EVI Industries, Inc. (NYSE American: EVI) announced today its results for the six and three-month periods ended December 31, 2018. The results, including record revenues, gross profit, and Adjusted EBITDA, reflect the Company’s consistent execution of its buy-and-build growth strategy.
(compared to the comparable period of the prior fiscal year)

For the six and three-month periods ended December 31, 2018, the increases in revenue and gross profit were primarily due to the results of operations of acquired businesses, including Tri-State Technical Services (which the Company acquired on October 31, 2017), AAdvantage Laundry Systems (which the Company acquired on February 9, 2018), and Scott Equipment (which the Company acquired on September 12, 2018). Operating income for the six and three-month periods ended December 31. 2018 were impacted by increases in operating expenses due in large part to the consolidation of selling, general and administrative expenses of the Company’s acquired businesses and an increase in non-cash amortization expense specifically related to the intangible assets the Company acquired in connection with its acquisitions. Additionally, corporate operating expenses at the parent company level increased in support of the Company’s execution of its buy-and-build growth strategy and as a result of the growth in the Company’s market capitalization. As a result, during the six and three-month periods ended December 31, 2018, operating expenses as a percentage of revenues increased from 18% to 19% and from 17% to 19%, respectively, when compared to the same periods of the prior fiscal year.
Henry M. Nahmad, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of EVI, commented: “We continue to invest in the infrastructure necessary to support our growth engine and we believe that over time, as revenues ramp up, operating expenses as a percentage of revenues will decrease.”
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. Also, under the new accounting standards for revenue recognition adopted by the Company on July 1, 2018, gross profit on delivered, but uninstalled equipment sold under longer-termed contracts is deferred and recognized as installation is completed instead of upon the shipment of equipment.
Acquisition Record and Pipeline
During the six-month period ended December 31, 2018, EVI completed five acquisitions, three of which were completed during the three-month period ended December 31, 2018. EVI believes that it continues to appeal to owners of businesses in the spaces in which EVI operates due to, among other things, EVI’s entrepreneurial culture, decentralized operating model, and long-term growth plans. Further, given EVI’s track record of completing eleven acquisitions since the inception of its buy-and-build growth strategy in 2015, EVI has demonstrated the ability to effectively source, assess, and acquire high-quality businesses that meet its leadership, financial, and strategic criteria. Consequently, EVI believes that there exists a deep pipeline of acquisition and other strategic opportunities available to it.
Henry M. Nahmad, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of EVI, commented: “The EVI family of businesses continues to grow and so do the number and size of quality opportunities we believe to be available to our Company. We have only scratched the surface of what is possible in terms of size, scale, and value creation. Our team continues to exercise patience, persistence, and thoughtful execution in the pursuit of our long-term growth goals and we are excited about our future.”
As previously disclosed, subsequent to the completion of the Company’s second fiscal quarter, the Company completed its acquisition of PAC Industries, Inc. The acquisition of PAC was completed on February 6, 2019 and represents the Company’s first acquisition in the northeast region, where the Company expects to continue to pursue opportunities under its buy-and-build growth strategy.
Special Cash Dividend
During the three-month period ended December 31. 2018, the Company’s Board of Directors approved a special cash dividend of $0.13 per share on EVI’s common stock, an 8.3% increase over EVI’s special cash dividend declared in December 2017. The dividend was paid on January 8, 2019 to stockholders of record at the close of business on December 26, 2018.
New Credit Facility
As previously disclosed, on November 5, 2018, the Company entered into a new five-year, $100 million syndicated revolving credit facility with Bank of America and US Bank as joint lead arrangers, which at EVI’s option, can expand commitments in the revolver to $140 million in the aggregate. The Company believes that its cash on hand and capital available under the new credit facility provides the Company with the necessary resources to execute on its growth opportunities and initiatives.
During December 2018, the Company’s Board of Directors approved changing the Company’s corporate name from “EnviroStar, Inc.” to “EVI Industries, Inc.” The name change, which was effected on December 21, 2018, signifies the Company’s focus on executing its buy-and-build growth strategy in the commercial, industrial, and vended laundry industry and across a group of industries that meet its strategic criteria.
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.
