Feb 1, 2022

Search jobs 01-Feb-2022 Transcat Reports Record Third Quarter EBITDA on Service Revenue Growth of 22% and Strong Gross Margin Expansion Consolidated revenue of $50.9 million, up 15.5% versus prior year Service segment organic revenue grew 10.2% and gross margin expanded 180 basis points to 29.7% Consolidated EBITDA of $5.5 million, an increase of 20% versus prior year ROCHESTER, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Transcat, Inc. (Nasdaq: TRNS) (“Transcat” or the “Company”), a leading provider of accredited calibration, repair, inspection and laboratory instrument services and value-added distributor of professional grade handheld test, measurement and control instrumentation, today reported financial results for its third quarter and nine-month period ended December 25, 2021 (the “third quarter”) of fiscal year 2022, which ends March 26, 2022 (“fiscal 2022”). Results include the previously reported acquisitions of BioTek Services, Inc. (“BioTek”) effective December 16, 2020, Upstate Metrology (“Upstate”) effective April 29, 2021 and Cal OpEx Limited (d/b/a NEXA Enterprise Asset Management), (“NEXA”) effective August 31, 2021. “Our excellent third quarter results were driven by continued strong performance from our Service business.” commented Lee D. Rudow, President and CEO. “Service revenue grew 22% as robust demand in our highly regulated end markets drove 10.2% organic growth and was supplemented by 12% growth from acquisitions. Gross margin expanded 180 basis points to a third quarter record of 29.7% and was driven by operating leverage on our fixed costs from the strong organic growth and accretive gross margins from recent acquisitions.” “Our Distribution segment revenue grew 7.2%, modestly below our expectations, as vendor lead times extended further toward the end of the calendar year. However, orders remained strong and we enter our fiscal fourth quarter with a record $9 million in backlog, up $3.3 million from prior year. Overall, our Service segment performance drove third quarter consolidated adjusted EBITDA of $5.5 million, an increase of 20% from the prior year.” Mr. Rudow added, “Acquisitions continue to be an important part of our growth strategy. We are pleased with how the program has performed and the level of activity in our current pipeline. Our recent acquisitions enhance our long-term growth potential and have added unique capabilities, extended our geographic reach and increased our available market. The pipettes businesses we have acquired over the last two years, and Biotek, have created a powerful platform for growth and have exceeded our original expectations. NEXA, which has also performed well, is a natural complement to our core calibration offerings and expands our reach into Ireland and the attractive market for asset management services. Additionally, in late December, we announced the acquisition of Tangent Labs, which gives us new local presence in Indiana, an attractive life sciences market, and Huntsville, Alabama, which has a large aerospace and defense market.” Third Quarter Fiscal 2022 Review (Results are compared with the third quarter of the fiscal year ended March 27, 2021 (“fiscal 2021”)) ($ in thousands)   *See Note 1 on page 4 for a description of this non-GAAP financial measure and page 9 for the Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation table. Consolidated revenue was $50.9 million, an increase of 15.5%. Consolidated gross profit was $13.6 million, an increase of $2.4 million, or 21.3%, and gross margin expanded 130 basis points to 26.8% due to strong operational performance in the Service segment. Operating expenses increased $2.5 million, or 29.2%, driven by incremental expenses from acquired businesses, increases in employee and stock compensation costs and investments in technology. Adjusted EBITDA was $5.5 million and increased by 19.8%. Net income per diluted share decreased to $0.21 from $0.23. Service segment achieved strong revenue growth and gross margin expansion Represents the accredited calibration, repair, inspection and laboratory instrument services business (59.4% of total revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2022).

Service segment revenue increased 22.0% to $30.2 million and included $2.9 million of incremental revenue from acquisitions. Organic revenue growth was 10.2% and was driven by strong end market demand and continued market share gains. The segment gross margin increased by 180 basis points due to operating leverage on our fixed costs and accretive gross margins from recent acquisitions. Distribution shows revenue increases Represents the sale and rental of new and used professional grade handheld test, measurement and control instrumentation (40.6% of total revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2022). ($ in thousands)   *See Note 1 on page 4 for a description of this non-GAAP financial measure and page 9 for the Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation table. Distribution sales increased 7.2% on improved market conditions and an easier comparison to the prior year period, which was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Distribution segment gross margins were flat compared to prior year. Nine Month Review (Results are compared with the first nine months of fiscal 2021) Total revenue was $149.1 million, an increase of 19.7%. Consolidated gross profit was up $9.6 million, or 29.9%, and gross margin expanded to 28.0% or 220 basis points. Consolidated operating expenses increased $6.6 million, or 25.6%, driven by incremental expenses from acquired businesses, increases in employee and stock compensation costs, investments in technology and one-time transaction expenses related to acquisitions that closed in the fiscal year. As a result, consolidated operating income was $9.6 million compared with $6.6 million in last fiscal year’s period. Net income was $8.3 million, or $1.10 per diluted share, compared with $4.6 million, or $0.61 per diluted share. Adjusted EBITDA was $18.7 million, an increase of 40.5% compared to prior year. See Note 1 on page 4 for a description of this non-GAAP financial measure and page 9 for the Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation table. Balance Sheet Highlights At December 25, 2021, the Company had $48.3 million available for borrowing under its secured revolving credit facility. Total debt of $40.8 million was up $21.2 million from fiscal 2021 year-end. The Company’s leverage ratio, as defined in the credit agreement, was 1.47 at December 25, 2021, compared with 0.94 at March 27, 2021. Outlook Mr. Rudow concluded, “We are incredibly proud of our dedicated team, which has successfully executed through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and consistently delivered excellent results. We have a strong balance sheet, sustainable Service segment gross margins and an active M&A pipeline. We are confident that the strength of our unique and enhanced value proposition and our new customer pipeline positions us well for continued strong organic growth. “For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022, which is historically the strongest quarter of our fiscal year due to the seasonality of our Service business, we expect Service revenue growth to be in the high-teens. We expect Service gross margin to be in the range of 35% as we benefit from a seasonally higher level of volume. Distribution revenue is expected to grow high single-digits in the fourth quarter. Total operating expenses are expected to increase approximately $0.5 million sequentially from the third quarter and will include expenses associated with our recent acquisition of Tangent Labs.” Transcat expects its income tax rate for fiscal 2022 to range between 14% to 15%, unchanged from previous expectations.

NOTE 1 – Non-GAAP Financial Measures In addition to reporting net income, a U.S. generally accepted accounting principle (“GAAP”) measure, we present Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock compensation expense, restructuring expense, non-cash loss on sale of building and acquisition related transaction expenses), which is a non-GAAP measure. The Company’s management believes Adjusted EBITDA is an important measure of operating performance because it allows management, investors and others to evaluate and compare the performance of its core operations from period to period by removing the impact of the capital structure (interest), tangible and intangible asset base (depreciation and amortization), taxes, stock-based compensation expense and other items, which is not always commensurate with the reporting period in which it is included. As such, the Company uses Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of performance when evaluating its business segments and as a basis for planning and forecasting. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and is not calculated through the application of GAAP. As such, it should not be considered as a substitute for the GAAP measure of net income and, therefore, should not be used in isolation of, rather in conjunction with, the GAAP measure. Adjusted EBITDA, as presented, may produce results that vary from the GAAP measure and may not be comparable to a similarly defined non-GAAP measure used by other companies. See the attached Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation table below. ABOUT TRANSCAT Transcat, Inc. is a leading provider of accredited calibration, repair, inspection and laboratory instrument services.
