McGrath RentCorp Announces Results For Second Quarter 2012

Stocks in this article: MGRC

Adler’s mix of year over year rental revenues for the second quarter of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011 reflects fracking related rentals decreasing from approximately 35% to 23%, and with a 16% increase in overall rental revenues as mentioned earlier. Although division-wide utilization is considerably lower than we had projected for 2012, it is primarily related to a single end market, in one region of the country. In fact, during the second quarter, first month’s rent bookings increased 16% from the second quarter of 2011, and was Adler’s highest quarterly booking level ever. We believe the anticipated shortfall in our results for Adler in 2012 is a near-term dynamic that will resolve itself in the quarters ahead. Keep in mind that we are still in the early stages of ramping the Adler geographic footprint and customer following. We have every confidence that we will continue to grow favorably in the future.

Modular division rental revenues for the quarter were relatively flat at $19.5 million from a year ago. Rental revenues grew by 8% year over year in our markets outside of California; however, they declined by 7% within the state. California continues to be plagued by fiscal and budgetary challenges. Year over year income from operations decreased by 29% from a year ago to $3.7 million; however, modular rental operations gross profit declined only 3%. The higher percentage reduction in income from operations was due primarily to higher SG&A expenses associated with the continued expansion of our portable storage rental business and divisional employee costs, as well as lower gross profit on modular equipment sales. Modular division utilization for the quarter was down slightly to 66% from 67% a year ago. Finally, we had a 33% increase in first month’s rent bookings for modular buildings during the second quarter compared to a year ago. This was our highest booking quarter since before the Great Recession.
