SUGAR LAND, Texas, June 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Team, Inc. (TISI), a global leading provider of integrated, digitally-enabled asset performance assurance and optimization solutions, today reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

Amerino Gatti, Team’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said “Our first quarter results were noticeably impacted by adverse market conditions. Activity was negatively affected by the unprecedented economic crisis triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic as well as volatility in commodity prices driven by oil and gas supply/demand imbalance. Many of our clients reprioritized their operations, resulting in scope reductions on certain ongoing work, deferrals or suspensions of maintenance projects, and cuts in capital spend.

“In response, during the last few weeks of March, we implemented decisive and aggressive actions that delivered more than $5 million of savings in the first quarter. We reduced variable costs, scaled the business to support the current environment and accelerated the next phase of our OneTEAM program. These actions are estimated to generate a total savings of $20-25 million in the second quarter.

“I am pleased that we completed an amendment and extension to our credit facility in the second quarter, which provides us operational flexibility and enhanced liquidity through the recovery period and supports our future growth. We remain committed to our financial priorities of conserving cash, paying down debt and protecting our balance sheet.

“As part of the critical and essential services network and in close collaboration with our clients, TEAM supports the performance, efficiency, and longevity of aging assets and ensures compliance with standards and regulations. In addition, we are focused on diversifying into markets and industries that are experiencing less disruption. We expect to lead the recovery by leveraging our three segments, engineering and manufacturing capabilities, our array of integrated solutions and the continued technological advancement of our digital strategy.

“We cannot underestimate the long road ahead during this challenging and dynamic period. I am proud of our experienced and knowledgeable leadership team for quickly executing our playbooks and ensuring the wellbeing and safety of our employees and their families, our clients and the community. I would like to especially thank TEAM’s technicians on the front lines who have continued to provide essential and exceptional services to our valued clients.

“Notwithstanding the ongoing effects of the pandemic, we will continue to make disciplined decisions to move the business in the right direction and are confident in TEAM’s performance and potential, as well as our ability to achieve our long-term strategic targets,” concluded Mr. Gatti.

Consolidated net loss in the first quarter of 2020 was $199.7 million ($6.54 loss per diluted share) compared to net loss of $24.2 million ($0.80 loss per diluted share) in the first quarter of 2019. Adjusted net loss, a non-GAAP measure, was $18.0 million, or $0.59 adjusted net loss per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2020 compared to adjusted net loss of $19.8 million, or $0.66 adjusted net loss per diluted share, for the same quarter in 2019. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, was negative $3.9 million for the first quarter of 2020 compared to a positive $3.8 million for the prior year quarter. (See the accompanying reconciliation of non-GAAP measures at the end of this earnings release.)

Consolidated revenues for the first quarter of 2020 were $236.8 million compared to $269.6 million in the prior year quarter. Revenue decreased due to lower activity levels in our Inspection and Heat Treating (“IHT”) and Mechanical Services (“MS”) segments, partially offset by higher activity levels in the Quest Integrity segment. In the first quarter, consolidated gross margin was $57.5 million, or 24.3%, compared with 24.5% in the same quarter a year ago.

SG&A for the first quarter was $78.4 million, down $3.8 million, or a 4.6% improvement from the first quarter of 2019. The Company’s adjusted measure of operating loss, Adjusted EBIT, was $17.2 million in the first quarter compared to $11.0 million in the prior year comparable quarter.

First quarter 2020 reported results include certain net charges not indicative of Team’s core operating activities, including: $191.8 million goodwill impairment charge for IHT, $2.0 million of costs related to the OneTEAM program (inclusive of restructuring costs), $1.3 million of legal costs and $0.7 million of certain professional fees and other non-recurring costs. Net of tax, these items totaled $181.7 million ($5.95 per diluted share).

Adjusted net income or loss, Adjusted EBIT, Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain items that are not indicative of Team’s core operating activities. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures is at the end of this release.

_________________

1  Includes goodwill impairment charge of $191.8 million for IHT for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

2  NM - Not meaningful.

Quest Integrity continued its strong revenue growth and increases in operating income with a 16.3% year-over-year improvement in revenue and a 271.4% increase in operating income. Quest Integrity’s performance is primarily the result of increased demand for Quest Integrity’s proprietary services and tools.

Decreased activity levels in IHT and MS were due to volumes being negatively impacted by weather disruptions and lower non-recurring projects at the start of the year. Towards the latter part of the quarter, the outbreak of COVID-19 and decline in oil prices resulted in certain clients temporarily closing facilities and/or curtailing operations, resulting in the postponement of client projects and lower demand for the Company’s services.

Cash and Debt

Consolidated cash and cash equivalents were $20.5 million at March 31, 2020. The Company was in compliance with its bank covenants at March 31, 2020. The Company’s net debt (total debt less cash and cash equivalents) was $324.8 million at March 31, 2020, compared to $313.1 million at December 31, 2019.

Non-Cash Goodwill Impairment Charge

During the first quarter of 2020, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, decline in crude oil prices driven by the oil and gas supply-demand imbalance and the decrease in the Company’s stock price was deemed to be a triggering event, requiring the Company to perform an interim assessment. As a result, the Company recognized a non-cash goodwill impairment charge during the three months ended March 31, 2020 of $191.8 million for the IHT segment. On an after-tax basis, this was $178.6 million, or $5.85 per diluted share. This non-cash charge had no other impact on the Company’s ongoing operations.

Credit Agreement Amendment and Extension

Effective June 17, 2020, the Company executed an amendment and extension of its senior secured credit facility to gain additional covenant flexibility. The Company extended the maturity of its credit facility through January 15, 2022 and reduced the revolving credit line to a maximum of $200 million, ensuring an expected adequate level of liquidity to fund the business.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The non-GAAP measures in this earnings release are provided to enable investors, analysts and management to evaluate Team’s performance excluding the effects of certain items that management believes impact the comparability of operating results between reporting periods. These measures should be used in addition to, and not in lieu of, results prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). A reconciliation of each of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable historical GAAP financial measure is contained in the accompanying schedule for each of the fiscal periods indicated.

TEAM, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Unaudited)

The Company uses supplemental non-GAAP financial measures which are derived from the consolidated financial information including adjusted net income (loss); adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share, earnings before interest and taxes (“EBIT”); adjusted EBIT (defined below); adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“adjusted EBITDA”) and free cash flow to supplement financial information presented on a GAAP basis. Adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share, each as defined by the Company, exclude the following items from net income (loss): costs associated with our OneTEAM transformation program, acquisition costs associated with business combinations, legal costs associated with Quest Integrity patent defense litigation and non-routine legal costs and settlements, professional fees for acquired business integration, restructuring and other related charges (credits), executive severance/transition costs, non-capitalized Enterprise Resource Planning (“ERP”) implementation costs, goodwill impairment charge and certain other items that management does not believe are indicative of core operating activities and the related income tax impacts. EBIT, as defined by the Company, excludes income tax expense (benefit), interest charges and items of other (income) expense and therefore is equal to operating income (loss) reported in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBIT further excludes the following items: costs associated with our OneTEAM transformation program, acquisition costs associated with business combinations, legal costs associated with Quest Integrity patent defense litigation and non-routine legal costs and settlements, professional fees for acquired business integration, restructuring and other related charges (credits), executive severance/transition costs, non-capitalized ERP implementation costs, goodwill impairment charge and certain other items that management does not believe are indicative of core operating activities. Adjusted EBITDA further excludes from adjusted EBIT depreciation, amortization and non-cash share-based compensation costs. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities minus capital expenditures. Net debt is defined as the sum of the current and long-term portions of debt, less cash and cash equivalents.

Management believes that excluding certain items from GAAP results allows management to better understand the consolidated financial performance from period to period and to better identify operating trends that may not otherwise be apparent. Moreover, the Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures will provide its stakeholders with useful information to help them evaluate operating performance. However, there are limitations to the use of the non-GAAP financial measures presented in this report. The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies who may calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently than Team does, limiting the usefulness of those measures for comparative purposes. The liquidity measure of free cash flow does not represent a precise calculation of residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures.

The non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered as indicators of performance in isolation from or as a substitute for net income (loss) as a measure of operating performance or to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity, prepared in accordance with GAAP, and should be read only in conjunction with financial information presented on a GAAP basis. Reconciliations of each non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure are presented below. You are encouraged to review the reconciliations in conjunction with the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures for each of the periods presented.
