Team, Inc. Reports 2nd Quarter Earnings and Affirms Full Year Guidance

Jan 05, 2010, 16:05 ET from Team, Inc.

ALVIN, Texas, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Team, Inc., (Nasdaq: TISI) today reported net income of $5.8 million ($0.30 per diluted share) for its second quarter ended November 30, 2009. Results for the quarter included pre-tax, non-routine legal and accounting costs of $1.2 million ($.04 per diluted share, after tax) related to an ongoing, independent investigation. Excluding the non-routine costs, net income would have been $6.6 million ($0.34 per diluted share). Revenues for the six months ended November 30, 2009 were $224.2 million and net income for the same period was $7.0 million ($0.36 per diluted share), or $8.4 million ($0.43 per diluted share) excluding the non-routine charges relating to the investigation. The Company also affirmed its full year earnings guidance of $0.85 to $1.05 per diluted share (excluding the effect of the non-routine charges).

"I am generally pleased with the performance of our business in this weak economic climate. Our focus has been on managing our costs, maintaining our profitability, expanding our financial flexibility, and staying well-positioned for continued long-term business growth," said Phil Hawk, Team's Chairman and CEO.

Second Quarter Performance

Team's revenues during the quarter were $123.3 million, down $25.5 million from the record setting corresponding prior year quarter. Similarly, revenues for the six months ended November 30, 2009 were $224.2 million, down $47.9 million from the prior year. The comparable prior year results represented the best results in Team history as the effects of the current recession were not felt by Team until later in the prior fiscal year. The decline in revenues during the current fiscal year was broad based, affecting nearly all of Team's geographic regions and service lines.

Team's operating income for the current quarter was $10.3 million, earnings before income tax was $9.6 million and net income was $5.8 million. These results include non-routine outside professional costs of $1.2 million related to an external investigation. Excluding the non-routine costs, operating income would have been $11.5 million, and net income would have been $6.6 million. Team's operating income for the six months ended November 30, 2009 was $12.9 million, and net income was $7.0 million. Excluding non-routine costs of $2.3 million for the current six month period, operating income would have been $15.2 million, and net income would have been $8.4 million.

Actions taken to reduce Team's overall cost structure and improve efficiency in both its field service and corporate support activities contributed to the Company's performance. SG&A for the current quarter, when adjusted for the non-routine investigation costs, decreased $3.9 million compared to the prior year quarter.

As previously reported, the Audit Committee is conducting an independent investigation regarding possible violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act ("FCPA") in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission. While the investigation is ongoing, management continues to believe that any possible violations of the FCPA are limited in size and scope. The investigation is now expected to be completed during the first calendar quarter of 2010. The total professional costs associated with the investigation are now projected to be about $3.0 million.

Team Affirms Full Year Guidance

Team is affirming its earnings guidance of $0.85 to $1.05 per fully diluted share for fiscal year 2010. Such guidance excludes the impact of the non-routine investigation costs. Earnings guidance is based on the expectation that revenues in the second half of the year will be approximately 10% higher than in the first half of the year.
