SP Plus Corporation Announces Third Quarter and Year-to-Date 2017 Results

Reports strong net income, EPS and EBITDA growth in third quarter and first nine months; Maintains full-year outlook

CHICAGO, Nov. 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SP Plus Corporation (Nasdaq:SP), a leading national provider of parking, ground transportation and related products and services to commercial, institutional and municipal clients throughout North America, today announced its third quarter and nine-month 2017 results.

G Marc Baumann, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "I am very pleased with the strong results achieved in the third quarter despite some impact from the three named hurricanes that hit the Gulf Coast, South Florida and Puerto Rico.  Reported gross profit increased 5% and adjusted gross profit increased 2% in the third quarter, with much of the growth driven by continued favorable trends in our casualty and health insurance programs.  Third quarter results also reflect solid overall new business activity and strong results in our Airport Division.  Our Commercial Division continues to experience somewhat mixed performance across geographic and vertical markets."

Mr. Baumann continued, "Consistent with our message over the last several quarters, we remain focused on executing key initiatives that will drive sustainable, long-term growth.  We're already seeing the benefits of our vertical market strategy in the successful expansion of our hospitality portfolio.  And our commitment to risk management and safety programs continues to reduce our total cost of risk and benefit our bottom line.  Given our year-to-date performance, we are reaffirming our full-year guidance despite the impact related to the hurricanes that we experienced in the third quarter and their expected ongoing impact on the fourth quarter." 

Mr. Baumann concluded, "Finally, I am extremely proud of our employees, many of whom participated directly in hurricane recovery efforts in addition to donating personal funds, which the Company matched, to assist colleagues impacted by the hurricanes.  Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the impacted communities."

Third Quarter Operating Results

Reported gross profit in the third quarter of 2017 was $45.9 million, compared to $43.9 million in the same quarter of 2016, an increase of $2.0 million or 5%.  Third quarter adjusted gross profit was $45.8 million, an increase of $1.1 million, or 2%, as compared to the third quarter of 2016.  A more favorable reduction in prior-year casualty loss reserve estimates and lower healthcare claim costs were partially offset by an estimated $0.7 million impact related to the hurricanes. 

Reported general and administrative ("G&A") expenses for the third quarter of 2017 were $19.6 million as compared to $20.3 million in the third quarter of 2016, a decrease of $0.7 million or 3%.  Adjusted G&A expenses for the third quarter of 2017 were $19.5 million, an increase of $0.2 million, or 1%, from the third quarter of last year.  The year-over-year increase was due primarily to certain G&A investments to support initiatives, partially offset by a lower expense for performance-based compensation in the third quarter of 2017 as well as the benefit from past cost-reduction initiatives.

Reported net income attributable to SP Plus was $11.2 million in the third quarter of 2017 as compared to $7.0 million in the same period of 2016.  EBITDA was $25.6 million for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $22.9 million for the same period of 2016.  Adjusted EBITDA increased by 3% to $25.5 million for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $24.7 million on the same basis for the third quarter of 2016.

Reported earnings per share for the third quarter of 2017 was $0.50, as compared to $0.31 for the same period of 2016.  Adjusted earnings per share was also $0.50 for the third quarter of 2017, an increase of 35% compared to adjusted earnings per share of $0.37 for the third quarter of 2016.  In addition to EBITDA growth, a significant decrease in depreciation and amortization expense, partially due to certain merger-related intangible assets that have been fully amortized, a lower effective tax rate and lower interest expense all benefitted the year-over-year net income and earnings per share comparison.

Year-to-Date Operating Results

Reported gross profit for the first nine months of 2017 was $143.9 million, compared to $129.3 million in the same period of 2016, an increase of $14.6 million or 11%.  Of that increase, $8.5 million was related to earnings from the Company's proportionate share of a second quarter 2017 joint venture (equity method investee) transaction.  The earnings realized from the joint venture transaction have been excluded from adjusted results.  On an adjusted basis, nine-month adjusted gross profit was $135.5 million, an increase of $5.6 million, or 4%, as compared to the same period of 2016.  The Company experienced significantly lower healthcare claim costs and a more favorable reduction in prior-year casualty claims reserve estimates in the first nine months of this year relative to the same period last year, which was the primary driver of the year-over-year increase in adjusted gross profit.  Airport Division performance and new business activity also contributed to year-over-year gross profit growth.

Reported general and administrative ("G&A") expenses for the first nine months of 2017 were $63.3 million as compared to $67.0 million in the same period of last year, representing a decrease of $3.7 million or 6%.  Adjusted G&A expenses for the first nine months of 2017 were $62.1 million, a decrease of $1.5 million, or 2%, from the same period of 2016, which continues to be driven primarily by past cost-reduction measures, net of investments in new initiatives.

Reported net income attributable to SP Plus was $33.4 million for the first nine months of 2017, compared to $13.5 million in the same period of 2016.  EBITDA was $78.1 million for the first nine months of 2017, compared to $60.1 million for the same period of 2016.  Adjusted EBITDA increased by 10%, or $6.6 million, to $70.7 million for the first nine months of 2017, compared to $64.1 million for the same period of 2016.  Reported net income and EBITDA for the first nine months of 2017 both benefitted from the Company's earnings realized from a joint venture transaction of $8.5 million pre-tax, or $5.0 million after tax, which have been excluded from adjusted results.

Reported earnings per share for the first nine months of 2017 was $1.48, as compared to $0.60 for the same period of 2016.  Earnings realized from the Company's proportionate share of a joint venture transaction contributed $0.22 per share to the year-over-year increase in reported earnings per share.  Adjusted earnings per share was $1.30 for the first nine months of 2017, an increase of 60% compared to adjusted earnings per share of $0.81 for the same period of 2016.  In addition to growth in adjusted EBITDA, significantly lower depreciation and amortization expense, primarily due to certain merger-related intangible assets that have been fully amortized, a lower effective tax rate and lower interest expense also contributed to the year-over-year increase in adjusted earnings per share.

Net cash provided by operating activities for the first nine months of 2017 was $21.4 million, a decrease of $9.2 million from the same period of 2016.  Free cash flow of $17.1 million was generated during the first nine months of 2017, as compared to $18.0 million generated during the same period last year.  A temporary unfavorable swing in working capital and higher cash taxes, partially offset by lower capital expenditures, resulted in the year-over-year decrease in free cash flow.  Working capital is expected to return to a more normalized position by the end of the year.

2017 Outlook

The Company reaffirms its full-year outlook on all previously provided measures, except that reported EPS and EBITDA (on an unadjusted basis) will be favorably impacted by the $8.5 million pre-tax earnings ($0.22 per share, after tax) from the Company's proportionate share of a joint venture transaction.

The Company has tried to identify these statements by using words such as "expect," "anticipate," "believe," "could," "should," "estimate," "intend," "may," "plan," "guidance," "will," "are to be" and similar terms and phrases, but such words, terms and phrases are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements.

Reimbursed Management Contract Revenue and Reimbursed Management Contract Expense Correction

During the third quarter 2017, the Company corrected reimbursed management contract revenue and reimbursed management contract expense for the applicable periods presented, whereby the Company had been overstating reimbursed management contract revenue and reimbursed management contract expense included within the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income in equal and off-setting amounts.  As a result, with respect to income statements attached to this release, the Company has made corrections which have resulted in the following: (i) a reduction of reimbursed management contract revenue of $11.9 million and $35.2 million and a reduction of reimbursed management contract expense by $11.9 million and $35.2 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively, and (ii) a reduction of reimbursed management contract revenue of $24.4 million and a reduction reimbursed management contract expense of $24.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, which represents the correction of the overstatement previously reported for the six-month period ended June 30, 2017. The correction had no impact on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, Statements of Income, Comprehensive Income or Cash Flows, except as described above with respect to the Income Statements, and had no impact on any of the reported or non-GAAP financial information presented above in the text of this release.  Management has evaluated the effects of the previous misstatements, both qualitatively and quantitatively, and concluded that these corrections were immaterial to any current or prior interim or annual periods that were affected.

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, including gross profit plus costs incurred related to non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases and less gross profit impact related to asset sales or dispositions (also referred to as adjusted gross profit); general and administrative expenses less restructuring, merger and integration related costs, costs related to asset sales or dispositions, non-routine settlements, and costs incurred related to contemplated transactions (also referred to as adjusted G&A); net income and net income per share attributable to SP Plus plus costs incurred related to non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases, restructuring, merger and integration related costs, net income impact related to asset sales or dispositions, non-routine settlements, and costs incurred related to contemplated transactions, with all adjustments tax affected at a statutory tax rate of 41%, and eliminating non-routine tax adjustments (also referred to as adjusted net income attributable to SP Plus and adjusted EPS); EBITDA and EBITDA plus costs incurred related to non-routine structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases, restructuring, merger and integration related costs, non-routine settlements, costs incurred related to contemplated transactions, and subtracting the EBITDA impact related to asset sales or dispositions (also referred to as adjusted EBITDA); and free cash flow. 

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 attributable to SP Plus, 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 such non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

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 an unconsolidated entity.  Adjusted EBITDA further adjusts EBITDA by adding costs incurred related to non-routine items including, but not limited to, structural and other repairs at legacy Central Parking leases, restructuring, merger and integration related costs, non-routine settlements, and costs incurred related to contemplated transactions, and subtracting gross profit and G&A impacts related to asset sales or dispositions.

The Company defines free cash flow as net cash from operating activities, less cash used for investing activities (exclusive of acquisitions and net proceeds from the sale of businesses), less distribution to noncontrolling 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 recurring cash provided by operating activities after certain expenditures. It also demonstrates the Company's ability to execute its financial strategy. The Company's presentation of free cash flow has material limitations. The Company's free cash flow does not represent its cash flow available for discretionary expenditures because it excludes certain expenditures that are required or to which the Company has committed, such as debt service requirements. The Company's definition of free cash flow 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.
