Reported (GAAP) Results

The following results are for the 13 weeks ended September 27, 2019, compared to the 13 weeks ended September 28, 2018. Unless otherwise noted, all comparisons are versus the prior year quarter. Both the current and prior year quarters had 63 billing days.

  • Sales increased 2.0% to $2.2 billion. Current quarter sales include the unfavorable impacts of lower average copper prices and generally weaker foreign currencies. Adjusting for these impacts, organic sales increased 2.6%, as detailed in the table on page 9 of this release.
  • Gross profit increased 5.3% to $446.4 million. Gross margin of 20.1% increased by 60 basis points.
  • Operating expense increased by 3.0% to $344.6 million. Operating expense ratio of 15.5% compares to 15.4%.
  • Operating income increased 13.8% to $101.8 million. Operating margin of 4.6% compares to 4.1%.
  • Interest expense of $18.5 million compares to $19.3 million.
  • Other, net expense of $1.2 million compares to $1.6 million.
  • The effective tax rate of 27.8% compares to 30.6%.
  • Net income of $59.3 million compares to $47.6 million.
  • Earnings per diluted share of $1.73 compares to $1.40.
  • Working capital as a percentage of sales of 16.9% compares to 18.3%.

Adjusted (Non-GAAP) Measures

Please refer to the tables on pages 9 - 14 for the reconciliations of our reported results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP to the non-GAAP measures. Unless otherwise noted, all non-GAAP financial metrics that follow exclude the expense items detailed on page 11 of this release.

  • Adjusted operating expense of $335.8 million compares to $324.3 million, up 3.6%. Adjusted operating expense ratio of 15.1% compares to 14.9%. The increase in adjusted operating expense is due to $6.2 million of investment in innovation and business transformation strategies, combined with higher volume-related costs.
  • Adjusted operating income of $110.6 million increased 10.8% compared to $99.8 million. Adjusted operating margin of 5.0% compares to 4.6%.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $125.5 million compares to $111.2 million, up 12.9%. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 5.6% compares to 5.1%.
  • Adjusted effective tax rate of 27.6% compares to 30.6%.
  • Adjusted net income increased 20.2% to $65.8 million.
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share increased 19.3% to $1.92.

Ted Dosch, EVP and Chief Financial Officer, commented, "Our solid organic growth, gross margin improvement of 60 basis points, and strong expense discipline allowed us to continue our investment in our innovation and business transformation initiative and drive an increase in adjusted EBITDA margin of 50 basis points over the third quarter of 2018, and operating leverage of 5.5 times."

Segment Update

Network & Security Solutions ("NSS") reported record third quarter sales of $1.2 billion, an increase of 3.6%, or 4.3% on an organic basis. NSS security sales of $524.5 million, which represents approximately 45% of segment sales, increased 8.2%. Adjusted EBITDA increased 12.8% to $92.0 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 7.8% compares to 7.2%.

Electrical & Electronic Solutions (“EES”) reported third quarter sales of $580.1 million, a decrease of 2.9%, or decrease of 2.2% on an organic basis. Adjusted EBITDA increased 7.8% to $39.5 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 6.8%, compares to 6.1%.

Utility Power Solutions (“UPS”) reported record third quarter sales of $462.8 million, an increase of 4.3%, or 4.4% on an organic basis. Adjusted EBITDA increased 17.1% to $28.1 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 6.1% compares to 5.4%.

Cash Flow and Credit Metrics

We generated $206.4 million of cash flow from operations year-to-date, which compares to $102.8 million generated in the prior year period, driven by both stronger earnings and working capital performance. Working capital as a percentage of sales was 16.9%, which compares to 18.3% in the prior year quarter. We invested $27.5 million in capital expenditures year-to-date, reflecting investment in information technology and facilities, which compares to $32.0 million in the prior year period.

Key capital structure and credit-related statistics for the quarter:

  • Debt-to-total capital ratio of 38.2%, compares to 44.4% at the end of 2018
  • Debt-to-adjusted EBITDA ratio of 2.4 times compares to 3.0 times at the end of 2018
  • Weighted average cost of borrowed capital was 5.4% in both the current and prior year quarter
  • Over $750 million available under secured accounts receivable, inventory facilities and revolving lines of credit

Outlook

Galvin commented, "We believe that the positive sales trends that we realized in the first three quarters of 2019 will continue, based on our solid backlog and pipeline trends, and discussions with our customers and suppliers. We continue to see good demand, tempered by macro economic uncertainty in certain markets and flat or decelerating trends in certain key economic indicators."

Fourth Quarter Outlook

Our outlook for the fourth quarter sales growth is 2.0% - 4.0%, or organic growth of 2.5% - 4.5%. This outlook is being compared to a strong 2018 fourth quarter, which had a 5.1% growth rate. The cumulative two year growth rate would be 8.6% at the mid point of the outlook range.

Full Year Outlook

We are reaffirming our full year 2019 sales outlook of 4.0% - 5.0%. After adjusting for copper and foreign exchange, the organic sales growth outlook is 4.5% - 5.5%.

Based on our outlook for mid single digit sales growth and the related investment in working capital to support that growth, combined with our ongoing investment in innovation and business transformation, we reaffirm our previous estimate for full year cash flow from operations of $150 - $175 million and capital expenditures of $45 - $50 million, which will result in free cash flow of $105 - $125 million."

Safe Harbor Statement

The statements in this release other than historical facts are forward-looking statements made in reliance upon the safe harbor of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from what is indicated here. These factors include but are not limited to general economic conditions, the level of customer demand particularly for capital projects in the markets we serve, changes in supplier relationships or in supplier sales strategies or financial viability, risks associated with the sale of nonconforming products and services, political, economic or currency risks related to foreign operations, inventory obsolescence, copper price fluctuations, customer viability, risks associated with accounts receivable, risks associated with pension expense and funding, compliance with laws and regulations, the impact of investigative and legal proceedings and legal compliance risks, information security risks, disruption or failure of information systems, disruptions to logistics capability or supply chain, risks associated with substantial debt and restrictions contained in financial and operating covenants in our debt agreements, the impact and the uncertainty concerning the timing and terms of the withdrawal by the United Kingdom from the European Union, unanticipated change in our tax provision and tax liabilities related to the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and risks associated with integration of acquired companies, including, but not limited to, the risk that the acquisitions may not provide us with the synergies or other benefits that were anticipated. These uncertainties may cause our actual results to be materially different than those expressed in any forward looking statements. We do not undertake to update any forward looking statements. Please see our Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) filings for more information.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the results provided in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“U.S. GAAP”) above, this release includes certain financial measures computed using non-GAAP components as defined by the SEC. Specifically, net sales comparisons to the prior corresponding period, both worldwide and in relevant segments, are discussed in this release both on an U.S. GAAP and non-GAAP basis. We believe that by providing non-GAAP organic growth, which adjusts for the impact of acquisitions (when applicable), foreign exchange fluctuations, copper prices and the number of billing days (when applicable), both management and investors are provided with meaningful supplemental sales information to understand and analyze our underlying trends and other aspects of our financial performance. Historically and from time to time, we may also exclude other items from reported financial results (e.g., impairment charges, inventory adjustments, restructuring charges, tax items, currency devaluations, pension settlements, etc.) in presenting adjusted operating expense, adjusted operating income, adjusted income taxes and adjusted net income so that both management and financial statement users can use these non-GAAP financial measures to better understand and evaluate our performance period over period and to analyze the underlying trends of our business. We have also excluded amortization of intangible assets associated with purchase accounting from acquisitions from the adjusted amounts for comparison of the non-GAAP financial measures period over period.

EBITDA is defined as net income before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA before foreign exchange and other non-operating expense and non-cash stock-based compensation, excluding the other items from reported financial results, as defined above. Adjusted EBITDA leverage is defined as the percentage change in Adjusted EBITDA divided by the percentage change in net sales. We believe that adjusted operating income, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA leverage provide relevant and useful information, which is widely used by analysts, investors and competitors in our industry as well as by our management in assessing both consolidated and business segment performance. Adjusted operating income provides an understanding of the results from the primary operations of our business by excluding the effects of certain items that do not reflect the ordinary earnings of our operations. We use adjusted operating income to evaluate our period-over-period operating performance because we believe this provides a more comparable measure of our continuing business excluding certain items that are not reflective of expected ongoing operations. This measure may be useful to an investor in evaluating the underlying performance of our business. EBITDA provides us with an understanding of earnings before the impact of investing and financing charges and income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA further excludes the effects of foreign exchange and other non-cash stock-based compensation, and certain items that do not reflect the ordinary earnings of our operations and that are also excluded for purposes of calculating adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per share and adjusted operating income. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are used by our management for various purposes including as measures of performance of our operating segments and as a basis for strategic planning and forecasting. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA leverage may be useful to an investor because this measure is widely used to evaluate a company’s operating performance without regard to items excluded from the calculation of such measure, which can vary substantially from company to company depending on the accounting methods, book value of assets, capital structure and the method by which the assets were acquired, among other factors. They are not, however, intended as an alternative measure of operating results or cash flow from operations as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Non-GAAP financial measures provide insight into selected financial information and should be evaluated in the context in which they are presented. These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information presented in compliance with U.S. GAAP, and non-GAAP financial measures as reported by us may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in conjunction with the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, including the related notes, and Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations. Management does not use these non-GAAP financial measures for any purpose other than the reasons stated above.
