SP Plus Corporation Announces Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2016 Results

Double-digit growth in full-year EPS, EBITDA and Free Cash Flow; Met or exceeded guidance on all measures

/EIN News/ -- CHICAGO, Feb. 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SP Plus Corporation (Nasdaq:SP), a leading national provider of parking, ground transportation and related products and services to commercial, institutional and municipal clients throughout North America, today announced its fourth quarter and full-year 2016 results.

G Marc Baumann, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are very pleased with the significant progress we’ve made on our key strategic priorities and the strong financial results we produced in 2016.  Most notably, we’ve streamlined our organization and optimized processes to reduce costs and improve productivity, as well as implemented new safety and risk programs to reduce our total cost of risk.  Successful execution on these initiatives helped drive strong bottom-line performance for the fourth quarter and full year.  We are seeing growth across many of our industry verticals and geographic markets and were able to once again achieve record new business as well as maintain a high level of location retention.  Finally, the business continued to generate significant adjusted free cash flow of $46.4 million for the 2016 fiscal year, an increase of 26%.”

Mr. Baumann continued, “Looking forward to 2017, our primary focus will be capitalizing on opportunities to accelerate top-line gross profit growth.  We recently conducted a strategic analysis to identify key industry verticals with the best potential for growth and have started to take steps to realign our organization to most effectively take advantage of these opportunities.  We’re also focused on building up our revenue management capabilities to further accelerate gross profit growth.”

Mr. Baumann concluded, “Fiscal 2017 will be somewhat of a transition year as we start to evolve to more of an industry vertical focus.  We believe these changes will position us well for sustainable, long-term growth.”

Fourth Quarter Operating Results

Reported gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2016 was $47.1 million, compared to $39.7 million in the same quarter of 2015, an increase of $7.4 million or 19%.  On an adjusted basis, fourth quarter adjusted gross profit also increased $7.4 million or 19% as compared to the same period of 2015.  Several key factors affected the year-over-year comparison.  The Company experienced lower health claims costs in the fourth quarter of 2016 than in the fourth quarter of 2015 as the Company has taken steps throughout 2016 to control the rising cost of healthcare.  In addition, there was a more significant reduction in casualty loss reserve estimates in the fourth quarter of 2016 than occurred in the same period of 2015.  Aside from these factors, the Company continued to see year-over-year gross profit increases at same locations and benefitted from the addition of new business that offset the impact of contract terminations.

Reported general and administrative (“G&A”) expenses for the fourth quarter of 2016 were $23.0 million as compared to reported G&A of $23.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2015, a decrease of $0.1 million or 1%.  Adjusted G&A expenses for the fourth quarter of 2016 were $19.5 million, an increase of $0.8 million or 4% from the fourth quarter of 2015, driven primarily by a significant increase in the Company’s performance-based compensation accrual, which partially offset other reductions in compensation and benefit costs.

Reported EBITDA was $23.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, as compared to $15.7 million for the same period of 2015.  Adjusted EBITDA increased by 32% to $27.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, as compared with $20.7 million on the same basis in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Reported earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $0.43, as compared to reported earnings per share of $0.11 for the same period of 2015.  Adjusted earnings per share was $0.52 for the fourth quarter of 2016, as compared with adjusted earnings per share of $0.29 for the fourth quarter of 2015, an increase of 79%.  Improved gross profit as well as lower interest costs and depreciation and amortization expenses contributed to the increase in adjusted earnings per share.

Full-Year Operating Results

Reported gross profit for fiscal 2016 was $176.4 million, compared to $170.1 million in 2015, an increase of $6.3 million or 4%.  Adjusted gross profit for fiscal 2016 was $177.2 million, an increase of $4.0 million, or 2%, as compared to the same period of 2015.  The main drivers of the year-over-year increase were an improvement in the overall cost of casualty and health insurance, growth at same locations, and the addition of new business that offset contract terminations.

Reported G&A expenses for fiscal 2016 were $90.0 million as compared to $97.3 million in 2015, a decrease of $7.3 million or 8%.  Fiscal 2016 adjusted G&A expenses were $83.0 million, a decrease of $5.4 million or 6% from fiscal 2015, driven primarily by cost reduction initiatives despite an increase in the Company’s 2016 performance-based compensation accrual.

Reported EBITDA was $83.6 million in fiscal 2016, as compared with $69.9 million in fiscal 2015.  Adjusted EBITDA was $91.3 million in fiscal 2016, an increase of $9.0 million or 11% from the prior year on the same basis.

Reported earnings per share in fiscal 2016 was $1.03 as compared to $0.77 in fiscal 2015, the latter of which included a $0.20 per share benefit from the reversal of valuation allowances for deferred tax assets in 2015.  Adjusted earnings per share was $1.32 in fiscal 2016, as compared with adjusted earnings per share of $0.97 in fiscal 2015, an increase of 36%.  The main drivers of the year-over-year increase in adjusted earnings per share were higher gross profit as well as significant cost reductions, reduced interest expense and reduced depreciation and amortization expense.

The Company generated $42.4 million of free cash flow and $46.4 million of adjusted free cash flow during 2016, as compared with $27.1 million and $36.9 million, respectively, during 2015.  The increase in adjusted free cash flow was largely due to improved operating performance and favorable movements in working capital, as well as lower cash tax payments and interest expense, and the receipt of proceeds from an asset sale and a contract termination.

Recent Developments

SP+ Hotel Services was selected to manage the parking operations at the MGM National Harbor resort outside of Washington, DC.  The operation consists of 5,000 spaces for self-park plus valet-assist serving both hotel and casino patrons.

SP+ Transportation was awarded a multi-year contract to provide a shuttle program linking the AON and Prudential buildings in downtown Chicago, IL to nearby mass transit centers.  This is the first fully electric shuttle bus program in the City of Chicago.

SP+ Airport Services commenced ground transportation management services at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Seattle, WA as a prime subcontractor to Eastside for Hire, Inc.  The Company will provide curbside customer service and manage taxi dispatch functions including managing the staging areas and hold lots, and maintaining permit and regulatory standards.

SP+ Parking was chosen to provide parking management services at the Mazza Gallerie, a retail, dining, and entertainment complex in Washington, DC.  The Company’s national relationship with Ashkenazy Acquisition Corporation helped to secure this contract. 

2017 Outlook

Reported and Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $92 million to $97 million, an increase of 13% and 4% over 2016 reported and adjusted EBITDA, respectively, at the mid-point.

Reported and Adjusted EPS is expected to be in the range of $1.55 to $1.65, an increase of $0.57 per share or 55% over reported 2016 and an increase of $0.28 per share or 21% over adjusted 2016, at the mid-point.  It is important to note that the amortization of certain intangible assets acquired in connection with the 2012 Central Parking merger will decrease in 2017.  The amortization of intangibles related to all previous merger and acquisition activity will decrease from $15.7 million in 2016 to $8.3 million in 2017, contributing to a $0.19 increase in year-over-year reported and adjusted EPS.

Free cash flow is expected to be in the range of $47 million to $52 million, an increase of 17% over 2016 reported free cash flow and 7% over 2016 adjusted free cash flow, at the mid-point.  This free cash flow guidance includes after-tax restructuring-related severance and non-routine settlement payments of $2.5 million, all of which have been previously accrued.  The Company no longer anticipates reporting adjusted free cash flow. 

While the Company does not contemplate any significant adjustments to EBITDA and EPS at this time, any equity in losses or income from the investment in Parkmobile, or other non-routine items such as, but not limited to, integration and restructuring costs, asset or business sales or dispositions, acquisitions, non-routine settlements, non-routine income tax items, and ongoing costs related to non-routine structural and other repairs, will continue to be adjusted from reported results.

Guidance estimates are based on approximately 22.6 million shares and an effective tax rate of approximately 40%.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains forward-looking non-GAAP measures of financial performance which are not determined in accordance with U.S., Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), including expected non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, expected non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share, and expected free cash flow. The presentation of these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, and may be different from the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. In addition, these forward-looking non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP.  Expected non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA and expected non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share exclude certain non-routine items including, but not limited to: restructuring costs, asset or business sales or dispositions, acquisitions, non-routine settlements, non-routine income tax items and ongoing costs related to non-routine structural and other repairs. 

To supplement its consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company considers certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, including gross profit plus costs incurred related to non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases and less gross profit impact related to asset sales or dispositions (also referred to as adjusted gross profit); general and administrative expenses less restructuring, merger and integration related costs, costs related to asset sales or dispositions, non-routine settlements, and costs incurred related to the Parkmobile and other contemplated transactions (also referred to as adjusted G&A); net income and net income per share attributable to SP Plus plus costs incurred related to non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases, restructuring, merger and integration related costs, net income impact related to asset sales or dispositions, non-routine settlements, costs incurred related to the Parkmobile and other contemplated transactions, and costs incurred in connection with the amendment to the senior credit agreement, with all adjustments tax affected at a statutory tax rate of 41%, and eliminating non-routine tax adjustments (also referred to as adjusted net income attributable to SP Plus and adjusted EPS); EBITDA and EBITDA plus costs incurred related to non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases, restructuring, merger and integration related costs, non-routine settlements, costs incurred related to the Parkmobile and other contemplated transactions, and subtracting the EBITDA impact related to asset sales or dispositions (also referred to as adjusted EBITDA); and free cash flow and free cash flow plus cash used for non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases and the final settlement with former Central Parking stockholders (also referred to as adjusted free cash flow).  Based on the timing of asset sales and/or dispositions, previously reported adjusted non-GAAP measures have been revised to provide a presentation consistent with how management evaluates such performance and consistent with the performance guidance provided previously by the Company.

The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, to evaluate its operating and financial performance and to compare such performance to that of prior periods and to the performance of its competitors. Additionally, the Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making operational and financial decisions and in the Company’s budgeting and planning process. The Company believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures to investors helps investors evaluate the Company’s operating performance, profitability and business trends in a way that is consistent with how management evaluates such performance and consistent with guidance previously provided by the Company. Adjusted gross profit, adjusted G&A, adjusted net income attributable to SP Plus, adjusted EPS, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, and free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow should not be considered as alternatives to, or more meaningful indicators of the Company's operating performance or liquidity than, gross profit, G&A, net income, EPS or net cash provided by operating activities, as determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the Company's calculation of such non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

The Company defines EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, as GAAP net income attributable to the Company before (i) interest expense net of interest income, (ii) provision for income taxes, (iii) depreciation and amortization, (iv) gain on sale of a business or contribution of a business to an unconsolidated entity, and (v) equity in the gains or losses from investment in an unconsolidated entity.  Adjusted EBITDA further adjusts EBITDA by adding costs incurred related to non-routine items including, but not limited to, structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases, restructuring, merger and integration related costs, non-routine settlements, costs incurred related to the Parkmobile and other contemplated transactions, and subtracting gross profit and G&A impacts related to asset sales or dispositions.

The Company defines free cash flow as net cash from operating activities, less cash used for investing activities (exclusive of acquisitions and net proceeds from the sale of businesses), less distribution to noncontrolling interest, plus the effect of exchange rate changes on cash and cash equivalents. Adjusted free cash flow in 2016 and 2015 also excludes the cash used for non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases and the final settlement with former Central Parking stockholders.  The Company believes that the presentation of free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow provides useful information regarding its recurring cash provided by operating activities after certain expenditures. It also demonstrates the Company's ability to execute its financial strategy. The Company's presentations of free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow have material limitations. The Company's free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow do not represent its cash flow available for discretionary expenditures because it excludes certain expenditures that are required or to which the Company has committed, such as debt service requirements. The Company's definition of free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

For reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, see the accompanying tables to this release.
