Oct. 27, 2015

Net sales increased 1.1 percent, or grew 7.6 percent organically;
Gross margin rose to 43.3 percent in third quarter;
Third quarter adjusted diluted EPS up 7.9 percent to $0.68;

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Tennant Company (NYSE:TNC), a world leader in designing, manufacturing and marketing of solutions that help create a cleaner, safer, healthier world, today reported a net loss of $1.0 million, or a loss of $0.05 per diluted share, on net sales of $204.8 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2015. The 2015 third quarter included two special items that reduced net earnings by a total of $0.73 per diluted share: a non-cash long-lived asset impairment charge of $11.5 million, or $0.64 per diluted share, as a result of the classification of the company’s Green MachinesTM assets as held for sale; and a related restructuring charge of $1.6 million, or $0.09 per diluted share. Excluding these special items, adjusted 2015 third quarter net earnings totaled $12.1 million, or $0.68 per diluted share. On a “Constant Currency” basis (assuming no change in foreign exchange rates from the prior year), Tennant would have reported 2015 third quarter net sales of $217.9 million and adjusted net earnings per diluted share of $0.84, which would have been an increase of 33.3 percent over the prior year quarter. (See the Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Table.) In the 2014 third quarter, Tennant reported net earnings of $11.8 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, on net sales of $202.6 million.

“We had record revenues for a third quarter, again led by robust sales to strategic accounts in North America and global sales of new products,” said Chris Killingstad, Tennant Company's president and chief executive officer. “We remain pleased with our strong performance in Tennant’s largest market of North America, and our growth in the Asia Pacific region, both of which fueled organic sales gains.”

Commenting on the special items in the third quarter, Killingstad stated: “We are focused on investing in the strongest growth opportunities, and those are in our core industrial and commercial cleaning solutions, including Orbio® technologies. After careful assessment, we have determined that our Green Machines outdoor city cleaning line does not sufficiently complement our core business, and therefore, we are exploring strategic alternatives for the Green Machines brand and related assets which constitute approximately 2 percent of our total sales. There can be no assurance that a transaction will take place; however, it is our intention to identify potential buyers who will drive further investment and growth in Green Machines products and service. Given that decision, we also recorded a restructuring charge in the third quarter, primarily in Europe, to reduce our infrastructure costs.”

Tennant remains committed to its $1 billion strategic growth goal through a strong new product pipeline in both the core business and in the Orbio Technologies Group, continued gains in emerging markets, a return to growth in Europe, a focus on strategic accounts and an enhanced go-to-market strategy designed to significantly expand the company’s worldwide market coverage and customer base.

Third Quarter Operating Review
The company's 2015 third quarter consolidated net sales of $204.8 million rose 1.1 percent compared to the prior year quarter. Unfavorable foreign currency exchange reduced consolidated net sales by approximately 6.5 percent. Organic net sales, which exclude the impact of foreign currency exchange (and acquisitions when applicable), increased approximately 7.6 percent.

In addition to higher sales to strategic accounts in North America in the 2015 third quarter, Tennant saw continued favorable global demand for new products, especially the T12 and T17 rider scrubbers and the T300 Walk-Behind Scrubber for the industrial and commercial markets, respectively. Sales of scrubbers equipped with the company’s ec-H2O™ technology grew approximately 8 percent compared to the prior year period, surpassing the $40 million mark in the third quarter.

Geographically, sales set a third quarter record in Tennant’s largest region, the Americas, up 4.8 percent, or approximately 8.3 percent organically, excluding an unfavorable foreign currency exchange impact of about 3.5 percent. Sales in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) were down 15.0 percent, or decreased approximately 2.0 percent organically, excluding an unfavorable foreign currency exchange impact of about 13.0 percent. Organic sales rose in Western Europe, but those gains were more than offset by sales declines in Russia and lower sales of outdoor equipment. Sales in the Asia Pacific region (APAC) increased 7.3 percent, and grew approximately 21.3 percent organically, excluding an unfavorable foreign currency exchange impact of about 14.0 percent. Tennant saw organic sales growth in all APAC countries, with particular strength in Australia and China.

Tennant's gross margin in the 2015 third quarter was 43.3 percent versus 43.0 percent in the prior year quarter. Despite the impact from prevailing foreign currency headwinds, gross margin improved 30 basis points due to improved operating efficiencies in both the direct service organization and manufacturing operations.

Research and development (R&D) expense for the 2015 third quarter totaled $8.2 million, or 4.0 percent of sales, compared to $6.8 million, or 3.4 percent of sales, in the same quarter last year. The company continued to invest in developing innovative new products for its traditional core business, as well as in its Orbio Technologies Group, which is focused on advancing a suite of chemical free and other sustainable cleaning technologies.

Selling and administrative (S&A) expense in the 2015 third quarter totaled $64.7 million, or 31.6 percent of sales, and $62.9 million, or 30.7 percent of sales as adjusted to exclude the $1.8 million pre-tax restructuring charge. Tennant continued to invest in its sales growth and efficiency initiatives which, combined with the benefits from the 2015 third quarter restructuring, are anticipated to improve S&A leverage in future quarters. S&A in the 2014 third quarter was $63.2 million, or 31.2 percent of sales.

Tennant's 2015 third quarter operating profit was $4.6 million, or 2.2 percent of sales, and $17.5 million, or 8.6 percent of sales as adjusted, versus an operating profit of $17.1 million, or 8.4 percent of sales, in the year ago quarter. Due to the strength of the U.S. dollar in the 2015 third quarter, foreign currency exchange rates reduced operating profit by approximately $4.2 million. Tennant’s operating profit margin would have been 10.0 percent on an adjusted and “Constant Currency” basis (excluding the impact of unfavorable foreign currency exchange). Tennant remains committed to the goal of a 12 percent or above operating profit margin.

New Product and Technology Pipeline
Tennant Company continues to execute against the strongest new product pipeline in its history. Year to date in 2015, Tennant has introduced 33 new products and product variants, on top of 55 new products launched from 2012 to 2014.

Just after the 2015 third quarter end, Tennant introduced the IRIS® Asset Manager, an intelligent command center that helps customers drive operational consistency and reduce the cost to clean. Onboard technology collects machine usage, ec-H2O usage and machine location information. This data is available online 24/7 through an easy-to-use portal. The IRIS Asset Manager is currently available on 19 Tennant commercial and industrial cleaning machines in nine countries around the world.

Commented Killingstad: “Innovation fuels our revenue growth. We are excited about Tennant’s new core equipment products and technologies, such as IRIS, and our ongoing progress with sustainable cleaning solutions, including the next generation ec-H2O NanoClean™ as well as the Orbio® os3 from the Orbio Technologies Group.”

Tennant initially launched its next generation of sustainable cleaning technology, ec-H2O NanoClean, on its new T300 Walk-Behind Scrubber and now offers this technology on its T7 Micro Rider Scrubber as well. The new ec-H2O NanoClean technology will soon be available on the company’s full line of commercial scrubbers. The name NanoClean refers to the creation of nano-scale bubbles that are an important part of the cleaning mechanism. Like the original ec-H2O, the next generation ec-H2O NanoClean technology electrically converts water into an innovative solution that offers the same benefits as the original, but cleans better, cleans more soils, and is effective in more applications.

In addition, the new Orbio os3, which delivers on-site generation of an effective multi-surface cleaner and an anti-microbial solution that meets EPA standards for disinfection and sanitization, continues to receive positive responses from customers across a variety of industries.

Tennant is committed to being an industry innovation leader and raising the standard for sustainable cleaning around the world.

2015 Nine Month Results
For the first ninth months ended September 30, 2015, Tennant’s net earnings totaled $18.9 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, on net sales of $606.0 million. Consolidated net sales were essentially flat compared to the prior year period. Unfavorable foreign currency exchange reduced consolidated net sales by approximately 6.0 percent. Organic net sales, which exclude the impact of foreign currency exchange (and acquisitions when applicable) increased approximately 6.0 percent. Excluding special items, the 2015 nine month adjusted net earnings totaled $32.0 million, or $1.71 per diluted share. (See the Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Table.) In the prior year first nine months, Tennant reported net earnings of $33.1 million, or $1.77 per diluted share, on net sales of $605.7 million.

Year-to-date 2015 gross margin was 43.2 percent up from 42.8 percent in the prior year period. R&D expense in the 2015 first nine months was $24.3 million, or 4.0 percent of sales, compared to $22.0 million, or 3.6 percent of sales, in the 2014 first nine months. S&A expense in the 2015 first nine months was $190.8 million, or 31.5 percent of sales, and $189.1 million or 31.2 percent of sales as adjusted to exclude the $1.8 million pre-tax restructuring charge, versus $187.9 million, or 31.0 percent of sales, in the year ago period.

Operating profit in the 2015 first nine months was $35.4 million, or 5.8 percent of sales, and $48.4 million and 8.0 percent of sales as adjusted, compared to $49.5 million, or 8.2 percent of sales, in the prior year first nine months. Due to the strength of the U.S. dollar in the 2015 first nine months, foreign currency exchange reduced operating profit by approximately $9.5 million.

Tennant generated $30.9 million in cash from operations in the 2015 first nine months. Cash on the balance sheet at September 30, 2015, totaled $56.8 million, versus $79.8 million a year ago. The company's total debt was $24.6 million, down from $28.2 million at the end of the prior year period. During the first nine months of 2015, Tennant has paid a total of $11.0 million in cash dividends to shareholders and repurchased 648,479 shares at a cost of $39.1 million.

Business Outlook
Based on its year-to-date results, expectations for the remainder of the year and a greater-than- anticipated unfavorable foreign currency impact, Tennant Company now estimates 2015 full year net sales in the range of $815 million to $825 million, down 0.8 percent to up 0.4 percent, and up approximately 4 percent to 6 percent organically, assuming an unfavorable foreign currency exchange impact on sales in the range of 5 percent to 6 percent. Previously, Tennant anticipated 2015 full year net sales in the range of $825 million to $845 million.

The company is narrowing its 2015 full year earnings guidance to a range of $2.45 to $2.65 per diluted share, as adjusted. Previously, Tennant anticipated 2015 full year earnings in the range of $2.40 to $2.70 per diluted share. Foreign currency exchange headwinds in 2015 are now estimated to negatively impact operating profit in the range of $12 million to $14 million, or approximately $0.44 to $0.52 per diluted share. The estimated higher effective tax rate in 2015 is anticipated to negatively impact earnings by approximately $0.14 per diluted share. For the 2014 full year, diluted earnings per share totaled $2.70 on net sales of $822 million.

Tennant’s 2015 annual financial outlook includes the following assumptions:

  • Economic strength in North America and modest improvement in Europe, and growth in emerging markets;
  • Increased foreign currency impact on sales for the full year in the range of an unfavorable 5 percent to 6 percent, with a $12 million to $14 million negative effect on operating profit;
  • Gross margin performance of approximately 43 percent;
  • R&D expense of approximately 4 percent of sales, as the company continues to invest in its core products and in water-based cleaning technologies;
  • Capital expenditures in the range of $25 million to $28 million; and
  • An effective tax rate of approximately 31 percent, including the anticipated enactment of the 2015 Federal R&D tax credit.

Commented Killingstad: “We are continuing to invest in our growth agenda, and we remain on track to deliver gains in organic sales and adjusted operating profit margin in 2015. We anticipate foreign currency headwinds to remain challenging through the remainder of the year. We are focused on creating value through new product introductions, and expanding our worldwide sales and marketing initiatives to increase Tennant’s global market share, while concurrently running a more efficient business to raise productivity.”
