Sixth Consecutive Quarter of Adjusted EBITDA Margin Expansion
Announces Seating Plant Consolidation
Reaffirms Full Year Guidance

MILWAUKEE, Aug. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jason Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:JASN, JASNW)) ("Jason" or the "Company") today reported results for second quarter 2018.

Key financial results for the second quarter 2018 versus the year ago period include:

  • Net sales of $168.4 million decreased 2.3 percent and included a negative 3.5 percent impact from the divestiture and planned exit of non-core businesses and a positive 1.5 percent from foreign currency translation.
  • Operating income of $6.8 million, or 4.0 percent of net sales, decreased from 5.7 percent of net sales on higher selling and administrative expenses and restructuring costs.
  • Net loss of $0.6 million, or $0.05 diluted loss per share, decreased $4.2 million and $0.17 per share.
  • Free cash flow was $4.0 million, a decrease of $10.2 million, due to timing of working capital requirements and higher cash restructuring.

On an adjusted basis, second quarter 2018 results versus the year ago period include:

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $21.4 million, or 12.7 percent of net sales, increased $0.8 million and improved from 11.9 percent of net sales, driven by margin expansion from pricing and operational efficiencies.
  • Adjusted Net Income of $1.5 million, or $0.05 Adjusted Earnings Per Share, decreased $0.01 per share.

"Finishing organic growth of 7.0 percent exceeded our expectations and demonstrates the traction we are gaining through our targeted commercial activities," said Brian Kobylinski, chief executive officer of Jason. "We delivered 130 basis points of gross margin improvement through operational efficiency initiatives, marking our sixth consecutive quarter of improvement.  Our efforts resulted in a further reduction in net leverage which now sits at 5.2 times."

Highlights during the quarter include:

  • Total Cost Reduction and Margin Expansion program savings were $0.5 million in the second quarter with a total of $21 million since the inception of the program.  Actions taken and announced to-date are expected to achieve $24 million in annual run-rate cost savings.
     
  • Achieved organic growth of 7.0 percent in Finishing and 4.3 percent in Components.  Organic growth was generated through targeted growth initiatives including diversification efforts in both customers and markets, and continued strength in industrial markets.
     
  • Announced the closure of the Seating facility in Nuneaton, United Kingdom by the end of 2018.  This action simplifies operations by consolidating manufacturing into existing facilities, reduces footprint, and monetizes an underutilized asset.  The closure will result in annual savings of $0.1 million beginning in the first quarter of 2019.  Jason expects proceeds of $1.8 million from the sale of the facility and to incur a pre-tax restructuring charge to earnings of approximately $0.7 million in 2018.
     
  • Completed Components' portfolio review and actioned the exit of low margin, non-core smart meter product lines by the end of the third quarter.  This exit simplifies operations and redeploys resources to focus on growing core perforated and expanded metal products.

Key financial results within the segments for the second quarter 2018 versus the year ago period include:

  • Finishing net sales of $55.5 million increased $5.7 million, or 11.4 percent, including a positive foreign currency translation impact of 4.4 percent.  Organic sales increased 7.0 percent and were impacted by traction in commercial initiatives and strong industrial markets.  Adjusted EBITDA was $8.4 million, or 15.2 percent of net sales, an increase of $1.1 million from 14.7 percent of net sales. Adjusted EBITDA margin increased on favorable sales mix, improved pricing and higher volumes, while making investments in commercial talent and resources.
     
  • Components net sales of $24.6 million increased $2.8 million, or 13.1 percent.  Organic sales increased 4.3 percent due to pricing and higher volumes in rail, perforated and expanded metal products.  Organic sales now exclude non-core smart meter product lines, which increased 8.8 percent in preparation for the planned exit of production.  Adjusted EBITDA was $3.6 million, or 14.5 percent of net sales, an increase of $1.1 million from 11.3 percent of net sales, with margins positively impacted by higher volumes, increased pricing, and savings from facility consolidation.

  • Seating net sales of $45.0 million increased $0.1 million, or 0.2 percent, including a positive foreign currency translation impact of 0.5 percent.  Organic sales decreased 0.3 percent on lower volumes in both the motorcycle and turf care markets.  Turf care was impacted by a shortened selling season resulting from the delayed spring as well as deferred implementation of pricing actions due to a supplier force majeure event.  These declines were largely offset by heavy industry platform growth and improved pricing.  Adjusted EBITDA was $6.9 million, or 15.3 percent of net sales, an increase of $1.0 million from 13.1 percent of net sales, with margins positively impacted by continuous improvement initiatives and pricing.
     
  • Acoustics net sales of $43.4 million decreased $12.7 million, or 22.6 percent, including a negative 14.3 percent impact from the divestiture of the Acoustics European operations. Organic sales decreased 8.3 percent due to end-of-life platform changes and a continuing shift from cars to light truck vehicles. Adjusted EBITDA was $6.0 million, or 13.9 percent of net sales, compared with 14.2 percent of net sales in the prior year.  Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased on lower sales volumes, pricing changes and raw material inflation, which were mitigated by improved material efficiencies and continuous improvement projects.
     
  • Corporate expenses of $3.6 million increased $0.5 million primarily on timing of incentive compensation expense compared with the prior year.

Other Information:

  • Net debt to Adjusted EBITDA on a trailing twelve-month basis was 5.2x as of the end of the second quarter, a decrease from 5.5x as of the end of 2017. Total liquidity as of the end of the second quarter was $86.8 million, comprised of $46.2 million of cash and cash equivalents and $40.6 million of availability on revolving loan facilities globally.
     
  • In the second quarter the company completed the amendment of the First Lien Credit Agreement to extend the maturity of its undrawn revolving credit facility.  The total revolving loan commitments will be $34.3 million until June 2019 and $30.0 million until June 2020.  Prior to the amendment, the revolving credit facility was scheduled to mature in June 2019.
     
  • In connection with the planned exit of non-core smart meter product lines in Components, amortization of certain intangible assets was accelerated, resulting in increased amortization expense of $1.2 million in the three months ended June 29, 2018.

2018 Guidance:

Kobylinski stated, "We continued our streak of growing the core, expanding margins, and reducing leverage.  Our investments in commercial activity are beginning to pay dividends and we initiated our next round of self-help actions.  While we are managing in a dynamic external environment, improvements made to our organization position us to deliver our 2018 guidance."

For the full year 2018, Jason reaffirms guidance of net sales in the range of $600 to $615 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $66 to $70 million, and free cash flow of $13 to $17 million, resulting in an implied net debt to Adjusted EBITDA range of 5.3 to 4.9 times.

Non-GAAP and Other Company Information
Included in this press release are certain non-GAAP financial measures designed to complement the financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America because management believes such measures are useful to investors. Because the Company's calculations of these measures may differ from similar measures used by other companies, you should be careful when comparing the Company's non-GAAP financial measures to those of other companies. In this earnings release, we disclose the following non-GAAP financial measures, and we reconcile these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures: EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings Per Share, Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA, and Free Cash Flow.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin - The Company defines EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation and amortization. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA, excluding the impact of operational restructuring charges and non-cash or non-operational losses or gains, including goodwill and long-lived asset impairment charges, gains or losses on disposal of property, plant and equipment, integration and other operational restructuring charges, transactional legal fees, other professional fees, purchase accounting adjustments, and non-cash share based compensation expense. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA Margin as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net sales.

Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides a more clear picture of the Company's operating results by eliminating expenses and income that are not reflective of the underlying business performance. The Company uses this metric to facilitate a comparison of operating performance on a consistent basis from period to period and to analyze the factors and trends affecting its segments. The Company's internal plans, budgets and forecasts use Adjusted EBITDA as a key metric and the Company uses this measure to evaluate its operating performance and segment operating performance and to determine the level of incentive compensation paid to its employees.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share - The Company defines Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share (calculated on a diluted basis) as net income and earnings per share (as defined by GAAP), excluding the impact of operational restructuring charges and non-cash or non-operational losses or gains, including goodwill and long-lived asset impairment charges, gains or losses on disposal of property, plant and equipment, integration and other operational restructuring charges, transactional legal fees, other professional fees, purchase accounting adjustments, and non-cash share based compensation expense, net of their income tax impact. The tax rates used to calculate adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share are based on a transaction specific basis. Adjusted earnings per share includes the impact of share based compensation to the extent it is dilutive in each period. Adjusted earnings per share includes the impact to Jason Industries common shares upon conversion of JPHI Holdings Inc. rollover shares and conversion of preferred stock. Management believes that Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share are useful in assessing the Company's financial performance by eliminating expenses and income that are not reflective of the underlying business performance.

Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA - The Company defines Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA as current and long-term debt plus debt discounts less cash and cash equivalents, divided by pro forma Adjusted EBITDA for the trailing twelve months.  Pro forma Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as Adjusted EBITDA as reported plus Adjusted EBITDA of acquisitions prior to the date of the acquisition during the trailing twelve months. Management believes that Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA is useful in assessing the Company's financial leverage.

Free Cash Flow - The Company defines Free Cash Flow as net cash flows from operating activities (as defined by GAAP) less capital expenditures and cash dividends on preferred stock.  Management believes that Free Cash Flow is useful in assessing our ability to generate cash from business operations that is available for strategic capital decisions.

In addition to these non-GAAP financial measures, we also use the term "organic sales" to refer to GAAP net sales from existing operations excluding (i) sales from acquired businesses recorded prior to the first anniversary of the acquisition, (ii) sales from divested businesses or exited non-core businesses, and (iii) the impact of foreign currency translation. The impact of foreign currency translation is calculated as the difference between (a) the period-to-period change in results (excluding acquisitions, divestitures, and exited non-core businesses) and (b) the period-to-period change in results (excluding acquisitions, divestitures, and exited non-core businesses) after applying current period average foreign exchange rates to the prior year period. We use the term "organic sales growth" to refer to the measure of comparing current period organic sales with the corresponding prior year period organic sales.
