VSE Corporation Announces Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2020 Results


VSE Corporation (NASDAQ: VSEC, "VSE", or the "Company"), a leading provider of aftermarket distribution and maintenance, repair and overhaul ("MRO") services for land, sea and air transportation assets for government and commercial markets, today announced results for the fourth quarter and full-year 2020.

FOURTH QUARTER 2020 RESULTS
(As compared to the Fourth Quarter 2019)

(1) Excludes the previously announced divestitures of Prime Turbines and CT Aerospace

For the three months ended December 31, 2020, the Company reported total revenue of $150.0 million, versus $195.3 million for the same period ended 2019. The Company reported adjusted net income of $5.8 million or $0.52 per adjusted diluted share, compared to $11.5 million or $1.04 per adjusted diluted share in the prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA declined to $17.3 million in fourth quarter 2020, versus $23.1 million for the same period in 2019. The Company reported negative free cash flow of $0.9 million during the fourth quarter 2020, which includes $10.7 million of inventory purchases supporting the recently announced new product distribution agreements in the Aviation segment.

Aviation segment revenue, excluding the previously divested Prime Turbines and CT Aerospace assets, declined 26.2% on a year-over-year basis in the fourth quarter 2020, as lower revenue passenger miles at major airline customers resulted in reduced commercial MRO activity. During the fourth quarter, Aviation segment revenue increased 6.5% when compared to the third quarter 2020, supported by a combination of market share gains within the parts distribution business, together with increased demand for parts and services from business and general aviation (B&GA) customers. Federal and Defense segment revenue declined 28.8% on a year-over-year basis in the fourth quarter 2020, primarily due to the completion of a DoD program during the first quarter 2020. Fleet segment revenue increased 0.7% on a year-over-year basis in the fourth quarter 2020, as growth in commercial fleet and e-commerce fulfillment offset a slight decline in U.S. Postal Service-related revenue.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2020, the Company reported total revenue of $661.7 million, versus $752.6 million in 2019. The Company reported adjusted net income of $29.1 million or $2.63 per adjusted diluted share, compared to $40.2 million or $3.64 per adjusted diluted share in the prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA declined to $75.2 million in 2020, versus $90.9 million for the same period in 2019. The Company generated $31.3 million of free cash flow in 2020, versus $8.4 million in 2019.

STRATEGY UPDATE

VSE continued to execute on a multi-year business transformation plan during the fourth quarter. The management team remains focused on accelerating the transformation with new business development initiatives and product and service line expansions, in conjunction with disciplined balance sheet management.

MANAGEMENT COMMENTARY

"In 2020, we successfully navigated pandemic-related disruptions to the global aviation market while continuing to execute on our multi-year business transformation plan," stated President and CEO John Cuomo. "Throughout the year, we won new business, grew our presence within both new and existing markets, expanded our product and service capabilities into higher-margin verticals, increased our contract bidding activity, divested non-core assets, reduced overhead costs to align with demand conditions, and built a leadership team capable of driving operational excellence at every level of the organization. We are a leaner, more competitive business today than we were entering 2020, laying the foundation for profitable growth in 2021."

"During the fourth quarter, our Aviation segment reported a second consecutive quarter of sequential revenue growth, driven by a combination of continued share gains and improved demand within the domestic narrow-body aircraft and B&GA markets," continued Cuomo. "Within our Fleet segment, increased e-commerce fulfillment orders and strong demand from ?last-mile' commercial truck fleets contributed to improved year-over-year revenue growth. Although Federal and Defense segment revenue declined on a year-over-year basis, segment Adjusted EBITDA improved due to a more favorable contract mix."

"This week, in an all-cash transaction, we acquired HAECO Special Services, a leading provider of fully integrated MRO support solutions for military and government aircraft. This transaction is immediately accretive, and positions us to capitalize on higher-margin technical service opportunities within our Federal and Defense Services segment," continued Cuomo. "We continue to evaluate similar bolt-on acquisitions that accelerate new customer or capability expansion across each of our operating segments."

"During 2021, we intend to move forward with the next phase of our business transformation plan. This year, our focus turns toward expanding our product and service offerings, continuing to capture share gains within underserved markets, executing inorganic growth opportunities, and accelerating our cultural transformation for our customers and employees," concluded Cuomo.

"Given the net proceeds from our recently completed follow-on equity offering and the existing availability under our credit facilities, VSE is well-capitalized to support growth in 2021," stated Stephen Griffin, CFO of VSE Corporation. "This year, our primary capital allocation priorities include working capital investments associated with new distribution agreement wins and investments in additional bolt-on acquisitions. While we expect to allocate operating cash flow toward discretionary growth investments during the first half of 2021, debt reduction remains a key priority, consistent with our disciplined approach to long-term balance sheet management."

SEGMENT RESULTS

AVIATION
Distribution & MRO Services

VSE's Aviation segment provides aftermarket MRO and distribution services to commercial, cargo, business and general aviation, military/defense and rotorcraft customers globally. Core services include parts distribution, component and engine accessory MRO services, rotable exchange and supply chain services.

Aviation segment revenue, less contributions from divested Prime Turbines and CT Aerospace businesses, decreased 26.2% year-over-year to $38.6 million in the fourth quarter 2020. The year-over-year revenue decline was attributable to the adverse impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on commercial air traffic, resulting in lower customer demand. On a sequential basis, Aviation segment revenue increased 6.5%, when compared to the third quarter 2020. The Aviation segment recorded an operating loss of $0.8 million in the fourth quarter, versus operating income of $3.1 million in the prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA decreased to $1.4 million in the fourth quarter 2020.

FLEET
Distribution & Fleet Services

VSE's Fleet segment provides parts, inventory management, e-commerce fulfillment, logistics, supply chain support and other services for commercial aftermarket medium- and heavy-duty truck customers and for the United States Postal Service (USPS) and the United States Department of Defense (DoD). Core services include parts distribution, sourcing, IT solutions, customized fleet logistics, warehousing, kitting, just-in-time supply chain management, alternative product sourcing, engineering and technical support.

Fleet segment revenue increased 0.7% year-over-year to $54.0 million in the fourth quarter 2020. Revenues from commercial customers increased approximately $5.8 million or 82.5%, driven by growth in commercial fleet demand and the e-commerce fulfillment business. Operating income declined 17.2% year-over-year to $6.2 million in the fourth quarter 2020 due to a less favorable sales mix in the period and investment in the business to support continued commercial growth. VSE Fleet segment Adjusted EBITDA declined 16.1% year-over-year in the fourth quarter to $8.5 million.

FEDERAL & DEFENSE
Logistics & Sustainment Services

VSE's Federal and Defense segment provides aftermarket MRO and logistics services to improve operational readiness and to extend the life cycle of military vehicles, ships and aircraft for the U.S. Armed Forces, federal agencies and international defense customers. Core services include base operations support, procurement, supply chain management, vehicle, maritime and aircraft sustainment services, IT services and energy consulting.

Federal and Defense segment revenue declined 28.8% year-over-year to $57.4 million in the fourth quarter 2020, primarily due to the expiration of DoD contracts during the first and third quarters of 2020. Operating income increased 52.0% year-over-year to $7.9 million in the fourth quarter 2020, while Adjusted EBITDA increased 44.4% year-over-year to $8.5 million in the period, due to a more favorable contract mix.

Federal and Defense segment fourth quarter bookings increased 97.4% year-over-year to $75 million. Funded backlog declined 14.1% year-over-year to $183 million. The decline in funded backlog was attributable to the expiration of contracts in the first and third quarters of 2020. The Company continues to focus on revitalizing this business with an emphasis on higher margin growth based on increased technical competencies.

FINANCIAL RESOURCES AND LIQUIDITY

The Company generated $31.3 million of free cash flow in 2020, versus $8.4 million in 2019. As of December 31, 2020, the Company had $175.5 million in cash and unused commitment availability under its $350 million revolving credit facility maturing in 2023. The Company's existing credit facility includes a $100 million accordion provision, subject to customary lender commitment approvals.

On January 29, 2021, the company priced a previously announced underwritten public offering of common stock that resulted in approximately $52 million net proceeds to the company. VSE expects to use the net proceeds from this offering for general corporate purposes, which may include among other things, financing strategic acquisitions, working capital requirements for new program launches, and repaying outstanding borrowings under its revolving credit facility.

The non-GAAP Financial Information set forth in this document is not calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") under SEC Regulation G. We consider Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EPS (Diluted), EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, trailing-twelve months Adjusted EBITDA, net debt and free cash flow as non-GAAP financial measures and important indicators of performance and useful metrics for management and investors to evaluate our business' ongoing operating performance on a consistent basis across reporting periods. These non-GAAP financial measures, however, should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted Net Income represents Net Income adjusted for executive succession costs, 1st Choice Aerospace acquisition-related costs including any earn-out adjustments, facility closures, loss on sale of a business entity and certain assets, gain on sale of property, and related tax impact. Adjusted EPS (Diluted) is computed by dividing net income, adjusted for the discrete items as identified above and the related tax impacts, by the diluted weighted average number of common shares outstanding. EBITDA represents net income before interest expense, income taxes, amortization of intangible assets and depreciation and other amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA (as defined above) adjusted for discrete items as identified above, and trailing-twelve months Adjusted EBITDA is defined as Adjusted EBITDA for the most recent twelve (12) month period ending December 31, 2020. Net debt is defined as total debt less cash and cash equivalents. Free cash flow represents operating cash flow less capital expenditures.
