HOUSTON, April 27, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Orion Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ORN) (the "Company"), a leading specialty construction company, today reported a net loss of $4.9 million ($0.16 diluted loss per share) for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022. Excluding non-recurring items, adjusted net loss was $3.2 million ($0.10 diluted loss per share).

First Quarter 2022 Highlights

  • Operating loss was $2.9 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to operating income of $2.1 million for the first quarter of 2021.

  • Net loss was $4.9 million ($0.16 diluted loss per share) for the first quarter of 2022 compared to net income of $0.9 million ($0.03 diluted earnings per share) for the first quarter of 2021.

  • The first quarter 2022 net loss included $2.1 million ($0.07 loss per diluted share) of non-recurring items and $0.5 million ($0.02 per diluted share) of tax impact from valuation allowances. First quarter 2022 adjusted net loss was $3.2 million ($0.10 diluted loss per share). (Please see page 7 of this release for a reconciliation of adjusted net income).

  • EBITDA, adjusted to exclude the impact of the aforementioned non-recurring items, was $5.2 million in the first quarter of 2022, which compares to adjusted EBITDA of $9.5 million for the first quarter of 2021. (Please see page 8 of this release for an explanation of EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation to the nearest GAAP measure).

  • Backlog at the end of the first quarter was $604.1 million on a first quarter book-to-bill of 1.08x.

"Since stepping in as Orion Group Holdings’ interim CEO a few weeks ago, I have been working closely with leaders to ensure that we are well positioned to capitalize on industry tailwinds, improve the quality of our backlog, enhance margins and ultimately deliver for our shareholders and customers," stated Austin Shanfelter, Orion’s Interim Chief Executive Officer. "We ended the first quarter with a solid foundation for the future, including improving markets and a backlog up 66 percent year-over-year. Since the end of the quarter, we have successfully bid for an additional $112 million in projects."

Mr. Shanfelter continued, "I am committed to working with our teams to meet or exceed our goals and I would like to thank our team members, our business partners and our clients for their leadership and support."

Consolidated Results for First Quarter 2022 Compared to First Quarter 2021

  • Contract revenues were $174.9 million, an increase of $21.6 million or 14.1% as compared to $153.3 million. The increase was primarily driven by the beginning of large jobs awarded in the second half of 2021 in the marine segment and increased cubic yard production on light commercial projects in the concrete segment.

  • Gross profit was $12.8 million, as compared to $15.5 million. Gross profit margin was 7.3%, as compared to 10.1%. The decrease in gross profit dollars and percentage was primarily driven by write-downs in the concrete segment as a result of project conditions, reduced dredging volume in the current quarter and a change in the mix of work in the current period.

  • Selling, General, and Administrative expenses were $16.2 million, as compared to $14.6 million. As a percentage of total contract revenues, SG&A expenses decreased from 9.5% to 9.2%, primarily due to higher revenues in the current period. The increase in SG&A dollars was driven primarily by additional consulting fees related to the management transition and additional property taxes, partially offset by reduced bonus expense.

  • Operating loss was $2.9 million as compared to operating income of $2.1 million in the prior year period.

  • EBITDA was $3.5 million, representing a 2.0% EBITDA margin, as compared to EBITDA of $8.6 million, or a 5.6% EBITDA margin. When adjusted for non-recurring items, adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2022 was $5.2 million, representing a 3.0% EBITDA margin. (Please see page 8 of this release for an explanation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation to the nearest GAAP measure).

Backlog

Backlog of work under contract as of March 31, 2022 was $604.1 million, which compares with backlog under contract as of March 31, 2021, of $364.8 million. The first quarter 2022 ending backlog was composed of $317.4 million in the marine segment, and $286.7 million in the concrete segment. At the end of the first quarter 2022, the Company had approximately $2.1 billion worth of bids outstanding, including successful bids on approximately $112 million in projects subsequent to the end of the first quarter of 2022, of which approximately $30 million pertains to the marine segment and approximately $82 million to the concrete segment.

"During the first quarter, we converted approximately $189 million of the approximately $1.3 billion of work on which we bid," continued Mr. Shanfelter. "This resulted in a 1.08 times book-to-bill ratio and a win rate of 14.0%. In the marine segment, we bid on approximately $419 million during the first quarter 2022 and were successful on approximately $25 million, representing a win rate of 6.0% and a book-to-bill ratio of 0.30 times. In the concrete segment we bid on approximately $927 million of work and were awarded approximately $164 million, representing a win rate of 17.7% and a book-to-bill ratio of 1.81 times."

Backlog consists of projects under contract that have either (a) not been started, or (b) are in progress but are not yet complete. The Company cannot guarantee that the revenue implied by its backlog will be realized, or, if realized, will result in earnings. Backlog can fluctuate from period to period due to the timing and execution of contracts. Given the typical duration of the Company's projects, which generally range from three to nine months, the Company's backlog at any point in time usually represents only a portion of the revenue it expects to realize during a twelve-month period.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the financial measures "adjusted net income," "adjusted earnings per share," "EBITDA," "Adjusted EBITDA" and "Adjusted EBITDA margin." These measurements are "non-GAAP financial measures" under rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, including Regulation G. The non-GAAP financial information may be determined or calculated differently by other companies. By reporting such non-GAAP financial information, the Company does not intend to give such information greater prominence than comparable GAAP financial information. Investors are urged to consider these non-GAAP measures in addition to and not in substitute for measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share are not an alternative to net income or earnings per share. Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share exclude certain items that management believes impairs a meaningful comparison of operating results. The company believes these adjusted financial measures are a useful adjunct to earnings calculated in accordance with GAAP because management uses adjusted net income available to common stockholders to evaluate the company's operational trends and performance relative to other companies. Generally, items excluded, are one-time items or items whose timing or amount cannot be reasonably estimated. Accordingly, any guidance provided by the company generally excludes information regarding these types of items.

Orion Group Holdings defines EBITDA as net income before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by adjusting EBITDA for certain items that management believes impairs a meaningful comparison of operating results. Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA for the period by contract revenues for the period. The GAAP financial measure that is most directly comparable to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is net income, while the GAAP financial measure that is most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA margin is operating margin, which represents operating income divided by contract revenues. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are used internally to evaluate current operating expense, operating efficiency, and operating profitability on a variable cost basis, by excluding the depreciation and amortization expenses, primarily related to capital expenditures and acquisitions, and net interest and tax expenses. Additionally, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin provide useful information regarding the Company's ability to meet future debt service and working capital requirements while providing an overall evaluation of the Company's financial condition. In addition, EBITDA is used internally for incentive compensation purposes. The Company includes EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin to provide transparency to investors as they are commonly used by investors and others in assessing performance. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin have certain limitations as analytical tools and should not be used as a substitute for operating margin, net income, cash flows, or other data prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or as a measure of the Company's profitability or liquidity.

The matters discussed in this press release may constitute or include projections or other forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, the provisions of which the Company is availing itself. Certain forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology, such as 'believes', 'expects', 'may', 'will', 'could', 'should', 'seeks', 'approximately', 'intends', 'plans', 'estimates', or 'anticipates', or the negative thereof or other comparable terminology, or by discussions of strategy, plans, objectives, intentions, estimates, forecasts, outlook, assumptions, or goals. In particular, statements regarding future operations or results, including those set forth in this press release, and any other statement, express or implied, concerning future operating results or the future generation of or ability to generate revenues, income, net income, gross profit, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, or cash flow, including to service debt, and including any estimates, forecasts or assumptions regarding future revenues or revenue growth, are forward-looking statements. Forward looking statements also include estimated project start date, anticipated revenues, and contract options which may or may not be awarded in the future. Forward looking statements involve risks, including those associated with the Company's fixed price contracts that impacts profits, unforeseen productivity delays that may alter the final profitability of the contract, cancellation of the contract by the customer for unforeseen reasons, delays or decreases in funding by the customer, levels and predictability of government funding or other governmental budgetary constraints, the effects of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and any potential contract options which may or may not be awarded in the future, and are at the sole discretion of award by the customer. Past performance is not necessarily an indicator of future results. In light of these and other uncertainties, the inclusion of forward-looking statements in this press release should not be regarded as a representation by the Company that the Company's plans, estimates, forecasts, goals, intentions, or objectives will be achieved or realized. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof. The Company assumes no obligation to update information contained in this press release whether as a result of new developments or otherwise.

Please refer to the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed on March 7, 2022, which is available on its website at www.oriongroupholdingsinc.com or at the SEC's website at www.sec.gov, for additional and more detailed discussion of risk factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from our current expectations, estimates or forecasts.
