BELOIT, Wis., May 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Regal Beloit Corporation (NYSE: RBC), a global leader in the engineering and manufacturing of power transmission solutions and high-efficiency electric motors and systems, reported first quarter 2021 diluted earnings per share of $1.60 compared to $1.12 a year ago, up 43%. First quarter 2021 adjusted diluted earnings per share was a record $1.98 compared to $1.31 a year ago, up 51%.

Key financial results for the first quarter 2021 included:

  • Total net sales of $814.1 million increased 10.9% from the prior year. Excluding the positive impacts of 1.8% from foreign currency, sales increased 9.1% on an organic basis.
  • Income from operations was $97.1 million or 11.9% of net sales, up 240 bps versus prior year. Adjusted income from operations rose $33.9 million or 42.8% from a year ago, to $113.1 million. Adjusted operating margin of 13.9% - a record quarterly result for Regal - was up 310 basis points versus the prior year's 10.8%.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities was $49.5 million and capital expenditures totaled $10.7 million, resulting in free cash flow of $38.8 million, which is 59.1% of adjusted net income.

First quarter 2021 segment results versus the prior year first quarter:

  • Commercial Systems segment net sales were $237.0 million, an increase of 18.9%. Foreign currency had a positive 2.9% impact. The result was a positive organic sales growth rate of 15.9%, driven by strong growth in China and Asia Pacific, gains in the global commercial HVAC business, and continued solid growth in the pool pump market. Operating margin was 11.6%. After net adjustments of $0.2 million, adjusted operating margin was 11.7% of adjusted net sales.
  • Industrial Systems segment net sales were $136.4 million, an increase of 5.2%. Foreign currency had a positive 3.7% impact. The result was a positive organic sales growth rate of 1.5%, driven by strength in China, strong demand in India and continued healthy growth in the data center market. Somewhat offsetting these tailwinds were persistent, albeit diminishing, pressures on later cycle N.A. general industrial end markets, combined with ongoing proactive account pruning. Operating margin was 2.7%. After net adjustments of $0.4 million, adjusted operating margin was 3.0% of adjusted net sales.
  • Climate Solutions segment net sales were $239.1 million, an increase of 13.8%. Foreign currency had a negative 0.2% impact. The result was a positive organic sales growth rate of 14.0%, driven primarily by continued strong demand in N.A. residential HVAC markets, and recovering demand in EMEA, N.A. general industrial markets and the commercial refrigeration business. Notably, orders in the N.A. HVAC business were up 21% in the first quarter on a daily basis, boosted by re-stocking activity, healthy underlying end market demand and weather. Operating margin was 18.1%. After net adjustments of $0.3 million, adjusted operating margin was 18.2% of adjusted net sales.
  • Power Transmission Solutions segment net sales were $201.6 million, an increase of 3.3%. Foreign currency had a positive 1.5% impact. The result was a positive organic sales growth rate of 1.8% driven by project wins in the aerospace end market, strength in the conveying business, healthy growth in China and recovering shorter cycle N.A. general industrial end markets. Partially offsetting these tailwinds were project timing in the still-healthy solar market, and continued, though moderating, declines in oil & gas end markets. Operating margin was 11.2%. After net adjustments of $15.1 million, adjusted operating margin was a record 18.7% of adjusted net sales.

*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.

Summarizing Regal's first quarter 2021 performance, CEO Louis Pinkham commented, "Regal delivered a very strong first quarter that solidly beat our internal expectations, with sales growth accelerating into the double digits and adjusted operating margin expanding over 300 basis points versus prior year to a record level, resulting in adjusted earnings per share growth above 50%. Our Regal team is executing at a high level, and all segments are contributing to our strong performance, aided by recovering industrial end markets, particularly in China, continued strong momentum in the HVAC, pool and data center markets, as well as pockets of share gain across the business. We also announced a transformational merger with Rexnord's PMC business, which will allow Regal to deliver unmatched capabilities across the industrial drive train, and remains on track to close in the fourth quarter of 2021."

Mr. Pinkham went on to comment, "We raised our dividend by 10% in April and as I contemplate the remainder of 2021, I am optimistic about our performance, perhaps most notably on the top line, given solid recent order momentum. While we are clearly facing commodity inflation, all of our segments continue to execute outgrowth and margin enhancement initiatives, guided by an 80/20 mindset and, increasingly, by using lean tools to remove waste, overburden and variance from all processes. Finally, recently refining our business purpose – To Create a Better Tomorrow by Energy-Efficiently Converting Power into Motion – with the subtle but meaningful addition of 'Energy' signals our commitment to be more intentional about leveraging Regal's differentiated engineering capabilities to meet growing demand for more energy-efficient products, and do our part to help the environment."

2021 Guidance

The Company is providing guidance for the second quarter of 2021, including sales growth rates in the high-20's, GAAP diluted earnings per share in a range of $1.50 to $1.70, and adjusted diluted EPS in a range of $1.85 to $2.05. The mid-point of the adjusted diluted EPS range implies over 100% growth versus the prior year.

The Company's guidance assumes no material decline in its production capacity, or in its ability to conduct commercial operations, either from COVID-related disruptions, or other factors, including supply chain disruptions, versus levels as of the date of this release.

The Company's guidance does not take into account any costs, expenses or other effects of the transaction with respect to Rexnord's Process & Motion Control (PMC) business.

A reconciliation of the Company's GAAP EPS guidance to its adjusted EPS guidance is included in a table later in this release.

NON-GAAP MEASURES AND OTHER DEFINITIONS
Unaudited
(Dollars in Millions, Except per Share Data)

We prepare financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("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. 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 income from operations, adjusted operating margin, adjusted net sales, net debt, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted operating leverage, adjusted net income attributable to Regal Beloit Corporation, free cash flow, free cash flow as a percentage of adjusted net income attributable to Regal Beloit Corporation, adjusted income before taxes, adjusted provision for income taxes, adjusted effective tax rate, net sales from ongoing business, adjusted income from operations of ongoing business, ongoing business adjusted operating margin and adjusted diluted earnings per share for ongoing business. 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. Our management primarily uses adjusted income from operations, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, and adjusted operating leverage to help us manage and evaluate our business and make operating decisions, while adjusted diluted earnings per share, net debt, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net sales, adjusted net income attributable to Regal Beloit Corporation, free cash flow, free cash flow as a percentage of adjusted net income attributable to Regal Beloit Corporation, adjusted income before taxes, adjusted provision for income taxes, adjusted effective tax rate, net sales from ongoing business, adjusted income from operations of ongoing business, ongoing business adjusted operating margin and adjusted diluted earnings per share for ongoing business are primarily used to help us evaluate our business and forecast our future results. Accordingly, we believe disclosing and reconciling each of these measures helps investors evaluate our business in the same manner as management.

In addition to these non-GAAP measures, we also use the term "organic sales" to refer to GAAP sales from existing operations excluding any sales from acquired businesses recorded prior to the first anniversary of the acquisition ("net sales from business acquired") and excluding any sales from business divested/to be exited ("net sales from business divested/to be exited") recorded prior to the first anniversary of the exit and excluding the impact of foreign currency translation. The impact of foreign currency translation is determined by translating the respective period's organic sales using the 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. For further clarification, we may use the term "acquisition growth" to refer to the increase in our sales between periods that is attributable to acquisition sales.
