CECO Environmental Corp. Press Release:
CINCINNATI, Ohio, May 10, 2016 — CECO Environmental Corp. (Nasdaq:CECE), a leading global environmental, energy and fluid handling technology company, today reported its financial results for the first quarter of 2016.
“Despite some ongoing macroeconomic challenges continuing into 2016, we recorded bookings of $120 million in the quarter, resulting in backlog of $228 million, both of which are all-time records for CECO. We also delivered margin expansion, strong free cash flow and significant debt pay down. I am very pleased we have now fully completed the integration of our Peerless acquisition in less than nine months since the closing of the transaction. We have not only fully achieved the promised operational and overall business synergies of $15 million more than one year ahead of schedule, but we now expect to achieve $18 million in total synergies. As a result, Peerless’ adjusted EBITDA was $5 million for the first quarter of 2016 versus an operating loss in their same quarter last year,” said CEO Jeff Lang. “In addition, our continued focus on organic sales, recurring revenue growth, and working capital initiatives enabled debt repayment and a reduction in our leverage ratios. Lastly, we are very pleased that our sequential bookings grew from $100 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 to $120 million in the first quarter of 2016,” said Jeff Lang.
“While we anticipate some macroeconomic shifting in a few markets and regions for the remainder of the year, we are confident that the actions we took in 2015 and our diversity of end markets, geographies and revenue streams provide us with a foundation to drive profitable growth through various cycles. The direction and core of our business is fundamentally strong, and we have the right team in place to deliver earnings growth, margin expansion and sales improvement into the future,” concluded Jeff Lang.
Revenue in the first quarter of 2016 was $103.2 million, up 27% from $81.0 million in the prior-year period. Recent acquisitions(1) contributed $24.9 million of revenue in the first quarter of 2016.
Operating income was $5.8 million for the first quarter of 2016 (5.6% margin), compared with $3.0 million in the prior-year period (3.7% margin). Operating income on a non-GAAP basis was $10.9 million for the first quarter of 2016 (10.6% margin), compared with $7.5 million in the prior-year period (9.3% margin).
Net income was $3.1 million for the first quarter of 2016, compared with $0.2 million in the prior year period. Net income on a non-GAAP basis was $6.1 million for the first quarter of 2016, compared with $5.7 million in the prior-year period.

Cash and cash equivalents were $33.4 million and bank debt was $170.6 million, as of March 31, 2016, compared with $34.2 million and $177.3 million, respectively, as of December 31, 2015.

Total backlog at March 31, 2016 was $228.1 million as compared with $211.2 million on December 31, 2015, and $153.0 million on March 31, 2015.
Bookings were $120.1 million for the first quarter of 2016, compared with $93.9 million in the prior year, an increase of 28%. Bookings were $100.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2015.

NOTE REGARDING NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
CECO is providing the non-GAAP historical financial measures presented above as the Company believes that these figures are helpful in allowing individuals to better assess the ongoing nature of CECO’s core operations. A “non-GAAP financial measure” is a numerical measure of a company’s historical financial performance that excludes amounts that are included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in the GAAP statement of operations.
Non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP gross profit margin, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP earnings per basic and diluted share and adjusted EBITDA, as we present them in the financial data included in this press release, have been adjusted to exclude the effects of expenses related to property, plant equipment valuation adjustments, acquisition and integration expense activities including retention, legal, accounting, banking, amortization and contingent earnout expenses, foreign currency re-measurement, intangible asset impairment, legal reserves and the associated tax benefit of these charges. Management believes that these items are not necessarily indicative of the Company’s ongoing operations and their exclusion provides individuals with additional information to compare the Company’s results over multiple periods. Management utilizes this information to evaluate its ongoing financial performance. Our financial statements may continue to be affected by items similar to those excluded in the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from our non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an inference that all such costs are unusual or infrequent.
Non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP gross profit margin, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP earnings per basic and diluted shares and adjusted EBITDA are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, and should be considered supplemental to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operations of our business as determined in accordance with GAAP. As a result, you should not consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of CECO’s results as reported under GAAP.
In accordance with the requirements of Regulation G issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP gross profit margin, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP earnings per basic and diluted share and adjusted EBITDA, stated in the tables above present the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure and reconcile to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
Any statements contained in this press release other than statements of historical fact, including statements about management’s beliefs and expectations, are forward-looking statements and should be evaluated as such. These statements are made on the basis of management’s views and assumptions regarding future events and business performance. Words such as “estimate,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “target,” “project,” “should,” “may,” “will” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements (including oral representations) involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: our ability to successfully integrate acquired businesses and realize the synergies from acquisitions, including PMFG, as well as a number of factors related to our business including economic and financial market conditions generally and economic conditions in CECO’s service areas; dependence on fixed price contracts and the risks associated therewith, including actual costs exceeding estimates and method of accounting for contract revenue; fluctuations in operating results from period to period due to seasonality of the business; the effect of growth on CECO’s infrastructure, resources, and existing sales; the ability to expand operations in both new and existing markets; the potential for contract delay or cancellation; changes in or developments with respect to any litigation or investigation; the potential for fluctuations in prices for manufactured components and raw materials; the substantial amount of debt incurred in connection with our recent acquisitions and our ability to repay or refinance it or incur additional debt in the future; the impact of federal, state or local government regulations; economic and political conditions generally; and the effect of competition in the environmental, energy and fluid handling and filtration industries. These and other risks and uncertainties are discussed in more detail in CECO’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our reports on Form 10-K and Form 10-Q. Many of these risks are beyond management’s ability to control or predict. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should the assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary in material aspects from those currently anticipated. Investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements as they speak only to our views as of the date the statement is made. All forward-looking statements attributable to CECO or persons acting on behalf of CECO are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements and risk factors contained in this press release and CECO’s respective filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
