PR Newswire

CHICAGO, July 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- JBT Corporation (NYSE:JBT), a leading global technology solutions provider to high-value segments of the food & beverage industry, today reported results for the second quarter of 2018.

"JBT posted better than expected revenue growth and margin expansion as well as record orders in the second quarter, putting us on track to deliver double-digit growth in revenue and adjusted earnings for full-year 2018," said Tom Giacomini, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Second quarter 2018 revenue increased 27 percent from the second quarter of 2017, including growth of 14 percent organically and 4 percent from acquisitions, a 1 percent foreign exchange benefit, and an 8 percent benefit from the new revenue recognition standard, ASC 606, adopted January 1, 2018.  

Second quarter 2018 operating income of $42.2 million – which included a restructuring expense of $8.5 million – increased 44 percent from the year-ago period. Total segment operating profit of $62.1 million increased 48 percent, including 18 percent from ASC 606. Segment operating profit margins expanded 170 basis points year over year and 540 basis points sequentially.   

Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations was $1.04 for the second quarter of 2018 compared to $0.57 for the second quarter of 2017. Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations was $1.24 for the second quarter of 2018 excluding the restructuring expense. Second quarter 2018 results included a $0.17 per share benefit from ASC 606 and a $0.15 per share discrete tax benefit associated with accounting rules for stock compensation costs.

Orders and Backlog

For the second quarter of 2018, inbound orders of $530 million increased 27 percent, with record levels at both FoodTech and AeroTech. Backlog expanded 15 percent.

Restructuring

In the second quarter of 2018, JBT recorded a restructuring expense of $8.5 million, part of the previously announced $50 million improvement program to unlock the benefits of the Company's expanded global scale.  

Acquisitions

On July 12, JBT announced the acquisition of FTNON, a leading provider of equipment and solutions for the fresh produce, ready meals, and pet food markets. "We are pleased to add additional, complementary capabilities to JBT's customer relationships," stated Giacomini. "Moreover, FTNON provides entry into the fast-growing market for ready-to-eat fresh produce and offers labor-saving robotic technology we plan to apply across the protein and liquid food segments of the food industry."

2018 Outlook 

For full-year 2018, JBT maintains projected diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $2.80 - $3.00, or $3.95 - $4.15 adjusted for restructuring charges, while absorbing the $0.07 per share dilutive impact from the acquisition of FTNON. 

For the third quarter of 2018, the Company expects similar results to the second quarter, absent the discrete tax benefit.

In addition, this information is used as a basis for evaluating our performance and for the planning and forecasting of future periods.

The above table provides net income as adjusted by income taxes, net interest expense and depreciation and amortization expense recorded during the period to arrive at EBITDA. Further, we add back to EBITDA significant expenses that are not indicative of our ongoing operations to calculate an Adjusted EBITDA for the periods reported. Given the Company's focus on growth through strategic acquisitions, management considers Adjusted EBITDA to be an important non-GAAP financial measure. This measure allows us to monitor business performance while excluding the impact of amortization due to the step up in value of intangible assets, and the depreciation of fixed assets. We use Adjusted EBITDA internally to make operating decisions and believe this information is helpful to investors because it allows more meaningful period-to-period comparisons of our ongoing operating results.  This information is not intended to nor should it be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

(1) Restructuring expense is estimated to be approximately $50.0 million for full year of 2018. We have used the mid-point of the full year estimate in the table above.  These amounts have been divided by our estimate of 32.2 million total shares and dilutive securities to derive the earnings per share value.




(2) Impact on tax provision was calculated using the Company's expected tax rate to be incurred on these restructuring costs of 26.0%.

(1) Segment operating profit is defined as total segment revenue less segment operating expenses.  Corporate expense, restructuring expense, interest income and expense and income taxes are not allocated to the segments.  Corporate expense generally includes corporate staff-related expense, stock-based compensation, LIFO adjustments, certain foreign currency-related gains and losses, and the impact of unusual or strategic events not representative of segment operations.

 

(2) Total segment operating profit, as presented elsewhere in this release, is a non-GAAP measure.  The table above includes a reconciliation of total segment operating profit to operating income.  We believe that this measure provides to investors a more comprehensive understanding of the information used by management in evaluating the performance of its segment operations.  It is not intended to nor shall be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
