Jason Industries Reports Third Quarter 2015 Results

Organic Sales Growth of 3 Percent

Margin Expansion Driven by Acoustics and Components

Revises Full Year Guidance on Softening Demand

MILWAUKEE, Oct. 30, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jason Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:JASN) (NASDAQ:JASNW) today reported third quarter 2015 net sales of $171.2 million, net loss of $3.2 million and diluted loss per share of $0.16. These results included pre-tax restructuring and integration costs of $2.4 million and pre-tax share based compensation expense of $1.5 million. For the third quarter of 2015 adjusted net loss was $0.5 million and adjusted loss per share was $0.02.

“Solid organic sales growth in the quarter was driven by volume strength in Seating and Components, helping us overcome volume softness in Acoustics. Finishing achieved organic growth in an uneven economic environment with demand slowing during the quarter,” commented David Westgate, Jason’s Chief Executive Officer. “While I am pleased with our gains in the market, we experienced operational inefficiencies in Seating while trying to efficiently manage production with the growth. We are focused on improving our operational execution and returning this business to its historical margins.”

Third Quarter 2015 Financial Results (versus the year ago period):

Net sales growth in Seating, Finishing, and Components offset volume softness in Acoustics, excluding the impact of foreign currency. Net sales of $171.2 million increased $10.0 million, or 6.2 percent. Net sales were negatively impacted by $6.2 million, or 3.8 percent, of foreign currency translation. Net sales includes $11.3 million, or 7.0 percent, of acquisition growth from the acquisition of DRONCO within Finishing. Excluding the impact of foreign currency and acquisitions, organic sales growth was 3.0 percent.

Adjusted EBITDA was $18.6 million, or 10.9 percent of net sales, compared with $13.1 million, or 8.1 percent of net sales. Adjusted EBITDA margin expansion of 280 bps was driven by significant operational improvements in Acoustics and lower input costs on metals products in Components. The Adjusted EBITDA increase of $5.5 million was negatively impacted by $0.5 million, or 3.8 percent, of foreign currency translation.

Net loss was $3.2 million compared with net loss of $9.8 million. Adjusted net loss was $0.5 million compared with adjusted net loss of $2.9 million.

For the nine months ended September 25, 2015, net cash provided by operating activities was $32.3 million. Capital expenditures were $23.9 million, an increase of $6.3 million, due to higher investment in Acoustics, supporting automotive underbody platform awards and long-term organic growth. Free cash flow was $5.7 million, and was positively impacted by improved working capital and lower incentive compensation payments as compared to 2014.

Net debt to Adjusted EBITDA on a pro forma trailing twelve-month basis was 4.8x as of the end of the third quarter. Total liquidity as of the end of the third quarter was $91.6 million, comprised of $44.4 million of cash and cash equivalents and $47.2 million of availability on revolving loan facilities globally.

Third Quarter 2015 Segment Results (versus the year ago period):

Seating

Seating net sales of $37.2 million increased $4.8 million, or 14.9 percent, negatively impacted by foreign currency translation of $0.3 million, or 0.8 percent. Sales benefited significantly as heavy weight motorcycle seating volumes shifted from the second to the third quarter. In addition, volumes grew from initial shipments of new business awards in heavy industry and power sports seating. Adjusted EBITDA was $2.9 million, or 7.8 percent of net sales, compared with $3.6 million, or 11.0 percent of net sales. Adjusted EBITDA was negatively impacted by operational inefficiencies associated with these large volume increases and changing product mix.

Finishing

Finishing net sales of $52.3 million increased $7.2 million, or 15.8 percent, including net sales of $11.3 million from the acquisition of DRONCO, and a negative foreign currency translation impact of $4.6 million, or 10.3 percent. Excluding the impact of foreign currency and acquisitions, organic sales growth was 1.2 percent with softening global industrial demand and delayed customer projects during the quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was $7.2 million, or 13.8 percent of net sales, compared with $5.7 million, or 12.6 percent of net sales, and was negatively impacted by foreign currency translation of approximately $0.4 million.

Acoustics

Acoustics net sales of $51.8 million decreased $2.3 million, or 4.2 percent, and were negatively impacted by foreign currency translation of $1.3 million, or 2.3 percent. Excluding the impact of foreign currency, organic sales were 1.9 percent lower driven by unplanned automotive assembly plant shutdowns during the quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was $7.0 million, or 13.6 percent of net sales, compared with $4.3 million, or 7.9 percent of net sales. In 2014 Adjusted EBITDA was negatively impacted by operational inefficiencies related to the accelerated closure of the Norwalk, Ohio manufacturing facility and the expansion of the Battle Creek facility. Adjusted EBITDA margin improved sequentially for the fourth consecutive quarter, resulting from continuing operational efficiencies and lower raw material pricing.

Components

Net sales in Components of $29.9 million increased $0.3 million, or 1.1 percent, with continuing strong volume growth in metal rail freight car products. Adjusted EBITDA was $5.2 million, or 17.4 percent of net sales, compared with $1.0 million, or 3.5 percent of net sales, with margin expansion driven by improved operating efficiency, favorable mix of higher margin metals components, and lower steel prices.

Fiscal 2015 Outlook:

“We remain focused on continued improvement in execution, cash flow generation and strengthening our balance sheet,” Westgate continued. “While we see areas of strength from gains we are making in the market, there were signs of slowing end-markets during the quarter. In Finishing, demand during the quarter trended lower from industrial and distribution customers, while in Acoustics, assembly plant shutdowns were driven by inventory adjustments by our automotive customers. We expect ongoing uneven demand in these businesses and we are closely monitoring these end markets. We continue to focus on countermeasures to help offset these challenges, however we believe it is prudent to lower our full year guidance given the current environment.”

For 2015, Jason now expects net sales in the range of $702 to $712 million and Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $81 to $84 million. On a constant currency basis, expected organic sales growth would be in the range of 0 to 1 percent. Prior guidance was net sales in the range of $708 to $723 million and Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $87 to $91 million.

Non-GAAP and Other Company Information

Included in this press release are certain non-GAAP financial measures designed to complement the financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America because management believes such measures are useful to investors. Because the Company’s calculations of these measures may differ from similar measures used by other companies, you should be careful when comparing the Company’s non-GAAP financial measures to those of other companies. In this earnings release, we disclose the following non-GAAP financial measures, and we reconcile these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures: EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings Per Share, Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA, and Free Cash Flow.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin - The Company defines EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest expense, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation and amortization and (gain)/loss on disposal of property, plant and equipment. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA, excluding the impact of operational restructuring charges and non-cash or non-operational losses or gains, including long-lived asset impairment charges, integration and other operational restructuring charges, transactional legal fees, other professional fees and special employee bonuses, purchase accounting adjustments, sponsor fees and expenses, and non-cash share based compensation expense. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA Margin as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net sales.

Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides a clear picture of the Company’s operating results by eliminating expenses and income that are not reflective of the underlying business performance. The Company uses this metric to facilitate a comparison of operating performance on a consistent basis from period to period and to analyze the factors and trends affecting its segments. The Company’s internal plans, budgets and forecasts use Adjusted EBITDA as a key metric and the Company uses this measure to evaluate its operating performance and segment operating performance and to determine the level of incentive compensation paid to its employees.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share - The Company defines Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share (calculated on a diluted basis) as net income and earnings per share (as defined by GAAP), excluding the impact of operational restructuring charges and non-cash or non-operational losses or gains, including long-lived asset impairment charges, integration and other operational restructuring charges, transactional legal fees, other professional fees and special employee bonuses, purchase accounting adjustments, sponsor fees and expenses, and non-cash share based compensation expense, net of their income tax impact. The tax rates used to calculate adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share are based on a transaction specific basis. Adjusted earnings per share includes the impact of share based compensation to the extent it is dilutive in each period. Adjusted earnings per share includes the impact to Jason Industries common shares upon conversion of JPHI Holdings Inc. rollover shares and conversion of preferred stock. Management believes that Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share are useful in assessing the Company’s financial performance by eliminating expenses and income that are not reflective of the underlying business performance.

Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA - The Company defines Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA as current and long-term debt plus debt discounts less cash and cash equivalents, divided by pro forma Adjusted EBITDA for the trailing twelve months. Pro forma Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as Adjusted EBITDA as reported plus Adjusted EBITDA of acquisitions prior to the date of the acquisition during the trailing twelve months. Management believes that Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA is useful in assessing the Company’s financial leverage.

Free Cash Flow - The Company defines Free Cash Flow as net cash flows from operating activities (as defined by GAAP) less capital expenditures and cash dividends on preferred stock. Management believes that Free Cash Flow is useful in assessing our ability to generate cash from business operations that is available for strategic capital decisions.

In addition to these non-GAAP financial measures, we also use the term “organic sales” to refer to GAAP net sales from existing operations excluding (i) sales from acquired businesses recorded prior to the first anniversary of the acquisition (“acquisition sales”), and (ii) the impact of foreign currency translation. The impact of foreign currency translation is calculated as the difference between (a) the period-to-period change in results (excluding acquisitions) and (b) the period-to-period change in results (excluding acquisitions) after applying current period average foreign exchange rates to the prior year period. We use the term “organic sales growth” to refer to the measure of comparing current period organic sales with the corresponding period of the prior year.

On June 30, 2014, the Company completed its acquisition of Jason Partners Holdings Inc. (the “Predecessor”) (the “Business Combination”), at which point Jason, the Successor, became a new entity for financial reporting purposes. Accordingly, the consolidated financial statements of the Successor on or after June 30, 2014 are not comparable to the consolidated financial statements of the Predecessor prior to that date. However, for the readers’ convenience the Company has combined net sales and Adjusted EBITDA in the period June 30, 2014 through December 31, 2014 with Jason’s predecessor net sales and Adjusted EBITDA in the period January 1, 2014 through June 29, 2014. Net sales and Adjusted EBITDA were not significantly affected by acquisition accounting.

*Note: The application of acquisition accounting for the Business Combination significantly affected certain assets, liabilities, and expenses. As a result, financial information in the period June 30, 2014 through December 31, 2014 is not comparable to Jason’s predecessor financial information. Therefore, the Company did not combine certain financial information in the period June 30, 2014 through December 31, 2014 with Jason’s predecessor financial information in the period January 1, 2014 through June 29, 2014 for comparison to prior periods. We have combined our net sales and Adjusted EBITDA in (1) the period June 30, 2014 through September 26, 2014 with Jason’s predecessor net sales and Adjusted EBITDA in the period June 28, 2014 through June 29, 2014, which comprises Jason’s fiscal third quarter, and (2) in the period June 30, 2014 through December 31, 2014 with Jason’s predecessor net sales and Adjusted EBITDA in the period January 1, 2014 through June 29, 2014, which comprises Jason’s fiscal full year 2014. Net sales and Adjusted EBITDA were not affected by acquisition accounting.

(1) Restructuring includes costs associated with exit or disposal activities as defined by US GAAP related to facility consolidation, including one-time employee termination benefits, costs to close facilities and relocate employees, and costs to terminate contracts other than capital leases.
(2) Transaction-related expenses primarily consist of professional service fees related to the Business Combination and other related transactions, as well as the Company’s acquisition and divestiture activities.
(3) Integration and other restructuring costs primarily includes equipment move costs and incremental facility preparation and related costs incurred in connection with the closure of the Norwalk, Ohio facility and the start-up of new acoustics segment facilities in Warrensburg, Missouri and Richmond, Indiana. Such costs are not included in restructuring for US GAAP purposes. During the second quarter of 2015, integration and other restructuring costs also include $1.4 million of severance and expenses related to the transition of the Company’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO), partially offset by a $0.8 million gain resulting from termination of an unfavorable lease recorded in acquisition accounting for the Business Combination.
(4) Represents fees and expenses paid by Jason to Saw Mill Capital LLC and Falcon Investment Advisors, LLC under the Management Services Agreement dated September 21, 2010, which terminated upon consummation of the Business Combination.
(5) Represents the gain on sale of the 50% equity interests in two joint ventures that was completed during the first quarter of 2014.
(6) Represents non-cash share based compensation expense for awards under the Company’s 2014 Omnibus Incentive Plan. During the second quarter of 2015, share based compensation includes $0.9 million of expense due to accelerated vesting of RSU’s related to the transition of the Company’s CFO.

(1) The tax impact of adjustments is calculated using an effective tax rate of 38 percent, except as otherwise indicated. The effective tax rate on adjustments is impacted by nondeductible foreign transaction and restructuring costs, restructuring charges in foreign jurisdictions at statutory tax rates, and discrete non-cash tax expense related to the vesting of restricted stock units for which no tax benefit will be realized.
(2) Adjusted earnings per share includes the impact of share-based compensation to the extent it is dilutive in each period. Adjusted earnings per share includes the impact to Jason Industries common shares upon conversion of JPHI Holdings Inc. rollover shares and conversion of preferred stock.
