CB&I Reports Full-Year and Fourth Quarter Results

25 Feb, 2016, 16:15 ET from CB&I

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Feb. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CB&I (NYSE: CBI) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full-year 2015. For the year, adjusted net income was $630.7 million, or $5.86 per diluted share. Adjusted operating income was in excess of $1 billion, or 8.4 percent of revenue. Revenue for the year was $13 billion, including an $890 million negative impact attributable to foreign currency translation. New awards for the year exceeded $13 billion, resulting in a backlog of $23 billion at year end.

For the fourth quarter of 2015, adjusted net income was $165.2 million, or $1.56 per diluted share. Adjusted operating income was $279.3 million or 8.5 percent of revenue. Revenue for the fourth quarter was $3.3 billion, and new awards were $3.3 billion. Net operating cash flows for the quarter were $117 million, resulting in a net operating cash use of $56 million for the year.

"We are pleased with our results for the year, particularly our record of safety and execution excellence. Throughout 2015 we continued to capitalize on the competitiveness of our business model and completed strategic milestones to strengthen our ability to deliver shareholder value," said Philip K. Asherman, CB&I's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our efforts enable us to begin 2016 with high-quality backlog and visibility into strong earnings and cash flows to deliver our capital allocation goals."

New awards of $13 billion for the year include bookings for the engineering and construction of two ethane crackers on the U.S. Gulf Coast, a liquids ethane cracker and associated units in the Middle East, an additional liquefaction train for an existing LNG project in Texas, a combined-cycle gas turbine plant on the Gulf Coast, and construction services for a petrochemical derivatives plant in the U.S. Additionally, CB&I was selected for the engineering and construction of significant LNG developments in East Africa, which the company expects to book during 2016.

Importantly, new awards for 2015 highlight CB&I's positioning in diverse end-markets, versatility of offerings and global reach. Additional noteworthy awards include maintenance contracts for a variety of power and industrial facilities globally; fabrication of low-temperature storage tanks and spheres in the U.S.; storage tanks for a clean fuels project in the Middle East; pipe fabrication for petrochemical and LNG facilities on the Gulf Coast; engineered products for a refinery in Russia and a hydrotreater in the U.S.; technology licensing for an ethylene plant on the Gulf Coast and a hydroprocessing facility in Asia; refining and petrochemical catalysts in North America and Africa; and numerous strategic technology licenses and catalysts sales globally.

The tables below include a reconciliation of GAAP financial results to adjusted financial results for the fourth quarter and full-year 2015 which exclude a non-cash after-tax charge of $1.1 billion resulting from the company's sale of its nuclear construction business on December, 31, 2015.

During the three months ended March 31, 2015, we realigned our reportable segments to reflect the present management oversight of our operations. Our maintenance business that was previously reported within our Engineering & Construction operating group (formerly Engineering, Construction & Maintenance) is now reported within our Capital Services operating group (formerly Environmental Solutions), and our engineered products business that was previously reported within our Technology operating group is now reported within our Fabrication Services operating group. Our segment results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2014 were reclassified to reflect the reportable segment realignment.

(3)

During the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2015, we recorded a non-cash pre-tax charge of $345,371 and $1,505,851, respectively, within our Engineering & Construction operating group related to the disposition of our nuclear operations.

The summary unaudited pro forma financial information presented in the table above is for illustrative purposes only and is based on assumptions and estimates considered appropriate by CB&I management; however, it is not necessarily indicative of what CB&I's consolidated financial position or results of operations actually would have been assuming the transaction was completed on January 1, 2015, and does not purport to represent CB&I's consolidated financial position or results of operations for future periods. The above should be read together with the historical financial statements, including the related notes thereto, included in CB&I's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015, and its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2015, June 30, 2015, and September 30, 2015.

(2)

The unadjusted per share amounts for the three and twelve month 2015 periods are based upon diluted weighted average shares that are equivalent to our basic weighted average shares of 104,763 and 106,766, respectively, due to the net loss for the periods. The adjusted per share amounts for the three and twelve month 2015 periods are based upon diluted weighted average shares of 105,926 and 107,719, respectively.
