LAFAYETTE, Ind., Jan. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wabash National Corporation (NYSE:WNC), a diversified industrial manufacturer and a leading producer of semi-trailers, truck bodies and liquid transportation systems, today reported results for the fourth quarter and full-year periods ending December 31, 2017.

Net income for the fourth quarter 2017 was $49.4 million, or $0.80 per diluted share, compared to the fourth quarter 2016 net income of $23.0 million, or $0.36 per diluted share.  Fourth quarter 2017 non-GAAP adjusted earnings was $22.3 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, a $2.0 million decrease as compared to the prior year period.  Non-GAAP adjusted earnings for the fourth quarter 2017 exclude the one-time tax benefit associated with both the adjustment of the Company’s net deferred income tax liability totaling $19.7 million as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 and the reversal of reserves for uncertain tax positions of $12.6 million.  In addition, the fourth quarter 2017 adjusted earnings excludes non-recurring expenses totaling $6.6 million primarily related to acquisition and integration expenses associated with the Company’s acquisition of Supreme Industries, Inc. (“Supreme”) in September 2017 and charges incurred related to the closing of former branch locations.  Net sales for the fourth quarter increased 18 percent to $543 million from $462 million in the prior year quarter and operating income decreased 13 percent to $35.3 million compared to operating income of $40.6 million for the fourth quarter 2016.  Operating EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure that excludes the effects of certain items, for the fourth quarter 2017 was $51.1 million, a decrease of $2.5 million compared to operating EBITDA for the previous year quarter.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2017, the Company reported net income of $111.4 million, or $1.78 per diluted share, on net sales of $1.77 billion, compared to net income of $119.4 million, or $1.82 per diluted share, on net sales of $1.85 billion for the twelve months ended December 31, 2016. Full-year 2017 results included tax benefits associated with both the adjustment of the Company’s net deferred income tax liability totaling $19.7 million as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 and the reversal of reserves for uncertain tax positions of $12.6 million.  Full-year results also include charges totaling $9.5 million related to acquisition and integration related costs for Supreme and early extinguishment of debt incurred with the Company’s purchase of a portion of the outstanding convertible senior notes net of gains from the transition and sale of former branch locations.  Excluding the impact of these items, non-GAAP adjusted earnings for the full-year 2017 were $86.2 million, or $1.38 per diluted share.  Full-year 2016 results included charges totaling $3.3 million related to early extinguishment of debt incurred with the Company’s purchase of a portion of the outstanding convertible senior notes and the impairment of intangible assets in connection with the Company’s segment realignment.  Excluding the impact of these items, non-GAAP adjusted earnings for the full-year 2016 were $121.5 million, or $1.85 per diluted share.  For the full-year 2017, the Company achieved operating EBITDA of $189.0 million, or 10.7 percent of net sales, as compared to $253.0 million, or 13.7 percent of net sales, for the previous year.

Notes:

  1. See “Non-GAAP Measures” below for explanation of the non-GAAP results included above.

Dick Giromini, chief executive officer, stated, “We are pleased overall with the Company’s 2017 performance, as we successfully established a stronger foundation for further growth and productivity for the current year and beyond.  The addition of the Supreme truck body business was a key accomplishment as it not only adds immediate revenue and profit opportunity, but also provides significant diversification into a high-growth segment driven by the ever-increasing adoption of e-commerce.” 

Mr. Giromini continued, “Operationally, following our fifth consecutive record year of profitability in 2016, a small reset was seemingly inevitable at some point.  Despite a somewhat more challenging year for parts of our core businesses, we are nonetheless proud of the team’s efforts in overcoming many of the headwinds throughout the year, leading us to the strong finish in the fourth quarter that positioned us for new levels of success in 2018.  New trailer shipments of 55,050 for the year were near the top-end of our previous guidance and we begin 2018 with a historically strong backlog of orders totaling $1.2 billion, an increase of 64 percent compared to the previous quarter.”

2018 Outlook
Mr. Giromini stated, “Looking at the current year, we continue to believe the demand environment for trailers overall will remain healthy as fleet age, regulatory compliance requirements such as the ELD implementation, a strong economy and customer profitability all support a continuation of an extended trailer cycle.  Adding to this belief is the significant turnaround in demand for both our platform and tank trailer businesses, leading to the strongest backlog in more than two years for those businesses.  Those factors combined with the addition of the Supreme truck body business, impact of the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, and effects of cost and productivity improvement initiatives throughout the business create a great recipe for success.  In 2018 we expect to ship in the range of 56,000 to 60,000 trailer units, along with 22,000 to 24,000 truck body units, for a revenue projection of $2.05 billion to $2.15 billion.  While the first quarter will be slow out of the gate due to timing of shipments, we believe that pace will accelerate beginning in the second quarter and throughout the balance of the year.  Based on those, and other demand and cost assumptions, we project full-year earnings of $1.86 to $2.02 per diluted share.”

Business Segment Highlights
The table below is a summary of select segment operating and financial results prior to the elimination of intersegment sales for the fourth quarter and full-year periods of 2017 and 2016.  As announced in the prior quarter, in the fourth quarter of 2017 the Company added a third reporting segment, Final Mile Products, which includes the results of our Supreme acquisition and the Company’s existing truck body growth and diversification initiative.  A complete disclosure of the results by individual segment is included in the tables following this release.

Commercial Trailer Products’ net sales for the fourth quarter were $386 million, an increase of $7 million, or 2 percent, as compared to the prior year.  Gross profit margin for the fourth quarter decreased 340 basis points as compared to the prior year period primarily due to increases in commodity costs and continued labor constraints resulting in higher overtime requirements to meet current demand.  Operating income decreased $9.8 million, or 20 percent, from the fourth quarter last year to $40.1 million, or 10.4 percent of net sales.

Diversified Products’ net sales for the fourth quarter increased $6 million, or 7 percent, due primarily to the increased demand for liquid tank trailers and process systems products as compared to the previous year period.  Gross profit and profit margins as compared to the prior year period increased $4.5 million and 390 basis points, respectively, primarily due to increased demand levels and the execution of cost management initiatives.  Operating income for the fourth quarter 2017 was $5.5 million, or 6.0 percent of net sales, an increase of $4.4 million compared to the prior year. 

Final Mile Products’ net sales for the fourth quarter totaled $70 million.  Gross profit and gross profit margin for the fourth quarter were $8.1 million and 11.6 percent, respectively.  Excluding non-recurring acquisition and integration related costs, gross profit and operating margins for the fourth quarter were 17.6 percent and 3.9 percent, respectively.  Truck body demand continues to be strong as backlog increased 33 percent compared to the prior year.

Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to disclosing financial results calculated in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the financial information included in this release contains non-GAAP financial measures, including operating EBITDA, operating EBITDA margin, adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per diluted share.

These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures and results calculated in accordance with GAAP, including net income, and reconciliations to GAAP financial statements should be carefully evaluated.

Operating EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, charges incurred in connection with the acquisition and integration of Supreme, impairment of goodwill and other intangible assets, and other non-operating income and expense.  Management believes providing operating EBITDA is useful for investors to understand the Company’s performance and results of operations period to period with the exclusion of the items identified above.  Management believes the presentation of operating EBITDA, when combined with the GAAP presentations of operating income and net income, is beneficial to an investor’s understanding of the Company’s operating performance.  A reconciliation of operating EBITDA to net income is included in the tables following this release.

Adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per diluted share for the three- and twelve-month periods ending December 31, 2017 and 2016 reflect adjustments for charges incurred in connection with acquisition and integration of Supreme, the losses attributable to the Company’s extinguishment of debt, impairment of goodwill and other intangible assets, executive severance costs, income or losses recognized on sale of former branch locations as well as tax benefits associated with the adjustment of the Company’s net deferred income tax liability as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 and reversal of reserves for uncertain tax positions.  Management believes providing adjusted measures and excluding certain items facilitates comparisons to the Company’s prior year periods and, when combined with the GAAP presentation of net income and diluted net income per share, is beneficial to an investor’s understanding of the Company’s performance.  A reconciliation of adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per diluted share to net income and net income per diluted share is included in the tables following this release.
