RICHMOND, Va., July 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Brink's Company (NYSE:BCO), the global leader in total cash management, secure logistics and payment solutions, today announced results for the second quarter of 2018.

(In millions, except for per share amounts) Second-Quarter 2018
  GAAP   Change   Non-GAAP   Change
Revenue $ 850     +5 %   $ 824     +8 %
Operating Profit $ 62     +28 %   $ 76     +25 %
Operating Margin 7.3 %   +130 bps   9.2 %   +120 bps
Net Income / Adjusted EBITDA(a) $ (108 )   unfav   $ 118     +25 %
EPS $ (2.11 )   unfav   $ 0.74     +12 %
  1. The non-GAAP financial metric, adjusted EBITDA, is presented with its corresponding GAAP metric, net income attributable to Brink's.

Highlights include:

  • GAAP EPS $(2.11) vs $.28; 2018 EPS includes $2.47 charge for Venezuela deconsolidation
  • Non-GAAP EPS $.74 vs $.66; ninth consecutive quarter of year-over-year profit increases
  • North America profits up 55% (60% constant currency) on strength in U.S. and Mexico
  • South America profits up 27% (62% constant currency) driven by Brazil, Argentina and Chile
  • 2018 guidance revised for negative currency translation, partially offset by higher organic growth

Doug Pertz, president and chief executive officer, said:  "Second-quarter reported non-GAAP results were very strong, with 8% revenue growth and a 25% increase in operating profit driven by significant improvement in the U.S., Mexico and throughout South America, which more than offset $16 million of negative currency translation.  Excluding the impact of foreign exchange, constant currency revenue and operating profit rose 13% and 52%, respectively.  On an organic basis, which excludes both currency translation and acquisitions, operating profit rose 38%.  These results clearly demonstrate strong operating leverage from internal improvement initiatives and acquisitions, which enabled our profit momentum to continue irrespective of currency rate movements.  Reported non-GAAP earnings per share rose 12% for the second consecutive quarter.  As in the first quarter, earnings were affected by a higher tax rate and higher net interest costs, two negative factors that should be substantially mitigated in 2019 after the Dunbar acquisition is completed.  As a result, future earnings should be more consistent with growth in operating income."

The negative currency impact is related primarily to the company's South America segment, where the Argentine peso declined 32% and the Brazilian real declined 11% versus last year's second quarter.  Despite these currency declines, South America operating profit increased 27% on revenue growth of 14%.  North America operating profit increased 55% on 4% revenue growth.  Profits in the company's Rest of World segment were relatively flat.  See pages 4-5 for more information on second-quarter and full-year segment results, including the impact of currency translation and acquisitions.

Pertz added:  "On a constant currency basis, our year-to-date non-GAAP operating profit increased 47%, reflecting continued organic growth and margin expansion that would have put us on track to exceed our prior non-GAAP operating profit guidance range of $365 million to $385 million by approximately $20 million.

However, our new full-year 2018 non-GAAP operating profit range is between $340 million and $360 million.  This assumes a negative currency impact of $59 million versus prior year (at July 23 rates) and an additional $5 million impact related to the delayed closing of Rodoban, partly offset by higher organic growth and margin expansion.  At the mid-point, this revised 2018 guidance represents a 25% increase over 2017.  Our revised 2018 non-GAAP guidance also includes organic revenue growth of 7%, adjusted EBITDA between $490 million and $510 million, and EPS of $3.35 to $3.55 per share.

"Our 2019 adjusted EBITDA target of $685 million, as disclosed on May 31, will be updated when we have more information on the impact of currency fluctuations, operational performance and the timing of acquisitions."

Deconsolidation of Venezuela Operations
Effective June 30, Brink's deconsolidated its Venezuela operations for accounting purposes, resulting in a one-time, non-cash charge of $127 million ($2.47 per share) against second-quarter GAAP earnings.  Ongoing economic turmoil and currency restrictions in Venezuela have resulted in a lack of operational control as defined by U.S. GAAP.  The deconsolidation will not affect the company's future non-GAAP financial results, its loan covenants or its ongoing operations.  Pertz said: "Our management team and employees in Venezuela continue to perform admirably in an extremely challenging environment.  If and when the political and economic environment shows material improvement, enabling Brink's to regain control as defined by GAAP, we will reconsolidate our Venezuela operations."

Brink's will host a conference call on July 25 at 8:30 a.m. ET to review second-quarter results.  Interested parties can listen by calling 888-349-0094 (in the U.S.) or 412-902-0124 (international).

Amounts may not add due to rounding

  1. The 2017 Non-GAAP amounts are reconciled to the corresponding GAAP items on pages 10-13.  The 2018 Non-GAAP outlook amounts exclude the year-to-date June 2018 Non-GAAP adjusting items applicable to each category. In addition, we have excluded certain other forecasted Non-GAAP adjusting items for the second half of the year, such as intangible asset amortization and U.S. retirement plan costs. We have not forecasted the impact of highly inflationary accounting on our Argentina operations in the second half of 2018 or other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items for which the timing and amounts are currently under review, such as future restructuring actions. The 2018 Non-GAAP outlook amounts for operating profit, nonoperating expense, provision for income taxes, income from continuing operations, EPS from continuing operations, effective income tax rate and Adjusted EBITDA cannot be reconciled to GAAP without unreasonable effort. We cannot reconcile these amounts to GAAP because we are unable to accurately forecast the impact of highly inflationary accounting on our Argentina operations in the second half of 2018 or other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items for which the timing and amounts are currently under review, such as future restructuring actions.
  2. The 2018 GAAP outlook excludes any forecasted impact from highly inflationary accounting on our Argentina operations in the second half of 2018 as well as other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items for which the timing and amounts are currently under review, such as future restructuring actions.
  3. Non-GAAP amounts include the impact of prior year comparable period results for acquired and disposed businesses. GAAP results also include the impact of acquisition-related intangible amortization, restructuring and other charges, and disposition related gains/losses.

Other Items Not Allocated To Segments (Unaudited)                                                     
(In millions)

Brink's measures its segment results before income and expenses for corporate activities and for certain other items. See below for a summary of the other items not allocated to segments.

Venezuela operations Prior to the deconsolidation of our Venezuelan subsidiaries effective June 30, 2018, we excluded from our segment results all of our Venezuela operating results, due to the Venezuelan government's restrictions that have prevented us from repatriating funds.  As a result, the Chief Executive Officer, the Company's Chief Operating Decision maker ("CODM"), has assessed segment performance and has made resource decisions by segment excluding Venezuela operating results.

Reorganization and Restructuring
2016 Restructuring
In the fourth quarter of 2016, management implemented restructuring actions across our global business operations and our corporate functions.  As a result of these actions, we recognized $18.1 million in related 2016 costs, an additional $17.3 million in 2017 and $6 million in the first six months of 2018.  We expect to incur additional costs between $2 and $4 million in future periods, primarily severance costs.

Other Restructurings
Management routinely implements restructuring actions in targeted sections of our business.  As a result of these actions, we recognized $2.2 million in the first six months of 2018, primarily severance costs.  For the current restructuring actions, we expect to incur additional costs between $2 and $4 million in future periods.

Due to the unique circumstances around these charges, these management-directed items have not been allocated to segment results and are excluded from non-GAAP results.

Acquisitions and dispositions Certain acquisition and disposition items that are not considered part of the ongoing activities of the business and are special in nature are consistently excluded from non-GAAP results. These items are described below:

2018 Acquisitions and Dispositions

  • Amortization expense for acquisition-related intangible assets was $7.2 million in the first six months of 2018.
  • Severance costs related to our 2017 acquisitions in Argentina, France and Brazil were $3.3 million in the first six months of 2018.
  • Transaction costs related to business acquisitions were $2.1 million in the first six months of 2018.

2017 Acquisitions and Dispositions

  • Amortization expense for acquisition-related intangible assets was $8.4 million in 2017.
  • Fourth quarter 2017 gain of $7.8 million related to the sale of real estate in Mexico.
  • Severance costs of $4.0 million related to our recent acquisitions in Argentina and Brazil.
  • Transaction costs of $2.6 million related to acquisitions of new businesses in 2017.
  • Currency transaction gains of $1.8 million related to acquisition activity.

Reporting compliance Certain third party costs incurred related to the mitigation of material weaknesses ($0.5 million in the second quarter of 2018) and the implementation and adoption of ASU 2016-02, the new lease accounting standard effective for us January 1, 2019 ($0.9 million in the second quarter of 2018), are excluded from non-GAAP results.

Non-GAAP Results Reconciled to GAAP (Unaudited)
(In millions, except for percentages and per share amounts)

Non-GAAP results described in this press release are financial measures that are not required by or presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP").  The purpose of the Non-GAAP results is to report financial information from the primary operations of our business by excluding the effects of certain income and expenses that do not reflect the ordinary earnings of our operations.  The specific items excluded have not been allocated to segments, are described on page 9 and in more detail in our Form 10-Q, and are reconciled to comparable GAAP measures below.

Non-GAAP results adjust the quarterly Non-GAAP tax rates so that the Non-GAAP tax rate in each of the quarters is equal to the full-year estimated Non-GAAP tax rate.  The full-year Non-GAAP tax rate in both years excludes certain pretax and income tax amounts.  Amounts reported for prior periods have been updated in this report to present information consistently for all periods presented.

The 2018 Non-GAAP outlook amounts exclude the year-to-date June 2018 Non-GAAP adjusting items applicable to each category. In addition, we have excluded certain other forecasted Non-GAAP adjusting items for the second half of the year, such as intangible asset amortization and U.S. retirement plan costs. We have not forecasted the impact of highly inflationary accounting on our Argentina operations in the second half of 2018 or other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items for which the timing and amounts are currently under review, such as future restructuring actions.  The 2018 Non-GAAP outlook amounts for operating profit, nonoperating expense, provision for income taxes, income from continuing operations, EPS from continuing operations, effective income tax rate and Adjusted EBITDA cannot be reconciled to GAAP without unreasonable effort. We cannot reconcile these amounts to GAAP because we are unable to accurately forecast the impact of highly inflationary accounting on our Argentina operations in the second half of 2018 or other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items for which the timing and amounts are currently under review, such as future restructuring actions. The impact of highly inflationary accounting and other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items could be significant to our GAAP results.

The Non-GAAP financial measures are intended to provide investors with a supplemental comparison of our operating results and trends for the periods presented. Our management believes these measures are also useful to investors as such measures allow investors to evaluate our performance using the same metrics that our management uses to evaluate past performance and prospects for future performance.  We do not consider these items to be reflective of our core operating performance due to the variability of such items from period-to-period in terms of size, nature and significance.  Additionally, Non-GAAP results are utilized as performance measures in certain management incentive compensation plans.

Amounts may not add due to rounding.

  1. See "Other Items Not Allocated To Segments" on pages 8-9 for details.  We do not consider these items to be reflective of our core operating performance due to the variability of such items from period-to-period in terms of size, nature and significance.
  2. Non-GAAP income from continuing operations and non-GAAP EPS have been adjusted to reflect an effective income tax rate in each interim period equal to the full-year non-GAAP effective income tax rate. The full-year non-GAAP effective tax rate is estimated at 37.0% for 2018 and was 34.2% for 2017.
  3. Our U.S. retirement plans are frozen and costs related to these plans are excluded from non-GAAP results. Certain non-U.S. operations also have retirement plans. Settlement charges related to these non-U.S. plans are also excluded from non-GAAP results.
  4. Penalties upon prepayment of Private Placement notes in September 2017 and a term loan in October 2017.
  5. Related to an unfavorable court ruling in the third quarter of 2017 on a non-income tax claim in Brazil. The court ruled that Brink's must pay interest accruing from the initial claim filing in 1994 to the current date. The principal amount of the claim was approximately $1 million and was recognized in selling, general and administrative expenses in the third quarter of 2017.
  6. Represents the estimated impact of tax legislation enacted into law in the fourth quarter of 2017.  This primarily relates to the U.S. Tax Reform expense from the remeasurement of our net deferred tax assets.
  7. The non-GAAP tax rate excludes the 2018 and 2017 foreign tax benefits that resulted from the transaction that accelerated U.S. tax in 2015.
  8. Effective June 30, 2018, we deconsolidated our investment in Venezuelan subsidiaries and recognized a pretax charge of $126.7 million.
  9. There is no difference between GAAP and non-GAAP share-based compensation amounts for the periods presented.
  10. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as non-GAAP income from continuing operations excluding the impact of non-GAAP interest expense, non-GAAP income tax provision, non-GAAP depreciation and amortization and non-GAAP share-based compensation.
  11. Because we reported a loss from continuing operations on a GAAP basis in the fourth quarter of 2017 and second quarter of 2017, GAAP EPS was calculated using basic shares. However, as we reported income from continuing operations on a non-GAAP basis in the fourth quarter of 2017 and second quarter of 2017, non-GAAP EPS was calculated using diluted shares.
