Transcat Reports Fiscal 2015 Second Quarter Record Revenue of $31.1 Million; Earnings per Diluted Share Up 20%

  • Second quarter consolidated operating income grew 18.3% on 7.7% revenue growth
  • Strong Service segment leverage: Operating income up 2.5x to $0.7 million on 9.8% increase in segment revenue
  • Distribution segment sales grew 6.4% amid competitive market conditions
  • Expanded leadership position in Canada with acquisition of Ulrich Metrology Inc.

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Oct. 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Transcat, Inc. (Nasdaq:TRNS) ("Transcat" or the "Company"), a leading provider of accredited calibration and compliance services and distributor of professional grade handheld test, measurement and control instrumentation, today reported financial results for its fiscal 2015 second quarter ended September 27, 2014. Included in reported results are those of Ulrich Metrology Inc., acquired on August 31, 2014.

Fiscal 2015 second quarter total revenue increased 7.7% to a record $31.1 million from $28.9 million in the second quarter of the prior fiscal year, driven by Service segment revenue growth of 9.8% and Distribution segment sales increase of 6.4%.

Lee D. Rudow, President and CEO of Transcat, commented, "We delivered a strong quarter with record revenue that was supported by both segments. In our Service segment, we continue to capture market share and expand through acquisitions, resulting in our 22nd consecutive quarter of year-over-year revenue growth. The inherent operating leverage in our Service segment was clearly demonstrated as well. Overall, we believe growing operating income, expanding earnings and strong cash generation demonstrates the successful execution of our growth strategy."

Consolidated gross profit was $6.9 million, up $0.1 million from the prior-year period. A $0.6 million increase in Service segment gross profit offset the $0.6 million negative impact lower vendor rebates had on Distribution segment gross profit. Total operating expenses were down $0.1 million, or 2.3%, primarily from lower selling expenses. Consolidated operating income increased 18.3% to $1.5 million, compared with $1.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2014. Operating margin expanded 50 basis points to 4.9%.

Net income was up 11.4%, or $0.1 million, to $0.9 million in the quarter. Diluted earnings per share reached $0.12 compared with $0.10 per diluted share in the second quarter of fiscal 2014, a 20% increase. Adjusted EBITDA was $2.4 million, a $0.3 million, or 15.0%, increase over the same quarter of the prior fiscal year. See Note 1 on page 4 for a description of this non-GAAP financial measure and page 9 for the Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation table.

Second Quarter Review

Service Segment Operating Income Grows with Strong Organic Revenue Growth

Represents the Company's accredited calibration and compliance services business (41% of total revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2015)

  • Strong organic revenue growth drove the Service segment revenue increase of 9.8%, or $1.1 million, to a record second quarter of $12.6 million.
  • Service segment gross profit was $3.3 million compared with $2.7 million in the prior fiscal year period. Gross margin for the segment improved 240 basis points to 26.0%.
  • Operating expenses were $2.6 million compared with $2.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2014. Included in the 2015 second quarter operating expenses were $0.1 million of acquisition-related expenses.
  • Operating Income more than doubled to $0.7 million from $0.3 million in last year's second quarter. Service segment operating margin expanded 300 basis points to 5.3% quarter-over-quarter.
  • Service segment contribution margin grew 48.3% to $1.7 million, up from $1.1 million in the prior fiscal year period. Service segment Adjusted EBITDA was $1.3 million, an increase of 57.1% from $0.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2014. As a percentage of Service segment revenue, Adjusted EBITDA was 10.0% and 7.0% in the second quarters of fiscal 2015 and 2014, respectively. See Note 1 on page 4 for descriptions of these non-GAAP financial measures and pages 9 & 10 for the Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation table and the contribution margin calculation in the Additional Information – Business Segment Data table.

Distribution Segment Sales Grow Despite Tough Market Conditions

Represents the Company's distribution of professional grade handheld test, measurement and control instrumentation business (59% of total revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2015)

  • Distribution sales improved $1.1 million, or 6.4%, from the second quarter of fiscal 2014, as the Company used competitive pricing strategies to gain volume and market share. There were 62 business days in the most recent quarter, consistent with the prior-year period.
  • Distribution segment gross profit was down $0.5 million to $3.7 million from the second quarter of fiscal 2014. Gross margin was 19.7% compared with 23.6% in the prior-year period. Lower year-over-year vendor rebates had a 340 basis point negative impact on segment gross margin. Vendor rebates tend to be cyclical as target levels are typically established by some vendors using growth rates based on prior-year results. Higher cooperative advertising income helped to partially offset the effect of lower vendor rebates and competitive pricing strategies on gross margin.
  • Lower selling and administrative expenses helped to partially mitigate lower gross profit, resulting in a $0.2 million reduction in operating income, to $0.9 million, compared with the prior fiscal year period.
  • Contribution margin for the Distribution segment was $2.1 million compared with $2.4 million in the prior fiscal year period. Distribution segment Adjusted EBITDA was $1.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2015 compared with $1.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2014. See Note 1 on page 4 for descriptions of these non-GAAP financial measures and pages 9 & 10 for the Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation table and contribution margin calculation in the Additional Information – Business Segment Data table.

Six-Month Review

Total revenue increased 4.6% to $60.2 million from $57.6 million in the prior fiscal year period. Consolidated gross profit was $13.6 million, down $0.4 million, or 3.1%, from the first half of fiscal 2014. Gross margin declined 180 basis points to 22.6%, primarily due to lower Distribution segment vendor rebates which accounted for 170 basis points of the decline.

Service Segment:

  • Revenue for the first half of fiscal 2015 increased 6.6% to $24.7 million over the prior-year period, primarily from organic growth. On a trailing twelve-month basis, Service segment revenue was $49.7 million, an increase of 9.7% when compared to the corresponding trailing-twelve month period of fiscal 2014. The Company believes that trailing twelve-month data is more indicative of the long-term progress of the Service segment.
  • Service segment gross margin decreased 30 basis points to 25.1% in the first six months of fiscal 2015 compared with 25.4% in the same period of fiscal 2014. Service segment gross margin was affected by the mix of service work as the percentage of outsourced services increased to 15.8% of Service segment revenue from 15.1% in the first six months of fiscal 2014. On a trailing twelve-month basis, Service segment gross margin was up 20 basis points to 26.4%.

Distribution Segment:

  • Sales in the first half of fiscal 2015 increased 3.2% to $35.5 million compared with the same period of fiscal 2014.
  • Year-to-date Distribution segment gross margin decreased 280 basis points from the prior-year period, which primarily reflects lower vendor rebates.

Consolidated operating expenses decreased 2.4% to $11.3 million from $11.6 million in the first six months of the prior fiscal year. As a percentage of total revenue, operating expenses were 18.8%, down from 20.2% in the same period of fiscal 2014, reflecting reduced selling and administrative expenses. Fiscal 2015 year-to-date operating income was down 6.5%, or $0.2 million, to $2.3 million. Net income was $1.3 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, in the first six months of fiscal 2015 compared with $1.5 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, in the prior fiscal year period.

Adjusted EBITDA was $3.9 million in the first six months of fiscal 2015 compared with $4.1 million for the same period in fiscal 2014. See Note 1 on page 4 for a description of this non-GAAP financial measure and page 9 for the Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation table.

Balance Sheet Supports Acquisition Strategy

On August 26, 2014, the Company entered into an amendment to its secured revolving credit facility agreement, increasing the funds available under the credit facility from $20 million to a maximum of $30 million and extending the term to September 2018. The amendment also increased borrowings available for acquisitions from $10 million to $15 million in any fiscal year. As of September 27, 2014, the Company had $10.8 million in availability under its secured revolving credit facility and $0.3 million in cash. The Ulrich Metrology acquisition used $6.7 million of borrowings available for acquisitions, leaving $8.3 million available for acquisitions for the remainder of the fiscal year.

John J. Zimmer, Senior Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer, commented, "We continue to maintain a high degree of financial flexibility and remain focused on opportunities to deploy cash for earnings accretion. We have an active acquisition pipeline and expect calibration capability investments will remain an integral part of our cash allocation."

Capital expenditures in the first six months of fiscal 2015 were $1.9 million compared with $0.6 million in the first half of fiscal 2014, and were primarily for additional service capabilities and information technology upgrades, including the Company's new state-of-the-art C3 Metrology Management Software. The Company expects total capital expenditures to be approximately $3.5 million in fiscal 2015.

Outlook

Mr. Rudow concluded, "We expect continued strength in our Service segment and believe our market leadership positions across both segments, along with strategic acquisitions, will continue to foster meaningful growth. Additionally, we are excited about the Ulrich Metrology acquisition, which has advanced our market position in Canada. On a consolidated basis, we expect to achieve strong operating income growth for the fiscal year."

NOTE 1 – Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting net income, a U.S. generally accepted accounting principle ("GAAP") measure, we present Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and non-cash stock compensation expense), which is a non-GAAP measure. The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA allows investors to view its performance in a manner similar to the methods used by management and provides additional insight into its operating results. Adjusted EBITDA is not calculated through the application of GAAP and is not the required form of disclosure by the Securities and Exchange Commission. As such, it should not be considered as a substitute for the GAAP measure of net income and, therefore, should not be used in isolation of, but in conjunction with, the GAAP measure. The use of any non-GAAP measure may produce results that vary from the GAAP measure and may not be comparable to a similarly defined non-GAAP measure used by other companies. See the attached Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation table on page 9.

Contribution margin, a non-GAAP financial measure, consists of gross profit less selling, marketing and warehouse expenses. We believe contribution margin provides management and users of the financial statements information about our ability to cover our operating costs, such as technology and general and administrative expenses. Contribution margin is used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be relied upon to the exclusion of GAAP financial measures. The material limitation associated with the use of contribution margin is that it is an incomplete measure of profitability as it does not include all operating expenses or non-operating income and expenses. Management compensates for these limitations when using this measure by looking at other GAAP measures, such as operating income (loss) and net income (loss). For further details on contribution margin, see the calculation of this non-GAAP financial measure and the reconciliation of contribution margin to gross profit in the Additional Information – Business Segment Data tables on pages 10 and 11.
