Fourth-quarter 2020 Highlights

  • Net sales of $430.3 million

  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $34.2 million

  • Diluted net income per share of $0.05, $0.19 on an adjusted basis(1)

Full-year 2020 Highlights

  • Net sales of $1,443.4 million

  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $83.1 million

  • Diluted net loss per share of $0.55, $0.35 loss on an adjusted basis(1)

The Manitowoc Company, Inc. (NYSE: MTW), (the "Company" or "Manitowoc") a leading global manufacturer of cranes and lifting solutions, today reported fourth-quarter net income of $1.8 million, or $0.05 per diluted share. Fourth-quarter adjusted net income(1) was $6.7 million, or $0.19 per diluted share.

Net sales in the fourth quarter decreased 7.1% year-over-year to $430.3 million and were favorably impacted by $14.6 million from changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $34.2 million, or 7.9% of net sales, increased $3.3 million year-over-year due to a favorable product mix and lower engineering, selling and administrative expenses in the quarter.

Fourth-quarter orders of $508.6 million increased 7.8% from the prior year, 4.6% on a currency neutral basis. Backlog as of December 31, 2020 totaled $543.2 million, an increase of 14.3% year-over-year.

Full-year 2020 net sales of $1,443.4 million were favorably impacted by $12.4 million due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Full-year 2020 adjusted EBITDA(1) was $83.1 million, or 5.8% of net sales. Manitowoc recorded a full-year net loss of $19.1 million, or $0.55 loss per diluted share. Full-year net loss on an adjusted basis(1) was $12.3 million, or $0.35 loss per diluted share.

"The fourth quarter was a strong finish to a challenging year. Led by a couple of sizable crawler purchases, order intake for the quarter totaled $508.6 million, and we ended the year with $543.2 million in backlog. Although we continue to trend toward a recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, we still see a significant amount of uncertainty in our end markets combined with growing material cost inflation, a softening dollar, and a less favorable product mix. Therefore, we are not providing 2021 financial guidance at this time," commented Aaron H. Ravenscroft, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Manitowoc Company, Inc.

"Manitowoc’s balance sheet remains strong, and we have ample liquidity to fund our growth initiatives. We continue to evaluate acquisition opportunities; accelerate our product development in our all-terrain product line; scale-up our Chinese tower crane business; and grow our tower crane rental fleet in Europe. 2021 will be a year of transition, and we will use it to lay the foundation for our future growth," concluded Ravenscroft.

Investor Conference Call

The Manitowoc Company will host a conference call for security analysts and institutional investors to discuss its fourth-quarter and full-year 2020 earnings results on Wednesday, February 10th, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. ET (9:00 a.m. CT). A live audio webcast of the call, along with the related presentation, published in conjunction with this press release, can be accessed in the Investor Relations section of Manitowoc’s website at www.manitowoc.com. A replay of the conference call will also be available at the same location on the website.

Footnote

(1)Adjusted net income (loss), adjusted diluted net income (loss) per share, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating cash flows and free cash flows are financial measures that are not in accordance with GAAP. For a reconciliation to the comparable GAAP numbers please see schedule of "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" at the end of this press release. Manitowoc believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide important supplemental information to both management and investors regarding financial and business trends used in assessing its results of operations. Manitowoc believes excluding specified items provides a more meaningful comparison to the corresponding reporting periods and internal budgets and forecasts, assists investors in performing analysis that is consistent with financial models developed by investors and research analysts, provides management with a more relevant measure of operating performance and is more useful in assessing management performance.
