RICHMOND, Va., Feb. 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Brink’s Company (NYSE:BCO), the global leader in total cash management, route-based secure logistics and payment solutions, today announced fourth-quarter and full-year results.

Doug Pertz, president and chief executive officer, said: “Today we reported record revenue and operating profit for both the fourth-quarter and full-year of 2021. These results clearly demonstrate the resiliency of our business and the persistent strength of cash usage around the world. We exited 2021 with substantially higher revenue and greater profitability than 2019, better positioned for the future. Additionally, 2022 revenue is expected to return to at least pro-forma pre-pandemic levels. Our confidence is based on expectations of continued recovery in retail markets, higher than historical price increases, accelerating contributions from our Strategy 2.0 digital solutions, and the continued execution of our productivity and efficiency initiatives.

“The 2022 guidance we are providing today reflects the strong growth rates and margin improvement targets we presented at our 2021 Investor Day. This guidance includes revenue growth of 8% to 11% and operating profit growth of 16% to 23%, with margin improvement of approximately 100 basis points.

“Our 2022 guidance represents significant value creation since the pre-pandemic period, and strong progress toward achieving our 3-year strategic plan targets. Our expected 2022 results include core business revenue at 2019 levels or higher, plus approximately $900 million of revenue from completed acquisitions, and cumulative margin improvement of approximately 150 basis points from pre-pandemic levels.”

Management’s 2022 guidance is consistent with the financial targets provided at its 2021 Investor Day, updated to reflect foreign exchange rates as of December 31, 2021. See page 3 for details.

Fourth-quarter and full-year results are summarized in the following tables.

(a) The 2022 Non-GAAP outlook amounts exclude certain forecasted Non-GAAP adjusting items, such as intangible asset amortization and U.S. retirement plan costs. We have not forecasted the impact of highly inflationary accounting on our Argentina operations in 2022 or other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items for which the timing and amounts are currently under review, such as future restructuring actions. We have also not forecasted changes in cash held for customer obligations or proceeds from the sale of property, equipment and investments in 2022. The 2022 Non-GAAP outlook amounts for operating profit, EPS from continuing operations, free cash flow before dividends and Adjusted EBITDA cannot be reconciled to GAAP without unreasonable effort. We cannot reconcile these amounts to GAAP because we are unable to accurately forecast the impact of highly inflationary accounting on our Argentina operations in 2022 or other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items for which the timing and amounts are currently under review, such as future restructuring actions. We are also unable to forecast changes in cash held for customer obligations or proceeds from the sale of property, equipment and investments in 2022.
(b) The 2022 GAAP outlook excludes any forecasted impact from highly inflationary accounting on our Argentina operations as well as other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items for which the timing and amounts are currently under review, such as future restructuring actions.
(c) Non-GAAP constant currency amounts represent the Outlook at prior period exchange rates.
(d) On January 4, 2022, the U.S. Treasury published in the Federal Register final foreign tax credit regulations. The impact of new foreign tax credit regulations on 2022 income tax expense is currently under review and is not included in the 2022 guidance.
(e) Excludes our initial investment in France to support the take-over of the BPCE ATM network.

Amounts may not add due to rounding.

(a) Non-GAAP amounts include the impact of prior year comparable period results for acquired and disposed businesses. GAAP results also include the impact of acquisition-related intangible amortization, restructuring and other charges, and disposition related gains/losses.
(b) The amounts in the “Currency” column consist of the effects of Argentina devaluations under highly inflationary accounting and the sum of monthly currency changes. Monthly currency changes represent the accumulation throughout the year of the impact on current period results from changes in foreign currency rates from the prior year period.
(c) Corporate expenses are not allocated to segment results. Corporate expenses include salaries and other costs to manage the global business and to perform activities required of public companies.
(d) See pages 8-9 for more information.
(e) Non-GAAP results are reconciled to applicable GAAP results on pages 10-13.
(f) Attributable to Brink’s.
(g) Segment revenues equal our total reported non-GAAP revenues.
(h) In the first quarter of 2021, we changed the method for calculating the allowance for doubtful accounts of the North America segment’s U.S. business. This change in method resulted in a $12.3 million operating profit increase in the segment, which was offset by a $12.3 million increase to Corporate expense, resulting in no impact to consolidated operating profit for the quarter. Historically, all Brink’s business units followed an internal Company policy for determining an allowance for doubtful accounts and the allowances were then reconciled to the required U.S. GAAP estimated consolidated allowance, with any differences reported as part of Corporate expense. Other than for the U.S. business, the reconciling differences were not significant. We changed the U.S. calculation of the allowance in order to more closely align it with the U.S. GAAP consolidated calculation and to minimize reconciling differences, resulting in the offsetting $12.3 million adjustments to align the methods.
