Bruce Thames, Thermon's President and Chief Executive Officer said, "Thermon has always been a company that prioritizes health and safety, and that culture has never been more valuable than in today's environment. As a supplier to critical infrastructure, we continue to operate and serve our customers despite the significant and rapid changes in the global economy due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In response to lower demand in our end-markets, we have proactively taken actions to reduce our run-rate costs, enhance our liquidity position and ensure the continued strength of our balance sheet for the coming year. I am proud of how our employees have responded to the current challenges while exemplifying our values of care, commitment and collaboration every day. Our balance sheet is strong, and we expect to continue to deliver industry leading innovation and technology while generating positive free cash flow during the next twelve months."

During Q4 2020, the Company generated revenue of $88.4 million versus $114.2 million in Q4 2020, a decrease of $25.8 million or 23%. During Q4 2020, new facility construction (or "Greenfield") and facility maintenance, repair and operations and upgrade or expansion ("MRO/UE") activity from our legacy heat tracing business accounted for approximately 40% and 60% of revenue, respectively. Gross margin during Q4 2020 was 40.3% compared to 39.4% in Q4 2019. Gross margins were negatively impacted during the quarter by a one-time adjustment related to operational execution for $3.5 million, representing a 390 basis point impact to Q4 2020 gross margins.

Q4 2020 total orders were $90.5 million versus $105.7 million in Q4 2019, a decrease of $15.2 million or 14%. Q4 2020 backlog of $105.7 million represents a $14.3 million, or 12%, decrease as compared to Q4 2019 backlog of $120.0 million.

Q4 2020 net loss attributable to Thermon and GAAP earnings per share ("GAAP EPS") were $3.0 million and $(0.09) per fully diluted common share, respectively, compared to net income of $6.8 million and $0.20 per fully diluted common share, respectively, in Q4 2019. After taking into account certain one-time charges and the impact of intangible amortization (see table, Reconciliation of Net Income attributable to Thermon to Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS), the Company generated Adjusted Net Income in Q4 2020 of $0.4 million and Adjusted EPS of $0.01 per fully diluted common share compared to $10.5 million and $0.32 per fully diluted common share, respectively, in Q4 2019. Adjusted EBITDA was $9.2 million in Q4 2020 as compared to $21.7 million in Q4 2019, a decrease of $12.5 million or 58% (see table, Reconciliation of Net Income attributable to Thermon to Adjusted EBITDA).

In Fiscal 2020, the Company generated revenue of $383.5 million compared to $412.6 million in Fiscal 2019, a decrease of $29.1 million or 7%. Gross margin during Fiscal 2020 was 42.1% compared to 42.6% in Fiscal 2019.





Our mix of Greenfield and MRO/UE sales was 40% and 60% in Fiscal 2020 compared to 49% and 51% in Fiscal 2019, respectively. Fiscal 2020 orders were $365.4 million versus $377.4 million in Fiscal 2019, a decrease of $12.0 million or 3%.

Fiscal 2020 net income attributable to Thermon and GAAP EPS were $11.9 million and $0.36 per fully diluted common share, respectively, compared to $22.8 million and $0.69 per fully diluted common share, respectively, in Fiscal 2019. After taking into account certain one-time charges and the impact of intangible amortization (see table, Reconciliation of Net Income attributable to Thermon to Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS), the Company generated Adjusted Net Income in Fiscal 2020 of $24.8 million and Adjusted EPS of $0.75 per fully diluted common share compared $39.2 million and $1.19 per fully diluted common share, respectively, during Fiscal 2019. Adjusted EBITDA was $64.3 million in Fiscal 2020 as compared to $83.5 million in Fiscal 2019, a decrease of $19.2 million or 23%.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Disclosure in this release of "Adjusted EPS," "Adjusted EBITDA," "Adjusted Net Income" and "Free cash flow" which are "non-GAAP financial measures" as defined under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), are intended as supplemental measures of our financial performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). "Adjusted Net Income" and "Adjusted fully diluted earnings per share" (or "Adjusted EPS") represents net income attributable to Thermon before costs related to the consolidation of our operating footprint in Canada, acceleration of unamortized debt costs, the tax benefit from income tax rate reductions in certain foreign jurisdictions, amortization of intangible assets and the income tax effect on any non-tax adjustments, per fully-diluted common share in the case of Adjusted EPS. "Adjusted EBITDA" represents net income attributable to Thermon before interest expense (net of interest income), income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense, stock-based compensation expense, income attributable to non-controlling interests and costs related to the consolidation of our operating footprint in Canada. "Free cash flow" represents cash provided by operating activities less cash used for the purchase of property, plant and equipment, net of sales of rental equipment and proceeds from sales of land and buildings.

We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are meaningful to our investors to enhance their understanding of our financial performance and are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties to compare our performance with the performance of other companies that report Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, or Adjusted Net Income. Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income should be considered in addition to, not as substitutes for, income from operations, net income, net income per share and other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP. We provide Free cash flow as a measure of our liquidity. Our calculation of Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Free cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. For a description of how Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Free cash flow are calculated and reconciliations to the corresponding GAAP measures, see the sections of this release titled "Reconciliation of Net Income attributable to Thermon to Adjusted EBITDA"





"Reconciliation of Net Income attributable to Thermon to Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS" and "Reconciliation of Cash Provided by Operating Activities to Free Cash Flow."

Forward-Looking Statements

This release may include forward-looking statements within the meaning of the U.S. federal securities laws in addition to historical information. These forward-looking statements are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements regarding our industry, business strategy, plans, goals and expectations concerning our market position, future operations, margins, profitability, capital expenditures, liquidity and capital resources and other financial and operating information. When used herein, the words "anticipate," "assume," "believe," "budget," "continue," "contemplate," "could," "should" "estimate," "expect," "intend," "may," "plan," "possible," "potential," "predict," "project," "will," "would," "future," and similar terms and phrases are intended to identify forward-looking statements in this release. Forward-looking statements reflect our current expectations regarding future events, results or outcomes. These expectations may or may not be realized. Some of these expectations may be based upon assumptions, data or judgments that prove to be incorrect. In addition, our business and operations involve numerous risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control, which could result in our expectations not being realized or otherwise materially affect our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.

Actual events, results and outcomes may differ materially from our expectations due to a variety of factors. Although it is not possible to identify all of these factors, they include, among others, (i) the outbreak of the novel strain of coronavirus (COVID-19); (ii) general economic conditions and cyclicality in the markets we serve; (iii) future growth of energy, chemical processing and power generation capital investments; (iv) our ability to operate successfully in foreign countries; (v) our ability to deliver existing orders within our backlog; (vi) our ability to effectively integrate THS product lines into our existing sales and market channels; (vii) the imposition of certain operating and financial restrictions contained in our debt agreements; (viii) tax liabilities and changes to tax policy; (ix) our ability to bid and win new contracts; (x) our ability to successfully develop and improve our products and successfully implement new technologies; (xi) competition from various other sources providing similar heat tracing and process heating products and services, or alternative technologies, to customers; (xii) our revenue mix; (xiii) our ability to acquire smaller value added companies; (xiv) changes in relevant currency exchange rates; (xv) impairment of goodwill and other intangible assets; (xvi) our ability to attract and retain qualified management and employees, particularly in our overseas markets; (xvii) our ability to protect our trade secrets; (xviii) our ability to protect our intellectual property; (xix) our ability to protect data and thwart potential cyber-attacks; (xx) a material disruption at any of our manufacturing facilities; (xxi) our dependence on subcontractors and third-party suppliers; (xxii) our ability to profit on fixed-price contracts; (xxiii) our ability to achieve our operational initiatives; (xxiv) potential liability related to our products as well as the delivery of products and services; (xxv) our ability to comply with foreign anti-corruption laws; (xxvi) export control regulations or sanctions; (xxvii) changes in U.S. and foreign government administrative policy; (xxviii) geopolitical instability in Russia and Ukraine and related sanctions by the U.S. government; (xxix) our ability to comply with the complex and dynamic system of laws and regulations applicable to domestic and international operations, including U.S. government tariffs and the United Kingdom’s referendum vote; (xxx) environmental and health and safety laws and regulations as well as environmental liabilities; and (xxxi) climate change and related regulation of greenhouse gases. Any one of these factors or a combination of these factors could materially affect our future results of operations and could influence whether any forward-looking statements contained in this release ultimately prove to be accurate. For additional detail regarding the foregoing factors, and for detail regarding additional factors that have impacted or may impact our business and operations, see the information contained in Item 1A under the caption “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K and the discussion of risk factors contained in our subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Our forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance, and actual results and future performance may differ materially from those suggested in any forward-looking statements. We do not intend to update these statements unless we are required to do so under applicable securities laws.
