NV5 Announces First Quarter Results and Raises Guidance

HOLLYWOOD, Fla., May 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NV5 Global, Inc. (Nasdaq GS: NVEE) ("NV5" or the "Company"), a provider of technology, conformity assessment, consulting solutions, and software applications, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 30, 2024.

"NV5 delivered strong first quarter results in revenue and profitability, exceeding our budget and analyst consensus for revenue and growing cash flows from operations 73% versus the first quarter of 2023. The company is seeing tremendous revenue growth in services for artificial intelligence (AI) data centers, and we believe we have become a leader in infrastructure design and commissioning for the AI data center market, with customers coming to us for their international and domestic data center facilities.

Our accelerated organic growth initiative has resulted in 8% organic growth1 for the quarter. We have completed four acquisitions in 2024 to date, enhancing our Florida operations, structural and forensics engineering, geospatial DOT asset management, and engineering solutions for Middle East mega projects. The M&A pipeline is strong, and we anticipate completing additional acquisitions throughout 2024 to densify our existing platform and enhance the tech-enabled solutions that have become a cornerstone of NV5’s service offerings. We have exceeded our consolidated 2024 budget to date and are raising guidance for gross revenues and EPS," said Dickerson Wright, Executive Chairman of NV5. 

First Quarter 2024 Results

The Company's cash flows grew 73% over the same quarter last year as it generated $19.6 million of cash flows from operations. Gross revenues grew 16% to $213.3 million this quarter and gross profit increased 18% to $112.8 million. Organic growth was 8%1.

The Federal continuing resolution that impacted the fourth quarter of last year and much of the first quarter of this year is now behind us. As a result, we have raised 2024 guidance for revenue and earnings per share.

  • Gross revenue guidance for the full year 2024 is now between $937 million and $942 million, an increase from $930 million to $935 million.
  • 2024 GAAP EPS guidance is now between $2.87 per share and $2.93 per share, an increase from $2.86 per share to $2.92 per share.
  • 2024 Adjusted EPS guidance has been raised to $5.05 per share to $5.11 per share, an increase from $5.00 per share to $5.06 per share.

Due to our M&A activity, our intangible asset amortization has increased by $3.1 million compared to the first quarter of last year, and our interest expense has increased by $2.6 million. Our operating margins were also affected during this reporting period by the continuing integration of the Axim and VIS acquisitions. These factors affected our first quarter net income, which was $0.4 million, compared to $5.9 million in the first quarter of last year, our GAAP EPS, which was $0.03 per share compared to $0.39 per share in the first quarter of last year, and our Adjusted EPS, which was $0.66 per share compared to $0.88 per share in the first quarter of last year.

Our Adjusted EBITDA increased 4% to $28.7 million, compared to $27.7 million in the first quarter of 2023. We look forward to improving margins throughout the remainder of the year, as reflected in our raised 2024 guidance.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures; Comparability of Certain Measures

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (“EBITDA”) is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA reflects adjustments to EBITDA to eliminate stock-based compensation expense and acquisition-related costs. Management believes adjusted EBITDA, in addition to operating profit, Net Income, and other GAAP measures, is a useful indicator of our financial and operating performance and our ability to generate cash flows from operations that are available for taxes, capital expenditures, and debt service. A reconciliation of Net Income, as reported in accordance with GAAP, to adjusted EBITDA is provided at the end of this news release.

Adjusted earnings per diluted share (“Adjusted EPS”) is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Adjusted EPS reflects adjustments to reported diluted earnings per share (“GAAP EPS”) to eliminate amortization expense of intangible assets from acquisitions and acquisition-related costs, net of tax benefits. As we continue our acquisition strategy, the growth in Adjusted EPS may increase at a greater rate than GAAP EPS. A reconciliation of GAAP EPS to Adjusted EPS is provided at the end of this news release.

Our definition of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS may differ from other companies reporting similarly named measures. These measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP, such as Net Income, and Diluted Earnings per Share. In addition, when presenting forward-looking non-GAAP metrics, we are unable to provide quantitative reconciliations to the most closely correlated GAAP measure due to the uncertainty in the timing, amount or nature of any adjustments, which could be material in any period.
