MYR Group Inc. Announces First-Quarter 2020 Results

April 29, 2020

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., April 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MYR Group Inc. (“MYR”) (NASDAQ: MYRG), a holding company of leading specialty contractors serving the electric utility infrastructure, commercial and industrial construction markets in the United States and western
Canada, announced today its first-quarter 2020 financial results.

Highlights

Management Comments
Rick Swartz, MYR’s President and CEO, said, “Our first-quarter 2020 financial results included $518.5 million of revenues, a 10.8 percent increase over the first quarter of 2019, and increases in gross profit, earnings per share, net income and EBITDA. Backlog in the first quarter was $1.54 billion, a slight increase over our record backlog in fourth quarter of 2019. We had a solid start in 2020 due to our strong market position, large array of project activity and a very active bidding environment. Our first quarter financial results were minimally impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic as most of our operations are considered critical and essential businesses and social distancing orders around the country did not start until the last month of the quarter. We cannot predict the total impact to our future business until the stay-at-home orders are lifted and the economy starts to rebound in the months ahead. We are fortunate to be in an industry that constructs, maintains and supports critical electric infrastructure. As a leader in the electrical construction industry we remain focused, on keeping our people safe, providing superior service to our clients and supporting our communities during this difficult time.”

First Quarter Results
MYR reported first-quarter 2020 revenues of $518.5 million, an increase of $50.4 million, or 10.8 percent, compared to the first quarter of 2019. Specifically, our Transmission and Distribution (“T&D”) segment reported revenues of $259.3 million for the first quarter of 2020, a decrease of $13.2 million, or 4.9 percent, from the first quarter of 2019, primarily due to reduced volume on a medium-size transmission project that is nearing completion. Our Commercial and Industrial (“C&I”) segment reported revenues of $259.2 million for the first quarter of 2020, an increase of $63.7 million, or 32.6 percent, from the first quarter of 2019, primarily due to incremental revenues from the CSI Electrical Contractors, Inc (“CSI”) acquisition, partially offset by a decrease due to the timing of activity on various-sized projects along with a slowdown of work related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Consolidated gross profit increased to $61.6 million in the first quarter of 2020, an increase of $18.7 million or 43.7 percent, from the first quarter of 2019. The increase in gross profit was due to higher revenues and margins. Gross margin was 11.9 percent for the first quarter of 2020 compared to 9.2 percent for the first quarter of 2019. The increase in gross margin was primarily due to better-than-anticipated productivity on certain projects, partially offset by labor inefficiencies on certain projects, some of which we are in ongoing negotiations to receive reimbursement and inclement weather experienced on certain projects. Changes in estimates of gross profit on certain projects resulted in a gross margin increase of 0.1 percent and decrease of 0.8 percent for the first quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively.

Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) increased to $45.0 million in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $33.0 million for the first quarter of 2019. The period-over-period increase was primarily due to the acquisition of CSI along with higher employee-related expenses to support the growth in our operations.

Income tax expense was $4.1 million for the first quarter of 2020, with an effective tax rate of 29.1 percent, compared to income tax expense of $2.5 million for the first quarter of 2019, with an effective tax rate of 27.8 percent. The period-over-period increase was primarily due to excess tax expense pertaining to the vesting of stock awards related to our stock compensation program along the impact of foreign earnings and the associated impact of the global intangible low tax income (“GILTI”).

For the first quarter of 2020, net income attributable to MYR Group Inc. was $9.9 million, or $0.59 per diluted share attributable to MYR Group Inc., compared to $7.4 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, for the same period of 2019. First-quarter 2020 EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $27.4 million, compared to $20.9 million in the first quarter of 2019.

Backlog
As of March 31, 2020, MYR’s backlog was $1.54 billion, compared to $1.50 billion as of December 31, 2019. As of March 31, 2020, T&D backlog was $456.8 million, and C&I backlog was $1.08 billion. Total backlog at March 31, 2020 increased $404.3 million, or 35.6 percent, from the $1.14 billion reported at March 31, 2019.

Balance Sheet
As of March 31, 2020, MYR had $185.1 million of borrowing availability under its revolving 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 attributable to MYR Group Inc. reported in the last four quarters.
(2) Last-twelve-months weighted average basic and diluted shares attributable to MYR Group Inc. were determined by adding the weighted average shares reported for the last four quarters and dividing by four.
(3) Funded debt includes outstanding borrowings under our revolving credit facility and our outstanding equipment notes.
(4) These financial performance measures are provided as supplemental information to the financial statements. These measures are used by management to evaluate our past performance, our prospects for future performance and 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.
(5) EBIT, net of taxes is defined as net income attributable to MYR Group Inc. 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.
(6) 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. Certain material covenants contained within our credit agreement are based on EBITDA with certain additional adjustments, including our interest coverage ratio and leverage ratio, which we must comply with to avoid potential immediate repayment of amounts borrowed or additional fees to seek relief from our lenders. In addition, management considers EBITDA a useful measure because it provides MYR Group Inc. and its investors with an additional tool to compare MYR Group Inc. operating performance on a consistent basis by removing the impact of certain items that management believes to not directly reflect the company’s core operations. Management further believes that EBITDA is useful to investors and other external users of MYR Group Inc. financial statements in evaluating the company’s operating performance and cash flow because EBITDA is widely used by investors to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to items such as interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization, which can vary substantially from company to company depending upon accounting methods and book value of assets, useful lives placed on assets, capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired.
