US Ecology Announces Second Quarter 2017 Results

Net Income of $5.0 Million; Adjusted EBITDA of $27.6 Million; Reaffirms 2017 Full Year Outlook

BOISE, ID--(Marketwired - July 27, 2017) - US Ecology, Inc. (NASDAQ: ECOL) ("the Company") today reported total revenue of $126.1 million and net income of $5.0 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2017. Adjusted earnings per share, which excludes foreign currency translation gains and losses the non-cash write-down of deferred financing fees and business development expenses, was $0.38 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2017.

"Business conditions continue to develop in line with our expectations for the year," commented Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Jeff Feeler. "We saw marked improvement in Event Business for our Environmental Services segment in the second quarter of 2017 with growth of 24% compared to the same quarter last year. Base Business for the Environmental Services segment also showed solid gains, up 3% over the second quarter of 2016. This strength was offset in part by the shutdown of one of our treatment facilities due to severe wind damage in March. As a result of the lost profit from this facility we expect to recover $2.5 to $3.5 million in business interruption proceeds in the second half of the year. Our Field and Industrial Services Segment delivered results in line with expectations, but down from the prior year as we cycle a contract that was not renewed in late 2016."

Total revenue for the second quarter of 2017 was $126.1 million, up from $122.4 million in the same quarter last year. Revenue for the Environmental Services ("ES") segment was $89.6 million for the second quarter of 2017, up 8% from $82.8 million reported in the second quarter of 2016. A 6% increase in treatment and disposal ("T&D") revenue as well as a 15% increase in transportation revenue drove the improvement from the second quarter of 2016. Revenue for the Field and Industrial Services ("FIS") segment was $36.5 million for the second quarter of 2017 compared to $39.6 million in the same period of 2016, reflecting the expiration of a contract that was not renewed and softer overall market conditions for industrial and remediation services.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2017 was $35.9 million, down from $36.9 million in the same quarter last year. Gross profit for the ES segment was $30.7 million in the second quarter of 2017, up slightly from $30.6 million in the same quarter of 2016. T&D gross margin for the ES segment declined to 38% for the second quarter of 2017 from 42% in the second quarter of 2016, driven primarily by the shutdown of one of our large treatment facilities due to severe wind damage. Gross profit for the FIS segment in the second quarter of 2017 was $5.2 million. This compares to gross profit of $6.3 million in the second quarter of 2016. The decline was due to the reduced revenue as well as a less favorable service mix in the second quarter of 2017.

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expense for the second quarter of 2017 was $20.0 million compared with $19.8 million in the same quarter last year. SG&A expense increased in the second quarter of 2017 compared to the same period last year due to higher labor and incentive compensation, partially offset by insurance recoveries of approximately $1.1 million primarily related to repairs at our treatment facility in Detroit that was damaged by a windstorm in March of 2017.

Operating income for the second quarter of 2017 was $15.9 million compared to $17.1 million in the second quarter of 2016.

Net interest expense for the second quarter of 2017 was $8.5 million, up from $4.3 million in the second quarter of 2016. Interest expense for the second quarter of 2017 included the previously announced non-cash charge of $5.5 million associated with the write-off of deferred financing fees related to our former credit facility that was refinanced in April 2017. Excluding the non-cash deferred financing fees charge, interest expense decreased compared to the second quarter of 2016 as a result of a lower interest rate on our new credit facility and reduced debt levels.

The Company's consolidated effective income tax rate for the second quarter of 2017 was 35.0%, down from 39.6% for the second quarter of 2016. The decrease was due primarily to a higher proportion of earnings from our Canadian operations in the second quarter of 2017, which are taxed at a lower corporate tax rate.

Net income for the second quarter of 2017 was $5.0 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, compared to $8.9 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2016. Adjusted earnings per share, which excludes foreign currency translation gains and losses, the gain on sale of divested businesses, the non-cash write-down of deferred financing fees, and business development expenses, was $0.38 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2017, compared to $0.37 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2017 was $27.6 million, down slightly from $27.7 million in the same period last year.

Reconciliations of earnings per diluted share to adjusted earnings per diluted share and net income to adjusted EBITDA are attached as Exhibit A to this release.

Year-To-Date Results

Total revenue for the first six months of 2017 was $236.3 million, up from $235.7 million in the first six months of 2016. Revenue for the ES segment was $170.9 million for the first six months of 2017, up from $164.3 million in the same period of 2016. This increase consisted of a 5% increase in T&D revenue and slightly lower transportation revenue compared to the first six months of 2016. Revenue for the FIS segment was $65.4 million for the first six months of 2017 compared to $71.3 million in the same period of 2016, reflecting the expiration of a contract that was not renewed and softer overall market conditions for industrial and remediation services.

Gross profit for the first six months of 2017 was $67.8 million, down from $72.1 million in the same period last year. Gross profit for the ES segment was $59.4 million in the first six months of 2017, down from $61.1 million in the first six months of 2016. T&D gross margin for the ES segment was 38% for the first six months of 2017 compared to 41% for the first six months of 2016, driven primarily by the March 2017 shutdown of one of our large treatment facilities due to severe wind damage. Gross profit for the FIS segment in the first six months of 2017 was $8.4 million. This compares to $11.1 million in the first six months of 2016. The decline was due to the reduced revenue as well as a less favorable service mix in the second quarter of 2017.

SG&A expense for the first six months of 2017 was $39.7 million compared with $39.2 million in the same period last year. The increase in SG&A expense was primarily due to higher labor and incentive compensation, partially offset by insurance recoveries of approximately $1.3 million primarily related to repairs at a Detroit treatment facility.

Operating income for the first six months of 2017 was $28.1 million, down 15% from $32.9 million in the first six months of 2016.

Net interest expense for the first six months of 2017 was $12.6 million, up from $8.8 million in the first six months of 2016. Interest expense for the first six months of 2017 included the non-cash charge of $5.5 million associated with the write-off of deferred financing fees related to our former credit facility that was refinanced in April 2017. Excluding the non-cash deferred financing fees charge, interest expense decreased compared to the first six months of 2016 as a result of a lower interest rate on our new credit facility and reduced debt levels.

The Company's consolidated effective income tax rate for the first six months of 2017 was 36.2%, down from 39.1% for the first six months of 2016. This decrease primarily reflects a higher proportion of earnings from our Canadian operations which are taxed at a lower corporate tax rate.

Net income for the first six months of 2017 was $10.2 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, compared to $16.5 million, or $0.76 per diluted share, in the first six months of 2016. Adjusted earnings per share, which excludes foreign currency translation gains and losses, the gain on sale of divested businesses, the non-cash write-down of deferred financing fees, and business development expenses, was $0.61 per diluted share in the first six months of 2017 compared to $0.69 per diluted share for the first six months of 2016. Adjusted EBITDA for the first six months of 2017 was $51.1 million, down 5% from $53.9 million in the same period last year. Reconciliations of earnings per diluted share to adjusted earnings per diluted share and net income to adjusted EBITDA are attached as Exhibit A to this release.

Debt Refinancing

On April 18, 2017, the Company entered into a new $500 million, five-year, senior revolving credit facility (the "New Credit Agreement") with a syndicate of banks to refinance the Company's former credit facility. The interest rate under the New Credit Agreement is initially set at LIBOR Rate plus 1.50%, representing a 150 basis point improvement over the interest rate from our previous credit facility. Additional details and terms, including a copy of the New Credit Agreement, can be found in the Form 8-K filed by the Company on April 20, 2017.

The reduced interest rates and fees on the New Credit Agreement are expected to generate cash interest savings of approximately $15 million over the five-year term. Additionally, in connection with the termination of the former credit facility, the Company wrote off $5.5 million of unamortized deferred financing costs related to fees paid on the former credit facility. This non-cash charge was recognized as additional interest expense in our second quarter 2017 financial results.

2017 Outlook

"Overall, business conditions remain consistent with our expectations," added Feeler. "We have seen a return to growth in our Event Business during the second quarter and our Base Business continues to perform in line with our expectations of 3-5% growth for the full year. Our pipeline of opportunities is expanding and we continue to project significant financial improvement during the second half of the year. We also expect to receive between $2.5 and $3.5 million of insurance proceeds in the second half of the year, related to lost profit for the shutdown of our treatment facility during the second quarter. We do remain cautious however, due to continuing shifting of certain projects from our third quarter to our fourth quarter of the year, creating the potential for further slippage into the first quarter of 2018."

While the Company is reaffirming its previously issued 2017 adjusted EBITDA guidance range of $120 million to $130 million, we are currently tracking to the lower end of the adjusted EBITDA guidance range.

The following table reconciles our projected net income to our adjusted EBITDA guidance range:

  
 For the Year Ending December 31, 2017

Net Income$34,100  $39,300

 Accretion of closure & post-closure obligations 4,300   4,300
Adjusted EBITDA$120,000  $130,000
       

The Company is also reaffirming its annual adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance range of $1.69 to $1.93. In our earnings release for the first quarter of 2017, we indicated that our 2017 adjusted earnings per share guidance range, reaffirmed at that time, was inclusive of an estimated $0.15 per diluted share non-cash charge related to the write-off of deferred financing fees and an expected $0.08 per diluted share of interest savings, equating to a net $0.07 unfavorable impact to the Company's stated guidance. In connection with the release of our second quarter 2017 earnings, we are now excluding the actual deferred financing charge of $0.16 per diluted share from our reported adjusted earnings per share, as this charge is considered non-recurring to ongoing operations. As a result, we have correspondingly revised our adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance calculation to exclude this non-cash, non-recurring charge. The net result is that while the original guidance range remains intact, the Company is now tracking above the midpoint of the range. The adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance also excludes business development expenses and foreign currency gains and losses.

The following table reconciles our projected diluted earnings per share to our projected adjusted diluted earnings per share range:

      
 For the Year Ending December 31, 2017

EXHIBIT A

Non-GAAP Results and Reconciliation

US Ecology reports adjusted EBITDA, Pro Forma adjusted EBITDA and adjusted earnings per diluted share results, which are non-GAAP financial measures, as a complement to results provided in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP) and believes that such information provides analysts, stockholders, and other users information to better understand the Company's operating performance. Because adjusted EBITDA, Pro Forma adjusted EBITDA and adjusted earnings per diluted share are not measurements determined in accordance with GAAP and are thus susceptible to varying calculations they may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies. Items excluded from adjusted EBITDA, Pro Forma adjusted EBITDA and adjusted earnings per diluted share are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance.

Adjusted EBITDA, Pro Forma adjusted EBITDA and adjusted earnings per diluted share should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to, or substitute for, net income, cash flows generated by operations, investing or financing activities, or other financial statement data presented in the consolidated financial statements as indicators of financial performance or liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA, Pro Forma adjusted EBITDA and adjusted earnings per diluted share have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or a substitute for analyzing our results as reported under GAAP. Some of the limitations are:

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our interest expense, or the requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our income tax expenses or the cash requirements to pay our taxes;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments; and
  • Although depreciation and amortization charges are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash requirements for such replacements.
  • Pro Forma adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our business development expenses, which may vary significantly quarter to quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA

The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as net income before interest expense, interest income, income tax expense, depreciation, amortization, stock based compensation, accretion of closure and post-closure liabilities, foreign currency gain/loss and other income/expense, which are not considered part of usual business operations.

The following reconciliation itemizes the differences between reported net income and adjusted EBITDA and Pro Forma adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016:

Adjusted Earnings Per Diluted Share

The Company defines adjusted earnings per diluted share as net income adjusted for the after-tax impact of non-cash foreign currency translation gains or losses, the after-tax impact of non-cash write-off of deferred financing fees related to our former credit agreement and the after-tax impact of business development costs, divided by the number of diluted shares used in the earnings per share calculation.

The foreign currency translation gains or losses excluded from the earnings per diluted share calculation are related to intercompany loans between our Canadian subsidiaries and the U.S. parent that have been established as part of our tax and treasury management strategy. These intercompany loans are payable in Canadian dollars ("CAD") requiring us to revalue the outstanding loan balance through our consolidated income statement based on the CAD/United States currency movements from period to period. Business development costs relate to expenses incurred to evaluate businesses for potential acquisition or costs related to closing and integrating successfully acquired businesses. The non-cash write-off of deferred financing fees relates to the write-off of the remaining unamortized fees associated with our former credit agreement which was refinanced in April 2017.

We believe excluding non-cash foreign currency translation gains or losses and the after-tax impact of the non-cash write off of deferred financing fees and the after-tax impact of business development costs provides meaningful information to investors regarding the operational and financial performance of the Company.

The following reconciliation itemizes the differences between reported net income and earnings per diluted share to adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016:
