Tennant Company Reports 2017 Third Quarter Results

Record net sales for a third quarter of $262 million, up approximately 31 percent; Organic sales rose 1.3 percent;

Earnings per share of $0.20 include special items primarily related to IPC Group acquisition that reduced earnings by $0.12 per share; Adjusted EPS of $0.32;

Adjusted EBITDA of 10.7% improved over prior year by 40 basis points; Strong cash flow in the quarter enabled debt reduction of $23 million;

Included in both reported and adjusted earnings per share is non-cash expense for amortization of IPC Group intangible assets of $0.29 per share;

Company reaffirms 2017 full year net sales guidance range and lowers EPS guidance range to primarily reflect slower progress with gross margin improvements and accelerated non-cash purchase accounting amortization for IPC Group.

MINNEAPOLIS--()--Tennant Company (NYSE: TNC), a world leader in designing, manufacturing and marketing of solutions that help create a cleaner, safer, healthier world, today reported net sales of $262 million, a record for a third quarter, and net income of $3.6 million, or $0.20 per share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.

The 2017 third quarter included special items that reduced earnings by a total of $0.12 per share for acquisition costs related to the IPC Group (IPC) acquisition. Further, the third quarter results also included $7.3 million, or $0.29 per share, which was $5.2 million, or $0.21 per share, higher than was included in the company’s prior guidance, from accelerated amortization for the intangible assets as the company refined its purchase accounting and related amortization method for the IPC acquisition. (See the Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Table.)

“Our third quarter results reflect slower growth in North America attributed to timing of key strategic account deals, the restructuring of our field service team, continued manufacturing inefficiencies and raw material inflation, matters we continue to address,” said Chris Killingstad, Tennant Company's president and chief executive officer. “While we faced some near-term setbacks, we are staying the course strategically and positioning Tennant to be operationally stronger than ever before. We are ahead of our acquisition plans for IPC, our core Tennant EMEA business grew by 14.6 percent in the quarter and a steady stream of new products has raised our vitality index to 47 percent. I remain confident that we are building the right platform for long-term profitable growth.”

Third Quarter Operating Review
The company's 2017 third quarter consolidated net sales of $262 million improved approximately 31 percent over the prior-year quarter, including 28.4 percent from acquisitions. Organic net sales, which exclude the impact of foreign currency exchange, acquisitions and divestitures, rose approximately 1.3 percent. 2017 third quarter growth was primarily driven by the company’s Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region, offset by slower sales in North America.

Geographically, sales in the Americas increased 5.7 percent, down 0.2 percent organically due to North American key strategic accounts timing, while sales in the EMEA region were up 169.0 percent, or up 14.6 organically, on strong sales performance in the Western European countries. Sales in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region increased by 18.9 percent, however declined 8.5 percent organically, reflecting declines in Korea, China and the Southeast Asia region.

Tennant's gross margin in the 2017 third quarter was 39.9 percent, and the as-adjusted gross margin was 40.8 percent compared to 42.6 percent in the prior-year quarter. Results are driven by IPC and other geographic sales mix, as well as continued pressure from field service productivity, manufacturing inefficiencies and raw material inflation, matters the company continues to address.

Research and development (R&D) expense for the 2017 third quarter totaled $7.9 million, or 3.0 percent of sales, versus $8.4 million, or 4.2 percent of sales, a year ago. The company continues to invest in developing a robust pipeline of innovative new products and technologies.

Selling and administrative (S&A) expense in the 2017 third quarter was $85.7 million, or 32.7 percent of sales, which includes $23.4 million of IPC-related expenses, including $8.2 million of IPC-related amortization and other acquisition-related expenses. Excluding these costs and IPC-related revenue, S&A expenses were 30.2 percent of sales, as Tennant continues to balance disciplined spending control with investments in key growth initiatives. Tennant’s prior-year quarter S&A expense was $60.6, or 30.3 percent of sales.

Tennant's 2017 third quarter operating profit was $11.0 million, or 4.2 percent of sales. Excluding operating profit (loss) related to IPC, Tennant’s operating profit was $16.7 million, or 8.1 percent of sales, compared to an operating profit of $16.3 million, or 8.1 percent of sales, in the year-ago quarter. The 2017 third quarter Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) as adjusted was $28.0 million, or 10.7 percent of sales, compared to $20.7 million, or 10.3 percent of sales, in the year-ago quarter. (See the Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Table.)

During the 2017 third quarter, Tennant generated cash flow from operations of nearly $35 million, compared to nearly $21 million in the 2016 third quarter. In the 2017 third quarter, the company repaid approximately $23 million in outstanding debt and paid $3.7 million in cash dividends to shareholders. Capital expenditures in the 2017 third quarter totaled $7.1 million compared to $7.7 million in the same period last year.

New Product and Technology Pipeline
This quarter, Tennant launched the new T350 Stand-On Commercial Scrubber, which is an ideal choice for customers who demand high productivity and maneuverability in obstructed spaces. The T350 is the category leader in productivity, cleaning more than 30,000 square feet per hour, and is equipped with Tennant’s exclusive ec-H2O NanoClean®, Smart-Fill automated battery watering, IRIS® and Pro-Panel® technologies.

“The market is responding positively to our new products. Through the first nine months of 2017, 47 percent of our equipment sales stemmed from products released within the last three years, far ahead of our 30 percent target. With the inclusion of IPC, our product portfolio today addresses a much larger cross-section of the market and wider range of customers, especially in certain regions where mid-tier offerings are increasingly relevant. Tennant has a robust and highly promising new product pipeline and we expect to maintain our momentum in this vital area in 2018 and beyond. The improved diversity in our offerings, along with our continued investment in new technologies, such as remote diagnostics, telemetry-based asset management, lithium ion batteries and fuel cells, autonomous guided vehicles (AGV) and others, will play an important role in our growth,” said Chris Killingstad.

2017 Business Outlook
Killingstad concluded, “We’re continuing to execute on our strategies while advancing solid operating fundamentals within our business. As we move toward the end of 2017, we remain focused on several key areas: pursuing gross margin recovery through better productivity in our service organization, plants and supply chain, continuing our integration of IPC, solid sales execution across all geographies, and robust cash generation to enable reduction of our debt.”

Tennant Company continues to estimate 2017 full year net sales in the range of $960 million to $990 million, reflecting an increase of 18.7 percent to 22.4 percent from fiscal 2016 results, which includes an approximate 1 percent to 2 percent of organic growth. Tennant now expects 2017 full year reported GAAP earnings in the range of $0.05 to $0.25 per share, and adjusted earnings per share in the range of $1.50 to $1.70, reflecting slower progress against our gross margin recovery initiatives. The difference between GAAP and adjusted earnings guidance is related to the year-to-date non-GAAP adjustments of $1.40 per share and anticipated fourth quarter integration expenses.

Previously, the company expected 2017 full year reported GAAP earnings in the range of $0.85 to $1.05 per share and adjusted earnings in the range of $2.20 to $2.40 per share. The change in guidance is attributed to continued operational challenges within our business, including field service productivity, manufacturing efficiencies, and raw material inflation, which accounted for approximately $0.37 per share. In addition, the company accelerated the amortization for certain of the IPC-related intangible assets as it continues to finalize the accounting for the IPC acquisition, which resulted in additional expense of $8.4 million, or $0.33 per share. In total the amortization expense related to IPC for 2017 is expected to be $15.7 million, or $0.61 per share. For the 2016 full year, earnings per share totaled $2.59 on net sales of $808.6 million.

Tennant’s 2017 annual financial outlook includes the following additional assumptions:

  • Continued stable economy in North America, modest improvement in Europe and a challenging business environment in APAC;
  • Foreign currency exchange impact net sales from 0 percent to negative 1 percent;
  • Gross margin performance in the range of 41 percent to 42 percent;
  • R&D expense in the range of 3 percent to 4 percent of sales;
  • Capital expenditures in the range of $20 million to $25 million; and
  • An effective tax rate of approximately 29 percent.

We use these as one measure to monitor and evaluate operating performance. The Non-GAAP measures are financial measures that do not reflect United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). We calculate Gross Margin - as adjusted, Profit from Operations - as adjusted, Operating Margin - as adjusted, and Profit Before Income Taxes - as adjusted by adding back the pre-tax effect of the inventory fair value adjustment, restructuring charge, acquisition costs, pension settlement, and debt financing costs write-off. We calculate Profit from Operations, excluding IPC-related profit - as adjusted and Operating Margin, excluding IPC-related profit - as adjusted by adding back the pre-tax effect of the inventory fair value adjustment, the restructuring charge, acquisition costs, pension settlement and IPC-related loss/profit from operations.

We calculate EBITDA - as adjusted by adding back the pre-tax effect of the inventory fair value adjustment, restructuring charge, acquisition costs, pension settlement, acquisition-related currency loss, Interest Income, Interest Expense, Income Tax Expense, Depreciation Expense, and Amortization Expense to Net Earnings (Loss) - as Reported. We calculate EBITDA Margin - as adjusted by dividing EBITDA - as adjusted by Net Sales.
