DALLAS, Feb. 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Primoris Services Corporation (NASDAQ GS: PRIM) (“Primoris” or “Company”) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2020 and provided the Company’s financial outlook.

For the full year 2020, Primoris reported the following highlights:

  • Record revenue of $3.5 billion, an increase of 12 percent over prior year
  • Record net income attributable to Primoris of $105.0 million, an increase of 28 percent over prior year
  • Record fully diluted earnings per share of $2.16, an increase of 34 percent over prior year
  • Cash flows from operations of $311.9 million, compared to $118.0 million in the prior year
  • Backlog of $2.8 billion as of December 31, 2020

For the fourth quarter 2020, Primoris reported the following highlights:

  • Revenue of $897.3 million, an increase of 14 percent over prior year
  • Net income attributable to Primoris of $31.8 million, an increase of 18 percent over prior year
  • Fully diluted earnings per share of $0.66, an increase of 25 percent over prior year

On January 15, 2021, Primoris acquired Future Infrastructure Holdings, LLC (“Future Infrastructure” or “FIH”) in an all-cash transaction valued at $621.7 million. The transaction expands the Company’s utility services capabilities and directly aligns with Primoris’ strategy to grow in large, higher-growth, higher-margin markets.

The Company also announced that on February 19, 2021 its Board of Directors declared a $0.06 per share cash dividend to stockholders of record on March 31, 2021, payable on or about April 15, 2021.

“The numbers paint a clear picture of the success of our strategy even in a difficult market,” Tom McCormick, President and Chief Executive Officer of Primoris, said. “Our record revenue of $3.5 billion was up over 12 percent compared to the previous year and our earnings per share were the highest they have ever been. Our January acquisition of Future Infrastructure reinforces our commitment to higher-margin growth and recurring revenue going forward.”

“This has been a record year for us both operationally and financially,” he continued. “I especially want to acknowledge our management teams and employees for their focus on workplace safety during the course of the year. Our Total Recordable Incident Rate for 2020 was one of the best in the Company’s history – 0.53, well below the industry average. Overall, we achieved a successful year for our shareholders, our customers and our employees in 2020. We are off to a strong start for 2021 and are looking forward to what the Primoris family of companies can achieve.”

Summarizing the segment results for the year, McCormick noted: “Our Pipeline segment led the revenue growth with a 77.6 percent increase compared to 2019, primarily due to new pipeline projects in Texas. Solar energy projects and an Industrial project positioned our Power segment to increase revenue by 9.1 percent. In our Utilities segment, growth in revenue and higher margins resulted from increased activity and productivity with customers. Our Transmission segment recorded lower revenue, but higher margins – 9.8 percent – as we continue to be more selective in the types of work we perform and also benefited from an increase in storm work. While our Civil segment’s gross margins, as expected, declined slightly from last year due to the fact that they did not benefit from a large claim settlement in 2020, our project execution remains strong and the segment continues to perform within our target margin range.”

Power, Industrial, & Engineering Segment (“Power”): Revenue increased by $18.0 million, or 8.5 percent, for the three months ended December 31, 2020, compared to the same period in 2019. The increase is primarily due to an increase in solar energy projects and industrial projects in Louisiana and California which began in 2020, partially offset by lower revenue at our Canadian industrial operations. Gross profit for the three months ended December 31, 2020, decreased by $4.8 million compared to the same period in 2019, primarily due to lower margins offset by higher revenue. Gross profit as a percentage of revenue decreased to 5.4 percent during the three months ended December 31, 2020, compared to 8.2 percent in the same period in 2019, primarily due to higher costs associated with a liquefied natural gas (“LNG”) plant project in the Northeast in 2020, partially offset by strong performance and favorable margins realized on our solar projects in 2020 and higher costs associated with two industrial projects in 2019.

Pipeline & Underground Segment (“Pipeline”): Revenue increased by $102.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020, compared to the same period in 2019. The increase is primarily due to pipeline projects in Texas that began in 2020. Gross profit for the three months ended December 31, 2020, increased by $10.5 million, or 68.7 percent, compared to the same period in 2019, primarily due to higher revenue partially offset by lower margins. Gross profit as a percentage of revenue decreased to 12.8 percent during the three months ended December 31, 2020, compared to 15.4 percent in the same period in 2019, primarily due to the favorable impact from closeout of multiple pipeline projects in 2019, partially offset by strong performance and favorable margins realized on other pipeline projects in 2020.

Utilities & Distribution Segment (“Utilities”): Revenue decreased by $6.2 million, or 2.6 percent, for the three months ended December 31, 2020, compared to the same period in 2019, primarily due to decreased activity with California utility customers. Gross profit for the three months ended December 31, 2020, increased by $2.9 million, or 10.1 percent, compared to the same period in 2019, primarily due to higher margins offset by lower revenue. Gross profit as a percentage of revenue increased to 13.7 percent during the three months ended December 31, 2020, compared to 12.1 percent in the same period in 2019, primarily due to favorable margins on projects in the Southeast from increased productivity in 2020 and extreme weather conditions experienced in certain regions in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Transmission & Distribution Segment (“Transmission”): Revenue increased by $17.4 million, or 15.1 percent, for the three months ended December 31, 2020, compared to the same period in 2019, primarily due to increased activity with a significant utility customer in Texas. Gross profit for the three months ended December 31, 2020, increased by $15.1 million compared to the same period in 2019, primarily due to higher revenue and margins. Gross profit as a percentage of revenue increased to 12.1 percent during the three months ended December 31, 2020, compared to 0.8 percent in the same period in 2019. The increase was primarily due to improving our project performance and reducing overhead and indirect costs in 2020, as well as an increase in higher margin storm work in 2020 and upfront costs in 2019 to expand our operations.

Civil Segment (“Civil”): Revenue decreased by $23.7 million, or 18.5 percent, for the three months ended December 31, 2020, compared to the same period in 2019. The decrease is primarily due to a LNG plant project and a methanol plant project from 2019 that were substantially complete in the third quarter of 2020 and lower Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (“DOTD”) volumes. Gross profit for the three months ended December 31, 2020, decreased by $15.4 million compared to the same period in 2019, due primarily to lower revenue and margins. Gross profit as a percentage of revenue decreased to 11.4 percent during the three months ended December 31, 2020, compared to 21.4 percent in the same period in 2019, due primarily to the increase in expected claim recovery on two Belton corridor projects in 2019, partially offset by increased profit on Louisiana DOTD projects.

Full Year 2020 Results Overview
Revenue was $3,491.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, an increase of $385.2 million, or 12.4 percent, compared to the same period in 2019. The increase was primarily due to growth in our Pipeline and Power segments, partially offset by lower revenue in our Transmission and Civil segments. Gross profit was $370.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, an increase of $39.3 million, or 11.9 percent, compared to the same period in 2019. The increase was primarily due to an increase in revenue. Gross profit as a percentage of revenue was comparable to 2019.

Power: Revenue increased by $66.1 million, or 9.1 percent, for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to the same period in 2019. The increase is primarily due to an increase in solar energy projects and progress on an industrial project for a utility customer in California, partially offset by lower revenue at our Canadian industrial operations and the substantial completion of an industrial plant project that began in 2019. Gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2020, decreased by $22.6 million, compared to the same period in 2019 primarily due to lower margins, partially offset by higher revenue. Gross profit as a percentage of revenue decreased to 6.7 percent during the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to 10.4 percent in 2019 primarily due to higher costs associated with a LNG plant project in the Northeast in 2020, partially offset by strong performance and favorable margins realized on solar projects in 2020 and higher costs associated with two industrial projects in 2019.

Pipeline: Revenue increased by $391.8 million, or 77.6 percent, for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to the same period in 2019. The increase is primarily due to pipeline projects in Texas that began in 2020, partially offset by the cancellation of a pipeline project in the Mid-Atlantic and the substantial completion of a pipeline project in 2019. Gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2020, increased by $35.9 million, or 58.3 percent, compared to the same period in 2019, primarily due to higher revenue, partially offset by lower margins. Gross profit as a percentage of revenue decreased to 10.9 percent during 2020, compared to 12.2 percent in 2019 primarily due to higher costs on pipeline projects in Virginia and Texas in 2020 and the favorable impact from the close out of multiple pipeline projects in 2019, partially offset by strong performance and favorable margins realized on a Texas pipeline project in 2020.

Utilities: Revenue increased by $20.1 million for 2020 compared to 2019, primarily due to increased activity with customers in nearly all of the geographic regions the Company operates, partially offset by decreased activity with two utility customers in California. Gross profit for the year 2020 increased by $16.3 million, or 14.0 percent, compared to 2019 primarily due to higher revenue and margins. Gross profit as a percentage of revenue increased to 14.7 percent during 2020, compared to 13.2 percent in 2019 primarily due to favorable margins on projects in the Southeast from increased productivity in 2020 and unfavorable weather conditions experienced in the Midwest during 2019.

Transmission: Revenue decreased by $38.3 million, or 7.7 percent, during 2020 compared to 2019 primarily due to decreased activity with utility customers in Texas, the Midwest, and the Southeast and the Company’s selection of the type of work it performs. Gross profit increased by $22.3 million compared to 2019, primarily due to higher margins, partially offset by lower revenue. Gross profit as a percentage of revenue increased to 9.8 percent during 2020 compared to 4.5 percent in 2019. The increase was primarily due to upfront costs to expand the Company’s operations in 2019, weather conditions experienced in certain regions in 2019, the Company’s better selection of the type of work it performed in 2020 and an increase in higher-margin storm work in 2020.

Civil: Revenue decreased by $54.5 million, or 11.2 percent, for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to 2019. The decrease is primarily due to lower Texas Department of Transportation (“DOT”) volumes, the substantial completion of a project with a major refining customer and an ethylene plant project in 2019. These amounts were partially offset by a LNG plant project in Texas that began in late 2019. Gross profit for 2020 decreased by $12.6 million compared to 2019, due primarily to lower revenue and margins. Gross profit as a percentage of revenue decreased to 9.6 percent in 2020 compared to 11.1 percent in 2019, due primarily to the resolution of claims associated with three of the Belton-area projects in 2019, partially offset by strong performance on a LNG plant project in Texas in 2020, increased profit on Louisiana DOTD projects and resolution of claims associated with the two remaining Belton-corridor projects in 2020.

Other Income Statement Information
Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses were $202.8 million during the year ended December 31, 2020, an increase of $12.8 million, or 6.7 percent, compared to 2019 primarily due to a $7.4 million increase in compensation related expenses, including incentive compensation, and a $3.4 million increase in new information technology systems and related implementation expenses. SG&A expense as a percentage of revenue decreased to 5.8 percent in 2020 compared to 6.1 percent in 2019.

Interest expense for the year ended December 31, 2020, was comparable to 2019.

The effective tax rate on income attributable to Primoris (excluding noncontrolling interests) was 27.9 percent for the year ended December 31, 2020. The rate differs from the U.S. federal statutory rate of 21.0 percent primarily due to state income taxes and nondeductible components of per diem expenses.

Outlook
Balancing the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic with the expected growth in operations, Primoris estimates that for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2021, net income attributable to Primoris will be between $2.40 and $2.60 per fully diluted share. The Company is targeting SG&A expense as a percentage of revenue in the high-five percent to low six percent range for 2021. The Company estimates capital expenditures for 2021 in the range of $60 to $80 million.

The guidance provided above constitutes forward-looking statements, which are based on current economic conditions and estimates, and the Company does not include other potential impacts, such as changes in accounting or unusual items.

At December 31, 2020, Fixed Backlog was $1.6 billion compared to $1.8 billion at December 31, 2019. The decrease in Fixed Backlog includes the net reduction of $0.4 billion of backlog associated with a major pipeline project in the Mid-Atlantic that was cancelled in 2020.

At December 31, 2020, MSA Backlog was $1.1 billion compared to $1.4 billion at December 31, 2019. MSA Backlog represents estimated MSA revenue for the next four quarters.

Total Backlog at December 31, 2020, was $2.8 billion, compared to $3.2 billion at December 31, 2019.

Backlog, including estimated MSA revenue, should not be considered a comprehensive indicator of future revenue. Revenue from certain projects where scope, and therefore contract value, is not adequately defined, is not included in Fixed Backlog. At any time, any project may be cancelled at the convenience of our customers.

Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic
The Company continues to take steps to protect its employees’ health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. Primoris has a written corporate COVID-19 Plan in-place, as well as Business Continuity Plans (by business unit and segment), based on guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and their Canadian counterparts.

Recognizing the broader impact that the COVID-19 pandemic is having on local communities, Primoris has donated funds to support frontline emergency response and medical workers and made numerous local donations of personal protective equipment to hospitals and medical facilities.

Share Repurchase Program
In February 2020, our Board of Directors authorized a $25.0 million share repurchase program. During the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company purchased and cancelled 694,260 shares of common stock, which in the aggregate equaled $11.5 million at an average share price of $16.50. The share repurchase plan expired on December 31, 2020.

Other Business Updates
Beginning with the first quarter of 2021, the Company will consolidate and reorganize its operating segments. The three reorganized segments will be: Utilities, Energy and Pipeline Services.

The Company announced new or renewed contracts totaling approximately $285 million in value during the fourth quarter. In January 2021 the Company announced a Limited Notice to Proceed (“LNTP”) on a solar project with an initial value of $19 million and an anticipated final contract value over $200 million. The awards for the quarter included:

  • A new solar award with a value over $100 million for the engineering, procurement, and construction of a utility-solar facility in Texas;
  • Two new pipeline awards with a combined value over $39 million for microtunneling projects located in North Tampa Bay and Silicon Valley;
  • A three-year utility award valued at approximately $36 million for maintenance on a gas pipeline system in Northern California, and;
  • The renewal of a Master Service Agreement with a major energy customer for pipeline maintenance in the Canadian oil sands with an anticipated value of over $110 million over five years.
