Terex Announces Third Quarter 2018 Results

November 01, 2018
  • Q3 Earnings per Share $0.51, $0.68 as adjusted
  • Increased sales 11%, bookings 22%, and backlog 41%
  • AWP backlog up 48%, MP backlog up 72%
  • Operating margin improvement in AWP and MP

WESTPORT, Conn., Nov. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Terex Corporation (NYSE: TEX) today announced third quarter 2018 income from continuing operations of $38.4 million, or $0.51 per share, on net sales of $1.2 billion.  In the third quarter of 2017, the reported income from continuing operations, which benefited from a non-recurring interim period tax adjustment, was $56.6 million, or $0.63 per share, on net sales of $1.1 billion.  Income from continuing operations, as adjusted, for the third quarter of 2018 was $51.4 million, or $0.68 per share. This compares to income from continuing operations, as adjusted, of $45.0 million or $0.50 per share in the third quarter of 2017. The Glossary at the end of this press release contains further details regarding these non-GAAP measures.

“We continue to see strong global demand for our products,” stated John L. Garrison, Terex Chairman and CEO.  “We increased sales, bookings, and backlog in the quarter.  AWP bookings grew by 50% to $601 million, reflecting continued strong demand for AWP products across all our major regions.  Overall backlog increased by 41% to $1.6 billion, led by a 72% increase in MP.”

“AWP continues to execute well, meeting growing customer demand and improving operating margins despite input cost headwinds including tariffs,” Mr. Garrison continued.  “MP had another excellent quarter.  It improved its operating margin again, as it continues to execute very well across its portfolio of businesses.”

Mr. Garrison added, “As a result of supply chain challenges our mobile crane operations did not achieve its production plan.   That led to lower Cranes revenue and margin in the quarter which impacts our outlook for the full year.”

“We continue to implement our Execute to Win priorities,” commented Mr. Garrison.  “We are seeing benefits from our Commercial Excellence initiative in our market performance and executing plans in Strategic Sourcing and Lifecycle Solutions designed to significantly improve future performance.”

Mr. Garrison concluded, “We are updating our full year 2018 adjusted EPS guidance to $2.60 to $2.70.  While our global markets remain strong, this guidance reflects our third quarter results, updated production plan in Cranes, higher input costs, including tariffs, and anticipated foreign exchange headwinds.”

Non-GAAP Measures and Other Items

Results of operations reflect continuing operations.  All per share amounts are on a fully diluted basis.  A comprehensive review of the quarterly financial performance is contained in the presentation that will accompany the Company’s earnings conference call.

In this press release, Terex refers to various GAAP (U.S. generally accepted accounting principles) and non-GAAP financial measures.  These non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures being disclosed by other companies.  Terex believes that this non-GAAP information is useful to understanding its operating results and the ongoing performance of its underlying businesses.

The Company provides guidance on a non-GAAP basis as the Company cannot predict with a reasonable degree of certainty the timing and magnitude of future charges that would be included in the reported GAAP results.

The Glossary at the end of this press release contains further details about this subject.

Conference call

The Company has scheduled a one hour conference call to review the financial results on Friday, November 2, 2018 at 8:30 a.m. ET.  John L. Garrison, Chairman and CEO, will host the call.  A simultaneous webcast of this call can be accessed at https://investors.terex.com.  Participants are encouraged to access the call 10 minutes prior to the starting time. The call will also be archived in the Event Archive at https://investors.terex.com.

GLOSSARY

In an effort to provide investors with additional information regarding the Company’s results, Terex refers to various GAAP (U.S. generally accepted accounting principles) and non-GAAP financial measures which management believes provides useful information to investors.  These non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures being disclosed by other companies.  In addition, the Company believes that non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not in lieu of, GAAP financial measures.  Terex believes that this non-GAAP information is useful to understanding its operating results and the ongoing performance of its underlying businesses.  Management of Terex uses both GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures to establish internal budgets and targets and to evaluate the Company’s financial performance against such budgets and targets.

The amounts described below are unaudited, are reported in millions of U.S. dollars (except share data and percentages), and are as of or for the period ended September 30, 2018, unless otherwise indicated.

2018 Outlook:  The Company’s 2018 outlook for earnings per share and 2018 full year adjusted forecasted tax rate are non-GAAP financial measures because they exclude items such as restructuring and other related charges, transformation costs, the impact of the release of tax valuation allowances, gains and losses on divestitures and other unusual items such as the impact of the 2017 US tax law changes. The Company is not able to reconcile these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measures without unreasonable efforts because the Company is unable to predict with a reasonable degree of certainty the exact timing and impact of such items. The unavailable information could have a significant impact on the Company’s full-year 2018 GAAP financial results. Adjusted EPS provides guidance to investors about the Company's EPS expectations excluding restructuring and other charges that the Company does not believe is reflective of its ongoing operations.

After-tax gains or losses and per share amounts are calculated using pre-tax amounts, applying a tax rate based on jurisdictional rates to arrive at an after-tax amount.  This number is divided by diluted weighted average shares outstanding to provide the impact on earnings per share.  The Company highlights the impact of these items because when discussing earnings per share, the Company adjusts for items it believes are not reflective of ongoing operating activities in the periods.  Restructuring and related charges are a recurring item as Terex’s restructuring programs usually require more than one year to fully implement and the Company is continually seeking to take actions that could enhance its efficiency.  Although recurring, these charges are subject to significant fluctuations from period to period due to varying levels of restructuring activity and the inherent imprecision in the estimates used to recognize the costs and taxes associated with severance and termination benefits in the countries in which the restructuring actions occur.
