Management Comments

Bill Koertner, MYR’s President and CEO, said, “The third quarter was a challenging three months for MYR. While our revenue was higher, our gross margin was down due primarily to heightened competition in many of our markets and a few underperforming jobs due to various productivity issues. Also, much of our revenue this quarter resulted from small and mid-sized jobs with shorter durations which tend to lead to lower overall equipment utilization and lower labor productivity because the jobs are often finished before our crews fully reach their productive rhythm. Continuity of work remains key to our success.” Mr. Koertner continued, “We are pleased that our investment to expand into some new geographic markets is beginning to show some positive results. We plan to remain disciplined with our approach both as we grow organically and consider acquisitions in order to capitalize on the strength of our team, customer relationships, specialty equipment resources, strong balance sheet, safety record and customer service reputation.”

Third-Quarter Results

MYR reported third-quarter 2015 revenues of $269.9 million, an increase of $21.4 million, or 8.6 percent, compared to third-quarter 2014. Specifically, the Transmission and Distribution (T&D) segment reported revenues of $203.9 million, an increase of $23.9 million, or 13.3 percent, from the third quarter of 2014, primarily due to higher revenues from jobs of all sizes. Material and subcontractor costs in our T&D segment comprised approximately 25 percent of total contract costs in the third quarter of 2015, compared to approximately 34 percent in the third quarter of 2014. The Commercial and Industrial (C&I) segment reported third-quarter 2015 revenues of $66.0 million, a decrease of $2.5 million, or 3.7 percent, from third-quarter 2014, due primarily to lower revenue from large jobs, partially offset by the acquisition of E.S. Boulos Company (“ESB”).

Consolidated gross profit decreased to $28.6 million in the third quarter of 2015, compared to $32.7 million in the third quarter of 2014. The decrease in gross profit was primarily due to lower gross margins partially offset by increased revenues. Gross margin decreased to 10.6 percent for the third quarter of 2015 from 13.2 percent for the third quarter of 2014. The year-over-year decline in gross margin was primarily due to lower bid margins caused by increased competition in many of our markets, an increase in shorter duration jobs (which affects fleet utilization, labor productivity and mobilization and demobilization costs) and certain underperforming jobs. Underperforming jobs include labor productivity below previous estimates as a result of excessive labor turnover and rework on certain jobs. Changes in estimates of gross profit on certain projects resulted in a gross margin decrease of 0.5 percent compared to an increase of 1.0 percent for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased to $19.0 million in the third quarter of 2015 compared to $19.3 million in the third quarter of 2014. The decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses in the third quarter of 2015 was due to lower bonus and profit sharing costs, partially offset by higher personnel costs to support operations compared to the third quarter of 2014. As a percentage of revenues, selling, general and administrative expenses decreased to 7.0 percent for the third quarter of 2015 from 7.8 percent for the third quarter of 2014.

For the third quarter of 2015, net income was $6.2 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared to $8.4 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, for the same period of 2014. Third-quarter 2015 EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $20.1 million, or 7.4 percent of revenues, compared to $21.9 million, or 8.8 percent of revenues, in the third quarter of 2014.

First Nine-Months

MYR reported first nine-months 2015 revenues of $790.5 million, an increase of $97.5 million, or 14.1 percent, compared to the first nine months of 2014. Specifically, the T&D segment reported revenues of $593.7 million, an increase of $85.3 million, or 16.8 percent, from the first nine months of 2014, primarily due to an increase in the number of jobs of all sizes. The C&I segment reported first nine-months 2015 revenues of $196.8 million, an increase of $12.2 million, or 6.6 percent, over the first nine months of 2014, due primarily to the acquisition of ESB.

Consolidated gross profit decreased to $89.7 million, in the first nine months of 2015, compared to $90.3 million, a decrease of $0.6 million or 0.7 percent compared to the first nine months of 2014. The decrease in gross profit was primarily due to lower gross margin partially offset by higher revenues. Gross margin decreased to 11.4 percent for the first nine months of 2015 from 13.0 percent for the first nine months of 2014. The year-over-year decline in gross margin was primarily due to lower bid margins caused by increased competition in many of our markets, an increase in the number of shorter duration projects (which affects fleet utilization, labor productivity and mobilization and demobilization costs) and certain underperforming jobs. Underperforming jobs include labor productivity below previous estimates as a result of excessive labor turnover and rework on certain jobs. Changes in estimates of gross profit on certain projects resulted in gross margin increases of 0.5 percent and 1.7 percent for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $56.5 million in the first nine months of 2015 compared to $54.3 million in the first nine months of 2014. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses in the first nine months of 2015 was due primarily to higher personnel costs to support operations and ESB acquisition costs, partially offset by lower bonus and profit sharing costs, compared to the first nine months of 2014. As a percentage of revenues, selling, general and administrative expenses decreased to 7.2 percent for the first nine months of 2015 from 7.8 percent for the first nine months of 2014.

For the first nine months of 2015, net income was $21.4 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, compared to $22.4 million, or $1.03 per diluted share, for the same period of 2014. First nine-months 2015 EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $62.9 million, or 8.0 percent of revenues, compared to $60.9 million, or 8.8 percent of revenues, in the first nine months 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. MYR has spent approximately $24.4 million to purchase approximately 978 thousand shares over the life of this program. In the first nine months of 2015, MYR purchased 327,232 shares of its common stock, for approximately $8.7 million, under the share repurchase program. As of September 30, 2015 we had $18.1 million of availability to purchase shares under the program.

Backlog

As of September 30, 2015, MYR's backlog was $425.1 million, consisting of $295.6 million in the T&D segment and $129.5 million in the C&I segment. Total backlog at September 30, 2015 was $14.4 million higher than the $410.7 million reported at June 30, 2015. T&D backlog at September 30, 2015 increased $19.8 million, or 7.2 percent, from June 30, 2015, while C&I backlog decreased $5.4 million, or 4.0 percent, over the same period. Total backlog at September 30, 2015 increased $16.1 million, or 3.9 percent, from the $409.0 million reported at September 30, 2014.

Balance Sheet

As of September 30, 2015, MYR had cash and cash equivalents of $30.4 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.
