Graham Hood, Chief Executive Officer of Neff Corporation, commented, “2014 proved to be an exciting year for the Neff team that included our successful initial public offering (the "IPO") in November 2014. We built solid momentum throughout 2014 and expect positive trends to continue in 2015.

Rental Fleet

At December 31, 2014 the OEC of the Company’s rental fleet was $704.3 million, up 14.9% when compared to 2013. The average age of the rental fleet was 45 months at December 31, 2014, compared to 46 months at December 31, 2013. Time utilization, which we define as the daily average OEC of equipment on rent, divided by the OEC of all equipment in the rental fleet during the relevant period, was 69.7%, down 120 basis points when compared with 2013. The weighted average growth of our rental rates which we calculate as the change in weighted average rental rate over the applicable period, was 6.6% in 2014 versus 6.4% in 2013.

  • Total revenue is forecast to be in the range of $390 million to $410 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is forecast to be in a range of $200 million to $210 million.
  • Year-over-year rental rate increase is expected to be approximately 4.5%.
  • Time utilization is forecast to be approximately 69%.
  • Net capital expenditures are expected to be in the range of $125 million to $135 million.

Mr. Hood concluded, "We have made significant investments in our business over the past couple of years as we strive to build a world-class equipment rental company and create shareholder value. We continue to believe we are in the early stages of a multiyear expansion for our industry and we are especially encouraged by the opportunity for our earthmoving fleet to gain share as more customers are making the decision to rent versus own. While we expect to see some slow-down in the 13% of our business that is directly focused on oil and gas activities, we believe that our diverse end-markets and focus on high growth geographies will offset the oil and gas slow down and enable us to execute and deliver another year of solid growth in 2015."

Fleet Size

The size of the rental fleet was $704.3 million of OEC at December 31, 2014, compared to $613.1 million at December 31, 2013.

Successful IPO

The Company completed its IPO of 10,476,190 shares of Class A common stock on November 26, 2014 at a price of $15.00 per share, raising net proceeds of $146.1 million, net of underwriting discounts and commissions. Of the $146.1 million received, $40.0 million was used to repay borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility, $96.0 million was used to prepay a portion of the outstanding principal amount of the Second Lien Loan, $2.6 million was used to pay prepayment premiums and $7.5 million was used to pay accrued interest and other expenses related to the IPO.

Basis of Presentation

Subsequent to the IPO, Neff Corporation began to operate and control all of the business affairs of Neff Holdings LLC. As a result, Neff Corporation began to consolidate Neff Holdings LLC on November 26, 2014, and such consolidation has been reflected for all periods presented in the following tables. Unless otherwise noted, the results presented in this press release are consolidated and exclude adjustments attributable to the non-controlling interest.

These historical results do not purport to reflect what the results of operations of Neff Corporation would have been had the IPO and related reorganization and other transactions occurred prior to such periods. For example, these historical results do not reflect the portion of Neff Corporation's income attributable to the non-controlling interest or the provision for corporate income taxes on the income attributable to Neff Corporation that we expect to record with respect to future periods.

Return on Invested Capital ("ROIC")

Return on invested capital was 13% for the year ended December 31, 2014, an increase of 300 basis points from the year ended December 31, 2013. The company’s ROIC metric uses after-tax operating income for the trailing 12 months divided by average stockholders’ equity (deficit) and debt, net of average cash. To mitigate the volatility related to fluctuations in the company’s tax rate from period to period, the federal statutory tax rate of 35% is used to calculate after-tax operating income.

Non-US GAAP Measures and Key Performance Measures

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted diluted earnings per share are non-US GAAP financial measures as defined under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). EBITDA represents the sum of net income, interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation of rental equipment, other depreciation and amortization and amortization of debt issue costs. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA further adjusted to give effect to non-cash and other items that we do not consider to be indicative of our ongoing operations. The company believes that: (i) EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA provide useful information about operating performance and period-over-period growth; and (ii) adjusted EPS provides useful information concerning future profitability. However, none of these measures should be considered as alternatives to net income, cash flows from operating activities or earnings per share under US GAAP as indicators of operating performance or liquidity.

OEC and rental rate are two of the key performance measures we use in evaluating our business and results of operations.

We present OEC, defined as the first cost of acquiring the equipment, or in the case of used equipment purchases and rental splits, an estimate of the first cost that would have been paid to acquire the equipment if it had been purchased new in its year of manufacture, as the daily average OEC of equipment on rent, divided by the OEC of all equipment in the rental fleet during the relevant period.

We define rental rates as the rates charged to our customers on rental contracts that typically are for a daily, weekly or monthly term. Rental rates change over time based on a combination of pricing, the mix of equipment on rent and the mix of rental terms with customers. Period over period changes in rental rates are calculated on a weighted average with the weighting based on prior period revenue mix.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements contained in this press release that do not relate to matters of historical facts should be considered forward-looking statements, including statements regarding our expectations regarding positive trends in 2015; our growing customer demand; our 2015 outlook, including without limitation, statements regarding our forecasted revenue and Adjusted EBITDA and our expected rental rates, time utilization and net capital expenditures; our expectations regarding industry expansion, our earth-moving fleet and customer rental rates; and expectations regarding slowdown in oil and gas exploration and the Company’s ability to offset such slowdown. We use words such as "could," "may," "will," "expect," "believe," "continue," "anticipate," "estimate," "intend," "project" and other similar expressions to identify some but not all forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements involve estimates and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements.

The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are based on assumptions that we have made in light of our industry experience and our perceptions of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other important factors we believe are appropriate under the circumstances. As you read and consider this press release, you should understand that these statements are not guarantees of performance or results. They involve risks, uncertainties (many of which are beyond our control) and assumptions. Although we believe that these forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, you should be aware that many important factors could affect our actual operating and financial performance and cause our performance to differ materially from the performance anticipated in the forward-looking statements. We believe these important factors include, but are not limited to, the following: the fact that the Company’s revenues and operating results will fluctuate, which could affect the volatility of the trading of its Class A common stock; the highly cyclical nature of the equipment rental industry; decreases in construction or industrial activities and resulting decreases in the demand for the Company’s equipment or the rental rates or prices it can charge; competition in the equipment rental industry which could lead to a decrease in the Company’s market share or in rental rates and its ability to sell equipment at favorable prices; the Company’s substantial indebtedness and ability to generate cash to meet its debt service obligations; the Company’s need to obtain additional capital, which may not be available, to fund the capital outlays required for the success of its business, including those relating to purchasing equipment, opening new rental locations, making acquisitions and refinancing existing indebtedness; significantly higher maintenance costs in connection with increases in the weighted average age of the Company’s rental fleet; environmental and health and safety laws and regulations that may result in liabilities for the Company; termination of one or more of the Company’s relationships with any of its equipment manufacturers; residual value risk of the Company’s rental fleet upon disposition; the rising cost of new equipment and supplier constraints; trends in oil and gas prices and the impact on the level of exploration, development and production activity of certain of the Company’s customers and the demand for the Company’s services and products; disruptions in the Company’s information technology and customer relationship management systems; potential acquisitions and expansions into new markets; payments under our tax receivable agreement; and increased costs as a result of operating as a public company. These and other important factors described under the captions "Risk Factors" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" in the final prospectus relating to the Company's IPO included in the Company's registration statement on Form S-1 filed with the SEC and similar disclosures in subsequent reports filed with the SEC could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by the forward-looking statements made in this press release. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any of these assumptions prove incorrect, our actual operating and financial performance may vary in material respects from the performance projected in these forward-looking statements.

Further, any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made, and except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statement contained in this press release to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which it is made or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events or circumstances. New important factors that could cause our business not to develop as we expect emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them.

ADJUSTED DILUTED EARNINGS PER SHARE - US GAAP RECONCILIATION

 

We define “adjusted diluted earnings per share” as the sum of diluted earnings per share - US GAAP, as reported plus the impact of the following special item: loss on extinguishment of debt in connection with the IPO. Management believes that adjusted diluted earnings per share provides useful information concerning future profitability. However, adjusted diluted earnings per share is not a measure of financial performance under US GAAP.  Accordingly, adjusted diluted earnings per share should not be considered an alternative to diluted earnings per share - US GAAP. The table below provides a reconciliation between diluted earnings per share - US GAAP, as reported, and adjusted diluted earnings per share.

EBITDA AND ADJUSTED EBITDA - US GAAP RECONCILIATION

(in millions)

 

EBITDA is defined as net income plus interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation of rental equipment, other depreciation and amortization and amortization of debt issue costs. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA further adjusted to give effect to non-cash and other items that Management does not consider to be indicative of our ongoing operations. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of performance in accordance with US GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or operating cash flows determined in accordance with US GAAP.  Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of cash flow for management's discretionary use, as it excludes certain cash requirements such as interest payments, tax payments and debt service requirements. Management believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA in this press release are appropriate because securities analysts, investors and other interested parties use these non-US GAAP financial measures as important measures of assessing our operating performance across periods on a consistent basis. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under US GAAP. The table below provides a reconciliation between net income and EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA.
