US Ecology Announces Third Quarter 2015 Results

Adjusted EBITDA of $33.8 Million and Adjusted EPS of $0.50

Revises 2015 Outlook on Reduced Business Activity

BOISE, ID--(Marketwired - October 29, 2015) - US Ecology, Inc. (NASDAQ: ECOL) ("the Company") today reported financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2015.

Operating income for the third quarter of 2015 was $22.4 million compared to $26.8 million in the third quarter of 2014. The Allstate Power Vac business ("Allstate"), which is expected to be divested in the fourth quarter of 2015, contributed $1.7 million and $475,000 of operating income for the third quarters of 2015 and 2014, respectively. Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2015 was $33.8 million, down 17% from $40.4 million in the same period last year. The Allstate business contributed adjusted EBITDA of $2.3 million in the third quarter of 2015 compared to $2.1 million the third quarter of 2014. Net income for the third quarter of 2015 was $9.9 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, compared to $13.3 million, or $0.61 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2014. Adjusted earnings per share, which excludes foreign currency translation losses and business development expenses, was $0.50 in the third quarter of 2015, down from $0.65 in the third quarter of 2014. A reconciliation of earnings per diluted share to adjusted earnings per diluted share and net income to adjusted EBITDA is attached as Exhibit A to this release.

Total revenue for the third quarter of 2015 was $148.4 million, down from $170.9 million in the same quarter last year. Revenue for the Environmental Services ("ES")1 segment was $96.3 million for the third quarter of 2015, down from $108.0 million in the third quarter of 2014 on a 10% decrease in treatment and disposal ("T&D") revenue. A 15% decrease in transportation revenue in the third quarter of 2015 also contributed to the decline. Revenue for the Field and Industrial Services ("FIS")2 segment was $52.1 million for the third quarter of 2015 compared to $62.8 million in the third quarter of 2014. The Allstate business contributed $20.1 million of revenue in the third quarter of 2015 compared to $17.0 million of revenue in the same period of 2014. The decrease in FIS revenue was primarily the result of lower remediation services work and lower transportation revenue in the third quarter of 2015.

For the third quarter of 2015, gross profit was $45.9 million, down from $52.3 million in the third quarter of 2014. Gross profit for the ES segment was $36.6 million in the third quarter of 2015, down from $42.7 million in the same quarter of 2014. T&D gross margin for the ES segment was 43% for the third quarter of 2015, down from 45% in the third quarter of 2014. Gross profit for the FIS segment in the third quarter of 2015 was $9.4 million (including $4.9 million from the Allstate business) compared to $9.6 million (including $3.7 million from the Allstate business) in the third quarter of 2014.

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expense for the third quarter of 2015 was $23.5 million compared with $25.5 million in the same quarter last year. SG&A includes $3.2 million in SG&A expenses from the Allstate business for the third quarter of 2015 and 2014. The decrease in SG&A primarily reflects lower labor and incentive compensation, and lower depreciation and amortization in the third quarter of 2015 compared to the third quarter of 2014.

Consolidated net interest expense for the third quarter of 2015 was $5.1 million, up from $4.5 million in the third quarter of 2014. The increase is primarily the result of a higher interest rate due to the interest rate swap the Company entered into at the beginning of 2015, which fixed the interest rate for approximately 60% of the Company's long-term debt. This increase was partially offset by principal payments on the Company's long-term debt since the third quarter of 2014.

The Company's consolidated effective income tax rate for the third quarter of 2015 was 40.9%, up from 38.7% for the third quarter of 2014. This increase primarily reflects a lower proportion of earnings from our Canadian operations which are taxed at a lower corporate tax rate.

"Third quarter operating results did not materialize as we had expected," commented Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Jeff Feeler. "Many factors contributed to these lower than anticipated results but slower business activity and deferment of remedial project based Event Business were the primary contributors. Adjusted EBITDA from our Environmental Services segment was approximately 10% below our expectations for the quarter. With the expected reduction in volume from an east coast clean up project and unanticipated lower replacement work as a result of project deferrals and shipment schedules, we experienced a 22% decline in project-driven Event Business3. Our Base Business3 was also down approximately 7% during the quarter compared to the third quarter last year driven by industry verticals such as chemical and metals manufacturing that experienced lower business activity with their customer base. The Field and Industrial Services segment results were approximately 12% lower than our expectations for the quarter on lower remedial services work."

Year-To-Date Results

The comparison between the nine month periods of September 30, 2015 and 2014 reflects the acquisition of EQ Holdings, Inc. ("EQ") that was completed on June 17, 2014.

Total revenue for the first nine months of 2015 was $424.8 million, up from $290.3 million in the first nine months of 2014. Revenue for the first nine months of 2015 included $268.8 million from the acquired EQ businesses compared to $125.6 million in the first nine months of 2014. Revenue for the ES segment was $278.9 million for the first nine months of 2015, up from $219.3 million in the same period last year. Revenue for the FIS business segment was $145.9 million for the first nine months of 2015 compared to $71.0 million for the first nine months of 2014. The Allstate business, which is expected to be divested in the fourth quarter of 2015, contributed $51.0 million of revenue in the first nine months of 2015 compared to $19.6 million in the first nine months of 2014.

Excluding the acquired EQ operations, ES revenue decreased $8.7 million, or 5%, in the first nine months of 2015 compared to the same period last year on a 7% decline in T&D revenue. Transportation service revenue increased 5% compared to the first nine months of 2014.

For the first nine months of 2015, gross profit was $127.3 million, up from $99.6 million in the first nine months of 2014. Gross profit for the ES segment in the first nine months of 2015 was $103.9 million, up from $88.5 million in the same period of 2014. Excluding the acquired EQ operations, ES gross profit was $60.3 million, down 11% from $67.4 million in the first nine months of 2014. T&D gross margin for the legacy US Ecology business was 48% for the first nine months of 2015 and 50% for the first nine months of 2014. Gross profit for the FIS segment was $23.3 million for the first nine months of 2015 compared to $11.1 million for the first nine months of 2014 and included $10.8 million and $4.2 million of gross profit, respectively, from the Allstate business which is expected to be divested in the fourth quarter of 2015.

SG&A expense for the first nine months of 2015 was $71.1 million compared with $46.3 million in the first nine months of 2014. The increase reflects $44.2 million in SG&A from the acquired EQ operations in the first nine months of 2015 compared to $20.2 million for the first nine months of 2014. This increase was partially offset by lower business development expenses in the first nine months of 2015 compared to the same period of 2014.

As previously reported in the second quarter of 2015, the Company performed an evaluation of the recoverability of the assets associated with the industrial services business and as a result of this evaluation recorded a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $6.7 million during the second quarter of 2015.

Consolidated net interest expense for the first nine months of 2015 was $16.1 million, up from $5.4 million in the same period of 2014, reflecting interest expense on increased credit facility borrowings used to fund the EQ acquisition.

The Company's consolidated effective income tax rate when excluding the non-deductible goodwill impairment charge for the first nine months of 2015 was 37.6%, down slightly from 37.7% for the first nine months of 2014.

2015 Outlook

"We currently expect the headwinds we encountered during the third quarter to continue in the fourth quarter," commented Feeler. "Industry verticals such as chemical and metal manufacturing are likely to see lower business activity throughout the balance of the year, creating a difficult comparison. On the Event Business side, despite seeing emerging opportunities in the market place that will benefit the fourth quarter and beyond, we continue to see other projects being delayed or deferred and certain shipping schedules slipping. Given this trend in both our Base and Event business, we expect that our final quarter of 2015 will look very similar to the just completed third quarter."

As a result of current market conditions, we are revising our full year guidance. We now expect Adjusted EBITDA for our core business (excluding the full year impact of the Allstate business expected to be divested on November 1, 2015) to range between $122 million and $125 million for the full year of 2015. Our previously issued Adjusted EBITDA guidance (excluding Allstate) was expected to range between $128 million to $132 million. We also expect Adjusted Earnings Per Share to range between $1.73 to $1.80, down from our previous range of $1.76 to $1.92 per diluted share. Our Adjusted Earnings Per Share reflects an approximately $0.03 contribution from the Allstate business for our ownership period in 2015.

All guidance information excludes business development expenses, foreign currency gains and losses, goodwill impairment charges and other non-recurring, noncash charges.

"We believe the current quarter challenges are short-term and reflect a changing business cycle as manufacturers and select Base business customers adjust for slowing growth in 2015. As we cycle through the completion of some of our larger project-based business, market opportunities continue to be strong. We have secured work that has commenced the reloading of remedial cleanup projects for 2016 and with a solid pipeline we remain optimistic in our long-term prospects and market position," commented Feeler.

Dividend

On October 1, 2015, the Company declared a quarterly dividend of $0.18 per common share for stockholders of record on October 21, 2015. The $3.9 million dividend was paid on October 28, 2015.

1 Environmental Services ("ES") - This segment includes all of US Ecology's legacy operations and the legacy EQ treatment and disposal facilities. It provides diversified waste services including transportation, recycling, treatment and disposal of hazardous and non-hazardous materials at Company-owned landfill, wastewater and other treatment facilities.

2 Field & Industrial Services ("FIS") - This segment includes all of the legacy EQ field and industrial services business. It provides waste packaging, collection and total waste management solutions at customer sites and through our 10-day transfer facilities. Services include on-site management, waste characterization, transportation and disposal of non-hazardous and hazardous waste. This segment also provides specialty services such as high-pressure and chemical cleaning, centrifuge and materials processing, tank cleaning, decontamination, remediation, spill cleanup, emergency response and other services to commercial and industrial facilities and government entities.

3 Base and Event Business Definitions - Starting with the third quarter of 2015 we redefined "Base" and "Event" Business as we integrate the legacy EQ ES business into these metrics. Previously, US Ecology defined "Event Business" as non-recurring projects regardless of size. "Base Business" represented that business that was not considered "Event" and represented recurring waste streams. We now define "Event Business" as non-recurring projects that are equal to, or greater than 1,000 tons. We believe this new definition is a better representation of Base and Event Business and will provide better insight into the business taken as a whole. As we report future quarters, prior periods presented will be recast based on the new definition.

EXHIBIT A

Non-GAAP Results and Reconciliation

US Ecology reports 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 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 and adjusted earnings per diluted share are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance.

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 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.

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, non-cash impairment charges 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 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014:

Adjusted Earnings Per Diluted Share

The Company defines adjusted earnings per diluted share as net income plus the after tax impact of non-cash, non-operational impairment charges and foreign currency gains or losses ("Foreign Currency Gain/Loss") plus the after tax impact of business development costs divided by the number of diluted shares used in the earnings per share calculation.

Impairment charges excluded from the earnings per diluted share calculation are related to the Company's decision to explore strategic alternatives for our industrial services business. The Foreign Currency Gain/Loss excluded from the earnings per diluted share calculation are related to intercompany loans between our Canadian subsidiary and the U.S. parent which 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. We believe excluding the currency movements for these intercompany financial instruments provides meaningful information to investors regarding the operational and financial performance of the Company. Business development costs relate to expenses incurred to evaluate businesses for potential acquisition or costs related to closing and integrating successfully acquired businesses.

We believe excluding these non-cash impairment charges, foreign currency movements for intercompany financial instruments and business development costs provides meaningful information to investors regarding the operational and financial performance of the Company.
