Manitex International, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2016 Results

BRIDGEVIEW, IL--(Marketwired - Nov 9, 2016) - Manitex International, Inc. (NASDAQ: MNTX), a leading international provider of cranes and container handling equipment, today announced Third Quarter 2016 results.

For the three months ended September 30, 2016, the Company reported net loss from continuing operations attributable to shareholders of Manitex International of $(5.9) million or $(0.36) per share, on net revenues of $74.1 million, compared to net loss from continuing operations attributable to shareholders of Manitex International of $(0.6) million or $(0.04) per share on sales of $84.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015.

Net income from continuing operations attributable to shareholders of Manitex International adjusted for restructuring related items for the three months ended September 30, 2016 was $0.8 million or $0.05 per share, compared to an adjusted net loss of $(0.6) million or $(0.04) per share for the three months ended September 30 2015. (The Glossary at the end of this press release contains further details regarding these adjustments).

Third Quarter 2016 Financial Highlights for Continuing Operations:

  • Net revenues of $74.1 million representing a year-over-year decrease of 12.3% from $84.5 million.
  • Adjusted net income of $0.8 million or $0.05 per share compared to adjusted net loss of $(0.6) million or $(0.04) for third quarter 2015.
  • Reduction in North American recourse debt of $15.8 million in the quarter and total debt reduction excluding working capital of $21.6 million for the year to date.
  • Cost reductions of $2.0 million achieved in the quarter and $7.0 million year to date equal to 128% of 2016 target.
  • Gross margin of 15.7% compared to 18.7% in the third quarter of 2015. Adjusted gross margin* for the third quarter 2016 was 16.6% compared to 18.7%.
  • Adjusted EBITDA* of $2.8 million or 3.8% of sales compared to adjusted EBITDA of $5.2 million or 6.2% of sales for the third quarter of 2015.
  • Consolidated backlog was $46.3 million at September 30, 2016, compared to $75.5 million at December 31, 2015 and $54.2 million at June 30, 2016
  • Strategic actions included the disposal of Liftking subsidiary for net proceeds of $13.4 million and cost reduction initiatives that included plant restructuring and headcount reductions with an estimated cost of $1 million.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, David Langevin commented, "Despite facing extremely challenging conditions in the bulk of our markets, we are managing our business portfolio prudently and taking all the necessary actions to position Manitex for future growth, with our variable cost operational model continuing to provide the ability for us to flex and generate cash. On a non-GAAP basis, we are pleased to say that we've turned a profit for the quarter compared to a loss in last year's period with the bulk of our GAAP loss coming from restructuring and asset impairment charges. As planned and as we've communicated, we have implemented cost reductions that are once again ahead of plan for the year, we have brought down our debt, rationalized our production schedules to match our order rate, and we've divested one of our non-core, product lines. We've worked hard to improve our competitive position in the market place and we believe we have seen market share gains in our core businesses. The global market for new cranes and equipment, as has widely been reported, remains at historically low levels in terms of unit volumes and sales, so as this persists, we will continue with our necessary responses, by implementing working capital reductions, business optimization and debt reductions, with possible non-strategic subsidiary sales to come and working hard to stimulate sales as the economy will allow. Although our order rate remains at depressed levels, there are signs that some level of recovery may be ahead as our quote rate has progressively increased over the last few months.

"We continue to concentrate our resources on expanding the distribution of PM in North America and reactivating the ASV independent dealer network, which now stands at 126 dealers, from zero just 18 months ago, across the continent. While ASV revenues were slightly off, the group's operating margins were more than 2 percentage points ahead of where they were in last year's same quarter, and we believe that we'll continue to see a benefit from margin improvements in this group, which remains a source of increasing value within the Manitex portfolio. Business in our main straight mast crane market, remains extremely soft, but fortunately, the knuckle crane market which we entered with the purchase of PM Group in early 2015, has not suffered to the same degree and as a result we are seeing some positive offset from PM, particularly in Europe. Also as planned, subsequent to the end of the quarter, we announced the launch of a Manitex-branded knuckle boom product line, which is additionally being built here in our Georgetown, TX facility, establishing our presence as the only domestic assembler of a full line of knuckle boom cranes, parts, and service, with the PL74 model now being shipped to a number of North American dealers."

*(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 decreased 12.1% or $6.6 million to $48.1 million for the quarter from $54.8 million in the year ago quarter. A sales decline of approximately $8.2 million was offset by increased sales of container handling equipment of approximately $1.6 million. Manitex straight mast and industrial cranes were down year over year and also reflected a higher proportion of lower capacity units. PM knuckle boom crane sales were also lower than the comparable period with growth in North America, Italy and Western Europe offset by lower sales in East Europe and the Middle East.
  • Operating income on an adjusted basis was $0.1 million or 0.1% of sales compared to $3.1 million or 5.6% of sales in the comparative period, with the shortfall from lower gross margin due to lower volume and an adverse sales mix. Although lower than the comparable period, reduced operating expenses were not sufficient to offset the loss of gross margin. Gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2016 was adversely affected by sales of lower capacity straight mast cranes and chassis.

ASV Segment Results

  • Net revenues of $23.0 million were a decrease of approximately $3.9 million or 14.4% from net sales of $26.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015. Machine sales were lower by 19.8% principally from reduced volume. Sales of machines through the ASV managed distribution increased to 80%, compared to 48% in the prior year period and 61% in the three months ended June 30, 2016. Parts sales decreased 18% from the prior year period, with two thirds of this reduction coming from an OEM customer.
  • Operating income for the third quarter 2016 was $1.7 million or 7.4% of sales compared to $1.4 million and 5.1% of sales in the comparable period. The improvement in operating income was generated by an increase in gross profit and reduced SG&A expense. The improvement in gross profit was generated from a favorable mix of higher capacity machine sales, improved net pricing from increased sales into the ASV distribution channel, and the benefit of reduced costs of sales from cost reduction and efficiency actions. Reduced SG&A expense was achieved from lower general and administrative costs and lower selling expense due to volume.

Equipment Distribution Segment Results

  • Net revenues increased $0.9 million to $3.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 compared to $3.0 million for the quarter ending September 30 2015. Sales of equipment were $1.0 million higher than the comparative period but at very aggressive pricing reflecting the current market environment. Rentals improved $0.1 million over the comparative period but this was offset by reduced parts sales. Operating loss on an adjusted basis was ($0.1 million) in the quarter compared to an adjusted operating loss of $(0.2) million in the year ago period. Reduced operating expenses was the principal factor for the improvement.

Other Profit / Loss Items

  • Income tax benefit of $3.8 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to $0.2 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 on our 2016 stated goals during the quarter, in particular with a reduction in North American recourse debt by $15.8 million through proceeds from the Liftking sale and working capital reductions, and on a consolidated basis our working capital has reduced $13.2 million since December 31, 2015. As we had previously announced as a result of the Liftking sale, in the third quarter results we recorded non-cash impairment charges for our Lift Ventures investment and intangible assets and goodwill of $5.7 million and $6.6 million respectively. We are seeing strong results from our cost reduction program despite the lower levels of activity in our served markets, with expense reduction initiatives for the year-to-date at 128% of the $5.5 million in savings we targeted for the full year. Additionally, the expansion of the independent ASV dealer network continues, with dealers now in thirty two US states and two Canadian provinces and a total of 126 locations at the end of the quarter. This network is now approaching a critical mass from which further expansion can be launched."

Supplemental Information

In an effort to provide investors with additional information regarding the Company's results, Manitex International refers to various non-GAAP (U.S. generally accepted accounting principles) financial measures which management believes provides useful information to investors. These non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures being disclosed by other companies. In addition, the Company believes that non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not in lieu of, GAAP financial measures. Manitex International believes that this information is useful to understanding its operating results and the ongoing performance of its underlying businesses. 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 September 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 September 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.
