Adjusted EPS, excluding special items, of $0.60;

Company reaffirms 2017 full year net sales guidance range and lowers EPS guidance range

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 record second quarter net sales of $270.8 million and a net loss of $2.6 million, or a $0.15 loss per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2017. The 2017 second quarter included special items that reduced earnings by a total of $0.75 per share: a $4.7 million pre-tax charge, or $0.27 per share, for acquisition costs related to the IPC Group acquisition; a $6.2 million pre-tax charge, or $0.22 per share, reflecting acquisition-related financing costs; a $6.2 million pre-tax charge, or $0.25 per share, for acquisition-related inventory step-up flow through; and a $0.2 million pre-tax charge, or $0.01 per share, related to a pension plan settlement charge. Excluding these special items, adjusted 2017 second quarter net earnings were $10.6 million, or $0.60 per share. In the 2016 second quarter, Tennant’s net earnings were $15.3 million, or $0.85 per diluted share, on net sales of $216.8 million. (See the Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Table.)

"Our performance during the 2017 second quarter primarily reflected near-term operational headwinds mainly stemming from our first quarter 2017 restructuring,” said Chris Killingstad, Tennant Company's president and chief executive officer. “During the second quarter, we closed and began integrating our acquisition of IPC Group. IPC boosts our presence and market share in Europe and more than doubles Tennant’s current EMEA business and we are pleased with IPC’s contribution at this early stage. Furthermore, we achieved the important strategic milestone of launching new e-Commerce capabilities in June, which will allow us to better serve our customers. Lastly, we forged ahead with efforts, following our restructuring, to rebalance and reallocate our resources, as well as initiatives toward improving field service productivity and manufacturing efficiencies. These actions negatively impacted the gross margin of Tennant, excluding IPC. While we are disappointed with our second quarter profitability, we largely control these factors and are committed to improving margins, although these issues may not be resolved until early 2018.”

On April 6, 2017, Tennant announced it completed the acquisition of IP Cleaning, S.p.A. and its subsidiaries (IPC Group). IPC Group, based in Italy, designs and manufactures innovative professional cleaning equipment, tools and other solutions. Tennant anticipates that the acquisition will be accretive to the 2018 full year earnings per share. Organic sales growth within the recently acquired IPC Group increased approximately 8 percent in the 2017 second quarter versus the prior-year quarter.

Second Quarter Operating Review
The company's 2017 second quarter consolidated net sales of $270.8 million rose 24.9 percent over the prior-year quarter. Unfavorable foreign currency exchange lowered consolidated net sales by approximately 1.0 percent and the impact of the August 2016 Florock acquisition and the April 2017 IPC acquisition increased consolidated net sales by 28.2 percent. Organic net sales, which exclude the impact of foreign currency exchange, acquisitions and divestitures, declined approximately 2.3 percent. 2017 second quarter results reflected increased sales through distribution and sales of new products, particularly the M17 sweeper-scrubber, although this was more than offset by lower sales in the other channels and product categories.

Geographically, sales in the Americas rose 3.2 percent, but declined 2.8 percent organically, excluding the impact of the Florock and IPC acquisitions of 6.0 percent. Results in the Americas region reflect challenging year-over-year comparisons due to record level of sales in the 2016 second quarter. In the 2017 second quarter, organic sales declined; however, demand for new products favorably impacted sales in the region. Sales in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region were up 124.9 percent and declined 4.8 percent organically, with solid sales performance in the Central Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa (CEEMEA) markets being more than offset by declines in the other countries. Organic sales in EMEA exclude an unfavorable foreign currency exchange impact of approximately 3.5 percent and the impact of the IPC acquisition of 133.2 percent. Sales in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region grew by 30.7 percent and increased approximately 3.1 percent organically, excluding a negative foreign currency exchange impact of about 2.0 percent and the impact of the IPC acquisition of 29.6 percent. Sales in the APAC region reflected strong growth in China and Southeast Asia, partially offset by declines in Australia and Japan.

Tennant's gross margin in the 2017 second quarter was 38.6 percent, and the as adjusted gross margin, excluding the $6.2 million IPC acquisition-related inventory step-up flow through, was 40.9 percent compared to 43.9 percent in the prior-year quarter. The as adjusted 300 basis point decrease primarily reflects continued field service productivity challenges related to organizational changes from the restructuring, the near-term unfavorable impact from investments in manufacturing automation initiatives, and raw material cost inflation.

Research and development (R&D) expense for the 2017 second quarter totaled $7.9 million, or 2.9 percent of sales, versus $8.4 million, or 3.9 percent of sales, a year ago. The company continues to invest in developing a robust pipeline of innovative new products and technologies and the advancement of detergent-free products, fleet management and other sustainable technologies.

Selling and administrative (S&A) expense in the 2017 second quarter was $87.5 million, or 32.3 percent of sales, and as adjusted was $82.6 million or 30.5 percent of sales, versus the prior-year quarter S&A expense of $64.3 million, or 29.6 percent of sales. The 2017 as adjusted second quarter S&A expense excludes the $4.7 million IPC acquisition costs and the $0.2 million pension plan settlement charge. Tennant continued to balance disciplined spending control with investments in key growth initiatives, such as new e-Business capabilities.

Tennant's 2017 second quarter operating profit was $9.2 million, or 3.4 percent of sales, and the operating profit as adjusted to exclude the $6.2 million IPC acquisition-related inventory step-up flow through, the $4.7 million IPC acquisitions costs and the $0.2 million pension plan settlement charge, was $20.2 million, or 7.5 percent of sales, compared to an operating profit of $22.6 million, or 10.4 percent of sales, in the year-ago quarter. The 2017 second quarter Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) as adjusted was $29.8 million, or 11.0 percent of sales, compared to $27.4 million, or 12.6 percent of sales in the year-ago quarter. (See the Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Table.)

New Product and Technology Pipeline
In 2017, the company plans to introduce 32 new products and product variants, excluding IPC products. In the 2017 second quarter, Tennant launched:

  • The V3e Compact Dry Canister Vacuum, designed for carpeted and hard floor surfaces with three-stage HEPA filtration system and low 68 dBA sound level and features that increase operator productivity.
  • Its distribution of the i-mop in North America, as part of a joint venture. The i-mop is a versatile walk-behind scrubber that combines the cleaning performance of an autoscrubber with the agility of a flat mop.

Commented Killingstad: “New product innovation is a key growth driver for Tennant and we continue to experience healthy demand for recently launched products. Through the first half of 2017, 45 percent of our equipment sales came from products introduced within the last three years, which significantly outpaced our 30 percent target. We are concentrating our new product development on areas of most compelling need to customers, such as lower overall operating cost and improved maintenance and fleet-management capabilities. We expect to continue to open up new frontiers and new growth opportunities through our advanced product development efforts.”

2017 First Half Results
For the six months ended June 30, 2017, Tennant generated a net loss of $6.5 million, or a $0.37 loss per share, on net sales of $461.9 million. The 2017 first half included special items totaling $29.4 million pre-tax that reduced earnings by a total of $1.28 per share. Excluding these special items, adjusted 2017 first half net earnings were $16.0 million, or $0.91 earnings per share. For the six months ended June 30, 2016, the company reported net earnings of $19.8 million, or $1.10 per diluted share on net sales of $396.7 million.

Unfavorable foreign currency exchange lowered consolidated net sales by approximately 0.5 percent, and the impact of the 2016 Florock acquisition and the 2017 IPC acquisition increased consolidated net sales by 15.9 percent. Organic net sales, which exclude the impact of foreign currency exchange, acquisitions and divestitures, rose approximately 1.0 percent versus the prior-year period.

Year-to-date 2017 gross margin was 39.9, and the as adjusted gross margin, excluding the $6.2 million IPC acquisition-related inventory step-up flow through, was 41.2 percent versus 43.6 percent in the year-earlier period. R&D expense in the 2017 first half was $16.3 million, or 3.5 percent of sales, compared to $16.3 million, or 4.1 percent of sales, in the prior-year period. S&A expense in the 2017 first half was $161.4 million, or 34.9 percent of sales, and the as adjusted S&A expense, excluding the $8.0 million restructuring charge, the $7.6 million IPC acquisition costs and the $0.2 million pension plan settlement charge, was $145.6 million, or 31.5 percent of sales, versus $126.7 million, or 31.9 percent of sales, in the first six months of 2016.

Operating profit in the 2017 first half was $6.5 million, or 1.4 percent of sales, and the as adjusted operating profit, excluding the $6.2 million IPC acquisition-related inventory step-up flow through, the $8.0 million restructuring charge, the $7.6 million IPC acquisition costs and the $0.2 million pension plan settlement charge, was $28.5 million, or 6.2 percent of sales, compared to $29.7 million, or 7.5 percent of sales, in the same period last year. Foreign currency exchange rates had a nominal impact on operating profit in the first half of 2017. The 2017 first half EBITDA as adjusted was $42.8 million, or 9.3 percent of sales, compared to $38.5 million, or 9.7 percent of sales, in the 2016 first half. (See the Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Table.)

Cash from operations totaled a negative $2.5 million in the 2017 first half, compared to a positive $12.4 million in the year-earlier period. The company's total debt was $411.0 million, up from $21.2 million at the end of the prior-year quarter reflecting the recent IPC acquisition. Cash on the balance sheet totaled $53.9 million versus $27.9 million a year ago. Reflecting Tennant’s ongoing commitment to enhancing shareholder return, the company paid cash dividends of $7.5 million in the 2017 first half.

2017 Business Outlook
Killingstad concluded: “Our current set of strategies are focused on one goal - re-engineering a Tennant Company with the market position, product portfolio, customer centricity and operating excellence that positions us for profitable growth. As our efforts in the first half of 2017 demonstrate, we are committed to pursuing the opportunities and navigating the challenges that come with change. We achieved several strategic milestones in the first half of 2017. Tennant, through the acquisition of IPC, has improved its global market position. Our commitment to innovation and new product launches remains on schedule, and we are in the process of better aligning our resources to drive improved efficiencies and optimize expense levels. The global macroeconomic environment still merits caution, but we are optimistic about our sales momentum as we head into the second half of 2017; however, it will be difficult to improve the field service and manufacturing challenges fast enough to offset the unfavorable variances we had in the first half of 2017. Therefore, we are reaffirming our full year sales guidance range and lowering our full year earnings guidance range.”

Tennant Company continues to estimate 2017 full year net sales in the range of $960 million to $990 million, up 18.7 percent to 22.4 percent, or up approximately 1 percent to 3 percent organically, assuming an unfavorable foreign currency exchange impact on sales of approximately 1 percent, an additional 0.8 percent inorganic growth from the August 2016 Florock acquisition, and inorganic growth from the April 2017 IPC acquisition in the range of 18.6 percent to 20.4 percent. Tennant now expects 2017 full year reported earnings in the range of $0.85 to $1.05 per diluted share, which includes the first quarter restructuring charge, one-time acquisition and financing costs related to the IPC Group acquisition, the impact on earnings from the preliminary estimate of IPC acquisition-related inventory step-up flow through, a pension plan settlement charge, and the interest expense from the IPC acquisition-related financing. Previously, the company expected 2017 full year reported earnings in the range of $1.05 to $1.25 per diluted share. Tennant now expects 2017 full year adjusted earnings in the range of $2.20 to $2.40 per diluted share. Previously, the company expected 2017 full year adjusted earnings in the range of $2.40 to $2.60 per diluted share. The 2017 full year adjusted earnings exclude the following non-recurring costs totaling $31.4 million pre-tax, or $1.36 per diluted share:

1) $8.0 million restructuring charge (recorded in the 2017 first quarter in S&A Expense)

2) $7.6 million IPC acquisition costs ($2.9 million recorded in the 2017 first quarter and $4.7 million recorded in the 2017 second quarter in S&A Expense)

3) $7.4 million IPC-related financing costs ($1.2 million recorded in the 2017 first quarter and $6.2 million recorded in the 2017 second quarter in Other Expense, Net)

4) $8.2 million IPC acquisition inventory step-up ($6.2 million recorded in the 2017 second quarter in Cost of Sales and the remainder to be recorded in the 2017 third quarter)

5) $0.2 million pension plan settlement charge (recorded in the 2017 second quarter in S&A Expense)

Foreign currency exchange in 2017 is estimated to negatively impact operating profit by approximately $2.5 million, or a negative impact of approximately $0.10 per diluted share. On an as adjusted and “Constant Currency” basis (assuming no change in foreign exchange rates from the prior year), 2017 full year earnings are now estimated to be in the range of $2.30 to $2.50 per diluted share. Previously, the company expected 2017 full year earnings on an as adjusted and “Constant Currency” basis in the range of $2.50 to $2.70 per diluted share. The revised 2017 full year earnings guidance still anticipates an as adjusted 2017 dilution from the IPC acquisition of $0.10 per diluted share. For the 2016 full year, earnings per diluted share totaled $2.59 on net sales of $808.6 million.

Tennant’s 2017 annual financial outlook includes the following additional assumptions:

  • Continued stable economy in North America, modest improvement in Europe and a challenging business environment in APAC;
  • Gross margin performance in the range of 41 to 42 percent;
  • R&D expense in the range of 3 percent to 4 percent of sales;
  • Capital expenditures in the range of $25 million to $30 million; and
  • An effective tax rate of approximately 29 percent.
