  • Free cash flow (cash flow from operating activities less capital expenditures) for the second quarter was $9.5 million or 56 percent of EBITDA.

David R. Little, Chairman and CEO, remarked, “We are pleased to report a strong second quarter and our outlook for the second half of 2017 continues to be positive. We continue to believe momentum is building in our business. DXP’s second quarter sales included sequential increases across Service Centers and Supply Chain Services. Total DXP EBITDA increased sequentially along with earnings per diluted share. The oil & gas and industrial economy remain firm with meaningful sales growth within Service Centers. Most of our customers and the markets we serve continue to show improvement. We remain encouraged by the sequential increases despite the continued choppiness from time-to-time in our key end markets. Thank you to all our customers and DXPeople for the support and effort.

“DXP’s second quarter 2017 sales were $250.7 million, or a 5.1 percent increase over the first quarter. During the second quarter, sales were $164.7 million for Service Centers, $44.5 million for Innovative Pumping Solutions and $41.5 million for Supply Chain Services. Business segment operating income increased 14 percent sequentially and 7 percent year-over-year. We remain focused on serving existing and new customers, continuing to focus on enhancing and improving our operational execution, investing in products and people and pursuing a capital structure that aligns DXP for the future.”

Kent Yee, CFO, added, “Our second quarter sequential sales growth of 5.1 percent was great to see. Our financial results reflect our continued focus on our customers and improving market conditions. We turned DXP’s sales growth into a 9 percent sequential increase in EBITDA and 35 percent increase in earnings per diluted share. Total debt outstanding as of June 30, 2017 was $221 million. We are excited by our sales team’s focus on organic sales growth and teamwork as well as the overall tone at DXP. We look forward to continuing the momentum into the second half of the year.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

DXP supplements reporting of net income (loss) with non-GAAP measurements, including EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow. This supplemental information should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the unaudited GAAP measurements. Additional information regarding EBITDA referred to in this press release is included below under "--Unaudited Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Information."

The Company believes EBITDA provides additional information about: (i) operating performance, because it assists in comparing the operating performance of the business, as it removes the impact of non-cash depreciation and amortization expense as well as items not directly resulting from core operations such as interest expense and income taxes and (ii) the performance and the effectiveness of operational strategies. Additionally, EBITDA performance is a component of a measure of the Company’s financial covenants under its credit facility. Furthermore, some investors use EBITDA as a supplemental measure to evaluate the overall operating performance of companies in the industry. Management believes that some investors’ understanding of performance is enhanced by including this non-GAAP financial measure as a reasonable basis for comparing ongoing results of operations. By providing this non-GAAP financial measure, together with a reconciliation from net income, the Company believes it is enhancing investors’ understanding of the business and results of operations, as well as assisting investors in evaluating how well the Company is executing strategic initiatives.
