Dycom Industries, Inc. Announces Fiscal 2017 First Quarter Results And Provides Guidance For The Next Fiscal Quarter
PR Newswire
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., Nov. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dycom Industries, Inc. (NYSE: DY) announced today its results for the first quarter ended October 29, 2016. The Company reported:

  • Contract revenues of $799.2 million for the quarter ended October 29, 2016, compared to $659.3 million for the quarter ended October 24, 2015. Contract revenues for the quarter ended October 29, 2016 grew 18.0% on an organic basis after excluding contract revenues from acquired businesses that were not owned for the entire period in both the current and prior year quarter. Total contract revenues from acquired businesses were $56.6 million for the quarter ended October 29, 2016, compared to $29.9 million for the quarter ended October 24, 2015.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of $129.2 million, or 16.2% of contract revenues, for the quarter ended October 29, 2016, compared to $105.7 million, or 16.0% of contract revenues, for the quarter ended October 24, 2015.
  • On a GAAP basis, net income was $51.0 million, or $1.59 per common share diluted, for the quarter ended October 29, 2016, compared to net income of $30.8 million, or $0.91 per common share diluted, for the quarter ended October 24, 2015. Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income was $53.7 million, or $1.67 per common share diluted, for the quarter ended October 29, 2016, compared to Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income of $42.0 million, or $1.24 per common share diluted, for the quarter ended October 24, 2015. Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income for the quarter ended October 29, 2016 and October 24, 2015 excludes $4.3 million and $1.8 million, respectively, of pre-tax interest expense incurred for non-cash amortization of the debt discount associated with the Company's 0.75% convertible senior notes due September 2021. Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income for the quarter ended October 24, 2015 also excludes the impact of a pre-tax charge of approximately $16.3 million for early extinguishment of debt in connection with the redemption of the Company's 7.125% senior subordinated notes.

Additionally, the Company has adjusted its outlook for the operations of Goodman Networks acquired in July 2016. The Company now expects revenues from the acquired operations for the next several quarters to approximate $10.0 million per quarter. As a result, the Company has reduced its contract backlog by a total of $211 million, of which $49 million was expected to be completed over the next twelve months. In addition, since the Company reported last quarter, a customer has modified its plans. As a result, the Company has reduced its forecasted revenue for that customer for the remainder of fiscal 2017 by approximately $80 million and its contract backlog associated with one project by $413 million. The total remaining backlog associated with other projects for this customer represents less than 2.5% of the Company's total backlog of $5.203 billion at October 29, 2016.

The Company also announced its outlook for the second quarter of fiscal 2017. The Company currently expects total contract revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 to range from $640 million to $670 million. On a GAAP basis, diluted earnings per common share for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 is expected to range from $0.53 to $0.65. Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Common Share is expected to range from $0.61 to $0.73. Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Common Share guidance excludes $4.4 million of pre-tax interest expense for non-cash amortization of debt discount, or $0.08 per common share diluted on an after-tax basis. A reconciliation of Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Common Share guidance provided for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 is included within the press release tables.

DYCOM INDUSTRIES, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
TO COMPARABLE GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (CONTINUED)

Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). In the Company's quarterly results releases, trend schedules, conference calls, slide presentations, and webcasts, it may use or discuss Non-GAAP financial measures, as defined by Regulation G of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company believes that the presentation of certain Non-GAAP financial measures in these materials provides information that is useful to investors because it allows for a more direct comparison of the Company's performance for the period reported with the Company's performance in prior periods. The Company cautions that Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the Company's reported GAAP results. Management defines the Non-GAAP financial measures used in this release as follows:

  • Non-GAAP Organic Contract Revenues - contract revenues from businesses that are included for the entire period in both the current and prior year periods. Non-GAAP Organic Contract Revenue growth is calculated as the percentage change in Non-GAAP Organic Contract Revenues over those of the comparable prior year period. Management believes organic growth is a helpful measure for comparing the Company's revenue performance with prior periods.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA - net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, gain on sale of fixed assets, stock-based compensation expense, loss on debt extinguishment, and certain non-recurring items. Management believes Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA is a helpful measure for comparing the Company's operating performance with prior periods as well as with the performance of other companies with different capital structures or tax rates.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income - GAAP net income before loss on debt extinguishment, non-cash amortization of the debt discount, certain non-recurring items and any tax impact related to these items. Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Common Share - Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income divided by weighted average diluted shares outstanding. Management excludes or adjusts each of the items identified below from Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income and Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Common Share:
    • Non-cash amortization of the debt discount - The Company's 0.75% convertible senior notes due September 2021 (the "Notes") were allocated between debt and equity components. The difference between the principal amount and the carrying amount of the liability component of the Notes represents a debt discount. The debt discount will be amortized over the term of the Notes but will not result in periodic cash interest payments. During the three months ended October 29, 2016 and October 24, 2015, the Company recognized approximately $4.3 million and $1.8 million, respectively, in pre-tax interest expense for non-cash amortization of the debt discount associated with the Notes. The Company has excluded the non-cash amortization of the debt discount from its Non-GAAP financial measures because it believes it is useful to analyze the component of interest expense for the Notes that will be paid in cash. The exclusion of the non-cash amortization from the Company's Non-GAAP financial measures provides management with a consistent measure for assessing financial results.
    • Loss on debt extinguishment - The Company incurred a pre-tax charge of approximately $16.3 million for early extinguishment of debt in connection with the redemption of its 7.125% senior subordinated notes in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. Management believes excluding the loss on debt extinguishment from the Company's Non-GAAP financial measures assists investors' overall understanding of the Company's current financial performance. The Company believes this type of charge is not indicative of its core operating results. The exclusion of the loss on debt extinguishment from the Company's Non-GAAP financial measures provides management with a consistent measure for assessing the current and historical financial results.
    • Tax impact of adjusted results - The tax impact of the adjusted results for the three months ended October 29, 2016 and October 24, 2015 was calculated utilizing a Non-GAAP effective tax rate which approximates the Company's effective tax rate used for financial planning. The tax impact included in the Company's guidance for the quarter ending January 28, 2017 was calculated using an effective tax rate used for financial planning and forecasting future results.
