Dycom Industries, Inc. Announces Fiscal 2021 First Quarter Results

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., May 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Dycom Industries, Inc. (NYSE: DY) announced today its results for the first quarter ended April 25, 2020.

First Quarter Fiscal 2021 Highlights

  • Contract revenues of $814.3 million for the quarter ended April 25, 2020, compared to $833.7 million for the quarter ended April 27, 2019. Contract revenues for the quarter ended April 25, 2020 decreased 1.8% on an organic basis after excluding $4.7 million in contract revenues from storm restoration services for the quarter ended April 27, 2019.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of $69.9 million, or 8.6% of contract revenues, for the quarter ended April 25, 2020, compared to $73.6 million, or 8.8% of contract revenues, for the quarter ended April 27, 2019.
  • On a GAAP basis, net loss was $32.4 million, or a loss of $1.03 per common share, for the quarter ended April 25, 2020, compared to net income of $14.3 million, or $0.45 per common share diluted, for the quarter ended April 27, 2019. Non‑GAAP Adjusted Net Income was $11.4 million, or $0.36 per Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted Share, for the quarter ended April 25, 2020, compared to Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income of $16.9 million, or $0.53 per common share diluted, for the quarter ended April 27, 2019.

    Net loss on a GAAP basis for the quarter ended April 25, 2020 includes a pre-tax goodwill impairment charge of $53.3 million for a reporting unit that generated revenue of less than 4% of Dycom's consolidated revenue and did not incur losses in fiscal 2020. This reporting unit generates a substantial portion of its revenue and operating results from installation services inside third party premises. In response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, certain of the Company's customers have modified their protocols to increase the self-installation of customer premise equipment by their subscribers. This is expected to result in a downturn in customer demand for the Company's in-home installation services for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, and possibly longer.

    Net loss on a GAAP basis for the quarter ended April 25, 2020 also includes a pre-tax gain of approximately $12.5 million related to the purchase of $167.0 million of principal amount of the Company's 0.75% convertible senior notes due September 2021 (the "Notes") for $147.0 million.
  • As of April 25, 2020, the Company had cash and equivalents of approximately $643.9 million, borrowings on its revolving line of credit of $675.0 million, $438.8 million of term loans outstanding and $293.0 million principal amount of Notes outstanding. On May 5, 2020, the Company announced a tender offer to purchase any and all of its outstanding Notes. The Company expects to fund purchases of the Notes tendered in the tender offer with cash on hand.

COVID-19

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Dycom's services have generally been considered essential in nature and have not been materially interrupted. As the situation continues to evolve, the Company is closely monitoring the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on all aspects of its business, including how it impacts the Company's customers, subcontractors, suppliers, vendors and employees, in addition to how the COVID-19 pandemic impacts the Company's ability to provide services to its customers. The Company believes the ultimate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its operating results, cash flows and financial condition is likely to be determined by factors which are uncertain, unpredictable and outside of its control. Given the significant uncertainty related to the duration and scope of the impact of COVID-19, the Company is not providing detailed financial guidance for the quarter ending July 25, 2020 or subsequent quarters at this time.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

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 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, excluding contract revenues from storm restoration services. 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 periods. Management believes organic growth is a helpful measure for comparing the Company's revenue performance with prior periods.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA - net income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, gain on sale of fixed assets, stock-based compensation expense, 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 (loss) before the non-cash amortization of the debt discount and the related tax impact, certain tax impacts resulting from vesting and exercise of share-based awards, and certain non-recurring items.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Common Share and Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted Shares - Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income divided by Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted Shares outstanding. Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted Shares includes the dilutive impact of common stock equivalents related to share-based awards that are excluded from the computation of net loss per common share on a GAAP basis as their effect would be anti-dilutive.

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 debt discount on Notes - The Company's 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 is being amortized over the term of the Notes but does not result in periodic cash interest payments. The Company excludes 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.
  • Goodwill impairment charge - The Company incurred a goodwill impairment charge of $53.3 million for a reporting unit that performs installation services inside third party premises. Management believes excluding the goodwill impairment charge from the Company's Non-GAAP financial measures assists investors' overall understanding of the Company's current financial performance and provides management with a consistent measure for assessing the current and historical financial results.
  • Gain on debt extinguishment - The Company incurred a pre-tax gain of approximately $12.5 million related to the purchase of $167.0 million of principal amount of the Company's 0.75% convertible senior notes due September 2021 for $147.0 million during the quarter ended April 25, 2020. Management believes excluding the gain on debt extinguishment from the Company's Non-GAAP financial measures assists investors' overall understanding of the Company's current financial performance and provides management with a consistent measure for assessing the current and historical financial results.
  • Charge for warranty costs - During the quarter ended April 27, 2019, the Company recorded an $8.2 million pre-tax charge for estimated warranty costs for work performed for a customer in prior periods. The Company excludes the impact of this charge from its Non-GAAP financial measures because the Company believes it is not indicative of its underlying results in the current period.
  • Recovery of previously reserved accounts receivable and contract assets - During the quarter ended April 27, 2019, the Company recognized $10.3 million of pre-tax income from the recovery of previously reserved accounts receivable and contract assets based on collections from a customer. The Company excludes the impact of this recovery from its Non-GAAP financial measures because the Company believes it is not indicative of its underlying results.
  • Tax impact of the vesting and exercise of share-based awards - The Company excludes certain tax impacts resulting from the vesting and exercise of share-based awards as these amounts may vary significantly from period to period. Excluding these amounts from the Company's Non-GAAP financial measures provides management with a more consistent measure for assessing financial results.
  • Tax effect from a net operating loss carryback under enacted CARES Act - For the quarter ended April 25, 2020, the Company recognized an income tax benefit of $2.6 million from a net operating loss carryback under the enacted U.S. Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security ("CARES") Act. The Company excludes this impact because the Company believes it is not indicative of the Company's underlying results or ongoing operations.
  • Tax impact of pre-tax adjustments - The tax impact of pre-tax adjustments reflects the Company's estimated tax impact of specific adjustments and the effective tax rate used for financial planning for the applicable period.
