August 3, 2016

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., Aug. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MYR Group Inc. (“MYR”) (NASDAQ:MYRG), a leading specialty contractor serving the electrical infrastructure market in the United States and Canada, today announced its second-quarter and first-half 2016 financial results.

Highlights

  • Second quarter revenues of $261.9 million
  • Second quarter net income of $5.5 million, or $0.31 per share
  • Backlog increase of $40.2 million, or 9.3 percent from the prior quarter to $475.0 million, our highest level since December 31, 2012
  • Second quarter common stock repurchases of approximately 2.8 million shares for $67.6 million
  • On July 28, 2016, MYR’s Board of Directors approved an additional $20.0 million to the share repurchase program

Management Comments
Bill Koertner, MYR’s President and CEO, said, “The second quarter of 2016 showed improvement over the first quarter of 2016. Although our revenues were down compared to second quarter of 2015, our backlog increased and margins improved due mainly to improved project execution. Our organic growth markets contributed to our results for the quarter, and we made steady progress on integrating the two acquisitions we made last year. Additionally at the end of the quarter, we entered into an amended and restated, five-year credit agreement which expands our borrowing capacity to $250 million. This new credit agreement provides added resources and flexibility to execute our three-pronged strategy of prudent organic growth, strategic acquisitions and capital returns to shareholders. This should allow us to continue to grow our T&D and C&I business and contribute to enhanced shareholder value.” Mr. Koertner concluded, “I am also pleased to announce that our Board of Directors approved an extension of the share repurchase program to August 15, 2017 and authorized an additional $20 million to the program for repurchase of our common stock bringing the total amount authorized to $162.5 million.”

Second-Quarter Results
MYR reported second-quarter 2016 revenues of $261.9 million, a decrease of $14.6 million, or 5.3 percent, compared to second-quarter 2015. Specifically, the T&D segment reported revenues of $178.6 million, a decrease of $22.0 million, or 11.0 percent, from the second quarter of 2015, primarily due to a decline in revenue from large, multi-year transmission projects which were partially offset by organic and acquisitive growth. The C&I segment reported second-quarter 2016 revenues of $83.3 million, an increase of $7.4 million, or 9.7 percent, from second-quarter 2015, due primarily to organic and acquisitive expansion into new markets.

Consolidated gross profit decreased to $31.4 million in the second-quarter of 2016, compared to $31.7 million in the second quarter of 2015. The decrease in gross profit was primarily due to lower revenues, partially offset by higher margins. Gross margin increased to 12.0 percent for the second quarter of 2016 from 11.5 percent for the second quarter of 2015. The year-over-year increase in gross margin was primarily due to improved performance on several projects, which was partially offset by some significant write-downs due to a pending project claim, pending change orders and inclement weather experienced on certain projects. Changes in estimates of gross profit on certain projects resulted in a gross margin increases of 0.1 percent and 1.0 percent for the second quarter of 2016 and 2015, respectively.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $22.5 million in the second quarter of 2016 compared to $18.9 million in the second quarter of 2015 primarily due to $2.3 million of costs associated with our expansion into new geographic markets and higher payroll costs to support operations. As a percentage of revenues, selling, general and administrative expenses increased to 8.6 percent for the second quarter of 2016 from 6.9 percent for the same quarter of 2015.

For the second quarter of 2016, net income was $5.5 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, compared to $8.1 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, for the same period of 2015. Second-quarter 2016 EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $18.9 million, or 7.2 percent of revenues, compared to $22.3 million, or 8.1 percent of revenues, in the second quarter of 2015.

First-Half Results
MYR reported first-half 2016 revenues of $515.6 million, a decrease of $5.0 million, or 1.0 percent, compared to first-half 2015. Specifically, the T&D segment reported revenues of $361.6 million, a decrease of $28.2 million, or 7.2 percent, from the first half of 2015, primarily due to a decline in revenue from large, multi-year transmission projects. The C&I segment reported first-half 2016 revenues of $154.0 million, an increase of $23.2 million, or 17.7 percent, from first-half 2015, due primarily to organic and acquisitive expansion into new markets.

Consolidated gross profit decreased to $58.7 million in the first-half of 2016, compared to $61.1 million in the first half of 2015. The decrease in gross profit was primarily due to lower revenue and gross margin. Gross margin decreased to 11.4 percent for the first half of 2016 from 11.7 percent for the first half of 2015. The decline in our gross margin was largely due to lower bid margins caused by increased competition in many of our markets and an increase in shorter duration jobs, which affects labor productivity, fleet utilization, mobilization costs and demobilization costs. In addition, during the six months ended June 30, 2016, we experienced some significant write-downs due to a pending project claim and change orders, inclement weather and lower productivity experienced on certain projects. These declines were partially offset by favorable close outs and improved performance on several projects. Changes in estimates of gross profit on certain projects resulted in a gross margin decrease of 0.7 percent and an increase of 1.1 percent for the first half of 2016 and 2015, respectively.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $46.4 million in the first half of 2016 compared to $37.5 million in the first half of 2015. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses in the first half of 2016 was primarily due to $5.3 million of costs associated with our expansion into new geographic markets, $1.0 million associated with activist investor activities, higher payroll costs to support operations and higher medical claims costs, partially offset by lower profit sharing and stock compensation costs. As a percentage of revenues, selling, general and administrative expenses increased to 9.0 percent for the first half of 2016 from 7.2 percent for the first half of 2015.

For the first half of 2016, net income was $7.5 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, compared to $15.2 million, or $0.72 per diluted share, for the same period of 2015. First-half 2016 EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $32.2 million, or 6.2 percent of revenues, compared to $42.9 million, or 8.2 percent of revenues, in the first half of 2015.

Share Repurchase Program
In the second quarter MYR purchased 2.8 million shares of its common stock for $67.6 million, resulting in repurchases of almost 4.0 million shares, for $94.3 million, during the first six months of 2016, under the share repurchase program (“Repurchase Program”). On July 12, 2016, MYR exhausted the remaining availability under the Repurchase Program. Since the inception of our share Repurchase Program, MYR purchased a total of 6,024,978 shares of our common stock for $142.5 million at an average share price of $23.64 per share. On July 28, 2016 the Board of Directors approved an extension of the Repurchase Program to August 15, 2017 and authorized an additional $20.0 million bringing the total amount authorized under the program to $162.5 million. These additional funds are to be used to repurchase shares of MYR’s common stock albeit at a less aggressive pace than pursued during the first half of 2016.

Backlog
As of June 30, 2016, MYR’s backlog was $475.0 million, consisting of $304.6 million in the T&D segment and $170.4 million in the C&I segment. Total backlog of $475.0 million was $40.2 million higher than the $434.8 million reported as of March 31, 2016. Our backlog total has increased in eight of the past ten quarters and was at its highest level since December 31, 2012. T&D backlog increased $11.0 million, or 3.8 percent, from March 31, 2016, while C&I backlog increased $29.2 million, or 20.7 percent, over the same period. Total backlog at June 30, 2016 increased $64.3 million, or 15.7 percent, from the $410.7 million reported at June 30, 2015.

Balance Sheet
As of June 30, 2016, MYR had cash and cash equivalents of $3.4 million and $205.7 million of borrowing availability under its credit facility.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement MYR’s financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP), MYR uses certain non-GAAP measures. Reconciliation to the nearest GAAP measures of all non-GAAP measures included in this press release can be found at the end of this release. MYR’s definitions of these non-GAAP measures may differ from similarly titled measures used by others. These non-GAAP measures should be considered supplemental to, and not a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

MYR believes that these non-GAAP measures are useful because they (i) provide both management and investors meaningful supplemental information regarding financial performance by excluding certain expenses and benefits that may not be indicative of recurring core business operating results, (ii) permit investors to view MYR’s performance using the same tools that management uses to evaluate MYR’s past performance, reportable business segments and prospects for future performance, (iii) publicly disclose results that are relevant to financial covenants included in MYR’s credit facility and (iv) otherwise provide supplemental information that may be useful to investors in evaluating MYR.

See notes at the end of this earnings release.
(1) Last-twelve-months earnings per share is the sum of earnings per share reported in the last four quarters.
(2) Last-twelve-months average basic and diluted shares were determined by adding the average shares reported for the last four quarters and dividing by four.
(3) These financial performance measures are provided as supplemental information to the financial statements. These measures are used by management to evaluate our past performance and prospects for future performance, to evaluating our ability to comply with certain material covenants as defined within our credit agreement and to compare our results with those of our peers. In addition, we believe that certain of the measures, such as book value, tangible book value, free cash flow, asset turnover, return on equity and debt leverage are measures that are monitored by sureties, lenders, lessors, suppliers and certain investors. Our calculation of each measure is described in the following notes; our calculation may not be the same as the calculations made by other companies.
(4) EBIT, net of taxes is defined as net income plus net interest, less the tax impact of net interest. The tax impact of net interest is computed by multiplying net interest by the effective tax rate. Management uses EBIT, net of taxes, to measure our results exclusive of the impact of financing costs.
(5)  EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is not recognized under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to net income as a measure of operating performance or to net cash flows provided by operating activities as a measure of liquidity. EBITDA is a component of the debt to EBITDA covenant, as defined in our credit agreement, which we must report to our bank on a quarterly basis. In addition, management considers EBITDA a useful measure because it eliminates differences which are caused by different capital structures as well as different tax rates and depreciation schedules when comparing our measures to our peers’ measures.
(6) EBITDA per share is calculated by dividing EBITDA by the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding for the period. EBITDA per diluted share is not recognized under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to income per diluted share.
(7)  Free cash flow, which is defined as cash flow provided by operating activities minus cash flow used in purchasing  property and equipment, is not recognized under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to net income, cash  flow from operations or the change in cash on the balance sheet. Management views free cash flow as a measure of  operational performance, liquidity and financial health.
(8) Book value per period end share is calculated by dividing total stockholders’ equity at the end of the period by the period end shares outstanding.
(9) Tangible book value is calculated by subtracting goodwill and intangible assets outstanding at the end of the period from stockholders’ equity outstanding at the end of the period. Tangible book value is not recognized under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to book value or stockholders’ equity.
(10) Tangible book value per period end share is calculated by dividing tangible book value at the end of the period by the period end number of shares outstanding. Tangible book value per period end share is not recognized under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to income per diluted share.
(11) The debt to equity ratio is calculated by dividing total debt at the end of the period by total stockholders’ equity at the end of the period.
(12) Asset turnover is calculated by dividing the current period revenue by total assets at the beginning of the period.
(13) Return on assets is calculated by dividing net income for the period by total assets at the beginning of the period.
(14) Return on equity is calculated by dividing net income for the period by total stockholders’ equity at the beginning of the period.
(15) Period end shares is calculated by adding average common stock equivalents for the quarter to period end balance of common stock outstanding. Period end shares is not recognized under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to diluted shares. Management views period end shares as a better measure of shares outstanding as of the end of the period.
(16) Invested capital is calculated by adding net debt (total debt less cash and marketable securities) to total stockholders’ equity.
(17) Return on invested capital is calculated by dividing EBIT, net of taxes, less any dividends, by invested capital at the beginning of the period. Return on invested capital is not recognized under GAAP, and is a key metric used by management to determine our executive compensation.
