Mayville Engineering Company, Inc. Announces First Quarter 2019 Results

Positive Operating Results and Progress with Integration of DMP
Acquisition; Successfully Completed IPO on May 13, 2019

MAYVILLE, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mayville Engineering Company (NYSE: MEC) (the “Company” or “MEC”), a
leading U.S.-based value-added manufacturing partner that provides a
broad range of prototyping and tooling, production fabrication, coating,
assembly and aftermarket services, today announced results for the first
quarter ended March 31, 2019.

Highlights:

  • Produced net sales of $143.7 million.
  • Generated net income of $2.5 million.
  • Recorded Adjusted EBITDA of $16.8 million.
  • Substantial progress with integration of Defiance Metal Products
    Co. (“DMP”), acquired in December 2018.
  • Completed IPO in May generating total net proceeds of $101.8
    million.

We are pleased with our performance this quarter, which reflects the
ongoing strength of our diverse markets served and agile operations
combined with the addition of DMP near the end of last year,” noted
Robert D. Kamphuis, Chairman, President and CEO of Mayville Engineering
Company. “Our recent IPO and subsequent debt reduction provided a
significant increase in financial flexibility and we are well positioned
to execute our growth strategy going forward. We are excited to partner
our new shareholders with our ESOP shareholders whereby alignment and
commitment to achieving our goals is a competitive advantage.”

First Quarter 2019 Results
Net
sales were $143.7 million for the first quarter of 2019 compared to
$87.2 million for the same prior year period, an increase of $56.5
million, or 64.8%. DMP contributed $50.2 million, or 57.5%, of the
increase. The remaining $6.3 million, or 7.3% of the increase, was due
to organic growth of our legacy business, mostly driven by increased
volumes.

Manufacturing margins were $19.6 million for the first quarter of 2019
compared to $11.8 million for the same prior year period, an increase of
$7.8 million, or 65.8%. DMP accounted for $5.6 million, or 47.5%, of the
increase. The remaining $2.2 million was driven by improved utilization
in our legacy business mostly due to increased volumes.

Depreciation and amortization expenses were $7.7 million for the first
quarter of 2019 compared to $5.0 million for the same prior year period,
an increase of $2.7 million, or 53.2%. DMP accounted for $0.7 million of
the $0.9 million increase in depreciation expense with the remaining
$0.2 million attributable to the legacy business’ investments in
technology. The $1.7 million increase in amortization expense was solely
driven by amortization of identifiable intangible assets related to the
DMP acquisition.

Other selling, general and administrative expenses were $7.6 million for
the first quarter of 2019 compared to $2.9 million for the same prior
year period. The increase of $4.7 million was primarily driven by
one-time expenses including $1.8 million related to the Company’s
initial public offering (“IPO”) and the DMP acquisition along with $0.9
million related to the DMP contingent consideration fair value
adjustment. The DMP acquired entities accounted for another $1.5 million
of the increase with the remainder mostly attributable to personnel
additions needed to enhance the company’s structure of being a publicly
traded company and support future growth.

Income tax expenses were $0.8 million for the first quarter of 2019,
compared to $29 thousand for the same prior year period. The increase of
$0.7 million is due to the acquisition of the DMP entities, which are
taxable under the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code and certain
state statutes. Prior to the Company’s IPO, the Company’s legacy
business was an S Corporation, where substantially all taxes were passed
to the shareholders and the Company did not pay federal or state
corporate income taxes on its taxable income. In connection with the
IPO, the Company’s legacy business converted to a C Corporation. As a
result, the consolidated business will be subject to paying federal and
state corporate income taxes on its taxable income from May 12, 2019
forward.

EBITDA and EBITDA Margin percent were $13.7 million and 9.5%,
respectively, for the first quarter of 2019, compared to $10.4 million
and 11.9%, respectively, for the first quarter of 2018. The $3.3 million
increase in EBITDA was due to the acquisition of DMP as well as the
organic growth of our legacy business. The decline in EBITDA Margin
percentage from 11.9% to 9.5% was primarily due to one-time expenses
incurred during the first quarter of 2019. These one-time expenses
included $0.4 million of expenses related to the DMP inventory fair
value step-up, $1.8 million of one-time expenses related to the IPO and
the DMP acquisition, and $0.9 million related to the DMP contingent
consideration fair value adjustment.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin percent were $16.8
million and 11.7%, respectively, for the first quarter of 2019, compared
to $10.4 million and 11.9%, respectively, for the first quarter of 2018.
The increase in Adjusted EBITDA of $6.4 million was due to our recent
acquisition of DMP and growth in our legacy business.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity
Our
total outstanding debt balance, which includes long-term debt and bank
revolving credit notes, was $186.6 million as of March 31, 2019 compared
to $179.9 million as of December 31, 2018. Funds provided by the $6.7
million debt increase were primarily used for capital expenditures.

As previously announced, the Company completed its IPO on May 13, 2019
generating approximately $101.8 million of total proceeds net of
underwriting discounts and commissions. All of these proceeds have been
used to pay down debt balances.

Outlook
Based on the Company’s
2018 performance, the overall economic climate, and industry trends, the
Company is outlining its 2019 financial outlook as follows:

  • Net sales are expected to be between $558 million to $570 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be between $66 million and $72 million

Kamphuis added, “As we approach mid-year, we are providing annual
financial guidance for 2019, which represents a strong improvement over
last year based on the acquisition of DMP and organic growth across our
business. As we look to the second half of the year, we have quickly
adapted to life as a public company and remain confident in our ability
to execute our strategy and partner with our customers to provide
meaningful value to their operations.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This
press release contains financial information calculated in a manner
other than in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting
principles (“GAAP”).

The non-GAAP measures used in this press release are EBITDA, EBITDA
Margin, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin.

EBITDA represents net income before interest expense, provision
(benefit) for income taxes, depreciation, and amortization. EBITDA
Margin represents EBITDA as a percentage of net sales for each period.
Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA before transaction fees incurred in
connection with the DMP acquisition and our initial public offering, the
loss on debt extinguishment relating to our December 2018 credit
agreement, and non-cash purchase accounting charges including costs
recognized on the step-up of acquired inventory and contingent
consideration fair value adjustments. Adjusted EBITDA Margin represents
Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net sales for each period. These
metrics are supplemental measures of our operating performance that are
neither required by, nor presented in accordance with, GAAP. These
measures should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any
other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP as an
indicator of our operating performance. We present Adjusted EBITDA and
Adjusted EBITDA Margin as management uses these measures as key
performance indicators, and we believe they are measures frequently used
by securities analysts, investors and other parties to evaluate
companies in our industry. These measures have limitations as analytical
tools and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for
analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.

Our calculation of EBITDA, EBITDA Margin, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted
EBITDA Margin may not be comparable to the similarly named measures
reported by other companies. Potential differences between our measures
of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA compared to other similar companies’
measures of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may include differences in
capital structure and tax positions.

Please reference our reconciliation of net income, the most directly
comparable measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, to EBITDA and
Adjusted EBITDA, and the calculation of EBITDA Margin and Adjusted
EBITDA Margin included in this press release.
