  • Records Automation goodwill impairment and Announces Industrial restructuring actions

BRISTOL, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Barnes Group Inc. (NYSE: B), a global provider of highly engineered products, differentiated industrial technologies, and innovative solutions, today reported financial results for the second quarter of 2022.

“Our second quarter performance demonstrates continued strength in the aerospace recovery, driven by robust performance in our Aerospace Aftermarket business and steady recovery in our OEM business,” said Thomas J. Hook, President and Chief Executive Officer of Barnes. “In Industrial, persistent economic headwinds impeded expected performance improvements. Accordingly, we have commenced a systematic multi-phased initiative to significantly reduce costs and integrate our operations, decreasing complexity and focusing on improved business performance. We will leverage the high-quality, technology-based product lines within our Industrial portfolio, and work diligently to drive the value these businesses are capable of,” added Hook.

Second Quarter 2022 Highlights

Second quarter 2022 net sales of $321 million were flat compared to the prior year period, with organic sales (1) increasing 5%. Foreign exchange had a negative impact of 5%. Operating loss was $28.2 million versus operating income of $38.5 million a year ago, impacted by a goodwill impairment charge of approximately $68 million in the Industrial Segment. Operating margin was -8.8%. Excluding the goodwill impairment charge and $0.1 million of restructuring charges in the current year quarter, adjusted operating income was $40.1 million, up 2%, and adjusted operating margin was 12.5%, up 30 bps from a year ago.

Interest expense for the second quarter of 2022 was $3.3 million, a decrease of $1.1 million from the prior year due to the benefits of a lower average interest rate and lower average borrowings. Other income was $0.4 million versus last year’s other expense of $1.3 million, primarily driven by foreign exchange gains in the current year versus losses in the prior year.

The Company’s effective tax rate in the second quarter was -27.1%. Excluding the goodwill impairment, the adjusted effective tax rate for the second quarter was 22.8% compared with 25.3% a year ago and 21.9% for the full year 2021. The increase in the second quarter 2022 adjusted effective tax rate from the full year 2021 rate was largely due to last year’s benefits related to a realignment of Italian tax basis goodwill & intangibles and foreign audit adjustments. These items were partially offset by a change in the mix of earnings between high and low tax jurisdictions.

Net loss for the second quarter was $39.6 million, or -$0.78 per share, compared to net income of $24.5 million, or $0.48 per share, a year ago. On an adjusted basis, net income per share of $0.56 was up 24% from $0.45 a year ago. Adjusted net income per share in the second quarter of 2022 excludes a $1.34 per share goodwill impairment, while the prior year period excludes $0.01 of restructuring charges and a net foreign tax benefit of $0.04.

Year-to-date cash provided by operating activities was $8.5 million versus $85.7 million in the prior year primarily due to an increase in working capital and incentive compensation paid in the current year. Free cash flow was -$5.0 million compared to $68.2 million last year. Capital expenditures were $13.5 million, down from $17.6 million a year ago.

A table reconciling non-GAAP to GAAP financial measures, including forward looking outlook information, is presented at the end of this press release.

Segment Performance

Industrial
Second quarter sales were $212 million, down 10% from $235 million in the prior year period. Organic sales decreased 3% while unfavorable foreign exchange lowered sales by 6%. Operating loss was $48.7 million versus operating profit of $27.3 million in the prior year period. In the second quarter, the Company performed its assessment of goodwill. In the Automation reporting unit, weak performance and a worsening economic outlook leading to a downward revision of its sales and cash flow forecasts resulted in a non-cash impairment of approximately $68 million. Automation represents the October 2018 acquisition of Gimatic. Excluding the goodwill impairment and restructuring charges of $0.1 million in current year and $0.2 million in the prior year, adjusted operating profit of $19.5 million was down 29% and adjusted operating margin of 9.2% was down 250 bps. Adjusted operating profit was impacted by lower sales volume, lower productivity, in part a result of COVID-19 related absenteeism, and the net impact of inflation. These factors were partially offset by lower incentive compensation.

Aerospace
Second quarter sales were $109 million, up 26% from $86 million last year, benefitting from continued recovery in aerospace end markets. Aerospace original equipment manufacturing (“OEM”) sales increased 14%, while aftermarket sales increased 55% compared to the prior year period.

Operating profit was $20.6 million in the second quarter, up 82% from $11.3 million in the prior year period. Excluding restructuring charges of $0.1 million in the current year and $0.4 million in the prior year, adjusted operating profit of $20.6 million was up 76% from a year ago. The increase in adjusted operating profit was driven by the contribution of higher sales volumes, in particular strong aftermarket sales, offset in part by unfavorable productivity due to labor availability. Adjusted operating margin was 18.9%, up 540 bps from 13.5% last year.

Aerospace OEM backlog ended the second quarter at $753 million, up 5% sequentially from March 2022. The Company expects to convert approximately 45% of this backlog to revenue over the next 12 months.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

Barnes’ balance sheet and liquidity profile remain well-positioned. The Company has liquidity of $72 million in cash and approximately $521 million available under the revolving credit facility, subject to covenants which would have allowed $230 million under our current credit agreements. With respect to the balance sheet, our “Debt to EBITDA” ratio, as defined in our credit agreements, was approximately 2.3 times at quarter end.

Industrial Restructuring

For the Company’s Industrial Segment, operational performance and the macroeconomic environment have deteriorated from our prior view. The first half’s headwinds are now expected to persist deeper into the year and combine with softening European demand due to impacts of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. As a result, our performance outlook for the second half has been meaningfully reduced. Accordingly, the Company is embarking on a restructuring program to significantly reduce costs and integrate our operations to improve customer engagement and increase efficiency to drive performance. The Company forecasts a restructuring charge of approximately $24 million, with $17 million of the charge in 2022. Annualized cost savings are forecasted to be $14 million. This initial restructuring will be broad-based, touching much of our industrial portfolio.

Updated 2022 Outlook

Barnes now expects 2022 organic sales growth of 5% to 6% and negative foreign exchange of approximately 3%. Adjusted operating margin is now forecasted to be in the range of 11% to 12%, down from our prior view reflecting weaker Industrial performance and macroeconomic headwinds, offset in part by a more favorable view in our Aerospace Segment. Adjusted earnings are expected to be in the range of $1.90 to $2.05 per share, down 2% to up 6% from 2021’s adjusted earnings of $1.94 per share. 2022 adjusted earnings per share are anticipated to exclude a $0.27 impact related to restructuring activities and a $1.33 impact for the goodwill impairment charge. The Company forecasts capital expenditures of between $40 and $45 million and cash conversion of approximately 100% of net income. The adjusted effective tax rate for 2022 is expected to be between 24% and 25%.

Notes:

(1) The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. The Company believes that the free cash flow metric is useful to investors and management as a measure of cash generated by business operations that can be used to invest in future growth, pay dividends, repurchase stock and reduce debt. This metric can also be used to evaluate the Company's ability to generate cash flow from business operations and the impact that this cash flow has on the Company's liquidity.

Notes:
(1) The Company has excluded the following from its "as adjusted" financial measurements for 2022: 1) charges related to restructuring actions at certain businesses and 2) the goodwill impairment charge recorded in the second quarter of 2022 related to the Automation reporting unit. The Company has excluded the following from its "as adjusted" financial measurements for 2021: 1) the impact of certain foreign tax matters including a benefit related to the Italy tax realignment, partially offset by a charge related to the UK tax rate and 2) charges related to restructuring actions at certain businesses. The tax effects of the restructuring actions were calculated based on the respective tax jurisdictions and ranged from approximately 15% to approximately 30%. The goodwill impairment charge did not have a tax effect as it is not deductible for book purposes. Management believes that these adjustments provide the Company and its investors with an indication of our baseline performance excluding items that are not considered to be reflective of our ongoing results. Management does not intend results excluding the adjustments to represent results as defined by GAAP, and the reader should not consider it as an alternative measurement calculated in accordance with GAAP, or as an indicator of the Company's performance. Accordingly, the measurements have limitations depending on their use.
