BONITA SPRINGS, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Herc Holdings Inc. (NYSE: HRI) ("Herc Holdings" or the "Company") today reported financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2021. Equipment rental revenue was $519.6 million and total revenues were $550.4 million in the third quarter of 2021, compared to $402.3 million and $456.7 million, respectively, for the same period last year. The Company reported net income of $72.3 million, or $2.37 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2021, compared to $39.9 million, or $1.35 per diluted share, in the same 2020 period.

"Our third quarter performance illustrates how Herc Rentals is shifting into high gear to capitalize on the benefits of operating leverage and scale that we discussed at our Investor Day," said Larry Silber, president and chief executive officer. "We achieved another record for total revenues and adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2021. Total revenues increased 21% and adjusted EBITDA grew 25% compared to the same period last year. Dollar utilization was also a record 46.0%, enhanced by steady demand in our markets and a positive operating environment. Our long term strategy is driving results and we are positioned for a record year in 2021."

2021 Third Quarter Financial Results

  • Equipment rental revenue increased 29.2% to $519.6 million compared to $402.3 million in the prior-year period.
  • Total revenues increased 20.5% to $550.4 million compared to $456.7 million in the prior-year period. The year-over-year increase of $93.7 million was related primarily to an increase in equipment rental revenue of $117.3 million, partially offset by a decrease of $28.7 million in sales of rental equipment.
  • Pricing increased 2.8% compared to the same period in 2020.
  • Dollar utilization increased to 46.0% compared to 37.6% in the prior-year period.
  • Direct operating expenses (DOE) of $225.9 million increased 33.4% compared to the prior-year period. The $56.5 million increase was primarily due to higher personnel-related costs, and increases related to higher year-over-year volume such as delivery and freight, maintenance and re-rent expense.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) increased 33.6% to $81.5 million compared to $61.0 million in the prior-year period. The $20.5 million increase was primarily attributed to increases in selling expenses, including commissions and bonus incentives, and travel expenses as business travel returned to pre-pandemic levels.
  • Interest expense decreased to $21.4 million compared to $22.4 million in the prior-year period. The decrease was primarily related to both lower interest rates and balances of the Company's ABL Credit Facility in 2021.
  • The income tax provision was $23.8 million compared to $11.7 million for the prior-year period. The increase was driven primarily by the level of pre-tax income.
  • The Company reported net income of $72.3 million compared to $39.9 million in the prior-year period. Adjusted net income was $72.7 million compared to $39.8 million in the prior-year period.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 25.0% to $245.9 million compared to $196.7 million in the prior-year period.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 160 basis points to 44.7% compared to 43.1% in the prior-year period.

2021 Nine Months Financial Results

  • Equipment rental revenue increased 22.5% to $1,368.0 million compared to $1,116.4 million in the prior-year period.
  • Total revenues increased 18.6% to $1,495.1 million compared to $1,260.9 million in the prior-year period. The year-over-year increase of $234.2 million was related primarily to an increase in equipment rental revenue of $251.6 million, partially offset by a decline in sales of rental equipment of $25.6 million.
  • Pricing increased 1.6% compared to the same period in 2020.
  • Dollar utilization increased to 42.4% compared to 34.7% in the prior-year period.
  • Direct operating expenses (DOE) of $611.9 million increased 21.6% compared to the prior-year period. The $108.6 million increase was primarily due to higher personnel-related costs, and increases related to higher volume such as delivery and freight expenses, maintenance and re-rent expense.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) increased 17.8% to $221.0 million compared to $187.6 million in the prior-year period. The $33.4 million increase was primarily attributed to selling expenses, including commissions and bonus incentives, general payroll and benefit increases including higher stock compensation expense, offset by a reduction in bad debt expense due to continued improvement in collections.
  • Interest expense decreased to $63.8 million compared to $70.1 million in the prior-year period. The decrease was primarily related to both lower interest rates and balances of the Company's ABL Credit Facility in 2021.
  • The income tax provision was $46.7 million compared to $10.9 million for the prior-year period. The provision in the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was primarily driven by the level of pre-tax income.
  • The Company reported net income of $152.3 million compared to $38.2 million in the prior-year period. Adjusted net income was $153.6 million compared to $48.2 million in the prior-year period.

Net debt was $1.8 billion as of September 30, 2021, with net leverage of 2.1x compared to 2.5x in the same prior-year period.
  • The Company's net leverage of 2.1x is at the low end of the targeted net leverage range of 2.0x to 3.0x.
  • The Company also recently declared the payment of its first quarterly dividend of $0.50, payable to record holders as of October 20, 2021, with payment date of November 4, 2021.

Outlook

The Company affirmed its full year 2021 and 2022 guidance ranges of:

 

 

2021

 

2022

Adjusted EBITDA:

 

$870 million to $890 million

 

$1,050 million to $1,150 million

Net rental equipment capital expenditures:

 

$500 million to $550 million

"We shared our 2021 to 2024 annual goals for organic CAGR growth of 12% to 15% in rental revenue and 17% to 20% in adjusted EBITDA at our recent Investor Day," said Silber. "We have strong momentum and intend to invest in new locations, fleet and acquisitions to enhance our urban density and improve our operating leverage and scale. We are committed to a capital allocation plan that balances our investment growth options between organic and acquisition growth.

In addition, we are pleased to establish the payment of a quarterly dividend of $0.50, with the first payment scheduled for November 4. We believe that our commitment to a dividend will help to broaden our shareholder base, and that we are well positioned to execute our strategy and deliver value to all of our stakeholders."

Forward looking statements are generally identified by the words "estimates," "expects," "anticipates," "projects," "plans," "intends," "believes," "forecasts," "looks," and future or conditional verbs, such as "will," "should," "could" or "may," as well as variations of such words or similar expressions. All forward-looking statements are based upon our current expectations and various assumptions and, there can be no assurance that our current expectations will be achieved.

Information Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to results calculated according to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), the Company has provided certain information in this release that is not calculated according to GAAP (“non-GAAP”), such as EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per diluted common share and free cash flow. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate operating performance and period-over-period performance of our core business without regard to potential distortions, and believes that investors will likewise find these non-GAAP measures useful in evaluating the Company’s performance. These measures are frequently used by security analysts, institutional investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP and, as calculated, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. For the definitions of these terms, further information about management’s use of these measures as well as a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the supplemental schedules that accompany this release.

EBITDA AND ADJUSTED EBITDA RECONCILIATIONS
Unaudited
(In millions)

EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA - EBITDA represents the sum of net income (loss), provision (benefit) for income taxes, interest expense, net, depreciation of rental equipment and non-rental depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA plus the sum of merger and acquisition related costs, restructuring and restructuring related charges, spin-off costs, non-cash stock-based compensation charges, loss on extinguishment of debt (which is included in interest expense, net), impairment charges, gain (loss) on the disposal of a business and certain other items. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA do not purport to be alternatives to net income as an indicator of operating performance. Additionally, neither measure purports to be an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity, as they do not consider certain cash requirements such as interest payments and tax payments.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin - Adjusted EBITDA Margin, calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by Total Revenues, is a commonly used profitability ratio.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Diluted Share - Adjusted Net Income represents the sum of net income (loss), restructuring and restructuring related charges, spin-off costs, loss on extinguishment of debt, impairment charges, merger and acquisition-related costs, gain (loss) on the disposal of a business and certain other items. Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share represents Adjusted Net Income divided by diluted shares outstanding. Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Diluted Share are important measures to evaluate our results of operations between periods on a more comparable basis and to help investors analyze underlying trends in our business, evaluate the performance of our business both on an absolute basis and relative to our peers and the broader market, provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of our core operating results and operational strength of our business.

FREE CASH FLOW
Unaudited
(In millions)

Free cash flow represents net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less rental equipment expenditures and non-rental capital expenditures, plus proceeds from disposal of rental equipment, proceeds from disposal of property and equipment, and other investing activities. Free cash flow is used by management in analyzing the Company’s ability to service and repay its debt, fund potential acquisitions and to forecast future periods. However, this measure does not represent funds available for investment or other discretionary uses since it does not deduct cash used to service debt or for other non-discretionary expenditures.
