SP Plus Corporation Announces First Quarter 2019 Results

May 1, 2019 at 4:20 PM EDT
Strong start with robust gross profit growth; Affirms full-year 2019 guidance on all measures

CHICAGO, May 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SP Plus Corporation (Nasdaq:SP), a leading provider of parking, ground transportation, baggage handling and related services to commercial, institutional, municipal, and aviation clients throughout North America, today announced its first quarter 2019 results.

G Marc Baumann, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are very pleased that 2019 is off to a strong start.  Overall gross profit, including the results from the acquired Bags business, increased by 35% over the first quarter of last year.  Organic gross profit, excluding the Bags results, increased 10% over the first quarter of last year, and benefitted from a favorable lease contract modification that was not expected to occur until later this year as well as the non-recurrence of a 2018 non-cash write-off.  Our other key measures, such as EBITDA, EPS and free cash flow, all met or exceeded our expectations for the first quarter.  Although it’s still early in the year, our performance in the first quarter gives us the confidence to affirm our full-year 2019 guidance on all previously provided measures.”

Mr. Baumann continued, “As we move forward, our primary focus continues to be driving growth in new business, leveraging cross-selling opportunities with Bags, and maintaining our disciplined focus on safety.  On the new business front, we are making excellent progress deepening our national relationships with asset owners and managers.  We’ve also had success capitalizing on Bags cross-selling opportunities and recently won two new deals by leveraging our respective client relationships.  Overall, we remain highly energized and excited about the opportunities that lie ahead.”

First Quarter Operating Results

Reported and adjusted gross profit in the first quarter of 2019 was $53.2 million, compared to $39.4 million in the same quarter of 2018, an increase of $13.8 million or 35%.  The year-over-year increase in reported and adjusted gross profit was due to both the Bags acquisition in the fourth quarter of 2018 as well as strong organic growth of 10%.  Growth in organic gross profit benefitted from the non-recurrence of a first quarter 2018 non-cash write-off of $1.7 million related to an early lease termination and from the timing of a first quarter 2019 lease contract modification that was not expected to occur until later in the year.

Reported general and administrative (“G&A”) expenses for the first quarter of 2019 were $27.1 million as compared to $22.3 million in the same period of 2018, an increase of $4.8 million or 22%.  Adjusted G&A expenses for the first quarter of 2019 were $26.2 million, an increase of $5.2 million from the first quarter of 2018. In addition to the adjusted G&A associated with the acquired Bags business, adjusted G&A was higher than last year due primarily to higher compensation and benefit costs, including costs associated with the Company’s performance-based compensation program.

Reported net income attributable to SP Plus, including the results of the acquired Bags business, was $10.6 million in the first quarter of 2019 as compared to $15.3 million in the same period of 2018, which had included the net gain from the sale of a joint venture interest in Parkmobile.  Adjusted EBITDA increased by $8.8 million, or 49%, to $26.7 million for the first quarter of 2019, compared to $17.9 million on the same basis for the first quarter of 2018, due to the same factors that affected adjusted gross profit and adjusted G&A.

Reported earnings per share for the first quarter of 2019 was $0.47, as compared to $0.68 for the same period of 2018, with $0.33 of the decrease attributable to the net gain from the first quarter 2018 sale of a joint venture interest in Parkmobile.  Adjusted earnings per share was $0.60 for the first quarter of 2019, an increase of $0.17 per share, or 40%, compared to adjusted earnings per share of $0.43 for the first quarter of 2018.  As a reminder, adjusted earnings per share for both periods exclude amortization of all recognized intangible assets from completed acquisitions.  Higher 2019 operating income, driven by the Bags acquisition as well as by strong organic growth, was partially offset by higher interest expense on debt used to fund the Bags acquisition. 

Net cash of $6.9 million was used in first quarter 2019 operating activities, and resulting free cash flow was negative $10.6 million for the quarter as compared to negative free cash flow of $5.6 million in the first quarter of 2018.  As a reminder, the first quarter of the calendar year is generally the low point for free cash flow generation for the Company.  In addition, as previously indicated, the fourth quarter of 2018 benefitted from favorable working capital positions that reverted back to normal levels during the first quarter of 2019, as expected.  Given the results of the first quarter, the Company affirms its full-year free cash flow outlook.

Recent Developments

As of March 31, 2019, $9.8 million has been utilized under the $30 million stock repurchase plan authorized by the Company’s Board of Directors in May 2016, with the repurchase of $2.3 million occurring during the first quarter of 2019.  There remained $20.2 million under the authorization as of March 31, 2019.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company considers certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  Certain non-GAAP measures, such as adjusted gross profit, adjusted general and administrative expenses (adjusted G&A), adjusted net income attributable to SP Plus (adjusted net income), adjusted net income per share attributable to SP Plus (adjusted EPS), and adjusted EBITDA exclude items that management does not consider indicative of its core performance.  Such adjustments include, among other things: (i) restructuring, acquisition and integration related costs, including costs incurred to evaluate acquisitions; (ii) non-routine settlements; (iii) the amortization of acquired intangible assets; (iv) the impact of non-routine asset sales or dispositions; (v) the net loss or gains and the financial results related to sold businesses; (vi) the equity in income or losses from investment in unconsolidated entities; and (vii) non-routine tax items. Pre-tax adjustments are tax affected at a statutory tax rate of 26% for 2018 and 27% for 2019, for adjusted net income and adjusted EPS purposes.

The Company defines EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, as U.S GAAP net income attributable to the Company before (i) interest expense net of interest income, (ii) provision for income taxes, (iii) depreciation and amortization, (iv) gain on sale of a business or contribution of a business to an unconsolidated entity, and (v) equity in the gains or losses from investment in unconsolidated entities. Adjusted EBITDA excludes items that management does not consider indicative of its core performance, as defined per above. The Company believes that the presentation of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA provide useful information regarding the Company’s operating performance and are useful measures to facilitate comparisons to our historical and future operating results. The Company's definition of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

The Company defines free cash flow as net cash from operating activities, less cash used for investing activities (exclusive of cash used for acquisitions and net after-tax cash proceeds from the sale of businesses or joint venture related assets), less distribution to non-controlling interest, plus the effect of exchange rate changes on cash and cash equivalents. The Company believes that the presentation of free cash flow provides useful information regarding its ability to generate cash flow from business operations after funding capital expenditures, that can be used to, among other things, repay debt, fund strategic acquisitions, and return value to shareholders. The Company's definition of free cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to U.S. GAAP financial measures, to evaluate its operating and financial performance and to compare such performance to that of prior periods and to the performance of its competitors. Additionally, the Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making operational and financial decisions and in the Company’s budgeting and planning process. The Company believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures to investors helps investors evaluate the Company’s operating performance, profitability and business trends in a way that is consistent with how management evaluates such performance and consistent with guidance previously provided by the Company. Adjusted gross profit, adjusted G&A, adjusted net income, adjusted EPS, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, and free cash flow should not be considered in isolation of, or as alternatives to, or more meaningful indicators of the Company's operating performance or liquidity than, gross profit, G&A, net income, EPS, or net cash provided by operating activities, as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, the Company's calculation of these non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

For reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures, see the accompanying tables to this release.
