Actuant Reports Strong Fourth Quarter Results; Announces Stock Repurchase Program

Actuant Corporation (NYSE: ATU) today announced results for its fourth quarter ended August 31, 2011.

Highlights

  • A 61% increase in diluted earnings per share from continuing operations (“EPS”) to $0.50, compared to $0.31 in the comparable prior year quarter (excluding prior year restructuring charges, see attached reconciliation of earnings.)
  • Consolidated 10% year-over-year increase in core revenue (total sales less the impact of acquisitions, divestitures and foreign currency rate changes) with double digit growth in both the Industrial and Energy segments.
  • Year-over-year operating profit margin expansion of 120 basis points, excluding prior year restructuring costs.
  • Strong cash flow from operations totaling $76 million.
  • Completed the previously announced acquisition of Weasler Engineering, Inc. (“Weasler”), adding broad agriculture exposure to the portfolio.
  • Today’s announcement of a stock repurchase program.
  • Maintained fiscal 2012 sales and EPS outlook of $1.60-$1.65 billion and $1.80-$2.00, respectively, excluding the impact of future acquisitions and potential share repurchases.

Robert C. Arzbaecher, Chairman and CEO of Actuant commented, “Actuant’s strong fourth quarter performance reflects terrific execution and continued momentum in our key end markets. In particular, we were pleased to see consolidated double-digit core sales growth for the sixth straight quarter despite tougher comparables. Fourth quarter core revenue increased 10%, above the high-end of our expectations with strong growth in both Energy and Industrial. The higher volumes, along with continued margin improvement, drove the robust 61% EPS growth. Free cash flow also exceeded our forecast due to higher earnings and effective working capital management.”

Consolidated Results from Continuing Operations

Consolidated sales for the fourth quarter were $403 million, 30% higher than the comparable prior year quarter. Core sales increased 10% with acquisitions contributing an additional 14% and the weaker U.S. dollar adding 6%. Earnings and EPS from continuing operations were $37.3 million and $0.50, respectively, compared to $20.9 million and $0.29 in the comparable prior year quarter. Fourth quarter fiscal 2010 results included $2.4 million of pre-tax restructuring costs. Excluding this item, fiscal 2011 fourth quarter EPS from continuing operations of $0.50 was 61% higher than the $0.31 in the prior year. (See attached reconciliation of earnings.)

For the fiscal year ended August 31, 2011, sales were $1,445 million, 25% higher than the $1,161 million in the prior year. Excluding the impact of the weaker U.S. dollar (+2%) and acquisitions (+10%), core sales for the year increased 13%. Earnings and EPS from continuing operations for the year ended August 31, 2011 were $124.5 million, or $1.68 per diluted share, compared to $70.4 million, or $0.97 per diluted share in the prior year. Fiscal 2010 results included pre-tax restructuring costs as well as income tax adjustments. Excluding these items, current year EPS of $1.68 was 56% higher than the $1.08 in the prior year. (See attached reconciliation of earnings.)

Commenting on the full year results, Arzbaecher stated, “Fiscal 2011 again demonstrated the value of Actuant’s growth oriented, ROIC focused business model. We generated 56% EPS growth and 150 basis points of operating margin improvement, while investing in our Growth + Innovation initiatives. We delivered core sales growth for the year of 13%, while continuing to reposition the portfolio towards higher growth markets. We generated $172 million in cash from operations and deployed $313 million in acquisitions, while also reducing our debt leverage and expanding our bank facility. I am extremely pleased with the efforts of the global Actuant team this past year and am equally encouraged about the opportunities that lie ahead in fiscal 2012.”

Discontinued Operations

Discontinued operations in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 included final deferred tax adjustments related to the divestiture of the European Electrical business. For the full year, discontinued operations represent the operating results as well as a non-cash asset impairment charge for the European Electrical business, which was divested in the second quarter of fiscal 2011.

Fourth quarter fiscal 2011 Industrial segment sales were $109 million, 27% higher than the prior year. Excluding foreign currency rate changes (+8%), Industrial segment core sales increased 19%. The strong year-over-year growth rate was driven by continued robust global demand across nearly all served markets. In addition, new product introductions and a focused effort on higher growth vertical markets contributed to the sales increase. Adjusted operating profit margins improved 80 basis points year-over-year due to incremental volumes, partially offset by unfavorable mix resulting from higher Integrated Solutions sales.

(2) Excludes restructuring costs of $0.1 million and $2.0 million for the three and twelve months ended August 31, 2010.

Fiscal 2011 fourth quarter year-over-year Energy segment sales increased 35% to $83 million. Excluding the 1% contribution from acquisitions and 6% favorable impact from foreign currency rate changes, core sales increased 28% due primarily to higher activity levels across virtually all of the segment’s primary markets. Notably, increased capital project activity in oil & gas, maintenance related spending in North America and emerging markets, and strong sales to the power generation market were among the primary drivers. Fiscal 2011 fourth quarter adjusted operating profit margins improved 720 basis points year-over-year due to operating leverage on the higher volumes.

(3) Excludes restructuring costs of $0.9 million and $4.5 million for the three and twelve months ended August 31, 2010.

Electrical segment fiscal 2011 fourth quarter sales were $80 million, 28% higher than the comparable prior year quarter. Excluding foreign currency rate changes (+2%) and the Mastervolt acquisition (+26%), core sales were unchanged as most of the segment’s end markets including retail, wholesale distribution, marine and OEM remain sluggish. Results from Mastervolt, which was acquired in December 2010, reflect stable marine market sales and continued weak solar inverter product sales; however, excessive solar channel inventory levels have started to modestly improve. Fourth quarter adjusted operating margins improved 130 basis points sequentially from the third quarter on flat sales due to the benefit of pricing and cost reduction actions, but declined year-over-year due to acquisition mix.

(4) Excludes restructuring costs of $0.8 million and $3.6 million for the three and twelve months ended August 31, 2010.

Fourth quarter fiscal 2011 Engineered Solutions segment sales increased 31% from the prior year to $132 million. Excluding the impact of the Weasler acquisition (+25%) and the weaker U.S. dollar (+8%), year-over-year core sales declined modestly (-2%) as expected. The core sales decline is due primarily to European OEM plant holiday shutdowns which did not occur in the prior year as well as lower automotive revenues due to the anniversary of prior year new platform launches and lower lift gate sales. The segment continued to see solid demand from the global heavy-duty truck, agriculture and construction equipment markets. Fourth quarter adjusted operating margins increased 230 basis points year-over-year, despite Weasler acquisition related costs, due to continued operational improvements.

Corporate

Corporate expenses for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 were $11.7 million. The approximate $4 million year-over-year increase is due to Weasler transaction costs, idle facility charges, higher incentive compensation and Growth + Innovation initiative spending.

Financial Position

Net debt at August 31, 2011 was $481 million (total debt of $525 million less $44 million of cash), an increase of $82 million from the beginning of the quarter. In early June 2011, the Company deployed approximately $153 million of capital to fund the Weasler acquisition. Strong fourth quarter free cash flow was used to reduce revolver borrowings. Availability under the Company’s $600 million revolver was approximately $540 million at August 31, 2011.

Stock Repurchase Program

The Company announced that its Board of Directors unanimously approved a stock repurchase program covering up to seven million shares, or approximately 10%, of its outstanding Class A common stock.

"At current trading levels, the Board of Directors believes that our stock is an attractive investment for Actuant and its shareholders," said Arzbaecher. "Consistent with our business model, the primary and preferred use of our cash flow will continue to be reinvestment in our business through both organic and acquisition opportunities. However, in light of recent stock market volatility, we believe initiating a stock repurchase program will provide us the flexibility to respond when attractive opportunities arise to acquire shares."

Outlook

Arzbaecher continued, “Our outlook for fiscal 2012 assumes that the global economy and worldwide industrial activity continue to reflect modest expansion, albeit not at the same level experienced in fiscal 2011. We expect to benefit from momentum in our later cycle businesses as well as new products and emerging market growth. On a consolidated basis, we expect core sales growth to continue to moderate as fiscal 2012 unfolds, with full year core sales growth in the range of 5%-8%. We are projecting fiscal 2012 EPS of $1.80-$2.00 on sales of approximately $1.60-$1.65 billion. Projected free cash flow for fiscal 2012 is $155-$165 million. We expect first quarter fiscal 2012 sales in the $365-$375 million range and EPS of $0.40-$0.45, which at the mid-point is an 18% year-over-year improvement. Our guidance excludes the impact of future acquisitions and any share repurchases, as the timing and investment levels are both unknown.

We believe that global macro trends such as energy demand, globalization, expanding infrastructure and food requirements, combined with our continued investments in acquisitions, new products, emerging markets, and continuous improvement initiatives will enable Actuant to deliver profitable, sustainable growth and shareholder value."

FOOTNOTES
NOTE: The total of the individual quarters may not equal the annual total due to rounding.
(1)

As a result of the global economic downturn in 2009, the Company implemented various restructuring initiatives aimed at reducing its cost structure and improving operational performance.  These restructuring actions were substantially completed at August 31, 2010.  Fiscal 2011 fourth quarter and year-to-date operating results include $628 and $2,310 of restructuring charges, respectively, which are included in segment operating profit, EBITDA and earnings per share, as the amounts are not significant.  However, fiscal 2010 operating profit, EBITDA and earnings per share amounts exclude restructuring charges for comparability purposes.

A summary of restructuring charges included in cost of products sold is as follows:

(2)

Net earnings and diluted earnings per share excluding restructuring charges (2010 only), income tax adjustments and discontinued operations represent net earnings and diluted earnings per share per the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings net of charges or credits for items to be highlighted for comparability purposes.  These measures should not be considered as an alternative to net earnings or diluted earnings per share as an indicator of the Company's operating performance.  However, this presentation is important to investors for understanding the operating results of the current portfolio of Actuant companies.  The total of the individual components may not equal due to rounding.

(3)

EBITDA represents net earnings before financing costs, net, income tax expense, depreciation & amortization and discontinued operations.  EBITDA is not a calculation based upon generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).  The amounts included in the EBITDA calculation, however, are derived from amounts included in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings data. EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net earnings or operating profit as an indicator of the Company's operating performance, or as an alternative to operating cash flows as a measure of liquidity.  Actuant has presented EBITDA because it regularly reviews this as a measure of the company's ability to incur and service debt.  In addition, EBITDA is used by many of our investors and lenders, and is presented as a convenience to them.  However, the EBITDA measure presented may not always be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies due to differences in the components of the calculation.  The total of the individual quarters may not equal the annual total due to rounding.
