Global Power Reports First and Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results and Announces New Strategic Initiative

 

IRVING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Global Power Equipment Group Inc. (OTC: GLPW) ("Global Power" or the "Company") today reported its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, and the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2017. The delay in reporting the Company's financial results for the first half of 2017 was due to the time it took to prepare and audit the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 (the "2015 Report"), which included the restatement of certain prior period financial results and was filed on March 15, 2017, as well as the subsequent time required to file the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, which was filed on September 12, 2017.

The Company also reported on its operational progress in 2017 and its current strategic initiatives.

Craig Holmes and Tracy Pagliara, Co-Presidents and Co-CEOs of Global Power, commented, "As we had previously disclosed, financial results of the first half of 2017 reflect many of the on-going operational challenges that we have been diligently addressing. We believe we have made substantial progress in better positioning the Company for long-term success, but we recognize that these operational challenges, combined with liquidity constraints, restrict our ability to invest in our businesses."

They added, "After having successfully divested substantially all of the operating assets and liabilities of the Mechanical Solutions segment in October of this year, we are now currently evaluating strategic alternatives for our Electrical Solutions segment. This business has great employees, customers, manufacturing capabilities, suppliers and end markets. Consequently, we believe Electrical Solutions could benefit from a new strategic partner that can provide increased liquidity and capital for the business to improve operations and pursue greater growth in its diversified end markets. This will also allow us to further reduce debt and focus efforts on enhancing our Services segment, which has recently entered into a significant joint venture and is continuing to pursue a pipeline of solid and diverse opportunities. It will also help accelerate our ongoing efforts to reduce costs in our administrative and corporate functions."

Consolidated Results for the Six Months ended June 30, 2017 (compared with the corresponding period in 2016 unless noted otherwise)

  • Revenue was $157.9 million compared with $229.5 million, a $71.6 million decline. Items impacting revenue included:
    • The sale of various businesses and a plant closure had a combined negative impact to revenue of $21.8 million.
    • The timing of projects, as well as the decreased number and magnitude of projects, were the primary reasons for reduced revenue in both the Services and Mechanical Solutions segments. Delays in completing projects was the primary reason for a $6.0 million decline in volume in Electrical Solutions.
  • Cost reductions and expense management helped to drive a $3.4 million, or 13.2%, decline in general and administrative expenses. These measures also reduced selling and marketing expenses by
    $1.5 million, or 29.2%. Restatement expenses were down $2.0 million, as the restatement of 2014 and certain prior-period financial results was completed in March 2017.
  • The $0.8 million reduction in interest expense was the result of a lower average debt balance.
  • The income tax benefit was mainly related to a $2.2 million decrease in indefinite-lived intangible deferred tax liabilities resulting from the disposition of Hetsco, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary ("Hetsco").
  • Net loss was $31.7 million, or $1.81 per share.
  • At the end of the period, backlog was $215.5 million, of which $122.8 million, or 57.0%, was related to the Services segment.

Focused on Execution in First Half 2017

  • In January, the Company sold the stock of Hetsco, to Chart Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: GTLS) for net proceeds of $20.2 million.
  • In March, Global Power completed the restatement of 2014 and certain prior-period financial results and filed the 2015 Report.
  • In June, the Company secured a $45.0 million senior secured term loan, which matures in December 2021, and used part of the proceeds to repay in full all outstanding loans and obligations under the Company's previous credit agreement.

Business Segment Review for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2017(compared with the corresponding period in 2016 unless noted otherwise)

Services segment:

  • Services revenue of $41.2 million was down $27.5 million due primarily to completion in 2016 of construction and support services for the restart of a new build nuclear reactor that contributed
    $19.8 million in revenue for the prior-year period. Also, approximately $3.1 million of the decline was related to the sale of Hetsco.
  • Services operating loss was $9.2 million, a $12.8 million decrease, due primarily to $13.1 million of costs recognized to reflect estimated losses on several large non-recurring fixed-price contracts under which Services performed change orders in the interest of keeping projects on track that are currently in dispute with the customer. In such cases, the costs are recognized when incurred, but revenue recognition is deferred subject to the resolution of the dispute. No estimated losses on contracts were recorded in the first quarter of 2016.

Electrical Solutions segment:

  • Revenue for the segment was $13.5 million, a $4.1 million decline, mostly as the result of the closure of the Chattanooga facility, which led to the loss of a major customer.
  • Electrical Solutions operating loss increased $1.3 million to $4.0 million due primarily to a $1.8 million increase in estimated losses on certain contracts.

Mechanical Solutions segment:

  • Revenue was $16.7 million, down $19.7 million as the segment had declining demand for its products and was not able to replace projects.
  • Despite measurable cost reduction efforts, the significant reduction in revenue was the primary cause of Mechanical Solutions' $0.2 million operating loss compared with $1.5 million of operating income in the prior-year period.

Business Segment Review for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2017(compared with the corresponding period in 2016 unless noted otherwise)

Services segment:

  • Services revenue increased $2.2 million as the timing of a customer-scheduled nuclear facility outage more than offset the impact of the sale of Hetsco and completion of significant work in 2016 associated with the restart of a new build nuclear plant. Services revenue was up $16.7 million compared with the first quarter of 2017, given the impact of the timing of outage work.
  • Operating income for the segment was $3.1 million compared with an operating loss of $8.7 million in the second quarter of 2016. The $11.8 million increase was largely due to the non-recurrence of an
    $8.2 million loss related to net assets held for sale for Hetsco that was recognized in the prior-year period, a $2.6 million reduction of loss contract charges and a $0.7 million reduction in operating expenses from the reorganization of the Williams business unit.
  • Backlog at the end of the period was $122.8 million compared with $138.6 million at the end of 2016. Approximately $18.3 million of the decline in Services backlog was due to the completion of the spring outage work related to a maintenance and modification contract.

Electrical Solutions segment:

  • Revenue was $10.5 million in the quarter, down from $22.2 million in the second quarter of 2016. The decline was primarily related to the Chattanooga plant closure, which had a $5.5 million negative impact, and lower production volume due to delays in project completion. This had a $6.2 million negative impact on revenue.
  • Operating loss increased to $4.3 million compared with $0.5 million in the prior-year period due to the significant revenue decline and resulting $2.0 million decrease in gross profit. Additionally, estimated losses on certain contracts increased $2.0 million. The losses were the result of incurring liquidated damages from missed delivery dates and operating inefficiencies, primarily in the Houston facility.
  • Electrical Solutions backlog at June 30, 2017 increased $3.7 million from December 31, 2016 due to delays in production and shipments.

Mechanical Solutions segment:

  • Revenue was $17.9 million, down $10.9 million, as the segment had declining demand for its products and was not able to replace projects.
  • Operating loss was $0.2 million compared with $1.8 million in the prior-year period, due primarily to an increase in gross profit of $1.1 million due to $2.0 million of loss contract accruals that were recorded in the same period of the prior year and measurable cost reduction efforts, offset by the significant reduction in revenue.
  • Mechanical Solutions backlog at June 30, 2017 was $33.1 million, a $4.7 million decline from December 31, 2016.

Creating Liquidity; Driving Operational and Organizational Progress

Messrs. Holmes and Pagliara noted, "The hard work and dedicated effort of our employees resulted in a great number of accomplishments in 2017. We recognize that more work remains to address significant operational and liquidity issues, and we are defining a path to alleviate these challenges."

Successful efforts in second half of 2017 include the following:

  • Sold the Mechanical Solutions segment and its related Mexico facility and equipment for total net proceeds of $44.5 million.
  • With proceeds from the sale of Mechanical Solutions, the Company reduced debt by $35.9 million in October 2017, including full repayment of a $10.0 million first-out term loan from August 2017, which enables the Company to avoid an increase in the facility's payable-in-kind interest rate in 2018.
  • Realigned and strengthened management team within Electrical Solutions by adding experienced industry personnel in key operational leadership positions.
  • Initiated the process for the evaluation of strategic alternatives for Electrical Solutions segment, which could provide liquidity, pay down additional debt and provide the segment with increased investment capital.
  • Formed joint venture between Services business and prime construction contractor to supply craft labor for the new nuclear power plant construction at Plant Vogtle Units 3 & 4. The Services segment will also provide supervision and ancillary support services to the joint venture. The segment is well-positioned for a variety of potential multi-year, multi-discipline projects including, for example, site coatings, insulation and perimeter security. Later this month, the Georgia Public Service Commission is expected to issue final approval or denial related to continued construction at Plant Vogtle Units 3 & 4.
  • Awarded new nuclear and fossil-power contracts by long-standing customers of the Services segment.
  • Negotiated receipt of $6.4 million of outstanding receivables for pre-petition services rendered to a customer that filed for bankruptcy protection. Expect to be paid for the remaining $2.3 million in outstanding pre-petition receivables as well.
  • Became more current in the filing of our financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including filing the comprehensive Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 and the quarterly reports on Form 10-Q for the first and second quarters of 2017.

Planned efforts for facilitating improved performance in 2018 and beyond include the following:

  • Seek a new asset-based lending facility, which would provide additional liquidity through new borrowings, the release of restricted cash that is currently collateral for standby letters of credit and the ability to issue new standby letters of credit.
  • Expand decommissioning business by leveraging nuclear experience and capabilities, developing partnerships and pursuing new opportunities in this large and growing market.
  • Work toward a diversified pipeline of opportunities to compete in transmission and distribution, oil and gas and petrochemical markets and consider potential market expansion opportunities in Canada.
  • Seek to refinance the term-loan debt pending a successful conclusion of the Electrical Solutions strategic alternatives process.
  • Focus on improving days sales outstanding and days payable outstanding.
  • Aggressively continue to reduce corporate and other operating costs.
  • Become current with the SEC by filing the annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 by April 2, 2018.

Liquidity Update

As of December 14, 2017, the Company had $15.4 million in cash and equivalents on-hand, including $11.8 million in restricted cash, and had an outstanding gross debt balance of approximately $25.1 million.

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company had negative cash flow from operations of $5.8 million. Since June 2017, the Company's liquidity has remained very constrained as a result of continued losses, inconsistent cash flows from operations and the inability to borrow additional amounts for short-term working capital needs or issue additional standby letters of credit. Management continues to assess and implement steps in its liquidity plan.

Update on Financial Reporting for 2017

The Company expects to file its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 during January 2018 and its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 by the filing deadline on April 2, 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA is not calculated through the application of GAAP and is not the required form of disclosure by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Adjusted EBITDA is the sum of our net loss before interest expense, net and income tax (benefit) expense and unusual gains or charges. It also excludes non-cash charges such as depreciation and amortization. The Company's management believes adjusted EBITDA is an important measure of operating performance because it allows management, investors and others to evaluate and compare the performance of its core operations from period to period by removing the impact of the capital structure (interest), tangible and intangible asset base (depreciation and amortization), taxes and unusual gains or charges (foreign currency gain, stock-based compensation, restatement expenses, asset disposition costs, loss on sale of business and net assets held for sale, bank restructuring costs and severance costs), which are not always commensurate with the reporting period in which such items are included. Global Power's credit facility also contains ratios based on EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net income or as a better measure of liquidity than net cash flows from operating activities, as determined by GAAP, and therefore, should not be used in isolation from, but in conjunction with, the GAAP measures. The use of any non-GAAP measure may produce results that vary from the GAAP measure and may not be comparable to a similarly defined non-GAAP measure used by other companies.
