Kennametal Announces Strong Fiscal 2018 Third Quarter Results

 

PITTSBURGH, May 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Kennametal Inc. (NYSE: KMT) today reported results for its fiscal 2018 third quarter ended March 31, 2018, with EPS of $0.61, compared with EPS of $0.48 in the prior year quarter. Adjusted EPS was $0.70 in the current quarter compared with $0.60 in the prior year quarter.

"I am pleased to report another strong operating quarter for Kennametal," commented Chris Rossi, Kennametal president and CEO. "Our end markets are robust, and the work we are doing on our three initiatives - growth, simplification and modernization - is driving improvements to results and margins. We are intensely focused on executing our multi-year plan."

Mr. Rossi continued, "We are aggressively pursuing our simplification efforts and starting to get traction on the execution of our modernization initiatives, which contributed to our strong results. We expect to see increased benefits from these initiatives going forward in line with our multi-year plan. In addition, even in the face of rising raw material costs, price realization outpaced raw material cost inflation, and we expect to sustain that trend for the fiscal year. As a result of the combination of these factors, we are raising the midpoint of our adjusted EPS outlook and expectations for cash flow."

This earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures, reconciliations for which are set forth in the tables attached to this earnings release, and corresponding descriptions are contained in the company's Current Report on Form 8-K, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on May 2, 2018.

Fiscal 2018 Third Quarter Key Developments

  • Sales were $608 million, compared with $529 million in the prior year quarter. Sales increased by 15 percent, driven by 11 percent organic growth and a 6 percent favorable currency exchange impact, partially offset by a 2 percent decrease due to fewer business days. Sales grew in all segments, end markets and regions.
  • Pre-tax restructuring and related charges were $2 million, or $0.01 on a per share basis, and pre-tax benefits from cost savings initiatives were approximately $41 million. In the prior year quarter, pre-tax restructuring and related charges were $10 million, or $0.12 per share, and pre-tax benefits were approximately $30 million.
  • Operating income was $85 million, compared to $58 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted operating income was $87 million, compared to $68 million in the prior year quarter. The increase in adjusted operating income is due primarily to organic sales growth, incremental restructuring benefits, favorable currency exchange and mix, partially offset by higher raw material costs, decreased manufacturing efficiency in part due to modernization efforts in progress, salary inflation and higher variable compensation expense due to higher than expected operating results. Price realization outpaced raw material cost inflation. Operating margin was 14.0 percent in the current period compared to 11.0 percent in the prior year quarter. Adjusted operating margin was 14.3 percent in the current period compared to 12.8 percent in the prior year quarter.
  • The reported effective tax rate (ETR) was 31.2 percent and the adjusted ETR was 23.1 percent. The difference between the reported and adjusted ETR in the quarter is driven primarily by a discrete charge of $6 million, or $0.08 per share, to record adjustments to the provisional toll tax associated with U.S. tax reform. For the prior year quarter, the reported ETR was 19.0 percent and the adjusted ETR was 15.3 percent. The change in the adjusted ETR year-over-year is primarily due to U.S. income in the prior year quarter not being tax-effected and current quarter U.S. income being tax-effected now that a valuation allowance is no longer recorded on U.S. deferred tax assets.
  • EPS was $0.61, compared with $0.48 in the prior year quarter. Adjusted EPS was $0.70 in the current quarter and $0.60 in the prior year quarter. Reported EPS in the current quarter includes a charge related to U.S. tax reform of $0.08 and restructuring and related charges of $0.01, and for the prior year quarter includes restructuring and related charges of $0.12.
  • Year-to-date net cash flow from operating activities was $181 million compared to $83 million in the prior year period. Year-to-date free operating cash flow was $54 million compared to negative $7 million in the prior year period. The change in free operating cash flow is driven primarily by higher cash from operations before changes in certain other assets and liabilities and lower restructuring payments, offset partially by higher working capital and capital expenditures.
  • Net income attributable to Kennametal was $51 million compared with $39 million in the prior year quarter. EBITDA was $109 million, compared with $82 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was $111 million in the current quarter and $91 million in the prior year quarter.

Segment Developments for the Fiscal 2018 Third Quarter

  • Industrial sales of $333 million increased 15 percent from $289 million in the prior year quarter, reflecting organic sales growth of 10 percent and an 8 percent favorable currency exchange impact, partially offset by a 3 percent decrease due to fewer business days.
  • Industrial operating income was $53 million compared to $39 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted operating income was $54 million compared to $44 million in the prior year quarter, driven primarily by organic sales growth, incremental restructuring benefits and favorable currency exchange impact, partially offset by decreased manufacturing efficiency in part due to modernization efforts in progress, higher variable compensation expense due to higher than expected operating results, and salary inflation. Industrial operating margin was 15.9 percent compared to 13.3 percent in the prior year quarter. Industrial adjusted operating margin was 16.2 percent compared with 15.1 percent in the prior year quarter.
  • Widia sales of $52 million increased 13 percent from $46 million in the prior year quarter, driven by organic sales growth of 9 percent and a 5 percent favorable currency exchange impact, partially offset by a 1 percent decrease due to fewer business days.
  • Widia operating income was $2 million compared to $1 million in the prior year quarter. The increase was due primarily to organic sales growth, partially offset by slightly unfavorable mix. Widia operating margin was 3.1 percent compared with 1.3 percent in the prior year quarter. Widia adjusted operating margin was 3.2 percent compared with 2.3 percent in the prior year quarter.
  • Infrastructure sales of $223 million increased 15 percent from $193 million in the prior year quarter, driven by organic sales growth of 14 percent and a 3 percent favorable currency exchange impact, partially offset by a 2 percent decrease due to fewer business days.
  • Infrastructure operating income was $32 million compared to $20 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted operating income was $32 million compared to $24 million in the prior year quarter, primarily driven by organic sales growth, favorable mix, favorable currency exchange impact and incremental restructuring benefits, partially offset by higher raw material costs, decreased manufacturing efficiency in part due to modernization efforts in progress and higher compensation expense. Infrastructure operating margin was 14.3 percent compared to 10.3 percent in the prior year quarter. Infrastructure adjusted operating margin was 14.6 percent compared with 12.3 percent in the prior year quarter.

  • Operating income was $210 million, compared to $73 million in prior year. Adjusted operating income was $220 million in the current period, compared to $126 million in the prior year. Adjusted operating income increased due primarily to organic sales growth, incremental restructuring benefits, favorable mix and favorable currency exchange impact, partially offset by salary inflation, higher raw material costs and higher variable compensation expense due to higher than expected operating results. Operating margin was 12.2 percent, compared to 4.9 percent in the prior year. Adjusted operating margin was 12.8 percent, compared to 8.4 percent in the prior year.
  • EPS was $1.59 in the current year, compared with $0.30 in the prior year. Adjusted EPS was $1.78 in the current year and $0.95 in the prior year.

Outlook

The company now expects adjusted EPS for the full fiscal year to be in the range of $2.55 to $2.65 per share on organic sales growth at the top end of the prior outlook of 9 to 11 percent, a change from the previous adjusted EPS outlook of $2.40 to $2.70 per share. The company now expects free operating cash flow to be $60 to $75 million, which includes expected net capital expenditures near the low end of the previous outlook of $210 to $230 million. The previous outlook of free operating cash flow was $0 to $30 million.
