EVI Industries Sets Multiple Records in Second Quarter Operating Results
Miami, FL – February 9, 2022 – EVI Industries, Inc. (NYSE American: EVI) announced today its results for the three and six months ended December 31, 2021. During the three-months ended December 31, 2021, the Company achieved record operating results in certain performance measures, generated $9.4 million dollars of cash from operating activities that further strengthened its already strong balance sheet, built up its backlog to over $120 million, and continued to successfully implement its advanced operating technologies and experience incrementally greater operating leverage across its modernized business units. In addition, the Company continues to execute on the buy component of its long-term growth strategy with the acquisition of its seventeenth commercial laundry distribution and service business, which was completed on February 7, 2022.

Henry M. Nahmad, EVI’s Chairman and CEO commented: “We believe that these achievements are a function of the exceptional reputation our Company has earned with owners of high-quality businesses, our disciplined financial management, our thoughtful and deliberate operational execution, and the entrepreneurial culture which we maintain and promotes a collaborative environment yielding best practices and promising opportunities. These achievements come despite supply chain challenges we and our industry are experiencing, installation delays, and an inflationary environment resulting in increased operating expenses. While we expect these challenges to continue in the near term, our loyal suppliers are working to fulfill the significant and growing opportunities our Company is creating for their products across North America.”
Seventeenth Acquisition and Deep Pipeline of Opportunities
On February 7, 2022, EVI completed its acquisition of Raleigh, North Carolina based Consolidated Laundry Equipment and its affiliates. Consolidated is a unique acquisition for EVI in that it serves customers in a geography where EVI already has four businesses operating with wide-ranging capabilities and with distinct product representations. However, the Company believes that the addition of Consolidated will strengthen its leading market share position in the southeast region of the United States with over $90 million in revenue derived from industrial, on-premise, vended, and multi-family laundry customers. Consolidated also has a significant customer base that is loyal to the knowledge, experience, and capabilities of its sales and service organization and a robust operation, which the Company believes will, when synchronized with its existing businesses in the geography, result in the largest and most dynamic commercial laundry operation in the region. Beyond the acquisition of Consolidated, the Company maintains a deep pipeline of acquisition opportunities, and continues to cultivate new opportunities and thoughtfully pursue long-term growth opportunities for the Company.
Health and Strength of the Company
The Company’s ability to complete acquisitions and to make working capital investments is a function of the continued strength of its balance sheet and the ample liquidity it provides. At December 31, 2021, EVI had net debt of $9.0 million, which represents a $3.1 million increase in net debt as compared to the end of fiscal 2021. The change in net debt is due to changes in working capital, including greater levels of inventory, which is primarily the result of delays in the delivery and installation of products at commercial laundries. Despite the change in working capital, the Company maintains a healthy and strong balance sheet, and has over $100 million of available capital through its debt facility and potential additional capital through other financial resources to deploy in connection with potential investment opportunities in connection with its long-term buy-and-build growth strategy.
Revenue and Record Backlog
Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 increased to $61 million, a 6% increase compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2021. This increase was achieved despite revenues being adversely impacted by supply chain disruptions at manufacturers of commercial laundry equipment caused by among other factors, limited component availability. Additionally, revenue was adversely impacted by transportation delays and third-party labor shortages slowing what has historically been a fluid and speedy delivery and installation process across the industry. Looking forward, although the Company expects supply chain disruptions and delays to installation schedules to continue in the near term, there continues to be strong demand for the solutions the Company provides, evidenced by the Company’s over $120 million sales order backlog.
Record Gross Margins
Like other industries, manufacturers of commercial laundry products have experienced inflationary pressures and have raised prices accordingly. In connection with the inflationary trend, the Company previously raised selling prices and took certain other measures to improve gross margins. These actions resulted in an increase in gross margins from approximately 25% for the three months ended December 31, 2020 to a record 28% for the three months ended December 31, 2021, and an increase in gross margins from approximately 24% for the six months ended December 31, 2020 to a record 28% for the six months ended December 31, 2021. The increase in sales combined with the increase in gross margins resulted in a record $17 million and a record $34 million of gross profit for the three and six-month periods ended December 31, 2021, respectively. The Company believes that its continuous gross margin improvement reflects the benefits it derives from, among other factors, its efforts to improve and expand upon the comprehensive commercial laundry solutions it sells to and installs for its customers. In connection with these capabilities, it is important to highlight that in the second quarter of fiscal 2022, nine of the fourteen business units included in EVI’s operating results had gross margins equal to or greater than 28%, with a high of 37%. The Company is encouraged by this performance and is striving to further improve gross margin performance across all of its business units.
Record Operating Performance
Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 increased 33% to a record $3.1 million, or approximately 5.0%, and Adjusted EBITDA for the six-month period ended December 31, 2021 increased 56% to a record $7.4 million, or approximately 6.0%. This performance includes the impact of increased operating expenses due in part to higher personnel costs, increased expenditures in connection with acquisition efforts, and one-time expenses related to the Company’s consolidation and modernization initiatives. This performance also includes all corporate operating expenses and, as such, the Adjusted EBITDA generated by the Company’s business units exceeds the levels set forth above.
Mr. Nahmad commented: “We believe that the operating performance of our business units is a solid indicator that our investments are yielding continuously improved operating results and that with additional acquisitions, the alleviation of our industry's supply challenges, and the fulfillment of sales and installations at a faster pace, we will achieve a significantly greater level of operating leverage.”
Mr. Nahmad commented: “As we have stated from the beginning, we are a long-term growth focused company that is thoughtful and committed, and that acts with conviction when the opportunity is right. We have stayed true to our financial principles, consistently acquired good businesses, strengthened our customer value proposition, and improved gross and operating margins. We also believe that we are just beginning to realize the benefits of our optimization initiatives. Supporting these efforts is a collection of dynamic, well-respected, and entrepreneurial leaders from across the commercial laundry industry. Our approach and results have earned us a positive reputation in and around our industry, including among owners of quality businesses, which we may add to our growing EVI family, and among talented professionals who we may seek to hire. For these reasons and the others mentioned in this press release and in our earnings call, we remain excited and optimistic about our long-term growth and profitability outlook.”

For additional information regarding the Company’s results for the quarter ended December 31, 2021, see the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2021, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on or about the date hereof.
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 statement of 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.
