Thermon Reports First Quarter Results

Thermon Announces Fiscal 2016 First Quarter Revenue of $65.2 Million and EPS of $0.14

SAN MARCOS, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 08/05/15 -- Thermon Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: THR) ("Thermon" or the "Company") today announced consolidated financial results for the first quarter of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2016 ("Q1 2016").

Highlights for the quarter include:

  • Revenue of $65.2 million, a decrease of 4% compared to Q1 2015
  • Organic revenue, excluding the effects of foreign currency and recent acquisitions, totaled $66.5 million versus $67.7 million in Q1 2015
  • Gross margin percentage of 47.1% compared to 50.0% in Q1 2015 due to higher Greenfield mix
  • Fully diluted GAAP EPS of $0.14 and Adjusted EPS of $0.18

"Thermon experienced mixed results in Q1 2016. Our U.S. and European regions both experienced double digit growth. In addition, our newly acquired Unitemp and Sumac businesses are both performing as expected. Headwinds in the quarter materialized in Canada due to reduced overall spending in the Oil Sands region and the negative foreign currency translation effect associated with the strong U.S. dollar," said Rodney Bingham, President and Chief Executive Officer.

In Q1 2016, the Company generated revenue of $65.2 million, a 4% decrease versus $67.7 million in Q1 2015. Q1 2016 includes $4.6 million of revenue generated by our two recently acquired businesses. Excluding a $5.9 million negative impact from foreign currency fluctuations, Q1 2016 revenue would have been $71.1 million, or 5% growth over Q1 2015. During Q1 2016, Greenfield and MRO/UE revenue were 38% and 62%, respectively. This compares to Q1 2015 when Greenfield and MRO/UE were 32% and 68% of revenue, respectively.

Gross margin during Q1 2016 decreased to 47.1% as compared to 50.0% in Q1 2015. Q1 2016 margins were impacted by a relative increase in Greenfield revenues as a percentage of total revenues, which generally provide lower gross margins than MRO/UE.

Orders placed during Q1 2016 were $63.9 million as compared to $80.6 million in Q1 2015, a decrease of 21%. Sequentially, our orders increased $11.7 million or 22% over Q4 2015. Our backlog was $76.4 million as of June 30, 2015 compared to $75.7 million on March 31, 2015.

Net income attributable to Thermon and GAAP earnings per share was $4.4 million and $0.14 per fully diluted common share in Q1 2016 versus $11.5 million and $0.36 per fully diluted common share in Q1 2015, respectively. After taking into account certain accounting charges related to our acquisitions and the adjustment of a deferred tax liability for a tax rate increase in Canada, the Company generated Adjusted net income of $5.9 million and Adjusted EPS of $0.18 per fully diluted common share in Q1 2016. Q1 2015 Adjusted net income was $8.3 million and Adjusted EPS of $0.26 per fully diluted common share after adjusting for the release of a deferred tax liability for undistributed foreign earnings.

Outlook

Our current fiscal 2016 revenue expectation is for mid-single digit revenue growth, inclusive of the recently completed acquisition of Industrial Process Insulators, Inc.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Disclosure in this release of "Adjusted EPS," "Adjusted EBITDA," "Adjusted net income," "Free cash flow " and "Return on equity," which are "non-GAAP financial measures" as defined under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), are intended as supplemental measures of our financial performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). "Adjusted net income" and "Adjusted fully diluted earnings per share (or EPS)" represents net income attributable to Thermon before acquisition related contingent consideration accounted for as compensation, adjustments to our deferred tax liability for a tax rate change and adjustments for the release of a deferred tax liability associated with undistributed foreign earnings that are permanently reinvested, per fully-diluted common share in the case of Adjusted EPS. "Adjusted EBITDA" represents net income attributable to Thermon before interest expense (net of interest income), income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense and other non-cash charges such as stock-based compensation expense and acquisition related contingent consideration accounted for as compensation. "Return on equity for the three month periods ended June 30, 2015 and 2014" represents Adjusted EBITDA for each respective period that is multiplied by four to represent a full year's results, divided by the average of total equity at June 30 and March 31 for each respective period. We believe that the average shareholders' equity properly accounts for net income that occurred during the three months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014. "Free cash flow" represents cash provided by operating activities less cash used for the purchase of property, plant and equipment. Foreign currency impact on revenue is calculated by comparing actual current period revenue in U.S Dollars to the theoretical U.S. Dollar revenue we would have achieved based on the weighted-average foreign exchange rates in effect in the comparative prior periods for all applicable foreign currencies.

We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are meaningful to our investors to enhance their understanding of our financial performance and are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties to compare our performance with the performance of other companies that report Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income or Return on equity. Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income and Return on equity should be considered in addition to, not as substitutes for, income from operations, net income, net income per share and other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP. We provide Free cash flow as a measure of our liquidity. Our calculation of Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income, Free cash flow and Return on equity may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. For a description of how Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income, Return on equity and Free cash flow are calculated and reconciliations to the corresponding GAAP measures, see the sections of this release titled "Reconciliation of Net Income attributable to Thermon to Adjusted EBITDA and Return on Equity," "Reconciliation of Net Income attributable to Thermon to Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS" and "Reconciliation of Cash Provided by Operating Activities to Free Cash Flow."

Some of these expectations may be based upon assumptions, data or judgments that prove to be incorrect. In addition, our business and operations involve numerous risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control, which could result in our expectations not being realized or otherwise materially affect our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.

Actual events, results and outcomes may differ materially from our expectations due to a variety of factors.

Any one of these factors or a combination of these factors could materially affect our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows and could influence whether any forward-looking statements contained in this release ultimately prove to be accurate.
