HOUSTON, Feb. 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IES Holdings, Inc. (or “IES” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: IESC) today announced financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2020. First Quarter 2021 Highlights Revenue of $315 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2021, an increase of 14% compared with $276 million for the same quarter of fiscal 2020 Operating income of $15.9 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2021, an increase of 28% compared with $12.4 million for the same quarter of fiscal 2020 Net income attributable to IES increased 42% to $12.1 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2021, compared with $8.5 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, for the same quarter of fiscal 2020 Adjusted net income attributable to IES (a non-GAAP financial measure, as defined below) increased 31% to $14.8 million, or $0.71 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2021, compared with $11.3 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, for the same quarter of fiscal 2020 Remaining performance obligations, a GAAP measure of future revenue to be recognized from current contracts with customers, of approximately $525 million as of December 31, 2020 Backlog (a non-GAAP financial measure, as defined below) of approximately $632 million as of December 31, 2020 Overview of Results "Despite the ongoing challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are pleased with our overall results for the first quarter of fiscal 2021, as demand for our services remained strong,” said Jeffrey Gendell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Entering the new fiscal year, our top priorities remain the safety and health of our employees and serving the needs of our customers in what continues to be a challenging environment. While the pandemic continues to add uncertainty to our operations, we believe we are well positioned to meet these challenges and continue to grow the business. "Consolidated revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 increased 14% over the prior year, led by significant growth in our Communications and Residential businesses, as well as the acquisition of businesses in our Residential and Infrastructure Solutions segments. Excluding the contribution of businesses acquired subsequent to the first quarter of fiscal 2020, our revenue increased 7% for the first quarter of fiscal 2021. Operating income for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 increased 28% over the prior year, despite the impact of rapidly escalating copper and other commodity prices, as well as higher prices for certain electrical component products used in our business." For the first quarter of fiscal 2021, the Communications segment reported revenue of $98.4 million, a 17% increase from the first quarter of fiscal 2020, driven primarily by increased demand from data center and distribution center customers, while operating income increased 31% to $9.2 million. Reflecting strong demand in the single-family housing market, as well as the contribution of businesses acquired subsequent to the first quarter of fiscal 2020, the Residential segment's revenue was $119.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2021, an increase of 29% compared with the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The Residential segment’s operating income was $6.2 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2021, a decrease of 3% compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2020, as higher commodity and component prices offset the benefits of increased revenue. Revenue in the Infrastructure Solutions segment increased 10% to $34.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2020, reflecting the impact of businesses acquired subsequent to the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The segment’s operating income increased 63% to $5.3 million compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2020, primarily as a result of improved margins in our custom power solutions business and the impact of businesses acquired subsequent to the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The Commercial & Industrial segment reported revenue of $62.6 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2021, a decline of 8% compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The segment reported an operating loss of $0.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2021, compared with a loss of $0.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2020. Although the business has adjusted its cost structure in response to a highly competitive market, it continues to experience inefficiencies on certain projects and be affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in delays in awarding new projects and decreased demand for new construction in certain sectors we serve. Tracy McLauchlin, Chief Financial Officer, added, “We generated $20 million of operating cash flow during the first quarter of fiscal 2021 and ended the quarter with a cash balance, net of outstanding debt, of $13 million, after investing an aggregate of $55 million in the three previously announced acquisitions completed during the quarter, K.E.P. Electric, Inc., Wedlake Fabricating, Inc. and Bayonet Plumbing, Heating and Air-Conditioning, LLC. We believe that our strong balance sheet provides us with a solid financial foundation to navigate through this uncertain environment and leaves us well positioned to execute our growth strategy in fiscal 2021.” Stock Buyback PlanIn 2015, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized and announced a stock repurchase program for purchasing up to 1.5 million shares of our common stock from time to time, and on May 2, 2019, authorized the repurchase of up to an additional 1.0 million shares. During the quarter ended December 31, 2020, the Company did not repurchase any shares under this program. The Company had 993,825 shares remaining under its stock repurchase authorization at December 31, 2020. Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other AdjustmentsThis press release includes adjusted net income attributable to IES, adjusted earnings per share attributable to IES, and backlog, and, in the non-GAAP reconciliation tables included herein, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income before taxes, each of which is a financial measure not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. (“GAAP”). Management believes that these measures provide useful information to our investors by, in the case of adjusted net income attributable to IES, adjusted earnings per share attributable to IES, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income before taxes, distinguishing certain nonrecurring events such as litigation settlements or significant expenses associated with leadership changes, or noncash events, such as impairment charges or our valuation allowances release and write-down of our deferred tax assets, or, in the case of backlog, providing a common measurement used in IES's industry, as described further below, and that these measures, when reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP measures, help our investors to better identify underlying trends in the operations of our business and facilitate easier comparisons of our financial performance with prior and future periods and to our peers. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information calculated in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, which has been provided in the financial tables included in this press release. Remaining performance obligations represent the unrecognized revenue value of our contract commitments. While backlog is not a defined term under GAAP, it is a common measurement used in IES’s industry and IES believes this non-GAAP measure enables it to more effectively forecast its future results and better identify future operating trends that may not otherwise be apparent. IES’s remaining performance obligations are a component of IES’s backlog calculation, which also includes signed agreements and letters of intent which we do not have a legal right to enforce prior to work starting. These arrangements are excluded from remaining performance obligations until work begins. IES’s methodology for determining backlog may not be comparable to the methodologies used by other companies.
