HOUSTON, December 08, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DXP Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: DXPE) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021. The following are results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and sequentially for the three months ended June 30, 2021, where appropriate. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures can be found in the back of this press release.

Third Quarter 2021 financial highlights:

  • Sales increased 31.5 percent to $289.5 million, compared to $220.2 million for the third quarter of 2020 and $285.7 million for the second quarter of 2021.

  • Earnings per diluted share for the third quarter was $0.36 based upon 19.6 million diluted shares, compared to a loss of $1.95 per share in the third quarter of September 30, 2020, based on 17.8 million diluted shares.

  • Net income for the third quarter was $7.1 million, compared to a loss of $34.7 million for the prior-year period.

  • Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) for the third quarter of 2021 was $18.8 million compared to $22.6 million for the second quarter of 2021 and $13.7 million for the third quarter of 2020.

  • Cash flow from operations was $6.6 million, compared to $7.6 million for the second quarter of 2021.

  • Free cash flow (cash flow from operations less capital expenditures) for the third quarter of 2021 was $5.2 million, compared to $6.8 million in the second quarter of 2021.

David R. Little, Chairman and CEO commented, "We are pleased to report our third quarter financial results. DXP's third quarter sales included year-over-year increases across all three business segments. Total DXP sales increased sequentially and were essentially flat from a sales per business day standpoint compared to Q2 with continued improvement in gross margins. Service Centers led the way with strong performance across all comparatives. Our improved momentum continued in the third quarter as our DXPeople worked together to manage through supply chain challenges and get in front of rising product costs as we rebound from COVID. With strong contributions from our acquisitions, we delivered another quarter of sales and gross margin improvement.

DXP’s third quarter 2021 sales were $289.5 million, or a 31.5 percent increase year-over-year and an 1.3 percent increase over the second quarter. During the third quarter, sales were $212.5 million for Service Centers, $40.5 million for Supply Chain Services and $36.4 million for Innovative Pumping Solutions. We experienced our first sequential quarter end increase in 10 quarters within the IPS backlog while experiencing a rising oil and gas price environment. Most of our customers and the markets we serve continue to show improvement. We remain encouraged by the sequential increases despite the continued choppiness associated with COVID-19 and the related supply chain issues. We added two acquisitions during the quarter and have more active deals that we expect to close moving into fiscal year 2022. With ongoing positive market trends, a strong acquisition pipeline and steady improvement in our execution and capabilities, we are confident in our ability to deliver strong results to our stakeholders during the remainder of 2021 and beyond. Thank you to all our customers and DXPeople."

Kent Yee, CFO, added, "First, I want to thank McConnell & Jones for working with us to get our third quarter done in a timely manner and putting us in a position to follow suit with our year-end audit. With our filing of our third quarter results, we are now current on all filings. Our third quarter year-over-year sales growth of 31.5 percent and gross margin improvement were great to see. Our financial results reflect our continued focus on our customers and improving market conditions. Sales per business day for the quarter were essentially flat to Q2, going from $4.57 million per day to $4.52 million per day for Q3 and were $4.65 and $4.63 million per day, respectively for the months of October and November. The sequential increase in the IPS backlog was great to see and we anticipate the trend to continue. As of September 30, 2021, we had $63.1 million in cash and cash equivalents. The decrease in cash has been primarily driven by our acquisition activity. We have completed three acquisitions since the four at year-end 2020, as well as executing share repurchases to continue to drive value for all of DXP's stakeholders. We are well on our way into diversifying DXP’s end markets while creating stakeholder value. We turned DXP’s sales growth into a $2.31 per share year-over-year improvement in earnings per diluted share or $0.36 in earning per diluted share for the third quarter. Total debt outstanding as of September 30, 2021 was $327.5 million with senior leverage of 3.44:1, well under our covenant of 5.50:1. We remain excited by our sales team’s focus on organic sales growth as well as the contributions from recent acquisitions. The teamwork as well as the overall tone at DXP is moving in the right direction and we look forward to continuing the momentum into fiscal 2022, driving organic and acquisition driven growth."

Financial Strength and Liquidity

Net debt, calculated as total long-term debt, net of cash and cash equivalents, on our balance sheet as of September 30, 2021, was $264.4 million compared to $210.6 million at December 31, 2020. As of September 30, 2021, DXP has approximately $194.0 million in liquidity, consisting of $63.0 million in cash on hand and approximately $131.0 million in availability under our ABL facility.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

DXP supplements reporting of net income with non-GAAP measurements, including EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, non-GAAP net income and net debt. This supplemental information should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the unaudited GAAP measurements. Additional information regarding EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow and non-GAAP net income referred to in this press release are included below under "Unaudited Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Information."

The Company believes EBITDA provides additional information about: (i) operating performance, because it assists in comparing the operating performance of the business, as it removes the impact of non-cash depreciation and amortization expense as well as items not directly resulting from core operations such as interest expense and income taxes and (ii) the performance and the effectiveness of operational strategies. Additionally, EBITDA performance is a component of a measure of the Company’s financial covenants under its credit facility. Furthermore, some investors use EBITDA as a supplemental measure to evaluate the overall operating performance of companies in the industry. Management believes that some investors’ understanding of performance is enhanced by including this non-GAAP financial measure as a reasonable basis for comparing ongoing results of operations. By providing this non-GAAP financial measure, together with a reconciliation from net income, the Company believes it is enhancing investors’ understanding of the business and results of operations, as well as assisting investors in evaluating how well the Company is executing strategic initiatives. Free Cash Flow reconciles to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure of cash flows from operations as provided below. We believe Free Cash Flow is an important liquidity metric because it measures, during a given period, the amount of cash generated that is available to fund acquisitions, make investments, repay debt obligations, repurchase company shares, and for certain other activities.
