JBT Corporation Reports Strong Performance in the Second Quarter of 2015 and Raises Low End of 2015 Earnings Guidance

CHICAGO, July 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Highlights:

  • Revenue of $255 million, up 3 percent from prior-year period, or up 11 percent on a constant currency basis
  • Segment operating profit of $30.8 million, up 8 percent, or up 20 percent on a constant currency basis
  • Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $0.48 vs. $0.38 and adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $0.45 in the prior-year period
  • Inbound orders increased 15 percent year over year, or up 23 percent on a constant currency basis
  • Raised low end of full-year 2015 earnings per share guidance to $1.70, for a revised range of $1.70 - $1.80 compared to prior guidance of $1.65 - $1.80, while absorbing $0.05 per share of acquisition-related dilutive impact in the back half of 2015

JBT Corporation (NYSE: JBT), a leading global technology solutions provider to the food processing and air transportation industries, today reported results for the second quarter of 2015. 

Revenue for the second quarter of 2015 was $254.6 million, an increase of 2.8 percent from the second quarter of 2014.  On a constant currency basis, revenue increased 10.8 percent year over year.  Segment operating profit increased 8.5 percent, or 19.6 percent on a constant currency basis, with margin expansion at both FoodTech and AeroTech.  Corporate expense for the quarter was $7.6 million compared to $8.9 million in the year-ago period. In the second quarter of 2014, corporate expense included management succession and consulting costs of $2.1 million.

Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations was $0.48 versus $0.38 in the prior-year period.  Excluding restructuring charges of $1.0 million and the aforementioned management succession and consulting costs, adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations was $0.45 in the prior-year period.        

The Company announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire the shares of Stork Food & Dairy Systems B.V. on July 17, 2015.  The purchase price will be €47 million, before customary post-closing adjustments.  Stork Food & Dairy Systems is a leading provider of integrated aseptic processing / sterilization and filling systems to the beverage and food processing industries.  The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2015 and be accretive to earnings in 2016.

"JBT delivered another good quarter, with healthy inbound orders and continued progress on our Next Level initiatives," said Tom Giacomini, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "In July, we announced an agreement to acquire Stork Food & Dairy Systems, an addition that significantly enhances JBT's Liquid Foods business." 

Orders and Backlog

In the second quarter of 2015, inbound orders of $241.6 million increased 14.6 percent and backlog grew 6.6 percent from the prior-year period.  On a constant currency basis, inbound orders increased 23.2 percent.

2015 Outlook 

The Company has increased its full-year revenue growth projection to approximately 7 percent.  This outlook reflects organic and acquisition growth of 5 and 7 percent, respectively, and a headwind from foreign currency translation of 5 percent.  Segment operating profit margin for the full year 2015 is expected to improve 50 to 75 basis points from the 10.4 percent achieved in 2014, including transaction costs and purchase price accounting associated with the acquisition of Stork Food & Dairy Systems. 

The Company has raised the low end of its 2015 earnings guidance and projects full year diluted earnings per share in the range of $1.70 - $1.80, compared to previous guidance of $1.65 - $1.80, while absorbing approximately $0.05 per share dilutive impact of the acquisition.

The tables above provide our operating income (loss) as adjusted by depreciation and amortization expense booked during the period to arrive at a segmental and consolidated EBITDA value.  Further, we add back to EBITDA significant expenses that are not indicative of our ongoing operations to calculate an adjusted EBITDA for the two periods reported.  Given the Company's Next Level focus on growth through strategic acquisitions, management considers adjusted EBITDA to be an important non-GAAP measure.  This measure allows us to monitor business performance while excluding the impact of amortization due to the step up in value of intangible assets.  We use adjusted EBITDA internally to make operating decisions and believe this information is helpful to investors because it allows more meaningful period-to-period comparisons of our ongoing operating results.  This information is not intended to nor should it be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
