Management Comments

Bill Koertner, MYR's President and CEO said, "The second quarter of 2015 was highlighted by higher revenues, gross profit, EBITDA, net income and diluted EPS. During the quarter we also acquired substantially all of the assets of E.S. Boulos, one of New England's largest and most experienced electrical contractors, which enhances our T&D presence in the northeast U.S while expanding our C&I presence outside of our existing markets. We also executed our first contract to perform construction services in Canada." Mr. Koertner continued, "Our balance sheet remains strong with $46.9 million of cash and borrowing capacity of $155.7 million at the end of the second quarter. We believe that our management and craft employees, investment in specialty equipment, existing customer relationships, commitment to safety, strong financial position and focused approach should enable us to achieve long-term growth, both organically and through additional acquisitions, in our T&D and C&I segments."

Second-Quarter Results

MYR reported second-quarter 2015 revenues of $276.5 million, an increase of $47.6 million, or 20.8 percent, compared to second-quarter 2014. Specifically, the Transmission and Distribution (T&D) segment reported revenues of $200.6 million, an increase of $34.2 million, or 20.6 percent, from the second quarter of 2014, primarily due to an increase in the number of jobs of all sizes. Material and subcontractor costs in our T&D segment comprised approximately 27 percent of total contract costs in the second quarter of 2015, compared to approximately 25 percent in the second quarter of 2014. The Commercial and Industrial (C&I) segment reported second-quarter 2015 revenues of $75.9 million, an increase of $13.4 million, or 21.5 percent, over second-quarter 2014, due primarily to the acquisition of E.S. Boulos Company ("ESB").

Consolidated gross profit increased to $31.7 million in the second quarter of 2015, compared to $30.5 million in the second quarter of 2014. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to the higher revenues and contract performance incentives. Gross margin decreased to 11.5 percent for the second quarter of 2015 from 13.3 percent for the second quarter of 2014, primarily due to the year-over-year change in estimates of gross profit on certain T&D projects. For the second quarter of 2015, contract performance incentives provided a gross margin benefit of approximately 1.0 percent. For the second quarter of 2014, cost efficiencies, additional work and effective contract management resulted in improved contract margins on several transmission projects, and provided a gross margin benefit of approximately 1.9 percent. The remainder of the variance was primarily due to several underperforming projects in the second quarter of 2015.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $18.9 million in the second quarter of 2015 compared to $18.1 million in the second quarter of 2014. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2015 was due primarily to higher personnel costs to support operations and ESB acquisition costs compared to the second quarter of 2014. As a percentage of revenues, selling, general and administrative expenses decreased to 6.9 percent for the second quarter of 2015 from 7.9 percent for the second quarter of 2014.

For the second quarter of 2015, net income was $8.1 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, compared to $7.7 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, for the same period of 2014. Second-quarter 2015 EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $22.3 million, or 8.1 percent of revenues, compared to $20.7 million, or 9.1 percent of revenues, in the second quarter of 2014.

First-Half Results

MYR reported first-half 2015 revenues of $520.6 million, an increase of $76.1 million, or 17.1 percent, compared to first-half 2014. Specifically, the T&D segment reported revenues of $389.8 million, an increase of $61.4 million, or 18.7 percent, from the first half of 2014, primarily due to an increase in the number of jobs of all sizes. Material and subcontractor costs in our T&D segment comprised approximately 25 percent of total contract costs in the first half of 2015, compared to approximately 22 percent in the first half of 2014. The C&I segment reported first-half 2015 revenues of $130.8 million, an increase of $14.7 million, or 12.7 percent, over first-half 2014, due primarily to the acquisition of ESB.

Consolidated gross profit increased to $61.1 million, in the first half of 2015, compared to $57.6 million, in the first half of 2014. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to the higher revenues. Gross margin decreased to 11.7 percent for the first half of 2015 from 13.0 percent for the first half of 2014, primarily due to the year-over-year change in estimates of gross profit on certain projects. For the first half of 2015, contract performance incentives, cost efficiencies, additional work and effective contract management resulted in improved contract margins on several projects, primarily transmission projects, and provided a gross margin benefit of 1.1 percent. For the first half of 2014, cost efficiencies, additional work and effective contract management resulted in improved contract margins on several transmission projects, and provided a gross margin benefit of 2.2 percent.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $37.5 million in the first half of 2015 compared to $35.0 million in the first half of 2014. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses in the first half of 2015 was due primarily to higher personnel costs to support operations, ESB acquisition costs and higher stock compensation costs compared to the first half of 2014. As a percentage of revenues, selling, general and administrative expenses decreased to 7.2 percent for the first half of 2015 from 7.9 percent for the first half of 2014.

For the first half of 2015, net income was $15.2 million, or $0.72 per diluted share, compared to $14.0 million, or $0.64 per diluted share, for the same period of 2014. First-half 2015 EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $42.9 million, or 8.2 percent of revenues, compared to $39.0 million, or 8.8 percent of revenues, in the first half of 2014.

Share Repurchase Program

On July 30, 2015, MYR's board of directors approved an amended share repurchase program, increasing the amount of the program from $25.0 million to $42.5 million, and extending the term through August 31, 2016. The amendment increases the availability to purchase shares under the program to $25.0 million. MYR has spent approximately $17.5 million to purchase almost 724 thousand shares over the life of this program. In the first six months of 2015, MYR purchased 72,706 shares of its common stock, for approximately $1.8 million, under the share repurchase program.

Acquisition of E.S. Boulos Company and Canada Update

On April 13, 2015, MYR acquired substantially all of the assets of ESB, one of New England's largest and most experienced electrical contractors with over 95 years in operation, from a subsidiary of Eversource Energy. The purchase price was approximately $11.4 million, which was funded through our existing cash resources. ESB is headquartered in Westbrook, Maine, and offers construction services for the electric utility sector, including substation, transmission and distribution construction, as well as commercial and industrial electrical construction. ESB will continue to operate under its own name as part of the MYR Group family of companies. ESB's operations are included in the second-quarter 2015 consolidated T&D segment and C&I segment results.

In the second quarter of 2015, our Canadian subsidiary MYR Transmission Services Canada, Ltd. commenced work on its first contract to perform construction services in Canada. This T&D project is the Keewatinohk switchyard for Manitoba Hydro project and has a contract value of less than $40 million Canadian dollars.

Backlog

As of June 30, 2015, MYR's backlog was $410.7 million, consisting of $275.8 million in the T&D segment and $134.9 million in the C&I segment. Total backlog at June 30, 2015 was $12.3 million higher than the $398.4 million reported at March 31, 2015, due primarily to the acquisition of ESB. T&D backlog at June 30, 2015 increased $0.1 million, or 0.1 percent, from March 31, 2015, while C&I backlog increased $12.2 million, or 9.9 percent, over the same period. Total backlog at June 30, 2015 increased $12.8 million, or 3.2 percent, from the $397.9 million reported at June 30, 2014.

Balance Sheet

As of June 30, 2015, MYR had cash and cash equivalents of $46.9 million and $155.7 million of borrowing availability under its credit facility.

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 to equity 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) Invested capital is calculated by adding net debt (total debt less cash and marketable securities) to total stockholders' equity.
(13) Return on invested capital is calculated by dividing net income, less any dividends, by invested capital at the beginning of the period.
