CLEVELAND, OHIO--()--Park-Ohio Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: PKOH) today announced its results for the second quarter of 2017.

SECOND QUARTER RESULTS

Net sales were $350.9 million in the second quarter of 2017, an increase of 6.5% from net sales of $329.4 million in the second quarter of 2016. The Company reported net income attributable to ParkOhio common shareholders of $3.0 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017, compared to $9.0 million, or $0.73 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2016. On an adjusted basis, net income attributable to ParkOhio common shareholders was $0.87 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2017, an increase of 14% compared to $0.76 per diluted share in the 2016 period. The EPS adjustments in the second quarter of 2017, which totaled $0.63 per diluted share, were primarily related to expenses from the Company’s debt refinancing, as described more fully below. Please refer to the table that follows for a reconciliation of net income to adjusted earnings.

Operating results in the 2017 second quarter were higher than the same period a year ago due primarily to higher sales levels and an increase in gross margin, as a percentage of net sales, of 70 basis points. In the second quarter of 2017, operating cash flows were $9.2 million, and the Company ended the quarter with $72.7 million of cash on-hand. EBITDA, as defined was $34.0 million in the second quarter of 2017 compared to $31.3 million in the second quarter of 2016. Please refer to the table that follows for a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA, as defined.

As previously announced, in April, the Company completed the issuance, in a private placement, of $350 million aggregate principal amount of 6.625% Senior Notes due 2027. The proceeds from the issuance were used to repay in full the Company’s previously-outstanding 8.125% Senior Notes due 2021 in the aggregate principal amount of $250 million, the Company’s term loan in the aggregate principal amount of $21 million, and a portion of the borrowings outstanding under the Company’s revolving credit facility. In addition, the Company amended its existing credit agreement to, among other things, provide an increased revolving credit facility of up to $350 million and extend the maturity date of the facility to April 17, 2022.

Also during the second quarter, the Company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Apollo Aerospace Components, completed the acquisition of Aero-Missile Components Inc. (“AMC”) for approximately $10.5 million in cash. AMC is a supply chain management business providing high-quality specialty fasteners and other components to the defense and aerospace markets. The results of AMC are included in our Supply Technologies segment since the date of acquisition.

Edward F. Crawford, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are pleased with our results in the second quarter and believe the refinancing of our bonds and bank facility enhances ParkOhio’s opportunities for future growth. Our 2017 adjusted EPS guidance remains unchanged at $3.15 to $3.35 per diluted share.”
