JBT Corporation Reports 2019 Results and Outlook for 2020

|Feb 19|magazine61 min read

CHICAGO, Feb. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- JBT Corporation (NYSE: JBT), a leading global technology solutions provider to high-value segments of the food & beverage industry, today reported results for the fourth quarter and full year 2019. Comparisons in this news release are to the comparable period of the prior year, unless otherwise noted.

"JBT posted solid growth and earnings gains in 2019 and ended the year on a positive note," said Tom Giacomini, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer. "We were pleased by the substantial pickup in FoodTech orders in the fourth quarter, although we remain cautious about an environment characterized by business uncertainty. Our restructuring actions and the implementation of the JBT operating system have significantly enhanced our operational efficiency. We enjoyed continued strength across our aftermarket business and were encouraged by the contribution from recent acquisitions. AeroTech continued to capture outsized growth on the strength of new products and a healthy end market."

Full-Year 2019

Revenue of $1.9 billion in 2019 increased 1 percent, as growth of 3 percent organically and 7 percent from acquisitions was partially offset by a 2 percent headwind from foreign exchange translation and a 7 percent decline attributable to the absence of the ASC 606 transition benefit recorded in 2018.

Full year 2019 operating income was $188.2 million and net income was $129.0 million. Adjusted EBITDA expanded 15 percent to $292.0 million, with a 180 basis point margin improvement to 15.0 percent of sales.

FoodTech revenue declined 2 percent with growth from organic revenues of 1 percent along with 8 percent growth from acquisitions partially offsetting a 3 percent headwind from foreign exchange translation and an 8 percent decline attributable to the absence of the ASC 606 transition benefit recorded in 2018. FoodTech operating profit margins expanded 140 basis points from the year-ago period to 13.9 percent in 2019, while absorbing higher acquisition-related costs. FoodTech adjusted EBITDA margins expanded 270 basis points to 19.3 percent.

AeroTech revenue increased 10 percent with growth from organic revenues of 7 percent along with 6 percent growth from acquisitions partially offsetting a 1 percent headwind from foreign exchange translation and a 2 percent decline attributable to the absence of the ASC 606 transition benefit recorded in 2018. AeroTech operating profit margins increased 130 basis points to 12.8 percent while adjusted EBITDA margins expanded 160 basis points to 13.7 percent.

Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations was $4.03 for 2019 compared with $3.24 in 2018. Adjusted earnings per share was $4.96 compared with $4.39 in the year-ago period. "Adjusted earnings per share exceeded our guidance with favorable results in income tax and interest expense," said Brian Deck, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

Fourth Quarter 2019

Fourth quarter 2019 revenue of $545.5 million increased 1 percent, as 9 percent growth from acquisitions offset a 2 percent decline organically, a 1 percent headwind from foreign exchange translation, and a 5 percent decline attributable to the absence of the ASC 606 transition benefit recorded in the fourth quarter of 2018.

FoodTech revenue declined 2 percent with 10 percent growth from acquisitions offsetting a decline from organic revenues of 6 percent, a 2 percent headwind from foreign exchange translation and a 4 percent decline attributable to the absence of the ASC 606 transition benefit recorded in 2018.

AeroTech revenue increased 8 percent with 8 percent growth from organic revenues and 7 percent growth from acquisitions offset by a 7 percent decline attributable to the absence of the ASC 606 transition benefit recorded in 2018.

In the fourth quarter of 2019 operating income was $62.6 million, net income was $42.1 million, and adjusted EBITDA was $87.2 million. While AeroTech's margins expanded year over year in the fourth quarter of 2019,  margins at FoodTech declined primarily due to higher incentive compensation expense.

Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations was $1.31 for the fourth quarter of 2019 compared with $1.34 in the fourth quarter of 2018. Adjusted earnings per share was $1.50 compared with $1.67 in the year-ago period.

Orders and Backlog

Full year 2019 orders declined 1 percent with a 1 percent increase at AeroTech offset by a 2 percent decline at FoodTech. In the fourth quarter of 2019, a 2 percent increase in orders was driven by an 8 percent year-over-year pickup at FoodTech offsetting a 14 percent decline at AeroTech. Backlog declined 1 percent at FoodTech and was flat at AeroTech.

Restructuring Program

JBT booked restructuring charges of $13.5 million in 2019. "For the year, we captured incremental savings of $28 million," added Deck. "We expect to generate additional incremental benefits of approximately $20 million in 2020, bringing total benefits, compared with our base year of 2017, to $55 million."

Outlook

For 2020, the Company anticipates revenue growth of 3 - 4 percent, comprised of approximately 1 percent organic growth and 3 percent from completed acquisitions with a 0 - 1 percent headwind from foreign exchange translation. That breaks down to flat organic performance at FoodTech and 3 - 4 percent organic growth at AeroTech. "We expect acquisitions to drive FoodTech revenue growth in the first half of 2020, with organic growth recovering in the back half of the year," added Giacomini. "We forecast strong AeroTech revenue growth for the first half of the year, with a flattish back half given tougher comparables."

JBT forecasts FoodTech operating margins of 15 - 16 percent and AeroTech operating margins of 14 - 15 percent. These forecasts equate to an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 19.5 - 20.5 percent at FoodTech and 14.5 - 15.5 percent at AeroTech. Depreciation and amortization expense is expected to be $71.0 to $73.0 million,  with interest expense of $22.0 to $23.0 million and pension expense of $3.0 to $4.0 million. Corporate expense, excluding acquisition items, is forecast at 2.7 percent of revenue with a tax rate of approximately 25 percent.

For full-year 2020, the Company is forecasting net income of $159.0 to $166.0 million and adjusted EBITDA of $315.0 to $325.0 million. Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations are projected in the range of $4.95 - $5.15, or an adjusted $5.15 - $5.35 in 2020.

For the first quarter of 2020, the Company expects revenue of $440 - $445 million, reported EPS of $0.68 - $0.73, and adjusted EPS of $0.75 - $0.80.

(1)           Beginning in the first quarter of 2019, we changed our presentation of non-GAAP measures to exclude M&A related costs, 
                specifically amortization of inventory step up, integration costs, and transaction expenses. We evaluate operational performance 
                and operating trends after excluding certain expenses incurred to fulfill our acquisition strategy. M&A related costs are excluded 
                from the prior year results to conform to the current year presentation.


(2)          Impact on tax provision was calculated using the Company's annual tax rate excluding discrete adjustments of 24.5% and 26.3% 
              for December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. In 2019, we have also included certain discrete adjustments related to 
              restructuring.


The above table reports adjusted income from continuing operations and adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations,
which are non-GAAP financial measures. We use these measures internally to make operating decisions and for the planning and forecasting
of future periods, and therefore provide this information to investors because we believe it allows more meaningful period-to-period
comparisons of our ongoing operating results, without the fluctuations in the amount of certain costs that do not reflect our underlying
operating results.

(1) Segment operating profit is defined as total segment revenue less segment operating expenses.  Corporate expense, restructuring expense, interest income and expense, pension expense other than service, and income taxes are not allocated to the segments.  Corporate expense generally includes corporate staff-related expense, stock-based compensation, LIFO adjustments, certain foreign currency related gains and losses, and the impact of unusual or strategic events not representative of segment operations.

 

(2) Total segment operating profit, as presented elsewhere in this release, is a non-GAAP measure.  The table above includes a reconciliation of total segment operating profit to operating income.  We believe that this measure provides to investors a more comprehensive understanding of the information used by management in evaluating the performance of its segment operations.  It is not intended to nor shall be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

(1)           Beginning in the first quarter of 2019, we changed our presentation of non-GAAP measures to exclude M&A related costs, 
                specifically amortization of inventory step up, integration costs, and transaction expenses. We evaluate operational performance and 
                operating trends after excluding certain expenses incurred to fulfill our acquisition strategy. M&A related costs are excluded from 
                the prior year results to conform to the current year presentation.


The above table reports EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Given the Company's focus on growth
through acquisitions, management believes EBITDA facilitates an evaluation of business performance while excluding the impact of
amortization due to the step up in value of intangible assets, and the depreciation of fixed assets. We use Adjusted EBITDA internally to make
operating decisions and believe this information is helpful to investors because it allows more meaningful period-to-period comparisons of
our ongoing operating results.

The above table reports Free cash flow, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. We use Free cash flow internally as a key indicator of our liquidity and ability to service debt, invest in business combinations, and return money to shareholders and believe this information is useful to investors because it provides an understanding of the cash available to fund these initiatives. For Free cash flow purposes we consider contributions to pension plans to more comparable to payment of debt, and therefore exclude these contributions from the calculation of Free cash flow.
