For the fiscal 2018 fourth quarter:

  • Fiscal fourth quarter net sales were $502 million, an increase of $28 million or 5.8% from $474 million for the prior year. Continued high growth in commercial turf and lawn care, commercial job site, commercial engines and generators was offset by year-over-year softness in residential lawn and garden sales.
  • Quarterly GAAP gross profit margin of 21.6% and adjusted gross profit margin of 22.0% increased from gross profit margin of 21.3% last year driven by favorable sales mix due to higher sales of commercial offerings. Manufacturing efficiency improvements and higher pricing offset material and freight cost increases.
  • Fourth quarter GAAP net loss of $11.8 million included business optimization charges, pension settlement charges, senior note repurchase premiums, and the impact of implementing tax reform. Excluding these items, adjusted net income was $20.1 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, which was slightly higher than $0.46 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017.

For the fiscal 2018 full year:

  • Fiscal 2018 net sales were $1.88 billion, up $95.2 million or 5.3% from $1.79 billion for fiscal 2017. The company set a new record for sales of commercial products, amounting to $505 million, an increase of 16% compared to last year.
  • Full year GAAP gross profit margin of 21.2% was down from 21.5% for fiscal 2017. Adjusted gross profit margin of 21.5% was comparable with last year. Products adjusted segment operating margins of 3.3% improved by 170 basis points from last year.
  • Full year GAAP net loss of $11.3 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, included business optimization charges, pension settlement charges, senior note repurchase premiums, and the impact of implementing tax reform. Excluding these items, adjusted net income was $55.8 million, or $1.29 per diluted share.

Capital allocation update:

  • Capital expenditures of $103 million were elevated from prior years to fund the business optimization program.
  • The company paid $24.0 million in cash dividends to shareholders during fiscal 2018.
  • The company repurchased $10.3 million of common stock under the company's share repurchase program during fiscal 2018.
  • The capital structure was strengthened by making a $30 million voluntary pension plan contribution and repurchasing approximately $22.3 million of the company's high yield senior notes.

"Ongoing robust shipments of commercial products sustained growth for the quarter and year, and demonstrated the effectiveness of our diversification strategy," stated Todd J. Teske, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are very pleased with the growth in commercial job site products, supported by new customers and channels. Placement of our Vanguard commercial engines powering more applications remains solidly on track. Shipments of Ferris commercial mowers finished the quarter on an upward trend, as weather conditions improved. This growth offset weakness in residential sales, which resulted from a severely delayed mowing season from a prolonged wet and cold spring across much of North America, compounded by inventory reductions among mass retailers in Europe and the U.S. being taken in anticipation of brand transitions.  While these issues presented a challenge to achieving our planned sales this season, we are confident in our ability to maintain our market-leading placement in residential engines next season, based on discussions with channel partners. There has been good progress to date with line reviews as consumers continue to recognize the Briggs & Stratton brand for its innovation and reliability. We are well positioned to benefit from recovery to a more normalized environment."

Teske added, "I am pleased with the progress made in fiscal 2018 to position the company for improving performance. In addition to the contributions from the acquisition of assets of Ground Logic and recently Hurricane Power, we are on track with our business optimization initiatives to deliver $30-$35 million in annual profit improvement by 2021. We enter fiscal 2019 ramping up production in our new Ferris mower facility, which provides needed capacity and greater manufacturing efficiency. In addition, we will be increasing domestic production of Vanguard commercial engines, with the on-shoring of engines from overseas and strong customer demand for our expanded line of horizontal-shaft engines. Our upgraded ERP system successfully went live at the beginning of July, and we expect to begin accruing the benefits from a more streamlined platform. Taken together, we continue to expect to drive growth, efficiency and innovation as more people depend on Briggs & Stratton for power to get the job done."

Fiscal 2019 Outlook:

  • Net sales are expected to be in a range of $1.93 billion to $1.99 billion for growth of approximately 2.5% to 5.8% (5.5% to 9.0% growth excluding storm-related sales of approximately $55 million for fiscal 2018)
    • Markets for commercial products are expected to grow mid-single digits and we anticipate continued market share gains in the categories of commercial job site, commercial engines and commercial turf and lawn care, in addition to the benefit of the recent asset acquisitions.
    • Residential sales, excluding fiscal 2018 storm volume, are expected to grow approximately 3% to 5%, which includes market improvement on more normal spring weather andsome normalization of channel inventory levels in the U.S. and Europe.
    • We expect to hold our market-leading residential engine placement for the upcoming lawn and garden season.
  • Net income is expected to be in a range of $58 million to $66 million, or $1.35 to $1.55 per diluted share, prior to the impact of costs related to our business optimization program, acquisition costs or the benefit of any share repurchases. This contemplates year-over-year midpoint growth of approximately 11%.
  • Operating margins before business optimization costs and acquisition costs are expected to be approximately 5.3% to 5.5%. Compared to fiscal 2018, operating margins are expected to improve due to favorable sales mix from growth of commercial products and business optimization program savings of $6 million to $8 million. Higher material and freight costs are expected to be offset by pricing, efficiency improvements and product cost improvements.
  • Interest expense is expected to be approximately $24.5 million and other income to be approximately $1 million, which includes approximately $2 million of pension expense that would have previously been reported in operating income.
  • Tax rate before business optimization costs and acquisition costs are expected to be in a range of 24% to 26%, which includes the benefit of a full fiscal year under tax reform.
  • The company anticipates capital expenditures to be approximately $65 million.
  • Pre-tax charges associated with the business optimization program are expected to be approximately $27 million to $32 million in fiscal 2019. Total program cost estimate remains unchanged at $50 million to $55 million.

Fourth Quarter Highlights

  • Engine sales unit volumes decreased by 17%, or approximately 325,000 engines, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to the same period last year. Sales were lower due to certain channel partners decreasing their orders due to a delayed start of spring weather and to further reduce channel inventory in advance of anticipated brand transitions next season. Sales into Europe were also lower due to a delayed start of spring weather and certain channel partners reducing orders to lower channel inventory levels in advance of new emissions requirements applicable to engines beginning in calendar 2019. Partially offsetting the decrease were higher sales of Vanguard commercial engines and service parts as well as higher pricing year-over-year.
  • GAAP gross profit percentage compared to last year increased 90 basis points and adjusted gross profit margins were higher by 120 basis points due to favorable sales mix, including a higher proportion of commercial engine sales and service parts. Manufacturing efficiencies and higher pricing offset a 16% decrease in manufacturing volume and higher material and freight costs.
  • GAAP engineering, selling, general and administrative (ESG&A) compared to last year increased by $51.0 million primarily due to the $41.2 million non-cash fourth quarter pension settlement charge. Adjusted ESG&A increased $5.5 million compared to last year primarily due to the timing of incentive compensation expense, higher marketing costs and the investment in our ERP system upgrade.

Fiscal Year Summary

  • Net sales decreased by $32.5 million or 3.0% primarily due to declines in residential engine sales in North America and Europe due to the unusual spring weather and reductions in channel inventory. Partially offsetting the decrease were higher sales of Vanguard commercial engines and higher pricing. GAAP gross profit percentage decreased by 10 basis points. Adjusted gross profit percentage increased by 20 basis points compared to last year due to manufacturing efficiency improvements. The improvement in gross margins was offset by 8% lower production volumes. Efficiency gains and higher pricing offset material and freight cost increases. ESG&A costs increased $62.7 million. Adjusted ESG&A increased by $14.6 million, primarily due to $3 million of higher spending related to our ERP upgrade, higher marketing costs, and funding growth initiatives.

Fourth Quarter Highlights

  • Net sales increased by $46.8 million, primarily due to higher sales of commercial mowers and job site products as well as higher sales of generators and pressure washers.
  • The gross profit percentage increased by 90 basis points compared to last year. The adjusted gross profit percentage increased 140 basis points compared to last year primarily due to favorable sales mix on proportionately higher sales of commercial products and the benefit of a 5.5% increase in production throughput. Higher pricing offset higher material costs. Higher freight costs offset a portion of the margin improvement.
  • GAAP ESG&A increased by $4.5 million compared to last year and adjusted ESG&A increased by $2.9 million due to higher commissions expense on increased sales volume and higher costs associated with investments to upgrade our ERP system and growing commercial offerings.

Fiscal Year Summary

  • Net sales increased by $125.6 million or 16%, primarily due to higher sales of commercial lawn and garden and job site equipment and generators. The active storm season this past year resulted in approximately $55 million of storm generator sales, or an increase of $40 million from storm sales in fiscal 2017. Gross profit percentage increased by 40 basis points compared to last year. Adjusted gross profit percentage improved by 80 basis points year over year due to the contribution margin from hurricane-related sales, favorable sales mix from proportionately higher sales of commercial products and higher pricing. The margin improvement was partially offset by a reduction in manufacturing throughput of approximately 3.5% and higher freight costs.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Briggs & Stratton Corporation prepares its financial statements using Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). When a company discloses material information containing non-GAAP financial measures, SEC regulations require that the disclosure include a presentation of the most directly comparable GAAP measure and a reconciliation of the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures. Management's inclusion of non-GAAP financial measures in this release is intended to supplement, not replace, the presentation of the financial results in accordance with GAAP. Briggs & Stratton Corporation management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP financial measures, provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may, or could, have a disproportionately positive or negative impact on results in any particular period. Management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enhance the ability of investors to analyze the company's business trends and to understand the company's performance. In addition, management may utilize non-GAAP financial measures as a guide in the company's forecasting, budgeting and long-term planning process. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP. The following tables are reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures:
