SEACOR Holdings Announces Results for the Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2019

Seacor Holdings Press Release Oct 28 2019

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Oct. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SEACOR Holdings Inc. (NYSE:CKH) (the “Company”) today announced its results for the quarter ended September 30, 2019:

  • Net income attributable to stockholders was $6.4 million ($0.32 per diluted share) compared with $17.1 million ($0.88 per diluted share) for the quarter ended September 30, 2018. The prior year quarter included $5.5 million ($0.26 per diluted share) related to the amortization of previously deferred gains and net mark-to-market gains on marketable securities.
  • “Cash Earnings” were $27.7 million compared with $30.0 million for the same quarter last year. In the current quarter, "cash earnings" included $4.5 million for August and September's results from the acquisition of our partner's 49% ownership in SEA-Vista.
  • Operating income attributable to stockholders, was $12.9 million compared with $23.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2018. The prior year quarter benefited from the amortization of previously deferred gains of $5.3 million.

The Company uses the non-GAAP financial measures "Cash Earnings" and OIBDA in this release; a reconciliation to their closest U.S. GAAP measure is included in "Use of non-GAAP Financial Measures" in this release.

Charles Fabrikant, Executive Chairman, commented on the quarter's results as follows:

"The quarter’s disappointing results were primarily due to the extremely difficult conditions in the inland transportation and logistics services segment and a more typical level of demand for our emergency response services.

The third calendar quarter usually produces improved results in the inland sector compared with the second quarter, but this quarter the inland river system continued to suffer from the carryover effects of extreme flooding earlier in the year. Our inland group experienced curtailed demand for fleeting and terminal services, and the barge pool incurred higher costs. The U.S. trade dispute with China and competition from cheaper grain in South America were additional challenges. These challenges continue today. Corn export demand continues to be dismal with shipments approximately 60% and export sales approximately 45% below last year. Export sales are also lagging. Brazil, whose share of the soybean export market increased after the commencement of the trade dispute, continues to compete aggressively.

Witt-O’Brien’s higher activity level in the third quarter of last year reflected a multitude of early stage response and recovery task orders following the hurricanes of 2017. Witt O’Brien’s continues to support the long-term recovery efforts of public sector clients such as the U.S. Virgin Islands as well as expand into the private sector.

The overall operating results for the ocean sector in the current quarter were positive and in general compare favorably with the prior year, despite incurring a dry-docking this quarter and an accounting benefit in the prior year from the amortization of previously deferred gains. The operating discussion below provides more details."

Fabrikant continued, "The highlight of the quarter was the acquisition of our partner’s interest in Sea-Vista, strengthening our position in the Jones Act market and also adding substantial revenue backlog. As of September 30th, the contracted backlog in SEA-Vista was $237.7 million through 2026. (The acquisition also should reduce complexity in our financial statements, no doubt an added plus. We encourage you to review the tables provided in the release which include a reconciliation of cash earnings.)"

Operating Discussion

Ocean Transportation & Logistics Services - Operating income and OIBDA attributable to stockholders were $17.4 million and $26.5 million, in the current year quarter compared with $19.5 million and $27.6 million in the prior year quarter, respectively. Operating income and OIBDA attributable to stockholders in the prior year quarter benefited from the amortization of previously deferred gains of $4.5 million.

The operating results from harbor towing activities and SEACOR Island Lines improved meaningfully with a combined incremental contribution of $5.3 million and $5.1 million in operating income and OIBDA, respectively, as a consequence of increases in ship docking requirements in various ports and increased unit freight activity into the Bahamas. These increases were partially offset by lost revenue associated with 42 days of planned out-of-service time required for dry-docking one SEA-Vista vessel and the corresponding dry-docking expense. This quarter's results also reflected a reduction in the time charter rate for another SEA-Vista vessel in exchange for a multiyear extension of its charter. Operating results for the Company's military and commercial cargo activities, marketed under the Waterman brand, were also modestly lower in the current quarter.

Inland Transportation & Logistics Services - Operating income and OIBDA were $0.6 million and $6.2 million in the current year quarter compared with $4.3 million and $10.5 million in the prior year quarter, respectively. As previously detailed, the flooding throughout the inland waterways system and weak demand negatively impacted this year’s Inland’s results. Margins on freight operations suffered as weak freight rates were exacerbated by usually extended cycle times for trips and higher towing costs.

Witt O’Brien’s - Operating income and OIBDA were $2.1 million and $2.3 million in the current year quarter compared with $6.1 million and $6.6 million in the prior year quarter, respectively. As previously noted, the prior year had benefited from the initial activity surge that followed the late season hurricanes in 2017.

Capital Commitments - The Company’s capital commitments as of September 30, 2019 were $21.3 million and included the Company's interest in two foreign-flag rail ferries, two inland river towboats, other equipment and vessel and terminal improvements. Subsequent to September 30, 2019, the Company committed to purchase additional equipment for $0.3 million.

Liquidity and Debt - During the current year quarter, the Company repurchased $18.2 million in principal amount of its 3.0% Convertible Senior Notes for $18.1 million resulting in debt extinguishment losses of $0.8 million.

As of September 30, 2019, the Company’s balances of cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, restricted cash equivalents, marketable securities and construction reserve funds totaled $88.0 million. As of September 30, 2019, the Company had exited its position in Dorian LPG Ltd. Total outstanding debt was $317.8 million, including $25.0 million of outstanding borrowings under the Company's revolving credit facilities, which has subsequently been repaid. As of September 30, 2019, the Company had $200.0 million of borrowing capacity under its credit facilities.

Equity - For the quarter ended September 30, 2019, basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding were 19,322,423 and 20,738,919, respectively. As of September 30, 2019, the total shares outstanding were 20,179,218.

Use of non-GAAP Financial Measures

The information furnished in this release includes non-GAAP financial measures that differ from measures calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP, including OIBDA and Cash Earnings.

The Company defines OIBDA as operating income (loss) plus depreciation and amortization. The Company includes maintenance and repair costs, including major overhauls and regulatory dry-dockings, and gains or losses (or impairments) on asset dispositions in OIBDA. The Company defines Cash Earnings as OIBDA further adjusted to exclude the amortization of non-cash deferred gains and amounts attributable to its minority partner in SEA-Vista as well as the gain or loss associated with marking-to-market securities held for investment, accrued net cash expense associated with interest on debt obligations, and the Company’s estimate of cash taxes. Other companies may calculate OIBDA and Cash Earnings differently than the Company, which may limit their usefulness as comparative measures. In addition, each of these measures does not necessarily represent funds available for discretionary use and are not measures of the Company’s ability to fund its cash needs. OIBDA and Cash Earnings are each financial metrics used by management (i) as a supplemental internal measure for planning and forecasting overall expectations and for evaluating actual results against such expectations; (ii) as a criteria for annual incentive bonuses paid to Company officers and other shore-based employees; and (iii) to compare to the OIBDA and Cash Earnings of other companies when evaluating potential acquisitions. In addition, the Company believes Cash Earnings is meaningful to investors because it assists in evaluating the Company’s results of operations and net cash generated by business activities across previous and subsequent accounting periods and to better understand the long-term performance of the Company. The Company views OIBDA and Cash Earnings as measures of operating performance not liquidity.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The following tables reconcile these non-GAAP measures to their most closely comparable U.S. GAAP measures (amounts in thousands, except per share data).
