Enerflex Announces First Quarter 2019 Financial Results and Quarterly Dividend
CALGARY, Alberta, May 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enerflex Ltd. (TSX:EFX) (“Enerflex” or “the Company” or “we” or “our”), a leading supplier of products and services to the global energy industry, today reported its financial and operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2019.
Summary Table of First Quarter of 2019 Financial and Operating Results
“The first quarter of 2019 benefitted from our record backlog at December 31, 2018, with strong revenue and gross margin realized from projects secured in the second half of 2018,” said J. Blair Goertzen, Enerflex's President and Chief Executive Officer. “In addition to our success with Engineered Systems, we also saw improvements in both the Service and Rental product lines, attributable to the Company’s strategy to increase recurring revenue. Despite lower bookings activity in this quarter, the Company’s backlog remains strong at well over $1 billion and we continue to see a healthy bid pipeline for Engineered Systems. Enerflex will continue to monitor project and industry risks and activities across our diversified operations, however, with our backlog and an increasing demand for natural gas, our near-term outlook remains positive.”
First Quarter Results SummaryEngineered Systems revenue increased due to execution of the work from the Company’s record December 31, 2018 backlog, particularly in the USA segment. Service revenues have grown in all segments as a result of higher activity levels, particularly in the USA and Australia. Rental revenues increased due to the contributions of the contract compression fleet in the USA and build-own-operate-maintain (“BOOM”) revenues in Colombia. Gross margins increased due to higher revenue and improved gross margin percentage, while SG&A costs increased due to higher compensation costs, partially offset by positive foreign exchange impacts.
First Quarter Segmented Results
USAUSA segment revenue was $293 million, an increase of $101 million from the same period in 2018. Engineered Systems revenue improved as a result of the realization of strong bookings seen in prior quarters and continued progress of certain large projects, as well as the impact of the stronger U.S. dollar in 2019 versus the comparative period. Service revenues increased on higher activity across the region while Rental revenues improved due to the organic growth of the contract compression fleet. An increase of $11 million in EBIT was driven by higher revenues across all product lines and improved gross margin performance, partially offset by higher compensation costs on a larger workforce and mark-to-market impacts on share-based compensation.
Rest of WorldRevenue in the Rest of World segment decreased by $1 million, the result of lower Engineered Systems revenue, partially offset by improved Service revenue, primarily in Australia, and improved Rental performance in Latin America. EBIT decreased by $1 million due to lower revenues for the segment and higher SG&A costs, partially offset by improved gross margin performance in the quarter when compared to the prior year. Gross margin for the quarter was negatively impacted by higher estimated costs to complete certain projects and write-down of equipment, while the first quarter of 2018 included some margin erosion and project delays for a large project. SG&A costs have increased from the prior year due to increased compensation on a larger workforce and mark-to-market impacts on share-based compensation, partially offset by the effects of restructuring activities in Australia recognized in the first quarter of 2018.
CanadaCanadian revenue decreased by $1 million on lower Engineered Systems revenue resulting from weaker bookings seen in the first half of 2018, partially offset by higher Service revenue due to increased parts sales. EBIT increased by $3 million due to higher gross margin on improved project margins, while SG&A costs were consistent with the comparable period in 2018.
OutlookThe Company’s products and services remain dependent on strength and stability in commodity prices. Stability and improvement in commodity prices are required to allow customers to continue to increase investment, which should translate to further demand for the Company’s products and services. Record bookings and backlog in the second half of 2018 provide visibility for Engineered Systems revenue through 2019 and early 2020. However, Enerflex has experienced lower bookings activity in the first quarter of 2019 as the Company’s ability to respond to some North American projects with delivery times that met the client’s needs was limited by the Company’s fabrication and supply chain capacity. We have also seen delays in the timing of customer project approvals and a corresponding reduction in the conversion of opportunities, which impacted bookings during the first quarter and could impact bookings over the balance of the year. The Company expects quarterly bookings for the remainder of 2019 to trend closer to historical activity. Bidding activity for Engineered Systems remains strong, particularly in the USA, and the Company continues to see interest for Rentals and BOOM solutions in the USA and ROW segments.
Enerflex’s financial performance continues to benefit from strategic decisions to diversify product offerings for Engineered Systems, to focus on increasing the recurring revenue streams derived from new and existing long-term BOOM, rental, and service contracts, and to develop a geographically diversified business. In the near term, Enerflex has a positive outlook supported by continued strength in our backlog and high enquiry levels across all regions. In the longer term, the Company continues to monitor the impacts of volatility in realized commodity prices, political uncertainty, and egress issues in the Permian, as well as the lack of consistent access to market causing unpredictable pricing differentials in Canada. While recent liquefied natural gas (“LNG”) project approval has offered some future relief to the Canadian gas industry, management still expects activity in Canada to be largely subdued through 2019. Enerflex continues to assess the effects of these contributing factors and the corresponding impact on our customers’ activity levels, which will drive the demand for the Company’s products and services in future periods.
The Company’s results include items that are unique and items that management and users of the financial statements add back when evaluating the Company’s results. The presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation from EBIT or EBITDA as determined under IFRS. Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies and should not be considered in isolation or as a replacement for measures prepared as determined under IFRS.
The items that have been adjusted for presentation purposes relate generally to four categories: 1) impairment or gains on idle facilities; 2) restructuring activities; 3) transaction costs related to M&A activity; and, 4) share-based compensation. Identification of these items allows for an understanding of the underlying operations of the Company based on the current assets and structure. Enerflex has presented the impact of share-based compensation as it is an item that can fluctuate significantly with share price changes during a period based on factors that are not specific to the long-term performance of the Company. The disposal of idle facilities is isolated within Adjusted EBITDA as they are not reflective of the ongoing operations of the Company and are idled as a result of restructuring activities.
Effective January 1, 2019, the Company applied IFRS 16 Leases (“IFRS 16”) for the first time. The effect of the new standard is to increase EBIT by $0.6 million, as a portion of lease expenses are included as interest. In addition, depreciation and amortization increased by $2.9 million, resulting in a total increase in EBITDA of $3.5 million. The standard was adopted prospectively from January 1, 2019, and accordingly the 2018 results have not been affected. Refer to the Adjusted EBITDA section of the Management’s Discussion and Analysis for further detail on the new standard.
DividendSubsequent to the end of the quarter, Enerflex declared a quarterly dividend of $0.105 per share, payable on July 4, 2019, to shareholders of record on May 16, 2019.
