AUSTIN, TX / ACCESSWIRE / August 4, 2022 / Thermon Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:THR) ("Thermon"), a global leader in industrial process heating solutions, today announced consolidated financial results for the first quarter ("Q1 2023") for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2023 ("Fiscal 2023"). Key highlights for Q1 2023 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2021 ("Q1 2022") include:

  • Revenue of $95.4 million versus $71.2 million in Q1 2022, an increase of $24.3 million, or 34%
  • Gross margin of 39.0%, as compared to 37.3% in Q1 2022
  • Net Income of $6.6 million as compared to Net Loss of $(0.3) million in Q1 2022
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $16.6 million versus $8.1 million in Q1 2022, an increase of $8.5 million or 106%
  • Fully diluted GAAP earnings per share ("EPS") of $0.20 and Non-GAAP Adjusted EPS of $0.25

Bruce Thames, Thermon CEO and President said, "I am very pleased with the strong execution of our global Thermon team to start our fiscal year by achieving record revenue and bookings while driving exceptional operating leverage in the first quarter. Growth in the Western Hemisphere drove results in the quarter and we expanded our presence in nearly all targeted end markets while increasing gross margins. We saw only limited recovery in the Eastern Hemisphere during the quarter, where the economic recovery has lagged. The strategic acquisition of Powerblanket was financed from cash on hand and leaves our balance sheet strong - providing the financial flexibility necessary to execute our plans in a still uncertain global economic environment. Profit margins grew year over year as we continue to navigate the challenging global supply chains and drive productivity improvements while managing controllable spend."

Q1 2023 Net Income and EPS were $6.6 million and $0.20, respectively, compared to Net Loss and EPS of $(0.3) million and $(0.01), respectively, for Q1 2022. After taking into account the impact of acquisition costs, restructuring, amortization of intangible assets, the tax expense/(benefit) for impact of foreign rate increases, and the benefit from the Canadian Emergency Wage Subsidy (the "CEWS") (see table, Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS), Thermon generated Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) in Q1 2023 of $8.5 million and Adjusted EPS of $0.25 as compared to $1.2 million and $0.04, respectively, in Q1 2022.

Adjusted EBITDA was $16.6 million in Q1 2023 as compared to $8.1 million in Q1 2022, an increase of $8.5 million, or 106% (see table, Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted EBITDA). Cash provided by operating activities was $11.9 million in Q1 2023 as compared to $2.5 million in Q1 2022.

As of June 30, 2022, Thermon had $150.8 million of gross outstanding debt and $40.0 million of cash and cash equivalents, representing Net Debt of $110.8 million. Our Net Debt to trailing twelve month Adjusted EBITDA leverage ratio was 1.7x as of June 30, 2022.

Backlog was $165.0 million as of June 30, 2022, representing a $49.3 million increase, or 43%, as compared to Q1 2022 backlog of $115.8 million. Orders in Q1 2023 were $103.3 million compared to $72.4 million in Q1 2022, an increase of $30.9 million or 43%.

During Q1 2023, Point in time revenue accounted for 62% of total revenue and Over time revenue accounted for 38%, compared to 62% and 38%, respectively, in Q1 2022.

Revised Outlook

For our fiscal year ending March 31, 2023, we expect revenue will be approximately $380-$405 million, which includes $18 million of revenue contribution from the Powerblanket acquisition. We also expect GAAP EPS in Fiscal 2023 to be approximately $0.85-$0.97 per share, with Adjusted EPS to be approximately $1.07-$1.19 per share. We continue to evaluate additional inorganic growth opportunities while investing in our long-term strategic initiatives.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Disclosure in this release of "Adjusted EPS," "Adjusted EBITDA," "Adjusted EBITDA margin," "Adjusted Net Income/(Loss)," "Free Cash Flow," and "Net Debt," 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), acquisition costs, amortization of intangible assets, tax expense for impact of foreign rate increases, the benefit from 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, acquisition costs, costs associated with restructuring and other income/(charges), 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. "Net Debt" represents total outstanding principal debt less cash and cash equivalents on hand.

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, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Net Income/(Loss) and Free Cash Flow 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."

In addition, our business and operations involve numerous risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control, which could result in our expectations not being realized or otherwise materially affect our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.

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.
