Company Release - 5/1/2019 6:51 AM ET

NORTH CANTON, Ohio, May 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Timken Company (NYSE: TKR; www.timken.com), a world leader in engineered bearings and power transmission products, today reported first-quarter 2019 sales of $979.7 million, up 10.9 percent from the same period a year ago. The increase was primarily driven by organic growth in the Process Industries segment and the benefit of acquisitions, partially offset by unfavorable foreign currency translation.

In the first quarter, Timken posted net income of $91.9 million or $1.19 per diluted share, versus net income of $80.2 million or $1.02 per diluted share for the same period a year ago. The year-over-year increase was driven by higher volume, favorable price/mix, improved manufacturing performance, lower selling, general and administrative (SG&A) costs, and the benefit of acquisitions, partially offset by higher material costs. The current period also included higher interest expense, as well as higher income tax expense driven by discrete tax adjustments in the current quarter.

Excluding special items (detailed in the attached tables), adjusted net income in the first quarter of 2019 was $104.2 million or a record $1.35 per diluted share, versus adjusted net income of $80 million or $1.01 per diluted share for the same period in 2018. Cash from operations for the quarter was $52.3 million, and free cash flow was $36.1 million.

"We had an excellent start to the year, achieving strong revenue growth, margin expansion and record adjusted earnings per share in the first quarter," said Richard G. Kyle, Timken president and chief executive officer. "We continue to deliver profitable growth as a result of our focused strategy, strong operating performance and diverse market and product mix. Our recent acquisition of Diamond Chain further enhances our power transmission portfolio, which now accounts for roughly one-third of company revenues. Whether through innovation from within or acquisition, we are profitably growing Timken's industrial leadership position to create shareholder value that endures."

Among recent developments, the company:

  • Earned recognition for the ninth time as one of the World's Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices that fuel corporate character, marketplace trust and business success;
  • Returned $30 million of capital to shareholders during the quarter with the payment of its 387th consecutive quarterly dividend and the repurchase of approximately 210 thousand shares; and 
  • Completed the acquisition of Diamond Chain, a leading supplier of high-performance roller chains for industrial markets, and an excellent strategic fit with Timken's existing Drives chain business.

First-Quarter 2019 Segment Results

Mobile Industries sales of $500 million increased 2.4 percent compared with the same period a year ago, driven primarily by organic growth in the aerospace sector and the benefit of acquisitions net of divestitures, partially offset by unfavorable currency.

Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) in the quarter were $61.4 million or 12.3 percent of sales, compared with EBIT of $51.1 million or 10.5 percent of sales for the same period a year ago. The increase in EBIT reflects favorable price/mix, improved manufacturing performance, lower logistics and SG&A costs, and the benefit of acquisitions net of divestitures, partially offset by higher material costs. The current period also includes a $6 million charge for damage resulting from a flood that occurred during the quarter at one of our U.S. warehouses.

Excluding special items (detailed in the attached tables), adjusted EBIT in the quarter was $66 million or 13.2 percent of sales, compared with $51.8 million or 10.6 percent of sales in the first quarter last year.

Process Industries reported sales of $479.7 million, up 21.6 percent from the same period a year ago. Acquisitions added revenue of $52.4 million in the quarter, or 13.3 percent. Excluding acquisitions, revenue was up 8.3 percent with broad organic growth across most sectors led by wind energy, industrial distribution and heavy industries, partially offset by unfavorable currency.

EBIT for the quarter was $106.2 million or 22.1 percent of sales, compared with EBIT of $81.6 million or 20.7 percent of sales for the same period a year ago. The increase in EBIT was driven by higher volume, favorable price/mix and the benefit of acquisitions, partially offset by higher material costs. The current period also included acquisition-related charges.

Excluding special items (detailed in the attached tables), adjusted EBIT in the quarter was $109.8 million or 22.9 percent of sales, compared with $81.6 million or 20.7 percent of sales in the first quarter last year.

2019 Outlook

The company expects 2019 revenue to be up approximately 8 to 10 percent in total versus 2018. This includes expected organic growth of 3 to 5 percent plus the benefit of acquisitions including the recently completed Diamond Chain acquisition, partially offset by unfavorable foreign currency translation.

"We continue to see growing demand across many industrial sectors," said Kyle. "We expect to deliver solid revenue growth, expanded margins, record earnings and strong cash flow in 2019, further demonstrating the improvements in the company's market position and earnings power. We remain focused on winning with customers, driving operational excellence and investing for growth, all of which will generate significant value for shareholders over time."

Timken now anticipates increased 2019 earnings per diluted share in the range of $4.95 to $5.15 for the full year on a GAAP basis. Excluding special items (detailed in the attached tables), the company expects record 2019 adjusted earnings per diluted share ranging from $5.15 to $5.35.

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.

(Unaudited)



The following reconciliation is provided as additional relevant information about the Company's performance deemed useful to investors. Management believes consolidated earnings 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 to consolidated EBIT. Management also believes that non-GAAP measures of adjusted EBIT and adjusted EBITDA are useful to investors as they are representative of the Company's core operations and are used in the management of the business, including decisions concerning the allocation of resources and assessment of performance.

(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 cost structure periodically, 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) Acquisition-related charges in 2019 related to the ABC Bearings, Cone Drive, Rollon and Diamond Chain acquisitions, including transaction costs and inventory step-up impact. In 2018, acquisition charges related to ABC Bearings, Cone Drive and Rollon acquisitions.




(3) The gain on sale of real estate related to the sale of a manufacturing facility in Pulaski, Tennessee during the first quarter of 2019. This amount was recorded in other income.




(4) Loss on divestiture relates to the sale of the ICT Business, located in Gorinchem, Netherlands.




(5) Corporate pension-related charges represent curtailments and actuarial (gains) and 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.




(6) Represents property loss and related expenses of $6.0 million (net of expected insurance proceeds) resulting from flood damage caused by heavy rainstorms in Knoxville, Tennessee, during the quarter that impacted one of the Company's warehouses.




(7) Twelve months trailing adjusted EBITDA reflects results from acquired companies from the acquisition date through March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively.
