SUGAR LAND, Texas, May 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Team, Inc. (NYSE: TISI), a global leading provider of integrated, digitally-enabled asset performance assurance and optimization solutions, today reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

First Quarter 2021 Results:

  • Revenue of $194.6 million, down $42.2 million, or 17.8%, from Q1 2020
  • Gross margin was $43.7 million, or 22.5%, slightly below the 24.3% from Q1 2020
  • Reduced quarterly SG&A by $12.3 million or 15.7% as compared to Q1 2020
  • Strong decremental despite a 17.8% drop in revenue, as a result of disciplined cost management

"TEAM's first quarter results were adversely impacted by numerous headwinds," said Amerino Gatti, TEAM's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "As expected, we experienced a slow start to the year. January is historically a weak month as our clients' focus is on scheduling maintenance and capital projects. February's typical uptick in activity was delayed by the unprecedented winter storms that caused large scale power outages across the U.S. Midwest and Gulf Coast. These storms resulted in a large number of refining and petrochemical plants shutting down temporarily, which reduced our nested activity and postponed projects. We estimate the storms negatively affected our first quarter revenue by approximately $10 million. Our international markets were also affected, as COVID‑related lockdowns limited travel and necessitated quarantine restrictions.

"Although we are not pleased with our first quarter results, we were able to minimize the Adjusted EBITDA decremental to 3% compared to Q1 2020, despite a $42.2 million year‑over‑year revenue decline. The favorable fall through we generated was supported by our 2020 disciplined cost reduction actions. During the quarter, we began to roll back some of our variable cost initiatives that started in late March 2020.  We also increased our investments in sales, account management, and technician training and certifications in order to position us to competitively gain market share as our end markets expand and the labor market tightens. 

"In March, our activity levels improved significantly with clients returning to more normalized operations as well as the startup of several large turnaround projects. Specifically, our Inspection and Heat Treating and Mechanical Services segments realized approximately a 40% increase in billable hours over February levels. Quest segment's revenues increased approximately 40% in March over its January and February average.  These March activity levels have continued into April and early May. 

"The U.S. economy is rebounding, and as COVID-related restrictions are lifted, people are driving more and returning to the workplace, increasing global demand and consumption.  The growth in economic activity has provided greater confidence in our 2021 outlook. 

"Looking ahead, we continue investing to build upon our competitive advantages.  Our balanced operating models which include nested, project and turnarounds, and call-out work provide TEAM the agility to successfully compete in the dynamic environment.  Our critical asset solutions and advanced technology applications position TEAM to deliver accretive services and be an integrated service partner.  Lastly, our new group structure is designed to accelerate global revenue growth and promote our integrated and innovative solutions. The strong economic outlook – combined with our competitive advantages – have positioned TEAM for growth in 2021 and beyond," concluded Mr. Gatti.

Financial Results

Consolidated net loss in the first quarter of 2021 was $34.3 million ($1.11 loss per diluted share) compared to a loss of $199.7 million ($6.54 loss per diluted share) in the first quarter of 2020. Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, was negative $5.3 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to negative $3.9 million for the prior year quarter.

Consolidated revenue for the first quarter of 2021 was $194.6 million compared to $236.8 million in the prior year quarter. Revenue decreased due to lower activity levels as a result of the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the winter storms in the Midwest and Gulf Coast. In the first quarter of 2021, consolidated gross margin was $43.7 million, or 22.5%, compared with 24.3% in the same quarter a year ago.

SG&A for the first quarter was $66.1 million, down $12.3 million, or a 15.7% improvement from the first quarter of 2020. The company's adjusted measure of net income/loss, Consolidated Adjusted EBIT, was a loss of $18.6 million in the first quarter compared to a loss of $17.2 million in the prior year comparable quarter. 

First quarter 2021 reported results include certain net charges not indicative of TEAM's core operating activities, including: $0.8 million of professional costs related to the previously announced new strategic organizational structure ("Operating Group Reorganization"), $2.0 million of severance charges primarily associated with the Operating Group Reorganization, $2.5 million for an accrued legal matter and other legal fees, and $0.4 million of certain other non-recurring professional and administrative fees.  Net of tax, these items totaled $4.5 million or $0.14 per diluted share.

Adjusted net loss, consolidated Adjusted EBIT, and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain items that are not indicative of TEAM's core operating activities. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures is at the end of this release.

1              NM - Not meaningful

The decrease in year-over-year activity levels across the company was due to the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and winter storms in the Midwest and Gulf Coast, resulting in the postponement of client projects and lower activity levels. 

Quest Integrity was particularly affected by the pandemic as stay-at-home orders limited travel and necessitated quarantine restrictions. The travel restrictions resulted in many of Quest's first quarter projects getting delayed until the second quarter of 2021 or later in the year. 

Cash and Debt

Consolidated cash and cash equivalents were $22.3 million at March 31, 2021. The company's net debt (total debt less cash and cash equivalents) was $310.7 million at March 31, 2021, compared to $287.9 million at Dec. 31, 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The non-GAAP measures in this earnings release are provided to enable investors, analysts and management to evaluate TEAM's performance excluding the effects of certain items that management believes impact the comparability of operating results between reporting periods. These measures should be used in addition to, and not in lieu of, results prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). A reconciliation of each of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable historical GAAP financial measure is contained in the accompanying schedule for each of the fiscal periods indicated.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

(Unaudited)

The Company uses supplemental non-GAAP financial measures which are derived from the consolidated financial information including adjusted net income (loss); adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share, earnings before interest and taxes ("EBIT"); adjusted EBIT (defined below); adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("adjusted EBITDA") and free cash flow to supplement financial information presented on a GAAP basis.

The Company defines adjusted net income (loss), adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share and adjusted EBIT to exclude the following items: costs associated with our OneTEAM program, costs associated with the Operating Group Reorganization, non-routine legal costs and settlements, restructuring charges, certain severance charges, goodwill impairment charges, loss on debt extinguishment and certain other items that we believe are not indicative of core operating activities. Consolidated adjusted EBIT, as defined by us, excludes the costs excluded from adjusted net income (loss) as well as income tax expense (benefit), interest charges, foreign currency (gain) loss, and items of other (income) expense. Consolidated adjusted EBITDA further excludes from consolidated adjusted EBIT depreciation, amortization and non-cash share-based compensation costs. Segment adjusted EBIT is equal to segment operating income (loss) excluding costs associated with our OneTEAM program, costs associated with the Operating Group Reorganization, non-routine legal costs and settlements, restructuring charges, certain severance charges, goodwill impairment charges and certain other items as determined by management. Segment adjusted EBITDA further excludes from segment adjusted EBIT depreciation, amortization, and non-cash share-based compensation costs. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities minus capital expenditures. Net debt is defined as the sum of the current and long-term portions of debt, including finance lease obligations, less cash and cash equivalents.

Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to both management and investors in their analysis of our financial position and results of operations. In particular, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share, consolidated adjusted EBIT, and consolidated adjusted EBITDA are meaningful measures of performance which are commonly used by industry analysts, investors, lenders and rating agencies to analyze operating performance in our industry, perform analytical comparisons, benchmark performance between periods, and measure our performance against externally communicated targets. Our segment adjusted EBIT and segment adjusted EBITDA is also used as a basis for the Chief Operating Decision Maker to evaluate the performance of our reportable segments. Free cash flow is used by our management and investors to analyze our ability to service and repay debt and return value directly to stakeholders.

Non-GAAP measures have important limitations as analytical tools, because they exclude some, but not all, items that affect net earnings and operating income. These measures should not be considered substitutes for their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures and should be read only in conjunction with financial information presented on a GAAP basis. Further, our non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies who may calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently, limiting the usefulness of those measures for comparative purposes. The liquidity measure of free cash flow does not represent a precise calculation of residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures. Reconciliations of each non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure are presented below.
