BRISTOL, Conn.--()--Barnes Group Inc. (NYSE: B), an international industrial and aerospace manufacturer and service provider, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2014.

Fourth quarter net sales of $310 million were up 7% from $291 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, driven by organic sales growth of 6% and one additional month of acquisition revenues from the Männer business versus the prior year period. Unfavorable foreign exchange reduced sales by 3%. Income from continuing operations for the fourth quarter was $33.3 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, compared to $26.3 million, or $0.47 per diluted share in the prior year period. On an adjusted basis, income from continuing operations was $0.62 per diluted share, up 9% from $0.57 a year ago. Fourth quarter 2014 adjusted diluted earnings from continuing operations exclude the impact of Männer short-term purchase accounting adjustments of $0.8 million pre-tax and costs related to the closure of production operations at Associated Spring’s Saline, Michigan facility which were $0.5 million pre-tax. Together, these two items contributed $0.02 to adjusted diluted earnings from continuing operations.

For the full year, Barnes Group generated net sales of $1,262 million, up 16% from last year; organic sales growth was 6% while acquisitions contributed 10%. Income from continuing operations was $120.5 million, or $2.16 per diluted share, compared to $72.3 million, or $1.31 per diluted share in 2013. On an adjusted basis, income from continuing operations was $2.34 per diluted share, up 28% from $1.83 a year ago. 2014 adjusted diluted earnings from continuing operations exclude the impact of Männer short-term purchase accounting adjustments of $8.5 million pre-tax, or $0.11 per diluted share, and costs related to the closure of production operations at the Saline, Michigan facility which were $6.0 million pre-tax, or $0.07 per diluted share. For 2013, income from continuing operations included $7.3 million pre-tax, or $0.10 per diluted share, of short-term purchase accounting adjustments and transaction costs related to the acquisition of Männer, $10.5 million pre-tax, or $0.12 per diluted share, of non-recurring CEO transition costs, and a tax charge of $16.4 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, associated with the April 2013 U.S. Tax Court’s unfavorable decision.

A table reconciling 2013 and 2014 non-GAAP adjusted results presented in this release to our GAAP results is included at the end of this press release.

“Barnes Group’s continued execution of its profitable growth strategy has delivered another year of excellent financial performance with an impressive 250 basis point gain in adjusted operating margin and a 28% increase in adjusted earnings from continued operations,” said Patrick J. Dempsey, President and Chief Executive Officer of Barnes Group Inc. “Our relentless focus on driving differentiated industrial technologies and innovative solutions to the customers and end markets we serve is fueling our growth engine and we look forward to carrying that momentum into 2015,” added Dempsey.

Industrial

  • Fourth quarter 2014 sales were $198.2 million, up 8% from $183.7 million in the same period last year. The Männer business, acquired in October 2013, provided $10.4 million of “acquisition” sales while Industrial’s organic sales grew 7% over the prior year period. Unfavorable foreign exchange negatively impacted sales by $9.0 million, or 5%.
  • Operating profit of $27.0 million in the fourth quarter was up 74% from $15.5 million in the prior year period. Operating profit benefited from the contribution of Männer and higher organic sales, and was partially offset by $0.8 million of Männer short-term purchase accounting adjustments and $0.5 million of restructuring charges related to the closure of production operations at the Saline, Michigan facility. Last year’s fourth quarter included $7.3 million of short-term purchase accounting adjustments and transaction costs associated with the Männer acquisition. Excluding the acquisition related expenses and Saline closure costs, adjusted operating profit was $28.3 million, up 24% from a year ago. Adjusted operating margin was 14.3%, up 190 bps from last year’s adjusted operating margin of 12.4%.
  • Full year 2014 sales were $822.1 million, up 20% from $687.6 million last year. The Männer business provided $113.7 million of “acquisition” sales increase while unfavorable foreign exchange negatively impacted sales by $7.3 million, or 1%. Industrial’s organic sales grew 4% over the prior year.
  • Full year operating profit of $108.4 million was up 51% from $71.9 million in the prior year period. Operating profit benefited from the contribution of Männer and higher organic sales, and was partially offset by $8.5 million of Männer short-term purchase accounting adjustments and $6.0 million of restructuring charges related to the closure of production operations at the Saline, Michigan facility. For 2013, operating profit included $7.3 million of short-term purchase accounting adjustments and transaction costs related to the acquisition of Männer and $6.6 million of non-recurring CEO transition costs. Excluding these items, adjusted operating profit was $122.9 million for 2014 versus $85.8 million a year ago, an increase of 43%. Adjusted operating margin was 14.9%, up 240 bps from last year’s adjusted operating margin of 12.5%.

Aerospace

  • Fourth quarter 2014 sales were $112.0 million, up 4% from $107.4 million in the same period last year. Increased sales from the original equipment manufacturing ("OEM") business and aftermarket maintenance, repair and overhaul ("MRO") businesses were partially offset by lower aerospace spare parts sales.
  • Operating profit was $21.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 as compared to $18.6 million for the prior year period. Operating profit in the quarter benefited from the contributions of increased sales in the OEM business, higher sales and profits in the MRO business, and were partially offset by increased employee related costs and the profit impact of lower spare parts sales. Operating margin was 19.3% in the quarter, up 200 basis points from 17.3% a year ago.
  • Full year 2014 sales were $440.0 million, up 9% from $404.0 million in the same period last year. Increased sales from the OEM and MRO businesses were partially offset by lower aerospace spare parts sales.
  • Operating profit was $71.6 million for the full year 2014 as compared to $51.3 million for the prior year. Operating profit benefited from the contributions of increased sales in the OEM business, higher profits in the MRO business, and the absence of an $8.6 million inventory valuation adjustment taken in the third quarter of 2013. These benefits were partially offset by increased employee related costs and the profit impact of lower spare parts sales. For 2013, operating profit included $3.9 million of non-recurring CEO transition costs. Excluding this item, adjusted operating profit for 2013 was $55.2 million. 2014 operating margin increased to 16.3%.
  • Aerospace backlog was $523 million at the end of the fourth quarter, down 6% from last year-end and up 2% from the third quarter of 2014.

Additional Information

  • Interest expense decreased $1.7 million to $11.4 million in 2014 primarily as a result of a lower average interest rate, offset in part by higher average borrowings for the year.
  • The Company's effective tax rate from continuing operations for 2014 was 27.6% compared with 32.8% in 2013. Included in the full year 2013 income tax is a charge of approximately $16 million associated with the April 2013 U.S. Tax Court’s unfavorable decision. Excluding this charge, the full year 2013 adjusted effective tax rate was 17.5%. The effective tax rate increase in 2014 over the adjusted full year 2013 rate is due to a mix of earnings attributable to higher-taxing jurisdictions, the expiration of certain tax holidays, and the increase in the repatriation of a portion of current foreign earnings to the U.S.

2015 Outlook

Barnes Group expects 2015 organic revenue growth of 6% to 9% with total revenue growth of 3% to 6% after consideration of unfavorable foreign exchange. Operating margins are forecasted to be in the range of 16% to 17%. GAAP earnings from continuing operations are expected to be in the range of $2.40 to $2.55 per diluted share. Excluding an approximate $0.02 of remaining Männer short-term purchase accounting adjustments anticipated to be recorded in 2015, adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations is expected to be in the range of $2.42 to $2.57, up 3% to 10% from 2014’s adjusted diluted earnings per share of $2.34. Further, the Company anticipates capital expenditures of approximately $55 to $60 million and cash conversion to approximate 100% of net income.

“Enhanced investments in our businesses, and the smooth integration of recent acquisitions that brought innovative technologies to Barnes Group, have advanced our ability to deliver differentiated industrial technologies to market,” said Christopher J. Stephens, Jr., Senior Vice President, Finance and Chief Financial Officer, Barnes Group Inc. “Our solid balance sheet and the strong cash flow expectation for 2015 position us favorably for further growth investments and acquisition opportunities that support our strategy.”

Notes:

(1) The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. In 2013, net cash provided by operating activities is negatively impacted by $130.0 million of estimated income tax payments related to the gain on the sale of BDNA. The proceeds from the sale are reflected in investing activities. The Company believes that the free cash flow metric is useful to investors and management as a measure of cash generated by business operations that can be used to invest in future growth, pay dividends, repurchase stock and reduce debt. This metric can also be used to evaluate the Company's ability to generate cash flow from business operations and the impact that this cash flow has on the Company's liquidity.

(2) For the purpose of calculating the cash conversion ratio, the Company has excluded the income tax payments related to the gain on the sale of BDNA made during 2013 and the utilization of the related year-end 2013 income tax receivable to offset 2014 payments from free cash flow and the gain on the sale of BDNA from net income.

Notes:

(1) The Company has excluded the following from its "as adjusted" financial measurements: 1) short-term purchase accounting adjustments related to its Männer acquisition in 2014, 2) restructuring charges related to the closure of production operations at the Company's Associated Spring facility located in Saline, Michigan in 2014, 3) short-term purchase accounting adjustments and transaction costs related to its Männer acquisition in 2013, 4) CEO transition costs associated with the modification of outstanding equity awards in 2013 and 5) the tax charge associated with the April 2013 tax court decision in 2013. Management believes that these adjustments provide the Company and its investors with an indication of our baseline performance excluding items that are not considered to be reflective of our ongoing results. Management does not intend results excluding the adjustments to represent results as defined by GAAP, and the reader should not consider it as an alternative measurement calculated in accordance with GAAP, or as an indicator of the Company's performance. Accordingly, the measurements have limitations depending on their use.
