DXP Enterprises Announces 2016 First Quarter Results

DXP Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ:DXPE) today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016. The following are results for the three months ended March 31, 2016 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2015, where appropriate. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures is in the back of this press release.

DXP Enterprises 2016 First Quarter Financial Highlights:

  • Sales were $253.6 million for the first quarter of 2016, compared to $278.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2015 and $341.6 million for the first quarter of 2015, a decrease of 9.0 percent from the fourth quarter and a decrease of 25.8 percent compared to the first quarter of 2015.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $6.8 million for the current quarter versus $14.7 million in the fourth quarter and $27.4 million for the first quarter of 2015. Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of sales was 2.7 percent versus 5.3 percent for the fourth quarter of 2015 and 8.0 percent in the first quarter of 2015.
  • Loss per diluted share for the first quarter was $0.35, based on 14.5 million diluted shares, compared to a loss of $0.20 per share in the fourth quarter of 2015, also based on 14.5 million diluted shares.

David R. Little, Chairman and CEO remarked, “Completing the first quarter, I am pleased with the collective effort to win new business and aggressively cut costs in an effort to try and keep pace with continued sales declines. Total DXP revenue of $253.6 million for the first quarter was down 9.0 percent sequentially. We appreciate the continued hard work, perseverance and sacrifices from our DXPeople as we work through the prolonged oil and gas downturn and industrial softness. DXP’s industrial end markets, which is 60 percent of our business today, appears to have bottomed and shows signs of positive upward movement. Oil and gas, which today is 40 percent of DXP, is attempting to find a bottom as declines are decreasing. During the first quarter sales were $167.5 million for Service Centers, $47.4 million for Innovative Pumping Solutions and $38.6 million for Supply Chain Services. The continued sequential declines reflect the ongoing challenges in oil and gas and the mining markets and the associated cut in spending and activity by these customers. These declines were mitigated by stability in the food & beverage and chemical markets.

In such a prolonged and difficult environment, we are taking substantial steps to reorganize DXP without hurting sales efforts and our ability to capitalize on the eventual turnaround of the oil and gas market. Should conditions improve, the combination of strong early feedback on DXP’s pump offering, a gradual return of project work and continued improvements to our cost structure will result in strong earnings growth. We will maintain strong focus on those areas that we control, continue to right size and align our businesses and optimize cost structures. We remain steadfast in our ability to manage through the current cycle, maintaining our customer focus while creating long-term stakeholder value.”

Mac McConnell, CFO added, "Our first quarter results reflect the continued sales decline we experienced during the first half of the first quarter. During the second half of the first quarter we took steps to cut costs with an effort to optimize costs and sustain earnings going forward. Our first quarter adjusted EBITDA for bank purposes was $6.8 million. Also, in May, we were able to negotiate an amendment to DXP’s credit facility providing a waiver of key financial covenant ratios as of March 31, 2016."

We will host a conference call regarding 2016 first quarter financial results on the Company’s website ( Friday, May 13, 2016 at 10am CST.
