The Manitowoc Company, Inc. (NYSE: MTW) today reported second-quarter 2016 sales of $457.7 million, a four percent decrease versus $477.7 million in the comparable period in 2015.

On a GAAP basis, the company reported a net loss of ($4.9) million, or ($0.04) per diluted share, in the second-quarter 2016 versus a net income of $23.3 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2015. The company's loss from continuing operations in the second-quarter 2016 and 2015 was ($4.1) million and ($6.3) million, respectively.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income from continuing operations, was $5.0 million or $0.04 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2016 versus a non-GAAP adjusted net loss from continuing operations of ($5.9) million, or ($0.04) per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2015. Adjustments to GAAP results include certain non-recurring items management considers in evaluating operating performance in each period. A reconciliation of GAAP net (loss) income to non-GAAP adjusted net income (loss) for the quarter and year-to-date periods is provided in this press release.

"During the second quarter, our sales were further impacted by a challenging market environment on a number of levels, particularly in Mobile cranes in the Americas. This weakness was in part offset by strength in Tower cranes. While the market conditions are beyond our control, we continue to execute our strategic initiatives by focusing on quality and reliability in all of our products, velocity and innovation, and aligning our cost structure to meet current and future demand levels. Our efforts are paying off. By focusing on items within our control, we tripled our adjusted operating income on flat sales during the first half of the year, underscoring the success of our efforts to drive Lean operating principles using The Manitowoc Way," commented Barry L. Pennypacker, president and chief executive officer of The Manitowoc Company, Inc.

"As we approach the back half of the year, we expect to see market challenges continue and a similar dynamic in sales with continued strength in Tower cranes more than offset by continued weakness in Mobile cranes. In spite of the positive energy we experienced at bauma this year, it is clear that our customers remain cautious around spending given the ongoing global macro-economic uncertainty. As a result, we have lowered our full-year 2016 sales and operating margin guidance. We are confident, however, that the actions we are taking now to position Manitowoc over the long term will allow us to exit this cycle stronger and poised to deliver significant profit growth and shareholder value creation," added Pennypacker.

Financial Results

Second-quarter 2016 net sales were $457.7 million versus $477.7 million in the second quarter of 2015, and compared to $427.4 million in the first quarter of 2016. The sequential increase in sales was primarily due to continued strength in towers as a result of robust residential and commercial construction trends, particularly in Western Europe, as well as new product introductions. This improvement was partly offset by ongoing softness in mobile cranes driven largely by depressed oil and gas markets in the U.S.

Adjusted operating income for the second quarter of 2016 was $14.8 million, compared to $15.4 million in the same period last year. This resulted in an operating margin of 3.2 percent for the second quarter of 2016, consistent with 3.2 percent for the second quarter of 2015. Second-quarter 2016 operating margins were positively impacted by structural reductions in force and other operating efficiencies.

Backlog totaled $394 million as of June 30, 2016, down from the first-quarter of 2016 backlog of $502 million. Second-quarter 2016 orders of $349 million decreased from $417 million in the first-quarter of 2016. This represents a second quarter book-to-bill of 0.8.

Restructuring Activities

As mentioned in its press release dated August 8, 2016, The Manitowoc Company, Inc. announced its intent to relocate its crawler crane manufacturing operations from Manitowoc, Wisconsin to Shady Grove, Pennsylvania. This action addresses the company's strategic imperative of reducing its manufacturing capacity globally. Manitowoc's crawler business intends to maintain its product engineering and related support functions in the Manitowoc, Wisconsin area. The Manitowoc Company, Inc. will maintain its headquarters in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.

The company expects to recognize cash outflows of approximately $35-50 million in settlement of these expenses by the end of 2017. In addition, the company expects to recognize non-cash charges of approximately $105-120 million. In total, this initiative is expected to generate annualized pre-tax cost savings of $25-30 million.

Cash Flow

Net cash flow from operating activities in the second quarter of 2016 was a use of $16.4 million, which includes continuing and discontinued operations. This compares to a source of net cash flow from operating activities in the second quarter of 2015 of $55.5 million, which also included continuing and discontinued operations. Second-quarter capital expenditures totaled $13.8 million as compared to $14.0 million in the second quarter of 2015.

2016 Guidance

For the full-year 2016, Manitowoc expects:
  • Revenue - down approximately 10% to 12%;
  • Adjusted operating income margins - approximately 1% to 2%;
  • Depreciation - between $45 and $50 million;
  • Amortization expense - between $3 and $4 million; and,
  • Capital expenditures - approximately $45 to $50 million.
