BONITA SPRINGS, Fla.--()--Herc Holdings Inc. (NYSE: HRI) ("Herc Holdings" or the "Company") today reported financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2020. Equipment rental revenue was $402.3 million and total revenues were $456.7 million in the third quarter of 2020, compared to $459.6 million and $508.1 million, respectively, for the same period last year. The Company reported net income of $39.9 million, or $1.35 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2020, compared to $9.4 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, in the same 2019 period. Third quarter 2020 adjusted net income was $39.8 million, or $1.35 per diluted share, compared to $43.2 million, or $1.48 per diluted share, in 2019. See page A-5 for the adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share calculations.

"Volume improved sequentially throughout the third quarter as many of our markets steadily recovered from the impact of COVID-19 and normal seasonality returned to the business," said Larry Silber, president and chief executive officer. "We continued to improve adjusted EBITDA margin as our operating efficiency and cost control initiatives reduced third quarter costs compared to the prior year. Despite the challenging business environment, our customer and industry diversification strategy continued to demonstrate the resilience of our business model.

"We continue to adhere to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's guidelines in our operations and interactions with customers and adapt to more stringent municipal and state mandates. Our highest priority is to ensure the health and safety of our team members and customers," Silber added.

2020 Third Quarter Highlights

  • Equipment rental revenue was $402.3 million compared to $459.6 million in the prior-year period. While the COVID-19 business slowdown impacted volume and pricing, monthly results continued to improve sequentially throughout the third quarter.
  • Total revenues were $456.7 million compared to $508.1 million in the prior-year period. The year-over-year decline of $51.4 million was related primarily to lower equipment rental revenue, offset by an increase in the sales of rental equipment of $9.9 million.
  • Pricing declined 0.8% compared to the same period in 2019.
  • Dollar utilization was 37.6% compared with 40.8% in the prior-year period, reflecting lower volume, fleet mix and pricing.
  • Direct operating expenses (DOE) of $169.4 million decreased 14.3% compared to the prior-year period. The $28.3 million decline reflected savings in nearly every category of expense, and was primarily related to lower re-rent expense, personnel-related costs, and transportation and maintenance expense.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) declined 19.9% to $61.0 million in 2020 compared to $76.2 million in the prior-year period. The $15.2 million decline was primarily attributed to reductions in selling and travel expenses, as well as lower bad debt expense due to continued improvement in collections.
  • Interest expense decreased to $22.4 million compared to $81.9 million in the prior-year period. The decrease was primarily related to the $53.6 million debt extinguishment expense related to the refinancing of the Company's Notes and ABL Credit Facility in 2019, and lower interest expense related to lower balances of the Company's ABL Credit Facility in 2020.
  • The income tax provision was $11.7 million compared with a tax benefit of $4.2 million for the same period last year.
  • The Company reported net income of $39.9 million compared to $9.4 million in the prior-year period. Adjusted net income was $39.8 million compared to $43.2 million in the prior-year period.
  • Adjusted EBITDA declined 6.1% to $196.7 million compared to $209.4 million in the prior-year period. The decrease was primarily due to lower volume and pricing.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 190 basis points to 43.1% compared with 41.2% in the prior-year period.

2020 Nine Months Highlights

  • Equipment rental revenue was $1,116.4 million compared to $1,244.8 million in the comparable prior-year period. The 10.3% or $128.4 million decline was primarily due to lower volume related to the impact of COVID-19.
  • Total revenues were $1,260.9 million compared to $1,458.9 million in the prior-year period. The economic slowdown related to the COVID-19 pandemic impacted all of the Company's revenue streams in 2020. Lower equipment rental revenue and sales of rental equipment were the primary factors contributing to the 13.6%, or $198.0 million, decline compared to the prior-year period.
  • Pricing increased 0.4% compared to the same period in 2019.
  • Dollar utilization was 34.7% compared with 38.1% in the prior year, primarily a result of lower volume, mix and flat pricing.
  • DOE fell 12.5%, or $72.0 million, to $503.3 million, compared to the prior-year period. The decline was primarily related to lower personnel-related expense as a result of furloughs, lower overtime expense and lower transportation and maintenance costs.
  • SG&A decreased 15.2% to $187.6 million compared to $221.2 million in the prior-year period. The $33.6 million decline was primarily attributed to reductions in selling and travel expenses, as well as lower bad debt expense due to continued improvement in collections.
  • The Company recorded restructuring expense of $0.7 million primarily related to personnel reductions compared with $7.8 million in the prior-year period associated with closures of underperforming branches.
  • Impairment expense was $9.5 million and consisted of the partial impairment of a long-term receivable related to the sale of a former joint venture, the closure of two branch locations last year, and the sale of two locations in the third quarter of 2020. There was no impairment expense in the 2019 comparable period.
  • Interest expense decreased to $70.1 million compared to $146.4 million in the prior-year period. The decrease was primarily related to the $53.6 million debt extinguishment expense in 2019, lower average outstanding balances on the Company's ABL Credit Facility, and lower rates on the Company's 2027 Notes in 2020.
  • Income tax provision was $10.9 million compared with a benefit of $2.0 million for the same period last year.
  • The Company reported net income of $38.2 million compared to $12.4 million in the prior-year period. The adjusted net income was $48.2 million compared to $52.8 million in the prior-year period.
  • Adjusted EBITDA declined 6.2% to $493.7 million compared to $526.6 million in the prior-year period. The decline was primarily due to lower volume.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 310 basis points to 39.2% compared with 36.1% in the prior-year period.

Capital Expenditures - Fleet

  • The Company reported net fleet capital expenditures of $159.1 million for the nine months of 2020. Gross fleet capital expenditures were $273.2 million compared with $506.7 million in the comparable prior-year period. Proceeds from disposals were $114.1 million compared with $156.9 million last year. See page A-5 for the calculation of net fleet capital expenditures.
  • As of September 30, 2020, the Company's total fleet was approximately $3.73 billion at OEC.
  • Average fleet at OEC decreased year-over-year by 4.5% in the third quarter and by 1.1% for the nine months compared to the prior-year periods.
  • Average fleet age was 47 months as of September 30, 2020 compared with 44 months in the comparable prior-year period.

Disciplined Capital Management

  • The Company generated $252.4 million in free cash flow in the nine months of 2020, compared with $65.5 million in the same period in 2019.
  • Cash and cash equivalents were $53.8 million and unused commitments under the ABL Credit Facility and AR Facility contributed to $1.3 billion of liquidity, as of September 30, 2020. Net debt was $1.8 billion as of September 30, 2020, with net leverage of 2.5x compared to 3.0x in the same prior-year period.

Outlook for the Year

The Company raised adjusted EBITDA guidance for the full year.

Adjusted EBITDA:

$625 million to $650 million

 

$655 million to $675 million

Net fleet capital expenditures:

$190 million to $210 million

 

$190 million to $210 million

"Our improving efficiency in the third quarter reflects our ability to manage through challenging times," said Silber. "We currently estimate fourth quarter fleet on rent is likely to decline approximately 4% to 6% and rental revenue to decline approximately 6% to 8% year-over-year. Adjusted EBITDA margin for the fourth quarter and full year should improve versus the comparable prior-year periods. Our strong free cash flow position for the nine-month period ending September 30, 2020, is already substantially higher than the amount we generated for the full year 2019, and should continue to improve during the remainder of the year. With reduced leverage and ample liquidity, we are well positioned for 2021.

"I'm proud of what our Herc team members have accomplished year to date. We know we have to prove ourselves every day and we are committed to helping our customers operate efficiently, effectively and safely," he added.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes forward-looking statements as that term is defined by the federal securities laws, including statements concerning our business plans and strategy; projected profitability, performance or cash flows, future capital expenditures, anticipated financing needs, business trends, the impact of and our response to COVID-19, liquidity and capital management and other information that is not historical information. Forward looking statements are generally identified by the words "estimates," "expects," "anticipates," "projects," "plans," "intends," "believes," "forecasts," and future or conditional verbs, such as "will," "should," "could" or "may," as well as variations of such words or similar expressions. All forward-looking statements are based upon our current expectations and various assumptions and, there can be no assurance that our current expectations will be achieved. They are subject to future events, risks and uncertainties - many of which are beyond our control - as well as potentially inaccurate assumptions, that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Further information on the risks that may affect our business is included in filings we make with the Securities and Exchange Commission from time to time, including our most recent annual report on Form 10-K, subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, and in our other SEC filings. We undertake no obligation to update or revise forward-looking statements that have been made to reflect events or circumstances that arise after the date made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

Information Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to results calculated according to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), the Company has provided certain information in this release that is not calculated according to GAAP (“non-GAAP”), such as EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per diluted common share and free cash flow. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate operating performance and period-over-period performance of our core business without regard to potential distortions, and believes that investors will likewise find these non-GAAP measures useful in evaluating the Company’s performance. These measures are frequently used by security analysts, institutional investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP and, as calculated, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. For the definitions of these terms, further information about management’s use of these measures as well as a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the supplemental schedules that accompany this release.

SUPPLEMENTAL SCHEDULES
EBITDA AND ADJUSTED EBITDA RECONCILIATIONS
Unaudited
(In millions)

EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA - EBITDA represents the sum of net income (loss), provision (benefit) for income taxes, interest expense, net, depreciation of rental equipment and non-rental depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA plus the sum of merger and acquisition related costs, restructuring and restructuring related charges, spin-off costs, non-cash stock-based compensation charges, loss on extinguishment of debt (which is included in interest expense, net), impairment charges, gain (loss) on the disposal of a business and certain other items. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA do not purport to be alternatives to net income as an indicator of operating performance. Additionally, neither measure purports to be an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity, as they do not consider certain cash requirements such as interest payments and tax payments.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin - Adjusted EBITDA Margin, calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by Total Revenues, is a commonly used profitability ratio.

FREE CASH FLOW
Unaudited
(In millions)

Free cash flow represents net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less rental equipment expenditures and non-rental capital expenditures, plus proceeds from disposal of rental equipment, proceeds from disposal of property and equipment, and other investing activities. Free cash flow is used by management in analyzing the Company’s ability to service and repay its debt and to forecast future periods. However, this measure does not represent funds available for investment or other discretionary uses since it does not deduct cash used to service debt or for other non-discretionary expenditures.
