Exhibit 99.1
Construction Partners, Inc. Announces Fiscal 2020 Third Quarter Results
Company Raises FY 2020 Net Income Outlook and Lowers Revenue
DOTHAN, AL, August 7, 2020 Construction Partners, Inc. (NASDAQ: ROAD) (the “Company”), a vertically integrated civil infrastructure company specializing in the construction and maintenance of roadways across five southeastern states, today reported financial and operating results for its third fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2020. Results for the quarter included revenues of $217.0 million, gross profit of $36.5 million, net income of $15.7 million, and adjusted EBITDA(1) of $31.9 million.

Charles E. Owens, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are pleased with our strong profitability in the third quarter, despite lower revenues. Our solid results were driven primarily by vertical integration synergies, lower costs of fuel, effective utilization of crews and equipment, a disciplined project bidding strategy and pricing of our integrated products.

Owens continued, “As an essential business engaged in critical infrastructure in each state within our footprint, we have continued to operate without significant delays related to state and local shelter-in-place orders. The resiliency of our employees and the effectiveness of our safety protocols have positioned us to effectively manage pandemic-related challenges in our day-to-day operations. Notwithstanding current top-line pressure from COVID-19 and its related effects in certain of our markets, we remain optimistic about the long-term prospects of our business and industry.”

Project backlog at June 30, 2020 was $651.2 million, compared to $579.1 million at March 31, 2020 and $581.1 million at June 30, 2019.

Revised Fiscal Year 2020 Outlook

The Company has revised its outlook for fiscal year 2020 with regard to revenue, net income and Adjusted EBITDA, as follows:

Revenue of $810 million to $820 million

Net income of $36 million to $38 million

Adjusted EBITDA (1) of $92.0 million to $94.5 million

Ned N. Fleming, III, the Company’s Executive Chairman, stated, “This was an excellent quarter, especially given the current economic and COVID-19 backdrop. The team has successfully driven operational efficiencies, generating profitability and cash flow. The entire CPI team has exemplified a commitment to safety during this pandemic, and we remain vigilant in putting the health and welfare of our employees, as well as the communities in which we work, as first priority. With our geographically diverse footprint across the Southeast and vertically integrated business model, we believe that we are well-positioned to continue to execute on our proven strategy for long-term growth and value creation.”

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA represents net income before, as applicable from time to time, (i) interest expense, net, (ii) provision (benefit) for income taxes, (iii) depreciation, depletion and amortization of long-lived assets, (iv) equity-based compensation expense and (v) certain management fees and expenses, and excludes income recognized in connection with a legal settlement between certain of the Company’s subsidiaries and a third party that did not directly relate to the Company’s business and that the Company does not expect to reoccur. Adjusted EBITDA Margin represents Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues for each period. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are supplemental measures of our operating performance that are neither required by, nor presented in accordance with, GAAP. These measures should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of our operating performance. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin as key performance indicators, and we believe they are measures frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other parties to evaluate companies in our industry. These measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.

Our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin may not be comparable to similarly named measures reported by other companies. Potential differences may include differences in capital structures, tax positions and the age and book depreciation of intangible and tangible assets.

The following tables present a reconciliation of net income, the most directly comparable measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, to Adjusted EBITDA, and the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA Margin for each of the periods presented:
