By Article

Dear NESCO Customers, Friends, Vendors & Stakeholders –

It is important to try our best to stay healthy during this “new normal” & make it a part of our daily routines. The World Health Organization has recommended that adults have 30min/day of exercise; staying active is good for both the body & mind and helps with getting better sleep and maintaining overall health. Right now, there are so many FREE resources that you can utilize to help stay healthy and fit. We can all admit that it has been tough finding motivation to be active & getting adjusted without being able to physically be in the gym; however, programs are adjusting to the “new normal” and are making it much easier on us. Here are a few resources that many of us have found helpful:

  • Get Outside. Just because you’re practicing social distancing, doesn’t mean you’re stuck inside the house. Get outside – take a walk, go for a run, ride a bike with the family, work in the yard, etc. These are all great ways to stay active & feel good, while still following government orders. (Note: Please follow your local guidelines, regarding being outside)
  • At Home Workouts via Gyms:
    • Orangetheory Fitness at Home: 30 min workouts, released daily. Use what you have – no equipment required:
      • https://www.orangetheory.com/en-us/athome/
      • Fun Fact: Did you know Orangetheory Fort Wayne is supporting NESCO in our Bowl For Kids’ Sake fundraising efforts? Stay tuned for information on a benefit class, where all proceeds will go towards NESCO’s team goal, benefitting Big Brothers Big Sisters.

      • Running, Walking, Outdoor, Strength Training, Cycling, Yoga, Meditation, Stretching, Bootcamp, Etc.
      • Pro-Tip: download via the App Store, rather than online, to bypass inputting your credit card information.
    • Beachbody: Free 14 Day Trial to all programs.
      • Variety of programs offered.

NESCO Holdings, Inc. Closes Acquisition Of Specialty Equipment Rental Company Truck Utilities, Inc.

By Article, Press Release

NESCO HOLDINGS, INC. CLOSES ACQUISITION OF
SPECIALTY EQUIPMENT RENTAL COMPANY TRUCK UTILITIES, INC.

Immediately Accretive Transaction Facilitates Deeper Penetration of
Minnesota, North Dakota and Kansas Markets

FORT WAYNE, IN., November 4, 2019 – Nesco Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: NSCO, “Nesco” or the “Company”), a leading provider of specialty rental equipment to the electric utility, telecom and rail end-markets, today announced that it has closed the previously announced acquisition of Minnesota-based Truck Utilities, Inc., a specialty rentals, service and truck upfitting company serving the electric transmission, distribution, telecom and other regional end-markets.

Truck Utilities provides specialized fleet and equipment, service, upfit, parts, tools and accessories to the Upper Midwest region from its three facilities located in St. Paul, Fargo and Kansas City. Truck Utilities’ current fleet includes 132 specialty units with an average age of 2.3 years and original equipment cost of $44 million.

“We are pleased to welcome Truck Utilities to the Nesco family and see the potential for significant synergies between our organizations,” said Lee Jacobson, CEO of Nesco.  “We believe that Truck Utilities’ young, underutilized fleet, upfit capabilities and additional service locations will enhance our existing business.  Nesco’s nationwide sales force and service network will bring scale to Truck Utilities existing platform and open the door to Nesco’s long-standing customer relationships.”

The purchase price is $42.2 million prior to certain capital expenditures to support fleet additions, as well as other customary adjustments.  For the last twelve months ended September 30, 2019, Truck Utilities generated Adjusted EBITDA of $8.2 million.  The transaction is anticipated to have the potential to create approximately $4 million of annual revenue and cost synergies. Nesco expects the transaction to be immediately accretive to earnings per share.

Nesco financed the transaction by drawing on its asset-based credit facility. As a result of the transaction, Nesco’s leverage metric declined on a pro forma basis (including anticipated synergies).

NESCO Releases First Quarter 2019 Financial Report

By Article, Press Release

To Read the Entire Financial Report, Including Financial Data, Click Here

FORT WAYNE, INDIANA, May 13, 2019 – Capitol Investment Corp. IV (NYSE: CIC; “Capitol”), a public investment vehicle, and Nesco Holdings I, Inc. (“Nesco”), a leading provider of specialty rental equipment to the electric utility, telecom and rail endmarkets, today reported Nesco’s financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2019.

As announced previously, Nesco and Capitol have entered into a definitive agreement in which Nesco will become a publicly listed company. The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2019. For additional information on the transaction, see Capitol’s Registration Statement on Form S-4 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on April 11, 2019, including any amendments thereto (as amended, the “Registration Statement”), which is available on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov, or Capitol’s website at www.capinvestment.com.

First Quarter 2019 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue of $61.5 million (+6.6% from first quarter of 2018)
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $30.4 million (+4.3% from first quarter of 2018)
  • Full year 2019 revenue and Adjusted EBITDA outlook reaffirmed

Review of First Quarter 2019 Results
Lee Jacobson, Nesco’s CEO, remarked: “Nesco is off to a great start in 2019 and I’m very pleased with our first quarter results which reflected continued robust growth in demand across all our end markets. We look forward to completing our merger with Capitol which will allow us to enter into the next phase of Nesco’s growth story by investing in our fleet to meet the demand we have been unable to serve in recent years and continue our strong trajectory as our end markets continue to grow. We have secured hard commitments from our leading suppliers in accordance with our growth plan and fully expect to realize deliveries to meet that plan. We are also progressing in-line with our plan to establish a parts, tools and accessories presence across the country by 2020
and opened two new facilities in April.”

Total revenue in the first quarter was $61.5 million, an increase of $3.8 million or 6.6% from the first quarter of 2018. The increase was driven by growth of $2.1 million in the Equipment Rental and Sales segment and growth of $1.7 million in the Parts, Tools and Accessories segment.

Equipment Rental and Sales segment total revenue grew 4.3% to $52.1 million for the quarter from $50.0 million for the same period in 2018. This growth was primarily due to an increase in used equipment sales and market share gains in telecom and rail. The prior year’s revenue included a net benefit of $1.3 million of equipment rental revenue related to power restoration work in Puerto Rico.

Parts, Tools and Accessories (“PTA”) segment revenue grew 21.9% to $9.4 million for the quarter from $7.7 million for the same period in 2018. The increase was due to the acquisition of N&L Equipment, which was completed in July 2018, and expanding demand for PTA products among Nesco’s customer base. The strategic acquisition of N&L added a new location and rounded out Nesco’s PTA offering for a complete product suite including insulated and non-insulated tools as well as test and repair services.

Total fleet count in the quarter averaged 4,075 compared to 3,879 in the first quarter of 2018, representing a growth rate of 5.1%. Capital expenditures in the quarter were predominately in the bucket and truck categories, driven by high demand in the transmission and distribution, telecom and rail end-markets. The company recorded an average rental rate per day of $137 and fleet utilization of 80.0% for the quarter. Equipment on rent increased to $453.6 million for the quarter from $445.9 million in 2018 due primarily to increased fleet size.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, for the three months ended March 31, 2019 grew 4.3% to $30.4 million from $29.2 million in the same period in 2018. A reconciliation between Adjusted EBITDA and GAAP net income is included in the accompanying financial data.

Non-Binding Letter of Intent
On May 13, 2019, Nesco entered into a non-binding letter of intent with a potential acquisition target in the equipment rental business. The purchase price is approximately $42 million, implying an approximately 5x multiple of reported Adjusted EBITDA prior to synergies and the full year impact of recent fleet additions. The acquisition remains subject to further diligence, negotiation of definitive agreements and satisfaction of the conditions negotiated therein. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that the potential acquisition will be concluded. Investors are further cautioned that those portions of the letter of intent that describe the proposed transaction, including the consideration to be issued therein, are non-binding and subject to change. If a definitive agreement is signed, the acquisition would not be expected to close until after consummation of the merger between Nesco and Capitol.

New President of Nesco
On May 13, 2019, Nesco entered into an employment agreement pursuant to which Robert Blackadar will serve as President. He will join Nesco on May 20, 2019. Mr. Blackadar brings 25 years of experience in the rental and equipment industry and demonstrated success in driving strong financial and operating results in senior leadership roles across sales and operations. He joins Nesco from Blueline Rental, where he served as Senior Vice President and Division Vice President with responsibility for company-wide operations across the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico, including fleet management, service, equipment sales and safety. Mr. Blackadar also held responsibility for the financial results of Blueline’s Eastern division, which represented half of the company’s business. As one of the senior leaders of Blueline, he led major growth initiatives and operational improvements across the company’s nationwide network, driving a turnaround in the business and supporting the ultimate sale of the company to United Rentals. Prior to joining Blueline, Mr. Blackadar held a range of leadership and sales roles with United Rentals, Herc Rentals and Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers.

Nesco management reaffirms its outlook on revenue and Adjusted EBITDA for the full-year 2019 as set forth in the investor presentation related to the merger with Capitol Investment Corp. IV, filed on April 8, 2019. This guidance is subject to the risks and uncertainties described in the “Forward Looking Statements” below.

Important factors, among others, that may affect actual results or outcomes include: the inability to complete the transactions contemplated by the proposed business combination; the inability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the proposed business combination, which may be affected by, among other things, the amount of cash available following any redemptions by Capitol stockholders; the ability to meet the NYSE’s listing standards following the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the proposed business combination; costs related to the proposed business combination; the inability to enter into or complete the proposed transaction governed by the non-binding letter of intent; the inability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the transaction contemplated by the non-binding letter of intent; Nesco’s ability to execute on its plans to develop and market new products and the timing of these development programs; Nesco’s estimates of the size of the markets for its solutions; the rate and degree of market acceptance of Nesco’s solutions; the success of other competing technologies that may become available; Nesco’s ability to identify and integrate acquisitions; the performance and security of Nesco’s services; potential litigation involving Capitol or Nesco; and general economic and market conditions impacting demand for Nesco’s services.

Key Operational and Financial Metrics

Non-GAAP Measures: Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures as defined under the rules of the SEC. Adjusted EBITDA is a financial performance measure that we use to monitor our results from operations and to measure our performance against our debt covenants. This common metric is intended to align Nesco’s shareholder, debt holders, and management.

The presentation of these financial measures enhances an investor’s understanding of our financial performance because these measures are useful financial metrics to assess our operating performance from period to period by excluding certain items that we believe are not representative of our core business. Such items are excluded pursuant to the definition of Adjusted EBITDA in our credit agreements; Adjusted EBITDA is the basis for several financial covenants therein. These financial measures will provide investors with a useful tool for assessing the comparability between periods of our ability to generate cash from operations sufficient to pay taxes, to service debt and to undertake capital expenditures. We use these financial measures for business planning purposes, for loan compliance purposes, and in measuring our performance relative to that of our competitors.

In analyzing and planning for our business, we supplement our use of financial measures based on U.S. GAAP with non-GAAP financial and other measures, as well as, use measures related to our specialized fleet of rental equipment, which are defined below. Nesco’s use of the terms EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may vary from that of others in its industry and therefore are limited in their usefulness as comparative measures. These financial measures should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss), operating income (loss) or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP as measures of operating performance or operating cash flows or as measures of liquidity. Our non-GAAP financial measures should not be relied upon to the exclusion of U.S. GAAP financial measures. We encourage investors to review our non-GAAP financial measures together with our U.S. GAAP results and historical consolidated financial statements, and not in isolation. Other companies may use similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures that are calculated differently from the way we calculate such measures. Accordingly, our non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA includes an adjustment to exclude the effects of purchase accounting adjustments when calculating the cost of used equipment sold. When equipment is purchased in connection with a business combination, the equipment is revalued to its then current fair value for accounting purposes. The consideration transferred (i.e., the purchase price) in a business combination is allocated to the fair value of equipment as of the acquisition date, with depreciation recorded thereafter following our accounting policies; however, this may not be indicative of our actual cost to acquire new equipment that we add to our fleet apart from a business acquisition. Additionally, the pricing of our rental contracts and equipment sales prices for our equipment is based off of OEC, and we measure a rate of return from our rentals and sales using OEC. As indicated above, our credit agreements define this adjustment to EBITDA, as such, and we believe this metric is a better indication of our true cost of equipment sales due to the removal of the purchase accounting adjustments.

Adjusted EBITDA: EBITDA represents net income before interest, income tax (benefit) provision, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) plus interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation, and amortization, as further adjusted for (1) non-cash purchase accounting impact, (2) transaction and process improvement costs, (3) major repairs, (4) share-based payments, and (5) other non-recurring items. These metrics are subject to certain limitations.

Fleet count represents the average equipment units held in our rental fleet over any period.

Fleet utilization, with respect to the average equipment units held in our rental fleet over any period, is defined as the total number of days the rental equipment was rented during the period divided by the total number of days such rental equipment could have been rented during the same period, assuming that each piece of equipment could have been rented every day in the period (i.e. no maintenance or planned downtime is included in the calculation).

Equipment on rent is the original equipment cost (“OEC”) of units rented to customers at a given point in time.

Average equipment on rent is calculated as the weighted average equipment on rent during the stated period. OEC represents the original equipment cost by fleet type over a period of time, exclusive of the effect of adjustments to rental equipment fleet acquired in business combinations. This adjusted measure of OEC is used by our creditors pursuant to our credit agreements, wherein this is a component of the basis for determining compliance with our financial loan covenants. Additionally, the pricing of our rental contracts and equipment sales prices for our equipment is based off of OEC, and we measure a rate of return from our rentals and sales using OEC. OEC is a widely-used industry metric to compare fleet dollar value independent of depreciation.

Rental rate per day for the period is calculated as total rental revenue divided by the total billed rental days.

NESCO Specialty Rentals Named Finalist in 2019 Nintex Solution Innovation Awards

By Article, News

Fort Wayne, IN—May 8, 2019— NESCO Specialty Rentals announced it is a finalist in the 2019 Nintex Solution Innovation Awards in the Industry Breakthroughs – Energy Category.

The Nintex Solution Innovation Awards recognize customer organizations who are driving impactful and innovative business solutions leveraging the powerful and easy-to-use Nintex Platform.

“Nintex is honored to recognize NESCO Specialty Rentals as a 2019 Nintex Solution Innovation Award finalist,” said Nintex Chief Customer Officer Josh Waldo. “We were truly impressed by the innovative ways organizations are using the Nintex Platform to improve the way people work and drive impactful business results.”

“NESCO needed to strengthen our business controls around the updating of data regarding our company financials in our ERP system,” said NESCO IT Director, Matt Brown. “The problem that we needed to solve was ensuring that postings to the MAS General Ledger by the accounting team were controlled in a manner that we could prove that they were reviewed & approved by the appropriate personnel on the team, while eliminating the ability for any team members to manually post to the system. This was accomplished by developing an automated workflow that the accounting team uses to submit journal entries that need to be posted for review. NESCO utilizes the Nintex workflow application in our SharePoint environment to route the requests to the appropriate resources and captures their approval or rejection of the proposed journal entries to be made in SharePoint as evidence needed to retain for auditing purposes. If a submitted request is approved, our workflow calls a web service application that automatically posts the entries into MAS. This not only has speed up the month-end accounting processes but has allowed us to disable manual updates to the General Ledger and retain the auditing evidence required.”

Award finalists were selected based on nominations submitted by Nintex customers and partners earlier this year. Nominations were open to every organization that turns to Nintex capabilities for successfully managing, automating and optimizing a wide-range of business processes including visual process mapping – Nintex Promapp™, process intelligence – Nintex Process Intelligence, Nintex Workflow, Nintex Forms, Nintex Mobile, Nintex Drawloop DocGen® for Salesforce, and Nintex Drawloop DocAutomation.

The worldwide winners of 2019 Nintex Solution Innovation Awards will be announced on June 3, 2019 and will also be celebrated at the 2019 Nintex ProcessFest conference in Bellevue, Wash., Sept. 30 – October 3, 2019, at the W Hotel.

Capitol Investment Corp. IV to Combine with NESCO

By Article, Press Release

SPAC Leader Capitol Using Fourth Investment Vehicle to Acquire Industry Leading Company Poised for Significant Growth

Growth in Infrastructure Investments for Electric Utility, Telecom and Rail Fueling Demand for Nesco’s Products and Services Drove 24% Adj. EBITDA CAGR Over Last Two Years

Business Combination to Provide Capital and a Public Currency to Expand Nesco’s Specialty Equipment Rental Fleet to Support Customers That Are Building, Maintaining, Repairing and Upgrading Critical Infrastructure Assets across North America

Prominent and Proven Public Company Value Creators Bill Plummer and Jeff Stoops Joining Nesco as Chairman and Board Member, Respectively

Investor Conference Call Scheduled for Monday, April 8th, at 11:00 AM EDT

WASHINGTON D.C. and FORT WAYNE, INDIANA, April 8, 2019 – Capitol Investment Corp. IV (NYSE: CIC; “Capitol”), a public investment vehicle, and Nesco Holdings I, Inc. (“Nesco”), a leading provider of specialty rental equipment to the electric utility, telecom and rail end-markets, announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement in which Nesco will become a publicly listed company with an anticipated initial enterprise value of approximately $1.1 billion. Nesco is currently a portfolio company of Energy Capital Partners (“ECP”).

Nesco offers its specialized equipment to a diverse customer base for the maintenance, repair, upgrade and installation of critical infrastructure assets including electric lines, telecommunications networks and rail systems. With a nationwide rental fleet of approximately 4,000 units, Nesco provides its customers a vast and comprehensive product offering along with an unrelenting focus on service. As a one-stop shop, Nesco also offers its customers the parts, tools and accessories needed to fully equip their crews for activity in the field. Nesco’s long-lived equipment assets offer highly attractive economic returns and the company has demonstrated strong financial performance with an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 49% in 2018 and a 24% compound annual growth rate of Adjusted EBITDA over the past two years.

Capitol is the fourth public investment vehicle of Chairman and CEO Mark Ein and President and CFO Dyson Dryden, following three prior successful transactions. The Capitol team has the best track record of public investment vehicle sponsors, with all three of its prior investments consistently beating the broader markets with an average annualized return of 17%1.

“We work hard to set ourselves apart from other investment vehicles by scouring the world for outstanding companies where our team, and our capital, can be a catalyst to accelerate growth and then we actively engage with the businesses post-merger to help execute the business plan and create substantial long-term shareholder value. Nesco perfectly fits our model as it is uniquely positioned to benefit from the increased demand for its equipment as the result of the significant, consistent growth in infrastructure spending in each of its core end-markets – electric utility transmission and distribution, 5G deployment and rail development,” said Mark Ein, Chairman and CEO of Capitol. “With the substantial end-market demand, attractive unit economics, capital from this transaction, a world class board and an experienced team all coming together, we believe the combined company will deliver superior returns for investors long into the future.”

Joining the combined company’s board of directors as Chairman is William Plummer who served as the CFO of United Rentals, Inc. from 2008 until he left the company in January 2019. Over a pivotal decade of substantial growth and shareholder value creation during his tenure, the company’s stock price increased more than 21 times as the market capitalization grew from $385 million to $11.4 billion.

Jeffrey Stoops will also join the combined company’s board of directors. Mr. Stoops has served as the CEO of SBA Communications Corp. for the last seventeen years, overseeing transformational growth of the wireless tower infrastructure company leading to a market capitalization increase from $553 million to $22.6 billion and a stock price increase of 15 times.

Nesco’s current management team, led by CEO Lee Jacobson and CFO Bruce Heinemann, will continue to run the combined company post-transaction.

Mark Ein and Dyson Dryden, as well as Doug Kimmelman, the Senior Partner and founder of ECP, Rahman D’Argenio, an ECP partner, and CEO Lee Jacobson will also serve as directors on the combined company’s board of directors.

The annual investment spend in Nesco’s end-markets exceeds $100 billion and grew at a 7.8% annual growth rate from 2001 to 2017 compared to a 3.9% annual growth rate in U.S. GDP over the same period2. Nesco’s end-markets have demonstrated limited correlation with GDP growth and resiliency throughout prior economic cycles3.

Continued future growth is supported by multiple important, fundamental and transformative long-term trends across Nesco’s end-markets:

The electric utility market, which has an annual infrastructure spend of over $60 billion, is in the early years of a secular investment upcycle expected to persist through the 2020s, driven by utilities’ investment to replace or strengthen an aging electric grid, to integrate growing gas and renewable generation mandated by regulation and to meet the expanding demand from electric vehicles and electric heating with a growing focus on decarbonization.4

The 5G upgrade cycle is driving a new wave of telecom infrastructure spending with 5G capex by the Big 4 wireless providers expected to total $240 billion over the next decade as deployment is expected to add 20 times more cells than the existing macro structure.5

Urban congestion and increased freight transportation needs have driven a nationwide investment in improving rail infrastructure with the U.S. Senate approving over $16 billion of spending to support commuter rail and transit projects in 2019 alone.

ECP and its affiliates will retain 70% of their investment in the combined company upon completion of the transaction. “Nesco has built a terrific platform in highly attractive end-markets as demonstrated by its strong financial performance,” said Doug Kimmelman, Senior Partner and Founder of ECP. “We are excited about the prospect of partnering with Capitol to continue Nesco’s growth as a public company with access to new sources of capital.”

“We are thrilled about our new partnership with Capitol and to continue our strong relationship with ECP as we shift into the next phase of Nesco’s growth story,” said CEO Lee Jacobson. “This transaction enables us to invest in our fleet to fulfill the increased demand that we have been unable to serve in recent years and that we expect to only increase as the result of the continued investment in our end-markets, all of which will drive significant and sustained growth for our business.”

“We are excited to have two tremendous public market value creators in Bill Plummer and Jeff Stoops join us as active participants on the board and helping the Nesco team as they continue to execute on the significant opportunities that the company’s compelling and stable end-markets present,” said Dyson Dryden, President and CFO of Capitol.

Summary of Transaction

Under the terms of the proposed transaction, Capitol will become the owner of all the equity of Nesco and will be renamed Nesco Holdings, Inc. Capitol will become a Delaware domiciled corporation immediately prior to the closing of the transaction. The combined company will have an anticipated initial enterprise value of approximately $1.1 billion, implying a 7.9x multiple of projected 2019 Adjusted EBITDA and a 6.4x multiple of projected 2020 Adjusted EBITDA.

At closing, current stockholders of Capitol and current Nesco shareholders will hold approximately 72% and 28%, respectively, of the issued and outstanding shares of the combined company’s common stock, assuming no public shareholders of Capitol exercise redemption rights. The current Nesco shareholders will also receive $75 million of cash consideration and incentive earnout shares totaling up to 1.8 million common shares, issued in 0.9 million increments when the combined company’s stock price reaches $13.00 and $16.00 per share.

The net cash proceeds from the transaction are expected to be used to pay down Nesco’s existing debt.

In addition, Capitol has entered into a $400 million debt commitment agreement with J.P. Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., Morgan Stanley Senior Funding, Inc., Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Deutsche Bank AG and Fifth Third Bank, the proceeds of which will be used to repay existing Nesco indebtedness. It is currently anticipated that Nesco will issue a notice of redemption with respect to its outstanding second lien notes immediately prior to the merger and that these notes would be redeemed concurrently with the close of the merger. Capitol has also secured commitments from lenders to provide a $350 million asset-based credit facility at closing.

The boards of directors of both Capitol and Nesco have unanimously approved the proposed transaction. Completion of the transaction, which is expected in the second quarter of 2019, is subject to approval by Capitol stockholders and other customary closing conditions.

For additional information on the transaction, see Capitol’s website at www.capinvestment.com and Capitol’s Current Report on Form 8-K, which will be filed promptly and which can be obtained, without charge, on the Securities and Exchange Commission’s website (http://www.sec.gov).

Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC served as financial and capital markets advisors to Capitol, while Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC served as exclusive financial advisor to Nesco. Latham & Watkins LLP and Graubard Miller acted as legal advisors to Capitol and Kirkland & Ellis LLP acted as legal advisor to Nesco and ECP.
