EMCOR Group, Inc. (NYSE:EME) today reported results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

For the second quarter of 2020, we reported a net loss of $83.7 million, or $(1.52) per diluted share, compared to net income of $84.0 million, or $1.49 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2019. The net loss for the second quarter of 2020 included after-tax goodwill, identifiable intangible asset, and other long-lived asset impairment charges, primarily related to our U.S. Industrial Services segment. Excluding these impairment charges, non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2020 was $79.2 million, or $1.44 per diluted share. Revenues for the second quarter of 2020 totaled $2.01 billion, a decrease of 13.3%, compared to $2.32 billion for the second quarter of 2019.

We reported an operating loss for the second quarter of 2020 of $122.6 million, representing an operating margin of (6.1)%, which included pre-tax impairment charges of $232.8 million, compared to operating income of $120.0 million, representing an operating margin of 5.2%, for the second quarter of 2019. Excluding such pre-tax impairment charges, non-GAAP operating income for the second quarter of 2020 was $110.1 million, representing a non-GAAP operating margin of 5.5%.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the second quarter of 2020 totaled $205.2 million, or 10.2% of revenues, representing a decrease of $21.1 million compared to selling, general and administrative expenses of $226.2 million, or 9.7% of revenues, for the second quarter of 2019.

Please see the attached tables for a reconciliation of non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to the comparable GAAP measures.

The Company's income tax rate for the second quarter of 2020 was (32.5)%, which compares to an income tax rate of 28.3% for the second quarter of 2019.

Remaining performance obligations as of June 30, 2020 were $4.59 billion compared to $4.23 billion as of June 30, 2019. Total U.S. remaining performance obligations grew approximately $346 million year-over-year.

Tony Guzzi, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of EMCOR, commented, "We demonstrated excellent execution during these unprecedented times, and our second quarter performance reflects the rapid and decisive implementation of our contingency plans. Despite year-over-year revenue declines across each of our segments, we delivered non-GAAP operating income of $110.1 million and a strong non-GAAP operating margin of 5.5%, underscoring our ability to perform in almost any environment as well as our diligent cost control. Our efforts drove record operating cash flow generation of $276.7 million in the first six months of 2020, which represents an increase of over $300 million compared to the same period in 2019. Even as we and our customers navigate the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the economy, our remaining performance obligations continue to grow, up 8.6% year-over-year and 3.8% sequentially, demonstrating the resiliency of our business and the underlying demand for our services in the marketplace."

Mr. Guzzi added, "Our U.S. Construction segments continue to anchor our performance, with operating income growth of 1.4% year-over-year and a robust operating margin of 8.0%, up 100 basis points year-over-year. This was primarily driven by our U.S. Mechanical Construction segment, which posted operating income growth of 24.1% year-over-year and an impressive operating margin of 8.5%, up 190 basis points year-over-year. Additionally, our U.S. Electrical Construction segment delivered a healthy operating margin of 7.2% despite the significant impact of mandated shutdowns on our revenues in the quarter. Led by our mobile mechanical and government services businesses, our U.S. Building Services segment reported an operating margin of 5.6%, up 30 basis points year-over-year. During the second quarter, we recorded a significant impairment charge primarily related to our U.S. Industrial Services segment, which is operating in a challenging environment as its customers grapple with the dual impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing volatility in the oil and gas market. We will continue to leverage our leadership position and take advantage of available opportunities. However, we do not anticipate much improvement in this segment through the remainder of the year. Lastly, our U.K. Building Services segment generated an operating margin of 5.7%, up 80 basis points year-over-year, as it continues to execute well across its diversified customer base."

Revenues for the first six months of 2020 totaled $4.31 billion, a decrease of 3.8%, compared to $4.48 billion for the first six months of 2019. We reported a net loss for the first six months of 2020 of $8.0 million, or $(0.14) per diluted share, compared to net income of $156.4 million, or $2.77 per diluted share, for the first six months of 2019. Excluding the impact of the previously referenced impairment charges recorded in the second quarter of 2020, non-GAAP net income for the first six months of 2020 was $154.9 million, or $2.78 per diluted share.

For the first six months of 2020, we reported an operating loss of $16.6 million, representing an operating margin of (0.4)%, compared to operating income of $222.3 million, representing an operating margin of 5.0%, for the first six months of 2019. Excluding the previously referenced $232.8 million non-cash impairment charge recorded in the second quarter, non-GAAP operating income for the first six months of 2020 was $216.1 million, representing a non-GAAP operating margin of 5.0%. SG&A totaled $432.2 million, or 10.0% of revenues, for the first six months of 2020 compared to $432.4 million, or 9.6% of revenues, for the first six months of 2019.

Please see the attached tables for a reconciliation of non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to the comparable GAAP measures.

Based on year-to-date performance, current operating conditions and visibility into the remainder of the year, EMCOR expects full-year 2020 revenues to be between $8.6 billion and $8.7 billion, and full-year 2020 non-GAAP diluted earnings per share in the range of $5.00 to $5.50.

Mr. Guzzi concluded, "I would like to thank the entire EMCOR team for their hard work as we navigate the impacts of COVID-19 and continue to safely and effectively serve our customers in this environment. During the quarter, we remained focused on the elements of our business in our control, protecting the health and safety of our employees, and adjusting our operations as necessary in a disciplined and process-oriented manner. Our guidance for the remainder of the year is contingent on the environment remaining relatively consistent to where we stand today, as well as no widespread shutdowns, such as those that we experienced earlier this year. Our growing remaining performance obligations, combined with the actions we’ve taken to improve productivity and streamline our operations, as well as our solid financial position, will allow us to deliver value for our shareholders during this crisis and beyond."

Forward Looking Statements:

This release contains certain forward-looking statements. Any such comments speak only as of August 3, 2020 and EMCOR assumes no obligation to update any such forward-looking statements, unless required by law. These forward-looking statements may include statements regarding anticipated future operating and financial performance, the nature and impact of our remaining performance obligations, our ability to pursue acquisitions, our ability to return capital to shareholders, market opportunities, market growth and customer trends. These forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated (whether expressly or implied) by the forward-looking statements. Accordingly, these statements are no guarantee of future performance. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, adverse effects of general economic conditions, changes in the political environment, changes in the specific markets for EMCOR’s services, adverse business conditions, availability of adequate levels of surety bonding, increased competition, unfavorable labor productivity, mix of business, the impact of the 2020 ransomware attack, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our revenue and operations, including employees, construction activity, and facilities utilization, and the risk factors associated with EMCOR’s business discussed in Part I, Item 1A "Risk Factors," of the Company’s 2019 Form 10-K, in Part II, Item 1A "Risk Factors," of the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2020, and in other reports filed from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission and available at www.sec.gov and www.emcorgroup.com.

Non-GAAP Measures:

This release also includes certain financial measures that were not prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Reconciliations of those non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in this release. The Company uses these non-GAAP measures as key performance indicators for the purpose of evaluating performance internally. We also believe that these non-GAAP measures provide investors with useful information with respect to our on-going operations. Any non-GAAP financial measures presented are not, and should not be viewed as, substitutes for financial measures required by GAAP, have no standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and may not be comparable to the calculation of similar measures of other companies.

In addition, forecast non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for full-year 2020 is a forward-looking non-GAAP financial measure. The Company does not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP on a forward-looking basis because it is unable to provide such reconciliations without unreasonable effort, due to the uncertainty and inherent difficulty of predicting the occurrence and the financial impact of items such as impairment charges that impact comparability and the periods in which such items may be recognized. For the same reasons, the Company is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could be material to future results.
