PITTSBURGH, Jan. 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Matthews International Corporation (NASDAQ GSM: MATW) today announced financial results for its first quarter of fiscal 2023.

In discussing the results for the Company’s fiscal 2023 first quarter, Joseph C. Bartolacci, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated:

“We had a strong start to fiscal 2023. Order rates in our Industrial Technologies segment have grown significantly. Total orders for the segment were almost $270 million for the quarter, including the recently announced orders received for our energy storage solutions business.

“On a consolidated basis for the three months ended December 31, 2022, we reported another consecutive quarter of year-over-year sales growth, primarily resulting from a 47% increase in sales for our Industrial Technologies segment.

“The continued strength in orders for our energy storage solutions business reaffirms our commitment to the energy space. Our goal is to be the premier, global supplier of highly engineered, clean energy equipment with industry-leading customers across renewable energy services, transportation, and infrastructure. We are confident that the global and growing shift to electrification, coupled with our recent acquisitions, will continue to drive growth for our Company.

“Memorialization sales were relatively steady for the current quarter as the segment reported only a modest decline despite lower death rates compared to a year ago. Consistent with last quarter, U.S. death rates have substantially normalized from higher pandemic levels, impacting unit volumes for caskets and bronze memorials. However, these impacts were largely mitigated by improved pricing and higher granite memorial products and U.S. cremation equipment sales.

“For our SGK Brand Solutions segment, currency rate changes compared to a year ago, particularly the Euro and British Pound, represented over half of the reported decline in sales, while continued challenges in Europe also negatively impacted sales and profitability. However, we expect the cost reduction actions initiated last quarter will begin to produce improved margins.”

Note: See the attached tables for additional important disclosures regarding Matthews’ use of non-GAAP measures as well as reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to corresponding GAAP measures. Organic sales represent changes in sales excluding the impact of acquisitions, divestitures, and changes in foreign currency exchange rates.

Consolidated sales for the quarter ended December 31, 2022 were $449.2 million, compared to $438.6 million for the same quarter a year ago, representing an increase of $10.6 million, or 2.4%. On a constant currency basis, consolidated sales increased $27.7 million, or 6.3%, from a year ago. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates were estimated to have an unfavorable impact of $17.0 million on fiscal 2023 first quarter sales compared to the prior year.

Net income attributable to the Company for the quarter ended December 31, 2022 was $3.7 million, or $0.12 per share, compared to loss of $19.8 million, or $0.62 per share in the prior year. The first quarter last year included a charge in connection with the termination and settlement of the Company’s principal U.S. pension plan. On a non-GAAP adjusted basis, earnings for the fiscal 2023 first quarter were $0.53 per share, compared to $0.74 per share a year ago, primarily reflecting lower adjusted EBITDA (net income before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and other adjustments) and higher interest expense. Adjusted EBITDA for the fiscal 2023 first quarter was $49.3 million. On a constant currency basis, adjusted EBITDA was $50.9 million for the current quarter, compared to $53.3 million a year ago, primarily reflecting lower adjusted EBITDA for the Memorialization and SGK Brand Solutions segments offset partially by growth in the Industrial Technologies segment.

Outlook

Mr. Bartolacci further stated: “Based on our orders received in the first quarter and continued robust activity in all of our Industrial Technologies products and services, we expect to report another strong year in this segment. Timing of new projects will influence our results as deliveries for portions of the orders will extend up to 18 months. We expect Memorialization operating results to remain relatively steady compared to last year, primarily reflecting the level of our cremation-related products sales and expected recovery in the segment’s margins. Lastly, for our SGK Brand Solutions segment, year-over-year currency rate changes are expected to present a challenge for the near term. However, our cost reduction actions should improve margins in this business.

“At the present time, we are maintaining our previously reported guidance for fiscal 2023 (adjusted EBITDA range of $215 million to $235 million). Importantly, as we further assess expected timing of deliveries for the recent energy storage solutions orders, our confidence level within this range should improve. We continue, however, to express caution as global economic conditions remain uncertain.

“Lastly, as we anticipated, our debt levels have recently increased primarily as a result of investments in our recent acquisitions and the energy storage solutions business. Based on the expected performance and related cash flows of this business, we expect these levels to decline as fiscal 2023 progresses.”

Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Included in this report are measures of financial performance that are not defined by GAAP, including, without limitation, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and EPS, constant currency sales, constant currency adjusted EBITDA, net debt and net debt leverage ratio. The Company defines net debt leverage ratio as outstanding debt (net of cash) relative to adjusted EBITDA. The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures to assist in comparing its performance on a consistent basis for purposes of business decision-making by removing the impact of certain items that management believes do not directly reflect the Company’s core operations including acquisition costs, ERP integration costs, strategic initiative and other charges (which includes non-recurring charges related to operational initiatives and exit activities), stock-based compensation and the non-service portion of pension and postretirement expense. Constant currency sales and constant currency adjusted EBITDA remove the impact of changes due to foreign exchange translation rates. To calculate sales and adjusted EBITDA on a constant currency basis, amounts for periods in the current fiscal year are translated into U.S. dollars using exchange rates applicable to the comparable periods of the prior fiscal year. Management believes that presenting non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors because it (i) provides investors with meaningful supplemental information regarding financial performance by excluding certain items that management believes do not directly reflect the Company's core operations, (ii) permits investors to view performance using the same tools that management uses to budget, forecast, make operating and strategic decisions, and evaluate historical performance, and (iii) otherwise provides supplemental information that may be useful to investors in evaluating the Company’s results. The Company's calculations of its non-GAAP financial measures, however, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The Company believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the corresponding GAAP financial measures and the reconciliations to those measures, provided herein, provide investors with an additional understanding of the factors and trends affecting the Company’s business that could not be obtained absent these disclosures.

(1) Represents fees for receivables sold under the Company's RPA agreement.

(2) Includes certain non-recurring costs associated with recent acquisition activities.

(3) Includes certain non-recurring costs associated with productivity and cost-reduction initiatives intended to result in improved operating performance, profitability and working capital levels, costs associated with global ERP system integration efforts, and asset write-downs associated with certain operations in Russia, net of recoveries.

(4) Includes certain non-recurring direct incremental costs (such as costs for purchases of computer peripherals and devices to facilitate working-from-home, additional personal protective equipment and cleaning supplies and services, etc.) incurred in response to COVID-19. This amount does not include the impact of any lost sales or underutilization due to COVID-19.

(5) Represents exchange losses associated with highly inflationary accounting related to the Company's Turkish subsidiaries.

(6) Represents items associated with the termination of the Company's DB Plan, supplemental retirement plan and the defined benefit portion of the officers retirement restoration plan.

(7) Non-service pension and postretirement expense includes interest cost, expected return on plan assets, amortization of actuarial gains and losses, curtailment gains and losses, and settlement gains and losses. These benefit cost components are excluded from adjusted EBITDA since they are primarily influenced by external market conditions that impact investment returns and interest (discount) rates. Curtailment gains and losses and settlement gains and losses are excluded from adjusted EBITDA since they generally result from certain non-recurring events, such as plan amendments to modify future benefits or settlements of plan obligations. The service cost and prior service cost components of pension and postretirement expense are included in the calculation of adjusted EBITDA, since they are considered to be a better reflection of the ongoing service-related costs of providing these benefits. Please note that GAAP pension and postretirement expense or the adjustment above are not necessarily indicative of the current or future cash flow requirements related to these employee benefit plans.

* Depreciation and amortization was $5,574 and $5,810 for the Memorialization segment, $5,853 and $2,653 for the Industrial Technologies segment, $11,060 and $23,725 for the SGK Brand Solutions segment, and $1,242 and $1,313 for Corporate and Non-Operating, for the three months ended December 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

** Acquisition costs, ERP integration costs, and strategic initiatives and other charges were $378 and $671 for the Memorialization segment, $937 and $32 for the Industrial Technologies segment, $521 and $1,229 for the SGK Brand Solutions segment, and $1,209 and $1,891 for Corporate and Non-Operating, for the three months ended December 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

*** Non-recurring/incremental COVID-19 costs were $464 for the Memorialization segment, $4 for the Industrial Technologies segment, $220 for the SGK Brand Solutions segment, and $2 for Corporate and Non-Operating, for the three months ended December 31, 2021.

Note: Adjustments to net income for non-GAAP reconciling items were calculated using an income tax rate of 22.1% for the three months ended December 31, 2022, and 24.7% for the three months ended December 31, 2021.

(1) Includes certain non-recurring costs associated with recent acquisition activities.

(2) Includes certain non-recurring costs associated with productivity and cost-reduction initiatives intended to result in improved operating performance, profitability and working capital levels, costs associated with global ERP system integration efforts, and asset write-downs associated with certain operations in Russia, net of recoveries.

(3) Includes certain non-recurring direct incremental costs (such as costs for purchases of computer peripherals and devices to facilitate working-from-home, additional personal protective equipment and cleaning supplies and services, etc.) incurred in response to COVID-19. This amount does not include the impact of any lost sales or underutilization due to COVID-19.

(4) Represents exchange losses associated with highly inflationary accounting related to the Company's Turkish subsidiaries.

(5) Represents items associated with the termination of the Company's DB Plan, supplemental retirement plan and the defined benefit portion of the officers retirement restoration plan.

(6) Non-service pension and postretirement expense includes interest cost, expected return on plan assets, amortization of actuarial gains and losses, curtailment gains and losses, and settlement gains and losses. These benefit cost components are excluded from adjusted EBITDA since they are primarily influenced by external market conditions that impact investment returns and interest (discount) rates. Curtailment gains and losses and settlement gains and losses are excluded from adjusted EBITDA since they generally result from certain non-recurring events, such as plan amendments to modify future benefits or settlements of plan obligations. The service cost and prior service cost components of pension and postretirement expense are included in the calculation of adjusted EBITDA, since they are considered to be a better reflection of the ongoing service-related costs of providing these benefits. Please note that GAAP pension and postretirement expense or the adjustment above are not necessarily indicative of the current or future cash flow requirements related to these employee benefit plans.
