Orion Group Holdings, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2016 Results; Reiterates Full Year 2016 Guidance

HOUSTON, Aug. 04, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Orion Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:ORN) (the “Company”), a leading specialty construction company, today reported a net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2016, of $0.8 million ($0.03 diluted loss per share).  These results compare to a net loss of $1.8 million ($0.07 diluted loss per share) for the same period a year ago.

Consolidated Results for the Second Quarter of 2016

  • Second quarter 2016 contract revenue was $140.3 million, an increase of 63.0%, as compared to second quarter 2015 revenue of $86.1 million, primarily as a result of the addition of TAS Commercial Concrete (TAS), partially offset by slower production due to adverse weather in Texas, as well as the timing and mix of projects.
  • Gross profit for the second quarter 2016 was $16.9 million, or a gross profit margin of 12.1%, an increase of approximately $10.9 million as compared to the second quarter 2015.
  • Selling, General and Administrative (SG&A) expenses for the second quarter 2016 were $16.9 million as compared to $8.8 million in the prior year period, an increase of $8.1 million, or 92.1%. The increase in SG&A is primarily attributable to the addition of TAS as well as one-time expenses related to management structure changes.
  • Second quarter 2016 EBITDA was $8.9 million, representing a 6.4% EBITDA margin which compares to second quarter 2015 pro forma EBITDA of $7.0 million, or a 5.1% EBITDA margin (EBITDA and EBITDA margin are non-GAAP measures, defined on Page 3 of this release; reconciliation tables are provided on pages 7-8).
  • Backlog of work under contract as of June 30, 2016, was approximately $368 million, excluding approximately $101 million of work on which the Company is the apparent low bidder, or has been awarded subsequent to the end of the second quarter.

"This week marks one year since we announced the largest acquisition in our Company’s history," said Mark Stauffer, Orion Group Holding Inc.’s President and Chief Executive Officer.  "My confidence in both the Commercial Concrete Construction (CCC) and Heavy Civil Marine Construction (HCMC) segments remains strong.  Looking at the second quarter, we experienced slightly slower productivity as a result of adverse weather in Texas, along with timing and mix of jobs in our HCMC segment.  As previously discussed, we elected to reduce the scope on one of the remaining troubled Tampa projects in order to bring this project to completion.  By doing this, although we incurred slightly lower margin than originally anticipated during the quarter, we brought closure to a job that likely would have experienced further customer delays and significantly higher costs to complete in the future.  Finally, we made further improvements to the Company's operating management structure, which resulted in one-time expenses during the second quarter.  I am pleased that we have materially completed the troubled Tampa projects and I believe we have laid the foundation for a strong future.  Our underlying businesses fundamentals are not only sound, but we believe are primed for continued improvement, and we remain confident in our full year outlook."

Heavy Civil Marine Construction Segment

  • Second quarter 2016 contract revenue was $80.0 million, a decrease of $6.1 million, or 7.1%, from the prior year period. The decrease is primarily attributable to the timing and mix of jobs, including the material completion of the troubled Tampa projects.
  • Second quarter 2016 operating loss was $1.2 million, an improvement of $1.5 million compared to the prior year period.
  • Second quarter 2016 EBITDA was $5.3 million, representing a 6.7% EBITDA margin which compares to second quarter 2015 EBITDA of $4.0 million, or 4.7% EBITDA margin (EBITDA and EBITDA margin are non-GAAP measures, defined on Page 3 of this release; reconciliation tables are provided on pages 7-8).
  • Backlog of work under contract as of June 30, 2016, was $166 million, which compares with backlog under contract at June 30, 2015 of $223 million.  Additionally, the Company is the apparent low bidder, or has been awarded subsequent to the end of the quarter approximately $55 million of work.

Commercial Concrete Construction Segment

  • Second quarter 2016 contract revenue was $60.3 million, an increase of $9.9 million, or 19.5% from the prior year period.
  • Second quarter 2016 operating income was $1.5 million, a decrease of $0.5 million compared to the prior year period. The decrease is primarily attributable to amortization expense related to the acquisition of TAS.
  • Second quarter 2016 EBITDA was $3.6 million, representing a 6.0% EBITDA margin which compares to second quarter 2015 pro forma EBITDA of $3.0 million, or 5.9% EBITDA margin (EBITDA and EBITDA margin are non-GAAP measures, defined on Page 3 of this release; reconciliation tables are provided on pages 7-8).
  • Backlog of work under contract as of June 30, 2016, was $201 million, which is comparable with backlog under contract at June 30, 2015 of $174 million.  Additionally, the Company is the apparent low bidder, or has been awarded subsequent to the end of the quarter approximately $46 million of work.

Outlook

"As we begin the second half of the year, we are encouraged by the productivity of our operations and the sustained level of opportunities we see,” continued Mr. Stauffer.  “We continue to experience a high level of demand for all of the types of services we provide across both operating segments.  In the HCMC segment, we have materially wrapped up all of the remaining troubled Tampa projects.  With these projects behind us, we are confident that the new management team in Tampa has the tools and structure in place for profitable operations in the future," said Mr. Stauffer.

"Similar to market expectations provided in the prior quarter, the HCMC segment continues to see solid demand to help for the services needed to maintain and expand the infrastructure that facilitates the movement of goods and people on and over waterways.  As we monitor developments in the energy sector, we continue to see bid opportunities from our private sector energy-related customers as they expand their marine facilities associated with the storage, transportation and refining of domestically produced energy.  We continue to believe over the long term, we will see opportunities in this sector from petrochemical related customers, energy exporters, and liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities.

In the CCC segment, demand for services also remains solid.  In the Houston market, we are seeing increasing demand for education, medical and retail space.  The Dallas market continues to be a source of growth, and continues to maintain peak backlog.  We believe strong demand overall for our CCC segment will continue in our current operating markets and support expansion plans for this business,” concluded Mr. Stauffer.
               
"Overall, we bid on approximately $760 million during the second quarter 2016 and were successful on approximately $123 million," said Chris DeAlmeida, Orion Group Holding's Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. "This resulted in a 0.88x times book-to-bill ratio for the quarter and a win rate of 16.2%. In the HCMC segment, we bid on approximately $362 million during the second quarter 2016 and were successful on $47 million. This resulted in a 0.59x times book-to-bill ratio for the quarter and a win rate of 13.0%.  The CCC segment also had healthy bid levels for the quarter, bidding on approximately $398 million in work while being awarded approximately $76 million.  This resulted in a 1.26x times book-to-bill ratio for the quarter and a win rate of 19.1%.  In total, we have approximately $725 million worth of bids outstanding, excluding approximately $101 million on which we are apparent low bidder or have been awarded subsequent to the end of the quarter, of which, approximately $55 million is in the HCMC segment and approximately $46 million is in the CCC segment."

"We are reiterating our full year 2016 revenue guidance of $625 - $675 million and earnings per share (EPS) guidance of $0.30 - $0.40.  Additionally, and as we stated last quarter, we are targeting $70 million of EBITDA for 2017," said Mr. DeAlmeida.

EBITDA and EBITDA Margin

This press release includes the financial measures “EBITDA” and “EBITDA margin."  These measurements are “non-GAAP financial measures” under rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, including Regulation G.  The non-GAAP financial information may be determined or calculated differently by other companies. By reporting such non-GAAP financial information, the Company does not intend to give such information greater prominence than comparable and other GAAP financial information, which information is of equal or greater importance.

Orion Group Holdings defines EBITDA as net income before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization.  EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing EBITDA for the period by contract revenues for the period.  The GAAP financial measure that is most directly comparable to EBITDA is net income, while the GAAP financial measure that is most directly comparable to EBITDA margin is operating margin, which represents operating income divided by contract revenues.  EBITDA and EBITDA margin are used internally to evaluate current operating expense, operating efficiency, and operating profitability on a variable cost basis, by excluding the depreciation and amortization expenses, primarily related to capital expenditures and acquisitions, and net interest and tax expenses.  Additionally, EBITDA and EBITDA margin provide useful information regarding the Company's ability to meet future debt repayment requirements and working capital requirements while providing an overall evaluation of the Company's financial condition.  In addition, EBITDA is used internally for incentive compensation purposes.  The Company includes EBITDA and EBITDA margin to provide transparency to investors as they are commonly used by investors and others in assessing performance.  EBITDA and EBITDA margin have certain limitations as analytical tools and should not be used as a substitute for operating margin, net income, cash flows, or other data prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or as a measure of the Company's profitability or liquidity.

Backlog

Backlog consists of projects under contract that have either (a) not been started, or (b) are in progress and not yet complete, and the Company cannot guarantee that the revenue projected in its backlog will be realized, or, if realized, will result in earnings.  Backlog can fluctuate from period to period due to the timing and execution of contracts.  Given the typical duration of the Company's projects, which generally range from three to nine months, the Company's backlog at any point in time usually represents only a portion of the revenue it expects to realize during a twelve-month period.

Forward-Looking Statements

The matters discussed in this press release may constitute or include projections or other forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, the provisions of which the Company is availing itself. Certain forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology, such as 'believes', 'expects', 'may', 'will', 'could', 'should', 'seeks', 'approximately', 'intends', 'plans', 'estimates', or 'anticipates', or the negative thereof or other comparable terminology, or by discussions of strategy, plans, objectives, intentions, estimates, forecasts, outlook, assumptions, or goals. In particular, statements regarding future operations or results, including those set forth in this press release (including those under “Outlook” above), and any other statement, express or implied, concerning future operating results or the future generation of or ability to generate revenues, income, net income, profit, EBITDA, EBITDA margin, or cash flow, including to service debt, and including any estimates, forecasts or assumptions regarding future revenues or revenue growth, are forward-looking statements. Forward looking statements also include estimated project start date, anticipated revenues, and contract options which may or may not be awarded in the future.  Forward looking statements involve risks, including those associated with the Company's fixed price contracts that impacts profits, unforeseen productivity delays that may alter the final profitability of the contract, cancellation of the contract by the customer for unforeseen reasons, delays or decreases in funding by the customer, levels and predictability of government funding or other governmental budgetary constraints and any potential contract options which may or may not be awarded in the future, and are the sole discretion of award by the customer. Past performance is not necessarily an indicator of future results. In light of these and other uncertainties, the inclusion of forward-looking statements in this press release should not be regarded as a representation by the Company that the Company's plans, estimates, forecasts, goals, intentions, or objectives will be achieved or realized. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof. The Company assumes no obligation to update information contained in this press release whether as a result of new developments or otherwise.
