Brink's Reports Second-Quarter Results, Reaffirms 2015 EPS Guidance

Non-GAAP EPS $.27 vs $.16

GAAP EPS Loss $(.26) vs $.02
Non-GAAP Profit Growth Driven by Global Cost Reductions, Latin America Results

RICHMOND, Va., July 30, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Brink’s Company (NYSE:BCO), a global leader in security-related services, today reported second-quarter earnings.

Second-Quarter Highlights

  • GAAP: Revenue down 11% on currency translation (6% organic growth); operating margin (1.9)%
    • GAAP operating loss due primarily to Venezuela non-cash impairment charge of $35 million
  • Non-GAAP: Revenue down 11% on currency translation (3% organic growth); operating margin 4.1%
    • Largest 5 Markets (U.S., France, Mexico, Brazil, Canada): Profits up 25% due to improvement in Mexico, France, U.S.; lower profits in Brazil
    • Global Markets (Latin America, EMEA, Asia): Profits up 20% due mainly to growth in Argentina
    • Negative currency translation reduced revenue by $118 million, operating profit by $6 million and earnings by $.07 per share

Tom Schievelbein, chairman, president and chief executive officer, said: “Despite persistent currency headwinds, second-quarter non-GAAP earnings came in well above year-ago results. The reorganization and restructuring activities that we began executing late in 2014 were a major contributor, and we remain on track to deliver $45 million to $50 million of year-over-year cost savings related to these activities. Our full-year EPS outlook has not changed. We expect 2015 non-GAAP earnings to be in a range between $1.55 and $1.75 per share. Based on continued currency pressure and year-to-date organic growth of 3%, our full-year revenue outlook has been reduced from $3.1 billion to approximately $3.0 billion.”

Amounts may not add due to rounding.
(a) Non-GAAP results are reconciled to the applicable GAAP results on page 14-15.
(b) Amounts reported are attributable to shareholders of The Brink’s Company and exclude earnings related to noncontrolling interests.
(c) Given the inability to repatriate cash, hyperinflation, fixed exchange rate policy, continued currency devaluations, and the difficulty raising prices and controlling costs, beginning in the first quarter 2015, our non-GAAP results exclude Venezuela operations. Management believes excluding Venezuela enables investors to more effectively evaluate the company’s performance between periods.
(d) In the second quarter of 2015, Brink’s elected to evaluate and pursue strategic options for the Venezuela business. As a result, we performed an impairment analysis and wrote down the book value of Venezuela property, plant and equipment to our best estimate of current fair value.
(e) Brink’s reorganized and restructured its business in December 2014 and recognized severance costs of $21.8 million associated with these actions in 2014. Additional charges of $0.3 million were recognized in the first half of 2015. See page 12 for more details.
(f) The effective income tax rate in the interim period is adjusted to be equal to the estimated full-year non-GAAP effective income tax rate. The full-year non-GAAP effective tax rate is estimated to be 42.0% for 2015 and was 45.7% for 2014.

(a) Includes operating results and gains/losses on acquisitions, sales and exits of businesses. The 2014 divestiture of an equity interest in a business in Peru is included in “Other items not allocated to segments”.
(b) The “Currency” amount is the sum of the “monthly currency changes” adjusted for any additional expense recorded under highly inflationary accounting rules. The “monthly currency change” is equal to the Revenues or Operating Profit for the month in local currency, on a country-by-country basis, multiplied by the difference in rates used to translate the current period amounts to U.S. dollars versus the translation rates used in the year-ago month. Venezuela is translated to the U.S. dollar under highly inflationary accounting rules. Net monetary assets in local currency are remeasured to U.S. dollars using current exchange rates with losses recognized in earnings. Nonmonetary assets under these rules are not remeasured to a lower basis in U.S. dollars when the currency devalues. Instead, these assets retain their higher U.S. dollar historical bases and the excess basis is recognized in earnings as each asset is consumed. Both of these effects are included in “Currency” in the “Other items not allocated to segments” line to reconcile to the GAAP amounts.
(c) Corporate expenses are not allocated to segment results. Corporate expenses include salaries and other costs to manage the global business and to perform activities required by public companies.
(d) See pages 12 and 13 for more information.

Corporate Expenses

Second quarter corporate expenses totaled $22 million, up slightly over last year. Corporate expenses include former non-segment and regional management costs, currency transaction gains and losses, and costs related to global initiatives.

Capital Expenditures and Capital Leases
Through June 30, capital expenditures and capital lease additions were $41 million compared to $58 million in 2014. Full-year 2015 expenditures are expected to total $140 million to $150 million.

Venezuela Impairment Charge
During the second quarter, the company wrote down the book value of Venezuela property, plant and equipment to $4 million (management’s current valuation estimate), resulting in a second-quarter pretax charge of $35 million ($.42 per share after taxes). This charge was not allocated to segment results and is excluded from non-GAAP results. The company previously recorded reductions in equity of $112 million due to cumulative Venezuela currency devaluations that, under certain circumstances, would result in a non-cash charge to GAAP earnings.

Income Taxes
On a GAAP basis, the second-quarter tax expense was $8 million (effective rate of negative 40%) versus $4 million (effective rate of 121%) in 2014. The tax rate in 2015 was affected by the large non-deductible Venezuela impairment charge recorded in the second quarter. As a result of the non-deductible Venezuela impairment and remeasurement charges, the full-year GAAP effective tax rate is expected to be in excess of 100%. Non-GAAP earnings for the second quarter reflect an effective tax rate of 42%, which is the full-year estimated non-GAAP effective tax rate.

Investor Day

FX devaluation in Venezuela The rate we use to remeasure operations in Venezuela declined significantly in February 2015 (from 52 to 170 bolivars to the U.S. dollar) and in March 2014 (from 6.3 to 50 bolivars to the U.S. dollar). These currency devaluations resulted in losses from the remeasurement of bolivar-denominated net monetary assets. Nonmonetary assets were not remeasured to a lower basis when the currency devalued. Instead, under highly inflationary accounting rules, these assets retained their higher historical bases and the excess is recognized in earnings as the asset is consumed, resulting in incremental expense until the excess basis is depleted. Expenses related to these Venezuelan devaluations have not been allocated to segment results.

Venezuela operations We have excluded from our segment results all of our Venezuela operating results, including foreign exchange devaluation discussed separately above, due to management’s inability to allocate, generate or redeploy resources in-country or globally. In light of these unique circumstances, the Venezuela business is largely independent of the rest of our global operations. As a result, the CODM, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, assesses segment performance and makes resource decisions by segment excluding Venezuela operating results. Additionally, management believes excluding Venezuela from segment results makes it possible to more effectively evaluate the company’s performance between periods.

Factors considered by management in excluding Venezuela results include:

  • Continued inability to repatriate cash to redeploy to other operations or dividend to shareholders
  • Highly inflationary environment
  • Fixed exchange rate policy
  • Continued currency devaluations and
  • Our difficulty raising prices and controlling costs

Venezuela impairment In the second quarter of 2015, we recognized an impairment of the Venezuela property, plant and equipment. This charge was not allocated to segment results.

2014 Reorganization and Restructuring Brink’s reorganized and restructured its business in December 2014, eliminating the management roles and structures in its former Latin America and EMEA regions and implementing a plan to reduce the cost structure of various country operations by eliminating approximately 1,700 positions across its global workforce. Severance costs of $21.8 million associated with these actions were recognized in 2014. Additional charges related to severance and lease terminations of $0.3 million were recognized in the first half of 2015. These amounts have not been allocated to segment results.

Mexican settlement losses Employee termination costs in Mexico are accounted for as retirement benefits under FASB ASC Topic 715, Compensation — Retirement Benefits. Settlement charges related to these termination benefits have not been allocated to segment results.

U.S. retirement plans Costs related to our frozen U.S. retirement plans have not been allocated to segment results. Brink’s primary U.S. pension plan settled a portion of its obligation in the fourth quarter of 2014 under a lump sum buy-out offer. Approximately 4,300 terminated participants were paid about $150 million of plan assets under this offer in lieu of receiving their pension benefit. A $56 million settlement loss was recognized as a result of the settlement.

Acquisitions and dispositions Gains and losses related to acquisitions and dispositions that have not been allocated to segment results are described below:

  • Brink’s sold an equity investment in a CIT business in Peru and recognized a $44.3 million gain in the third quarter of 2014. The gain on the sale and the equity earnings have not been allocated to segment results.
  • A favorable adjustment to the 2010 business acquisition gain for Mexico ($0.7 million in the third quarter of 2014) is not allocated to segment results.
  • A favorable adjustment to the purchase price of a third quarter 2014 business acquisition in EMEA ($0.3 million in the second quarter of 2015) is not allocated to segment results.

Share-based compensation adjustment Accounting adjustments related to share-based compensation have not been allocated to segment results ($4.2 million expense in the second quarter of 2014 and a $1.8 million benefit in the third quarter of 2014). The accounting adjustments revised the accounting for certain share-based awards from fixed to variable fair value accounting as noted in ASC Topic 718, Stock Compensation. As of July 11, 2014, all outstanding equity awards had met the conditions for a grant date as defined in ASC Topic 718 and have since been accounted for as fixed share-based compensation expense.

Non-GAAP Results Reconciled to GAAP (Unaudited)
(In millions, except for percentages and per share amounts)

Non-GAAP results described in this press release are financial measures that are not required by or presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The purpose of the Non-GAAP results is to report financial information excluding income and expenses that have not been allocated to segments (except for Corporate expenses which include salaries and other costs to manage the global business and to perform activities required by public companies). Non-GAAP results also adjust the quarterly Non-GAAP tax rates so that the Non-GAAP tax rate in each of the quarters is equal to the full-year Non-GAAP tax rate. The full-year Non-GAAP tax rate in both years excludes certain pretax and tax income and expense amounts. Amounts reported for prior periods have been updated in this report to present information consistently for all periods presented.

Our Non-GAAP results now exclude Venezuela operations due to our inability to repatriate cash, the inflationary economy, fixed exchange rate policy, continued currency devaluations, and our difficulty raising prices and controlling costs. Management believes excluding Venezuela operating results enables investors to more effectively evaluate the Company’s performance between periods.

The annual consolidated Non-GAAP outlook amounts for 2015 on page 8 are not reconciled to GAAP because we are unable to quantify certain amounts that would be required to be included in the GAAP measures without unreasonable effort.

The Non-GAAP information provides information to assist comparability and estimates of future performance. Brink’s believes these measures are helpful in assessing operations and estimating future results and enable period-to-period comparability of financial performance. In addition, Brink’s believes the measures will help investors assess the ongoing operations. Non-GAAP results should not be considered as an alternative to revenue, income or earnings per share amounts determined in accordance with GAAP and should be read in conjunction with their GAAP counterparts.
