Chart Industries Reports 2019 Third Quarter Results

ATLANTA, Oct. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chart Industries, Inc. (GTLS), a leading diversified global manufacturer of highly engineered equipment for the industrial gas and energy industries, today reported results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019.  Further details can be found in the supplemental presentation included with this release.  Highlights include:

  • Orders of $286.2 million included record order levels for LNG fueling stations, lasers and hydrogen, contributing to record backlog of $755.6 million.
  • Received full and final notice to proceed (“FNTP”) on Venture Global’s Calcasieu Pass Project, as well as an additional $6.6 million order for air cooled heat exchangers on the project.
  • Reported gross margin as a percent of sales of 28.3%, an increase of 150 basis points over the second quarter of 2019 (+250 bps on an adjusted basis).
  • SG&A as a percent of sales of 16.1% has improved each quarter of 2019, and on a normalized basis is 13.5% of sales, reflecting lower required SG&A through our integration activities.
  • Reported EPS of $0.51 increased from $0.41 in the second quarter of 2019.  Adjusted EPS of $0.77, a 13.2% increase over the second quarter of 2019 adjusted EPS, reflects our broad-based execution of our order pipeline and margin expansion activities.
  • Completed the acquisition of the Air-X-Changers (“AXC”) business on July 1, 2019 and identified target cost synergies totaling $29 million to be achieved within the first 12 months of ownership.
  • Projected 2020 total revenue growth of 21% to 24% (15% organic including Calcasieu Pass), and expected 2020 adjusted EPS in the base business of $4.75 to $5.25.
  • Expectation of $1.0 billion of additional big LNG orders in 2020.

Broad based global LNG infrastructure buildout, specialty markets, and significant synergies from the combination of Chart, VRV and Air-X-Changers drive continued order strength, 22% anticipated 2020 revenue growth, and further margin expansion.  Third quarter 2019 revenue of $357.8 million brings year to date organic growth to 3.2%.  Orders of $286.2 million for the third quarter contributed to total record backlog of $755.6 million, an organic increase over the end of 2018 even when excluding the Calcasieu Pass $135 million order.  

In the third quarter, we received 33 orders greater than $1 million, with 8 each in E&C Cryo, E&C FinFans and D&S West, and 9 in D&S East.  The third quarter orders of $286.2 million dollars included a $6.6 million air cooler award on the last day of the quarter, expanding our equipment content on Venture Global’s Calcasieu Pass project.  Also within the quarter, we received an order for $5 million with one customer for hydrogen, a $2.7 million dollar order for pipe related to a space application, a $9.2 million dollar order for a hydrogen recovery system in an ammonia plant, and a $7.5 million dollar order for IMB, the part of VRV that produces shell and tube heat exchangers.  Additionally, we were awarded a $23 million project for a PDH separation system project for which $1.3 million was booked in the third quarter and the remaining is expected to be booked in the fourth quarter of 2019 once full notice to proceed is given.  Also, in early October, we received verbal notification of a $9 million award on a power plant project in the Caribbean.

Global LNG infrastructure activity continues to ramp up, with LNG opportunities currently being pursued by Chart in 71 countries.  The focus of the activity is small-scale LNG (“ssLNG”), transportation and associated fueling stations.  The third quarter of 2019 was a record quarter for LNG fueling station orders, with 19 stations booked, compared to only 3 in the third quarter of 2018.  The strong third quarter of 2019 contributed to our year to date total orders for fueling stations of 41, compared to 21 year to date in 2018.  In the third quarter, we signed a Memorandum of Understand (“MOU”) with AG&P to develop LNG infrastructure in India and Southeast Asia, which included 6 LCNG stations in the third quarter in India.  These trends are expected to continue throughout 2020 and are reflected in the Distribution & Storage East (“D&S East”) backlog of $203.8 million ($165.5 million organically).  D&S East backlog and organic backlog have sequentially increased each quarter of 2019.

September was the highest order month of the quarter for E&C Cryogenics and E&C FinFans which trends well for our 2020 outlook.  While there is broad macro uncertainty toward industrials, in particular in light of the ongoing volatility in international trade and tariffs, we are confident in our underlying industrial forecast for 2020 in part because of our long-term agreements with our major industrial gas customers.  In the third quarter of 2019, we extended our agreements with two of our top three customers, covering over $85 million dollars of associated total annual revenue.  The industrial gas customers are forecasting 3% to 5% growth in 2020.  In addition to the extension of existing industrial gas LTAs, this year we have been able to secure two multi-year, sole-source agreements with key over the road trucking customers for which we expect high single digit growth in the coming four years. LNG transportation growth in Europe is robust with a forecast of over 280,000 LNG trucks by 2030.  Evidencing this trend, third quarter of 2019 LNG vehicle tank orders increased 87% over the second quarter of 2019 and were the highest quarter of the year.  Lastly, packaged gas in D&S is a leading indicator for the rest of the business.  In the third quarter, packaged gas orders were $65.6 million dollars, an increase over Q2 of 12.5% and an increase over Q3 2018 of 8.6%.

Our specialty market continues to offer additional growth for our Distribution & Storage West segment.  Third quarter 2019 specialty market orders of $46 million dollars were 56% higher than the same quarter of 2018, and 54% higher than the second quarter of 2019, with record order levels in lasers and hydrogen.  Specialty market sales of $40 million dollars in the quarter were 6% higher than the prior year.  Our specialty market applications continue to expand, with committed fourth quarter 2019 orders in water treatment, a new market.  We have already received an order for a water treatment system from the City of Denver and have several others in queue with other municipalities.

Big LNG export terminal activity continues to be an exciting prospect, and our production work has begun on Venture Global’s 10 MTPA Calcasieu Pass project for which we received our full and final notice to proceed in the third quarter of 2019.  That project totals $142 million of anticipated revenue for us to recognize between now and mid-2021 and contributes to our 22% total growth forecast in 2020 (15% organic).  Further progress toward final investment decisions (“FID”) was made on other significant big LNG order opportunities.  Tellurian and Petronet LNG entered into an expanded MOU increasing their investment in the Driftwood project to 5 MTPA, or $2.5 billion in equity investment.  This brings further momentum toward FID, which is now expected in the first half of 2020.  Driftwood and Cheniere’s Corpus Christi Stage Three have indicated that they will utilize our IPSMR® process technology, for which we recently received our 5th U.S. patent covering liquefaction, heavy hydrocarbon removal and end flash gas cold recovery.  Additionally, within Q3 2019, two new international oil companies officially validated the IPSMR® process for use within their projects, the culmination of years of work with these customers. 

We are continuing our margin expansion activities and are driving this as a key part of our continuous improvement culture.  Year to date we have executed restructuring actions that will result in $13.3 million of annualized savings beginning in 2020, unrelated to synergies from our acquisition integration efforts.  We are also well underway in executing more margin expansion in the fourth quarter of 2019, with an additional $5 million of annualized savings expected.

On July 1, 2019, we closed on the acquisition of the Air-X-Changers (“AXC”) business, for which we originally anticipated over $20 million of cost synergies within the first 12 months.  Within our first quarter of ownership, we have achieved over $12 million of the synergies, and have completed the facility consolidations, eight months ahead of schedule.  Additionally, we have identified another $9 million of cost synergies which will be achieved in addition to the $20 million originally identified, also within the first year.

“Our margin expansion activities from the past 9 months, exceeding scheduled synergies from recent acquisitions, and our multiple aspects of growth potential with no heavy reliance on any one single application or end market positions us to deliver approximately $5.00 of projected adjusted earnings per share in 2020, before any additional big LNG orders,” said Jill Evanko, Chart’s President and CEO.  “Further, we expect $1.0 billion of additional big LNG related orders in the second half of 2020 which extends our upcycle for revenue and earnings through 2023.”

Gross margin as a percent of sales of 28.3% for the third quarter of 2019 increased 150 basis points over the second quarter 2019 (26.7%).  This reflects our year to date cost cutting activities, and on an adjusted basis is 28.8%, the highest of the year.  SG&A continues to trend positively.  Similar to Chart legacy businesses, the Air-X-Changer business runs with low SG&A as a percent of sales.  SG&A of $57.5 million for the third quarter of 2019 includes restructuring and transaction related costs as well as commercial and legal settlement costs.  On a normalized basis, SG&A is $48.4 million or 13.5% of sales, the lowest since the fourth quarter of 2012.

Our net income for the third quarter of 2019 of $18.7 million is an increase over the second quarter 2019 net income of $14.4 million.  Reported earnings per share (“EPS”) of $0.51 is an increase over the second quarter 2019 EPS of $0.41.  Adjusted EPS of $0.77 for the third quarter 2019 included $7.4 million of restructuring and transaction related cost ($0.17 of EPS), $1.3 million of integration costs ($0.03 of EPS), and $2.3 of other one-time costs ($0.06 of EPS) due to commercial settlements and dilution from the convertible notes.

Third quarter 2019 adjusted EPS of $0.77 is a 13.2% increase over second quarter adjusted EPS of $0.68, which included $6.8 million of restructuring and transaction related cost ($0.23 of EPS), and $0.8 million of VRV associated integration costs ($0.02 of EPS), and dilution impact from convertible notes that are fully hedged ($0.02).

OUTLOOK 2019
Our 2019 guidance includes second half 2019 revenue and earnings from the completed Air-X-Changers acquisition and includes additional interest and share count from our completed strategic financing activities.  Our guidance assumes LNG project revenue in 2019 from the Venture Global Calcasieu Pass and Golar Gimi projects which is subject to project timing. 

We expect the fourth quarter of 2019 to be very strong on order timing, including three potential orders over $20 million each, plus increasing year-end order activity across the segments with the exception of upstream and natural gas processing.  We are updating our revenue and adjusted EPS guidance to reflect the timing of orders that will positively impact 2020.  Our revised revenue guidance is an expected range of $1.33 billion to $1.35 billion for the full year of 2019, compared to previous guidance of $1.41 billion to $1.46 billion.  We expect full year adjusted earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $2.70 to $2.90 per share, on approximately 34.7 million weighted average shares outstanding compared to our prior estimate of $2.85 to $3.20 per share, again as the result of the timing of orders which we expect to positively impact 2020.  This excludes any restructuring costs and transaction-related costs, and as such is a non-GAAP measure.  We expect our effective tax rate to be approximately 21%.  Our expected capital expenditures for 2019 continue in the range of $35 million to $40 million, which includes the build out of an LNG fuel systems production line in Europe and maintenance and productivity capital for the Air-X-Changers / E&C FinFans segment.  Our weighted average shares projection excludes any potential future dilution associated with our convertible notes.

OUTLOOK 2020
Our 2020 outlook is updated for our current views of end market growth, the expected timing on additional big LNG orders as well as the starting point for 2019 in the “base” outlook.  Splitting the outlook into two parts is important, as the base does not require any additional big LNG orders.  Further information can be found in the supplemental presentation included with this release.

  • Market Growth:  We expect blended market growth of 1% to 2%, with D&S markets averaging 3% growth and base E&C markets experiencing negative to flat trends in 2020.  The E&C markets of natural gas processing and air cooler upstream are expected to decline in 2020, partially offset by single digit growth in downstream, refining/processing and petrochemical markets.
  • Base Outlook:  Our total revenue growth is expected to be 21% to 24%, with 13% to 15% organic growth including Calcasieu Pass (7% to 9% organic excluding Calcasieu Pass).  This results in expected base revenue between $1,615 and $1,680 million.  The drivers above normal market growth include the already booked Calcasieu Pass, delivering on the Bechtel air cooled heat exchanger order, specialty markets growing over 10%, and increasing LNG infrastructure activity.  We expect full year adjusted earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $4.75 to $5.25 per share, on approximately 35.8 million weighted average shares outstanding.  This excludes any restructuring costs and transaction-related costs, and as such is a non-GAAP measure. 
  • Upside Outlook:  The upside outlook assumes booking additional big LNG orders based on current operator timelines for FID.  Specifically, the upside outlook assumes we receive formal notice to proceed (“FNTP”) on Driftwood by the end of Q2 2020, and FNTP on Plaquemines and Cheniere Corpus Stage 3 also in 2020.  In this scenario, revenue would be expected to be in the range of $1,720 million to $1,790 million, and associated adjusted earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $5.45 to $6.15, on approximately 35.8 million weighted average shares outstanding.  This excludes any restructuring costs and transaction-related costs, or any dilution associated with our convertible notes, and as such is a non-GAAP measure. 
  • Tax Rate:  We anticipate our 2020 effective tax rate to be 21%.
  • Capital Expenditures:  Capital expenditures are expected to be in the range of $35 million to $40 million, including investment in expanding our India manufacturing capabilities and completing the LNG vehicle tank line in Italy.

_______________
(1) During the third quarter of 2019, we recorded $1.5 in restructuring costs that primarily related to facility consolidation in our E&C FinFans segment, as well as departmental restructuring, including headcount reductions.  During the third quarter of 2019, we also incurred $4.3 in transaction-related costs and $1.6 in other one-time costs that primarily related to the departure and election of certain officers of the Company.  During the first half of 2019, we recorded $11.8 of restructuring costs primarily related to the consolidation of certain of our facilities and streamlining commercial activities within our Lifecycle business in our previous E&C segment and geographic realignment of manufacturing capacity in D&S East.
(2) Includes $1.7 in expense recognized in cost of sales related to inventory step-up for the first half of 2019.  We also incurred $0.8 related to AXC integration activities during the third quarter of 2019, and $0.6 and $1.8 related to VRV integration activities in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively.
(3) Includes an additional 0.59 and 1.33 shares related to the convertible notes due 2024 and associated warrants in our diluted earnings per share calculation for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively.  The associated hedge, which helps offset this dilution, cannot be taken into account under U.S. GAAP.  If the hedge could have been considered, it would have reduced the additional shares by 0.59 and 1.04 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively.
(4) Includes $1.7 related to the accelerated tax impacts of closing a China facility.

Adjusted earnings per diluted share is not a measure of financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to earnings per share in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  Management believes that adjusted earnings per share facilitates useful period-to-period comparisons of our financial results and this information is used by us in evaluating internal performance.  Our calculation of this non-GAAP measure may not be comparable to the calculations of similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
