Regal Beloit Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results

8.8.16

BELOIT, Wis., Aug. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Regal Beloit Corporation (NYSE: RBC) today reported second quarter 2016 diluted earnings per share of $1.26.  Second quarter 2016 adjusted diluted earnings per share* were $1.14.

Key financial results for the second quarter 2016 included:

  • Total net sales of $838.6 million decreased 11.0% from the prior year and included a negative 1.0% foreign currency translation impact and a negative 0.2% divestiture impact.
  • Operating profit of $91.4 million decreased 11.4% from the prior year benefitting from the gain on sale of the Mastergear business. Adjusted operating profit of $81.5 million decreased 27.5% from the prior year. These decreases were primarily driven by lower volume partially offset by benefits from the Simplification initiative and cost controls.
  • The diluted earnings per share of $1.26 included a $0.14 gain on the divestiture of the Mastergear business in the quarter.
  • Free cash flow was 175% of net income benefiting from a $45.4 million decrease in inventory, and the Company paid down $92.6 million of debt.

Second quarter 2016 segment results versus the prior year second quarter included:

  • Commercial and Industrial Systems Segment net sales were $394.7 million, down 10.5%. The majority of the decrease was from the impact of depressed oil & gas and power generation activity, the impact of contractual two-way material price formulas and weak China industrial markets. Foreign currency had a negative 1.6% translation impact. Operating profit margin decreased to 6.4%. Adjusted operating profit margin decreased to 6.5%. These decreases were due primarily to lower volume.
  • Climate Solutions Segment net sales were $254.5 million, down 11.0%. Sales were unfavorably impacted by a continued decline in Middle East HVAC demand, the impact of contractual two-way material price formulas and a slower start to the cooling season in the North American residential HVAC market. Foreign currency had a negative 0.7% translation impact. Operating profit margin decreased to 14.2%. Adjusted operating profit margin decreased to 14.4%. These decreases were due primarily to lower volume which was partially offset by the benefits of the Simplification initiative and cost controls.
  • Power Transmission Solutions Segment net sales decreased 11.9% to $189.4 million. Sales were negatively impacted by weak oil & gas, metals, and agricultural end markets. The Mastergear divestiture had a negative 0.9% impact. Foreign currency had a negative 0.2% translation impact. Operating profit margin increased to 16.0% benefitting from the gain on the divestiture. Adjusted operating profit margin decreased to 10.1%, due primarily to lower volume which was partially offset by acquisition synergies and cost controls.

*This earnings release includes non-GAAP financial measures.  Descriptions of why we believe these non-GAAP measures are useful and reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are included with this earnings release.

"Our results for the second quarter were generally in line with our expectations.  Sales were down due to the ongoing challenges in oil & gas, the weak global industrial end markets, and a slow start to the summer cooling season," said Regal Chairman and CEO Mark Gliebe.  "Despite the weaker sales, we generated free cash flow of 175% of net income, which contributed to a $93 million debt reduction in the quarter."

2016 Outlook

"We expect our second half organic sales to be down low single digits from prior year, which is meaningfully better than our first half results.  We expect better performance in our Climate businesses and easier comparisons in our oil & gas businesses.  Further, we expect our second half earnings to be stronger than the first due to a favorable price/cost impact and incremental savings from our Simplification and cost control initiatives.  Even with this second half earnings improvement, our end markets are not improving as much as we anticipated earlier in the year.

"Accordingly, we have revised our guidance for 2016 adjusted diluted earnings per share to $4.35 to $4.55," continued Mr. Gliebe.

NON-GAAP MEASURES AND OTHER DEFINITIONS
Unaudited
(Dollars in Millions)

We prepare financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). We also periodically disclose certain financial measures in our quarterly earnings releases, on investor conference calls, and in investor presentations and similar events that may be considered "non-GAAP" financial measures. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful measures for providing investors with additional information regarding our results of operations and for helping investors understand and compare our operating results across accounting periods and compared to our peers. In addition, since our management often uses these non-GAAP financial measures to manage and evaluate our business, make operating decisions, and forecast our future results, we believe disclosing these measures helps investors evaluate our business in the same manner as management. This additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our results of operations prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

In this earnings release, we disclose the following non-GAAP financial measures, and we reconcile these measures in the tables below to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures: adjusted diluted earnings per share (both historical and projected), adjusted operating profit, adjusted operating profit margin, free cash flow and free cash flow as a percentage of net income attributable to Regal Beloit Corporation.

In addition to these non-GAAP measures, we also use the term "organic sales" to refer to GAAP sales from existing operations excluding sales from acquired businesses recorded prior to the first anniversary of the acquisition less the amount of sales attributable to any divested businesses ("acquisition sales"), and the impact of foreign currency translation. The impact of foreign currency translation is determined by translating the respective period's sales (excluding acquisition sales) using the same currency exchange rates that were in effect during the prior year periods. We use the term "organic sales growth" to refer to the increase in our sales between periods that is attributable to organic sales. We use the term "acquisition growth" to refer to the increase in our sales between periods that is attributable to acquisition sales.
