Babcock & Wilcox Announces Second Quarter 2016 Results

- Closed acquisition of SPIG S.p.A. on July 1, 2016

- Announces Additional $100 Million Share Repurchase Authorization

Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises, Inc. (B&W) (NYSE:BW) announced today second quarter 2016 revenues of $383.2 million, a decrease of $54.3 million, or 12%, compared to the second quarter of 2015. The GAAP loss per share for the second quarter of 2016 was $(1.25) compared to earnings per share of $0.08 for the second quarter of 2015. Our adjusted loss per share, which excludes non-cash mark-to-market adjustments for pension and other post-retirement benefits as well as the impacts of restructuring activities, acquisition and integration costs, and spin-off transaction costs, was $(0.20) for the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to adjusted earnings per share of $0.27 in the prior year period.

”Although the previously announced isolated issue on a European renewable energy contract is weighing on this quarter's adjusted results, our recent acquisition, continued focus on international market development, and proactive restructuring of the U.S. power business have set us up for much improved results in 2017," said Mr. E. James Ferland, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

Results of Operations

Consolidated revenues for the second quarter of 2016 were $383.2 million, a decrease of 12%, compared to $437.5 million for the second quarter of 2015, due primarily to $26.4 million lower revenue related to a change in the estimated cost to complete a European renewable energy contract and decreases in volumes in our Global Services and Industrial Environmental segments. The GAAP operating loss for the second quarter of 2016 was $72.6 million as compared to operating income of $4.9 million in the second quarter of 2015. The decrease was driven by a $31.7 million change in the estimated cost to complete a European renewable energy contract, a $29.9 million non-cash mark-to-market adjustment for pension and other post-retirements benefits and $31.6 million of restructuring activity and spin-off transaction costs. The adjusted operating loss in the second quarter of 2016 was $9.1 million, a decrease of $30.5 million compared to adjusted operating income of $21.4 million in the second quarter of 2015, which is primarily related to a charge on a European renewable energy contract.

Second quarter 2016 revenues for the Global Power segment decreased 19% to $127.2 million in the quarter compared to $157.4 million in revenues in the prior year period. Gross profit (loss) in the Global Power segment was $(9.1) million, compared to $26.7 million in the prior year period. Both changes were primarily due to a charge on a European renewable energy contract.

Revenues in the Global Services segment were $218.0 million for the second quarter of 2016, versus $236.7 million in the corresponding period in 2015, a decrease of $18.8 million driven by lower parts revenue and a decrease in revenue from our Canadian oil sands contract, which was delayed due to wildfires in the region. The Global Services segment gross profit of $53.6 million in the second quarter of 2016 was $7.3 million higher than the $46.3 million gross profit reported in the prior year second quarter primarily due to favorable project performance and margin improvement efforts.

The Industrial Environmental segment contributed $38.0 million in revenues for the second quarter of 2016 compared to $43.4 million in the second quarter of 2015, a decrease of $5.4 million primarily due to weakness in the North American industrial market. Gross profit in the Industrial Environmental segment was $11.0 million in the second quarter of 2016, a $2.1 million increase compared to $8.9 million in the prior year period primarily due to lower amortization expense and solid project execution.

SPIG Acquisition closed on July 1

As previously announced, on May 20, 2016, B&W entered into a Sale and Purchase Agreement with the shareholders of SPIG S.p.A. (“SPIG”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to acquire all of the outstanding shares of SPIG for an aggregate purchase price of €155 million (or approximately $174 million), subject to certain working capital and other adjustments. On July 1, 2016, the Company closed the acquisition pursuant to the terms of the Sale and Purchase Agreement. SPIG, which is based in Arona, Italy, is a global provider of custom-engineered cooling systems and services. 2016 annual revenue is expected to be approximately $200 million. SPIG will be reported as a component of our Industrial segment beginning in the third quarter of 2016.

Liquidity

The Company’s cash and cash equivalents balance, net of restricted cash, decreased $35.8 million for the quarter to $251.0 million at the end of the second quarter of 2016, reflecting the repayment of our Indian joint venture's high-interest third party debt and our continuing share repurchase program. The outflows were partially offset by $22.1 million of positive cash flows from operations in the quarter. Our consolidated cash position includes $189.9 million in non-U.S. cash.

Share Repurchase Program

The Company repurchased 0.7 million shares of our common stock for $15.1 million during the second quarter of 2016 under a $100 million share repurchase program that was authorized in 2015 by the Board of Directors. As of August 9th, we have $18.8 million of remaining capacity under the original authorization, which we expect to complete by the end of the third quarter of 2016.

In addition, the Board has approved a new authorization for up to $100 million in share repurchases over the next 24 months. The Company may utilize various methods to effect the repurchases and the timing of repurchases will depend upon several factors, including market and business conditions, and repurchases may be discontinued at any time. The pace of the share repurchase program beyond the third quarter of 2016 will be determined based on the status of potential acquisitions as well as market conditions.

2016 Outlook

The Company reaffirms its revenue guidance of $1.8 billion and adjusted EPS guidance of $0.63 to $0.83. Adjusted EPS excludes mark-to-market adjustments for pension and other post-retirement benefits as well as the impact of restructuring activities, acquisition and integration costs, and spin-off transaction costs. As more fully described in Exhibit 1, Management is unable to reconcile without unreasonable effort the Company's forecasted range of adjusted EPS for the full year to a comparable GAAP range.

B&W is providing non-GAAP information regarding certain of its historical results and guidance on future earnings per share to supplement the results provided in accordance with GAAP, and it should not be considered superior to, or as a substitute for, the comparable GAAP measures. B&W believes the non-GAAP measures provide meaningful insight into the Company’s operational performance and provides these measures to investors to help facilitate comparisons of operating results with prior periods and to assist them in understanding B&W’s ongoing operations.
 

2016 Outlook

Management has provided full year adjusted earnings per diluted share ("adjusted EPS") guidance of $0.63 to $0.83. It is not possible for management to identify the amount or significance of future adjustments associated with potential mark to market adjustments to our pension and other postretirement benefit plan liabilities or other non-routine costs that we adjust in our presentation of adjusted EPS guidance. These items are dependent on future events and/or market inputs that are not reasonably estimable at this time. Accordingly, management is unable to reconcile without unreasonable effort the Company's forecasted range of adjusted EPS for the full year included in the 2016 Outlook section of this earnings release to a comparable GAAP range. However, items excluded from our adjusted EPS guidance include the historical adjustments noted in the tables above, and our adjusted EPS guidance also excludes future estimable adjusting items, including charges relating to previously announced restructuring initiatives of $0.20-$0.40 per share, additional spin costs of approximately $0.02 per share and additional acquisition and integration costs of approximately $0.01 per share.
