Management Comments   

“We turned in another excellent quarter as we capitalized on greater-than-expected demand strength, leveraged our market leadership to outperform in several businesses and drove significant improvements to the bottom line,” said Carl Christenson, Altra’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “All of our operating businesses exceeded expectations, with demand especially strong for Class 8 trucks in China, and in the medical and renewable energy markets. Our aggressive cost-reduction actions led to excellent margin performance, strong cash flow generation and effective debt reduction. I continue to be amazed by the resilience and dedication of our team as they maintained safe workplaces across the organization, delivered innovative products to customers, and focused on future growth opportunities, all while delivering these excellent results.  

“We recently passed the two-year anniversary of Altra’s transformative merger with four of Fortive Corporation’s Automation and Specialty (A&S) businesses and we are delighted by the success of our integration from both a cultural and business standpoint. The broad diversity of our end markets as a result of the merger has clearly helped mitigate the financial impact of the current economic environment. Now, we are executing on our strategic plans to drive organic growth across our end markets, capitalizing on our enhanced cash-generative business model and we are enthusiastic about the increasing pipeline of opportunities from cross-selling activities.

“We are confident about our future as we close out 2020, and have raised our annual revenue and EPS guidance. Additionally, as a result of our growing confidence in our end markets and our strong cash flow performance, Altra’s Board of Directors approved an increase to the quarterly dividend by 50% to six cents per share. Longer term, we are excited by Altra’s growth opportunities and are increasingly confident about Altra’s ability to thrive as a premier industrial company for the long term,” concluded Christenson.

Business Outlook

Altra is raising its guidance for revenue, GAAP EPS, non-GAAP EPS, non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP Adjusted Free Cash Flow. While it is difficult to predict the severity and duration of the pandemic, this guidance is management’s best estimate and practical assessment of the financial impact of COVID-19 to the Company’s business at this time.  

Altra is updating guidance for full year 2020 as follows:

  • Full-year 2020 sales in the range of $1,690 million to $1,710 million, up from prior guidance of $1,580 million to $1,640 million.
  • GAAP diluted EPS in the range of a loss of $0.55 to a loss of $0.46, compared to prior guidance of a loss of $1.16 to a loss of $0.94.
  • Non-GAAP diluted EPS in the range of $2.70 to $2.82, up from prior guidance of $2.05 to $2.30.*
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA in the range of $355.0 million to $370.0 million, up from prior guidance of $305.0 million to $330.0 million.*
  • Tax rate for the full year of approximately 20% to 21% (compared to prior guidance of 21% to 23%) before discrete items, capital expenditures in the range of $34 million to $40 million (compared to prior guidance of $40 to $45 million), and depreciation and amortization in the range of $125 million to $128 million (compared to prior guidance of $124 to $127 million).
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted Free cash flow in the range of $210 million to $225 million, up from prior guidance of $160 million to $200 million.*

* Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The non-GAAP financial measures used in this release are utilized by management in comparing our operating performance on a consistent basis. We believe that these financial measures are appropriate to enhance the overall understanding of our underlying operating performance trends compared to historical and prospective periods and our peers. We believe that these measures provide important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the Company's financial condition and results of operations as well as insight into the compliance with our debt covenants. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information calculated in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures presented above to our GAAP results has been provided in the financial tables included in this press release.

Forward-Looking Statements

All statements, other than statements of historical fact included in this release are forward-looking statements, as that term is defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements include, but are not limited to, any statement that may predict, forecast, indicate or imply future results, performance, achievements or events. Forward-looking statements can generally be identified by phrases such as “believes,” “expects,” “potential,” “continues,” “may,” “should,” “seeks,” “predicts,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “projects,” “estimates,” “plans,” “could,” “designed”, “should be,” and other similar expressions that denote expectations of future or conditional events rather than statements of fact. Forward-looking statements also may relate to strategies, plans and objectives for, and potential results of, future operations, financial results, financial condition, business prospects, growth strategy and liquidity, and are based upon financial data, market assumptions and management's current business plans and beliefs or current estimates of future results or trends available only as of the time the statements are made, which may become out of date or incomplete. Forward looking statements are inherently uncertain, and investors must recognize that events could differ significantly from our expectations. These statements include, but may not be limited to, the statements under “Business Outlook,” and statements regarding (a) strategic plans to drive organic growth across the Company’s end markets, (b) capitalizing on the Company’s cash-generative business model, (c) the pipeline of opportunities from cross-selling activities, (d) the Company’s future and growth opportunities when the global economy recovers, and (e) the Company’s belief in its ability to thrive as a premier industrial company.

related to restructuring and plant consolidations, (32) risks related to our acquisition of A&S, including (a) the possibility that we may be unable to achieve expected synergies and operating efficiencies in connection with the transaction within the expected time-frames or at all and to successfully integrate A&S, (b) expected or targeted future financial and operating performance and results, (c) operating costs, customer loss and business disruption (including, without limitation, difficulties in maintaining relationships with employees, customers, clients or suppliers) being greater than expected following the transaction, (d) our ability to retain key executives and employees, (e) slowdowns or downturns in economic conditions generally and in the markets in which the A&S
