ParkOhio Announces Third Quarter 2021 Results
  • Revenue of $359 million in Q3 2021, up 5% versus Q3 2020
    • Strong end-market demand in Supply Technologies
    • Continued Automotive production volatility affecting Assembly Components
    • Improved demand in Engineered Products with significant increased bookings of new capital equipment
  • GAAP EPS loss of $(0.60); Adjusted EPS loss of $(0.32)
    • EPS loss driven by operating losses in Assembly Components segment caused by Automotive production volatility, raw material price inflation and higher labor costs

CLEVELAND, OHIO - Park-Ohio Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: PKOH) today announced its results for the third quarter of 2021.

THIRD QUARTER CONSOLIDATED RESULTS

Net sales increased 5.4% to $358.5 million in the third quarter of 2021 compared to net sales of $340.2 million in the third quarter of 2020. Net loss attributable to ParkOhio common shareholders was $7.2 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2021, compared to net income of $5.3 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2020. On an adjusted basis, net loss attributable to ParkOhio common shareholders was $0.32 per diluted share in the 2021 third quarter compared to adjusted net income of $0.52 per diluted share in the 2020 third quarter. Please refer to the table that follows for a reconciliation of net income to adjusted earnings.

The net loss in the quarter resulted from the operational losses in certain plants in our Assembly Components segment caused by the ongoing global semiconductor micro-chip shortage, which impacted sales and production in these plants that provide highly engineered components to the automotive end market. The net sales impact of the micro-chip shortage was approximately $15 million and resulted in an estimated impact of $0.34 to our EPS during the quarter. In addition, raw material price inflation, higher labor costs and various supply chain constraints, including supplier delays that caused extended lead times and increasing freight costs, continued to impact our quarterly results in each business segment.

On a sequential basis compared to the second quarter of 2021, net sales were up 2.4%, adjusted EPS increased slightly and operating cash flow improved by $30.6 million.

Matthew V. Crawford, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President, stated, "While most of our business continues to build momentum throughout 2021, Assembly Components, which services mainly the automotive end market, was particularly challenged. We continue to take aggressive action and anticipate improved performance over the near term as we continue to respond to significant variances caused by supply chain and inflation."

THIRD QUARTER SEGMENT RESULTS

In Supply Technologies, net sales were $154.0 million, up 17% from $132 million in the 2020 period driven by strong customer demand in the majority of our end markets, most notably in heavy-duty truck, recreational vehicles, civil aerospace, semiconductor, and agricultural and industrial equipment. Average daily sales in our supply chain business were up 20% compared to the same period a year ago. Operating income in this segment increased by $0.1 million in the third quarter of 2021 compared to the third quarter a year ago. The margin percentage decrease from 8.0% last year to 6.9% in the 2021 quarter was driven by higher freight costs caused by global supply chain constraints. On a sequential basis, operating income was up $0.5 million and margin was up 30 basis points on comparable sales compared to the second quarter of 2021. During 2021, our focus on pricing initiatives to aggressively respond to the higher product costs in this segment have helped drive strong overall results in spite of the challenging macroeconomic conditions.

In Assembly Components, net sales were $120.2 million compared to $126.9 million the same quarter a year ago, and operating loss was $8.9 million in the 2021 quarter compared to operating income of $6.7 million in the 2020 quarter. The operating loss in the third quarter of 2021 was due to 1) the global semiconductor micro-chip shortages which impacted OEM production levels on certain key automotive platforms, 2) higher raw material price inflation, 3) labor shortages leading to higher labor costs, production inefficiencies, and plant downtime, and 4) charges of $1.8 million in connection with plant closure and consolidation activities. The impact of the global semiconductor micro-chip shortage on sales and operating income in the quarter was $13.1 million and $4.8 million, respectively. In addition, rising raw material prices in our aluminum casting and rubber products businesses increased our costs by approximately $5.0 million compared to the same period a year ago. In response to these macroeconomic headwinds, we are aggressively taking action, including automating certain manufacturing processes to combat labor shortages; implementing changes to improve plant productivity; and implementing customer price increases.

In Engineered Products, net sales were $84.3 million, up 4% compared to $81.3 million in last year's third quarter. The increase was driven by improved results in our capital equipment business, in which net sales were up 10% in the third quarter of 2021 compared to the same period a year ago. Segment operating income was $0.6 million, which included charges of $0.6 million for plant closure and consolidation. On a sequential basis, profitability improved by $1.3 million compared to the second quarter of 2021. The improved sequential performance was driven by increased sales levels, improved manufacturing efficiencies, and the benefits from cost-reduction actions implemented in 2020. Bookings of new capital equipment orders totaled more than $60 million in the third quarter, an increase of 180% compared to the same period a year ago and 40% compared to the second quarter of 2021.

YEAR-TO-DATE CONSOLIDATED RESULTS

Net sales were $1,068.1 million in the first nine months of 2021 compared to net sales of $934.8 million in the 2020 period. Net loss attributable to ParkOhio common shareholders was $7.0 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, in the first nine months of 2021, compared to a net loss of $10.1 million, or $0.83 per diluted share, in the first nine months of 2020. On an adjusted basis, net loss attributable to ParkOhio common shareholders was $0.11 per diluted share in the 2021 period compared to a net loss of $0.52 per diluted share in the 2020 period. Please refer to the table that follows for a reconciliation of net income to adjusted earnings.

During the first nine months of 2021, net working capital increased $45.1 million, due primarily to increased inventory levels as a result of increased customer demand, elongated supplier lead times and increased raw material prices. EBITDA as defined was $13.3 million in the third quarter of 2021 compared to $25.7 million in the 2020 third quarter. Please refer to the table that follows for a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA as defined.

UPDATED FULL YEAR 2021 OUTLOOK

For the year ending December 31, 2021, we expect organic sales growth to be 10% to 12% and total capital expenditures to be within our previously announced range of $28 million to $32 million. We expect our EBITDA as defined margin for 2021 to be reduced to approximately 5%, resulting from the impacts of the ongoing global micro-chip shortage and increasing raw material and supply chain costs. And finally, due primarily to higher working capital requirements in our businesses during 2021, we expect to utilize cash of $25 million to $30 million in 2021 for free cash flow purposes. Please refer to table that follows for a reconciliation of net cash provided by operating activities to free cash flow.

Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited)

Adjusted (loss) income is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company is providing in this press release. Adjusted (loss) income is net 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 (loss) income 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. Adjusted (loss) income is not a measure of performance under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, net loss calculated in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted (loss) income herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The following table reconciles net loss to adjusted (loss) income:
