Limbach Holdings Reports Third Quarter 2019 Results

Q3 2019 Revenue of $147.8 million; Aggregate Backlog of $561.6 million at Quarter End

Announcing Revised Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA Guidance for Fiscal Year 2019

Conference Call Scheduled for 9 a.m. ET on November 15, 2019

PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Limbach Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: LMB) (“Limbach” or the “Company”) today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2019. Total Q3 2019 revenue was $147.8 million, up 9.4% from the prior year period. Total Q3 2019 gross margin increased to 12% versus 7.9% in the prior year period, inclusive of net project write-downs during the quarter.

Other key items in the quarter included (unless noted, all financial comparisons are to the prior-year quarter):

  • Service segment continues to lead growth as the Company focuses on owner direct relationships and recurring revenue from maintenance agreements.
  • Macroeconomic conditions remain favorable both geographically and in Limbach’s target verticals.
  • The Company continues to shift resources to its Service segment in order to capitalize on higher-growth opportunities anticipated for that business.
  • Aggregate backlog at September 30, 2019 was $561.6 million, consisting of $516.8 million for the Construction segment and $44.8 million for the Service segment. Management currently expects approximately 24.3% of aggregate backlog to be recognized as revenue by the end of fiscal 2019.
  • The Company is updating fiscal 2019 guidance for both revenue and adjusted EBITDA. Limbach expects revenue to be in the range of $550 million to $570 million (versus a previously announced target of $560 million) and adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $14 million to $18 million (versus a previously announced target of $22.5 million).
  • The Company is also announcing the waiver by its senior lenders of certain covenant non-compliance as of August 31, 2019 under its credit facilities, and the amendment of certain other financial covenants.
  • The Company is announcing that Michael McCann will assume the role of the Company’s sole Chief Operating Officer, effective immediately.

Management Commentary

Charlie Bacon, CEO of Limbach, commented, “Our top-line results for the third quarter demonstrated continued momentum across the Company, as both our segments posted solid revenue and profit growth compared to last year’s third quarter. Profitability in the Construction segment was adversely impacted by project write-downs on certain projects, offset in part by other project write-ups elsewhere in our Construction operations. We are pursuing both change orders and claims, where appropriate, and expect a resolution on many of these matters in the first half of 2020. We realize that there is much additional work that needs to be done in order to address the challenges we are facing within our Construction segment. The Company is committed to prioritizing and focusing on addressing those challenges, including redeploying operating resources and strengthening risk management processes throughout the organization.”

Mr. Bacon continued, “As we have communicated to the investment community, it is a priority to rapidly grow the Service segment, as it generates higher relative margins, more consistent recurring revenue, and has a reduced risk profile relative to our Construction operations. At the same time, we are directing our Construction sales staff to focus more selectively on opportunities that leverage Limbach’s core competencies which will deliver higher-margins. This more stringent project selection process will naturally moderate our top line growth in the Construction segment, but with a view towards meaningful improvement in profitability. Coupled with the enhanced sales effort in the Service segment, we expect to see continued progress in driving towards our goal of a 70%/30% split between Construction and Service revenue over the next few years.”

“I am also pleased that Mike McCann is stepping into the role of sole COO. Mike has proven to me and the Board that he drives success. Since joining us in 2010, he has consistently delivered strong results in management roles of increasing responsibility, including in leading the continuing turn-around of the Mid-Atlantic region. We look forward to Mike’s leadership and efforts in driving stronger profitability and greater cash flow across the Limbach organization,” concluded Mr. Bacon.

Third Quarter Summary

Revenue

Q3 2019 revenue of $147.8 million was up 9.4% versus $135.1 million for the prior year quarter. Service segment revenue of $29.7 million was up 15.7% while Construction segment revenue of $118.1 million was up 7.9%. Limbach continues to target a moderate top-line growth rate with an emphasis on securing higher-margin projects. Construction operations accounted for 79.9% of consolidated total revenue with Service operations providing the remaining 20.1%.

Gross Margin

Gross margin for Q3 2019 was 12%, compared with 7.9% in the prior year quarter. Service segment gross margin improved to 24.2%, compared with 22.3% in the prior year quarter, due primarily to positive pricing trends. Construction segment gross margin improved to 9%, inclusive of write-downs totaling $3.7 million, compared to 4.5% for the prior year quarter which included write-downs totaling $9.0 million. Gross profit was $17.8 million, compared with $10.7 million for the prior year quarter.

Selling, General and Administrative (“SG&A”) Expense

Q3 2019 SG&A expense was $16.6 million, compared to $13.3 million in the prior year quarter. The year-over-year increase in SG&A expense was primarily due to incremental payroll expense of $3.2 million associated with the full reversal of the Company’s incentive accrual in the Q3 of 2018 compared to new hires and incentives accrued during the current quarter. As a percentage of consolidated total revenue, SG&A expense accounted for 11.2% of consolidated total revenue as compared with 9.9% in the prior year quarter.

Other (Expense)

During the current quarter, the Company incurred a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of approximately $4.4 million as a result of the valuation effects of management decreasing its forecasted cash flows within the Construction segment. The decreased forecasted cash flows are due to the Company’s continued focus on expanding its Service segment and the planned reduction and elimination of certain large-scale construction projects that typically require a large amount of working capital, as well as an increased risk of claims and low historical margins.

Net (Loss)

Net (loss) attributable to Limbach Holdings, Inc. common stockholders was $(3.4) million, compared with a net (loss) attributable to Limbach Holdings, Inc. common stockholders of $(3.5) million in the prior year quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA was $3.2 million, compared with $(0.9) million for the prior year quarter. The primary contributor to the improvement in Adjusted EBITDA was the improvement in gross profit year over year, offset by the increase in SG&A expense.

Nine Months YTD Summary

Revenue

Year-to-date 2019 revenue of $414.5 million was up 4.9% versus $395.1 million for the prior year period. Construction segment revenue of $327.7 million was up 2.4% while Service segment revenue of $86.8 million was up 15.4%. Construction segment revenue improved modestly as growth in the majority of the Company’s business units offset the planned reduction in the Mid-Atlantic region’s volume, along with the substantial completion of a sizable project in the Michigan region since the second quarter of 2018. The Construction segment accounted for 79.1% of consolidated total revenue while the Service segment provided the remaining 20.9%.

Gross Margin

Gross margin for the first nine months of 2019 was 13.3%, compared with 10.1% in the prior year period due to the combination of reduced write-downs along with an increased proportion of revenue in the higher-margin Service segment. Service segment gross margin was 24.1%, compared with 21.3% in the prior year period due to improved pricing and volume. Construction segment gross margin was 10.5% for the period compared to 7.4% for the prior year period, with the year over year improvement attributable primarily to the improved profitability in the Mid-Atlantic region, along with strong margins on work in the Florida region. Gross profit for the first nine months of 2019 was $55.2 million, compared with $39.8 million for the prior year period.

Selling, General and Administrative Expense

Year to date 2019 SG&A expense was $49.7 million, compared to $42.7 million in the prior year period. The increase in SG&A expense was due to payroll expense associated with new hires, incentive compensation accruals, and retention bonus payments made during the second quarter of 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, SG&A expenses included a $3.5 million increase primarily due to the full reversal of the incentives accrual for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. As a percentage of consolidated total revenue, SG&A accounted for 12.0% compared with 10.8% in the prior year period.

Other (Expense)

As noted in the preceding discussion of the third quarter of 2019, the Company recorded a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of approximately $(4.4) million which negatively impacted our results for the first nine months.

Net (Loss)

Net (loss) attributable to Limbach Holdings, Inc. common stockholders for the first nine months of 2019 was $(2.8) million, compared with a net (loss) attributable to Limbach Holdings, Inc. common stockholders of $(7.3) million in the prior year period. The main drivers of the year over year improvement in Net (Loss) were the improvement in gross margins, offset in part by increased SG&A expense, coupled with the absence of expense related to the partial redemption of the Company’s previously-outstanding preferred stock in 2019, which incurred a charge of $2.2 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA was $11.0 million for the year to date period, compared with $2.1 million in the prior year period. The year over year increase was due primarily to fewer project write downs in 2019 compared with 2018.

Backlog

Aggregate backlog at September 30, 2019 was $561.6 million, compared with $559.7 million at December 31, 2018 and $487.5 million at September 30, 2018. The Company also reasonably expects awards of $344.6 million of work for the Construction segment that has not yet been recorded as backlog. Within the aggregate backlog figures, backlog for the Construction segment at September 30, 2019 was $516.8 million, versus $435.8 million at September 30, 2018. Backlog for the Service segment was $44.8 million as of September 30, 2019 compared with $ $51.7 million at September 30, 2018. The Company expects approximately 24.3% of total backlog to be converted to revenue within the current fiscal year.

Balance Sheet

At September 30, 2019, the Company had current assets of $195.2 million and current liabilities of $154.8 million, representing a current ratio of 1.26x. Working capital was $40.3 million at September 30, 2019, an increase of $17.5 million from December 31, 2018. Long-term debt was $39.6 million at September 30, 2019, up from $23.6 million at December 31, 2018. The Company had no borrowings against its $14.0 million credit revolver at September 30, 2019.

2019 Guidance

The Company is revising its previously announced revenue and Adjusted EBITDA guidance for fiscal year 2019, as summarized in the table below.

 

FY 2019 Estimates

 

Current

Previous

Revenue

$550 million - $570 million

$560 million

Adjusted EBITDA

$14 million - $18 million

$22.5 million

With respect to projected fiscal year 2019 Adjusted EBITDA, a quantitative reconciliation is not available without unreasonable efforts due to the high variability, complexity and low visibility with respect to taxes and other items, which are excluded from Adjusted EBITDA. We expect the variability of this item to have a potentially unpredictable, and potentially significant, impact on our future GAAP financial results.

As of August 31, 2019, the Company was not in compliance with the total leverage ratio covenant under both of the Company’s credit facilities, including the existing term loan facilities with Cortland Capital Market Services LLC, as collateral agent and administrative agent and CB Agent Services LLC, as origination agent (the “2019 Refinancing Agreement”). The lenders have waived the event of default arising from this noncompliance. Additionally, as of November 14, 2019, the Company has entered into an amendment to the 2019 Refinancing Agreement whereby the Company has agreed to pay increased interest rates, to provide the lenders with certain approval rights related to proposed acquisitions, and certain additional financial covenants. The Company also entered into an amendment with Citizens Bank, N.A. related to its revolving credit facility whereby the Company has agreed to certain additional financial covenants. The Company is also required to pay certain fees and expenses related to these amendments.

* Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA

In assessing the performance of our business, management utilizes a variety of financial and performance measures. The key measure is Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) plus depreciation and amortization expense, interest expense, and taxes, as further adjusted to eliminate the impact of, when applicable, other non-cash items or expenses that are unusual or non-recurring that we believe do not reflect our core operating results. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is meaningful to our investors to enhance their understanding of our financial performance for the current period and our ability to generate cash flows from operations that are available for taxes, capital expenditures and debt service. We understand that Adjusted EBITDA is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties as a measure of financial performance and to compare our performance with the performance of other companies that report Adjusted EBITDA. Our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, however, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. When assessing our operating performance, investors and others should not consider this data in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss) calculated in accordance with GAAP. Further, the results presented by Adjusted EBITDA cannot be achieved without incurring the costs that the measure excludes. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss), the most comparable GAAP measure, is provided below.
