Manitowoc reports Net Sales of $329.2 million; Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $16.3 million

The Manitowoc Company, Inc. (NYSE: MTW), (the “Company” or “Manitowoc”) a leading global manufacturer of cranes and lifting solutions, today reported a first-quarter net loss of $7.8 million, or $0.22 per diluted share. First-quarter adjusted net loss(1) of $6.3 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, declined $9.0 million year-over-year. First-quarter adjusted net loss included $4.0 million of other expense – net, or $0.11 per diluted share, primarily related to foreign currency losses. The Company also reported net sales of $329.2 million and adjusted EBITDA(1) of $16.3 million, or 5.0% of sales.

First-quarter orders of $375.0 million declined 15.0% from the prior year. Orders were unfavorably impacted by approximately $5.1 million due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Backlog as of March 31, 2020 totaled $520.9 million.

As of March 31, 2020, the Company had total liquidity of $382.0 million, including $103.6 million of cash, $244.2 million of borrowing capacity on its Asset Based Lending revolving credit facility and $38.2 million of availability on its non-committed European overdraft lines. During the quarter, the Company did not borrow on its Asset Based Lending revolving credit facility.

“Our first-quarter adjusted EBITDA of $16.3 million was in line with our planned expectations, despite the unprecedented conditions created by the COVID-19 pandemic. This was made possible by the extraordinary commitment of our talented and resolute team. During this pandemic, our primary goal remains unchanged, ensuring the safety, health and well-being of all our employees, their families, our suppliers and customers. Our dedicated teams are working hard to deliver cranes and provide essential parts and services, and I could not be prouder of their commitment to our high standards while balancing personal challenges. We are grateful for the efforts our healthcare providers and first responders are making, and we are proud to support these front-line professionals by committing $100,000 from The Manitowoc Company Foundation in the fight against COVID-19,” commented Barry L. Pennypacker, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Manitowoc Company, Inc.

“While we have remained operational in the U.S., our major facilities in Europe began closing in mid-March which delayed our ability to ship products. It is unclear how events unfold from here, however with ample liquidity and no significant debt maturities until 2026 we are well positioned to weather circumstances like this crisis. We continue to analyze all of our costs and take appropriate actions. We have substantially cut discretionary spending, while eliminating salary increases across the enterprise, including executives and board members. Furloughs, as well as temporary plant shutdowns, are also being planned based upon our order rates. In order to proactively manage our liquidity, we are significantly cutting our capital spending this year as well as suspending our share buyback program. Manitowoc entered this uncertain period as a more agile company and market leader with a strong balance sheet, and I am confident that we will emerge stronger when end markets successfully recover,” concluded Pennypacker.

2020 Outlook

Due to uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company withdrew guidance on March 27, 2020 and is not providing a financial outlook for 2020 at this time. While Manitowoc, its suppliers and customers operations have begun to resume activity, the Company does expect a significant impact to its second quarter and full year results due to the magnitude of supply chain and business disruptions. For now, the Company anticipates weaker demand levels to continue in the near term. In response to these challenges, the Company has reduced its production levels and initiated a set of cost reduction actions and will continue to closely monitor market conditions and adjust its plans accordingly.

Investor Conference Call

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP Items

Adjusted net income (loss), diluted adjusted net income (loss) per share, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted operating cash flows and free cash flows are financial measures that are not in accordance with GAAP. Manitowoc believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide important supplemental information to both management and investors regarding financial and business trends used in assessing its results of operations. Manitowoc believes excluding specified items provides a more meaningful comparison to the corresponding reporting periods and internal budgets and forecasts, assists investors in performing analysis that is consistent with financial models developed by investors and research analysts, provides management with a more relevant measure of operating performance and is more useful in assessing management performance.
