Carlisle Reports Third Quarter 2017 Results

October 24, 2017
  • Record Third Quarter Net Sales of $1,089.1 million
  • Third Quarter Reported Earnings per Share from Continuing Operations of $1.37, including $0.25 of Restructuring, Facility Rationalization and Acquisition Related Costs
  • Increasing Revenue Outlook for Full-Year 2017

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Carlisle Companies Incorporated (NYSE:CSL) reported record net sales of $1,089.1 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017, a 9.9% increase from $991.0 million in the third quarter of 2016. Acquired net sales contributed a total of 5.3% in the quarter. Organic net sales grew 4.4% (organic net sales are defined as net sales excluding both sales from acquisitions within the last twelve months and the impact of changes in foreign exchange rates versus the U.S. Dollar). Foreign exchange had a positive impact of 0.2%.

Adjusted diluted EPS declined primarily due to lower sales and margin in the Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CIT) segment, rising raw material costs in the Carlisle Construction Materials (CCM) segment, and higher Special Items related to acquisition costs, facility rationalization and plant restructuring projects at CCM, CIT, Carlisle Fluid Technologies (CFT) and the Carlisle Brake & Friction (CBF) segments. Partially offsetting this decline were higher net sales volume at CCM, acquired earnings at Carlisle FoodService Products (CFS), and savings from the Carlisle Operating System (COS).

Comment

D. Christian “Chris” Koch, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are extremely pleased with our record third quarter sales performance, which reflects the continued dedication and commitment of our worldwide team of employees in executing our core strategies. Their efforts resulted in above average organic growth, solid EBIT performance, and advancement of our continuous improvement culture throughout the company. Moreover, we continued to execute on our previously announced restructuring and facility rationalization initiatives, which we expect will contribute to Carlisle's profitable future growth.

“Our third quarter results demonstrated solid progress against the significant headwinds we have faced in 2017. Despite rising raw material costs at CCM, continued market and technology challenges at CIT in their commercial aerospace business, and the prolonged downturn in global commodity markets at CBF, we achieved solid overall EBIT performance. We are also pleased that core CIT results slightly exceeded our expectations; CCM pricing continues to be relatively stable; and organic growth initiatives at CBF have begun to pay off.

“As evidenced by our commitment to allocate almost $1 billion into four acquisitions year-to-date, including the planned acquisition of Accella Performance Materials ("Accella"), we continue to deploy capital in pursuit of accretive M&A opportunities that are consistent with our strategic plans. During the quarter, we paid $23.2 million in dividends, and repurchased approximately $116.4 million of Carlisle shares, bringing our total 2017 share repurchases to $266.4 million. In furtherance of our stated objectives to optimize our capital structure, we will continue to make investments in our businesses, return capital to shareholders through consistent quarterly dividends and share repurchases, and maintain flexibility with our balance sheet to support continued growth through acquisitions."

Carlisle Construction Materials (CCM) achieved record net sales, reflecting high single digit growth experienced in favorable U.S. non-residential roofing markets. The year-over-year EBIT decline was primarily due to rising raw material costs and acquisition related costs, partially offset by higher net sales volume and COS savings.

On October 2nd we announced the planned $670.0 million acquisition of Accella Performance Materials ("Accella"), a premier specialty polyurethane growth platform with approximately $430.0 million of annual net sales. The planned acquisition of Accella is part of our well-established strategy of providing customers with high quality, innovative solutions for building envelope applications. Upon completion, the combined Accella and Carlisle team will bring together significant engineering and industry expertise to create highly engineered solutions for our customers. We expect the acquisition to close by the end of October.

Favorable conditions in the U.S. commercial roofing market are expected to continue for the remainder of 2017. For full year 2017, we are maintaining CCM’s outlook at high single digit net sales growth.

Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CIT) net sales in the third quarter slightly exceeded our expectations and EBIT improved sequentially due to higher volumes and COS initiatives. Year-over-year EBIT decline was primarily related to unfavorable mix, volume decline, and higher facility rationalization and plant restructuring costs.

We now expect a net sales decline of low to mid-single digits versus prior year for CIT in 2017.

Carlisle FoodService Products (CFS) recorded its ninth consecutive quarter of year-over-year organic sales growth. Net sales and EBIT in the third quarter 2017 reflected growth related to the January 2017 acquisition of San Jamar, which contributed $22.9 million to net sales and $2.8 million to EBIT, including $3.0 million of amortization expense.

We continue to expect CFS to achieve 2017 full year net sales growth of approximately 40%, inclusive of San Jamar.

Carlisle Fluid Technologies (CFT) net sales in the third quarter of 2017 reflected higher systems sales volumes in the Americas and higher standard product sales in EMEA and Asia Pacific within the Automotive Refinish and General Industrial markets. Partially offsetting the Americas performance was lower systems sales in Asia Pacific. Accelerated restructuring and facility rationalization costs, and continuation of investments to position the business for future growth and margin improvement, contributed to EBIT decline and will continue in the fourth quarter.

On October 3rd, we announced the appointment of Shelley Bausch as President of Carlisle Fluid Technologies. Shelley has demonstrated effective leadership throughout her career and is an excellent addition to the CFT team as we complete our integration efforts and enter the growth phase for this business. We expect Shelley and the CFT team to complete footprint consolidation efforts in the fourth quarter and move to placing a significant amount of effort on new product development, expansion into core adjacencies, and accelerate profitable sales growth.

The outlook across CFT’s global end markets continues to be favorable, and our expectations for net sales growth remain in the mid-single digit percent range for 2017.

Carlisle Brake & Friction (CBF) achieved strong organic net sales growth in the third quarter, reflecting new business launches and growth in their key end markets of construction, agriculture, and mining. Adjusted EBIT and EBIT margin improved on higher volumes.

As mentioned at the close of the second quarter, we continue to be cautiously optimistic that CBF end markets have reached the bottom of the cycle, and look to see strong sales growth for the remainder of the year. We now expect CBF to achieve mid-teens net sales growth in 2017.

Koch concluded by stating, “We are pleased with our record third quarter results and are now planning for total net sales growth in the high single digit percent range for 2017. We expect capital expenditures will be approximately $150 million as investments at CCM, CIT, and CFT move forward, and the additional cost reduction improvements at CBF related to their footprint rationalization efforts continue. We remain favorably positioned with our liquidity and strong balance sheet to continue to pursue growth opportunities both organically and through acquisitions, while returning value to shareholders.”

Cash Flow

Cash flow provided from operations of $299.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was $55.5 million lower than cash provided of $355.1 million for the prior year period primarily due to an increase in cash usage for working capital to support organic sales growth.

Free cash flow (defined as cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures, and comprised of continuing and discontinued operations) was $193.8 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2017, a decrease of $84 million versus the prior year. The decrease in free cash flow was primarily attributable to a greater usage of cash for working capital and higher capital expenditures versus the prior year. For the full year, we expect free cash flow conversion to be approximately 100%.

Net cash used in investing activities of $385.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 included $280.0 million used primarily for the acquisition of San Jamar and Drexel Metals, net of cash acquired.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2017, we utilized $266.4 million in cash to repurchase approximately 2.7 million shares of Carlisle stock. The year-to-date share repurchase activity occurred in the second and third quarters of 2017.

As of September 30, 2017, we had $147.6 million cash on hand and $815.0 million of availability under our revolving credit facility.

  The reconciling item of $18.9 million related to income tax expense reflects the difference between the third quarter 2016 anticipated full year tax rate of 42.5%, which includes the impact of the impairment charges, and the tax rate excluding the impairment charges of 33.2%. The full year tax benefit of the impairment was $8.9 million.

(2)

Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2016 is calculated based on diluted average shares outstanding of 64,353,000, which excludes performance awards and stock options representing approximately 578,000 shares that were excluded from the As Reported calculation as they were anti-dilutive.
 

This selected Non-GAAP financial information for the third quarter of 2016 are presented to exclude the impairment charges at Carlisle Brake & Friction. Management believes adjusted results more accurately portray the ongoing operational performance and fundamentals of the underlying business and present a more useful comparison between current results and results in prior operating periods. Management also uses the non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating and planning decisions and in evaluating the Company’s performance.
