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."

These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements regarding our industry, business strategy, plans, goals and expectations concerning our market position, future operations, margins, profitability, capital expenditures, liquidity and capital resources and other financial and operating information. When used, the words "anticipate," "assume," "believe," "budget," "continue," "could," "estimate," "expect," "intend," "may," "plan," "potential," "predict," "project," "will," "future" and similar terms and phrases are intended to identify forward-looking statements in this release. Forward-looking statements reflect our current expectations regarding future events, results or outcomes. These expectations may or may not be realized. Some of these expectations may be based upon assumptions, data or judgments that prove to be incorrect. 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.

Actual events, results and outcomes may differ materially from our expectations due to a variety of factors.
