The Manitowoc Company Reports First-Quarter 2021 Results

·13 min read

Manitowoc reports net sales of $354.3 million; Adjusted EBITDA(1)of $21.1 million; orders of $473.6 million

The Manitowoc Company, Inc. (NYSE: MTW), (the "Company" or "Manitowoc") a leading global manufacturer of cranes and lifting solutions, today reported a first-quarter net loss of ($3.1) million, or ($0.09) per diluted share. First-quarter adjusted net loss(1) was ($2.2) million, or ($0.06) per diluted share.

Net sales in the first quarter increased 7.6% year-over-year to $354.3 million and were favorably impacted by $15.4 million from changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $21.1 million, or 6.0% of net sales, increased $4.8 million over the prior year.

First-quarter orders of $473.6 million increased 26.3% from the prior year, 20.7% on a currency neutral basis. Backlog as of March 31, 2021 totaled $662.5 million, an increase of 27.2% year-over-year, and an increase of 22.0% from December 31, 2020.

"I am proud of our team’s execution during the quarter while navigating through the COVID-19 pandemic. We are encouraged by positive trends in crane demand across all segments, but as the world normalizes, we continue to see significant inflationary pressures and a multitude of supply chain challenges," commented Aaron H. Ravenscroft, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Manitowoc Company, Inc.

"As I have said, 2021 will be a year of transition. We expect inflation and supply chain challenges to persist for the balance of the year, more heavily impacting second half results. While we are taking actions to mitigate these headwinds, we remain resolute in our long-term strategy to grow the company by continuing to invest in our four strategic priorities," concluded Ravenscroft.

Outlook

Manitowoc is initiating full-year 2021 adjusted EBITDA guidance of $90 million to $105 million.

Footnote

(1)Adjusted net loss, adjusted diluted net 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.
