CEO Commentary

Commenting on the quarter, Val Christensen, EnergySolutions President and CEO said, "We ended the year with a strong quarter driven by an increase in Federal Services, Logistics, Processing and Disposal (LP&D), and International revenues compared to the fourth quarter of 2008. Combined with disciplined expense control, the revenue growth helped us to generate our highest operating profit of the year and a substantial increase over the fourth quarter of 2008.

"The increasing flow of stimulus funds to federal environmental clean-up projects positively impacted our financial results in both the Federal Services and LP&D segments. The International segment continues to perform well in achieving efficiency milestones on its Magnox contracts. The positive trends in these business segments more than compensated for the continued weakness in our commercial business, as customers continue to delay projects due to the weak macroeconomic environment," said Mr. Christensen.

Business Segments - Fourth Quarter 2009

The results of the Company's four business segments, on a GAAP basis, are presented in Table 6 in the accompanying financial tables.

Federal Services

Federal Services revenues for the fourth quarter of 2009 were $86.8 million, compared with $69.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2008. The increase in revenues is primarily attributable to a higher level of activity as a result of stimulus funds used to accelerate work on the Moab Atlas mill tailings project, increased revenues at the Isotek project at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and increased subcontracting activity at a federal site in Portsmouth, Ohio.

Income from operations for the fourth quarter of 2009 was $6.6 million, compared with $6.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2008. Operating margin was 7.6% for the fourth quarter of 2009, compared to 8.8% for the fourth quarter of 2008. Operating margin declined primarily due to an unfavorable shift in project mix, with increased activity on lower margin contracts. Operating margin also declined due to increased bid and contract proposal expenses incurred for the submission of a bid on a large federal proposal. 

Equity in income of unconsolidated joint ventures was $1.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2009, compared with $0.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2008. This increase is primarily due to increased income from the Hanford Tank contract.

Commercial Services

Commercial Services revenues for the fourth quarter of 2009 were $21.2 million, compared with $31.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2008. The decline in revenues is primarily due to the completion of a major engineering and technology project in December 2008 and lower commercial decommissioning activity. 

Income from operations for the fourth quarter of 2009 was $4.0 million, compared with $5.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2008. Operating margin was 19.1% for the fourth quarter of 2009, compared to 16.9% for the fourth quarter of 2008. The increase in operating margin was primarily due to a favorable shift in project mix and decreased selling, general and administrative expenses.

Logistics, Processing and Disposal

Logistics, Processing and Disposal revenues for the fourth quarter of 2009 were $83.9 million, compared to $63.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2008. The increase in revenues is primarily due to higher volumes of waste disposed at the Clive, Utah facility primarily from federal customers as a result of stimulus funding, as well as higher revenues from the Company's manufacturing operations.

Income from operations for the fourth quarter of 2009 was $30.5 million, compared with $22.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2008. Operating margin was 36.3% for the fourth quarter of 2009, compared to 34.6% for the fourth quarter of 2008. The increase in operating margin is primarily due to higher gross margins at the Clive, Utah facility due to greater absorption of fixed costs.

International

On a GAAP basis, International revenues for the fourth quarter of 2009 were $256.4 million, compared to $245.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2008. Excluding the effects of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, International revenues for the fourth quarter of 2009 increased $0.8 million over the fourth quarter of 2008. International revenues were positively impacted by $10.0 million due to foreign currency fluctuations in the fourth quarter of 2009. 

Income from operations for the fourth quarter of 2009 was $19.8 million, compared with $9.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2008. Operating margin was 7.7% for the fourth quarter of 2009, compared to 3.8% for the fourth quarter of 2008. The increase in operating income and margin was primarily due to increased efficiency fees on the Magnox contracts due to the achievement of efficiency milestones during the quarter.

Full Year 2009 Results

Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2009 were $1.62 billion, compared to $1.79 billion for the year ended December 31, 2008. Gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2009 was $214.3 million, compared with $247.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2008. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2009 were $124.0 million, compared with $129.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2008. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2009 included expenses of $2.0 million relating to separation agreements of former executives and equity-based compensation of $2.6 million relating to a modification in the vesting terms of stock option and restricted stock grants of a former executive.

Net income attributable to EnergySolutions for the year ended December 31, 2009 was $50.8 million, or $0.57 per share, compared with $45.2 million, or $0.51 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2008. Non-GAAP net income attributable to EnergySolutions for the year ended December 31, 2009 was $54.4 million, or $0.62 per share.

EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2009 was $143.5 million, compared to $159.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2008. Adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2009 was $148.1 million after adding back expenses of $2.0 million relating to separation agreements of former executives and equity-based compensation of $2.6 million relating to a modification in the vesting terms of stock option and restricted stock grants of a former executive.

Net income attributable to EnergySolutions before the non-cash impact of amortization of intangible assets for the year ended December 31, 2009 was $70.5 million, or $0.80 per share, compared with $64.4 million, or $0.73 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2008. Non-GAAP net income attributable to EnergySolutions before the non-cash impact of amortization of intangible assets for the year ended December 31, 2009 was $74.1 million, or $0.84 per share.

Reconciliations of net income attributable to EnergySolutions to EBITDA and to net income attributable to EnergySolutions before the non-cash impact of amortization of intangible assets are provided in the attached Table 4. Reconciliations of net income attributable to EnergySolutions to non-GAAP net income attributable to EnergySolutions, to Adjusted EBITDA and to non-GAAP net income attributable to EnergySolutions before the impact of amortization of intangible assets are provided in the attached Table 5.

Outlook for 2010

Due to the uncertain macroeconomic outlook that continues to impact some of EnergySolutions' market segments -- particularly services and disposal revenues from our commercial customers -- the Company's guidance for 2010 does not assume any significant large component projects or any financial impact from License Stewardship contracts that could be signed during the year. 

For the full year 2010, EnergySolutions expects EBITDA to range between $140 million and $150 million. The Company expects operating income for each segment to be relatively consistent with the 2009 levels. 

The Company also expects 2010 GAAP EPS to range from $0.43 to $0.50 per share and net income before the non-cash impact of the amortization of intangibles of $0.62 to $0.69 per share. Net income and EPS in 2010 will be negatively impacted by higher interest expense and a higher effective tax rate than in 2009.

The Company defines EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. The Company uses EBITDA to facilitate a comparison of its operating performance on a consistent basis from period to period that, when viewed with its GAAP results and the above reconciliation, management believes provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting its business than GAAP measures alone. EBITDA assists management in comparing its operating performance on a consistent basis because it removes the impact of its capital structure (primarily interest charges), asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) and items outside the control of its management team (taxes) from its results of operations. EBITDA should not be considered as a substitute for net income attributable to EnergySolutions or income from operations, as determined in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA is not defined by GAAP, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analyzing the Company's results as reported under GAAP.

The Company defines net income attributable to EnergySolutions before the impact of amortization of intangible assets as net income attributable to EnergySolutions plus amortization expense of intangible assets, net of the related income tax expense of these items. Net income attributable to EnergySolutions before the impact of amortization of intangible assets and net income attributable to EnergySolutions before the impact of amortization of intangible assets per share are not computed in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures may be useful to investors seeking to compare the operating performance on a consistent basis from period to period that, when viewed with its GAAP results and the above reconciliation, management believes provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting the Company's business than GAAP measures alone. Net income attributable to EnergySolutions before the impact of amortization of intangible assets and net income attributable to EnergySolutions before the impact of amortization of intangible assets per share should not be considered as a substitute for net income attributable to EnergySolutions or net income attributable to EnergySolutions per share, as determined in accordance with GAAP. Net income attributable to EnergySolutions before the impact of amortization of intangible assets and net income attributable to EnergySolutions before the impact of amortization of intangible assets per share are not defined by GAAP, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analyzing the Company's results as reported under GAAP.

The Company defines non-GAAP net income attributable to EnergySolutions as net income attributable to EnergySolutions plus expense relating to separation agreements of former executives and equity-based compensation expense relating to a modification in the vesting terms of stock option and restricted stock grants of a former executive, net of the related income tax benefit of these items. Non-GAAP net income attributable to EnergySolutions and non-GAAP net income attributable to EnergySolutions per share are not computed in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures may be useful to investors seeking to compare the operating performance on a consistent basis from period to period that, when viewed with its GAAP results and the above reconciliation, management believes provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting the Company's business than GAAP measures alone. Non-GAAP net income attributable to EnergySolutions and non-GAAP net income attributable to EnergySolutions per share should not be considered as a substitute for net income attributable to EnergySolutions or net income attributable to EnergySolutions per share, as determined in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP net income attributable to EnergySolutions and non-GAAP net income attributable to EnergySolutions per share are not defined by GAAP, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analyzing the Company's results as reported under GAAP.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income attributable to EnergySolutions plus expense relating to separation agreements of former executives, equity-based compensation expense relating to a modification in the vesting terms of stock option and restricted stock grants of a former executive, interest expense including interest rate swap loss, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA to facilitate a comparison of its operating performance on a consistent basis from period to period that, when viewed with its GAAP results and the above reconciliation, management believes provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting its business than GAAP measures alone. Adjusted EBITDA assists management in comparing its operating performance on a consistent basis because it removes the impact of its capital structure (primarily interest charges), asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) and items outside the control of its management team (taxes, expense relating to separation agreements of former executives and equity-based compensation expense relating to a modification in the vesting terms of stock option and restricted stock grants of a former executive) from its results of operations. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a substitute for net income attributable to EnergySolutions or income from operations, as determined in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is not defined by GAAP, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analyzing the Company's results as reported under GAAP.

The Company defines non-GAAP net income attributable to EnergySolutions before the impact of amortization of intangible assets as net income attributable to EnergySolutions plus expense relating to separation agreements of former executives and equity-based compensation expense relating to a modification in the vesting terms of stock option and restricted stock grants of a former executive, net of the related income tax benefit of these items. Non-GAAP net income attributable to EnergySolutions before the impact of amortization of intangible assets and non-GAAP net income attributable to EnergySolutions before the impact of amortization of intangible assets per share are not computed in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures may be useful to investors seeking to compare the operating performance on a consistent basis from period to period that, when viewed with its GAAP results and the above reconciliation, management believes provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting the Company's business than GAAP measures alone. Non-GAAP net income attributable to EnergySolutions before the impact of amortization of intangible assets and non-GAAP net income attributable to EnergySolutions before the impact of amortization of intangible assets per share should not be considered as a substitute for net income attributable to EnergySolutions or net income attributable to EnergySolutions per share, as determined in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP net income attributable to EnergySolutions before the impact of amortization of intangible assets and non-GAAP net income before the impact of amortization of intangible assets per share are not defined by GAAP, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analyzing the Company's results as reported under GAAP.
