The Manitowoc Company Reports First-Quarter 2022 Results

05/03/2022

First-quarter 2022 Highlights

  • Net Sales of $459.0 million, up 29.6% year-over-year
  • Diluted net income per share of $0.09, $0.03 on an adjusted basis(1)
  • Adjusted EBITDA (1) of $31.2 million, up $10.1 million year-over-year

The Manitowoc Company, Inc. (NYSE: MTW), (the “Company” or “Manitowoc”) a leading global manufacturer of cranes and lifting solutions, today reported first-quarter net income of $3.1 million, or $0.09 per diluted share. On an adjusted basis, first-quarter net income(1) was $1.0 million, or $0.03 per diluted share.

Net sales in the first-quarter increased 29.6% year-over-year to $459.0 million and were unfavorably impacted by $15.8 million from changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Adjusted EBITDA(1) was $31.2 million, an increase of $10.1 million from the prior year. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA percentage improved by approximately 80 basis-points year-over-year to 6.8%.

First-quarter orders of $481.5 million increased $7.9 million, or 1.7% over the prior year. Orders were unfavorably impacted by $14.6 million from changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Backlog as of March 31, 2022 totaled $1,033.4 million, an increase of 56.0% year-over-year, and an increase of 2.2% from December 31, 2021.

"I am pleased with our overall performance during the quarter. While our revenue was lower than planned mainly due to continuing supply chain and logistics challenges, the team was able to generate $31 million of Adjusted EBITDA, exceeding our expectations,” commented President and Chief Executive Officer, Aaron Ravenscroft. “The Ukrainian crisis combined with the severe COVID measures taken in China have further exacerbated the global macroeconomic environment. The recent acceleration of inflation, particularly in Europe, combined with further deterioration in our supply chain will place added pressure on crane demand and our margins throughout the remainder of the year. As a result, we believe that our full-year results will be on the lower-end of the Adjusted EBITDA guidance previously communicated.”

“While we see clear signs of an economic slowdown in the near-term, the backdrop for a crane renaissance remains unchanged – crane fleets continue to age beyond historic levels, and the U.S. infrastructure bill has been approved. Manitowoc will continue to invest in our four breakthrough initiatives and we remain committed to our CRANES+50 strategy, which is to grow our non-new machine sales by 50% in the next five years,” concluded Ravenscroft.

Footnote

(1) Adjusted net income (loss), adjusted diluted net income (loss) per share, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted operating income and free cash flows are financial measures that are not in accordance with GAAP. For a reconciliation to the comparable GAAP numbers please see schedule of “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” at the end of this press release. Manitowoc believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide important supplemental information to both management and investors regarding financial and business trends used in assessing its results of operations. Manitowoc believes excluding specified items provides a more meaningful comparison to the corresponding reporting periods and internal budgets and forecasts, assists investors in performing analysis that is consistent with financial models developed by investors and research analysts, provides management with a more relevant measure of operating performance and is more useful in assessing management performance.
