SP Plus Corporation Announces First Quarter 2016 Results

First quarter performance largely in-line with expectations;
Strong cost management drives lower G&A; Significant increase in free cash flow; Company
affirms full-year 2016 guidance

CHICAGO, May 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SP Plus Corporation (Nasdaq:SP), a leading national provider of parking, ground transportation and related products and services to commercial, institutional and municipal clients throughout North America, today announced its results for the first quarter 2016.

G Marc Baumann, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Our first quarter results were largely in line with our expectations. A major driver of the year-over-year decline in adjusted gross profit was the comparison against favorable adjustments to casualty loss reserves and health benefit claims costs in the first quarter of 2015 that we did not expect to reoccur. On the G&A side, our continued focus on controlling costs allowed us to improve adjusted G&A significantly year-over-year. We’re pleased that first quarter 2016 adjusted free cash flow was significantly higher than last year.”

Mr. Baumann continued, “Our urban and airport markets saw varied results for the quarter, however our overall results were in line with our internal plan, and we’re particularly encouraged by the turnaround in New York where quarterly gross profit improved both year-over-year and sequentially.

“New business activity is running ahead of last year’s record pace. We’re excited about our entry into the Las Vegas market with our kick-off of parking operations at twelve MGM Resorts hotels, as well as our addition of several other new locations throughout the country. I’m also pleased that location retention improved to 90% for the period ended March 31, 2016, up from 89% for the same period last year.”

Mr. Baumann concluded, “Looking ahead, we still expect to achieve adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EPS and adjusted free cash flow in line with the guidance we gave at the end of February. As we’ve commented on previously, our business is subject to some seasonality and as a result the first calendar quarter is generally our weakest quarter. In addition, fluctuations in the timing and magnitude of casualty reserve adjustments and the volatility of health benefit claim costs can also impact quarterly performance.”

First Quarter Operating Results

Reported gross profit in the first quarter of 2016 was $38.4 million, compared to $41.2 million in the first quarter of 2015, a decrease of $2.8 million or 7%. On an adjusted basis, first quarter adjusted gross profit decreased $3.1 million or 7% as compared to the same period of 2015. The main drivers of the year-over-year decrease were the non-recurrence of a favorable change in casualty loss reserve estimates for prior years that benefitted the first quarter of last year by $0.8 million, increased health benefit costs and the impact of the loss of a few airport locations in the second half of 2015.

Reported general and administrative (G&A) expenses for the first quarter of 2016 were $24.6 million as compared to reported G&A of $25.7 million in the first quarter of 2015, a decrease of $1.1 million or 4%. First quarter 2016 adjusted G&A expenses were $22.3 million, a decrease of $1.5 million or 6% from the first quarter of 2015, driven primarily by reductions in compensation and related costs.

Resulting adjusted EBITDA was $15.0 million for the first quarter of 2016, as compared with $16.7 million on the same basis for the first quarter of 2015.

Reported earnings per share for the first quarter of 2016 was $0.00 as compared to reported earnings per share of $0.06 for the first quarter of 2015. Adjusted earnings per share was $0.10 for the first quarter of 2016, as compared with adjusted earnings per share of $0.13 for the first quarter of 2015.

The Company generated $3.6 million of adjusted free cash flow during the first quarter of 2016, as compared with a negative ($11.5) million during the first quarter of 2015. The increase in free cash flow was largely due to timing of favorable changes in working capital, as well as lower cash tax payments and capital expenditures, and the receipt of proceeds from an asset sale and a contract termination.

Except as expressly required by the federal securities laws, the Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, changed circumstances or future events or for any other reason.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company considers certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, including gross profit plus costs incurred related to non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases and less gross profit impact related to asset sales or dispositions (also referred to as adjusted gross profit); general and administrative expenses less restructuring, merger and integration related costs, costs related to asset sales or dispositions, non-routine settlements, and costs incurred related to the Parkmobile and other contemplated transactions (also referred to as adjusted G&A); net income and net income per share attributable to SP Plus plus costs incurred related to non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases, restructuring, merger and integration related costs, net income impact related to asset sales or dispositions, non-routine settlements, costs incurred related to the Parkmobile and other contemplated transactions, and costs incurred in connection with the amendment to the senior credit agreement (adjustments were tax affected at a statutory tax rate of 41% for the first quarter of 2016 and 42% for the first quarter of 2015), and eliminating non-routine tax adjustments (also referred to as adjusted net income attributable to SP Plus and adjusted EPS); EBITDA and EBITDA plus costs incurred related to non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases, restructuring, merger and integration related costs, non-routine settlements, and costs incurred related to the Parkmobile and other contemplated transactions less EBITDA impact related to asset sales or dispositions (also referred to as adjusted EBITDA); and free cash flow and free cash flow plus cash used for non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases (also referred to as adjusted free cash flow). Based on the timing of asset sales and/or dispositions, previously reported adjusted non-GAAP measures have been revised (and may be further revised) to provide a presentation consistent with how management evaluates such performance and consistent with the performance guidance provided previously by the Company.

The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, to evaluate its operating and financial performance and to compare such performance to that of prior periods and to the performance of its competitors. Additionally, the Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making operational and financial decisions and in the Company’s budgeting and planning process. The Company believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures to investors helps investors evaluate the Company’s operating performance, profitability and business trends in a way that is consistent with how management evaluates such performance and consistent with guidance previously provided by the Company. Adjusted gross profit, adjusted G&A, adjusted net income attributable to SP Plus, adjusted EPS, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, and free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow should not be considered as alternatives to, or more meaningful indicators of the Company's operating performance or liquidity than, gross profit, G&A, net income, EPS or net cash provided by operating activities, as determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the Company's calculation of such non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents GAAP net income attributable to the Company before (i) interest expense net of interest income, (ii) provision for income taxes, (iii) depreciation and amortization, (iv) gain on sale of a business or contribution of a business to an unconsolidated entity, and (v) equity in the gains or losses from investment in an unconsolidated entity. Adjusted EBITDA further adjusts EBITDA by adding costs incurred related to non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases, restructuring, merger and integration related costs, non-routine settlements, and costs incurred related to the Parkmobile and other contemplated transactions and subtracting gross profit and G&A impacts related to asset sales or dispositions.

The Company defines free cash flow as net cash from operating activities, less cash used for investing activities (exclusive of acquisitions and net proceeds from the sale of businesses), less distribution to noncontrolling interest, plus the effect of exchange rate changes on cash and cash equivalents. Adjusted free cash flow also excludes the cash used for non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases. The Company believes that the presentation of free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow provides useful information regarding its recurring cash provided by operating activities after certain expenditures. It also demonstrates the Company's ability to execute its financial strategy. The Company's presentations of free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow have material limitations. The Company's free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow do not represent its cash flow available for discretionary expenditures because it excludes certain expenditures that are required or to which the Company has committed, such as debt service requirements. The Company's definition of free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

For reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, see the accompanying tables to this release.
