2018 Outlook

The Company is raising its guidance for Full Year 2018 Gross Revenues, Net Revenues, Adjusted EPS and GAAP EPS, including the impact of acquisitions closed through July 31, 2018. The Company expects Gross Revenues will range from $390 million to $425 million, which represents an increase of 17% to 28% from 2017 Gross Revenues of $333 million. Net Revenues is expected to range from $312 million to $340 million, which represents an increase of 16% to 27% from 2017 Net Revenues of $268 million. The Company expects that Full Year 2018 Adjusted EPS will range from $3.04 per share to $3.35 per share, an increase of 28% to 41%. Furthermore, the Company expects that Full Year 2018 GAAP EPS will range from $2.29 per share to $2.57 per share. This guidance for Gross Revenues, Net Revenues, Adjusted EPS and GAAP EPS excludes anticipated acquisitions for the remainder of 2018.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Total Revenues and Net Revenues are not measures of financial performance under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Gross Revenues – GAAP include sub-consultant costs and other direct costs which are generally pass-through costs. Furthermore, Gross Revenues – GAAP eliminates intercompany revenues where the Company performed the service in lieu of using a third-party sub-consultant. Therefore, the Company believes that Total Revenues and Net Revenues, which are non-GAAP financial measures commonly used in our industry, provide a meaningful perspective on its business results. A reconciliation of gross revenues as reported in accordance with GAAP to Total Revenues and Net Revenues is provided at the end of this news release.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Management believes EBITDA, in addition to operating profit, net income and other GAAP measures, is a useful indicator of NV5’s financial and operating performance and its ability to generate cash flows from operations that are available for taxes, capital expenditures and debt service. A reconciliation of net income as reported in accordance with GAAP to EBITDA is provided at the end of this news release.

Adjusted earnings per diluted share data (“Adjusted EPS”) is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Adjusted EPS reflects adjustments to reported diluted earnings per share (“GAAP EPS”) data to eliminate amortization expense of intangible assets from acquisitions, net of tax benefits. As the Company continues its acquisition strategy, the growth in Adjusted EPS will likely increase at a greater rate than GAAP EPS as reported in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of GAAP EPS as reported in accordance with GAAP to Adjusted EPS is provided at the end of this news release.

NV5’s definition of Total Revenues, Net Revenues, EBITDA and Adjusted EPS may differ from other companies reporting similarly named measures. These measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP, such as contract revenues, net income and diluted earnings per share.
