Regal Beloit Corporation Announces First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

BELOIT, Wis., May 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Regal Beloit Corporation (NYSE: RBC), a global leader in the engineering and manufacturing of high-efficiency electric motors and power transmission products, reported first quarter 2020 GAAP diluted earnings per share of $1.12 compared to $1.99 a year ago. First quarter 2020 adjusted diluted earnings per share* were $1.31 compared to $1.40 a year ago.

Key financial results for the first quarter 2020 included:

  • Total net sales of $734.2 decreased 14.0% from the prior year. Excluding the negative impacts of 0.7% from foreign currency and 3.5% from businesses to be divested/exited, sales declined 9.8% on an organic basis.
  • Income from operations was $70.0 million or 9.5% of net sales. Adjusted income from operations declined $10.3 million from a year ago, to $79.2 million. Adjusted operating income margin of 10.8% was relatively flat vs. the prior year's 10.9%.
  • Adjusted income from operations delevered at 12.0%.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities was $102.7 million and capital expenditures totaled $10.9 million, resulting in free cash flow of $91.8 million.
  • Purchased 315,072 shares for a total of $25.0 million. The Company has suspended its share buyback program at this time.

First quarter 2020 segment results versus the prior year first quarter:

  • Commercial Systems segment net sales were $199.4 million, a decrease of 17.7%. Businesses divested/to be exited had a negative 4.5% impact, and foreign currency had a negative 0.7% impact. The result was a negative organic sales growth rate of 12.5% driven by COVID-related production delays in the pool pump business, headwinds in commercial HVAC markets and COVID-related pressure on Europe air moving markets, combined with proactive account pruning. Partially offsetting these headwinds were share gains in the China motors business serving the agriculture and air moving markets. During the quarter, COVID-related production delays at the Company's Changzhou, China factory limited its ability to meet customer demand for pool pumps, but that facility has resumed operations and is seeing positive momentum in April. Operating margin was 6.3%. After net adjustments of $3.0 million, adjusted operating margin was 7.8% of adjusted net sales.
  • Industrial Systems segment net sales were $129.6 million, a decrease of 6.2%. Foreign currency had a negative 1.7% impact. The result was a negative organic sales growth rate of 4.5% driven by COVID-related headwinds across the business, but especially impacting sales into the power generation and industrial end markets, combined with proactive account pruning, partially offset by share gains in the data center market. Operating margin was negative 0.4%. After net adjustments of $1.5 million, adjusted operating margin was 0.8% of adjusted net sales.
  • Climate Solutions segment net sales were $210.1 million, a decrease of 20.2%. The businesses divested/to be exited had a negative 5.0% impact, and foreign currency had a negative 0.4% impact. The result was a negative organic sales growth rate of 14.8% driven by mild weather, in addition to rising headwinds related to the COVID-19 pandemic, and ongoing proactive account pruning efforts. Operating margin was 14.0%. After net adjustments of $2.5 million, adjusted operating margin was 15.2% of adjusted net sales.
  • Power Transmission Solutions segment net sales were $195.1 million, a decrease of 7.2%. The businesses divested/to be exited had a negative 2.5% impact, and foreign currency had a negative 0.5% impact. The result was a negative organic sales growth rate of 4.2% driven by significant COVID-related declines in oil & gas end markets, in addition to ongoing proactive account pruning activities in the segment. On the positive side, and partially offsetting these headwinds, were share gains in alternative energy markets. Operating margin was 14.6%. After net adjustments of $2.2 million, adjusted operating margin was 15.7% of adjusted net sales.

*This earnings release includes non-GAAP financial measures. Descriptions of why we believe these non-GAAP measures are useful and reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are included with this earnings release.

Summarizing Regal's first quarter 2020 performance, CEO Louis Pinkham commented, "In a quarter that started to face unprecedented commercial and personal challenges posed by the coronavirus, the Regal team delivered strong execution. I am extremely proud of their hard work, their resourcefulness, their adaptability, and their sense of duty, as they served and supported our customers with Regal's essential products."

Mr. Pinkham went on to comment, "As I look across our segments, both PTS and Industrial posted higher year-over-year operating profit and margin gains, despite confronting external end market headwinds that weighed on sales. Climate saw its sales down nearly 15% on an organic basis - due in large part to historically warm weather and to COVID-19 - but still managed to limit its operating margin decline to under 50 basis points, delevering at a very respectable 18.3%. Our Commercial business had a tougher first quarter - largely as a result of COVID-19 impacts - but still managed to hold deleverage at 25.3%, nicely below typical historic rates in this segment."

COVID-19 Pandemic

The coronavirus disease 2019 ("COVID-19") evolved during the first quarter of 2020 from its epicenter in China into a global pandemic, which has resulted in a severe global health crisis that drove a dramatic slowdown in global economic and social activity. COVID-19 started to impact Regal's business in China early in the first quarter, and as the virus spread and the quarter progressed, the virus increasingly impacted the Company's business on a global scale.

In the face of this global crisis, management's first priority has been the health and safety of Regal associates. In response, Regal has implemented a host of measures to help its associates stay safe - such as practicing social distancing, making face masks mandatory across its sites globally, having associates work from home where possible, and conducting temperature checks, at all manufacturing facilities globally, as permitted by local laws. In addition, Regal's senior leaders of the Company's organization are meeting at least daily to monitor, and react to, any developments that arise related to the virus, and to the global Regal team's health and safety.

Regal is an essential business, and as such has worked to ensure that its global manufacturing operations have remained operational. Regal's products are essential components in a range of applications used in the medical, food & beverage, pharmaceutical, transportation, and data communications industries, among many others. At present, the Company's global manufacturing operations are largely operational, with plant closures, or plants running at reduced rates, in India and Mexico.

During the quarter, Regal took actions to bolster its already very healthy balance sheet. As of the end of the first quarter, the Company's net debt was $760.4 million, and the Company's net debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio was 1.6, well within its comfort zone. In addition, on April 1st, the Company drew down $254.8 million under its revolving credit facility. Combined with prior borrowings, the Company has now borrowed the full $500.0 million under the Company's revolver. After drawing down the full revolver, and as of May 1, 2020, the Company had cash and cash equivalents on hand of approximately $890.0 million.

As part of Regal's ongoing response to the impacts of COVID-19, the Company has taken additional cost actions, on top of the substantial restructuring, supply chain, and 80/20 reorganization efforts that were already underway prior to the existence of the virus. These additional actions include reducing discretionary spending across the organization, deferring new hires outside of mission critical roles, and implementing a series of compensation reductions and furloughs on a global basis. Regal will consider making more permanent changes to its cost structure as the long- and short-term implications of COVID-19 continue to evolve and become more known.

Regal plans to provide additional details on how COVID-19 is impacting its business, and how it is reacting in response, on its first quarter earnings conference call.

2020 Outlook

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, which creates significant uncertainty around, among other factors, the demand environment for the Company's products in the near- and mid-term, the Company is withdrawing its previously communicated guidance for the full year 2020 for revenue growth and adjusted EPS. The Company will be vigilantly monitoring the impacts of COVID-19 on the Company's end markets, manufacturing footprint, and supply chain, and will seek to re-introduce guidance as soon as the Company believes it can provide a forecast that is useful for the investment community.

NON-GAAP MEASURES AND OTHER DEFINITIONS
Unaudited
(Dollars in Millions, Except per Share Data)

We prepare financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). We also periodically disclose certain financial measures in our quarterly earnings releases, on investor conference calls, and in investor presentations and similar events that may be considered "non-GAAP" financial measures. This additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our results of operations prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

In this earnings release, we disclose the following non-GAAP financial measures, and we reconcile these measures in the tables below to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures: adjusted diluted earnings per share (both historical and projected), adjusted income from operations, adjusted operating margin, adjusted net sales, net debt, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted operating leverage, adjusted net income attributable to Regal Beloit Corporation, free cash flow, free cash flow as a percentage of adjusted net income attributable to Regal Beloit Corporation, adjusted income before taxes, adjusted provision for income taxes, adjusted effective tax rate, net sales from ongoing business, adjusted income from operations of ongoing business, ongoing business adjusted operating margin and adjusted diluted earnings per share for ongoing business. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful measures for providing investors with additional information regarding our results of operations and for helping investors understand and compare our operating results across accounting periods and compared to our peers. Our management primarily uses adjusted income from operations, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, and adjusted operating leverage to help us manage and evaluate our business and make operating decisions, while adjusted diluted earnings per share, net debt, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net sales, adjusted net income attributable to Regal Beloit Corporation, free cash flow, free cash flow as a percentage of adjusted net income attributable to Regal Beloit Corporation, adjusted income before taxes, adjusted provision for income taxes, adjusted effective tax rate, net sales from ongoing business, adjusted income from operations of ongoing business, ongoing business adjusted operating margin and adjusted diluted earnings per share for ongoing business are primarily used to help us evaluate our business and forecast our future results. Accordingly, we believe disclosing and reconciling each of these measures helps investors evaluate our business in the same manner as management.

In addition to these non-GAAP measures, we also use the term "organic sales" to refer to GAAP sales from existing operations excluding any sales from acquired businesses recorded prior to the first anniversary of the acquisition ("net sales from business acquired") and excluding any sales from business divested/to be exited ("net sales from business divested/to be exited") recorded prior to the first anniversary of the exit and excluding the impact of foreign currency translation. The impact of foreign currency translation is determined by translating the respective period's organic sales using the currency exchange rates that were in effect during the prior year periods. We use the term "organic sales growth" to refer to the increase in our sales between periods that is attributable to organic sales. For further clarification, we may use the term "acquisition growth" to refer to the increase in our sales between periods that is attributable to acquisition sales.
