SUGAR LAND, Texas, Aug. 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Team, Inc. (NYSE:TISI) today announced financial results for the fiscal year ending May 31, 2014. Team reported earnings, adjusted for non-routine items, of $31.5 million ($1.48 per diluted share), versus adjusted net income of $32.8 million ($1.55 per diluted share) for the prior year. Revenues for the year ended May 31, 2014, were $750 million, a 5% increase compared to revenues of $714 million for the prior year. Fourth quarter revenues and adjusted earnings were $211 million and $13.3 million ($0.63 per diluted share), respectively, compared to $201 million and $11.5 million ($0.54 per share) in last year's fourth quarter. (Adjusted earnings exclude the impact of the Venezuelan currency revaluation discussed below as well as certain other non-routine items specified in the accompanying tables).

Operating results for the fourth quarter were consistent with the Company's pre-announcement in June 2014, except that adjusted earnings per share were slightly higher than pre-announcement results due to a lower effective tax rate for the quarter and for the full fiscal year.

"While fiscal year 2014 was negatively impacted by very difficult weather conditions in the third quarter and project delays throughout the year, especially related to many of Quest's more complex international projects, we are well positioned to take advantage of what we believe will be robust market opportunities in fiscal 2015 and beyond," said Philip J. Hawk, Team's Chairman and CEO.

Fourth Quarter Highlights
  • Earnings:
    • Adjusted earnings improved by $0.09 per share, or 16%, over prior year's fourth quarter.
    • Adjusted EBIT improved 7% to $20.4 million in the quarter (9.7% of revenues).
    • Adjusted EBITDA improved 7% to $27 million in the quarter (12.7% of revenues).
    • Impacted by an additional non-routine currency exchange loss of $2.1 million associated with Venezuelan business.
  • Revenues:
    • IHT Business Group grew 9%, led by inspection services revenue growth of 18% in the quarter.
    • Mechanical Services Group was flat overall, but on-stream services grew 8% in the quarter.
    • Quest Integrity grew only 5% in the quarter as a result of project deferrals, but grew 15% for the year.
    • In total, U.S. revenues grew 11% in the quarter.
  • Margins:
    • 50 basis point improvement in gross margin (31.4% compared to 30.9%) in the quarter.
    • Margin improvement primarily due to improved performance by the Mechanical Services Group (12% operating margin percentage compared to 11% in prior year quarter).

Venezuelan Revaluation

In June 2014, Team announced that it incurred an additional $2.1 million currency exchange loss in the fourth quarter associated with a further revaluation of its Venezuelan business due to foreign currency exchange rate devaluations. For the fiscal year, non-routine currency exchange losses associated with Venezuelan revaluations totaled $4 million on a pre-tax basis.

GAAP Earnings

Team's net income available to shareholders reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (including non-routine items) was $29.9 million ($1.40 per diluted share) for fiscal year 2014 as compared to $32.4 million ($1.53 per diluted share) in the prior year. Certain non-routine items have been excluded when arriving at adjusted earnings. A reconciliation of net income, reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, to adjusted net income is contained in the tables below.

FY2015 Earnings Expectations

As disclosed in the June 2014 pre-announcement, the Company has adopted a budget for fiscal year 2015 of $842 million in revenue with planned earnings of $2.00 per share. "We acknowledge that our recent track record in issuing earnings guidance has not been as good as we would like," said Ted W. Owen, Team's President and Chief Financial Officer. "Consequently, we are suspending the issuance of formal guidance until we can demonstrate that we can forecast our results better. Until then, we will report our internal expectations, and discuss our degree of confidence in meeting those internal expectations," said Mr. Owen.
