Belden Reports Solid Results for Second Quarter 2017

Aug 02, 2017

ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Belden Inc. (NYSE: BDC), a global leader in high quality, end-to-end signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, today reported fiscal second quarter 2017 results for the period ended July 2, 2017.

Second Quarter 2017

On a GAAP basis, revenues for the quarter totaled $610.6 million, increasing $9.0 million, or 1.5%, compared to $601.6 million in the second quarter 2016. Net income was $36.0 million, a decrease of $6.1 million compared to the prior-year period, primarily due to a $6.0 million increase in income tax expense. This was the result of discrete incremental benefits from tax planning initiatives in the prior year. Net income as a percentage of revenues was 5.9%, decreasing 110 basis points from 7.0% in the prior-year period. EPS totaled $0.64 compared to $0.99 in the second quarter 2016. The current quarter EPS includes a $0.20 per share dilutive impact from the mandatory convertible preferred stock issued in the third quarter 2016.

Revenues for the quarter totaled $610.6 million, increasing $7.2 million, or 1.2%, compared to adjusted revenues of $603.4 million in the second quarter 2016. Adjusted EBITDA margin in the second quarter was 18.3%, increasing 40 basis points from 17.9% in the year-ago period. Adjusted net income was $64.3 million, a decrease of $1.2 million compared to the prior-year period, primarily due to the increase in income tax expense discussed above. Adjusted EPS was $1.29 compared to $1.54 in the second quarter 2016. The current quarter adjusted EPS includes a $0.20 per share dilutive impact from the mandatory convertible preferred stock. Adjusted results are non-GAAP measures, and a non-GAAP reconciliation table is provided as an appendix to this release.

John Stroup, President, CEO, and Chairman of Belden Inc., said, “Overall, the business performed in line with our expectations in the second quarter, and our proven Lean enterprise system continues to drive margin expansion in 2017. We were very pleased to complete the Thinklogical acquisition during the quarter, and we remain well-positioned with a number of other attractive inorganic opportunities.”

Outlook

“We are increasing our full-year revenue guidance to reflect the Thinklogical acquisition. We are also updating our EPS guidance to reflect the accretive impact of this acquisition and our recent debt refinancing at very favorable terms. We expect double-digit EPS growth in the second half of the year,” said Mr. Stroup.

The Company expects third quarter 2017 revenues to be $615 - $635 million. For the full year ending December 31, 2017, the Company now expects revenues to be $2.415 - $2.445 billion, compared to prior guidance of $2.355 - $2.405 billion.

The Company expects third quarter 2017 GAAP EPS to be $0.10 - $0.20. For the full year ending December 31, 2017, the Company now expects GAAP EPS to be $2.82 - $3.02, compared to the previously guided range of $3.31 - $3.56.

The Company expects third quarter 2017 adjusted EPS to be $1.35 - $1.45. For the full year ending December 31, 2017, the Company now expects adjusted EPS to be $5.35 - $5.55, compared to the previously guided range of $4.95 - $5.20.

BELDEN INC.
RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES
(Unaudited)

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, we provide non-GAAP operating results adjusted for certain items, including: asset impairments; accelerated depreciation expense due to plant consolidation activities; purchase accounting effects related to acquisitions, such as the adjustment of acquired inventory and deferred revenue to fair value and transaction costs; severance, restructuring, and acquisition integration costs; gains (losses) recognized on the disposal of businesses and tangible assets; amortization of intangible assets; gains (losses) on debt extinguishment; certain revenues and gains (losses) from patent settlements; discontinued operations; and other costs. We adjust for the items listed above in all periods presented, unless the impact is immaterial to our financial statements. When we calculate the tax effect of the adjustments, we include all current and deferred income tax expense commensurate with the adjusted measure of pre-tax profitability.

We utilize the adjusted results to review our ongoing operations without the effect of these adjustments and for comparison to budgeted operating results. We believe the adjusted results are useful to investors because they help them compare our results to previous periods and provide important insights into underlying trends in the business and how management oversees our business operations on a day-to-day basis. As an example, we adjust for the purchase accounting effect of recording deferred revenue at fair value in order to reflect the revenues that would have otherwise been recorded by acquired businesses had they remained as independent entities. We believe this presentation is useful in evaluating the underlying performance of acquired companies. Similarly, we adjust for other acquisition-related expenses, such as amortization of intangibles and other impacts of fair value adjustments because they generally are not related to the acquired business' core operating performance. As an additional example, we exclude the costs of restructuring programs, which can occur from time to time for our current businesses and/or recently acquired businesses. We exclude the costs in calculating adjusted results to allow us and investors to evaluate the performance of the business based upon its expected ongoing operating structure. We believe the adjusted measures, accompanied by the disclosure of the costs of these programs, provides valuable insight.

Adjusted results should be considered only in conjunction with results reported according to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

BELDEN INC.
RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES
(Unaudited)

We define free cash flow, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, as net cash from operating activities adjusted for capital expenditures net of the proceeds from the disposal of tangible assets. We believe free cash flow provides useful information to investors regarding our ability to generate cash from business operations that is available for acquisitions and other investments, service of debt principal, dividends and share repurchases. We use free cash flow, as defined, as one financial measure to monitor and evaluate performance and liquidity. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered only in conjunction with financial measures reported according to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. Our definition of free cash flow may differ from definitions used by other companies.

Forward-Looking Statements

This release and any statements made by us concerning the release may contain forward-looking statements including our expectations for the third quarter and full-year 2017. Forward-looking statements include statements regarding future financial performance (including revenues, expenses, earnings, margins, cash flows, dividends, capital expenditures and financial condition), plans and objectives, and related assumptions. In some cases these statements are identifiable through the use of words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “forecast,” “guide,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “project,” “target,” “can,” “could,” “may,” “should,” “will,” “would” and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements reflect management’s current beliefs and expectations and are not guarantees of future performance. Actual results may differ materially from those suggested by any forward-looking statements for a number of reasons, including, without limitation: the impact of a challenging global economy or a downturn in served markets; the competitiveness of the global broadcast, enterprise, and industrial markets; the inability to successfully complete and integrate acquisitions in furtherance of the Company’s strategic plan; volatility in credit and foreign exchange markets; variability in the Company’s quarterly and annual effective tax rates; the cost and availability of raw materials including copper, plastic compounds, electronic components, and other materials; disruption of, or changes in, the Company’s key distribution channels; the inability to execute and realize the expected benefits from strategic initiatives (including revenue growth, cost control, and productivity improvement programs); disruptions in the Company’s information systems including due to cyber-attacks; the inability of the Company to develop and introduce new products and competitive responses to our products; the inability to retain senior management and key employees; assertions that the Company violates the intellectual property of others and the ownership of intellectual property by competitors and others that prevents the use of that intellectual property by the Company; risks related to the use of open source software; the impact of regulatory requirements and other legal compliance issues; perceived or actual product failures; political and economic uncertainties in the countries where the Company conducts business, including emerging markets; the impairment of goodwill and other intangible assets and the resulting impact on financial performance; disruptions and increased costs attendant to collective bargaining groups and other labor matters; and other factors.

For a more complete discussion of risk factors, please see our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, filed with the SEC on February 17, 2017.
