Perma-Fix Reports Financial Results and Provides Business Update for the Third Quarter of 2021

11/11/2021 | 08:31am EDT

ATLANTA, Nov. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Perma-Fix Environmental Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: PESI) (the “Company”) today announced financial results and provided a business update for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Mark Duff, President and CEO of the Company, commented, “We have started to see an improvement in the business following the pandemic-related decline. Specifically, our Treatment Segment revenues have begun to increase, which has continued to build heading into the fourth quarter. Importantly, we hope to capitalize on the pent-up demand as the industry returns to normal. Similarly, our Services Segment was impacted by a hiatus in new contract awards due to the pandemic, as reflected in our third quarter results. However, the government has begun issuing these awards, and we’re starting to see the positive impact. I’m pleased to report we have already won a number of service contracts, adding approximately $50 million of project backlog since the start of the third quarter, which we believe should have a positive impact on our results beginning in the fourth quarter and into 2022. We also secured numerous Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) or multi-award task order contracts (MATOCs), which limit competition and provide an opportunity for quick and low-cost proposal development. In addition, we have continued to define and position for new procurement and market expansion opportunities with the US Navy, the US Department of Defense (DOD) and the US Department of Energy (DOE). These opportunities include work scope directly within our core competencies that will support innovative solutions and the potential for increased revenue within both sectors.”

“We continue to maintain a solid balance sheet, with cash on hand of more than $7.2 million as of September 30, 2021. As a result, we believe that we are capitalized to execute on our business strategy. We feel our recent funding will allow us to accelerate facility upgrades to support potential new revenue streams from Hanford and other government sites that could be a benefit to our Treatment Segment.”

The Company continues to proactively update its ongoing business operations and safety plans to mitigate any potential impact of COVID-19. However, as the situations surrounding COVID-19 remain fluid, the full impact and extent of the pandemic on the Company’s financial results cannot be estimated with any degree of certainty.

Financial Results
Revenue for the third quarter of 2021 was $15.8 million versus $30.2 million for the same period last year. The decrease was primarily within the Services Segment where revenue decreased to approximately $6.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 from $23.1 million for the corresponding period of 2020 resulting primarily from delays in procurement actions and contract awards from the impact of COVID-19 in the first half of 2021 and the completion of a certain large project within the Services Segment in the second quarter of 2021. However, since the end of the second quarter of 2021, our Services Segment has been awarded a number of new contracts, including a fixed price contract awarded to the Company at the end of the third quarter of 2021 with a value of approximately $40.0 million for the decommissioning of a navy ship. We expect to see a ramp-up of activities from these new projects starting in the fourth quarter of 2021. The Company’s Services Segment revenues are project based; as such, the scope, duration and completion of each project vary. As a result, the Services Segment revenues are subject to differences relating to timing and project value. Revenue for the Treatment Segment was approximately $8.9 million and $7.1 million for the third quarter of 2021 and 2020, respectively. Treatment Segment revenue for the third quarter of 2021 included revenue recognized in the amount of approximately $1,286,000 from a request for equitable adjustment (“REA”) under a certain contract. The Company’s revenue within our Treatment Segment for each of the third quarters of 2021 and 2020 continued to be negatively impacted by waste shipment delays from certain key customers primarily due to the impact of COVID-19.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2021 was $2.2 million versus $4.8 million for the third quarter of 2020. The decrease was entirely within our Services Segment due to lower revenue from fewer projects resulting primarily from delays in contract awards from the impact of COVID-19 and the completion of a certain large project as discussed above.

Operating loss for the third quarter of 2021 was approximately $1.4 million versus operating income of $1.3 million for the third quarter of 2020. Net income attributable to common stockholders for the third quarter of 2021 was approximately $1.4 million or $0.11 per share (both basic and diluted) versus $1.4 million or $0.12 per share (both basic and diluted) for the third quarter of 2020. Net income attributable to common stockholders for the third quarter of 2021 included a tax benefit recorded in the amount of approximately $2.4 million resulting from the release of valuation allowance on the Company’s deferred tax assets.

The Company recorded Adjusted EBITDA of ($798,000) from continuing operations during the quarter ended September 30, 2021, as compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $2.0 million for the same period of 2020. The Company defines EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA before research and development costs related to the Medical Isotope project and (gain) loss on extinguishment of debt. Both EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of performance calculated in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”), and should not be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for, earnings as an indicator of operating performance or cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. The Company believes the presentation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is relevant and useful by enhancing the readers’ ability to understand the Company’s operating performance. The Company’s management utilizes EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as a means to measure performance. The Company’s measurements of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similar titled measures reported by other companies. The table below reconciles EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, both non-GAAP measures, to GAAP numbers for income from continuing operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020.
