Oshkosh Corporation Reports Fiscal 2015 Second Quarter Results

Reaffirms Fiscal 2015 Adjusted1 EPS Estimate Range of $4.00 to $4.25

Delivers Higher Sales and Operating Income in All non-Defense Segments

Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend of $0.17 per share

OSHKOSH, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 28, 2015-- Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK) today reported fiscal 2015 second quarter net income of $54.6 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, compared to $71.5 million, or $0.83 per diluted share, in the second quarter of fiscal 2014. Results for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 included after-tax costs of $9.3 million incurred in connection with the refinancing of the Company’s senior notes due 2020. Excluding this item, fiscal 2015 second quarter adjusted1 net income was $63.9 million, or $0.81 per diluted share. Fiscal 2014 second quarter adjusted1 net income was $69.0 million, or $0.80 per diluted share, excluding after-tax costs of a pension curtailment of $2.6 million related to announced workforce reductions in the Company’s defense segment, after-tax costs of $7.0 million incurred in connection with the refinancing of the Company’s credit agreement and senior notes due 2017, and a $12.1 million tax benefit related to the reduction of a net operating loss valuation reserve. Fiscal 2015 second quarter results were negatively impacted compared to the prior year quarter by $0.05 per share from currencies, particularly the euro and Australian dollar, which declined against the U.S. dollar. Comparisons in this press release are to the corresponding period of the prior year, unless otherwise noted.

Consolidated net sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2015 were $1.55 billion, a decrease of 7.4 percent. Significantly lower defense segment sales, as expected, were offset in part by improved demand in the Company’s non-defense segments. On a constant currency basis, sales decreased 5.7 percent compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2014.

Consolidated operating income in the second quarter of fiscal 2015 was $109.7 million, or 7.1 percent of sales, compared to $119.4 million, or 7.1 percent of sales, in the prior year second quarter. Excluding the curtailment charge described above, adjusted1 consolidated operating income in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was $123.5 million, or 7.4 percent of sales. Higher operating income in each of the Company’s non-defense segments during the second quarter of fiscal 2015 was not sufficient to offset the impact of lower sales in the Company’s defense segment.

“Our team performed well in the quarter as we managed through a previously announced break in production under the Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicle (FHTV) program in our defense segment, foreign currency headwinds and severe weather conditions in the Northeast U.S. to deliver adjusted earnings per share in line with our expectations and slightly above the prior year quarter adjusted earnings per share,” said Charles L. Szews, Oshkosh Corporation chief executive officer. “Sales and operating income were higher in each of our non-defense segments, reflecting the continued recovery of those markets and the execution of our MOVE strategy. The improved operating results in our non-defense segments helped to mitigate much of the impact of significantly lower defense segment sales and earnings.

“We expect to deliver strong second half results as we enter the seasonally busy construction season, resume FHTV sales in the fourth quarter, and continue to execute our MOVE strategy,” added Szews. “Our solid first half performance and positive outlook for the second half of the fiscal year give us confidence in sustaining our fiscal 2015 full year adjusted1 earnings per share estimate range of $4.00 - $4.25.”

Factors affecting second quarter results for the Company’s business segments included:

Access Equipment – Access equipment segment sales increased 13.4 percent to $981.8 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2015. The improvement was principally the result of increased sales in all regions, except Latin America, on a constant currency basis. The effect of the strengthening U.S. dollar negatively impacted access equipment segment sales by $26.5 million. On a constant currency basis, sales increased 16.4 percent.

Access equipment segment operating income increased 17.4 percent to $136.9 million, or 13.9 percent of sales, for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 compared to $116.6 million, or 13.5 percent of sales, in the second quarter of fiscal 2014. The increase in operating income was primarily the result of higher sales volume and a favorable vendor recovery settlement, offset in part by an adverse product mix and unfavorable currency impacts of $3.3 million.

Defense – Defense segment sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 decreased 67.2 percent to $158.7 million. The decrease in sales was primarily due to expected lower sales to the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) stemming from the break in production under the FHTV program and lower Family of Medium Tactical Vehicle requirements, as well as the absence of international sales of MRAP All-Terrain Vehicles.

The defense segment recorded an operating loss of $12.0 million, or 7.5 percent of sales, for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 compared to operating income of $34.5 million, or 7.1 percent of sales, in the second quarter of fiscal 2014. The decrease in operating income was largely due to the lower sales volume.

Fire & Emergency – Fire & emergency segment sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 increased 30.0 percent to $202.9 million. The increase in sales primarily reflected higher domestic and international shipments of fire apparatus and aircraft rescue and firefighting vehicles and a shift to higher content units. Production delays negatively impacted sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2014.

Fire & emergency segment operating income increased 750.1 percent to $9.0 million, or 4.4 percent of sales, for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 compared to $1.0 million, or 0.7 percent of sales, in the second quarter of fiscal 2014. Higher sales volume was the largest contributor to the increase in operating income.

Commercial – Commercial segment sales increased 21.2 percent to $220.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2015. The increase in sales was primarily attributable to higher concrete mixer and refuse collection vehicle unit volume and the sale of higher content units, including units with both chassis and bodies.

Commercial segment operating income increased 59.9 percent to $8.6 million, or 3.9 percent of sales, for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 compared to $5.4 million, or 3.0 percent of sales, in the second quarter of fiscal 2014. The increase in operating income was primarily a result of higher sales volume, offset in part by investments in MOVE initiatives.

Corporate – Corporate operating expenses decreased $5.3 million to $32.8 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2015. The decrease in corporate operating expenses in the second quarter of fiscal 2015 was primarily due to lower share-based compensation expense, largely as a result of higher variable, share-based compensation in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 due to an increase in the Company’s share price.

Interest Expense Net of Interest Income – Interest expense net of interest income increased $1.7 million to $28.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2015. The Company incurred $14.7 million and $11.0 million of debt extinguishment costs in connection with the refinancing of the Company’s senior notes during the second quarter of fiscal 2015 and senior notes and credit agreement during the second quarter of fiscal 2014, respectively. Excluding debt extinguishment costs, adjusted1 interest expense net of interest income decreased $2.0 million to $13.5 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2015 largely as a result of the benefit of lower interest rates on the senior notes refinanced in the second quarter of fiscal 2014.

Provision for Income Taxes – The Company recorded income tax expense of $29.5 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2015, or 35.7 percent of pre-tax income. This compares to $22.9 million, or 24.6 percent of pre-tax income, in the second quarter of fiscal 2014. In the second quarter of fiscal 2014, the Company recorded a $12.1 million benefit due to a reduction in a valuation reserve for net operating losses upon securing a favorable tax ruling.

Share Repurchases – Earnings per share in the second quarter of fiscal 2015 improved $0.05 compared to the prior year second quarter as a result of share repurchases completed during the past twelve months.

Six-month Results

The Company reported net sales for the first six months of fiscal 2015 of $2.91 billion and net income of $89.3 million, or $1.12 per share. This compares with net sales of $3.21 billion and net income of $126.4 million, or $1.47 per share, in the first six months of the prior year. Consolidated net sales in the first six months of fiscal 2015 declined 9.4 percent on significantly lower defense segment sales. On a constant currency basis, sales decreased 8.2 percent compared to the first six months of fiscal 2014. Adjusted1 earnings for the first six months of fiscal 2015 were $96.5 million, or $1.21 per share, as compared to $123.9 million, or $1.44 per share, in the first six months of fiscal 2014. Improved operating income results in each of the Company’s non-defense segments were not sufficient to offset the impact of lower sales in the Company’s defense segment. Adjusted operating income for the first six months of fiscal 2015 was negatively impacted by $4.8 million as a result of the strengthening U.S. dollar. Earnings per share in the first six months of fiscal 2015 improved $0.09 compared to the prior year period as a result of lower average diluted shares outstanding. Earnings per share for the first six months of fiscal 2015 were negatively impacted by $0.06 as a result of the strengthening U.S. dollar.

Fiscal 2015 Expectations

The Company reaffirms its fiscal 2015 adjusted1 earnings per share estimate range of $4.00 to $4.25 on projected net sales of $6.5 billion to $6.6 billion. The Company anticipates that third quarter earnings per share will represent the strongest earnings quarter of fiscal 2015 and will be higher than the third quarter of fiscal 2014. Similar to the second quarter of fiscal 2015, the Company expects third quarter sales and operating income in each of its non-defense segments to be higher than the prior year quarter. The Company expects defense segment third quarter results to be similar to the second quarter of fiscal 2015.

Dividend Announcement

The Company’s Board of Directors today declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.17 per share of Common Stock. The dividend will be payable on May 28, 2015 to shareholders of record as of May 14, 2015.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP). The Company is presenting various operating results both on a reported basis and on a basis excluding items that affect comparability of results. When the Company uses operating results excluding certain items as described below, they are considered non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes excluding the impact of these items is useful to investors in comparing the Company’s performance to prior period results. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the Company’s results prepared in accordance with GAAP. The table below presents a reconciliation of the Company’s presented non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures (in millions, except per share amounts):
