Thermon Reports Second Quarter Results

Thermon Announces Fiscal 2016 Second Quarter Revenue of $69.9 Million and EPS of $0.21

SAN MARCOS, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 11/04/15 -- Thermon Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: THR) ("Thermon" or the "Company") today announced consolidated financial results for the second quarter of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2016 ("Q2 2016").

Financial summary for the quarter:

  • Revenue of $69.9 million, a decrease of 12% compared to Q2 2015
  • Foreign currency translation negatively impacted Q2 2016 by $6.4 million
  • Revenue from recent acquisitions totaled $7.8 million in Q2 2016
  • Gross margin percentage of 47.7% compared to 52.2% in Q2 2015
  • Fully diluted GAAP EPS of $0.21 and Adjusted EPS of $0.26

"This quarter we completed our third acquisition since February. We experienced double digit revenue growth in our U.S. business due to an increase in petrochemical and power generation activity. However, on a global basis, we experienced declines in both revenue and net income mostly due to weakness in our Canadian market where activity in the oil sands region has slowed significantly. In addition, negative foreign currency translation effects have greatly reduced our comparative revenue results. We are actively managing the downturn in Canada where we have restructured the organization and are working to rapidly integrate our new acquisitions to create wider opportunities for near term and long term growth," said Rodney Bingham, President and Chief Executive Officer.

In Q2 2016, the Company generated revenue of $69.9 million, a 12% decrease versus $79.0 million in Q2 2015. Q2 2016 includes $7.8 million of revenue generated by our three recently acquired businesses. Excluding our Canadian operations and adjusting for the impact of foreign currency translation effects, our organic revenue would have been $55.9 million in Q2 2016 as compared to $50.9 million in Q2 2015, an increase of 10%. The decrease in activity in the Canadian oil sands region resulted in a $15.4 million reduction of revenue, excluding foreign currency translation effects. During Q2 2016, Greenfield and MRO/UE revenue were 34% and 66% of revenue, respectively. This compares to Q2 2015 when Greenfield and MRO/UE were 38% and 62% of revenue, respectively.

Gross margin during Q2 2016 decreased to 47.7% as compared to 52.2% in Q2 2015. Q2 2016 margins were within our expected historical range of 45% to 50% and down from Q2 2015 due to a lower margin product mix.

Orders placed during Q2 2016 were $75.8 million as compared to $87.0 million in Q2 2015, a decrease of 13%. Sequentially, our orders increased $11.9 million or 19% over Q1 2016. Our backlog was $82.3 million as of September 30, 2015 compared to $76.4 million as of June 30, 2015, an increase of 8%.

Net income attributable to Thermon and GAAP earnings per share were $6.9 million and $0.21 per fully diluted common share in Q2 2016 versus $11.7 million and $0.36 per fully diluted common share in Q2 2015, respectively. After making adjustment for certain accounting charges related to our acquisitions, restructuring costs related to our Canadian operations and expenses related to refinancing our long-term debt, the Company generated Adjusted net income of $8.5 million and Adjusted EPS of $0.26 per fully diluted common share in Q2 2016.

During the first six months of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2016 ("YTD 2016"), the Company generated revenue of $135.2 million versus $146.7 million, a decrease of $11.5 million or 8% compared to YTD 2015. On a comparative basis, foreign currency translation effects negatively impacted YTD 2016 revenue by $12.4 million or 9%. For YTD 2016, revenue generated from recent acquisitions totaled $12.4 million.

YTD 2016 orders were $141.7 million versus $167.6 million in the comparable prior year period, a decrease of $25.9 million or 15%. Backlog grew from $75.7 million on March 31, 2015 to $82.3 million at the end of Q2 2016, an increase of $6.6 million or 9%.

YTD 2016 net income attributable to Thermon and GAAP earnings per share was $11.3 million or $0.35 per fully diluted common share compared to $23.3 million or $0.72 per fully diluted common share in YTD 2015. After taking into account certain accounting charges related to our acquisitions, restructuring costs related to our Canadian operations, the adjustment of a deferred tax liability for a tax rate increase in Canada and expenses related to refinancing our long-term debt, the Company generated Adjusted net income in YTD 2016 of $14.4 million and Adjusted EPS $0.44 per fully diluted common share. In YTD 2015, after excluding the release of a deferred tax liability for undistributed foreign earnings due to a change in our tax position, the Company generated Adjusted net income of $20.1 million and Adjusted EPS $0.62 per fully diluted common share.

Outlook

The foreign currency headwinds that we are currently facing combined with the decline in upstream oil and gas activity in Canada have negatively impacted our business more than initially anticipated. We are therefore revising our fiscal 2016 guidance to reflect a top line revenue percentage decline of mid- to high-single digits as compared to fiscal 2015. Our revised fiscal 2016 revenue guidance includes the revenue contributions from recent acquisitions.

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, restructuring costs in Canada, accelerated amortization on debt refinancing, adjustments for the release of a deferred tax liability associated with undistributed foreign earnings that are permanently reinvested, and the tax effect of any non-tax adjustments, 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, acquisition related contingent consideration accounted for as compensation, minority interest and restructuring costs in Canada. "Return on equity for the three month periods ended September 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 September 30 and June 30 for each respective period. Return on equity for the six month periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 represents Adjusted EBITDA for each respective period that is multiplied by two to represent a full year's results, divided by average total equity at September 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 and six months ended September 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."
