Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc. Key Developments

Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc. Announces Earnings Results for the Fiscal Second Quarter and Six Months Ended September 30, 2016; Provides Free Cash Flow Guidance for the Second Half of Fiscal 2017 and Revises Earnings Guidance for the Fiscal Year 2017

Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc. announced earnings results for the fiscal second quarter and six months ended September 30, 2016. For the quarter, net sales decreased $22.5 million, or 5.9%, to $360.8 million compared to $383.3 million in the prior fiscal second quarter. The decrease in Net Sales were primarily due to a weaker than anticipated domestic construction market and continued softness in the domestic agriculture market and Mexico. The company reported adjusted EBITDA (Non-GAAP) of $65.6 million compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $63.7 million in the prior fiscal second quarter, an increase of 2.9%. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was largely attributed to the same factors mentioned above. Adjusted earnings per fully converted share (Non-GAAP) was $0.35 per share based on weighted average fully converted shares of 73.4 million, improved from an adjusted earnings per fully converted share of $0.21 per share for the prior fiscal second quarter. For the fiscal first half 2017, the company recorded net cash provided by operating activities of $45.6 million compared to $16.9 million for the same period last year. Net debt (total debt and capital lease obligations net of cash) was $420.2 million as of September 30, 2016, a decrease of $75.0 million from September 30, 2015. The company provided free cash flow guidance for the second half of fiscal 2017 and revised earnings guidance for the fiscal year 2017. The company expects free cash flow generation should remain strong in the second half of fiscal 2017, which will provide additional avenues to create shareholder value including investing in business, making selective acquisitions and returning cash to shareholders. Based on current visibility, backlog of existing orders and business trends, the company has revised its net sales and adjusted EBITDA targets for fiscal 2017. Net sales are now expected to be in the range of $1.225 billion to $1.250 billion with adjusted EBITDA between $190 and $210 million for fiscal year 2017. The revised guidance is predicated on the belief that end market performance will be slightly lower than previously expected for fiscal year 2017.
