EVI Provides Business Update and Reports Results for the Three and Nine-Month Periods Ended March 31, 2020

EVI Industries, Inc. (NYSE American: EVI) (the "Company" or "EVI") announced today results for the nine- and three-month periods ended March 31, 2020. While the COVID-19 pandemic and accompanying economic disruption adversely impacted the Company’s performance, particularly resulting in a deceleration of revenue beginning in March 2020, the Company achieved record gross profit for the three-month period and record revenue, gross profit, and operating cash flows for the nine-month period. These results also reflect the Company’s continued execution of its long-term focused buy-and-build growth strategy, the effectiveness of certain organic growth initiatives, and continued investment towards the modernization and optimization of the Company.

Earnings Conference Call

The Company has provided a pre-recorded earnings conference call including a business update, which can be accessed in the "Investors" section of the Company’s website at www.evi-ind.com or by visiting https://ir.evi-ind.com/message-from-the-ceo.

Balance Sheet

At March 31, 2020, the Company had $26 million of net debt, including approximately $4.0 million of cash and $30 million of borrowings drawn from its credit facility. This represents a $10 million, or a 27%, decrease to net debt as compared to June 30, 2019 and a $3 million, or a 10%, decrease to net debt as compared to December 31, 2019. The strengthening of the Company’s balance sheet was driven by a record level of operating cash flow of $14.3 million for the nine-month period ended March 31, 2020. As a precautionary measure to increase its cash position and preserve financial flexibility in light of uncertainty in the global markets resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, on April 1, 2020, the Company increased its borrowings from its credit facility.

Discussion of COVID-19 Pandemic

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, EVI’s businesses have remained operational as relevant authorities have generally designated the nature of the Company’s industry to be ‘essential’. Early on, the Company’s leaders acted quickly and decisively in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to reduce costs and preserve capital, and they continue to actively monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and may take further actions as circumstances change. Further, the Company accelerated certain of its planned modernization and optimization initiatives, including the elimination and consolidation of facilities, the implementation of certain advanced technology systems, the establishment of certain alternative financing tools, and other initiatives meant to increase growth and profitability. However, the COVID-19 pandemic and specifically stay-at-home-orders, have and continue to create disruption to the economy and the Company’s business and results.

Henry M. Nahmad, EVI’s Chairman and CEO stated, "While the duration and severity of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our business and results is uncertain, as we navigate through these times, we are bolstered by the depth of experience across our organization, our entrepreneurial culture, and the extraordinary dedication and perseverance of our valued employees."

Geographic, Customer, and Product Diversity

The Company operates in a historically resilient industry and its growth strategy and operating model are focused on long-term growth.

Geographic Markets: EVI operates from 24 distribution locations in 14 states and exports to Latin America and the Caribbean from its Florida operations. Across and beyond this geography, the Company employs approximately 125 sales professionals that partner with the Company’s customers by providing planning, designing, and consulting services that generally result in long-term customer relationships.

End-User Customers: Today, EVI completes tens of thousands of transactions per quarter to thousands of customers that operate industrial, on-premise, vended, and or route laundries dedicated to a wide range of end-user customers. These transactions are sourced by the Company’s vast sales organization and are generally supported and fulfilled by the Company’s internal installation and service network including approximately 200 technicians.

Product Range: EVI offers a wide variety of commercial laundry equipment and an assortment of related parts and accessories along with specialized water heating, water treatment, and material handling products sourced from many suppliers. The Company sources commercial laundry equipment from 12 domestic and international OEMs and sells over 25 brand names with a wide variety of price points, features, and capabilities to meet the needs of varying commercial laundry end-user customers.

Mr. Nahmad commented: "We believe that, among other benefits, the combination of geographic and end-user customer diversity, and a broad product range mitigates the risk that a disruption to any one geography, any one end-user customer, and or any one product category can materially impact the entire Company."

Acquisitions

During the three-month period ended March 31, 2020, the Company completed the acquisition of Sevierville, Tennessee based Laundry Systems of Tennessee and affiliates and Richmond, Virginia based Commercial Laundry Equipment, Inc. The newly acquired businesses are distributors of on-premise and vended laundry products and providers of related installation and maintenance services. Their addition expands EVI’s market share and adds additional sales and service presence in the mid-Atlantic and southeast United States.

Three-Month and Nine-Month Operating Results
(compared to the same period of the prior fiscal year)

Three-Month Results

  • Revenue was flat at $59 million,
  • Gross profit increased 3% to a record $13.8 million,
  • Gross margin increased 80 basis points to 23%,
  • Operating income was $0.35 million versus $1.1 million,
  • Net income was $(0.0) million versus $0.5 million, and
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $2.1million versus $2.2 million.

Nine-Month Results

  • Revenue increased 11% to a record $181 million,
  • Gross profit increased 13% to a record $42 million,
  • Gross margin increased 50 basis points to 23%,
  • Operating income was $2.4 million versus $4.6 million,
  • Net income was $0.83 million versus $2.5 million,
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $6.9 million versus $7.8 million, and
  • Operating cash flow was a record $14.3 million, an increase of $24 million in cash provided by operations.

Revenue

The 11% increase in revenue for the nine-month period ended March 31, 2020 was due to the results of operations of acquired businesses and increases in revenue resulting from certain sales growth strategies executed by the Company to increase market share in existing geographies. These increases for the nine-month period were partially offset by a deceleration of revenue beginning in mid-March 2020 resulting from the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the delayed completion of a number of open sales contracts as a result of shelter-in-place orders and other restrictions. This deceleration in revenues contributed to revenues being flat in the three months ended March 31, 2020 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA for the fiscal three-month period ended March 31, 2020 was flat year over year and decreased 12% for the nine-month period ended March 31, 2020 compared to the same period of the prior fiscal year. These results reflect the Company’s ongoing investments to optimize and modernize its acquired businesses and investments made in pursuit of acquisition and strategic opportunities, combined with the unforeseen impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mr. Nahmad commented: "Despite the short-term turbulence caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we remain steadfast in our long-term approach to building a significant enterprise and we believe that favorable industry dynamics combined with our financial principles, decentralized operating model, entrepreneurial culture, and credible reputation are the foundation of our long-term growth and investment strategy."

For additional information regarding the Company’s results for the three and nine-month periods ended March 31, 2020 and further discussion of the COVID-19 pandemic, see the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

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.
