Management Comments
Bill Koertner, MYR's President and CEO, said, "In 2015, our revenues grew to $1.062 billion - a record for our company. We also continued to execute on our three pronged strategy of organic growth, strategic acquisitions and prudent capital returns. We established eight new offices in key growth markets across the U.S. and Canada that allow us to expand our geographic reach. We also completed two strategic acquisitions that further expand our capabilities and reach with new and existing customers. Additionally, we returned $27 million of capital to shareholders through our share repurchase program during the year. In addition to these repurchases, we also recently expanded our buyback program and began implementing new financing approaches for equipment and other assets to further capitalize on our financial strength. MYR's results and progress reflect our commitment to shareholder value creation and to directing capital to areas that generate the greatest returns."

Fourth-Quarter Results
MYR reported fourth-quarter 2015 revenues of $271.2 million, an increase of $20.2 million, or 8.1 percent, compared to the fourth quarter of 2014. Specifically, the Transmission and Distribution (T&D) segment reported revenues of $201.2 million, an increase of $10.0 million, or 5.2 percent, from the fourth quarter of 2014, due to organic growth into new geographic markets and the acquisition of E.S. Boulos Company ("ESB"), partially offset by a decline in revenue from large, multi-year projects. The Commercial and Industrial (C&I) segment reported fourth-quarter 2015 revenues of $70.0 million, an increase of $10.2 million, or 17.0 percent, compared to fourth quarter of 2014, due primarily to the acquisition of ESB.

Consolidated gross profit decreased to $32.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to $42.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2014. The decrease in gross profit was primarily due to lower gross margins partially offset by increased revenues. Gross margin decreased to 12.0 percent for the fourth quarter of 2015 from 16.8 percent for the fourth quarter of 2014. The margin for the fourth quarter of 2014 of 16.8 percent significantly benefited from the successful execution and closeout of several large, multi-year transmission projects that included resolution of significant change orders and claims. Additionally, some of our jobs underperformed in the fourth quarter of 2015 due to labor productivity (impacted primarily by weather and project constraints) below previous estimates, partially offset by favorable fleet utilization. Changes in estimates of gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2015 on certain projects resulted in a gross margin decrease of 0.9 percent. Changes in estimates of gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2014 on certain projects, including several large claims and change orders, resulted in a gross margin increase of 3.5 percent.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $22.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2015 from $19.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2014. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to the reversal of a $2.3 million legal reserve in the fourth quarter of 2014, $1.4 million of cost associated with an executive transition and higher personnel and overhead costs to support our organic and acquisitive geographic market expansion, partially offset by lower bonus and profit sharing costs. As a percentage of revenues, selling, general and administrative expenses increased to 8.4 percent for the fourth quarter of 2015 from 7.8 percent for the fourth quarter of 2014.

For the fourth quarter of 2015, net income was $5.9 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared to $14.1 million, or $0.66 per diluted share, for the same period of 2014. Fourth-quarter 2015 EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $20.1 million, or 7.4 percent of revenues, compared to $31.1 million, or 12.4 percent of revenues, for the fourth quarter of 2014.

Full-Year Results
MYR reported revenues of $1.062 billion for the full year of 2015, an all time high. This represents an increase of $117.7 million, or 12.5 percent, compared to the full year of 2014. The increase was primarily due to higher T&D revenues and the acquisition of ESB. We benefited from increased spending by our customers and organic growth from new geographic markets, however, our project mix of shorter-duration projects increased while the number of large, multi-year transmission projects declined. Specifically, the T&D segment reported revenues of $794.9 million, an increase of $95.3 million, or 13.6 percent, from the full year of 2014. While we benefited from increased spending by our customers, our project mix shifted away from large, multi-year transmission projects and included more shorter-duration projects. The C&I segment reported full-year 2015 revenues of $266.8 million, an increase of $22.4 million, or 9.2 percent, over the full year of 2014 due primarily to the acquisition of ESB.

Consolidated gross profit was $122.3 million in the full year of 2015, compared to $132.4 million for the full year of 2014, a decrease of $10.1 million or 7.6 percent. The decrease in gross profit was primarily due to lower gross margin partially offset by higher revenues. Gross margin decreased to 11.5 percent for the full year of 2015 from 14.0 percent for the full year of 2014. The year-over-year decline in gross margin was primarily due to favorable closeouts on several large, multi-year transmission projects in the full year of 2014. The remaining year-over-year decline in gross margin was primarily due to lower bid margins caused by increased competition in many of our markets and an increase in the number of shorter duration projects (which affects fleet utilization, labor productivity and mobilization and demobilization costs). Additionally, some of our jobs underperformed in the full year of 2015 due to labor productivity below previous estimates as a result of excessive labor turnover, rework on certain jobs and severe weather conditions in some of our markets. Changes in estimates of gross profit on certain projects resulted in gross margin increases of 0.5 percent for the full year of 2015. Changes in estimates of gross profit on certain projects, including several large claims or change orders, resulted in gross margin increases of 1.9 percent for the full year of 2014.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $79.2 million for the full year of 2015 compared to $73.8 million for the full year of 2014. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to higher personnel and overhead costs to support our organic and acquisitive geographic market expansion, the impact of reversing a $2.3 million legal reserve in the fourth quarter in 2014, $1.4 million related to an executive transition and acquisition costs associated with the ESB and HCL acquisitions, partially offset by lower bonus and profit sharing costs. As a percentage of revenues, selling, general and administrative expenses decreased to 7.5 percent for the full year of 2015 from 7.8 percent for the full year of 2014.

For the full year of 2015, net income was $27.3 million, or $1.30 per diluted share, compared to $36.5 million, or $1.69 per diluted share, for the same period of 2014. Full-year 2015 EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $83.0 million, or 7.8 percent of revenues, compared to $92.0 million, or 9.7 percent of revenues, for the full year of 2014.

Share Repurchase Program ("Repurchase Program")
On December 10, 2015, the Company increased the Repurchase Program by $25.0 million to $67.5 million. On February 10, 2016, the Repurchase Program was further increased by $75.0 million to $142.5 million, and the Company revised provisions of the Repurchase Program to enable the Company to accelerate the pace of share repurchases and to extend the Repurchase Program to April 30, 2017. The Company intends to fund the repurchase program from cash on hand and through borrowings under its credit facility.

In the twelve months ended December 31, 2015, the Company spent $27.0 million to purchase 1,183,862 shares of its common stock under the Repurchase Program, which represents 5.7 percent of shares outstanding as of December 31, 2014. During the period from January 1, 2016 through March 1, 2016, MYR purchased 582,174 shares for approximately $11.5 million, leaving $88.3 million of availability under the Repurchase Program as of March 1, 2016.

Backlog
As of December 31, 2015, our backlog was $450.9 million, consisting of $323.6 million in the T&D segment and $127.3 million in the C&I segment. Total backlog at December 31, 2015 was $25.8 million higher compared to the $425.1 million reported at September 30, 2015, resulting in quarter-over-quarter increases in 7 of the past 8 quarters. T&D backlog at December 31, 2015 increased $27.9 million, or 9.5 percent from September 30, 2015, while C&I backlog decreased $2.1 million, or 1.7 percent, over the same period. Total backlog at December 31, 2015 increased $17.3 million, or 4.0 percent, from the $433.6 million reported at December 31, 2014. The increase in the 2015 backlog was primarily due to acquisitions and organic expansion into new geographic markets, partially offset by declines in large, multi-year project activity.

Balance Sheet
As of December 31, 2015, MYR had cash and cash equivalents of $39.8 million, no funded debt and $155.7 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.

(1) MYR calculates net income per common share in accordance with ASC 260, Earnings Per Share.


(2) These financial performance measures are provided as supplemental information to the financial statements. These measures are used by management to evaluate our past performance and prospects for future performance, to review measurements included in the financial covenants in our credit facility and to compare our results with those of our peers. In addition, we believe that certain of the measures, such as book value, tangible book value, free cash flow, asset turnover, return on equity and debt leverage are measures that are monitored by sureties, lenders, lessors, suppliers and certain investors. Our calculation of each measure is described in the following notes; our calculation may not be the same as the calculations made by other companies.


(3) EBIT, net of taxes is defined as net income plus net interest, less the tax impact of net interest. The tax impact of net interest is computed by multiplying net interest by the effective tax rate. Management uses EBIT, net of taxes, to measure our results exclusive of the impact of financing costs.

(1) These financial performance measures are provided as supplemental information to the financial statements. These measures are used by management to evaluate our past performance and prospects for future performance, to review measurements included in the financial covenants in our credit facility and to compare our results with those of our peers.  In addition, we believe that certain of the measures, such as book value, tangible book value, free cash flow, asset turnover, return on equity and debt leverage are measures that are monitored by sureties, lenders, lessors, suppliers and certain investors. Our calculation of each measure is described in the following notes; our calculation may not be the same as the calculations made by other companies.


(2) EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.  EBITDA is not recognized under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to net income as a measure of operating performance or to net cash flows provided by operating activities as a measure of liquidity. EBITDA is a component of the debt to EBITDA covenant that we must report to our bank on a quarterly basis. In addition, management considers EBITDA a useful measure because it eliminates differences which are caused by different capital structures as well as different tax rates and depreciation schedules when comparing our measures to our peers' measures.


(3) EBITDA per share is calculated by dividing EBITDA by the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding for the period. EBITDA per diluted share is not recognized under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to income per diluted share.


(4) Free cash flow, which is defined as cash flow provided by operating activities minus cash flow used in purchasing property and equipment, is not recognized under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to net income, cash flow from operations or the change in cash on the balance sheet. Management views free cash flow as a measure of  operational performance, liquidity and financial health.


(5) Book value per share is calculated by dividing total stockholders' equity at the end of the period by the weighted average diluted shares outstanding for the period.


(6) Tangible book value is calculated by subtracting goodwill and intangible assets outstanding at the end of the period from stockholders' equity outstanding at the end of the period. Tangible book value is not recognized under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to book value or stockholders' equity.


(7) Tangible book value per share is calculated by dividing tangible book value at the end of the period by the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding for the period. Tangible book value per diluted share is not recognized under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to income per diluted share.


(8) The debt to equity ratio is calculated by dividing total debt at the end of the period by total stockholders' equity at the end of the period.


(9) Asset turnover is calculated by dividing the current period revenue by total assets at the beginning of the period.


(10) Return on assets is calculated by dividing net income for the period by total assets at the beginning of the period.


(11) Return on equity is calculated by dividing net income for the period by total stockholders' equity at the beginning of the period.


(12) Invested capital is calculated by adding net debt (total debt less cash and marketable securities) to total stockholders' equity.


(13) Return on invested capital is calculated by dividing EBIT, net of taxes, less any dividends, by invested capital at the beginning of the period.
