MINNEAPOLIS--()--Tennant Company (“Tennant”) (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 $292.2 million and net earnings of $12.7 million, or $0.69 per share, and adjusted net earnings of $15.1 million, or $0.82 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. The 2018 second quarter reported results reflected $3.1 million in pre-tax expenses, or $0.13 per share, related to non-operational special items, primarily IPC acquisition integration costs. Additionally, the 2018 second quarter results included pre-tax expense of $5.5 million, or $0.23 per share, from amortization of the intangible assets related to the IPC acquisition and discrete tax benefits of approximately $3.0 million, or $0.16 per share. Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) in the 2018 second quarter climbed to $35.7 million, or 12.2 percent of sales, from $29.8 million, or 11.0 percent of sales, in the year-ago quarter. (See the Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Table).

“Our strategy is to take full advantage of Tennant’s broader geographic footprint and product platform to support two main objectives: driving sustainable growth and operational effectiveness,” said Chris Killingstad, Tennant Company's president and chief executive officer. “During the second quarter, we again made broad progress across these strategies. We posted organic revenue growth in every geographic region for the third consecutive quarter. We had revenue growth across all of our channels, with particular strength in our strategic accounts. We continued improving our field-service utilization and manufacturing productivity. We also made efficient use of our expense structure and substantially improved our cash flow. We are pleased with our progress to date and are confident in the underlying performance of the business.”

Second Quarter Operating Review
The company's 2018 second quarter consolidated net sales of $292.2 million grew approximately 7.9 percent over the same period last year. This includes a 2.7 percent benefit from foreign currency and an organic growth of 5.2 percent. Organic growth was driven by improvement in all regions, with notable performance in the Americas and EMEA regions.

Sales in the Americas region improved 5.7 percent, or 6.0 percent organically, reflecting the strength in all channels, especially strategic accounts and North American service, parts and consumables business. Sales in the Americas region also reflects 16.9 percent organic growth in the Latin American region led by industrial equipment sales in South America and broad-based strength in Brazil. Sales in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region were up 13.0 percent, or 3.6 percent organically, reflecting strong growth across the entire region. Sales in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region rose 7.2 percent, or 5.1 percent organically.

Gross margin in the 2018 second quarter was 40.7 percent, compared to 38.6 percent in the same period last year. The prior year gross margin rate included a $6.2 million, or 230-basis-point, acquisition-related charge. Excluding the charge, the prior year gross margin rate was 40.9 percent. The 20-basis-point decline reflects robust strategic account sales impacting the company’s mix and manufacturing productivity issues associated with raw material and labor shortages. These factors were partially offset by improved operational performance in both manufacturing and service that are the result of Tennant’s operational effectiveness strategies. The company remains intently focused on gross margin expansion. (See the Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Table.)

Research and development (R&D) expense for the 2018 second quarter totaled $7.9 million, or 2.7 percent of sales, versus $7.9 million, or 2.9 percent of sales, a year ago. The R&D expense ratio for the second quarter compared to last year reflects the impact of 2018 higher revenue and the timing of anticipated project spend in 2018. Tennant remains committed to investing in a robust pipeline of new products and technologies.

Selling and administrative (S&A) expense in the 2018 second quarter was $91.9 million, or 31.4 percent of sales, compared to $87.3 million, or 32.2 percent of sales, a year ago. The second quarters of 2018 and 2017 included non-operational costs of $3.1 million and $4.9 million, respectively. Excluding these items, S&A expense as a percent of sales was flat at 30.4 percent. (See the Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Table.) In addition, the second quarter of 2018 included a non-cash amortization expense related to the IPC acquisition of $5.5 million, or 1.9 percent of sales, compared to $3.1 million, or 1.1 percent of sales, in last year’s second quarter. Tennant continues to leverage disciplined spending control with investments in key growth initiatives.

During the 2018 second quarter, Tennant realized two discrete tax benefits, totaling approximately $3.0 million, or $0.16 per share, resulting from a favorable ruling from Italian tax authorities related to the deductibility of interest expense in Italy and higher levels of soon-to-expire stock options that were exercised in the quarter. These items positively impacted the adjusted tax rate by approximately 18 percentage points.

Tennant’s 2018 second quarter net earnings were $12.7 million, compared to a net loss of $2.6 million in the 2017 second quarter. Excluding the non-operational items, the 2018 second quarter net earnings were $15.1 million, up 42 percent compared to $10.6 million in the 2017 second quarter. (See the Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Table.)

During the 2018 second quarter, Tennant generated cash flow from operations of $20.4 million, compared to net cash flow from operations of $8.6 million in the 2017 second quarter. The company also repaid $14.0 million in outstanding debt and paid $3.8 million in cash dividends to shareholders during the second quarter.

2018 Business Outlook
Killingstad concluded, “We remain confident in our key global strategies: maintaining our robust new product and technology leadership; successfully completing the integration of IPC; expanding and diversifying our global market coverage; improving operating effectiveness; and strengthening our financial position. We have more progress to make; however, these strategies have created significant momentum for Tennant Company to date and they remain essential to generating value for our shareholders. While we anticipate headwinds in the back half of 2018 from tariff impacts and raw material and labor availability constraints, we are pleased with the platform we are building, which gives us the confidence to increase our previously announced 2018 full year guidance ranges for net sales, EPS, adjusted EPS and adjusted EBITDA.”

Tennant is increasing the low and high end of the previously announced 2018 full year guidance range for net sales by $20 million and $10 million, respectively. The company anticipates net sales to be in the range of $1.10 billion to $1.12 billion, up 9.7 percent to 11.7 percent compared to the prior year and reflecting organic growth of 4.0 percent to 4.5 percent. Based on the anticipated higher level of sales, Tennant is increasing the low and high end of adjusted earnings per share to a range of $1.95 to $2.10. This excludes $4.0 million to $5.0 million of special items, including IPC acquisition and integration costs. The company also is increasing the 2018 full year reported GAAP earnings to a range of $1.75 to $1.90 per share and adjusted EBITDA to a range of $117 million to $121 million.

Tennant's 2018 annual financial outlook includes the following additional assumptions:

  • Reasonable growth in all regions, especially strategic accounts in North America;
  • Gross margin performance of approximately 41.0 percent;
  • R&D expense of approximately 3.0 percent of sales;
  • Capital expenditures in the range of $25 million to $30 million; and
  • An effective tax rate of approximately 20 percent.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This news release and the related conference call include presentation of non-GAAP measures that include or exclude special items. Management believes that the non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors regarding the company’s results of operations and financial condition because they permit a more meaningful comparison and understanding of Tennant Company’s operating performance for the current, past or future periods. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to monitor and evaluate ongoing operating results and trends, and to gain an understanding of the comparative operating performance of the company.

We believe that disclosing Selling and Administrative Expense - as adjusted, Profit from Operations - as adjusted, Operating Margin - as adjusted, Profit Before Income Taxes - as adjusted, Income Tax Expense - as adjusted, Net Earnings Attributable to Tennant Company - as adjusted, and Net Earnings Attributable to Tennant Company per Share - as adjusted (collectively, the “Non-GAAP Measures”), excluding the impacts from restructuring charge, acquisition costs, certain non-operational professional services, and debt financing costs write-off, are useful to investors as a measure of operating performance. 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 Selling and Administrative Expense - 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 restructuring charge, acquisition costs, and certain non-operational professional services. We calculate Income Tax Expense - as adjusted by adding back the tax effect of the restructuring charge, acquisition costs, certain non-operational professional services and debt financing costs write-off. We calculate Net Earnings Attributable to Tennant Company - as adjusted by adding back the after-tax effect of the restructuring charge, acquisition costs, certain non-operational professional services, and debt financing costs write-off. We calculate Net Earnings Attributable to Tennant Company per Share - as adjusted by adding back the after-tax effect of the restructuring charge, acquisition costs, certain non-operational professional services, debt financing costs write-off and dividing the result by the diluted weighted average shares outstanding.

We believe that disclosing Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) and EBITDA Margin, excluding the impact from restructuring charge, acquisition costs, certain non-operational professional services, and debt financing costs write-off (EBITDA - as adjusted) and EBITDA margin - as adjusted, is useful to investors as a measure of operating performance. We use these measures to monitor and evaluate operating performance. EBITDA - as adjusted and EBITDA Margin - as adjusted are financial measures that do not reflect GAAP. We calculate EBITDA - as adjusted by adding back the pre-tax effect of the restructuring charge, acquisition costs, certain non-operating professional services, debt financing costs write-off 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.

Investors should consider these non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, not as a substitute for, or better than, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of the components of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Table to this earnings release.
