Gates Industrial Corporation plc (NYSE:GTES), a leading global provider of application-specific fluid power and power transmission solutions, today reported results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Ivo Jurek, Gates Industrial's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Our solid execution provided another quarter of record results, as we observed top line growth driven by strong demand across our industrial end markets globally, coupled with significant strength in emerging markets, notably China.  In addition to sales growth, our manufacturing performance also contributed to our record quarterly Adjusted EBITDA.  We have exciting opportunities across both our Power Transmission and Fluid Power segments, and have continued to invest in our growth initiatives.  We are pleased with the progress the global Gates team has achieved to date and have increased our full-year expectations for both net sales growth and Adjusted EBITDA."

Jurek added, "We are excited by what we believe are significant growth opportunities within our core markets.  We remain committed to executing our growth strategies to capitalize on these opportunities, while continuing to deleverage the business."

Second-Quarter Financial Results

Second-quarter net sales of $875.1 million increased 13.8% over the prior-year quarter net sales of $769.1 million, including 6.7% core revenue growth, which includes increased volumes across both segments as the Company continued to experience strong demand in industrial end markets.  Regionally, emerging markets contributed to the strong growth rate, particularly China.  Net sales in the quarter also benefited 4.9% from our recent acquisitions and 2.1% from foreign currency effects.

Net income attributable to shareholders in the second quarter was $85.6 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared to $0.5 million, or $0.00 per diluted share, in the prior year period.  Adjusted Net Income, which primarily excludes amortization of certain intangibles, transaction-related expenses and foreign currency financing gains and losses, was $112.1 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, compared to $64.8 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, in the prior-year period.  The diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding in the second quarter of 2018 was 297,385,570 compared to 251,589,550 in the second quarter of 2017.

Second-quarter Adjusted EBITDA was $204.9 million, or 23.4% of sales, compared to $179.0 million, or 23.3% of sales in the prior-year quarter.  Excluding acquisitions, the impact of which was not in the prior-year quarter, Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded by approximately 60 basis points to 23.9% in the second quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA grew double-digits over the prior-year quarter, while Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded by 70 basis points, attributable to benefits from higher net sales and continued manufacturing productivity improvements.

Fluid Power net sales increased 26.0% to $325.5 million in the second quarter, which reflected core revenue growth of 10.1%, incremental net sales from recent acquisitions of 14.7% and favorable foreign currency effects of 1.2%.  Core revenue growth continued to be driven by strong demand in industrial end markets, particularly in mobile hydraulic applications.  The Company also saw significant strength in emerging markets during the quarter.

Excluding acquisitions, Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 50 basis points over the prior-year quarter and was favorably impacted by higher net sales and manufacturing productivity improvements.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

During the second quarter of 2018, the Company generated $120.4 million of cash from operations, driven by the strong Adjusted EBITDA performance, offset partially by net outflows from the normal seasonality in working capital.  Second-quarter capital expenditures were $53.7 million, the largest portion of which represented investment in new manufacturing capacity in the Fluid Power segment.

As of June 30, 2018, the Company had total cash of $305.2 million and total outstanding debt of $3.0 billion, representing an improved net leverage ratio of 3.7 times Adjusted EBITDA.

2018 Outlook

The Company is increasing its full-year outlook for both net sales growth and Adjusted EBITDA.  Total net sales growth is now expected to be in a range of 10.0% to 12.0%, the core revenue growth component of which is expected to be 6.0% to 7.0%. Adjusted EBITDA is now expected to be in the range of $745 million to $765 million, increased from the previous range of $738 million to $758 million.  Additionally, the Company now expects total capital expenditures to be approximately $180 million compared to the previous range of $150 million to $170 million, reflecting investment in certain additional organic initiatives.

Non-GAAP Financial Statements

This press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures, which management believes are useful to investors, securities analysts and other interested parties. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as its key profitability measure. This is a non-GAAP measure that represents EBITDA before certain items that impact comparison of the performance of our business either period-over-period or with other businesses. We use Adjusted EBITDA as our measure of segment profitability to assess the performance of our businesses and it is used for total Gates as well because we believe it is important to consider our profitability on a basis that is consistent with that of our operating segments.

Management uses Adjusted Net Income as an additional measure of profitability. Adjusted Net Income is a non-GAAP measure that represents net income attributable to shareholders before certain items that impact comparison of the performance of our business, either period-over-period or with other businesses.

Core revenue growth is a non-GAAP measure that represents net sales for the period excluding the impacts of movements in foreign currency rates and the first-year impacts of acquisitions and disposals. We present core revenue growth because it allows for a meaningful comparison of year-over-year performance without the volatility caused by foreign currency gains or losses, or the incomparability that would be caused by the impact of an acquisition or disposal.

Management uses Free Cash Flow to measure cash generation and liquidity. Free Cash Flow is a non-GAAP measure that represents cash provided by (used in) operations less capital expenditures. Free Cash Flow Conversion is a measure of Free Cash Flow for the preceding twelve months expressed as a percentage of Adjusted Net Income for the same period. We use this metric as a measure of the success of our business in converting Adjusted Net Income into cash.

These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered only as supplemental to, and not as superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Please see below for a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Because GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis are not accessible, and reconciling information is not available without unreasonable effort, we have not provided reconciliations for forward-looking non-GAAP measures.
