Share:

BRIDGEVIEW, IL / ACCESSWIRE / August 6, 2020 / Manitex International, Inc. (NASDAQ:MNTX), a leading international provider of cranes and specialized industrial equipment, today announced second quarter 2020 results. Net revenues from continuing operations for the second quarter were $37.1 million, compared to $57.4 million in the prior year's period, and net loss from continuing operations was $(2.4) million, or $(0.12) per share, compared to net income of $3.3 million or $0.17 per share, in the second quarter of 2019. Adjusted net loss* from continuing operations in the second quarter 2020 was $(1.7) million, or $(0.08) per share, compared to adjusted net income of $1.2 million, or $0.06 per share, for the second quarter of 2019.

Financial Highlights:

  • Net revenues of $37.1 million, declined 35.3% compared to Q2 2019
  • Loss per share of $(0.12) or $(0.08) as adjusted*
  • Adjusted EBITDA* $(0.3) million
  • Generated $4.6 million in cash in the quarter from operations
  • Achieved $1.2 million cost savings in SG&A in Q2 compared to prior year driven by cost reduction initiatives implemented in 2019 and 2020
  • Net debt of $34.4 million, a reduction of $7.6 million in Q2 2020
  • Available liquidity through cash and credit lines of approximately $46 million as of June 30, 2020

Note: Results shown are from Continuing Operations
* Adjusted Numbers are discussed in greater detail and reconciled under "Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Items" at the end of this release.

Operating Highlights:

  • Backlog which was $44 million as of June 30, 2020, declined 18% year over year
  • Continued softness in our North American straight-mast and industrial crane products
  • North American MAC knuckle boom sales have increased approximately 150% compared to last year's same quarter
  • PM backlog increased 15% year over year and now 50% of total backlog
  • 7 new dealers for PM, MAC and/or Oil &Steel: France, Israel, New York, Pennsylvania, Florida, Italy, Singapore
  • Expansion of our Valla zero-emission industrial crane distribution network in Europe and North America

Subsequent to quarter end

  • On July 20, 2020, the Company announced that it had paid down approximately $5.5 million European bank debt at a 15% discount to its face value
  • Initiated restructuring plan for North American operations estimated to generate $5.4 million in annualized cost savings

Steve Filipov, CEO of Manitex commented, "We continue to implement safety protocols globally to protect our employees and their families during the current COVID-19 pandemic, including increased frequency of cleaning and disinfecting, social distancing practices, and other measures consistent with specific regulatory requirements."

"Performance for the second quarter was negatively impacted by lower production and increasing uncertainty, as a result of the continuing pandemic, of the future demand picture in certain geographic markets. COVID-19 forced closures at PM and also impacted our dealers and customers, globally. Notwithstanding this disruption in the marketplace, we have seen consistent improvement in our results in international markets for articulating "knuckle boom" cranes and truck-mounted aerials, particularly in Western Europe and Asia where we are pleased to be establishing PM, PM-Tadano, as developing brands in the global marketplace that we estimate at over $2.3 billion annually. Sales and orders at PM, combined with declines at Manitex straight-mast cranes, have resulted in a higher backlog composition of PM over Manitex for the first time ever, a trend that we anticipate to continue, consistent with our strategy to focus our resources there and grow the business to a much higher level over time."

"While we have reported a loss for the second quarter, on a level of sales that reflect the temporary economics of a global pandemic, we generated $4.6 million in cash from operations, and we continue to take aggressive steps to reduce costs and improve our balance sheet. In this regard, we also paid down a portion of our European debt at a 15% discount of its face value, subsequent to the quarter's close."

"Going forward, our focus will be on right-sizing our business to meet market demand, margin preservation, and generating cash from operations. To that end, we implemented headcount reductions and restricted production schedules in North America during the first half of 2020, and we continued this process further in the third quarter. We expect to generate an additional annualized savings of approximately $5.4 million from these actions. We are preparing for lower demand, exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, which may persist throughout the year, particularly in the Manitex straight-mast crane side of the business. We anticipate continued modest growth at PM, and hope to close out the year with COVID-19 behind us, with PM on pace to reach sales levels not seen since the last uptick in global equipment sales, continued joint sales with our partner, Tadano, and a stabilization of demand in North American crane markets," concluded Mr. Filipov.

Other Matters:

The Company continues to comply with the SEC investigation regarding the Company's restatement of prior financial statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Items

Results of operations reflect continuing operations. All per share amounts are on a fully diluted basis. In this press release, Manitex refers to various non-GAAP (U.S. generally accepted accounting principles) financial measures which management uses to evaluate operating performance, to establish internal budgets and targets, and to compare the Company's financial performance against such budgets and targets. These non-GAAP measures, as defined by the Company, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures being disclosed by other companies. While adjusted financial measures are not intended to replace any presentation included in our consolidated financial statements under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and should not be considered an alternative to operating performance or an alternative to cash flow as a measure of liquidity, we believe these measures are useful to investors in assessing our operating results, capital expenditure and working capital requirements and the ongoing performance of its underlying businesses. The amounts described below are unaudited, are reported in thousands of U.S. dollars, and are as of, or for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, unless otherwise indicated. A reconciliation of Adjusted GAAP financial measures for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 is included with this press release below and with the Company's related Form 8-K.
