  • Revenue growth of 22% driven by accelerating global economic recovery
  • Orders up 59% including a large, one-time North American contract
  • Run-rate spending in line with Fiscal 2022 target
  • Raising full-year Fiscal 2022 revenue guidance to $330-$345 million due to backlog strength and incoming order rate trends

AUSTIN, TX / ACCESSWIRE / November 9, 2021 / Thermon Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:THR) ("Thermon"), a global leader in industrial process heating solutions, today announced consolidated financial results for the second quarter ("Q2 2022") of its fiscal year ending March 31, 2022 ("Fiscal 2022"). Key highlights for Q2 2022 as compared to the three months ended September 30, 2020 ("Q2 2021") include:

  • Revenue of $81.3 million versus $66.4 million in Q2 2021, an increase of $14.9 million, or 22%
  • Gross margin of 39.0%, as compared to 43.6% in Q2 2021
  • GAAP Net Income/(Loss) of $0.5 million as compared to $1.8 million in Q2 2021
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $11.4 million versus $10.5 million in Q2 2021, an increase of $0.9 million or 9%
  • Fully diluted GAAP earnings/(loss) per share ("EPS") of $0.01 and Non-GAAP Adjusted EPS of $0.12

Bruce Thames, Thermon's President and Chief Executive Officer, said "The momentum in our business is accelerating, and we are benefiting from the increasing demand for our solutions, particularly in North America. Growth in orders, backlog and revenues are all significantly outpacing expectations, and our run-rate spending is in line with targeted levels. During the quarter we also won a one-time order worth over $20 million with a strategic customer in North America. We expect margins to improve in the second half of the year driven by price increases offsetting the majority of rising input costs and manufacturing inefficiencies associated with the current global supply chain challenges and labor shortages. Our diversification initiative is already yielding results in sustainable applications like biofuels and hydrogen as well as orders in the rail & transit and food & beverage end markets. Due to the continued economic recovery and our confidence in the strength and pace of customer spending, we are raising our full-year Fiscal 2022 revenue guidance to $330-$345 million."

Q2 2022 Net income/(loss) and EPS were $0.5 million and $0.01, respectively, compared to Net income/(loss) and EPS of $1.8 million and $0.06, respectively, for Q2 2021. After taking into account the impact of restructuring, intangible amortization related to prior acquisition activities, the tax expense for impact of foreign rate increases, withholding tax on dividend related to the debt amendment, loss on debt extinguishment, and the benefit from the Canadian Emergency Wage Subsidy (the "CEWS") (see table, Reconciliation of Net Income/(Loss) to Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) and Adjusted EPS), Thermon generated Adjusted Net Income in Q2 2022 of $3.9 million and Adjusted EPS of $0.12 compared to $3.8 million and $0.12, respectively, in Q2 2021.

Adjusted EBITDA was $11.4 million in Q2 2022 as compared to $10.5 million in Q2 2021, an increase of $0.9 million, or 9% (see table, Reconciliation of Net Income/(Loss) to Adjusted EBITDA). Cash provided by operating activities was $8.0 million as compared to $9.3 million in Q2 2021, a decrease of $1.3 million.

During the first six months of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2022 ("YTD 2022"), the Company generated revenue of $152.5 million compared to $123.3 million in the first six months of the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021 ("YTD 2021"), an increase of $29.2 million or 24%.

YTD 2022 Net income/(loss) and GAAP EPS were $0.1 million and $0.00, respectively, compared to $(4.2) million and $(0.13) in YTD 2021. After taking into account the impact of restructuring, intangible amortization related to prior acquisition activities, the tax expense for impact of foreign rate increases, withholding tax on dividend related to the debt amendment, loss on debt extinguishment, and the benefit from the Canadian Emergency Wage Subsidy (the "CEWS") (see table, Reconciliation of Net Income (Loss) to Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted EPS), the Company generated Adjusted Net Income in YTD 2022 of $5.2 million and Adjusted EPS of $0.15 compared to $0.3 million and $0.01, respectively, during YTD 2021. Adjusted EBITDA was $19.5 million in YTD 2022 as compared to $11.8 million in YTD 2021, an increase of $7.7 million or 65%.

As of September 30, 2021, Thermon had $139.8 million of gross outstanding debt and $38.2 million of cash and cash equivalents, representing net debt of $101.6 million. Our Net Debt to trailing twelve month Adjusted EBITDA leverage ratio was 2.3x as of September 30, 2021.

Additional Information

Backlog was $155.5 million as of September 30, 2021, representing a $36.8 million increase, or 31%, as compared to Q2 2021 backlog of $118.7 million. YTD 2022 orders were $192.7 million compared to $136.4 million in YTD 2021, an increase of $56.3 million or 41%.

During Q2 2022, 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 39% and 61% of revenue, respectively, which compares to 36% and 64%, respectively, in Q2 2021.

Outlook

For our Fiscal 2022, we are raising our previous guidance, and now expect revenue will be approximately $330-$345 million, including the impact of the one-time order. We will continue to prioritize our capital allocation towards optional debt repayments in the near term and target a Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA leverage ratio of approximately 1.5x by March 31, 2022, excluding the impact of any inorganic activity.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Disclosure in this release of "Adjusted EPS," "Adjusted EBITDA," "Adjusted EBITDA margin," "Adjusted Net Income/(Loss)" 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/(Loss)" and "Adjusted EPS" (or "Adjusted fully diluted EPS") represent net income/(loss) before the impact of restructuring and other charges/(income), amortization of intangible assets, tax expense for impact of foreign rate increases, withholding tax on dividend related to the debt amendment, loss on debt extinguishment, the benefit from the Canadian Emergency Wage Subsidy (the "CEWS"), and any tax effect of such adjustments. "Adjusted EBITDA" represents net income/(loss) before interest expense (net of interest income), income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense, stock-based compensation expense, costs associated with our restructuring and other income/(charges), the loss on our debt extinguishment, and income related to the CEWS. "Adjusted EBITDA Margin" represents Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenue. "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, Adjusted EBITDA margin or Adjusted Net Income/(Loss). Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) and Free Cash Flow should be considered in addition to, and not as substitutes for, income from operations, net income/(loss), net income/(loss) per share and other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP. We provide Free Cash Flow as a measure of liquidity. Our calculation of Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) 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 and Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) are calculated and reconciliations to the corresponding GAAP measures, see the sections of this release titled "Reconciliation of Net Income/(Loss) to Adjusted EBITDA," "Reconciliation of Net Income/(Loss) to Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) and Adjusted EPS" and "Reconciliation of Cash Provided by Operating Activities to Free Cash Flow."

Any one of these factors or a combination of these factors could materially affect our future results of operations and could influence whether any forward-looking statements contained in this release ultimately prove to be accurate.

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.
