Mobile Mini Reports Q1'13 Results

TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Mobile Mini, Inc. (NASDAQ GS: MINI), the world's leading supplier of portable storage solutions, today reported actual and adjusted financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. Total revenues were $97.9 million and leasing revenues were $85.1 million, compared with $88.8 million and $78.4 million, respectively, for the same period last year. The Company's first quarter adjusted net income was $12.3 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, compared with $6.0 million, or $0.13, respectively, for the first quarter of 2012.

Adjusted EBITDA was $37.8 million for the first quarter of 2013, compared with $31.0 million for the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 38.6% for the first quarter of 2013, compared with 35.0% in the first quarter of 2012. The increase in profitability and margin reflects stronger utilization, higher yield including improved pricing, and leveraging of operating expenses.

First Quarter 2013 Highlights

  • Grew leasing revenues 8.4% year-over-year to $85.1 million, our highest first quarter level since the first quarter of 2009.
  • Improved yield 4.3% including an average rental rate increase of 1.6% versus the prior year.
  • Generated a 21.7% year-over-year increase in adjusted EBITDA.
  • Increased average fleet utilization to 60.2%, up 340 bps from the first quarter of 2012.
  • Delivered strong free cash flow of $26.1 million, after $0.5 million of net capex.

The Company posted its ninth consecutive quarter of comparable period growth in leasing revenues. The increase in units on rent was driven by stronger demand from both non-construction and construction end markets and resulted in continued year-over-year improvement in utilization. Yield rose 4.3% to an all-time first quarter high of $604. The nearly 22% gain in adjusted EBITDA and 360 basis point improvement in adjusted EBITDA margin over the first quarter of 2012 reflects stronger leasing volume and pricing coupled with disciplined cost controls. Finally, the Company continued to strengthen its financial position, generating positive free cash flow for the 21st consecutive quarter and reducing net debt by $30.9 million.

Erik Olsson, Mobile Mini's President and Chief Executive Officer commented, "The year started on a strong note. Looking ahead, we anticipate that we will continue to generate comparable period growth in leasing revenues through the balance of 2013 which, with our strong operating leverage, should translate into year-over-year EBITDA margin expansion. We see additional opportunity to increase our utilization as we more deeply penetrate our existing markets and expand into new ones. We have a great team of dedicated people focused on delivering outstanding service to our customers, and I am looking forward to working with them as we take Mobile Mini into its next phase of growth."
