Williams Industrial Services Group Inc. (NYSE American: WLMS) (“Williams” or the “Company”), an energy and industrial infrastructure services company, today reported financial results for the fiscal first quarter ended March 31, 2023.

Recent Highlights

  • Williams posted revenue of $103.5 million in the first quarter of 2023 compared with $69.6 million in the corresponding period of 2022, largely resulting from increased nuclear business due to a customer outage which is scheduled to conclude in the second quarter.
  • Williams reported a net loss from continuing operations of $0.1 million, or $(0.01) per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2023 compared with $2.0 million, or $(0.08) per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2022.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 for the Company was $3.3 million for the first quarter of 2023 compared with $0.1 million in the prior-year period.
  • As of March 31, 2023, the Company’s backlog was $234.9 million compared with $333.2 million as of December 31, 2022; approximately $100.5 million of the current backlog is expected to be converted to revenue over the next twelve months.
  • The Company’s liquidity issues will likely persist throughout 2023 and into 2024 based on negative cash flows related to lower revenue expectations in the second half and costs associated with exiting its underperforming water, chemical and transmission and distribution (“T&D”) operations.
  • The Company exited its Tampa-based T&D operations during the quarter and, thereafter; it expects to finalize the closure of its Norwalk-based T&D operations in the second quarter. Williams’ wind-down of its chemical and water operations is ongoing. The Company incurred losses of $3.8 million in these underperforming operations during the first quarter.
  • Williams continues to work with Greenhill & Company to review strategic alternatives.

“Greater than anticipated customer outage-related work in the first quarter of 2023 positively impacted Williams, resulting in higher revenue and EBITDA year-over-year,” said Tracy Pagliara, President and CEO of Williams. “In addition, consistent with our overall strategic review of the business, we are further streamlining the Company by exiting underperforming water, chemical and T&D operations. While our core nuclear and fossil business exceeded our forecast for this quarter, the underperforming operations negatively impacted results. Given our reduced expectations for the second half of the year and corresponding liquidity challenges, we continue to evaluate further strategic alternatives for the Company.”

First Quarter 2023 Financial Results Compared to First Quarter 2022

Revenue in the first quarter rose to $103.5 million from $69.6 million in the first quarter of 2022, largely reflecting $40.8 million of incremental nuclear business year-over-year; the increase was primarily due to project work performed during a customer outage, which is now scheduled to conclude in the second quarter. Gross profit was $7.7 million, or 7.4% of revenue, compared with $5.7 million, or 8.2% of revenue, in the prior-year period, with the lower margin primarily due to the impact of certain underperforming water contracts in Florida and chemical projects in Texas and costs tied to the Company’s ongoing process to exit the T&D business. Excluding the aforementioned, adjusted gross margin would have been 12.2% of revenue.

Operating expenses were $6.1 million in the 2023 first quarter compared with $6.5 million in the prior-year period. The Company reported operating income of $1.6 million during the first quarter of 2023 versus an operating loss of $0.8 million in the corresponding period of 2022. Interest expense was $1.8 million in the first quarter of 2023 versus $1.2 million in 2022. The Company reported a net loss from continuing operations of $0.1 million, or $(0.01) per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2023 compared with a net loss from continuing operations of $2.0 million, or $(0.08) per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2022.

Liquidity and Balance Sheet

The Company’s total liquidity (the sum of unrestricted cash and availability under the Company’s revolving credit facility) was $6.2 million as of March 31, 2023 versus $3.8 million at the beginning of the year. As of March 31, 2023, the Company had approximately $48,000 of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents, $0.5 million of restricted cash, and $43.6 million of bank debt compared with $0.5 million of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents, $0.5 million of restricted cash, and $40.8 million of bank debt as of December 31, 2022.

As previously announced, Williams has developed a liquidity plan to reduce operating expenses and eliminate unprofitable businesses. The Company exited its non-performing T&D operations in Florida and completed some under-performing chemical projects in Houston. The Company is also in the process of exiting the T&D market in Connecticut, which it anticipates will be complete during the second quarter. Due to contractual commitments, the Company continues to fund Florida water projects resulting in further losses, negatively impacting liquidity. The Company will need to continue to refine its liquidity strategy as circumstances dictate, particularly as revenue is expected to fall in the second half and the Company’s borrowing base will contract as a result, costs to complete the water projects continue, expenses related to the review of strategic alternatives are incurred, and customer payment terms fluctuate. Further funding will likely be necessary to address liquidity issues in the future; additional information can be found in Williams’ filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, including liquidity disclosures and related risk factors.

Backlog

Total backlog as of March 31, 2023 was $234.9 million compared with $333.2 million on December 31, 2022. During the first quarter of 2023 the Company recognized revenue of $103.5 million, booked new awards of $16.1 million, and saw net adjustments and cancellations of $10.9 million.

Williams estimates that approximately $100.5 million of its current backlog will be converted to revenue within the next twelve months compared with $178.6 million of backlog as of December 31, 2022 that the Company anticipated would be converted to revenue over the succeeding twelve-month period. The decrease in backlog was primarily driven by converting several large nuclear projects to revenue and exiting the T&D end markets. At the same time, current backlog also reflects the fact that the Company is pursuing a narrower set of core markets for new business and that the release of public funding under the Inflation Reduction Act and Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Acts into those markets is moving more slowly than originally anticipated.

GROSS MARGIN RECONCILIATION

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURE (UNAUDITED)

The following table reconciles our adjusted gross margin to actual gross margin by deducting the T&D, Chemical and large lump sum water projects that are underperforming. The Company believes this information is meaningful as it isolates the impact that these underperforming projects have on gross margin. Because adjusted gross margin is not calculated in accordance with GAAP, it may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies and should not be considered in isolation or as substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

ADJUSTED EBITDA - CONTINUING OPERATIONS – RECONCILIATION INCLUDING LOSS CONTRACTS

The following table reconciles our adjusted EBITDA by adding back the T&D, Chemical and lump sum Water projects that generated losses. The Company believes this information is meaningful as it isolates the impact of these underperforming service lines that the Company is in the process of exiting.

NOTE 1 — Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA-Continuing Operations

Adjusted EBITDA is not calculated through the application of GAAP and is not the required form of disclosure by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Adjusted EBITDA is the sum of the Company’s income (loss) from continuing operations before interest expense, net, and income tax (benefit) expense and unusual gains or charges. It also excludes non-cash charges such as depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation. The Company’s management believes adjusted EBITDA is an important measure of operating performance because it allows management, investors and others to evaluate and compare the performance of its core operations from period to period by removing the impact of the capital structure (interest), tangible and intangible asset base (depreciation and amortization), taxes and certain non-cash expenses and unusual gains or charges (such as stock-based compensation, severance costs, other professional fees, and foreign currency (gain) loss) which are not always commensurate with the reporting period in which such items are included. Williams’ credit facilities also contain ratios based on EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net income or income from continuing operations or as a better measure of liquidity than net cash flows from operating activities, as determined by GAAP, and, therefore, should not be used in isolation from, but in conjunction with, the GAAP measures. The use of any non-GAAP measure may produce results that vary from the GAAP measure and may not be comparable to a similarly defined non-GAAP measure used by other companies.

Note Regarding Forward-Looking Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company does not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to their comparable GAAP financial measures because it could not do so without unreasonable effort due to the unavailability of the information needed to calculate reconciling items and due to the variability, complexity and limited visibility of the adjusting items that would be excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures in future periods. When planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods, the Company does so primarily on a non-GAAP basis without preparing a GAAP analysis.
