Anixter International Inc. Reports First Quarter 2015 Results

By Business Wire News   



GLENVIEW, Ill.

Anixter International Inc. (NYSE: AXE) today reported record first quarter sales of $1.39 billion for the quarter ended April 3, 2015, an 8.7 percent increase compared to the year-ago quarter. The current quarter and year-ago quarter each had 65 billing days. The favorable impact from the Tri-Ed acquisition was partially offset by macroeconomic headwinds including the sharply stronger US dollar and weaker average copper prices. As a result, organic sales increased by 2.2 percent year-over-year.

On February 12, 2015, we announced that we entered into a definitive agreement to sell the OEM Supply – Fasteners (“Fasteners”) segment to American Industrial Partners for $380 million, with an expected closing in the second quarter of 2015. All commentary in this release reflects continuing operations unless otherwise noted. Please refer to the tables at the end of this release for the reconciliations to GAAP from the adjusted numbers as reported.

EBITDA of $65.5 million, or 4.7 percent of sales, compares to $66.7 million, or 5.2 percent of sales, in the prior year quarter. The decline in margin was caused by the mix impact from strong growth in our security business, unfavorable impacts of foreign exchange and lower average copper prices, and competitive pricing pressure in the market.

Net income from continuing operations of $26.5 million compares to $37.7 million in the prior year quarter. The currency, copper and pricing impacts mentioned above account for nearly half of the decline, and higher depreciation, interest and amortization resulting from the Tri-Ed acquisition accounting for the remainder of the decrease. This results in an adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $0.81 compared to $1.14 in the prior year quarter.

“While we delivered strong growth in sales and profits in our security business, overall the quarter was challenging. Enterprise Cabling & Security Solutions (“ECS”), our largest segment, delivered its third consecutive quarter of strong revenue performance; however, operating performance was negatively impacted by competitive margin pressure. While margin was solid in our Electrical and Electronic Wire & Cable (“W&C”) segment, our sales growth was negatively affected by copper and slower industrial growth, especially related to the oil and gas sector in Canada. From a geographic perspective, we delivered our strongest organic growth in the US; however, North America was significantly impacted by the weaker Canadian macro environment,” commented Bob Eck, President and CEO. “Importantly, we made significant strategic progress in the quarter as we began to sharpen our focus on our cabling and security businesses and improve the return on capital. As part of this effort, the announced sale of our Fasteners segment enables us to better direct resources toward areas that will maximize shareholder value in both the near term and the long term.”

Income Statement Detail

Gross margin of 22.3 percent in the current quarter improved 20 basis points sequentially, reflecting improved margin in our W&C segment, and compares to 22.9 percent in the prior year quarter. The acquisition of Tri-Ed accounts for 30 basis points of the year-over-year margin decrease. The remaining year-over-year margin decrease was caused by lower margins in ECS reflecting faster growth in legacy security sales, in addition to currency headwinds and competitive pressures.

Operating expense of $250.0 million compares to $241.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, which included $1.5 million in acquisition and integration costs. On an adjusted basis, sequential operating expense increased by 4.3 percent. On a year-over-year basis, operating expense compares to $221.8 million in the prior year quarter. Excluding $23.6 million of expense for the impact of Tri-Ed and favorable foreign currency of $8.2 million, adjusted operating expense would have increased by 5.2 percent. Current quarter operating expense includes the incremental impacts of approximately $3.3 million from the previously disclosed higher pension and other employee benefit costs, $0.8 million of bad debt expense and approximately $1.0 million of severance costs. Further adjusting for these items, operating expense would have increased 3.1 percent.

Adjusted EBITDA margin in the current quarter of 5.3 percent compares to 6.2 percent in the year-ago quarter. The operating expense items identified above negatively impacted adjusted EBITDA margin in the current quarter by 30 basis points. The remaining change in adjusted EBITDA margin versus prior year reflects lower W&C sales combined with lower average copper prices, lower ECS gross margin, and foreign currency headwinds, partially offset by strong operating expense management.

Interest expense of $14.2 million increased by $4.1 million compared to the prior year quarter. The increase in interest expense results from the Senior notes due 2021 issued in September 2014 to fund the Tri-Ed acquisition and incremental interest expense from a new bank term loan, partially offset by the retirement of the notes that matured in the first quarter of 2014, notes that matured in the first quarter of 2015, and lower balances for the accounts receivable securitization facility and revolving lines of credit.

Foreign exchange and other expense of $4.0 million compares to $9.7 million in the year ago period, primarily due to the large currency devaluation in Venezuela and Argentina in the prior year quarter.

Our effective tax rate of 35.6 percent increased from the prior year adjusted effective rate of 34.6 percent, primarily due to a change in the country mix of earnings, in part due to the acquisition of Tri-Ed.

Segment Update

Enterprise Cabling and Security Solutions (“ECS”) sales of $915.8 million compares to $776.8 million in the prior year period, a 17.9 percent increase, driven by an increase in security sales, both from Tri-Ed and our legacy business. Adjusting for the $27.9 million unfavorable impact from foreign exchange on current year sales and the $141.8 favorable impact from the Tri-Ed acquisition, ECS organic sales increased by 2.7 percent.

Geographically, organic sales increased by 3.0 percent in North America and 12.5 percent in EMEA, partially offset by a 5.5 percent decrease in Emerging Markets.

Record quarter ECS security sales of $375.9 million, which represents approximately 40 percent of total segment sales, increased from $217.9 million in the prior year quarter. Excluding the favorable impact of Tri-Ed sales and the $6.6 million negative currency impact, organic security sales growth was 6.5 percent. The strength we experienced in the second half of 2014 continued, reflecting the success of actions we took mid year 2014 to significantly strengthen our legacy security business.

ECS operating income of $36.3 million decreased by 3.1 percent versus $37.6 million. Currency had a $1.3 million unfavorable impact on the current quarter. Operating margin of 4.0 percent compares to 4.8 percent in the year-ago quarter. The acquisition of Tri-Ed accounts for 20 basis points of the decline, with currency headwinds, product mix and competitive pricing pressures causing the remainder of the weakness.

ECS adjusted EBITDA of $45.5 million compares to $42.5 million in the prior year quarter. The corresponding margin of 5.0 percent compares to 5.5 percent in the prior year quarter.

Electrical and Electronic Wire & Cable (“W&C”) sales of $469.3 million compares to $497.5 million in the prior year period. Excluding the $18.6 million unfavorable impact from foreign exchange and the $15.8 million unfavorable impact from lower average copper prices, W&C organic sales increased by 1.2 percent.

Geographically, organic sales growth of 3.6 percent in North America reflected strong sales growth in the US, partially offset by slowing trends in Western Canada. Weakness in the oil and gas sector continued to impact sales and operating profit. Sales decreased by 3.7 percent in EMEA and 5.4 percent in Emerging Markets, both versus prior year on an organic basis.

W&C operating income of $26.2 million compares to operating income of $35.3 million in the year-ago quarter. Operating margin of 5.6 percent compares to 6.3 percent in the prior quarter. The decline in operating margin versus the prior quarter was caused by the unfavorable impacts of lower copper prices and currency headwinds combined with the overall weaker macro environment, all creating significant negative operating expense leverage.

W&C adjusted EBITDA of $30.5 million compares to $39.8 million in the prior year quarter. The corresponding adjusted EBITDA margin of 6.5 percent compares to 8.0 percent in the prior year quarter.

Discontinued Operations

As a result of the previously announced sale of Anixter’s Fasteners segment, this segment has been reclassified as an “Asset Held for Sale” and has been reported as Discontinued Operations beginning in the current quarter, and 2014 results have been restated to reflect this classification. The segment delivered sales of $249.4 million and operating income of $11.9 million in the current quarter. Also included in Discontinued Operations are $2.2 million of costs associated with the transaction.

Cash Flow and Leverage

Net cash provided from operations was $18.0 million for the current quarter, which compares to $8.0 million in the prior year quarter. The increase in cash generation reflects lower working capital investment in the business. Capital expenditures of $10.9 million in the current quarter compares to $9.0 million in the prior year quarter. For the full year we expect to invest approximately $50 million in capital investments while generating over $150 million in cash flow from operations.

“While we experienced strong growth in certain of our markets, overall the macro environment drove larger-than-expected currency, copper and pricing effects. Consequently, we are focusing on additional opportunities to drive cost reduction that we believe will improve our long term cost structure and profitability,” commented Ted Dosch, Executive Vice President – Finance and CFO. “We are pleased with the successful integration of Tri-Ed, which delivered expected synergies to the combined security businesses in the first quarter. Finally, with the cash flow we expect to generate from operations and proceeds from the sale of our Fasteners business, our goal is to return to our target debt-to-capital range of 45 – 50 percent during 2015, excluding any further M&A activity.”

Key capital structure and credit-related statistics for the quarter:

  • Debt-to-total capital ratio of 51.9% compares to 51.6% at the end of 2014
  • Weighted average cost of borrowed capital of 4.6% compares to 4.8% in the year-ago quarter
  • $291 million available under revolving lines of credit and accounts receivable securitization facility at quarter end

Business Outlook

“Overall, our first quarter 2015 organic sales growth of 2.2 percent was at the low end of the outlook we provided at the beginning of the year. Looking ahead, we expect the positive trends in our security business to continue, and are cautiously optimistic that improved market conditions in our network infrastructure business that began in late 2014 will persist. While our Wire & Cable business delivered sales that were below our expectations, we are pleased with the margin stabilization in the business.” commented Bob Eck. “We believe that the balance of the year will bring with it more uncertainty in both the macro economic environment and within our industry so we have expanded the range for our sales growth outlook and now believe that full year organic sales growth from continuing operations will be in the 0 – 4 percent range.”

Safe Harbor Statement

The statements in this release other than historical facts are forward-looking statements made in reliance upon the safe harbor of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from what is indicated here.These factors include but are not limited to general economic conditions, the level of customer demand particularly for capital projects in the markets we serve, changes in supplier sales strategies or financial viability, risks associated with the sale of nonconforming products and services, political, economic or currency risks related to foreign operations, inventory obsolescence, copper price fluctuations, customer viability, risks associated with accounts receivable, the impact of regulation and regulatory, investigative and legal proceedings and legal compliance risks and risks associated with integration of acquired companies.These uncertainties may cause our actual results to be materially different than those expressed in any forward looking statements.We do not undertake to update any forward looking statements.Please see our Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) filings for more information.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the results provided in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) above, this release includes certain financial measures computed using non-GAAP components as defined by the SEC. Specifically, net sales comparisons to the prior corresponding period, both worldwide and in relevant segments, are discussed in this release both on a GAAP basis and non-GAAP basis. We believe that by reporting non-GAAP organic growth, which adjusts for the impact of acquisitions (when applicable), foreign exchange fluctuations and copper prices, both management and investors are provided with meaningful supplemental sales information to understand and analyze our underlying trends and other aspects of our financial performance. Beginning in 2015, we calculate the year-over-year organic sales growth impact relating to the Tri-Ed acquisition by including the 2014 results with our results (on a “pro forma” basis) as we believe this represents the most accurate representation of organic growth, considering the nature of the company we acquired and the synergistic revenues that have been achieved. From time to time, we may also exclude other items from reported financial results (e.g., impairment charges, inventory adjustments, restructuring charges, tax items, currency devaluations, etc.) so that both management and financial statement users can use these non-GAAP financial measures to better understand and evaluate our performance period over period and to analyze the underlying trends of our business.

EBITDA is defined as net income from continuing operations before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA before foreign exchange and other non-operating expense and non-cash stock-based compensation, excluding the other special items from reported financial results, as defined above. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are presented because we believe they are useful indicators of our performance and our ability to meet debt service requirements. They are not, however, intended as an alternative measure of operating results or cash flow from operations as determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

Non-GAAP financial measures provide insight into selected financial information and should be evaluated in the context in which they are presented. These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information presented in compliance with GAAP, and non-GAAP financial measures as reported by us may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in conjunction with the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.Management does not use these non-GAAP financial measures for any purpose other than the reasons stated above.
