Enterprise Group, Inc. ("Enterprise," or "the Company") [ TSX: E ] , a consolidator of services to the energy sector; focused primarily on construction services and specialized equipment rental, today released its Q4 2016 and FY2016 results.
For Q4 ending December 31, 201 , Enterprise saw a 2 0 percent increase in revenue to C$8. 3 million from C$6.9 million for the same period 2016. Gross p rofit margin rose to 29% from 5% in Q4 2015.
As well, the Company is pleased to report positive EBITDA of C$ 1.8 million for Q4 2016 versus (C$120,950) 2015 . For the same period, EBITDA rose to 22% from negative 2% in Q4 2015.
" Enterprise m anagement is extremely encouraged by our latest results," stated Leonard D. Jaroszuk, CEO , President and Chairman. " From negative cash flow in Q4 201 5 , management efforts raised that number to positiv e C$0.07 per share . As well, w e secured amended loan agreements to reduce o u r interest rate along with more favourable c o venants . Equal ly impressi ve is that the Company retired debt of C$18.3 million through the funds (C$19.8 million) received from the tra nsaction to divest substantially all the assets of TC Backhoe & Directional Drilling Ltd (TCB)."
The acquisition of TCB in 2007 for $12 million was immediately accretive. During our 9.5 years of ownership, TC generated roughly 13 - fold ($154 million) the p urchase price in revenues and extended our reputation as the premier and frankly the only ‘One Stop Source' for virtually every critical resource construction service.
While it has been an extremely challenging perio d f or resource companies in Western Canada, Enterprise has demonstrated its confidence and ability to analogously ‘weather the storm' strongly while many competitors and clients are either financially impaired or gone altogether.
Enterprise has turned in si gnificant gross margin and EBITDA improvements evidenced in the fourth quarter which is the result of determined leadership. Management's continued efforts to streamline and maximize efficiencies are now firmly in place and delivering meaningful margin ra tios while still navigating a challenging landscape.
The improvements to profits and the rapid return to significant cashflow should give investors' and shareholders confidence for the future. Certainly, all is still challenging in Western Canada, but to day's results show a significant improvement in both business and the overall environment.
Enterprises' clients include some of Canada's largest energy producers, utility service providers and the federal and provincial governments of Canada. The Company employs management highly experienced i n large infrastructure projects.
Given the noted limited visibility for 2017 activity and pricing levels, Enterprise will maintain a conservative approach towards Capital Spending while looking at fleet management and opportunistic asset dispositions. This approach will allow management to both maintain critical financial flexibility, allow for strategic, accretive acquisitions and continue to build compelling shareholder value.
