Barnes Group Inc. (NYSE: B), a global provider of highly engineered products, differentiated industrial technologies, and innovative solutions, today reported financial results for the first quarter 2024.

"Barnes continues to advance our business transformation strategy with solid first-quarter results, additional long-term Aerospace agreements benefiting from our MB Aerospace acquisition, and the completed sale of the Associated Spring and Hanggi businesses in April," said Thomas J. Hook, President and Chief Executive Officer of Barnes. “Following the divestiture, an increasing majority of our earnings are driven by Aerospace, where we are investing to take full advantage of strong demand and attractive growth opportunities. And we continue to integrate, consolidate, and rationalize our Industrial business to further optimize our portfolio for long-term profitable growth. Our comprehensive strategic review is ongoing, and we remain committed to reshaping and positioning Barnes to maximize value for our shareholders. We look forward to sharing our ongoing progress."

First Quarter 2024 Highlights

Sales of $431 million were up 28%, supported by organic growth(1) of 4% and acquisition-related growth of approximately 25%. The foreign exchange impact on sales was neutral. Operating income of $39.7 million was up 70%, and operating margin of 9.2% was up 230 bps.

Adjusted operating income of $51.1 million was up 37% and adjusted operating margin of 11.9% was up 80 bps. Adjusted operating income excludes restructuring and transformation related charges of $4.1 million, divestiture transaction costs of $3.1 million, MB Aerospace short-term purchase accounting adjustments of $2.1 million, and shareholder advisory costs of $2.0 million. Adjusted EBITDA(2) was $80.4 million, up 38% from a year ago and adjusted EBITDA margin was 18.7%, up 130 bps.

Interest expense was $24.8 million, up from $5.3 million a year ago, primarily due to higher average borrowings from the purchase of MB Aerospace and a higher average interest rate given the recapitalization of the Company’s debt structure.

The effective tax rate for the quarter was 85% compared with 21% last year primarily driven by $6.8 million of tax expense relating to the sale of the Associated Spring and Hanggi businesses.

Net income was $1.9 million, or $0.04 per share, compared to $13.2 million, or $0.26 per share in the prior year. On an adjusted basis, net income per share of $0.38 was down 19% from $0.47. Adjusted net income per share excludes $0.06 of restructuring and transformation related charges, $0.02 of acquisition related costs, $0.20 of divestiture transaction costs, $0.03 of MB Aerospace short-term purchase accounting adjustments, and $0.03 of shareholder advisory costs.

Year-to-date cash used by operating activities was $2.3 million versus cash provided of $32.2 million a year ago. The decrease from the prior year was due to a use of cash for working capital, higher outflows for accrued liabilities, and an increase in other current assets. Capital expenditures of $12.8 million increased $1.9 million over the prior year, driven by investments related to the Company’s restructuring program and investments for growth. Free cash flow was negative $15.2 million.

Segment Performance

Aerospace

First quarter sales in the Aerospace segment were $221 million, up 89%. Organic sales increased 19% and sales related to the acquisition of MB Aerospace added 70%. Aerospace original equipment manufacturing (“OEM”) sales increased 85%, while aftermarket sales increased 94%. On an organic basis, OEM sales increased 16% and aftermarket sales increased 23%. Segment operating profit was $31.1 million, up 66%. Adjusted operating profit of $34.6 million was up 69%, while adjusted operating margin declined 180 bps to 15.7%. Adjusted operating profit excludes restructuring and transformation-related charges of $0.4 million, MB Aerospace short-term purchase accounting adjustments of $2.1 million, and allocated shareholder advisory costs of $1.0 million. Adjusted operating profit benefited from the contribution of higher organic sales volumes, inclusive of pricing, favorable aftermarket mix, and the contribution of MB Aerospace sales, partially offset by the amortization of long term acquired intangibles for the MB Aerospace acquisition and lower productivity. Aerospace adjusted EBITDA was $53.5 million, up 75%, and adjusted EBITDA margin was 24.2% versus 26.1% a year ago.

Aerospace OEM backlog ended the first quarter at $1.46 billion, up 19% sequentially from December 2023. The Company expects to convert approximately 45% of this backlog to revenue over the next 12 months.

Industrial

First quarter sales in the Industrial segment were $209 million, down 4% reported and organic. Operating profit was $8.6 million versus $4.5 million in the prior year. Adjusted operating profit was $16.4 million, down 1%, and adjusted operating margin was 7.8%, up 20 bps. Adjusted operating profit reflects lower organic sales volumes and unfavorable mix, partially offset by positive pricing and Barnes Transformation Office (BTO) cost initiatives. Adjusted operating profit excludes restructuring and transformation related charges of $3.7 million, divestiture-related costs of $3.1 million, and allocated shareholder advisory costs of $1.0 million. Adjusted EBITDA was $27.2 million, down 6% from a year ago, and adjusted EBITDA margin was 13.0%, down 30 bps.

Associated Spring and Hanggi Divestiture

On April 4, 2024, Barnes completed the sale of the Associated Spring & Hanggi businesses to One Equity Partners. This divestiture materially reduces the Company’s exposure to automotive component manufacturing and represents an important step in our ongoing strategy to integrate, consolidate and rationalize the Industrial business. Net cash proceeds of approximately $150 million will be used to reduce debt.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of March 31, 2024, the Company had $82 million in cash and $344 million available capacity under its revolving credit facility. The “Net Debt to EBITDA” ratio, as defined in our credit agreements, was 3.62 times, down slightly from 3.64 times at the end of 2023. Barnes remains committed to achieving a leverage ratio of 3.0x or lower by the end of 2024 and reaffirms its long-term leverage goal of 2.5x by 2025.

During the quarter, Barnes refinanced its Term Loan B facility, which resulted in a 60 bps decrease in the interest rate applied to outstanding borrowings. All other terms of the loan facility are essentially unchanged. The Company expects interest and tax savings from the refinancing of approximately $1.4 million in 2024 and $4.7 million in 2025.

Conference Call Information

Barnes will conduct a conference call with investors to discuss the first quarter 2024 results at 8:30 a.m. ET today, April 26, 2024. The public may access the conference through a live audio webcast available on the Investor Relations section of Barnes’ website at www.onebarnes.com.

The conference is also available by direct dial at (888) 510-2379 in the U.S. or (646) 960-0691 outside of the U.S.; Conference ID 1137078. Supplemental materials will be posted to the Investor Relations section of the Company's website prior to the conference call.

In addition, the call will be recorded and available for playback from 12:00 p.m. (ET) on Friday, April 26, 2024, until 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Friday, May 3, 2024, by dialing (609) 800-9909; Conference ID 1137078.

Notes:

(1) Organic sales growth represents the total reported sales increase within the Company’s ongoing business less the impact of foreign currency translation and acquisition and divestitures completed in the preceding twelve months.

(2) While Barnes reports financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company provides additional information with respect to a non-GAAP measure, “Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Income Tax, Depreciation and Amortization” (Adjusted EBITDA). With the acquisition of MB Aerospace, the largest transaction in Barnes’ history, the Company incurred related expenses, including acquired intangible assets and additional interest expense from the debt-funded acquisition. Accordingly, the Company uses Adjusted EBITDA, among other measures, to monitor our business performance. While EBITDA is not a U.S. GAAP measure, nor is it a substitute for a U.S. GAAP measure, we believe it provides helpful information to investors in understanding the ongoing operating performance of the Company. Investors should consider non-GAAP measures in addition to, not as a substitute for, or as superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Tables reconciling non-GAAP to GAAP financial measures, including forward looking outlook information, are presented at the end of this press release.

Notes:
(1) The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. The Company believes that the free cash flow metric is useful to investors and management as a measure of cash generated by business operations that can be used to invest in future growth, pay dividends, repurchase stock and reduce debt. This metric can also be used to evaluate the Company's ability to generate cash flow from business operations and the impact that this cash flow has on the Company's liquidity.

Notes:
(1) The Company has excluded the following from its "as adjusted" financial measurements for 2024: 1) charges related to restructuring/reduction in force actions at certain businesses and transformation costs (consulting/professional fees related to business and portfolio transformation initiatives), 2) divestiture transaction costs related to the divestiture of the Associated Spring™ and Hänggi™ businesses, including $3.1M reflected within operating profit, $1.4M reflected within other expense, net and a $6.8M charge reflected within income taxes, 3) shareholder advisory costs, 4) short-term purchase accounting adjustments related to its MB Aerospace acquisition, and 5) acquisition costs related to the acquisition of MB Aerospace, including $1.6M reflected within interest expense. The Company has excluded charges related to restructuring/reduction in force actions at certain businesses and business transformation costs (consulting fees related to transformation initiatives) from its "as adjusted" financial measurements for 2023. The tax effects of the restructuring related actions and acquisition related actions were calculated based on the respective tax jurisdictions and ranged from approximately 15% to approximately 30%. Management believes that these adjustments provide the Company and its investors with an indication of our baseline performance excluding items that are not considered to be reflective of our ongoing results. Management does not intend results excluding the adjustments to represent results as defined by GAAP, and the reader should not consider it as an alternative measurement calculated in accordance with GAAP, or as an indicator of the Company's performance. Accordingly, the measurements have limitations depending on their use.

Notes:
(1) "Other" includes intersegment sales and items that are included within Other expense (income), net that are not allocated to the Company's reportable business segments.

(2) Depreciation expense in 2024 includes $0.7 million of accelerated depreciation charges related to restructuring actions. Depreciation in 2023 includes $1.5 million of similar accelerated depreciation charges.

(3) Amortization expense in 2024 includes $0.6 million of short-term purchase accounting adjustments related to backlog amortization, attributed to the acquisition of MB Aerospace.

(4) The Company defines EBITDA as net income plus interest expense, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization which the Company incurs in the normal course of business; in addition to these adjustments, the Company also excludes the impact of its "as adjusted items" above ("Adjusted EBITDA"). The Company does not intend EBITDA nor Adjusted EBITDA to represent cash flows from operations as defined by GAAP, and the reader should not consider it as an alternative to net income, net cash provided by operating activities or any other items calculated in accordance with GAAP, or as an indicator of the Company's operating performance. Accordingly, the measurements have limitations depending on their use.
