The Manitowoc Company Reports Third-quarter Financial Results

“While we experienced positive growth in several Foodservice categories as well as select emerging markets during the third quarter, we did see ongoing softness in Europe given the economic pressures prevalent in that region. However, our continued margin expansion within Foodservice is a testament to our ability to improve operational efficiencies and diligently manage our cost structure. While a challenging environment persists across the globe, we are well positioned for the long-term as we leverage growth opportunities from new and existing products in Foodservice,” Tellock concluded.

Cash Flow

Cash flow from operating activities in the third quarter of 2012 was $50.9 million, compared to $5.0 million in the third quarter of 2011. The increase was primarily generated by cash from profitability and reduced working capital needs. The company decreased total debt in the third quarter of 2012 by $39.2 million.

2012 Guidance

Based on year-to-date results and its outlook for the fourth quarter, the company is narrowing its Crane and Foodservice revenue guidance and is tightening its debt reduction expectations, while reaffirming earnings guidance and all other key full-year financial metrics. As a result, Manitowoc now expects:

■ Crane revenue – 10 to 12% year-over-year percentage growth

■ Crane operating earnings – 30 to 40% year-over-year percentage increase

■ Foodservice revenue – low single-digit percentage growth

■ Foodservice operating earnings – 10 to 15% year-over-year percentage increase

■ Capital expenditures – approximately $80 million

■ Depreciation & amortization – approximately $120 million

■ Interest expense – Range of $125 to $130 million

■ Amortization of deferred financing fees – approximately $10 million

■ Debt reduction – target at least $150 million, which is expected to reduce total leverage by more than one turn
