Actuant Reports First Quarter Results; Reaffirms Fiscal 2018 Guidance

Actuant Corporation (ATU) today announced results for its first quarter ended November 30, 2017.

Highlights

Consolidated sales increased 9% over the comparable prior year quarter with a 3% benefit from foreign currency rate changes. First quarter core sales (total sales excluding the impact of acquisitions, divestitures and foreign currency rate changes) increased 6% on a year-over-year basis with strong volumes in both the Industrial and Engineered Solutions segments.

GAAP diluted earnings per share ("EPS") were $0.09 in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 versus $0.08 in the prior year. Excluding first quarter fiscal 2018 restructuring charges of $0.10 per share, adjusted EPS was $0.19 (see Consolidated Results below and the attached reconciliation of earnings).

Restructuring activities related to leadership changes and other items proceeded as anticipated with total charges of approximately $6.6 million in the first quarter.

Reaffirmed full year sales and adjusted EPS guidance of $1.10-1.13 billion and $1.05-1.15 per share, respectively (excluding restructuring and divestiture and impairment charges).

Just after quarter end, completed the previously announced divestiture of the Viking offshore mooring business and the acquisition of Mirage Machines.

Randy Baker, President and CEO of Actuant commented, "Actuant delivered solid first quarter financial results. Consolidated sales were above our expectations with robust on and off highway equipment demand and strong industrial volumes which more than offset the continued challenging energy maintenance environment. Unfavorable mix and higher warranty and other one-time costs contributed to the lower than expected margin flow through on those higher sales. Despite these items, and a modestly higher quarterly effective income tax rate, we delivered adjusted EPS of $0.19, at the high end of our guidance range. Importantly, we completed the portfolio management actions needed to significantly limit our offshore, upstream oil and gas exposure with the divestiture of Viking just after quarter end. In summary, a good start to the fiscal year and I am appreciative of the efforts and execution of Actuant employees to meet our financial commitments."

Consolidated Results

Consolidated sales for the first quarter were $289 million, 9% higher than the $266 million in the comparable prior year quarter. Core sales improved 6% year-over-year while foreign currency rate changes increased sales 3%, with no impact from acquisitions or divestitures. Fiscal 2018 first quarter net earnings and EPS were $5.2 million, or $0.09, compared to $5.0 million and $0.08, respectively, in the comparable prior year quarter. Fiscal 2018 first quarter earnings included restructuring charges of $6.6 million ($6.3 million or $0.10 per share after tax). First quarter 2017 results included $2.9 million ($2.2 million or $0.04 per share, after tax) of restructuring charges and $7.8 million ($4.9 million or $0.08 per share after tax) of director and officer transition charges. Excluding these items, adjusted EPS for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was $0.19 compared to $0.20 in the comparable prior year period (see attached reconciliation of earnings).

(1) Excludes restructuring charges of $1.2 million and $0.7 million in fiscal 2018 and 2017, respectively.

First quarter fiscal 2018 Industrial segment sales were $97 million or 11% higher than the prior year. The impact of foreign currency exchange rates was a 2% benefit resulting in a 9% year-over-year core sales increase. Overall demand for standard industrial tools remained strong globally and across the diverse set of end markets served, representing both market strength and the outgrowth associated with our commercial effectiveness efforts. The first quarter’s robust heavy lifting technology volume more than offset a decline in the concrete tensioning product category. First quarter adjusted operating profit margin of 20.1% reflects solid incremental margins on the industrial tool sales. However, these were more than offset by both unfavorable sales mix and discrete costs associated with heavy lifting projects, along with continued facility consolidation inefficiencies.

Fiscal 2018 first quarter Energy segment sales declined 10% year-over-year to $76 million. Excluding the 2% favorable impact of the weaker US dollar, core sales declined 12%. As anticipated, Hydratight’s sales decreased in line with expectations due to the continuation of maintenance deferrals and scope reductions, most notably in the Asia Pacific region. Cortland sales grew double digits on the strength of non-energy rope and cable applications while Viking sales declined as anticipated. Energy segment adjusted operating profit margin declined to 1.6% but the segment was profitable despite the lower volumes and Viking operating losses due to the benefit of cost reductions actions.

First quarter fiscal 2018 Engineered Solutions segment sales were $116 million or 24% above the prior year. Excluding the 4% benefit of the weaker US dollar, year-over-year core sales increased 20%. The robust sales growth was seen across virtually every end market including heavy-duty truck, agriculture and various other off-highway equipment categories. First quarter adjusted operating profit margin improved 270 basis points from the comparable prior year quarter due to the higher volumes and cost reduction efforts.

Corporate Expenses and Income Taxes (excluding restructuring and transition charges)

Corporate expenses for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 were $6.0 million, or $0.4 million lower than the comparable prior year period due primarily to the benefit of cost reduction actions. The approximate 15% first quarter effective income tax rate was higher than the prior year’s 5% and modestly above expectations.

Financial Position

Net debt at November 30, 2017 was approximately $390 million (total debt of $555 million less $165 million of cash) which includes approximately $27 million in lease buy-out payments made during the quarter as a condition precedent to completion of the Viking divestiture on December 1, 2017.

Outlook

Baker continued, "As the first quarter results demonstrate, we believe we are on track to meet our financial guidance for the fiscal year. Our commitment to investing in organic growth initiatives, including commercial effectiveness and new products, is helping to deliver on our goal of sales outperformance versus the underlying markets. While we have seen margin headwinds, we are making progress correcting underlying operating inefficiencies, improving mix and restructuring our businesses where necessary.

For the full year, we are maintaining our prior sales guidance in the $1.10-1.13 billion range with core sales now up 1-3%. We are also maintaining our adjusted EPS guidance in the $1.05-1.15 range, with a full year estimated effective income tax rate of 5-10%. The effective date of the Viking divestiture and Mirage acquisition is consistent with our initial 2018 guidance assumptions. Free cash flow is projected to be in the $85-95 million range in fiscal 2018.

We expect second quarter sales to be in the $265-275 million range, with adjusted EPS of $0.10-0.15. The second quarter outlook incorporates the normal seasonal slowdown experienced across nearly all of our businesses, along with moderating heavy duty truck demand in China.

All guidance excludes restructuring and divestiture and impairment charges, as well as the impact of potential future acquisitions and share repurchases. We have a strong pipeline of focused tuck-in acquisitions, and we have ample capital to fund both our organic and inorganic deployment priorities."

FOOTNOTES
NOTE:
The total of the individual quarters may not equal the annual total
due to rounding.
(1)
Adjusted earnings and adjusted diluted earnings per share represent
net earnings (loss) and earnings (loss) per share per the Condensed
Consolidated Statements of Earnings net of charges or credits for
items to be highlighted for comparability purposes. These measures
should not be considered as an alternative to net earnings (loss) or
diluted earnings (loss) per share or as an indicator of the
Company’s operating performance. However, this presentation is
important to investors for understanding the operating results of
the current portfolio of Actuant companies. The total of the
individual components may not equal due to rounding.
(2)
EBITDA represents net earnings (loss) before financing costs, net,
income tax (benefit) expense, and depreciation & amortization.
EBITDA is not a calculation based upon generally accepted accounting
principles (GAAP). The amounts included in the EBITDA and Adjusted
EBITDA calculation, however, are derived from amounts included in
the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings. EBITDA should not
be considered as an alternative to net earnings (loss), operating
profit (loss) or operating cash flows. Actuant has presented EBITDA
because it regularly reviews this performance measure. In addition,
EBITDA is used by many of our investors and lenders, and is
presented as a convenience to them. The EBITDA measure presented may
not always be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by
other companies due to differences in the components of the
calculation.

FOOTNOTES
NOTE:
Management does not provide guidance on GAAP financial measures as
we are unable to predict and estimate with certainty items such as
potential impairments, refinancing costs, business divestiture
gains/losses, discrete tax adjustments, or other items impacting
GAAP financial metrics. As a result, we have included above only
those items about which we are aware and are reasonably likely to
occur during the guidance period covered.

quarter).
