ACHESON, Alberta, July 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- North American Construction Group Ltd. (“NACG”) (TSX:NOA/NYSE:NOA) today announced results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022. Unless otherwise indicated, financial figures are expressed in Canadian dollars, and comparisons are to the prior period ended June 30, 2021.

Second Quarter 2022 Highlights:

  • Revenue was $168.0 million, up from $139.3 million in the same period last year. The majority of this quarter-over-quarter positive variance was based on a full quarter of operations at the Fort Hills mine. In addition, DGI Trading Pty Ltd ("DGI"), acquired in Q3 2021, and sales of ultra-class trucks generated positive variances. Top-line revenue was again impacted by shortages in heavy equipment technicians required to maintain the equipment which is directly correlated to equipment availability and utilization.

  • Combined revenue of $228.0 million represented a $52.0 million (or 30%) increase as our share of revenue generated in Q2 2022 by joint ventures and affiliates was $59.9 million compared to $36.6 million in Q2 2021. Nuna Group of Companies achieved another strong quarter driven by activity at the gold mine in Northern Ontario while the Mikisew North American Limited Partnership ultra-class haul trucks and the joint ventures dedicated to the Fargo-Moorhead flood diversion project were the drivers of quarter-over-quarter improvements.

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $41.6 million represents a $0.7 million decrease over the prior year and reflects difficult operating challenges primarily related to the aforementioned vacancies of heavy equipment technician roles. Other challenges were primarily related to inflation including i) higher costs experienced on site from supplier and vendor price increases and ii) the delayed timing impact of equipment rate escalations which lag based on published index values. When comparing to Q2 2021, the Canadian Emergency Wage Subsidy ("CEWS") program, which concluded in Q4 2021, was a factor in quarter-over-quarter margin comparisons. Slightly offsetting the challenges in the quarter were the strong margins realized from parts and component sales made by DGI as well as the profitable sales of ultra-class trucks made during the quarter.

  • Gross profit was $12.4 million with a 7.4% gross profit margin, down from gross profit of $14.5 million and 10.4% gross profit margin in the same period last year. The primary drivers of this negative variance were the aforementioned operational impacts related to shortages in heavy equipment technicians, the inflation drivers discussed above and the discontinued CEWS program.

  • Free cash flow ("FCF") in the quarter was positive $10.4 million as adjusted EBITDA generated $41.6 million, detailed above, and when netted against sustaining capital additions ($22.3 million) and cash interest paid ($5.8 million) produced positive cash of $13.5 million and translated well into overall free cash flow.

  • On April 6, 2022, we announced a Normal Course Issuer Bid ("NCIB") to purchase, for cancellation, up to 2,113,054 common shares. This represented approximately 7.1% of the issued and outstanding common shares as of March 31, 2022. This NCIB commenced on April 11, 2022 and will terminate no later than April 10, 2023.

NACG President and CEO, Joe Lambert, commented: "Despite the growth we experienced in revenue, the second quarter of 2022 was challenging for our organization as we battled several factors outside of our direct control. In response, we have been busy executing our mitigation plans and are witnessing results starting in late Q2 in reduced skilled trade vacancies and improved equipment utilization."

Mr. Lambert added: "We are confident in our long-standing customer relationships and the skills of our corporate and operations teams to progress through these near-term inflationary pressures and skilled labour shortages to achieve prompt, effective outcomes. We are likewise confident and excited for the future based on our backlog, bid pipeline, growing industry and indigenous partnerships, commodity and geographic diversification, commitment to safety, and ingrained low-cost culture."

Declaration of Quarterly Dividend

On July 26th, 2022, the NACG Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly dividend (the “Dividend”) of eight Canadian cents ($0.08) per common share, payable to common shareholders of record at the close of business on August 31, 2022. The Dividend will be paid on October 7, 2022 and is an eligible dividend for Canadian income tax purposes.

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2022

Revenue of $168.0 million represented a $28.7 million (or 21%) increase from Q2 2021. The remobilization of fleet at the Fort Hills mine and revenue earned by DGI Trading Pty Ltd. ("DGI"), which was acquired on July 1, 2021, were the primary drivers of the quarter-over-quarter increase. A secondary driver which contributed approximately 5% of the overall positive variance was the sale of rebuilt ultra-class trucks to the Mikisew North American Limited Partnership ("MNALP") that took place during the quarter. Operating utilization in the quarter of 59% was higher than Q2 2021 of 52% but lower than management expectation. It is estimated again that between $15 and $20 million of revenue in the quarter was deferred as a result of heavy equipment technician vacancies which was the key factor among many in the overall equipment utilization achieved in the quarter.

Combined revenue of $228.0 million represented a $52.0 million (or 30%) increase from Q2 2021. Our share of revenue generated in Q2 2022 by joint ventures and affiliates was $59.9 million compared to $36.6 million in Q2 2021 (an increase of 64%). Nuna Group of Companies again achieved another strong quarter of top-line performance driven by the activity at the gold mine in Northern Ontario and was the primary driver of the increase. Secondary drivers of the increase in combined revenue include: i) the top-line revenue impacts the rebuilt ultra-class haul trucks now owned by MNALP, ii) the increasing throughput of the component rebuild programs managed and performed by the Brake Supply North American joint venture, and lastly iii) the recently formed joint ventures dedicated to the Fargo-Moorhead flood diversion project. The ground-breaking ceremony is scheduled for early August and initial earthworks in the Fargo-Moorhead region is scheduled to commence in mid to late Q3 2022.

Adjusted EBITDA of $41.6 million was a decrease from the Q2 2021 result of $42.4 million reflecting difficult and problematic operating challenges in the quarter primarily related to the aforementioned vacancies of heavy equipment technician roles. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 18.3% reflected these challenges along with inflation drivers including i) higher costs experienced on site from supplier & vendor price increases and ii) the delayed timing impact of equipment rate escalations which lag based on published index values. When comparing to Q2 2021, the Canadian Emergency Wage Subsidy ("CEWS") program, which concluded in Q4 2021, was a factor in quarter-over-quarter comparisons. Slightly offsetting these margins challenges in the quarter were the higher margins realized from parts and component sales made by DGI as well as the profitable sales of ultra-class trucks made during the quarter.

General and administrative expenses (excluding stock-based compensation) were $6.9 million, or 4.1% of revenue, compared to $6.0 million, or 4.3% of revenue and were considered stable for the quarter. Cash related interest expense for the quarter was $5.3 million at an average cost of debt of 5.2% compared to 4.0% in Q2 2021 as posted interest rates have increased noticeably over the past twelve months.

Adjusted EPS of $0.17 on adjusted net earnings of $4.7 million is 45% down from the prior year figure of $0.31 and is correlated with adjusted EBITDA performance as depreciation, tax and interest tracked as expected. Weighted-average common shares outstanding for the second quarters of 2022 and 2021 were stable at 27,968,510 and 28,077,514, respectively, as the majority of share cancellations in Q2 2022 occurred late in the quarter. For reference, the quarter ended with 27,314,372 common shares issued and outstanding.

Free cash flow was $10.4 million in the quarter as adjusted EBITDA generated $41.6 million, detailed above, and when netted against sustaining capital additions ($22.3 million) and cash interest paid ($5.8 million) produced positive cash of $13.5 million and translated well into overall free cash flow. Changes in working capital balances as well as the cash managed within the various joint venture did not have a significant overall impact in the quarter. That said, the ultra-class rebuild program notably reduced work-in-progress inventories by $9.7 million in the quarter as commissioning and sale of certain units occurred during the second quarter.

Basis of Presentation

We have prepared our consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("US GAAP"). Unless otherwise specified, all dollar amounts discussed are in Canadian dollars. Please see the Management’s Discussion and Analysis (“MD&A”) for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 for further detail on the matters discussed in this release. In addition to the MD&A, please reference the dedicated Q2 2022 Results Presentation for more information on our results and projections which can be found on our website under Investors - Presentations.

Forward-Looking Information

The information provided in this release contains forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include statements preceded by, followed by or that include the words “anticipate”, “believe”, “expect”, “should” or similar expressions.

The material factors or assumptions used to develop the above forward-looking statements and the risks and uncertainties to which such forward-looking statements are subject, are highlighted in the MD&A for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022. Actual results could differ materially from those contemplated by such forward-looking statements because of any number of factors and uncertainties, many of which are beyond NACG’s control. Undue reliance should not be placed upon forward-looking statements and NACG undertakes no obligation, other than those required by applicable law, to update or revise those statements. For more complete information about NACG, please read our disclosure documents filed with the SEC and the CSA. These free documents can be obtained by visiting EDGAR on the SEC website at www.sec.gov or on the CSA website at www.sedar.com.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release presents certain non-GAAP financial measures because management believes that they may be useful to investors in analyzing our business performance, leverage and liquidity. The non-GAAP financial measures we present include "gross profit", "adjusted net earnings", "adjusted EBIT", "equity investment EBIT", "adjusted EBITDA", "equity investment depreciation and amortization", "adjusted EPS", "margin", "liquidity", "net debt", "senior debt", "sustaining capital", "growth capital", "cash provided by operating activities prior to change in working capital" and "free cash flow". A non-GAAP financial measure is defined by relevant regulatory authorities as a numerical measure of an issuer's historical or future financial performance, financial position or cash flow that is not specified, defined or determined under the issuer’s GAAP and that is not presented in an issuer’s financial statements. These non-GAAP measures do not have any standardized meaning and therefore are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. They should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Each non-GAAP financial measure used in this press release is defined and reconciled to its most directly comparable GAAP measure in the “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section of our Management’s Discussion and Analysis filed concurrently with this press release.
