NN, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2019 Results

Share:

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- NN, Inc., (NASDAQ:NNBR), a diversified industrial company, today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

GAAP Results

Second Quarter

Net sales for the second quarter of 2019 increased $25.3 million, or 12.9% to $221.7 million, compared to $196.3 million for the second quarter of 2018. Growth was driven by $19.5 million from acquisitions and organic volume increases of $7.6 million, which were partially offset by foreign currency, pricing and mix impacts of $1.7 million.

On a GAAP basis, income from operations for the second quarter of 2019 was $8.1 million, compared to operating losses of $0.3 million for the same period in 2018. The second quarter of 2018 included acquisition related costs of $3.4 million, restructuring and integration costs of $1.6 million and inventory step-up costs of $3.4 million related to the Paragon acquisition.  The reduction in these costs, along with margin improvement associated with the acquisition and organic growth noted above as well as synergy capture initiatives, was partially offset by increases in depreciation and amortization primarily related to 2018 acquisitions of $6.7 million.

Net loss on a GAAP basis for second quarter of 2019 was $6.7 million, compared to net loss on a GAAP basis of $24.5 million in the second quarter of 2018. The improvement was driven by a reduction in interest expense and write-off of debt issuance costs of $2.0 million and $12.9 million, respectively. Other income and expense improved $1.8 million primarily as a result of unfavorable foreign exchange effects associated with intercompany borrowings in 2018. These changes were partially offset by an unfavorable $6.5 million year over year increase in income tax expense.

On a GAAP basis, income from operations for second quarter 2019 in the Life Sciences segment was $9.3 million, compared to income from operations of $2.0 million for the same period in 2018.

On a GAAP basis, income from operations for second quarter 2019 in the Mobile Solutions segment was $4.1 million, compared to income from operations of $7.4 million for the same period in 2018.

On a GAAP basis, income from operations for second quarter 2019 in the Power Solutions segment was $5.7 million, compared to income from operations of $6.0 million for the same period in 2018.

Adjusted Results

Second Quarter

Adjusted income from operations for the second quarter of 2019 was $27.6 million, compared to $24.8 million for the same period in 2018. Adjusted net income was $10.4 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, compared to $10.5 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, for the same period in 2018. Adjusted income from operations growth was primarily driven by acquisitions, increased organic volume and overall cost reduction initiatives. Additionally, second quarter 2019 earnings per share was impacted by the issuance of 14.4 million shares in the third quarter of 2018.

Richard Holder, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Our second quarter performance was in line with our expectations as we continue to experience mixed economic dynamics across the portfolio. Looking at our end markets, we continue to see tailwinds within the medical device and aerospace and defense end markets. Our electrical and industrial markets remain stable while we anticipate headwinds within the global vehicle market to persist for the remainder of the year."

Life Sciences

Net sales for the second quarter of 2019 were $91.3 million, compared to $59.2 million in the second quarter of 2018, an increase of 54.4% or $32.2 million. Adjusted income from operations for the quarter was $20.4 million, compared to $12.9 million in the second quarter of 2018.

Mr. Holder commented, "Life Sciences continues to exceed our growth expectations for the year driven by significant outperformance within our orthopedic end market. Additionally, the business is flexing as anticipated, as operating profit is also ahead of our expectations."

Mobile Solutions

Net sales for the second quarter of 2019 were $79.4 million, compared to $88.1 million in the second quarter of 2018, a decrease of 9.8% or $8.6 million.  Adjusted income from operations for the quarter was $5.9 million, compared to $9.1 million in the second quarter of 2018.

Mr. Holder commented, "The Mobile Solutions team has performed well despite challenges in the global vehicle market. Looking forward to the second half, we expect these end market headwinds to continue and be partially offset by continued cost reductions within the segment."

Power Solutions

Net sales for the second quarter of 2019 were $51.4 million, compared to $49.8 million in the second quarter of 2018, an increase of 3.2% or $1.6 million. Adjusted income from operations for the quarter was $10.1 million, compared to $10.8 million in the second quarter of 2018.

Mr. Holder commented, "Our Power Solutions group performed as expected during the second quarter. As anticipated, our customer order patterns returned to normal midway through the second quarter."

The Company discloses in this presentation the non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted income from operations, adjusted net income (loss), and adjusted net income per diluted share.  Each of these non-GAAP financial measures provides supplementary information about the impacts of acquisition, divestiture and integration related expenses, foreign-exchange impacts on inter-company loans, reorganizational and impairment charges.  Over the past five years, we have completed seven acquisitions, two of which were transformative for the Company, and sold two of our businesses.  The costs we incurred in completing such acquisitions, including the amortization of intangibles and deferred financing costs, and these divestitures have been excluded from these measures because their size and inconsistent frequency are unrelated to our commercial performance during the period, and which we believe are not indicative of our ongoing operating costs. We exclude the impact of currency translation from these measures because foreign exchange rates are not under management's control and are subject to volatility. Other non-operating charges are excluded as the charges are not indicative of our ongoing operating cost. We believe the presentation of adjusted income from operations, adjusted net income (loss), and adjusted net income per diluted share provides useful information in assessing our underlying business trends and facilitates comparison of our long-term performance over given periods.

The non-GAAP financial measures provided herein may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in the Company's industry, as other companies may calculate such financial results differently. The Company's non-GAAP financial measures are not measurements of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to actual income growth derived from income amounts presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company does not consider these non-GAAP financial measures to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial results.

(a) Non-GAAP Adjusted income from operations represents GAAP income from operations, adjusted to exclude the effects of restructuring and integration expense; non-operational charges related to acquisition and transition expense, intangible amortization costs for fair value step-up in values related to acquisitions, non-cash impairment charges, and when applicable, our share of income from joint venture operations. We believe this presentation is commonly used by investors and professional research analysts in the valuation, comparison, rating and investment recommendations of companies in the industrial industry. We use this information for comparative purposes within the industry. Non-GAAP adjusted income from operations is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a measure of liquidity or as an alternative to GAAP income from operations.

(b) This line item reflects the aggregate tax effect of all nontax adjustments reflected in the respective table. NN, Inc. estimates the tax effect of the adjustment items identified in the reconciliation schedule above by applying the applicable statutory rates by tax jurisdiction unless the nature of the item and/or the tax jurisdiction in which the item has been recorded requires application of a specific tax rate or tax treatment.

(c) Non-GAAP adjusted net income (loss) represents GAAP  net income (loss) adjusted to exclude the tax-affected effects of restructuring and integration charges (related to plant closures and other charges incurred to implement our strategic goals that do not necessarily represent a major strategic shift in operations), charges related to acquisition and transition costs,  amortization of intangibles costs for fair value step-up in values related to acquisitions and amortization of deferred financing costs,  foreign exchange gain (loss) on inter-company loans, estimated interest expense on cash held from divestiture, non-cash impairment charges, the impact of enactment of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act and income from discontinued operations. We believe this presentation is commonly used by investors and professional research analysts in the valuation, comparison, rating and investment recommendations of companies in the industrial industry. We use this information for comparative purposes within the industry. Non-GAAP adjusted income (loss) from segment operations is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a measure of liquidity or as an alternative to GAAP income (loss) from continuing operations.
