Mayville Engineering Company, Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2020 Results

Company Release - 11/2/2020 6:00 PM ET

Sequential Improvement in Financial Performance;
Further Debt Reduction Based on Cash Flow Strength

MAYVILLE, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Mayville Engineering Company (NYSE: MEC) (the “Company” or “MEC”), a leading U.S.-based value added manufacturing partner that provides a broad range of prototyping and tooling, production fabrication, coating, assembly and aftermarket services, today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020.

Third Quarter Highlights:

  • Produced net sales of $91.1 million
  • Recorded a net loss of $1.1 million
  • Generated Adjusted EBITDA of $9.8 million, or 10.8% of net sales
  • Completed Greenwood facility consolidation and process optimization efforts improving performance profile
  • Reduced total funded debt by $14.6 million to $62.8 million

“Following a difficult second quarter, we are pleased with our sequentially improved performance this quarter, with the majority of customers increasing order volumes as they continued to ramp up production,” stated Robert D. Kamphuis, Chairman, President and CEO. “While we are pleased with the progress made to optimize our performance through process improvement, investment in automation and structural overhead reduction, we remain focused on capturing all benefits of returning volume and pursuing a variety of long-term growth opportunities.”

Third Quarter 2020 Results

Net sales were $91.1 million for the third quarter of 2020 as compared to $128.5 million for the same prior year period. The decline was driven by manufacturing volume reductions due to the ongoing pandemic, and the continuation of customer destocking activities, particularly within the Agriculture and Construction and Access Equipment end markets served. Despite the volume declines, all existing customer relationships and manufacturing programs remain intact.

Manufacturing margins were $9.7 million for the third quarter of 2020, as compared to $14.6 million for the same prior year period, due to under-absorbed overhead costs, plus costs related to finalizing the consolidation of the Greenwood, SC facility.

Profit sharing, bonuses, and deferred compensation expenses were $2.3 million for the third quarter of 2020, as compared to $0.7 million for the same prior year period. The increase was driven mostly by the re-establishment of discretionary 401(k) accruals based on improving business conditions.

Other selling, general and administrative expenses were $4.5 million for the third quarter of 2020 as compared to $6.1 million for the same prior year period, which included $0.9 million of one-time IPO and Defiance Metal Products (DMP) acquisition related expenses. Excluding the one-time items from the prior year, these expenses decreased by $0.7 million driven by DMP integration synergies, lower travel expenses, and other cost saving initiatives.

Interest expense was $0.6 million for the third quarter of 2020, as compared to $1.0 million for the same prior year period, due to lower current debt levels and the improved terms of the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement.

Income tax expense was $0.7 million for the third quarter of 2020 bringing the company’s net operating loss carryforward to approximately $23 million. Future pre-tax income will be offset against our federal net operating loss carryforward until fully utilized.

Greenwood, SC Facility Consolidation

During the second quarter of 2020, the Company implemented the closure and consolidation of its Greenwood, SC manufacturing facility, which was finalized in the third quarter. All components previously manufactured in Greenwood are now being produced at five other MEC facilities, maintaining overall manufacturing capacity with a smaller footprint, while lowering overhead costs and working capital requirements. The Company incurred $0.7 million of one-time costs during the third quarter, following $1.8 million of costs in the second quarter. These costs are included in cost of sales, which negatively impact manufacturing margins.

Kamphuis explained, “Based on our investments in new technology and automation, which resulted in a smaller footprint requirement to maintain manufacturing capacity, we were able to proactively consolidate this facility delivering both short- and projected long-term benefits. Our operations team, led by COO Rand Stille, completed the process quickly and effectively through focused execution, transferring production capacity to the five other facilities with no disruption to our customers.”

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

During the third quarter of 2020, the Company further strengthened its balance sheet by paying down $14.6 million of debt, reducing total funded debt to $62.8 million, and resulting in a leverage ratio of approximately 2.2x.

In June 2020, the Company amended its credit agreement in order to provide added insurance against future macroeconomic events, increasing its maximum leverage ratio from 3.25x to 4.25x through the fourth quarter of 2020, adjusting quarterly thereafter until returning to the original 3.25x threshold during the fourth quarter of 2021. The debt capacity and maturity date of the credit facility were unaffected by the amendment.

Capital expenditures were $5.4 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020, as compared to $22.8 million for the same prior year period. The decline is due to the completion of the investment cycle initiated in 2019, plus focus on leveraging previous investments. Overall, capital expenditures for 2020 are expected to be in the range of $10 to $13 million.

“Due to our strong cash flow generation, we were able to further strengthen our balance sheet by paying down debt during the quarter. With our overall debt level continuing to fall and the attractive terms of our amended credit agreement, we are well positioned financially to execute on our long-term goals,” explained Todd Butz, CFO.

Outlook

Based on the ongoing economic uncertainty related to the pandemic, and consistent with most of our customers, the Company is not providing a financial outlook.

Kamphuis commented, “Overall, current data trends indicate that customer de-stocking seen in the last 12 months is largely complete in most end markets. We are encouraged by the general demand trends we are starting to see, and believe we are in a good position to continue our third quarter performance, concluding the year on a positive note. With continued stability in our end markets, we believe we are well positioned to deliver improved performance over the medium- to long-term.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains financial information calculated in a manner other than in accordance with U.S generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).

The non-GAAP measures used in this press release are EBITDA, EBITDA Margin, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin.

EBITDA represents net income before interest expense, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation, and amortization. EBITDA Margin represents EBITDA as a percentage of net sales for each period. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA before transaction fees incurred in connection with the DMP acquisition and our initial public offering, the loss on debt extinguishment relating to our December 2018 credit agreement, non-cash purchase accounting charges including costs recognized on the step-up of acquired inventory and contingent consideration fair value adjustments, one-time increases in deferred compensation and long term incentive plan expenses related to the initial public offering, stock-based compensation and restructuring expenses related to the closure of the Greenwood facility. Adjusted EBITDA Margin represents Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net sales for each period. These metrics are supplemental measures of our operating performance that are neither required by, nor presented in accordance with, GAAP. These measures should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of our operating performance. We present Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin as management uses these measures as key performance indicators, and we believe they are measures frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other parties to evaluate companies in our industry. These measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.

Our calculation of EBITDA, EBITDA Margin, Adjusted EBIDTA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin may not be comparable to the similarly named measures reported by other companies. Potential differences between our measures of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA compared to other similar companies’ measures of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may include differences in capital structure and tax positions.

Please reference our reconciliation of net income, the most directly comparable measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, and the calculation of EBITDA Margin and Adjusted EBITDA Margin included in this press release.
