Continuing Double-Digit Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, and EPS Growth
Raising FY 2024 Revenue and EPS Guidance

AUSTIN, TX / ACCESSWIRE / August 3, 2023 -- Thermon Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:THR) ("Thermon"), a global leader in industrial process heating solutions, today announced consolidated financial results for the first quarter ("Q1 2024") of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2024 ("Fiscal 2024").

Key highlights for Q1 2024 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2022 ("Q1 2023") include:

Produced record revenue of $106.9 million, an increase of 12%, driven by sales growth in North America and Asia Pacific

Realized fully diluted GAAP earnings per share ("EPS") of $0.32 and non-GAAP adjusted EPS of $0.40, an increase of 65% and 60% respectively due to margin improvement and effective cost control

Generated net income of $10.9 million, an increase of 67%, and Adjusted EBITDA of $22.1 million, an increase of 33%, driven by volume growth and prudent cost management

Achieved gross profit of $47.3 million, an increase of 27%, and gross margin of 44.3%, as compared to 39.0%, an expansion of 530 basis points

Reached bookings of $120.1 million, with a book-to-bill ratio of 1.12x

"The Thermon team once again executed well and delivered an excellent start to Fiscal 2024, with record revenue, Adjusted EBITDA and earnings per share in the first quarter," said Bruce Thames, President and CEO. "We achieved Adjusted EBITDA Margin expansion of over 330 basis points, largely due to favorable volume, productivity and price. Demand in the Western Hemisphere remained healthy and was the primary driver of revenue growth. Asia Pacific continues to show signs of recovery with a year-over-year revenue increase of 10%. Most promising, as we look ahead, is our record level of incoming orders at $120.1 million and positive book-to-bill ratio of 1.12x, which shows that our end markets remain resilient, and our strategy of decarbonization, digitization and diversification is working."

Q1 2024 organic sales (excluding revenue contributed by the acquisition of Powerblanket) were $104.5 million as compared to $94.4 million in Q1 2023, an increase of $10.1 million, or 11%. Sales growth in the Western Hemisphere was a result of our customers' investments in the upstream and downstream oil, renewables, rail and transit and food and beverage markets. Sales attributable to the Powerblanket acquisition were $2.4 million, with integration largely completed.

Backlog was $178.1 million as of June 30, 2023, representing a $13.1 million increase, or 8%, as compared to Q1 2023 backlog of $165.0 million. Orders in Q1 2024 were $120.1 million compared to $103.3 million in Q1 2023, an increase of $16.8 million, or 16%.

Balance Sheet, Liquidity and Cash Flow

Thermon maintained a strong balance sheet during Q1 2024. The net debt-to-Adjusted EBITDA ratio decreased to 0.8x from 1.7x in the prior year period. Gross outstanding debt decreased by $37.3 million to $113.5 million. Available liquidity at the end of the quarter totaled $108.8 million, including $33.2 million in cash and cash equivalents and $75.6 million available under credit agreements.

Working capital increased by 2.5% to $156.2 million during Q1 2024. Capital expenditures during the quarter were $2.8 million, up from $1.6 million in the prior year period. Cash from operating activities was $0.9 million and Free Cash Flow was $(1.9) million.

The Company’s withdrawal from its operations in the Russian Federation through a disposition of its Russian subsidiary (the “Russia Exit”) is on track to be completed by the second fiscal quarter of Fiscal 2024. During the three months ended June 30, 2023, the Russia Exit resulted in a total charge of approximately $0.7 million or an impact of $0.02 to EPS.

Revised Outlook

Kevin Fox, Thermon's Chief Financial Officer, added, "The strong execution of our team in the first quarter of the year provided a solid foundation to deliver on our plan, we are narrowing the range of our guidance to revenue of approximately $462 - $488 million, which includes a full twelve months of revenue contribution from the Powerblanket acquisition, and we are raising GAAP EPS in Fiscal 2024 to be approximately $1.48 - $1.62 per share, with Adjusted EPS to be approximately $1.69 - $1.83 per share."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Disclosure in this release of "Adjusted EPS," "Adjusted EBITDA," "Adjusted EBITDA margin," "Adjusted Net Income," "Free Cash Flow," "Organic Sales" and "Net Debt," 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 EPS" (or "Adjusted fully diluted EPS") represent net income before the impact of restructuring and other charges/(income), costs associated with impairments and other charges, acquisition costs, amortization of intangible assets, tax expense for impact of foreign rate increases, and any tax effect of such adjustments. "Adjusted EBITDA" represents net income before interest expense (net of interest income), income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense, stock-based compensation expense, acquisition costs, costs associated with restructuring and other income/(charges), and costs associated with impairments and other charges. "Adjusted EBITDA margin" represents Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenue. "Free Cash Flow" represents cash provided by operating activities less cash used for the purchase of property, plant, and equipment, net of sales of rental equipment and proceeds from sales of land and buildings. "Organic Sales" represents revenue excluding the impact of the Company's May 31, 2022 acquisition of Powerblanket. "Net Debt" represents total outstanding principal debt less cash and cash equivalents on hand.

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 EBITDA margin or Adjusted Net Income. Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Net Income, Organic Sales and Free Cash Flow should be considered in addition to, and not as substitutes for, revenue, 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 liquidity. Our calculation of Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Net Income and Free Cash Flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. For a description of how Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Net Income and Free Cash Flow are calculated and reconciliations to the corresponding GAAP measures, see the sections of this release titled "Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted EBITDA," "Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS" and "Reconciliation of Cash Provided by Operating Activities to Free Cash Flow."
