Tennant Company Reports 2016 Third Quarter Results

Oct. 25, 2016

Company posts net sales of $200.1 million;

Third quarter net earnings totaled $0.64 per diluted share;

Company narrows 2016 full year sales and EPS guidance ranges

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 $11.5 million, or $0.64 per diluted share, on net sales of $200.1 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016. On a “Constant Currency” basis (assuming no change in foreign exchange rates from the prior year), Tennant would have reported 2016 third quarter net earnings of $0.62 per diluted share. In the 2015 third quarter, Tennant reported a net loss of $1.0 million, or a loss of $0.05 per diluted share, on net sales of $204.8 million. 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 of $11.5 million, or $0.64 per diluted share, and a 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. (See the Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Table.)

Commented Chris Killingstad, Tennant Company's president and chief executive officer: “Despite the slow growth environment for industrial manufacturers that led to lower sales in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions, our Americas region posted record revenues for a third quarter. We remain competitively well positioned and excited about our growth prospects. We expect to return to organic sales growth in the 2016 fourth quarter.”

Tennant continues to expect positive performance from its growth strategy. It is staying the course strategically with an unwavering focus on ensuring a robust new product and technology pipeline, developing an e-Commerce platform, and extending Tennant’s worldwide market coverage and customer base. Concurrently, the company remains focused on controlling costs.

During the 2016 third quarter, Tennant Company expanded its commercial floor coatings business with the acquisition of the Florock® brand in Chicago. Tennant also acquired the assets of Dofesa Barrido Mecanizado, a long-time distributor based in central Mexico, to enhance Tennant’s sales and service capabilities in this growing region.

Third Quarter Operating Review

The company's 2016 third quarter consolidated net sales of $200.1 million was down 2.3 percent compared to the prior year quarter. The impact of foreign currency exchange on sales was neutral in the quarter, and the net impact of the Florock acquisition and the 2016 Green Machines™ divestiture decreased consolidated net sales by 0.1 percent. As a result, organic net sales, which exclude the impact of foreign currency exchange, acquisitions and divestitures, decreased 2.2 percent.

Geographically, in its Americas region, Tennant posted record sales for a third quarter, as noted above. Sales rose 2.2 percent in the Americas, or grew 1.2 percent organically, excluding the impact of the Florock acquisition, led by higher sales to strategic accounts, demand for new products in North America and strong sales in Latin America. Sales in the 2016 third quarter were negatively impacted by productivity challenges in North America that resulted in a larger-than-normal order backlog at quarter end. Sales in EMEA decreased 15.1 percent and decreased approximately 7.6 percent organically, excluding the impact of the Green Machines divestiture of 5.0 percent and an unfavorable foreign currency exchange impact of about 2.5 percent. Positive organic sales growth through distribution in Western Europe was more than offset by organic sales declines elsewhere, particularly the U.K. where Brexit’s negative impact on the economy, and the related devaluation of the British Pound, was larger than anticipated. Sales in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region declined 13.1 percent versus strong year ago sales and decreased approximately 15.1 percent organically, excluding a favorable foreign currency exchange impact of about 2.0 percent. In the prior year third quarter, sales in the APAC region increased 7.3 percent, and grew approximately 21.3 percent organically, excluding an unfavorable foreign currency exchange impact of about 14.0 percent.

Tennant's gross margin in the 2016 third quarter was 42.6 percent compared to 43.3 percent in the prior year quarter. The 70 basis point decline was due primarily to productivity challenges in North America, as previously mentioned. The company continues to anticipate that gross margin for the 2016 full year will be in its target range of 43 percent to 44 percent.

Research and development (R&D) expense for the 2016 third quarter totaled $8.4 million, or 4.2 percent of sales, versus $8.2 million, or 4.0 percent of sales, a year ago. The company continued to invest in developing a robust pipeline of innovative new products and technologies.

Selling and administrative (S&A) expense in the 2016 third quarter decreased to $60.6 million, or 30.3 percent of sales, from $64.7 million, or 31.6 percent of sales, and $62.9 million, or 30.7 percent as adjusted, in the 2015 third quarter. Tennant continued to control spending while investing in its high-priority growth initiatives.

Tennant's 2016 third quarter operating profit was $16.3 million, or 8.1 percent of sales, versus an operating profit of $4.6 million, or 2.2 percent of sales, and $17.5 million, or 8.6 percent of sales as adjusted, in the year ago quarter. Tennant’s 2016 third quarter operating profit margin would have been 7.9 percent on a “Constant Currency” basis (excluding the impact of favorable foreign currency exchange).

New Product and Technology Pipeline

Tennant Company continues to execute against the strongest new product pipeline in its history. In 2016, the company plans to introduce 10 new products, including large industrial cleaning machines.

Among Tennant’s key new product launches in 2016:

  • The next generation of three large, high-performance cleaning machines for the industrial market: the M20 and M30 Integrated Sweeper-Scrubbers, and the T20 Heavy-Duty Industrial Rider Scrubber. These new models incorporate Tennant’s latest technologies, including the Pro-Panel™ intuitive touch-screen.
  • The M17 Battery-Powered Sweeper-Scrubber, Tennant’s largest battery-powered sweeper-scrubber. This versatile machine allows operators to choose between dry sweeping, scrubbing, or simultaneously sweeping and scrubbing. The fume-free sweeper-scrubber is engineered to be easy to operate and maintain, while providing big productivity gains through industry leading innovations.

Commented Killingstad: “Our new products have been well received by customers, with the M17 and our IRIS® telemetry technology, in particular, exceeding our expectations. We remain committed to developing new products and technologies that fuel our revenue growth. We also aim to create new growth avenues, through our advanced product development efforts, that go beyond improving cleaning performance. We are looking at our customers’ needs holistically to address a broader array of customer needs, such as managing labor costs, productivity and machine maintenance information. We plan to expand our business through telemetry – with new and enhanced offerings for our IRIS Asset Manager – as well as robotics, battery technology and water recycling. We are excited about the impact of these innovations for Tennant’s future.”

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

2016 First Nine Months Results

For the first ninth months ended September 30, 2016, Tennant’s net earnings totaled $31.2 million, or $1.74 per diluted share, on net sales of $596.8 million, compared to prior year net earnings of $18.9 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, on net sales of $605.9 million. On a “Constant Currency” basis, Tennant’s 2016 year-to-date net earnings totaled $1.80 per diluted share. Unfavorable foreign currency exchange reduced consolidated net sales by approximately 1.0 percent, and the net impact of the Florock acquisition and the Green Machines divestiture decreased consolidated net sales by 0.6 percent. Organic net sales, which exclude the impact of foreign currency exchange, acquisitions and divestitures, increased approximately 0.1 percent.

Year-to-date 2016 gross margin was 43.2 percent and was equal to the prior year period. R&D expense in the 2016 first nine months was $24.7 million, or 4.1 percent of sales, compared to $24.3 million, or 4.0 percent of sales, in the 2015 first nine months. S&A expense in the 2016 first nine months was $187.3 million, or 31.4 percent of sales, versus $190.8 million, or 31.5 percent of sales, and $189.1 million, or 31.2 percent of sales as adjusted, in the year ago period.

Operating profit in the 2016 first nine months was $45.9 million, or 7.7 percent of sales, compared to $35.4 million, or 5.8 percent of sales, and $48.4 million or 8.0 percent of sales as adjusted, in the prior year first nine months.

Tennant generated $33.3 million in cash from operations in the first nine months versus $30.9 million in the year earlier period. Cash on the balance sheet at September 30, 2016, totaled $42.3 million, versus $56.8 million a year ago. The company's total debt was $36.2 million compared to $24.6 million at the end of the prior year period. Reflecting Tennant’s ongoing commitment to enhancing shareholder return, the company paid cash dividends to shareholders of $10.6 million in the 2016 first nine months and repurchased 246,474 shares of common stock at a cost of $12.8 million.

2016 Business Outlook

Killingstad stated: “For the remainder of 2016, we anticipate continued global economic uncertainty. We are narrowing our full year revenue and earnings guidance ranges, based on the company’s performance to date and our expectations for a return to organic sales growth in the 2016 fourth quarter. We remain committed to investing for growth, with disciplined spending.”

Tennant Company now anticipates 2016 net sales in the range of $805 million to $815 million, down 0.8 percent to up 0.4 percent, or approximately up 0.2 percent to up 1.4 percent organically, excluding an unfavorable foreign currency exchange impact, a sales decline from the Green Machines divestiture and a sales increase from the Florock acquisition. The company expects 2016 full year earnings in the range of $2.40 to $2.60 per diluted share. Previously, Tennant estimated 2016 full year net sales in the range of $800 million to $820 million and earnings in the range of $2.35 to $2.60 per diluted share.

Foreign currency exchange headwinds in 2016 are estimated to negatively impact operating profit in the range of $2 million to $3 million, or a negative impact of approximately $0.08 to $0.12 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 $2.52 to $2.68 per diluted share. The estimated slightly higher effective tax rate in 2016 is also anticipated to negatively impact earnings per share by approximately $0.05. For the 2015 full year, adjusted diluted earnings per share totaled $2.49. (See the Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Table.)

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

  • Continued slow economic growth in North America, modest improvement in Europe and growth in emerging markets;
  • Unfavorable foreign currency impact on sales for the full year of approximately 1 percent, with a $2 million to $3 million negative effect on operating profit;
  • Decline in sales of approximately 1 percent from the Green Machines divestiture, and an immaterial impact on earnings;
  • Increase in sales of approximately 1 percent from the Florock acquisition, and an immaterial impact on earnings;
  • Gross margin performance in the range of 43 percent to 44 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: “We continue to believe that Tennant is competitively advantaged with attractive growth prospects in a stronger global economy. In the short term, we remain vigilant on controlling costs and enhancing productivity across the organization, while making targeted investments to reach our goal of $1 billion in organic sales and a 12 percent operating profit margin.”
