The operating margin was 7.3% in the 2020 quarter and 3.1% in the 2019 quarter.Crawford Specialty SolutionsCrawford Specialty Solutions revenues before reimbursements were $67.5 million in the third quarter of 2020, down from $68.9 million in the same period of 2019.

The decrease for the three months ended September 30, 2020 was due to a decrease in self-insurance expenses and a $1.9 million credit from the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy, partially offset by an increase in incentive compensation.Income Tax Impact of First Quarter Goodwill ImpairmentThe Company recognized a non-cash goodwill impairment in the 2020 first quarter, totaling $17.7 million, related to its Crawford Claims Solutions segment. Due to the non-discrete income tax treatment of the goodwill impairment, the initial income tax benefit related to the impairment will normalize during the remainder of the year, resulting in a lower full year income tax benefit. During the 2020 third quarter, the impact of this treatment decreased the income tax benefit by $1.9 million, or $0.04 per share.Business Acquisitions and DispositionsOn June 12, 2020, the Company sold its 51% interest in Lloyd Warwick International (“LWI”) for cash proceeds of $19.6 million and payment of $3.6 million to settle intercompany indebtedness. In the third quarter, the Company recognized an additional $0.7 million related to net working capital adjustments under the terms of the acquisition agreement which increased the purchase price to $20.3 million. Due to the Company’s two-month reporting lag for reporting its international results, this transaction was recorded in the quarter ended September 30, 2020. The Company recognized a gain of $14.7 million ($11.7 million net of tax) on the disposition. The Company recognized an additional loss on the disposal of Crawford Compliance Inc. of $0.6 million in the third quarter. Both of these disposals were in our Crawford Specialty Solutions segment and resulted in a net gain of $0.21 per diluted share.On July 21, 2020, the Company acquired the remaining 15% membership interests of WeGoLook, LLC for $0.3 million. The non-compete agreements with the former minority members were terminated under the terms of the purchase agreement. As a result, the Company recognized $1.1 million of accelerated amortization on the non-compete agreement in the 2020 third quarter.Subsequent EventsOn October 1, 2020, the Company acquired the remaining 85% equity interests in Crawford Carvallo and its subsidiaries. Crawford Carvallo is a leading provider for loss adjusting, claims management solutions and legal services in Chile. The purchase price includes an initial lump-sum payment $11.6 million and a maximum of $11.7 million payable over the next six years based on achieving certain EBITDA performance goals.On November 1, 2020, the Company acquired 100% of HBA Group in Australia, including 100% of the stock in each of HBA Group’s entities HBA Legal, Pillion and Paratus. HBA Legal is a legal services provider that will complement the Company’s Crawford TPA Solutions segment in Australia. The purchase price includes an initial lump-sum payment of $5.0 million and a maximum $3.2 million payable over the next four years based on achieving certain revenue and EBITDA performance goals.COVID-19The Company estimates that COVID-19 negatively impacted its revenues in the range of $21.0 to $25.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020, and negatively impacted its revenues in the range of $46.0 to $54.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The Company expects the ongoing global economic slowdown resulting from COVID-19 could have a material impact to its results of operations, financial condition and cash flow in one or more future quarters.Balance Sheet and Cash FlowThe Company’s consolidated cash and cash equivalents position as of September 30, 2020, totaled $48.7 million, compared with $51.8 million at December 31, 2019. The Company’s total debt outstanding as of September 30, 2020, totaled $127.8 million, compared with $177.0 million at December 31, 2019.The Company’s operations provided $57.3 million of cash during 2020, compared with $42.3 million provided in 2019. The increase in cash provided by operating activities was primarily due to deferred payroll tax filings and a benefit from the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy, totaling $17.3 million. The Company incurred higher software development and capital expenditures in 2020, which partially offset the increase in cash flows from operations, leading to a free cash flow increase of $4.3 million as compared to the prior year.The Company made $3.0 million in contributions to its U.S. defined benefit pension plan and $0.5 million to its U.K. plans for 2020, compared with no contributions to the U.S. plan and $0.5 million to the U.K. plans in 2019.During 2020, the Company repurchased 155,351 shares of CRD-A and 161,459 of CRD-B at an average cost of $8.42 per share.

You may dial 1-855-859-2056 to listen to the replay.Non-GAAP PresentationIn the normal course of business, our operating segments incur certain out-of-pocket expenses that are thereafter reimbursed by our clients. Under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), these out-of-pocket expenses and associated reimbursements are required to be included when reporting expenses and revenues, respectively, in our consolidated results of operations. In the foregoing discussion and analysis of segment results of operations, we do not include a gross up of segment expenses and revenues for these pass-through reimbursed expenses. The amounts of reimbursed expenses and related revenues offset each other in our results of operations with no impact to our net income or operating earnings. A reconciliation of revenues before reimbursements to consolidated revenues determined in accordance with GAAP is self-evident from the face of the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations.Operating earnings is the primary financial performance measure used by our senior management and chief operating decision maker (“CODM”) to evaluate the financial performance of our Company and operating segments, and make resource allocation and certain compensation decisions. Unlike net income, segment operating earnings is not a standard performance measure found in GAAP. We believe this measure is useful to others in that it allows them to evaluate segment and consolidated operating performance using the same criteria used by our senior management and CODM. Consolidated operating earnings represent segment earnings including certain unallocated corporate and shared costs, but before net corporate interest expense, stock option expense, amortization of customer-relationship intangible assets, goodwill impairment, restructuring costs, arbitration and claims settlement, gain on disposition of businesses, income taxes and net income or loss attributable to noncontrolling interests and redeemable noncontrolling interests.Gross profit is defined as revenues less direct expenses which exclude indirect overhead expenses allocated to the business. Indirect expenses consist of centralized administrative support costs, regional and local shared services that are allocated to each segment based on usage.Adjusted EBITDA is not a term defined by GAAP and as a result our measure of adjusted EBITDA might not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. However, adjusted EBITDA is used by management to evaluate, assess and benchmark our operational results. The Company believes that adjusted EBITDA is relevant and useful information widely used by analysts, investors and other interested parties. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income attributable to shareholders of the Company with recurring adjustments for depreciation and amortization, net corporate interest expense, income taxes, stock-based compensation expense and foreign exchange fluctuations. Additionally, adjustments for non-recurring expenses for goodwill impairment, restructuring costs, arbitration and claim settlements and gain on disposition of businesses have been included in the calculation of adjusted EBITDA.Unallocated corporate and shared costs and credits include expenses and credits related to our chief executive officer and Board of Directors, certain provisions for bad debt allowances or subsequent recoveries such as those related to bankrupt clients, defined benefit pension costs or credits for our frozen U.S. pension plan, certain unallocated professional fees and certain self-insurance costs and recoveries that are not allocated to our individual operating segments.Income taxes, net corporate interest expense, stock option expense and amortization of customer-relationship intangible assets are recurring components of our net income, but they are not considered part of our segment operating earnings because they are managed on a corporate-wide basis. Income taxes are calculated for the Company on a consolidated basis based on statutory rates in effect in the various jurisdictions in which we provide services, and vary significantly by jurisdiction. Net corporate interest expense results from capital structure decisions made by senior management and the Board of Directors, affecting the Company as a whole. Stock option expense represents the non-cash costs generally related to stock options and employee stock purchase plan expenses which are not allocated to our operating segments. Amortization expense is a non-cash expense for finite-lived customer-relationship and trade name intangible assets acquired in business combinations. None of these costs relate directly to the performance of our services or operating activities and, therefore, are excluded from segment operating earnings in order to better assess the results of each segment’s operating activities on a consistent basis.A significant portion of our operations are international. These international operations subject us to foreign exchange fluctuations.

Due to the non-discrete income tax treatment of the first quarter goodwill impairment, the income tax benefit will normalize as income is earned during the remainder of the year, resulting in a lower full year income tax benefit.Following is information regarding the weighted average shares used in the computation of basic and diluted earnings per share: Three months ended Nine Months Ended  (in thousands)September 30, 2020 September 30, 2019 September 30, 2020 September 30, 2019  GAAP             Weighted-Average Shares Used to Compute Basic Earnings Per Share:             Class A Common Stock 30,643  30,645  30,575  30,701  Class B Common Stock 22,510  22,831  22,533  23,071  Weighted-Average Shares Used to Compute Diluted Earnings Per Share:             Class A Common Stock 30,937  31,140  30,810  31,116  Class B Common Stock 22,510  22,831  22,533  23,071                Non-GAAP (2)             Weighted-Average Shares Used to Compute Diluted Earnings Per Share:             Class A Common Stock 30,937  31,140  30,801  31,116  Class B Common Stock 22,510  22,831  22,533  23,071                (2) The Company determines year to date dilutive shares for GAAP reporting by averaging all quarterly dilutive shares for quarters where positive net income was reported. The Company had a net loss for GAAP reporting during the first quarter of 2020, that resulted in no additional dilutive securities added to the basic weighted average shares in calculating diluted weighted average shares for GAAP reporting as their impact would be anti-dilutive. As the Company had Non-GAAP positive net income for each quarter in 2020, dilutive securities from each quarter were averaged to determine Non-GAAP earnings per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.Further information regarding the Company’s operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, financial position as of September 30, 2020, and cash flows for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 is shown on the attached unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.About Crawford & CompanyBased in Atlanta, Crawford & Company (NYSE: CRD-A and CRD-B) is the world’s largest publicly listed independent provider of claims management and outsourcing solutions to carriers, brokers and corporates with an expansive global network serving clients in more than 70 countries.
