Gulf Island Reports Second Quarter 2019 Results

HOUSTON, Aug. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gulf Island Fabrication, Inc. ("Gulf Island" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: GIFI) today reported a net loss of $5.2 million ($0.34 per share) on revenue of $80.5 million for the second quarter 2019, compared to a net loss of $3.0 million ($0.20 per share) on revenue of $67.6 million for the first quarter 2019 and net income of $0.5 million ($0.04 per share) on revenue of $54.0 million for the second quarter 2018. At June 30, 2019, the Company's cash and short-term investments totaled $76.0 million and backlog totaled $476.4 million.

"Results for the second quarter 2019 reflect revenue growth on a sequential and year over year basis, continued improvement in the utilization of our facilities, and positive operating cash flow," said Kirk Meche, Gulf Island’s President and Chief Executive Officer. "We also significantly added to our backlog with the execution of contract options by Oregon State University and the U.S. Navy, providing our highest quarter-end backlog since 2012. In spite of these accomplishments, we unfortunately experienced charges on two of our Shipyard projects, which negatively impacted our quarterly results. Although I'm disappointed in these project impacts, we completed the third and fourth harbor tug vessels in the quarter, continued to make progress on our remaining Shipyard projects, and commenced construction activities on the ferries being constructed by our Fabrication Division."


The Company’s backlog at June 30, 2019 of $476.4 million represents an increase of $141.7 million from March 31, 2019, and an increase of $120.0 million from December 31, 2018. Backlog by operating segment was $410.1 million for the Shipyard Division, $53.5 million for the Fabrication Division, and $12.8 million for the Services Division. Backlog for the Shipyard Division excludes customer options on contracts of approximately $333.0 million, which include deliveries through 2025 should all options be exercised. See "Non-GAAP Measures" below for the Company's definition of Backlog.

Cash and Liquidity

The Company's cash and short-term investments at June 30, 2019 of $76.0 million represents an increase of $5.7 million from March 31, 2019, and a decrease of $3.2 million from December 31, 2018. The Company ended the quarter with no debt and total working capital of $99.1 million, which includes $18.7 million of assets held for sale. On May 1, 2019, the Company amended its $40.0 million credit facility ("Credit Agreement") to extend its maturity to June 2021.

Non-GAAP Measures

This Release includes certain non-GAAP measures, including earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") and Backlog. The Company believes EBITDA is a useful supplemental measure as it reflects the Company's operating results excluding the non-cash impacts of depreciation and amortization. Reconciliations of EBITDA to the most comparable GAAP measure are presented under "EBITDA" above and "Results of Operations by Segment" below. The Company believes Backlog is a useful supplemental measure as it represents work that the Company is contractually obligated to perform under its current contracts. Backlog represents the unearned value of new project awards and may differ from the value of remaining performance obligations for contracts as determined under GAAP. Backlog at June 30, 2019 of $476.4 million includes the Company's performance obligations of $454.5 million, plus $21.9 million of backlog subject to a contract termination dispute with a customer to build two multi-purpose service vessels that does not meet the criteria to be reported as remaining performance obligations under GAAP.

Non-GAAP measures are not intended to be replacements or alternatives to the GAAP measures, and investors are urged to consider these non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not in substitution for, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company may present or calculate non-GAAP measures differently from other companies.
