DALLAS, Nov. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (NYSE: JEC) today announced its financial results for the fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 27, 2019.

  • Q4 2019 EPS1 of $0.16 and adjusted EPS of $1.48, up 29% on an adjusted basis year-over-year

  • FY19 revenue growth of 20% and pro forma net revenue growth of 11% 
  • Operating profit growth of 4% and adjusted EBITDA growth of 22% 
  • FY19 EPS1 of $2.09 and adjusted EPS of $5.05, up 30% on an adjusted basis year-over-year 
  • FY20 outlook initiated for $1,050 million to $1,150 million adjusted EBITDA2, representing double-digit growth for adjusted EBITDA and EPS2 versus FY19

Brand Launch Highlights:

  • Strategic transformation further strengthened by launch of new brand that focuses employees to redefine what is possible by embracing innovative thinking and exploration 
  • Celebrates Jacobs' inclusive and diverse perspectives; inspires employees to advance the communities where they live, work and play

Fiscal 2019 was a year of transformation and growth at Jacobs. The company updated its strategy and financial targets at its Investor Day in February, completed the divestiture of its Energy, Chemicals and Resources business in April, completed the acquisition of KeyW in June, and announced its acquisition of Wood's nuclear business in August. All of these actions are in line with the company's strategic focus in higher value solutions. Concurrent with its proactive portfolio transformation, Jacobs also made inroads in the investment in its people, culture and inclusion.

Jacobs launched its new brand globally today, culminating its transition from engineering and construction to a global technology-forward solutions company, resulting both in a planned name change for the company to Jacobs Solutions Inc. and an NYSE stock ticker symbol change to "J". Trading under this symbol will be effective Dec. 10, 2019. Jacobs' lines of business are also changing names to better reflect outcome-focused solutions for their customers; Aerospace, Technology and Nuclear is changing to Critical Mission Solutions, and Buildings, Infrastructure and Advanced Facilities is changing to People & Places Solutions. These name changes have no impact on reported financials, line of business leadership or customer relationships.

In a first for the company, the earnings call is taking place at its new London flagship office in the Cottons Centre, a Jacobs-designed office on the banks of the Thames. The new office features flexible workspace for up to 1,000 employees. This innovative office pilots many of Jacobs' digital consulting solutions, delivers some of the world's most iconic projects and is the catalyst for further expansion in Europe and the Middle East.

"Our team has demonstrated strong execution by exceeding our three-year revenue and operating profit guidance that was established at our inaugural investor day in 2016.  Our transformed portfolio is well aligned to major secular growth trends such as environmental resiliency, IT/OT convergence and national security. Today we embrace a future of infinite possibilities with a new brand that reflects who we are and where we are going. We are adopting a new tagline - Challenging today. Reinventing tomorrow. - to capture the shared passion, pride and drive of our people as we work with our clients and partners to solve some of the world's biggest challenges," said Chair and CEO Steve Demetriou. "And as we do so, our values continue to drive our behaviors, relationships and outcomes: We do things right. We challenge the accepted. We aim higher. We live inclusion."

Jacobs' CFO, Kevin Berryman, added, "It's clear the strategic actions we have taken are resulting in a high-performance culture with strong execution discipline. This is demonstrated by our fiscal 2019 financial results, including solid operating profit growth and achieving results at the high end of our original guidance, leading to double-digit adjusted EBITDA growth. During the fourth quarter, we opportunistically initiated a $250 million accelerated share repurchase program, culminating in more than $850 million in fiscal 2019 buy-backs.  We are initiating a fiscal 2020 outlook of $1.05 billion to $1.15 billion in adjusted EBITDA2 and are off to a strong start in achieving our 2021 revenue and profitability targets."

 

 

1Reflects continuing operations as reported in accordance with GAAP.

2Reconciliation of the adjusted EPS outlook and adjusted EBITDA outlook for the full fiscal year to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable efforts because the Company cannot predict with sufficient certainty all the components required to provide such reconciliation, including with respect to the costs and charges relating to transaction expenses, restructuring and integration to be incurred in fiscal 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

In this press release, the Company has included certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined in Regulation G promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release are net revenue, adjusted net earnings from continuing operations, adjusted EPS from continuing operations, adjusted operating profit and adjusted EBITDA.

Net revenue is calculated excluding pass-through revenue of the Company's People & Places Solutions segment from the Company's revenue from continuing operations. Adjusted net earnings from continuing operations, adjusted EPS from continuing operations and adjusted operating profit are non-GAAP financial measures that are calculated by (i) excluding the costs related to the 2015 restructuring activities, which included involuntary terminations, the abandonment of certain leased offices, combining operational organizations and the co-location of employees into other existing offices; and charges associated with our Europe, U.K. and Middle East region, which included write-offs on contract accounts receivable and charges for statutory redundancy and severance costs (collectively, the "2015 Restructuring and other items"); (ii) excluding costs and other charges associated with restructuring activities implemented in connection with the CH2M acquisition, the ECR divestiture, the KeyW acquisition and other related cost reduction initiatives, which included involuntary terminations, costs associated with co-locating Jacobs, KeyW and CH2M offices, separating physical locations of ECR and continuing operations, costs and expenses of the Integration Management Office and Separation Management Office, including professional services and personnel costs, costs and charges associated with the divestiture of joint venture interests to resolve potential conflicts arising from the CH2M acquisition, expenses relating to certain commitments and contingencies relating to discontinued operations of the CH2M business, charges associated with certain operations in India, which included write-offs on contract accounts receivable and other accruals, and similar costs and expenses (collectively referred to as the "Restructuring and other charges"); (iii) excluding transaction costs and other charges incurred in connection with closing of the KeyW and CH2M acquisitions, the pending acquisition of Wood Group's nuclear business, and sale of the ECR business (to the extent incurred prior to the closing), including advisor fees, change in control payments, costs and expenses relating to the registration and listing of Jacobs stock issued in connection with the CH2M acquisition, and similar transaction costs and expenses (collectively referred to as "transaction costs"); (iv) adding back amortization of intangible assets; (v) allocating to discontinued operations estimated stranded corporate costs that will be reimbursed or otherwise eliminated in connection with the sale of the ECR business; (vi) the reclassification of revenue under the Company's transition services agreement (TSA) included in other income for U.S. GAAP reporting purposes to SG&A and the exclusion of remaining unreimbursed costs associated with the TSA; (vii) allocating to discontinued operations estimated interest expense relating to long-term debt that was paid down with the proceeds of the ECR sale; (viii) the removal of fair value adjustments and dividend income related to the Company's investment in Worley stock and certain foreign currency revaluations relating to ECR sale proceeds in the 2019 period; (ix) the exclusion of a one-time favorable adjustment in the fiscal 2019 period associated with a reduction of deferred income taxes for permanently reinvested earnings from non-U.S. subsidiaries in connection with the sale of the ECR business; (x) excluding charges resulting from the revaluation of certain deferred tax assets/liabilities in connection with U.S. tax reform; (xi) adding back depreciation and amortization relating to the ECR business of the Company that was ceased as a result of the application of held-for-sale accounting; and (xii) other income tax adjustments. Adjustments to derive adjusted net earnings from continuing operations, adjusted EPS from continuing operations and adjusted operating profit are calculated on an after-tax basis. We believe that net revenue, adjusted net earnings from continuing operations, adjusted EPS from continuing operations, adjusted operating profit and adjusted EBITDA are useful to management, investors and other users of our financial information in evaluating the Company's operating results and understanding the Company's operating trends by excluding or adding back the effects of the items described above, the inclusion or exclusion of which can obscure underlying trends. Additionally, management uses such measures in its own evaluation of the Company's performance, particularly when comparing performance to past periods, and believes these measures are useful for investors because they facilitate a comparison of our financial results from period to period.

Adjusted EBITDA for prior periods is calculated by adding depreciation expense to adjusted operating profit from continuing operations.  For fiscal 2020 outlook, the Company calculated adjusted EBITDA by adding income tax expense, depreciation expense and interest expense, and deducting interest income from adjusted net earnings from continuing operations.

The Company provides non-GAAP measures to supplement U.S. GAAP measures, as they provide additional insight into the Company's financial results. However, non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation and are not in accordance with, or a substitute for, U.S. GAAP measures. In addition, other companies may define non-GAAP measures differently, which limits the ability of investors to compare non-GAAP measures of the Company to those used by our peer companies.

The following tables reconcile the components and values of U.S. GAAP revenue, net earnings from continuing operations, EPS from continuing operations, operating profit and revenue to the corresponding "adjusted" amounts. For the comparable periods presented below, such adjustments consist of amounts incurred in connection with the items described above. Amounts are shown in thousands, except for per-share data (note: earnings per share amounts may not add across due to rounding). Reconciliation of the adjusted EPS and adjusted EBITDA outlook for the full fiscal year to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable efforts because the Company cannot predict with sufficient certainty all the components required to provide such reconciliation (note: earnings per share amounts may not add across due to rounding).

Diluted Earnings Per Share from Continuing Operations, Diluted Earnings Per Share from Discontinued Operations and Diluted Earnings Per Share for GAAP EPS assume no dilution from stock compensation plans because Net Earnings from Continuing Operations attributable to Jacobs is a loss. However, because Non-GAAP add-backs and Non-GAAP Net Earnings from Continuing Operations attributable to Jacobs are income rather than losses, the dilution from stock compensation plans is considered in the weighted average diluted shares outstanding in the calculation of Non-GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share.
