The Manitowoc Company Reports Third-Quarter 2020 Financial Results

·11 min read

Manitowoc reports Net Sales of $355.6 million; Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $24.8 million

The Manitowoc Company, Inc. (NYSE: MTW), (the "Company" or "Manitowoc") a leading global manufacturer of cranes and lifting solutions, today reported a third-quarter net loss of $(0.4) million, or $(0.01) per diluted share. Third-quarter adjusted net income(1) was $3.5 million, or $0.10 per diluted share.

Net sales in the third quarter decreased 20.6% year-over-year to $355.6 million, favorably impacted by $7.4 million from changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $24.8 million, or 7.0% of sales, declined $18.0 million year-over-year mainly due to the lower sales in the quarter.

Third-quarter orders of $389.9 million increased 10.5% from the prior year, favorably impacted by 1.7% due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Backlog as of September 30, 2020 totaled $464.8 million, approximately flat to prior year and an increase of 8.0% from June 30, 2020.

"Our third-quarter results were led by stronger than anticipated orders. We continue to manage our costs and production schedules tightly, and I was very pleased with our operational execution and cash generation in the period. I thank our team for their extraordinary effort in continuing to manage the headwinds due to COVID-19 while exceeding our financial expectations," commented Aaron H. Ravenscroft, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Manitowoc Company, Inc.

"We ended the third quarter with nearly $400 million of liquidity. In spite of the challenging environment, we continue to invest in the future. Our new product development programs remain on-track, and we have begun to invest in organic strategies to grow sales. Our balance sheet is strong, and we are prepared to pursue acquisitions once the overall economic environment stabilizes. I am confident in our long-term growth opportunities and ability to increase shareholder value," concluded Ravenscroft.

On March 27, 2020, the Company suspended guidance for 2020 as a result of the significant uncertainty around the future impact that COVID-19 would have on the Company’s end market demand and supply chain. Although the significant uncertainty persists in the markets the Company serves, line of sight to fourth-quarter results have improved. Accordingly, the Company’s fourth-quarter forecast for revenue is between $425.0 million and $450.0 million and between $18.0 million and $23.0 million for adjusted EBITDA.

Investor Conference Call

The Manitowoc Company will host a conference call for security analysts and institutional investors to discuss its third-quarter earnings results on Thursday, November 5th, 2020, 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.
