Daseke Reports Record Second Quarter 2018 Results and Increases Full-Year Outlook

Addison,  Texas –  August 9,  2018  –  Daseke, Inc. (NASDAQ: DSKE) (NASDAQ: DSKEW), the largest flatbed, specialized transportation and logistics solutions company in North America, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30,  2018.

·

Revenue increased 91% to $376.9 million.

·

Flatbed Solutions revenue up 87% to $162.2 million; Specialized Solutions revenue up 95% to $218.4 million1.

·

Net income improved significantly to $13.5 million, or $0.20 per share, compared to a net loss of $(4.1) million, or $(0.15) per share.

Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP term defined below) increased 91% to $46.3 million.

Management Commentary

“The momentum in our business has continued into the second quarter, with strong growth in revenue and Adjusted EBITDA,” said Don Daseke, chairman and CEO. “This was driven by year-over-year rate increases and growth in revenue per tractor in both the Flatbed and Specialized Solutions segments, excluding acquisitions. Our progress on various organic growth initiatives was also evident in a 13% increase in Acquisition-Adjusted2 EBITDA to $48.1 million.

 

“Further, in May 2018, we launched Daseke Fleet Services to support our growing scale, leveraging areas such as purchasing, equipment optimization and maintenance to improve cost efficiencies in ways that support our operating companies and Daseke’s overall organic growth. We expect this new department to reduce operating expenses, which would improve our operating income and margins.

 

“Given our strong performance in the first half of 2018, including organic growth from acquisitions, we are raising our full-year outlook. Our focus for the remainder of the year will be to continue executing on our well-defined strategic priorities. This begins with a focus on our organic growth initiatives, such as Daseke Fleet Services, and appropriate operations consolidations as we did with Kelsey Trail and Big Freight. We also remain committed to a focused M&A strategy and our pipeline remains robust. In fact, our acquisition of flatbed-focused Builders Transportation last week is a testament to our pipeline and our scalable platform.”

 

Second Quarter 2018  Financial Results

Revenue in the second quarter of 2018 increased 91% to $376.9 million compared to $197.3 million in the year-ago quarter. The increase was primarily driven by the acquisition of seven operating companies of scale during 2017. Excluding the acquisitions, revenues increased 13%  largely due to an improvement in rates in both the Flatbed and Specialized segments.

 

 


1  Net of eliminations, Flatbed Solutions revenue was $160.9 million and Specialized Solutions revenue was $216.0 million.

2  See Non-GAAP Measures for more information regarding Acquisition Adjusted measures.

Net income in the second quarter of 2018 improved significantly to $13.5 million, or $0.20  per share, compared to a net loss of $(4.1) million, or $(0.15) per share, in the second quarter of 2017. This also compares to Acquisition Adjusted net loss in the second quarter of 2017 of $(1.3) million.

 

Adjusted EBITDA  increased 91% to $46.3 million compared to $24.3 million in the second quarter of 2017 and compared to Acquisition Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2017 of $41.6 million.  Both the significant improvements in net loss and Adjusted EBITDA were primarily driven by the aforementioned acquisitions.

 

Segment Results

Flatbed Solutions - Flatbed Solutions revenue in the second quarter of 2018 increased 87% to $162.2 million1 compared to $86.9 million in the year-ago quarter. This was driven by the acquisition of TSH & Co. on December 1, 2017, as well as a  13% increase in flatbed rate per mile and 7% growth in revenue per tractor.  Excluding the impact of acquisitions, rates were up 14% compared to the year-ago quarter. Operating income was $9.3 million, up 47% from $6.3 million in the second quarter of 2017.

 

Specialized Solutions - Specialized Solutions revenue in the second quarter of 2018 increased 95% to $218.4 million1 compared to $112.0 million in the year-ago quarter. The increase was driven by six specialized acquisitions of scale since May 2017, as well as a  10% increase in specialized rate per mile and 17% growth in revenue per tractor.  Excluding the impact of acquisitions, rates were up 5% compared to the year-ago quarter. Operating income was $7.1 million, up 55% from $4.6 million in the second quarter of 2017.

 

Increased 2018 Outlook

Daseke now expects revenue in 2018 to be approximately $1.55 billion (up from $1.35 billion prior estimate)  compared to $846.3 million in 2017, and Adjusted EBITDA to increase 85% to approximately $170 million ($150 million prior estimate)  compared to $91.9  million in 2017. Net replacement capital expenditures in 2018 are now expected to be approximately $90 million when including newly acquired companies..

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

This news release includes non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDAR and Acquisition Adjusted, revenue, net loss and EBITDA (Acquisition Adjusted Measures). Other companies in Daseke’s industry may define these non-GAAP measures differently than Daseke does, and as a result, it may be difficult to use these non-GAAP measures to compare the performance of those companies to Daseke’s performance. Daseke’s management does not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP and instead relies primarily on Daseke’s GAAP results and uses non-GAAP measures supplementally.

 

Daseke defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) plus (i) depreciation and amortization, (ii) interest expense, including other fees and charges associated with indebtedness, net of interest income, (iii) income taxes, (iv) acquisition-related transaction expenses (including due diligence costs, legal, accounting and other advisory fees and costs, retention and severance payments and financing fees and expenses), (v) stock-based compensation, (vi) non-cash impairments, and (vii) expenses related to the business combination that was consummated in February 2017 and related transactions. Daseke defines Adjusted EBITDAR as Adjusted EBITDA plus tractor operating lease charges, and free cash flow as Adjusted EBITDA less net capital expenditures (capital expenditures less proceeds from equipment sales). Daseke defines Acquisition Adjusted as (a) our actual revenue, net loss or Adjusted EBITDA, as applicable, for the applicable measurement period and (b) the actual revenue, net loss or Adjusted EBITDA, as applicable, of each company acquired in 2017 or 2018, for the period beginning January 1, 2017 and ending on its acquisition date, based on the company’s internal financial statements for the period prior to Daseke’s acquisition. These adjusted amounts (i) have not been prepared in accordance with the requirements of Regulation S-X or any other securities laws relating to the presentation of pro forma financial information, (ii) do not reflect any pro forma adjustments, (iii) are presented for informational purposes only, (iv) are not necessarily indicative of what our result of operations would

have been had such acquisitions been completed on January 1, 2017, and (v) do not purport to project our future operating results.

 

Daseke’s board of directors and executive management team use Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDAR and Acquisition Adjusted Measures as key measures of its performance and for business planning. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDAR and Acquisition Adjusted Measures assist them in comparing Daseke’s operating performance over various reporting periods on a consistent basis because they remove from Daseke’s operating results the impact of items that, in their opinion, do not reflect Daseke’s core operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA,  Adjusted EBITDAR and Acquisition Adjusted Measures also allows Daseke to more effectively evaluate its operating performance by allowing it to compare the results of operations against its peers without regard to its or its peers’ financing method or capital structure.

 

Adjusted EBITDAR is used to view operating results before lease charges as these charges can vary widely among trucking companies due to differences in the way that trucking companies finance their fleet acquisitions. Daseke’s method of computing Adjusted EBITDA is substantially consistent with that used in its debt covenants and also is routinely reviewed by its management for that purpose.

 

Daseke believes its presentation of Adjusted EBITDA,  Adjusted EBITDAR and Acquisition Adjusted Measures is useful because they provide investors and industry analysts the same information that Daseke uses internally for purposes of assessing its core operating performance. However, Adjusted EBITDA,  Adjusted EBITDAR and Acquisition Adjusted Measures are not substitutes for, or more meaningful than, net income (loss), cash flows from operating activities, operating income or any other measure prescribed by GAAP, and there are limitations to using non-GAAP measures such as Adjusted EBITDA,  Adjusted EBITDAR and Acquisition Adjusted Measures. Certain items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA,  Adjusted EBITDAR and Acquisition Adjusted Measures are significant components in understanding and assessing a company’s financial performance, such as a company’s cost of capital, tax structure and the historic costs of depreciable assets. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDAR and Acquisition Adjusted Measures should not be considered measures of the income generated by Daseke’s business or discretionary cash available to it to invest in the growth of its business.

 

Daseke’s board of directors and executive management team use free cash flow to assess the Company’s performance and ability to fund operations and make additional investments. Free cash flow represents the cash that its business generates from operations, before taking into account cash movements that are nonoperational. Daseke believes its presentation of free cash flow is useful because it is one of several indicators of Daseke’s ability to service debt, make investments and/or return capital to its stockholders. Daseke also believes that free cash flow is one of several benchmarks used by investors and industry analysts for comparison of performance in its industry, although Daseke’s measure of free cash flow may not be directly comparable to similar measures reported by other companies. Furthermore, free cash flow is not a substitute for, or more meaningful than, net income (loss), cash flows from operating activities, operating income or any other measure prescribed by GAAP, and there are limitations to using non-GAAP measures such as free cash flow. Accordingly, free cash flow should not be considered a measure of the income generated by Daseke’s business or discretionary cash available to it to invest in the growth of its business.

 

Daseke defines adjusted operating ratio as (a) total operating expenses (i) less fuel surcharges, acquisition related transaction expenses, non-cash impairment charges and withdrawn initial public

Page 4 of 15


 

Picture 3

 

 

offering-related expenses and (ii) further adjusted for the net impact of the step-up in basis resulting from acquisitions (such as increased depreciation and amortization expense), as a percentage of (b) total revenue excluding fuel surcharge revenue.

 

Daseke’s board of directors and executive management team view adjusted operating ratio, and its key drivers of revenue quality, growth, expense control and operating efficiency, as a very important measure of Daseke’s performance. Daseke believes fuel surcharge is often volatile and eliminating the impact of this source of revenue (by eliminating fuel surcharge from revenue and by netting fuel surcharge against fuel expense) affords a more consistent basis for comparing its results of operations between periods. Daseke also believes excluding acquisition-related transaction expenses, additional depreciation and amortization expenses as a result of acquisitions, non-cash impairments and withdrawn initial public offering-related expenses enhances the comparability of its performance between periods.

 

Daseke believes its presentation of adjusted operating ratio is useful because it provides investors and industry analysts the same information that Daseke uses internally for purposes of assessing its core operating profitability. However, adjusted operating ratio is not a substitute for, or more meaningful than, operating ratio, operating margin or any other measure derived solely from GAAP measures, and there are limitations to using non-GAAP measures such as adjusted operating ratio. You can find the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the nearest comparable GAAP measures in the Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures tables below. We have not reconciled non-GAAP forward looking measures to their corresponding GAAP measures because certain items that impact these measures are unavailable or cannot be reasonably predicted without unreasonable efforts.
