  • Adjusted EBITDA for the Successor of $61 million and for the Predecessor of $113 million for 2016, is within latest full year guidance of $170 to $175 million provided in August.

  • Fiscal year gross profit margin for the Successor of 10% and for the Predecessor of 12% for 2016 improved 90 bps from last year Predecessor gross profit margin of 10%. Fiscal year Adjusted Gross Profit margin improved 130 bps.
  • Fiscal year 2016 cash flow generated from continued operations of $73 million, which includes $40 million of cash outflow associated with transaction expenses.

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Dec. 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nexeo Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:NXEO) (the "Company" or "Nexeo Solutions"), today announced its consolidated financial results for the three months and fiscal year ended September 30, 2016.

"I am pleased our EBITDA performance was well within the range of our latest forecast driven by our focus on execution and operating efficiencies, which also resulted in expansion of our EBITDA margin and strong operating cash flow," said David Bradley, President and Chief Executive Officer of Nexeo Solutions. Mr. Bradley continued, "After a year of transition, including taking the company to the public markets, we are focused on using our industry-leading platform to drive profitable growth."

As a result of the previously announced business combination that was completed on June 9, 2016, the Company's financial information is required to be separately reported. References to "Successor" relate to the operating activities of Nexeo Solutions Holdings, LLC as of and subsequent to June 9, 2016 combined with the operating results of WL Ross Holding Corp. for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2016, while references to "Predecessor" relate to the operating activities of Nexeo Solutions Holdings, LLC prior to and through June 8, 2016.

The Company reported sales and operating revenues of $851.4 million for the Successor for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and $929.8 million for the Predecessor for the three months ended September 30, 2015.  The decrease of $78.4 million, or 8.4%, compared to prior year, is primarily attributed to the chemicals segment which had lower average selling prices and lower sales volumes in chemical manufacturing, energy and industrial manufacturing end markets, driven by weaker industrial demand during the quarter.

Gross profit was $89.6 million for the Successor for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and was $105.5 million for the Predecessor for the three months ended September 30, 2015.  Included in the gross profit for the Successor were charges totaling $8.6 million relating to the step up in inventory and additional depreciation expense from the purchase accounting adjustments in connection with the business combination.  The primary driver behind the decline in gross profit was the decline in sales volumes resulting from weaker industrial demand.  Purchase accounting adjustments recorded in the three months ended September 30, 2016 for the Successor are preliminary and changes stemming from the completion of fair value assessments in future periods could be material.

Net income was $8.7 million for the Successor for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and $9.7 million for the Predecessor in the three months ended September 30, 2015.  Adjusted EBITDA was $46.4 million for the Successor for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and $54.4 million for the Predecessor for the three months ended September 30, 2015.  For a description of Adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation to its most comparable GAAP measure, please read "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Basis of Presentation

As a result of the business combination, the Company was identified as the acquirer for accounting purposes, and the historical operations of Nexeo Solutions Holdings, LLC and its subsidiaries was deemed to be the accounting predecessor.  The business combination was accounted for using the acquisition method of accounting and the Successor financial statements reflect a new basis of accounting for the assets and liabilities of the acquired company that is based on the fair value of net assets acquired and liabilities assumed.  As a result of the application of the acquisition method of accounting, the condensed consolidated financial statements for the Predecessor period and for the Successor period are presented on a different basis and are, therefore, not directly comparable without certain adjustments.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company’s management believes that certain financial measures that do not comply with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP") provide relevant and meaningful information concerning the ongoing operating results of the Company and can facilitate comparisons across periods.  Certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted Gross Profit, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are used from time to time herein but should not be viewed as a substitute for GAAP measures of performance. Further, these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from similarly titled measures presented by other companies.  Moreover, certain non-GAAP financial measures as presented for financial reporting purposes herein may differ from similarly titled measures in the applicable covenants in our lender agreements.

The Company evaluates performance on the basis of Adjusted EBITDA, which it defines as its consolidated net income (loss), plus the sum of interest expense, net of interest income, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation, amortization, other operating expenses, net (which primarily consist of acquisition and integration-related expenses, employee stock-based compensation expense, impairment charges, gains and losses on foreign currency transactions and other unusual or non-recurring expenses), loss on extinguishment of debt, debt refinancing costs and other non-operating activity. The Company has included Adjusted Gross Profit, which it defines as gross profit plus the expense relating to the step up in inventory value and additional depreciation expense from the step up in fixed assets from the business combination. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Gross Profit are indicative of the Company’s operating performance and that they are used by investors and analysts to evaluate companies with similar capital structures.  The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Gross Profit are important indicators of operating performance because:

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes the effects of income taxes, as well as the effects of financing and investing activities by eliminating the effects of interest, depreciation and amortization;
  • the Company uses Adjusted EBITDA in setting performance incentive targets;
  • the Company considers gains (losses) on the acquisition, disposal and impairment of assets as resulting from investing decisions rather than ongoing operations; and
  • other significant one-time items, while periodically affecting the Company's results, may vary significantly from period to period and have a disproportionate effect in a given period, which affects comparability of its results.

A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Net Income (Loss) Attributable to Nexeo Solutions, Inc. and Subsidiaries, the most comparable GAAP measure, and a reconciliation of Adjusted Gross Profit to gross profit, the most comparable GAAP measure, are included at the end of this release.
