EVI Industries Sets Records for Revenue, Gross Profit and Net Income

EVI Industries Sets Records for Revenue, Gross Profit and Net Income

EVI Industries, Inc. (NYSE American: EVI) reported record fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2021 operating results, establishing new fiscal fourth quarter records for gross profit and net income and fiscal year records for revenue, gross profit and net income, which includes a gain on the forgiveness of debt in connection with the forgiveness of PPP Loans.

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.

Highlights to EVI’s Financial Results

  • Gross profit increased 22% to a record $16.4 million,
  • Gross margin increased 70 basis points to 25%,
  • Net income increased to $6.8 million from a net loss of $0.1 million, and
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 49% from $1.9 million to $2.9 million, or approximately 4.5% of revenue.

Fiscal Year Results

  • Gross profit increased 8% to a record $60 million,
  • Gross margin increased 130 basis points to 25%,

  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 21% from $8.8 million to $10.6 million, and

Henry M. Nahmad, EVI’s Chairman and CEO commented: “Strong fourth quarter results reflect a steady recovery across certain of our end customer categories resulting in a significant increase in demand for the commercial laundry products and service solutions we provide. Amid the recovery and increased demand, we are actively managing through supply chain disruptions and labor shortages causing delays in product lead times, pricing volatility, cost increases, and other adverse conditions. Ultimately, we believe we are a stronger company today than at any time in the past and consequently are better positioned to execute on our long-term growth objectives.”

Balance Sheet Strength

At the completion of fiscal 2021, the Company had net debt of less than $6 million, which represents a 68% decrease in net debt as compared to the end of fiscal 2020. The significant decrease in net debt includes two consecutive fiscal years of strong cash flows and forgiveness of the PPP Loans received under the Cares Act, offset in part by the Company’s deployment of cash in connection with multiple acquisitions and costs associated with the Company’s optimization initiatives, including one-time costs related to ongoing implementation of new technologies.

Mr. Nahmad commented: “Given the health and strength of our balance sheet, including a significant amount of liquidity and other available resources, we are well-positioned to deploy cash in connection with attractive buy and build opportunities we are actively pursuing.”

Continued Completion of Acquisitions

During fiscal 2021, the Company successfully acquired two businesses, Yankee Equipment Systems and Eastern Laundry Systems, both of which are New England based commercial laundry distributors and service providers. In adding these businesses, the Company strengthened its existing Northeast operations, and the Company gained an influential, young, dynamic, and entrepreneurial leader with an exceptional team. Additionally, the acquisitions the Company made just before the onset of COVID-19 in the third quarter of fiscal 2020 have exceeded management’s expectations in terms of market share growth and operating performance.

Record Revenues

Despite the continued adverse impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and extended key supplier lead times, the Company capitalized on a significant increase in customer demand for the commercial laundry product and service solutions it provides. Consequently, revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 increased to $65 million, a 19% increase compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, and revenue for fiscal 2021 increased 3% compared to fiscal 2020 to a record $242 million.

Record Gross Profit and Increased Gross Margins

The Company improved gross margin despite numerous cost increases and pricing volatility. Gross margin for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 increased to approximately twenty-five percent (25%), an increase of seventy (70) basis points compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. Gross margin for fiscal year 2021 increased to twenty-five percent (25%), an increase of one hundred thirty (130) basis points compared to fiscal 2020. It should also be noted that the improvements to gross margins are notwithstanding the impact of longer-term contracts with certain customers in connection with complex laundries which lowered gross margins above by 120-basis points during fiscal 2021 and 80-basis points during fiscal 2020.

Mr. Nahmad commented: “Managing through this period was and continues to be a difficult challenge, but also one that provides an opportunity to improve pricing, gross margin, and contribution margins. Our focus was to leverage the positive pricing environment to protect and strengthen our gross margins and to do so while further enhancing our customer value proposition. To that end, we evaluated historical transaction data and other metrics and based on our findings, we implemented a performance management system, updated sales incentives, and increasingly utilized our new technologies to better track our performance.”

Pursuit of Growth and Operational Optimization

As previously communicated, the Company continued to execute on its growth strategy while pursuing an aggressive optimization initiative through an extensive modernization agenda under a thoughtful and measured approach that seeks to limit disruption and mitigate risks to the Company.

Mr. Nahmad commented: “While we are a long-term growth focused company, balancing growth with health was ever more critical amid the challenging times we faced during this fiscal year. Through these times though, the operations of certain of our businesses were consolidated, modernized, and therefore optimized and these businesses achieved a low double digit EBITDA margin during fiscal 2021. This achievement is evidence that the optimization initiatives across our consolidated Company are effective at achieving our targeted operating results and when combined with continued acquisition growth, we will achieve our long-term growth objectives.”

For additional information regarding the Company’s results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2021, see the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 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.
