Tennant Company Reports 2018 Third-Quarter Results

Oct. 24, 2018

Net sales of $273.3 million in the third quarter, up 4.3 percent

Organic sales rose 6.1 percent, led by the Americas and Asia-Pacific regions

Third-quarter GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.52; Adjusted EPS excluding special items of $0.54

Adjusted EBITDA of $29.3 million, or 10.7 percent of sales

Company increases and narrows 2018 full-year guidance ranges for net sales, adjusted net earnings and adjusted EBITDA

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Tennant Company (“Tennant”) (NYSE: TNC), a world leader in designing, manufacturing and marketing of solutions that help create a cleaner, safer, healthier world, today reported net sales of $273.3 million and net earnings of $9.7 million, or $0.52 per diluted share and adjusted net earnings of $0.54 per diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2018. The 2018 third-quarter reported results reflected the impact of non-operational items that reduced net earnings by $0.4 million, or $0.02 per diluted share. Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) in the 2018 third quarter rose to $29.3 million, or 10.7 percent of sales, from $28.0 million, or 10.7 percent of sales, in the same quarter last year. (See the Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Table.)

“We remain pleased with our ability to generate broad-based growth across our geographies, products and channels, improving efficiencies in our business and continuing to invest for the future,” said Chris Killingstad, Tennant Company's president and chief executive officer. “While gross margin performance in the period reflected factors affecting U.S.-based manufacturers, such as labor and raw material shortages, tariffs and higher freight costs, we did continue to improve our field-service utilization and manufacturing productivity. We also made efficient use of our expense structure and continue to generate strong cash flow. We are pleased with our progress to date and are confident in the underlying performance of the business.”

Third-Quarter Operating Review
Tennant’s 2018 third-quarter consolidated net sales of $273.3 million grew approximately 4.3 percent over the same period last year. This includes a 1.7 percent reduction from foreign currency and an organic growth of 6.1 percent.

Sales in the Americas region improved 8.9 percent, or 10.6 percent organically, reflecting strength in both our North and Latin American regions. North America showed considerable organic growth at 11.1 percent during the quarter driven by strength in our strategic account and distribution channels, along with continued growth in our service and parts and consumables businesses. Sales in the Americas region also reflect 6.4 percent organic growth in the Latin American region led by continued growth in our Brazilian market. Sales in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region were 5.8 percent lower, or down 4.5 percent organically, reflecting a challenging comparable sales performance from 2017 third quarter of 14.6 percent organic growth. Sales in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region rose 7.4 percent, or 10.6 percent organically, primarily led by industrial product growth in China.

Gross margin in the 2018 third quarter was 39.6 percent, compared to 39.9 percent in the same period last year. The prior year gross margin rate included a $2.2 million acquisition-related charge. Excluding the charge, the prior year gross margin rate was 40.8 percent. The year-over-year decline reflects the continued robust growth in our strategic account channel, higher freight costs, manufacturing productivity issues associated with raw material and labor shortages and the impact from newly enacted tariffs. These factors were partially offset by improved operational performance in both manufacturing and service that are the result of Tennant’s operational efficiency strategies. The company remains intently focused on gross margin expansion and is continually identifying cost savings initiatives in order to address external challenges impacting gross margin rates.

Selling and administrative (S&A) expense in the 2018 third quarter was $85.1 million, or 31.2 percent of sales, compared to $85.7 million, or 32.7 percent of sales, a year ago. Tennant continues to balance efficiency with investments toward growth. S&A in the third quarters of 2018 and 2017 reflected non-operational items that, on a net basis, increased S&A expenses by $0.8 million and $0.9 million, respectively. In addition, the third quarter of 2018 included a non-cash amortization expense related to the IPC acquisition of $5.4 million, or 2.0 percent of sales, compared to $7.3 million, or 2.8 percent of sales, in last year’s third quarter. The company remains committed to delivering expense leverage in order to expand profit margins.

Tennant’s 2018 third-quarter net earnings were $9.7 million, compared to net earnings of $3.6 million in the 2017 third quarter. Excluding the non-operational items, the 2018 third-quarter net earnings were $10.0 million, compared to $5.8 million in the 2017 third quarter. (See the Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Table.)

2018 Business Outlook
Killingstad concluded, “We remain focused on two goals: driving sustainable growth and improving our operational efficiencies. This year continues to present headwinds in the forms of a tight labor market, increased freight costs and tariff-related impacts. However, we are pleased thus far with our ability to execute, in spite of these challenges, and to maintain our momentum, which gives us confidence to increase our previously announced full-year guidance ranges for net sales, adjusted net EPS and adjusted EBITDA.”

Tennant is increasing and narrowing its previously announced 2018 full-year revenue guidance to be in the range of $1.115 billion to $1.125 billion, up 11.2 percent to 12.2 percent compared to the prior year and reflecting organic growth of approximately 5 percent. Based on the anticipated higher level of sales, continued tight management of controllable expenses, and impact of lower-than-expected tax rates, Tennant is increasing the low and high end of adjusted earnings per share to a range of $2.05 to $2.15. The company also is adjusting the 2018 full-year reported GAAP earnings to a range of $1.75 to $1.85 per share and increasing adjusted EBITDA to a range of $119 million to $122 million.

Tennant's 2018 annual financial outlook includes the following additional assumptions:

  • Strong growth in most regions, especially strategic accounts in North America;
  • Gross margin performance of approximately 40.5 percent;
  • R&D expense of approximately 3.0 percent of sales;
  • Capital expenditures of approximately $20 million; and
  • An effective tax rate of approximately 15 percent.

These statements do not relate to strictly historical or current facts and provide current expectations or forecasts of future events. Any such expectations or forecasts of future events are subject to a variety of factors. These include factors that affect all businesses operating in a global market as well as matters specific to us and the markets we serve. Particular risks and uncertainties presently facing us include: our ability to effectively manage organizational changes; our ability to attract, retain and develop key personnel and create effective succession planning strategies; the competition in our business; fluctuations in the cost, quality or availability of raw materials and purchased components; our ability to successfully upgrade and evolve our information technology systems; our ability to develop and commercialize new innovative products and services; our ability to integrate acquisitions, including IPC; our ability to generate sufficient cash to satisfy our debt obligations; geopolitical and economic uncertainty throughout the world; our ability to successfully protect our information technology systems from cybersecurity risks; the occurrence of a significant business interruption; our ability to comply with laws and regulations; the potential disruption of our business from actions of activist investors or others; the relative strength of the U.S. dollar, which affects the cost of our materials and products purchased and sold internationally; unforeseen product liability claims or product quality issues; and our internal control over financial reporting risks resulting from our acquisition of IPC.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This news release and the related conference call include presentation of non-GAAP measures that include or exclude special items. Management believes that the non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors regarding the company’s results of operations and financial condition because they permit a more meaningful comparison and understanding of Tennant Company’s operating performance for the current, past or future periods. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to monitor and evaluate ongoing operating results and trends, and to gain an understanding of the comparative operating performance of the company.

We believe that disclosing Selling and Administrative Expense - as adjusted, Profit from Operations - as adjusted, Operating Margin - as adjusted, Profit Before Income Taxes - as adjusted, Income Tax Expense - as adjusted, Net Earnings Attributable to Tennant Company - as adjusted and Net Earnings Attributable to Tennant Company per Share - as adjusted (collectively, the “Non-GAAP Measures”), excluding the impacts from restructuring charge, acquisition costs, certain non-operational professional services and debt financing costs write-off, are useful to investors as a measure of operating performance. We use these as one measure to monitor and evaluate operating performance. The non-GAAP measures are financial measures that do not reflect United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). We calculate Selling and Administrative Expense - as adjusted, Profit from Operations - as adjusted, Operating Margin - as adjusted and Profit Before Income Taxes - as adjusted by adding back the pre-tax effect of the restructuring charge, acquisition costs and certain non-operational professional services. We calculate Income Tax Expense - as adjusted by adding back the tax effect of the restructuring charge, acquisition costs, certain non-operational professional services and debt financing costs write-off. We calculate Net Earnings Attributable to Tennant Company - as adjusted by adding back the after-tax effect of the restructuring charge, acquisition costs, certain non-operational professional services and debt financing costs write-off. We calculate Net Earnings Attributable to Tennant Company per Share - as adjusted by adding back the after-tax effect of the restructuring charge, acquisition costs, certain non-operational professional services, debt financing costs write-off and dividing the result by the diluted weighted average shares outstanding.

We believe that disclosing Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) and EBITDA Margin, excluding the impact from restructuring charge, acquisition costs, certain non-operational professional services and debt financing costs write-off (EBITDA - as adjusted) and EBITDA margin - as adjusted, is useful to investors as a measure of operating performance. We use these measures to monitor and evaluate operating performance. EBITDA - as adjusted and EBITDA Margin - as adjusted are financial measures that do not reflect GAAP. We calculate EBITDA - as adjusted by adding back the pre-tax effect of the restructuring charge, acquisition costs, certain non-operating professional services, debt financing costs write-off, Interest Income, Interest Expense, Income Tax Expense, Depreciation Expense and Amortization Expense to Net Earnings (Loss) - as reported. We calculate EBITDA Margin - as adjusted by dividing EBITDA - as adjusted by Net Sales.

Investors should consider these non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, not as a substitute for, or better than, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of the components of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Table to this earnings release.
