MYR Group Inc. Announces Third-Quarter and First Nine-Months 2017 Results
Rolling Meadows, Ill., November 1, 2017 – MYR Group Inc. (“MYR”) (NASDAQ: MYRG), a holding company of leading specialty contractors serving the electrical infrastructure market in the United States and Canada, today announced its third-quarter and first nine-months 2017 financial results.
|•||Third quarter revenues of $373.5 million, a record high quarterly revenue|
|•||Third quarter C&I revenues of $157.5 million, more than double third-quarter 2016|
|•||Third quarter net income of $5.1 million, or $0.31 per diluted share|
|•||Backlog remains strong at $701.7 million|
Rick Swartz, MYR’s President and CEO, said “We had another strong, record high revenue quarter highlighted by our C&I segment, which more than doubled third quarter 2016 revenue. We actively bid and were awarded numerous projects of all sizes, which resulted in our 11 percent backlog increase, and are encouraged by the projected strong market outlook in both our T&D and C&I segments. Our third quarter results reflected improved performance in many of our organic growth initiatives as well as the substantial completion of the two Midwest projects that negatively impacted our first half results. Continued improvements in our core services are producing what we believe to be sustainable returns for MYR Group and our shareholders.”
Third Quarter Results
MYR reported third quarter 2017 revenues of $373.5 million, an increase of $90.2 million, or 31.9 percent, compared to the third quarter of 2016. Specifically, the T&D segment reported revenues of $216.0 million, an increase of $9.6 million, or 4.6 percent, from the third quarter of 2016, primarily due to an increase in distribution projects. The C&I segment reported record third-quarter 2017 revenues of $157.5 million, an increase of $80.7 million, or 105.1 percent, from the third quarter of 2016, primarily due to increased spending from existing customers and the Western Pacific Enterprises (“WPE”) acquisition in late 2016.
Consolidated gross profit increased to $34.9 million in the third quarter of 2017, compared to $34.1 million in the third quarter of 2016. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to higher revenue, partially offset by lower overall gross margin. Gross margin decreased to 9.3 percent for the third quarter of 2017 from 12.0 percent for the third quarter of 2016. The decrease in gross margin was largely due to lower margins on certain T&D projects due to weather and lower productivity, as well as project delays and schedule extensions related to a T&D project in Canada. Margins were also negatively impacted by costs associated with organic and acquisition growth. Changes in estimates of gross profit on certain projects, resulted in a gross margin decrease of 0.9 percent for the third quarter of 2017. Gross margin increased 0.7 percent due to changes in estimates of gross profit on certain projects for the third quarter of 2016.
Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) increased to $23.8 million in the third quarter of 2017, compared to $23.2 million in the third quarter of 2016. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to $1.4 million of costs associated with our expansion into new geographic markets and higher payroll costs to support operations, largely offset by lower bonus and profit sharing costs. As a percentage of revenues, SG&A decreased to 6.4 percent for the third quarter of 2017 from 8.2 percent for the third quarter of 2016.
Other expense increased from $0.4 million in the third quarter of 2016 to $1.4 million in the third quarter of 2017 primarily due to a change in contingent consideration of $1.5 million.
The income tax provision was $4.2 million for the third quarter of 2017, with an effective tax rate of 44.8 percent, compared to a provision of $4.2 million for the third quarter of 2016, with an effective tax rate of 40.4 percent. The increase in the tax rate in the third quarter of 2017 was primarily caused by our inability to utilize losses experienced in certain Canadian operations.
For the third quarter of 2017, net income was $5.1 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, compared to $6.1 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, for the same period of 2016. Third quarter 2017 EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $20.1 million, or 5.4 percent of revenues, compared to $20.5 million, or 7.2 percent of revenues, in the third quarter of 2016.
MYR reported first nine-months 2017 revenues of $1.03 billion, an increase of $231.0 million, or 28.9 percent, compared to first nine-months 2016. Specifically, the T&D segment reported revenues of $651.5 million, an increase of $83.5 million, or 14.7 percent, from the first nine months of 2016, primarily due to higher revenue from large transmission projects and an increase in distribution projects. The C&I segment reported first nine-months 2017 revenues of $378.3 million, an increase of $147.5 million, or 63.9 percent, from first nine-months 2016, primarily due to increased spending from existing customers and the WPE acquisition in late 2016.
Consolidated gross profit was $88.1 million in the first nine months of 2017, compared to $92.8 million in the first nine months of 2016. The decrease in gross profit was primarily due to lower overall gross margin, partially offset by higher revenue. Gross margin decreased to 8.6 percent for the first nine months of 2017 from 11.6 percent for the first nine months of 2016. The decline in our gross margin was largely due to write-downs on three projects. Two projects in the Midwest U.S. were significantly impacted by weather resulting in unbudgeted costs associated with right-of-way access, lower productivity and increased road damage and repair requirements. As a result, we wrote down $4.1 million for these projects in the first nine months of 2017. One T&D project in Canada experienced cost impacts mainly associated with project delays and schedule extensions. Although we are working with our client to recover these costs, we have not recognized all of the revenues relating to various pending project claims and change orders, which resulted in write-downs on this project of $3.3 million. A higher mix of smaller, shorter duration T&D work also impacted margins in the first nine months of 2017. The shift in the mix of work also caused a decline in our fleet utilization and increased mobilization and demobilization costs. Margins were also impacted by costs associated with organic and acquisition growth. These impacts were partially offset by settlements related to previously unrecognized revenues on a project claim and pending change orders. Changes in estimates of gross profit on certain projects, including those discussed above, resulted in a gross margin decrease of 0.7 percent for the first nine months of 2017. Gross margin decreased 0.5 percent due to changes in estimates of gross profit on certain projects for the first nine months of 2016.
Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) increased to $74.6 million in the first nine months of 2017, compared to $69.6 million in the first nine months of 2016. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to $6.6 million of costs associated with our expansion into new geographic markets and higher payroll costs to support operations, partially offset by lower bonus and profit sharing costs. Additionally, $1.0 million of costs associated with activist investor activities were incurred in the first nine months of 2016. As a percentage of revenues, SG&A decreased to 7.2 percent for the first nine months of 2017 from 8.7 percent for the first nine months of 2016.
The income tax provision was $6.4 million for the first nine months of 2017 with an effective tax rate of 45.6 percent, compared to a provision of $8.8 million for the first nine months of 2016 with an effective tax rate of 39.1 percent. The increase in the tax rate in first nine months of 2017 was primarily caused by our inability to utilize losses experienced in certain Canadian operations, partially offset by excess tax benefits of approximately $1.0 million pertaining to the vesting of stock awards and the exercise of stock options.
For the first nine months of 2017, net income was $7.6 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, compared to $13.6 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, for the same period of 2016. First nine-months 2017 EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $45.2 million, or 4.4 percent of revenues, compared to $52.7 million, or 6.6 percent of revenues, in the first nine months of 2016.
As of September 30, 2017, MYR's backlog was $701.7 million, which consisted of $313.6 million in the T&D segment and $388.1 million in the C&I segment, was $69.2 million higher than the $632.5 million reported at June 30, 2017. T&D backlog increased $18.6 million, or 6.3 percent, from June 30, 2017, while C&I backlog increased $50.6 million, or 15.0 percent, over the same period. Total backlog at September 30, 2017 increased $81.1 million, or 13.1 percent, from the $620.6 million reported at September 30, 2016. The increase in backlog does not include any amount related to the previously announced Denver Central 70 Project. We expect this project to be added to backlog during 2018.
As of September 30, 2017, MYR had $149.6 million of borrowing availability under its credit facility.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement MYR’s financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP), MYR uses certain non-GAAP measures. Reconciliation to the nearest GAAP measures of all non-GAAP measures included in this press release can be found at the end of this release. MYR’s definitions of these non-GAAP measures may differ from similarly titled measures used by others. These non-GAAP measures should be considered supplemental to, and not a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.
MYR believes that these non-GAAP measures are useful because they (i) provide both management and investors meaningful supplemental information regarding financial performance by excluding certain expenses and benefits that may not be indicative of recurring core business operating results, (ii) permit investors to view MYR’s performance using the same tools that management uses to evaluate MYR’s past performance, reportable business segments and prospects for future performance, (iii) publicly disclose results that are relevant to financial covenants included in MYR’s credit facility and (iv) otherwise provide supplemental information that may be useful to investors in evaluating MYR.
