VOLT INFORMATION SCIENCES, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
For the Fiscal Periods Ended May 4, 2014 and April 28, 2013
(Unaudited)

NOTE 1: Basis of Presentation

Basis of Presentation
The accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements of Volt Information Sciences, Inc. ("Volt" or the "Company") have been prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles, consistent in all material respects with those applied in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended November 3, 2013. The Company makes estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported. Actual results could differ from those estimates and changes in estimates are reflected in the period in which they become known. Accounting for certain expenses, including income taxes, are based on full year assumptions, and the financial statements reflect all normal adjustments that, in the opinion of management, are necessary for fair presentation of the interim periods presented. The interim information is unaudited and is prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), which provides for omission of certain information and footnote disclosures. This interim financial information should be read in connection with the consolidated financial statements in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended November 3, 2013.
The Company’s fiscal year ends on the Sunday nearest October 31st. The 2014 fiscal year consists of 52 weeks while the 2013 fiscal year consisted of 53 weeks. The three and six month periods ended in fiscal 2014 and 2013 each consisted of 13 weeks and 26 weeks, respectively.
Restatement, investigations and remediation costs are discussed further in our Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended November 3, 2013, and are comprised of financial and legal consulting, audit and related costs of the restatement, related investigations, and completion of delayed filings required under SEC regulations.

NOTE 2: Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
From time to time, new accounting pronouncements are issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") or other standard setting bodies. Unless otherwise discussed, the Company believes that the impact of recently issued standards that are not yet effective will not have a material impact on its consolidated financial position or results of operations upon adoption.
 
New Accounting Standards Not Yet Adopted by the Company

In April 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2014-08, Presentation of Financial Statements and Property, Plant and Equipment: Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity, which requires only disposals representing a strategic shift in operations that have a major effect on operations and financial results to be presented in discontinued operations.   This guidance also requires expanded financial disclosures about discontinued operations and significant disposals that do not qualify as discontinued operations.  This standard is effective for fiscal years and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2014.  The Company is currently assessing the impact of the adoption of this guidance on the consolidated financial statements, but it is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position or results of operations upon adoption in the first quarter of fiscal 2016.

In May 2014, the FASB and the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB") issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606).  This guidance substantially converges final standards on revenue recognition between the FASB and IASB providing a framework on addressing revenue recognition issues. Upon the effective date, the ASU replaces almost all existing revenue recognition guidance, including industry specific guidance, in United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP").  This ASU is effective for fiscal years and interim reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016 and will become effective for the Company in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018.  The Company is currently assessing the impact that the adoption of this standard will have on its consolidated financial statements or related disclosures.

NOTE 3: Restricted Cash and Short-Term Investments

Restricted cash and short-term investments include amounts related to requirements under certain contracts with managed service program customers for whom the Company manages the customers’ contingent staffing requirements, including processing of associate vendor billings into single, combined customer billings and distribution of payments to associate vendors on behalf of customers, as well as minimum cash deposits required to be maintained as collateral associated with the Company’s Short-Term Credit Facility. Distribution of payments to associate vendors are generally made shortly after receipt of payment from customers, with undistributed amounts included in restricted cash and accounts payable between receipt and distribution of these amounts. Changes in

5



restricted cash collateral for credit facilities is reflected in financing activities while changes in restricted cash under managed service programs is classified as an operating activity, as this cash is directly related to the operations of this business.

At May 4, 2014 and November 3, 2013, restricted cash and short-term investments included $13.2 million and $15.6 million, respectively, restricted for payment to associate vendors and $28.8 million and $31.8 million, respectively, restricted as collateral under the Short-Term Credit Facility.

At May 4, 2014 and November 3, 2013, restricted cash and short-term investments included $5.7 million and $6.1 million, respectively, of short-term investments. These short-term investments primarily consisted of the fair value of deferred compensation investments corresponding to employees’ selections, primarily in mutual funds, based on quoted prices in active markets for identical assets.

NOTE 4: Hedging

The Company enters into non-derivative financial instruments to hedge its net investment in certain foreign subsidiaries. During the first six months of fiscal 2014 and 2013, the Company primarily used short-term foreign currency borrowings to hedge its net investments in certain foreign operations.

At May 4, 2014 and November 3, 2013, the Company had outstanding $22.5 million and $22.3 million, respectively, of foreign currency denominated short-term borrowings used to hedge the Company’s net investment in certain foreign subsidiaries. The Company does not designate and document these instruments as hedges under Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 815 “Derivatives and Hedging,” and as a result gains and losses associated with these instruments are included in Foreign Exchange Gain (Loss), net in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. During the second quarter of fiscal 2014 and 2013, net gains (losses) on these borrowings and instruments of $(0.5) million and $0.5 million, respectively, were included in Foreign Exchange Gain (Loss), net in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. For the six months ended May 4, 2014 and April 28, 2013, net gains (losses) on these borrowings and instruments of $(0.4) million and $0.4 million, respectively, were included in Foreign Exchange Gain (Loss), net in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

NOTE 5: Income Taxes

Under ASC 270, “Interim Reporting,” and ASC 740-270, “Income Taxes – Intra Period Tax Allocation,” the Company is required to adjust its effective tax rate for each quarter to be consistent with the estimated annual effective tax rate. Jurisdictions with a projected loss for the full year where no tax benefit can be recognized are excluded from the calculation of the estimated annual effective tax rate.

The provision for income taxes consists of provisions for federal, state and foreign income taxes. Accordingly, the effective income tax rate is a composite rate reflecting the geographic mix of earnings in various tax jurisdictions and applicable rates. Our interim provision for income taxes is measured using an estimated annual effective tax rate, adjusted for discrete items that occur within the periods presented. Our future effective tax rates could be adversely affected by earnings being lower than anticipated in countries with lower statutory rates, greater losses than anticipated in countries with lower statutory tax rates, increases in recorded valuation allowances of tax assets, or changes in tax laws.

The provision for income taxes in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was $2.4 million compared to $0.6 million in 2013 and $3.4 million compared to $1.2 million for the six months ended May 4, 2014 and April 28, 2013, respectively. The Company’s cumulative results for substantially all United States domestic and certain non-United States jurisdictions for the most recent three-year period is a loss. Accordingly, a valuation allowance has been established for substantially all loss carryforwards and other net deferred tax assets for these jurisdictions, resulting in an effective tax rate that is significantly different than the statutory rate.

NOTE 6: Debt

The Company had borrowings at May 4, 2014 of $147.5 million under various short-term credit facilities that provided for up to $245.0 million in borrowings and letters of credit, under which it was required to maintain cash collateral of $28.8 million. Available borrowing was $18.2 million under the $200.0 million Short-Term Financing Program and $22.5 million under the $45.0 million Short-Term Credit Facility as of May 4, 2014.

At May 4, 2014 and November 3, 2013, the Company had outstanding borrowing under the Short-Term Financing Program of $125.0 million and $142.0 million, respectively, and bore a weighted average annual interest rate of 1.7% and 1.6% during the second quarter of fiscal 2014 and 2013, respectively, and 1.6% during the first six months of 2014 and 2013, which is inclusive of certain facility and program fees.


6



At May 4, 2014 and November 3, 2013, the Company had drawn under the Short-Term Credit Facility $22.5 million and $22.3 million, respectively, in various currencies used to hedge the Company’s net investment in certain foreign subsidiaries. During the second quarter of fiscal 2014 and 2013, borrowings bore a weighted average annual interest rate of 1.9% and 1.8%, respectively, and 1.9% and 2.0% during the first six months of 2014 and 2013, respectively, which is inclusive of the facility fee.

Options to purchase 465,450 and 532,350 shares of the Company’s common stock were outstanding at May 4, 2014 and April 28, 2013, respectively. Additionally, there were 60,001 and 56,667 restricted shares outstanding at May 4, 2014 and April 28, 2013, respectively. The options and restricted shares were not included in the computation of diluted loss per share in the three months and six months of fiscal 2014 and 2013 because the effect of their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive as a result of the Company’s net loss position in those fiscal periods.

NOTE 8: Commitments and Contingencies

(a)
Legal Proceedings

The Company is involved in various claims and legal actions arising in the ordinary course of business. The Company’s loss contingencies consist primarily of claims and legal actions related to contingent worker employment matters in the Staffing Services segment. These matters are at varying stages of investigation, arbitration or adjudication. The Company has accrued for losses on individual matters that are both probable and reasonably estimable.

Estimates are based on currently available information and assumptions. Significant judgment is required in both the determination of probability and the determination of whether a matter is reasonably estimable. The Company’s estimates may change and actual expenses could differ in the future as additional information becomes available.

(b)
Indemnification

The Company indemnifies its officers, directors and certain employees for certain events or occurrences while the employee, officer or director is, or was, serving at the Company’s request in such capacity, as permitted under New York law.

NOTE 9: Segment Data

The Company’s operating segments are determined in accordance with the Company’s internal management structure, which is based on operating activities.

Segment operating income (loss) is comprised of segment net revenues less direct cost of staffing services revenue or cost of other revenue, selling, administrative and other operating costs, amortization of purchased intangible assets and restructuring costs. The Company allocates all operating costs except for the corporate-wide general and administrative costs and restatement, investigations and remediation costs to the segments. These allocations are included in the calculation of each segment’s operating income (loss).

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Management’s discussion and analysis ("MD&A") of financial condition and results of operations is provided as a supplement to and should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes to enhance the understanding of our results of operations, financial condition and cash flows. This MD&A should be read in conjunction with the MD&A found in our Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended November 3, 2013, as filed with the SEC on January 31, 2014 (the “2013 Form 10-K”). References in this document to “Volt,” “Company,” “we,” “us” and “our” mean Volt Information Sciences, Inc. and our consolidated subsidiaries, unless the context requires otherwise. The statements below should also be read in conjunction with the description of the risks and uncertainties set forth from time to time in our reports and other filings made with the SEC, including under Part I, “Item 1A. Risk Factors” of the 2013 Form 10-K.

Unrecognized Revenue - Non-GAAP Measures

We sometimes provide services despite a customer arrangement not yet being finalized, or continue to provide services under an expired arrangement while a renewal arrangement is being finalized. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) usually requires that services revenue be deferred until arrangements are finalized or in some cases until cash is received, which causes some periods to include the expense of providing services although the related revenue is not recognized until a subsequent period (“Unrecognized Revenue”). The discussion herein refers to financial data determined both using GAAP as well as on a non-GAAP proforma basis. The non-GAAP proforma basis includes adjustments for Unrecognized Revenue so that revenue is shown in the same period as the related services are provided. This non-GAAP financial information is used by management and provided herein primarily to provide a more complete understanding of the Company’s business results and trends. This non-GAAP information should not be considered an alternative for, or in isolation from, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. In addition, this measure may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Overview

The second quarter of fiscal 2014 showed year-over-year improvements in operating results across all of our reportable segments
compared to fiscal 2013. Despite an almost 15% decrease in revenue, our Staffing Services segment operating income and the direct margin percentage improved as a result of actions taken in recent quarters including the divestiture of the Procurestaff business, the reorganization of our traditional staffing business and our continuing initiative to reduce exposure to customers with unprofitable business terms. Demand for traditional staffing was lower at our largest enterprise customers compared to last year, but has increased sequentially compared to the first quarter of 2014 across most of those customers.

Operating income in the second quarter of 2014 improved $17.5 million, ($12.4 million proforma) resulting from $6.8 million lower restatement, investigations and remediation costs, $5.7 million ($4.5 million proforma) improvement from the Staffing Services segment, primarily due to lower vendor management system development costs resulting from our divestiture of Procurestaff in the first quarter of 2014 and lower recruiting and indirect costs, $0.8 million improvement in the Computer Services segment primarily from lower cost of revenue in response to lower delivery and administrative costs, and $4.2 million ($0.2 million proforma) improvement from our Other segment primarily from increased information technology infrastructure services at similar margins.

Operating results for the first six months of fiscal 2014 improved $19.3 million to a loss of $14.4 million from a loss of $33.7 million in 2013, and proforma results improved $16.5 million to a proforma loss of $15.2 million from a proforma loss of $31.7 million in 2013. The Staffing Services segment operating income decreased $2.6 million (proforma $0.1 million) primarily due to a multi-year indirect tax recovery in 2013, and lower direct margins offset by a decrease in selling, administrative and other operating costs as direct margin and proforma direct margin improved to 14.0% and 13.9% from 13.2% and 13.0% in 2013, respectively. Without the Staffing Services segment $3.0 million indirect tax recovery in 2013, operating results in the first six months would have increased $0.4 million and proforma operating results increased $2.9 million. The Computer Services segment improved $0.7 million primarily from lower cost of revenue in response to lower delivery and administrative costs, and the Other segment improved $5.8 million ($0.5 million proforma) primarily from increased information technology infrastructure services at similar margins.

Cash generated during the first six months of 2014 from changes in operating assets and liabilities (primarily a reduction in Staffing segment accounts receivable) was $31.4 million, offset by $10.2 million used for operating activities resulting in net cash from operations of $21.2 million. The net cash generated from operations was used primarily to reduce borrowing under our short-term financing program which is secured by the Staffing segment accounts receivable. On May 4, 2014 we had $18.2 million borrowing available under the short-term financing program based on current eligible collateral, and a maximum of $75.0 million available to fund increased eligible staffing segment receivable growth.

Consolidated Results of Operations (Q2 2014 vs. Q2 2013)

Net revenue: Net revenue in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 decreased $68.2 million to $451.5 million from $519.7 million in fiscal 2013, and proforma net revenue decreased $73.4 million, or 14.0%, to $449.7 million from $523.1 million in fiscal 2013. The change in revenue was the result of decreased Staffing Services revenues of $70.0 million (proforma of $71.2 million) resulting from fewer contingent workers on assignment primarily at our largest enterprise customers where current demand levels are lower than in the prior year, our exit of certain customers as part of our continued focus on exiting or reducing business levels with customers where profitability or business terms are unfavorable, and with respect to GAAP results $1.2 million lower net staffing Unrecognized Revenue. In addition, Computer Systems revenues decreased $3.4 million from lower directory assistance software services revenue resulting from approximately 13% lower transaction volumes at slightly lower rates and lower maintenance and system revenue, while sales of our full-featured call center software (“OnDemand”) were flat. These decreases were partially offset by higher information technology infrastructure services revenue driven primarily by a $3.8 million deferral of revenue in 2013.

Direct cost of staffing services revenue: Direct cost of Staffing Services revenue in the second quarter of 2014 decreased $67.2 million, or 16.3%, to $345.9 million from $413.1 million in 2013. This decrease was primarily the result of fewer contingent staff on assignment, and lower managed service program costs consistent with the related decrease in revenues. Direct margin of Staffing Services revenue as a percent of staffing revenue and proforma staffing revenue in 2014 was 15.0% and 14.6%, respectively, from 13.3% for both in 2013. The direct margin and proforma direct margin percentage increased by 1.3% primarily due to higher traditional staffing margins. The increase in the GAAP direct margin percentage included an additional 0.4% impact due to lower net staffing Unrecognized Revenue in the second quarter of 2014 from 2013.

Cost of other revenue: Cost of other revenue in the second quarter of 2014 decreased $1.2 million, or 3.1%, to $38.7 million from $39.9 million in 2013. This decrease was primarily a result of Computer Systems segment lower delivery costs in response to lower directory assistance revenue, while costs of our call center revenue increased slightly and continued at negative margins. This decrease was partially offset by increased costs for our information technology infrastructure services at similar margins and primarily due to higher volume.

Selling, administrative and other operating costs: Selling, administrative and other operating costs in the second quarter of 2014 decreased $10.0 million, or 13.8%, to $62.6 million from $72.6 million in 2013 primarily due to $8.2 million lower traditional staffing recruiting and indirect costs in response to lower revenue and restructuring, $1.8 million lower vendor management system development costs resulting from the divestiture of Procurestaff in the first quarter of 2014, and $1.3 million lower administrative costs in our Computer Systems segment, partially offset by increases in other selling, administrative and other operating costs.

Restructuring costs: Restructuring costs in the second quarter of 2014 were primarily comprised of workforce reductions in our Staffing Services segment in North America in response to lower revenue levels and our traditional staffing services reorganization.

Restructuring costs in the second quarter of 2013 were primarily comprised of workforce reductions in our Computer Systems segment in response to declining directory assistance revenue.

Restatement, investigations and remediation: Costs in the second quarter of 2014 amounted to $0.6 million compared to $7.4 million in 2013. The decreased costs were a result of the substantial completion of the restatement in the second quarter of 2013 and completion of delayed filings during the first quarter of 2014.

Operating income (loss): Operating income in the second quarter of 2014 of $0.6 million results from the above reasons and included restatement, investigations and remediation costs of $0.6 million and restructuring costs of $0.9 million ($0.3 million reflected in corporate general and administrative) as we reduced headcount in response to lower revenue levels and our staffing segment reorganization. Excluding these items we would have had operating income of $2.1 million and a proforma income of $0.3 million.

Operating loss in the second quarter of 2013 of $16.9 million included restatement, investigations, and remediation costs of $7.4 million, and restructuring costs of $0.9 million as we reduced headcount in response to lower revenue levels. Without these items we would have had an operating loss of $8.6 million and a proforma operating loss of $5.3 million.

Other income (expense), net: Other expense in the second quarter of 2014 increased $1.9 million to $1.8 million from income of $0.1 million in 2013, primarily related to non-cash foreign exchange gains and losses on intercompany balances.

Income tax provision: Income tax provision was $2.4 million compared to $0.6 million in the second quarter of 2014 and 2013, respectively. The provision in both periods primarily related to locations outside of the United States.

Results of Operations by Segment (Q2 2014 vs. Q2 2013)

Staffing Services

Net revenue: The segment’s net revenue in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 decreased $70.0 million to $406.7 million from $476.7 million in fiscal 2013, and proforma net revenue decreased $71.2 million, or 14.9%, to $405.1 million from $476.3 million in 2013. This decrease is due to fewer contingent workers on assignment primarily at our largest enterprise customers where current demand levels are lower than in the prior year, our exit of certain customers as part of our continued focus on exiting or reducing business levels with customers where profitability or business terms are unfavorable, and with respect to GAAP results $1.2 million lower net staffing Unrecognized Revenue.

Direct cost of staffing services revenue: The segment's direct cost of Staffing Services revenue in the second quarter of 2014 decreased $67.2 million, or 16.3%, to $345.9 million from $413.1 million in 2013. This decrease was primarily the result of fewer contingent staff on assignment, and lower managed service program costs consistent with the related decrease in revenues. Direct margin of Staffing Services revenue as a percent of staffing revenue and proforma staffing revenue in 2014 was 15.0% and 14.6%, respectively, from 13.3% for both in 2013. The direct margin and proforma direct margin percentage increased by 1.3% primarily due to higher traditional staffing margins. The increase in the GAAP direct margin percentage included an additional 0.4% impact due to lower net staffing Unrecognized Revenue in the second quarter of 2014 from 2013.

Selling, administrative and other operating costs: The segment’s selling, administrative and other operating costs in the second quarter of 2014 decreased $8.9 million, or 14.3%, to $53.2 million from $62.1 million in 2013, primarily due to $8.2 million lower traditional staffing recruiting and indirect costs in response to the lower revenue and restructuring and $1.8 million lower vendor management system development costs resulting from the divestiture of Procurestaff in the first quarter of 2014, partially offset by increases in other selling, administrative and other operating costs. As a percent of staffing revenue and proforma staffing revenue these costs were 13.1% for both in the second quarter of 2014 and 13.0% for both in the second quarter of 2013.

Restructuring costs: Restructuring costs in the second quarter of 2014 were primarily comprised of workforce reductions in response to lower revenue levels and our traditional staffing services reorganization. Restructuring costs in the second quarter of 2013 were in connection with our focus on achieving acceptable operating income from our traditional time and materials staffing services in North America and exiting or reducing business levels with customers where profitability or business terms were unfavorable.

Segment operating income: The segment’s operating income in the second quarter of 2014 increased by $5.7 million to $7.1 million from $1.4 million in 2013, and proforma operating income increased $4.5 million to $5.4 million from $0.9 million in 2013. The increase in operating income is primarily due to a decrease in selling, administrative and other operating costs of $8.9 million in response to the decline in traditional staffing revenues and reorganization of our North American staffing operations, partially offset by lower direct margins of $4.0 million.

Net revenue: The segment’s net revenue in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 decreased $3.4 million, or 17.8%, to $15.4 million from $18.8 million in fiscal 2013. This decrease was primarily the result of approximately 13% lower transaction volumes at slightly lower rates and lower maintenance and system revenue, while sales of our full-featured call center software ("OnDemand") were flat.

Cost of other revenue: The segment’s cost of other revenue in the second quarter of 2014 decreased $2.1 million, or 12.9%, to $14.6 million from $16.7 million in 2013. This decrease was primarily a result of lower delivery costs in response to lower directory assistance revenue, while costs of our call center revenue increased slightly and continued at negative margins.

Selling, administrative and other operating costs: The segment’s selling, administrative and other operating costs in the second quarter of 2014 decreased $1.1 million, or 18.5%, to $4.9 million from $6.0 million in 2013. This decrease resulted from lower administrative costs in response to decreased business levels offset by higher selling costs as we increased efforts to sell our full-featured call center software ("OnDemand").

Restructuring costs: Restructuring costs in the second quarter of 2013 were comprised of headcount reduction severance costs in North America, the United Kingdom and Germany due to the continued decline in the directory assistance business both domestically and internationally.

Segment operating loss: The segment’s operating loss in the second quarter of 2014 decreased $0.8 million, or 16.2%, to $4.2 million from $5.0 million in 2013. The decrease in operating loss resulted primarily from the impact of the segment's restructuring activities and lower administrative costs.

Other

Net revenue: The segment’s net revenue in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 increased $5.1 million, to $29.3 million from $24.2 million in fiscal 2013, and proforma net revenue increased by $1.2 million, or 4.1%, to $29.2 million from $28.0 million in 2013. The increase is primarily due to information technology infrastructure services higher revenue driven primarily by a $3.8 million deferral of revenue in 2013, and by new customers and to a lesser extent from net expanded business with existing customers.

Cost of other revenue: The segment’s cost of other revenue in the second quarter of 2014 increased $1.0 million, or 4.0%, to $24.1 million from $23.1 million in 2013. The increase is primarily in response to higher information technology infrastructure services volume.

Selling, administrative and other operating costs: The segment’s selling, administrative and other operating costs remained consistent at $4.5 million in the second quarter of 2014 and 2013.

Segment operating income (loss): The segment’s operating results in the second quarter of 2014 increased $4.2 million to income of $0.7 million from a loss of $3.5 million in 2013, and proforma operating income increased $0.2 million to $0.5 million from $0.3 million in 2013, primarily due to increased information technology infrastructure services at similar margins.

Consolidated Results of Operations (Q2 2014 YTD vs. Q2 2013 YTD)

Net revenue: Net revenue in the first six months of fiscal 2014 decreased $151.3 million to $888.6 million from $1,039.9 million in fiscal 2013, and proforma net revenue decreased $154.1 million, or 14.8%, to $887.9 million from $1,042.0 million in 2013. The change in revenue was the result of decreased Staffing Services revenues of $152.1 million (proforma of $149.6 million) resulting from fewer contingent workers on assignment primarily at our largest enterprise customers where demand levels are lower than in the prior year, our exit of certain customers as part of our continued focus on exiting or reducing business levels with customers where profitability or business terms are unfavorable, and with respect to GAAP results $2.5 million higher net staffing Unrecognized Revenue. In addition, Computer Systems revenues decreased $8.1 million from several large directory assistance implementations reaching the end of the maintenance periods over which the projects were being amortized, approximately 23% lower transaction volumes, and lower pricing and maintenance levels. These decreases were partially offset by higher information technology infrastructure services revenue driven primarily by a $5.0 million deferral of revenue in 2013, and by new customers and to a lesser extent from net expanded business with existing customers.

Direct cost of staffing services revenue: Direct cost of Staffing Services revenue in the first six months of 2014 decreased $137.7 million, or 16.7%, to $687.4 million from $825.1 million in 2013. This decrease was primarily the result of fewer contingent staff on assignment, and lower managed service program costs consistent with the related decrease in revenues. Direct margin of Staffing Services revenue as a percent of staffing revenue and proforma staffing revenue in 2014 was 14.0% and 13.9% from 13.2% and 13.0% in 2013, respectively. The direct and proforma margin percentage increased by 0.9% primarily due to higher traditional staffing margins. This increase was offset by a 0.1% decrease in the GAAP direct margin percentage due to higher net staffing Unrecognized Revenue in the first six months of 2014 from 2013.

Cost of other revenue: Cost of other revenue in the first six months of 2014 decreased $3.7 million, or 4.6%, to $75.9 million from $79.6 million in 2013. This decrease was primarily a result of Computer Systems segment lower delivery costs in response to lower directory assistance revenue, restructuring activities, and decreased data acquisition costs, while costs of our call center software ("OnDemand") increased slightly and continued at negative margins. This decrease was partially offset by increased costs for our information technology infrastructure services at similar margins and primarily due to higher volume.

Selling, administrative and other operating costs: Selling, administrative and other operating costs in the first six months of 2014 decreased $14.0 million, or 9.9%, to $126.7 million from $140.7 million in 2013 due to $15.9 million lower traditional staffing recruiting and indirect costs in response to the lower revenue and restructuring, $2.8 million lower vendor management system development costs resulting from the divestiture of Procurestaff in the first quarter of 2014, $1.9 million lower administrative costs in our Computer Systems segment, partially offset by increases in other selling, administrative and other operating costs. The first six months of 2013 included a $3.0 million indirect tax recovery related to multiple years. Adjusting for the indirect tax recovery, selling, administrative and other operating costs would have decreased $17.0 million, or 11.8%.

Restructuring costs: Restructuring costs in the first six months of 2014 were primarily comprised of workforce reductions in our Staffing Services segment resulting from our divestiture of Procurestaff and our traditional staffing restructuring and lower revenue in our Computer Systems segment in response to declining directory assistance revenue.

Restructuring costs in the first six months of 2013 were comprised of workforce reductions in our Computer Systems and Staffing Services segments in response to lower revenue and our focus on achieving acceptable operating income from our traditional time and materials staffing services in North America and exiting or reducing business levels with customers where profitability or business terms are unfavorable.

Restatement, investigations and remediation: Costs in the first six months of 2014 amounted to $5.3 million compared to $21.2 million in 2013. The decreased costs were a result of the substantial completion of the restatement in the second quarter of 2013 and completion of delayed filings during the first quarter of 2014.

Operating loss: Operating loss in the first six months of 2014 of $14.4 million results from the above reasons and included restatement, investigations and remediation costs of $5.3 million and restructuring costs of $2.3 million ($0.3 million reflected in corporate general and administrative) primarily in our Staffing Services segment in connection with workforce reductions in response to lower revenue levels and our staffing segment reorganization and the sale of our vendor management system assets and the continued decline in the directory assistance business within the Computer Systems business, and with respect to GAAP results $2.8 million lower Unrecognized Revenue between 2014 and 2013. Excluding these items we would have had an operating loss of $6.8 million and a proforma loss of $7.6 million.

Operating loss in the first six months of 2013 of $33.7 million included restatement, investigations, and remediation costs of $21.2 million, a $3.0 million indirect tax recovery related to multiple years, and restructuring costs of $1.7 million. Without these items we would have had an operating loss of $13.8 million and a proforma operating loss of $11.8 million.

16




Other income (expense), net: Other expense in the first six months of 2014 increased $3.0 million to $2.7 million from income of $0.3 million in 2013, primarily related to non-cash foreign exchange gains and losses on intercompany balances.

Income tax provision: Income tax provision was $3.4 million compared to $1.2 million in the first six months of 2014 and 2013, respectively. The provision in both periods primarily related to locations outside of the United States.

Results of Operations by Segment (Q2 2014 YTD vs. Q2 2013 YTD)

Staffing Services

Net revenue: The segment’s net revenue in the first six months of fiscal 2014 decreased $152.1 million to $799.0 million from $951.1 million in fiscal 2013, and proforma net revenue decreased $149.6 million, or 15.8%, to $798.5 million from $948.1 million in 2013. This decrease is due to fewer contingent workers on assignment primarily at our largest enterprise customers where current demand levels are lower than in the prior year, our exit of certain customers as part of our continued focus on exiting or reducing business levels with customers where profitability or business terms are unfavorable, and with respect to GAAP results $2.5 million higher net staffing Unrecognized Revenue.

Direct cost of staffing services revenue: The segment's direct cost of Staffing Services revenue in the first six months of 2014 decreased $137.7 million, or 16.7%, to $687.4 million from $825.1 million in 2013. This decrease was primarily the result of fewer contingent staff on assignment, and lower managed service program costs consistent with the related decrease in revenues. Direct margin of Staffing Services revenue as a percent of staffing revenue and proforma staffing revenue in 2014 was 14.0% and 13.9% from 13.2% and 13.0% in 2013, respectively. The direct and proforma margin percentage increased by 0.9% primarily due to higher traditional staffing margins. This increase was offset by a 0.1% decrease in the GAAP direct margin percentage due to higher net staffing Unrecognized Revenue in the first six months of fiscal 2014 from 2013.

Selling, administrative and other operating costs: The segment’s selling, administrative and other operating costs in the first six months of 2014 decreased $12.6 million, or 10.5%, to $107.4 million from $120.0 million in 2013 primarily due to $15.9 million lower traditional staffing recruiting and indirect costs in response to the lower revenue and restructuring and $2.8 million lower vendor management system development costs resulting from the divestiture of Procurestaff in the first quarter of 2014. As a percent of staffing revenue and proforma staffing revenue in the first six months of 2014 these costs were 13.4% and 13.5% from 12.6% and 12.7% in 2013, respectively. The first quarter of 2013 included a $3.0 million indirect tax recovery related to multiple years. Adjusting for the indirect tax recovery, the segment’s selling, administrative and other operating costs would have decreased $15.6 million, or 12.7%.

Restructuring costs: Restructuring costs in the first six months of 2014 were primarily comprised of workforce reductions resulting from our divestiture of Procurestaff and our traditional staffing restructuring and lower revenue. Restructuring costs in the first six months of 2013 were in connection with our focus on achieving acceptable operating income from our traditional time and materials staffing services in North America and exiting or reducing business levels with customers where profitability or business terms are unfavorable.

Segment operating income: The segment’s operating income in the first six months of 2014 decreased by $2.6 million to $2.9 million from $5.5 million in 2013, and proforma operating income decreased $0.1 million to $2.4 million from $2.5 million in 2013. The decrease in operating income is primarily due to lower direct margins of $14.4 million ($11.9 million proforma) and a $3.0 million indirect tax recovery in 2013 related to multiple years, partially offset by a decrease in selling, administrative and other operating costs of $15.6 million from the reorganization of our North American staffing operations and in response to the decline in traditional staffing revenues. Without the 2013 indirect tax recovery, operating income in the first six months would have been an increase of $0.4 million and proforma operating income an increase of $2.9 million.

Computer Systems

Net revenue: The segment’s net revenue in the first six months of fiscal 2014 decreased $8.1 million, or 20.7%, to $30.9 million from $39.0 million in fiscal 2013. This decrease was primarily the result of several large directory assistance implementations reaching the end of the maintenance periods over which the projects were being amortized, approximately 23% lower transaction volumes, and lower pricing and maintenance levels.

Cost of other revenue: The segment’s cost of other revenue in the first six months of 2014 decreased $6.9 million, or 19.7%, to $27.7 million from $34.6 million in 2013. This decrease was primarily a result of $7.9 million lower delivery costs in response to lower directory assistance revenue, while costs of our call center software (“OnDemand”) increased slightly and continued at negative margins.

17




Selling, administrative and other operating costs: The segment’s selling, administrative and other operating costs in the first six months of 2014 decreased $1.4 million, or 11.8%, to $10.2 million from $11.6 million in 2013. This decrease resulted primarily from $1.9 million lower administrative costs in response to decreased business levels offset by $0.8 million higher selling costs as we increased efforts to sell our full-featured call center software ("OnDemand").

Restructuring costs: Restructuring costs in the first six months of 2014 was comprised of workforce reduction severance costs in response to lower revenue. Restructuring costs in the first six months of 2013 were comprised of headcount reduction severance costs in North America, the United Kingdom and Germany due to the continued decline in the directory assistance business both domestically and internationally.

Segment operating loss: The segment’s operating loss in the first six months of 2014 decreased $0.7 million, or 8.8%, to $8.1 million from $8.8 million in 2013. This decrease was primarily from lower revenues and related lower costs, offset by our increased sales efforts related to our full-featured call center software ("OnDemand").

Other

Net revenue: The segment’s net revenue in the first six months of fiscal 2014 increased $8.8 million, to $58.7 million from $49.9 million in fiscal 2013, and proforma net revenue increased by $3.6 million, or 6.5%, to $58.5 million from $54.9 million in 2013. The increase is primarily due to information technology infrastructure services including a $5.0 million deferral of revenue in the first six months of 2013, and by new customers and to a lesser extent from net expanded business with existing customers.

Cost of other revenue: The segment’s cost of other revenue in the first six months of 2014 increased $3.1 million, or 6.9%, to $48.2 million from $45.1 million in 2013. The increase is primarily in response to higher information technology infrastructure services volume.

Selling, administrative and other operating costs: The segment’s selling, administrative and other operating costs remained consistent at $9.1 million in the first six months of 2014 and 2013.

Segment operating income (loss): The segment’s operating results in the first six months of 2014 increased $5.8 million to income of $1.2 million from a loss of $4.6 million in 2013, and proforma operating income increased $0.5 million to $1.0 million from $0.5 million in 2013, primarily due to increased information technology infrastructure services at similar margins.

Cash Flows - Financing Activities

The net cash used in financing activities in the six months ended May 4, 2014 was $17.0 million, compared to net cash provided of $13.9 million in the six months ended April 28, 2013. In 2014, net repayments of borrowings for the accounts receivable securitization program and other borrowing totaled $19.6 million compared to a net increase in borrowings of $10.0 million in 2013.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Credit Markets and Availability of Credit
At May 4, 2014, we had short-term credit facilities which provided for borrowing and issuance of letters of credit of up to an aggregate of $245.0 million, including our $200.0 million accounts receivable securitization program (“Short-Term Financing Program”) and our $45.0 million revolving credit agreement (“Short-Term Credit Facility”). Available borrowing under the Short-Term Financing Program is based on eligible receivable levels. Borrowings under the Short-Term Credit Facility require full cash collateralization.

As of May 4, 2014, we had total outstanding short-term borrowings of $147.5 million and were required to maintain $28.8 million in cash collateral. At May 4, 2014, the available borrowing under the short-term borrowing facilities included $18.2 million under the Short-Term Financing Program and $22.5 million under the Short-Term Credit Facility.

Securitization Program
The Short-Term Financing Program provides for maximum borrowing of $200.0 million under a credit agreement secured by receivables from the Staffing Services business that are sold to a wholly-owned, consolidated, bankruptcy-remote subsidiary and are available first to satisfy the lender. The program expires on December 31, 2016 and the benchmark interest rate for which interest is charged on the sale of receivables is a LIBOR index. The program is subject to termination under certain circumstances including the default rate on receivables, as defined, exceeding a specified threshold or the rate of collections on receivables failing to meet a specified threshold. At May 4, 2014, we were in compliance with the program covenants.

 
At May 4, 2014 and November 3, 2013, we had outstanding borrowing under the program of $125.0 million and $142.0 million, respectively, which bore a weighted average annual interest rate of 1.6% during the first six months of 2014 and 2013, inclusive of certain facility and program fees.

Credit Facilities
The Short-Term Credit Facility provides for borrowing in various currencies secured by cash collateral covering 105% of certain baseline amounts. The facility is subject to a facility fee and borrowings bear various interest rate options calculated using a combination of LIBOR and prime rates plus a margin over those rates. The facility expires on March 31, 2015. At May 4, 2014, we were in compliance with the facility covenants.

At May 4, 2014 and November 3, 2013, we had drawn under the facility $22.5 million and $22.3 million, respectively, in various currencies used to hedge our net investment in certain foreign subsidiaries. During the first six months of fiscal 2014 and 2013, borrowings bore a weighted average annual interest rate of 1.9% and 2.0%, respectively, inclusive of the facility fee.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

The information in this section should be read in conjunction with the information on financial market risk related to non-U.S. currency exchange rates, changes in interest rates and other financial market risks in Part II, Item 7A., “ Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk,” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended November 3, 2013.

Market risk is the potential economic gain or loss that may result from changes in market rates and prices. In the normal course of business, the Company’s earnings, cash flows and financial position are exposed to market risks relating to the impact of interest rate changes, foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations and changes in the market value of financial instruments. We limit these risks through risk management policies and procedures, including the use of derivatives.

Interest Rate Risk

We centrally manage our debt and investment portfolios considering investment opportunities and risks, tax consequences and overall financing strategies. At May 4, 2014, we had cash and cash equivalents on which interest income is earned at variable rates. At May 4, 2014, we also had credit lines with various domestic and foreign banks that provide for borrowings and letters of credit as well as a $200.0 million accounts receivable securitization program to provide additional liquidity to meet our short-term financing needs.

The interest rates on these borrowings and financings are variable and, therefore, interest and other expense and interest income are affected by the general level of U.S. and foreign interest rates. Based upon the current levels of cash invested, notes payable to banks and utilization of the securitization program, on a short-term basis, a hypothetical 1-percentage-point increase in interest rates would have increased net interest expense by $0.9 million.

We have a term loan with borrowing of $8.6 million at a fixed interest rate, and our interest expense related to this borrowing is not affected by changes in interest rates in the near term. The fair value of the fixed rate term loan was approximately $9.4 million at May 4, 2014. The fair values were calculated by applying the appropriate period end interest rates to our present streams of loan payments.

Foreign Currency Risk

We have operations in several foreign countries and conduct business in the local currency in these countries. As a result, we have risk associated with currency fluctuations as the value of the dollar fluctuates against foreign currencies, in particular the British pound, Euro, Canadian dollar and Uruguayan peso. These fluctuations impact reported earnings.

Fluctuations in currency exchange rates also impact the U.S. dollar amount of our net investment in foreign operations. The assets and liabilities of our foreign subsidiaries are translated into U.S. dollars at the exchange rates in effect at the fiscal period-end balance sheet date. Income and expense accounts are translated at an average exchange rate during the period which approximates the rates in effect at the transaction dates. The resulting translation adjustments are recorded in stockholders’ equity as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income. The U.S. dollar weakened relative to many foreign currencies as of May 4, 2014 compared to November 3, 2013. Consequently, stockholders’ equity increased by $1.9 million as a result of the foreign currency translation as of May 4, 2014.

To reduce exposure related to non-U.S. dollar denominated net investments that may give rise to a foreign currency transaction gain or loss, we may enter into derivative and non-derivative financial instruments to hedge our net investment in certain foreign subsidiaries. We also may enter into forward foreign exchange contracts with third party banks to mitigate foreign currency risk. As of May 4, 2014, we had $22.5 million of foreign currency denominated borrowings (primarily Euro, British pound and Canadian dollar) that were used as economic hedges against the Company’s net investment in certain foreign operations. We do not designate and document these instruments as hedges under Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 815 “Derivatives and Hedging,” and as a result, gains and losses associated with these instruments are included in Foreign Exchange Gain (Loss), net in our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

Based upon the current levels of net foreign assets, a hypothetical 10% devaluation of the U.S. dollar as compared to these currencies as of May 4, 2014 would result in an approximate $1.5 million positive translation adjustment recorded in other comprehensive income within stockholders’ equity. Conversely, a hypothetical 10% appreciation of the U.S. dollar as compared to these currencies as of May 4, 2014 would result in an approximate $1.5 million negative translation adjustment recorded in other comprehensive income within stockholders’ equity. We do not use derivative instruments for trading or other speculative purposes.

Equity Risk

Our investments are exposed to market risk as they relate to changes in market value. We hold investments primarily in mutual funds for the benefit of participants in our non-qualified deferred compensation plan, and changes in the market value of these investments result in offsetting changes in our liability under the non-qualified deferred compensation plans as the employees realize the rewards and bear the risks of their investment selections. At May 4, 2014, the total market value of these investments was $5.7 million.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
Volt maintains “disclosure controls and procedures,” as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures. In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, Volt’s management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and Volt’s management necessarily is required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. Volt has carried out an evaluation, as of the end of the period covered by this report, under the supervision and with the participation of Volt’s management, including its Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of Volt’s disclosure controls and procedures. Based upon their evaluation and subject to the foregoing, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that Volt’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

There have been no significant changes in Volt’s internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during the fiscal quarter ended May 4, 2014 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

 
ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
The Company is involved in various claims and legal actions arising in the ordinary course of business. The Company’s loss contingencies consist primarily of claims and legal actions related to contingent worker employment matters in the Staffing Services segment. These matters are at varying stages of investigation, arbitration or adjudication. The Company has accrued for losses on individual matters that are both probable and reasonably estimable.

Estimates are based on currently available information and assumptions. Significant judgment is required in both the determination of probability and the determination of whether a matter is reasonably estimable. The Company’s estimates may change and actual expenses could differ in the future as additional information becomes available. 

Since our 2013 Form 10-K, there have been no material developments in the material legal proceedings in which we are involved.
