Management Reaffirms Full-Year Outlook

RICHMOND, Va., April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Brink's Company (NYSE: BCO), a global leader in security-related services, today reported first-quarter earnings.

First-Quarter Highlights

  • Segment profit down 53% (30% organic decline), margin 3.4% vs. 7.5%
  • International profit down 45% (20% organic decline), margin 4.8% vs. 9.3%
  • North America margin: (1%) vs. 2.5%

Non-GAAP:

  • Revenue up 4% (6% organic growth), EPS $.35 vs. $.67

  • International profit down 25% (21% organic decline), margin 6.8% vs. 9.6%

Other:

  • GAAP and non-GAAP results include a charge of $19 million ($.24 per share) related to a robbery in Belgium (see "Recent Events" on page 4).  This charge was allocated to our two segments (North America and International), consistent with other global expenses
  • $13 million ($.17 per share) write-down of net monetary assets in Venezuela related to currency devaluation excluded from non-GAAP results
  • Negative currency impact: $24 million on revenue (GAAP and non-GAAP); $17 million on GAAP profit, $3 million on non-GAAP profit

Tom Schievelbein, chairman, president and chief executive officer, said: "First-quarter results from international operations exceeded our initial projections and enabled us to overcome a $19 million charge related to a robbery in Belgium and continued weakness in North America to maintain our full-year outlook.  We expect our segment margin rate to be between 6% and 6.5% with continued strength in international operations and challenges in North America."

(a)  

Includes income and expense not allocated to segments.

(b)   

Includes operating results and gains/losses on acquisitions, sales and exits of businesses.  Also includes impairment charges related to businesses that we

expect to dispose of in the near term.

(c)   

Revenue and Segment Operating Profit:  The "Currency" amount in the table is the summation of the monthly currency changes, plus (minus) the U.S. dollar amount of remeasurement currency gains (losses) of bolivar fuerte-denominated net monetary assets recorded under highly inflationary accounting rules related to the Venezuelan operations.  The monthly currency change is equal to the Revenue or Operating Profit for the month in local currency, on a country-by-country basis, multiplied by the difference in rates used to translate the current period amounts to U.S. dollars versus the translation rates used in the year-ago month.  The functional currency in Venezuela is the U.S. dollar under highly inflationary accounting rules.  Remeasurement gains and losses under these rules are recorded in U.S. dollars but these gains and losses are not recorded in local currency.  Local currency Revenue and Operating Profit used in the calculation of monthly currency change for Venezuela have been derived from the U.S. dollar results of the Venezuelan operations under U.S. GAAP (excluding remeasurement gains and losses) using current period currency exchange rates.



Amounts may not add due to rounding.

Non-Segment Expenses
Non-segment expenses declined from $24 million to $17 million due to lower retirement plan expenses ($4 million) and a reduction in benefits costs ($2 million).  On a non-GAAP basis, these expenses decreased from $10 million to $8 million due to the reduction in benefits costs.

Capital Expenditures and Capital Leases
Brink's acquired $34 million of fixed assets in the first quarter of 2013 versus $39 million in the year-ago quarter.  For the full year, the company expects fixed asset acquisitions to remain relatively flat at $205 million.

Income Taxes 
On a GAAP basis, the first-quarter tax expense was $5 million (effective rate of 46%) versus $17 million (effective rate of 38%) in 2012. This year's higher rate is primarily due to a nondeductible remeasurement charge resulting from the Venezuela devaluation recorded in the first quarter, as well as additional devaluation amounts forecasted for 2013.  The effective GAAP tax rate for 2013 is expected to be between 49% and 52%.  Non-GAAP earnings for the first quarter reflect an effective tax rate of 37.5%, which is the midpoint of the estimated non-GAAP full-year range of 36% to 39%.  Non-GAAP results exclude the aforementioned nondeductible remeasurement charge.

Recent Events
On February 18, an armed gang attacked a Swiss-bound plane at Zaventum Airport in Brussels, Belgium, and stole an unconfirmed amount of diamonds, a portion of which was being shipped by Brink's. 

The total loss exposure for Brink's was approximately $19 million ($.24 per share after taxes).  Brink's reimbursed customers for all confirmed losses within 48 hours of the robbery.  On February 20, management said the robbery was not expected to have a material impact on the full-year profit outlook it provided on February 1.  Today, Brink's reaffirmed its full-year outlook, which calls for a segment profit margin between 6% and 6.5% on organic revenue growth of 5% to 8%. 

Brink's is working with the authorities in connection with this incident and does not expect to provide additional details on the robbery.

Conference Call
Brink's will host a conference call on April 25 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time to review first-quarter results.  Interested parties can listen by calling (800) 860-2442 (domestic), (412) 858-4600 (international) and (866) 605-3852 in Canada, or via live webcast at www.Brinks.com.  Please call in at least five minutes prior to the start of the call.  A replay will be available through May 9, 2013, by calling (877) 344-7529 (domestic) or + (412) 317-0088 (international).  The conference account number is 10027621.  A webcast replay will also be available at www.Brinks.com.

Non-GAAP Results
Non-GAAP results described in this earnings release are financial measures that are not required by or presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP").  The purpose of the non-GAAP results is to report financial information without certain income and expense items and adjust the quarterly non-GAAP tax rates so that the non-GAAP tax rate in each of the quarters is equal to the full-year non-GAAP tax rate.   For 2013, a forecasted full-year tax rate is used.  The full year non-GAAP tax rate in both years excludes certain pretax and tax income and expense amounts.  The non-GAAP information provides information to assist comparability and estimates of future performance.  Brink's believes these measures are helpful in assessing operations and estimating future results and enable period-to-period comparability of financial performance.  In addition, Brink's believes the measures will help investors assess the ongoing operations.  Non-GAAP results should not be considered as an alternative to revenue, income or earnings per share amounts determined in accordance with GAAP and should be read in conjunction with their GAAP counterparts.

Discontinued operations include cash-in-transit operations in Germany and Poland, and guarding operations in France and Morocco. Revenues from these European operations were $18.2 million in the three months ended March 31, 2013 and $26.1 million in the three months ended March 31, 2012. No interest expense was included in discontinued operations in the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012.

(b)

Loss from operations includes $15.3 million of accrued severance expenses which will be required to be paid to terminate certain employees of the German operations after the sale of the business is completed. We intend to contribute a portion of the cost to fund the severance payments to the business prior to the execution of the sales transaction.

(a)   

To eliminate results of additional European operations we intend to exit in 2013.  Operations do not currently meet requirements to be classified as discontinued operations.

(b)   

To eliminate:


  • Gains related to the sale of investments in mutual fund securities ($1.9 million in the first quarter and $0.5 million in the third quarter).  Proceeds from the sales were used to fund the settlement of pension obligations related to our former chief executive officer and chief administrative officer.
  • Gains and losses related to business acquisitions and dispositions.  A $0.9 million gain was recognized in the second quarter and a $0.1 million loss was recognized in the third quarter.  In the fourth-quarter of 2012, tax expense included a benefit of $7.5 million related to a reduction in an income tax accrual established as part of the 2010 acquisition of subsidiaries in Mexico, and pretax income included a $2.1 million favorable adjustment to the local profit sharing accrual as a result of the change in tax expectation.
  • Third quarter gain on the sale of real estate in Venezuela ($7.2 million).
  • Selling costs related to certain operations expected to be sold in the near term and costs related to an acquisition completed in first quarter 2013.  A $0.8 million loss was recognized in the fourth quarter.

(c)   

To eliminate employee benefit settlement and acquisition-related severance losses (Mexico and Argentina).  Employee termination benefits in Mexico are accounted for under FASB ASC Topic 715, Compensation – Retirement Benefits.

(d)   

To eliminate expenses related to U.S. retirement plans.

(e)   

To eliminate tax benefit related to change in retiree health care funding strategy.

(f)    

To adjust effective income tax rate in the interim period to be equal to the full-year non-GAAP effective income tax rate.  The full-year non-GAAP effective tax rate for 2012 was 36.3%.

(a)    

To eliminate the change in the balance of customer obligations related to cash received and processed in certain of our secure Cash Management Services operations.  The title to this cash transfers to us for a short period of time.  The cash is generally credited to customers' accounts the following day and we do not consider it as available for general corporate purposes in the management of our liquidity and capital resources.

(b)    

To eliminate cash flows related to our discontinued operations.

 

Non-GAAP cash flows from operating activities is a supplemental financial measure that is not required by, or presented in accordance with GAAP. The purpose of the non-GAAP cash flows from operating activities is to report financial information excluding the impact of cash received and processed in certain of our secure Cash Management Service operations and without cash flows from discontinued operations.  Brink's believes these measures are helpful in assessing cash flows from operations, enable period-to-period comparability and are useful in predicting future operating cash flows. Non-GAAP cash flows from operating activities should not be considered as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP and should be read in conjunction with our consolidated statements of cash flows.

(a)  

Title to cash received and processed in certain of our secure Cash Management Services operations transfers to us for a short period of time.  The cash is generally credited to customers' accounts the following day and we do not consider it as available for general corporate purposes in the management of our liquidity and capital resources and in our computation of Net Debt.

 

Net Debt is a supplemental financial measure that is not required by, or presented in accordance with GAAP.  We use Net Debt as a measure of our financial leverage.  We believe that investors also may find Net Debt to be helpful in evaluating our financial leverage. Net Debt should not be considered as an alternative to Debt determined in accordance with GAAP and should be reviewed in conjunction with our consolidated balance sheets.  Set forth above is a reconciliation of Net Debt, a non-GAAP financial measure, to Debt, which is the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and reported in accordance with GAAP.  Net Debt excluding cash and debt in Venezuelan operations was $395 million at March 31, 2013, and $280 million at December 31, 2012.
