Granite Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2016 Results

Freitag, 17.02.2017 12:55



WATSONVILLE, Calif. --(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Granite Construction Incorporated (NYSE:GVA) today reported net income of $57.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2016 compared with net income of $60.5 million in the prior year. Diluted earnings per share (EPS) for the year was $1.42 compared to $1.52 per share in 2015.

Granite reported net income of $16.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2016, compared with net income of $28.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. Diluted EPS in the quarter was $0.40 compared to $0.72 per share in the prior-year period.

“Momentum to rebuild America's infrastructure is growing, an encouraging sign for our Company, our industry, and our country. Today, Granite's business stands in its best position in many years,” said James H. Roberts, President and Chief Executive Officer of Granite Construction Incorporated. “Despite fourth quarter results that were negatively impacted by particular weakness in the Large Project Construction segment, overall operational performance remained strong. The Construction segment remains the largest, most profitable portion of our business, producing near-record gross margins and a record segment backlog level in 2016.

“Today, public-funding trends are poised to improve. So as the momentum across the country grows, our outlook continues to improve. We continue to challenge our leaders to take their teams to even higher levels of expectation and success. We are confident in the investments we are making in our business, beginning with our people. Granite employees' focus, drive, and execution produced solid 2016 results and record Company year-end backlog of nearly $3.5 billion, and it is expected to produce much-improved results, beginning in 2017,” Roberts said.

Fiscal Year 2016 Results

Total Company

  • Revenues for 2016 were $2.51 billion, up 6.1 percent from 2015.
  • Gross profit increased 0.5 percent year-over-year to $301.4 million, driven by improved performance in the Construction segment.
  • Gross profit margin was 12.0 percent compared with 12.6 percent in 2015.
  • Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $219.3 million, compared with $203.8 million last year. The increase is attributable primarily to personnel-related costs, including increased business development and selling expenses.
  • Backlog ended at a year-end record $3.48 billion, up 19.8 percent from $2.91 billion in 2015.
  • 2016 EBITDA1 was $160.8 million, with resulting EBITDA margin of 6.4 percent.
  • $317.1 million in cash and marketable securities, as of December 31, 2016.

Construction

  • Construction revenue in 2016 was $1.37 billion, up 8.1 percent from $1.26 billion in 2015, driven by improved performance in certain Western markets supported by steady private, non-residential construction demand.
  • Gross profit margin increased nearly 50 basis points year-over-year to 15.3 percent, as improved safety, execution, and market diversification drove the year-over-year growth.
  • Construction backlog ended at a year-end record $1.03 billion, up 19.7 percent year-over-year.

Large Project Construction

  • Large Project Construction revenue increased 9.3 percent to $888.2 million from $812.7 million in 2015, as Granite teams advanced work on our coast-to-coast project portfolio.
  • Gross profit margin was 7.2 percent compared with 9.8 percent in 2015 primarily reflecting execution issues on certain projects nearing completion in 2017 and 2018, as well as the prolonged impact of time in resolving disputes with owners and designers.
  • Large project backlog totaled $2.45 billion, up 19.8 percent year-over-year, with the balance of 2016 bookings expected to provide profit improvement beginning in 2017.

Construction Materials

  • Overall 2016 materials consumption was nearly identical to 2015, with demand shifting to increased internal (Construction segment) use in 2016. As a result, Construction Materials revenue (external sales) decreased 11.6 percent to $261.2 million compared with $295.6 million last year.
  • Gross profit margin in 2016 was 10.7 percent, compared with 11.1 percent in 2015, as overall public-market demand remained flat. Although weather slowed production in the fourth quarter, bidding activity and pricing remained steady through the end of 2016, which resulted in growing committed volumes for 2017.

Fourth Quarter 2016 Results

Total Company

  • Revenues increased 5.8 percent to $666.7 million compared with $630.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2015.
  • Gross profit decreased 19.3 percent year-over-year to $81.3 million, driven primarily by the underperformance of certain large projects, as well as by weather impacts across much of the West in December.
  • Gross profit margin was 12.2 percent compared with 16.0 percent in 2015.
  • SG&A expenses decreased $0.7 million from 2015, to $59.3 million.

Construction

  • Construction segment revenue increased 5.3 percent to $359.7 million, compared with $341.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. While impacted by wet weather in the West, revenue growth was driven by steady private, non-residential demand and continued diversification.
  • Gross profit margin, down from nearly 20 percent last year, remained a healthy 17.2 percent, with weather headwinds largely countered by improved safety and solid execution.

Large Project Construction

  • Large Project Construction segment revenue increased 10.6 percent to $246.1 million, compared with $222.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2015, based on execution on our broad project portfolio.
  • Gross profit margin was 5.5 percent, down from 11.6 percent last year, reflecting significant underperformance at three projects aligned to the prolonged impact of time in resolving disputes with owners and designers.

Construction Materials

  • Construction Materials revenue decreased 8.0 percent to $60.9 million, compared with $66.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2015, driven primarily by a shift to greater internal consumption of materials coupled with weather impacts in December pushing sales into 2017.
  • Gross profit margin for the quarter was 10.0 percent, compared with 11.0 percent in 2015. Operational performance remains solid, as we target continued improvement in pricing and production efficiency.

Outlook

“Last November, voters across the country approved more than $200 billion of long-term infrastructure investment in the form of local measures, with the majority of this in California and Washington State,” Roberts continued. “In California, state officials continue to make progress toward legislation on a long-term transportation bill. We are maintaining our focus on the Governor and California legislators to deliver much overdue investment beginning in 2017,” Roberts said.

“Still, much of the focus remains at the federal level where the FAST Act, the long-term highway bill passed by Congress in December 2015, has yet to provide any incremental spending. Congress continues to fund government spending by continuing resolution. We still believe the FAST Act is critical for planning at state and local levels. However, until federal spending increases, the 2017 outlook for public-market growth is limited.

“Our broad asset base and coast-to-coast project portfolio, coupled with ongoing efficiency investment in Continuous Improvement has prepared us well. Granite teams are ready to deliver both on the President's commitment to rebuilding our country's infrastructure, as well as on solid growth in our markets across the country. These investments are creating efficiencies and leverage that, combined with year-end record backlog of $3.5 billion, will provide Granite teams with an opportunity to grow at a rate faster than we have seen in recent years,” Roberts said.

The Company’s current expectations for 2017 are:

  • Low-double digit consolidated revenue growth
  • Consolidated EBITDA margin1 of 6.5% to 7.5%
