EnviroStar, Inc. (NYSE American: EVI) (“EVI” or the “Company”) reported record results for the first quarter of its fiscal year ending June 30, 2019. The record results reflect the Company’s consistent execution of its buy-and-build growth strategy.
Q1 of Fiscal 2019 Highlights (compared to EVI’s results for the first quarter of the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018):
- Revenue increased 65% to a record $43.4 million,
- Gross margin dollars increased 58% to a record $9.7 million,
- Gross margin, as a percentage of revenue, was lower by 1.0% due to product mix,
- Operating income increased 46% to a record $1.4 million,
- Net income increased 41% to a record $0.8 million, and
- Adjusted EBITDA increased 53% to a record $2.4 million.
The improvement in the Company’s performance during the first quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2018 is due primarily to the results of Tri-State Technical Services, Inc. (“Tri-State”), which was acquired by EVI during the second quarter of fiscal 2018, and AAdvantage Laundry Systems, Inc. (“AAdvantage”) and Sky-Rent LP (“Sky-Rent”), which were acquired by EVI during the third quarter of fiscal 2018. In addition, as described in further detail below, EVI acquired two additional companies, Industrial Laundry Services, Inc. and Scott Equipment, Inc., during September 2018, and EVI’s results for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 include less than a month of results of those companies. EVI also acquired Washington Automated, Inc. following the completion of the first quarter of fiscal 2019. The increases in revenue and gross margin dollars during the first quarter of fiscal 2019 were partially offset by increases in SG&A, which primarily reflect increases to corporate level expenses in connection with EVI’s growth and in support of the execution of EVI’s buy-and-build growth strategy.
During the first quarter of fiscal 2019, EVI continued the execution of its buy-and-build growth strategy through the addition of Industrial Laundry Services, an Orlando-based business, which EVI acquired on September 4, 2018, and Scott Equipment, a Houston-based business, which EVI acquired on September 12, 2018. As previously announced, it is expected that the addition of Industrial Laundry Services will bolster the service capabilities of EVI’s Florida operations and that the addition of Scott Equipment will substantially increase EVI’s market share in Texas. In addition, subsequent to the completion of the first quarter of fiscal 2019, EVI completed the acquisition of Washington Automated, a Seattle-based business, and entered into definitive agreements to purchase Worldwide Laundry, Inc., a Miami-based business, and Skyline Equipment, Inc., a Houston-based business.
In addition to the acquisitions described above, EVI’s leadership teams have undertaken growth initiatives, including the addition of new product lines, the enhancement of installation and service capabilities, and the implementation of scalable technologies. EVI believes that these growth initiatives may have a positive impact on the Company’s future performance. To lead and fulfill these and other growth initiatives, EVI successfully recruited, and continues to recruit, talented and long-term focused professionals.
During the quarter the Company entered into a new five-year, $100 million syndicated credit facility with Bank of America and US Bank as joint lead arrangers, and Fifth Third Bank. The new credit facility includes a $100 million revolving line of credit and an accordion feature, which at EVI’s option, can expand commitments in the revolver to $140 million in the aggregate. The new credit facility replaces the existing $27 million asset-based credit facility with Wells Fargo that was scheduled to mature in October 2021.
Henry M. Nahmad, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of EVI, commented: “EVI delivered another record quarter with strong sales in the industrial, commercial, and vended segments of the laundry industry. While our existing operating subsidiaries and their management teams remain focused on building their businesses, we also added important businesses in key markets, resulting in increased market share and further strengthening the depth, experience, and capabilities of our sales and service organizations. EVI continues to aggressively pursue buy-and-build growth opportunities in and around the laundry industry with a long-term goal of building a national enterprise.”
It is important to note that the timing of revenue recognition related to the sale and installation of commercial, industrial, and vended laundry products are occasionally impacted by delays related to installation schedules.
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
In this press release, EVI discloses the non-GAAP financial measure of Adjusted EBITDA, which EVI defines as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, and amortization of share-based compensation. Adjusted EBITDA is determined by adding interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, and amortization of share-based compensation to net income as shown in the attached Condensed Consolidated Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, Amortization, and Amortization of Share-based Compensation. EVI considers Adjusted EBITDA to be an important indicator of its operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA is also used by companies, lenders, investors and others because it excludes certain items that can vary widely across different industries or among companies within the same industry. For example, interest expense can be dependent on a company’s capital structure, debt levels and credit ratings, and the tax positions of companies can vary because of their differing abilities to take advantage of tax benefits and because of the tax policies of the jurisdictions in which they operate. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity, including cash flow, derived in accordance with GAAP, or to any other method of analyzing EVI’s results as reported under GAAP. In addition, EVI’s definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to definitions of Adjusted EBITDA or other similarly titled measures used by other companies.
EnviroStar, Inc., through its wholly-owned subsidiaries, is a distributor that sells, leases, and rents commercial, industrial, and vended laundry and dry cleaning equipment and steam and hot water boilers manufactured by others, supplies related replacement parts and accessories, designs and plans turn-key laundry, dry cleaning, and boiler systems, and provides installation and maintenance services to thousands of customers, which include commercial, industrial, institutional, government, and retail customers. These activities are conducted in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean and Latin America.
