Manitowoc Foodservice Reports Another Strong Margin Quarter

Savings from Simplification and Right-Sizing initiatives drive year-over-year margin improvement; 2016 margin and EPS guidance ranges reconfirmed

NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla.--()--Manitowoc Foodservice, Inc. (NYSE:MFS), today announced financial results for its 2016 third quarter. Net sales in the third quarter were $384.0 million compared to $425.3 million in last year’s third quarter, a 9.7 percent decrease. However, prior year third quarter net sales included $38.5 million from Kysor Panel Systems (“KPS”), which was sold in December 2015 and excluded $2.7 million from Welbilt Manufacturing (Thailand), Ltd. (“Welbilt”), previously a 50 percent-owned joint venture of which we acquired the remaining 50 percent interest in October 2015. Adjusted for these items, organic net sales decreased by 1.4 percent in the third quarter compared to last year’s third quarter. In addition, foreign currency translation negatively impacted 2016 third quarter sales by $5.7 million, or 1.5 percent, resulting in a constant currency organic net sales increase of 0.1 percent.

Year-to-date, net sales were $1,077.9 million compared to $1,178.4 million in 2015, an 8.5 percent decrease. Prior year net sales included $99.0 million from KPS and excluded $6.5 million from Welbilt. Adjusted for these items, year-to-date organic net sales decreased by 0.7 percent compared to the same period in 2015. In addition, foreign currency translation negatively impacted year-to-date sales by $17.4 million, or 1.6 percent, resulting in a constant currency organic net sales increase of 0.9 percent compared to the same period in 2015.

Net earnings in the third quarter were $24.9 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.18, compared to $41.1 million and $0.30 per share on a carve-out basis in the third quarter of 2015. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted 2016 third quarter net earnings by $0.5 million. Excluding separation, restructuring and asset impairment expenses, adjusted net earnings were $27.4 million and adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.20 in the third quarter versus $42.2 million and $0.31 per share, respectively, on a carve-out basis in the third quarter of 2015. Earnings from operations were $60.6 million in the third quarter compared to $53.9 million in last year’s third quarter. As a percentage of net sales, earnings from operations were 15.8 percent in the quarter versus 12.7 percent in last year’s third quarter. Earnings before interest, taxes, other (income) expense and amortization (excluding separation, restructuring and asset impairment expenses), or “Adjusted Operating EBITA”, were $72.1 million in the third quarter versus $63.6 million in last year’s third quarter, a 13.4 percent increase. As a percentage of net sales, our third quarter Adjusted Operating EBITA margin was 18.8 percent versus 15.0 percent last year, a 380 basis point improvement. Adjusted Operating EBITA margin in the quarter also improved by 270 basis points versus the second quarter of this year. Prior year third quarter Adjusted Operating EBITA included $5.0 million from KPS and excluded $0.4 million from Welbilt. The main drivers of the margin improvement in the third quarter were savings from our Simplification and Right-Sizing initiatives and improved pricing and discounting discipline, partially offset by lower fixed cost absorption and higher incentive compensation.

Year-to-date, net earnings were $58.1 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.42, compared to $92.0 million and $0.67 per share on a carve-out basis for the same period in 2015. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted 2016 year-to-date net earnings by $0.6 million. Excluding separation, restructuring and asset impairment separation expenses, adjusted net earnings were $64.3 million and adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.46 year-to-date versus $93.7 million and $0.68 per share, respectively, on a carve-out basis for the same period in 2015. Earnings from operations were $144.1 million year-to-date compared to $119.1 million for the same period in 2015. As a percentage of net sales, earnings from operations were 13.4 percent year-to-date versus 10.1 percent for the same period in 2015. Adjusted Operating EBITA was $177.2 million year-to-date versus $145.5 million in the same period of 2015, a 21.8 percent increase. As a percentage of net sales, year-to-date 2016 Adjusted Operating EBITA margin was 16.4 percent versus 12.3 percent for the same period in 2015, a 410 basis point improvement. Year-to-date Adjusted Operating EBITA in the prior year included $9.9 million from KPS and excluded $0.5 million from Welbilt. A reconciliation of GAAP net earnings and diluted earnings per share to adjusted net earnings, adjusted diluted earnings per share, and Adjusted Operating EBITA for both the quarter and year-to-date is provided later in this announcement.

“We delivered our fifth consecutive quarter of strong year-over-year Adjusted EBITA margin improvement through continued great execution of our Simplification and Right-Sizing initiatives,” said Hubertus Muehlhaeuser, Manitowoc Foodservice’s President and CEO. “Within Simplification, we pruned approximately 1 percent of our equipment SKUs during the quarter, bringing our total equipment SKU reduction to nearly 9 percent since we adopted the 80/20 methodology. While we have previously completed all of the Right-Sizing actions that we originally announced a year ago, the benefits from those actions are still driving year-over-year margin favorability. In addition, we made good progress this quarter on the second round of Right-Sizing that we announced last quarter. We completed the closure of the Singapore plant after successfully transferring its production to our plants in Prachinburi, Thailand and Foshan, China. The planned closure of our Sellersburg, Indiana plant is also on track to be completed by early 2017. We also continued the journey of de-levering our balance sheet this quarter with a $26.7 million net debt reduction in the quarter.”

“Third quarter organic net sales in constant currency were flat primarily due to ongoing softness of sales into our large Quick Service Restaurant (“QSR”) and fast-casual accounts and a slight decline in sales into the general market in the Americas. Despite a slowdown in end market growth rates in the Americas since we began the year, we remain well-positioned to benefit from our new product introductions as they begin to ship in the fourth quarter. However, much of the benefit has now shifted into 2017 due to changes in the timing of orders from our customers.”

“Our message remains consistent: our prime strategic objective is the achievement of profitable growth on both the top- and bottom-lines. To achieve this sustainably, the initial priority on this multi-year journey is to increase our margins to industry-competitive levels by focusing on improving our operations and decreasing product cost. While we have made great progress to date, we are still early in the journey and it is critical to our long-term success to remain very disciplined in the ongoing execution of our Simplification and Right-Sizing initiatives to improve our cost structure. At the same time, we are positioning ourselves to capture profitable sales opportunities with our focus on product innovations and selling system solutions that take advantage of our full product portfolio," concluded Muehlhaeuser.

Segment Discussion

Net sales in our Americas segment decreased 11.8 percent in the quarter to $316.9 million from $359.4 million in last year’s third quarter. Adjusted for the divestiture of KPS, organic net sales decreased by 1.2 percent from $320.9 million in the same period last year. Intersegment net sales increased $0.1 million and organic third party net sales decreased $4.1 million in the quarter compared to last year’s third quarter. The third party net sales decrease was driven by lower sales volumes of both hot-side and cold-side products in the third quarter compared to last year's third quarter, partly offset by improved price realization. In addition, foreign currency had a $0.7 million negative impact on organic third party net sales in the quarter. Year-to-date, net sales were $881.7 million versus $999.8 million last year. Adjusted for the divestiture of KPS, net sales decreased 2.1 percent from $900.8 million in the year-to-date period last year. Intersegment sales decreased $6.9 million and organic third party net sales decreased $12.2 million year-to-date compared to the same period last year. Year-to-date, foreign currency translation had a $6.8 million negative impact on organic third party net sales. Third quarter Operating EBITA in the Americas segment was $64.5 million compared to $61.6 million in the third quarter of 2015. As a percentage of net sales, our Operating EBITA margin was 20.4 percent in the third quarter versus 17.1 percent in the same period last year. The Operating EBITA margin increase was primarily driven by savings from our Simplification and Right-Sizing initiatives, improvement in our KitchenCare operations, operating efficiency improvements, improved pricing and the sale of KPS. Year-to-date, Americas segment Operating EBITA was $166.2 million versus $141.3 million for the same period last year. As a percentage of net sales, year-to-date Operating EBITA was 18.8 percent versus 14.1 percent for the same period last year.

Net sales in our EMEA segment were $67.9 million, a 1.5 percent decrease from $68.9 million in the third quarter of 2015. Intersegment net sales increased $0.5 million and third party net sales decreased $1.5 million in the quarter compared to last year’s third quarter. The third party net sales decrease was driven primarily by a negative impact from foreign currency translation of $4.3 million in the third quarter, partially offset by increases of hot-side products including our new Merrychef® eikon® e2s high-speed ovens. Year-to-date, net sales in our EMEA segment were $212.8 million versus $214.9 million last year. Intersegment net sales decreased $10.2 million and third party net sales increased $8.1 million year-to-date compared to the same period last year. Year-to-date, foreign currency translation had a $8.0 million negative impact on third party net sales. Third quarter Operating EBITA in the EMEA segment was $9.7 million compared to $5.0 million in the third quarter of 2015. As a percentage of net sales, our Operating EBITA margin was 14.3 percent in the third quarter versus 7.3 percent in the same period last year. The Operating EBITA margin increase was primarily driven by savings from our Simplification and Right-Sizing initiatives and better product mix from our new product introductions, partially offset by the impact of foreign currency translation. Year-to-date, the EMEA segment Operating EBITA was $26.6 million versus $15.5 million in the same period last year. As a percentage of net sales, year-to-date Operating EBITA was 12.5 percent versus 7.2 percent in the same period last year.

Net sales in our APAC segment were $52.5 million, a 8.0 percent increase from $48.6 million from last year’s third quarter. Adjusted for the acquisition of Welbilt, organic net sales increased 2.3 percent from $51.3 million in the same period last year. Intersegment net sales increased $1.1 million and organic third party net sales increased $0.1 million in the quarter compared to last year’s third quarter. Within organic third party net sales, higher sales of hot-side products were offset by foreign currency translation, which had a $0.7 million negative impact on organic third party net sales in the quarter. Year-to-date, net sales in our APAC segment were $134.5 million versus $135.5 million in the same period last year. Adjusted for the acquisition of Welbilt, organic net sales decreased 5.3 percent from $142.0 million in the same period last year. Intersegment net sales decreased $3.6 million and organic third party net sales decreased $3.9 million year-to-date compared to the same period last year. Year-to-date, foreign currency translation had a $2.6 million negative impact on organic third party net sales. Third quarter Operating EBITA in the APAC segment was $8.3 million compared to $7.7 million in the third quarter of 2015, with the increase being driven primarily by savings from our Simplification and Right-Sizing initiatives. As a percentage of net sales, our Operating EBITA margin remained at 15.8 percent for the third quarter of 2016 and 2015. Year-to-date, the APAC segment Operating EBITA was $15.6 million versus $17.9 million last year. As a percentage of net sales, year-to-date Operating EBITA was 11.6 percent versus 13.2 percent last year.

Liquidity Discussion

Free cash flow was $45.0 million in the quarter. Accounts receivable was a $4.7 million source of cash in the third quarter. Inventory decreased in the quarter by $6.2 million, which was offset by a $6.0 million decrease in accounts payable. Other assets and other current and long-term liabilities were a net $6.0 million source of cash in the third quarter. During the quarter, total debt decreased by $26.7 million primarily from the repayment of $45.0 million principal on Term Loan B, while the outstanding balance on our revolving credit facility increased by $18.0 million.

2016 Guidance

We are reaffirming our full-year 2016 guidance ranges for adjusted operating EBITA margin and adjusted diluted EPS. However, we are anticipating that conditions in the large QSR and fast casual accounts will remain soft. In addition, the U.S. dollar has continued strengthening against other international currencies, resulting in a larger negative impact from foreign currency translation in our organic net sales forecast.

Our guidance is unchanged for the following items:

  • Adjusted operating EBITA margin: between 16 and 17 percent; and
  • Adjusted diluted EPS: between $0.60 and $0.70 per share.
  • Effective tax rate: between 26 and 29 percent excluding discrete items or between 23 and 26 percent inclusive of discrete items realized year-to-date;
  • Amortization expense: between $30 and $33 million; and
  • Depreciation expense: between $17 and $20 million.

In addition, we have adjusted our guidance for the following items:

  • Organic net sales growth: 0 percent to up 2 percent compared to 2015 organic net sales (previous range was up between 1 and 3 percent);
  • Interest expense: now between $84 and $86 million (previous range was between $82 and $86 million);
  • Capital expenditures: now between $16 and $20 million (previous range was between $23 and $27 million); and
  • Debt reduction: now between $100 and $120 million (previous range was between $120 and $140 million).

In addition to analyzing its results on a U.S. GAAP basis, management also reviews its results on an "Operating EBITA" basis. Operating EBITA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, other (income) expense and amortization. Management uses Operating EBITA as the basis on which it evaluates its financial performance and makes resource allocation and other operating decisions. Management considers it important that investors review the same operating information that it uses. In addition, the table below also presents Adjusted Operating EBITA which is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, other (income) expense and amortization plus certain items such as asset impairment, restructuring and separation charges.
