JBT Corporation Reports Second Quarter 2017 Earnings

CHICAGO, July 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Second-Quarter 2017 Highlights:

  • Revenue of $386 million, up 17 percent from prior year period
  • Inbound orders of $418 million, ahead 36 percent  
  • Acquires PLF International and Aircraft Maintenance Support Services in July 2017
  • Maintaining full-year 2017 earnings per share guidance of $2.95 - $3.10 while absorbing $0.06 dilution from the two acquisitions

JBT Corporation (NYSE: JBT), a leading global technology solutions provider to high-value segments of the food & beverage industry, today reported results for the second quarter of 2017.

Revenue increased 17 percent from the same period in 2016, comprised of 4 percent organic growth and 13 percent growth from acquisitions. Segment operating profit declined 1 percent year over year. Segment operating profit margin declined 205 basis points to 10.9 percent in the second quarter of 2017, due to a 120 basis point impact from acquisitions, as well as product mix at FoodTech and AeroTech.

Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations was $0.57 for the second quarter of 2017. Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations was $0.63, or $0.67 on an adjusted basis, in the second quarter of 2016.

"JBT delivered solid performance in the second quarter of 2017, with strong new equipment and aftermarket sales growth," said Tom Giacomini, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We were also pleased with orders, with notable year-over-year gains at FoodTech as well as exceptionally strong levels at AeroTech."

Orders and Backlog

For the second quarter of 2017, inbound orders of $418 million increased 36 percent from the prior year, reflecting a gain of 41 percent at FoodTech and a 26 percent increase at AeroTech. Backlog improved 16 percent from the year-ago period.

Acquisitions

Earlier today, JBT announced the acquisition of PLF International Limited, a provider of powder filling systems for the global food and beverage markets. 

"JBT and PLF's sales collaborations during the past 10 years and complementary products make this combination a natural fit," said Giacomini. "The addition of PLF expands our presence in the high-value part of the packaging line, serving attractive growth markets."

On July 3, 2017, JBT acquired Aircraft Maintenance Support Services, Ltd. (AMSS), a manufacturer of military aviation equipment. "The combination will enhance our military product offerings and provide expanded access to foreign militaries," added Giacomini.

Together, PLF and AMSS are expected to generate revenue of approximately $20 million in 2017, or $45 million on an annualized basis, with earnings dilution of approximately $0.06 per share in 2017, followed by accretion of $0.07 - $0.09 per share in 2018 and $0.10 - $0.12 per share in 2019.  

2017 Outlook 

"With a strong outlook for the second half of 2017, we are raising our full-year revenue guidance and maintaining the earnings per share guidance range of $2.95 - $3.10 for 2017, while absorbing $0.06 dilution from PLF and AMSS," said Brian Deck, JBT's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

JBT is raising its revenue growth guidance to 19 to 20 percent for the year, composed of 6 to 7 percent organic growth and approximately 13 percent from acquisitions. Previously, the Company guided to a 16 percent revenue growth rate, with 4 to 6 percent organic growth and 11 percent from acquisitions. At the same time, the Company expects segment margins to be flat to up 25 basis points, down from previous guidance of a 25 to 50 basis point expansion, primarily due to the two July acquisitions.

The Company expects third quarter 2017 earnings of $0.76 - $0.79 per share as it absorbs most of the dilution from the PLF and AMSS acquisitions in the quarter.

The above table provides net income as adjusted by income taxes, net interest expense and depreciation and amortization expense recorded during the period to arrive at EBITDA. Further, we add back to EBITDA significant expenses that are not indicative of our ongoing operations to calculate an Adjusted EBITDA for the periods reported. Given the Company's focus on growth through strategic acquisitions, management considers Adjusted EBITDA to be an important non-GAAP financial 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, and the depreciation of fixed 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.
