July 27, 2022 MYR Group Inc. Announces Second-Quarter and First-Half 2022 Results

HENDERSON, Colo., July 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MYR Group Inc. (“MYR”) (NASDAQ: MYRG), a holding company of leading specialty contractors serving the electric utility infrastructure, commercial and industrial construction markets in the United States and Canada, announced today its second-quarter and first-half 2022 financial results.

Highlights for Second Quarter 2022

  • Record high quarterly revenues of $708.1 million
  • Quarterly net income of $19.7 million and earnings per diluted share of $1.15
  • Record high quarterly EBITDA of $43.9 million
  • Record backlog of $2.44 billion

Management Comments
Rick Swartz, MYR’s President and CEO, said, “Our solid performance this quarter continues to demonstrate the overall strength in the markets we serve and our ability to capitalize on new opportunities that deepen and expand our market presence. We continue to invest in our team, apply proven management practices and foster customer relationships that strengthen our performance. The Transmission and Distribution (“T&D”) and Commercial and Industrial (“C&I”) markets are seeing long-term sustained investment, presenting exciting opportunities for future growth.”

Second Quarter Results
MYR reported second-quarter 2022 revenues of $708.1 million, an increase of $58.5 million, or 9.0 percent, compared to the second quarter of 2021. Specifically, our T&D segment reported revenues of $415.2 million for the second quarter of 2022, an increase of $88.4 million, or 27.0 percent, from the second quarter of 2021, primarily due to an increase in revenue on distribution projects, including incremental distribution revenues from the acquired Powerline Plus Companies and an increase in revenue from transmission projects. Our C&I segment reported revenues of $292.9 million for the second quarter of 2022, a decrease of $29.8 million, or 9.3 percent, from the second quarter of 2021, primarily due to a decrease in revenue in certain geographical areas.

Consolidated gross profit in second quarter of 2022 was $80.9 million, a decrease of $0.1 million or 0.2 percent, from the second quarter of 2021. The decrease in gross profit was due to lower margins, partially offset by higher revenues. Gross margin was 11.4 percent for the second quarter of 2022 compared to 12.5 percent for the second quarter of 2021. The decrease in gross margin was primarily due to overall cost increases mainly associated with supply chain disruptions, inflation and continued impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, some of which also caused labor and material inefficiencies on certain projects. Gross margin was also negatively impacted by an unfavorable change order adjustment on a project and inclement weather experienced on certain projects. These margin decreases were partially offset by better-than-anticipated productivity on certain projects and a favorable job close out. Changes in estimates of gross profit on certain projects resulted in a gross margin decrease of 0.1 percent and an increase of 0.8 percent for the second quarter of 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Selling, general and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) increased to $52.0 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $51.9 million for the second quarter of 2021. The period-over-period increase was primarily due to costs associated with the recently acquired Powerline Plus Companies partially offset by a decrease in employee incentive compensation costs.

Amortization of intangible assets increased to $3.3 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $0.6 million for the second quarter of 2021. The period-over-period increase was primarily due to amortization related to certain intangibles acquired with the Powerline Plus Companies.

Other income, net increased to $2.3 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $0.1 million for the second quarter of 2021. The change was largely due to funds received under the Canadian Emergency Wage Subsidy (“CEWS”) program, which were attributable to a C&I segment company.

Income tax expense was $8.2 million for the second quarter of 2022, with an effective tax rate of 29.4 percent, compared to income tax expense of $7.9 million for the second quarter of 2021, with an effective tax rate of 27.0 percent. The period-over-period increase in tax rate was primarily due to an increase in permanent difference items, partially offset by the reduction of the impact of the global intangible low tax income (“GILTI”).

For the second quarter of 2022, net income was $19.7 million, or $1.15 per diluted share, compared to $21.2 million, or $1.24 per diluted share, for the same period of 2021. Second-quarter 2022 EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $43.9 million, compared to $41.2 million in the second quarter of 2021.

First-Half Results
MYR reported first-half 2022 revenues of $1.34 billion, an increase of $102.6 million, or 8.3 percent, compared to the first half of 2021. Specifically, the T&D segment reported revenues of $780.1 million, an increase of $138.4 million, or 21.6 percent, from the first half of 2021, primarily due to an increase in revenue on distribution projects, including incremental distribution revenues from the Powerline Plus Companies and an increase in revenue from transmission projects. The C&I segment reported revenues of $564.6 million, a decrease of $35.7 million, or 5.9 percent from the first half of 2021, primarily due to a decrease in revenue in certain geographical areas.

Consolidated gross profit increased to $161.3 million in the first half of 2022, an increase of $3.3 million or 2.1 percent, from the first half of 2021. The increase in gross profit was due to higher revenues, partially offset by lower margins. Gross margin was 12.0 percent for the first half of 2022 compared to 12.7 percent for the first half of 2021. The decrease in gross margin was primarily due to overall cost increases mainly associated with supply chain disruptions, inflation and continued impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, some of which also caused labor and material inefficiencies on certain projects, as well as inclement weather experienced on certain projects. These margin decreases were partially offset by favorable job close outs and better-than-anticipated productivity on certain projects. Changes in estimates of gross profit on certain projects resulted in gross margin increases of 0.3 percent the first half of 2022 and 2021.

SG&A increased to $105.6 million in the first half of 2022, compared to $101.5 million for the first half of 2021. The period-over-period increase was primarily due to costs associated with the recently acquired Powerline Plus Companies and an increase in employee-related expenses, partially offset by a decrease in employee incentive compensation costs.

Amortization of intangible assets increased to $6.0 million in the first half of 2022, compared to $1.2 million for the first half of 2021. The period-over-period increase was primarily due to amortization related to certain intangibles acquired with the Powerline Plus Companies.

Other income, net increased to $2.3 million in the first half of 2022, compared to $0.1 million for the first half of 2021. The change was largely due to funds received under the CEWS program, which were attributable to a C&I segment company.

Income tax expense was $12.0 million for the first half of 2022, with an effective tax rate of 22.8 percent, compared to income tax expense of $14.9 million for the first half of 2021, with an effective tax rate of 26.6 percent. The period-over-period decrease in tax rate was primarily due to a favorable impact from stock compensation excess tax benefits and the reduction of the impact of GILTI, partially offset by an increase in other permanent difference items.

For the first half of 2022, net income was $40.4 million, or $2.36 per diluted share, compared to $41.1 million, or $2.41 per diluted share, for the same period of 2021.

Backlog
As of June 30, 2022, MYR’s backlog was $2.44 billion, compared to $2.41 billion as of March 31, 2022. As of June 30, 2022, T&D backlog was $1.06 billion, and C&I backlog was $1.38 billion. Total backlog at June 30, 2022 increased $878.1 million, or 56.0 percent, from the $1.57 billion reported at June 30, 2021.

Balance Sheet
As of June 30, 2022, MYR had $310.3 million of borrowing availability under its $375 million revolving 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.

The forward-looking statements may include projections and estimates concerning the timing and success of specific projects and our future production, revenue, income, capital spending, segment improvements and investments.

(1) Last-twelve-months earnings per share is the sum of earnings per share reported in the last four quarters.
(2) Last-twelve-months weighted average basic and diluted shares were determined by adding the weighted average shares reported for the last four quarters and dividing by four.
(3) Funded debt includes outstanding borrowings under our revolving credit facility and our outstanding equipment notes.
(4) These financial performance measures are provided as supplemental information to the financial statements. These measures are used by management to evaluate our past performance, our prospects for future performance and our ability to comply with certain material covenants as defined within our credit agreement, 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.
(5) EBIA, net of taxes is defined as net income plus net interest plus amortization of intangible assets, less the tax impact of net interest and amortization of intangible assets. The tax impact of net interest and amortization of intangible assets is computed by multiplying net interest and amortization of intangible assets by the effective tax rate. Management uses EBIA, net of taxes, to measure our results exclusive of the impact of financing and amortization of intangible assets costs.
(6) 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. Certain material covenants contained within our credit agreement are based on EBITDA with certain additional adjustments, including our interest coverage ratio and leverage ratio, which we must comply with to avoid potential immediate repayment of amounts borrowed or additional fees to seek relief from our lenders. In addition, management considers EBITDA a useful measure because it provides MYR Group Inc. and its investors with an additional tool to compare our operating performance on a consistent basis by removing the impact of certain items that management believes to not directly reflect the company’s core operations. Management further believes that EBITDA is useful to investors and other external users of our financial statements in evaluating the company’s operating performance and cash flow because EBITDA is widely used by investors to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to items such as interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization, which can vary substantially from company to company depending upon accounting methods and book value of assets, useful lives placed on assets, capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired.
(7) EBITDA per diluted 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.
(8) 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.
(9) Book value per period end share is calculated by dividing total stockholders’ equity at the end of the period by the period end shares outstanding.
(10) Tangible book value is calculated by subtracting goodwill and intangible assets outstanding at the end of the period from stockholders’ equity. Tangible book value is not recognized under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to book value or stockholders’ equity.
(11) Tangible book value per period end share is calculated by dividing tangible book value at the end of the period by the period end number of shares outstanding. Tangible book value per period end share is not recognized under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to income per diluted share.
(12) The funded debt to equity ratio is calculated by dividing total funded debt at the end of the period by total stockholders’ equity at the end of the period.
(13) Asset turnover is calculated by dividing the current period revenue by total assets at the beginning of the period.
(14) Return on assets is calculated by dividing net income for the period by total assets at the beginning of the period.
(15) Return on equity is calculated by dividing net income for the period by total stockholders’ equity at the beginning of the period.
(16) Period end shares is calculated by adding average common stock equivalents for the quarter to the period end balance of common stock outstanding. Period end shares is not recognized under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to diluted shares. Management views period end shares as a better measure of shares outstanding as of the end of the period.
(17) Average invested capital is calculated by adding net funded debt (total funded debt less cash and marketable securities) to total stockholders’ equity and calculating the average of the beginning and ending of each period.
(18) Return on invested capital is calculated by dividing EBIA, net of taxes, less any dividends, by average invested capital. Return on invested capital is not recognized under GAAP, and is a key metric used by management to determine our executive compensation.
