Anixter International Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2013 Results

Anixter International Inc. (NYSE: AXE) today reported sales of $1.56 billion for the quarter ended September 27, 2013, a 3.2 percent decrease compared to the year ago quarter. The year-over-year reported sales decline would have been approximately 2.7 percent excluding the negative impact of the previously reported conclusion of a large security solutions contract in the fourth quarter of 2012. Organic sales, which excludes the impact of the following two items, declined by 2.2 percent year-over-year:
  • $9.5 million from the unfavorable effect of copper pricing
  • $6.6 million from the unfavorable effect of foreign exchange

Our third quarter of 2013 results included a net $4.7 million after-tax benefit primarily related to closing prior tax years and related interest. Our third quarter of 2012 results included an impairment charge of $27.2 million and an inventory lower-of-cost-or-market adjustment of $1.2 million, resulting in a total non-cash pre-tax charge of $28.4 million (after-tax $27.4 million). Due to the change in the country mix of the full year forecast of earnings, both quarterly periods were negatively impacted by an increase in the annual tax rate. All of the results from continuing operations and year-over-year comparisons herein exclude the impact of these items and reconciliations have been provided in the supplemental information at the end of this release.

Adjusted earnings per diluted share from continuing operations of $1.52 compares to $1.43 in the year ago quarter. Current quarter adjusted earnings per diluted share of $1.52 also includes an unfavorable impact of the lower average price of copper of $0.04 per diluted share.

Operating income in the quarter of $92.4 million was adversely impacted by the slowdown in our Canadian markets and delays in previously awarded projects in both our Wire and Cable and Enterprise Cabling and Security Solutions segments. Partially offsetting the challenging demand environment was an improvement in gross margin. Adjusted operating income in the year ago quarter was $95.7 million. Operating margin of 5.9 percent increased from 5.4 percent in the previous quarter, including sequential improvement in all segments. Versus the prior year, operating margin was flat on an adjusted basis. Adjusted net income from continuing operations of $50.4 million compares to adjusted net income of $48.0 million in the year ago quarter.

“Overall the third quarter was challenging, as we experienced an uneven recovery in global markets. Nevertheless we are encouraged by the significant improvement in sales and profitability in our OEM Supply segment, sales growth in all three segments in Europe, and improving margin trends in all segments,” commented Bob Eck, President and CEO. “Even in a slow growth environment we have demonstrated the discipline to manage through short term challenges while continuing to invest for long term growth.”

Income Statement Detail

Gross margin of 22.9 percent for the third quarter of 2013 compares to 22.5 percent in the second quarter of 2013 and an adjusted 22.4 percent in the year ago quarter that excludes the $1.2 million inventory adjustment. The increase compared to the prior year reflects improved gross margin in all segments.

Operating expenses of $264.6 million for the third quarter of 2013 increased 0.1 percent over the prior year quarter. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange, operating expenses increased 0.3 percent year-over-year compared to an organic sales decrease of 2.2 percent. Interest expense of $11.3 million decreased by $5.3 million compared to the prior year quarter due to the redemption of the convertible notes in the first quarter of 2013. Foreign exchange and other expense of $1.7 million decreased $1.5 million from the prior year quarter primarily due to the interest income of $0.7 million as a result of closing prior tax years. Excluding the items identified in the supplemental information, our annual effective tax rate is 36 percent, which is the rate we expect for the full year based on our full year forecast and change in the country mix of earnings.

Segment Update

Enterprise Cabling and Security Solutions (“ECS”) sales of $804.3 million compares to $837.0 million in the prior year period. The 3.9 percent decline was caused by the slowing of our Canadian market, the impact of the previously disclosed Security Solutions contract and on-going macroeconomic weakness in the Emerging Markets regions. ECS sales would have declined 2.9 percent excluding the impact of the Security Solutions contract. We continue to experience a slow recovery in our US markets as many customers continue to delay investments. Organically, sales declined 3.6 percent.

Sequentially, global sales declined 1.2 percent from the second quarter of 2013, caused by weakness in the North America and Emerging Markets regions, partially offset by the improved performance of the segment’s Europe markets. Security sales increased by 2.7 percent over the prior year quarter, and would have increased by 7.3 percent excluding the same concluded contract.

ECS operating income of $42.5 million compares to adjusted operating income of $47.2 million in the year ago quarter. The year-over-year decrease was caused primarily by lower volume in the segment’s Emerging Markets and Canada geographies. Operating margin for ECS of 5.3 percent compares to 5.6 percent in the year ago quarter. Sequentially, operating margin improved 10 basis points versus the second quarter, reflecting reduced operating expenses.

Electrical and Electronic Wire and Cable (“W&C”) achieved third quarter sales of $528.6 million, a 6.7 percent decrease from the prior year period, caused by the slowing of our Canadian and Latin American markets, which resulted from a decrease in the number of large projects, primarily in the mining and renewable energy customer verticals, and the negative impact of a decline in copper pricing. Excluding the $9.5 million unfavorable impact from a $0.29 decline in the average price of copper, and the $5.2 million unfavorable impact from foreign exchange, organic sales decreased by 4.1 percent. Sequentially, global sales were flat versus the second quarter of 2013, reflecting the slowdown in Canada and the delay of several large projects.

Year-to-date, Industrial Communications and Control sales of $179 million continue to reflect strong growth, up 16 percent over the prior year period, primarily driven by growth in North America.

Operating income of $41.5 million compares to adjusted operating income of $48.2 million in the year ago quarter. The year-over-year decrease was caused primarily by lower volume in the segment’s North America and Latin America geographies and the impact of lower average copper prices. Operating margin of 7.9 percent compares to 7.2 percent in the second quarter of 2013 and an adjusted operating margin of 8.5 percent in the year ago quarter. The increase in sequential margin reflects both improved gross margin and improved expense management while the decline in year-over-year margin was caused by weaker geographic and product mix combined with negative cost leverage due to lower copper pricing.

OEM Supply (“OEM”) sales of $224.7 million increased by 9.3 percent from the prior year quarter, reflecting the ramp up of a contract in Europe and an improvement in North America heavy truck production levels versus the downturn in the prior year quarter. Excluding the $1.6 million favorable impact from foreign exchange, organic sales increased by 8.5 percent. On a sequential basis, sales declined 4.4 percent driven by the typical seasonality in OEM manufacturing activity.

Operating income of $8.4 million compares to adjusted operating income of $0.3 million in the year ago quarter and compares to $5.7 million in the previous quarter. Operating margin of 3.7 percent compares to adjusted operating margin of 0.2 percent in the prior year quarter and 2.4 percent in the second quarter of 2013.

Cash Flow and Leverage

In the quarter, the company generated $79.9 million of cash from operations bringing the year-to-date cash flow from operations to $191.6 million. This compares to $125.9 million of cash from operations through the third quarter of 2012.

“Our disciplined working capital and cash management processes are even more critical in the current uncertain economic environment. With our focus on capital management and our expectation of a continued slow growth environment, we expect continued positive cash flow in the fourth quarter,” commented Ted Dosch, Executive Vice President and CFO. “Our financial position continues to be very strong; we constantly evaluate the optimal use of our funds, and we remain committed to investing in our growth initiatives and returning excess capital to our shareholders, as we have done consistently over the past five years.”

Key capital structure and credit-related statistics for the quarter:
  • Debt-to-total capital ratio of 42.8 percent compares to 50.3 percent at the end of 2012
  • Weighted average cost of borrowed capital of 5.1 percent compares to 6.3 percent in the year ago quarter
  • $417.5 million of availability under bank revolving lines of credit at quarter end
  • $215 million of outstanding borrowings under the $300 million accounts receivable securitization facility at quarter end

Business Outlook

“While the pace of the recovery was slower than we had expected at the beginning of the quarter, we believe market conditions across our businesses are gradually improving. We experienced some delays in shipments across all of our businesses, resulting in some revenue that we expected to realize in the third quarter shifted into the fourth quarter and early 2014. As a result, we now expect to deliver fourth quarter organic sales growth in the low single digit range, which will result in relatively flat sales performance for the full year.” Eck concluded, “We have taken aggressive measures to ensure our cost structure is aligned with the current slow growth environment, while continuing to invest in our strategic growth initiatives, including security, industrial communication and control, in-building wireless and e-commerce. As companies continue their relentless focus to reduce costs, our business model, which is based on helping our customers lower their supply chain costs and reduce execution risk, is of even greater value. We are well positioned financially, operationally and strategically to capitalize on opportunities in our markets.”

Safe Harbor Statement

The statements in this presentation other than historical facts are forward-looking statements made in reliance upon the safe harbor of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from what is indicated here. These factors include but are not limited to general economic conditions, the level of customer demand particularly for capital projects in the markets we serve, changes in supplier sales strategies or financial viability, risks associated with the sale of nonconforming products and services, political, economic or currency risks related to foreign operations, inventory obsolescence, copper price fluctuations, customer viability, risks associated with accounts receivable, the impact of regulation and regulatory, investigative and legal proceedings and legal compliance risks and risks associated with integration of acquired companies. These uncertainties may cause our actual results to be materially different than those expressed in any forward looking statements. We do not undertake to update any forward looking statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the results provided in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) above, this report includes certain financial measures computed using non-GAAP components as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Specifically, net sales comparisons to the prior corresponding period, both worldwide and in relevant segments, are discussed in this report both on a GAAP basis and excluding acquisitions, foreign exchange effects and the impact of copper prices (“non-GAAP”). We believe that by reporting organic growth which excludes the impact of acquisitions, foreign exchange effects and the impact of copper prices, both management and investors are provided with meaningful supplemental sales information to understand and analyze our underlying trends and other aspects of our financial performance. From time to time, we may also exclude other items from reported financial results (e.g., impairment charges, inventory adjustments, restructuring charges, tax items, etc.) so that both management and financial statement users can use these non-GAAP financial measures to better understand and evaluate our performance period over period and to analyze the underlying trends of our business.

Non-GAAP financial measures provide insight into selected financial information and should be evaluated in the context in which they are presented. These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information presented in compliance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures, as reported by us, may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in conjunction with the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and Management’s analysis of financial condition and results of operations included in this report. Management does not use these non-GAAP financial measures for any purpose other than the reasons stated above.
