ALAMO GROUP ANNOUNCES RECORD 2022 SECOND QUARTER SALES AND EARNINGS

SEGUIN, Texas, Aug. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Alamo Group Inc. (NYSE: ALG) today reported results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Highlights for the Quarter

  • Net sales of $396.2 million, up 14.0%
    • Vegetation Management net sales of $255.0 million, up 18.8%
    • Industrial Equipment net sales of $141.2 million, up 6.3%
  • Income from operations of $40.9 million, up 21.8%
  • Net income of $28.5 million, or $2.39 per diluted share, up 9.4%
  • Trailing twelve-month EBITDA of $172.9 million, up 6.7% from full year 2021(1)
  • Backlog of $894.0 million, up 77.5% compared to prior year second quarter-end

Results for the Quarter

Second quarter 2022 net sales were $396.2 million compared to $347.6 million in the second quarter of 2021, an increase of 14.0%.  Gross margin improved in the quarter versus the second quarter of 2021 by $11.6 million or 13.1%.  Second quarter net income improved 9.4% to $28.5 million, or $2.39 per diluted share, compared to net income of $26.0 million, or $2.19 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2021.  The Company's backlog at the end of the second quarter of 2022 was $894.0 million, an increase of $390.5 million, or 77.5%, from the backlog at the end of the second quarter of 2021, and up 11.6% from the end of calendar year 2021.

The positive results reported for the quarter were achieved through a combination of effective price management, improved manufacturing efficiencies and disciplined control of operating expenses.  These results were achieved despite persistent headwinds including material cost inflation, elevated transportation costs, supply chain disruptions and skilled labor shortages.  They were also achieved net of the negative impact of currency exchange rates on our consolidated financial results.

Results by Division

Vegetation Management

The Vegetation Management Division had a strong second quarter of 2022 as markets remained solid compared to the second quarter of 2021.  The Division's second quarter net sales were $255.0 million, up 18.8% compared to $214.7 million for the same period in 2021. For the first six months of 2022, net sales in this Division were $476.0 million, compared to $398.5 million for the first six months of 2021, up 19.4%.  The increase in net sales was driven by strong retail demand for agricultural, forestry, tree care, and governmental mowing products in both North America and Europe. 

The Division's income from operations for the second quarter 2022 was $32.8 million, up 44.7% compared to $22.7 million for the second quarter of 2021.  For the first six months of 2022, income from operations was $51.1 million versus $39.4 million for the first six months of 2021, an increase of 29.7%.  Strong results in the United Kingdom, France, Brazil and Australia also contributed to this division's outstanding performance during the quarter.  The Division benefited from strong sales, better pricing, a favorable product mix and was able to effectively manage costs and expenses in spite of the impact of ongoing supply chain issues, higher material and inbound freight costs and related surcharges.

Industrial Equipment

The Industrial Equipment Division's second quarter 2022 net sales were $141.2 million, up 6.3% compared to $132.9 million during the same period in 2021.  The increase was primarily attributable to pricing actions that drove higher sales of its excavator and vacuum truck products and, to a lesser extent, other product lines within the Division.  Delays in deliveries of medium duty truck chassis and other industrial components, negatively impacted the Division during the second quarter of 2022.

For the first six months of 2022 net sales were $282.2 million compared to $260.2 million for the first six months of 2021, an 8.5% increase.  Strong net sales of excavators, vacuum trucks, street sweepers and, to a lesser, extent snow removal equipment were the primary reasons for the increase.

The Division's income from operations for the second quarter of 2022 was $8.1 million, down 25.7%, compared to $10.9 million, for the second quarter of 2021.  For the first six months of 2022 income from operations was $18.9 million compared to $19.6 million for the first six months of 2021, a decrease of 3.6%.  The Division was negatively impacted during the second quarter and first six months of 2022 by supply chain disruptions, constrained chassis deliveries and higher material and inbound freight costs. 

Comments on Results

Jeff Leonard, Alamo Group's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are pleased to report that, in the second quarter, Alamo Group achieved the highest quarterly sales and earnings in the Company's history.  While the second quarter is normally seasonally strong for the Company, both sales and earnings for the quarter comfortably exceeded previous records.  It is especially satisfying that our teams were able to produce robust results in a business environment that certainly remains turbulent and challenging.

"Modest improvements in supply chain performance helped our teams increase customer shipments and improve production efficiencies during the quarter.  The improvement in efficiency, combined with better pricing, supported gross margin performance despite persistent cost inflation pressures.  Good cost discipline was evident across the Company during the quarter and helped us drive double-digit Income from Operations growth for the first time since the third quarter of 2020.

"Orders received during the quarter declined modestly compared to the second quarter of 2021, however overall, our markets continued to show significant strength.  The decline in order bookings during the quarter was primarily the result of gradually softening demand in the North American agriculture market.  This was partially offset by a nice increase in Industrial Equipment orders led by strong pre-season demand for turn-key, municipal snowplows.  Consolidated backlog declined slightly compared to the end of the first quarter but remained significantly higher than it was at the end of the second quarter of 2021.

"Looking ahead to the second half of the year, we remain encouraged regarding the Company's sales and earnings prospects.  Truck chassis delivery reliability improved in the second quarter, and we are optimistic that gradual improvement in chassis supply will support improved sales and profitability in our Industrial Equipment Division during the third and fourth quarters of this year.  We anticipate that the modest improvement in overall supply chain performance evident in the second quarter will continue for the next few months, although shortages of certain components are expected to extend into next year.  With an improving supply chain situation, our inventory levels should also naturally decline.  Most importantly, our backlog remains close to the historic high set at the end of the first quarter of 2022 and the margin in backlog is increasingly healthy.  This gives us confidence that the Company will continue to perform well for the remainder of 2022 and at least through the early months of 2023."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures Reconciliation

From time to time, Alamo Group Inc. may disclose certain "non-GAAP financial measures" in the course of its earnings releases, earnings conference calls, financial presentations and otherwise.  For these purposes, "GAAP" refers to generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.  The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) defines a "non-GAAP financial measure" as a numerical measure of historical or future financial performance, financial position, or cash flows that is subject to adjustments that effectively exclude or include amounts from the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.  Non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by Alamo Group are provided as additional information to investors in order to provide them with greater transparency about, or an alternative method for assessing, our financial condition and operating results.  These measures are not in accordance with, or a substitute for, GAAP and may be different from, or inconsistent with, non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.  Whenever we refer to a non-GAAP financial measure, we will also generally present the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, along with a reconciliation of the differences between the non-GAAP financial measure we reference and such comparable GAAP financial measure.

Attachment 1 discloses Operating Income, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted EPS,  related to the impact of non-recurring items, of which are non-GAAP financial measures. Attachment 2 discloses a non-GAAP financial presentation related to the impact of currency translation on net sales by division. Attachment 3 shows the net change in our total debt net of cash and earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") which is a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company considers this information useful to investors to allow better comparability of period-to-period operating performance.
