PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., Nov. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dycom Industries, Inc. (NYSE: DY) announced today its results for the third quarter ended October 28, 2023. Contract revenues were $1.136 billion for the quarter ended October 28, 2023, compared to $1.042 billion in the year ago quarter. Contract revenues increased 4.6% on an organic basis after excluding $45.2 million of contract revenues from an acquired business that was not owned during the year ago quarter.

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA was $166.8 million, or 14.7% of contract revenues, for the quarter ended October 28, 2023, compared to $114.6 million, or 11.0% of contract revenues, in the year ago quarter. Net income was $83.7 million, or $2.82 per common share diluted, for the quarter ended October 28, 2023, compared to $54.0 million, or $1.80 per common share diluted, in the year ago quarter.

The impacts of a change order and the closeout of several projects increased contract revenues by $26.5 million for the quarter ended October 28, 2023. After the impacts of certain other costs, these items contributed $23.6 million to both gross margin and Adjusted EBITDA. As a result, reported gross margin was increased by 1.6% and reported Adjusted EBITDA was increased by 1.8%, both as a percentage of contract revenues. On an after-tax basis, these items contributed approximately $17.5 million to reported net income, or $0.59 per common share diluted.

Year-to-Date Highlights

Contract revenues were $3.223 billion for the nine months ended October 28, 2023, compared to $2.891 billion for the comparable year ago period. Contract revenues increased 9.9% on an organic basis after excluding $45.2 million of contract revenues from an acquired business that was not owned during the comparable year ago period.

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA was $411.1 million, or 12.8% of contract revenues, for the nine months ended October 28, 2023, compared to $283.0 million, or 9.8% of contract revenues, in the comparable year ago period.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). In the Company’s quarterly results releases, trend schedules, conference calls, slide presentations, and webcasts, it may use or discuss Non-GAAP financial measures, as defined by Regulation G of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company believes that the presentation of certain Non-GAAP financial measures in these materials provides information that is useful to investors because it allows for a more direct comparison of the Company’s performance for the period reported with the Company’s performance in prior periods. The Company cautions that Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the Company’s reported GAAP results. Management defines the Non-GAAP financial measures used as follows:

  • Non-GAAP Organic Contract Revenues - contract revenues from businesses that are included for the entire period in both the current and prior year periods, excluding contract revenues from storm restoration services. Non-GAAP Organic Contract Revenue change percentage is calculated as the change in Non-GAAP Organic Contract Revenues from the comparable prior year period divided by the comparable prior year period Non-GAAP Organic Contract Revenues. Management believes Non-GAAP Organic Contract Revenues is a helpful measure for comparing the Company’s revenue performance with prior periods.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA - net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, gain on sale of fixed assets, stock-based compensation expense, and certain non-recurring items. Management believes Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA is a helpful measure for comparing the Company’s operating performance with prior periods as well as with the performance of other companies with different capital structures or tax rates.
