DIRTT Reports First Quarter 2014 Results

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- DIRTT Environmental Solutions Ltd. ("DIRTT" or the "Company") (TSX:DRT), a leading technology-enabled designer, manufacturer and installer of fully customized, prefabricated interiors, today announced its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2014.

The following financial information should be read in conjunction with the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements and management's discussion and analysis for the three months ended March 31, 2014, which will be available at www.sedar.com and http://ir.dirtt.net/financial-reports/.

This news release contains references to Canadian dollars and United States ("US") dollars. Canadian dollars are referred to as "$" and US dollars are referred to as "US$".

Selected Highlights

Highlights for the first quarter of 2014 include:

--  Revenue increasing by $10.1 million to $40.5 million or 33.3% over Q1
    2013; 
--  Improvement in adjusted gross profit percentage (see "Non-IFRS
    Measures") by 9.8% from 33.7% to 43.5% over Q1 2013; 
--  The signing of five significant projects totalling more than $12.0
    million, which are expected to be substantially completed in 2014; 
--  Introduction of several new innovative solutions, including the Enzo(TM)
    Approach that enables increased flexibility, enhances aesthetic appeal,
    and is fully compatible with DIRTT's existing solutions. The Enzo
    Approach and other innovations provide the opportunity to increase
    market penetration in all verticals, and are particularly compelling in
    healthcare and residential; and 
--  Adoption of an Employee Share Purchase Plan ("ESPP") to be launched in
    the second quarter of 2014. 

"Our first quarter results show both improvement over a weaker quarter a year ago and the leverage in our business as growing revenue translates into even greater improvements in margins," said Scott Jenkins, President of DIRTT. "We generated these excellent results, in part, by delivering strong sales performance through the historically slower holiday season, further penetrating markets outside of North America, and by recognizing approximately one-third of the revenue from the $12 million in contracts we announced at the beginning of the quarter."

Revenue

Revenue increased by $10.1 million or 33.3% in the three months ended March 31, 2014 compared with the same period in 2013. The increase was mainly due to a general improvement in business levels in the period, resulting from a higher than normal number of project orders received late in the fourth quarter of 2013, during the traditionally slower holiday season, which drove strong revenue early in the first quarter of 2014.

The Company experienced strong momentum in many markets, including a growing presence in the Middle East. One of DIRTT's US Distribution Partners ("DP"), whose primary market is Saudi Arabia, brought in $4.3 million (March 31, 2013 - $0.5 million) of revenue for DIRTT for healthcare-related projects.

As a significant amount of DIRTT's revenue is generated by the US market, the Company also benefitted from the strengthening of the US dollar during the current quarter.

Included in the total revenue reported for the three months ended March 31, 2014, was approximately one-third of the previously announced $12.0 million of significant projects for leading players in the energy, insurance and healthcare sectors that are scheduled to deliver through 2014 and into 2015.

Adjusted Gross Profit

Adjusted gross profit as a percentage of revenue increased by 9.8% from 33.7% to 43.5% in the three months ended March 31, 2014 compared with the same period in 2013. The increase was due to greater efficiencies driven by higher overall volumes in the Company's production facilities, as well as by the fact that monthly revenue levels were relatively steady during the quarter. Higher production volumes enable better absorption of fixed costs included in cost of goods sold, including facilities costs and indirect labour costs. Consistent manufacturing throughput throughout the quarter also contributes to stronger gross profit, as this allows for more efficient operations over the period versus significant fluctuations in monthly manufacturing volumes. The strengthening of the US dollar also contributed to stronger adjusted gross profit in the quarter as the positive impact on US dollar revenue exceeded the negative impact on US dollar-based production costs.

Selling, General and Administrative ("SG&A") Expenses

SG&A expenses increased by $3.5 million or 28.1% in the three months ended March 31, 2014 compared with the same period in 2013. The most significant change can be attributed directly to sales-related efforts as salaries and benefits and commission expense for internal sales representatives and industry specific experts increased by $1.3 million and $0.7 million, respectively. These costs reflect personnel additions focused on generating and supporting higher business volumes, and are consistent with the use of proceeds as outlined in DIRTT's prospectus filed in respect of its initial public offering (the "IPO"). Included in the $1.3 million increase in salaries and benefits is $0.3 million in accrued bonuses for senior management in accordance with the Board-approved 2014 bonus pool. Higher commission costs are in line with the higher revenue volumes in the current quarter. Other increases in SG&A in the current quarter included travel and marketing expenses of $0.5 million, depreciation expense of $0.4 million, professional services fees of $0.2 million, public company reporting fees of $0.1 million, insurance expense of $0.1 million and $0.2 million in other miscellaneous items. The increase in professional service fees and insurance expense relates to DIRTT being a public company. The strengthening of the US dollar contributed to the overall increase in SG&A across the organization in the current quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA increased by $4.1 million in the three months ended March 31, 2014 compared with the same period in 2013. The increase was mainly due to the $10.1 million improvement in revenue, and the resulting improved adjusted gross profit percentage which grew from 33.7% to 43.5%. These amounts were partially offset by increased SG&A of $3.5 million for the reasons discussed above.

Finance Costs

Finance costs decreased by $0.7 million in the three months ended March 31, 2014 compared with the same period in 2013. Finance costs for the three months ended March 31, 2014 were comprised of $0.3 million non-cash and $0.3 million cash compared to $0.9 million and $0.4 million, respectively, for the same period in 2013. In November 2013, upon completion of the IPO, the Class A preferred shares of DIRTT and the convertible notes of DIRTT issued in June 2012 were converted into common shares of DIRTT and as a result there were no accretion or accrued interest amounts reported during the first quarter of 2014 related to those items. Upon completion of the IPO, the Company also repaid US$10.0 million of the original principal US$20.0 million of convertible notes of DIRTT issued in December 2012 ("December 2012 Notes"). Under the terms of the note purchase agreement on the remaining US$10.0 million principal portion of the December 2012 Notes, the interest rate increased from 8% to 14% (12% cash and 2% non-cash) effective March 7, 2014.

Outlook

Construction is a major global industry and consists of building new structures, making additions and modifications to existing structures, as well as conducting maintenance, repair and leasehold improvements on existing structures. The total US construction market was US$900 billion in 2013, of which US$562 billion was attributable to non-residential building (Source: US Census Bureau). This includes both new building and renovation projects. Total US non-residential construction spending is forecasted to grow to US$714 billion in 2017 (Source: FMI US Markets Construction Overview 2014). DIRTT believes conventional construction activities are fraught with challenges including cost overruns, quality issues and time delays and increasingly organizations are looking for a better way to build out their interior spaces, whether for new buildings or renovations. DIRTT's increasing roster of repeat clients is a strong testament to the benefits of technology-enabled prefabricated solutions.

The Company's growth strategy consists of five key areas: (1) increase penetration of existing markets by providing continued support and increased investment to existing DPs throughout North America; (2) continue to invest in its proprietary ICE® 3D design, configuration and manufacturing software ("ICE" or "ICE Software")and new innovative interior construction solutions; (3) capitalize on recent and continued investment in new industry verticals such as healthcare; (4) capitalize on recent and continued investment alongside new international DPs such as the Middle East; and (5) penetrate new industries such as the hospitality and residential sectors.

DIRTT believes its solutions are a superior alternative to conventional construction in all sectors of the construction industry, and that a continued increase in construction activity can be expected to result in an ongoing improvement in revenue. DIRTT plans to invest additional resources, including the further development of ICE and the development of new DIRTT solutions and test projects, in order to pursue further opportunities in healthcare, education and government, and new opportunities in the hospitality and residential sectors of the construction industry. The Company's product development team has been, and will continue to be, expanded to address industry specific challenges and opportunities.

In the first quarter of 2014, adverse weather conditions affected businesses across much of North America. On a month-by-month basis, revenue was stronger earlier in the quarter, tailing off toward quarter end. The Company expects there could be significant variability in monthly revenue in the second quarter of 2014 as the impact of the adverse weather conditions experienced in the first quarter fully play out. The Company believes regular business activities on the part of clients, including placing orders, were impacted or delayed, potentially significantly. Prospects for growth in Canada and the US remain positive and management believes each country has the potential to recover fairly promptly.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At March 31, 2014, the Company had $30.3 million in cash and cash equivalents compared with $34.4 million at December 31, 2013.

Management believes current cash on hand, available credit facilities, and cash flow from operations will be sufficient to meet working capital requirements as well as financial obligations. In addition, DIRTT generally requires a 50% deposit on all orders which also provides additional up-front working capital. Exceptions are US government orders or special contractual situations.

As at March 31, 2014, DIRTT has a US$18.0 million revolving operating facility. DIRTT currently has sufficient productive capacity to satisfy near-term growth.

Looking forward through 2014, management expects to make continued investments in product and software development to further expand the Company's solutions, such as the Enzo Approach, as well as in certain manufacturing equipment to support this development. Management also expects to further invest in its existing display areas, called Green Learning Centers ("GLCs"), to ensure that each location is showcasing the latest DIRTT solutions. DIRTT is investing in a new GLC in Toronto, Ontario, to better serve and support the significant market in Central Canada. The Company is also completing the first phase of leasehold improvements to its manufacturing facility in Savannah, Georgia to improve its functionality in the sales and marketing process.

Non-IFRS Measures

Adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross profit %, EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA are non-IFRS measures used by management to assess performance and financial condition. Consequently, they do not have a standard meaning as prescribed by IFRS, and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented and calculated by other companies. DIRTT believes that the non-IFRS measures are useful supplemental measures that may assist investors in assessing the financial performance and the cash anticipated to be generated by DIRTT's business. The non-IFRS measures should not be considered as the sole measure of DIRTT's performance and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, analysis of the financial statements. Please refer to the Company's management's discussion and analysis for three months ended March 31, 2014 for a definition and reconciliation of the non-IFRS measures used herein.
