  • Q3 GAAP EPS was $0.99; Q3 Adjusted EPS was $1.01
  • YTD GAAP EPS was $2.51; YTD Adjusted EPS was $3.09

Park-Ohio Holdings Corp. (PKOH) today announced its results for the third quarter of 2019.

THIRD QUARTER CONSOLIDATED RESULTS

Net sales were $403.4 million in the third quarter of 2019 compared to net sales of $414.3 million in the third quarter of 2018. Net income attributable to ParkOhio common shareholders was $12.2 million, or $0.99 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2019, compared to $14.2 million, or $1.14 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2018. On an adjusted basis, net income attributable to ParkOhio common shareholders was $12.4 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, in the 2019 period compared to $13.3 million, or $1.07 per diluted share, in the 2018 period. Please refer to the table that follows for a reconciliation of net income to adjusted earnings.

Net sales in the quarter decreased year-over-year principally as a result of the impact of the United Auto Workers (“UAW”) labor strike at General Motors and slightly softer industrial demand, offset by new sales initiatives. Consolidated gross margins improved by 60 basis points to 16.5% in the 2019 quarter compared to 15.9% in the third quarter of 2018. Also, operating cash flow and free cash flow were $30.7 million and $19.8 million, respectively, which was used to repay debt of $12.0 million during the quarter. At September 30, 2019, cash on-hand increased to $49.8 million.

Matthew V. Crawford, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President, stated, "Despite the impact of the UAW labor strike at GM, we are pleased with our current performance and particularly with progress related to initiatives in new sales, margin enhancement and free cash flow. We remain confident that we will deliver on our commitments and continue to see the benefits of our investments made during the last 18 months."

THIRD QUARTER SEGMENT RESULTS

In Supply Technologies, net sales decreased 4% year-over-year due to lower customer demand in certain end markets, including Semiconductor and Construction and Agricultural equipment, which was partially offset by strong demand from other key end markets, including Heavy-duty Truck, Civil Aerospace and Power Sports. Segment operating income and margin decreased from a year ago due to lower sales levels in certain end markets and sales mix. The third quarter margin impact of tariffs on imported products and general inflation was minimal, as improved pricing and changes in the supply chain have been implemented. We expect the improved pricing and supply chain changes to positively affect future gross profit margins in this segment, and new sales initiatives to play a greater role going into 2020.

In Assembly Components, net sales decreased 7% year-over-year due to the impact of the UAW labor strike at General Motors, lower levels of demand in China and the pass-through of reduced aluminum prices. Operating profit and margins in this business increased 12% and 130 basis points year-over-year, respectively, driven primarily by benefits from cost-reduction actions taken earlier in the year and the flow through impact of new business in our extrusion and molded rubber products business. We expect continued increases in operating profit and margins, as volumes from newly-awarded programs ramp up and demand for products impacted by the UAW strike returns to normal levels. During the third quarter, we continued launching over 50 new auto-related programs which will benefit our fuel, aluminum, and rubber products businesses in 2020 and beyond. We continue to see strong quoting activity as our technologies play an increasing role in the electrification and fuel efficiency revolution. We expect this will enable this segment to outperform the market considerably during the next several years.

In Engineered Products, net sales were up 5% year-over-year, driven by continuing strong global demand for our induction and pipe threading equipment, and aftermarket parts and services in our Industrial Equipment Group. In our forged and machined products group, higher aerospace sales and sales from the acquisition of Erie Press were offset by weaker customer demand in the oil and gas end market. Bookings of new equipment and order backlog remain at high levels for the remainder of 2019. Operating income and margin in the third quarter was down year-over-year due to unfavorable sales mix and an unplanned temporary shutdown of a production line in one of our forging plants.

YEAR-TO-DATE CONSOLIDATED RESULTS

Net sales were $1,238.8 million in the first nine months of 2019 compared to net sales of $1,252.2 million in the first nine months of 2018. Net income attributable to ParkOhio common shareholders was $31.0 million, or $2.51 per diluted share, in the first nine months of 2019, compared to $38.8 million, or $3.09 per diluted share, in the 2018 period. On an adjusted basis, net income attributable to ParkOhio common shareholders was $38.2 million, or $3.09 per diluted share, in the 2019 period, compared to $38.4 million, or $3.08 per diluted share, in the 2018 period.

FULL-YEAR 2019 GUIDANCE UPDATE

The Company is updating its full-year 2019 Adjusted EPS guidance to $4.00 to $4.20 per diluted share primarily due to the impact of the UAW labor strike, which has affected several of our operations. The Company is updating its full-year 2019 GAAP EPS guidance to $3.42 to $3.62 per diluted share. Please refer to the table that follows for a reconciliation of GAAP EPS to Adjusted EPS guidance.

Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited)

Adjusted earnings is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company is providing in this press release. Adjusted earnings is net income calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), adjusted for special items. The Company presents this non-GAAP financial measure because management uses adjusted earnings to compare its operating performance on a consistent basis over multiple periods because they remove the impact of certain significant non-cash credits or charges and certain infrequent items impacting net income. Adjusted earnings is not a measure of performance under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, net income calculated in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted earnings herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The following table reconciles net income to adjusted earnings:

Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited)

EBITDA, as defined is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company is providing in this press release. EBITDA, as defined reflects net income attributable to Park-Ohio Holdings Corp. common shareholders before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and also excludes certain charges and corporate-level expenses as defined in the Company's current revolving credit facility.

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company is providing in this press release. Free cash flow is calculated as net cash provided by operating activities minus purchases of property, plant and equipment. The Company presents this non-GAAP financial measure because management uses free cash flow to assess the Company's performance and allocate its capital for various purposes. Free cash flow is not a measure of performance under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, cash flow calculated in accordance with GAAP. Free cash flow herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The following table reconciles operating cash flow to free cash flow:

Adjusted earnings per share is not a measure of performance under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, earnings per share calculated in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted earnings per share herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The following table reconciles earnings per share to adjusted earnings per share:
