Thermon Reports Third Quarter Results

Company Announces Record Revenue of $76.8 Million, Adjusted EBITDA of $18.9 Million, EPS of $0.24 and Return on Equity of 35%

SAN MARCOS, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/13 -- Thermon Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: THR) ("Thermon" or the "Company") today announced consolidated financial results for the third quarter ended December 31, 2012. The Company posted third quarter record revenue of $76.8 million and EPS of $0.24.

Highlights for the quarter and comparisons versus the prior year quarter include:

  • Revenue of $76.8 million, growth of 11%
  • Gross profit of $35.0 million, growth of 4%
  • Record GAAP EPS of $0.24 on a fully diluted basis
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $18.9 million, growth of 1%
  • Backlog at Q3 was $107.1 million an increase of $4.9 million or 5%
  • Return on equity of 35% measured by annualized Q3 Adjusted EBITDA

"Thermon posted all time quarterly records for revenue, gross profit and GAAP earnings in Q3, thus closing out a strong calendar 2013. Due to significant Greenfield billings in the period our gross margin declined to 45.5% as a percentage of sales," said Rodney Bingham, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Q3 2013 revenue of $76.8 million reflects an increase of approximately 11% compared to revenue of $69.2 million in Q3 2012.

Gross margin was 45.5% of revenue in Q3 2013 versus 48.7% in Q3 2012. The decrease was due to strength in the Greenfield project business which represented 42% of total revenue in Q3 versus only 35% in the year ago period. In addition, Greenfield gross margin results were negatively impacted by product mix and specific project circumstances. Adjusted EBITDA excluding management fees was $18.9 million, an increase of 1% versus the $18.7 million generated in Q3 2012.

Q3 2013 net income of $7.7 million reflected an improvement of $0.8 million versus $6.9 million generated in Q3 2012. Excluding transaction expenses from the prior year period the Company reported Q3 2012 adjusted net income of $7.2 million and $0.23 per fully diluted common share, thus Q3 2013 performance reflects growth of $0.01 per diluted share, versus Q3 2012, or 4%.

On a year to date basis the Company generated record revenue of $212.0 million reflecting 5% growth versus revenue of $202.5 million in fiscal 2012. Foreign currency negatively impacted revenue by approximately $7.1 million year to date versus fiscal 2012, an impact of approximately 3%. US Dollar strength versus the Euro and Canadian Dollar were the primary causes at $4.7 and $1.4 million, respectively. Gross margin percentage of 47.6% year to date 2013 compared to 48.2% in fiscal 2012. Adjusted EBITDA excluding management fees was $56.8 million year to date, an increase of $3.6 million or 7% versus fiscal 2012.

Net income year to date was $21.3 million, a record $0.67 per share, versus net income of $5.8 million in fiscal 2012. After excluding transaction expenses, the Company generated year to date record adjusted net income of $23.2 million and $0.73 per fully diluted common share in fiscal 2013 versus fiscal 2012 adjusted net income of $19.2 million and $0.63 per fully diluted common share, growth of 16%. Foreign currency headwinds reduced year to date earnings by $0.02 per fully diluted share versus 2012.

Adjustments to net income in Q3 2012 are due the effects of optional redemptions of long-term debt. See the tables titled "Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted EBITDA excluding management fees and Return on Equity" and "Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted Net Income and EPS" for additional details.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Disclosure in this release to "Adjusted EPS," "Adjusted EBITDA excluding management fees," "Adjusted net income" and "Return on equity" 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 earnings per share (or EPS)" represents net income before certain transaction expenses and expenses related with debt redemptions, per fully-diluted common share. "Adjusted EBITDA excluding management fees" represents net income before interest expense (net of interest income), income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense and other non-cash charges such as stock-based compensation expense, transaction expenses incurred in connection with the CHS Transactions and our initial public offering, and other transactions not associated with our ongoing operations, such as the loss on retirement of debt, as adjusted to further exclude management and termination fees paid to our private equity sponsors. "Return on equity" represents "Adjusted EBITDA excluding management fees" for the three month period ended December 31, 2012 that is multiplied times four to represent a full year's results, divided by the average of total shareholders' equity at December 31, 2012 and September 30, 2012. We believe that the average equity properly accounts for net income that occurred during the three months ended December 31, 2012.

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 net income or Return on equity. Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA excluding management fees, Adjusted net income and Return on equity 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. Our calculation of Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA excluding management fees, Adjusted net income and Return on equity may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. For a description of how Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA excluding management fees, Adjusted net income and Return on equity are calculated from our net income and a reconciliation of our Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA excluding management fees, Adjusted net income and Return on equity to net income per share and net income, as applicable, see the sections of this release titled "Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted EBITDA excluding management fees and Return on Equity" and "Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted Net Income and EPS."

@ThingsExpo Stories
Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessions, I wanted to share some of my observations on emerging trends. As cyber security serves as a fou...
The Internet of Everything is re-shaping technology trends–moving away from “request/response” architecture to an “always-on” Streaming Web where data is in constant motion and secure, reliable communication is an absolute necessity. As more and more THINGS go online, the challenges that developers will need to address will only increase exponentially. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Todd Greene, Founder & CEO of PubNub, exploreed the current state of IoT connectivity and review key trends and technology requirements that will drive the Internet of Things from hype to reality.
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...
Continuous processes around the development and deployment of applications are both impacted by -- and a benefit to -- the Internet of Things trend. To help better understand the relationship between DevOps and a plethora of new end-devices and data please welcome Gary Gruver, consultant, author and a former IT executive who has led many large-scale IT transformation projects, and John Jeremiah, Technology Evangelist at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), on Twitter at @j_jeremiah. The discussion is moderated by me, Dana Gardner, Principal Analyst at Interarbor Solutions.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound effect on the world, and what should we expect to see over the next couple of years.
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...
The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world. Get ready to learn the facts: Is there a bias against women in the tech / developer communities? Why are women 50% of the workforce, but hold only 24% of the STEM or IT positions? Some beginnings of what to do about it! In her Day 2 Keynote at 17th Cloud Expo, Sandy Carter, IBM General Manager Cloud Ecosystem and Developers, and a Social Business Evangelist, wil...
PubNub has announced the release of BLOCKS, a set of customizable microservices that give developers a simple way to add code and deploy features for realtime apps.PubNub BLOCKS executes business logic directly on the data streaming through PubNub’s network without splitting it off to an intermediary server controlled by the customer. This revolutionary approach streamlines app development, reduces endpoint-to-endpoint latency, and allows apps to better leverage the enormous scalability of PubNub’s Data Stream Network.
Container technology is shaping the future of DevOps and it’s also changing the way organizations think about application development. With the rise of mobile applications in the enterprise, businesses are abandoning year-long development cycles and embracing technologies that enable rapid development and continuous deployment of apps. In his session at DevOps Summit, Kurt Collins, Developer Evangelist at, examined how Docker has evolved into a highly effective tool for application delivery by allowing increasingly popular Mobile Backend-as-a-Service (mBaaS) platforms to quickly crea...
Apps and devices shouldn't stop working when there's limited or no network connectivity. Learn how to bring data stored in a cloud database to the edge of the network (and back again) whenever an Internet connection is available. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Ben Perlmutter, a Sales Engineer with IBM Cloudant, demonstrated techniques for replicating cloud databases with devices in order to build offline-first mobile or Internet of Things (IoT) apps that can provide a better, faster user experience, both offline and online. The focus of this talk was on IBM Cloudant, Apache CouchDB, and ...
Today air travel is a minefield of delays, hassles and customer disappointment. Airlines struggle to revitalize the experience. GE and M2Mi will demonstrate practical examples of how IoT solutions are helping airlines bring back personalization, reduce trip time and improve reliability. In their session at @ThingsExpo, Shyam Varan Nath, Principal Architect with GE, and Dr. Sarah Cooper, M2Mi’s VP Business Development and Engineering, explored the IoT cloud-based platform technologies driving this change including privacy controls, data transparency and integration of real time context with p...
I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical to maintaining positive ROI. Raxak Protect is an automated security compliance SaaS platform and ma...
We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
