EVI Sets Records for Fiscal Year 2020

MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- EVI Industries, Inc. (NYSE American: EVI) (the “Company” or “EVI”) announced today results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2020. While the COVID-19 pandemic and accompanying economic disruption adversely impacted the Company’s performance, the Company achieved record revenue, gross profit, and operating cash flows for fiscal year 2020 and reduced net debt 50% compared to the prior year. This reflects the Company’s continued execution of its long-term focused buy-and-build growth strategy and the effectiveness of certain organic growth initiatives offset by continued investment towards the modernization and optimization of the Company and the impact of COVID-19. .

Earnings Conference Call
The Company has provided a pre-recorded earnings conference call including a business update, which can be accessed in the “Investors” section of the Company’s website at www.evi-ind.com or by visiting https://ir.evi-ind.com/message-from-the-ceo.

50% Decrease to Net Debt and Record Operating Cash Flows

At June 30, 2020, the Company had $18 million of net debt. This represents an $8 million, or a 31% decrease to net debt as compared to March 31, 2020 and an $18 million, or a 50% decrease to net debt as compared to June 30, 2019. The strengthening of the Company’s balance sheet was driven by a record $23 million of operating cash flow for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020. This record accomplishment in operating cash flow represents a $32 million positive swing in operating cash flow over the prior year and is a function of attractive working capital dynamics and the successful implementation of an effective cash management program.

Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year Operating Results

During the second half of fiscal 2020, government orders resulted in the unprecedented closure of businesses and restrictions that limited the Company’s access to customers’ facilities. This triggered a deceleration of revenue that started in March, continued into April, but started to rebound in May and continued to rebound through June. The deceleration in revenue resulted in a 16% decrease in revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2020 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2019; however, revenue increased 3% for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 to a record $236 million.

Henry M. Nahmad, Chairman and CEO commented: “While we were confronted with the turbulence and chaos caused by COVID-19 during fiscal 2020, we are pleased with the manner and speed in which we have been able to adapt. Revenue from industrial laundry customers was consistent with preplanned delivery and installation schedules and encouragingly, we accepted customer deposits for future planned industrial laundries. Revenue from on-premise laundry customers varied by end-user and geography. Revenue from vended laundry customers was strong due to factors that continue to spur investment from entrepreneurs and revenue from multi-family customers was consistent with contractual obligations.”

Gross margin for the fourth quarter increased from approximately 24% in fiscal 2019 to 25% in fiscal 2020 and gross margin for the fiscal year 2020 increased 30-basis points to 23.4% resulting in record gross profit for fiscal year 2020. Meanwhile, the decline in Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal 2020, principally reflect the impact of COVID-19. It also reflects expenses associated with operating fourteen independent businesses, inefficiencies related to outdated enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, and the Company’s ongoing investments to optimize and modernize its operations. Further, the Company’s operating results reflect continued investments made in pursuit of acquisition and strategic investments, and the retention of substantially all of its employees. Given the essential nature of its business, the Company’s employees were and remain integral to the success of its customers’ operations and, in turn, the Company.

Acquisitions

Consistent with its buy-and-build strategy, during fiscal 2020, the Company completed three acquisitions. One expanded its footprint into the northeast and the other two increased its market share in the mid-Atlantic and the southeast. While the Company generally maintains a healthy pipeline of acquisition opportunities, COVID-19 has increased the number of acquisition opportunities the Company is pursuing at this time both in the commercial laundry industry and across its targeted complementary industries. To amplify its efforts, the Company allocated additional resources to these efforts, which given its reputation, entrepreneurial culture, and long-term growth plans, the Company believes will improve its ability to secure additional successful acquisitions for the Company.

Looking Forward

While the Company pursues these long-term growth opportunities, its decentralized and entrepreneurial operating philosophy has generally remain unchanged. However, during the second half of fiscal 2020, the Company commenced an initiative to consolidate its operations into five primary subsidiaries with nine operating branches and to implement an ERP capable of supporting its future growth and its needs for business intelligence. Beyond the near-term benefits of realizing certain operating efficiencies, the Company believes that this technology will improve the effectiveness of future sales and marketing initiatives, will result in more efficient service operations, will facilitate predictive parts sales, will augment the future generation of sales and service professionals with intuitive selling and servicing solutions, will create a more connected and powerful experience with its customers, will be the foundation of its future e-commerce platform, and will enhance its competitive advantages. Additionally, the Company believes this plan will be instrumental in achieving a greater level of profitability from successive acquisitions earlier in its ownership than it has historically experienced. While this is a significant undertaking, the Company has worked diligently towards accomplishing these objectives without significant operating disruption or time delays. As of today, the Company successfully implemented its new ERP and related technologies at one of its five primary subsidiaries and has accelerated its Company-wide consolidation plan and corresponding technology implementations.

Mr. Nahmad commented: “We are still very early in our long-term growth goals. Our financial position remains strong with ample liquidity, well-managed working capital, and positive cash flows. Despite disruption and uncertainty resulting from COVID-19, we continue to believe that we have the right strategies to drive organic growth and to capture substantial growth through acquisitions and strategic investments in and around our industry. Further, we are confident that the benefit of such growth will be amplified by the continued modernization and optimization of the Company and that focusing on sustainable long-term business drivers will yield superior long-term performance and results for EVI and our shareholders.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In this press release, EVI discloses the non-GAAP financial measure of Adjusted EBITDA, which EVI defines as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, and amortization of share-based compensation. Adjusted EBITDA is determined by adding interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, and amortization of share-based compensation to net income, as shown in the attached Condensed Consolidated Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, Amortization, and Amortization of Share-based Compensation. EVI considers Adjusted EBITDA to be an important indicator of its operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA is also used by companies, lenders, investors and others because it excludes certain items that can vary widely across different industries or among companies within the same industry. For example, interest expense can be dependent on a company’s capital structure, debt levels and credit ratings, and the tax positions of companies can vary because of their differing abilities to take advantage of tax benefits and because of the tax policies of the jurisdictions in which they operate. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity, including cash flow, derived in accordance with GAAP, or to any other method of analyzing EVI’s results as reported under GAAP. In addition, EVI’s definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to definitions of Adjusted EBITDA or other similarly titled measures used by other companies.
