Chart Industries Reports 2018 Second Quarter Results

Company Release - 7/19/2018 6:00 AM ET

ATLANTA, July 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chart Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:GTLS), a leading diversified global manufacturer of highly engineered equipment for the industrial gas, energy and biomedical industries, today reported results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.  Highlights include:

  • Orders of $360.3 million, a 12% sequential increase over the first quarter of 2018 and Chart’s sixth consecutive quarter of sequential growth.  Orders increased 43% over the second quarter of 2017, with 6% organic growth.
  • Booked $28 million order for Hudson Products (Energy & Chemicals) air cooled heat exchangers for a large LNG project.
  • Sales of $319.9 million, a sequential increase of 14% over the first quarter of 2018, and 34% over the second quarter of 2017, with 14% organic growth.
  • Reported EPS of $0.38 and adjusted EPS of $0.55, reflecting margin leverage resulting from completed restructuring actions and continued order and sales strength.
  • Increased full year revenue and EPS guidance range to $1.20 billion to $1.25 billion and $1.85 to $2.05 per diluted share, respectively.

Net income for the second quarter of 2018 was $12.3 million or $0.38 per diluted share.  Second quarter 2018 earnings would have been $0.55 per diluted share excluding $1.4 million of transaction-related and restructuring costs, $3.75 million of costs associated with the cryobiological aluminum tank recall, and $1.4 million of net severance costs associated with the departure of the former Chief Executive Officer.  This is a $0.32 adjusted EPS increase over the first quarter of 2018, and compares to net income for the second quarter of 2017 of $2.8 million, or $0.09 per diluted share.  Second quarter 2017 earnings would have been $0.21 per diluted share excluding $5.0 million of restructuring and $1.0 million of transaction-related costs.  Further details on the second quarter results and adjustments can be found in the attached exhibit to this press release.

The second quarter of 2018 was our sixth consecutive quarter of sequential order growth, with 12% growth over the first quarter of 2018, and sequential growth in orders in all of our three segments.  Orders increased 43%, or $107.7 million ($15.5 million excluding Hudson Products) above the second quarter of 2017.  Included in our second quarter of 2018 orders was a $28 million order in our Energy & Chemicals (E&C) segment for our Hudson Products air cooled heat exchangers on a large LNG project, as well as a $13 million order for equipment for a natural gas liquids fractionation project.  A portion of these orders will ship in 2018 and the remainder are expected to ship in 2019.  Additionally, we received a $12 million order in Distribution & Storage (D&S) for liquid hydrogen storage vessels to be used in the private space industry for launch operations.  Approximately 50% of this order will be recognized in 2018 revenue.  Orders in the United States, Europe and Asia increased sequentially and year over year, with Asian orders up 28% over the first quarter of 2018 and 18% over the second quarter of 2017.  Strength in Asian orders was driven by packaged gas applications as well as respiratory and cryobiological product lines.  LNG vehicle fueling demand continued to increase, and industrial CO2 activity is driving increased volumes of Bulk and MicroBulk product in the United States for our D&S segment, while natural gas processing in our E&C segment continued to be strong (up 9.8% sequentially over the first quarter of 2018 and up 47.2% from the second quarter of 2017).

Sales of $319.9 million for the second quarter of 2018 increased 14% over the first quarter of 2018.  All three segments’ sales increased over the first quarter of 2018 by at least 12%.  Compared to the second quarter of 2017, sales increased 34%, or 14% organically.  The year-over-year increase in revenue was driven by E&C increases in demand for equipment for both natural gas processing and industrial gas applications, D&S packaged gas volume, LNG vehicle tanks and increases in parts, repair and aftermarket as well as the release of the new portable oxygen concentrator in our BioMedical segment.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2018 was $84.5 million, or 26.4% of sales, compared to the first quarter’s gross profit as a percent of sales of 27.6% of sales.  The sequential decrease in gross margin as a percent of sales was driven by the $3.75 million of costs associated with the cryobiological aluminum tank recall for a 12-week period earlier this year.  Excluding the recall costs, gross margin as a percent of sales would have been sequentially higher than the first quarter of 2018. 

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses for the second quarter of 2018 were $55.3 million, inclusive of $0.8 million of transaction-related costs, $0.6 million of restructuring costs, and net costs of $1.4 million related to the departure of the previous CEO.  SG&A expenses for the first quarter of 2018 were $54.1 million, inclusive of $1.3 million of transaction-related costs, and $0.6 million of restructuring costs.

“Our second quarter results reflect the past three quarters’ order strength.  With the strength in packaged gas, order activity in Asia, and European LNG vehicle tank and trailer demand, combined with our right-sized cost structure, we expect to see the second half of 2018 at higher sales and earnings levels than the first half of the year,” said Jill Evanko, Chart’s President and CEO.  “The $28 million Hudson order received in the second quarter for a large LNG project is exciting for our Energy & Chemicals segment, as it further demonstrates the strategic value of the combination of Hudson and Chart.”

As we announced at the end of the first quarter of 2018, we are conducting a strategic review of the oxygen-related product lines within our BioMedical segment, including an evaluation of a possible divestiture of the businesses.  We are excluding from the review those portions of the BioMedical segment that utilize and align with our cryogenic technological expertise (Cryobiological).  The asset group does not meet the criteria to be held for sale, and therefore continues to be accounted and reported for as assets to be held and used.  There can be no assurance that this evaluation will result in any transaction being announced or consummated.  The Company will not disclose further developments during this process until our Board of Directors has approved a specific action or we have determined that further disclosure is appropriate.

SEGMENT HIGHLIGHTS

Second quarter 2018 orders in E&C were $122.5 million, inclusive of $92.2 million from Hudson Products, and sequentially an increase of 30.7% compared to the first quarter of 2018.  This is the fifth quarter in a row with E&C order levels above $60 million.  The natural gas market continues to be strong, and air cooled heat exchanger orders reflect project specific work that Hudson won in the quarter.  E&C segment sales of $100.8 million ($53.3 million excluding Hudson) were up 12% compared to the first quarter of 2018 and up organically 33.0% versus the second quarter of 2017.  E&C gross margin of $21.3 million, or 21.1% of sales, is an increase over the second quarter of 2017 gross margin of $5.4 million, or 13.3% gross margin as a percent of sales.  The improvement is driven by the addition of Hudson as well as the increased demand for natural gas and industrial gas equipment.

D&S orders of $174.0 million were the highest since the third quarter of 2013, and the sixth consecutive quarter of sequential order growth.  Six consecutive quarters of sequential growth is the longest sustained order trend since 2002 for the segment.  D&S sales increased $21.3 million to $157.4 million compared to the first quarter of 2018, and increased $19.8 million compared to the second quarter of 2017.  Sequential and year-over-year increases are driven by strength in United States packaged gas, and European standard tanks and trailers.  Gross margin as a percent of sales of 28.3% increased from 27.6% in the first quarter of 2018 and 25.7% in the second quarter of 2017, reflecting strong volume, improved cost structure, and activity in Europe, in particular LNG trailer strength.

Second quarter BioMedical orders of $63.8 million increased sequentially over the first quarter of 2018 by 11.9%, driven by a 29% increase in respiratory orders.  The successful launch of our new portable oxygen concentrator in the first quarter drove the second quarter order increase.  Second quarter BioMedical sales of $62.0 million increased from the first quarter of 2018 sales of $54.7 million driven by strength in both oxygen-related and cryobiological products.  Given order levels, similar levels of revenue are expected in the second half of the year, which is different than the fourth quarter seasonal decline historically found in the segment.  BioMedical gross margin as a percent of sales of 30.0% in the second quarter of 2018 is a decrease from the 36.9% gross margin as a percent of sales in the first quarter of 2018.  The driver of the decrease in gross margin was the $3.75 million of recall related expense, and mix in the respiratory product line. 

OUTLOOK

Our full year 2018 guidance includes the impact from the revenue recognition accounting standard change which was adopted effective January 1, 2018, and which we expect to be immaterial on a full year basis.  Sales guidance is expected to be in the range of $1.20 billion to $1.25 billion for the full year of 2018 compared to prior sales guidance of $1.15 to $1.20 billion.  We expect full year adjusted earnings per diluted share (non-GAAP) to be in the range of $1.85 to $2.05 per share, on approximately 32.0 million weighted average shares outstanding.  Our prior full year adjusted earnings per diluted share guidance was $1.75 to $2.00.  This excludes any restructuring costs and transaction-related costs, and assumes continued ownership of all assets for the entire calendar year, and as such is a non-GAAP measure.  We expect our effective tax rate, inclusive of benefits from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, to be approximately 27%, which is unchanged from our prior guidance.  In the second quarter of 2018, our effective tax rate was 27.6%, bringing the year to date rate to 27.3%.  We continue to expect our capital expenditures for 2018 will be in the range of $35 million to $45 million.

Adjusted earnings per diluted share is not a measure of financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to earnings per share in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  Management believes that adjusted earnings per share facilitates useful period-to-period comparisons of our financial results and this information is used by us in evaluating internal performance.  Our calculation of this non-GAAP measure may not be comparable to the calculations of similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
