PITTSBURGH, Aug. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Kennametal Inc. (KMT) (the "Company") today announced fourth quarter and fiscal 2019 results. For the fourth quarter, the Company reported EPS of $0.74, compared with $0.83 the prior year quarter. The current quarter adjusted EPS was $0.84, compared with $0.87 in the prior year quarter. For fiscal 2019, the Company reported EPS of $2.90, compared with $2.42 in the prior year. Adjusted EPS was $3.02 in the current year, compared with $2.65 in the prior year.

"We posted strong margin improvement in fiscal 2019 on moderate organic sales growth, reflecting increasing progress on our simplification/modernization initiatives," said Christopher Rossi, President and Chief Executive Officer. "A key milestone of those initiatives was the recent announcement of the intended closure of four of our facilities, which will drive further structural benefits and improve operational efficiency. We also continued to gain traction on our growth initiatives in general engineering and aerospace, with aerospace growing by double digits for the sixth consecutive quarter."

Rossi continued "Against this backdrop of year-over-year progress, we saw increased softening in most of our end-markets late in the year, which put pressure on our fourth quarter results. Our expectation is that this challenging macro environment will continue into the first half of fiscal 2020. Nevertheless, we will stay focused on the things we can control and execute our plan to improve long-term profitability."

Fiscal 2019 Fourth Quarter Key Developments

Sales were $604 million compared with $646 million in the same quarter last year. Sales decreased by 7 percent, driven by 4 percent unfavorable currency exchange impact, 2 percent organic decline and a 1 percent decrease due to fewer business days.

In connection with the Company's simplification/modernization initiative, pre-tax restructuring and related charges were $10 million, or $0.11 per share, and incremental pre-tax benefits from simplification/modernization restructuring were approximately $3 million in the quarter. The charges are net of a $5 million gain from the sale of the Madison, AL manufacturing facility, which was previously closed as part of our simplification/modernization restructuring programs. Annualized run-rate pre-tax benefits of approximately $15 million have been achieved in connection with these substantially completed simplification/modernization initiatives.

Operating income was $85 million, or 14.1 percent margin, compared with $94 million, or 14.5 percent margin, in the same quarter last year. Adjusted operating income was $95 million, or 15.8 percent margin, compared with $99 million, or 15.4 percent margin, in the prior year quarter. The decrease in adjusted operating income was driven by unfavorable volume-related labor and fixed cost absorption in certain facilities in part due to simplification/modernization efforts in progress and unfavorable currency exchange, partially offset by incremental simplification/modernization benefits and lower compensation expense.

The reported effective tax rate (ETR) was 21.0 percent and the adjusted ETR was 21.0 percent, compared to reported ETR of 21.1 percent and adjusted ETR of 22.1 percent in the prior year quarter.

Reported EPS in the current quarter includes restructuring and related charges of $0.11 and a discrete benefit of $0.01 from the release of a valuation allowance on Australian deferred tax assets. Reported EPS in the prior year quarter includes restructuring and related charges of $0.07 and a discrete benefit related to U.S. tax reform of $0.03.

Fiscal 2019 Key Developments

Sales of $2,375 million grew slightly from $2,368 million in the prior year. Organic sales growth of 3 percent was offset by unfavorable currency exchange of 3 percent.

Operating income was $329 million, or 13.8 percent margin, compared with $290 million, or 12.3 percent margin, in the prior year. Adjusted operating income was $346 million, or 14.6 percent margin, compared with $306 million, or 12.9 percent margin, in the prior year. Adjusted operating income increased primarily due to organic sales growth, incremental simplification/modernization benefits, favorable mix and lower compensation expense, partially offset by unfavorable volume-related labor and fixed cost absorption in certain facilities in part due to simplification/modernization efforts in progress, higher raw material costs and unfavorable currency exchange. Price realization exceeded raw material cost inflation. For the year, simplification/modernization benefits improved incrementally by approximately $40 million.

Net cash flow provided by operating activities in fiscal 2019 was $301 million compared to $277 million in the prior year. Free operating cash flow (FOCF) was $99 million compared to $121 million in the prior year period. The change in FOCF was driven primarily by greater net capital expenditures related to simplification/modernization initiatives, partially offset by increased cash flow from operations before changes in certain other assets and liabilities.

Ongoing Simplification/Modernization Restructuring

As previously announced, the Company initiated several restructuring actions associated with its ongoing simplification/modernization program. These proposed actions are expected to reduce structural costs, improve operational efficiency and position the Company for long-term profitable growth. These restructurings and proposed facility closures in fiscal 2020 (FY20 Restructuring Actions) are currently estimated to deliver annualized savings of $35 to $40 million and $55 to $65 million in pre-tax charges.

Fiscal 2021 proposed restructuring and facility closures (FY21 Restructuring Actions) would result in further structural cost reductions with estimated annualized savings of $25 to $30 million. Most of these savings would be achieved in fiscal 2021 with full run rate savings being realized in fiscal 2022. The Company is expected to incur pre-tax charges of $60 to $75 million through fiscal 2020 and 2021 for this restructuring. These charges are primarily cash with the majority expected to be spent in fiscal 2021.

"Fiscal 2020 will be a transition year as we execute some of our most complex simplification/modernization projects," said Rossi. "As we consolidate plants, move products and manage through the disruption that comes with a transition of this scale, we expect temporary cost headwinds in the first half. Those headwinds are expected to abate in the second half as certain plant closures are completed."

Outlook

The Company anticipates end market conditions will continue to be a headwind in the first half of fiscal 2020 with growth expected to resume in the second half. Accordingly, the Company expects organic sales growth to be essentially flat in the range of negative 2 percent to positive 2 percent, predicated on the transportation and energy end markets returning to modest growth in the second half of fiscal 2020.

Due to the recent and significant decrease in tungsten prices, the Company expects a margin headwind in the Infrastructure segment during the first half as contractual pricing resets to reflect the lower market price.

Adjusted EPS is expected to be between $2.80 and $3.20. The Company anticipates that approximately two-thirds of adjusted EPS will be generated in the second half of the fiscal year as a result of the market conditions, recent decline in tungsten prices and timing of the FY20 Restructuring Actions, which include the proposed plant closures.

Capital spending is anticipated to remain elevated in support of simplification/modernization at $240 to $260 million. Free operating cash flow is expected to be $75 to $100 million given continued capital investments and cash payments related to the FY20 and FY21 Restructuring Actions.

The Company expects that the overall market conditions and associated volume weakness for fiscal 2020 could affect the timing for reaching the sales and corresponding adjusted EBITDA projections outlined at its December 2017 Investor Day.

"The current macro environment makes reaching our targets more difficult in the fiscal 2021 timeframe. That said, we are focused on the things we can control - namely, executing our multi-year profitability improvement plan," said Rossi.  "While the timing of reaching our sales projection is uncertain due to the current softening markets, we are confident in achieving the structural cost savings needed to achieve our adjusted EBITDA profitability target when sales reach the target range."

Fiscal 2019 Fourth Quarter Segment Results

Industrial sales of $318 million decreased 9 percent from $349 million in the prior year quarter due to unfavorable currency exchange of 4 percent, organic sales decline of 4 percent and a 1 percent decrease due to fewer business days. Operating income was $47 million, or 14.9 percent margin, compared to $54 million, or 15.5 percent margin, in the prior year period. Adjusted operating income was $58 million, or 18.3 percent margin, compared to $62 million, or 17.9 percent margin, in the prior year quarter. The decrease in adjusted operating income was driven primarily by unfavorable volume-related labor and fixed cost absorption in certain facilities in part due to simplification/modernization efforts in progress and unfavorable currency exchange, partially offset by incremental simplification/modernization benefits and lower compensation expense.

Widia sales of $49 million decreased 8 percent from $53 million in the prior year quarter, driven by unfavorable currency exchange of 3 percent, organic decline of 3 percent and a 2 percent decrease due to fewer business days. Operating loss was $1 million, or 1.9 percent margin, compared to operating income of $2 million, or 2.8 percent margin, in the prior year. Adjusted operating income was $1 million, or 1.8 percent margin, compared to $2 million, or 3.3 percent margin, in the prior year. The decrease in adjusted operating income was primarily driven by higher raw material costs and unfavorable mix, partially offset by lower compensation expense. Price realization exceeded raw material cost inflation.

Infrastructure sales of $237 million decreased 3 percent from $244 million in the prior year due to unfavorable currency exchange of 3 percent and a 1 percent decrease due to fewer business days, partially offset by 1 percent organic sales growth. Operating income was $39 million, or 16.5 percent margin, compared to $39 million, or 15.9 percent margin, in the prior year period. Adjusted operating income was $37 million, or 15.5 percent margin, compared to $36 million, or 14.7 percent margin, in the prior year quarter. The increase in adjusted operating income was driven primarily by lower raw material costs, incremental simplification/modernization benefits and organic sales growth, partially offset by higher manufacturing expenses.

Kennametal also announced that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.20 per share. The dividend is payable on August 27, 2019 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on August 13, 2019.

NON-GAAP RECONCILIATIONS (UNAUDITED)

In addition to reported results under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP), the following financial highlight tables include, where appropriate, a reconciliation of adjusted results including: operating income and margin; ETR; net income attributable to Kennametal shareholders; diluted EPS; Industrial operating income and margin; Widia operating income and margin; Infrastructure operating income and margin; FOCF; and consolidated and segment organic sales growth (all of which are non-GAAP financial measures), to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. Adjustments for the three months ended June 30, 2019 include: (1) restructuring and related charges and (2) release of valuation allowance on Australian deferred tax assets. Adjustments for the three months ended June 30, 2018 include: (1) restructuring and related charges and (2) discrete benefit from tax reform. Adjustments for the twelve months ended June 30, 2019 include: (1) restructuring and related charges, (2) tax charge from change in permanent reinvestment assertion, (3) net discrete effects of tax reform and (4) release of valuation allowance on Australian deferred tax assets. Adjustments for the twelve months ended June 30, 2018 include: (1) restructuring and related charges, (2) impact of out of period adjustment to provision for income taxes and (3) net discrete effects of tax reform. For those adjustments that are presented 'net of tax', the tax effect of the adjustment can be derived by calculating the difference between the pre-tax and the post-tax adjustments presented. The tax effect on adjustments is calculated by preparing an overall tax calculation including the adjustments and then a tax calculation excluding the adjustments. The difference between these calculations results in the tax impact of the adjustments.

Management believes that presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information about the results of operations of the Company for the current and past periods. Management believes that investors should have available the same information that management uses to assess operating performance, determine compensation and assess the capital structure of the Company. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most comparable GAAP financial measures. Investors are cautioned that non-GAAP financial measures used by management may not be comparable to non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Reconciliations and descriptions of all non-GAAP financial measures are set forth in the disclosures below.

Reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures for the following forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures for full fiscal year of 2020 have not been provided, including but not limited to: adjusted EPS, organic sales growth and FOCF. The most comparable GAAP financial measures are earnings per share, sales growth and net cash flow from operating activities, respectively. Because the non-GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis are subject to uncertainty and variability as they are dependent on many factors - including, but not limited to, the effect of foreign currency exchange fluctuations, impacts from potential acquisitions or divestitures, gains or losses on the potential sale of businesses or other assets, restructuring costs, asset impairment charges, gains or losses from early extinguishment of debt, the tax impact of the items above and the impact of tax law changes or other tax matters - reconciliations to the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measures are not available without unreasonable effort.

Free Operating Cash Flow (FOCF)

FOCF is a non-GAAP financial measure and is defined by the Company as cash provided by operations (which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure) less capital expenditures plus proceeds from disposals of fixed assets. Management considers FOCF to be an important indicator of the Company's cash generating capability because it better represents cash generated from operations that can be used for dividends, debt repayment, strategic initiatives (such as acquisitions) and other investing and financing activities.

Organic Sales (Decline) Growth

Organic sales (decline) growth is a non-GAAP financial measure of sales (decline) growth (which is the most directly comparable GAAP measure) excluding the impacts of acquisitions, divestitures, business days and foreign currency exchange from year-over-year comparisons. Management believes this measure provides investors with a supplemental understanding of underlying sales trends by providing sales growth on a consistent basis. Management reports organic sales growth at the consolidated and segment levels.
