company logo

  • Record net sales of $1.64 billion for full year 2013, up 11.9 percent over prior year
  • Record operating income of $103.2 million for full year 2013, up 46.4 percent over prior year
  • Record quarterly net sales of $458 million for 4th quarter 2013, up 10.2 percent over prior year
  • Record annual gross profit and profit margins of $215.1 million and 13.2 percent, respectively

LAFAYETTE, Ind., Feb. 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wabash National Corporation (NYSE:WNC) reported fourth quarter 2013 net income of $10.4 million, or $0.15 per diluted share on record quarterly net sales of $458 million compared to fourth quarter 2012 net income of $80.2 million, or $1.16 per diluted share on net sales of $416 million. The Company's fourth quarter 2013 results include the impact of an early extinguishment of debt charge totaling $0.6 million related to a $20 million term loan prepayment made in December 2013. Excluding the impact of this item, non-GAAP adjusted earnings for the fourth quarter were $10.8 million, or $0.15 per diluted share. Earnings for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 included an income tax benefit of $59.0 million, or $0.86 per diluted share, primarily related to the reversal of the Company's valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets. Excluding the income tax benefit and other one-time charges of $0.5 million related to the acquisitions of Walker Group Holdings ("Walker") on May 8, 2012 and certain assets of Beall Corporation ("Beall") on February 4, 2013, non-GAAP adjusted earnings were $21.7 million, or $0.32 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2012. Furthermore, if the tax rate used in computing the fourth quarter of 2012 results was 40 percent, consistent with the tax rate in 2013, non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2012 would have been reduced to $0.19 per diluted share.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 the Company reported net income of $46.5 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, on net sales of $1.64 billion, compared to net income of $105.6 million, or $1.53 per diluted share, on net sales of $1.46 billion for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012. Full year 2013 results included one-time charges of $2.8 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, related to the early extinguishment of debt and the acquisitions of Walker and certain assets of Beall. Full year 2012 results included one-time charges of $18.2 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, related to the acquisitions of Walker and certain assets of Beall as well as the income tax benefit from the reversal of the Company's valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets. Excluding the impact of these items, non-GAAP adjusted earnings for full year 2012 were $64.8 million, or $0.95 per diluted share. Furthermore, if the tax rate used in computing prior period results was 40 percent, consistent with the tax rate in 2013, non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share for the full year 2012 would have been lowered to $0.57 per diluted share.

The Company reported operating income of $24.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to operating income of $29.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. Operating EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure that excludes the effects of costs related to the acquisitions of Walker and certain assets of Beall, as well as other recurring and non-recurring items, for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $35.6 million, a decrease of $3.2 million compared to operating EBITDA for the previous year period. For full year 2013, the Company generated operating EBITDA of $149.9 million, or 9.2 percent of net sales, as compared to $118.5 million, or 8.1 percent of net sales, for the previous year period. The year-over-year improvement in operating performance is attributable to the successful execution of the Company's growth strategy and disciplined approach to improving profitability, including an improved mix of higher-margin trailer orders driven by a focus on margin over volume, diversification into higher-margin opportunities through the acquisitions of Walker and certain assets of Beall as well as the organic growth of the Diversified Products Group, and operational improvements in the manufacturing facilities.

The following is a summary of select operating and financial results for the past five quarters:

Dick Giromini, president and chief executive officer, stated, "Overall, 2013 was truly a transformational and record setting year for Wabash National. Growth initiatives driven by our long-term strategic plan to transform the company into a diversified industrial manufacturer continued to gain traction and momentum throughout the year. We're now beginning to realize the full benefits of the strategic actions we've taken in the financial and operating performance being delivered by all segments of the business, as demonstrated by record net sales of $1.64 billion, record gross profit of $215.1 million, and a 200 basis point improvement in gross margin to 13.2 percent. Our performance for the year further substantiates the significant progress we have made in our transformation efforts, and underscores our commitment to long-term profitable growth. Additionally, we continue to implement further operational improvements throughout the business while integrating our strategic acquisitions, and remain committed to enhancing our long-term margin and growth profile."

Mr. Giromini continued, "New trailer shipments of 46,800 for the year were consistent with our previous full year guidance of 46,000 to 47,000 trailers. We look forward to 2014 with a healthy backlog of orders totaling $711 million and a trailer demand forecast well above replacement levels for the third consecutive year. As fleet age, customer profitability, used trailer values, regulatory compliance and access to financing all support continued demand for new trailers, we believe 2014 has the potential to exceed the record performances achieved in 2013."

Fourth Quarter Business Segment Highlights

The table below is a summary of select segment operating and financial results prior to the elimination of intersegment sales for the fourth quarter of 2013 and 2012, respectively. A complete disclosure of the results by individual segment is included in the tables following this release.

Three months ended December 31,

New trailers shipped 13,500 800 700
Net sales $ 323,825 $ 122,366 $ 46,511
Gross profit $ 20,961 $ 26,110 $ 4,498
Gross profit margin 6.5% 21.3% 9.7%
Income from operations $ 14,288 $ 13,488 $ 8

2012
New trailers shipped 10,200 800 900
Net sales $ 258,048 $ 143,405 $ 46,722
Gross profit $ 18,742 $ 30,811 $ 4,891
Gross profit margin 7.3% 21.5% 10.5%
Income from operations $ 12,755 $ 20,288 $ 570
Income from operations margin 4.9% 14.1% 1.2%

Commercial Trailer Products' net sales increased $66 million or 25.5 percent, on 13,500 trailers, or 3,300 more trailers than the prior year period. This increase in revenue was primarily due to the 32.4 percent increase in trailer shipments during the quarter offset by a 6.1% reduction in average selling prices compared to the prior year period due to customer and product mix. As a result, gross profit increased $2.2 million as compared to the same period last year, but gross margins declined 80 basis points to 6.5 percent compared to the prior year period. Operating income increased to $14.3 million, or $1.5 million higher than the fourth quarter last year due to increased volume and continued operational improvements.

Diversified Products' net sales decreased $21 million, or 14.7 percent, primarily attributed to a change in mix of product shipments as compared to the previous year period. Compared to the prior year period, gross profits and margins declined $4.7 million and 20 basis points, respectively, due primarily to the reduced volume levels. Operating income decreased $6.8 million, as compared to the same period last year, primarily due to lower net sales and increased intangible amortization charges associated with the recent acquisitions of Walker and certain assets of Beall.

Retail's net sales of $47 million were consistent with the prior year period as lower shipments of new trailers were offset by higher parts and service demand. However, gross profit margins declined 80 basis points to 9.7 percent due to increased cost of services in order to support strategic growth initiatives. Operating income decreased $0.6 million during the fourth quarter of 2013 as compared to the same period last year due to higher selling and administrative expenses related to our strategic growth initiatives.

2014 Outlook

Mr. Giromini further commented, "We expect to continue the momentum from 2013 into 2014 with strong trailer demand, top-line and bottom-line growth across all business segments and the continued execution of our growth and diversification strategy. The demand environment for trailers remained healthy throughout 2013, as evidenced by our current backlog exceeding $711 million, an increase from the prior year of approximately $45 million or 7%. In addition, current industry forecasts point to strong demand levels throughout 2014 with projections well above replacement demand and exceeding 2013 levels. Based on our current quote and order activities, our existing backlog and customer feedback regarding their current year needs, we expect 2014 demand will exceed 2013."

Term Loan Voluntary Partial Prepayment

The Company made its third voluntary term loan partial prepayment in the amount of $20 million in December. At current interest rate levels, these partial payments in addition to the closing of the amendment and repricing of the term loan facility in May 2013 have successfully reduced the Company's annual cash interest costs by approximately $7 million. Jeff Taylor, senior vice president and chief financial officer commented, "The strong cash flow from operations and overall financial performance provided us the ability to voluntarily prepay a portion of our outstanding balances on our term loan facility. Managing our capital structure will remain a priority throughout 2014, and the $60 million in voluntary term loan prepayments made during 2013 demonstrates our continued commitment to executing against our plan."

Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to disclosing financial results calculated in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the financial information included in this release contain non-GAAP financial measures, including Operating EBITDA, Operating EBITDA margin, adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per diluted share.

These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures and results calculated in accordance with GAAP, including net income, and reconciliations to GAAP financial statements should be carefully evaluated.

Operating EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, and other non-operating income and expense, as well as certain charges in connection with the Company's acquisitions of Walker and certain assets of Beall. Management believes Operating EBITDA provides useful information to investors regarding our results of operations. The Company provides this measure because we believe it is useful for investors to understand our performance period to period with the exclusion of the recurring and non-recurring items identified above. Management believes the presentation of Operating EBITDA, when combined with the primary GAAP presentation of operating income, is beneficial to an investor's understanding of the Company's operating performance. A reconciliation of Operating EBITDA to net income is included in the tables following this release.

Adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per diluted share reflect adjustments for non-recurring charges related to the Company's acquisitions of Walker and certain assets of Beall, the impact of the release of the valuation allowances recorded against the Company's net deferred tax assets as well as one-time costs related to losses incurred on the early extinguishment of debt for the term loan prepayments made during 2013. Management believes providing this measure and excluding these items facilitate comparisons to the Company's prior year periods and, when combined with the primary GAAP presentation of net income and diluted net income per share, is beneficial to an investor's understanding of the Company's performance. A reconciliation of adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per diluted share to net income and diluted net income per share is included in the tables following this release.
