Briggs & Stratton Corporation Reports Fiscal 2017 Fourth Quarter And Full-Year Results

Briggs & Stratton Corporation (BGG) today announced financial results for its fourth fiscal quarter and year ended July 2, 2017.

https://mma.prnewswire.com/media/128192/briggs___stratton_corporation_logo.jpg

For the fiscal 2017 fourth quarter:

Fiscal fourth quarter net sales were $474 million, a decrease of $28 million or 5.6% from $502 million for the prior year. Continued high growth in commercial turf and lawn care, commercial job site, and commercial engines was offset by softness in residential sales.

Quarterly gross profit margin of 21.3% increased from GAAP gross profit margin of 18.7% and was consistent with adjusted gross profit margin of 21.4% last year, as an improved product mix and manufacturing efficiencies offset the impact of lower volumes.

Fourth quarter net income was $19.7 million, an increase from GAAP net income of $5.3 million and slightly lower than adjusted net income of $20.1 million last year. On a diluted per-share basis, earnings were $0.46, an increase from $0.12 (GAAP) and consistent with $0.46 (adjusted) last year.

For the fiscal 2017 full year:

Fiscal 2017 net sales were $1.79 billion, down 1.3% from $1.81 billion for fiscal 2016. Fiscal 2017 was a record year for net sales of commercial type products, amounting to $434 million, a 7% increase compared to last year.

Gross profit margin of 21.5% increased from GAAP gross profit margin of 20.0% and adjusted gross profit margin of 21.1% last year, due to manufacturing efficiency improvements and favorable sales mix, including a higher proportion of commercial sales and higher margins on new products.

Net income was $56.7 million, an increase from GAAP net income of $26.6 million and adjusted net income of $55.0 million last year. Fiscal 2017 diluted earnings per share were $1.31, an increase from $0.60 (GAAP) and $1.25 (adjusted) last year. We achieved earnings growth of over 20% in fiscal 2017 after factoring out higher ERP upgrade costs, the negative impact of foreign exchange, higher pension costs and a higher tax rate.

Stock repurchase and dividend update:

-- The company paid $24.1 million in cash dividends to shareholders during fiscal 2017.

The company repurchased $19.7 million of common stock under the company’s share repurchase program during fiscal 2017. The company currently has approximately $30.5 million remaining under the current authorization, which expires on June 29, 2018.

Fiscal 2018 outlook:

For fiscal 2018, the company estimates net sales in a range of $1.87 billion to $1.92 billion, for projected annual growth of 4.5% to 7.5%. Projections reflect modest market growth assumptions plus a return to more normalized channel inventories.

Fiscal 2018 diluted earnings per share are estimated to be $1.31 to $1.48. Factoring out the absence of hurricanes, higher expected ERP upgrade costs, higher expected interest expense and a change in tax rate, the midpoint of the earnings range shows growth for fiscal 2018 of approximately 25% compared to fiscal 2017.

"We achieved earnings within our guidance range for fiscal 2017 on the meaningful progress made to diversify our business and drive operational excellence," stated Todd J. Teske, Briggs & Stratton’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "During the year, we delivered strong sales growth in commercial products and commercial engines to gain share and improve gross profit margins. New, innovative products, with the features our customers want, also contributed to profitability and our success in maintaining our leadership position in engines." Teske continued, "Lower-than-expected shipments of residential outdoor power equipment and engines resulted from certain North America channel partners making unexpected changes to their merchandising and inventory stocking levels during the spring selling season compounded by regional pockets of suboptimal growing conditions. We have observed improved growing conditions throughout the season but continue to see a cautious approach to reordering as channel partners have focused on controlling inventory to abnormally low levels. Looking ahead, we remain optimistic about the future, as reflected in the outlook for fiscal 2018, as well as today’s announcement of our business optimization program, which will drive further advancements in operational excellence and provide capacity for the production of high-growth products."

Business Optimization Program

In addition to quarterly and full-year financial results, today the company announced the launch of a business optimization program that is designed to drive efficiencies and expand capacity in commercial engines and cutting equipment. The program entails expanding production of Vanguard commercial engines into the company’s existing large engine plants, which are located in Georgia and Alabama, and expanding Ferris commercial mower production capacity in a new, modern facility which is located close to the current manufacturing location in New York. "We have successfully grown commercial sales by $180 million, or more than 70%, over the last five years," said Teske. "Our launch of this business optimization program will lay the foundation for continued profitable growth. These actions are expected to enable the highly dedicated and skilled teams at our U.S. plants to more effectively produce our commercial offerings."

Production of Vanguard engines in the company’s U.S. plants is expected to be phased in beginning in late fiscal 2018 through the middle of fiscal 2019. Currently, the majority of Vanguard engines are sourced from overseas. Production of Ferris commercial mowers is expected to begin in the new facility in the latter half of fiscal 2018, and the exit from the existing plant and remote warehouse is planned for fiscal 2019. The business optimization program also includes the project costs for the integration and go-live efforts associated with the company’s ERP upgrade and the anticipated operational excellence efficiency improvements. The go-live for the ERP upgrade is expected towards the end of fiscal 2018, subsequent to the peak seasonal shipment period.

We project that the business optimization program will generate $30 million to $35 million of annual pre-tax savings, in addition to supporting profitable commercial growth. We estimate the savings will be achieved over a three-year period beginning in fiscal 2019. Total pre-tax expenses related to the business optimization program are expected to be approximately $50 million to $55 million, of which $24 million to $28 million is expected be recognized in fiscal 2018.

Outlook:

For fiscal 2018, we anticipate net sales to be in a range of $1.87 billion to $1.92 billion for growth of 4.5% to 7.5%. This sales range contemplates that the markets for commercial products will grow mid-single digits and that we will continue to gain market share in the categories of commercial turf and lawn care, commercial job site, and commercial engines. We anticipate modest market growth for the U.S. residential lawn and garden market in addition to some normalization of channel inventory levels. Our outlook does not include any positive impact of storms, whereas fiscal 2017 net sales included a modest benefit from Hurricane Matthew.

For fiscal 2018, we estimate mid-point growth in net income of approximately 6%, to be in a range of $56 million to $64 million, or $1.31 to $1.48 per diluted share, prior to the impact of costs related to our business optimization program or the benefit of any share repurchases. Operating margins before business optimization costs are expected to be approximately 5.6% to 5.8%. Compared to fiscal 2017, operating margins are expected to improve due to favorable sales mix from growth of commercial products, product margin expansion and operational efficiency improvements.

The improvement in operating margins is anticipated to be tempered by incremental pre-tax expenses of $4 million to $6 million ($0.06 to $0.09 per diluted share) for completing the build-out phase of the ERP system upgrade. We also anticipate increased interest expense of approximately $2.5 million ($0.04 per diluted share) due to rising interest rates and higher average borrowings. The effective tax rate is projected to return to a more normal rate, in a range of 31% to 33%, from 28.9% for fiscal 2017, for an increased expense of $0.06 per diluted share. After factoring out the absence of hurricane benefits, the increased ERP upgrade costs, higher interest expense and the change in tax rate, the midpoint of our earnings range for fiscal 2018 contemplates approximately 25% growth in earnings compared with fiscal 2017. Capital expenditures are projected to be $80 million to $90 million, which includes the majority of expenditures associated with the business optimization program.

Liquidity and Capital Resources:

Net debt at July 2, 2017 was $161.4 million (total debt, excluding debt issuance costs, of $223.1 million less $61.7 million of cash), or $28.1 million higher than net debt of $133.3 million (total debt, excluding debt issuance costs, of $223.1 million less $89.8 million of cash) at July 3, 2016. Cash flows provided by operating activities for fiscal 2017 were $90.3 million compared to $114.9 million in fiscal 2016. The decrease in cash provided by operating activities was primarily related to changes in working capital, including higher accounts receivable due to timing of sales and collections year over year. During fiscal 2017, the Company repurchased approximately 996,000 shares on the open market at an average price of $19.77 per share. As of July 2, 2017, the Company had remaining authorization to repurchase up to approximately $30.5 million of common stock with an expiration date of June 29, 2018.

Fourth Quarter Highlights

Starting in fiscal 2017, we implemented new sales terms for engines shipped to overseas customers, resulting in earlier revenue recognition compared to the terms we used during previous fiscal years. The change in terms caused units sold and net sales to be higher in the first half of the fiscal year compared to the second half. As a result of the change, units sold and net sales were lower in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 by approximately 39,000 units and $7 million, respectively.

Using comparable sales terms, engine sales volumes decreased by 4% or approximately 80,000 engines in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. The decrease was due to channel partners taking a different approach to merchandising and inventory stocking this season compounded by regional pockets of suboptimal spring weather. Partially offsetting the decrease were higher sales of Vanguard commercial engines.

Gross profit percentage increased due to manufacturing efficiency improvements and favorable sales mix including a higher proportion of commercial engine sales and margin lift on new products. The gross profit percentage improved despite a 2% decrease in production units compared to last year.

ESG&A decreased by $9.6 million (GAAP) and $0.4 million (adjusted) compared to last year due to lower compensation cost, partially offset by the investment in our ERP system upgrade.

Fiscal Year Summary

Net sales decreased by $44.0 million or 3.9% primarily due to lower shipments of engines in North America due to channel partners taking a different approach to merchandising and inventory stocking this season compounded by regional pockets of suboptimal spring weather. Partially offsetting the decrease were higher sales of Vanguard commercial engines. Gross profit percentage increased by 170 basis points. Adjusted gross profit percentage increased by 70 basis points despite lower production of 5% year over year due to manufacturing efficiency improvements and favorable sales mix including a higher proportion of commercial engine sales and margin lift on new products. Engineering, selling, general and administrative costs (ESG&A) decreased $9.2 million. Adjusted ESG&A (which only included adjustments in the prior year) increased by $2.7 million, primarily due to $4.0 million of higher spend related to our ERP upgrade. Equity in earnings of unconsolidated affiliates increased by $4.2 million.

Fourth Quarter Highlights

Net sales decreased by $12.9 million, primarily due to lower sales of pressure washers resulting from lesser category merchandising support at retail and cool spring temperatures. Partially offsetting the sales decrease were higher sales of commercial lawn & garden and jobsite equipment, generators, and service parts.

Gross profit percentage increased by 110 basis points. Adjusted gross profit percentage was consistent with last year as manufacturing efficiency improvements and favorable sales mix, including higher sales of commercial products and service parts, were offset by 25% lower manufacturing throughput.

ESG&A decreased by $1.8 million compared to last year due to lower compensation cost.

Fiscal Year Summary

Net sales increased by $6.2 million or 0.8%, primarily due to higher sales of commercial lawn & garden and jobsite equipment and generators, which includes the higher shipments related to Hurricane Matthew. Pressure washer sales decreased due to lesser category merchandising support at retail and cool spring temperatures. Gross profit percentage increased 120 basis points. Adjusted gross profit percentage improved by 20 basis points year over year due to favorable sales mix, which included higher sales of commercial products. The profitability improvement was achieved despite 8% lower production throughput. ESG&A increased $1.3 million, primarily due to higher spend of $1.3 million related to our ERP upgrade.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Briggs & Stratton Corporation prepares its financial statements using Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). When a company discloses material information containing non-GAAP financial measures, SEC regulations require that the disclosure include a presentation of the most directly comparable GAAP measure and a reconciliation of the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures. Management’s inclusion of non-GAAP financial measures in this release is intended to supplement, not replace, the presentation of the financial results in accordance with GAAP. Briggs & Stratton Corporation management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP financial measures, provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may, or could, have a disproportionately positive or negative impact on results in any particular period. Management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enhance the ability of investors to analyze our business trends and to understand our performance. In addition, we may utilize non-GAAP financial measures as a guide in our forecasting, budgeting and long-term planning process. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP. The following tables are reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures:
