ParkOhio Announces Increased Revenues and Earnings in the Third Quarter

Oct 31, 2012, 17:00 ET from Park-Ohio Holdings Corp.

CLEVELAND, Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Park-Ohio Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: PKOH) today announced results for its third quarter and nine-months ended September 30, 2012. 

THIRD QUARTER RESULTS

Net sales were $286.5 million for the third quarter of 2012, an increase of $43.0 million, or 18%, from net sales of $243.5 million for the third quarter of 2011.  ParkOhio reported net income of $10.7 million, or $.88 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012.  This compared to a net income of $2.9 million, or $.24 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2011, which included a restructuring and asset impairment charge of $5.4 million relating to the assets of a unit of the Assembly Components segment. The effect of the restructuring and asset impairment charge was $.45 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2011.

YEAR-TO-DATE RESULTS

Net sales were $858.3 million for the first nine months of 2012, an increase of $126.3 million, or 17%, from net sales of $732.0 million for the first nine months of 2011.  ParkOhio reported net income of $24.1 million, or $1.99 per diluted share, for the first nine months of 2012, which included the impact of a $13.0 million pre-tax litigation settlement charge, or $.69 per diluted share. This compared to net income of $10.5 million, or $.87 per diluted share, for the first nine months of 2011, which included debt extinguishment costs of $7.3 million resulting from the refinancing of the Company's senior subordinated notes and the amendment of its revolving credit facility and income taxes of $2.1 million resulting from the retirement of $26.2 million of its senior subordinated notes that were held by a foreign affiliate.  Also, during the third quarter of 2011, the Company recorded a restructuring and asset impairment charge of $5.4 million relating to the assets of a unit of the Assembly Components segment. The combined effect of the debt extinguishment costs, tax impact of the retirement of the senior subordinated notes and the restructuring and asset impairment charge was $1.23 per diluted share for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2011.

2012 REVENUE AND EARNINGS GUIDANCE UPDATE

We currently forecast our consolidated 2012 revenues to be approximately 18% greater than 2011 revenues.  We are also updating our earnings per diluted share forecast to be in the range of $2.45 to $2.55 per diluted share, which includes $.69 per diluted share for the unusual $13.0 million pre-tax litigation settlement charge in the second quarter of 2012.  In addition, we are forecasting EBITDA, as defined, to be approximately $94 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 which also includes the settlement charge as an expense in deriving EBITDA, as defined.  EBITDA, as defined, reflects earnings before interest expense, income taxes, and excludes depreciation, amortization, certain non-cash charges and corporate-level expenses as defined in the Company's revolving credit agreement. 

Edward F. Crawford, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are very proud of our performance during the third quarter of 2012 as we reported strong quarterly sales and record quarterly operating income.  While the global economic environment has created uncertainty regarding the fourth quarter, we are well-positioned to manage through adversity and to capitalize on market cycle volatility."

A conference call reviewing ParkOhio's third quarter results will be broadcast live over the Internet on Thursday, November 1, commencing at 10:00 am Eastern Time.  Simply log on to http://www.pkoh.com.

Note A - Our subsidiary, Ajax Tocco Magnethermic ("ATM"), was a party to a binding arbitration proceeding pending in South Africa with a customer. The arbitration involved a dispute over the design and installation of a melting furnace. The customer sought binding arbitration in September 2011 for breach of contract and sought compensatory damages in the amount of $37.0 million, as well as fees and expenses related to the arbitration. ATM counterclaimed in the arbitration, alleging breach of contract for non-payment of $2.7 million as well as fees and expenses related to the arbitration.

In June 2012, we entered into a settlement agreement with the customer pursuant to which we agreed to settle all claims subject to the arbitration proceeding by paying the customer $13.0 million in cash, which payment was made in June 2012.

Note B - EBITDA, as defined, reflects earnings before interest expense, income taxes, and excludes depreciation, amortization, certain non-cash charges and corporate-level expenses as defined in the Company's Revolving Credit Agreement. EBITDA is not a measure of performance under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities and other income or cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP or as a measure of profitability or liquidity. The Company presents EBITDA because management uses EBITDA to measure performance and as an indication of the Company's satisfaction of its Debt Service Ratio covenant in its Revolving Credit Agreement and because EBITDA is a measure used under the Company's revolving credit facility to determine whether the Company may incur additional debt under such facility. EBITDA as defined herein may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The following table reconciles net income to EBITDA, as defined:

Note A - On March 23, 2012, the Company completed the acquisition of Fluid Routing Solutions Holding Corp. ("FRS"), a leading manufacturer of automotive and industrial rubber and thermoplastic hose products and fuel filler and hydraulic fluid assemblies for the automotive and industrial industries. FRS will expand the Company's sales of assembled components.

During the second quarter, as a result of the FRS acquisition, the Company realigned its segments in order to better align its business with the underlying markets and customers that the Company serves. In so doing, we combined Aluminum Products, Rubber Products (previously included in the former Manufactured Products segment), and Delo Screw Products (previously included in the Supply Technologies segment) along with FRS to form the Assembly Components segment. The former Manufactured Products segment will now be referred to as Engineered Products. The results of operations of FRS from the date of the acquisition through June 30, 2012 are included in the Assembly Components segment. The business segment results for the prior year have been reclassified to reflect these changes.
