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 net earnings of $13.2 million, or $0.73 per diluted share, on net sales of $205.9 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2015. The 2015 fourth quarter included a $2.0 million pre-tax restructuring charge, or $0.09 per diluted share, to reduce Tennant’s infrastructure costs. Excluding this special item, and a $0.04 per diluted share favorable tax true-up related to the 2015 third quarter long-lived asset impairment charge, adjusted 2015 fourth quarter net earnings totaled $14.0 million, or $0.78 per diluted share. On a “Constant Currency” basis (assuming no change in foreign exchange rates from the prior year), Tennant would have reported 2015 fourth quarter net sales of $216.7 million and adjusted net earnings per diluted share of $0.93, up 0.2 percent and equal to, respectively, compared to the prior year quarter. (See the Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Table.) In the 2014 fourth quarter, Tennant reported net earnings of $17.5 million, or $0.93 per diluted share, on record net sales of $216.3 million.

“Like other industrial companies, we saw a more sluggish business environment in the 2015 fourth quarter,” said Chris Killingstad, Tennant Company's president and chief executive officer. “Despite the adverse macroeconomic conditions, we had organic sales gains in EMEA for the first time in 2015, as well as solid U.S. sales through distribution and to strategic accounts.”

Commenting on the special item in the fourth quarter, Killingstad stated: “We recorded a restructuring charge in the fourth quarter as part of our continuing effort to reduce the company’s infrastructure costs. This action was primarily related to the January 2016 sale of our Green Machines™ outdoor city cleaning line. We remain focused on investing in our strongest growth opportunities, which are in our industrial and commercial cleaning products and technologies. We believe we are now well positioned to operate more efficiently in an uncertain economic environment.”

Tennant is committed to pursuing its growth strategy. The company is confident that it is on the right path and plans to reach its $1 billion organic sales goal through a strong new product and technology pipeline, 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 Tennant’s worldwide market coverage and customer base.

Fourth Quarter Operating Review
The company's 2015 fourth quarter consolidated net sales of $205.9 million were down 4.8 percent versus the prior year quarter. Unfavorable foreign currency exchange reduced consolidated net sales by approximately 5.0 percent. Organic net sales, which exclude the impact of foreign currency exchange (and acquisitions and divestitures when applicable), increased approximately 0.2 percent.

Contributing to 2015 fourth quarter results were solid sales through distribution and to strategic accounts, particularly in North America and EMEA. Sales of scrubbers equipped with ec-H2O™ technology rose 3.8 percent in the fourth quarter, setting a record quarter for ec-H2O technology sales.

Geographically, sales were down 2.5 percent in Tennant’s largest region, the Americas. Unfavorable foreign currency exchange reduced sales by approximately 3.0 percent. Organic sales increased approximately 0.5 percent, despite lapping the very robust Americas organic sales growth of approximately 16.0 percent in the prior year quarter. Sales in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) decreased 9.4 percent, but grew approximately 1.1 percent organically, excluding an unfavorable foreign currency exchange impact of about 10.5 percent. Sales in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region were down 11.6 percent, or down approximately 3.6 percent organically, excluding an unfavorable foreign currency exchange impact of about 8.0 percent.

Tennant's gross margin in the 2015 fourth quarter was 42.4 percent versus 43.0 percent in the prior year quarter. Impacting gross margin was a larger percentage of sales through distribution, as that channel tends to have lower gross margins, and the unfavorable foreign currency exchange impact. On a “Constant Currency” basis, fourth quarter gross margin would have been 43.3 percent.

Research and development (R&D) expense for the 2015 fourth quarter totaled $8.1 million, or 3.9 percent of sales, compared to $7.5 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 fourth quarter totaled $61.4 million, or 29.8 percent of sales, and $59.5 million, or 28.9 percent of sales as adjusted to exclude the $2.0 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 and fourth quarter restructurings, are anticipated to improve S&A leverage in future quarters. S&A in the 2014 fourth quarter was $63.0 million, or 29.1 percent of sales.

Tennant's 2015 fourth quarter operating profit was $17.8 million, or 8.6 percent of sales, and $19.7 million, or 9.6 percent of sales as adjusted, versus an operating profit of $22.6 million, or 10.5 percent of sales, in the year ago quarter. Due to the strength of the U.S. dollar in the 2015 fourth quarter, foreign currency exchange rates reduced operating profit by approximately $3.6 million. Tennant’s operating profit margin would have been 10.8 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
“We have a strong innovation engine to fuel our revenue growth,” said Killingstad. “We are excited about Tennant’s new products and technologies, such as IRIS® and our next generation ec-H2O NanoClean™. Building on our recent new product additions, we look forward to introducing at least 13 new products in 2016, including several significant industrial machine launches.”

In the 2015 fourth quarter, 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 available on many of Tennant’s commercial and industrial cleaning machines.

The company also recently launched its next generation of sustainable cleaning technology, ec-H2O NanoClean, on the T300 Walk-Behind Scrubber and T7 Micro Rider Scrubber. The ec-H2O NanoClean technology is now available on the company’s applicable 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.

Tennant’s Orbio® os3 also is receiving positive responses from customers across a variety of industries. The Orbio os3 delivers on-site generation of an effective multi-surface cleaner and an anti- microbial solution that meets EPA standards for disinfection and sanitization.

Tennant continues to execute against the strongest new product pipeline in its history. In 2015, Tennant introduced 36 new products, including product variants, on top of 55 new products launched from 2012 to 2014. The company is committed to being an industry innovation leader and raising the standard for sustainable cleaning around the world.

2015 Full Year Results
For the 2015 full year, Tennant reported consolidated net sales of $811.8 million compared to a record $822.0 million in 2014. Tennant’s 2015 net sales were down 1.2 percent versus the prior year, or up 4.3 percent organically, excluding unfavorable foreign currency exchange of approximately 5.5 percent.

For 2015, Tennant reported net earnings of $32.1 million, or $1.74 per diluted share. Excluding special items, the company’s 2015 adjusted full year net earnings were $46.0 million, or $2.49 per diluted share. On a “Constant Currency” basis (assuming no change in foreign exchange rates from the prior year), Tennant would have reported 2015 full year record net sales of $857.1 million and adjusted net earnings of $55.4 million, or $3.00 per diluted share, up 11.1 percent versus the prior year. In 2014, Tennant reported net earnings of $50.7 million, or $2.70 per diluted share.

Tennant’s gross margin for the 2015 full year was 43.0 percent, in line with the company’s target gross margin of 43 percent and up slightly compared to gross margin in 2014 of 42.9 percent, despite the impact from foreign currency headwinds.

R&D expense in 2015 was $32.4 million, or 4.0 percent of sales, versus $29.4 million, or 3.6 percent of sales, in the previous year. S&A expense in 2015 totaled $252.3 million, or 31.1 percent of sales, and $248.5 million, or 30.6 percent of sales as adjusted to exclude the $3.7 million pre-tax restructuring charge, compared to $250.9 million, or 30.5 percent of sales, in 2014.

Operating profit in 2015 was $53.2 million, or 6.6 percent of sales, and $68.1 million, or 8.4 percent of sales as adjusted, versus $72.1 million, or 8.8 percent of sales, in 2014.

Tennant continued to have a strong balance sheet and generated $45.2 million in cash from operations in 2015. Cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2015, totaled $51.3 million versus $93.0 million in the prior year, and debt decreased to $24.7 million, down from $28.1 million at the end of 2014. During 2015, Tennant paid a total of $14.5 million in cash dividends to shareholders and increased its level of share repurchases to 764,046 shares of common stock at a cost of $46.0 million. During 2014, Tennant repurchased 225,034 shares of common stock at a cost of $14.1 million.

Business Outlook
Tennant Company estimates 2016 full year net sales in the range of $795 million to $825 million, down 2.1 percent to up 1.6 percent, or approximately zero percent to up 4 percent organically, assuming an unfavorable foreign currency exchange impact on sales in the range of 1 percent to 2 percent and a sales decline from the divestiture of approximately 1 percent. The company expects 2016 full year earnings in the range of $2.25 to $2.55 per diluted share. Foreign currency exchange headwinds in 2016 are estimated to negatively impact operating profit in the range of $3 million to $6 million, or a negative impact of approximately $0.10 to $0.20 per diluted share. On a “Constant Currency” basis (assuming no change in foreign exchange rates from the prior year), 2016 full year earnings are anticipated to be in the range of $2.35 to $2.75 per share. The estimated slightly higher effective tax rate in 2016 is also anticipated to negatively impact earnings per share by approximately $0.05. The company expects its 2016 financial results to be stronger in the second half of the year. For the 2015 full year, adjusted diluted earnings per share totaled $2.49 on net sales of $811.8 million. (See the Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Table.)

Tennant’s 2016 annual financial outlook includes the following assumptions:

  • Slower economic growth in North America, modest improvement in Europe and growth in emerging markets;
  • Continued negative foreign currency impact on sales for the full year in the range of an unfavorable 1 percent to 2 percent, with a $3 million to $6 million negative effect on operating profit;
  • Decline in sales of approximately 1 percent from the sale of the Green Machines™ outdoor city cleaning line, and an immaterial impact on earnings;
  • 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 $30 million; and
  • An effective tax rate of approximately 31 percent.

Commented Killingstad: “While we anticipate foreign currency and global economic volatility to remain challenging in the coming quarters, we believe that Tennant is competitively advantaged and positioned to perform efficiently. We remain committed to reaching our goals of $1 billion in organic sales and a 12 percent operating profit margin.”
