Pike Reports Record Core Services Revenue In Fiscal Third Quarter 2012

Pike Electric Corporation (NYSE: PIKE), one of the nation’s leading energy solutions providers, today reported fiscal third quarter 2012 results for the period ended March 31, 2012. Revenue totaled $162.8 million, an increase of 6% compared to $153.8 million in the year-ago period. Net income totaled $2.0 million, or $0.06 per diluted share versus net income of $0.6 million, or $0.02 per diluted share for the same period last year.

Core services revenue totaled a record high $156.5 million and storm restoration revenue totaled $6.3 million in the fiscal third quarter 2012. Core services revenue includes the Company’s distribution, transmission, and engineering and substation construction activities. Core services revenue totaled $137.7 million and storm restoration revenue totaled $16.1 million in the year-ago period.

“Our core business improved on both a sequential and year-over-year basis this quarter, led by continued double-digit growth in distribution. Even with the decline in storm restoration this quarter, we achieved total revenue growth of six percent compared to the fiscal third quarter last year,” said J. Eric Pike, Chairman and CEO of Pike. “In addition to our improved financial performance, we are experiencing a heightened level of bid activity as the overall industry demand for our full suite of services appears to be strengthening.”

Gross profit increased to $20.5 million, or 12.6% of revenue, in the fiscal third quarter 2012. Gross profit totaled $16.4 million, or 10.7% of revenue in the year-ago period. The improvement primarily reflects the sustained volume growth in distribution. Additionally, the gross profit percentage benefitted from a lower mix of procurement-related revenue.
