Management Comments

Bill Koertner, MYR's President and CEO said, "We are pleased with our strong financial performance in the third quarter, highlighted by four consecutive year over year quarterly increases in revenue and three consecutive quarterly increases in backlog. In addition, our cash balance increased in the third quarter even though we bought back $9.0 million of our stock under our share repurchase program and invested $10.8 million to expand our fleet." Mr. Koertner continued, "We are pleased to see further recovery in our commercial and industrial markets as well as some strengthening of our utility distribution work. Transmission work remains strong with plenty of small to mid-sized projects to bid. We are looking to expand our business in new geographic markets and with new service offerings. We intend to remain disciplined in our approach to grow smart and capitalize on our great reputation, talented people, fleet resources and strong balance sheet. We are well positioned to grow our business and deliver shareholder value."

Third-Quarter Results

MYR reported third-quarter 2014 revenues of $248.5 million, an increase of $15.6 million, or 6.7 percent, compared to the third quarter of 2013. Specifically, the Transmission and Distribution (T&D) segment reported revenues of $180.0 million, a decrease of $7.2 million, or 3.8 percent, from the third quarter of 2013. Material and subcontractor costs in our T&D segment comprised approximately 34 percent of total contract costs in the third quarter of 2014, compared to approximately 27 percent in the third quarter of 2013. The Commercial and Industrial (C&I) segment reported third-quarter 2014 revenues of $68.5 million, an increase of $22.8 million, or 49.8 percent, over the third quarter of 2013. The increase in C&I revenues was due to increased activity in most of our service offerings as well as improved market conditions in Colorado and Arizona.

Consolidated gross profit increased to $32.7 million, or 13.2 percent of revenues, in the third quarter of 2014, compared to $32.5 million, or 13.9 percent of revenues, in the third quarter of 2013. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to higher revenues. The decline in gross margin was primarily due to lower equipment utilization, particularly large specialty transmission equipment as several large transmission projects were substantially complete or nearing completion, as well as higher equipment repairs and maintenance costs. In the third quarter of 2014 and 2013, gross margin benefited by approximately 1.0 percent and 0.6 percent, respectively, from improved contract margins on several transmission projects due to cost efficiencies, additional work and effective contract management.

Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased to $19.3 million in the third quarter of 2014 compared to $19.6 million in the third quarter of 2013. The decline in selling, general and administrative expenses in the third quarter of 2014 was due to the legal reserve of $2.3 million, recorded in the third quarter of 2013, pertaining to litigation regarding a traffic accident. The impact of the legal reserve was largely offset by higher personnel costs to support operations and higher stock compensation costs in the third quarter of 2014. As a percentage of revenues, selling, general and administrative expenses decreased to 7.8 percent for the third quarter of 2014 from 8.4 percent for the third quarter of 2013. The legal reserve represented 1.0 percent of revenues in the third quarter of 2013.

For the third quarter of 2014, net income was $8.4 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, compared to $8.3 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, for the same period of 2013. Without the legal reserve discussed above, third-quarter 2013 net income would have been $9.8 million, or $0.45 per diluted share. Third-quarter 2014 EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $21.9 million, or 8.8 percent of revenues, compared to $20.4 million, or 8.8 percent of revenues, in the third quarter of 2013. Excluding the legal reserve, third-quarter 2013 EBITDA was $22.7 million or 9.8 percent of third-quarter 2013 revenues.

First Nine-Months Results

MYR reported revenues of $693.0 million for the first nine months of 2014, an increase of $44.9 million, or 6.9 percent, compared to the first nine months of 2013. Specifically, the T&D segment reported revenues of $508.4 million, a decrease of $13.3 million, or 2.6 percent, from the first nine months of 2013. Material and subcontractor costs in our T&D segment comprised approximately 27 percent of total contract costs in the first nine months of 2014, compared to approximately 26 percent in the first nine months of 2013. The C&I segment reported first nine-months 2014 revenues of $184.6 million, an increase of $58.2 million, or 46.0 percent, over the first nine months of 2013. The increase in C&I revenues was due to increased activity in most of our service offerings as well as improved market conditions in Colorado and Arizona.

Consolidated gross profit decreased to $90.3 million, or 13.0 percent of revenues, in the first nine months of 2014, compared to $91.0 million, or 14.0 percent of revenues, in the first nine months of 2013. The year-over-year decline in gross profit and gross margin was primarily due to lower equipment utilization, particularly large specialty transmission equipment as several large transmission projects were substantially complete or nearing completion, as well as higher equipment repairs and maintenance costs. Gross margin in the first nine months of 2014 and 2013 benefited by approximately 1.7 percent and 0.8 percent, respectively, from improved contract margins on several transmission projects due to cost efficiencies, additional work and effective contract management.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $54.3 million in the first nine months of 2014 compared to $51.7 million in the first nine months of 2013. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses for the first nine months of 2014 as compared to the first nine months of 2013 was primarily due to higher personnel costs to support operations and higher stock compensation costs. Additionally, the first nine months of 2013 were impacted by the legal reserve of $2.3 million, recorded in the third quarter of 2013. As a percentage of revenues, selling, general and administrative expenses decreased to 7.8 percent for the first nine months of 2014 from 8.0 percent for the first nine months of 2013. The legal reserve represented 0.4 percent of revenues in the first nine months of 2013.

For the first nine months of 2014, net income was $22.4 million, or $1.03 per diluted share, compared to $24.7 million, or $1.14 per diluted share, for the same period of 2013. Without the legal reserve, first nine-months 2013 net income would have been $26.2 million, or $1.21 per diluted share. First nine-months 2014 EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $60.9 million, or 8.8 percent of revenues, compared to $61.3 million, or 9.5 percent of revenues, in the first nine months of 2013. Excluding the legal reserve, first nine-months 2013 EBITDA was $63.6 million or 9.8 percent of 2013 revenues.

Backlog

As of September 30, 2014, MYR's backlog was $409.0 million, consisting of $289.3 million in the T&D segment and $119.7 million in the C&I segment. Total backlog at September 30, 2014 was $11.1 million higher compared to the $397.9 million reported at June 30, 2014. T&D backlog at September 30, 2014 increased $23.6 million, or 8.9 percent from June 30, 2014, while C&I backlog decreased $12.5 million, or 9.4 percent, over the same period. Total backlog at September 30, 2014 decreased $35.0 million, or 7.9 percent, from the $444.0 million reported at September 30, 2013.

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) 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 leverage 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) The Company also computed 2013 EBITDA Excluding Legal Reserve for the periods presented, which is a non-GAAP measure.
