Team, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2017 Results

SUGAR LAND, Texas, Nov. 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Team, Inc. (NYSE:TISI) (“Team,” “we,” “our,” or the “Company”) today reported its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017.

  • Revenues decreased slightly from the third quarter 2016 to $285.1 million, reflecting the negative impact from hurricanes affecting the U.S. Gulf Coast region
  • Continued progress on previously-outlined cost reduction initiative; actions largely completed to reduce annualized expense run-rate of approximately $30 million

Revenues for the current quarter decreased by 1.6% to $285.1 million compared to revenues of $289.6 million for the prior year comparable quarter primarily due to adverse effects from the two Gulf Coast hurricanes, both in terms of project deferrals and reduced billable hours charged to active projects. Team reported a net loss of $83.5 million ($2.80 loss per diluted share) for the current year quarter versus a net loss of $4.2 million ($0.14 loss per diluted share) for the prior year comparable quarter.

The third quarter reported results include certain items that are not indicative of Team’s core operating activities: a $75.2 million goodwill impairment charge (discussed in the supplemental information section of this press release), $2.2 million of expenses related to the Gulf Coast hurricanes, $3.9 million of non-capitalized enterprise resource planning (“ERP”) system implementation costs, $3.7 million of restructuring and executive transition costs, $1.9 million of certain legal and professional fees, a $1.2 million write-off of deferred loan costs and a gain of $6.3 million associated with the conversion feature of Team’s convertible debt, which is accounted for as a derivative liability under GAAP.

Excluding these items that are not indicative of core operating activities, adjusted net loss, a non-GAAP measure, was $11.4 million ($0.38 adjusted loss per diluted share) for the current quarter versus adjusted net loss of $0.4 million ($0.01 adjusted loss per diluted share) for the prior year quarter.

Adjusted net income (loss), a non-GAAP measure, excludes certain items that are not indicative of Team’s core operating activities of $72.2 million (net of tax), or $2.42 per diluted share, for the current year quarter and $3.8 million (net of tax), or $0.13 per diluted share, for the prior year quarter. (See the accompanying reconciliation of non-GAAP items at the end of this news release.)

Gary Yesavage, Team's Interim Chief Executive Officer, said, “Since becoming interim CEO, I have been focused on creating a culture of Management discipline and accountability in everything we do. We have been working hard to stabilize our performance, and we are operating with a sense of urgency to return to profitability. It is imperative that we improve the overall performance of our business, and we continue to identify performance gaps across our operational footprint and right-size our cost structure. I expect our efforts will take hold over the coming quarters so we can deliver on our expectations for these objectives.

“As we enter the last quarter of the year, we are also focused on both positioning the Company for the eventual market recovery and continuing our efforts to integrate our earlier acquisitions. While we have a lot more work in front of us, we are encouraged by the progress we've made on the cost reduction plan announced in July to reduce the Company’s annual operating expense and selling, general & administrative expense run rate by approximately $30 million, which we have largely completed. We are also aggressively pursuing additional cost reduction actions beyond the $30 million target and leveraging strategic business performance initiatives, including optimizing existing work processes to improve overall efficiencies. Team is the preeminent global industrial services company, and we expect to become more cost competitive to create more value to our customers, and ultimately, for our stockholders.”

The year-over-year decrease in TeamQualspec’s revenues relates largely to the Gulf Coast hurricanes, both in terms of lower volumes from deferred and suspended projects as well as lost billable hours. The sharp decline in operating income was primarily due to a goodwill impairment charge of $21.1 million in the third quarter of 2017. On an adjusted basis, operating income in the 2017 quarter was $5.8 million. The prior quarter adjusted operating income was $8.6 million.

The year-over-year decrease in TeamFurmanite’s revenues relates largely to the hurricanes, both in terms of lower volumes from deferred and suspended projects as well as lost billable hours. The sharp decline in operating income was primarily due to a goodwill impairment charge of $54.1 million in the third quarter of 2017. On an adjusted basis, TeamFurmanite reported operating income of $5.0 million in the 2017 third quarter versus operating income of $6.6 million in the 2016 third quarter.

Quest Integrity’s increase in revenues was driven by slightly higher activity levels which were partially offset by hurricane-related impacts. Quest Integrity’s operating loss was $0.8 million in the third quarter of 2017, compared to $0.4 million of operating income in the third quarter of 2016. On an adjusted basis, Quest Integrity reported an operating loss of $0.4 million in the 2017 quarter versus operating income of $1.0 million in the 2016 quarter.

Adjusted operating income (loss) is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes certain items that are not indicative of Team’s core operating activities. (See the accompanying reconciliation of non-GAAP items at the end of this news release.)

Supplemental Financial Information

Goodwill impairment: The Company recognized a non-cash goodwill impairment loss during the three months ended September 30, 2017 of $75.2 million, of which $54.1 million was attributable to the TeamFurmanite segment, while $21.1 million was attributable to the TeamQualspec segment. These losses were a result of an interim goodwill impairment test that was triggered as a result of certain impairment indicators that were present during the quarter, primarily the decline in the market capitalization of the Company and continued market softness.

Interest expense: The Company recorded $6.4 million of interest expense during the third quarter of 2017, which includes $1.1 million of non-cash interest expense. The non-cash interest expense is attributable to the amortization of debt issuance costs and the amortization of the discount on our convertible debt.

Credit Facility: At September 30, 2017, Team had $26.7 million of cash on hand and had approximately $51 million of available borrowing capacity through the Company’s banking credit facility (the “Credit Facility”). In connection with the repayment in full of the outstanding term-loan portion of the Credit Facility of $160.0 million on July 31, 2017 and the reduction in capacity of the revolving portion of the Credit Facility, the Company recorded a loss of $1.2 million during the three months ended September 30, 2017 related to a write-off of deferred loan costs.

Gain on convertible debt embedded derivative: The Company recorded a non-cash gain of $6.3 million related to the embedded conversion feature associated with the Company’s convertible debt during three months ended September 30, 2017, primarily a result of the decrease in the Company’s stock price from the issuance date of the debt. The valuation of such derivative liability is highly sensitive to changes in the price of Team’s common stock. Generally, decreases in the Company’s stock price will result in gains, while increases will result in losses.

ERP implementation: Through September 30, 2017, Team has capitalized $46.6 million associated with the ERP project, which includes $1.6 million of capitalized interest, and has recognized $1.9 million of amortization expense. To date, approximately 98% of locations in the U.S. are running on the new ERP system, with the final U.S. locations scheduled to be migrated to the new system in December 2017.

GAAP Earnings and Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Certain items that management believes are not indicative of Team’s core operating activities have been excluded from net income (loss) reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) when arriving at adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted operating income (loss) (which the Company also refers to as adjusted EBIT), each a non-GAAP financial measure. In the current quarter, the most significant of such items pertained to a goodwill impairment loss of $75.2 million, a gain on the Company’s convertible debt embedded derivative of $6.3 million, non-capitalized ERP implementation costs of $3.9 million and restructuring charges and executive transition costs of $3.7 million.

A reconciliation of these financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures is contained in the accompanying schedule.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Unaudited)

The Company uses supplemental non-GAAP financial measures which are derived from the consolidated financial information including adjusted net income (loss); adjusted net income (loss) per share, earnings before interest and taxes (“EBIT”); adjusted EBIT (defined below); and adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“adjusted EBITDA”) to supplement financial information presented on a GAAP basis. Adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share, each as defined by the Company, exclude the following items from net income (loss): acquisition costs associated with business combinations, legal costs associated with Quest Integrity patent defense litigation, professional fees for acquired business integration and changing our fiscal year end, gains and losses on the revaluation of contingent consideration, non-capitalized ERP implementation costs, restructuring and other related charges, goodwill impairment losses, executive severance/transition costs, gains (losses) on our convertible debt embedded derivative, write-off of deferred loan costs, and certain other items that management does not believe are indicative of core operating activities and the related income tax impacts. We also exclude the income tax impacts of certain special income tax items including changes to valuation allowances in several foreign subsidiaries. The identification of these special tax items is judgmental in nature, and their calculation is based on various assumptions and estimates. EBIT, as defined by the Company, excludes discontinued operations, income tax expense, interest charges and items of other (income) expense and therefore is equal to operating income (loss) reported in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBIT further excludes the following items: acquisition costs associated with business combinations, legal costs associated with Quest Integrity patent defense litigation, professional fees for acquired business integration and changing our fiscal year end, gains and losses on the revaluation of contingent consideration, non-capitalized ERP implementation costs, restructuring and other related charges, goodwill impairment losses, executive severance/transition costs, and certain other items that management does not believe are indicative of core operating activities. Adjusted EBITDA further excludes from adjusted EBIT depreciation, amortization and non-cash share based compensation costs.

Management believes that excluding certain items from GAAP results allows management to better understand the consolidated financial performance from period to period and to better identify operating trends that may not otherwise be apparent. Moreover, the Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures will provide its stakeholders with useful information to help them evaluate operating performance. However, there are limitations to the use of the non-GAAP financial measures presented in this report. The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies who may calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently than Team does, limiting the usefulness of those measures for comparative purposes.

The non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered as indicators of performance in isolation from or as a substitute for net income (loss) as a measure of operating performance or to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity, prepared in accordance with GAAP, and should be read only in conjunction with financial information presented on a GAAP basis. Reconciliations of each non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure are presented below. You are encouraged to review the reconciliations in conjunction with the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures for each of the periods presented.
