Perma-Pipe Announces its First Quarter and Year-to-Date Fiscal 2022 Financial Results

Source: 6/7/2022, Location: North America

• The Company generated net sales of $31.2 million for the first quarter
• Income from operations improved $1.1 million versus the first quarter of 2021
• Backlog of $59.2 million at April 30, 2022 compared to $39.3 million on January 31, 2022

Perma-Pipe International Holdings, Inc. announced financial results for the first quarter ended April 30, 2022.

“Revenues for the first quarter of $31.2 million increased 28% from the $24.4 million for the same quarter last year. The resulting income from operations of $0.2 million was also above the $0.9 million loss incurred in the same quarter of 2021," noted President and CEO David Mansfield. "While both revenues and margins improved, there was a corresponding increase to operating expenses, which was partly due to personnel costs and driven by the increased levels of activity."

"During the first quarter of 2022, the oil and gas market in Canada has been returning to increased levels of investment, and the industry outlooks are positive. There has also been a notable improvement to our results in Saudi Arabia, where investments in construction projects are expected to return to pre-pandemic levels.

"Our current backlog of $59.2 million is 50% higher than our January 31, 2022 backlog. After a significant amount of new awards during the quarter, including in Saudi Arabia and the United States, our backlog is at approximately the same level as it was this time last year, and it is distributed very similarly between our different business units.

"The net income from our results does not reflect the same period improvement as is described above, since there is inconsistency in the rates of taxation in the different countries where we operate, and also because we are not recognizing the full tax benefit of past losses. This makes the calculation of effective tax rates extremely inconsistent from period to period, and this is highlighted in the tax charge for this quarter,” concluded Mr. Mansfield.

First Quarter Fiscal 2022 Results
Net sales were $31.2 million in the current quarter, an increase of $6.8 million, or 28%, from $24.4 million in the prior year quarter. The increase was a result of increased sales volumes, partly due to recovery from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gross profit increased to $7.0 million, or 23% of net sales, in the current quarter from $4.5 million, or 18% of net sales, in the prior year quarter. This increase was driven by higher sales volumes and project and product mix.

General and administrative expenses increased $1.2 million, or 28%, from $4.4 million in the prior year quarter to $5.7 million in the current quarter. Approximately $0.9 million of this increase was the result of increased incentive compensation. This amount was based on 2021 actual payouts as compared to estimated amounts previously accrued in addition to accruals made for 2022 forecasted results as compared to the prior year quarter, where no incentive compensation was recorded. The remainder of the increase was due to additions to headcount in support of the Company's business growth.

Selling expenses were relatively consistent, increasing slightly to $1.2 million in the current quarter, compared to $1.0 million in the prior year quarter.

Net interest expense increased to $0.4 million in the current quarter from $0.2 million in the prior year quarter. This increase was related primarily to the sale leaseback transaction for our operating facility in Tennessee entered into in April 2021.

Other income, net decreased to an income of less than $0.1 million in the current quarter, compared to approximately $0.4 million in the prior year quarter. In the prior year quarter, the Company received grants from the Canadian government under the Canadian Emergency Wage Subsidy ("CEWS") and Canadian Emergency Rent Subsidy ("CERS") programs. The Company was approved for and received approximately $0.3 million and $0.1 million in grants under the CEWS and CERS programs, respectively, during the prior year quarter. Grants to the Company under both programs ended in the second quarter of 2021.

Loss from operations before income taxes decreased by $0.5 million to a loss of $(0.2) million in the current quarter from a loss of $(0.7) million in the prior year quarter. The improvement was a result of increased sales volumes and margins as described above.

The Company's worldwide effective tax rates ("ETR") were (455.9%) and (24.3%) in the current quarter and the prior year quarter, respectively. The change in the ETR from the prior year quarter to the current year quarter is largely due to changes in the mix of income and loss in various jurisdictions.

The resulting net loss of $(0.9) million in the current quarter was relatively consistent with the net loss of $(0.8) million in the prior year quarter.
