Published on

TriMas Corporation (NASDAQ:TRS) today announced financial results for the year and quarter ended December 31, 2014. TriMas reported record fourth quarter net sales from continuing operations of $350.6 million, an increase of 9.5% compared to fourth quarter 2013. The Company reported fourth quarter 2014 income from continuing operations attributable to TriMas Corporation of $2.7 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, as compared to $6.0 million, or $0.13 per diluted share during fourth quarter 2013. Excluding Special Items(1), fourth quarter 2014 diluted earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations would have been $0.37, an increase of 27.6% as compared to $0.29 in fourth quarter 2013, while absorbing ($0.01) of net EPS as a result of the Allfast Fastening Systems (Allfast) acquisition and related financing during fourth quarter 2014. The Allfast acquisition and related financing impact was not included in the Company’s 2014 EPS guidance previously provided.

For the year, the Company reported record net sales from continuing operations of $1.5 billion, an increase of 8.0% compared to 2013. The Company reported full year income from continuing operations attributable to TriMas Corporation of $65.9 million, or $1.46 per diluted share, compared to income from continuing operations of $74.4 million, or $1.80 per diluted share, in 2013. Excluding Special Items(1), full year 2014 income from continuing operations would have been $87.1 million, or $1.92 per diluted share, as compared to $84.7 million, or $2.05 per diluted share, in 2013. Full year 2014 EPS was impacted by 9.4% higher weighted average shares outstanding as compared to 2013, as well as $2.2 million of diligence costs related to the acquisition of Allfast.

TriMas Full Year 2014 Highlights

  • Achieved record net sales of approximately $1.5 billion, an increase of 8.0%, due to the results from acquisitions and the successful execution of growth initiatives. Net sales increased across all six business segments.
  • Generated $89.0 million in Free Cash Flow, which represents more than 100% of net income and an increase of 84.9% as compared to 2013.
  • Continued to refine the business portfolio including the completion of acquisitions in Packaging and Aerospace for approximately $382.9 million, net of cash acquired, and exiting the Company’s defense business. The Allfast acquisition, completed in October 2014, is meeting the Company’s expectations.
  • Achieved 7.8% net sales growth in the Packaging segment as compared to 2013, offsetting the third quarter 2013 divestiture of its rings and levers business, while achieving a 23.9% operating profit margin(1).
  • Increased Engineered Components net sales by 19.4% as compared to 2013, and grew operating profit margin by 490 basis points as a result of actions taken to improve the businesses.
  • Launched margin enhancement programs designed to optimize manufacturing footprint, exit lower margin products and geographies, and achieve synergies from previous acquisitions.
  • Announced plan to separate into two public companies via a tax-free spin-off of Cequent businesses; targeted completion during mid-2015.

“We ended 2014 with record sales of $1.5 billion, an increase of 8.0% as compared to 2013, and EPS of $1.92(1), which is within the guidance range previously provided,” said David Wathen, TriMas President and Chief Executive Officer. “During the year, we intensified our efforts to improve our future margins across all of our businesses through a series of initiatives. We remain focused on reshaping the businesses to better serve our customers, optimizing our flexible global manufacturing footprint, implementing productivity and lean programs to reduce lead times, complexity and costs, and leveraging our recent acquisitions.”

Wathen continued, “Our actions taken in 2014 mark the beginning of a transformation for TriMas, as we continue our progress toward becoming a leading provider of high-margin, highly-engineered product solutions. We are committed to enhancing shareholder value through management of our business portfolio and organizational focus. During 2014, we invested in our higher-margin Packaging and Aerospace businesses with acquisitions which will drive further growth and margin expansion. We also exited our defense business, as well as other less profitable products and geographies, and will continue to evaluate additional opportunities to do so on an on-going basis. Most notably, we announced the decision to spin-off our Cequent businesses, which we believe will provide both companies greater flexibility to focus on their distinct growth and margin improvement strategies, enable them to further improve competitiveness and create significant value for shareholders, customers and employees.”

“We have taken actions to improve our operating performance which will require time and resources to execute – the benefits which will begin to be realized as we progress through 2015. We believe we are starting the year positioned to drive shareholder value through revenue and EPS growth, margin improvement and cash flow generation. Despite the dramatic shift in currency rates and the impact of the decline in oil prices, we are estimating 2015 top-line growth of 3% to 5% and full-year 2015 diluted EPS to range between $2.10 and $2.20 per share, with the midpoint representing EPS growth of approximately 12% as compared to 2014. We continue to be confident in our ability to grow the top-line faster than the economy, improve our margins and generate strong cash flow – to deliver increased return on capital,” Wathen concluded.

Full Year 2014 Financial Results – From Continuing Operations

  • TriMas reported 2014 record net sales of $1.5 billion, an increase of 8.0% as compared to $1.4 billion in 2013. During 2014, net sales increased in all six segments, primarily as a result of sales from acquisitions, as well as geographic expansion, new product introductions and strength in certain end markets, while offsetting the $10.2 million reduction of sales associated with the disposition of the Italian rings and levers Packaging business during the third quarter of 2013. The sales increases were partially offset by approximately $6.3 million of unfavorable currency exchange, primarily in Cequent APEA.
  • The Company reported 2014 operating profit of $124.6 million, compared to operating profit of $119.6 million for 2013. Excluding the impact of Special Items(1), primarily related to severance and business restructuring costs, 2014 operating profit would have been $146.3 million in 2014, as compared to $137.3 million in 2013. 2014 operating profit margin (excluding Special Items(1)) was 9.8%, relatively flat as compared to 2013.
  • Excluding noncontrolling interests related to Arminak, 2014 income was $65.9 million, or $1.46 per diluted share, compared to income of $74.4 million, or $1.80 per diluted share, during 2013. Excluding the impact of Special Items(1), 2014 income would have been $87.1 million, as compared to $84.7 million in 2013. Excluding Special Items(1), 2014 diluted EPS would have been $1.92, which was impacted by 9.4% higher weighted average shares outstanding and $2.2 million of diligence costs related to Allfast in 2014.
  • The Company exceeded its previously increased Free Cash Flow (defined as Cash Flow from Operating Activities less Capital Expenditures) outlook of $70 to $80 million for 2014 by generating $89.0 million, as compared to $48.1 million in 2013, while continuing to invest in capital expenditures, working capital, and future growth and productivity programs. Free Cash Flow was more than 100% of net income.
  • During 2014, the Company invested $34.5 million in capital expenditures (included in Free Cash Flow above) primarily in support of future growth and productivity opportunities and $382.9 million in acquisitions, net of cash acquired.

Fourth Quarter 2014 Financial Results – From Continuing Operations

  • TriMas reported record fourth quarter net sales of $350.6 million, an increase of 9.5% as compared to $320.2 million in fourth quarter 2013, as a result of sales from acquisitions, as well as geographic expansion, new product introductions and strength in certain end markets. These sales increases were partially offset by approximately $4.0 million of unfavorable currency exchange, most notably in Cequent APEA.
  • The Company reported operating profit of $15.6 million in fourth quarter 2014, as compared to $10.5 million during fourth quarter 2013. Excluding Special Items(1) primarily related to severance and business restructuring costs to improve long-term profitability, fourth quarter 2014 operating profit would have been $29.1 million, an increase of 24.2% as compared to $23.5 million during fourth quarter 2013. Fourth quarter 2014 operating profit margin improved due to the actions taken to drive continued productivity, cost reduction and automation initiatives, as well as operating leverage gained on the higher sales levels in certain businesses, but continues to be impacted by less favorable product sales mix, manufacturing inefficiencies and costs related to recent acquisitions including purchase accounting related adjustments.
  • Excluding noncontrolling interests related to Arminak, the Company reported fourth quarter 2014 income of $2.7 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, as compared to $6.0 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, during fourth quarter 2013. Excluding Special Items(1) primarily related to severance and business restructuring costs, and debt financing and extinguishment costs, fourth quarter 2014 income would have been $16.9 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, an increase of 27.6% as compared to $0.29 in fourth quarter 2013.
  • The Company generated Free Cash Flow (defined as Cash Flow from Operating Activities less Capital Expenditures) of $51.8 million for fourth quarter 2014, as compared to $42.0 million in fourth quarter 2013.

Discontinued Operations

During the third quarter of 2014, the Company ceased operations of its NI Industries business. NI Industries manufactured cartridge cases for the defense industry and was party to a U.S. Government facility maintenance contract. The Company received approximately $6.7 million for the sale of certain intellectual property and related inventory and tooling.

Financial Position

TriMas reported total indebtedness of $639.3 million as of December 31, 2014, as compared to $305.7 million as of December 31, 2013. In October 2014, the Company amended its Credit Agreement and borrowed $275 million on an incremental Term Loan A facility and used cash and additional borrowings on its revolving credit facility to fund the approximate $360 million purchase price of Allfast. TriMas ended 2014 with $216.4 million of cash and aggregate availability under its revolving credit and accounts receivable facilities.

Fourth Quarter Business Segment Results – From Continuing Operations(2)

Packaging

Net sales for fourth quarter increased 3.2% as compared to the year ago period, resulting from additional industrial closure and specialty dispensing system sales. Additional specialty dispensing sales related to the acquisition of Lion Holdings and strong U.S. industrial closure demand were partially offset by the reduction in sales related to the negative impact of the port delays on the West Coast of the United States. Operating profit and the related margin percentage for the quarter increased due to higher sales levels and a reduction of a contingent liability related to Arminak. The Company continues to develop specialty dispensing and closure applications for growing end markets, including personal care, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, nutrition and food/beverage, and expand into complementary products.

Energy

Fourth quarter net sales increased 16.2% as compared to the year ago period, primarily due to higher sales of standard gaskets and bolts resulting from increased order rates from North American refining and petrochemical customers. Fourth quarter operating profit and the related margin percentage improved due to increased sales levels and actions taken to improve the business, although still negatively impacted from a less favorable product sales mix. The Company has launched several initiatives to improve its profitability and continues to restructure its Brazilian business to better reflect the current market demand. In January 2015, the Company also announced the move of a portion of the gasket and fastener operations from its Houston facility to a new facility in Mexico in order to improve the global operating model and enhance the cost structure of the longer lead-time products. This transition is expected to be completed over the next 12 to 18 months. The Company also has additional projects underway to improve its operational footprint and increase the sales of its higher margin, specialty products.

Aerospace

Net sales for fourth quarter increased 28.5% as compared to the year ago period, primarily due to the results of Allfast, which was acquired in October 2014. Fourth quarter 2014 operating profit and the related margin percentage declined as the increase in operating profit earned on the sales from Allfast was more than offset by lower margins at Martinic Engineering, improved but continuing manufacturing inefficiencies related to smaller customer order quantities and less predictable order patterns associated with large distribution customers, a less favorable product sales mix, and costs related to Allfast including purchase accounting adjustments. Operating profit was also impacted by a charge for the resolution of a customer claim. With recent additions to the management team of this business, the Company is focused on improving margins, developing and marketing highly-engineered products for aerospace applications and leveraging the recent acquisitions.

Engineered Components

Net sales for fourth quarter increased 35.5% as compared to the year ago period, primarily due to incremental sales resulting from the small cylinder asset acquisition in November 2013, increased sales into newer cylinder end markets and improved sales in gas compression products. Fourth quarter 2014 operating profit and the related margin percentage increased compared to the prior year period primarily due to the sales increases and improved leverage of the cost structures in these businesses. The Company is responding to the dramatic drop in oil prices and the impact on the Arrow Engine business, while continuing to drive new product sales and expand its international sales efforts.

Cequent APEA

Net sales for fourth quarter 2014 decreased 6.8% as compared to the year ago period, primarily due to lower sales in Australia and Thailand related to general economic conditions resulting in reduced consumer and business confidence, and the unfavorable impact of currency exchange. Fourth quarter operating profit and the related margin percentage decreased, primarily due to lower sales, a less favorable product and regional sales mix and higher selling, general and administrative expenses. The Company continues to identify cost reduction opportunities and leverage Cequent’s strong brand positions to capitalize on growth opportunities in new markets.

Cequent Americas

Net sales for fourth quarter increased 1.0% as compared to the year ago period, resulting primarily from increased sales within the retail and aftermarket channels, partially offset by decreases in the auto original equipment and industrial channels. Fourth quarter operating profit and the related margin percentage declined compared to fourth quarter 2013, due to higher shipping and material costs related to steel, partially offset by lower sourcing costs out of Asia. The Company continues to identify cost reduction opportunities and leverage Cequent’s strong brand positions and new products for increased market share in the United States and faster growing markets.

2015 Outlook

The Company is estimating that 2015 sales will increase 3% to 5% as compared to 2014. The Company expects full-year 2015 diluted earnings per share to be between $2.10 and $2.20 per share, excluding any future events that may be considered Special Items. In addition, the Company expects 2015 Free Cash Flow, defined as Cash Flow from Operating Activities less Capital Expenditures, to be between $60 million and $70 million.

Wathen commented, “While the macro-economic environment is increasingly uncertain, we are taking actions to mitigate the impact of these items and to improve our business performance. We have created a solid foundation for the future as we focus on our strategic priorities of generating more profitable growth, enhancing profit margins, optimizing capital and resource allocation, and striving to be a great place for our employees to work – all of which should enhance long-term shareholder value.”

The above guidance is reflective of a full year of TriMas Corporation as it operates today; if and when the proposed spin transaction of Cequent is completed, management will update guidance accordingly.
