Non-GAAP segment operating profit rose 22% ($13 million) while the segment profit margin declined from 7.5% to 7.1%. The profit improvement was driven by organic growth ($5 million), the favorable effect of acquisitions and dispositions ($5 million), and favorable currency translation ($3 million). The decline in segment margin rate reflects the addition of $105 million of low-margin revenue related to the Mexico acquisition. Excluding Mexico, the margin rate improved to 7.7%.

The increase in Non-GAAP earnings was driven by higher segment profits ($13 million), which were offset by increases in borrowing costs ($2 million), non-segment expenses ($2 million) and noncontrolling interest ($2 million).

Michael T. Dan, chairman, president and chief executive officer, said: “While third-quarter segment operating results improved over year-ago levels, with all regions showing revenue and profit growth, we were not satisfied with the level of improvement. Profit growth in Latin America was solid but below our expectations and, given the persistence of challenging market conditions in North America and Europe, it’s clear that our second-half results will not be as strong as anticipated. As a result, our full-year segment margin rate is likely to be in the 6.0% to 6.3% range versus our targeted range of 6.5% to 7.0%. Our initial outlook for 2012 calls for continued strong organic revenue growth in the mid-to-high single-digit percentage range. Our full-year 2012 segment margin should improve to the 6.5% to 7.0% range. We will provide more information on our 2012 outlook when we release fourth-quarter earnings.”

Revenue and Segment Operating Profit: The “Currency” amount in the table is the summation of the monthly currency changes, plus (minus) the U.S. dollar amount of remeasurement currency gains (losses) of bolivar fuerte-denominated net monetary assets recorded under highly inflationary accounting rules related to the Venezuelan operations. The monthly currency change is equal to the Revenue or Operating Profit for the month in local currency, on a country-by-country basis, multiplied by the difference in rates used to translate the current period amounts to U.S. dollars versus the translation rates used in the year-ago month. The functional currency in Venezuela is the U.S. dollar under highly inflationary accounting rules. Remeasurement gains and losses under these rules are recorded in U.S. dollars but these gains and losses are not recorded in local currency. Local currency Revenue and Operating Profit used in the calculation of monthly currency change for Venezuela have been derived from the U.S. dollar results of the Venezuelan operations under U.S. GAAP (excluding remeasurement gains and losses) using current period currency exchange rates.

Capital Expenditures

Third-quarter capital expenditures were $47 million versus $41 million in the year-ago quarter. During the quarter, the company entered into capital lease agreements for new assets of $9 million versus $6 million in the year-ago quarter.

Year-to-date capital expenditures were $119 million versus $103 million in the prior period. During the first nine months of 2011, the company entered into capital lease agreements for new assets of $39 million versus $20 million in the prior period.

Full-year 2011 capital expenditures are expected to be between $180 million and $190 million, including approximately $30 million in Mexico. Capital lease agreements for new assets in 2011 are expected to be between $40 million and $50 million.

Income Taxes

2011 Versus 2010

On a GAAP basis, the third-quarter tax expense was $21 million (effective rate of 37%) versus $16 million (effective rate of 38%) in 2010. This year’s lower rate was due primarily to a $4 million income tax benefit related to a valuation allowance release in the U.S., partially offset by a $1 million tax expense related to recently enacted tax legislation.

2011 Forecast

The effective income tax rate for 2011 is expected to be between 36% and 39%. The mid-point of this range, 37.5%, is the adjusted tax rate used to compute quarterly non-GAAP results.

Recent Events

In July, Brink’s completed the sale of its U.S. Document Destruction business. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

In September, Brink’s completed the settlement of previously disclosed litigation related to its November 2010 exit of cash-in-transit operations in Belgium. Under the final settlement, Brink’s contributed 7 million euros (approximately $10 million) toward social payments to former Brink’s Belgium employees in exchange for the receivers requesting withdrawal of pending litigation and agreeing not to file additional claims. Brink’s recorded a charge of $10 million ($.13 per share after tax) related to the settlement in the second quarter of 2011, and has not recorded any additional amount related to this claim. Brink’s continues to operate in Belgium through its Global Services unit, which provides secure transport of diamonds, jewelry, precious metals, banknotes and other commodities.

Non-GAAP Results

Non-GAAP results described in this earnings release are financial measures that are not required by, or presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The purpose of the non-GAAP results is to report financial information without certain income and expense items and adjust the quarterly non-GAAP tax rates so that the non-GAAP tax rate in each of the quarters is equal to the full-year non-GAAP tax rate. For 2011, a forecasted full-year tax rate is used. The full year non-GAAP tax rate in both years excludes certain pretax and tax income and expense amounts. The non-GAAP information provides information to assist comparability and estimates of future performance. Brink’s believes these measures are helpful in assessing operations and estimating future results and enable period-to-period comparability of financial performance. Non-GAAP results should not be considered as an alternative to revenue, income or earnings per share amounts determined in accordance with GAAP and should be read in conjunction with their GAAP counterparts.

Forward-Looking Statements

This release contains both historical and forward-looking information. Words such as “anticipates,” “estimates,” “expects,” “projects,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “may,” “should” and similar expressions may identify forward-looking information.

(a)   Title to cash received and processed in certain of our secure cash logistics operations transfers to us for a short period of time. The cash is generally credited to customers’ accounts the following day and we do not consider it as available for general corporate purposes in the management of our liquidity and capital resources and in our computation of Net Debt.
 

Net Debt is a supplemental financial measure that is not required by, or presented in accordance with GAAP. We use Net Debt as a measure of our financial leverage. We believe that investors also may find Net Debt to be helpful in evaluating our financial leverage. Net Debt should not be considered as an alternative to Debt determined in accordance with GAAP and should be reviewed in conjunction with our consolidated balance sheets. Set forth above is a reconciliation of Net Debt, a non-GAAP financial measure, to Debt, which is the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and reported in accordance with GAAP, as of September 30, 2011, and December 31, 2010. At September 30, 2011, Net Debt was $245 million excluding cash and debt in Venezuelan operations.
