BRIDGEVIEW, IL / ACCESSWIRE / November 8, 2021 / Manitex International, Inc. (Nasdaq:MNTX) ("Manitex" or the "Company"), a leading international provider of cranes and specialized industrial equipment, today announced results for the third quarter 2021, the three-month period ended September 30, 2021.

Financial Highlights

  • Third quarter net sales increased 39.7% year-over-year, to $50.9 million, compared to $36.5 million in 2020

  • Gross profit rose 20.7%, to $8.0 million, versus $6.7 million in the fiscal third quarter of 2020; as a percent of sales, gross margin was 15.8% in 2021 versus 18.3% last year, reflecting increased material costs

  • The Company reported a net loss from continuing operations of $1.1 million, or $(0.06) per diluted share, compared to a loss of $1.4 million, or $(0.07) per diluted share, in the prior-year period

  • Adjusted EBITDA* was $1.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 versus $1.0 million in 2020

  • Backlog increased to $113.6 million from $111.2 million as of June 30, 2021 and remains 67% higher than the start of fiscal 2021; the book to bill was 1.05:1

  • Net debt was $26.5 million at the end of the quarter, representing a leverage ratio of less than 3.0 times trailing Adjusted EBITDA*

"The third quarter played out largely as expected, with solid top line growth even as the Company faced several challenges due to global supply chain constraints, seasonal shutdowns in Europe, and, to a lesser extent, the ongoing pandemic," said Steve Filipov, CEO of Manitex International. "Revenue rose nearly 40% year-over-year, to $50.9 million, while gross profit increased to $8.0 million and Adjusted EBITDA climbed to $1.6 million. Our backlog remains robust, at $113.6 million, providing a great deal of visibility through the end of fiscal 2021 and beyond.

"As previously indicated, supply chain disruptions and related logistical bottlenecks have impacted our ability to meet strong industrial demand and have, concurrently, increased material costs which have grown more pronounced since the last quarter. In order to address these additional input expenses, we have implemented several pricing adjustments and steel surcharges to protect margins and, in tandem, are building inventory to meet customer requirements. At the same time, we are actively managing costs and investigating all avenues to further streamline our operations to mitigate these unusual headwinds.

"Overall, we feel positive about the future given our record backlog and enduring demand for our products. Our teams are doing an excellent job working through the supply chain issues, and our facilities are delivering equipment to our customers as rapidly as possible. Our expanding position across the globe and general order trends underscore our optimism for the coming year, and we remain confident Manitex can continue posting solid results even while current supply chain inefficiencies play out."

Financial Results for the Third Quarter ended September 30, 2021

Net sales for the third quarter were $50.9 million compared to $36.5 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2020, and the Company reported a net loss from continuing operations of $1.1 million, or $(0.06) per diluted share, compared to a loss of $1.4 million, or $(0.07) per diluted share, in the prior-year period. Adjusted net loss* from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2021 was $0.2 million, or $(0.01) per share, compared to a loss of $1.0 million, or $(0.05) per share, for the third quarter of 2020.

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 for the three month periods ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, and June 30, 2021 is included with this press release below and with the Company's related Form 8-K. 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, or for the three month periods ended September 30, 2021, June 30, 2021 and September 30, 2020, unless otherwise indicated.
