Manitowoc Foodservice Reports Solid Second Quarter Results

August 11, 2016

Continued solid delivery of operating improvements; reconfirming full-year margin guidance; adjusting sales and EPS guidance for softness in QSR market and Brexit impact; announces more Right-Sizing in second half

NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Manitowoc Foodservice, Inc. (NYSE: MFS), today announced solid financial results for its 2016 second quarter. Net sales in the second quarter were $368.4 million compared to $407.7 million in last year’s second quarter, a 9.6 percent decrease. However, prior year second quarter net sales included $35.1 million from Kysor Panel Systems (“KPS”), which was sold in December 2015 and excluded $1.6 million from Welbilt Manufacturing (Thailand), Ltd. (“Welbilt”), previously a 50 percent-owned joint venture of which we acquired the remaining 50 percent interest in October 2015. Adjusted for these items, organic net sales decreased by 1.5 percent in the second quarter compared to last year’s second quarter. In addition, foreign currency translation negatively impacted 2016 second quarter sales by $5.0 million, or 1.3 percent, resulting in a constant currency organic net sales decrease of 0.2 percent.

Year-to-date, net sales were $693.9 million compared to $753.1 million in the first six months of 2015, a 7.9 percent decrease. Prior year net sales in the first six months included $60.5 million from KPS and excluded $3.8 million from Welbilt. Adjusted for these items, year-to-date organic net sales decreased by 0.4 percent compared to the first six months of 2015. In addition, foreign currency translation negatively impacted year-to-date sales by $11.7 million, or 1.7 percent, resulting in a constant currency organic net sales increase of 1.3 percent compared to the first six months of 2015.

Net earnings in the second quarter were $15.1 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.11, compared to $36.9 million and $0.27 per share on a carve-out basis in the second quarter of 2015. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted 2016 second quarter net earnings by $0.2 million. Excluding restructuring and separation expenses, adjusted net earnings were $16.0 million and adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.12 in the second quarter versus $37.0 million and $0.27 per share, respectively, on a carve-out basis in the second quarter of 2015. Earnings from operations were $49.8 million in the second quarter compared to $49.5 million in last year’s second quarter. As a percentage of net sales, earnings from operations were 13.5 percent in the quarter versus 12.1 percent in last year’s second quarter. Earnings before interest, taxes, other (income) expense and amortization (excluding separation and restructuring expenses), or “Adjusted Operating EBITA”, were $59.3 million in the second quarter versus $57.7 million in last year’s second quarter, a 2.8 percent increase. As a percentage of net sales, our second quarter Adjusted Operating EBITA margin was 16.1 percent versus 14.2 percent last year, a 190 basis point improvement. Adjusted Operating EBITA in the quarter also improved by 200 basis points versus the first quarter of this year. Prior year second quarter Adjusted Operating EBITA included $3.8 million from KPS. The main drivers of the margin improvement in the second quarter were savings from our Simplification and Right-Sizing initiatives, lower material and other manufacturing costs, partially offset by lower fixed cost absorption and higher incentive compensation. A reconciliation of GAAP net earnings and diluted earnings per share to adjusted net earnings, adjusted diluted earnings per share, and Adjusted Operating EBITA is provided later in this announcement.

Year-to-date, net earnings were $33.2 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.24, compared to $50.9 million and $0.37 per share on a carve-out basis for the first six months of 2015. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted 2016 six month net earnings by $0.1 million. Excluding restructuring and separation expenses, adjusted net earnings were $36.9 million and adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.27 year-to-date versus $51.5 million and $0.37 per share, respectively, on a carve-out basis for the six month period in 2015. Earnings from operations were $83.5 million year-to-date compared to $65.2 million in the first six months of 2015. As a percentage of net sales, earnings from operations were 12.0 percent year-to-date versus 8.7 percent for the six month period in 2015. Adjusted Operating EBITA was $105.1 million year-to-date versus $81.9 million in the first six months of 2015, a 28.3 percent increase. As a percentage of net sales, year-to-date 2016 Adjusted Operating EBITA margin was 15.1 percent versus 10.9 percent for the six month period in 2015, a 420 basis point improvement. Prior year Adjusted Operating EBITA for the first six months included $4.9 million from KPS and excluded $0.1 million from Welbilt.

“We continued to execute well in the second quarter against our key 2016 objectives to “Deliver” on our margin improvement target and to “De-Lever” our balance sheet,” said Hubertus Muehlhaeuser, Manitowoc Foodservice’s President and CEO. “Our focus on improving our operations with our Simplification and Right-Sizing initiatives was evidenced by the delivery of the fourth consecutive quarter of improved Adjusted Operating EBITA margins. Within Simplification, we pruned approximately 3 percent of our equipment SKUs during the quarter, bringing our total equipment SKU reduction to nearly 8 percent since we adopted the 80/20 methodology. Within Right-Sizing during the quarter, we successfully completed the closure of our Cleveland, Ohio plant after transferring the production of that plant's products to three receiving plants - all with minimal disruptions for our customers while maintaining product quality and with a significantly improved cost structure. These actions, along with our previously completed transfer of our Manitowoc® Ice Machine assembly to our Monterrey plant, addressed approximately 10 percent of our 20 percent manufacturing capacity reduction target. We also began the journey of de-levering our balance sheet this quarter by paying down $38.3 million of debt.”

Today, the company is also announcing the next steps in Right-Sizing its global manufacturing capacity by transferring manufacturing from its Sellersburg, Indiana plant to its plants in Tijuana and Monterrey, Mexico and subsequently closing the Sellersburg plant, which is anticipated to occur by early 2017. The company will also transfer the products made at its Singapore plant to its plants in Prachinburi, Thailand and Foshan, China. Subsequently, the company will close the Singapore plant which should occur by the end of the third quarter of 2016. The company expects to incur approximately $3 million of restructuring expenses in 2016 related to the product transfers and plant closures and will have achieved the majority of its rightsizing milestone of 20 percent manufacturing capacity reduction by the end of 2016.

“Second quarter organic net sales in constant currency were flat primarily due to softness in the Quick Service Restaurant (“QSR”) market in North America. While we expect this softness to continue, we do expect sales growth in the second half of 2016 as we introduce and roll out new products over the next several months with a couple of large QSRs. We also expect the recent weakening of the British pound following the United Kingdom's vote to exit the European Union ("Brexit") to have a negative impact on foreign currency translation over the balance of 2016.”

“Our focus on improving our operations remains steadfast. This journey to improve our margins to industry-competitive levels is a multi-year one and while we have made great progress to date, we are still early in the journey and it is critical to our long-term success to remain very disciplined in the ongoing execution of our Simplification and Right-Sizing initiatives," concluded Muehlhaeuser.

Segment Discussion

Net sales in our Americas segment decreased 13.1 percent in the quarter to $301.2 million from $346.7 million in last year’s second quarter. Adjusted for the divestiture of KPS, organic net sales decreased by 3.3 percent from $311.6 million in the same period last year. Intersegment net sales decreased $5.5 million and organic third party net sales decreased $4.9 million in the quarter compared to last year’s second quarter. We continued to see softness in hot-side products and the expected seasonal increase in ice machine sales was slower to materialize in the second quarter than anticipated. In addition, foreign currency had a $2.7 million negative impact on organic third party net sales in the quarter. Year-to-date, net sales were $564.8 million versus $640.4 million last year. Adjusted for the divestiture of KPS, net sales decreased 2.6 percent from $579.9 million in the six month period last year. Intersegment sales decreased $11.4 million and organic third party net sales decreased $3.7 million year-to-date compared to the six month period last year. Year-to-date, foreign currency translation had a $6.1 million negative impact on organic third party net sales. Second quarter Operating EBITA in the Americas segment was $55.0 million compared to $51.7 million in the second quarter of 2015. As a percentage of net sales, our Operating EBITA margin was 18.3 percent in the second quarter versus 14.9 percent in the same period last year. The Operating EBITA margin increase was primarily driven by savings from our Simplification and Right-Sizing initiatives, improvement in our KitchenCare® operations, operating efficiency improvements, and the sale of KPS. Year-to-date, Americas segment Operating EBITA was $101.7 million versus $79.7 million for the first six months of last year. As a percentage of net sales, year-to-date Operating EBITA was 18.0 percent versus 12.4 percent for the first six months of last year.

Net sales in our EMEA segment were $76.3 million, a 0.7 percent increase from $75.8 million in the second quarter of 2015. Intersegment net sales decreased $1.6 million and third party net sales increased $2.1 million in the quarter compared to last year’s second quarter. The third party net sales increase was driven primarily by strong sales of the Merrychef® eikon® e2s high-speed ovens, KitchenCare improvement in the region, and pricing realization from the 80/20 simplification initiative. Foreign currency translation partially offset these positive drivers with a $1.4 million negative impact on third party net sales in the quarter. Year-to-date, net sales in our EMEA segment were $144.9 million versus $146.0 million last year. Intersegment net sales decreased $7.1 million and organic third party net sales increased $6.0 million year-to-date compared to the six month period last year. Year-to-date, foreign currency translation had a $3.7 million negative impact on third party net sales. Second quarter Operating EBITA in the EMEA segment was $10.1 million compared to $6.8 million in the second quarter of 2015. As a percentage of net sales, our Operating EBITA margin was 13.2 percent in the second quarter versus 9.0 percent in the same period last year. The Operating EBITA margin increase was primarily driven by savings from our Simplification and Right-Sizing initiatives, better product mix from our new product introductions, and operating efficiency improvements. Year-to-date, the EMEA segment Operating EBITA was $16.9 million versus $10.5 million in the same period last year. As a percentage of net sales, year-to-date Operating EBITA was 11.7 percent versus 7.2 percent in the same period last year.

Net sales in our APAC segment were $43.1 million, a 5.5 percent decrease from $45.6 million from last year’s second quarter. Adjusted for the acquisition of Welbilt, organic net sales decreased 8.7 percent from $47.2 million in the same period last year. Intersegment net sales decreased $1.1 million and organic third party net sales decreased $3.0 million in the quarter compared to last year’s second quarter. The organic third party net sales decrease was mainly due to lower QSR new store openings in China and softer general market sales in the quarter. Also, foreign currency translation had a $0.9 million negative impact on organic third party net sales in the quarter. Year-to-date, net sales in our APAC segment were $82.0 million versus $86.9 million in the same period last year. Adjusted for the acquisition of Welbilt, organic net sales decreased 9.6 percent from $90.7 million in the six month period last year. Intersegment net sales decreased $3.9 million and organic third party net sales decreased $4.8 million year-to-date compared to the six month period last year. Year-to-date, foreign currency translation had a $1.9 million negative impact on organic third party net sales. Second quarter Operating EBITA in the APAC segment was $4.2 million compared to $6.2 million in the second quarter of 2015. As a percentage of net sales, our Operating EBITA margin was 9.7 percent in the first quarter versus 13.6 percent in the same period last year. The Operating EBITA margin decrease was primarily driven by the negative impact of lower sales volumes on fixed cost absorption, partially offset by savings from our Simplification and Right-Sizing Initiatives and restructuring charges. Year-to-date, the APAC segment Operating EBITA was $7.3 million versus $10.2 million last year. As a percentage of net sales, year-to-date Operating EBITA was 8.9 percent versus 11.7 percent last year.

Liquidity Discussion

Free cash flow was $23.5 million in the quarter. Accounts receivable increased $13.9 million due to higher sales in the second quarter compared sequentially to the first quarter, while inventory and accounts payable balances were generally stable. Other assets and other current and long-term liabilities were a net $9.1 million source of cash in the second quarter, mainly due to rebate accruals that will be paid after year end. During the quarter, we paid down outstanding debt by $38.3 million including $25.0 million on Term Loan B.

2016 Guidance

We are reaffirming our full-year 2016 guidance for Adjusted Operating EBITA margin, and are updating our guidance for organic net sales and adjusted diluted EPS due to the ongoing softness in the QSR market in North America and the impact of Brexit on foreign currency translation.

  • Adjusted Operating EBITA margin: between 16 and 17 percent;

ADJUSTED OPERATING EBITA

In addition to analyzing its results on a U.S. GAAP basis, management also reviews its results on an "Operating EBITA" basis. Operating EBITA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, other (income) expense and amortization. Management uses Operating EBITA as the basis on which it evaluates its financial performance and makes resource allocation and other operating decisions. Management considers it important that investors review the same operating information that it uses. In addition, the table below also presents Adjusted Operating EBITA which is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, other (income) expense and amortization plus certain items such as restructuring and separation charges.
