Fortive Reports Third Quarter 2020 Results

·27 min read

Fortive Corporation ("Fortive") (NYSE: FTV) today announced results for the third quarter 2020.

For the third quarter ended September 25, 2020, net earnings from continuing operations attributable to common stockholders were $208.5 million. For the same period, adjusted net earnings from continuing operations were $338.5 million. Diluted net earnings per share from continuing operations for the third quarter ended September 25, 2020 were $0.61. For the same period, adjusted diluted net earnings per share from continuing operations were $0.94.

For the third quarter of 2020, revenues from continuing operations increased 2.3% year-over-year to $1.9 billion, which reflected a decline in core revenue of 0.1%.

James A. Lico, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are pleased with our third quarter results, as solid execution across the portfolio delivered revenue well ahead of our initial guidance, a return to year-over-year growth in operating profit, and an 8% year-over-year increase in adjusted diluted net earnings per share. While the operating environment remained challenging in Q3, we continued to leverage the power of the Fortive Business System to generate strong core operating margin expansion and free cash flow, while prioritizing growth investments across our platforms to drive continued share gains."

Mr. Lico continued, "Consistent with our approach in recent quarters, we are not providing full guidance for the fourth quarter. In terms of additional color, we anticipate total revenue from continuing operations in the fourth quarter will increase by 0% to 3% on a year-over-year basis."

Mr. Lico added, "We continue to see the benefit of the increased portfolio resilience established through our capital allocation activities over the past four years. Despite some near term uncertainty, our consistent free cash flow, strong M&A pipeline, and an expanding set of organic innovation capabilities position us well to capitalize on the many opportunities ahead of us."

Fortive will discuss results and outlook during its quarterly investor conference call today starting at 5:30 p.m. ET. The call and an accompanying slide presentation will be webcast on the "Investors" section of Fortive’s website, www.fortive.com, under "Events & Presentations." A replay of the webcast will be available at the same location shortly after the conclusion of the presentation and will remain available until the next quarterly earnings call.

The conference call can be accessed by dialing 844-443-2871 within the U.S. or by dialing 213-660-0916 outside the U.S. a few minutes before 5:30 p.m. ET and notifying the operator that you are dialing in for Fortive’s earnings conference call (access code 6999945). A replay of the conference call will be available two hours after the completion of the call until Tuesday, November 10, 2020.

VONTIER SEPARATION

On October 9, 2020 (the "Distribution Date"), Fortive completed the separation of its Industrial Technologies segment by distributing 80.1% of the outstanding shares of Vontier Corporation ("Vontier"), the entity incorporated to hold such businesses, to Fortive stockholders (the "Separation") on a pro rata basis. To effect the Separation, Fortive distributed to its stockholders two shares of Vontier common stock for every five shares of Fortive’s common stock outstanding held on September 25, 2020, the record date for the distribution, with Fortive retaining 19.9% of the shares of Vontier common stock immediately following the Separation. Fortive currently plans to divest its 19.9% retained shares in Vontier after the spin-off in a tax-efficient manner no later than twelve months after the Distribution Date. As the disposition occurred during the fourth fiscal quarter of 2020, Fortive will classify Vontier as a discontinued operation in its financial statements beginning in the fourth quarter of 2020. The results of our Industrial Technologies segment are included in continuing operations for the periods ended September 25, 2020.

DIVESTITURE OF THE A&S BUSINESS

On October 1, 2018, Fortive completed the previously announced split-off of four of our operating companies (the "A&S Business") and the operating results and related assets and liabilities of the A&S Business are presented as discontinued operations for all periods.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

In addition to the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this earnings release also references "adjusted net earnings," "adjusted diluted net earnings per share," and "core revenue," which are non-GAAP financial measures. The reasons why we believe these measures, when used in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures, provide useful information to investors, how management uses such non-GAAP financial measures, a reconciliation of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures and other information relating to these measures are included in the supplemental reconciliation schedule attached. The non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the GAAP financial measures, but should instead be read in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measures used by Fortive in this release may be different from similarly-titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

FORTIVE CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
AND OTHER INFORMATION

Adjusted Net Earnings from Continuing Operations and Adjusted Diluted Net Earnings per Share from Continuing Operations

We disclose the non-GAAP measures of historical adjusted net earnings from continuing operations and historical adjusted diluted net earnings per share from continuing operations, which to the extent applicable, make the following adjustments to GAAP net earnings and GAAP diluted net earnings per share:

  • Excluding on a pretax basis amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets;

  • Excluding on a pretax basis acquisition and other transaction costs deemed significant ("Transaction Costs");

  • Excluding on a pretax basis the effect of deferred revenue and inventory fair value adjustments related to significant acquisitions;

  • Excluding on a pretax basis the effect of earnings or loss from our equity method investments;

  • Excluding on a pretax basis the effect of the gain on the disposition of the Tektronix Video Business,

  • Excluding on a pretax basis the non-cash interest expense associated with our 0.875% convertible senior notes;

  • Excluding on a pretax basis the non-recurring gain on the disposition of assets;

  • Excluding on a pretax basis (to the extent tax deductible) charge for goodwill impairment;

  • Excluding the tax effect (to the extent tax deductible) of the adjustments noted above. The tax effect of such adjustments was calculated by applying our overall estimated effective tax rate to the pretax amount of each adjustment (unless the nature of the item and/or the tax jurisdiction in which the item has been recorded requires application of a specific tax rate or tax treatment, in which case the tax effect of such item is estimated by applying such specific tax rate or tax treatment). We expect to apply our overall estimated effective tax rate to each adjustment going forward;

  • Excluding discrete tax and other tax-related adjustments resulting from internal reorganizations effectuated in connection with the separation of Vontier;

  • Including the impact of the assumed conversion of our Mandatory Convertible Preferred Stock.

Acquisition and Divestiture Related Items

While we have a history of acquisition and divestiture activity, we do not acquire and divest of businesses and assets on a predictable cycle. The amount of an acquisition’s purchase price allocated to intangible assets and related amortization term and the deferred revenue and inventory fair value adjustments are unique to each acquisition and can vary significantly from acquisition to acquisition. In addition, the Transaction Costs and non-recurring gain on disposition of assets are unique to each transaction, are impacted from period to period depending on the number of acquisitions or divestitures evaluated, pending or completed during such period, and the complexity of such transactions. We adjust for, and identify as significant, Transaction Costs, acquisition related fair value adjustments to deferred revenue and inventory, and corresponding restructuring charges primarily related to acquisitions, in each case, incurred in a given period, if we determine that such costs and adjustments exceed the range of our typical transaction costs and adjustments, respectively, in a given period. We believe, however, that it is important for investors to understand that such intangible assets contribute to revenue generation and that intangible assets and deferred revenue and inventory fair value adjustments related to past acquisitions will recur in future periods until such intangible assets and deferred revenue and inventory fair value adjustments, as applicable, have been fully amortized.

Equity Method Investments

We adjust for the effect of earnings from our equity method investments over which we do not exercise control over the operations or the resulting earnings. We believe that this adjustment provides our investors with additional insight into our operational performance. However, it should be noted that earnings from our equity method investments will recur in future periods while we maintain such investments.

Non-cash Interest Expense

In June 2018, we issued $1.38 billion in aggregate liquidation preference of shares of our 5.00% Mandatory Convertible Preferred Stock ("MCPS"). Dividends on the MCPS are payable on a cumulative basis at an annual rate of 5.00% on the liquidation preference of $1,000 per share. Unless earlier converted, each share of the MCPS will automatically convert on July 1, 2021 into between, after giving effect to the prior anti-dilution adjustment, 10.9041 and 13.3575 shares of our common stock, subject to further anti-dilution adjustments. The number of shares of our common stock issuable on conversion of the Mandatory Convertible Preferred Stock will be determined based on the average volume weighted average price ("VWAP") per share of our common stock over the 20 consecutive trading day period beginning on and including the 22nd scheduled trading day immediately preceding July 1, 2021. For the purposes of calculating adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share, we have excluded the MCPS dividend and, for the purposes of adjusted earnings per share, assumed the "if-converted" method of share dilution (the incremental shares of common stock deemed outstanding applying the "if-converted" method of share dilution, the "MCPS Converted Shares"). We believe that using the "if-converted" method provides additional insight to investors on the potential impact of the MCPS once they are converted into common stock no later than July 1, 2021.

On February 22, 2019, we issued $1.4 billion in aggregate principal amount of our 0.875% Convertible Senior Notes due 2022 (the "Convertible Notes"), including $187.5 million in aggregate principal amount resulting from an exercise in full of an over-allotment option. The Convertible Notes bear interest at a rate of 0.875% per year, payable semiannually in arrears on February 15 and August 15 of each year, beginning on August 15, 2019. The Notes mature on February 15, 2022, unless earlier repurchased or converted in accordance with their terms prior to such date.

Of the proceeds received from the issuance of the Convertible Notes, $1.3 billion was classified as debt and $102.2 million was classified as equity, using an assumed effective interest rate of 3.38%. We recognize interest expense using the 3.38% assumed rate, and pay interest to holders of the notes at a coupon rate of 0.875%. We believe that adjusting for the non-cash imputed interest expense between the assumed rate and coupon rate provides additional insight into our cash interest expense.

Goodwill Impairment

In connection with management’s updated forecast for the Telematics reporting unit that indicated a decline in sales and operating profit to levels lower than previously forecasted, due in large part to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, we determined that the carrying value of the Telematics reporting unit was in excess of the estimated fair value during the first quarter of fiscal 2020, resulting in an impairment charge (the "Telematics Impairment Charge"). Because the impairment charge is a non-cash expense that does not arise in the ordinary course of our business and is not indicative of our ongoing operating costs in a given period, we adjust for such impairment charges to provide additional insight for comparison of our operating results over time. Substantially all of the Telematics Impairment Charge is not tax deductible.

Discrete Restructuring Costs

We will exclude costs incurred pursuant to discrete restructuring plans that are fundamentally different (in terms of the size, strategic nature and planning requirements, as well as the inconsistent frequency, of such plans) from the ongoing productivity improvements that result from application of the Fortive Business System. Because these restructuring plans will be incremental to the fundamental activities that arise in the ordinary course of our business and we believe are not indicative of our ongoing operating costs in a given period, we will exclude these costs to facilitate a more consistent comparison of operating results over time.

Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors by reflecting additional ways of viewing aspects of our operations that, when reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measure, help our investors to understand the long-term profitability trends of our business, and facilitate comparisons of our operational performance and profitability to prior and future periods and to our peers.

These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a replacement for or superior to, the comparable GAAP measures, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Core Revenue

We use the term "core revenue" when referring to a corresponding GAAP revenue measure, excluding (1) the impact from acquired businesses and (2) the impact of currency translation. References to sales attributable to acquisitions or acquired businesses refer to GAAP sales from acquired businesses recorded prior to the first anniversary of the acquisition less the amount of sales attributable to certain divested businesses or product lines not considered discontinued operations prior to the first anniversary of the divestiture. The portion of sales attributable to the impact of currency translation is calculated as the difference between (a) the period-to-period change in sales (excluding sales impact from acquired businesses) and (b) the period-to-period change in sales (excluding sales impact from acquired businesses) after applying the current period foreign exchange rates to the prior year period. This non-GAAP measure should be considered in addition to, and not as a replacement for or superior to, the comparable GAAP measure, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Management believes that this non-GAAP measure provides useful information to investors by helping identify underlying growth trends in our business and facilitating comparisons of our revenue performance with prior and future periods and to our peers. We exclude the effect of acquisition and divestiture-related items because the nature, size and number of such transactions can vary dramatically from period to period and between us and our peers. We exclude the effect of currency translation from sales measures because currency translation is not under management’s control and is subject to volatility. We believe that such exclusions, when presented with the corresponding GAAP measures, may assist in assessing the business trends and making comparisons of long-term performance.
