Transcat Reports Revenue and Operating Income Growth for Fiscal 2015 Third Quarter

  • Service segment operating income tripled to $0.6 million on 9.4% revenue growth
  • Distribution segment sales down 2.9% amid competitive market conditions
  • Third quarter consolidated operating income grew 2.6% on 1.8% revenue growth

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Jan. 26, 2015 (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 third quarter ended December 27, 2014. Included in the reported results are those of Ulrich Metrology Inc., acquired on August 31, 2014.

Transcat achieved record third quarter revenue of $31.1 million, an increase of 1.8% over the prior-year period, driven by Service segment revenue growth of 9.4%. Distribution segment sales declined 2.9%.

Lee D. Rudow, President and CEO, commented, "Our Service segment delivered another excellent quarter of strong top-line growth and produced 38% operating leverage. We are particularly pleased with the early performance of our recent Ulrich acquisition. Distribution segment operating income continues to be negatively impacted by lower year-over-year vendor rebates; nonetheless, the segment continues to generate significant cash flow to support our growth strategy. Overall, we continue to execute our long-term growth strategy to expand our calibration and related services business." Note that operating leverage is defined as the year-over-year change in Service segment operating income divided by the year-over-year change in Service revenue.

Third quarter consolidated gross profit declined $0.1 million to $7.0 million. A $0.4 million increase in Service segment gross profit was offset by a $0.5 million reduction in Distribution segment gross profit related to lower vendor rebates. Total operating expenses were down $0.2 million, or 3.1%, primarily from lower performance-based compensation expense. Consolidated operating income increased to $1.4 million, a 2.6% improvement over the prior fiscal year period.

Third quarter net income was $0.8 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, consistent with the prior fiscal year period. Adjusted EBITDA increased 5.8% to $2.4 million, over the same quarter of the prior fiscal year period. See Note 1 on page 4 for a description of this non-GAAP financial measure and page 9 for the Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation table.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2015 Review (Results are compared with fiscal 2014's third quarter)

Service Segment Operating Margin Expands on Strong Revenue Growth

The Service segment represents the Company's accredited calibration and compliance services business (41% of total revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2015)

  • Service segment revenue increased 9.4%, or $1.1 million, to a record third quarter revenue of $12.6 million. The year-over-year increase was driven by a combination of organic and acquisition-related growth.
  • Service segment gross profit was $3.1 million, a 14.9%, or $0.4 million improvement. Gross margin for the segment improved 110 basis points to 24.5%.
  • Segment operating expenses were $2.5 million, consistent with the third quarter of fiscal 2014.
  • Third quarter segment operating income tripled to $0.6 million over the prior fiscal year period, while segment operating margin expanded 320 basis points to 4.5%.
  • Service segment contribution margin grew 49.3% to $1.5 million, up from $1.0 million in the prior fiscal year period. Service segment Adjusted EBITDA increased 68.8%, or $0.5 million to $1.2 million. As a percentage of Service segment revenue, Adjusted EBITDA was 9.9%, a 350 basis point expansion. See Note 1 on page 4 for descriptions of these non-GAAP financial measures and pages 9 and 10 for the Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation table and the contribution margin calculation in the Additional Information – Business Segment Data table.

Distribution Segment Continues Strong Cash Generation

The Distribution segment represents the Company's distribution of professional grade handheld test, measurement and control instrumentation business (59% of total revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2015)

  • Distribution sales declined $0.5 million, or 2.9%, to $18.4 million, as increased volume did not fully offset higher discounting.
  • Distribution segment gross profit was $3.9 million, down $0.5 million. Gross margin was 21.2% compared with 23.4% in the prior fiscal year period. Lower year-over-year vendor rebates accounted for 190 basis points of the 220 basis point decline. Vendor rebates tend to fluctuate as target levels are typically established by some vendors using growth rates based on prior-year results. Competitive pricing strategies, utilized to maintain market share, also negatively impacted segment gross margin.
  • Cost discipline and reduced expenses related to performance-based compensation helped to partially offset the year-over-year decline in segment gross profit, resulting in segment operating income of $0.8 million, a $0.4 million decline from the comparable period in fiscal 2014.
  • Contribution margin for the Distribution segment was $1.9 million compared with $2.5 million in the prior fiscal year period. Distribution segment Adjusted EBITDA was $1.1 million, down $0.4 million. See Note 1 on page 4 for descriptions of these non-GAAP financial measures and pages 9 and 10 for the Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation table and contribution margin calculation in the Additional Information – Business Segment Data table.

Nine-Month Fiscal 2015 Review (Results are compared with fiscal 2014's nine-month period, except where indicated)

Total revenue increased 3.6%, or $3.2 million, to $91.3 million. Consolidated gross profit was $20.6 million, down $0.6 million, or 2.8%. Gross margin declined 140 basis points to 22.6%, primarily due to $1.4 million of lower Distribution segment vendor rebates, a 150 basis point negative impact to gross margin.

Service Segment:

  • Revenue increased 7.5% to $37.3 million, driven by organic and acquisition-related growth. On a trailing twelve-month basis, Service segment revenue was $50.8 million, an increase of 8.2% when compared with 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 improved 20 basis points to 24.9%. On a trailing twelve-month basis, Service segment gross margin was up 10 basis points to 26.6%.

Distribution Segment:

  • Sales increased 1.1% to $53.9 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2015.
  • Year-to-date Distribution segment gross margin decreased 270 basis points to 20.9% primarily due to reduced vendor rebates.

Consolidated operating expenses decreased 2.6%, or $0.5 million, to $16.9 million. As a percentage of total revenue, operating expenses were 18.6%, an improvement over 19.7% in fiscal 2014's nine-month period. Operating income was down 3.3%, or $0.1 million, to $3.7 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2015. Net income was $2.1 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, compared with $2.3 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, in the prior fiscal year period.

Adjusted EBITDA was $6.3 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2015, consistent with the first nine months of 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

As of December 27, 2014, the Company had $12.7 million in availability under its secured revolving credit facility. The Ulrich Metrology acquisition used $6.7 million of available borrowings for acquisitions, leaving $8.3 million available for potential acquisitions for the remainder of fiscal 2015.

Capital expenditures in the first nine months of fiscal 2015 were $2.7 million, up $1.6 million, 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 continue to execute our growth strategy and believe we can capitalize on the many opportunities, both organic and acquisition, that exist in the calibration and related services space. The ongoing capability enhancements we have made within the Service segment continue to drive results and we expect to see augmented growth from the Ulrich acquisition through the remainder of fiscal 2015 and beyond.

"We have aligned resources with strategic investments that we believe will deliver long-lasting results. Investments in our innovative C3 system, as well as the launch of our new e-commerce platform, are two initiatives that have begun to drive new business and, over the long-term, are expected to be solid contributors to our growth. We also recently relocated our lab in the Los Angeles market to an area rich with healthcare companies, while significantly improving that lab's capacity and capability.

"While the Distribution business will continue to be very competitive and vendor rebates will negatively impact segment gross margin in the fourth quarter, we do not expect further vendor rebate decline in the next 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, other income and expenses, 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.
