Jason Industries Reports First Quarter 2017 Results

Margin Expansion on Lower Revenue Base
Reaffirms Full Year Guidance

MILWAUKEE, May 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jason Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:JASN) (NASDAQ:JASNW) (“Jason” or the “Company”) today reported results for first quarter 2017.

Key financial results for the first quarter 2017 versus the year ago period include:

  • Net sales of $175.2 million decreased 8.3 percent and included a negative 2.2 percent impact from the planned exit of non-core businesses in the margin expansion program and a negative 1.0 percent from foreign currency translation.
  • Operating income of $7.8 million, or 4.4 percent of net sales, improved $5.6 million from 1.1 percent of net sales on improved operational results on lower sales and lower restructuring costs.
  • Net loss of $0.4 million, or $0.05 diluted loss per share, decreased $2.1 million or $0.10 per share.
  • Free cash flow was negative $0.5 million, a decline of $2.5 million, due to a nonrecurring working capital reduction in the prior year, partially offset by lower capital expenditures and a non-cash preferred dividend. Total liquidity was $88.3 million, an increase of $4.6 million.

On an adjusted basis, first quarter 2017 results versus the year ago period include:

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $18.6 million, or 10.6 percent of net sales, improved $0.2 million from 9.6 percent of net sales due to the execution on cost reduction and margin expansion projects and lower selling and administrative expenses.
  • Adjusted Net Income of $0.3 million, or $0.01 Adjusted Earnings Per Share, declined $0.01 per share.

“We delivered more EBITDA during the first quarter versus prior year on sixteen million less sales,” said Brian Kobylinski, chief executive officer of Jason. “As expected, certain of our end markets remained soft due to inflated levels of channel inventory and we saw an overall five percent organic sales contraction. However, our Finishing business returned to organic growth and our commercial teams secured targeted conversions in all of our business segments. Additionally, we completed a number of our cost reduction and margin expansion projects and our lean transformation is gaining momentum as we continue to drive cash flow.”

Total Cost Reduction and Margin Expansion program savings were $4.6 million in the first quarter with a total of $14.6 million since the inception of the program. Actions taken and announced to-date are expected to achieve $22 million in annual run-rate cost savings of the $30 million target to be achieved by the end of 2018. Highlights from the program and other activities include:

  • Concluded wind down of the Brazil operations, finalizing the Company’s exit from low-margin business within the Finishing segment.
  • Consolidation of Components facilities in Libertyville, Illinois well under way and is on track for completion in the fourth quarter.
  • Successfully executed a sale leaseback of a core U.S. facility subsequent to the first quarter, generating $5.6 million in net proceeds.

Key financial results within the segments for the first quarter 2017 versus the year ago period include:

  • Finishing net sales of $49.5 million decreased $0.8 million, or 1.6 percent, including a negative foreign currency translation impact of 2.4 percent and a negative 1.1 percent impact from the exit of a non-core market in Brazil. Organic sales increased 1.9 percent with higher volumes in North America. Adjusted EBITDA was $7.1 million, or 14.3 percent of net sales, an increase of $1.8 million from 10.4 percent of net sales. Adjusted EBITDA was positively impacted by savings resulting from the cost reduction program.
  • Components net sales of $21.1 million decreased $5.7 million, or 21.3 percent, including a negative 13.3 percent impact from the exit of non-core product lines upon closure of the Buffalo Grove, Illinois facility. Organic sales decreased 8.0 percent with lower rail volumes, partially offset by increased volumes of smart utility meter components. Adjusted EBITDA was $2.7 million, or 12.9 percent of net sales, a decrease of $1.9 million from 17.2 percent of net sales, and was negatively impacted by lower volumes, unfavorable product mix and higher material costs, partially offset by savings resulting from the cost reduction program.
  • Seating net sales of $47.4 million decreased $4.6 million, or 8.8 percent, including a negative foreign currency translation impact of 0.7 percent. Organic sales decreased 8.1 percent on lower volumes in motorcycle and turf care. Adjusted EBITDA was $5.5 million, or 11.7 percent of net sales, a decrease of $1.1 million from 12.8 percent of net sales, and was negatively impacted by lower volumes and unfavorable product mix, partially offset by savings resulting from the cost reduction program.
  • Acoustics net sales of $57.2 million decreased $4.7 million, or 7.6 percent, including a negative foreign currency translation impact of 0.5 percent. Organic sales decreased 7.1 percent due to short-term automotive assembly plant shutdowns, partially offset by new platform awards. Adjusted EBITDA was $6.7 million, or 11.7 percent of net sales, an increase of $0.1 million from 10.7 percent of net sales due to improved labor and material productivity and savings resulting from the cost reduction program, partially offset by lower volumes.
  • Corporate expenses of $3.5 million decreased $1.3 million on lower spend and staffing levels.

2017 Guidance:

“We are beginning to see the results of our quality, delivery, portfolio optimization and cost reduction initiatives reflected in our financial performance and the rate of new business awards received in the quarter. We continue to aggressively pursue further operational improvement opportunities while driving growth via new customers, new markets, and new products.”

For the full year 2017, Jason reaffirms guidance of net sales in the range of $650 to $670 million and Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $64 to $67 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. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA, excluding the impact of operational restructuring charges and non-cash or non-operational losses or gains, including goodwill and long-lived asset impairment charges, gains or losses on disposal of property, plant and equipment, integration and other operational restructuring charges, transactional legal fees, other professional fees, purchase accounting adjustments, 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 more 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 goodwill and long-lived asset impairment charges, gains or losses on disposal of property, plant and equipment, integration and other operational restructuring charges, transactional legal fees, other professional fees, purchase accounting adjustments, 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, (ii) sales from divested businesses or exited non-core businesses, and (iii) 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, divestitures, and exited non-core businesses) and (b) the period-to-period change in results (excluding acquisitions, divestitures, and exited non-core businesses) 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 prior year period organic sales.
