Gates Industrial Corporation plc (NYSE:GTES), a leading global provider of application-specific fluid power and power transmission solutions, today reported results for the third quarter ended September 29, 2018.

Ivo Jurek, Gates Industrial's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Our focus on execution delivered another quarter of strong results, with top line growth driven by solid industrial end market and replacement channel demand. Both the Power Transmission and Fluid Power segments posted strong core growth, with accelerating momentum in replacement channels.  In September, the second of three planned increments of manufacturing capacity came online, which will allow us to better serve our customer base in the Fluid Power segment, where we experienced growth in nearly all end markets and regions in the quarter.  Additionally, our key growth initiatives and new product launches are performing well and remain on track."

Jurek added, "We are encouraged by our progress heading into 2019.  We have robust growth opportunities in our core markets and remain focused on executing our key growth initiatives, new product innovation, value analysis - value engineering projects and footprint optimization to deliver long-term value to our shareholders."

Third-Quarter Financial Results

Third-quarter net sales of $828.4 million increased 8.9% over the prior-year quarter net sales of $760.6 million, including 7.2% core revenue growth, which includes increased volumes across both segments as the Company continued to experience particularly strong demand in industrial end markets.  Regionally, North America contributed strong double-digit core growth, while emerging markets continued to perform well.  Recent acquisitions added 3.9% to net sales during the period, partially offset by a 2.2% negative impact from foreign currency.

Net income attributable to shareholders in the third quarter was $59.9 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to $13.2 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, in the prior-year period.  Adjusted Net Income, which primarily excludes amortization of certain intangibles, transaction-related expenses and foreign currency financing gains and losses, was $90.6 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, compared to $57.9 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, in the prior-year period.  The diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding in the third quarter of 2018 was 298,453,946 compared to 255,130,625 in the third quarter of 2017.

Third-quarter Adjusted EBITDA was $181.2 million, or 21.9% of net sales, compared to $164.1 million, or 21.6% of net sales in the prior-year quarter.  Excluding acquisitions which were not included in the prior-year period, Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded by approximately 50 basis points to 22.1% in the third quarter.

Fluid Power net sales increased 21.2% to $315.9 million in the third quarter, reflecting accelerating core revenue growth of 12.1%, incremental net sales from recent acquisitions of 11.3% and a partial offset from unfavorable foreign currency effects of 2.2%.  Core revenue growth continued to be driven by strong demand in industrial end markets, particularly in mobile hydraulic applications and other general industrial applications.  The Company also saw double-digit core revenue growth in both developed and emerging markets during the quarter.

Excluding acquisitions, Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 100 basis points over the prior-year quarter, driven largely by the impact of higher net sales and favorable price/cost dynamics.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

During the third quarter of 2018, the Company generated $48.4 million of cash from operations, driven by strong Adjusted EBITDA performance, offset partially by net outflows from the normal seasonality in working capital.  Third-quarter capital expenditures were $40.7 million, the largest portion of which represented investment in new manufacturing capacity in the Fluid Power segment.

As of September 29, 2018, the Company had total cash of $296.3 million and total outstanding debt of $3.0 billion, representing an improved net leverage ratio of 3.6 times Adjusted EBITDA.

2018 Outlook

The Company is maintaining its full-year 2018 outlook for net sales growth, core growth, Adjusted EBITDA and capital expenditures.  Total net sales growth is expected to be in a range of 10.0% to 12.0%, the core revenue growth component of which is expected to be 6.0% to 7.0%.  Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $745 million to $765 million.  Additionally, the Company expects total capital expenditures to be approximately $180 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Statements

This press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures, which management believes are useful to investors, securities analysts and other interested parties. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as its key profitability measure. This is a non-GAAP measure that represents EBITDA before certain items that impact comparison of the performance of our business either period-over-period or with other businesses. We use Adjusted EBITDA as our measure of segment profitability to assess the performance of our businesses, and it is used for total Gates as well because we believe it is important to consider our profitability on a basis that is consistent with that of our operating segments.

Management uses Adjusted Net Income as an additional measure of profitability. Adjusted Net Income is a non-GAAP measure that represents net income attributable to shareholders before certain items that impact comparison of the performance of our business, either period-over-period or with other businesses.

Core revenue growth is a non-GAAP measure that represents net sales for the period excluding the impacts of movements in foreign currency rates and the first-year impacts of acquisitions and disposals. We present core revenue growth because it allows for a meaningful comparison of year-over-year performance without the volatility caused by foreign currency gains or losses, or the incomparability that would be caused by the impact of an acquisition or disposal.

Management uses Free Cash Flow to measure cash generation and liquidity. Free Cash Flow is a non-GAAP measure that represents cash provided by (used in) operations less capital expenditures. Free Cash Flow Conversion is a measure of Free Cash Flow for the preceding twelve months expressed as a percentage of Adjusted Net Income for the same period. We use this metric as a measure of the success of our business in converting Adjusted Net Income into cash.

These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered only as supplemental to, and not as superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Please see below for a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Because GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis are not accessible, and reconciling information is not available without unreasonable effort, we have not provided reconciliations for forward-looking non-GAAP measures. For the same reasons, we are unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could be material to future results.
