Manitowoc Company, Inc. : The Manitowoc Company Reports Financial Results for 2012

Strong margin performance across Cranes and Foodservice;

2013 outlook for modest growth, continued margin expansion

The Manitowoc Company, Inc. (NYSE: MTW) today reported sales of $1.1 billion for the fourth quarter of 2012, an increase of 10.0 percent compared to sales of $1.0 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011. The sales increase was driven by an 11.6 percent increase in Crane segment sales, coupled with a 6.7 percent increase in Foodservice segment sales.

On a GAAP basis, the company reported net earnings of $34.5 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter versus earnings of $14.9 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2011. Both periods included special items. Excluding special items, the adjusted earnings from continuing operations were $35.4 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2012, versus adjusted earnings of $18.9 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2011. GAAP earnings per share in the quarter benefited from the release of an $11.6-million reserve as a result of a favorable tax audit outcome, which contributed to a full-year effective tax rate of 29 percent. A reconciliation of GAAP net earnings to net earnings before special items for the quarter and full-year periods is provided later in this press release.

For the full-year 2012, sales were $3.9 billion, an 8.5 percent increase from $3.6 billion in 2011. GAAP net income in 2012 was $101.7 million, or $0.76 per share, versus a GAAP net loss of $11.2 million, or $0.08 per share, in the prior year. Excluding the special items described in the reconciliation below, net earnings from continuing operations in 2012 were $103.7 million, or $0.78 per share, versus earnings of $49.8 million, or $0.37 per share, in 2011.

"We finished 2012 on a strong note. The steadfast execution against our strategic initiatives drove another quarter of positive sales growth and margin improvement, while our full-year results matched our revenue and earnings expectations. These results also demonstrated our ability to effectively manage our global businesses despite macroeconomic challenges," commented Glen E. Tellock, Manitowoc's chairman and chief executive officer. "Despite this prolonged and often volatile operating environment, we continue to believe we have the right strategy to continue expanding profitability across the entire Manitowoc enterprise as we look to 2013. In addition, we will continue to invest prudently in our strategies to leverage and enhance our market leadership positions."

Crane Segment Results

Fourth-quarter 2012 net sales in the Crane segment were $767.2 million, up 11.6 percent from $687.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, driven primarily by continued strong activity in the Americas region, as well as higher demand in emerging markets. The 11.6 percent sales growth includes a negative $11.6 million impact from currency exchange.

Crane segment operating earnings for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $56.3 million, compared to $38.8 million in the same period last year. This resulted in an operating margin of 7.3 percent for the fourth quarter of 2012, up from 5.6 percent in the same period in 2011. Fourth-quarter 2012 earnings were spurred by higher sales volume and operational efficiencies. Crane segment backlog totaled $756 million as of December 31, 2012, a slight decrease from $761 million in the prior-year quarter. Fourth-quarter 2012 orders of $544 million were 19 percent lower than the fourth quarter of 2011. However, second-half 2012 orders were essentially flat in comparison with second-half 2011.

"During the quarter we saw continued strength in the Americas region, coupled with positive performance in several emerging markets, including Brazil, Greater Asia/Pacific, and Africa. Our initiatives to drive meaningful margin expansion and take advantage of expected growth trends globally continue to take shape. We expect operational excellence to be a primary driver for Cranes in 2013 as our sustained focus on efficiency will not only enhance our competitive position, but also drive long-term profitability," Tellock continued.

Foodservice Segment Results

Fourth-quarter 2012 net sales in the Foodservice segment were $363.2 million, up 6.7 percent from $340.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The year-over-year increase was driven by balanced growth across all geographies, continued traction with new products, and engaged channel partners.

Foodservice operating earnings for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $50.3 million, up 12.0 percent from $44.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. This resulted in a Foodservice segment operating margin of 13.9 percent for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to an operating margin of 13.2 percent for the prior-year period. The year-over-year increase in margin was highlighted by product cost reductions and lean manufacturing initiatives that generated improved operating efficiencies across the segment.

"We expect a modest growth environment in 2013, which should produce continuing mid-teens margins given our ongoing investments in new technologies, operational improvements, and Lean initiatives. We remain true to the multiple strategies we have identified for Manitowoc Foodservice, and will continue to drive future performance through market share gains, greater innovation around our core brands, and improving operational efficiencies across our global footprint," Tellock explained.

Cash Flow & Credit Statistics

Cash flow from operating activities in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $233.2 million, compared to $197.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The increase was primarily generated by cash from profitability and reduced working capital levels. Debt reduction during the fourth quarter was $204 million, resulting in full-year debt reduction of approximately $80 million. Full-year 2012 earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) were $408.1 million, an increase of 16.9 percent over $349.2 million for full-year 2011. The combination of 2012 debt reduction and improving EBITDA resulted in a greater than one turn reduction in total leverage to 4.8 times at year-end. "I am pleased that we met our objective for more than one turn of leverage reduction in 2012. While our 2012 total debt reduction fell short of our full-year target, this metric was negatively impacted by a high volume of crane shipments occurring very late in the fourth quarter. As a result, our cash collections during the quarter were lower than anticipated, but are reflected in our accounts receivable. The realization of that cash will have a positive impact on our cash flow during the first quarter of 2013," Tellock explained.

2013 Guidance

For the full-year 2013, Manitowoc expects:

?-? Crane revenue - high single-digit percentage growth

?-? Crane operating margins - high single-digit percentage

?-? Foodservice revenue - mid single-digit percentage growth

?-? Foodservice operating margins - continuing mid-teens percentage

?-? Capital expenditures - approximately $100 million

?-? Depreciation & amortization - approximately $115 million

?-? Interest expense - approximately $125 million

?-? Amortization of deferred financing fees - approximately $10 million

?-? Debt reduction - to exceed $200 million

?-? Full-year effective tax rate in mid 30-percent range

The reconciliation of net income attributable to Manitowoc to Adjusted EBITDA is as follows (in millions):

   
Net income attributable to Manitowoc $ 101.7

GAAP Reconciliation

In this release, the company refers to various non-GAAP measures. We believe that these measures are helpful to investors in assessing the company's ongoing performance of its underlying businesses before the impact of special items. In addition, these non-GAAP measures provide a comparison to commonly used financial metrics within the professional investing community which do not include special items. Earnings and earnings per share before special items reconcile to earnings presented according to GAAP as follows (in millions, except per share data):
