StoneMor Partners L.P. Announces First Quarter 2015 Financial Results

LEVITTOWN, Pa., May 8, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- StoneMor Partners L.P. (NYSE:STON) (“StoneMor”) announced its results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2015.

Larry Miller, StoneMor’s President and CEO commented, “StoneMor’s first quarter included strong revenue growth despite the severe winter weather in the northeast as we see increasing contributions from the acquisitions we made in 2014. GAAP revenues increased 4.7% to $67.4 million in the quarter and production-based revenues increased 10.3% to $94.5 million. Driving the growth in production-based revenues were solid increases in pre-need cemetery revenues, which rose $5.9 million or 19.7%, at-need cemetery revenues which increased $6.1 million or 30.9% and funeral home revenues which increased $4.2 million or 31.4%.

“Our adjusted operating profits (non-GAAP) for the first quarter were $16.0 million versus $22.0 million in the prior year period. Distributable free cash flow (non-GAAP) for the first quarter was $15.6 million versus $22.1 million in the prior year period. The quarterly declines in both adjusted operating profits and distributable free cash flow were both largely the result of two items. First, a land sale in the 2014 first quarter added $4.5 million to results and second, income (non-GAAP) from trusts in the 2014 first quarter was $3.6 million greater than the current quarter. Land sales are by their nature unpredictable, so the impact on results will vary. At the same time, investment income from trusts varies widely from one quarter to the next and has no corresponding cost of sales. As a result, its impact can be meaningful. Absent the effect of these variable items, adjusted operating income for the 2015 first quarter increased by $2.1 million, or 15.7%.”

Tim Yost, Chief Financial Officer added, “We generated an operating loss (GAAP) for the three months ended March 31, 2015 of $3.4 million compared to an operating profit of $5.3 million in the prior year period. The GAAP results were driven in large part by the land sale mentioned above as well as trust fund income (GAAP) in the 2014 first quarter which was $1.4 million greater than the current quarter. In addition, 2015 first quarter results were impacted by fixed costs associated with the significant number of properties acquired in 2014 that were not present for 2014 first quarter results and are not deferred for GAAP purposes.”

“Looking behind the impact of the irregular items,” continued Miller, “we see strong continued performance from production-based revenues, adjusted operating profit and distributable free cash flow. We look forward to the further integration of our acquired properties and the impact that continued growth in pre-need sales will have on cash flow and profitability in the future.”

Financial Highlights

  • Revenues (GAAP) for the three months ended March 31, 2015 were $67.4 million compared to $64.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, a 4.7% increase.


  • Production-based revenues (non-GAAP) for the three months ended March 31, 2015 were $94.5 million compared to $85.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, a 10.3% increase.
  • Operating loss (GAAP) for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $3.4 million compared to an operating profit of $5.3 million in the prior year period. The decline was due in part to the land sale and investment income from trusts in the first quarter of 2014, as well as the increased fixed costs in the first quarter of 2015 associated with the significantly greater number of properties mentioned above.

  • Adjusted operating profits (non-GAAP) for the three months ended March 31, 2015 were $16.0 million compared to $22.0 million in the same period last year, a decrease of $6.0 million. The comparison of adjusted operating profits was similarly impacted by the one-time land sale and higher investment trust income (non-GAAP) in the first quarter of 2014. Absent the impact of these items, adjusted operating income for the 2015 first quarter increased by $2.1 million, or 15.7%.

  • Cash flows (GAAP) provided by operations for the three month period ended March 31, 2015 were $5.8 million compared to $2.9 million used in operations in the prior year period.
  • Distributable free cash flow (non-GAAP) for the three-month period ended March 31, 2015 decreased to $15.6 million from $22.1 million for the same period last year. The decline was primarily driven by the 2014 land sale.

  • Backlog increased by $24.0 million to $567.3 million in the period ended March 31, 2015 from December 31, 2014 and by $69.6 million compared to the prior year period.

  • Cash, accounts receivable and merchandise trusts, net of merchandise liabilities reached $500.7 million at March 31, 2015.

  • Net loss (GAAP) for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $8.9 million, as compared to net income of $0.4 million in the prior-year period. The loss is largely attributable to the increased expenses associated with the ongoing integration of the properties acquired during 2014. As previously discussed, these costs are expensed as incurred while much of the offsetting revenue increases are deferred.


“The pace of our business and our expectations going forward also gave us the confidence, as previously announced, to raise our distribution for the first quarter to $0.64 per unit from $0.63, our fourth consecutive quarterly increase,” said Miller. “In addition, we remain confident in our intention to continue to increase distributions by $0.01 per quarter through the end of 2015.”

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP. However, management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures used in managing the business may provide investors with additional information regarding underlying trends and ongoing results on a comparable basis. Specifically, management believes that production-based revenues and adjusted operating profit allow the investor to gain insight into the current operating performance of the Company. Please see the section of this press release "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" to view the reconciliation tables. Non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company should not be considered as alternatives to GAAP financial measures, and you should not consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of the Company’s results as reported under U.S. GAAP.

Certain statements contained in this press release, including, but not limited to, information regarding the status and progress of our operating activities, the plans and objectives of our management, assumptions regarding our future performance and plans, and any financial guidance provided or guidance related to our future distributions are forward-looking statements.

Generally, the words “believe,” “may,” “will,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend (including, but not limited to our intent to maintain or increase our distributions),” “project,” “expect,” “predict” and similar expressions identify these forward-looking statements.

These forward-looking statements are made subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those stated or implied. Our major risk is related to uncertainties associated with the cash flow from our pre-need and at-need sales, our trusts, and financings, which may impact our ability to meet our financial projections, our ability to service our debt and pay distributions, and our ability to increase our distributions.

Our additional risks and uncertainties, include, but are not limited to, the following: uncertainties associated with future revenue and revenue growth; uncertainties associated with the integration or anticipated benefits of our recent acquisitions or any future acquisitions; our ability to complete and fund additional acquisitions; the effect of economic downturns; the impact of our significant leverage on our operating plans; the decline in the fair value of certain equity and debt securities held in our trusts; our ability to attract, train and retain an adequate number of sales people; uncertainties associated with the volume and timing of pre-need sales of cemetery services and products; increased use of cremation; changes in the death rate; changes in the political or regulatory environments, including potential changes in tax accounting and trusting policies; our ability to successfully implement a strategic plan relating to achieving operating improvements, strong cash flows and further deleveraging; our ability to successfully compete in the cemetery and funeral home industry; litigation or legal proceedings that could expose us to significant liabilities and damage our reputation; the effects of cyber security attacks due to our significant reliance on information technology; uncertainties relating to the financial condition of third-party insurance companies that fund our pre-need funeral contracts; and various other uncertainties associated with the death care industry and our operations in particular.

When considering forward-looking statements, you should keep in mind the risk factors and other cautionary statements set forth in our Annual Report on Form 10-K and our other reports filed with the SEC. Except as required under applicable law, we assume no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements made herein or any other forward-looking statements made by us, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Production Based Revenue

We present production based revenue because management believes it provides for a useful measure of both the value of contracts written and investment and other income generated during a given period and is a critical component of adjusted operating profit.

Production based revenue is a non-GAAP financial measure that may not be consistent with other similar non-GAAP financial measures presented by other publicly traded companies.

Adjusted Operating Profit

We present Adjusted Operating Profit because management believes it provides for a useful measure of economic value added by presenting an effective matching of the value of current and future revenue sources generated within a given period to the cost of producing such revenue and managing our day to day operations within that same period. It is a significant measure that we believe is an indicator of eventual profit generated within a given period of time.

Adjusted Operating Profit is a non-GAAP financial measure that may not be consistent with other similar non-GAAP financial measures presented by other publicly traded companies.

Adjusted Operating Cash Generated

We present adjusted operating cash generated revenue because management believes it provides for a useful measure of the amount of cash generated that is available to make capital expenditures and partner distributions once all cash flow timing issues have been settled.

Adjusted operating cash generated is a non-GAAP financial measure that may not be consistent with other similar non-GAAP financial measures presented by other publicly traded companies.

Distributable Free Cash Flow

We present Distributable Free Cash Flow because management believes this information is a useful adjunct to Net Cash Provided by (Used in) Operating Activities under GAAP. Distributable Free Cash Flow is a significant liquidity metric that we believe is an indicator of our ability to generate cash flow during any quarter at a level sufficient to pay the quarterly distribution to the holders of our common units and for other purposes, such as repaying debt and expanding through strategic investments.

Distributable Free Cash Flow is similar to quantitative standards of free cash flow used throughout the deathcare industry and to quantitative standards of distributable cash flow used throughout the investment community with respect to publicly traded partnerships, but is not intended to be a prediction of the future. However, our calculation of distributable free cash flow may not be consistent with calculations of free cash flow, distributable cash flow or other similarly titled measures of other companies. Distributable Free Cash Flow should not be used as a substitute for the GAAP measure of cash flows from operating, investing, or financing activities.

Production Based Partners’ Capital

We present production based partners’ capital as a means to provide better insight into the value that our activities contribute to the enterprise. Because a portion of our revenues and direct selling expenses are captured on our balance sheet until we deliver the underlying goods or services, we believe that by including these items in our view of partners’ capital, we gain better insight into the value creation.

Backlog

We define backlog as deferred cemetery revenues and investment income less deferred selling and obtaining costs. It does not include deferred unrealized gains and losses on merchandise trust assets.
