Jason Industries Reports Second Quarter 2016 Results

MILWAUKEE, Aug. 04, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jason Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:JASN) (NASDAQ:JASNW) (“Jason” or the “Company”) today reported second quarter 2016 net sales of $185.7 million, net loss of $2.4 million and diluted loss per share of $0.13. These results included pre-tax restructuring of $1.8 million. For the second quarter of 2016, adjusted net loss was $1.9 million and adjusted loss per share was $0.07.

/EIN News/ -- “The second quarter was a disappointing quarter for us as significant end market slowdowns impacted Components and Seating,” said Jeffry N. Quinn, chairman and chief executive officer of Jason. “Seating was impacted by an early end to the turf care season and overall volume softness. Components saw decelerating volumes for railcar products as customers rapidly delayed orders at the end of the quarter. We expect both of these trends to continue throughout the back half of this year and into 2017.”

“While we have made progress addressing the issues in our plants, we are not yet performing up to our expectations. Improving the consistency of our results remains our highest priority.  As we fix our operating issues, we have also taken the initial actions in our global cost reduction program and achieved savings in the quarter as expected. We will enhance and accelerate that program to manage through changing end markets to better position Jason for the long term.”

Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results (versus the year ago period):

Lower volumes in Seating and Components offset growth in Acoustics and Finishing. Net sales of $185.7 million decreased $1.9 million, or 1.0 percent. Net sales were negatively impacted by $0.2 million, or 0.1 percent, of foreign currency translation. Net sales includes $7.5 million, or 4.0 percent, of acquisition growth from the acquisition of DRONCO within Finishing. Excluding the impact of foreign currency and acquisitions, organic sales decreased 4.9 percent.

Net loss was $2.4 million compared with net loss of $0.9 million. Diluted loss per share was $0.13 compared with diluted loss per share of $0.07. Adjusted net loss was $1.9 million compared with adjusted net income of $3.4 million. Adjusted loss per share was $0.07 compared with adjusted earnings per share of $0.12.

Adjusted EBITDA was $18.8 million, or 10.1 percent of net sales, compared with $24.9 million, or 13.3 percent of net sales. Adjusted EBITDA decreased $6.1 million on lower volumes in Seating and Components, new platform launch inefficiencies in Acoustics, and corporate investments in operational improvement initiatives. Global cost reduction program savings were $2.4 million in the second quarter and $2.7 million year-to-date in 2016.

For the six months ended July 1, 2016, net cash provided by operating activities was $20.8 million compared with $21.5 million. Capital expenditures were $12.1 million, a decrease of $3.2 million. Free cash flow was $5.9 million compared with free cash flow of $4.4 million, and was positively impacted by improved working capital and lower capital expenditures and was reduced by $8.5 million due to timing of interest and dividend payments relative to the end of the fiscal period.

Net debt to Adjusted EBITDA on a pro forma trailing twelve-month basis was 5.6x as of the end of the second quarter. Total liquidity as of the end of the second quarter was $88.4 million, comprised of $41.3 million of cash and cash equivalents and $47.1 million of availability on revolving loan facilities globally.

Second Quarter 2016 Segment Results (versus the year ago period):

Seating
Seating net sales of $44.7 million decreased $7.2 million, or 13.9 percent, with lower volumes in heavyweight motorcycle, heavy industry and an early end to the turf care season. Adjusted EBITDA was $5.6 million, or 12.6 percent of net sales, compared with $9.3 million, or 17.9 percent of net sales. Adjusted EBITDA was negatively impacted by lower volumes, operational inefficiencies, and higher overhead costs related to investments in improving operations.

Finishing
Finishing net sales of $53.2 million increased $6.6 million, or 13.9 percent, including net sales of $7.5 million from the acquisition of DRONCO, and a negative foreign currency translation impact of $0.3 million, or 0.6 percent. Excluding the impact of foreign currency and acquisitions, organic sales decreased 1.5 percent with lower U.S. industrial demand. Adjusted EBITDA was $7.6 million, or 14.4 percent of net sales, compared with $6.7 million, or 14.4 percent of net sales, and was favorably impacted by $1.2 million of savings from the global cost reduction program.

Acoustics
Acoustics net sales of $63.2 million increased $7.2 million, or 12.8 percent, and were favorably impacted by foreign currency translation of $0.2 million, or 0.3 percent. Excluding the impact of foreign currency, organic sales growth was 12.5 percent driven by increased volumes on new platform awards. Adjusted EBITDA was $6.8 million, or 10.7 percent of net sales, compared with $7.3 million, or 13.1 percent of net sales. Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased due to new platform launch inefficiencies as production volumes ramped during the quarter, partially offset by favorable material pricing and $0.7 million of cost reduction program savings.

Components
Net sales in Components of $24.6 million decreased $8.3 million, or 25.3 percent, with significantly lower rail car component volumes and lower demand for industrial metal products. Adjusted EBITDA was $3.3 million, or 13.5 percent of net sales, compared with $5.5 million, or 16.8 percent of net sales. Adjusted EBITDA decreased on lower volumes, transitional costs related to moving production to San Luis Potosi, Mexico, partially offset by favorable material pricing.

Corporate
Corporate expenses of $4.6 million increased $0.6 million, primarily due to $1.2 million of costs for manufacturing and supply chain improvement initiatives and training, and investments in enhancing the Company’s organizational structure, leadership, and talent.

2016 Guidance:

Brian Kobylinski, president and chief operating officer of Jason, stated, “We successfully executed the initial actions in our global cost reduction program and will achieve $7 million in selling and administrative cost reductions in 2016. However, weakening end markets and additional investments required to fix our operations are offsetting much of our anticipated progress. With a lower sales outlook for the year, we are increasing our working capital focus and capital expenditure management while accelerating additional actions to further reduce expenses, rationalize footprint, and right size our cost structure.”

For 2016, Jason now expects net sales in the range of $715 to $730 million and Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $73 to $76 million. Prior guidance was net sales in the range of $735 to $750 million and Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $84 to $90 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 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, 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.

(1) Represents non-cash impairment charges of $58.8 million and $35.3 million related to impairment of goodwill and other intangible assets, respectively, in the seating segment.

(2) Restructuring includes costs associated with exit or disposal activities as defined by 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.

(3) Transaction-related expenses primarily consist of professional service fees related to the Company’s acquisition and divestiture activities.

(4) During 2016, integration and other restructuring costs primarily includes costs incurred in connection with the start-up of a new acoustics segment facility in Richmond, Indiana. During 2015, integration and other restructuring costs includes 1) equipment move costs and incremental facility preparation and related costs incurred in connection with the start-up of new acoustics segment facilities in Warrensburg, Missouri and Richmond, Indiana, and 2) $5.9 million of severance and expenses related to the transitions of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Chief Financial Officer (CFO), partially offset by 3) a $0.8 million gain resulting from termination of an unfavorable lease recorded in acquisition accounting. Such costs are not included in restructuring for GAAP purposes.

(5) Represents non-cash share based compensation expense (income) for awards under the Company’s 2014 Omnibus Incentive Plan. During the second quarter of 2016, share-based compensation includes $2.5 million of expense reversal as a result of the lowering of assumed vesting levels for Adjusted EBITDA performance share units. During 2015, share based compensation includes $2.9 million of expense due to accelerated vesting of RSU’s related to the transition of the Company’s CEO and CFO.

(1) The effective tax rate on adjustments is impacted by nondeductible foreign transaction and restructuring costs, nondeductible impairment of goodwill, 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.

(3) In 2015, the Company did not exclude losses and gains on disposals of fixed assets from adjusted net income due to insignificance. Loss (gain) on disposals of fixed assets for the first quarter of 2016 includes a loss of $0.6 million on a seating segment facility held for sale.
