Regal Beloit Corporation Announces Fourth Quarter 2016 Financial Results
[February 06, 2017]

Regal Beloit Corporation Announces Fourth Quarter 2016 Financial Results


BELOIT, Wis., Feb. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Regal Beloit Corporation (NYSE: RBC) today reported fourth quarter 2016 diluted earnings per share of $1.01.  Fourth quarter 2016 adjusted diluted earnings per share* were $1.04.

Key financial results for the fourth quarter 2016 included:

  • Total net sales of $758.1 million decreased 2.0% from the prior year and included a negative 0.7% foreign currency translation impact and a negative 0.6% divestiture impact.
  • Income from operations was $70.1 million or 9.2% of net sales and was negatively impacted by a $14.5 million LIFO expense.
  • Effective tax rate was 16.9% driven by a change in earnings mix resulting from LIFO expense.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities was $111.2 million and capital expenditures totaled $19.1 million, resulting in free cash flow of $92.1 million or 202% of net income. 
  • The Company paid down $100.4 million of debt.

Fourth quarter 2016 segment results versus the prior year fourth quarter included:

  • Commercial and Industrial Systems Segment net sales were $369.2 million, down 0.4%.  Foreign currency had a negative 0.9% translation impact.  The result was a positive organic sales growth rate of 0.5%, as improvement in most end markets offset weakness in oil & gas.  Operating margin was 5.6% and was negatively impacted by $8.4 million of LIFO inventory expense.  Excluding gain on sale of assets and restructuring and related costs of $1.0 million, adjusted operating margin was 5.8%.
  • Climate Solutions Segment net sales were $215.2 million, an increase of 2.3%.  Foreign currency had a negative 0.7% translation impact.  The result was a positive organic sales growth rate of 3.0%.  The increase was due to strength in the North American residential HVAC market, partially offset by the negative impact of contractual two-way material price formulas and weakness in the Middle East.  Operating margin was 12.5% and was negatively impacted by $6.3 million of LIFO inventory expense.  Excluding restructuring and related costs of $0.6 million, adjusted operating margin was 12.8%.
  • Power Transmission Solutions Segment net sales were $173.7 million, down 9.8%.  Foreign currency had a negative 0.2% translation impact.  The Mastergear divestiture had a negative 2.4% impact.  The result was an organic sales growth rate of negative 7.1%.  Sales were negatively impacted by renewable energy demand patterns and weakness in the oil & gas end market.  Operating margin was 13.0%, aided by lower operating expense and $0.2 million of LIFO inventory benefit.  Excluding restructuring and related costs of $0.5 million, adjusted operating margin was 13.3%.

*This earnings release includes non-GAAP financial measures.  Descriptions of why we believe these non-GAAP measures are useful and reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are included with this earnings release.

"Our fourth quarter results were in line with our expectations.  Organic sales growth turned positive in our Commercial and Industrial Systems and Climate Solutions Segments," said Regal Chairman and CEO Mark Gliebe.  "We were pleased that we were able to offset the LIFO expense with strong operational performance and cost controls.

"Reflecting on the year, the Company made significant progress on our simplification and innovation initiatives while delivering record free cash flow, which we primarily used to pay down $315 million of debt during the year."

2017 Outlook

"The global macro environment continues to be somewhat uncertain, however we expect our 2017 organic sales growth to be positive.  While commodity inflation will be a challenge, we expect the incremental margins from the volume growth and simplification to offset that headwind and increase operating margins for the year.  Accordingly, we forecast our 2017 adjusted diluted earnings per share to be $4.50 to $4.90," continued Mr. Gliebe.

The Company forecasts 2017 GAAP diluted earnings per share of $4.35 to $4.75.

NON-GAAP MEASURES AND OTHER DEFINITIONS
Unaudited
(Dollars in Millions, Except per Share Data)

We prepare financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). We also periodically disclose certain financial measures in our quarterly earnings releases, on investor conference calls, and in investor presentations and similar events that may be considered "non-GAAP" financial measures. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful measures for providing investors with additional information regarding our results of operations and for helping investors understand and compare our operating results across accounting periods and compared to our peers. In addition, since our management often uses these non-GAAP financial measures to manage and evaluate our business, make operating decisions, and forecast our future results, we believe disclosing these measures helps investors evaluate our business in the same manner as management. This additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our results of operations prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

In this earnings release, we disclose the following non-GAAP financial measures, and we reconcile these measures in the tables below to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures: adjusted diluted earnings per share (both historical and projected), adjusted income from operations, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, free cash flow, and free cash flow as a percentage of net income attributable to Regal Beloit Corporation.

In addition to these non-GAAP measures, we also use the term "organic sales" to refer to GAAP sales from existing operations excluding sales from acquired businesses recorded prior to the first anniversary of the acquisition less the amount of sales attributable to any divested businesses ("acquisition sales"), and the impact of foreign currency translation. The impact of foreign currency translation is determined by translating the respective period's sales (excluding acquisition sales) using the same currency exchange rates that were in effect during the prior year periods. We use the term "organic sales growth" to refer to the increase in our sales between periods that is attributable to organic sales. We use the term "acquisition growth" to refer to the increase in our sales between periods that is attributable to acquisition sales.
