McGrath RentCorp Announces Results for Third Quarter 2015

Rental revenues increase 1%

EPS increases 2% to $0.54 for the Quarter

LIVERMORE, Calif., Oct. 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- McGrath RentCorp (NASDAQ:MGRC) (the "Company"), a diversified business to business rental company, today announced total revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 of $113.0 million, unchanged from the third quarter of 2014. The Company reported net income of $13.6 million, or $0.54 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2015, compared to net income of $13.7 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2014.

Dennis Kakures, President and CEO of McGrath RentCorp, made the following comments regarding these results and future expectations:

"Our overall Company earnings results for the third quarter reflect the impact of higher rental equipment utilization, a larger fleet and lower equipment processing costs in our modular division, despite the continuing market challenges in both our electronics and liquid and solid containment rental businesses. Modular division quarter-end rental equipment utilization based on original acquisition cost reached 77.9%, our highest level since the first quarter of 2009. During the third quarter, we repurchased approximately 1.8 million shares of the Company's common stock, plus an additional approximately 0.5 million shares thus far during the fourth quarter. The accretive EPS impact from these buybacks will be more fully reflected in our future quarterly results.

Modular division-wide rental revenues for the quarter increased $4.7 million, or 19%, to $30.2 million from a year ago. This is the tenth consecutive year over year quarterly rental revenue increase. During the third quarter, we experienced a 6% increase in division-wide year over year first month's rental revenue bookings for modular buildings compared to exceptionally strong third quarter 2014 booking levels. Third quarter 2015 modular division average utilization was 76.7%, an increase from 73.3% a year ago. Period end utilization for the third quarter was 77.9% compared to 74.2% in 2014. Modular division EBIT, or income from operations, for the quarter increased to $12.2 million, or by 86%, from the same period a year ago. EBIT margin for the quarter increased to 23% from 14% last year. This favorable increase in EBIT profit and margin was driven primarily by higher rental revenues and rental revenue margin expansion. Gross margin on rental revenues increased to 59% for the quarter from 47% a year ago. Modular division EBIT results also benefited from higher profit on rental related services, offset by higher SG&A expenses and lower profit on equipment sales from last year's quarter.

Rental revenues for TRS-RenTelco, our electronics division, declined by $2.9 million for the quarter, or 11%, to $22.6 million from a year ago. The year over year reduction in rental revenues was driven entirely by lower communications test equipment business activity. We continued to experience a significantly slower wireless communications network upgrade environment compared to the first nine months of 2014. General-purpose test equipment rental activity, as measured by rental revenues for these products, was higher during the third quarter as it has been throughout 2015, compared to 2014 levels. EBIT for the quarter declined by $2.8 million, or 29%, from the same period in 2014. The reduction in rental revenue of $2.9 million was the primary contributor to lower year over year EBIT along with higher laboratory costs and lower gross profit on equipment sales, partially offset by lower SG&A and depreciation expenses. The higher percentage drop in year over year EBIT at 29%, compared to rental revenues at 11% is primarily due to equipment mix and depreciation expense typically making up between 70 to 75% of direct rental costs. In other words, within any given quarter, we only have a limited amount of variable cost associated with rental revenue generation that can easily and responsibly be taken out of the business. In particular, with communications test equipment having much shorter depreciable lives than for general-purpose test equipment, there is significantly higher monthly depreciation expense, but also much higher rental rates than for general-purpose test equipment. As a result, when communications test equipment is underutilized it impacts profitability more significantly than for general-purpose test equipment due to its higher carrying costs without its matching higher rental rates and revenues. Average equipment utilization was 61.0% for the third quarter, compared to 62.5% for the same period in 2014. Average rental rates for the third quarter of 2015 declined by 11% to 4.62% from 5.20% a year ago, primarily due to the on-rent equipment mix increasing for general-purpose and decreasing for communications test equipment. General-purpose test equipment has longer depreciable lives and lower rental rates than communications test equipment.

Rental revenues at Adler Tank Rentals, our liquid and solid containment tank and box division, declined by $1.3 million for the quarter, or 7%, to $17.4 million from a year ago. Adler Tank Rentals serves a wide variety of market segments including industrial plant, petrochemical, pipeline, oil & gas, waste management, environmental field service and construction. Average utilization and total original cost of rental equipment were 58.6% and $306 million, respectively for the quarter compared to 62.7% and $294 million a year ago. Third quarter average equipment on rent at original cost was $179 million compared to $184 million a year ago, and we ended the period at $175 million. Average monthly rental rates also declined to 3.25% for the quarter from 3.39% in 2014. The reduction in both utilization and rental rates from a year ago is directly related to lower crude oil prices and the significant decline in wellhead related drilling and completions activity. These dynamics have put increasing downward pressure on 21K multi-purpose tank utilization and rental rates in upstream, midstream and downstream energy sectors, as well as in other market verticals. We remain cautious in our outlook for our liquid and solid containment rental business for the foreseeable future as market forces drive a material reset of both the oil and natural gas industries. EBIT for the quarter decreased $2.2 million, or 30%, to $5.1 million from a year ago. The higher percentage decrease in EBIT at 30% as compared to rental revenues at 7% was primarily a result of higher equipment processing costs, increased SG&A expenses associated with a larger sales organization and higher depreciation expense, all from a year ago.

Mobile Modular Portable Storage made good progress during the third quarter in building its customer following, increasing booking levels, and growing both rental revenues and profitability. First month's rent booking levels and rental revenues for the third quarter grew by 37% and 29%, respectively, from the same period a year ago. EBIT for our storage container rental business was up two-fold from the third quarter of 2014. We are working hard to make each of our portable storage operating geographies increasingly successful. We are making good progress towards building a meaningfully sized storage container rental business with attractive operating metrics.

There are very compelling factors supporting our share buyback activity thus far in 2015. Over the past few years, we have been through a significant investment cycle in the Company. During this period, we launched our portable storage business, expanded our modular business to the mid-Atlantic region from Georgia to Washington D.C., entered the liquid and solid containment rental industry through the acquisition of Adler Tank Rentals and created a national footprint for the business. We have also shepherded the turnaround and continuing recovery of our modular business to improving financial health from having lost approximately $1.00 of annual EPS due to effects of the Great Recession. Historically, our modular division has been our largest earnings engine. We are well on our way to creating four large rental businesses whose combined annual earnings horsepower will be materially greater than we have experienced to date. As both a business manager and an investor in McGrath RentCorp, I can fully appreciate the challenges associated with getting four different rental businesses all performing at favorable levels consistently. Cyclical challenges with our different rental businesses will occur from time to time, just as we are experiencing today with our electronics and liquid and solid containment divisions. However, that shouldn't overshadow the significant potential future financial performance of these rental businesses over time. The Company's management and board are confident in the foundation for growth in place today supporting greater shareholder value in our future. Our buyback efforts in 2015 are a clear signal we believe the longer-term intrinsic value of McGrath RentCorp has not been reflected in our share price more recently."

All comparisons presented below are for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 to the quarter ended September 30, 2014 unless otherwise indicated.

MOBILE MODULAR

Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP measures

To supplement the Company's financial data presented on a basis consistent with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), the Company presents "Adjusted EBITDA", which is defined by the Company as net income before interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation, amortization, and share-based compensation. The Company presents Adjusted EBITDA as a financial measure as management believes it provides useful information to investors regarding the Company's liquidity and financial condition and because management, as well as the Company's lenders, use this measure in evaluating the performance of the Company. 

Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as a supplement to GAAP measures to further evaluate the Company's period-to-period operating performance, compliance with financial covenants in the Company's revolving lines of credit and senior notes and the Company's ability to meet future capital expenditure and working capital requirements. Management believes the exclusion of non-cash charges, including share-based compensation, is useful in measuring the Company's cash available for operations and performance of the Company. Because management finds Adjusted EBITDA useful, the Company believes its investors will also find Adjusted EBITDA useful in evaluating the Company's performance.  

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, cash flows, or other consolidated income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP or as a measure of the Company's profitability or liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA is not in accordance with or an alternative for GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Unlike EBITDA, which may be used by other companies or investors, Adjusted EBITDA does not include share-based compensation charges. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is of limited use in that it does not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and does not accurately reflect real cash flow. In addition, other companies may not use Adjusted EBITDA or may use other non-GAAP measures, limiting the usefulness of Adjusted EBITDA for purposes of comparison. The Company's presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that the Company will not incur expenses that are the same as or similar to the adjustments in this presentation. Therefore, Adjusted EBITDA should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. The Company compensates for the limitations of Adjusted EBITDA by relying upon GAAP results to gain a complete picture of the Company's performance. Because Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure as defined by the SEC, the Company includes in the tables below reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.
