Layne Christensen Provides Preliminary Fiscal 2017 Fourth Quarter Results
Company to host a conference call on Tuesday, March 21, 2017 at 9:00 am eastern time

ADVERTISEMENT [ how to become an advertiser ]
THE WOODLANDS, Texas, March 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Layne Christensen Company (NASDAQ: LAYN) ("Layne" or the "Company") today announced selected and preliminary financial information for its fiscal 2017 fourth quarter, which ended January 31, 2017.

The preliminary results of operations for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 represent the most current information available to management. The Company's actual results may differ materially from these preliminary estimates due to adjustments and other developments that may arise between the date of this press release and the time that financial results for the fourth quarter are finalized.

Layne expects to report fiscal 2017 fourth quarter revenues of between $127 million and $131 million, compared to $159 million in last year's fourth quarter. The year-over-year decline was mainly due to reduced Water Resources' drilling activity in the western U.S., stemming largely from significant precipitation over the course of the past year, and Heavy Civil's continuing shift towards more selective opportunities.

The Company expects to report fiscal 2017 fourth quarter net loss from continuing operations before income taxes of between $(33) million and $(35) million, compared to a loss of $(11.9) million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016. Included in the fiscal 2017 year loss is a non-cash charge of approximately $12 million related to the cumulative currency translation adjustment in association with the closure of Layne's African and Australian businesses. In addition, Layne expects to report Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP financial measure as defined below) for its fiscal 2017 fourth quarter of between negative $(7) million and negative $(9) million compared to positive $3.5 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016. The year-over-year decline in Adjusted EBITDA was mainly due to higher costs and margin degradation on six large projects in Water Resources and three projects in Heavy Civil. As previously disclosed in a February 9, 2017 press release, Layne entered into a definitive agreement to sell substantially all of its Heavy Civil business; management continues to expect that the Heavy Civil transaction will close in approximately 50 days.

Layne's Inliner and the Mineral Services segments are expected to generate Adjusted EBITDA during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 consistent with the Company's internal expectations.

Michael J. Caliel, President and Chief Executive Officer of Layne, commented, "Despite strong performance at Inliner, we are extremely disappointed with our 2017 fiscal fourth quarter results as a result of the underperformance in our Water Resources division. Water Resources' margins were impacted by a combination of execution issues on six large projects that incurred losses of more than $5 million during the recently-completed fourth quarter, as well as reduced activity in California.

"We have been proactive in addressing this situation and are in the midst of significantly enhancing our project management processes in Water Resources to improve overall risk management and profitability. These efforts are a continuation of our business performance initiatives that were initiated in Water Resources in the middle of fiscal year 2017. Given that a number of our losses over the course of the year in Water Resources related to unexpected difficulties in site conditions, we have changed our policies in order to reduce our contractual exposure to such risks, especially in our larger drilling and injection well projects. We have a clear understanding of the issues impacting Water Resources and more importantly, we believe we have the experience, track record and know how to fix them."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

We use Adjusted EBITDA to assess performance which is not defined in generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Our measure of Adjusted EBITDA, which may not be comparable to other companies' measure of Adjusted EBITDA, represents income or loss from continuing operations before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash share-based compensation, equity in earnings or losses from affiliates, certain non-recurring items such as impairment charges, restructuring costs, gain on extinguishment of debt, and certain other gains or losses, plus dividends received from affiliates. We believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA included in this report helps us understand and evaluate our operating performance and trends and provides useful information to both management and investors. In addition, we use Adjusted EBITDA as a factor in incentive compensation decisions and our credit facility agreement uses measures similar to Adjusted EBITDA to assess compliance with certain covenants. Adjusted EBITDA should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results.

The following table reconciles our range of estimated Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 to our range of estimated net loss from continuing operations before income taxes for the same period, which we consider to be the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to Adjusted EBITDA.
