Market Overview

Titan International, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2021 Net Sales Up 18 Percent YoY

Share:

QUINCY, Ill., May 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Titan International, Inc. (NYSE:TWI), a leading global manufacturer of off-highway wheels, tires, assemblies, and undercarriage products, today reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

Net sales for the first quarter of 2021 were $403.5 million, compared to net sales of $341.5 million for the first quarter of 2020, representing a $62.0 million, or 18.2 percent, increase.  On a constant currency basis, net sales for the first quarter 2021 would have been $409.3 million.  Net income applicable to common shareholders for the first quarter of 2021 was $13.6 million, equal to income of $0.22 per basic and diluted share, compared to a loss of $25.5 million, equal to a loss of $0.42 per basic and diluted share, in the first quarter of 2020. 

"The positive momentum we highlighted during our most recent earnings release in March has continued and has increased further over the past couple of months," stated Paul Reitz, President and Chief Executive Officer.  "The first quarter of 2021 was our strongest quarter since the first half of 2018 with net sales over $403 million and adjusted EBITDA above $26 million.  These results are on the high side of our Q1 outlook. The strong recovery we began to see in our global Ag markets in the fourth quarter has now accelerated and includes additional demand within our earthmoving and construction (EMC) businesses beyond our initial expectation at this point in the year.  During the first quarter of 2021, Ag and EMC experienced volume increases over 15 percent and 19 percent respectively. These market dynamics, as well as our continued cost discipline emphasized over the last year, led to a gross margin percentage of 13.2% representing a 450 basis point improvement from last year's first quarter.

"Based on a number of positive factors in the Agricultural sector, including higher crop prices, low inventory levels for new and used equipment, strong farmer income, and the age of existing equipment, we believe that the current market trends experienced in Q1 will continue, and in some cases even improve throughout 2021 into 2022.  We are taking the necessary steps in managing the workflow and operational levels at all of our production facilities to meet existing demand along with the future needs of our customers.  Titan has a long history of being flexible to adjust to changing markets with impressive depth in our production capabilities and we continue to hire and train people to meet this growing demand. 

"Many companies around the world are facing supply chain and logistics shortages, but we are managing well to this point, due to well-coordinated supply chain management that requires continuous attention and action. At the same time, we have been and will continue to take, appropriate pricing actions to cover the rising costs of raw materials, labor and logistics.  The second quarter will likely be much of the same, with volatility, but we are up to the task of managing through the opportunities and the challenges in front of us.  Due to this volatility, it is prudent to hold back on providing specific guidance for the remainder of the year, and we will address this as we progress through the year.

"In the third quarter of 2019, we outlined our strategic goal to protect our balance sheet in order to position Titan to successfully refinance our 2023 bonds.  Our management team worked hard to make consistent progress on that goal over the past 18 months and based on those efforts, last month we refinanced our $400 million bonds to a 2028 maturity date.   Looking at our balance sheet this quarter, working capital had an impact on cash flow during the quarter as we ended with $96 million in cash.  Although we continued to manage it carefully, inventory grew approximately $20 million due to growing sales volumes, but was lower as a percent of sales resulting in some cash flow efficiency gains despite the impact from increasing raw material pricing. We anticipate cash flow during the second quarter will continue to be tighter somewhat due to working capital, but also due to nearly $19 million of costs associated with refinancing our $400 million bonds. We expect continuing improvements in cash flow as we progress through the second half of the year."

Morry Taylor, Chairman of the Board, commented, "At our last Board meeting, we discussed the long history of Titan's Tire and Wheel business, specifically in the Agriculture sector, and it was suggested that I provide a refresher on that to our shareholders.  We also discussed the positive trends we are seeing in the marketplace.  I have been involved in this business since 1973, and have seen a fair number of business cycles.  Nobody knows for certain what is going to happen with this cycle, but I am going to share some thoughts on what could be important for Titan going forward.

  • In October 2020, major global OEMs were forecasting 5% Ag growth for 2021 – today their forecasts are much higher and likely will go higher as their order books are full and beyond their production levels
  • The price of soybeans and corn had a strong surge at the end of 2020 and has kept on climbing in 2021
  • OEMs and their dealers significantly reduced inventories for large tractors and combines over the past couple years and now it is time to rebuild those channels. However, with demand levels rising so rapidly, new equipment is hard to find in 2021 and it could take as much as 2-3 years to catch up on certain equipment.
  • OEMs are trying hard to build more equipment to meet market demand, but the supply base for steel and many other components used in their equipment is a current problem.
  • Large farmers started buying tractors, combines and sprayers near the end of the year to get tax depreciation benefits, while smaller farmers continued to buy both new and used equipment. The result is pricing on new equipment at some OEMs went up in Q4 – big time, over 8% in some cases.
  • Delivery dates of new equipment are being delayed for many months with some situations seeing deliveries a year out. As a result, farmers are needing to replace tires on tractors and combines as equipment ages.
  • South America is booming in Ag and is sold out for 2021. Farmers are going to larger equipment and that means larger tires/wheels – Titan's real strength!

Morry Taylor continued, "As you can see, there are good reasons to believe that Titan's business for 2021 looks strong.  Titan has the productive capacity to satisfy the needs of our customers during this crazy market.

"Through the years, there is one item that really makes this a wild business.  For example, a farmer might order 540R/46 duals, but then the weather gets wet and he might want to change to LSW 1100R46 Titan's Super Singles. The same with tires and wheels for combines and sprayers, which means a lot different wheels and tires being moved around in the schedule.  This all adds up to a tremendous amount of OEM scheduling changes that create challenges.  Bottom line is that Titan needs to charge more for these changes because we have the industry leading capabilities to meet our customer's needs.

"Along with our production capabilities, Titan has the capacity in North America to handle the increases in market demand.  We are hiring and training additional employees, along with managing the supply chain in order to get steel, rubber, paint and nylon fabric.  So, how do you deal with this situation and plan production accordingly?  First, we work with OEMs and sign them up for long-term agreements (LTAs) to allow us to plan our production better. If they don't want to agree to a LTA, we schedule production to take care of those who do. The non-LTA customers will then have to be allocated behind the customers that have a signed LTA.

"Paul's team has set-up Titan well for a good run of growth in sales and profitability.  I believe that there will be a good run in the farm business that will go for a few years due to a number of factors as Paul and I have noted, including the need to rebuild inventory levels.  With the bond deal closed and as performance continues to get better, there are acquisitions that Titan could take to grow and serve our customers in an even bigger way.  If these moves get done, I believe they could be a big boost to Titan.  Paul's team's first mission is increasing production, but he and the Board will focus on these actions also.  As always, I would like to thank our shareholders for their continued support."

Results of Operations

Net sales for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021, were $403.5 million, compared to $341.5 million in the comparable quarter of 2020, an increase of 18.2 percent driven by sales increases in the agricultural and earthmoving/construction segments.  Overall net sales volume and product price and mix was up 15.1 percent and 4.8 percent, respectively, from the comparable prior year quarter, due to increases in demand in both the agricultural and earthmoving/construction segments.  Pricing increases have been occurring due to the rise in raw material and other inflationary costs in the markets, including freight.  The contributing factors to the increase in demand were increased commodity prices, lower equipment inventory levels and pent up demand following the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic during 2020.  In Europe we experienced over $14 million in reduced sales during the first quarter of 2020 directly as a result of plant closures in Italy and China due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which did not repeat during the first quarter of 2021.  The increase in net sales was partially offset by unfavorable foreign currency translation, which negatively impacted net sales by 1.7 percent or $5.7 million.

Gross profit for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021 was $53.3 million, compared to $27.2 million in the comparable prior year period.  Gross margin was 13.2 percent of net sales for the quarter, compared to 8.0 percent of net sales in the comparable prior year period.  The increase in gross profit and margin was driven by the impact of increases in sales volume as described previously and overhead cost reduction initiatives executed across global production facilities following the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Selling, general, administrative, research and development (SGARD) expenses for the first quarter of 2021 were $36.6 million, compared to $34.4 million for the comparable prior year period.  As a percentage of net sales, SGARD was 9.1 percent, compared to 10.1 percent for the comparable prior year period.  The increase in SG&A was driven primarily by investments to improve our supply chain and logistics processes of $1.5 million and an increase in other employee-related costs as a result of improved operating performance and growth in sales. 

Income from operations for the first quarter of 2021 was $14.2 million, or 3.5 percent of net sales, compared to a loss of $9.6 million, or 2.8 percent of net sales, for the first quarter of 2020.  The increase in income was due to the higher sales and improvements in gross profit margins.

Foreign exchange gain was $9.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to a loss of $17.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020.  The foreign exchange gain experienced during the three months ended March 31, 2021 includes realized foreign currency gains associated with an ongoing initiative to rationalize Titan's legal entity structure and ongoing management of the intercompany capital structure as well as a favorable impact of the movement of foreign exchange rates.  The foreign exchange loss experienced during the three months ended March 31, 2020 is the result of the significant favorable and unfavorable movements in foreign currency exchange rates in many of the geographies in which we conduct business and translation of intercompany loans at certain foreign subsidiaries which are denominated in local currencies rather than the reporting currency, which is the United States dollar.  Since such loans are expected to be settled at some point in the future, these loans are adjusted each reporting period to reflect the current exchange rates. During the first quarter of 2020, we had settled a number of intercompany loans as part of a loan restructuring initiative with a resulting foreign exchange loss which is reflected in the total foreign exchange loss recognized for the first quarter of 2020.

The first quarter of 2021 net income applicable to common shareholders was $13.6 million, equal to income of $0.22 per basic and diluted share, compared to loss of $25.5 million, equal to a loss of $0.42 per basic and diluted share, in the comparable prior year period, an improvement of $39.1 million.

Adjusted EBITDA was $26.3 million for the first quarter of 2021, compared to $9.3 million in the comparable prior year period.  The Company utilizes EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP financial measures, as a means to measure its operating performance.  A reconciliation of net income (loss) to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA can be found at the end of this release.

During the quarter net sales volume and product price and mix was up 15.0 percent and 10.2 percent, respectively, from the comparable prior year quarter due to demand in the market, relative to improved farmer income, an aging large equipment fleet and lower equipment inventory levels within the dealer channels.  Pricing is primarily reflective of increases in raw material and other cost increases in the markets, including freight.  The overall increase in net sales was partially offset by unfavorable currency translation, primarily in Latin America, Europe and Russia of 4.5 percent.  The increase in gross profit and margin is primarily attributable to the impact of increases in sales volume as described previously and overhead cost reduction initiatives executed across global production facilities following the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the quarter the increase in earthmoving/construction sales was driven by increased volume of 19.1 percent, which was primarily due to improvement in global economic conditions and early recovery in construction markets, including the return to normalized supply and demand levels in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.  For the three months ended March 31, 2020, the direct impact of the COVID-19 pandemic accounted for approximately $11.9 million of the sales decrease due to plant shutdowns and market disruptions in Europe and Asia, which did not repeat during the first quarter of 2021.  Net sales was also favorably impacted by foreign currency translation in Europe, which increased net sales by 3.2 percent.  Unfavorable product price and mix reduced net sales by 1.9 percent primarily in North America and Europe, reflecting a lag on increases in raw material costs.  The increase in gross profit and margin was primarily driven by the increased sales volume and continued improved production efficiencies.

During the quarter the decrease was driven by unfavorable foreign currency translation and volume impacts to net sales of 7.7 percent and 1.7 percent, respectively.  The unfavorable foreign currency translation primarily relates to Latin America.  The decrease was partially offset by favorable product price and mix impacts to net sales of 4.1 percent reflecting raw material and other cost increases in the market. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to increased sales volume.

Financial Condition

The Company ended the first quarter of 2021 with total cash and cash equivalents of $96.0 million, compared to $117.4 million at December 31, 2020.  Long-term debt at March 31, 2021, was $440.6 million, compared to $433.6 million at December 31, 2020. Short-term debt was $31.1 million at March 31, 2021, compared to $31.1 million at December 31, 2020.  Net debt (total debt less cash and cash equivalents) was $375.7 million at March 31, 2021, compared to $347.3 million at December 31, 2020.

Net cash used by operating activities for the first three months of 2021 was $16.0 million, compared to net cash provided by operations of $4.0 million for the comparable prior year period. Capital expenditures were $8.9 million for the first three months of 2021, compared to $6.4 million for the comparable prior year period.  Capital expenditures during the first three months of 2021 and 2020 represent equipment replacement and improvements, along with new tools, dies and molds related to new product development.  The overall capital outlay for 2021 is expected to increase as the Company seeks to enhance the Company's existing facilities and manufacturing capabilities and drive productivity gains following suppression of capital outlay in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and reduction of business activity.

Titan International, Inc.
Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited)
Amounts in thousands, except earnings per share data

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). These supplemental schedules provide a quantitative reconciliation between each of adjusted net income (loss) attributable to Titan, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, net sales on a constant currency basis, and net debt, each of which is a non-GAAP financial measure and the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and reported in accordance with GAAP.

We present adjusted net income (loss) attributable to Titan, adjusted earnings per common share, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, net sales on a constant currency basis, and net debt, as we believe that they assist investors with analyzing our business results. In addition, management reviews each of these non-GAAP financial measures in order to evaluate the financial performance of each of our segments, as well as the Company's performance as a whole. We believe that the presentation of these non–GAAP financial measures will permit investors to assess the performance of the Company on the same basis as management.

Adjusted net income (loss) attributable to Titan, adjusted earnings per common share, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, net sales on a constant currency basis, and net debt should be considered supplemental to, not a substitute for, the financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. One should not consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for our results reported under GAAP. These measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operations of our businesses as determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these measures may be calculated differently than non-GAAP financial measures reported by other companies, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. We attempt to compensate for these limitations by analyzing results on a GAAP basis as well as a non-GAAP basis, prominently disclosing GAAP results and providing reconciliations from GAAP results to non-GAAP results.

The table below provides a reconciliation of adjusted net income (loss) attributable to Titan to net income (loss) applicable to common shareholders, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, for each of the three month periods ended March 31, 2021 and 2020.
