Highlights:

  • Second quarter fiscal 2014 consolidated net sales were $416.6 million, a decrease of $22.5 million or 5.1% from the prior year.
  • Increased sales of lawn and garden equipment were offset by lower sales of standby and portable generators compared to last year when Hurricane Sandy occurred.
  • The reduced storm activity reduced net sales and diluted earnings per share by an estimated $55 million and $0.12 in the fiscal quarter compared with last year.
  • Second quarter 2014 consolidated net income excluding restructuring charges was $2.3 million, or $1.4 million lower than the adjusted net income of $3.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.
  • The Company recorded pre-tax restructuring charges of $2.3 million ($1.6 million after tax or $0.04 per diluted share) during the three months ended December 29, 2013.

"During the quarter we continued to see year over year sales of lawn and garden equipment and related parts sales improving both in North America and in Australia," commented Todd J. Teske, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Briggs & Stratton Corporation. "While these positive trends were not enough to offset the sales we saw last year related to storms Isaac and Sandy, we remain optimistic for an improved lawn and garden market this spring," continued Teske. "Adjusted margins expanded in the quarter in both the engines and products businesses as we continue to focus on reducing costs, streamlining our operations and delivering margin expanding innovations to consumers. This spring we are excited to launch several new engine and product solutions including Quiet Power Technology™ that reduces the sound of a walk mower as much as 80%, Ready Start® push button starting for riding mowers, and the new Powerflow + Technology™ pressure washer that has both variable flow and pressure capabilities, to name just a few."

Consolidated Results:

Consolidated net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 were $416.6 million, a decrease of $22.5 million or 5.1% from the second quarter of fiscal 2013, due to lower sales of standby and portable generators, partially offset by higher sales of engines and lawn and garden products. The quarterly impact of fewer weather related events creating demand for generators and the related engines was an estimated sales decrease of $55 million. The fiscal 2014 second quarter consolidated net income, which includes restructuring charges, was $0.7 million or $0.01 per diluted share. The second quarter of fiscal 2013 consolidated net loss, which includes restructuring charges, was $0.6 million or $0.02 per diluted share. The impact of the reduced engines and generator sales in the quarter was an estimated $0.12 per diluted share compared with last year's second fiscal quarter.

Included in the consolidated net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 were pre-tax charges of $2.3 million related to restructuring actions. Included in consolidated net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 were pre-tax charges of $6.6 million related to restructuring actions. After removing the impact of these items, the adjusted consolidated net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was $2.3 million or $0.05 per diluted share, which was $1.4 million lower compared to the second quarter fiscal 2013 adjusted consolidated net income of $3.7 million or $0.07 per diluted share.

For the first six months of fiscal 2014, consolidated net sales were $733.9 million, a decrease of $14.2 million or 1.9% when compared to the same period a year ago. The consolidated net loss for the first six months of fiscal 2014 was $18.6 million or $0.41 per diluted share. The consolidated net loss for the first six months of fiscal 2013 was $17.2 million or $0.37 per diluted share.

Included in the consolidated net loss for the first six months of fiscal 2014 were pre-tax charges of $5.9 million ($4.4 million after tax or $0.10 per diluted share) related to the restructuring actions. Included in the consolidated net loss for the first six months of fiscal 2013 were pre-tax charges of $11.8 million ($7.6 million after tax or $0.16 per diluted share) related to the restructuring actions. After considering the impact of the restructuring charges, the adjusted consolidated net loss for the first six months of fiscal 2014 was $14.2 million or $0.31 per diluted share, which was an increase of $4.7 million or $0.10 per diluted share compared to the first six months of fiscal 2013 consolidated net loss of $9.5 million or $0.21 per diluted share.

Engines Segment fiscal 2014 second quarter net sales were $265.7 million, which was $8.5 million or 3.1% lower than the second quarter of fiscal 2013. This decrease in net sales was due to lower sales of engines used in generators due to the lack of storm activity during the quarter. Fiscal 2013 second quarter net sales benefited from the impact of Hurricane Sandy. The decrease was partially offset by higher North American sales of engines used on lawn and garden equipment and related service parts due to OEM's building lawn and garden inventory for the upcoming lawn and garden season.  

The Engines Segment adjusted gross profit percentage for the second quarter of 2014 was 21.0%, which was slightly higher compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2013. The increase was related to a favorable impact of 0.6% from sales mix of higher margin service parts and margin contributed from the Branco acquisition which closed late in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Partially offsetting the increase was a 0.5% unfavorable impact from foreign exchange primarily related to the Australian Dollar. Manufacturing throughput decreased in the second quarter of 2014 by 9%; however, production mix was favorable as proportionately more large engines were built.

The Engines Segment engineering, selling, general and administrative expenses were $45.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2014, an increase of $1.7 million from the second quarter of fiscal 2013. The increase was primarily due to increased compensation costs and the added expenses related to Branco, partially offset by lower retirement plan expenses of $0.8 million.   

Engines Segment net sales for the first six months of fiscal 2014 were $449.5 million, which was $10.8 million or 2.5% higher than the same period a year ago. The increase was primarily driven by higher North American sales of engines used on lawn and garden equipment and related service parts due to strong demand stemming from late season growing conditions as well as the anticipated increased retail demand for the upcoming lawn and garden season. The increase was partially offset by lower sales of engines used in generators due to the lack of storm activity during the first six months of fiscal 2014. Hurricanes Isaac and Sandy occurred during the first six months of fiscal 2013. 

The Engines Segment adjusted gross profit percentage for the first six months of 2014 was 18.4%, which was 0.5% lower compared to the first six months of fiscal 2013. The decrease was due to the unfavorable impact of 1.1% due to a 12% reduction in manufacturing throughput and 0.4% attributable to unfavorable foreign exchange. The decrease was partially offset by 1.0% from favorable sales mix of higher margin service parts and the margin contributed by Branco.

The Engines Segment engineering, selling, general and administrative expenses were $88.9 million in the first six months of fiscal 2014, an increase of $2.8 million. The increase is primarily due to increased compensation costs and the added expenses related to Branco partially offset by lower retirement plan expenses of $2.4 million.

Products Segment fiscal 2014 second quarter net sales were $171.5 million, a decrease of $26.0 million or 13.2% from the second quarter of fiscal 2013. The decrease in net sales was driven by lower net sales of standby and portable generators due to no landed hurricanes in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 and unfavorable foreign exchange predominantly related to the Australian Dollar and the Brazilian Real. Hurricane Sandy occurred in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and no significant storms occurred in fiscal 2014. This decrease was partially offset by favorable late season growing conditions during the second quarter of fiscal 2014 that led to higher net sales of lawn and garden equipment through our North American dealer channel as well as higher sales of pressure washers and service parts. Net sales also benefited from the Branco acquisition.

The Products Segment adjusted gross profit percentage for the second quarter of 2014 was 13.0%, which was 2.4% higher than the adjusted gross profit percentage for the second quarter of fiscal 2013. The increase was primarily related to a favorable mix of products sold in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 with the additional margin from Branco and an increase in net sales of lawn and garden equipment through the North America dealer channel.  The adjusted gross profit percentage also benefited by 0.7% due to improved manufacturing efficiencies and incremental footprint restructuring savings of $0.3 million. Partially offsetting the increase was a 1.0% unfavorable impact from foreign exchange.  

The Products Segment fiscal 2014 second quarter engineering, selling, general and administrative expenses were $26.2 million, an increase of $0.8 million from the second quarter of fiscal 2013. The increase was mainly attributable to the additional expenses from Branco and higher compensation costs partially offset by lower marketing spend and favorable foreign exchange.

Products Segment net sales for the first six months of fiscal 2014 were $324.6 million, a decrease of $46.2 million or 12.5% from the same period a year ago. The decrease in net sales was driven by lower sales of standby and portable generators due to no landed hurricanes during the first six months of fiscal 2014 and unfavorable foreign exchange predominantly due to the Australian Dollar and the Brazilian Real.  Hurricanes Isaac and Sandy occurred during the first six months of fiscal 2013. This decrease was partially offset by favorable late season growing conditions during the first six months of fiscal 2014 that led to higher sales of lawn and garden equipment through our North American dealer channel as well as higher sales of pressure washers and service parts. Net sales also benefited from the Branco acquisition.

The Products Segment adjusted gross profit percentage for the first six months of 2014 was 12.9%, which was 1.1% higher compared to the first six months of fiscal 2013. The increase was primarily related to a 0.8% benefit from improved manufacturing efficiencies and incremental footprint restructuring savings of $0.8 million. The adjusted gross profit percentage also benefited from a favorable mix of products sold in the first six months of fiscal 2014 with the additional margin from Branco and an increase in net sales through the North America dealer channel. Partially offsetting the increase was a 0.4% unfavorable impact from foreign exchange.  

The Products Segment engineering, selling, general and administrative expenses were $51.7 million in the first six months of fiscal 2014, an increase of $2.9 million from the first six months of fiscal 2013. The increase was mainly attributable to the additional expenses from Branco and higher compensation costs, partially offset by lower marketing spend and favorable foreign exchange.

Corporate Items:

Interest expense for the second quarter and first six months of fiscal 2014 was comparable to the same periods a year ago.

The effective tax rate for the second quarter and first six months of fiscal 2014 were 69.8% and 25.5%, respectively, compared to 156.5% and 27.8% for the same respective periods of fiscal 2013. The tax rate for the second quarter and first six months of fiscal 2014 was primarily driven by net operating losses of certain foreign subsidiaries without a realizable tax benefit. The second quarter and first six months of fiscal 2013 included a tax expense of $1.0 million primarily driven by nondeductible acquisition costs and net operating losses of certain foreign subsidiaries without a realizable tax benefit.

Financial Position:

Net debt at December 29, 2013 was $126.8 million (total debt of $225.0 million less $98.2 million of cash), or $101.8 million lower from the $228.7 million (total debt of $246.9 million less $18.2 million of cash) at December 30, 2012. Cash flows used in operating activities for the first six months of fiscal 2014 were $45.2 million compared to $75.4 million in fiscal 2013. The improvement in operating cash flows was primarily related to changes in working capital needs in fiscal 2014 associated with lower seasonal growth in accounts receivable and inventory due to lower production levels and planned inventory reductions. In addition, no contributions to the pension plan were made in fiscal 2014 compared to $16.2 million in the first half of fiscal 2013.

Restructuring:

The previously announced restructuring actions remain on schedule. Production of horizontal shaft engines was concluded at the Auburn, Alabama plant during the second quarter of 2014. As noted previously, pre-tax restructuring costs for the second quarter and first six months of fiscal 2014 were $2.3 million and $5.9 million, respectively. Pre-tax restructuring cost estimates for fiscal 2014 remain unchanged at $6 million to $8 million. Incremental restructuring savings for fiscal 2014 are expected to be $2 million to $4 million.   

Share Repurchase Program:

On August 8, 2012, the Board of Directors of the Company authorized up to $50 million in funds associated with the common share repurchase program with an expiration date of June 30, 2014. On January 22, 2014, the Board of Directors of the Company authorized up to an additional $50 million in funds for use in the Company's common share repurchase program with an extension of the expiration date to June 30, 2016. The common share repurchase program authorizes the purchase of shares of the Company's common stock on the open market or in private transactions from time to time, depending on market conditions and certain governing loan covenants. During the first six months of fiscal 2014, the Company repurchased 1,066,447 shares on the open market at an average price of $19.77 per share.

Outlook:

For fiscal 2014, the Company has revised its full year guidance to exclude the potential positive benefit of landed hurricanes from the upper end of the revenue and earnings guidance. In addition, the lower end of the guidance has been reduced to give effect to approximately $3.0 million of negative foreign currency fluctuations and the lack of European snow sales that are not likely to be recovered in the second half of the fiscal year. The Company now expects net income to be in a range of $48 million to $57 million or $1.00 to $1.18 per diluted share prior to the impact of any additional share repurchases and costs related to our announced restructuring actions. Our fiscal 2014 consolidated net sales are projected to be in a range of $1.88 billion to $2.0 billion. We continue to estimate that the retail market for lawn and garden products will increase 4-6% in the U.S. next season. The estimated incremental impact of exiting the sale of lawn and garden equipment through national mass retailers is approximately $10 million to $15 million of reduced sales in fiscal 2014. In addition, sales in fiscal 2013 were favorably impacted by sales of portable and standby generators in response to power outages during Hurricanes Isaac and Sandy. The upper end of our earnings projections contemplates a higher market recovery in excess of 10% for the U.S. lawn and garden market. Operating income margins are expected to improve over fiscal 2013 and be in a range of 4.5% to 4.8% and reflect the positive impacts of the restructuring actions. Interest expense and other income are estimated to be approximately $18 million and $5 million, respectively. The effective tax rate is projected to be in a range of 30% to 33% and capital expenditures are projected to be approximately $50 million to $55 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Briggs & Stratton prepares its financial statements using Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). When a company discloses material information containing non-GAAP financial measures, SEC regulations require that the disclosure include a presentation of the most directly comparable GAAP measure and a reconciliation of the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measure. Management's inclusion of non-GAAP financial measures in this release is intended to supplement, not replace, the presentation of the financial results in accordance with GAAP. Briggs & Stratton Corporation management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP financial measures, provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may, or could, have a disproportionately positive or negative impact on results in any particular period. Management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enhance the ability of investors to analyze our business trends and to understand our performance. In addition, we may utilize non-GAAP financial measures as a guide in our forecasting, budgeting and long-term planning process. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP.
