·18 mins read
  • First-quarter 2020 net earnings per share (EPS) of $0.00, compared with 2019 EPS of $0.84; Adjusted 2020 EPS of $1.04, up 18.2 percent compared with 2019 adjusted EPS of $0.88

  • First-quarter 2020 revenues of $674.7 million, up 3 percent compared to 2019, up 4.3 percent on an organic basis

  • First-quarter 2020 operating margin of 4.3 percent, compared with 2019 operating margin of 16.5 percent; Adjusted operating margin of 19 percent, increased 190 basis points compared with 2019 adjusted operating margin of 17.1 percent

  • Previously withdrew 2020 outlook; Company will provide update when visibility in the global markets returns to more predictable levels

Allegion plc (NYSE: ALLE), a leading global provider of security products and solutions, today reported first-quarter 2020 net revenues of $674.7 million and net income of $0.4 million, or $0.00 per share. Excluding charges related to restructuring and acquisitions, as well as goodwill and indefinite-lived trade name impairments, adjusted net earnings were $97.4 million, or $1.04 per share, up 18.2 percent when compared with first-quarter 2019 adjusted EPS of $0.88. Reported net earnings for first-quarter 2020 include $96.3 million ($1.01 per share) in non-cash charges related to goodwill and indefinite-lived trade name impairments for our non-U.S. operations, predominantly related to COVID-19 and expected future impacts.

"Leading into the COVID-19 pandemic, the business, particularly in the Americas, was performing very well," said David D. Petratis, Allegion chairman, president and CEO. "The organic growth and adjusted margin expansion we experienced in the first quarter reflect Allegion’s solid underlying fundamentals, which include the strength and adaptability of our supply chain and our legacy brands. Those fundamentals will serve us well as the global pandemic subsides."

First-quarter 2020 net revenues increased 3 percent when compared to the prior-year period (up 4.3 percent on an organic basis). Organic growth was led by the Americas region, at 8.2 percent, offset by weakness in EMEIA and Asia Pacific, which experienced general weakness in end markets as well as initial impacts from COVID-19. Reported revenues reflect solid pricing and good Americas volume that more than offset impacts from weaker markets in the other regions, foreign currency and divestitures.

First-quarter 2020 operating income was $28.9 million, a decrease of $79.1 million or 73.2 percent compared to 2019. The decrease is related to the $96.3 million in charges from goodwill and indefinite-lived trade name impairments. Adjusted operating income in first-quarter 2020 was $128.2 million, representing an increase of $16.1 million or 14.4 percent compared to 2019.

First-quarter 2020 operating margin was 4.3 percent, compared with 16.5 percent in 2019. The adjusted operating margin in first-quarter 2020 was 19 percent, compared with 17.1 percent in 2019. The 190-basis-point increase in adjusted operating margin is driven primarily by strong volume leverage in the Americas, as well as price and productivity exceeding inflation.

The Americas segment revenues increased 7.7 percent (up 8.2 percent on an organic basis). The revenue growth was driven by solid pricing and strong volume. Both the non-residential and residential businesses saw high-single digit growth in the quarter. The Americas also experienced electronics growth of 12 percent in the quarter.

The EMEIA segment revenues were down 9.1 percent (down 6.2 percent on an organic basis), reflecting softer end markets across the region, COVID-19 impacts experienced late in the quarter, effects from the Turkey divestiture last year and unfavorable foreign currency.

The Asia-Pacific segment revenues decreased 11.1 percent (down 4.9 percent on an organic basis). The revenue decline in the quarter was driven by continued weakness in Australian end markets and COVID-19 impacts, as well as unfavorable currency effects.

Restructuring

On April 10, 2020, the company announced that it expects to record restructuring charges of $30 to $35 million in total, of which $20 to $25 million are expected to be incurred during 2020 with the remainder to be incurred during 2021. These initiatives will be implemented across several businesses and functions outside the United States and are intended to optimize and simplify the company’s non-U.S. operations and cost structure.

Additional Items

Interest expense for first-quarter 2020 was $12.9 million, down from $13.7 million for first-quarter 2019.

Other expense net for first-quarter 2020 was $4 million, compared to other income net of $1.1 million in the same period of 2019.

The company’s effective tax rate for first-quarter 2020 was 95.8 percent, compared with 15.8 percent in 2019. The company’s adjusted effective tax rate for first-quarter 2020 was 12.4 percent, compared with 16 percent in 2019. The increase in the effective tax rate compared to 2019 is primarily due to the unfavorable tax impact related to the goodwill and indefinite-lived trade name impairment charges. The decrease in adjusted effective tax rate is related to the favorable benefit of excess share-based compensation deductions.

Cash Flow and Liquidity

Year-to-date 2020 available cash flow was $19 million, an increase of $43.9 million versus the prior year. The year-over-year increase in available cash flow is due to higher net earnings (excluding non-cash impairment charges), improvements in net working capital and slightly lower capital expenditures.

The company ended first-quarter 2020 with cash and cash equivalents of $245.3 million, as well as total debt of $1,431.4 million.

Share Repurchase

During first-quarter 2020, the company repurchased approximately 0.9 million shares for approximately $94.1 million under previously authorized share-repurchase programs.

2020 Outlook

The company previously withdrew its 2020 outlook for revenue and EPS due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as its impact on demand and the supply chain.

"During this time of uncertainty, we remain deeply committed to do what’s right for our employees, customers and the communities where we operate, as well as our business health and essential critical infrastructure. We expect the COVID-19 pandemic will cause near-term negative financial impacts to revenue, income and cash flow for our business, which is why we are taking proactive measures – such as reductions in discretionary spending, eliminating non-essential investment spend, implementing a hiring freeze and temporarily suspending share repurchases – to help mitigate those impacts. We will continue to assess the global market landscape during these volatile times and will provide an outlook when we have more visibility," Petratis added.

Conference Call Information

On Thursday, April 23, 2020, David D. Petratis, chairman, president and CEO, and Patrick Shannon, senior vice president and chief financial officer, will conduct a conference call for analysts and investors, beginning at 8 a.m. ET, to review the company's results.

A real-time, listen-only webcast of the conference call will be broadcast live online. Individuals wishing to listen may access the call through the company's website at https://investor.allegion.com.

Non-GAAP Measures

The company presents these non-GAAP measures because management believes they provide useful perspective of the company’s underlying business results, trends and a more comparable measure of period-over-period results.
