McGrath RentCorp Announces Results for First Quarter 2016

Rental revenues increase 2%
Net income down 4%
EPS increases 4% to $0.27 for the quarter

LIVERMORE, Calif., May 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- McGrath RentCorp (NASDAQ:MGRC) (the “Company”), a diversified business-to-business rental company, today announced total revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 of $93.7 million, an increase of 4%, compared to $90.2 million in the first quarter of 2015. The Company reported net income of $6.6 million, or $0.27 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2016, compared to net income of $6.8 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2015.

In March 2016, the Company secured a new line of credit with a syndicate of banks. This new line of credit replaced the Company’s prior $420.0 million line of credit. As a result, the remaining $0.5 million of prepaid debt issuance costs related to the prior line of credit were charged to interest expense during the three months ended March 31, 2016, which reduced net income by $0.3 million and earnings per diluted share by approximately $0.01.

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

“Our first quarter results were mixed. Our historically largest earnings engine and still recovering modular division largely offset significant weakness in our crude oil sensitive liquid and solid containment rental business, with our electronics division having flat year over year results.

Modular division-wide rental revenues for the quarter increased $4.7 million, or 18%, to $31.2 million from a year ago. This is the twelfth consecutive year over year quarterly rental revenue increase. During the first quarter, we experienced a 14% increase in division-wide year over year first month’s rental revenue bookings for modular buildings with a 31% increase in California and 2% outside of the state. Modular division average rental equipment utilization based on original acquisition cost for the quarter increased to 76.1% compared to 74.2% a year ago. This is our highest first quarter utilization level since the first quarter of 2009. Modular division EBIT, or income from operations, for the quarter increased to $8.2 million, or by 88%, from the same period a year ago. Gross margin on rental revenues increased to 53% for the quarter from 47% last year driven primarily by higher rental revenues with flat year over year building preparation costs. EBIT margin increased to 18% for the quarter compared to just 11% in 2015 primarily driven by improved rental metrics, including higher gross profit on rental related services, partially offset by higher SG&A expenses chiefly to support growth in modular division business activity levels.

Mobile Modular Portable Storage continued to make good progress during the first quarter in building its customer following, increasing booking levels and growing rental revenues from a year ago. First month’s rent booking levels and rental revenues for the first quarter grew by 21% and 29%, respectively, from the same period a year ago. We are working hard to make each of our portable storage operating geographies increasingly successful. We are on track towards building a meaningful sized storage container rental business with attractive operating metrics.

Rental revenues for TRS-RenTelco, our electronics division, declined by $1.2 million for the quarter, or by 5%, to $20.9 million from a year ago. The year over year reduction in rental revenues was driven primarily by lower communication test equipment business activity and a more competitive environment. In fact, communications test equipment rental revenues declined by approximately 14% for the quarter compared to the same period a year ago. General-purpose related test equipment rental revenues improved by approximately 5% year over year. Average equipment utilization was 59.6% for the first quarter, compared to 59.9% for the same period in 2015. Average rental rates declined for the quarter to 4.49% from 4.66% a year ago, primarily due to the business activity mix shift from communications to general-purpose test equipment as well as a more competitive communications test equipment marketplace. EBIT for the quarter was flat at $5.2 million as the 5% reduction in rental revenue was offset by lower rental equipment depreciation and SG&A expenses compared to a year ago. Our electronics management and sales teams have done an excellent job in a softer test equipment rental environment in selling lower utilized rental equipment to reduce depreciation expense as well as to hold costs down in other operating areas.

Rental revenues at Adler Tank Rentals, our liquid and solid containment tank and box division, declined by $2.5 million for the quarter, or 15%, to $14.4 million from a year ago. Average utilization and total original acquisition cost of rental equipment were 50.3% and $308 million, respectively, for the quarter compared to 61.1% and $300 million a year ago. First quarter average equipment on rent declined to $155 million from $184 million a year ago, and from $166 million during the fourth quarter of 2015. Average monthly rental rates were flat year over year; however, this was due to the change in the mix of utilized rental assets with lower rental rate tank assets decreasing and higher rental rate box inventory increasing. Without the decrease in utilization of tank assets, overall rental rates would have been lower year over year. The reductions in both utilization and rental rates from a year ago are directly related to lower crude oil prices and the significant decline in wellhead related drilling and completions activity. Upstream oil and natural gas rental revenue declined from 19% of total Adler rental revenues in the first quarter of 2015 to 11% for the same period in 2016. These dynamics have put increasing downward pressure on 21K multi-purpose tank utilization and rental rates in upstream, midstream and downstream energy sectors, as well as in other market verticals. EBIT for the quarter decreased $3.4 million, or 67%, to $1.7 million from a year ago. The higher percentage decrease in EBIT at 67% as compared to rental revenues at 15% was primarily a result of higher equipment depreciation and SG&A expenses as a percentage of rental revenues of 28% and 50%, respectively, from 23% and 41% a year ago. We remain very cautious in our outlook for our liquid and solid containment rental business for the foreseeable future as market forces drive a material reset of both the oil and natural gas industries.

We entered 2016 with many unknowns and forecasting challenges regarding the crude oil and natural gas industries’ evolving structural changes and their near-term impact to our liquid and solid containment rental business. Our first quarter results for Adler Tank Rentals are reflective of just how challenging an environment we are facing. On the positive side, our modular business is recovering nicely with a long runway of increasing earnings potential in front of it, including the very important California education market. We are also turning on a high-powered lens on return on invested capital (ROIC) for each of our businesses and should see benefits in 2017 and beyond (Please see my remarks on this topic in this year’s Letter to Shareholders). Our focus is to deploy less capital, and more selectively, for new rental assets over the next few years until we see sustainable higher ROIC levels.”

All comparisons presented below are for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 to the quarter ended March 31, 2015 unless otherwise indicated.

MOBILE MODULAR

For the first quarter of 2016, the Company’s Mobile Modular division reported a $3.8 million increase in income from operations, or 88%, to $8.2 million. Rental revenues increased 18% to $31.2 million, depreciation expense increased 12% to $5.1 million and other direct costs increased $0.1 million to $9.6 million, which resulted in an increase in gross profit on rental revenues of 34% to $16.5 million. Rental related services revenues increased 23% to $11.2 million, with gross profit on rental related services revenues increasing 38% to $3.2 million. Sales revenues decreased 19% to $2.6 million, with gross profit on sales revenues flat at $0.9 million, primarily due to lower used equipment sales in the first quarter of 2016. Selling and administrative expenses increased 10% to $12.5 million, primarily due to increased salaries and employee benefit costs and higher allocated corporate expenses.

TRS-RENTELCO

For the first quarter of 2016, the Company’s TRS-RenTelco division income from operations was flat at $5.2 million. Rental revenues decreased 5% to $20.9 million, depreciation expense decreased 8% to $9.4 million and other direct costs increased 7% to $3.6 million, which resulted in a decrease in gross profit on rental revenues of 8% to $7.9 million. Sales revenues increased 18% to $5.8 million. Gross profit on sales revenues increased 5% to $2.5 million, with gross margin percentage decreasing to 43% from 49%, primarily due to lower gross margins on used equipment sales in the first quarter of 2016. Selling and administrative expenses decreased 5% to $5.8 million, primarily due to lower marketing and administrative expenses.

ADLER TANKS

For the first quarter of 2016, the Company’s Adler Tanks division reported a $3.4 million decrease in income from operations, or 67%, to $1.7 million. Rental revenues decreased 15% to $14.4 million, depreciation expense increased 1% to $4.0 million and other direct costs increased 15% to $2.6 million, which resulted in a decrease in gross profit on rental revenues of 27% to $7.8 million. Rental related services revenues were flat at $5.6 million, with gross profit on rental related services decreasing 12% to $1.0 million. Selling and administrative expenses increased 5% to $7.3 million, primarily due to increased employee headcount and higher 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.
