Williams Industrial Services Group Achieves Earnings per Share of $0.07 from Continuing Operations in Second Quarter 2019

ATLANTA

  • Execution of growth strategy and nuclear outage work drove revenue up 49.0% to $71.5 million in second quarter 2019
  • Generated income from continuing operations of $1.3 million in the quarter and $1.7 million in the first half of 2019
  • Reduced cost structure provided improved operating leverage; Operating margin was 3.5% for second quarter 2019
  • Total backlog at end of quarter was $409 million, down $69.7 million from March 31, 2019 and down $92.6 million from January 1, 2019, as Vogtle Units 3 and 4 advance toward in-service dates and major outage work was completed; new awards in the second quarter were $1.7 million
  • Expect order pace to accelerate in second half of 2019 driven by continued execution and increasing momentum with strategic growth initiatives
  • Awarded first major oil & gas midstream project during third quarter 2019, valued at $8.6 million; New awards in third quarter to date are $15.5 million, including water infrastructure, decommissioning and other nuclear project work

Williams Industrial Services Group Inc. (OTCQX: WLMS) (“Williams” or the “Company”), a construction and maintenance services company, today reported its financial results for its second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2019. Unless otherwise noted, amounts and disclosures throughout this release relate to continuing operations.

Tracy Pagliara, President and CEO of Williams, commented, “As expected, we had improved results in the quarter which were augmented by the successful execution on the nuclear outage work we perform every other year under a long-term maintenance agreement. Importantly, we are making meaningful progress on key initiatives that should drive backlog growth by year end. We recently were awarded an $8.6 million contract for civil and structural work on a new crude oil terminal. To win this, we first performed well on smaller projects and gained the confidence of our customer to be awarded larger scope work. In addition, our Canada nuclear, nuclear decommissioning and water/wastewater infrastructure growth initiatives are also gaining traction as we pursue additional orders that could lead to meaningful backlog additions.”

He added, “Since the end of the quarter, we have won over $15 million in new awards, including the midstream terminal project and decommissioning work. Our progress and momentum with opportunities in our targeted end markets further underscore the value we are creating for our customers and our shareholders.”

Second Quarter 2019 Highlights

  • Second quarter 2019 revenue increased $23.5 million, or 49.0%, from the prior-year period to $71.5 million with gross margin of 12.9%.
  • Total operating expenses were $6.7 million; SG&A expenses were reduced 17.3% compared with the prior-year period and represented 9.3% of revenue.
  • Operating income for the 2019 second quarter was $2.5 million, an improvement of $6.2 million over the operating loss in the prior-year period.
  • Income from continuing operations was $1.3 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, and net income was $2.0 million, or $0.11 per diluted share.
  • Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $4.0 million, up from essentially break even in the second quarter of 2018 and up from $2.4 million in the first quarter of 2019. See NOTE 1—Non-GAAP Financial Measures in the attached tables for important disclosures regarding Williams’ use of adjusted EBITDA, as well as a reconciliation of income (loss) from continuing operations to adjusted EBITDA.
  • Total backlog at June 30, 2019 declined to $409.0 million of which approximately 33.8%, or $138.3 million, is expected to convert to revenue in the next twelve months. Strong revenue recognition from outage work and advancement toward in-service dates for Vogtle Units 3 and 4 more than offset a light level of new awards in the quarter.

Revenue in the second quarter grew $23.5 million, or 49.0%, mostly as a result of scheduled nuclear outage work performed every other year under a long-term agreement. Also contributing to the growth in revenue were services provided for the nuclear industry in Canada, a market the Company entered into in 2018, and increased scope for a fossil power generation customer.

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2019 increased $2.4 million, although gross margin declined to 12.9% from 14.1%. The decrease in gross margin was due to lower margins related to the scheduled nuclear outage work and initial scope of work performed in the Canada nuclear industry.

Operating expenses were $6.7 million, down 35.7%. The measurable reduction in expenses was primarily a result of the completed restructuring achievements in 2018, including $3.1 million lower compensation expense. There was

$0.3 million in severance expense in the 2019 second quarter, while the prior-year period included $2.2 million in severance expense associated with the 2018 restructuring plan.

Interest expense was $1.5 million for the quarter compared with $2.4 million in the prior-year period as the net result of higher loan balances favorably impacted by lower interest rates.

Revenue for the first half of 2019 was up $31.0 million, or 34.1%, primarily due to the work related to the scheduled nuclear outage, growth from entry into the nuclear industry in Canada this year and increased project work at a fossil fuel power generation facility. This was partially offset by lower revenue from decommissioning due to delays encountered by the customer’s project.

Gross profit for the first half of 2019 was up $2.7 million, while gross margin declined to 13.0% from 14.5% due to lower margins associated with the nuclear outage and the margins for the initial scope of work in Canada.

Operating expenses were down $5.9 million due primarily to a reduction in employee-related expenses, including severance, from the restructuring that was completed at the end of 2018.

Balance Sheet

As of June 30, 2019, Williams had $3.8 million in cash, including restricted cash. During 2018, the Company refinanced its term-debt facility with a four-year, $35.0 million term loan and also secured a three-year, $15.0 million revolving credit facility.

Total backlog as of June 30, 2019 was $409.0 million, compared with $478.7 million at March 31, 2019. The reduction in backlog primarily resulted from the work completed on the nuclear outage and the completion of several projects in the quarter. Williams estimates that approximately $138.3 million, or 33.8% of total backlog, will be converted to revenue in the next twelve months. This compares with $181.1 million of backlog at the end of the first quarter that the Company anticipated would be converted to revenue over the succeeding twelve-month period. Since the end of the quarter, the Company has been awarded $15.5 million in new contracts.

Outlook

The Company has raised the lower end of its expectations for revenue in 2019 and maintained its expectations for gross margins, SG&A as a percent of sales and adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations.

 

 

 

2019 Guidance

 

 

Revenue:

 

$230 million to $240 million, 24% year-over-year growth at midpoint of range

Mr. Pagliara concluded, “We are confident in our ability to deliver on our expectations in 2019 while we also advance towards our goal to build substantial backlog for 2020 and beyond. We continue to execute on our strategy to aggressively grow our core business, expand to new customers and markets, strengthen and diversify specialty service offerings and drive best-in-class execution to create substantially more scale and profitability.

NOTE 1—Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is not calculated through the application of GAAP and is not the required form of disclosure by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Adjusted EBITDA is the sum of our net income (loss) before interest expense, net, and income tax (benefit) expense and unusual gains or charges. It also excludes non-cash charges such as depreciation and amortization. The Company’s management believes adjusted EBITDA is an important measure of operating performance because it allows management, investors and others to evaluate and compare the performance of its core operations from period to period by removing the impact of the capital structure (interest), tangible and intangible asset base (depreciation and amortization), taxes and unusual gains or charges (restatement expenses, stock-based compensation, bank restructuring costs, severance costs, asset disposition costs, restructuring charges, loss on other receivables, foreign currency gain, other nonrecurring expenses and franchise taxes), which are not always commensurate with the reporting period in which such items are included. Williams’ credit facility also contains ratios based on EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net income or as a better measure of liquidity than net cash flows from operating activities, as determined by GAAP, and, therefore, should not be used in isolation from, but in conjunction with, the GAAP measures. The use of any non-GAAP measure may produce results that vary from the GAAP measure and may not be comparable to a similarly defined non-GAAP measure used by other companies.

Note Regarding Forward-Looking Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company does not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to their comparable GAAP financial measures because it could not do so without unreasonable effort due to the unavailability of the information needed to calculate reconciling items and due to the variability, complexity and limited visibility of the adjusting items that would be excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures in future periods. When planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods, the Company does so primarily on a non-GAAP basis without preparing a GAAP analysis.
