Thermon Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2024 Results
Continuing Double-Digit Revenue, Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA, and EPS Growth
Raising FY 2024 Revenue and EPS Guidance

AUSTIN, TX / ACCESSWIRE / November 2, 2023 -- Thermon Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:THR) ("Thermon"), a global leader in industrial process heating solutions, today announced consolidated financial results for the second quarter ("Q2 2024") of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2024 ("Fiscal 2024").

Key highlights for Q2 2024 as compared to the three months ended September 30, 2022 ("Q2 2023") include:

Produced record revenue of $123.7 million, an increase of 23%, driven by sales growth in the US, Europe and Asia Pacific

Realized fully diluted GAAP earnings per share ("EPS") of $0.43 and record non-GAAP adjusted EPS of $0.49, an increase of 33% and 30% respectively due to operating margin improvement and ongoing disciplined cost control

Generated net income of $14.7 million, an increase of 34%, and Adjusted EBITDA of $27.7 million, an increase of 27%, driven by volume growth and effective cost management

Achieved gross profit of $54.5 million, an increase of 19%, and gross margin of 44.0%, as compared to 45.7%, a contraction of approximately 170 basis points due to mix

Reached bookings of $116.4 million, an increase of 22%, driven by 73% of orders in diversified end markets, and a book-to-bill ratio of 0.94x

"This was another excellent quarter for Thermon, with record revenue, gross profit and non-GAAP adjusted EPS. The results are a testament to the strong execution of our strategic initiatives and our global team’s ability to operate effectively in a dynamic environment,” said Bruce Thames, President and CEO. “Earnings per share were up approximately 30%, largely due to resilient customer demand combined with productive, incremental investments in our strategic initiatives that are driving profitable growth. Sales volume was driven by healthy demand in the United States and Latin America, along with substantial year-over-year revenue increases across diversified end markets such as Power, Renewables, and Food & Beverage. Decarbonization opportunities represented over 7% of revenues and 11% of bookings in the quarter as we continue to see growth in the pipeline. We enter the second half of our fiscal year with a solid backlog and a balanced outlook that accounts for ongoing macroeconomic volatility and the significant opportunities ahead of us in Fiscal 2024 and beyond."

Q2 2024 sales were $123.7 million as compared to $100.6 million in Q2 2023, an increase of $23.1 million, or 23%. Sales growth was a result of our customers' investments in the Chemical, Petrochemical, Power, Renewables and Food & Beverage end markets as well as investments in decarbonization and electrification projects.

Backlog was $166.9 million as of September 30, 2023, representing a $6.1 million increase, or 4%, as compared to Q2 2023 backlog of $160.8 million. Orders in Q2 2024 were $116.4 million compared to $95.2 million in Q2 2023, an increase of $21.2 million, or 22%.

Gross outstanding debt decreased by $32.9 million to $110.6 million. Available liquidity at the end of the quarter totaled $100.6 million, including $30.5 million in cash and cash equivalents and $70.1 million available under credit agreements.

We are also raising full year Fiscal 2024 GAAP EPS guidance to approximately $1.59 - $1.69 per share, with Adjusted EPS of approximately $1.84 - $1.94 per share."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Disclosure in this release of "Adjusted EPS," "Adjusted EBITDA," "Adjusted EBITDA margin," "Adjusted Net Income/(loss)," "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/(loss)" and "Adjusted EPS" (or "Adjusted fully diluted EPS") represent net income/(loss) 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." We are unable to reconcile projected fiscal 2024 Adjusted EPS to the most directly comparable projected GAAP financial measure because certain information necessary to calculate such measures on a GAAP basis is unavailable or dependent on the timing of future events outside of our control. Therefore, because of the uncertainty and variability of the nature of and the amount of any potential applicable future adjustments, which could be significant, we are unable to provide a reconciliation for projected fiscal 2024 Adjusted EPS without unreasonable effort.

We do not intend to update these statements unless we are required to do so under applicable securities laws.
