TROY, Mich.

TROY, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Horizon Global Corporation (NYSE: HZN), one of the world’s leading manufacturers of branded towing and trailering equipment, today reported financial results for the second quarter of 2019.

"We experienced a slow start to the year, which continued in the second quarter, resulting in a modest decrease in sales, but our team remains focused on returning Horizon Global to its historical performance levels,” commented Carl Bizon, President and Chief Executive Officer of Horizon Global. “In addition to foreign currency headwinds, our results were also impacted by the continuing uncertainty surrounding tariffs and their impact on the entire global supply chain. We have been consistent in our efforts to recover the costs associated with tariffs and the timing may not be immediate. In this environment, it is important that we remain flexible and responsive to the ever-evolving conditions as we work to overcome short-term issues and set the stage for stronger performance over the long term.”

“To that end, we made several significant hires this quarter including a global Chief Financial Officer, a President for Europe-Africa and a Chief Operating Officer for the Americas. I firmly believe that we now have the right senior leadership team in place to not only improve service to our customers but to drive improved operating results as well,” Bizon said.

Bizon continued, “The Americas continued to hold its own and our Europe-Africa team made progress on its ongoing business improvement initiatives. From a macro perspective, the broader European market has been relatively stable, with some pockets of softening demand related mainly to the U.K. market and uncertainty surrounding Brexit, and in what has become a common and recurring theme, our Asia-Pacific segment continued to deliver incredibly strong margins.”

2019 Second Quarter Segment Results

Horizon Americas . Net sales for the quarter were essentially flat at $108.9 million. E-commerce and OE net sales increased $4.9 million and $3.9 million, respectively, while net sales in the retail, aftermarket and industrial channels slowed, and were $7.6 million lower than the prior year comparable period on a combined basis. Management believes the slow start to the prime selling season was caused by unusually wet and cold weather in parts of the country, which was a contributing factor to results in the quarter. As a result, adjusted operating profit(2) decreased to $9.8 million, or 9.0% of net sales, as compared to $10.6 million, or 9.8% of net sales, during the prior year comparable period.

Horizon Europe-Africa . Net sales decreased $7.2 million, or 7.9%, to $83.7 million due primarily to unfavorable foreign currency translation. On a constant currency(1) basis, net sales decreased $1.9 million, or 2.0%, primarily resulting from a decrease of $1.5 million related to the divestiture of a non-core business during the first quarter of 2019. Operating profit for the quarter was $1.6 million, which represented a $57.3 million improvement over the prior year comparable period. Results for the second quarter of 2018 included a goodwill impairment charge of $55.7 million. Adjusted operating profit(2) decreased to $1.6 million, or 1.9% of net sales, as compared to $2.6 million, or 2.9% of net sales, during the prior year comparable period.

Horizon Asia-Pacific . Net sales decreased $3.9 million, or 11.2%, to $30.6 million, due to unfavorable currency translation and a decrease in OE sales. On a constant currency(1) basis, net sales decreased by 6.2%, primarily due to lower shipment volumes in the OE channel. Operating profit decreased 5.8% to $4.4 million, but improved to 14.4% of net sales, primarily due to manufacturing cost savings from operating efficiency projects. Adjusted operating profit(2) decreased to $4.7 million, or 15.3% of net sales, as compared to $4.9 million, or 14.1% of net sales, during the prior year comparable period.

Summary

“We continue to examine our sales trends, market share and customer relationships and remain intensely focused on simplifying our business and unwinding unnecessary and unprofitable business complexity to improve our customer service experience,” Bizon stated.

“In the first quarter, we successfully executed a term loan amendment and second lien term loan, which included our commitment to reduce our First Lien Term Loan by $100 million by mid-next year. To proactively address this commitment, we engaged an investment banking firm to initiate the formal process to explore strategic alternatives, including the sale of our Asia-Pacific business segment. We are currently in active discussions with potential buyers and believe it is probable that we will complete the transaction prior to the May 15, 2020 date by which we are required to reduce our First Lien Term Loan,” Bizon continued.

“As we look across our global business, we remain one team with one goal, focused on providing the best products and service to our customers, and ultimately driving improved financial results through the successful completion of our turnaround,” Bizon concluded.

Forward-Looking Statements

This release contains “forward-looking statements” as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements contained herein speak only as of the date they are made and give our current expectations or forecasts of future events. These forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking words, such as “may,” “could,” “should,” “estimate,” “project,” “forecast,” “intend,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “target,” “plan” or other comparable words, or by discussions of strategy that may involve risks and uncertainties. These forward-looking statements are subject to numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties which could materially affect our business, financial condition or future results including, but not limited to, risks and uncertainties with respect to: the Company’s ability to regain compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing standards and maintain such compliance; the Company’s leverage; liabilities imposed by the Company’s debt instruments; the Company’s ability to meet its covenants in the agreements governing its debt, including the requirement to reduce its first lien term loan, or obtain any amendments or waivers thereto; the Company’s ability to successfully complete the sale of its Asia-Pacific business segment; market demand; competitive factors; supply constraints; material and energy costs; technology factors; litigation; government and regulatory actions, including the impact of any tariffs, quotas or surcharges; the Company’s accounting policies; future trends; general economic and currency conditions; various conditions specific to the Company’s business and industry; the success of our Action Plan, including the actual amount of savings and timing thereof; the success of our business improvement initiatives in Europe-Africa, including the amount of savings and timing thereof; the Company's exposure to product liability claims from customers and end users, and the costs associated therewith; and other risks that are discussed in the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q or Current Reports on Form 8-K. The risks described herein are not the only risks facing our Company. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deemed to be immaterial also may materially adversely affect our business, financial position and results of operations or cash flows. We caution readers not to place undue reliance on such statements, which speak only as of the date hereof. We do not undertake any obligation to review or confirm analysts’ expectations or estimates or to release publicly any revisions to any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

 

(1)

We evaluate growth in our operations on both an as reported basis and a constant currency basis. The constant currency presentation, which is a non-GAAP measure, excludes the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. We believe providing constant currency information provides valuable supplemental information regarding our growth, consistent with how we evaluate our performance. Constant currency revenue results are calculated by translating current period revenue in local currency using the prior period’s currency conversion rate. This non-GAAP measure has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Our use of this term may vary from the use of similarly-titled measures by other issuers due to the potential inconsistencies in the method of calculation and differences due to items subject to interpretation. See Appendix II for reconciliation.

 

(2)

Please refer to “Company and Business Segment Financial Information,” which details certain costs, expenses, other charges, gains or income, collectively described as ‘’Special Items,’’ that are included in the determination of operating profit under GAAP, but that management would not consider important in evaluating the quality of the Company’s operating results as they are not indicative of the Company’s core operating results or may obscure trends useful in evaluating the Company’s continuing activities. Accordingly, the Company presents adjusted operating profit excluding these Special Items to help investors evaluate our operating performance and trends in our business consistent with how management evaluates such performance and trends. Further, the Company presents adjusted operating profit excluding these Special Items to provide investors with a better understanding of the Company’s view of our results as compared to prior periods.

Appendix I

Horizon Global Corporation
Additional Information Regarding Special Items Impacting
Reported GAAP Financial Measures
(Unaudited - dollars in thousands, except per share amounts)

This appendix details certain costs, expenses, other charges, gains or income, collectively described as ‘’Special Items,’’ that are included in the determination of net income (loss) and earnings (loss) per share under GAAP, but that management would not consider important in evaluating the quality of the Company’s operating results as they are not indicative of the Company’s core operating results or may obscure trends useful in evaluating the Company’s continuing activities. Accordingly, the Company presents adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share excluding these Special Items to help investors evaluate our operating performance and trends in our business consistent with how management evaluates such performance and trends.

Appendix II

Horizon Global Corporation
Reconciliation of Reported Revenue Growth
to Constant Currency Basis
(Unaudited)

We evaluate growth in our operations on both an as reported and a constant currency basis. The constant currency presentation, which is a non-GAAP measure, excludes the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. We believe providing constant currency information provides valuable supplemental information regarding our growth, consistent with how we evaluate our performance. Constant currency revenue results are calculated by translating current year revenue in local currency using the prior year's currency conversion rate. This non-GAAP measure has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Our use of this term may vary from the use of similarly-titled measures by other issuers due to the potential inconsistencies in the method of calculation and differences due to items subject to interpretation.
