SECOND QUARTER 2022 HIGHLIGHTS
(As compared to the Second Quarter 2021)

  • On July 25, 2022, Announced Agreement to be Acquired by MasTec, Inc. (NYSE: MTZ)
  • Total Revenues of $680.6 million, +21.5% y/y
  • Renewables Backlog of $2.4 billion, +29.2% y/y
  • Total Backlog of $3.5 billion, +27.1% y/y
  • Net Income of $17.0 million, versus $4.7 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $40.5 million, +13.6%

Revenue increased by 21.5% on a year-over-year basis in the second quarter 2022, supported by double-digit growth across both the Renewables and Specialty Civil segments. Renewables segment revenue increased 18.3% on a year-over-year basis in the second quarter, including second quarter solar revenue growth of 126.8% and a decline in wind revenue of 18.5%. Specialty Civil segment revenue increased 31.5% on a year-over-year basis in the second quarter, driven by continued strength in environmental revenue and heavy civil, partially offset by a decline in rail revenue.

For the three months ended June 30, 2022, the Company reported net income of $17.0 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, versus net income of $4.7 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the second quarter 2021. Second quarter results include a $4.6 million pre-tax benefit related to a fair value adjustment of an outstanding warrant liability.

Second quarter Adjusted EBITDA benefited from increased revenue growth in both the Renewables and Specialty Civil segments; however, inflationary pressures and supply chain issues continued to increase project costs. For a reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA, please see the appendix to this release.

As of June 30, 2022, total backlog increased to $3.5 billion, versus $2.9 billion at the end of the fourth quarter 2021. Next twelve-month backlog was $2.2 billion, an increase from $2.1 billion at the end of fourth quarter 2021, and up 24.0% from the prior-year period.

SEGMENT PERFORMANCE

Revenue and Gross Profit by segment was as follows:

 

For the quarters ended June 30,
(in thousands) 2022 2021
Segment Revenue % of Total Revenue Revenue % of Total Revenue
Renewables $ 502,703 73.9 % $ 424,854 75.8 %
Specialty Civil 177,894 26.1 % 135,294 24.2 %
Total revenue $ 680,597 100.0 % $ 560,148 100.0 %

 

For the quarters ended June 30,
(in thousands) 2022 2021
Segment Gross Profit Gross Profit Margin Gross Profit Gross Profit Margin
Renewables $ 44,797 8.9 % $ 42,883 10.1 %
Specialty Civil 16,767 9.4 % 10,600 7.8 %
Total gross profit $ 61,564 9.0 % $ 53,483 9.5 %

Renewables Segment revenue totaled $502.7 million during the second quarter 2022, an increase of 18.3% compared to the prior year. The strength in the Company’s solar business continued, with revenues more than doubling from the prior year period, while wind revenues declined during the second quarter. Renewables Segment gross profit was $44.8 million, or 8.9% of revenue, for the second quarter of 2022, compared to $42.9 million, or 10.1% of revenue, for the same period in 2021. The decrease in gross profit margin percentage for the Renewables Segment was primarily due to the inflationary impact of labor, supply chain, fuel, and certain commodities which increased estimated future costs and decreased project margins. To a lesser extent, the decrease was driven by increased man hours, resulting in higher warranty and insurance costs.

Specialty Civil Segment revenue totaled $177.9 million, an increase of 31.5% year-over-year, due to growth in environmental and heavy civil. While rail revenues remained under pressure during the second quarter, bidding activity has started to improve. Specialty Civil Segment gross profit was $16.8 million, or 9.4% of revenue, for the second quarter of 2022, as compared to $10.6 million, or 7.8% of revenue, for the same period in 2021. The increase in gross profit percentage was primarily due to improved overhead cost absorption given the strong revenue growth and a more favorable project mix.

FINANCIAL RESOURCES AND LIQUIDITY

As of June 30, 2022, the Company had $46.5 million of cash and cash equivalents and total debt of $401.4 million, consisting of the $300.0 million senior unsecured notes, $30.0 million of borrowings under the Company’s credit facility, $2.3 million of commercial equipment notes, and $69.1 million of obligations, exclusive of associated interest, recognized under various finance leases for equipment. At the end of the quarter, the Company had $95.8 million of availability under its credit facility, net of borrowings and letters of credit. Combined with cash, total liquidity was $142.3 million.

BACKLOG

IEA defines “backlog” as the amount of revenue the Company expects to realize from the uncompleted portions of existing construction contracts, including new contracts under which work has not begun and awarded contracts for which the definitive project documentation is being prepared. Backlog is not a term recognized under GAAP, although it is a common measurement used in the Company’s industry. IEA’s methodology for determining backlog may not be comparable to the methodologies used by others. See Item 1A. Risk Factors in the Company’s Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2021 and Part II, Item 1A. Risk Factors in the Company’s most recent Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for a discussion of the risks associated with IEA’s backlog.

The following table summarizes the Company’s backlog by segment for the periods below:

 

(in millions)
Segments June 30, 2022 December 31, 2021 June 30, 2021
Renewables $ 2,404.4 $ 2,034.8 $ 1,861.1
Specialty Civil 1,105.8 881.3 900.7
Total $ 3,510.2 $ 2,916.1 $ 2,761.8

Total backlog at June 30, 2022 was $3.5 billion, an increase of $748.8 million, or 27.1% compared to the year-ago period. Renewables Segment backlog at June 30, 2022 was $2.4 billion, an increase of 29.2% compared to the prior year, as a result of strong growth in the solar market combined with steady performance in wind.

Specialty Civil backlog at June 30, 2022 was $1.1 billion, up 22.8% compared to last year due in large part to favorable market trends in environmental.

The Company expects to realize approximately $2.2 billion of its estimated backlog during the next twelve months, an increase of $434.1 million from the year-ago period.

MASTEC TRANSACTION DETAILS

On July 24, 2022, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with MasTec, Inc. (“MasTec”), a leading infrastructure construction company, under which MasTec will acquire all of the outstanding shares of the Company in a cash-and-stock transaction (the “Merger”). The Merger Agreement provides that each share of the Company’s common stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger will be cancelled and converted in the Merger into the right to receive (i) 0.0483 of a share of MasTec common stock and (ii) $10.50 in cash.

GLJ

Completion of the Merger is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain closing conditions. The Company cannot predict with certainty whether and when any of the required closing conditions will be satisfied or if the Merger will close.

Given the Company’s pending acquisition by MasTec, IEA is not hosting a conference call to discuss its second quarter financial results, and the Company is no longer providing financial guidance.

Non-U.S. GAAP Financial Measures

We define EBITDA as net income (loss), determined in accordance with GAAP, for the period presented, before depreciation and amortization, interest expense and provision (benefit) for income taxes. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA plus restructuring expenses, acquisition or disposition related expenses, non-cash stock compensation expense, and certain other non-cash charges, unusual, non-operating or non-recurring items and other items that we believe are not representative of our core business or future operating performance.

Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure and, when considered along with other performance measures, is a useful measure as it reflects certain drivers of the business, such as revenue growth and operating costs. We believe Adjusted EBITDA can be useful in providing an understanding of the underlying operating results and trends and an enhanced overall understanding of our financial performance and prospects for the future. While Adjusted EBITDA is not a recognized measure under GAAP, management uses this financial measure to evaluate and forecast business performance. Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of liquidity or cash flows from operations or a measure comparable to net income as it does not consider certain requirements, such as capital expenditures and depreciation, principal and interest payments, and tax payments. Adjusted EBITDA is not a presentation made in accordance with GAAP, and our use of the term Adjusted EBITDA may vary from the use of similarly-titled measures by others in our industry due to the potential inconsistencies in the method of calculation and differences due to items subject to interpretation.

The presentation of non-GAAP financial information should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

The following table outlines the reconciliation from net loss to Adjusted EBITDA for the periods indicated:
