Los Angeles, CA, September 8, 2016 – Korn/Ferry International (NYSE: KFY), the preeminent global people and organizational advisory firm, today announced first quarter fee revenue of $375.6 million, or $379.2 million on an adjusted basis. Q1 FY’17 diluted earnings per share and adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.06 and $0.52, respectively. Adjusted diluted earnings per share excludes $37.0 million of restructuring charges, net, integration/acquisition costs, a deferred revenue adjustment related to the Hay Group acquisition (which also impacted adjusted fee revenue), and a write-off of debt issuance costs as a result of replacing our prior credit facility with a new facility to provide enhanced financial flexibility.

We generated $376 million of fee revenue and $379 million of adjusted fee revenue, up 40% and 42% year over year, respectively,” said Gary D. Burnison, CEO Korn Ferry. “Operationally, our combination with Hay Group and investments in our business have provided us with a more compelling platform to not only accelerate our clients’ success, but accelerate Korn Ferry’s growth – and generate stronger earnings power. I am confident that our strategic actions are making us more relevant to our clients, and firmly establishing Korn Ferry as a world-class people and organizational advisor.”
