  • Sequential Revenue Growth of 49%
  • GAAP EPS of $0.44; Adjusted EPS of $0.52
  • Operating Cash Flow of $23 million; Free Cash Flow of $18 million
  • Liquidity increased to $243 million
  • Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend of $0.125

CLEVELAND, OHIO - Park-Ohio Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: PKOH) today announced its results for the third quarter of 2020.

Matthew V. Crawford, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President, stated, "Our third quarter results reflect a substantial increase in both revenues and profitability sequentially from the second quarter led by improvements in each segment. These improvements are beginning to demonstrate the value of a more focused business that will enjoy greater operating leverage and increased long-term competitiveness as volumes return and new business is added."

THIRD QUARTER CONSOLIDATED RESULTS

Net sales were $340.2 million in the third quarter of 2020 compared to net sales of $403.4 million in the third quarter of 2019. Net income attributable to ParkOhio common shareholders was $5.3 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2020, compared to net income of $12.2 million, or $0.99 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2019. On an adjusted basis, net income attributable to ParkOhio common shareholders was $0.52 per diluted share in the 2020 quarter compared to net income of $1.01 per diluted share in the 2019 quarter. Please refer to the table that follows for a reconciliation of net income to adjusted earnings.

Net sales improved during the third quarter as a result of strong customer demand in many end markets, resulting in a net sales increase of 49% compared to second quarter 2020. Sales in certain end markets, such as Automotive, Semiconductor, Medical, Lawn and Garden, and Power Sports, were in excess of 90% of prior year levels, while other end markets, such as Commercial and Military Aerospace, Oil and Gas, and Steel, have been slower to recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. During the first half of 2020, the Company reacted to the significant drop in demand triggered by the pandemic, taking actions to aggressively reduce costs and manage both working capital and capital spending. These actions included the consolidation or permanent downsizing of several facilities; permanent headcount reductions and temporary layoffs; salaried employee and Board compensation reductions; discretionary spending cuts; and the elimination of all non-critical capital spending. As a result of these actions, operating margins in the third quarter improved year-over-year in certain businesses, most notably in our Supply Technologies segment where solid end market recovery and the benefit of cost-reduction actions resulted in strong year-over-year operating income flow-through during the quarter. We expect continued margin improvement in our other business segments as market demand improves and benefits from the cost-reduction actions taken become fully realized.

Further, we generated $23.3 million of operating cash flow and $17.8 million of free cash flow in the third quarter of 2020. Our liquidity increased 23% during the quarter to $242.5 million at September 30, 2020, which included cash on-hand of $50.9 million and $191.6 million of unused borrowing capacity under our various banking arrangements. The effective income tax rate during the quarter was 5.5%. This rate is lower than the U.S. statutory rate of 21% due primarily to a U.S. net operating loss carryback to a prior year under the CARES Act and a tax benefit from the favorable impact of final GILTI regulations.

QUARTERLY CASH DIVIDEND

As a result of our improved results and strong liquidity, as well as our expectations of continued economic recovery in most end markets in the fourth quarter of 2020 and into 2021, the Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.125 per share on the common stock outstanding, to be paid on November 30, 2020, to shareholders of record as of the close of business on November 16, 2020.

THIRD QUARTER SEGMENT RESULTS

In Supply Technologies, net sales totaled $132.0 million compared to $148.6 million in last year's third quarter. Although year-over-year sales were lower by 11%, driven by sales declines in Heavy-Duty Truck, Agricultural and Industrial Equipment, and Commercial and Military Aerospace, we experienced increased year-over-year sales from Power Sports and Recreational Vehicles, Semiconductor, Medical and Lawn and Garden sectors. On a sequential basis, third quarter sales were up 40% compared to the second quarter of 2020, as demand levels in most end markets recovered from second quarter sales levels. Despite the lower sales levels in the 2020 quarter relative to last year's third quarter, operating income margins in this segment improved 130 basis points year-over-year, reflecting the benefit of cost-reduction actions and favorable sales mix.

In Assembly Components, net sales were $126.9 million compared to $135.9 million in last year's third quarter. Sales have improved sequentially every month since April 2020, and sales in the month of September 2020 were at their highest level since March of 2019. While our operations continue their steady recovery and sales are up 130% from the second quarter of 2020, increased plant costs, caused primarily by labor and start-up costs, contributed to lower operating margins during the quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. While we expect some typical seasonal demand softening in the fourth quarter of 2020, we expect improved margins in the fourth quarter of 2020 and into 2021 resulting from the cost-reduction actions that we have taken and improved plant floor efficiencies.

In Engineered Products, net sales were $81.3 million compared to $118.9 million in last year's third quarter, a decline of 32%. The third quarter sales decline was a result of continued weak demand in certain key end markets, including Aerospace and Defense, Oil and Gas, and Rail, which affected both our industrial equipment and forged and machined products businesses. Bookings for new equipment continue to be at sluggish levels, as global capital spending is being deferred into future periods as a result of the economic impact of the pandemic. On a sequential basis, sales in this segment were up 3% compared to last quarter, and operating income improved to $1.3 million compared to a loss of $0.8 million in the second quarter of 2020.

YEAR-TO-DATE CONSOLIDATED RESULTS

Net sales were $934.8 million in the first nine months of 2020 compared to net sales of $1,238.8 million in the 2019 period. Net loss attributable to ParkOhio common shareholders was $(10.1) million, or $(0.83) per diluted share, in the first nine months of 2020, compared to net income of $31.0 million, or $2.51 per diluted share, in the first nine months of 2019. On an adjusted basis, net loss attributable to ParkOhio common shareholders was $(0.52) per diluted share in the 2020 period compared to net income of $3.09 per diluted share in the 2019 period. Please refer to the table that follows for a reconciliation of net income to adjusted earnings.

Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited)

Adjusted income (loss) is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company is providing in this press release. Adjusted income (loss) is net income (loss) calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), adjusted for special items. The Company presents this non-GAAP financial measure because management uses adjusted income (losses) to compare its operating performance on a consistent basis over multiple periods because they remove the impact of certain significant non-cash credits or charges and certain infrequent items impacting net income (loss). Adjusted income (loss) is not a measure of performance under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, net income (loss) calculated in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted income (loss) herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The following table reconciles net income (loss) to adjusted income (loss):

Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited)

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company is providing in this press release. Free cash flow is calculated as net cash provided by operating activities minus purchases of property, plant and equipment. The Company presents this non-GAAP financial measure because management uses free cash flow to assess the Company's performance and allocate its capital for various purposes. Free cash flow is not a measure of performance under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, cash flow calculated in accordance with GAAP. Free cash flow herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The following table reconciles net cash provided by operating activities to free cash flow:
