NN, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2018 Results

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- NN, Inc., (NASDAQ: NNBR), a diversified industrial company, today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Operating Segment Recasting

As previously disclosed in January 2018, NN implemented a new enterprise and management structure and reorganized its businesses into three new segments.  In the first quarter of 2018, NN began reporting its financial results based on these segments.

GAAP Results

Net sales for the second quarter of 2018 increased $38.4 million, or 24%, to $196.3 million, compared to $157.9 million for the second quarter of 2017.  The increase was driven by sales from acquisitions of $37.2 million and organic sales growth of $3.4 million.

On a GAAP basis, income (loss) from operations for the second quarter of 2018 was $(0.3) million, compared to $12.6 million for the same period in 2017.  Net loss on a GAAP basis for second quarter of 2018 was $(24.5 million). This compares to net loss on a GAAP basis of $(21.1 million) in the second quarter of 2017.  The second quarter of 2018 included $6.8 million in acquisition costs on a pretax basis and $12.9 million in debt extinguishment costs on a pre-tax basis.  The second quarter of 2017 net loss included $39.6 million in debt extinguishment costs on a pretax basis and $5.2 million of income from discontinued operations, net of tax.

On a GAAP basis, income from operations for second quarter 2018 in the Life Sciences segment was $2.0 million, compared to $3.8 million for the same period in 2017.

On a GAAP basis, income from operations for second quarter 2018 in the Mobile Solutions segment was $7.4 million, compared to $10.7 million for the same period in 2017.

On a GAAP basis, income from operations for second quarter 2018 in the Power Solutions segment was $6.0 million, compared to $6.8 million for the same period in 2017.

Adjusted Results

Adjusted income from operations for the second quarter of 2018 was $24.8 million, compared to $19.8 million for the same period in 2017.  Adjusted net income increased to $10.5 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, from $8.8 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, for the same period in 2017.

Richard Holder, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "During the quarter, we continued to execute on our strategy toward building a balanced diversified industrial company.  With the completion of our acquisition of Paragon Medical this quarter, we are now well-positioned to grow all of our businesses organically.  Our operating performance in the quarter was consistent with our expectations despite incurring much higher than planned spending on investments in new programs in our Mobile Solutions segment."

Life Sciences

Net sales for the second quarter of 2018 were $59.2 million, compared to $23.1 million in the second quarter of 2017, an increase of 156% or $36 million.  Adjusted income from operations for the quarter was $12.9 million, compared to $6.0 million in 2017.

Mr. Holder commented, "We continued to build upon our momentum in Life Sciences, with the completion of our acquisition of Paragon Medical.  With strengthened technical capabilities, expanded products and finished device offerings, and the addition of key talent, Life Sciences is well-positioned for sustained future growth.  Our integration efforts related to the acquisition of Paragon Medical remain on track."

Mobile Solutions

Net sales for the second quarter of 2018 were $88.1 million, compared to $86.7 million in the second quarter of 2017, an increase of 1.6% or $1.4 million.  Adjusted income from operations for the quarter decreased $2.5 million to $9.1 million, compared to $11.6 million in the second quarter of 2017.

Mr. Holder commented, "Mobile Solutions had approximately twice the number of sales programs starting-up than normal which led to greater than planned spending within the quarter."

Power Solutions

Net sales for the second quarter of 2018 were $49.8 million, compared to $48.7 million in the second quarter of 2017, an increase of 2.2% or $1.1 million.  Adjusted income from operations for the quarter was $10.8 million, compared to $9.5 million in 2017.

Mr. Holder commented, "Power Solutions continues to show growth primarily through Aerospace and Defense investments.  We recently announced investments into state-of-the-art technologies, consistent with NN's balanced portfolio approach and overall focus on expanding our capabilities in the Electrical and Aerospace end markets."

The full set of financial guidance for the second quarter of 2018 can be found in our supplemental presentation posted in the Investor Relations section of our website at www.nninc.com.

NN will discuss its results during its quarterly investor conference call on August 9, 2018 at 9:00 a.m. ET.  The call and supplemental presentation may be accessed via NN's website, www.nninc.com.

The Company discloses in this presentation the non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted income from operations, adjusted net income (loss), and adjusted net income per diluted share.  Each of these non-GAAP financial measures provides supplementary information about the impacts of acquisition, divestiture and integration related expenses, foreign-exchange impacts on inter-company loans, reorganizational and impairment charges.  Over the past four years, we have completed nine acquisitions, three of which were transformative for the Company, and sold two of our businesses.  The costs we incurred in completing such acquisitions, including the amortization of intangibles and deferred financing costs, and these divestitures have been excluded from these measures because their size and inconsistent frequency are unrelated to our commercial performance during the period, and which we believe are not indicative of our ongoing operating costs. We exclude the impact of currency translation from these measures because foreign exchange rates are not under management's control and are subject to volatility. Other non-operating charges are excluded as the charges are not indicative of our ongoing operating cost. We believe the presentation of adjusted income from operations, adjusted net income (loss), and adjusted net income per diluted share provide useful information in assessing our underlying business trends and facilitates comparison of our long-term performance over given periods.

The non-GAAP financial measures provided herein may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in the Company's industry, as other companies may calculate such financial results differently. The Company's non-GAAP financial measures are not measurements of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to actual income growth derived from income amounts presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company does not consider these non-GAAP financial measures to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial results.

(a) Non-GAAP Adjusted income from operations represents GAAP income from operations, adjusted to exclude the effects of restructuring and integration expense; non-operational charges related to acquisition and transition expense, intangible amortization costs for fair value step-up in values related to acquisitions, and when applicable, our share of income from joint venture operations. We believe this presentation is commonly used by investors and professional research analysts in the valuation, comparison, rating and investment recommendations of companies in the industrial industry. We use this information for comparative purposes within the industry. Non-GAAP adjusted income from operations is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a measure of liquidity or as an alternative to GAAP income from operations.

(b) This line item reflects the aggregate tax effect of all nontax adjustments reflected in the table above. In addition, the footnotes above indicate the after-tax amount of each individual adjustment item.  NN, Inc. estimates the tax effect of the adjustment items identified in the reconciliation schedule above by applying NN, Inc's. overall estimated effective tax rate to the pretax amount, unless the nature of the item and/or the tax jurisdiction in which the item has been recorded requires application of a specific tax rate or tax treatment.

(c) Non-GAAP adjusted net income (loss) represents GAAP  net income (loss) adjusted to exclude the tax-affected effects of restructuring and integration charges (related to plant closures and other charges incurred to implement our strategic goals that do not necessarily represent a major strategic shift in operations), charges related to acquisition and transition costs,  amortization of intangibles costs for fair value step-up in values related to acquisitions and amortization of deferred financing costs,  foreign exchange gain (loss) on inter-company loans, gains and losses in the fair value of interest rate swaps, estimated interest expense on cash held from divestiture, the impact of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act and income from discontinued operations. We believe this presentation is commonly used by investors and professional research analysts in the valuation, comparison, rating and investment recommendations of companies in the industrial industry. We use this information for comparative purposes within the industry. Non-GAAP adjusted income (loss) from segment operations is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a measure of liquidity or as an alternative to GAAP income (loss) from continuing operations.
