McGrath RentCorp Announces Results For Fourth Quarter 2013

Rental Revenues Increase 2% EPS Decreases 4% to $0.45 for the Quarter Company Announces 2% Dividend Increase

LIVERMORE, Calif., Feb. 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- McGrath RentCorp (Nasdaq:MGRC) (the "Company"), a diversified business to business rental company, today announced revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 of $94.6 million, a decrease of 7%, compared to $102.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. The Company reported net income of $11.8 million, or $0.45 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to net income of $11.9 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2013 were $379.3 million, compared to $364.1 million in 2012. Rental revenues increased 3% to $255.8 million in 2013, compared to $248.4 million in 2012. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2013 decreased 3% to $43.4 million, compared to net income of $44.8 million in the prior year. Diluted earnings per share decreased 6% to $1.67 in 2013 from $1.78 in 2012.

The Company also announced that the board of directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.245 per share for the quarter ending March 31, 2014, an increase of 2% over the prior year period. On an annualized basis, the 2014 dividend represents a 2.7% yield, based on the February 26, 2014 closing stock price. The cash dividend will be payable on April 30, 2014 to all shareholders of record on April 16, 2014.

Dennis Kakures, President and CEO of McGrath RentCorp, made the following comments regarding these results and future expectations:

"Although we are disappointed that Company-wide net income was relatively flat and EPS down 4% from last year's fourth quarter, we continue to be pleased with the underlying business activity levels and rental revenue growth outlook in our rental business portfolio.

Modular division-wide rental revenues for the quarter increased $2.0 million, or 10%, to $22.1 million from a year ago, and $1.0 million, or 5%, sequentially from the third quarter of 2013. During the fourth quarter we experienced a 21% increase in division-wide year over year first month's rental revenue bookings for modular buildings with an increase of 104% in California, and a decline of 37% outside of the state. For all of 2013, we experienced a 19% increase in division-wide year over year first month's rental revenue bookings for modular buildings with an increase of 31% in California, and 10% outside of the state.  Rental bookings for 2013 were at their highest annual level since 2007 prior to the Great Recession.  Our favorable modular building booking trends have continued in the first quarter of 2014. Modular division ending utilization for the fourth quarter rose to 70.7% compared to 66.7% a year ago, and 70.4% at the end of the third quarter of 2013.  This is the highest end of year modular division utilization level since 2008.  We are also continuing to see rental rates rise for various sized products as demand exceeds readily available supply.

Modular division income from operations for the quarter increased by $0.2 million, or 4%, to $5.9 million, from a year ago.  The lower percentage increase in income from operations compared to rental revenues is primarily related to the increase in divisional booking levels and the significant increase in related inventory center costs for labor and materials to prepare and modify equipment for rental.  This is compounded by needing to redeploy various rental assets that have been sitting idle for extended time frames, which tend to have higher processing costs than inventory that turns more frequently.  In fact, inventory center costs primarily for the preparation of booked orders and anticipated near-term orders were approximately $1.5 million, or 27%, higher than during the fourth quarter compared to a year ago. For all of 2013, these equipment preparation costs increased by approximately $7.4 million, or 31%, over 2012. Although these increased expenses approximate a negative $0.17 EPS impact, they are an expenditure that signals what we believe is a strong turnaround in our modular building rental business. We expense the great majority of these costs in the quarter in which they are incurred; however, we expect to benefit from the associated rental revenue stream in the quarters ahead.  The increase in inventory center related expenses for the quarter was partially offset by higher gross profit on equipment sales.

Rental revenues at Adler Tank Rentals (ATR), our liquid and solid containment tank and box division, decreased by $0.3 million, or 2%, to $17.8 million from a year ago.  Quarter end utilization was 57.7% compared to 67.5% in 2012, and 64.6% sequentially from the third quarter of 2013.  The reduction in quarterly rental revenues and utilization from 2012 levels are primarily a result of lower overall drilling activity in the Marcellus shale region due to increased storage levels of natural gas, various E&P oil projects concluding in the Texas market, and lower equipment utilization for storm water projects due to drought conditions in the western region.  Despite the challenges in various regional markets, new business activity as measured by first month's rent continued favorably with an increase of 35% from a year ago.  However, with a higher mix of non-fracking related rentals, we are seeing shorter average rental terms and a greater churn of rental equipment, which has put downward pressure on utilization.  In fact, fracking related rental revenues reduced to 12% of total rental revenues for the fourth quarter of 2013; this is down from 15% a year ago. ATR divisional income from operations decreased by $0.4 million, or 7%, to $5.5 million from a year ago.  The larger percentage reduction in income from operations as compared to rental revenues is primarily due to higher depreciation costs, partially offset by lower SG&A expenses from a year ago.

Rental revenues for TRS-RenTelco, our electronics division, declined for the quarter by $0.6 million, or 2%, to $26.2 million from a year ago.  The decline in rental revenues is partially related to the sale of our environmental test equipment assets and related rental revenue stream in November 2012.  We also experienced lower business activity levels from softness in our general purpose test equipment end markets, as well as an earlier onset of seasonal fourth quarter equipment returns compared to a year ago.  This is further reflected in quarter end of 58.2% compared to 64.1% a year ago, and 62.3% sequentially from the third quarter of 2013.  Average monthly rental rates for the quarter actually increased to 5.31% from a year ago.  However, this increase is primarily due to an increased mix of communications test equipment which has shorter depreciable lives but higher rental rates than general purpose test equipment.  Despite the year over year reduction in rental revenues, divisional income from operations increased by $0.6 million, or 6%, to $10.7 million for the quarter.  This increase was primarily related to higher profit on equipment sales, and also to lower laboratory and SG&A costs from a year ago.  For all of 2013, TRS-RenTelco income from operations rose to $38.8 million, or 8%, compared to 2012.   

Mobile Modular Portable Storage continued to make good progress during the quarter in building its customer following, increasing booking levels and growing rental revenues, from a year ago.  Rental revenues for the fourth quarter of 2013 grew by 35% from a year ago, as well as 17% sequentially over the third quarter of 2013.  Income from operations also continues to grow favorably as we increase our top line rental revenues and critical mass by market. We believe that our portable storage business can become a meaningful contributor to McGrath RentCorp's overall earnings in the future.

Although our EPS results for 2013 were $0.11 below our 2012 results, upon closer review of various contributing factors, the Company's financial outlook is brighter.  First, and most importantly, due to the resurgence in our modular building rental business we spent $7.4 million more on building preparation related expenses in 2013 than we did in 2012.  This equates to approximately a $0.17 negative EPS impact.  If there is such a thing as good expenses, these qualify.  As I have spoken to on many occasions regarding exiting the Great Recession, our idle and favorable cost basis modular building rental inventory has significant earnings horsepower.  These building preparation expenditures are necessary on the front end in order to realize increasing rental revenue and utilization levels from these assets in the quarters and years ahead as our modular results have begun to demonstrate.  In addition, our dilutive share count for 2013 increased to 25.9 million shares from 25.2 million shares in 2012.  This equates to approximately a $0.05 negative EPS impact for the full year and a $0.02 negative EPS impact in the fourth quarter.  Higher Company share prices throughout 2013 were responsible for the increase in dilutive share count in two ways.  First, the higher share prices drove an increase in option exercising during 2013.  Second, with the higher share prices, virtually all unexercised and outstanding option grants were above their strike prices and included in the dilutive share count. Beginning in the second half of 2013, and going forward, employee exercises in almost all cases, whether for time-based options or earned performance-based equity grants, will be settled in net shares, after taxes.  This is a material counter-dilutive policy that we believe will reduce the impact of future exercised or earned grant shares entering the public equity market by 75% or more.  We are just beginning to experience the benefit of this policy change.

Our 2014 full year earnings guidance range of $1.70 to $1.85 is wider than we typically provide. However, there are many moving parts to our portfolio of rental businesses today that make it challenging to narrow guidance further at this time. The most material variables include: 1) the strength of the recovery underway in our modular building division, 2) the potential for continuing softness in general purpose test equipment rental demand, and 3) increasing utilization levels of our liquid and solid containment tank and box rental assets. Please keep in mind that McGrath RentCorp has a very strong balance sheet, with a funded debt to last twelve months actual adjusted EBITDA ratio of 1.81 to 1, and with the current capacity to borrow an additional $240.0 million under our lines of credit. We can be very opportunistic in growing our business lines with the availability of such funding. Finally, we are committed to making each of our rental businesses meaningful in size and earnings contribution, and with the best operating metrics by industry. We plan to continue to make favorable strides during 2014 towards achieving these goals."          

All comparisons presented below are for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 to the quarter ended December 31, 2012 unless otherwise indicated.

Mobile Modular

For the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company's Mobile Modular division reported a 4% increase in income from operations to $5.9 million.  Rental revenues increased 10% to $22.1 million and other direct costs increased 27% to $6.9 million, which resulted in an increase in gross profit on rental revenues of 3% to $11.5 million. Sales revenues increased 7% to $4.3 million, with gross profit on sales revenues increasing 67% to $1.6 million.  Gross margin on sales revenues increased to 37% from 24%, primarily due to higher margin on new and used equipment sales in the fourth quarter of 2013.  Selling and administrative expenses increased 11% to $9.7 million primarily as a result of increased personnel and benefit costs.

TRS-RenTelco

For the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company's TRS-RenTelco division reported a 6% increase in income from operations to $10.7 million.  Rental revenues decreased 2% to $26.2 million.  The decrease in rental revenues together with a 5% increase in depreciation expense to $10.4 million, partly offset by a 12% decrease in other direct costs to $2.9 million, resulted in a decrease in gross profit on rental revenues of 6% to $12.9 million.  Sales revenues decreased 22% to $7.9 million.  Gross profit on sales increased 36% to $3.8 million, with gross margin on sales increasing to 47% from 27%, primarily due to higher margins on used equipment sales revenues in the fourth quarter of 2013.  Used equipment sales in the fourth quarter of 2012 included $3.7 million in proceeds from the sale of the TRS-Environmental product line at a loss of $0.4 million.  Selling and administrative expenses decreased 5% to $6.4 million, primarily due to the exit of the environmental test equipment business in November 2012.

Adler Tanks

For the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company's Adler Tanks division reported a 7% decrease in income from operations to $5.5 million.  Rental revenues decreased 2% to $17.8 million and depreciation expense increased 13% to $3.6 million, which resulted in a decrease in gross profit on rental revenues of 6% to $11.2 million.  Rental related services revenues increased 1% to $5.1 million, with gross profit on rental related services revenues increasing 8% to $0.7 million.  Selling and administrative expenses decreased 9% to $6.2 million, primarily due to lower bad debt expenses, partly offset by higher personnel and benefit costs.

Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP measures

To supplement the Company's financial data presented on a basis consistent with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), the Company presents "Adjusted EBITDA" which is defined by the Company as net income before interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation, amortization, and non-cash share-based compensation. The Company presents Adjusted EBITDA as a financial measure as management believes it provides useful information to investors regarding the Company's liquidity and financial condition and because management, as well as the Company's lenders, use this measure in evaluating the performance of the Company. 

Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as a supplement to GAAP measures to further evaluate the Company's period-to-period operating performance, compliance with financial covenants in the Company's revolving lines of credit and senior notes and the Company's ability to meet future capital expenditure and working capital requirements. Management believes the exclusion of non-cash charges, including share-based compensation, is useful in measuring the Company's cash available for operations and performance of the Company. Because management finds Adjusted EBITDA useful, the Company believes its investors will also find Adjusted EBITDA useful in evaluating the Company's performance.  

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, cash flows, or other consolidated income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP or as a measure of the Company's profitability or liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA is not in accordance with or an alternative for GAAP, and may be different from non−GAAP measures used by other companies.  Unlike EBITDA, which may be used by other companies or investors, Adjusted EBITDA does not include share-based compensation charges. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is of limited use in that it does not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and does not accurately reflect real cash flow. In addition, other companies may not use Adjusted EBITDA or may use other non-GAAP measures, limiting the usefulness of Adjusted EBITDA for purposes of comparison.  The Company's presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that the Company will not incur expenses that are the same as or similar to the adjustments in this presentation.  Therefore, Adjusted EBITDA should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.  The Company compensates for the limitations of Adjusted EBITDA by relying upon GAAP results to gain a complete picture of the Company's performance. Because Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure as defined by the SEC, the Company includes in the tables below reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.
