Highlights to Acquisition Activity

Acquisitions

On August 1, 2019, the Company acquired substantially all of the assets of New York-based Commercial Laundry Products, Inc., Professional Laundry Systems of PA, Inc., and Professional Laundry Systems West, Inc. (collectively, “PLS”). The addition of PLS expands the Company’s geographic footprint and increases its market share in the Northeast. The results of operations of PLS subsequent to the August 1, 2019 closing date are reflected in the Company’s financial performance for the current periods.

Additionally, on December 16, 2019, the Company entered into a definitive agreement to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Sevierville, Tennessee-based Laundry Systems of Tennessee and certain affiliated entities (collectively “LST”), which distribute commercial, industrial, and vended laundry products and provide related installation and maintenance services to the new and replacement markets of the commercial laundry industry. The Company completed the LST acquisition on January 31, 2020; therefore, the results of operations of LST are not reflected in either of the current periods.

Earlier today, the Company announced that it entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Commercial Laundry Equipment Company Inc. (“CLE”), a Richmond, Virginia based distributor of on-premise and vended laundry products and a provider of related installation and maintenance services. CLE has a large customer base that is loyal to the knowledge, experience, and capabilities of its sales and service organization. Given that CLE serves customers in a geography where EVI already has three businesses operating with wide-ranging capabilities and with distinct product representations, the Company believes CLE’s customers will benefit from EVI’s regional capabilities and from all of the resources and benefits available through EVI to enhance the customer value proposition.

Henry M. Nahmad, Chairman and CEO of the Company, commented: “We take great pride in our Company’s reputation as a friendly, thoughtful, and disciplined buyer and builder of industrial distribution and service businesses. Our approach and our record have been instrumental in the number of new and attractive acquisition opportunities available to our Company. We continue to pursue these opportunities and remain focused on executing our long-term growth strategy.”

Highlights to Financial Performance

Impact of “Build” Investments

We believe that EVI’s operating model provides its business units and their entrepreneurial leaders the necessary autonomy to invest in achieving revenue and market share growth. To that end, the Company has invested, and continues to invest, in its acquired businesses with a focus on increasing revenue and market share. Such investments include, but are not limited to, increasing and improving their sales organizations, broadening their portfolio of products, and expanding service operations and capabilities. In connection with these efforts, the two-year compounded annual revenue growth rate for the four subsidiaries that the Company has owned for at least 24 months as of December 31, 2019 was 8.0%1.

Revenue

The increases in revenue for the six- and three-months periods ended December 31, 2019 were due to the results of operations of acquired businesses that were not consolidated into the Company’s financial statements for all or part of the prior year periods. Additionally, the increases in revenue reflect the effectiveness of certain sales growth strategies executed by the Company to increase market share in existing geographies and favorable trends and dynamics across the commercial laundry industry.

Gross Margin

The decrease in gross margin for the three-month period ended December 31, 2019 reflects the Company’s aggressive efforts to build market share by increasing the installed base of commercial laundry equipment the Company represents. The Company’s strategic goal is to build a larger and recurring customer base into which the Company may increasingly sell or lease complementary equipment, sell additional products and enter into contracted service relationships, all of which may generate higher gross margins.

Operating Income and Adjusted EBITDA

Operating income and Adjusted EBITDA reflect the Company’s continued investment in its acquired businesses as part of its long-term growth strategy, which includes increased expenses related to recruiting, training, and deploying sales and service professionals, and efforts to cultivate future leaders of our businesses. The Company also strives to develop and establish best operating practices across its acquired businesses through consistent collaboration between its leadership teams. Operating results also reflect increased investment aimed to modernize its acquired businesses through the implementation of advanced technologies from which the Company may achieve operating efficiencies. Additionally, operating expenses have increased due to the Company’s growth, including increased public company and related expenses, and continued investment in the pursuit of various acquisition and strategic opportunities. EVI believes these investments and initiatives will have a positive impact on the Company’s ability to achieve its long-term growth goals.

Balance Sheet and Operating Cash Flows

During the six-months ended December 31, 2019, the Company generated a record $9.6 million in operating cash flows reflecting a $19.5 million improvement over the same period of the prior fiscal year. This improvement resulted in a 19% decrease in net debt from $36 million at June 30, 2019 to $29 million at December 31, 2019.

Henry M. Nahmad, Chairman and CEO commented: “Our results are a favorable indication that the investments we are making in our acquired businesses are yielding attractive organic revenue growth and this quarter in particular reflects our increased focused on market share growth in existing geographies. We intend to continue making such investments and collaborating with our loyal and long-term focused supplier partners, while pursuing operating efficiencies through the consolidation of regional operations, the establishment of best operating practices, and the implementation of advanced technologies. We believe that the combination of revenue growth and an increasingly modern and efficient operation will lead to the achievement of a high-level of operating leverage across our Company over the long-term.”

Footnote

1 Given the nature of the Company’s business, as more thoroughly described in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2019, it is important to note that the timing of revenue recognition related to the sale and installation of industrial, on-premise, and vended laundry products are occasionally impacted by delays related to installation schedules. Accordingly, the Company believes that the compounded annual revenue growth rate formula set forth above best captures the Company’s revenue growth rate trend. Also, and as previously discussed, under the accounting standards for revenue recognition adopted by the Company on July 1, 2018, gross profit on delivered but uninstalled equipment sold under longer-term contracts is deferred and recognized as installation is completed instead of upon the shipment of equipment.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In this press release, EVI discloses the non-GAAP financial measure of Adjusted EBITDA, which EVI defines as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, and amortization of share-based compensation. Adjusted EBITDA is determined by adding interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, and amortization of share-based compensation to net income as shown in the attached Condensed Consolidated Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, Amortization, and Amortization of Share-based Compensation. EVI considers Adjusted EBITDA to be an important indicator of its operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA is also used by companies, lenders, investors and others because it excludes certain items that can vary widely across different industries or among companies within the same industry. For example, interest expense can be dependent on a company’s capital structure, debt levels and credit ratings, and the tax positions of companies can vary because of their differing abilities to take advantage of tax benefits and because of the tax policies of the jurisdictions in which they operate. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity, including cash flow, derived in accordance with GAAP, or to any other method of analyzing EVI’s results as reported under GAAP. In addition, EVI’s definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to definitions of Adjusted EBITDA or other similarly titled measures used by other companies.
