IES Holdings Reports Fiscal 2017 Second Quarter Results

HOUSTON, May 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IES Holdings, Inc. (or "IES" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:IESC) today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017

Second Quarter 2017 Highlights

Management Commentary
Robert Lewey, President, stated, "We experienced strong revenue growth of 27% and earnings improved in three of our four segments in the second quarter of fiscal 2017 compared with the second quarter of fiscal 2016.  These gains were offset by certain project inefficiencies in our Commercial & Industrial segment during the quarter.  However, we believe that we are taking appropriate actions to manage this risk and the overall outlook for our Commercial & Industrial business remains positive. Additionally, our newly acquired businesses continue to perform well and are contributing to our consolidated performance.  We expect to continue evaluating opportunities to strengthen the mix of our business and improve consolidated operating margins through acquisitions."

Tracy McLauchlin, Chief Financial Officer, added, "Our balance sheet remains strong, as highlighted by our amended and expanded credit facility, which increased our maximum revolver amount from $70 million to $100 million.  Additionally, we were pleased to close the acquisition of Freeman Enclosure Systems, LLC on March 16, 2017, which significantly strengthened our Infrastructure Solutions segment's offering of electro-mechanical products and services. Lastly, we believe that the strength and increasing diversity of our $335 million in backlog has us well-positioned to continue to expand our margins."

Net Operating Loss Carryforwards
The Company estimates that it has available NOLs for U.S. federal income tax purposes of approximately $404 million at September 30, 2016, including approximately $142 million resulting from the additional amortization of personal goodwill.  The Company's common stock is subject to a Rights Plan dated November 8, 2016, which is intended to assist in limiting the number of 5% or more owners of the Company's common stock and, thereby reduce the risk of a possible "change of ownership" under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. Any such "change of ownership" under these rules would limit or eliminate the ability of the Company to use its existing NOLs for federal income tax purposes.  There is no guarantee that the Rights Plan will achieve the objective of preserving the value or realization of the NOLs.

Stock Buyback Plan
The Company's Board of Directors has authorized and previously announced a stock repurchase program for purchasing up to 1.5 million shares of our common stock from time to time.  The Company did not repurchase any of its common stock during the three months ended March 31, 2017.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Adjustments
This press release includes adjusted net income attributable to IES and, in the non-GAAP reconciliation table included herein, adjusted net income before taxes, both of which are financial measures not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. ("GAAP").  Management believes that these measures provide useful information to our investors by distinguishing certain noncash events such as our valuation allowances release and certain acquisition and disposition related items, and that these measures, when reconciled to net income attributable to IES, which is the most directly comparable GAAP measure, help our investors to better identify underlying trends in the operations of our business and facilitate easier comparisons of our financial performance with prior and future periods and to our peers.  Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information calculated in accordance with GAAP.  Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.  A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP results has been provided in the financial tables included in this press release. 

For further details on the Company's financial results, please refer to the Company's annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2016 and quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2017, to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") by May 5, 2017, and any amendments thereto.
