Perma-Fix Reports 34% Increase in Revenue to $30.2 Million and $1.4 Million of Net Income Attributable to Common Stockholders for the Third Quarter of 2020

ATLANTA, GA / ACCESSWIRE / November 5, 2020 / Perma-Fix Environmental Services, Inc. ("Perma-Fix" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:PESI) today announced results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Third Quarter 2020 Financial Highlights:

  • Revenue for the third quarter of 2020 increased 33.9% to $30.2 million versus $22.5 million for the same period last year
  • Services Segment revenue for the third quarter of 2020 increased 85.5% to $23.1 million versus $12.4 million for the same period last year
  • Treatment Segment revenue for the third quarter of 2020 was $7.1 million versus $10.1 million for the same period last year
  • Gross profit for the third quarter of 2020 was $4.8 million versus $5.2 million for the same period last year
  • Achieved net income attributable to common stockholders of $1.4 million, or $0.12 per share (both basic and diluted) for the third quarter of 2020, compared to $1.8 million, or $0.15 per share (both basic and diluted) for the same period last year
  • Generated adjusted EBITDA (defined below) of $2.0 million compared to $2.4 million for the same period last year (see reconciliation to GAAP below)

Mark Duff, President & CEO, stated, "We continue to experience growth within our Services Segment, as revenue nearly doubled versus the same period last year and we have maintained a solid sales pipeline. We also achieved profitability for the third quarter of 2020, which was accomplished despite delayed waste shipments within our Treatment Segment directly related to the impact of COVID-19 including generator shutdowns and limited sustained operations, as well as a transition to new prime contractors at certain U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) sites. Nevertheless, we believe these impacts are temporary, and we remain optimistic about our growth strategy for next year, as we pursue new and potentially lucrative waste streams, as well as broaden our client base, including both commercial and international business."

COVID-19

The Company continues to make adjustments and implement additional precautions necessary to limit the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its ongoing operations. All of the projects within the Services Segment that were previously shutdown have recommenced since the latter part of the second quarter of 2020. The Company's Treatment Segment continues to see delays in waste shipments from certain customers due to continued impacts of COVID-19. 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 2020 was $30.2 million versus $22.5 million for the same period last year. Revenue from the Services Segment was $23.1 million versus $12.4 million for the same period in 2019. The increase in Services Segment revenues was attributed to more project work. Revenue for the Treatment Segment was $7.1 million for the third quarter of 2020, as compared to $10.1 million for the same period in 2019. The revenue decrease in the Treatment segment was the result of reduced volume as well as lower averaged price which is impacted by waste mix.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2020 was $4.8 million versus $5.2 million for the third quarter of 2019. The decrease in gross profit was entirely within our Treatment Segment where gross profit decreased by approximately $2.2 million due to lower waste volume and lower averaged price waste as discussed above. Services Segment gross profit increased by approximately $1.8 million from more project work.

Operating income for the third quarter of 2020 was $1.3 million versus an operating income of $2.0 million for the third quarter of 2019. Net income attributable to common stockholders for the third quarter of 2020 was $1.4 million as compared to $1.8 million for the third quarter of 2019. Net income per common share (both basic and diluted) was $0.12 for the third quarter of 2020 versus $0.15 per common share for the third quarter of 2019.

The Company recorded Adjusted EBITDA of $2.0 million from continuing operations during the quarter ended September 30, 2020, as compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $2.4 million for the same period of 2019. 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 closure costs accrued for the Company's East Tennessee Materials and Energy Corporation ("M&EC") subsidiary. 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, 2020 and 2019.
