HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- DXP Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: DXPE) today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022. The following are results for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021 and sequentially for the three months ended December 31, 2021, where appropriate. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures can be found in the back of this press release.

First Quarter 2022 financial highlights:

  • Sales increased 30.1 percent to $319.4 million, compared to $245.6 million for the first quarter of 2021 and approximately 9.0 percent compared to $293.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2021.
  • Earnings per diluted share for the first quarter was $0.65 based upon 19.4 million diluted shares, compared to earnings of $0.02 per share in the first quarter of March 31, 2021, based on 20.0 million diluted shares.
  • Net income for the first quarter was $12.6 million, compared to $371 thousand for the prior-year period.
  • Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) for the first quarter of 2022 was $28.3 million compared to $14.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2021 and $14.0 million for the first quarter of 2021.

David R. Little, Chairman and CEO commented, "Our first quarter results reflect what we see as momentum building in our business. We are pleased with DXP's first quarter results which included sequential sales and operating income growth across all three business segments. Total DXP Adjusted EBITDA also increased sequentially and resulted in strong margin improvement. We are encouraged by the organic and acquisition growth, increased earnings driven by the operating leverage we are accustom to seeing within our industry despite the current macro backdrop which includes supply chain challenges, impacts from inflation and the abating COVID crisis. Our improved momentum continued in the first quarter as our DXPeople worked together to manage through supply chain challenges and get in front of rising product costs.

"DXP’s first quarter 2021 sales were $319.4 million, or a 30.1 percent increase year-over-year and a 9.0 percent increase over the fourth quarter. During the first quarter, sales were $218.8 million for Service Centers, $53.1 million for Innovative Pumping Solutions and $47.6 million for Supply Chain Services. Most of our customers and the markets we serve continue to show improvement which began in the third and fourth quarter of last year. We have added three acquisitions since the beginning of the year and we expect to close more moving further into fiscal year 2022. While the near-term environment remains dynamic with product inflation, supply chain and labor challenges, and broader economic uncertainty, we remain confident that the underlying demand trends, our robust acquisition pipeline, and our strategic initiatives will allow us to achieve excellent performance and growth in 2022 and beyond. Thank you to all our customers and DXPeople."

Kent Yee, CFO, added, "Our first quarter year-over-year sales growth of 30.1 percent and gross margin improvement were great to see. We turned this into a 91 percent sequential increase in Adjusted EBITDA during a period where DXP has seasonally higher expenses. Our financial results reflect our continued focus on our customers and improving market conditions. As of March 31, 2022, we had $36.7 million in cash. We turned DXP’s sales growth into $0.65 in earnings per diluted share for the first quarter. Total debt outstanding as of March 31, 2022 was $325.9 million with senior leverage of 3.2:1, well under our covenant of 5.25:1. We remain excited by our sales team’s focus on organic sales growth as well as the contributions from recent acquisitions. The DXP effort to be customer driven experts and moving into new markets like water and wastewater is moving DXP in the right direction and we look forward to continuing the momentum into fiscal 2022."

Financial Strength and Liquidity

Net debt, calculated as total long-term debt, net of cash, on our balance sheet as of March 31, 2022, was $289.3 million compared to $277.7 million at December 31, 2021. As of March 31, 2022, DXP has approximately $168.8 million in liquidity, consisting of $36.6 million in cash on hand and approximately $132.2 million in availability under our ABL facility.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

DXP supplements reporting of net income with non-GAAP measurements, including EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, non-GAAP net income and net debt. This supplemental information should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the unaudited GAAP measurements. Additional information regarding EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow and non-GAAP net income referred to in this press release are 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. Free Cash Flow reconciles to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure of cash flows from operations as provided below. We believe Free Cash Flow is an important liquidity metric because it measures, during a given period, the amount of cash generated that is available to fund acquisitions, make investments, repay debt obligations, repurchase company shares, and for certain other activities.
