Mobile Mini Reports Q4’15 Results and Announces 10% Increase in Quarterly Dividend

February 5, 2016

PHOENIX, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 5, 2016-- Mobile Mini, Inc. (NASDAQ GS:MINI) (the “Company” or “Mobile Mini”), the world’s leading supplier of portable storage solutions and a leading provider of specialty containment solutions in the United States, today reported actual and adjusted financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2015. Total revenues were $134.5 million and rental revenues were $126.5 million, up from $123.2 million and $113.4 million, respectively, for the same period last year.

The Company recorded net income of $9.5 million, or $0.21 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2015 as compared to net income of $12.9 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2014. On an adjusted basis, fourth quarter net income was $18.4 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $17.0 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2014. During the fourth quarter, the Company recognized $16.0 million of restructuring expense related primarily to the integration and geographic expansion of ETS into the existing Mobile Mini footprint. The charges largely consist of non-cash fleet and property, plant and equipment abandonment costs. Adjusted EBITDA was $54.9 million and adjusted EBITDA margin was 40.9% for the fourth quarter of 2015.

Rental revenues for the portable storage and specialty containment businesses for the current quarter were $102.2 million and $24.3 million, respectively.

Dividend

The Company’s Board of Directors increased the Company’s first quarter 2016 cash dividend to 20.6 cents per share, a 10% increase as compared to the preceding period. The dividend will be paid on March 23, 2016 to shareholders of record on March 9, 2016.

Fourth Quarter 2015 Highlights

  • Increased portable storage rental revenues 5.2% year-over-year, excluding the wood mobile offices divested in May 2015, or 6.2% when adjusted for unfavorable currency fluctuations.
  • Increased portable storage rental rates by 2.8% year-over-year.
  • Expanded adjusted EBITDA margin to 40.9%, and delivered adjusted EBITDA of $54.9 million, up 12.0% from $49.0 million in the prior-year quarter.
  • Increased average portable storage utilization to 74.0%, compared to 73.3% in the prior-year when excluding wood mobile offices.
  • Delivered outstanding results in the U.K. with a 12.2% year-over-year increase in adjusted EBITDA to $8.8 million in the quarter, with a 40.0% margin.
  • Accomplished a $1.0 billion refinancing of our ABL Credit Agreement, extending the maturity to December 2020 and reducing interest rate borrowing margins.
  • Utilized strong free cash flow to return $14.4 million to our shareholders through $8.4 million in dividends and $6.0 million of repurchased treasury shares.

Full Year 2015 Highlights

  • Executed on our strategy to focus on high-return, low-maintenance assets by divesting the wood mobile office business and successfully integrating the ETS acquisition.
  • Achieved year-over-year portable storage rental rate increases of 4.5%.
  • Grew adjusted diluted earnings per share by 21.1% to $1.32.
  • Generated $73.6 million in free cash flow while reinvesting in the business with $57.9 million in net fleet capital expenditures in targeted areas of high demand.
  • Returned $95.5 million to our shareholders through $33.7 million in dividends and $61.8 million of repurchased treasury shares.

CEO Comments

Erik Olsson, Mobile Mini’s President and Chief Executive Officer, remarked, “I am very pleased with our performance and profitability in the quarter, including our adjusted EBITDA margin of 40.9%, a 110 basis point expansion compared to the prior-year quarter, despite short-term pressure related to the wood mobile office divestiture. We continued to generate momentum in the fourth quarter, with North American core activations up 7% year-over-year, and portable storage year-end units on rent up 4.3% over last year-end. Within our total portable storage business, we drove a 2.8% year-over-year rate increase, which together with an increase in units on rent, resulted in a healthy 6.2% increase in rental revenues, when adjusted for unfavorable currency exchange rates.”

Mr. Olsson continued, “Demand in our construction, industrial and diversified sectors remains strong, and we are well-situated to capitalize on our existing Mobile Mini footprint to expand our downstream specialty containment market in 2016. Throughout the second half of 2015, we have gained traction and are well-positioned to leverage our investments for mid to high single-digit rental revenue growth in 2016.”

Adjusted net income information and adjusted diluted earnings per share. Adjusted net income and related earnings per share information exclude certain transactions that management believes are not indicative of our business. We believe that the inclusion of this non-GAAP presentation makes it easier to compare our financial performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis.

EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA is defined as net income before discontinued operations, net of tax (if applicable), interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and debt restructuring or extinguishment expense (if applicable), including any write-off of deferred financing costs. Adjusted EBITDA further excludes certain non-cash expenses, including share-based compensation, as well as transactions that management believes are not indicative of our business. Because EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, as defined, exclude some but not all items that affect our cash flow from operating activities, they may not be comparable to similarly titled performance measures presented by other companies.

We present EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA because we believe they provide useful information regarding our ability to meet our future debt payment requirements, capital expenditures and working capital requirements and that they provide an overall evaluation of our financial condition. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA have certain limitations as analytical tools and should not be used as substitutes for net income, cash flows from operations, or other consolidated income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP.

EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margins are calculated as EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA divided by total revenues expressed as a percentage. The GAAP financial measure that is most directly comparable to EBITDA margin is operating margin, which represents operating income divided by revenues.

Free Cash Flow. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities, minus or plus, net cash used in or provided by investing activities, excluding acquisitions and certain transactions. Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure and is not intended to replace net cash provided by operating activities, the most directly comparable financial measure prepared in accordance with GAAP. We present free cash flow because we believe it provides useful information regarding our liquidity and ability to meet our short-term obligations. In particular, free cash flow indicates the amount of cash available after capital expenditures for, among other things, investments in our existing business, debt service obligations, payment of authorized quarterly dividends, repurchase of our common stock and strategic small acquisitions.
