Modine Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2024 Results, Raises Full-Year Earnings Guidance


Data center growth and benefits from 80/20 initiatives drove strong second quarter results, leading to second consecutive upward revision to full-year earnings outlook

RACINE, Wis., Nov. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Modine (NYSE: MOD), a diversified global leader in thermal management technology and solutions, today reported financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2023.

Second Quarter Highlights:

Revised Fiscal 2024 Outlook:

"Our second quarter results were once again ahead of our expectations, with strong revenue growth driven by data center sales, benefits from 80/20 initiatives, and favorable currency impacts," said Modine President and Chief Executive Officer, Neil D. Brinker. "Our data center sales more than doubled compared to the prior year for the second consecutive quarter, supported by strong demand from both hyperscale and colocation customers.  We also are pleased with the progress being made by the Performance Technologies segment, where 80/20 actions are yielding significant early benefits. These improvements are resulting in significant increases in gross margin and adjusted EBITDA margin, which grew by 520 basis points and 430 basis points, respectively."

Financial Results

Net sales increased 7 percent in the second quarter to $620.5 million, compared with $578.8 million in the prior year. On a constant currency basis, sales increased 5 percent. The increase was driven by improvements in both the Climate Solutions and Performance Technologies segments.  

Gross profit increased 40 percent in the second quarter to $135.1 million and gross margin improved by 520 basis points to 21.8 percent, primarily due to the favorable impact of higher sales.

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses increased $10.1 million to $68.9 million in the second quarter. This increase was primarily driven by higher compensation-related expenses, including higher incentive compensation driven by improved financial results, higher product development costs, and higher professional fees.

Operating income in the second quarter was $65.7 million, compared to $36.8 million in the prior year. The increase was driven by higher gross profit as compared to the prior year. During the second quarter of fiscal 2024, the Company recorded $0.5 million of restructuring expenses and $1.0 million of environmental charges. During the second quarter of fiscal 2023, the Company recorded $0.6 million of restructuring expenses and $0.3 million of environmental charges. Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes restructuring expenses, environmental charges, and depreciation and amortization expense, was $81.2 million, an increase of $30.1 million, or 59 percent, compared with $51.1 million in the prior year. 

Earnings per share was $0.87 in the second quarter, compared with $0.46 in the second quarter of the prior year. Adjusted earnings per share was $0.89 in the second quarter, compared with adjusted earnings per share of $0.48 in the second quarter of the prior year. These improvements were primarily driven by higher gross profit on higher sales.

Second Quarter Segment Review

Balance Sheet & Liquidity

Net cash provided by operating activities for the six months ended September 30, 2023, was $110.8 million, an increase of $54.7 million compared to the prior year. Free cash flow for the six months ended September 30, 2023, was $84.6 million, an increase of $51.5 million from the prior year. This increase was primarily due to the favorable impact of higher earnings, partially offset by unfavorable net changes in working capital as compared with the prior year. Cash payments for restructuring activities, environmental costs, and certain other items during the six months ended September 30, 2023, totaled $7.6 million.

Total debt was $342.6 million as of September 30, 2023. Cash and cash equivalents on September 30, 2023, were $120.2 million. Net debt was $222.4 million as of September 30, 2023, a decrease of $63.2 million from the end of fiscal 2023.

Outlook

"Our second quarter performance was stronger than expected, so we are once again raising our full-year earnings guidance," added Brinker. "Volumes in our data center business have exceeded our expectations, but we are maintaining a cautious outlook based on current economic conditions and trends in our other end markets.  As a result, we are confirming our second half top-line outlook, and remain confident in our ability to achieve our near-term profitability goals. Looking longer-term, our business transformation remains in its early stages and we are either on track or ahead of schedule as we work toward our financial goals."

Based on current exchange rates and market outlook, Modine provides its revised outlook for fiscal 2024:

Non-GAAP Financial Disclosures

Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted earnings per share, net debt, free cash flow, and constant currency (which are defined below) as used in this press release are not measures that are defined in generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). These non-GAAP measures are used by management as performance measures to evaluate the Company's overall financial performance and liquidity. These measures are not, and should not be viewed as, substitutes for the applicable GAAP measures, and may be different from similarly-titled measures used by other companies.

Definition ? Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin

The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as net earnings excluding interest expense, the provision or benefit for income taxes, depreciation and amortization expenses, other income and expense, restructuring expenses, impairment charges and certain other gains or charges. Adjusted EBITDA margin represents adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net sales. The Company believes that adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin provide relevant measures of profitability and earnings power. The Company views these financial metrics as being useful in assessing operating performance from period to period by excluding certain items that it believes are not representative of its core business. Adjusted EBITDA, when calculated for the business segments, is defined as GAAP operating income excluding depreciation and amortization expenses, restructuring expenses, impairment charges, and certain other gains or charges. 

Definition ? Adjusted earnings per share

Diluted earnings per share plus restructuring expenses, impairment charges, and excluding changes in income tax valuation allowances and certain other gains or charges. Adjusted earnings per share is an overall performance measure, not including non-cash impairment charges, costs associated with restructuring activities and certain other gains or charges.

Definition ? Net debt

The sum of debt due within one year and long-term debt, less cash and cash equivalents. Net debt is an indicator of the Company's debt position after considering on-hand cash balances.

Definition ? Free cash flow

Free cash flow represents net cash provided by operating activities less expenditures for property, plant and equipment. Free cash flow presents cash generated from operations during the period that is available for strategic capital decisions.

Definition ? Constant currency

Constant currency translates financial data from foreign operations for a period into U.S. dollars using the same foreign currency exchange rates as those used to translate financial data for the prior period. This measure provides a more consistent indication of our performance, without the effects of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.

Forward-looking non-GAAP financial measure

The Company's fiscal 2024 guidance includes adjusted EBITDA, as defined above, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. The full-year fiscal 2024 guidance for adjusted EBITDA is based upon the Company's estimates for interest expense of approximately $23 to $25 million, a provision for income taxes of approximately $49 to $55 million, and depreciation and amortization expense of approximately $56 to $60 million. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes certain cash and non-cash expenses or gains. These expenses and gains may be significant and include items such as restructuring expenses (including severance costs and plant consolidation and relocation expenses), impairment charges and certain other items. These expenses for the first six months of fiscal 2024 are presented on page 9. Estimates of these expenses and gains for the remainder of fiscal 2024 are not available due to the low visibility and unpredictability of these items.
