Mobile Mini Reports Q2’14 Results

TEMPE, Ariz.--()--Mobile Mini, Inc. (NASDAQ GS:MINI), the world’s leading supplier of portable storage solutions, today reported actual and adjusted financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. Total revenues were $106.5 million and leasing revenues were $98.0 million, up from $97.1 million and $88.0 million, respectively, for the same period last year. The Company’s second quarter net income was $9.3 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $14.4 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, respectively, for the second quarter of 2013. Prior year results included a charge of $40.2 million related to the impairment of certain leasing and other assets determined to be either non-core or uneconomic to repair. On an adjusted basis, second quarter net income was $10.8 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, compared to $11.7 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, respectively, for the second quarter of 2013.

Adjusted EBITDA was $36.0 million and adjusted EBITDA margin was 33.8% for the second quarter of 2014.

Second Quarter 2014 Highlights

  • Grew leasing revenues 11.4% year-over-year.
  • Drove second quarter sequential rental rates 2.3% higher than first quarter 2014 levels.
  • Increased rental rates by 7.6% year-over-year, with new units delivered at a 14.0% higher rate than the previous year.
  • Improved yield over the previous year by 11.5% to an all-time high of $689 per unit.
  • Achieved an adjusted EBITDA margin of 33.8%, while continuing to invest in repairs and maintenance associated with increased deliveries and repositioning assets to high utilization markets, resulting in incremental expense of approximately $4 million, or 4% of revenues.
  • Increased average fleet utilization to 66.6% from 62.0% in the second quarter of 2013.
  • Delivered free cash flow of $23.2 million compared to $18.3 million for the same period last year, making this quarter the 26th consecutive quarter of positive free cash flow.
  • Purchased two portable storage businesses effective June 30, 2014 and sold the Belfast, Northern Ireland location.

Erik Olsson, Mobile Mini’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “I am very pleased with our strong double-digit year-over-year increase in leasing revenues, especially considering that we implemented a major reorganization of our sales force during the quarter. In addition, excluding our incremental investments in fleet repairs and repositioning, we produced an adjusted EBITDA margin of approximately 38%, meaning our strategic plan is on track. We also continued to generate strong free cash flow, which we used in part to expand our footprint in North America and plan on entering additional new markets during the second half of the year.”

Mr. Olsson added, “We continue to execute on our strategic plan by refining and enhancing both our sales organization as well as our field operations. With another quarter behind us, we are even more confident on our stated expectations for 2014 of a year-over-year top-line growth rate and profitability exceeding that of 2013, resulting in increased free cash flow generation for the year.”

Dividend

The Company’s regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.17 per share will be paid on September 3, 2014 to shareholders of record on August 20, 2014.

EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, EBITDA margin, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted diluted EPS, and free cash flow are non-GAAP financial measures as defined by Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) rules.

The sale of our Netherlands operation in 2013 is reflected in the financial data herein as a discontinued operation.

This news release includes the financial measures “EBITDA”, “adjusted EBITDA”, “EBITDA margin”, “adjusted EBITDA margin”, “adjusted SG&A”, “adjusted net income”, “adjusted diluted earnings per share” and “free cash flow.” These measurements are deemed “non-GAAP financial measures” under rules of the SEC, including Regulation G. This non-GAAP financial information may be determined or calculated differently by other companies.

EBITDA is defined as net income before discontinued operation, net of taxes, interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and, if applicable, debt restructuring or extinguishment costs, including any write-off of deferred financing costs. We further adjust EBITDA to exclude non-cash share-based compensation expense and to ignore the effect of what we consider transactions or events not related to our core business to arrive at adjusted EBITDA. The GAAP financial measure that is most directly comparable to EBITDA is net cash provided by operating activities. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margins are calculated by dividing consolidated EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA by total revenues. The GAAP financial measure that is most directly comparable to EBITDA margin is operating margin, which represents operating income divided by revenues. We present adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin because we believe they provide useful information regarding our ability to meet our future debt payment requirements, capital expenditures and working capital requirements and they provide an overall evaluation of our financial condition. We include adjusted EBITDA in this earnings announcement to provide transparency to investors. Adjusted EBITDA has certain limitations as an analytical tool and should not be used 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 our profitability or our liquidity. EBITDA margin is presented along with the operating margin so as not to imply that more emphasis should be placed on it than the corresponding GAAP measure.

Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities, minus or plus, net cash used in or provided by investing activities, excluding acquisitions and certain transactions. Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure and is not intended to replace net cash provided by operating activities, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. We present free cash flow because we believe it provides useful information regarding our liquidity and ability to meet our short-term obligations. In particular, free cash flow indicates the amount of cash available after capital expenditures for, among other things, investments in the Company’s existing businesses, debt service obligations, pay authorized quarterly dividends and strategic acquisitions.

Adjusted SG&A, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share permit a comparative assessment of our SG&A expenses, net income and diluted earnings per share by excluding certain one-time expenses and restructuring expenses to make a more meaningful comparison of our operating performance.

Earlier in this release, we provided a reconciliation of these adjusted measurements to actual results along with a reconciliation of EBITDA to net cash provided by operating activities, net income to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA and net cash provided by operating activities to free cash flow.
