Non-GAAP:

  • EPS $.55 vs $.58; revenue down 14% (0% organic growth); operating margin 6.6% vs 6.9%
  • Currency translation reduced revenue by $117 million, operating profit by $16 million, EPS by $.20
  • Operating profit down 17% (10% organic growth); organic growth in Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and Asia offset by declines in U.S. and EMEA and currency
  • Corporate expense down $5 million; lower tax rate and interest expense


Full-Year Highlights

GAAP

  • EPS ($.19) vs ($1.12); revenue down 14% (11% organic growth); operating profit $57 million vs $(28) million


Non-GAAP:

  • EPS $1.69 vs $1.01; revenue down 11% (3% organic growth); operating margin 5.3% vs 3.7%
  • Currency translation reduced revenue by $467 million, operating profit by $50 million, EPS by $.64
  • Operating profit up 26% (66% organic growth); strong organic growth in Argentina, Mexico and Asia offsets declines in U.S. and EMEA and currency
  • Corporate expense down $31 million; lower tax rate and interest expense

Tom Schievelbein, chairman, president and chief executive officer, said: “Fourth-quarter non-GAAP earnings came in well ahead of the guidance we provided in October and capped a year of strong profit growth. Results for the quarter were driven primarily by organic profit growth in Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and Asia, combined with reduced corporate expenses and a substantially lower tax rate. These factors were offset by profit declines in the U.S. and Europe and persistent currency headwinds. On a constant currency basis, fourth-quarter non-GAAP EPS rose 29% over a very strong year-ago quarter, and full-year non-GAAP EPS more than doubled.

“Despite continuing challenges in the U.S., our 2015 results reflect significant progress in our turnaround efforts in Mexico and disciplined execution in our cost reduction efforts. In 2016, we expect substantial profit growth in the U.S., continued improvement in Mexico, and ongoing cost reductions to help us achieve non-GAAP earnings in the $2.00 to $2.20 per share range on revenue of approximately $ 2.8 billion.”

Amounts may not add due to rounding.

(a) Non-GAAP results are reconciled to the applicable GAAP results on pages 15-16.
(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. 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.
(d) 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 $1.9 million were recognized in 2015. Brink's initiated an additional restructuring in the third quarter of 2015 and recognized $11.6 million in costs in the second half of 2015. Brink's recognized $1.8 million in costs in the fourth quarter of 2015 related to executive leadership and Board of Directors restructuring actions, which were announced in January 2016. See page 13 for more details.
(e) The non-GAAP tax rate excludes the U.S. tax on a transaction that accelerated U.S. taxable income because it will be offset by foreign tax benefits in future years.
(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 was 37.0% for 2015 and 45.7% for 2014.

Corporate Expenses

Fourth-quarter corporate expenses totaled $23 million, down from $29 million last year due to ongoing cost reduction efforts. Full-year corporate expenses totaled $85 million, down from $116 million in 2014. Corporate expenses include regional management costs, currency transaction gains and losses, costs related to global programs and initiatives, and costs to perform activities required by public companies.

Capital Expenditures and Capital Leases

Full-year capital expenditures and capital lease additions were $120 million compared to $148 million in 2014. In 2016, these expenditures are expected to total $120 million to $130 million.

Income Taxes

On a non-GAAP basis, the 2015 full-year income tax rate was 37%, down from 46% in 2014 due primarily to the recognition of foreign tax credits after completing a transaction that accelerated U.S. taxable income into 2015, and higher pre-tax earnings. The non-GAAP tax rate excludes the U.S. tax on the accelerated U.S. taxable income because it will be offset by foreign tax benefits in future years.

On a GAAP basis, 2015 tax expense was $67 million (effective rate of 162%) due primarily to significant non-deductible re-measurement and impairment charges in Venezuela and to a transaction that accelerated U.S. taxable income into 2015. The increased tax on the accelerated U.S. taxable income is expected to be offset by foreign tax benefits in future years. The 2014 GAAP effective rate of negative 75% on a pre-tax loss resulted primarily from the significant non-deductible re-measurement write-down in Venezuela.

Venezuela operations
We have excluded from our segment results all of our Venezuela operating results, including expenses related to currency devaluations ($34.3 million in 2015 and $142.7 million in 2014) and charges related to the impairment of property, plant and equipment ($35.3 million, majority of which was recognized in the second quarter of 2015), 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
  • Difficulty raising prices and controlling costs

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. An additional $1.9 million was recognized in 2015 related to the 2014 restructuring. Brink's initiated an additional restructuring of its business in the third quarter of 2015. We recognized $11.6 million in 2015 costs related to employee severance, contract terminations, and property impairment associated with the 2015 restructuring, which is expected to reduce the global workforce by an additional 1,000 to 1,200 positions and is projected to result in $25 to $35 million in 2016 cost savings. In addition, in 2015, we recognized $1.8 million in charges related to executive leadership and Board of Directors restructuring actions, which were announced in January 2016. We expect to recognize between $5 and $10 million of additional restructuring costs in 2016. These amounts have not been allocated to segment results.

U.S. and Mexican 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. Employee termination costs in Mexico are accounted for as retirement benefits under FASB ASC Topic 715, Compensation — Retirement Benefits. Settlement charges ($4.6 million in 2015 and $5.9 million in 2014) related to these termination benefits in Mexico have not been allocated to segment results.

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.
  • Brink's sold its 70% interest in a cash management business in Russia in the fourth quarter of 2015 and recognized a $5.9 million loss on the sale.
  • Brink's recognized $0.4 million in pretax charges in the fourth quarter of 2015 related to a real estate transaction in Mexico. The transaction did not qualify for sale-leaseback accounting under U.S. GAAP rules due to continuing involvement with the property. A financing liability of $14 million was recognized for the cash proceeds received in the transaction. When the continuing involvement conditions expire, a gain will be recognized, equal to the difference between the financing liability and the remaining net book value of the property.

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 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 hyper 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 2016 on page 9 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 ongoing operations and estimating future results and enable period-to-period comparability of financial performance. 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.
