Manitex International Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2021 Results

·13 min read

BRIDGEVIEW, IL / ACCESSWIRE / March 8, 2022 / Manitex International, Inc. (NASDAQ:MNTX) ("Manitex" or the "Company"), a leading international provider of cranes and specialized industrial equipment, today announced results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2021.

Financial Highlights

  • Fourth quarter net sales increased 18.2% year-over-year, to $53.4 million, compared to $45.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2020; for the full year, net sales rose to $211.5 million from $167.5 million in 2020

  • Largely due to asset impairment charges of $3.2 million (related to the closure of the Company's Badger facility) and supply chain inefficiencies, fourth quarter gross profit declined to $4.7 million from $8.4 million in the prior-year period

  • The Company reported a fourth quarter net loss from continuing operations of $8.1 million, or $(0.40) per diluted share, compared to a loss of $1.8 million, or $(0.09) per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2020; the fiscal 2021 fourth quarter results included $6.4 million of one-time, after-tax charges ($0.32 per share), largely related to the Badger closing

  • Adjusted EBITDA* was $0.3 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 versus $1.5 million in 2020; for the full year, Adjusted EBITDA rose to $8.0 million from $5.7 million in the prior-year period

  • Backlog as of December 31, 2021 increased to $189.0 million from $113.6 million as of September 30, 2021, up 66.4% sequentially; the Company's book-to-bill ratio was 2.41:1 for the fourth quarter of 2021

  • Net debt was $23.8 million at the end of the quarter, representing a leverage ratio of 3.0 times trailing Adjusted EBITDA*

  • The Company's total liquidity* was $37.6 million as of December 31, 2021 versus $28.9 million at the end of 2020

"As we turn the corner on 2021, we remain steadfast in our resolve to tackle near-term supply chain constraints and put the Company on sound footing for the year ahead," said Steve Filipov, CEO of Manitex International. "We took a number of steps to improve our cost structure during the quarter including, first and foremost, closing our Badger facility in Winona, Minnesota and moving production of certain straight-mast boom cranes and aerial platforms to Georgetown, Texas. As part of this initiative - to enhance efficiencies and increase capacity utilization - we booked a pre-tax charge of $3.6 million related to asset impairment and inventory write-downs. We expect that such actions will save on operating expense and logistics costs going forward, expanding margins and paving the way for improved bottom line results. Furthermore, we will realize cash proceeds from selling assets related to the discontinued product lines and inventory, along with property, plant and equipment, associated with this consolidation.

"Our backlog grew over 66% sequentially from the third quarter while, at the same time, we continued to adjust pricing in response to ongoing supply chain challenges including higher material costs and logistics-related expense; while there is a lag time for such purchase price variances to stabilize, we expect margins to normalize as the year progresses. We also utilized cash generation to pay down debt in the fourth quarter and begin 2022 in a stronger liquidity position, which we believe will allow us to take advantage of strategic transactions that will be complementary to our existing business. Overall, even as the Company and industry face headwinds due to tight markets worldwide, we're seeing strong demand across the board and are optimistic about achieving greater operating performance in the quarters to come."

* The sum of cash and availability under the Company's revolver and working capital facilities.

Financial Results for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year ended December 31, 2021

Net sales for the fourth quarter were $53.4 million compared to $45.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, and the Company reported a net loss from continuing operations of $8.1 million, or $(0.40) per diluted share, compared to a loss of $1.8 million, or $(0.09) per diluted share, in the prior-year period. Adjusted net loss* from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2021 was $1.7 million, or $(0.08) per share, compared with the loss of $1.3 million, or $(0.07) per share for the fourth quarter of 2020.

Net sales for the full year were $211.5 million in 2021 compared to $167.5 million in 2020, and the Company reported a net loss from continuing operations of $4.6 million, or $(0.23) per diluted share, in 2021 compared to $12.7 million, or $(0.64) per diluted share, in the prior-year period.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Items

In this press release, we refer to various non-GAAP (U.S. generally accepted accounting principles) financial measures which management uses to evaluate operating performance, to establish internal budgets and targets, and to compare the Company's financial performance against such budgets and targets. These non-GAAP measures, as defined by the Company, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures being disclosed by other companies. While adjusted financial measures are not intended to replace any presentation included in our consolidated financial statements under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and should not be considered an alternative to operating performance or an alternative to cash flow as a measure of liquidity, we believe these measures are useful to investors in assessing our operating results, capital expenditure and working capital requirements and the ongoing performance of its underlying businesses. A reconciliation of Adjusted GAAP financial measures is included with this press release. Results of operations reflect continuing operations. All per share amounts are on a fully diluted basis. The amounts described below are unaudited, are reported in thousands of U.S. dollars, and are as of the dates indicated.
