Business Wire

LIVERMORE, Calif. -- February 21, 2013

McGrath RentCorp (NASDAQ: MGRC) (the “Company”), a diversified business to
business rental company, today announced revenues for the quarter ended
December 31, 2012 of $102.0 million, an increase of 20%, compared to $85.2
million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The Company reported net income of
$11.9 million, or $0.47 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2012,
compared to net income of $13.2 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, in the
fourth quarter of 2011.

Total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 were $364.1 million,
compared to $342.7 million in 2011. Rental revenues increased 6% to $248.4
million in 2012 compared to $234.9 million in 2011. Net income for the year
ended December 31, 2012 decreased 10% to $44.8 million, compared to net income
of $49.6 million in the prior year. Diluted earnings per share decreased 11%
to $1.78 in 2012 from $2.00 in 2011.

The Company also announced that the board of directors declared a quarterly
cash dividend of $0.24 per share for the quarter ending March 31, 2013, an
increase of 2% over the prior year period. On an annualized basis, the 2013
dividend represents a 3.3% yield, based on the February 20, 2013 closing stock
price. The cash dividend will be payable on April 30, 2013 to all shareholders
of record on April 16, 2013.

Dennis Kakures, President and CEO of McGrath RentCorp, made the following
comments regarding these results and future expectations:

“Although Company-wide rental revenues increased by 4% from a year ago, we had
an 11% decrease in EPS for the quarter. This is primarily the result of lower
rental revenues for Adler relative to its current cost structure. While Adler
rental revenues grew over last year’s fourth quarter by approximately 6%, its
income from operations declined by approximately 39%. Over the past year we
have executed on ramping our tank rental business’s national footprint to
support higher rental revenue and earnings levels in the years ahead. These
costs are primarily related to filling management, sales, office and inventory
center positions, facilities and winch / roll-off tractor infrastructure. This
is all by design. Adler’s profitability was also impacted negatively during
the quarter by $1.3 million higher bad debt write-offs from a year ago.
Finally, we also experienced $0.7 million higher expenses during the quarter
from a year ago in moving underutilized equipment from the dry gas Marcellus
region to other Adler geographies in need of equipment. We have now completed
the great majority of these interregional asset movements and we anticipate
this expense category will be materially lower in 2013. Adler’s average rental
equipment utilization for the fourth quarter 2012 stood at 69.9% compared to
86.8% a year ago, and 68.9% in the third quarter 2012. Our percentage of
overall rental revenue derived from E&P gas and oil fracking declined from a
high of approximately 35% in 2011, to 15% in the fourth quarter of 2012, and
at the same time rental revenues grew by 6%. We have a great tank rental
business, but not without some growing pains. What’s most important is that
Adler is making very good headway in establishing its brand name, high quality
products and exceptional customer experiences over an increasingly larger
geography and customer base, quarter after quarter.

TRS-RenTelco, our electronic test equipment division, rental revenues for the
quarter increased by $1.5 million, or 6% to $26.8 million from a year ago.
Divisional income from operations increased by 18% from the fourth quarter of
2011. The significantly higher percentage increase in profitability as
compared to rental revenues was chiefly related to lower SG&A, laboratory and
equipment depreciation expenses all as a percentage of rental revenues from a
year ago. Our results for TRS-RenTelco continue to reflect its discipline in
strategic focus, strong brand following, operational efficiencies and an
exceptionally talented and tenured work force.

Modular division rental revenues for the quarter were relatively flat at $20.1
million compared to $20.3 million a year ago, and $20.0 million from the third
quarter 2012. Rental revenues grew by 9% quarter over quarter in our markets
outside of California and declined by 9% within the state. Modular rental
revenues outside of California now represent approximately 47% of total
modular rental revenues. First month’s rental bookings for the modular
division increased 26% from a year ago with bookings outside of California
increasing 89% and declining by 15% within the state. Although our California
modular results continue to be depressed due to macroeconomic headwinds, there
are a number of positive indicators going forward. These bright spots include
the successful November 2012 personal income and sales taxes ballot initiative
and its anticipated impact on reversing public education austerity; a December
2012 statewide unemployment rate of 9.8% down from a Great Recession high of
12.6%; scarce inventory of existing homes for sale in some regions as market
prices begin to increase; and a marked pick-up in both non-residential and
residential construction.

Modular division quarter over quarter income from operations decreased by
approximately 8% to $5.6 million from $6.1 million in 2011; however, modular
division gross profit was up slightly to $14.4 million compared to $14.2
million a year ago, and from $13.2 million in the third quarter of 2012.
First, the higher percentage reduction in income from operations relative to
flat rental revenues for the quarter is primarily due to an increase in bad
debt expense, and secondarily to increased SG&A costs in our portable storage
business. The increase in gross profit for the fourth quarter over the third
quarter 2012 relates chiefly to lower inventory center costs incurred.
Finally, average utilization for the fourth quarter 2012 was 66.8%, down
slightly from 67.1% a year ago, however, up from 66.2% in the third quarter
2012.

Our portable storage business continued to make good progress during the
quarter in building its customer following, increasing booking levels and
growing rental revenues. The business achieved both its full year rental
revenue and profitability goals for 2012. Turning the corner into 2013, our
portable storage business has strong momentum and we are excited about its
long-term prospects in becoming a meaningfully sized business and a material
contributor to McGrath RentCorp’s earnings.

In 2012, we added a net $74 million in original cost of rental assets. These
rental products were primarily for the growth of Adler Tank Rentals, and for
our test equipment and portable storage businesses. During the year we also
paid out $23 million in shareholder dividends. Finally, we invested $14
million in property, plant and equipment expenditures, primarily for the
growth of Adler Tank Rentals; yet, our year ending notes payable only rose by
approximately $5 million, and we carried a 1.91 to 1 ratio of funded debt
(notes payable) to last twelve months actual adjusted EBITDA . Strong cash
flows and a low-leveraged balance sheet matter greatly towards the financial
strength, opportunity nimbleness, and overall shareholder returns of McGrath
RentCorp.”

All comparisons presented below are for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 to
the quarter ended December 31, 2011 unless otherwise indicated.

MOBILE MODULAR

For the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company’s Mobile Modular division reported
an 8% decrease in income from operations to $5.6 million. Rental revenues
decreased 1% to $20.1 million and other direct costs increased 16% to $5.4
million, which resulted in a decrease in gross profit on rental revenues of 8%
to $11.2 million. Sales revenues increased 12% to $4.1 million, with gross
profit on sales revenues increasing 13% to $1.0 million, primarily due to
higher new and used equipment sales revenues in the fourth quarter of 2012.
Selling and administrative expenses increased 8% to $8.7 million primarily as
a result of higher bad debt expense and higher salary and benefit costs,
primarily related to the expansion of our Portable Storage growth initiative.

TRS-RENTELCO

For the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company’s TRS-RenTelco division reported
an 18% increase in income from operations to $10.1 million. Rental revenues
increased 6% to $26.8 million. The increase in rental revenues together with a
3% decrease in other direct costs to $3.3 million, partly offset by a 4%
increase in depreciation expense to $9.9 million, resulted in an increase in
gross profit on rental revenues of 10% to $13.7 million. Sales revenues
increased 42% to $10.1 million with gross profit on sales flat at $2.8
million, due to lower margins on used equipment sales revenues in the fourth
quarter of 2012, which included $3.7 million in proceeds from the sale of the
TRS-Environmental product line at a loss of $0.4 million. Selling and
administrative expenses decreased 3% to $6.8 million, primarily due to
decreased salary and benefit costs.

ADLER TANKS

For the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company’s Adler Tanks division reported a
39% decrease in income from operations to $5.9 million. Rental revenues
increased 6% to $18.2 million and other direct costs more than doubled to $3.0
million, which resulted in a decrease in gross profit on rental revenues of
11% to $11.9 million. Rental related services revenues increased $1.2 million
to $5.0 million, with gross profit on rental related services revenues
decreasing $0.6 million to $0.6 million. Selling and administrative expenses
increased 35% to $6.8 million, primarily due to higher bad debt expenses and
higher personnel and benefit costs.

OTHER HIGHLIGHTS

  *Debt decreased $12.2 million during the quarter to $302.0 million, with
    the Company’s funded debt (notes payable) to equity ratio decreasing from
    0.88 to 1 at September 30, 2012 to 0.83 to 1 at December 31, 2012. As of
    December 31, 2012, the Company had capacity to borrow an additional $228.0
    million under its lines of credit.
  *Dividend rate increased 2% to $0.235 per share for the fourth quarter 2012
    compared to the fourth quarter 2011. On an annualized basis, this dividend
    represents a 3.2% yield on the February 20, 2013 close price of $29.23.
  *Adjusted EBITDA decreased 4% to $40.6 million for the fourth quarter of
    2012. At December 31, 2012, the Company’s ratio of funded debt to the last
    twelve months actual Adjusted EBITDA was 1.91 to 1 compared to 1.96 to 1
    at September 30, 2012. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income before
    interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation, amortization
    and non-cash stock-based compensation. A reconciliation of net income to
    Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net cash provided by operating
    activities can be found at the end of this release.

FINANCIAL GUIDANCE

The Company expects 2013 full-year earnings per share to be in a range of
$1.85 to $1.95 per diluted share.

For the full-year 2013, the Company expects 4% to 7% growth in rental
operations revenues over 2012. Sales revenue is expected to be approximately
10% lower than 2012, but gross profit from sales is expected to be comparable
to 2012. Rental equipment depreciation expense is expected to increase to
between $67 and $69 million, driven by rental fleet growth. Selling and
administrative costs are expected to increase to between $89 and $91 million
to support business growth, and continued investment in Adler Tanks and our
portable storage initiative. Full year interest expense is expected to be
approximately $9 million. The Company expects the 2013 effective tax rate to
be 39.2% and the diluted share count to increase to between 25.3 and 25.7
million shares. These forward-looking statements reflect McGrath RentCorp’s
expectations as of February 21, 2013. Actual 2013 full-year earnings per share
results may be materially different and affected by many factors, including
those factors outlined in the “forward-looking statements” paragraph at the
end of this press release.

Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP
measures

To supplement the Company’s financial data presented on a basis consistent
with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America
(“GAAP”), the Company presents Adjusted EBITDA which is defined by the Company
as net income before interest expense, provision for income taxes,
depreciation, amortization, and non-cash stock-based compensation. The Company
presents Adjusted EBITDA as a financial measure as management believes it
provides useful information to investors regarding the Company’s liquidity and
financial condition and because management, as well as the Company’s lenders,
use this measure in evaluating the performance of the Company.

Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as a supplement to GAAP measures to further
evaluate the Company’s period-to-period operating performance, compliance with
financial covenants in the Company’s revolving lines of credit and senior
notes as well as the Company’s ability to meet future capital expenditure and
working capital requirements. Management believes the exclusion of non-cash
charges, including stock-based compensation, is useful in measuring the
Company’s cash available for operations and performance of the Company.
Because management finds Adjusted EBITDA useful, the Company believes its
investors will also find Adjusted EBITDA useful in evaluating the Company’s
performance.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for
net income, cash flows, or other consolidated income or cash flow data
prepared in accordance with GAAP or as a measure of the Company’s
profitability or liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA is not in accordance with or an
alternative for GAAP, and may be different from non−GAAP measures used by
other companies. Unlike EBITDA, which may be used by other companies or
investors, Adjusted EBITDA does not include stock-based compensation charges.
The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is of limited use in that it does
not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company’s results of
operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and does not accurately
reflect real cash flow. In addition, other companies may not use Adjusted
EBITDA or may use other non-GAAP measures, limiting the usefulness of Adjusted
EBITDA for purposes of comparison. The Company’s presentation of Adjusted
EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that the Company will not incur
expenses that are the same as or similar to the adjustments in this
presentation. Therefore, Adjusted EBITDA should only be used to evaluate the
Company’s results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP
measures. The Company compensates for the limitations of Adjusted EBITDA by
relying upon GAAP results to gain a complete picture of the Company’s
performance. Because Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure as
defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Company includes in the
tables below reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly
comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with
GAAP.
