Rexnord Corporation Reports Second Quarter Results For Fiscal 2013

Rexnord Corporation (NYSE:RXN):

Consolidated Highlights
  • Net sales increased 11% from the prior year second quarter to $500 million (+2% core sales, +11% acquisitions/divestitures, -2% foreign currency translation).
  • Adjusted net income increased 50% from the prior year to $24 million; reported net income from continuing operations increased to $20 million compared to $4 million in the prior year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 11% from the prior year to $101 million or 20.1% of net sales.
  • Adjusted earnings per share was $0.24; reported diluted earnings per share was $0.19.
  • Total liquidity was $759 million ($440 million of cash plus $319 million of available borrowings).

Todd A. Adams, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We delivered solid second quarter financial results consistent with what we had expected, as core sales growth of 2% and solid execution drove an 11% increase in Adjusted EBITDA. In Process & Motion Control, we posted 3% core growth while delivering a record second quarter Adjusted EBITDA margin of 25.1% as strong execution and targeted growth programs offset a generally slow macro environment. In Water Management, overall sales growth was 38% and core growth progressed to flat compared to the prior year as our growth initiatives coupled with the VAG acquisition are delivering the traction we anticipated, setting up a solid second half for our Water Management platform. We are reaffirming our full year guidance of $2,020 million to $2,060 million of net sales and $412 million to $425 million of Adjusted EBITDA.”

Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Segment Highlights

Process & Motion Control

Process & Motion Control ("PMC") net sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 were $309 million compared to $310 million in the second quarter fiscal 2012. Core sales increased 3% from the prior year second quarter driven by growth in aerospace, energy and food and beverage end-markets. Core sales growth was offset by the unfavorable impact of foreign currency fluctuations and a fiscal 2012 second quarter divestiture.

PMC Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter was $78 million and Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of sales increased 140 basis points from the prior year period to 25.1% of sales. Our Adjusted EBITDA margin increase was driven by productivity gains and efficiencies as well as increased operating leverage on higher year-over-year core sales.

Water Management

Water Management net sales in the second quarter increased 38% from the prior year to $190 million due to the acquisition of VAG. Core sales were flat year-over-year as market share gains and increased alternative market sales in our non-residential construction end-markets were offset by expected lower shipments to our North American municipal water end-markets.

Water Management Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter was $31 million and Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of sales was 16.0% as core margin expansion year-over-year was offset by the mix impact of VAG.

Discontinued Operations

During the second quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company’s Board of Director's approved a plan to divest a non-core engineered chain business located in Shanghai, China within the PMC platform. The Company is currently engaged in an active sale process and expects the transaction to be completed within the next 12 months. The Company recognized a loss from discontinued operations net of tax of $1.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Prior year balance sheet and statement of operations amounts have been reclassified to conform to the discontinued operations presentation. The Company will not have continuing involvement after a sale is completed and Management does not believe that the divestiture of this non-core business will have a material impact on the Company's results of operations, financial position, or cash flows.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The following non-GAAP financial measures are utilized by management in comparing our operating performance on a consistent basis. We believe that these financial measures are appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of our underlying operating performance trends compared to historical and prospective periods and our peers. Management also believes that these measures are useful to investors in their analysis of our results of operations and provide improved comparability between fiscal periods. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information calculated in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures presented above to our GAAP results has been provided in the financial tables included in this press release.

Core Sales

Core sales excludes the impact of acquisitions, divestitures and foreign currency translation. Management believes that core sales facilitates easier comparisons of our net sales performance with prior and future periods and to our peers. We exclude the effect of acquisitions because the nature, size and number of acquisitions can vary dramatically from period to period and between us and our peers, and can also obscure underlying business trends and make comparisons of long-term performance difficult. We exclude the effect of foreign currency translation from this measure because the volatility of currency translation is not under management's control.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share

Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share (calculated on a diluted basis) exclude actuarial gains and losses on pension and postretirement benefit obligations, restructuring and other similar costs, gains or losses on divestitures, gains or losses on extinguishment of debt, the impact of inventory fair value adjustments in connection with purchase accounting, and other non-operational, non-cash or non-recurring losses, net of their income tax impact. The tax rates used to calculate adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share is based on a transaction specific basis. We believe that adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share are useful in assessing our financial performance by excluding items that are not indicative of our core operating performance or that may obscure trends useful in evaluating our continuing results of operations.

EBITDA

EBITDA represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is presented because it is an important supplemental measure of performance and it is frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. EBITDA is also presented and compared by analysts and investors in evaluating the performance of issuers of “high yield” securities because it is a common measure of the ability to meet debt service obligations. Other companies in our industry may calculate EBITDA differently. EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities or as a measure of liquidity or an alternative to net income as indicators of operating performance or any other measures of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. Because EBITDA is calculated before recurring cash charges, including interest expense and taxes, and is not adjusted for capital expenditures or other recurring cash requirements of the business, it should not be considered as a measure of discretionary cash available to invest in the growth of the business.

Adjusted EBITDA

“Adjusted EBITDA” is the term we use to describe EBITDA as defined and adjusted in our senior secured credit facilities, which is net income, adjusted for the items summarized in the table below. Adjusted EBITDA is intended to show our unleveraged, pre-tax operating results and therefore reflects our financial performance based on operational factors, excluding non-operational, non-cash or non-recurring losses or gains. Adjusted EBITDA is not a presentation made in accordance with GAAP, and our use of the term Adjusted EBITDA varies from others in our industry. This measure should not be considered as an alternative to net income, income from operations or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA has important limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. For example, Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect: (a) our capital expenditures, future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments; (b) changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; (c) the significant interest expenses, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our debt; (d) tax payments that represent a reduction in cash available to us; (e) any cash requirements for the assets being depreciated and amortized that may have to be replaced in the future; (f) management fees that may be paid to Apollo; or (g) the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters that we and the lenders under our secured senior credit facilities may not consider indicative of our ongoing operations. In particular, our definition of Adjusted EBITDA allows us to add back certain non-cash, non-operating or non-recurring charges that are deducted in calculating net income, even though these are expenses that may recur, vary greatly and are difficult to predict and can represent the effect of long-term strategies as opposed to short-term results.

In addition, certain of these expenses can represent the reduction of cash that could be used for other corporate purposes. Further, although not included in the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA below, the measure may at times allow us to add estimated cost savings and operating synergies related to operational changes ranging from acquisitions to dispositions to restructurings and/or exclude one-time transition expenditures that we anticipate we will need to incur to realize cost savings before such savings have occurred. Further, management and various investors use the ratio of total debt less cash to Adjusted EBITDA (which includes a full pro-forma last-twelve-month impact of acquisitions), or "net debt leverage", as a measure of our financial strength and ability to incur incremental indebtedness when making key investment decisions and evaluating us against peers.

Free Cash Flow

We define Free Cash Flow as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures, and we use this metric in analyzing our ability to service and repay our debt and to forecast future periods. However, this measure does not represent funds available for investment or other discretionary uses since it does not deduct cash used to service our debt.
