Manitex International, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2016 Results

BRIDGEVIEW, IL--(Marketwired - Aug 4, 2016) -  Manitex International, Inc. (NASDAQ: MNTX), a leading international provider of cranes and specialized material and container handling equipment, today announced Second Quarter 2016 results.

For the three months ended June 30, 2016, the Company reported net loss attributable to shareholders of Manitex International of $(1.8) million or $(0.11) per share, on net revenues of $96.3 million, compared to net income of $0.1 million or $0.01 per share on sales of $100.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015. Net income attributable to shareholders of Manitex International adjusted for transaction related and restructuring related items for the three months ended June 30, 2016 was $0.4 million or $0.02 per share, compared to $0.3 million or $0.02 per share for the three months ended June 30 2015. (The Glossary at the end of this press release contains further details regarding these adjustments).

Second Quarter 2016 Financial Highlights:

  • Net revenues of $96.3 million representing a year-over-year decrease of 4.2% from $100.5 million.
  • Gross margin of 17.5% compared to 18.8% in the second quarter of 2015. Adjusted gross margin* for the second quarter 2016 was 18.3% compared to 19.1% in second quarter of 2015.
  • Continued progress on strategic restructuring, with net costs of $2.1 million in the quarter, resulting from charges related the entry into our new North American credit facility and the consolidation of two manufacturing facilities.
  • Completed new North American $45 million revolving credit facility with lower interest rate of 4%.
  • Debt reduction of $7.1 million in the quarter, including term debt reduction of $3.0 million.
  • Cost reductions of $2.9 million achieved in the quarter and $5.1 million year to date equal to 92% of 2016 target.
  • Adjusted EBITDA* of $6.2 million or 6.4% of sales compared to adjusted EBITDA of $7.9 million or 7.8% of sales for the second quarter of 2015.
  • Consolidated backlog was $63.6 million at June 30, 2016, compared to $82.5 million at December 31, 2015.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, David Langevin commented, "As anticipated, the second quarter financial performance reflects continued softness in our markets although it also reflects well on our organization's focus on controlling what we can control and on the execution of our strategic objectives for the year. During the second quarter, much as we did in the first quarter, we achieved solid gross margins considering the reduced level of demand in our markets. And, while we made good progress during the quarter in reducing our debt and working capital levels we expect to accelerate our debt reduction throughout the end of this year. Sales of non-strategic businesses, when combined with other incremental working capital and operating cash flow, may enable us to exceed our previously stated target of $45 million in debt reduction for calendar year 2016." 

"We have seen improvement in ASV with a 110 basis point expansion in adjusted operating margin compared to the same quarter in 2015, along with the continued emphasis on reactivating their independent dealer network. Our PM knuckle boom crane product continues as our highest margin product with sales growth in Europe and North America offset by weakness in Latin America and the rest of the world. The straight mast market continues to run at historically low levels with a further shift in market demand to lower tonnage cranes. However, even with these headwinds we are seeing our market share for these type of products expand.

"We operate in cyclical businesses and while the timing of the recovery is impossible to predict we remain confident that the measures we continue to take to rationalize production, lower our costs, strengthen our balance sheet, and add to our leadership position in our served markets, will provide our shareholders an excellent foundation for future growth."

*(The Glossary at the end of this press release contains further details regarding As Adjusted items). The segment commentary below refers to "As adjusted" results.

Lifting Segment Results

  • Net revenues increased 2% or $1.3 million to $67.1 million for the quarter from $65.8 million in the year ago quarter. Sales of Manitex straight mast and industrial cranes were down year over year by approximately $0.9 million but with sales skewed to lower capacity units. PM knuckle boom crane sales were flat overall, with growth in North America, Italy and Western Europe offset by lower sales in South America and the Middle East. Sales of material handling equipment increased year over year with increased military and container handling equipment shipments being partially offset by lower volumes of other products. 
  • Operating income on an adjusted basis was $3.6 million or 5.3% of sales compared to $4.3 million or 6.6% of sales in the comparative period, with the shortfall almost entirely from lower gross margin as operating expenses were in line year over year. Gross profit for the three months ended June 30, 2016 was adversely affected by higher sales of lower capacity straight mast cranes and chassis which was partially offset by stronger margins on military sales.

ASV Segment Results

  • Net revenues of $27.3 million were $4.9 million lower than the $32.2 million in the second quarter of 2015, with the shortfall in revenues principally resulting from a $4.4 million reduction in demand for undercarriages and parts. Undercarriage sales in the second quarter of 2015 were elevated due to acceleration of orders by the customer to accommodate their production schedules. Sales of machines in total were down 12.9% but showed an improved mix, as sales of tracked machines were up year over year and comprised over 90% of machine sales in the quarter. ASV branded product sales increased 23% on a quarter over quarter basis.
  • Despite lower sales, gross margin improved year over year on both a dollar basis and as a percent of sales, resulting from the favorable mix of machine sales and lower manufacturing costs. Operating income of $2.1 million or 7.5% of sales compared to $2.1 million or 6.4% of sales, with the percentage improvement of 110 basis points over the year ago period driven by the improved gross margin and lower SG&A costs.

Equipment Distribution Segment Results

  • Net revenues decreased $0.4 million to $3.5 million for the quarter ended June 30 2016 compared to the quarter ending June 30 2015. Sales of new and remarketed equipment were lower than the comparative period, reflecting the continuing soft demand for equipment. This was partially offset by improved parts, service and rental revenues. Operating loss on an adjusted basis was ($0.7 million) in the quarter with reduced gross margin from lower equipment sales and higher operating expenses from costs related to the expansion of the rental fleet operations.

Other Profit / Loss Items

  • Interest expense related to write-off of debt issuance costs. Costs of $1.4 million charged in the current period were related to the expensing of deferred financing fees resulting from the change to a new long-term North American revolving credit facility.
  • Other income in the second quarter of 2016 was $0.7 million compared with zero in the second quarter of 2015 principally arising from the reassessment of a contingent liability valuation in the Lifting segment.
  • Income tax benefit of $1.1 million in the second quarter of 2016 compared to expense of $0.1 million in the year ago period. The tax benefit reflects the benefit of the full year expected tax including valuation allowance against US deferred tax assets during the quarter.

Andrew Rooke, Manitex International President and Chief Operating Officer, commented, "We made further progress during the quarter through a focus on restructuring our debt and strengthening the operations. We completed a new credit facility for North America at reduced interest cost and completed the consolidation of two facilities with excess capacity to improve our cost base. In addition, relating to our debt reduction initiative, we have made term debt repayments of $3.0 million in the quarter and $9.7 million year to date, totally eliminating our recourse Term Debt. We expect to continue making progress with debt reduction, and as expected, we saw a reduction in our working capital from March 31, 2016, with an improvement of $3.2 million in the quarter. We are seeing strong results from our cost reduction program despite lower levels of activity in our served markets, with expense reduction initiatives for the year-to-date resulting in 92% of the $5.5 million in savings we targeted for the full year. Such aggressive cost reduction has enabled us to achieve adjusted gross margin for the quarter of 18.3%, a good performance when considering the relatively high proportion of lower capacity crane sales in our current mix."

Management of Manitex International uses both GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures to establish internal budgets and targets and to evaluate the Company's financial performance against such budgets and targets. The amounts described below are unaudited, are reported in thousands of U.S. dollars, and are as of, or for the three month period ended June 30, 2016, unless otherwise indicated.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the following non-GAAP financial measures: "Adjusted EBITDA" (GAAP Operating Income adjusted for acquisition transaction related expense, restructuring and related expense, and Foreign exchange and other, and depreciation and amortization) and Adjusted Net Income (net income attributable to Manitex shareholders adjusted for acquisition transaction related and restructuring and related expense, net of tax, and change in net income attributable to noncontrolling interest). These non-GAAP terms, as defined by the Company, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Neither Adjusted Net Income nor Adjusted EBITDA are a measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles. Items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net earnings, operating income and other consolidated earnings data prepared in accordance with GAAP or as a measure of our profitability. A reconciliation of Operating Income to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income is provided below.

The Company's management believes that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of sales and Adjusted Net Income represent key operating metrics for its business. GAAP Operating Income adjusted for acquisition transaction related expense, restructuring and related expense, Foreign exchange and other, and depreciation and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA), and Adjusted Net Income, GAAP net income adjusted for acquisition transaction and restructuring related expense are a key indicator used by management to evaluate operating performance. While Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income are not intended to replace any presentation included in our consolidated financial statements under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and should not be considered an alternative to operating performance or an alternative to cash flow as a measure of liquidity, we believe these measures are useful to investors in assessing our operating results, capital expenditure and working capital requirements and the ongoing performance of its underlying businesses. These calculations may differ in method of calculation from similarly titled measures used by other companies. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income to GAAP financial measures for the three month periods ended June 30, 2015 and 2016 is included with this press release below and with the Company's related Form 8-K.

Transaction and restructuring related expense

After tax expense and per share amounts (Adjusted Net Income) are calculated using pre-tax amounts, applying a tax rate based on the effective tax rate to arrive at an after-tax amount. This number is divided by the weighted average diluted shares to provide the impact on earnings per share. The company assesses the impact of these items because when discussing earnings per share, the Company adjusts for items it believes are not reflective of operating activities in the periods.

Inventory turns are calculated by multiplying cost of goods sold for the referenced three month period by 4 and dividing that figure by inventory as at the referenced period.

Operating Working Capital is calculated using the Consolidated Balance Sheet amounts for Trade receivables (net of allowance) plus inventories, less Accounts payable. The Company considers excessive working capital as an inefficient use of resources, and seeks to minimize the level of investment without adversely impacting the ongoing operations of the business.
