EVI Industries Reports Record Results for Second Quarter of Fiscal 2023


Miami, Florida – February 9, 2023 – EVI Industries, Inc. (NYSE American: EVI) (“EVI” or the “Company”) announced record results in key performance measures for the three and six months ended December 31, 2022, and provided commentary on growth initiatives, technology deployments, and financial strength.


As a result of the consistent execution of its long-term focused buy-and-build growth strategy, the promotion of an entrepreneurial culture, and the benefits derived from investments in technology, EVI has established itself as a leading distributor and service provider in the highly fragmented North American commercial laundry industry. Since the commencement of its long-term growth strategy, the Company has grown from one business operating from a single location in the state of Florida to twenty-four businesses operating from 34 locations across 19 states. In addition, the Company has been building its business through organic growth initiatives with a focus on enhancing its customer value proposition by offering a wider array of products, increasing the availability and quality of highly trained sales professionals, and installation and service technicians, and improving customer support. The Company has also made significant investments in the deployment of advanced technologies aimed to drive operating efficiencies and provide management improved business intelligence to support future investments. As a result, since 2016, revenue, net income and adjusted EBITDA have grown at compounded annual growth rates (CAGR) of 39%, 23% and 34%, respectively, reflecting strong performance amid consistent investment in buying and building businesses.


Henry M. Nahmad, EVI’s Chairman and CEO commented: “EVI is a collection of ambitious people, bound by an entrepreneurial culture and core values, focused on winning. That is our formula for success. In 2015, we embarked on a long-term journey to build the undisputed leader in and around the commercial laundry industry and in doing so, produce attractive returns for our shareholders. Today’s results establish new records for revenue, gross profit, gross margin, operating income, net income, earnings per share, and adjusted EBITDA for the three and six-month periods ended December 31, 2022. We are proud of the results, but we remain focused on achieving a higher level of growth and optimization in pursuit of our long-term goal to build a multibillion-dollar enterprise.”

Results of Operations

The Company reported record revenue of approximately $83 million and $166 million for the three and six-month periods ended December 31, 2022, an increase of 36% and 33% respectively, compared to the same periods of the prior fiscal year. Revenue growth reflects exceptional performance by the Company’s over 125 sales professionals, effective completion of installation and maintenance services by the Company’s nearly 300 technicians, and diligent fulfillment of customer sales order contracts by the Company’s over 100 sales and service support personnel. These efforts were bolstered by the Company’s investment in securing inventory to support new confirmed customer sales order contracts and immediate customer needs.


This revenue performance resulted in record net income and adjusted EBITDA, including record adjusted EBITDA margin of 7.2% and 7.5% for the three and six-month periods ended December 31, 2022, respectively. These results include a 34% increase in SG&A for the six-month period ended December 31, 2022, with 70% of such increase attributable to increased selling expenses and general and administrative expenses in connection with acquired businesses. EVI believes its performance provides evidence that the Company’s return on investments made in pursuit of growth, and its modernized and optimized operations are yielding an increasingly greater level of operating leverage.



During the second fiscal quarter, the Company completed the acquisition of Wholesale Commercial Laundry Equipment SE (“WCL”), a distributor of commercial laundry products and a provider of related technical installation and maintenance services to the on-premise and vended laundry segments of the commercial laundry industry in the southeast region of the United States. The acquisition of WCL enhances the Company’s brand name product offering, expands the Company’s geographic footprint, adds talented industry professionals, and increases the Company’s customer base.


Mr. Nahmad commented: “The completion of our twenty-third acquisition in the commercial laundry distribution and service industry is a testament to the positive reputation we have established in our industry and the continued support of our long-term buy-and-build growth strategy among the independent entrepreneurs across our industry. Given our financial strength and flexibility, our team continues to collaborate with our regional and business unit leaders in the pursuit of additional buy opportunities in and around the commercial laundry industry.”


Financial Strength and Ample Liquidity

Net debt on December 31, 2022, was $32.5 million, which reflects a $9 million increase as compared to June 30, 2022. The increase in net debt is the result of the Company’s continued investment in working capital and the acquisitions completed during the six months ended December 31, 2022. The $11 million increase in inventory as compared to June 30, 2022, primarily reflects inventory acquired in connection with industrial projects, OPL equipment, and vended laundries pending installation and increased stock inventory, reflecting the continuation of supply chain constraints, in an effort to better support short-term customer needs.


Mr. Nahmad commented: “Our prudent capital allocation strategy combined with solid and continuously improving operating performance provides for a strong financial position, which we believe serves as a significant competitive advantage during these times. Given our financial position and ample access to capital, we are well-positioned for continued growth.”




EVI’s Core Principles

EVI upholds specific core values and principles for its business including:


§Invest and manage with a long-term perspective
§Uphold financial discipline to ensure financial strength and flexibility

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.
