IRVING, Texas, March 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Power Equipment Group Inc. (Nasdaq:GLPW) ("Global Power" or "Company") today reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012. Results include Koontz-Wagner Custom Controls Holdings, LLC ("Koontz-Wagner"), acquired on July 30, 2012, and TOG Holdings, Inc., acquired on September 5, 2012. Both acquisitions' results are included in the Products Division's financial results as of their respective acquisition dates.

Luis Manuel Ramírez, President and CEO of Global Power, said "We delivered on the quarter with our Products Division achieving record shipment levels. Once again, the capabilities of our flexible manufacturing model and our team to manage large volume were demonstrated. We believe this is vital for addressing the expected global expansion of natural gas power generation over the next several years. And, despite the challenging past year in the U.S. nuclear power market, our Services Division also delivered growth in the quarter."

Total revenue in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $152.2million, up 32.3% from total revenue of $115.0 million in the prior-year's fourth quarter reflecting increases in both the Products and Services Divisions. Income from continuing operations was $14.4 million, or $0.85 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter, compared with $7.4 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, for the prior-year's fourth quarter. Income from continuing operations in the fourth quarter of 2012 and 2011 had $5.7 million and $4.4 million, respectively, in tax benefits from adjustments to tax reserves and tax credits. Excluding these effects, income from continuing operations per diluted share would have been $0.51 and $0.17 for the fourth quarters of 2012 and 2011, respectively.

For the full year of 2012 total revenue was $462.8 million, up $6.0 million compared with 2011. Income from continuing operations in 2012 was $17.6 million, or $1.02 per diluted share, compared with $63.1 million, or $3.70 per diluted share, in 2011. Adjustments of tax reserves and tax credits were $5.7 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, and $48.6 million, or $2.84 per diluted share, in 2012 and 2011, respectively.

PRODUCTS DIVISION REVENUE SHIPMENTS IN QUARTER AT NEW RECORD LEVEL

Products Division revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased $33.8 million, or 73.0%, to a record $80.0 million compared with the prior-year period. Fourth quarter revenue growth was driven by projects remaining in backlog at the end of the trailing third quarter that had been awarded in the previous nine to 15 months. Acquisitions completed during the third quarter of 2012 contributed $8.9 million of revenue in the fourth quarter.

Gross profit grew on higher volume and improved mix to $20.0 million, up $7.5 million, or 59.6%, when compared with gross profit of $12.5 million in the prior-year period. As a percentage of sales, gross margin was 25.0%, measurably improved over margins achieved in prior quarters of 2012 with the volume increase. Gross margin in the 2011 fourth quarter was 27.1%. The prior-year's fourth quarter gross margin benefitted from favorable job execution.

Operating income for the Products Division in the 2012 fourth quarter more than doubled to $9.9 million from operating income in the prior-year period of $4.7 million. The impact of higher volume more than offset investments in the business for product development and a new enterprise resource planning ("ERP") system, as well as increased corporate costs. As a percentage of sales, operating profit expanded 220 basis points to 12.3% demonstrating the operating leverage inherent in the business.

SERVICES DIVISION REVENUE GROWTH FROM ORGANIC EXPANSION INTO NEW BUILDS/RESTARTS

Fourth quarter 2012 Services Division revenue was $72.2 million, up $3.4 million, or 5.0%, compared with the prior-year period. Approximately $32.0 million of revenue was for capital project work and $9.2 million was for new build and restart nuclear power facilities. The majority of the new nuclear facilities revenue was related to the restart of TVA Watts Bar Unit 2. Although improved over the 2011 fourth quarter as a result of additional project work, revenue continued to be dampened by utilities deferring elective maintenance as electric power demand in the U.S. has declined.

For the 2012 fourth quarter, Services Division gross profit increased $1.2 million to $11.4 million compared with the prior-year period. Gross margin for the Services Division in the fourth quarter of 2012 was 15.9% compared with 14.9% in the 2011 fourth quarter. Fourth quarter gross margin was higher than the typical 12% to 14% as the fourth quarter of 2012 had a more favorable mix with a higher percentage of project work.

Services Division operating income for the 2012 fourth quarter was $3.3 million compared with $3.6 million in the same period in 2011. Higher allocation of corporate expenses offset leverage gained from increased gross profits for this segment.

CONSOLIDATED OPERATING INCOME IMPROVED ON HIGHER VOLUME AND LEVERAGE

Selling and administrative ("S&A") expenses increased $3.8 million in the 2012 fourth quarter over the prior-year period to $18.3 million. Higher costs were the result of $1.8 million in incremental costs associated with the acquisitions, $1.6 million strategic investments in personnel and professional fees for the Company's commercial growth strategy, as well as $0.8 million in higher non-cash stock compensation expense partially offset by a net reduction of $0.4 million in salaries and benefits which was impacted by lower incentive compensation. As a percent of sales, S&A expenses declined to 12.0% in the 2012 fourth quarter compared with 12.6% in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Operating income during the fourth quarter of 2012 was $13.2 million, up $4.9 million, or 58.9%, from the prior-year's fourth quarter primarily as a result of higher sales volume and improved mix in both divisions. Operating margin was 8.7% in the current quarter compared with 7.2% in the 2011 fourth quarter.

The effective tax rate for the quarter was not significant given the impact of reserve adjustments and tax credits.

FULL YEAR 2012 REVIEW

Consolidated revenue in 2012 was $462.8 million, up 1.3% from $456.8 million in 2011. Expansion in Products Division revenue more than offset lower Services' revenue. Products revenue was up 22.7%, or $35.8 million, to $193.7 million in 2012 compared with $157.9 million in 2011. Included in Products' 2012 revenue was $13.9 million associated with the acquisitions. Revenue in the Services Division was down by 10.0%, or $29.8 million to $269.2 million in 2012.

Gross profit was $83.1 million, or 17.9% of sales, in 2012 compared with $77.1 million, or 17.0% of sales, in the prior year, representing an improvement of $5.9 million, or 7.7%, and a 90 basis point improvement in margin. Products Division gross profit was $43.0 million, a $6.5 million, or 17.8%, improvement from 2011 gross profit. Gross margin was 22.2% for the Products Division in 2012 compared with 23.1% in 2011. Approximately $0.9 million in warranty costs impacted Products' 2012 gross margin when compared with 2011. Gross profit in the Services Division was down by 1.4%, or $0.6 million, to $40.0 million, or 14.9% of sales. Margin expanded 120 basis points for the Services Division compared with the prior year as a result of favorable reserve adjustments, primarily safety related, and mix related to higher amount of project work compared with maintenance.

S&A expenses for the year were up $12.0 million to $62.6 million, or 13.5% of sales, compared with $50.6 million, or 11.1% of sales, in 2011. Higher S&A expenses included $5.5 million incremental S&A expenses associated with the acquisitions, including $2.9 million in transaction and integration costs and $1.0 million of non-cash intangible amortization expense. Also contributing to the increase was $1.0 million for higher professional fees associated with, among other things, strategic planning and $1.1 million for CEO transition expenses. In addition, approximately $2.5 million in incremental expenses were also invested specifically in the Products Division for the new ERP system implementation, product development and costs associated with facility expansion.

Consolidated operating income in 2012 was $20.4 million, down $6.1 million, or 23.0%, from $26.5 million in 2011. Operating income as a percent of sales was 4.4%, down 140 basis points from 5.8% in the prior year.

Mr. Ramírez said, "We have identified clear opportunities for growth and our base business performance will define our success. Throughout 2013, we will work to create a more competitive cost structure and develop higher value solutions for our customers."

SOLID BALANCE SHEET WITH NO DEBT

Cash provided by operations in the fourth quarter was $2.0 million, down from $14.0 million in the prior year, primarily due to timing of the Products Division's record-level shipments during the quarter, as well as working capital deployed for ongoing projects. Cash used by operations for the full year 2012 was $8.7 million, compared with cash provided by operations of $31.2 million in 2011.

During the quarter, approximately $6.1 million in cash was used to repurchase 385,930 shares. As of December 31, 2012, 1,578,269 shares remain available for repurchase under the share repurchase authorization.

Unrestricted cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2012 was $32.0 million compared with $33.7 million at September 30, 2012 and $99.5 million at December 31, 2011. Cash balances declined relative to the prior year primarily as $44.5 million was used in acquisitions, while
$11.4 million was used for the Company's capital allocation strategy to return a portion of capital to shareholders through dividends and its stock repurchase program. Capital expenditures in 2012 were $5.8 million.

The Company has a $100 million credit facility with an accordion feature for up to $50 million of additional borrowing capacity. As of December 31, 2012, there was no debt outstanding.

BACKLOG AND ORDERS

Total backlog at December 31, 2012 was $393.8 million down from $454.3 million on September 30, 2012, but up from $344.0 million at December 31, 2011.

Backlog for the Products Division was $113.2 million, including $24.5 million of backlog associated with the acquisitions, down from $152.4 million in the trailing third quarter and $130.6 million at the end of the 2011 fourth quarter. Excluding the acquisitions, Products Division backlog declined $42.1 million from the prior year as order levels slowed in the latter half of 2012. Orders for the quarter and year for the Products Division were $40.8 million and $153.1 million, respectively. Offsetting decline in demand for utility-scale natural gas turbine auxiliary equipment were solid orders from oil & gas infrastructure activity. The book-to-bill ratio for the fourth quarter was 0.5x. Excluding acquisitions, book-to-bill ratio for Products in the quarter was 0.4x. Products' book-to-bill ratio for the year was 0.8x.

At December 31, 2012, Services Division backlog was $280.6 million. Backlog declined 7.1% from September 30, 2012 backlog of $301.9 million, but was up measurably from backlog of $213.4 million at the end of 2011. Approximately $74.3 million of backlog is expected to convert to revenue beyond 2013. Services backlog is comprised of expected maintenance work to be performed over the next twelve months and capital projects. The project award-to-revenue ratio was 0.7x and 1.3x for the quarter and year, respectively.

OUTLOOK

Mr. Ramírez noted, "In this environment of macroeconomic uncertainty, our customers want suppliers to serve as partners to help them solve their biggest challenges. As a leader in the natural gas industry, we are developing high value, comprehensive engineered solutions. And, we must continually reinvent ourselves as we provide our customers with the answers that address their toughest problems.

To this end, and in keeping with our focus on the natural gas growth trend, we plan to extend our gas turbine product offering into the industrial turbine segment, while further developing our solid relationships with our utility-scale turbine customers for additional opportunities. We also plan to broaden our services offering and expand into higher value segments such as aftermarket energy parts and the mid-stream natural gas space. By leveraging our customer relationships, engineering expertise and core competencies across business segments, we believe we can provide greater value for our customers and enhance our growth potential. We expect that 2013 will be a year of transition as we align priorities and investments to support our long term strategy."

For 2013, the Company estimates that 2013 consolidated revenue will be in the range of $485 million to $515 million. Revenue in the Products Division is expected to be $185 million to $205 million. Revenue from utility-scale natural gas turbine OEM projects are expected to be lower based on current order levels and backlog. Partially offsetting this effect will be incremental revenue from the acquisitions and the diversified end markets served. Services Division revenue is expected to be between $300 million and $310 million, representing 11% to 15% growth. There are two additional nuclear power facility outages planned by customers.

Gross margin is expected to be between 17% and 18% for 2013. Products gross margin will be in the low 20% range reflecting projects in backlog, while Services gross margin will reflect its typical 12% to 14% range given the level of maintenance work versus capital projects. Operating expenses are expected to be in the range of $62 million to $65 million, or 12% to 13% of revenue.

The Company expects that the effective tax rate for 2013 will be approximately 30% to 35% with the first half of the year expected to be in the 37% to 42% range and the second half of the year between 28% and 33% as a result of how earnings are expected to flow through the year.

Global Power has planned approximately $6.0 million to $8.0 million in capital expenditures for 2013.
