(a)

The non-GAAP financial metric, adjusted EBITDA, is presented with its corresponding GAAP metric, net income attributable to Brink's.

(b)

The “fav” represents a change greater than 100% in a direction favorable to the company or a change from a negative amount in the prior period to a positive amount in the current period. The “unfav” represents a change greater than 100% in a direction unfavorable to the company or a change from a positive amount in the prior period to negative amount in the current period.

(c)

Constant currency represents 2021 Non-GAAP results at 2020 exchange rates.

Doug Pertz, president and chief executive officer, said: “Our third-quarter non-GAAP results include double-digit growth in revenue and profits, demonstrating our continued recovery from the pandemic and our improved cost structure. Despite the pandemic’s ongoing impact on organic growth, third-quarter revenue recovered to 98% of 2019 pre-Covid levels on a comparable local currency basis. While our results in the U.S. continue to be affected by labor shortages and inflationary wage pressures, we expect these conditions to improve as we approach year-end, and expect wage inflation to be fully offset by price increases as we enter next year. On a global basis, we see encouraging trends indicating that revenue is recovering to pre-pandemic levels, though the rate of the recovery may continue to be uneven.

“Our full-year guidance remains unchanged, with revenue in a range between $4.1 billion and $4.2 billion, non-GAAP operating profit of approximately $465 million, and adjusted EBITDA of approximately $660 million. Our preliminary 2022 adjusted EBITDA target of $785 million to $825 million also remains unchanged. We anticipate revenue in 2022 will exceed the pre-Covid adjusted level of $4.55 billion. As a reference point, at 100% of adjusted pre-Covid revenue, we would expect 2022 adjusted EBITDA to be approximately $755 million with continued earnings leverage as revenue continues to grow.

“Based on our currently projected earnings and cash flow for this year and 2022, we believe repurchasing shares is an excellent investment for our shareholders. Today we announced a planned $150 million accelerated share repurchase that would represent the repurchase of approximately 5% of the company’s outstanding shares at the current share price.

“We look forward to presenting our new three-year strategic plan, including detailed financial targets through 2024, in our Investor Day presentation on December 15.”

Share Repurchase
Brink’s today announced that it intends to enter into an accelerated share repurchase ("ASR") agreement to acquire $150 million of the company’s common stock. The company expects the ASR will be substantially completed by early November. On October 27, 2021, the Brink’s board of directors also approved an additional $250 million share repurchase authorization, which expires December 31, 2023.

Conference Call
Brink’s will host a conference call on October 27 at 8:30 a.m. ET to review third-quarter results. Interested parties can listen by calling 888-349-0094 (in the U.S.) or 412-902-0124 (international).

(a)

The 2021 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 2021 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 2021. The 2021 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 2021 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 2021.

(b)

The 2021 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.

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)

Segment revenues equal our total reported non-GAAP revenues.

(d)

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.

(e)

See pages 8-9 for more information.

(f)

Attributable to Brink's.

(g)

Non-GAAP results are reconciled to applicable GAAP results on pages 10-13.

(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.

(a)

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.

The Brink’s Company and subsidiaries
Other Items Not Allocated To Segments (Unaudited)
(In millions)

Brink’s measures its segment results before income and expenses for corporate activities and for certain other items. See below for a summary of the other items not allocated to segments.

Reorganization and Restructuring
Other Restructurings
Management periodically implements restructuring actions in targeted sections of our business. As a result of these actions, we recognized $35.7 million net costs in the first nine months of 2021, primarily severance costs. Approximately $5 million of the net costs recognized in the first nine months of 2021 relate to restructuring plans approved by management in 2020. The remaining costs incurred in the first nine months of 2021 relate to restructuring plans approved by management in 2021. Substantially all of the costs from 2021 restructuring plans result from management initiatives to address the COVID-19 pandemic. We recognized $66.6 million net costs in operating profit and $0.6 million costs in interest and other nonoperating income (expense) in 2020, primarily severance costs. For the restructuring actions that have not yet been completed, we expect to incur additional costs between $5 million and $7 million in future periods.

Due to the unique circumstances around these charges, these management-directed items have not been allocated to segment results and are excluded from non-GAAP results.

Acquisitions and dispositions Certain acquisition and disposition items that are not considered part of the ongoing activities of the
business and are special in nature are consistently excluded from non-GAAP results. These items are described below:
2021 Acquisitions and Dispositions

  • Amortization expense for acquisition-related intangible assets was $35.3 million in the first nine months of 2021.

  • We incurred $8.8 million in integration costs, primarily related to G4S, in the first nine months of 2021.

  • Transaction costs related to business acquisitions were $5.4 million in the first nine months of 2021.

  • Restructuring costs related to acquisitions were $5.1 million in the first nine months of 2021.

  • Compensation expense related to the retention of key PAI employees was $1.2 million in the first nine months of 2021.

2020 Acquisitions and Dispositions

  • Amortization expense for acquisition-related intangible assets was $35.1 million in 2020.

  • We incurred $23.5 million in integration costs, primarily related to Dunbar and G4S, in 2020.

  • Transaction costs related to business acquisitions were $19.3 million in 2020.

  • Restructuring costs related to acquisitions were $4.7 million in 2020.

Argentina highly inflationary impact Beginning in the third quarter of 2018, we designated Argentina's economy as highly inflationary for accounting purposes. As a result, Argentine peso-denominated monetary assets and liabilities are now remeasured at each balance sheet date to the currency exchange rate then in effect, with currency remeasurement gains and losses recognized in earnings. In addition, nonmonetary assets retain a higher historical basis when the currency is devalued. The higher historical basis results in incremental expense being recognized when the nonmonetary assets are consumed. In the first nine months of 2021, we recognized $8.8 million in pretax charges related to highly inflationary accounting, including currency remeasurement losses of $6.6 million. In 2020, we recognized $10.7 million in pretax charges related to highly inflationary accounting, including currency remeasurement losses of $7.7 million. These amounts are excluded from non-GAAP results.

Chile antitrust matter In October 2021, the Chilean antitrust agency filed a complaint alleging that Brink’s Chile (as well as competitor companies) engaged in collusion in 2017 and 2018 and requested that the court approve a fine of $30.5 million. The Company has not had access to the investigative file nor to its evidence supporting the allegations. Based on available information to date, we recorded a charge of $9.5 million in the third quarter of 2021 in connection with this matter. Due to its special nature, this charge has not been allocated to segment results and is excluded from non-GAAP results.

Internal loss A former non-management employee in our U.S. global services operations embezzled funds from Brink's in prior years. Except for a small deductible amount, the amount of the internal loss related to the embezzlement of funds was covered by our insurance. In an effort to cover up the embezzlement, the former employee intentionally misstated the underlying accounts receivable subledger data. In 2020, we incurred an additional $0.3 million in costs related to this activity. In the third quarter of 2019, we were able to identify $4.0 million of revenues billed and collected in prior periods which had never been recorded in the general ledger. We also identified and recorded $0.3 million in bank fees, which had been incurred in prior periods. The rebuild of the subledger was substantially completed during the third quarter of 2019. Based on the reconstructed subledger, we were able to analyze and quantify the uncollected receivables from prior periods. Although w...
