Oshkosh Corporation Reports Fiscal 2013 First Quarter Results

Friday, January 25, 2013 7:00 AM


Operating Income Margins Improved in All Non-Defense Segments in First Quarter Raises Fiscal 2013 Adjusted EPS Estimate Range to $2.80 to $3.05

Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK) today reported fiscal 2013 first quarter net income of $46.2 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, compared to $38.9 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. Fiscal 2013 first quarter net income, adjusted for items discussed in the following paragraph1, was $55.1 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, compared to $34.6 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. All results are for continuing operations attributable to Oshkosh Corporation, unless stated otherwise.

Adjusted results for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 excluded: pre-tax costs of $16.3 million incurred in connection with a tender offer for the Company’s common stock and threatened proxy contest; pre-tax charges of $0.9 million associated with the curtailment of a pension plan; favorable pre-tax adjustments to restructuring charges of $0.3 million associated with the Company’s plan to exit its ambulance business; and discrete income tax benefits of $1.9 million. Adjusted results for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 excluded: pre-tax costs incurred in connection with a proxy contest of $2.8 million; pre-tax restructuring related charges of $1.0 million, primarily associated with inefficiencies related to the transition of production of ambulances to the Company’s facilities in Florida; and discrete income tax benefits of $6.7 million.

Consolidated net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 were $1.76 billion, a decrease of 6.1 percent compared to the prior year first quarter due to a decline in defense segment sales. Sales to external customers increased in all non-defense segments.

Consolidated operating income in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 was $80.8 million, or 4.6 percent of sales, compared to $75.4 million, or 4.0 percent of sales, in the prior year first quarter. Adjusted consolidated operating income in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 was $97.7 million, or 5.6 percent of sales, compared to $79.2 million, or 4.2 percent of sales, in the prior year first quarter. The increase in operating income in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 was largely attributable to higher sales and improved performance in the Company’s access equipment and fire & emergency segments.

“We started the year strong with results that exceeded our expectations as we continued to execute our MOVE strategy,” said Charlie Szews, chief executive officer of Oshkosh Corporation. “MOVE provides a clear roadmap and targets for delivering shareholder value, and the Oshkosh team is working diligently to deliver against that roadmap.

“Each of our non-defense segments improved its operating income margins compared to the prior year quarter, favorably positioning our company to deliver on our long-range goals. Our strong first quarter performance and other positive developments, give us confidence to raise our full-year outlook for adjusted diluted earnings per share to a range of $2.80 to $3.05.

“I am also pleased to announce that, as part of a previously announced plan to repurchase up to $300 million of our common stock over a 12 to 18 month period, we repurchased approximately 4.25 million shares of Oshkosh Corporation common stock in the quarter at an aggregate cost of $125 million,” added Szews.

Factors affecting first quarter results for the Company’s business segments included:

Access Equipment – Access equipment segment sales to external customers increased 15.1 percent to $581.2 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the prior year first quarter. The increase was principally the result of higher telehandler volumes in North America, the realization of previously announced price increases and improved aftermarket sales. Including intersegment sales, access equipment segment sales decreased 7.4 percent for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared with the prior year quarter when the segment produced $122.6 million of components for MRAP All-Terrain Vehicles (M-ATVs) for the Company’s defense segment.

In the first quarter of fiscal 2013, access equipment segment operating income more than tripled to $48.9 million, or 8.4 percent of sales, compared to prior year first quarter operating income of $13.1 million, or 2.1 percent of sales. The increase in operating income was primarily the result of higher sales volume to external customers and the realization of previously announced price increases.

Defense – Defense segment sales decreased 21.1 percent to $828.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared with the prior year first quarter. The decrease in sales was primarily due to expected lower M-ATV and related aftermarket parts shipments, offset in part by higher Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicles and Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles unit sales.

In the first quarter of fiscal 2013, defense segment operating income decreased 34.1 percent to $60.9 million, or 7.4 percent of sales, compared to prior year first quarter operating income of $92.4 million, or 8.8 percent of sales. The decrease in operating income was largely due to lower sales volumes, offset in part by favorable adjustments on the definitization of domestic contracts and warranty matters.

Fire & Emergency – Fire & emergency segment sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 increased 20.7 percent to $193.3 million compared to the prior year quarter. The increase in sales primarily reflected higher unit volumes at all business units in the segment as the segment benefited from the timing of international deliveries and improved product mix.

The fire & emergency segment reported operating income of $5.8 million, or 3.0 percent of sales, for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to an operating loss of $9.9 million, or 6.2 percent of sales, in the prior year quarter. Operating results for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 were positively impacted by higher sales volume, the elimination of inefficiencies incurred in the prior year quarter related to the transition of ambulance production to the Company’s facilities in Florida and improved price realization.

Commercial – Commercial segment sales increased 3.3 percent to $177.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the prior year quarter. The increase in sales was primarily attributable to higher concrete placement products volume as a result of increased demand in the concrete mixer market and improved aftermarket parts & service sales, offset in part by lower chassis volume.

In the first quarter of fiscal 2013, commercial segment operating income increased 16.2 percent to $8.0 million, or 4.5 percent of sales, compared to $6.9 million, or 4.0 percent of sales, in the prior year quarter. The increase in operating income was primarily a result of higher sales volume.

Corporate – Corporate operating expenses increased $15.6 million to $42.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the prior year quarter. Results for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 included pre-tax costs of $16.3 million incurred in connection with a tender offer for the Company’s common stock and threatened proxy contest. Results for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 included pre-tax costs of $2.8 million incurred in connection with a proxy contest. Excluding tender offer and proxy contest costs, adjusted corporate operating expenses increased $2.1 million to $26.4 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the prior year quarter. The increase in adjusted corporate expenses in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2012 was related to higher share-based compensation costs.

Interest Expense Net of Interest Income – Interest expense net of interest income decreased $5.8 million to $14.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the prior year quarter. The decrease was largely due to the expiration of the Company’s interest rate swap in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. First quarter fiscal 2012 interest expense included $2.2 million of expense related to the Company’s interest rate swap. In addition, in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company recognized $2.3 million of interest income upon receipt of payment on a note receivable.

Provision for Income Taxes – The Company recorded income tax expense of $21.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, or 31.5 percent of pre-tax income, compared to 22.3 percent of pre-tax income in the prior year quarter. Excluding discrete items, the Company’s effective tax rate was 34.3 percent in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to 35.7 percent in the prior year quarter.

Share Repurchases – During the first quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company repurchased 4,250,072 shares of its common stock at an aggregate cost of $125.1 million. The Company is targeting to spend an additional $175 million to repurchase shares over the next 9 to 15 months.

Fiscal 2013 Expectations

As a result of its strong first fiscal quarter results, its outlook for the remainder of the year, the impact of share repurchases to date and benefits associated with the reinstatement of the U.S. research and development tax credit, the Company is increasing its outlook range for full-year fiscal 2013 adjusted earnings from continuing operations to $2.80 - $3.05 per share. This estimate excludes $0.09 per share incurred in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 as well as any future potential costs related to the tender offer for the Company’s common stock and threatened proxy contest, restructuring costs and discrete tax items.

Conference Call

The Company will comment on its fiscal 2013 first quarter earnings and its full-year fiscal 2013 outlook during a conference call at 9:00 a.m. EST this morning. Slides for the call will be available on the Company’s website beginning at 7:00 a.m. EST this morning. The call will be webcast simultaneously over the Internet. To access the webcast, listeners can go to www.oshkoshcorporation.com at least 15 minutes prior to the event and follow instructions for listening to the webcast. An audio replay of the call and related question and answer session will be available for 12 months at this website.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in the United States of America. The Company is presenting various operating results, such as operating income, income from continuing operations and earnings per share from continuing operations, both on a reported basis and on a basis excluding items that affect comparability of operating results. When the Company uses operating results such as operating income, income from continuing operations and earnings per share from continuing operations, excluding items, they are considered non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes excluding the impact of these items is useful to investors to allow a more accurate comparison of the Company’s operating performance to prior year results. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the Company’s results prepared in accordance with GAAP. The table below presents a reconciliation of the Company’s presented non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures (in millions, except per share amounts):
