SUGAR LAND, Texas, Aug. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Team, Inc. (NYSE: TISI) today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Consolidated revenues increased 10.1% to $343.9 million in the second quarter of 2018 compared to $312.3 million in the prior year quarter, primarily from increased activity levels in each of our segments: Inspection and Heat Treating Group (“IHT”), Mechanical Services Group (“MS”) and Quest Integrity. Consolidated net loss in the second quarter of 2018 was $32.5 million ($1.08 loss per diluted share) compared to a net loss of $11.1 million ($0.37 loss per diluted share) in the second quarter of 2017. Operating income improved to $1.8 million in the second quarter of 2018 compared to an operating loss of $6.7 million for the prior year quarter. Team’s end markets continue to strengthen, as both customer spending and activity levels have increased compared to 2017.

The second quarter 2018 reported results include certain charges not indicative of Team’s core operating activities, including: a non-cash loss of $29.3 million associated with Team’s convertible debt, which was previously subject to mark-to-market accounting, $4.1 million of costs related to our OneTEAM program and $1.7 million of certain legal, professional fees and other costs. Additionally, we incurred $2.4 million of restructuring costs. Net of tax, these items totaled $26.9 million ($0.89 per diluted share).

Excluding these items, adjusted net loss, a non-GAAP measure, was $5.6 million ($0.19 adjusted loss per diluted share) for the current quarter versus adjusted net loss of $6.7 million ($0.23 adjusted loss per diluted share) for the prior year quarter. (See the accompanying reconciliation of all non-GAAP items at the end of this news release.)

Amerino Gatti, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are encouraged with our second quarter 2018 performance, with all three of our business segments showing improvements sequentially and over the prior year quarter. Team achieved strong quarterly organic growth in revenues, operating income and Adjusted EBITDA. Our second quarter also represented record quarterly revenues and Team’s highest Adjusted EBITDA performance since the second quarter of 2016. In addition, our performance improvements benefited the leverage ratio under Team’s credit facility, increasing our available liquidity.

“The OneTEAM program, focused on creating value for our stakeholders, is in full deployment phase and on track. We are pleased with our employees’ dedication, willingness to embrace change and their steadfast commitment to deliver on our key 2018 objectives of improving safety performance, growing EBITDA and increasing free cash flow.

“Given our improved second quarter 2018 financial performance, projected growth in end markets for our services, and our strong focus on executing the OneTEAM program, we remain confident that we are on the right path to deliver 10%-12% annual Adjusted EBITDA margin by 2020,” Mr. Gatti concluded.

Second quarter 2018 selling, general and administrative expense (“SG&A”) was $93.2 million and included $5.8 million of items not indicative of core operating activities described above. First quarter 2018 SG&A was $89.7 million and included $5.1 million of items not indicative of core operating activities. The sequential cost increase of $2.8 million in second quarter is primarily due to non-cash stock-based compensation and increased allowances for bad debts associated with the revenue increase.

1 NM - Not meaningful

The higher overall revenues are primarily attributable to increased activity levels across all segments due to improved market conditions. Foreign currency exchange rate changes favorably impacted revenues by $4.8 million.

The higher operating income reflects higher activity levels, led by an improvement in market conditions—primarily within our North American operations—and the benefits from the Company’s cost savings initiative completed in 2017 as well as benefits from the OneTEAM program in 2018. In the MS segment, these benefits were partially offset by additional amortization expense of $3.1 million associated with the acceleration of amortization of the intangible asset associated with the Furmanite trade name.

Our adjusted measure of operating income, Adjusted EBIT, was $9.8 million in the second quarter of 2018, versus Adjusted EBIT of $0.2 million in the prior year comparable quarter.

Adjusted EBIT and adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain items that are not indicative of Team’s core operating activities.

Supplemental Financial Information

OneTEAM Program: The deployment phase of the OneTEAM integration and business transformation initiative is now well underway. We incurred $4.1 million of expenses during the second quarter of 2018, which are primarily related to professional fees associated with the project, and $2.4 million of severance-related restructuring costs. We currently expect that the OneTEAM Program will be largely completed in the first half of 2019.

Furmanite trade name amortization: Results for the second quarter of 2018 include incremental amortization expense of $3.1 million associated with a change in the estimated useful life of the Furmanite trade name, reflecting initiatives to consolidate the Company’s branding. The trade name will be fully amortized by the end of 2018.

Interest expense: The Company recorded $7.6 million of interest expense during the second quarter of 2018, which includes $1.7 million of non-cash interest expense. The non-cash interest expense is primarily attributable to the amortization of debt issuance costs and the amortization of the discount on the Company’s convertible debt.

Loss on convertible debt embedded derivative: Team recorded a non-cash loss of $29.3 million related to the embedded conversion feature associated with the Company’s convertible debt during the second quarter, primarily from the significant increase in the Company’s stock price. At its Annual Meeting of Shareholders in May 2018, the Company obtained shareholder approval to deliver shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the debt. As a result, the embedded derivative liability was reclassified to stockholders’ equity. Future results will not be impacted by any additional changes in the value of the embedded derivative. Upon conversion, the Company may elect to settle the convertible debt in cash, shares or a combination thereof.

Income taxes: The Company’s effective tax rate was 8.4% for the second quarter of 2018 compared to essentially zero for the same period last year. The effective tax rate was significantly impacted by changes in the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets during the second quarter 2018, which offset much of the tax benefit of the pre-tax loss recognized during the period. In the prior year quarter, the effective tax rate was impacted by changes in the estimated annual effective tax rate, permanent differences and other variations.

Borrowing capacity: At June 30, 2018, our cash balance was $15 million and we had approximately $80 million of available borrowing capacity. Total liquidity of $95 million improved by $17 million sequentially from the first quarter of 2018.

GAAP Earnings and Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Certain items that management believes are not indicative of Team’s core operating activities have been excluded from net income (loss) reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) when arriving at adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted operating income (loss) (which the Company also refers to as adjusted EBIT), each a non-GAAP financial measure. In the current quarter, the most significant of such items were a non-cash loss of $29.3 million associated with the conversion feature of Team’s convertible debt, which was accounted for as a derivative liability under GAAP and $6.5 million of costs related to our OneTEAM transformation project (including $2.4 million of restructuring costs).

A reconciliation of these financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures is contained in the accompanying schedule.

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 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,  professional fees for acquired business integration, gains (losses) on the revaluation of contingent consideration, restructuring and other related charges (credits), executive severance/transition costs, non-capitalized ERP implementation costs, gains (losses) on our convertible debt embedded derivative, and certain other items that management does not believe are indicative of core operating activities and the related income tax impacts. We also exclude the income tax impacts of certain special income tax items including certain changes to valuation allowances and the effects of certain tax legislation changes. The identification of these special tax items is judgmental in nature, and their calculation is based on various assumptions and estimates. 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,  professional fees for acquired business integration, gains (losses) on the revaluation of contingent consideration, restructuring and other related charges (credits), executive severance/transition costs, non-capitalized ERP implementation costs 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.

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 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.
