Enerpac Tool Group Reports Fourth Quarter 2019 Results

Fourth Quarter 2019 Highlights*

  • Net sales from continuing operations were $158 million for the quarter.  Core sales decreased 3% on a year-over-year basis resulting from planned strategic exits as well as softening in certain markets and geographies.  Foreign currency decreased net sales an additional 2%.
  • GAAP operating margin from continuing operations was 5.1% for the quarter versus 11.7% in the fourth quarter 2018.  Adjusted operating margin from continuing operations was flat year-over-year at 12.1%.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin from continuing operations was 14.8% in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to 15.3% in the comparable prior year period.
  • GAAP diluted earnings (loss) per share (“EPS”) from continuing operations was ($0.01) in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, versus $0.18 in the comparable period in 2018.  Adjusted EPS from continuing operations was $0.21, in both the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 and 2018.
  • Repurchased approximately one million shares of common stock for approximately $22 million and reduced debt in the quarter approximately $15 million, consistent with capital allocation priorities.
  • Continued reduction in year-over-year leverage (Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA), achieving 1.7x at the end of fourth quarter 2019, down from 1.9x at the end of fourth quarter 2018.
  • Earlier in the quarter, announced the signing of a definitive agreement with One Rock Capital Partners to sell the Engineered Components & Systems (“EC&S”) segment (excluding Cortland U.S.), which is reflected as discontinued operations.  Continue to expect a calendar 2019 fourth quarter close.

MILWAUKEE--()--Enerpac Tool Group, which is the doing business name of Actuant Corporation, (NYSE: ATU) (the “Company”) today announced results for its fiscal 2019 fourth quarter ended August 31, 2019.

“Fiscal 2019 has been a year of transformation for our organization with the announcement of the EC&S divestiture, which is instrumental in advancing our strategy as a pure play industrial tools and services company, and the recent launch of our new business name, Enerpac Tool Group. As planned, our portfolio optimization continued as we exited certain unprofitable parts of the service business in the quarter, which we expect will result in incremental profitability. We also continued to execute on our capital allocation strategy in the quarter, as demonstrated by our share repurchases and additional debt reduction, while ensuring we retain the balance sheet flexibility to support organic growth and acquisition opportunities,” commented Randy Baker, Enerpac Tool Group’s President and CEO.

Mr. Baker continued, “Consistent with most global industrial economic indicators, we saw a softening top line in the fourth quarter which caused our results to be below expectations. We believe the strategic growth and cost actions we are taking position us well for the future despite moderating market conditions.”

  • Fourth quarter fiscal 2019 net sales were $144.6 million, 6% lower than the prior year’s fiscal fourth quarter. Core sales decreased 4% and the impact of foreign currency exchange rates decreased net sales by 2% year-over-year.
  • The decrease in revenue is attributable to the intentional exit of certain unprofitable portions of the business along with global economic uncertainty that created additional headwinds, which were most pronounced in Europe.
  • Adjusted operating profit margin of 18.8% in the quarter was flat year-over-year due to decreased sales volume offset by continued product margin expansion and lower incentive compensation expense.

Corporate Expenses and Income Taxes (excluding one-time tax items)

  • Corporate expenses from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 were $9.7 million, $0.6 million higher than the comparable prior year period, primarily resulting from higher insurance costs. Corporate costs included $3.3 million and $3.8 million of costs previously allocated to the EC&S segment in the fourth quarters of fiscal 2019 and 2018, respectively.
  • The fourth quarter effective income tax rate from continuing operations of approximately (5%) was lower than the prior year rate of 0.5%.

Discontinued Operations

Discontinued operations represent the operating results for the EC&S segment, excluding Cortland U.S. and the previously divested Viking business, for all periods presented. The fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 includes a $265 million non-cash, after-tax impairment charge reflecting both the write-down of the net assets held for sale to their net realizable value and the reserve of the accumulation of currency translation losses associated with the EC&S businesses being divested.

Outlook

Mr. Baker said, “With our transformation to Enerpac Tool Group we are creating a very high quality company with market leading products, top tier margins and a commitment to growth. In fiscal 2020, we will continue to focus on our growth initiatives, building on our premier Enerpac brand. We will also continue taking strategic actions to exit low margin product lines, and have already completed one small product line divestiture in fiscal 2020 and expect to complete another by the end of the first quarter. We expect these actions will provide significant improvement to our bottom line. While our fiscal 2020 outlook reflects our cautious view of the year given current economic uncertainty in our end-markets, we are confident in the decisive actions we are taking and our ability to execute on our strategy to create shareholder value.”

The company provides the following outlook for continuing operations for fiscal 2020***:

Sales range of $575 to $600 million which assumes:

  • Strategic exits (including product line divestitures and service restructuring) of approximately $55 million;
  • Foreign currency impact from stronger dollar of approximately $7 million; and
  • New product development and other commercial actions partially offset by a tepid market environment.

EBITDA range of $94 to $104 million, which is an approximate 17% EBITDA margin and greater than a 200bp improvement from fiscal year 2019, which assumes:

  • Benefit from strategic exits and approximately $9 million reduction of corporate overhead costs previously allocated to the EC&S segment
  • Partially offset by certain expenses to be incurred in the year as well as the impact of the stronger dollar

EPS range of $0.68 to $0.81/share
Full year free cash flow of $50 to $75 million

For the first quarter 2020, we expect:

  • Net sales: $135 to $144 million;
  • Adjusted EBITDA: $17.5 to $20.5 million; and
  • Adjusted EPS: $0.08 to $0.12.

All guidance excludes restructuring, impairment and divestiture charges, one-time tax adjustments and the impact of potential future acquisitions, dispositions, share repurchases and tariffs.

EC&S Divestiture Process

As previously announced, the Company signed a definitive agreement with One Rock Capital Partners in July 2019 to sell the EC&S segment and continues to expect to close the transaction in the fourth quarter of calendar 2019.

FOOTNOTES
Note: The total of the individual quarters may not equal the annual or year-to-date total due to rounding. The continuing operations and discontinued operations earning (loss) per share may not equal total earning (loss) per share due to rounding.
 

(1)

Adjusted earnings from continuing operations and adjusted diluted earnings per share represent net earnings (loss) and diluted earnings (loss) per share per the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations net of charges or credits for items to be highlighted for comparability purposes. These measures are not calculated based upon generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and should not be considered as an alternative to net earnings (loss) or diluted earnings (loss) per share or as an indicator of the Company's operating performance. However, this presentation is important to investors for understanding the operating results of the current portfolio of Actuant companies. The total of the individual components may not equal due to rounding and the impact of share dilution on the calculation of the net loss per share and discontinued operations per share.
 

(2)

EBITDA represents net earnings (loss) from continuing operations before financing costs, net, income tax (benefit) expense, and depreciation & amortization. EBITDA is not a calculation based upon GAAP. The amounts included in the EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA calculation, however, are derived from amounts included in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net earnings (loss), operating profit (loss) or operating cash flows. Actuant has presented EBITDA because it regularly reviews this performance measure. In addition, EBITDA is used by many of our investors and lenders, and is presented as a convenience to them. The EBITDA measure presented may not always be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies due to differences in the components of the calculation.

FOOTNOTES
NOTE: Management does not provide guidance on GAAP financial measures as we are unable to predict and estimate with certainty items such as potential impairments, refinancing costs, business divestiture gains/losses, discrete tax adjustments, or other items impacting GAAP financial metrics. As a result, we have included above only those items about which we are aware and are reasonably likely to occur during the guidance period covered.
