85 Days ago

Strong Profit Growth in U.S. and Mexico Continues to Drive Earnings Momentum

RICHMOND, Va., July 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Brink’s Company (NYSE:BCO), the global leader in total cash management, route-based secure logistics and payment solutions, today announced results for the second quarter of 2019.

(In millions, except for per share amounts) Second-Quarter 2019    
  GAAP   Change   Non-GAAP   Change   Constant
Currency
Change(b)
Revenue $ 914     8%   $ 914     11%   20%
Operating Profit $ 53     (15%)   $ 89     17%   41%
Operating Margin 5.8 %   (150 bps)   9.7 %   50 bps   170 bps
Net Income / Adjusted EBITDA(a) $ 13     fav   $ 134     13%   30%
EPS $ 0.25     fav   $ 0.84     8%   40%
  1. The non-GAAP financial metric, adjusted EBITDA, is presented with its corresponding GAAP metric, net income attributable to Brink's.
  2. Constant currency represents 2019 results at 2018 exchange rates.


Highlights include:

  • Segment revenue:  Reported growth of 11% includes 8% organic growth plus 12% acquisition-related growth, partly offset by 9% negative currency translation (up 20% in constant currency)
  • Total operating profit:
    • GAAP: Profits down 15%, includes 9% organic growth, offset by a negative 9% acquisition-related impact and negative 14% currency translation
    • Non-GAAP: Profits up 17%, includes 28% organic growth plus 14% acquisition-related growth, partly offset by 25% negative currency translation (up 41% in constant currency)
  • Total U.S. revenue up 54%, operating profit more than doubled, margin up 260 bps to 7.7%

Doug Pertz, president and chief executive officer, said:  “Our strong second-quarter non-GAAP results include a 17% increase in operating profit, as continued profit momentum led by the U.S. and Mexico more than offset currency headwinds in Argentina, expenses related to Strategy 2.0 investment, and higher non-cash share-based compensation. In constant currency, revenue and operating profit increased 20% and 41%, respectively.

“As we begin the historically stronger second half of the year, we’re confident that we will achieve our full-year 2019 non-GAAP guidance, which targets operating profit growth of 20%, despite approximately $20 million to $30 million of increased operating expenses to support new strategic and IT initiatives.

“We expect our Strategy 1.0 organic growth initiatives and Strategy 1.5 acquisitions to continue driving profit growth, supporting an expected increase of 100 basis points in our 2019 margin rate to approximately 11%.  In addition, we expect a reduction in the negative impact of the Argentine peso as inflation-driven price increases exceed projected devaluation in that country.

“Looking beyond 2019, we fully expect Strategies 1.0 and 1.5, including future synergies on completed acquisitions, to drive additional strong profit growth throughout our next three-year plan period.  We’ve already begun adding a third layer of high-margin growth with our Strategy 2.0 initiatives, which are focused on developing new tech-enabled services and expanding our presence in the total cash ecosystem.

“We are making tangible progress in improving customer service and developing new service offerings. For example, we recently entered into two significant multi-year agreements - one that will make Brink’s the leading provider for a major U.S. financial institution, and another to manage the entire outsourced network of 11,600 ATMs for the second largest banking group in France. We also completed two acquisitions and an asset purchase during the quarter, including the purchase of a U.S.-based provider of cash management software to a national footprint of more than 11,000 retail locations.  In summary, we are well-positioned to extend the profit momentum we’ve already achieved into 2020 and beyond.”

2019 Non-GAAP Guidance Affirmed
The company’s 2019 non-GAAP guidance includes revenue growth of approximately 9% to $3.75 billion, operating profit growth of approximately 20% to a range between $405 million and $425 million, adjusted EBITDA growth of 17% to a range between $590 million and $610 million, and earnings growth of 21% to a range between $4.10 and $4.30 per share. This guidance assumes currency rates as of December 31, 2018, for all currencies except the Argentine peso, for which the company is using an estimated 2019 full-year average rate of 45 pesos to the U.S. dollar.

Amounts may not add due to rounding

  1. The 2018 Non-GAAP amounts are reconciled to the corresponding GAAP items on pages 10-13.  The 2019 Non-GAAP outlook amounts exclude the year-to-date June 2019 Non-GAAP adjusting items applicable to each category. In addition, we have excluded certain other forecasted Non-GAAP adjusting items for the remainder of 2019, such as intangible asset amortization and U.S. retirement plan costs. We have not forecasted the impact of highly inflationary accounting on our Argentina operations for the remainder of 2019 or other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items for which the timing and amounts are currently under review, such as future restructuring actions. The 2019 Non-GAAP outlook amounts for operating profit, nonoperating expense, provision for income taxes, income from continuing operations, EPS from continuing operations, effective income tax rate and Adjusted EBITDA cannot be reconciled to GAAP without unreasonable effort. We cannot reconcile these amounts to GAAP because we are unable to accurately forecast the impact of highly inflationary accounting on our Argentina operations for the remainder of 2019 or other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items for which the timing and amounts are currently under review, such as future restructuring actions.
  2. The 2019 GAAP outlook excludes any forecasted impact from highly inflationary accounting on our Argentina operations for the remainder of 2019 as well as other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items for which the timing and amounts are currently under review, such as future restructuring actions.
  3. Non-GAAP amounts include the impact of prior year comparable period results for acquired and disposed businesses. GAAP results also include the impact of acquisition-related intangible amortization, restructuring and other charges, and disposition related gains/losses.

Other Items Not Allocated To Segments (Unaudited)                                                     
(In millions)

Brink’s measures its segment results before income and expenses for corporate activities and for certain other items. See below for a summary of the other items not allocated to segments.

Venezuela operations Prior to the deconsolidation of our Venezuelan subsidiaries effective June 30, 2018, we excluded from our segment results all of our Venezuela operating results, due to the Venezuelan government's restrictions that prevented us from repatriating funds.  As a result, the Chief Executive Officer, the Company's Chief Operating Decision maker ("CODM"), assessed segment performance and made resource decisions by segment excluding Venezuela operating results.

Reorganization and Restructuring
2016 Restructuring
In the fourth quarter of 2016, management implemented restructuring actions across our global business operations and our corporate functions.  As a result of these actions, we recognized $18.1 million in related 2016 costs and an additional $17.3 million in 2017 costs.  We recognized additional charges of $6.0 million in the first six months of 2018 under this restructuring.  The actions under this program were substantially completed in 2018.

Other Restructurings
Management periodically implements restructuring actions in targeted sections of our business.  As a result of these actions, we recognized charges of $2.2 million in the first six months of 2018 and $14.1 million in the first six months of 2019, primarily severance costs and charges related to the modification of share-based compensation awards. For the current restructuring actions, we expect to incur additional costs between $2 million and $4 million in future periods.

Due to the unique circumstances around these charges, these management-directed items have not been allocated to segment results and are excluded from non-GAAP results.

Acquisitions and dispositions Certain acquisition and disposition items that are not considered part of the ongoing activities of the business and are special in nature are consistently excluded from non-GAAP results. These items are described below:
2019 Acquisitions and Dispositions

  • We incurred $17.6 million in integration costs related to Dunbar in the first six months of 2019.
  • Amortization expense for acquisition-related intangible assets was $13.5 million in the first six months of 2019.
  • Restructuring costs related to our Dunbar and Rodoban acquisitions were $3.8 million in the first six months of 2019.
  • Transaction costs related to business acquisitions were $1.9 million in the first six months of 2019.
  • Compensation expense related to the retention of key Dunbar employees was $1.6 million in the first six months of 2019.
  • In the first six months of 2019, we recognized $1.3 million in asset impairment charges and severance costs related to the exit from our top-up prepaid mobile phone business in Brazil.

2018 Acquisitions and Dispositions

  • Amortization expense for acquisition-related intangible assets was $17.7 million in 2018.
  • Integration costs in 2018 related to acquisitions in France and the U.S. were $8.1 million.
  • 2018 transaction costs related to business acquisitions were $6.7 million.
  • We incurred 2018 severance charges related to our acquisitions in Argentina, France, U.S. and Brazil of $5.0 million.
  • Compensation expense related to the retention of key Dunbar employees was $4.1 million in 2018.
  • We recognized a net gain in 2018 ($2.6 million, net of statutory employee benefit) on the sale of real estate in Mexico.

Argentina highly inflationary impact Beginning in the third quarter of 2018, we designated Argentina's economy as highly inflationary for accounting purposes. As a result, Argentine peso-denominated monetary assets and liabilities are now remeasured at each balance sheet date to the currency exchange rate then in effect, with currency remeasurement gains and losses recognized in earnings. In addition, nonmonetary assets retain a higher historical basis when the currency is devalued. The higher historical basis results in incremental expense being recognized when the nonmonetary assets are consumed. In the first half of 2019, we recognized $4.4 million in pretax charges related to highly inflationary accounting, including currency remeasurement losses of $3.4 million. These amounts are excluded from non-GAAP results.

Reporting compliance Certain compliance costs (primarily third party expenses) are excluded from the first six months of 2019 non-GAAP results.  These costs relate to the reconstruction of the accounts receivable subledger in the U.S. global services operations ($2.6 million), the implementation and January 1, 2019 adoption of the new lease accounting standard ($1.4 million) and the mitigation of material weaknesses ($0.3 million).

Non-GAAP Results Reconciled to GAAP (Unaudited)
 (In millions, except for percentages and per share amounts)

Non-GAAP results described in this press release are financial measures that are not required by or presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).  The purpose of the Non-GAAP results is to report financial information from the primary operations of our business by excluding the effects of certain income and expenses that do not reflect the ordinary earnings of our operations.  The specific items excluded have not been allocated to segments, are described on page 9 and in more detail in our Form 10-Q, and are reconciled to comparable GAAP measures below.  In addition, we refer to non-GAAP constant currency amounts, which represent current period results and forecasts at prior period exchange rates.

Non-GAAP results adjust the quarterly Non-GAAP tax rates so that the Non-GAAP tax rate in each of the quarters is equal to the full-year estimated Non-GAAP tax rate.  The full-year Non-GAAP tax rate in both years excludes certain pretax and income tax amounts.  Amounts reported for prior periods have been updated in this report to present information consistently for all periods presented.

The 2019 Non-GAAP outlook amounts for provision for income taxes, income (loss) from continuing operations, EPS from continuing operations, effective income tax rate and Adjusted EBITDA cannot be reconciled to GAAP without unreasonable effort. We cannot reconcile these amounts to GAAP because we are unable to accurately forecast the impact of highly inflationary accounting on our Argentina operations or other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items for which the timing and amounts are currently under review, such as future restructuring actions. The impact of highly inflationary accounting and other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items could be significant to our GAAP results.

The Non-GAAP financial measures are intended to provide investors with a supplemental comparison of our operating results and trends for the periods presented. Our management believes these measures are also useful to investors as such measures allow investors to evaluate our performance using the same metrics that our management uses to evaluate past performance and prospects for future performance.  We do not consider these items to be reflective of our core operating performance due to the variability of such items from period-to-period in terms of size, nature and significance.  Additionally, Non-GAAP results are utilized as performance measures in certain management incentive compensation plans.

  1. See “Other Items Not Allocated To Segments” on pages 8-9 for details.  We do not consider these items to be reflective of our core operating performance due to the variability of such items from period-to-period in terms of size, nature and significance.
  2. Non-GAAP income from continuing operations and non-GAAP EPS have been adjusted to reflect an effective income tax rate in each interim period equal to the full-year non-GAAP effective income tax rate. The full-year non-GAAP effective tax rate is estimated at 33.0% for 2019 and was 34.2% for 2018.
  3. Our U.S. retirement plans are frozen and costs related to these plans are excluded from non-GAAP results. Certain non-U.S. operations also have retirement plans. Settlement charges related to these non-U.S. plans are also excluded from non-GAAP results.
  4. Represents the estimated impact of tax legislation enacted into law in the fourth quarter of 2017.  This primarily relates to the U.S. Tax Reform expense from the remeasurement of our net deferred tax assets.
  5. The non-GAAP tax rate excludes the 2018 and 2017 foreign tax benefits that resulted from the transaction that accelerated U.S. tax in 2015.
  6. Effective June 30, 2018, we deconsolidated our investment in Venezuelan subsidiaries and recognized a pretax charge of $126.7 million.
  7. Due to reorganization and restructuring activities, there was a $7.5 million non-GAAP adjustment to share-based compensation in the first half of 2019 and $0.1 million in the fourth quarter and full-year of 2018. There is no difference between GAAP and non-GAAP share-based compensation amounts for the other periods presented.
  8. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as non-GAAP income from continuing operations excluding the impact of non-GAAP interest expense, non-GAAP income tax provision, non-GAAP depreciation and amortization and non-GAAP share-based compensation.
  9. Because we reported a loss from continuing operations on a GAAP basis in the second quarter of 2018 and full year 2018, GAAP EPS was calculated using basic shares. However, as we reported income from continuing operations on a non-GAAP basis in the second quarter of 2018 and full year 2018, non-GAAP EPS was calculated using diluted shares.
  10. Post-deconsolidation funding of ongoing costs related to our Venezuelan operations was $0.9 million in the first six months of 2019 ($0.6 million in the second half of 2018) and was expensed as incurred and reported in interest and other nonoperating income (expense). We do not expect any future funding of the Venezuela business, as long as current U.S. sanctions remain in effect.
  11. Gain on termination of a mining lease obligation related to former coal operations. We have no remaining mining leases.
