DYCOM INDUSTRIES, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIESRECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURESTO COMPARABLE GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (CONTINUED)

Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). In the Company’s quarterly results releases, trend schedules, conference calls, slide presentations, and webcasts, it may use or discuss Non-GAAP financial measures, as defined by Regulation G of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company believes that the presentation of certain Non-GAAP financial measures in these materials provides information that is useful to investors because it allows for a more direct comparison of the Company’s performance for the period reported with the Company’s performance in prior periods. The Company cautions that Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the Company’s reported GAAP results. Management defines the Non-GAAP financial measures used as follows:

  • Non-GAAP Organic Contract Revenues - contract revenues from businesses that are included for the entire period in both the current and prior year periods, excluding contract revenues from storm restoration services. Non-GAAP Organic Contract Revenue change percentage is calculated as the change in Non-GAAP Organic Contract Revenues from the comparable prior year period divided by the comparable prior year period Non-GAAP Organic Contract Revenues. Management believes Non-GAAP Organic Contract Revenues is a helpful measure for comparing the Company’s revenue performance with prior periods.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA - net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, gain on sale of fixed assets, stock-based compensation expense, and certain non-recurring items. Management believes Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA is a helpful measure for comparing the Company’s operating performance with prior periods as well as with the performance of other companies with different capital structures or tax rates.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income (Loss) - GAAP net income before the non-cash amortization of the debt discount and the related tax impact, certain tax impacts resulting from vesting and exercise of share-based awards, and certain non-recurring items. Management believes Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income (Loss) is a helpful measure for comparing the Company’s operating performance with prior periods.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted Earnings (Loss) per Common Share and Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted Shares - Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income (Loss) divided by Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted Shares outstanding. Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted Shares used in the computation of Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted Earnings (Loss) per Common Share is adjusted for common stock equivalents related to share-based awards in where their effect would be anti-dilutive.

Management excludes or adjusts each of the items identified below from Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted Earnings (Loss) per Common Share:

  • Non-cash amortization of debt discount on 2021 Convertible Notes - The Company’s 0.75% convertible senior notes due September 2021 (the “2021 Convertible Notes”) were allocated between debt and equity components. The difference between the principal amount and the carrying amount of the liability component of the 2021 Convertible Notes represents a debt discount. The debt discount was amortized over the term of the 2021 Convertible Notes but did not result in periodic cash interest payments. The Company excludes the non-cash amortization of the debt discount from its Non-GAAP financial measures because it believes it is useful to analyze the component of interest expense for the 2021 Convertible Notes that would be paid in cash. The exclusion of the non-cash amortization from the Company’s Non-GAAP financial measures provides management with a consistent measure for assessing financial results.
  • Loss on debt extinguishment - During the quarter ended May 1, 2021, the Company recognized a loss on debt extinguishment of $0.1 million in connection with the amendment and restatement of its credit agreement maturing in April 2026. Management believes excluding the loss on debt extinguishment from the Company’s Non-GAAP financial measures assists investors’ overall understanding of the Company’s current financial performance and provides management with a consistent measure for assessing the current and historical financial results.
  • Tax impact of the vesting and exercise of share-based awards - In fiscal 2022, the Company excluded certain tax impacts resulting from the vesting and exercise of share-based awards. For comparability to other companies in the industry, the Company no longer excludes these tax impacts from its Non-GAAP measures beginning with the results for the first quarter of fiscal 2023.
  • Tax impact of pre-tax adjustments - The tax impact of pre-tax adjustments reflects the Company’s estimated tax impact of specific adjustments and the effective tax rate used for financial planning for the applicable period.

Notes

 

1 Includes stock-based compensation expense of $3.1 million and $3.7 million for the quarters ended April 30, 2022 and May 1, 2021, respectively.

2 Includes pre-tax interest expense for non-cash amortization of the debt discount associated with the 2021 Convertible Notes of $0.7 million for the quarter ended May 1, 2021.

3 During the quarter ended May 1, 2021, the Company recognized a loss on debt extinguishment of $0.1 million in connection with the amendment and restatement of its credit agreement maturing in April 2026.

4 The quarter ended April 30, 2022 includes income tax benefits of $2.5 million, or $0.09 per common share diluted, for the vesting and exercise of share-based awards, and $1.7 million, or $0.05 per common share diluted, for tax credits related to a tax filing for a prior year. The quarter ended May 1, 2021 includes income tax benefits of $2.6 million, or $0.09 per common share diluted, for the vesting and exercise of share-based awards.

5 In fiscal 2022, the Company excluded certain tax impacts from the vesting and exercise of share-based awards when calculating Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income (Loss). For comparability to other companies in the industry, the Company no longer excludes these tax impacts from its Non-GAAP measures beginning with the results for the first quarter of fiscal 2023. As there are no Non-GAAP adjustments for the first quarter of fiscal 2023, Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income (Loss) for the quarter ended April 30, 2022 equals GAAP net income (loss).

As outlined in footnote 4 above, income tax benefits for the vesting and exercise of share-based awards for the year ago period were $2.6 million, or $0.09 per common share diluted. These amounts were excluded from the calculation of Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Loss in the year ago period. Inclusion of these tax impacts in the calculation would have resulted in Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income of $1.4 million, or $0.05 per common share diluted, in the year ago period.

6 For the quarter ended May 1, 2021, shares used in the calculation of GAAP diluted earnings per common share include the dilutive impact of common stock equivalents related to share-based awards. For the calculation of Non-GAAP Adjusted Loss per Common Share, common stock equivalents related to share-based awards are excluded as their effect would be anti-dilutive.
