KENOSHA, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 7, 2019-- Snap-on Incorporated (NYSE: SNA), a leading global innovator, manufacturer and marketer of tools, equipment, diagnostics, repair information and systems solutions for professional users performing critical tasks, today announced 2018 operating results for the fourth quarter and full year.

  • Net sales of $952.5 million in the quarter were down $22.1 million, or 2.3%, from 2017 levels, reflecting a $5.4 million, or 0.6%, organic sales decline and $17.1 million of unfavorable foreign currency translation, partially offset by $0.4 million of acquisition-related sales.
  • Operating earnings before financial services for the quarter were $182.1 million, or 19.1% of sales. This compared to $158.0 million, or 16.2% of sales, in the fourth quarter of 2017. The 2018 operating earnings before financial services included a $4.3 million benefit from the settlement of an employment-related litigation matter that was being appealed (the “legal settlement”); excluding the legal settlement, operating earnings before financial services, as adjusted, in the fourth quarter of 2018 were $177.8 million, or 18.7% of sales. The 2017 operating earnings before financial services included a $30.9 million charge for a patent-related litigation matter that is being appealed (the “legal charge”); excluding the legal charge, operating earnings before financial services, as adjusted, in the fourth quarter of 2017 were $188.9 million, or 19.4% of sales.
  • Financial services revenue of $82.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 increased $2.8 million from 2017 levels; financial services operating earnings of $56.1 million increased $1.7 million from $54.4 million last year.
  • Consolidated operating earnings in the quarter totaled $238.2 million, or 23.0% of revenues (net sales plus financial services revenue), which compared to $212.4 million, or 20.1% of revenues, in the fourth quarter of 2017. Excluding the legal settlement in 2018 and the legal charge in 2017, consolidated operating earnings, as adjusted, of $233.9 million, or 22.6% of revenues, compared to $243.3 million, or 23.1% of revenues, respectively.
  • The fourth quarter 2018 effective income tax rate of 22.0% compares to 33.0% in 2017. In 2017, the fourth quarter effective income tax rate was reduced by 120 basis points as a result of the legal charge and increased by 360 basis points as a result of a $7.0 million charge related to the implementation of new tax legislation in the U.S. (the “tax charge”). Excluding the legal and tax charges, the fourth quarter 2017 effective tax rate, as adjusted, was 30.6%.
  • Reported net earnings in the fourth quarter of 2018 were $175.0 million, or $3.09 per diluted share, compared to reported net earnings of $129.5 million, or $2.24 per diluted share, a year ago. Excluding the legal settlement in 2018, and the legal and tax charges in 2017, net earnings, as adjusted, were $171.8 million, or $3.03 per diluted share, in 2018, and $155.6 million, or $2.69 per diluted share, last year.
  • Full year net sales of $3,740.7 million increased $53.8 million, or 1.5%, from 2017 levels, reflecting a $19.3 million, or 0.5%, organic sales gain, $24.2 million of acquisition-related sales and $10.3 million of favorable foreign currency translation. Full year net earnings of $679.9 million, or $11.87 per diluted share, compared to net earnings of $557.7 million, or $9.52 per diluted share, last year. In 2018, excluding the first quarter net debt items related to the issuance and extinguishment of debt, the fourth quarter legal settlement and the full year $3.9 million tax charge related to newly issued guidance associated with U.S. tax legislation, net earnings, as adjusted, were $676.5 million, or $11.81 per diluted share. In 2017, excluding the third and fourth quarter legal charges and the fourth quarter tax charge, net earnings, as adjusted, were $593.1 million, or $10.12 per diluted share. The adjusted earnings per diluted share of $11.81 in 2018, increased 16.7% versus the prior year, as adjusted.

See “Non-GAAP Measures” below for a definition of, and further explanation about, organic sales and measures, as adjusted, excluding the legal settlement, net debt items, legal charges and tax charges.

At the beginning of fiscal 2018, Snap-on adopted ASU No. 2017-07, Compensation – Retirement Benefits (Topic 715) – Improving the Presentation of Net Periodic Pension Cost and Net Periodic Postretirement Benefit Cost. The ASU requires changes be applied retrospectively; as such, certain prior year amounts have been adjusted to reflect this adoption and conform to the 2018 presentation.

“We’re encouraged by the strengthening of our product lines and by our unique position with customers, serving as the underpinning of our overall earnings growth,” said Nick Pinchuk, Snap-on chairman and chief executive officer. “Despite near-term challenges in a variety of environments, we continue to see clear progress on a number of our runways for growth and improvement including: the Commercial & Industrial Group extending its penetration of critical industries; the building of our activity in emerging markets like India; and the continuing recovery in our U.S. van channel. We believe Snap-on’s value proposition of making work easier for serious professionals remains strong and effective in vehicle repair and our other end markets, and we believe we have abundant opportunity to further strengthen our position along our runways for growth and to engage our runways for improvement, the Snap-on Value Creation Processes, continuing our positive trajectory as we move through 2019 and beyond. Finally, our progress would not have been possible without the capability and commitment of our franchisees and associates, and I thank them for their contributions and for their dedication.”

Segment Results

Commercial & Industrial Group segment sales of $343.7 million in the quarter increased $2.0 million, or 0.6%, from 2017 levels, reflecting an $11.5 million, or 3.5%, organic sales gain and $0.4 million of acquisition-related sales, partially offset by $9.9 million of unfavorable foreign currency translation. The organic increase includes higher sales in the segment’s Asia Pacific operations and specialty tools business, as well as increased sales in the segment’s European-based hand tools business and higher sales to customers in critical industries.

Operating earnings of $50.8 million in the period decreased $0.5 million from 2017 levels, and the operating margin (operating earnings as a percentage of segment sales) of 14.8% declined 20 basis points from 15.0% a year ago.

Snap-on Tools Group segment sales of $407.4 million in the quarter decreased $1.8 million, or 0.4%, from 2017 levels, reflecting a $1.6 million, or 0.4%, organic sales increase, more than offset by $3.4 million of unfavorable foreign currency translation. The organic increase includes higher sales in the U.S. franchise operations, partially offset by a decrease in the segment’s international operations.

Operating earnings of $57.0 million in the period decreased $10.3 million from 2017 levels, and the operating margin of 14.0% declined 240 basis points from 16.4% last year.

Repair Systems & Information Group segment sales of $339.9 million in the quarter decreased $16.9 million, or 4.7%, from 2017 levels, reflecting a $12.2 million, or 3.5%, organic sales decline and $4.7 million of unfavorable foreign currency translation. The organic sales decrease reflects lower sales to OEM dealerships and reduced sales of undercar equipment.

Operating earnings of $87.4 million in the period decreased $2.8 million from 2017 levels, and the operating margin of 25.7% improved 40 basis points from 25.3% a year ago.

Financial Services operating earnings of $56.1 million on revenue of $82.7 million in the quarter compared to operating earnings of $54.4 million on revenue of $79.9 million a year ago. Originations of $267.1 million in the fourth quarter increased $2.1 million, or 0.8%, from 2017 levels.

Corporate expenses of $13.1 million in the quarter, including the $4.3 million benefit from the legal settlement, compared to $50.8 million last year; 2017 included the legal charge of $30.9 million.

Outlook

Snap-on expects to make continued progress in 2019 along its defined runways for coherent growth, leveraging capabilities already demonstrated in the automotive repair arena and developing and expanding its professional customer base, not only in automotive repair, but in adjacent markets, additional geographies and other areas, including extending in critical industries, where the cost and penalties for failure can be high. In pursuit of these initiatives, Snap-on expects that capital expenditures in 2019 will be in a range of $90 million to $100 million.

Snap-on currently anticipates that its full year 2019 effective income tax rate will be comparable to its full year 2018 effective tax rate of 24.0%.

Non-GAAP Measures

References in this document to “organic sales” refer to sales from continuing operations calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), adjusted to exclude acquisition-related sales and the impact of foreign currency translation. Management evaluates the company’s sales performance based on organic sales growth, which primarily reflects growth from the company’s existing businesses as a result of increased output, customer base and geographic expansion, new product development and/or pricing, and excludes sales contributions from acquired operations the company did not own as of the comparable prior-year reporting period. The company’s organic sales disclosures also exclude the effects of foreign currency translation as foreign currency translation is subject to volatility that can obscure underlying business trends. Management believes that the non-GAAP financial measure of organic sales is meaningful to investors as it provides them with useful information to aid in identifying underlying growth trends in our businesses and facilitating comparisons of our sales performance with prior periods.

For the fourth quarter and full year 2018, the company is including operating earnings before financial services, consolidated operating earnings, net earnings and diluted earnings per share, all as adjusted to exclude the impact of a $4.3 million benefit ($3.2 million after tax) from the legal settlement. In addition, for the full year 2018, the company is including net earnings and diluted earnings per share, both as adjusted to exclude a net gain of $5.5 million ($4.1 million after tax) associated with a treasury lock settlement gain of $13.3 million related to the issuance of debt, partially offset by a $7.8 million expense related to the early extinguishment of debt, both of which were incurred in the three months ended March 31, 2018. Finally, for the full year 2018, the company is including net earnings, diluted earnings per share and its effective tax rate, all as adjusted to exclude the impact of $3.9 million of charges related to the newly issued guidance associated with the U.S. tax legislation.

For the fourth quarter and full year 2017, the company is including operating earnings before financial services, consolidated operating earnings, net earnings, diluted earnings per share and its effective tax rate, all as adjusted to exclude the impact of a $30.9 million charge ($19.1 million after tax) in the fourth quarter of 2017 for a patent-related litigation matter that is being appealed and a $45.9 million charge ($28.4 million after tax) for the full year 2017 related to judgments in litigation matters, as noted above, and included the matter settled in the fourth quarter of 2018. For the fourth quarter and full year 2017, the company is also including net earnings, diluted earnings per share and its effective tax rate, all as adjusted to exclude the impact of a $7.0 million charge related to the implementation of tax legislation.

Management believes that these are unusual events and therefore the non-GAAP financial measures adjusted to exclude them provide more meaningful year-over-year comparisons of the company’s 2018 operating performance. For a reconciliation of the adjusted metrics, see “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below.

Non-GAAP Supplemental Data

The following non-GAAP supplemental data is presented for informational purposes to provide readers with insight into the information used by management for assessing the operating performance of Snap-on Incorporated's ("Snap-on") non-financial services ("Operations") and "Financial Services" businesses.

The supplemental Operations data reflects the results of operations and financial position of Snap-on's tools, diagnostic and equipment products, software and other non-financial services operations with Financial Services on the equity method. The supplemental Financial Services data reflects the results of operations and financial position of Snap-on's U.S. and international financial services operations. The financing needs of Financial Services are met through intersegment borrowings and cash generated from Operations; Financial Services is charged interest expense on intersegment borrowings at market rates. Income taxes are charged to Financial Services on the basis of the specific tax attributes generated by the U.S. and international financial services businesses. Transactions between the Operations and Financial Services businesses were eliminated to arrive at the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
