Management Comments  

“Our first-quarter results were highlighted by record-level quarterly sales of $512 million, 7.9% Organic Sales Growth, and a 150 basis point sequential increase in Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA margin as the Altra team once again did an incredible job capitalizing on broad-based market demand while effectively managing challenging supply chain dynamics,” said Carl Christenson, Altra’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “In the first quarter, due to higher sales and investments in inventory to better serve our customers, working capital increased significantly. We also increased our investments in capital expenditures for growth opportunities. We expect cash flow from operations to return to more normalized levels in the back half of the year.

“We were very pleased to see the benefits of our pricing initiatives flow through to the bottom line at a higher rate than expected with sequential margin expansion in the first quarter. In addition, we expect to further close the price-cost gap through the balance of the year. We also continued to experience robust incoming order rates to end the quarter with a book-to-bill ratio of 115% and very strong backlog, which continues to bode well for our sales prospects through the remainder of 2022.

“Since the start of the year, we have made excellent progress with our portfolio management priorities, including the integration of Nook Industries, which was accretive to first-quarter earnings in line with expectations, and we are on track to achieve our targeted synergies. We also completed the sale of the Jacobs Vehicle Systems ("JVS") business, which removes a non-core, cyclical business from our portfolio. Moreover, as previously announced, based on our reduced leverage and our confidence in our ability to generate cash, we increased our dividend from $0.08 to $0.09 – and reintroduced a share repurchase program.

Business Outlook

“Looking ahead, we remain focused on executing on our strategy to optimize Altra’s position as a premier industrial company and deliver strong and sustainable returns for shareholders. As we outlined in Altra’s 2022 Investor Day presentation set forth on the Investor Relations portion of Altra's website www.altramotion.com, the objectives of our strategy include leveraging our technology differentiation and proven Altra Business System tools in strong secular markets to achieve 3% to 5% annual organic growth, actively managing the portfolio through disciplined M&A to drive further upside, delivering 300 basis points of margin expansion and free cash flow conversion greater than 100% by 2024.

“Today, we are resetting our 2022 guidance to reflect the sale of JVS and the increase in working capital to support our ongoing efforts to manage market demand. We are also raising our 2022 guidance for our ongoing businesses to reflect very strong underlying demand. Notably, we expect to keep earnings consistent compared to the prior year, despite a $194 million revenue reset related to the JVS divestiture. In addition, on a pro forma basis, we expect to deliver double digit Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA* growth in 2022 – a strong demonstration of the underlying strength of our transformed portfolio and the power of the Altra Business System.”

*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. Our industry peers may provide similar supplemental non-GAAP information with respect to one or more of these measures, although they may not use the same or comparable terminology and may not make identical adjustments. 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.
