McGrath RentCorp Announces Results for Fourth Quarter 2014

Rental revenues increase 8%

Net income up 18%

EPS increases 18% to $0.53 for the quarter

Company announces 2% dividend increase; 23rd consecutive year increase

LIVERMORE, Calif., Feb. 26, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- McGrath RentCorp (Nasdaq:MGRC) (the "Company"), a diversified business to business rental company, today announced total revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2014 of $111.8 million, an increase of 18%, compared to $94.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. The Company reported net income of $13.9 million, or $0.53 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2014, compared to net income of $11.8 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2014 were $408.1 million, compared to $379.5 million in 2013. Rental revenues increased 5% to $269.6 million in 2014, compared to $255.8 million in 2013. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2014 increased 5% to $45.7 million, compared to net income of $43.4 million in the prior year. Diluted earnings per share increased 5% to $1.75 in 2014 from $1.67 in 2013.

The Company's effective tax for the fourth quarter 2014 was 42.7% compared to 39.2% in the fourth quarter 2013. This increase was driven by the full year 2014 effective tax rate rising to 40.3% as compared to 39.2% for 2013, which increased the provision for income taxes in 2014 by $0.8 million and reduced earnings by $0.03 per diluted share in the fourth quarter results. The increased effective tax rate in 2014 was primarily a result of higher business levels in states with higher tax rates, including the continuing recovery of the Company's modular business, and growth of its tank and box rental business, in California, and the resulting re-pricing of deferred tax liabilities. The Company estimates an effective tax rate of 39.5% for calendar year 2015.

The Company also announced that the board of directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.25 per share for the quarter ending March 31, 2015, an increase of 2% over the prior year period. On an annualized basis, the 2015 dividend represents a 3.2% yield, based on the February 25, 2015 closing stock price. The cash dividend will be payable on April 30, 2015 to all shareholders of record on April 16, 2015.

Dennis Kakures, President and CEO of McGrath RentCorp, made the following comments regarding these results and future expectations:

"Our fourth quarter results reflect continued momentum in growing top line Company-wide rental revenues and favorable rental revenue gross margin expansion. This is the nineteenth consecutive year over year quarterly rental revenue increase and is reflective of the quality of the mix of McGrath RentCorp's portfolio of rental businesses. Supported by strong year over year growth in rental revenues and equipment utilization by the Company's modular building rental division, Company-wide gross margin on rental revenues for the quarter expanded to 56% from 54% a year ago, and from 52% sequentially from the third quarter of 2014.

Modular division-wide rental revenues for the quarter increased $4.7 million, or 21%, to $26.8 million from a year ago. This is the seventh consecutive year over year quarterly rental revenue increase. During the fourth quarter, we experienced a 3% increase in division-wide year over year first month's rental revenue bookings for modular buildings and a 33% increase for all of 2014 over 2013. Fourth quarter 2014 modular division average and ending utilization reached 74.9% and 75.0%, respectively, an increase from 70.5% and 70.7% a year ago. Modular division EBIT for the quarter increased to $8.9 million, or by 51%, from the same period a year ago. This strong increase in profit was driven primarily by higher rental revenues and rental revenue margin expansion. Gross margin on rental revenues increased to 57% for the quarter from 52% a year ago. For the quarter, the modular division also benefited from higher profit on equipment sales and rental related services, partly offset by higher SG&A expenses.

Rental revenues at Adler Tank Rentals, our liquid and solid containment tank and box division, increased $1.7 million, or 9%, to $19.5 million from $17.8 million a year ago. Only approximately 14% of total Adler, or 4% of total Company, rental revenues for the fourth quarter 2014 were derived from upstream (wellhead) oil related projects. Although our exposure to upstream oil related projects is limited; over the next few months, we are cautious of any potential related negative impact to both midstream and downstream vertical markets. Average utilization was 65.1% during the fourth quarter of 2014, up from 60.8% a year ago. Ending utilization for the quarter was 63.9% compared to 57.7% a year ago. Further, fourth quarter average equipment on rent reached $194.2 million, a 16% increase over the same period a year ago. During the first half of 2014, we experienced project delays that have contributed to the higher utilization levels over the last four months of the year. Original cost of total rental equipment increased to $303.3 million at the end of the fourth quarter 2014, up less than 7% from $284.0 million at the end of 2013, and up less than 2% during the second half of the year. We are selectively purchasing boxes and specialty tank products primarily to support our newest markets and longer term contracts with well-established customers. Income from operations for the quarter increased $1.1 million, or 21%, to $6.6 million from $5.5 million a year ago.

Rental Revenues for TRS-RenTelco, our electronics division, declined by $0.8 million, or 3%, to $25.4 million for the quarter from $26.2 million a year ago. Although full-year first month's rental bookings were 2% higher for 2014 over 2013, first month's rental returns were up 3%. The combination of relatively flat net first month's rental booking growth, coupled with shorter average rental terms in 2014 compared to 2013, drove both the quarterly year over year and annual declines in rental revenues of 3%. Income from operations for the quarter declined by $0.4 million, or 4%, from the same period in 2013. We believe the increased churn of rental equipment was chiefly driven by a larger mix of communications versus general-purpose test equipment rental business in 2014 compared to 2013. Communications test equipment rentals typically have shorter rental terms than general-purpose test equipment. Average utilization was 63.3% for the fourth quarter, compared to 61.2% for the same period in 2013. Period ending utilization for the fourth quarter was 59.8% compared to 58.2% a year ago.

Mobile Modular Portable Storage continued to make good progress during the quarter, as it has throughout 2014, in building its customer following, increasing booking levels and growing rental revenues over 2013. Rental revenues for the fourth quarter and for the full year 2014 grew by 42% and 41%, respectively. Individual branch, as well as overall business segment, profitability is continuing to grow. We successfully entered the Chicago and Charlotte markets during 2014 and are targeting further regional expansion during 2015. We are on track towards building a meaningful sized storage container rental business with attractive operating metrics.

As we turn the corner into 2015, the Company's historically most profitable modular building rental business has significant momentum. The California market is only in the early stages of recovery, especially Southern California. As our modular rental business in the Golden State struggled from the onset of the Great Recession through 2013, we were able to build a very significant modular business in both Texas and in the Mid-Atlantic, as well as see our Florida business improve markedly. Our electronics business is an industry leader with very strong operating profitability metrics; however, it is not immune from periodic high-tech, aerospace & defense or communications sector softness. Our liquid and solid containment rental business is a national player today with solid earnings and significant long-term growth potential. Despite Adler's success over the past few years at greater diversification of its rental revenue mix into vertical markets outside of upstream E&P projects, the recent steep decline in the price of oil creates uncertainty going forward. This uncertainty is not only related to wellhead opportunities, but also to both midstream and downstream business levels due to reductions in capital spending as energy companies look to manage their reduced cash flows. Lastly, our portable storage rental business is growing favorably in rental revenues, earnings and geographic footprint. We are looking forward to continuing to turn the flywheel daily in building each of these enterprises. As we begin the year, our guidance range of $1.75 to $1.95 per diluted share for full-year 2015 is broad, in particular, due to the uncertainties with both our electronics, and tank and box rental businesses.

Last, the Company has just declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.25 per share, for the quarter ending March 31, 2015, an increase of 2% over the prior year period. This marks the 23rd consecutive year in which McGrath RentCorp has raised its dividend. On an annualized basis, this dividend increase represents a 3.2% yield, based on yesterday's closing stock price. We are very pleased to continue our practice of providing a quarterly return on investment to our shareholders."

All comparisons presented below are for the quarter ended December 31, 2014 to the quarter ended December 31, 2013 unless otherwise indicated.

MOBILE MODULAR

For the fourth quarter of 2014, the Company's Mobile Modular division reported a $3.0 million increase in income from operations, or 51%, to $8.9 million. Rental revenues increased 21% to $26.8 million and other direct costs decreased 4% to $7.2 million, which resulted in an increase in gross profit on rental revenues of 32% to $15.2 million. Rental related services revenues increased 24% to $9.8 million, with gross profit on rental related services revenues increasing 20% to $2.7 million. Sales revenues increased 77% to $7.7 million, with gross profit on sales revenues increasing 30% to $2.1 million. Gross margin on sales revenues decreased to 27% from 37%, primarily due to lower margins on new and used equipment sales in the fourth quarter of 2014. Selling and administrative expenses increased 17% to $11.3 million, primarily due to increased employee headcount, salaries and benefit costs.

TRS-RENTELCO

For the fourth quarter of 2014, the Company's TRS-RenTelco division reported a $0.4 million decrease in income from operations, or 4%, to $10.4 million. Rental revenues decreased 3% to $25.4 million. The decrease in rental revenues together with the an increase of 10% in other direct costs to $3.2 million, partly offset by a 2% decrease in depreciation expense to $10.2 million, resulted in a decrease in gross profit on rental revenues of 7% to $11.9 million. Sales revenues decreased 8% to $7.2 million. Gross profit on sales increased 2% to $3.8 million, with gross margin percentage increasing to 53% from 47%, primarily due to higher margins on used equipment sales in the fourth quarter of 2014. Selling and administrative expenses decreased 8% to $5.9 million, primarily due to decreased marketing and administrative costs.

ADLER TANKS

For the fourth quarter of 2014, the Company's Adler Tanks division reported a $1.1 million increase in income from operations, or 21%, to $6.6 million. Rental revenues increased 9% to $19.5 million, other direct costs decreased 5% to $2.9 million and depreciation expense increased 8% to $3.9 million, which resulted in an increase in gross profit on rental revenues of 14% to $12.7 million. Rental related services revenues increased 37% to $7.0 million, with gross profit on rental related services increasing 42% to $1.0 million. Selling and administrative expenses increased 15% to $7.1 million, primarily due to increased employee headcount, salaries and benefit costs.

Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP measures

To supplement the Company's financial data presented on a basis consistent with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), the Company presents "Adjusted EBITDA", which is defined by the Company as net income before interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation, amortization and share-based compensation. The Company presents Adjusted EBITDA as a financial measure as management believes it provides useful information to investors regarding the Company's liquidity and financial condition and because management, as well as the Company's lenders, use this measure in evaluating the performance of the Company.

Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as a supplement to GAAP measures to further evaluate the Company's period-to-period operating performance, compliance with financial covenants in the Company's revolving lines of credit and senior notes and the Company's ability to meet future capital expenditure and working capital requirements. Management believes the exclusion of non-cash charges, including share-based compensation, is useful in measuring the Company's cash available for operations and performance of the Company. Because management finds Adjusted EBITDA useful, the Company believes its investors will also find Adjusted EBITDA useful in evaluating the Company's performance.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, cash flows, or other consolidated income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP or as a measure of the Company's profitability or liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA is not in accordance with or an alternative for GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Unlike EBITDA, which may be used by other companies or investors, Adjusted EBITDA does not include share-based compensation charges. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is of limited use in that it does not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and does not accurately reflect real cash flow. In addition, other companies may not use Adjusted EBITDA or may use other non-GAAP measures, limiting the usefulness of Adjusted EBITDA for purposes of comparison. The Company's presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that the Company will not incur expenses that are the same as or similar to the adjustments in this presentation. Therefore, Adjusted EBITDA should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. The Company compensates for the limitations of Adjusted EBITDA by relying upon GAAP results to gain a complete picture of the Company's performance. Because Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure as defined by the SEC, the Company includes in the tables below reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.
