Powell Industries Announces Fiscal 2016 First Quarter Results

HOUSTON, Feb. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Powell Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: POWL), a leading supplier of custom engineered solutions for the management, control and distribution of electrical energy, today announced results for the fiscal 2016 first quarter ended December 31, 2015. 

Revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 were $150.0 million compared to revenues of $152.6 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2015.  The Company reported a net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 of $0.5 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $0.2 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, reported in the first quarter of fiscal 2015.  Excluding restructuring and separation costs, net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 was $2.0 million, or $0.18 per diluted share.  A reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to net income (loss) is included in the financial tables below.

Thomas W. Powell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Oil and gas is a critical market for Powell and the products and integrated solutions we offer. While we see continued spending in the other sectors, oil and gas related capital spending will likely remain at reduced levels throughout 2016.

"During this difficult economic time, we are focused on delivering the high value our customers expect. Powell has experienced many market cycles over its 70 year history and we are committed to meeting the needs of our customers during this downturn as well."

New orders placed during the first quarter of fiscal 2016 totaled $102 million compared to $92 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 and compared to $154 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2015.  The Company's backlog as of December 31, 2015 was $391 million compared to $441 million as of September 30, 2015 and compared to $506 million at the end of last year's first quarter.

OUTLOOK

The following statements are based on the current expectations of the Company.  These statements are forward-looking, and actual results may differ materially as further elaborated in the last paragraph below. 

Based on its backlog and current business conditions, Powell Industries currently expects full year fiscal 2016 revenues to range between $520 million and $560 million and full year fiscal 2016 adjusted earnings to range between $0.65 and $1.05 per diluted share.  Fiscal 2016 earnings outlook excludes any restructuring and separation costs the Company may incur during the year.

For all periods presented, the Company defines non-GAAP net income (loss) as net loss which excludes restructuring and separation costs, net of tax.  Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. However, the Company believes by excluding these items, these non-GAAP financial measures are helpful in comparing the historical results to current results and measuring operating earnings trends. 

The adjustment is summarized below:

  • Restructuring and separation costs, net of tax – In the first quarter of Fiscal 2016, we incurred restructuring and separation costs of approximately $2.5 million associated with the departure of our Chief Executive Officer.
