For the first nine months of the year, SNCL Engineering Services had a book-to-bill ratio of 1.2.
  • Resources restructuring: As per the July 22 announcement, the Company is advancing a number of options, including a combination of potential Oil & Gas-related divestitures, closures and the possible transition of Resources engineering services activities to SNCL Engineering Services, and will provide an update as decisions are made. The Company also continues to run off the LSTK construction projects included in its backlog.
  • Cost reduction program: The Company will realize over $100 million in cost savings by year-end 2019 and remains on target to achieving an annual run-rate of $250 million in cost savings in 2020.

President and CEO Commentary

Ian L. Edwards, President and CEO of SNC-Lavalin Group Inc., made the following comments in relation to the Company's 2019 third quarter results:

"We are committed to delivering on what we say we will do, and producing consistent results, as we execute on our new strategic direction. It is still early days, but the decisions we made in July – to exit lump-sum turnkey construction contracting and reorganize the Company to focus on our high-performing Engineering Services business – are demonstrating results, and I am encouraged by our progress.

"Revenue, backlog, and Segment EBIT for SNCL Engineering Services have all increased year-over-year, with growth in EDPM and Infrastructure Services. Between July and mid-October, we announced seven new contract wins. We continue to reduce our LSTK construction backlog and are laser-focused on managing the risks.

"We also significantly strengthened our balance sheet in Q3 2019. We used the $2.9 billion in net proceeds from the sale of 10.01% of Highway 407 ETR, to mainly reduce our leverage. As a result, our balance sheet is strong, with $939 million in cash and cash equivalents, and considerably reduced debt. As we improve on EBITDA and free cash flow generation, our goal is to reduce our leverage ratio. Our solid financial position and new strategic direction provides us with a clear path forward, focused on generating consistent earnings and cash flow and surfacing value for our shareholders."

Third Quarter Results

The Company reported an IFRS net income attributable to SNC-Lavalin shareholders of $2.8 billion, or $15.70 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2019, compared with $120.7 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, for the corresponding period in 2018. The Company's third quarter 2019 net income attributable to SNC-Lavalin shareholders included a net gain on the disposal of a 10.01% stake of Highway 407 ETR of $2.6 billion, or $14.74 per diluted share. The third quarter of 2019 also included an amortization of intangible assets related to business combinations of $32.8 million (after taxes) and restructuring costs of $15.2 million (after taxes).

Adjusted net income from E&C(1) in the third quarter of 2019 increased to $165.3 million, or $0.94 per diluted share, compared with $124.3 million, or $0.71 per diluted share, for the corresponding period in 2018. The higher adjusted net income from E&C(1) in the third quarter of 2019 was mainly due to the 35.5% higher Segment EBIT(7) contribution from SNCL Engineering Services from E&C and the recognition of $82.7 million ($0.47 per diluted share) in income tax recoveries on capital losses, following the capital gain on disposal of a 10.01% stake in Highway 407 ETR, partially offset by a loss from Resources projects in SNCL Projects.

SNCL Engineering Services

Revenue from SNCL Engineering Services, which includes EDPM, Nuclear, Infrastructure Services, and Capital, totaled $1.6 billion for the third quarter of 2019, an increase of 11.5%, compared to the third quarter of 2018, mainly due to revenue increases of 43.4% and 6.2% in Infrastructure Services and EDPM, respectively.

The SNCL Engineering Services business recorded strong Segment EBIT(7) of $252.9 million, an increase of 36.8%, compared to the third quarter of 2018, and representing a 16.0% Segment EBIT ratio (11.7% excluding Capital), due to increased profitability in all segments.

SNCL Projects

Revenue from SNCL Projects, which includes LSTK construction contracting in Infrastructure and Resources segments, totaled $850.6 million for the third quarter of 2019, a decrease of 25.7% compared to the third quarter of 2018. This was mainly due to the continuing backlog run off of certain major LSTK construction projects, coupled with no new bidding by the Company in this market segment.

SNCL Projects recorded a negative Segment EBIT(7) totaling $45.0 million in the third quarter of 2019. This was mainly due to three factors; unfavorable reforecasts on certain Resources LSTK construction projects, continuing underperformance of the Oil & Gas production and processing facilities, and overhead costs that are in the midst of being right-sized to align with a lower level of activity.

Backlog and Bookings

The Company's backlog totaled $15.6 billion as at September 30, 2019, 3.1% higher than at the end of September 2018. The backlog for SNCL Engineering Services increased by 9.8% to $11.4 billion, while SNCL Projects backlog continues to decrease, as a result of the Company's decision to cease bidding on LSTK construction contracts. SNC Engineering Services total bookings for the third quarter of 2019 amounted to $1.8 billion. Contracts bookings for SNCL Engineering Services amounted to $5.5 billion for the first nine months of 2019, representing a 1.2 book-to-bill ratio, with $2.8 billion of bookings in the EDPM segment and $2.1 billion in the Infrastructure Services segment.

LSTK Construction Projects Update

The Company continued to run off the LSTK construction projects in its SNCL Projects backlog, which totaled $3.2 billion at the end of the third quarter of 2019, down from $3.4 billion as at June 30, 2019. Most of this backlog represents light rail transit systems projects for which the Company has a long track record of executing successfully. The Company expects to complete most of its remaining LSTK construction projects by the end of 2021.

Financial Position and Cash Flows

The Company continues to strengthen its balance sheet, using the $2.9 billion in net proceeds from the sale of 10.01% of the shares of Highway 407 ETR to repay debt and deleverage. The Company's revolving facility was repaid, along with $600 million of its CDPQ Loan and its $300 million unsecured bridge facility. As of September 30, 2019, the Company had $938.9 million of cash and cash equivalents, $1.2 billion of recourse debt and $0.4 billion of limited recourse debt, as well as $2.5 billion in unused capacity under its $2.6 billion committed revolving credit facility.

As at September 30, 2019, the net recourse debt to EBITDA ratio in accordance with the terms of the Company's Credit Agreement, as amended, was 3.4x.

Quarterly Dividend

The Board of Directors today declared a cash dividend of $0.02 per share, payable on November 28, 2019, to shareholders of record on November 14, 2019. This dividend is an "eligible dividend" for income tax purposes.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures and Additional IFRS Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with IFRS. However, the following non-IFRS measures and additional IFRS measures are used by the Company: Adjusted net income from E&C, Adjusted diluted EPS from E&C, Adjusted net income from Capital, Adjusted diluted EPS from Capital, Adjusted consolidated diluted EPS, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA from E&C and Segment EBIT. Additional details for these non-IFRS measures and additional IFRS measures can be found below and in SNC-Lavalin's MD&A, which is available in the Investors section of the Company's website at www.snclavalin.com. Non-IFRS financial measures do not have any standardized meaning under IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Management believes that, in addition to conventional measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, these non-IFRS measures provide additional insight into the Company's financial results and certain investors may use this information to evaluate the Company's performance from period to period. However, these non-IFRS financial measures have limitations and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS.

(1) Adjusted net income (loss) from E&C is defined as net income (loss) attributable to SNC-Lavalin shareholders from E&C, excluding charges related to restructuring, right-sizing and other, acquisition-related costs and integration costs, as well as amortization of intangible assets related to business combinations, impairment of goodwill, impairment of intangible assets related to business combinations, the net expense for the 2012 class action lawsuits settlement and related legal costs, the GMP equalization expense, the gains (losses) on disposals of E&C businesses, the impact of U.S. corporate tax reform and the incremental financing costs related to the amendments to the CDPQ loan and other E&C financing arrangements in connection with the sale of 10.01% of the shares of Highway 407 ETR. E&C is defined in the Company's 2018 financial statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis. The term "Adjusted net income (loss) from E&C" does not have any standardized meaning as prescribed by IFRS. Therefore, it may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Management uses this measure as a more meaningful way to compare the Company's financial performance from period to period. Management believes that, in addition to conventional measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company's performance. See reconciliation below.


(2)
 Adjusted diluted EPS from E&C is defined as the adjusted net income (loss) from E&C divided by the diluted weighted average number of outstanding shares for the period.

(3) Adjusted net income from Capital is defined as net income attributable to SNC-Lavalin shareholders from Capital, excluding charges related to restructuring, right sizing and other, and the gains on disposals of Capital Investments.

(4) Adjusted diluted EPS from Capital is defined as the adjusted net income from Capital divided by the diluted weighted average number of outstanding shares for the period.

(5) Adjusted consolidated net income is defined as the adjusted net income (loss) from E&C plus the adjusted net income from Capital.

(6) Adjusted consolidated diluted EPS is defined as the adjusted net income (loss) from E&C plus the adjusted net income from Capital divided by the diluted weighted average number of outstanding shares for the period.

(7) Segment EBIT consists of revenues less i) direct cost of activities, ii) directly related selling, general and administrative expenses, and iii) corporate selling, general and administrative expenses that are allocated to segments. Expenses that are not allocated to the Company's segments include: certain corporate selling, general and administrative expenses that are not directly related to projects or segments, impairment loss arising from expected credit losses, gain (loss) arising on financial assets (liabilities) at fair value through profit or loss, restructuring costs, impairment of goodwill, impairment of intangible assets related to business combinations, acquisition-related costs and integration costs, amortization of intangible assets related to business combinations, the net expense for the 2012 class action lawsuits settlement and related legal costs, and the GMP equalization expense, as well as gains (losses) on disposals of E&C businesses and Capital investments. The term "Segment EBIT" does not have any standardized meaning under IFRS. Therefore, it may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Management uses this measure as a more meaningful way to compare the Company's financial performance from period to period. Management believes that, in addition to conventional measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company's performance.

(8) Adjusted EBITDA from E&C is defined herein as earnings from E&C before net financial expenses (income), income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and excludes charges related to restructuring, right-sizing and other, acquisition-related costs and integration costs, the net expense for the 2012 class action lawsuits settlement and related legal costs, the GMP equalization expense, as well as the gains (losses) on disposals of E&C businesses. The term "Adjusted EBITDA from E&C" does not have any standardized meaning under IFRS. Therefore, it may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Management uses this measure as a more meaningful way to compare the Company's financial performance from period to period. Management believes that, in addition to conventional measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company's performance.

* The Company's 2019 financial results incorporate the non-cash impact of IFRS 16, Leases ("IFRS 16"). Financial results for 2018 were not restated for the new accounting standard. If the Company excluded the adoption of IFRS 16, adjusted E&C EBITDA for the nine month period ended September 30, 2019 would have been approximately $97 million more negative ($33 million for the third quarter of 2019), and the net financial expenses would have been $17 million lower for the nine month period ended September 30, 2019 ($6 million for the third quarter of 2019), mainly offset by a lower EBIT for a similar amount.
