Iron Mountain Reports Second-Quarter 2019 Results

BOSTON, Aug. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Iron Mountain Incorporated (NYSE: IRM), the storage and information management services company, announces financial and operating results for the second quarter of 2019. The conference call / webcast details, earnings call presentation and supplemental financial information, which includes definitions of certain capitalized terms used in this release, are available on Iron Mountain's Investor Relations website. Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the appropriate GAAP measures are included herein.

"We are very pleased with the continued revenue growth across our businesses, and the improved operational execution in line with our previous outlook," said William L. Meaney, president and CEO of Iron Mountain. "Organic storage rental revenue grew 2.4% this quarter, whilst organic service revenue was impacted by lower recycled paper prices in our Secure Shred business compared to a year ago. In addition, we are happy to announce that, in July, our Global Data Center team signed a six megawatt deployment in Northern Virginia, which should add significant value to the ecosystem at our Manassas campus."

Financial Performance Highlights for the Second Quarter of 2019

  • Total reported Revenues for the second quarter were $1.07 billion, compared with $1.06 billion in the second quarter of 2018. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange (FX), reported total Revenues grew 3.1% compared to the prior year, reflecting the contribution from Data Center and Fine Art storage acquisitions not included in the full 2018 period, as well as organic growth across most of our segments and regions.
  • Income from Continuing Operations for the second quarter was $92.3 million, consistent with the second quarter of 2018. Income from Continuing Operations included $1.9 million of Significant Acquisition Costs in the second quarter of 2019, compared with $10.4 million in the second quarter of 2018.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter was $350.9 million, compared with $367.6 million in the second quarter of 2018. On a constant currency basis, Adjusted EBITDA decreased by 2.6%, in part reflecting the impact of lower recycled paper prices, which reduced Adjusted EBITDA by approximately $6 million in the second quarter of 2019.
  • Reported EPS - Fully Diluted from Continuing Operations for the second quarter was $0.32 consistent with the second quarter of 2018.
  • Adjusted EPS for the second quarter was $0.23, compared with $0.30 in the second quarter of 2018. The structural tax rate was 17.7% in the second quarter of 2019, compared with 22.0% in the second quarter of 2018.
  • Net Income for the second quarter was $92.5 million compared with $91.9 million in the second quarter of 2018.
  • FFO (Normalized) per share was $0.54 for the second quarter, compared with $0.58 in the second quarter of 2018.
  • AFFO was $209.6 million for the second quarter compared with $228.1 million in the second quarter of 2018, a decrease of 8.1%.

(1) Excludes realized and unrealized foreign currency transaction (gains) losses.

 

Adjusted EBITDA
Adjusted EBITDA is defined as income (loss) from continuing operations before interest expense, net, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and also excludes certain items that we believe are not indicative of our core operating results, specifically: (i) (gain) loss on disposal/write-down of property, plant and equipment (including real estate), net; (ii) intangible impairments; (iii) other (income) expense, net (which includes foreign currency transaction (gains) losses, net); and (iv) Significant Acquisition Costs. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by total revenues. We use multiples of current or projected Adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with our discounted cash flow models to determine our estimated overall enterprise valuation and to evaluate acquisition targets. We believe Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin provide our current and potential investors with relevant and useful information regarding our ability to generate cash flow to support business investment. These measures are an integral part of the internal reporting system we use to assess and evaluate the operating performance of our business.

Adjusted EBITDA excludes both interest expense, net and the provision (benefit) for income taxes. These expenses are associated with our capitalization and tax structures, which we do not consider when evaluating the operating profitability of our core operations. Finally, Adjusted EBITDA does not include depreciation and amortization expenses, in order to eliminate the impact of capital investments, which we evaluate by comparing capital expenditures to incremental revenue generated and as a percentage of total revenues. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP, such as operating income, income (loss) from continuing operations, net income (loss) or cash flows from operating activities from continuing operations (as determined in accordance with GAAP).

(1) The difference between our effective tax rates and our structural tax rate (or adjusted effective tax rates) for the six months ended June 30, 2019
and 2018, respectively, is primarily due to (i) the reconciling items above, which impact our reported income (loss) from continuing operations before
provision (benefit) for income taxes but have an insignificant impact on our reported provision (benefit) for income taxes and (ii) other discrete tax
items. Our structural tax rate for purposes of the calculation of Adjusted EPS was 17.7% for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and 22.0% for the
six months ended June 30, 2018. The Tax Impact of Reconciling Items and Discrete Tax Items is calculated using the current quarter's estimate of the
annual structural tax rate for both the three month and YTD periods. This may result in the current period adjustment plus prior reported quarterly
adjustments to not sum to the full year adjustment.

 

Adjusted Earnings Per Share, or Adjusted EPS
Adjusted EPS is defined as reported earnings per share fully diluted from continuing operations excluding: (i) (gain) loss on disposal/write-down of property, plant and equipment (including real estate), net; (ii) intangible impairments; (iii) other (income) expense, net (which includes foreign currency transaction (gains) losses, net); (iv) Significant Acquisition Costs; and (v) the tax impact of reconciling items and discrete tax items. Adjusted EPS includes income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests. We do not believe these excluded items to be indicative of our ongoing operating results, and they are not considered when we are forecasting our future results. We believe Adjusted EPS is of value to our current and potential investors when comparing our results from past, present and future periods.

Funds From Operations, or FFO (Nareit), and FFO (Normalized)
Funds from operations ("FFO") is defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("Nareit") and us as net income (loss) excluding depreciation on real estate assets, gains on sale of real estate, net of tax and amortization of data center leased-based intangibles ("FFO (Nareit)"). FFO (Nareit) does not give effect to real estate depreciation because these amounts are computed, under GAAP, to allocate the cost of a property over its useful life. Because values for well-maintained real estate assets have historically increased or decreased based upon prevailing market conditions, we believe that FFO (Nareit) provides investors with a clearer view of our operating performance. Our most directly comparable GAAP measure to FFO (Nareit) is net income (loss). Although Nareit has published a definition of FFO, modifications to FFO (Nareit) are common among REITs as companies seek to provide financial measures that most meaningfully reflect their particular business. Our definition of FFO (Normalized) excludes certain items included in FFO (Nareit) that we believe are not indicative of our core operating results, specifically: (i) (gain) loss on disposal/write-down of property, plant and equipment (excluding real estate), net; (ii) intangible impairments; (iii) other expense (income), net (which includes foreign currency transaction (gains) losses, net); (iv) real estate financing lease depreciation; (v) Significant Acquisition Costs; (vi) the tax impact of reconciling items and discrete tax items; (vii) loss (income) from discontinued operations, net of tax; and (viii) loss (gain) on sale of discontinued operations, net of tax.

FFO (Normalized) per share
FFO (Normalized) divided by weighted average fully-diluted shares outstanding.

Adjusted Funds From Operations, or AFFO
AFFO is defined as FFO (Normalized) excluding non-cash rent expense or income plus depreciation on non-real estate assets, amortization expense associated with customer relationship value (CRV), intake costs, acquisitions of customer relationships and other intangibles, and excluding amortization expense associated with capitalized internal commissions, amortization of deferred financing costs, revenue reduction associated with amortization of permanent withdrawal fees and above-and below-market data center leases, stock-based compensation expense and the impact of reconciling to normalized cash taxes, less recurring capital expenditures and non-real estate growth investments (on a cash basis), excluding Significant Acquisition Capital Expenditures. We believe AFFO is a useful measure in determining our ability to generate excess cash that may be used for reinvestment in the business, discretionary deployment in investments such as real estate or acquisition opportunities, returning capital to our stockholders and voluntary prepayments of indebtedness. Additionally AFFO is reconciled to cash flow from operations to adjust for real estate and REIT tax adjustments, Significant Acquisition Costs and other non-cash expenses. AFFO does not include adjustments for customer inducements, acquisition of customer relationships and investment in innovation as we consider these expenditures to be growth related.
