  • Net income attributable to shareholders of $78.7 million, or $0.29 per diluted share.

  • Adjusted Net Income per diluted share of $0.35.

  • Net income from continuing operations of $85.6 million, or a margin of 9.8%.

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $189.4 million, or a margin of 21.7%.

  • Generated $291.7 million of operating cash flow year to date, compared to $18.8 million in the prior year.

Gates Industrial Corporation plc (NYSE:GTES), a leading global provider of application-specific power transmission and fluid power solutions, today reported results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2023.

Ivo Jurek, Gates Industrial's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We generated record revenues and diluted earnings per share for a third quarter. Our year-over-year margin improvement was fueled by a 330 basis point increase in gross margin and supported by various enterprise initiatives. In addition, we generated solid free cash flow and improved our balance sheet position relative to the prior year period."

Jurek continued, "We have increased the midpoint of our full year 2023 guidance for adjusted EBITDA and adjusted earnings per share. I am pleased with our results year to date and appreciate the hard work and diligence of our more than 15,000 employees. We are highly focused on finishing 2023 strong and maintaining our operational momentum heading in 2024."

Third-Quarter Financial Results

Third-quarter net sales were $872.9 million, an increase of 1.4% over the prior-year quarter net sales of $860.7 million, including a 0.5% core revenue decrease more than offset by a favorable foreign currency impact of 1.9%. Our Replacement business grew year-over-year and partially mitigated slower activity in our Industrial First-Fit businesses. Automotive Replacement core revenues increased in the mid-single digit range year-over-year. The company generated solid core growth in the On-Highway, Automotive and Energy end markets relative to the prior-year period.

Third-quarter net income attributable to shareholders was $78.7 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared to net income attributable to shareholders of $51.9 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, in the prior-year quarter. Adjusted Net Income was $94.6 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, compared to $89.4 million, or $0.31 per diluted share in the prior-year period, fueled by improved operating performance. The diluted weighted-average number of shares outstanding in the third quarter of 2023 was 267,835,011 compared to 285,174,344 in the third quarter of 2022.

Third-quarter net income from continuing operations was $85.6 million, or 9.8% of net sales, compared to $56.0 million, or 6.5% of net sales in the prior-year quarter representing an expansion of 330 basis points year-over-year driven by higher operating income and lower income tax expense partially offset by higher net interest expense.

Third-quarter Adjusted EBITDA was $189.4 million compared to $177.7 million in the prior-year quarter. Third-quarter Adjusted EBITDA margin of 21.7% represented an expansion of 110 basis points compared to the prior-year quarter. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA margin stemmed largely from favorable pricing slightly offset by inflation, lower volumes and higher variable compensation expense.

The segment saw the highest core growth rates in the Automotive, On-Highway, Construction and Energy end markets. The replacement channels posted moderate core growth year-over-year partially offset by a modest decrease in first-fit core revenues.

Third-quarter Power Transmission Adjusted EBITDA was $116.5 million compared to $101.9 million in the prior-year quarter. The expansion in Adjusted EBITDA was driven by pricing offset partially by lower volumes. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 21.7% represented an improvement of 220 basis points compared to the prior-year quarter.

Third-quarter Fluid Power net sales decreased 0.5% to $336.5 million compared to the prior-year quarter, reflecting a core revenue decrease of 3.0%. Foreign currency effects were favorable by 2.5%. The segment experienced core revenue growth in the Automotive, Energy and On-Highway end markets. The replacement channels outperformed the first-fit channels.

Third-quarter Fluid Power Adjusted EBITDA was $72.9 million compared to $75.8 million in the prior-year quarter, resulting in an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 21.7%, a decline of 70 basis points compared to the prior-year quarter. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA was driven by lower volumes and higher variable incentive compensation offset partially by pricing.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

During the third quarter of 2023, the Company generated $107.8 million of cash from operations. Third-quarter capital expenditures decreased to $17.4 million from $27.6 million in the prior-year quarter.

As of September 30, 2023, the Company had total cash and cash equivalents of $556.8 million and total outstanding debt of $2.5 billion, as well as committed borrowing headroom of $468.4 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures, which management believes are useful to investors, securities analysts and other interested parties. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as its key profitability measure. This is a non-GAAP measure that represents EBITDA before certain items that impact comparison of the performance of our business either period-over-period or with other businesses. We use Adjusted EBITDA as our measure of segment profitability to assess the performance of our businesses, and it is used for total Gates as well because we believe it is important to consider our total profitability on a basis that is consistent with that of our operating segments. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is Adjusted EBITDA for a particular period expressed as a percentage of net sales for that period.

Management uses Adjusted Net Income as an additional measure of profitability. Adjusted Net Income is a non-GAAP measure that represents net income attributable to shareholders before certain items that impact comparison of the performance of our business, either period-over-period or with other businesses.

Core revenue growth is a non-GAAP measure that represents net sales for the period excluding the impacts of movements in foreign currency rates and the first-year impacts of acquisitions and disposals, where applicable. We present core revenue growth because it allows for a meaningful comparison of year-over-year performance without the volatility caused by foreign currency gains or losses, or the incomparability that would be caused by the impact of an acquisition or disposal.

Management uses Free Cash Flow to measure cash generation. Free Cash Flow is a non-GAAP measure that represents net cash provided by operations less capital expenditures. Free Cash Flow Conversion is a measure of Free Cash Flow expressed as a percentage of Adjusted Net Income. We use this metric as a measure of the success of our business in converting Adjusted Net Income into cash.

Management uses Net Leverage as a measure of our liquidity and in assessing the strength of our balance sheet. Net Leverage is a non-GAAP measure that represents the number of times by which net debt (principal amount of debt less cash and cash equivalents) exceeds Adjusted EBITDA for the last twelve months of the applicable period.

These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered only as supplemental to, and not as superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Please see below for a reconciliation of historical non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Transaction-related expenses relate primarily to advisory fees and other costs recognized in respect of major corporate transactions, including the acquisition of businesses, and equity and debt transactions.

(2)

Restructuring expenses represent items qualifying for recognition as such under U.S. GAAP and include costs related to the closure of lines of business, facility closures and consolidations, fundamental organizational rationalizations and non-recurring employee severance related to such actions.

(3)

Inventory impairments and adjustments include the reversal of the adjustment to remeasure certain inventories on a Last-in-First-out ("LIFO") basis. The inflationary environment of the prior year period caused LIFO values to drop below First-in, First-out ("FIFO") values because LIFO measurement resulted in inflated costs being matched against sales while current, lower costs are retained in inventories.

(4)

On January 31, 2023, one of our customers filed a voluntary petition for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. In connection with the bankruptcy proceedings, we evaluated our potential risk and exposure relating to our outstanding pre-petition accounts receivable balance from the customer and have recorded an $11.4 million pre-tax charge to reflect our estimated recovery.

(1)

Transaction-related expenses related primarily to advisory fees and other costs recognized in respect of major corporate transactions, including the acquisition of businesses, and equity and debt transactions.

(2)

Restructuring expenses represent items qualifying for recognition as such under U.S. GAAP and included costs related to the closure of lines of business, facility closures and consolidations, fundamental organizational rationalizations and non-recurring employee severance related to such actions.

(3)

Inventory impairments and adjustments include the reversal of the adjustment to remeasure certain inventories on a Last-in-First-out ("LIFO") basis. The inflationary environment of the prior year period caused LIFO values to drop below First-in, First-out ("FIFO") values because LIFO measurement resulted in inflated costs being matched against sales while current, lower costs are retained in inventories.

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, one-time tax benefit of $12.3 million related to unrecognized tax benefits due to lapsed statute of limitations.

On January 31, 2023, one of our customers filed a voluntary petition for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. In connection with the bankruptcy proceedings, we evaluated our potential risk and exposure relating to our outstanding pre-petition accounts receivable balance from the customer and have recorded an $11.4 million pre-tax charge to reflect our estimated recovery. We continue to monitor the circumstances surrounding the bankruptcy in determining whether adjustments to this recovery estimate are necessary.
