Jason Industries Reports Fourth Quarter 2019 Results; Acquires Matchless Metal Polishing

 

MILWAUKEE--()--Jason Industries, Inc. (OTCQX: JASN) (“Jason” or the “Company”) today reported its results for both the fourth quarter and full-year 2019.

Fourth Quarter and Full-Year Financial Results

Key financial results for the fourth quarter 2019 versus the year ago period include:

Continuing Operations

  • Net sales of $76.4 million decreased $4.5 million or 5.6 percent, and included a positive 5.9 percent impact from the acquisition of Schaffner and a negative 1.1 percent from foreign currency translation. Organic sales declined 10.4 percent primarily due to overall weaker end-market demand in both Engineered Components and Industrial.
  • Net loss from continuing operations of $16.9 million, or $0.61 diluted loss per share, increased $12.0 million and $0.41 per share.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $2.6 million, or 3.4 percent of net sales, decreased $3.2 million, driven primarily by lower volumes.

Continuing and Discontinued Operations Cash Flows

  • Operating cash flow was negative $5.0 million, a decrease of $14.7 million, primarily due to lower adjusted EBITDA (including a decrease of $5.1 million related to discontinued operations), unfavorable changes in working capital, and $0.8 million of transaction costs primarily related to the Fiber Solutions and Metalex divestitures, partially offset by lower cash taxes.
  • Free cash flow was negative $8.0 million, a decrease of $13.7 million, due to lower operating cash flow, partially offset by lower capital expenditures.

Key financial results for the full year 2019 versus the year ago period include:

Continuing Operations

  • Net sales of $337.9 million decreased $30.1 million or 8.2 percent, and included a positive 3.9 percent impact from the acquisition of a business and a negative 1.9 percent from foreign currency translation. Organic sales declined 10.2 percent primarily due to overall weaker end-market demand in both Engineered Components and Industrial.
  • Net loss of $43.4 million, or $1.64 diluted loss per share, increased $28.8 million and $0.96 per share.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $24.8 million, or 7.3 percent of net sales, decreased $11.8 million, driven primarily by lower overall volumes.

Continuing and Discontinued Operations Cash Flows

  • Operating cash flow was negative $20.8 million, a decrease of $50.6 million, primarily due to lower adjusted EBITDA (including a decrease of $22.7 million related to discontinued operations), $4.5 million of transaction costs primarily related to the Fiber Solutions and Metalex divestitures, and unfavorable changes in working capital, partially offset by lower cash taxes.
  • Free cash flow was negative $32.6 million, a decrease of $48.6 million, due to lower operating cash flow, partially offset by lower capital expenditures.

“Weakness in global industrial markets and our core verticals along with additional reductions in OEM build schedules impacted our fourth quarter results," said Brian Kobylinski, chairman and chief executive officer of Jason. “We continue to work to optimize the business through facility consolidations, cost reductions, and investments in targeted areas of growth and manufacturing efficiency. As part of the strategic alternatives process we completed the next step in our portfolio transformation with the sale of the Metalex business in the quarter."

Highlights during the quarter include:

  • Integration and consolidation of the acquired Schaffner manufacturing facilities is on track and is expected to be completed by the end of the second quarter 2020. During the quarter, the Company completed the sale of the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania facility for $0.5 million in net cash proceeds, with a short-term leaseback ending June 2020 upon ceasing operations. Subsequent to the quarter, the Company completed the shutdown of operations at the Northville, Michigan facility. The integration of Schaffner is expected to result in approximately $3 million of annual cost synergies by mid-2020, with restructuring costs and capital expenditures of approximately $3 million.
  • Subsequent to the quarter, completed the purchase of Matchless Metal Polishing. (“Matchless”) in an all cash transaction valued at $5 million, which includes $1 million of deferred purchase price contingent upon certain performance conditions. Matchless is a manufacturer of high-quality polishing buffs, compounds, and chemicals with annual sales of approximately $8 million, and provides Jason’s Industrial segment with a further expansion of its product line offerings within North America. The acquisition includes the purchase of product lines, customers, and selected assets and does not include manufacturing operations, with Matchless production transitioning to Osborn manufacturing facilities.

Key financial results within the segments for the fourth quarter 2019 versus the year ago period include:

  • Industrial net sales of $47.9 million increased $0.7 million, or 1.6 percent, including a negative foreign currency translation impact of 1.8 percent, and a positive 10.5 percent impact from the Schaffner acquisition. Organic sales decreased 7.1 percent driven by lower volumes due to weak industrial markets in North America, Europe, and Asia. Adjusted EBITDA was $3.2 million, or 6.6 percent of net sales, a decrease of $2.0 million from 10.9 percent of net sales. Adjusted EBITDA decreased on lower volumes, material and wage inflation, and unfavorable product mix, partially offset by higher pricing.
  • Engineered Components net sales of $28.4 million decreased $5.3 million, or 15.6 percent, due to significantly softer demand from OEM customers in heavy industry, turf care, and power sports seating. Adjusted EBITDA was $2.5 million, or 8.7 percent of net sales, compared with 10.0 percent of net sales in the prior year. The Adjusted EBITDA decrease was driven by lower volumes and unfavorable product mix.
  • Corporate expenses of $3.1 million increased $0.3 million versus the prior year.

Strategic Alternatives Update:

  • On August 12, 2019, the Company announced that its Board of Directors had engaged financial advisors to conduct a process to evaluate strategic alternatives, including a potential sale of the Company. Since then, the Company has completed the divestitures of its North American Fiber Solutions and Metalex businesses. The evaluation process continues, and there are no further developments to disclose.
  • On December 13, 2019, the Company completed the sale of the Metalex business within the Engineered Components segment to Morton Global, LLC and MHIG LLC (collectively "Morton Global") with preliminary sale proceeds of $4.8 million net of cash divested, liabilities assumed by the buyer, and transaction costs, subject to a final working capital adjustment. The Metalex business is now reported within discontinued operations for all periods presented. The net proceeds from the Metalex sale were included in a $5.0 million voluntary prepayment of long-term debt in December 2019.

Other Information:

  • Net debt to Adjusted EBITDA on a trailing twelve-month basis was 12.0x as of the end of the fourth quarter, an increase from 5.1x as of the end of 2018. Total liquidity as of the end of the fourth quarter was $102.0 million comprised of $84.5 million of cash and cash equivalents and $17.5 million of availability on revolving loan facilities globally. In connection with the August 30, 2019 sale of the North America Fiber Solutions segment, the Company received net cash proceeds, as defined by the Senior Secured Credit Facilities, $62.6 million. As of December 31, 2019 the remaining net proceeds were $57.6 million following permitted reinvestments. The Company intends to reinvest these net proceeds as permitted under the terms of the Senior Secured Credit Facilities. Permitted reinvestments include capital expenditures, repairs and maintenance and permitted acquisitions, if such reinvestments occur within twelve months following receipt of such net cash proceeds or within 180 days of a contractual commitment if such a commitment is made during the twelve month period. To the extent there are net cash proceeds that are not reinvested during the aforementioned period, a mandatory prepayment of debt is required.

"Jason is now comprised of two profitable, diverse businesses, Osborn and Milsco," continued Kobylinski. "Consistent with our strategy to invest in these industry leaders, we are excited about our Matchless acquisition which extends Osborn's surface solutions capabilities. We remain focused on providing innovative, high-quality products and solutions and maintaining and continuing to improve our operational performance. We thank our customers, suppliers, and employees for their ongoing support as we continue our strategic alternative process to address our capital structure for the long-term."

Non-GAAP and Other Company Information

Included in this press release are certain non-GAAP financial measures designed to complement the financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America because management believes such measures are useful to investors. Because the Company’s calculations of these measures may differ from similar measures used by other companies, you should be careful when comparing the Company’s non-GAAP financial measures to those of other companies. In this earnings release, we disclose the following non-GAAP financial measures, and we reconcile these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures: EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA, and Free Cash Flow.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin - The Company defines EBITDA as net income (loss) from continuing operations before interest expense, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation and amortization. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA, excluding the impact of operational restructuring charges and non-cash or non-operational losses or gains, including goodwill and long-lived asset impairment charges, gains or losses on disposal of property, plant and equipment, integration and other restructuring charges, transaction-related expenses, other professional fees, purchase accounting adjustments, lease expense associated with vacated facilities and non-cash share based compensation expense. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA Margin as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net sales.

Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides a more clear picture of the Company’s operating results by eliminating expenses and income that are not reflective of the underlying business performance. The Company uses this metric to facilitate a comparison of operating performance on a consistent basis from period to period and to analyze the factors and trends affecting its segments. The Company’s internal plans, budgets and forecasts use Adjusted EBITDA as a key metric and the Company uses this measure to evaluate its operating performance and segment operating performance and to determine the level of incentive compensation paid to its employees.

Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA - The Company defines Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA as current and long-term debt plus debt discounts less cash and cash equivalents, divided by pro forma Adjusted EBITDA for the trailing twelve months. Pro forma Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as Adjusted EBITDA as reported plus Adjusted EBITDA of acquisitions prior to the date of the acquisition during the trailing twelve months. Management believes that Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA is useful in assessing the Company’s financial leverage.

Free Cash Flow - The Company defines Free Cash Flow as net cash flows from operating activities (as defined by GAAP) less capital expenditures and cash dividends on preferred stock. Management believes that Free Cash Flow is useful in assessing our ability to generate cash from business operations that is available for strategic capital decisions.

In addition to these non-GAAP financial measures, we also use the term “organic sales” to refer to GAAP net sales from existing operations excluding (i) sales from acquired businesses recorded prior to the first anniversary of the acquisition, (ii) sales from divested businesses or exited non-core businesses, and (iii) the impact of foreign currency translation. The impact of foreign currency translation is calculated as the difference between (a) the period-to-period change in results (excluding acquisitions, divestitures, and exited non-core businesses) and (b) the period-to-period change in results (excluding acquisitions, divestitures, and exited non-core businesses) after applying current period average foreign exchange rates to the prior year period. We use the term “organic sales growth” to refer to the measure of comparing current period organic sales with the corresponding prior year period organic sales.

(1)

 

Restructuring includes costs associated with exit or disposal activities as defined by GAAP related to facility consolidation, including one-time employee termination benefits, costs to close facilities and relocate employees, and costs to terminate contracts other than financing leases in 2018 and financing and operating leases in 2019.

(2)

 

Transaction-related expenses primarily consist of professional fees and other expenses related to acquisitions, divestitures and financing activities.

(3)

 

During 2019, integration and other restructuring costs included $1.0 million of accelerated lease expense related to planned facility consolidations in the engineered components and industrial segments and $0.9 million of integration costs related to an acquisition in the industrial segment. This was offset by $0.8 million due to the reclassification to earnings of a foreign currency translation gain for the wind down and substantial dissolution of certain U.K. entities. During 2018, integration and other restructuring costs included $0.2 million for settlement costs related to a legal claim in the former Assembled Products business in the engineered components segment associated with periods prior to the Company's go public business combination, $0.1 million related to legal entity restructuring activities and $0.1 million associated with the insurance deductible related to a force majeure incident at a supplier in the engineered components segment. The supplier incident had resulted in incremental costs to maintain production throughout 2018, with such costs offset by insurance recoveries received during the third and fourth quarters of 2018. These costs were partially offset by $0.4 million of net legal settlement income related to proceeds from claims in the engineered components segment associated with periods prior to the Company’s go public business combination. Such items are not included in restructuring for GAAP purposes.

(4)

 

Represents non-cash share based compensation expense from continuing operations for awards under the Company’s 2014 Omnibus Incentive Plan.

(5)

 

During 2019, (gain) loss on disposals of property, plant and equipment included for the fourth quarter of 2019 a loss of $0.3 million on the sale of a former Schaffner building in the industrial segment. During 2018, (gain) loss on disposals of property, plant and equipment included for the fourth quarter of 2018 a gain of $1.3 million on the sale of a building related to the closure of the engineered components segment’s U.K. facility.
