  • Signed definitive agreement to acquire extremity product lines with annual revenue of $20 million

ANNAPOLIS JUNCTION, MD, Oct. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Colfax Corporation (NYSE: CFX), a leading diversified technology company, today announced its financial results for the third quarter of 2020.

The Company reported net income from continuing operations of $16.0 million, or $0.12 per share, in the quarter, compared to $0.02 in the prior year quarter. On an adjusted basis, the Company reported earnings of $0.41 per diluted share, compared to $0.50 in the third quarter of 2019. Adjustments to reported earnings are included in this release.

Colfax reported third quarter net sales of $806 million, 30% sequentially higher than second quarter 2020 net sales. Compared to the prior year quarter, sales declined 5% due to the current year impact on demand from COVID-19. Excluding the impact from currency translation adjustments, organic sales decreased 3% year-over-year. The Company also reported third quarter adjusted EBITA of $108 million, or 13.4% of sales, as compared with $126 million, or 14.9% of sales, in the prior year quarter. During the quarter, the Company generated operating cash flow of $80 million and free cash flow of $49 million.

“We are pleased to report significantly stronger sequential results across both of our segments,” said Matt Trerotola, Colfax President and CEO. “Customer demand has returned to healthier levels and our teams are accelerating our recovery momentum. MedTech’s rapid return to growth and FabTech’s strong decrementals contributed to solid earnings and cash flow this quarter, and we expect further sequential improvement in the fourth quarter. We are confident that our transformed portfolio, proven business management system, and innovation path will compound value through sales, profit and cash flow expansion.”

The Company also announced the signing of an agreement to acquire certain extremity product lines from Stryker Corporation for cash consideration of $15 million. Sales are expected to be approximately $20 million in the first full year following the close of the transaction, which is expected to occur in the fourth quarter of 2020, subject to customary closing conditions.

“Our strategic growth program is active, and this acquisition is a great example of one of the many exciting opportunities we have in our pipeline to expand and strengthen our existing businesses,” said Mr. Trerotola. “By acquiring these core technologies, we will broaden our successful Reconstructive product line and gain entry into the adjacent high-growth foot and ankle market.”

Colfax’s Fabrication Technology segment sales decreased 9% in the quarter on a reported basis and decreased 6% organically versus the prior year period, and reported adjusted EBITA margins of 14.7%, compared to 15.2% in the prior year. Medical Technology segment sales increased 2% in the quarter on a reported basis and 1% organically versus the prior year period, including a 2% benefit from nonrecurring sales of personal protective equipment. The segment also reported adjusted EBITA margins of 15.9%, compared to 18.5% in the prior year. Medical Technology segment adjusted EBITA margins included higher supply chain costs related to COVID-19.

The Company expects continued sequential improvement in the fourth quarter of 2020, with adjusted earnings from continuing operations of $0.45 to $0.50 per diluted share.

Conference Call and Webcast

The Company will hold a conference call to discuss these results beginning at 8:00 a.m. Eastern today, which will be open to the public by calling +1-877-303-7908 (U.S. callers) and +1-678-373-0875 (International callers) and referencing the conference ID number 1045229 and through webcast via Colfax’s website www.colfaxcorp.com under the “Investors” section. Access to a supplemental slide presentation can also be found at the Colfax website under the same heading. Both the audio of this call and the slide presentation will be archived on the website later today and will be available until the next quarterly call.

About Colfax Corporation

Colfax Corporation is a leading diversified technology company that provides orthopedic and fabrication technology products and services to customers around the world, principally under the DJO and ESAB brands. Colfax believes that its brands are among the most highly recognized in each of the markets that it serves. The Company uses its Colfax Business System (“CBS”), a comprehensive set of tools, processes and values, to create superior value for customers, shareholders and associates. Colfax’s common stock is traded on the NYSE under the ticker “CFX.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Adjustments

Colfax has provided in this press release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“non-GAAP”). These non-GAAP financial measures may include one or more of the following: adjusted net income from continuing operations, adjusted net income margin from continuing operations, adjusted net income per diluted share from continuing operations, adjusted EBITA (earnings before interest, taxes and amortization), adjusted EBITA margin, organic sales growth, and free cash flow. Colfax also provides adjusted EBITA and adjusted EBITA margin on a segment basis.

Adjusted net income from continuing operations represents net income (loss) from continuing operations excluding restructuring and other related charges, European Union Medical Device Regulation (“MDR”) and other costs, debt extinguishment charges, acquisition-related amortization and other non-cash charges, and strategic transaction costs. Colfax also presents adjusted net income margin from continuing operations, which is subject to the same adjustments as adjusted net income from continuing operations.

Adjusted net income per diluted share from continuing operations represents adjusted income from continuing operations divided by the number of adjusted diluted weighted average shares. Both GAAP and non-GAAP diluted net income per share data is computed based on weighted average shares outstanding and, if there is net income from continuing operations (rather than net loss) during the period, the dilutive impact of share equivalents outstanding during the period. Diluted weighted average shares outstanding and adjusted diluted weighted average shares outstanding are calculated on the same basis except for the net income or loss figure used in determining whether to include such dilutive impact.

Adjusted EBITA represents net income (loss) from continuing operations excluding restructuring and other related charges, MDR and other costs, acquisition-related amortization and other non-cash charges, and strategic transaction costs, as well as income tax expense(benefit) and interest expense, net. Colfax presents adjusted EBITA margin, which is subject to the same adjustments as adjusted EBITA. Further, Colfax presents adjusted EBITA (and adjusted EBITA margin) on a segment basis, where we exclude the impact of strategic transaction costs and acquisition-related amortization and other non-cash charges from segment operating income.

Core or organic sales growth (decline) excludes the impact of acquisitions and foreign exchange rate fluctuations.

Free cash flow represents cash flow from operating activities less purchases of property, plant and equipment.

Decremental margin represents the change in Adjusted EBITA divided by the change in Net sales.

These non-GAAP financial measures assist Colfax management in comparing its operating performance over time because certain items may obscure underlying business trends and make comparisons of long-term performance difficult, as they are of a nature and/or size that occur with inconsistent frequency or relate to discrete restructuring plans that are fundamentally different from the ongoing productivity improvements of the Company. Colfax management also believes that presenting these measures allows investors to view its performance using the same measures that the Company uses in evaluating its financial and business performance and trends.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information calculated in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures presented above to GAAP results has been provided in the financial tables included in this press release.

In this document, Colfax presents forward-looking adjusted EPS guidance. Colfax does not provide such outlook on a GAAP basis because changes in the items that Colfax excludes from GAAP to calculate the adjusted EPS measures can be dependent on future events that are less capable of being controlled or reliably predicted by management and are not part of Colfax’s routine operating activities. Additionally, management does not forecast many of the excluded items for internal use and therefore cannot create or rely on outlook done on a GAAP basis.

CAUTIONARY NOTE CONCERNING FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

This press release may contain forward-looking statements, including forward-looking statements within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements concerning Colfax’s plans, objectives, expectations and intentions and other statements that are not historical or current fact. Forward-looking statements are based on Colfax’s current expectations and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause Colfax’s results to differ materially from current expectations include, but are not limited to, risks related to the impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic, including actions by governments, businesses and individuals in response to the situation, such as the scope and duration of the outbreak, the nature and effectiveness of government actions and restrictive measures implemented in response, material delays and cancellations of medical procedures, supply chain disruptions, the impact on creditworthiness and financial viability of customers, and other impacts on Colfax’s business and ability to execute business continuity plans, and the other factors detailed in Colfax’s reports filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), including its most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q under the caption “Risk Factors,” as well as the other risks discussed in Colfax’s filings with the SEC. In addition, these statements are based on assumptions that are subject to change. This press release speaks only as of the date hereof. Colfax disclaims any duty to update the information herein.
