Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises Announces First Quarter 2019 Results


– The Babcock & Wilcox segment increased revenues by 18.5% and adjusted EBITDA by 115%
– The SPIG segment returned to profitability and increased adjusted EBITDA by $8 million
– Consolidated operating loss was $74.5 million lower, and adjusted EBITDA improved by $72.7 million

(BARBERTON, Ohio – May 9, 2019) – Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises, Inc. (“B&W Enterprises”) (NYSE: BW) announced today first quarter 2019 revenues of $231.9 million, a decrease of $21.2 million, or 8.4%, compared to the first quarter of 2018. The decrease was primarily the result of several EPC contracts being in the final stages of completion in the first quarter of 2019. GAAP net loss from continuing operations in first quarter 2019 improved to $49.9 million compared to $116.8 million in first quarter 2018. Adjusted EBITDA also improved by $72.7 million to negative $5.0 million compared to negative $77.6 million in the prior year period. All amounts referred to in this release are on a continuing operations basis, unless otherwise noted. A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is provided in the exhibits to this release.

“Our performance in the first quarter of 2019 reflects the impact of the strategic actions we have taken over the past several months. Combined with the settlements we reached in March 2019 and our additional financing, we have momentum on our path to profitability,” said Kenneth Young, Chief Executive Officer. “Our Babcock & Wilcox segment continues to perform well, and our change in strategy for the SPIG segment is beginning to drive results. As 2019 progresses, we expect the core strengths of our businesses to continue to become more visible to our customers and shareholders. We are also making progress on our cost-savings initiatives, and looking forward, we continue to target a run-rate adjusted EBITDA of approximately $100 million as we exit 2020, not including corporate overhead.”

“Over the past six months, our customers and employees have seen a major transformation at Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises and are responding positively as we have made significant changes to improve our business and have shared new information about our strategic path to profitability,” Young continued. “We are optimistic as we see new opportunities emerging as a result of our recent efforts. Going forward, we expect to see improvement each quarter as our cost-savings initiatives continue to impact bottom-line results and as we minimize EPC contract losses under the terms of the settlements we achieved in March 2019. Our dedicated employees continue to deliver world-class products and services that reflect the strengths of our more than 150-year heritage. We are laser-focused on delivering high-quality technologies that provide solutions for our customers and strong results for our shareholders.”

Results of Operations

Consolidated revenues in first quarter 2019 were $231.9 million, down 8.4% compared to first quarter 2018 primarily due to several EPC contracts being in the final stages of completion in the first quarter of 2019 The GAAP operating loss in first quarter 2019 was $32.0 million compared to an operating loss of $106.4 million in first quarter 2018. Prior to the first quarter of 2019, the most significant drivers of the Company’s operating losses were the charges for the six European engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) loss contracts. In the first quarter of 2019, the most significant drivers of our operating losses were settlement costs, restructuring activities, and advisory fees. Adjusted EBITDA was negative $5.0 million compared to negative $77.6 million in first quarter 2018.

In the first quarter of 2019, the Company changed its calculation of adjusted EBITDA to exclude net pension benefit, foreign currency exchange effects and other income (expense); all references to adjusted EBITDA in this release exclude these items on a consistent basis. Net pension benefit before mark-to-market adjustments was $3.4 million in the first quarter of 2019, compared to $7.0 million in the prior-year quarter; foreign exchange impact was negative $10.2 million in the first quarter of 2019, compared to positive $2.5 million in the prior-year quarter.

Babcock & Wilcox segment revenues increased 18.5% to $188.6 million in the first quarter of 2019 compared to $159.1 million in the prior-year period, mainly driven by large construction new build and industrial projects, partially offset by a decrease in parts sales. Gross profit in the Babcock & Wilcox segment in first quarter 2019 was $31.1 million, compared to $30.9 million in the prior-year period, reflecting the increase in lower-margin construction revenue as a percentage of total revenue including construction services at no margin for the SPIG segment on its single loss project in the U.S. Gross profit margin was 16.5%, compared to 19.4% in the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA in first quarter 2019 increased 115% to $9.0 million, compared to $4.2 million in last year’s quarter; this increase is mainly attributable to the impact of cost-savings initiatives partially offset by an approximately $2.3 million increase in the level of corporate overhead being absorbed by the segment compared to the prior-year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 4.8% compared to 2.6% in the same period last year.

SPIG segment revenues decreased 21.3% to $28.9 million in first quarter 2019 compared to $36.7 million in first quarter 2018, mainly due to lower volume of new build cooling system projects as expected following the change in strategy to improve profitability by more selectively bidding and focusing on core geographies and products, and a lower volume of aftermarket services. Gross profit improved to a positive $3.7 million in first quarter 2019, compared to a gross profit of negative $2.8 million in the prior-year period. This improvement was primarily due to the effects of the new strategy and to continued progress made on the small number of remaining legacy new build cooling systems contracts in the quarter without significant increases in estimated costs, compared to the first quarter of 2018 when higher estimated costs to complete were incurred. Adjusted EBITDA improved by $8.0 million to positive $0.7 million compared to negative $7.3 million in the same period last year, driven by the improvement in gross profit and the benefits of cost-savings initiatives.

Vølund & Other Renewable segment revenues in the segment were $29.5 million for first quarter 2019, compared to $60.0 million in first quarter 2018. First quarter revenues were lower compared to the prior year quarter as several of the European EPC loss contracts were in the final stages of completion in 2019, resulting in lower construction revenue being recognized than in 2018. The quarter-over-quarter variance was also driven by the sale of Palm Beach Resource Recovery Corporation (PBRRC) in September 2018 and the previous decision to limit bidding on Vølund renewable energy contracts. The segment gross profit improved $47.6 million to negative $2.9 million in first quarter 2019, compared to negative $50.4 million reported in first quarter 2018. In the first quarter of 2018, the segment recorded $52.6 million in net losses resulting from changes in the estimated revenues and costs to complete the six European EPC loss contracts, compared to $4.1 million of equivalent losses recorded in the first quarter of 2019. Beyond the effect of the EPC loss contracts, the first quarter 2019 gross profit also included lower levels of direct overhead support and warranty expense, offset by the absence of gross profit from PBRRC. Adjusted EBITDA in the quarter was negative $8.9 million compared to negative $61.8 million in the first quarter last year, mainly due to improved gross profit as well as lower SG&A, reflecting the benefits of restructuring and cost reductions.

European EPC Loss Projects

As of March 2019, four of the six European EPC loss contracts had been turned over to the customers, with only punch list or agreed remediation items remaining, some of which are expected to be performed during the customers’ scheduled maintenance outages. This applies to the first, third, fourth and sixth projects. On March 29, 2019, the Company reached settlements with the customers for the second and fifth European EPC projects, which significantly limited the Company’s remaining obligations related to these projects. The Company also reached an agreement to terminate its obligations on an additional European waste-to-energy EPC contract which had not yet reached the project phase. The settlements became binding on April 5, 2019 upon payment using a portion of the proceeds from Tranche A-3 of the last-out-term loans described below. A more detailed project status summary is contained in the Company’s 10-Q.

Financing, Liquidity and Balance Sheet

In the first quarter of 2019, the Company entered into several amendments to its revolving credit facility. On March 19, 2019, the Company borrowed $10.0 million of additional funding under Tranche A-2 of the last-out term loans from B. Riley Financial, Inc. (a related party, and collectively with its affiliates “B. Riley”) to support working capital needs. On April 5, 2019, the Company’s most recent amendment to its credit agreement was completed to provide $150.0 million of Tranche A-3 last-out term loans from B. Riley as well as an uncommitted incremental facility of up to $15.0 million. The proceeds from the last-out term loans were used to pay amounts due under the EPC loss project settlement agreements and debt placement fees and expenses; the remainder is available for future working capital needs.

As part of the most recent amendment, and in connection with the Tranche A-3 last-out term loans, the Company agreed to seek shareholder approval to execute a $50 million rights offering at $0.30 per share within six months; exchange all of the principal ($37.1 million as of April 2, 2019) of the last-out term loan held by Vintage Capital Management, LLC for common stock at $0.30 per share; issue approximately 16.7 million warrants, each to purchase one share of common stock at $0.01 per share to B. Riley or its designee as further consideration under Tranche A-3 of the last-out term loans; and execute a reverse stock split. The amendment permits the Company to repay up to $86 million of the last-out term loans using the proceeds from the rights offering.

The most recent amendment also, among other things, increases the Company’s borrowing capacity by reducing the Company’s required minimum liquidity to $30 million from $40 million. It allows for issuance of up to $20 million of new letters of credit with respect to any future Vølund projects, permits letters of credit to expire one year after the maturity date of the revolving credit facility, and creates a new event of default for the failure to terminate the existing credit facility on or prior to March 15, 2020. The Company intends to refinance the revolving credit facility as required.

After giving effect to the proceeds received under the last-out term loans borrowed on April 5, 2019, making the EPC loss project settlement payments, and repaying a portion of the existing revolver debt, the Company had a cash and cash equivalents balance of approximately $41 million and borrowing availability of approximately $35 million.

Continuing Cost-Savings Measures Targeting $100 Million In Annual Savings

The Company continues to target approximately $100 million in annualized savings through its cost savings initiatives. Roughly three quarters of these savings measures have been implemented to date with the balance to be implemented in 2019 and a small amount in 2020. Cost savings have been identified across all segments and at the Corporate level, and the implementation plan and savings are progressing in line with expectations. The Company continues to evaluate dispositions and additional opportunities for cost savings.

NYSE Listing Standards

On November 27, 2018, the Company received notification from the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) that the Company has fallen below its continued listing criteria based on the price of the Company’s common stock. The Company intends to ask its shareholders to approve a resolution to, among other things, effect a reverse stock split of the Company’s shares of common stock at its annual shareholders meeting. Based on the expected timing of the annual shareholder meeting, the Company is permitted under NYSE rules to go beyond the six-month cure period to request required shareholder approval on a corporate action.

(1)  Figures may not be clerically accurate due to rounding.

(2)  Adjusted EBITDA is not a calculation based on generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The amounts included in Adjusted EBITDA, however, are derived from amounts included in the Consolidated Statements of Earnings. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net earnings (loss), operating profit (loss) or operating cash flows. B&W has presented adjusted EBITDA as it is regularly used by many of our investors and is presented as a convenience to them. Adjusted EBITDA, as presented in this calculation however, differs from the EBITDA calculation used to compute our leverage ratio and interest coverage ratio as defined by our Amended Credit Agreement.

(3)  The Babcock & Wilcox segment adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2018 excludes $7.0 million of net benefit from pension and other postretirement benefit plans, excluding MTM adjustments, that were previously included in the segment results. Beginning in 2019, Net pension benefits are no longer allocated to the segments, and prior periods have been adjusted to be presented on a comparable basis.

(4)  Allocations are excluded from discontinued operations. Accordingly, allocations previously absorbed by the MEGTEC and Universal businesses in the SPIG segment have been included with other unallocated costs in Corporate, and total $2.9 million in the three months ended March 31, 2018.

(5) In March 2019, we entered into a settlement in connection with an additional European waste-to-energy EPC contract, for which notice to proceed was not given and the contract was not started.  The settlement eliminates our obligations and our risk related to acting as the prime EPC should the project move forward.
