Wabtec Reports Strong 4Q and Full Year 2019 Results

0
Sponsored by Businesswire

Wabtec Corporation (NYSE: WAB) today reported strong results for the fourth quarter and full year 2019 and issued 2020 financial guidance.

Rafael Santana, Wabtec’s president and chief executive officer, said: “Wabtec delivered strong results for the fourth quarter, concluding a solid year for the company. While we faced increased challenges in the North American freight market, the full year results demonstrate the strength of our portfolio through increased global scale, a more diversified business mix and significant installed base.

“Our multi-year backlog, combined with growth opportunities in services, transit and international markets puts Wabtec in a solid position to manage through the current freight rail cycle. We continue to make significant progress in our synergy and cost initiatives and expect margin expansion in both segments in 2020. We remain confident that we will exceed our synergy target of $250 million before 2022.”

2019 Financial Summary

In the fourth quarter of 2019, Wabtec had cash from operations of $448 million, sales of $2.4 billion and GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.71. Adjusted earnings per diluted share were $1.04 and included $0.06 for after-tax non-cash policy harmonization and excluded after-tax expenses of $0.29 for restructuring, transaction and litigation costs, offset by $0.02 from increased tax expense for non-deductible transaction costs (see reconciliation table).

For the full year of 2019, Wabtec had cash from operations of $1.0 billion, sales of $8.2 billion and GAAP earnings per diluted share of $1.84. Adjusted earnings per diluted share were $4.17 and included $0.39 for after-tax non-cash policy harmonization and excluded after-tax expenses of $1.94 as follows: $0.79 for one-time, non-cash purchase price accounting charges; $1.08 for restructuring, transaction and litigation costs and $0.07 from increased tax expense for non-deductible transaction costs (see reconciliation table).

Backlog remains strong, despite a challenging market. At December 31, Wabtec’s total, multi-year backlog was $22.4 billion, and its 12-month backlog was $5.6 billion, which was higher than at September 30 as increased OEM orders in both Freight and Transit more than offset changes in foreign currency exchange rates.

2020 Financial Guidance

  • Wabtec issued 2020 GAAP sales guidance of about $8.7 billion, GAAP income from operations guidance of about $1.1 billion and GAAP earnings per diluted share guidance to between $3.20 to $3.50. Wabtec issued guidance for EBITDA, which Wabtec defines as income from operations plus depreciation and amortization, of about $1.6 billion.
  • Wabtec issued guidance for adjusted income from operations of about $1.4 billion and adjusted EBITDA of about $1.6 billion. Wabtec also issued 2020 guidance for adjusted earnings per diluted share to between $4.50 to $4.80. The adjusted guidance excludes estimated expenses for recurring purchase price accounting amortization. Excluding these expenses, the company’s adjusted operating margin target for the full year is about 16% and its adjusted effective tax rate for the full year is expected to be about 25.5%. With aggressive cost actions and synergies stemming from the Wabtec and GE Transportation merger ahead of plan, we expect to see a net synergy benefit of over $150 million in 2020.
  • For full year 2020, Wabtec expects GAAP cash flow from operations to be about $900 million and to include approximately $100 million of cash outflows related to prior year restructuring and litigation costs.
  • Wabtec anticipates 2020 first quarter sales, adjusted net income, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted earnings per diluted share to be lower when compared to the remainder of 2020, in line with expected first quarter seasonality and project scheduling, with improvement expected through the rest of the year.

2019 Fourth Quarter Consolidated Results

  • GAAP sales were $2.4 billion. The increase compared to the year-ago quarter resulted mainly from sales from GE Transportation and higher transit sales partially offset by lower sales in freight components and unfavorable foreign exchange rates.
  • Income from operations was $226 million (9.5% of GAAP sales) and adjusted income from operations was $313 million (13.2% of adjusted sales) which was negatively impacted by original equipment (OE) mix and certain transit projects offset somewhat by timing of policy harmonization and locomotive services. Adjusted income from operations included $16 million for non-cash, accounting policy harmonization but excluded pre-tax expense of $71 million for restructuring, transaction, and litigation costs (see reconciliation table).
  • Net interest expense was $58 million, with adjusted net interest expense of $55 million.
  • Income tax expense was $38 million for an effective tax rate of 21.6%. Excluding the net tax benefit from restructuring, transaction costs related to the GE Transportation merger and litigation costs adjusted income tax expense was $63 million for an adjusted effective tax rate of about 23.8%.
  • Earnings per diluted share were $0.71 and adjusted earnings per diluted share were $1.04 (see reconciliation table). Adjusted earnings per diluted share included $0.06 for after-tax non-cash policy harmonization and excluded after-tax expenses of $0.29 for restructuring, transaction and litigation costs, offset by $0.02 from increased tax expense for non-deductible transaction costs (see reconciliation table).
  • In addition to the expenses noted above, the company also had after-tax expense of $0.26 per diluted share for non-cash, recurring purchase price accounting charges which is not added back to adjusted earnings per diluted share.
  • EBITDA, which Wabtec defines as income from operations plus depreciation and amortization, was $337 million and adjusted EBITDA was $424 million. Adjusted EBITDA included $16 million for policy harmonization and excluded pre-tax expenses of $71 million for restructuring, transaction and litigation costs (see reconciliation table).

2019 Fourth Quarter Segment Results

  • Freight segment sales of $1.7 billion increased by 296% from the year-ago quarter or

    $1.2 billion; the increase resulted from acquisitions of $1.3 billion which was partially offset by an organic decrease of $22 million and unfavorable changes in foreign currency exchange rates of $2 million. Freight segment organic sales were negatively impacted by lower sales in freight car components.
  • Freight segment income from operations of $239 million (or 14.3% of segment sales) increased from the year-ago quarter by $164 million mainly as a result of acquisitions. Freight segment income from operations was reduced by $31 million due to the policy harmonization, restructuring, transaction and litigation expenses noted. Excluding those items, Freight segment adjusted income from operations as a percent of adjusted sales was 16.1%. Adjusted Freight segment income from operations benefited from higher sales of electronics offset by negative seasonality in services.
  • Transit segment sales of $701 million increased by 1% from the year-ago quarter or

    $5 million. The increase resulted from organic sales growth of $19 million and acquisitions of $2 million, which was partially offset by unfavorable changes in foreign currency exchange rates of $16 million. Transit segment sales were positively impacted by growth in aftermarket components.
  • Transit segment income from operations of $39 million (or 5.6% of segment sales) increased 7% from the year-ago quarter. Excluding restructuring charges of $11 million, Transit segment adjusted income from operations as a percent of sales was 7.1%. Adjusted segment income from operations were impacted by lower margin refurbishment projects, partially offset by better performance in other Transit product areas.

2019 Fourth Quarter Cash Flow Summary

  • The company generated cash from operations of $448 million for the fourth quarter compared to cash from operations of $277 million in the year-ago quarter, with the increase resulting from higher financial results (net income plus net add-back for non-cash transactions in earnings) and improved working capital performance. At December 31, the company had cash and cash equivalents of $604 million and total debt of $4.4 billion. Total debt was about $316 million lower than at September 30 due to repayment of debt during the quarter.

Information about non-GAAP Financial Information and Forward-Looking Statements

Wabtec’s earnings release and 2020 financial guidance mention certain non-GAAP financial performance measures, including adjusted sales, adjusted operating margin, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted effective tax rate, adjusted income from operations, adjusted interest and other expense and adjusted earnings per diluted share. Wabtec defines EBITDA as income from operations plus depreciation and amortization. While Wabtec believes these are useful supplemental measures for investors, they are not presented in accordance with GAAP. Investors should not consider non-GAAP measures in isolation or as a substitute for net income, cash flows from operations, or any other items calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the non-GAAP financial measures included in this presentation have inherent material limitations as performance measures because they add back certain expenses incurred by the company to GAAP financial measures, resulting in those expenses not being taken into account in the applicable non-GAAP financial measure. Because not all companies use identical calculations, Wabtec’s presentation of non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Included in this release are reconciliation tables that provide details about how adjusted results relate to GAAP results.

This communication contains “forward-looking” statements as that term is defined in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements regarding the acquisition by Wabtec of GE Transportation (the “GE Transportation merger”) and statements regarding Wabtec’s expectations about future sales and earnings. All statements, other than historical facts, including statements regarding the expected benefits of the GE Transportation merger, including anticipated synergy benefits; statements regarding Wabtec’s plans, objectives, expectations and intentions; legal, economic and regulatory conditions; and any assumptions underlying any of the foregoing, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements concern future circumstances and results and other statements that are not historical facts and are sometimes identified by the words “may,” “will,” “should,” “potential,” “intend,” “expect,” “endeavor,” “seek,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “overestimate,” “underestimate,” “believe,” “could,” “project,” “predict,” “continue,” “target” or other similar words or expressions. Forward-looking statements are based upon current plans, estimates and expectations that are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those indicated or anticipated by such forward-looking statements. The inclusion of such statements should not be regarded as a representation that such plans, estimates or expectations will be achieved. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from such plans, estimates or expectations include, among others, (1) unexpected costs, charges or expenses resulting from the GE Transportation merger; (2) uncertainty of Wabtec’s expected financial performance; (3) failure to realize the anticipated benefits of the GE Transportation merger, including as a result of integrating GE Transportation into Wabtec; (4) Wabtec’s ability to implement its business strategy; (5) difficulties and delays in achieving revenue and cost synergies; (6) inability to retain and hire key personnel; (7) evolving legal, regulatory and tax regimes; (8) changes in general economic and/or industry specific conditions, including the impacts of tax and tariff programs, industry consolidation and changes in the financial condition or operating strategies of our customers; (9) changes in the expected timing of projects; (10) a decrease in freight or passenger rail traffic; (11) an increase in manufacturing costs; (12) actions by third parties, including government agencies; and (13) other risk factors as detailed from time to time in Wabtec’s reports filed with the SEC, including Wabtec’s annual report on Form 10-K, periodic quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, periodic current reports on Form 8-K and other documents filed with the SEC. The foregoing list of important factors is not exclusive. Any forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this communication. Wabtec does not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information or development, future events or otherwise, except as required by law. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any of these forward-looking statements

SEGMENT FINANCIAL INFORMATION

Initiatives to integrate GE Transportation operations into Wabtec including recent restructuring programs announced in late 2019 resulted in changes to the Company’s organizational structure and the financial reporting utilized by the Company’s chief operating decision maker to assess performance and allocate resources; as a result, certain asset groups were reorganized from Freight to Transit and vice versa.  The composition of the Company’s reportable segments was changed effective in the fourth quarter of 2019. The changes to the asset groups comprising the Freight and Transit segments have been reflected through retrospective revision of prior period segment information.
