Reported (GAAP) Results

The following results are for the 14 weeks ended January 3, 2020, compared to the 13 weeks ended December 28, 2018. Unless otherwise noted, all comparisons are versus the prior year quarter. It is estimated that, due to the timing of holidays, there were 2 1/2 more effective selling days in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to 2018.

  • Sales increased 6.3% to $2.3 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 6.5%, as detailed in the table on page 10 of this release.
  • Gross profit increased 7.1% to $460.5 million. Gross margin of 20.4% increased by 15 basis points.
  • Operating expense increased by 9.4% to $375.1 million. Operating expense ratio of 16.7% compares to 16.2%.
  • Operating income decreased 2.2% to $85.4 million. Operating margin of 3.8% compares to 4.1%.
  • Interest expense of $18.8 million compares to $19.8 million.
  • Other, net income of $3.1 million compares to other, net expense of $7.6 million.
  • The effective tax rate of (45.1)% compares to 30.2%. (The full year effective tax rate of 10.4% compares to 30.0%).
  • Net income of $101.0 million compares to $41.8 million.
  • Earnings per diluted share of $2.93 compares to $1.22.
  • Working capital as a percentage of sales of 18.2% compares to 18.4%.

The following results are for the 53 weeks ended January 3, 2020, compared to the 52 weeks ended December 28, 2018.

  • Cash flow generated from operations of $227.9 million compares to $137.7 million.
  • Capital expenditures of $40.0 million compares to $42.4 million.

Adjusted (Non-GAAP) Measures

Please refer to the tables on pages 10 - 16 for the reconciliations of our reported results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP ("GAAP") to the non-GAAP measures. Unless otherwise noted, all non-GAAP financial metrics that follow exclude the expense items detailed on page 12 of this release, with the majority of these expenses related to the Merger Agreement announced on January 13, 2020.

  • Adjusted operating expense of $353.7 million compares to $333.8 million, up 6.0%. Adjusted operating expense ratio of 15.7% compares to 15.8%. The increase in adjusted operating expense is primarily due to $16 million of expenses related to an extra week of expenses in 2019 due to our fiscal calendar.
  • Adjusted operating income of $106.8 million increased 11.0% compared to $96.2 million. Adjusted operating margin of 4.7% compares to 4.5%.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $120.8 million compares to $108.5 million, up 11.3%. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 5.4% compares to 5.1%.
  • Adjusted effective tax rate of 17.4% compares to 28.6%. (The full year adjusted effective tax rate of 24.8% compares to 29.3%).
  • Adjusted net income increased 43.7% to $75.1 million.
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share increased 42.5% to $2.18.

Effective Tax Rate

The fourth quarter 2019 GAAP effective tax rate was (45.1)% and the adjusted non-GAAP effective tax rate was 17.4%. This decrease was due to a change in country mix of earnings and associated tax benefits from our continued movement to a U.S.-center-led business model, with the major impact coming from a lower U.S. tax rate on foreign derived income and the ability to utilize foreign tax credits, previously fully reserved. The fourth quarter 2019 GAAP effective tax rate includes a $45 million reversal of valuation allowances, and both the GAAP and adjusted rates reflect an adjustment to account for the change in the full year effective tax rate. The full year GAAP effective tax rate was 10.4% and the full year adjusted effective tax rate was 24.8%.

Ted Dosch, EVP and Chief Financial Officer, commented, "Our strong organic growth, continued gross margin improvement, and strong expense discipline enabled us to drive an increase in adjusted EBITDA margin of 30 basis points over the fourth quarter of 2018 and operating leverage of 1.8 times."

Segment Update

Network & Security Solutions ("NSS") reported record fourth quarter sales of $1.2 billion, an increase of 7.7%, or 8.0% on an organic basis. NSS security sales of $527.2 million, which represents approximately 44% of segment sales, increased 7.7%. Adjusted EBITDA increased 8.3% to $90.4 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 7.5% is the same as prior quarter.

Electrical & Electronic Solutions (“EES”) reported record fourth quarter sales of $598.9 million, an increase of 4.8%, or increase of 5.0% on an organic basis. Adjusted EBITDA increased 20.8% to $40.6 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 6.8% compares to 5.9%.

Utility Power Solutions (“UPS”) reported record fourth quarter sales of $448.9 million, an increase of 4.4% on a reported and on an organic basis. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 11.0% to $22.7 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 5.0% compares to 5.9%.

Cash Flow and Credit Metrics

We generated $227.9 million of cash flow from operations year-to-date, which compares to $137.7 million generated in the prior year period, driven by both stronger earnings and working capital performance. Working capital as a percentage of sales was 18.2%, which compares to 18.4% in the prior year quarter. We invested $40.0 million in capital expenditures year-to-date, reflecting investment in information technology and facilities, which compares to $42.4 million in the prior year period.

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

  • Debt-to-total capital ratio of 36.3%, compares to 44.4% at the end of 2018
  • Debt-to-adjusted EBITDA ratio of 2.2 times compares to 3.0 times at the end of 2018
  • Weighted average cost of borrowed capital of 5.5% is flat to the prior year quarter
  • Over $780 million available under secured accounts receivable, inventory facilities and revolving lines of credit

Outlook

Galvin commented, "We continue to see generally positive sales trends in the business, based on our solid backlog and pipeline, and discussions with our customers and suppliers."

First Quarter Outlook

Our outlook for the first quarter sales growth is 2% - 5%, and also organic growth of 2% - 5%. This outlook is being compared to a strong 2019 first quarter, which had an 8% organic growth rate. The cumulative two year growth rate would be 12% at the mid point of the outlook range.

Full Year 2020 Outlook

We are establishing our full year 2020 sales outlook of 1% - 5%. After adjusting for copper and foreign exchange, the organic sales growth outlook is 1% - 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 estimate full year cash flow from operations of $175 - $225 million and capital expenditures of $45 - $50 million, which will result in free cash flow of $125 - $180 million.

Subsequent Event

On January 13, 2020, Anixter and WESCO International, Inc. (WESCO) announced that their boards of directors have unanimously approved a definitive merger agreement under which WESCO will acquire Anixter in a transaction valued at approximately $4.5 billion. Under the terms of the agreement, each share of Anixter common stock will be converted into the right to receive $70.00 in cash (subject to increase), 0.2397 shares of WESCO common stock and preferred stock consideration valued at $15.89, based on the value of its liquidation preference. Based on the closing price of WESCO's common stock on January 10, 2020 and the liquidation preference of the WESCO preferred stock consideration, the total consideration represents approximately $100 per Anixter share, giving effect to the downside protection. Based on the transaction structure and the number of shares of WESCO and Anixter common stock currently outstanding, it is anticipated that WESCO stockholders will own 84% and Anixter stockholders will own 16% of the combined company.

For more information regarding the details of this transaction, please refer to our public filings on Anixter’s website at http://investors.anixter.com/financials/sec-filings.

Anixter will not be hosting a conference call with investors to discuss these results due to the merger agreement with WESCO.

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.
