AUSTIN, TX / ACCESSWIRE / August 6, 2020 / Thermon Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:THR) (the "Company," "Thermon," "we" or "our") today announced consolidated financial results for the first quarter ("Q1 2021") of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2021 ("Fiscal 2021").

Q1 2021 highlights, as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019 ("Q1 2020"), include:

  • Revenue of $56.8 million, a decrease of 38% compared to $91.7 million
  • Backlog of $109.9 million, with the second consecutive quarter of a positive book to bill ratio
  • Fully diluted GAAP loss per fully diluted common share ("EPS") of $(0.18), a decrease of $0.22 compared to $0.04
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EPS of $(0.11), a decrease of $0.26 compared to $0.15
  • Net loss of $(6.1) million as compared to net income of $1.5 million
  • Generated $3.4 million of cash provided by operating activities, consistent with Q1 2020
  • Preserving the strength of our balance sheet, with $48.2 million of cash and cash equivalents and a net debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio of 2.5x

Bruce Thames, Thermon's President and Chief Executive Officer said, "During a challenging quarter, I am proud of the team's resilience and execution to plan. While we experienced lower demand in our end markets, we remained focused on our customer relationships, the health and safety of our global employees, developing world-class technology and continuing to generate positive cash from operations. We took decisive action to reduce run-rate costs by $17 million and will continue to manage our cost structure in line with the level of incoming business going forward. We continue to prioritize cash management and maintaining our strong balance sheet, and while we expect the impact from both COVID-19 and volatility in energy related markets to continue, we are positioning our business for success as the global economy recovers."

During Q1 2021, the Company generated revenue of $56.8 million versus $91.7 million in Q1 2020, a decrease of $34.9 million or 38%. During Q1 2021, new facility construction (or "Greenfield") and facility maintenance, repair and operations and upgrade or expansion (or "MRO/UE") activity from our legacy heat tracing business accounted for 32% and 68% of revenue, respectively, which compares to 49% and 51% in Q1 2020. Gross margin during Q1 2021 was 42.4%, as compared to 40.5% in Q1 2020.

Q1 2021 total orders were $60.6 million versus $82.8 million in Q1 2020, a decrease of $22.2 million or 27%. Q1 2021 backlog of $109.9 million represents a $1.6 million decrease, or 1%, as compared to Q1 2020 backlog of $111.5 million.

Q1 2021 net loss attributable to Thermon and GAAP EPS were $(6.1) million and $(0.18), respectively, compared to net income and GAAP EPS of $1.5 million and $0.04, respectively, in Q1 2020. After taking into account the impact of the cost of a workforce reduction in the Western Hemisphere, the benefit from the Canadian Emergency Wage Subsidy and intangible amortization related to prior acquisition activities (see table, Reconciliation of Net (Loss) Income attributable to Thermon to Adjusted Net (Loss) Income and Adjusted EPS), the Company generated an Adjusted Net Loss in Q1 2021 of $(3.5) million and Adjusted EPS of $(0.11) compared to Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS of $4.8 million and $0.15, respectively, in Q1 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA was $1.4 million in Q1 2021 as compared to $13.1 million in Q1 2020, a decrease of $11.8 million or 90% (see table, Reconciliation of Net Income attributable to Thermon to Adjusted EBITDA).

As of June 30, 2020, the Company had $179.0 million of gross outstanding debt and $48.2 million of cash and cash equivalents representing net debt of $130.8 million. During the quarter we amended our existing credit agreement whereby the debt within the leverage ratio may be reduced by cash in excess of $20.0 million. Based on the trailing twelve month Adjusted EBITDA of the Company, our net debt to trailing twelve month Adjusted EBITDA ratio was 2.5x as of June 30, 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Disclosure in this release of "Adjusted EPS," "Adjusted EBITDA," "Adjusted Net Income" and "Free Cash Flow" which are "non-GAAP financial measures" as defined under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), are intended as supplemental measures of our financial performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). "Adjusted Net Income" and "Adjusted EPS" (or "Adjusted fully diluted earnings per share") represent net income attributable to Thermon before costs related to the western hemisphere reduction in force, the benefit from the Canadian Emergency Wage Subsidy ("CEWS"), costs related to the consolidation of our operating footprint in Canada, amortization of intangible assets, and the income tax effect on any non-tax adjustments, per fully-diluted common share in the case of Adjusted EPS. "Adjusted EBITDA" represents net income attributable to Thermon before interest expense (net of interest income), income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense, stock-based compensation expense, income attributable to non-controlling interests, costs related to the western hemisphere reduction in force, the benefit from the CEWS and costs related to the consolidation of our operating footprint in Canada. "Free Cash Flow" represents cash provided by operating activities less cash used for the purchase of property, plant and equipment, net of sales of rental equipment and proceeds from sales of land and buildings.

We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are meaningful to our investors to enhance their understanding of our financial performance and are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties to compare our performance with the performance of other companies that report Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, or Adjusted Net Income. Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income should be considered in addition to, not as substitutes for, income from operations, net income, net income per share and other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP. We provide Free Cash Flow as a measure of our liquidity. Our calculation of Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Free Cash Flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. For a description of how Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, and Free Cash Flow are calculated and reconciliations to the corresponding GAAP measures, see the sections of this release titled "Reconciliation of Net Income attributable to Thermon to Adjusted EBITDA," "Reconciliation of Net Income attributable to Thermon to Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS" and "Reconciliation of Cash Provided by Operating Activities to Free Cash Flow."

Our forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance, and actual results and future performance may differ materially from those suggested in any forward-looking statements. We do not intend to update these statements unless we are required to do so under applicable securities laws.
