- Reports fourth-quarter sales of $778 million, up 19 percent from last year

- Generated fourth-quarter earnings per diluted share of $0.37 on a GAAP basis, with adjusted earnings per diluted share of $0.68

Company Release - 2/7/2018 6:51 AM ET

NORTH CANTON, Ohio, Feb. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --  The Timken Company (NYSE: TKR; www.timken.com), a world leader in engineered bearings and mechanical power transmission products, today reported fourth-quarter 2017 sales of $778 million, up 18.8 percent from the same period a year ago. The increase was driven by organic growth across most end-market sectors led by off-highway and industrial distribution, as well as the benefit of acquisitions and currency.

In the fourth quarter, Timken posted net income of $29.2 million or $0.37 per diluted share, versus a net loss of $(6.9) million or $(0.09) per basic share for the same period a year ago. The change year-over-year reflects improved performance across the business, as well as lower pension-related and impairment and restructuring charges, partially offset by lower CDSOA income1 and higher income tax expense. The higher income tax expense was driven by one-time charges of $35.3 million recorded as a result of the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, partially offset by discrete and other tax benefits recorded during the period.

Excluding special items (detailed in the attached tables), adjusted net income in the fourth quarter of 2017 was $53.9 million or $0.68 per diluted share, up from $40.2 million or $0.51 per diluted share for the same period in 2016. The improvement reflects higher volume, favorable manufacturing performance and the benefit of acquisitions, partially offset by unfavorable price/mix and higher operating costs.

"Our strong fourth-quarter results capped an excellent 2017 for The Timken Company," said Richard G. Kyle, Timken president and chief executive officer. "We posted solid revenue growth each quarter, responded well to our customers' increased demand for Timken products and services and delivered significantly improved financial results. We advanced our strategy across all fronts, and we move into 2018 a stronger company well prepared to capitalize on the expected continued growth in our end markets."

1 Represents funds received by the company under the U.S. Continued Dumping and Subsidy Offset Act (CDSOA).

2017 Full-Year Results

For 2017, sales were $3 billion, up 12.5 percent compared with 2016. The increase was driven by organic growth across most end-market sectors led by off-highway, industrial distribution and heavy truck, and the benefit of acquisitions and currency, partially offset by lower demand in the rail sector.

Net income was $203.4 million or $2.58 per diluted share for the year, compared with net income of $140.8 million or $1.78 per diluted share a year ago.  The change year-over-year reflects improved performance across the business, as well as lower pension-related and impairment and restructuring charges, and a lower income tax rate driven primarily by net discrete and other tax benefits recorded during the year, partially offset by lower CDSOA income1.

Excluding special items (detailed in the attached tables), adjusted net income was $207.5 million or $2.63 per diluted share in 2017. This compares with $169 million or $2.13 per diluted share in 2016. The improvement in adjusted net income reflects higher volume, favorable manufacturing performance and the benefit of acquisitions and currency, partially offset by unfavorable price/mix and higher operating costs.

Among significant accomplishments during the year, the company expanded its mechanical power transmission portfolio and geographic reach. The additions of Torsion Control Products, Groeneveld Lubrication Solutions and PT Tech advanced the company's position in industrial couplings and lubrication systems, and introduced industrial clutches and brakes to the Timken portfolio. The company also furthered its leadership position in engineered bearings, opening a state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Romania and entering into a definitive agreement to acquire ABC Bearings in India. Additionally, the company increased its quarterly dividend in May and repurchased nearly one million shares of stock, returning a total of $127 million to shareholders during the year.

Fourth-Quarter 2017 Segment Results

Mobile Industries reported sales of $425.8 million, up 24.4 percent compared with the same period a year ago.  Acquisitions added revenue of $42.7 million in the quarter, or 12.5 percent.  Excluding acquisitions, revenue was up 11.9 percent, driven primarily by increased demand in the off-highway, heavy truck and automotive sectors, and favorable currency.

Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) in the quarter were $32 million or 7.5 percent of sales, compared with a loss of $(8.2) million or (2.4) percent of sales for the same period a year ago. The increase in EBIT reflects the impact of higher volume, favorable manufacturing performance and the benefit of acquisitions, partially offset by unfavorable price/mix and higher logistics, material and SG&A costs.  The current period also reflects lower pension-related and impairment and restructuring charges.

Excluding special items (detailed in the attached tables), adjusted EBIT in the quarter was $41.4 million or 9.7 percent of sales, compared with $28.8 million or 8.4 percent of sales in the fourth quarter last year.

Process Industries sales of $352.2 million increased 12.7 percent from the same period a year ago, driven primarily by strong demand in the industrial distribution and general industrial sectors, increased military marine revenue and favorable currency.

EBIT for the quarter was $55.6 million or 15.8 percent of sales, compared with EBIT of $25.8 million or 8.3 percent of sales for the same period a year ago. The increase in EBIT was driven by higher volume, favorable manufacturing performance and lower pension-related charges, partially offset by unfavorable price/mix and higher logistics and SG&A costs.

Excluding special items (detailed in the attached tables), adjusted EBIT in the quarter was $56.5 million or 16 percent of sales, compared with $47.1 million or 15.1 percent of sales in the fourth quarter last year.

2018 Outlook

The company expects 2018 revenue to be up approximately 9 to 10 percent in total versus 2017. This includes expected organic growth of 5 to 6 percent plus the benefit of acquisitions made during 2017 and favorable currency. Within its segments, the company estimates for full-year 2018:

  • Mobile Industries sales to be up approximately 9 to 11 percent, driven primarily by organic growth in the off-highway and heavy truck sectors, as well as the benefit of acquisitions and favorable currency.
  • Process Industries sales to be up approximately 8 to 10 percent, reflecting growth in the industrial distribution, services and general industrial sectors, and favorable currency.

"We enter 2018 with broad strength across our end markets," said Kyle. "We will continue to focus on serving our customers, developing innovative product solutions, operating with excellence and building a stronger Timken Company.  We expect our execution combined with robust markets will result in another year of strong revenue and earnings growth with margin expansion."

Timken anticipates 2018 earnings per diluted share to range from $3.05 to $3.15 for the full year on a GAAP basis. Excluding special items (detailed in the attached tables), the company expects 2018 adjusted earnings per diluted share to range from $3.20 to $3.30.

(1) Adjustments are pre-tax, with net tax provision (benefit) listed separately.
















(2) Impairment, restructuring and reorganization charges (including items recorded in cost of products sold) relate to: (i) plant closures; (ii) the rationalization of certain plants; and (iii) severance related to cost reduction initiatives. The Company re-assesses its operating footprint and makes adjustments as needed that result in restructuring charges.  However, management believes these actions are not representative of the Company's core operations. 
















(3) Acquisition related charges in 2017 relate to the Groeneveld Group ("Groeneveld"), Torsion Control Products, Inc. ("Torsion Control Products"), PT Tech, Inc. ("PT Tech") and EDT Corp. ("EDT") acquisitions, including one-time transaction costs and inventory step-up impact.
















(4) The gain on the sale of real estate related to the sale of a manufacturing facility in South Africa and a manufacturing facility in Altavista, Virgina during the second and third quarter of 2017, respectively. These amounts were recorded in other income.
















(5) Pension related charges represent actuarial losses that resulted from the remeasurement of pension plan assets and obligations as a result of changes in assumptions. The Company recognizes actuarial (gains) and losses through earnings in connection with the annual remeasurement in the fourth quarter, or on an interim basis if specific events trigger a remeasurement. Pension related charges in 2016 also included professional fees associated with the implementation of a group annuity contract.
















(6) CDSOA income represents the amount of funds received by the Company from monies collected by U.S. Customs on entries of merchandise subject to anti-dumping orders that entered the U.S. prior to October 1, 2007.
















(7) Health care plan modification costs represent one-time charges associated with a redesign in medical insurance options available for active associates. In connection with the redesign, the Company elected to pay certain unused reimbursement account balances to associates impacted by the change in available options.
















(8) The tax indemnification in 2017 represents a receivable from TimkenSteel Corporation related to the settlement of certain tax liabilities and pursuant to a tax sharing agreement between the Company and TimkenSteel Corporation dated June 30, 2014.  This amount was recorded in other income.                                      
















(9) Provision (benefit) for income taxes includes the net tax impact on pre-tax adjustments and the impact of discrete and other unusual tax items recorded during the respective periods, including charges related to U.S. tax reform in the fourth quarter of 2017.

The following reconciliation is provided as additional relevant information about the Company's performance deemed useful to investors.  Management believes consolidated earnings (loss) before interest and taxes (EBIT) is a non-GAAP measure that is useful to investors as it is representative of the Company's performance and that it is appropriate to compare GAAP net income (loss) to consolidated EBIT.

(1) Impairment, restructuring and reorganization charges (including items recorded in cost of products sold) relate to: (i) plant closures; (ii) the rationalization of certain plants; and (iii) severance related to cost reduction initiatives. The Company re-assesses its operating footprint and makes adjustments as needed that result in restructuring charges.  However, management believes these actions are not representative of the Company's core operations. 











(2) CDSOA income represents the amount of funds received by the Company from monies collected by U.S. Customs on entries of merchandise subject to anti-dumping orders that entered the U.S. prior to October 1, 2007.











(3) Health care plan modification costs represent one-time charges associated with a redesign in medical insurance options available for active associates. In connection with the redesign, the Company elected to pay certain unused reimbursement account balances to associates impacted by the change in available options.
 











(4) Acquisition related charges in 2017 relate to the Groeneveld, Torsion Control Products, PT Tech and EDT acquisitions, including one-time transaction costs and inventory step-up impact.

(6) Pension related charges represent actuarial losses that resulted from the remeasurement of pension plan assets and obligations as a result of changes in assumptions. The Company recognizes actuarial (gains) and losses through earnings in connection with the annual remeasurement in the fourth quarter, or on an interim basis if specific events trigger a remeasurement. Pension related charges in 2016 also included professional fees associated with the implementation of a group annuity contract.

Reconciliation of Total Debt to Net Debt and the Ratio of Net Debt to Capital to the Ratio of Total Debt to Capital:

(Unaudited)





These reconciliations are provided as additional relevant information about the Company's financial position deemed useful to investors. Capital, used for the ratio of total debt to capital, is a non-GAAP measure defined as total debt plus total shareholders' equity. Capital, used for the ratio of net debt to capital, is a non-GAAP measure defined as total debt less cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash plus total shareholders' equity. Management believes Net Debt and the Ratio of Net Debt to Capital are important measures of the Company's financial position, due to the amount of cash and cash equivalents on hand.
