consulting, said, "Notwithstanding our disappointment in the fourth quarter, we are making solid progress towards getting to where we need to be to meet the 2015 and 2016 targets we have outlined. There is a lot of work ahead of us, both at the corporate level and in each of our businesses, but the progress we have made reinforces my enthusiasm about where we can take the business in 2015 and beyond."

Cash and Capital Allocation

Net cash provided by operating activities for the full year 2014 was $135.4 million compared to $193.3 million in the prior year. Cash and cash equivalents were $283.7 million at December 31, 2014. In 2014, the Company spent $23.5 million on acquisitions.

Fourth Quarter Segment Results

Corporate Finance/Restructuring

Revenues in the Corporate Finance/Restructuring segment increased 0.3 percent to $93.1 million in the quarter compared to $92.8 million in the prior year quarter. Growth in non-distressed engagements in North America and transaction advisory and tax practices in the Europe, Middle East and Africa ("EMEA") region, was partially offset by declines in the Asia Pacific and North America bankruptcy and restructuring practices. Adjusted Segment EBITDA was $9.9 million, or 10.6 percent of segment revenues, compared to $10.9 million, or 11.7 percent of segment revenues, in the prior year quarter. Adjusted Segment EBITDA margin was impacted unfavorably by a decline in higher margin global bankruptcy and restructuring activity, lower bill rates in the segment's North America and EMEA regions and higher severance costs.

Economic Consulting

Revenues in the Economic Consulting segment declined 1.5 percent to $106.5 million in the quarter compared to $108.1 million in the prior year quarter. Revenues declined organically by 2.5 percent due to a negative impact of 1.0 percent from foreign currency translation ("FX") and lower demand for the segment's antitrust practice compared to strong performance in the prior year quarter. Adjusted Segment EBITDA was $9.8 million, or 9.2 percent of segment revenues, compared to $22.0 million, or 20.3 percent of segment revenues, in the prior year quarter. Adjusted Segment EBITDA margin was impacted unfavorably by increased compensation expense related to extensions of employment contracts entered into with certain key senior client-service professionals, a significant increase in state income tax equalization obligation and increased bad debt expense.

Forensic and Litigation Consulting

Revenues in the Forensic and Litigation Consulting segment increased 5.6 percent to $121.1 million in the quarter compared to $114.7 million in the prior year quarter. Revenues grew organically by 2.8 percent due to higher demand in the segment's North America and EMEA investigations and North America and Latin America construction solutions practices, which was partially offset by lower success fees and lower demand in the health solutions practice. Adjusted Segment EBITDA was $19.4 million, or 16.1 percent of segment revenues, compared to $17.6 million, or 15.3 percent of segment revenues, in the prior year quarter. The increase in Adjusted Segment EBITDA margin was due to strong utilization in the global investigations practice and lower bonus expense compared to the prior year quarter, which was partially offset by lower utilization and success fees in the health solutions practice.

Technology

Revenues in the Technology segment increased 8.6 percent to $58.2 million in the quarter compared to $53.6 million in the prior year quarter. The increase in revenues was due to higher services revenue primarily related to complex global investigations. Adjusted Segment EBITDA was $13.3 million, or 22.8 percent of segment revenues, compared to $14.7 million, or 27.4 percent of segment revenues, in the prior year quarter. The decrease in Adjusted Segment EBITDA margin was due to an increase in the mix of lower margin services, higher research and development expenses and corporate allocations in support of operations.

Strategic Communications

Revenues in the Strategic Communications segment decreased 1.2 percent to $46.3 million in the quarter compared to $46.9 million in the prior year quarter, which included a 2.9 percent unfavorable impact from FX. Excluding FX, revenues increased 1.7 percent due to a project-related success fee. Adjusted Segment EBITDA was $7.4 million, or 16.0 percent of segment revenues, compared to $5.9 million, or 12.6 percent of segment revenues, in the prior year quarter. Adjusted Segment EBITDA margin was positively impacted by higher project income and reduced billable headcount resulting from cost savings activities initiated in 2014.

2015 Guidance

The Company estimates that revenues for 2015 will be between $1.80 billion and $1.90 billion and Adjusted EPS will be between $1.95 and $2.20. This guidance assumes no acquisitions.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Note: We define Segment Operating Income (loss) as a segment's share of consolidated operating income (loss). We define Total Segment Operating Income (loss) as the total of Segment Operating Income (loss) for all segments, which excludes unallocated corporate expenses. We use Segment Operating Income for the purpose of calculating Adjusted Segment EBITDA. We define Adjusted EBITDA as consolidated net income (loss) before income tax provision, other non-operating income (expense), depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, remeasurement of acquisition-related contingent consideration, special charges, goodwill impairment charges and loss on early extinguishment of debt. We define Adjusted Segment EBITDA as a segment's share of consolidated operating income before depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, remeasurement of acquisition-related contingent consideration, special charges and goodwill impairment charges. We define Total Adjusted Segment EBITDA as the total of Adjusted Segment EBITDA for all segments, which excludes unallocated corporate expenses. We define Adjusted Segment EBITDA margin as Adjusted Segment EBITDA as a percentage of a segment's share of revenue. We use Adjusted Segment EBITDA to internally evaluate the financial performance of our segments because we believe it is a useful supplemental measure which reflects current core operating performance and provides an indicator of the segment's ability to generate cash. We also believe that these measures, when considered together with our GAAP financial results, provide management and investors with a more complete understanding of our operating results, including underlying trends, by excluding the effects of remeasurement of acquisition-related contingent consideration, special charges and goodwill impairment charges. In addition, EBITDA is a common alternative measure of operating performance used by many of our competitors. It is used by investors, financial analysts, rating agencies and others to value and compare the financial performance of companies in our industry. Therefore, we also believe that these measures, considered along with corresponding GAAP measures, provide management and investors with additional information for comparison of our operating results to the operating results of other companies.

We define Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share ("Adjusted EPS") as net income (loss) and earnings per diluted share, respectively, excluding the impact of remeasurement of acquisition-related contingent consideration, special charges, goodwill impairment charges and losses on early extinguishment of debt. We use Adjusted Net Income for the purpose of calculating Adjusted EPS. Management uses Adjusted EPS to assess total Company operating performance on a consistent basis. We believe that this measure, when considered together with our GAAP financial results, provides management and investors with a more complete understanding of our business operating results, including underlying trends, by excluding the effects of remeasurement of acquisition-related contingent consideration, special charges, goodwill impairment charges and losses on early extinguishment of debt. Non-GAAP financial measures are not defined in the same manner by all companies and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for or superior to, the information contained in our Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income. Reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures are included elsewhere in this press release.

Safe Harbor Statement

This press release includes "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which involve uncertainties and risks. Forward-looking statements include statements concerning our plans, objectives, goals, strategies, future events, future revenues, future results and performance, expectations, plans or intentions relating to acquisitions and other matters, business trends and other information that is not historical, including statements regarding estimates of our future financial results. When used in this press release, words such as "estimates," "expects," "anticipates," "projects," "plans," "intends," "believes," "forecasts" and variations of such words or similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, estimates of our future financial results, are based upon our expectations at the time we make them and various assumptions. Our expectations, beliefs and projections are expressed in good faith, and we believe there is a reasonable basis for them. However, there can be no assurance that management's expectations, beliefs and estimates will be achieved, and the Company's actual results may differ materially from our expectations, beliefs and estimates. Further, preliminary results are subject to normal year-end adjustments. The Company has experienced fluctuating revenues, operating income and cash flow in prior periods and expects that this will occur from time to time in the future. Other factors that could cause such differences include declines in demand for, or changes in, the mix of services and products that we offer, the mix of the geographic locations where our clients are located or where services are performed, adverse financial, real estate or other market and general economic conditions, which could impact each of our segments differently, the pace and timing of the consummation and integration of past and future acquisitions, the Company's ability to realize cost savings and efficiencies, competitive and general economic conditions, retention of staff and clients and other risks described under the heading "Item 1A Risk Factors" in the Company's most recent Form 10-K filed with the SEC and in the Company's other filings with the SEC, including the risks set forth under "Risks Related to Our Reportable-Segments" and "Risks Related to Our Operations". We are under no duty to update any of the forward looking statements to conform such statements to actual results or events and do not intend to do so.

(1) The tax effect takes into account the tax treatment and related tax rate(s) that apply to each adjustment in the applicable tax jurisdiction(s). As a result, the effective tax rates for the adjustments related to special charges for both the three months and year ended December 31, 2014 was 41.0%. The effective tax rates for the adjustments related to special charges for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013 was 41.4% and 39.4%, respectively.

The tax expense related to the adjustments for special charges for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013 was $11.4 million or $0.29 impact on adjusted earnings per diluted share and $15.1 million or $0.39 impact on diluted earnings per share, respectively.
(2) The goodwill impairment charge is non-deductible for income tax purposes and resulted in no tax benefit for the year ended December 31, 2013.
(3) The tax effect takes into account the tax treatment and related tax rate(s) that apply to each adjustment in the applicable tax jurisdiction(s). As a result, the effective tax rates for the adjustments related to the remeasurement of acquistion-related contingent consideration for the three months and year ended December 31, 2014 were 40.0% and 36.9%, respectively. The effective tax rates for the adjustments related to the remeasurement of acquistion-related contingent consideration for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013 were 28.1% and 11.1%, respectively. The tax expense related to the adjustments for the remeasurement of acquistion-related contingent consideration for the three months and year ended December 31, 2014 were $0.1 million with no impact on adjusted earnings per diluted share and $1.0 million or $0.02 impact on diluted earnings per share, respectively. The tax expense related to the adjustment for the remeasurement of acquistion-related contingent consideration for both the three months and year ended December 31, 2013 was $1.5 million or $0.04 impact on adjusted earnings per diluted share.
(4) For the three months and year ended December 31, 2013, the Company reported a net loss. For such periods, the basic weighted average common shares outstanding equals the diluted weighted average common shares outstanding for purposes of calculating U.S. GAAP earnings per share because potentially dilutive securities would be antidilutive. For non-GAAP purposes, the per share and share amounts presented herein reflect the impact of the inclusion of share-based awards and convertible notes that are considered dilutive based on the impact of the add backs included in Adjusted Net Income above.
