-Strategic growth plan expected to accelerate gross profit growth rate over time-
 -New $50 million share repurchase authorization-

CHICAGO, July 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SP Plus Corporation (Nasdaq:SP), a leading provider of parking, ground transportation, baggage handling and related services to commercial, institutional, municipal, and aviation clients throughout North America, today announced its second quarter 2019 results.

Second Quarter Commentary

G Marc Baumann, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Our business continued to perform well in the second quarter, with gross profit and EBITDA up 21% and 19% year-over-year, respectively.  These results reflect the contribution from the Bags acquisition as well as organic gross profit growth of 1%, which would have been 3% if not for fluctuations in the magnitude of favorable insurance loss reserve adjustments affecting the comparable periods.  We now expect full-year 2019 net income and EBITDA, both on a reported and adjusted basis, to come in at the upper-end of our previously provided guidance range.  In addition, we are raising our full-year adjusted and reported EPS guidance ranges by $0.05 per share, primarily to reflect the impact of share repurchases.

“The Bags acquisition has integrated well and is growing in line with our expectations. With respect to organic growth, we continued in the second quarter to leverage our market leadership to make good progress on our national accounts initiative.  As we announced last week, we were awarded our first group purchasing agreement with a leading healthcare improvement company representing approximately 4,000 hospitals.  Additionally, we are in active discussions with large commercial property managers, national hospitality interests, and large healthcare systems with the goal of being a preferred provider to these organizations.

“Our moderate leverage coupled with our ability to generate significant free cash flow has enabled us to return value to stockholders in the form of accretive share buybacks totaling $19.6 million so far this year, including approximately $6.0 million that was completed subsequent to the end of the second quarter.  We are pleased that our Board of Directors has approved a new $50 million share repurchase authorization, which provides additional flexibility as we pursue a balanced capital allocation strategy.”

Strategic Growth Plan  

Mr. Baumann continued, “Earlier this year, we indicated that we were working to identify the long-term strategic growth opportunities for Bags and the combined Company.  The addressable market for Bags is sizable and Bags is the only provider of multi-airline Remote Airline Check-in (RAC) services in North America.  The current penetration of RAC services is low, providing substantial opportunity to grow this business as well as expand our market position in other aviation outsourced services.  At the same time, there are significant opportunities to cross-sell services between the combined businesses, particularly in our aviation vertical.   We are executing on our go-to-market strategy to penetrate this market and leverage cross-selling opportunities and have had several early successes.  This early progress is encouraging, and we are moving ahead aggressively to take advantage of our unique positioning in this vertical, while recognizing that the sales cycle in the aviation vertical can be multi-year.

“In addition to our national accounts initiative, vertical markets where we have relatively low penetration, such as healthcare, hospitality and municipalities have been a key focus of our business development strategy to drive growth.

“We believe that successful execution of this multi-pronged strategy for the combined business will enable us to achieve sustainable gross profit growth at a rate of 3% to 4% over time, representing a 50% to 100% improvement from our recent historical gross profit growth rate.  We anticipate this will also drive significant operating leverage that we expect will support additional growth in EBITDA and EPS.”

Second Quarter Operating Results

Reported and adjusted gross profit in the second quarter increased 21% in 2019 to $61.9 million, up from $51.1 million and $51.2 million, respectively, in the same quarter of 2018.  The year-over-year increase in reported and adjusted gross profit was due to the acquisition of Bags in the fourth quarter of 2018 and organic growth of 1% that was driven by strong year-over-year growth from existing business (i.e., same operating locations).  Organic gross profit growth would have been 3% if not for changes in prior-year casualty loss reserve adjustments that were more favorable in the second quarter of 2018 than the second quarter of 2019.

Reported general and administrative (“G&A”) expenses for the second quarter of 2019 were $27.7 million compared to $22.3 million in the same period of 2018, an increase of $5.4 million or 24%.  Adjusted G&A expenses for the second quarter of 2019 were $27.4 million, an increase of $6.7 million or 32% from the same quarter of 2018.  Adjusted G&A was higher than last year due primarily to the acquisition of Bags in the fourth quarter of 2018, higher compensation and benefit costs, as well as the non-recurrence of a $1.7 million cost recovery received from a vendor partner that reduced G&A in the second quarter of 2018.

Reported net income attributable to SP Plus and reported earnings per share were $15.2 million and $0.68 per share, respectively, in the second quarter of 2019 as compared to $15.3 million and $0.68 per share, respectively, in the same period of 2018.  Adjusted earnings per share increased $0.04 per share, or 5%, to $0.81 for the second quarter of 2019 from $0.77 for the second quarter of 2018.  With the share buybacks spread out over the quarter, the earnings per share benefit from lower weighted average shares outstanding due to share repurchases was $0.01.  Adjusted earnings per share for both periods excludes amortization of all recognized intangible assets from completed acquisitions.  Higher 2019 operating income, primarily driven by the Bags acquisition, was partially offset by higher interest expense on debt used to fund the acquisition. 

EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA increased by 19% and 13%, respectively, over the second quarter of 2018 due to the above-identified factors that affected reported and adjusted gross profit and reported and adjusted G&A.

Year-to-Date Operating Results

Reported and adjusted gross profit in the first half of 2019 increased 27% to $115.1 million, as compared to $90.6 million in the same period of 2018.  The year-over-year increase in reported and adjusted gross profit was due to the fourth quarter 2018 acquisition of Bags as well as strong organic growth of 5%, largely due to growth from existing business.  Year-over-year organic gross profit for the first half of 2019 also benefitted from the non-recurrence of a 2018 non-cash write-off related to an early lease termination and some favorability due to the timing of a lease contract modification that was not expected to occur until later this year. Excluding these items, organic gross profit growth would have been 3%.

Reported general and administrative (“G&A”) expenses for the first half of 2019 were $54.8 million as compared to $44.6 million in the same period of 2018, an increase of $10.2 million, or 23%.  Adjusted G&A expenses for the first half of 2019 were $53.5 million, an increase of $11.8 million, or 28%, from the same period of 2018.  Adjusted G&A was higher than last year due primarily to the acquisition of Bags in the fourth quarter of 2018, higher compensation and benefit costs, as well as the non-recurrence of a $1.7 million cost recovery received from a vendor partner that reduced G&A in the second quarter of 2018.

Reported net income attributable to SP Plus and reported earnings per share were $25.8 million and $1.14 per share, respectively, in the first half of 2019 as compared to $30.6 million and $1.36 per share, respectively, in the same period of 2018, with $0.33 per share of the decrease attributable to the net gain from the first quarter 2018 sale of a joint venture interest in Parkmobile.  Adjusted earnings per share increased by $0.20 per share, or 17%, to $1.41 for the first half of 2019 from $1.21 for the first half of 2018.  Lower weighted average shares outstanding for the year-to-date period due to share repurchases benefitted earnings per share by $0.01.  Higher 2019 operating income, driven by the Bags acquisition and strong organic growth, was partially offset by higher interest expense on debt used to fund the acquisition. 

Reported and adjusted EBITDA increased 32% and 27%, respectively, over the first half of 2018 due to the above-identified factors that affected reported and adjusted gross profit and reported and adjusted G&A.

Net cash from operations of $21.3 million was generated during the first half of 2019 and resulting free cash flow was $14.5 million, as compared to free cash flow of $21.0 million generated in the first half of 2018.  Year-to-date free cash flow was in-line with our expectations, which contemplated certain working capital items reverting to more normal levels in 2019.

Recent Developments

Year-to-date through July 30, 2019, the Company repurchased $19.6 million of common stock, of which $2.3 million was repurchased during the first quarter, $11.3 million was repurchased during the second quarter, and approximately $6.0 million was repurchased subsequent to the end of the second quarter.  As a result, $3.0 million remains available under the share repurchase authorization approved by the Company’s Board of Directors in 2016.  In addition, in July 2019, the Company’s Board of Directors approved a new $50 million share repurchase authorization.

Recent new business and renewal activity highlights include:

  • A pilot program to provide Bags’ Remote Airline Check-in services at three hotels in Seattle to transport hotel guest baggage to the cruise port on cruise days.
  • An expansion of the Company’s relationship with the Parking Authority of Baltimore City, bringing to six the number of locations SP+ manages for the municipality.

  • A new relationship with Artemis Properties for SP+ to manage four of its five parking assets in Baltimore, Maryland.
  • A contract to manage event parking operations for Penn State University’s upcoming 2019 football season, which came about as a result of a SP+ Consulting Services operations review.
  • A multi-year contract renewal for SP+ GAMEDAY to continue to provide transportation and event logistics services for the National Football League’s Super Bowl event.

2019 Outlook

Reported EPS is now expected to be in the range of $2.10 - $2.20 per share and adjusted EPS is now expected to be in the range of $2.61 - $2.71.  Both EPS measures have been increased by $0.05 per share primarily to reflect EPS accretion from recent share repurchases. The Company reaffirms its previously provided guidance on all other measures, with reported and adjusted Net income and EBITDA expected to be at the upper-end of the previously provided guidance range. 

GAAP Measures:

  • Reported net income attributable to SP Plus is expected to be in the range of $46 - $49 million
  • Reported EPS is now expected to be in the range of $2.10 to $2.20 per share
  • Net cash provided by operating activities is expected to be in the range of $54 - $68 million

Non-GAAP Measures:                                                 

  • Adjusted net income attributable to SP Plus is expected to be in the range of $58 - $61 million
  • Adjusted EPS is now expected to be in the range of $2.61 to $2.71 per share
  • EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $110 - $120 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $111 - $121 million
  • Free cash flow is expected to be in the range of $40 - $50 million 

This guidance does not contemplate any additional acquisitions, business dispositions, or asset sales outside of the normal course of business, nor any additional share repurchases.

Stock Repurchase Programs

The Company’s stock purchase programs do not obligate the Company to acquire any particular dollar amount or number of shares or to acquire shares on any particular timetable, and the programs may be suspended at any time at the Company’s discretion.  The Company will make any repurchases of shares on the open market, which may include repurchases pursuant to Rule 10b5-1 trading plans, at times and prices considered appropriate, from time to time at the discretion of the Company, and subject to its assessment of alternative uses of capital, stock trading price, general market conditions, applicable legal and regulatory requirements and other relevant factors.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company considers certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  Certain non-GAAP measures, such as adjusted gross profit, adjusted general and administrative expenses (adjusted G&A), adjusted net income attributable to SP Plus (adjusted net income), adjusted net income per share attributable to SP Plus (adjusted EPS), and adjusted EBITDA exclude items that management does not consider indicative of its core performance.  Such adjustments include, among other things: (i) restructuring, acquisition and integration related costs, including costs incurred to evaluate acquisitions; (ii) non-routine settlements; (iii) the amortization of acquired intangible assets; (iv) the impact of non-routine asset sales or dispositions; (v) the net loss or gains and the financial results related to sold businesses; (vi) the equity in income or losses from investment in unconsolidated entities; and (vii) non-routine tax items. Pre-tax adjustments are tax affected at a statutory tax rate of 26% for 2018 and 27% for 2019, for adjusted net income and adjusted EPS purposes.

The Company defines EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, as U.S GAAP net income attributable to the Company before (i) interest expense net of interest income, (ii) provision for income taxes, (iii) depreciation and amortization, (iv) gain on sale of a business or contribution of a business to an unconsolidated entity, and (v) equity in the gains or losses from investment in unconsolidated entities. Adjusted EBITDA excludes items that management does not consider indicative of its core performance, as defined per above. The Company believes that the presentation of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA provide useful information regarding the Company’s operating performance and are useful measures to facilitate comparisons to our historical and future operating results. The Company's definition of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

The Company defines free cash flow as net cash from operating activities, less cash used for investing activities (exclusive of cash used for acquisitions and net after-tax cash proceeds from the sale of businesses or joint venture related assets), less distribution to non-controlling interest, plus the effect of exchange rate changes on cash and cash equivalents. The Company believes that the presentation of free cash flow provides useful information regarding its ability to generate cash flow from business operations after funding capital expenditures, that can be used to, among other things, repay debt, fund strategic acquisitions, and return value to shareholders. The Company's definition of free cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to U.S. GAAP financial measures, to evaluate its operating and financial performance and to compare such performance to that of prior periods and to the performance of its competitors. Additionally, the Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making operational and financial decisions and in the Company’s budgeting and planning process. The Company believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures to investors helps investors evaluate the Company’s operating performance, profitability and business trends in a way that is consistent with how management evaluates such performance and consistent with guidance previously provided by the Company. Adjusted gross profit, adjusted G&A, adjusted net income, adjusted EPS, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow and organic gross profit should not be considered in isolation of, or as alternatives to, or more meaningful indicators of the Company's operating performance or liquidity than, gross profit, G&A, net income, EPS, or net cash provided by operating activities, as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, the Company's calculation of these non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

For reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures, see the accompanying tables to this release.
