Joy Global Announces Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2015 Operating Results

Joy Global Inc. (NYSE: JOY), a worldwide leader in high-productivity mining solutions, today reported fourth quarter and fiscal 2015 results.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year Summary

  • Oversupplied commodity markets drove customer capital expenditures down approximately 18 percent year-over-year
  • Fourth quarter bookings of $617 million, down 21 percent; full year bookings of $2.7 billion, down 25 percent from a year ago
  • Fourth quarter impairment charges due to weak markets of $1.338 billion or $13.24 per diluted share
  • (Loss) Earnings per diluted share; fourth quarter $(13.43) compared to $1.31 in prior year, full year $(12.02) compared to $3.35 in prior year
  • Adjusted earnings per diluted share; fourth quarter $0.43 compared to $1.29 in prior year, full year $1.95 compared to $3.44 in the prior year
  • Strong cash from operations in the quarter of $187 million, up $122 million from a year ago and $355 million for the year, a decrease of $8 million from the prior year
  • Announced a reduction in the quarterly dividend to $0.01 per share, a rate which would reduce annual outlay by $75 million

Fourth Quarter and Full Year Operating Results

"During 2015, global commodity markets declined further as supply surpluses led to prices of most major commodities falling well over 25 percent which adversely impacted our bookings rate,” said Ted Doheny, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Despite the resulting significant drop in our sales volume, we were able to deliver solid adjusted operating profit margins and strong cash generation. In an effort to stay ahead of the market, we implemented further cost reductions and accelerated our footprint optimization plans."

"Due to the continued weakening of global commodity markets, we took several impairment charges in the quarter. Despite these unprecedented times in mining, we remain steadfast in driving our growth strategies and prudently managing our balance sheet."

Consolidated bookings in the fourth quarter totaled $617 million, a decrease of 21 percent versus the fourth quarter of last year. Original equipment orders decreased 27 percent while service orders decreased 20 percent compared to the prior year. Current quarter bookings were reduced by $60 million from the impact of foreign currency exchange movements versus the year ago period, an $18 million decrease for original equipment and a $42 million decrease for service bookings. After adjusting for foreign currency exchange, orders were down 13 percent compared to the fourth quarter of last year, with original equipment orders down 14 percent and service orders down 13 percent.

Bookings for underground mining machinery decreased 10 percent in comparison to the fourth quarter of last year. Original equipment orders increased 15 percent compared to the prior year, largely due to a conveying system booked in Eurasia in the current quarter. Original equipment orders increased in Eurasia and Australia with decreases in all other regions. Service orders decreased 16 percent compared to the prior year with decreases in all regions except Eurasia. The year-over-year service decrease was primarily driven by reduced rebuild activity in North America. Orders for underground mining machinery were reduced by $46 million from the impact of foreign currency exchange compared to the fourth quarter of last year.

Bookings for surface mining equipment decreased 27 percent in comparison to the fourth quarter of last year. Original equipment orders decreased 53 percent compared to the prior year. Original equipment orders decreased in all regions except for modest increases in China and Australia. Service orders decreased 22 percent compared to the prior year, with declines in North America, China, Latin America and Africa partially offset by increases in Eurasia and Australia. Orders for surface mining equipment were reduced by $14 million from the impact of foreign currency exchange compared to the fourth quarter of last year.

Backlog at the end of the fourth quarter was $873 million, compared to $1.3 billion at the beginning of the fiscal year.

Operating loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 totaled $1,343 million, compared to a profit of $176 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. The fourth quarter of 2015 included an aggregate negative impact of $1,418 million from impairment charges, mark to market pension charges, restructuring charges, excess purchase accounting and acquisition costs compared to a $26 million negative impact for such items in 2014. The $127 million year-over-year decrease in adjusted operating income in the quarter was due to the loss of margin on lower sales volumes, unfavorable product mix, lower manufacturing absorption and increased bad debt expense, which were partially offset by savings from the company's cost reduction programs and decreased incentive compensation costs.

Restructuring activities continued in the quarter to align the company's workforce and overall cost structure with current and anticipated levels of future demand. The restructuring charges in the current quarter of $14 million were primarily in North America, Latin America and China. Additional restructuring charges in the range of $30 million to $40 million are expected in fiscal 2016 as the company continues to reduce staffing levels and optimize its global manufacturing and service footprint.

The company incurred $3 million of excess purchase accounting charges associated with the write-up of the acquired inventory and backlog from the Montabert acquisition. Excess purchase accounting charges from this transaction were fully recognized in the fourth quarter of 2015.

We disclosed in our third quarter report on Form 10-Q that we had an indicator of impairment due to the prolonged severe downturn of global commodity markets and the resulting impact on our market capitalization. As a result, we then performed an interim test of impairment on our goodwill on the last day of the third quarter. After completing this analysis in the fourth quarter, we determined that the estimated fair value of our underground reporting unit was lower than the carrying value of the reporting unit. The global commodity markets continued to deteriorate in our fiscal fourth quarter, so we again tested for impairment of our long-lived assets, including goodwill, other intangible assets and other long-lived assets. These impairment tests resulted in the full impairment of the underground reporting unit goodwill of $1,199 million, other intangible assets and other long-lived asset impairments of $118 million on the underground segment and $21 million of other intangible assets and other long-lived asset impairments on the surface segment.

The fourth quarter results also included a non-cash charge of $63 million and $16 million for fiscal 2015 and 2014, respectively, associated with the company's adoption of mark to market accounting for recognition of expense under its pension and postretirement benefit plans. This change in accounting policy eliminates the deferral and subsequent amortization of historic gains and losses on the company's pension and postretirement obligations and related plan assets and reflects those gains and losses immediately upon remeasurement of the plan assets and liabilities at each fiscal year-end. Other benefit costs including administrative costs, interest costs and expected return on assets continue to be recognized within operating results. Given that the plans are frozen and well funded, the company believes that the move to mark to market accounting more clearly depicts the impact of current economic conditions in our consolidated statement of operations.

Fully diluted loss per share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 totaled $13.43. This compared to fully diluted earnings per share of $1.31 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. The fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 included a net negative impact of $13.86 per share for impairment charges, mark to market pension charges, restructuring charges, excess purchase accounting, loss on early debt retirement and net discrete tax benefits. This compares to a positive net impact of $0.02 per share benefit from restructuring charges, mark to market pension charges, excess purchase accounting and net discrete tax benefits in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014.

The effective income tax rate was 4.0 percent for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, compared to 20.7 percent in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. Excluding impairment charges, pension items, restructuring charges, excess purchase accounting, acquisition activities and net discrete tax benefits in both periods, the effective income tax rate was 32.2 percent and 32.7 percent in the fourth quarter of 2015 and 2014, respectively.

Liquidity

Cash provided by continuing operations was $187 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, compared to $65 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. The year-over-year increase in cash from continuing operations was primarily due to the collection of long term receivables and the reduction of trade working capital compared to the prior year period, partially offset by lower earnings. Included in cash provided by operating activities for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 is a loss on the retirement of debt of $14 million, which represents the make whole premium on the redemption of our 6.0% Senior Notes due 2016.

During the fourth quarter of 2015, the company elected to redeem the entire $250 million aggregate principal amount of its 6.0% Senior Notes due 2016 to reduce interest expense and improve bank and credit rating leverage metrics. The cost of the redemption, including the payment of the make whole premium, was funded with a combination of cash on hand and borrowings under the company’s unsecured revolving credit facility.

The company announced today that its Board of Directors declared a dividend of $ 0.01 per share, which is a reduction from $0.20 per share. If maintained, this action would reduce annual cash outlay by approximately $75 million.

Effective December 14, 2015 the company amended its revolving credit facility and term loan agreements to provide increased financial flexibility to manage through continued challenging market conditions. This amendment provides higher leverage limits for the period beginning in the second fiscal quarter of 2016 and ending in the second fiscal quarter of 2018. Although we ended 2015 within compliance with our financial covenants, the combination of the step down in our bookings in the second half of 2015 and our outlook for 2016 have caused us to proactively seek this amendment. At the same time, we have reduced the total commitment on the revolving credit facility from $1 billion to $850 million, which will reduce undrawn bank fees.

Capital expenditures were $14 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, compared to $22 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014.

During the fourth quarter, the company did not repurchase any shares of its common stock.

The effective income tax rate was (0.1) percent for fiscal 2015, compared to 28.4 percent in fiscal 2014. Excluding impairment charges, pension items, restructuring charges, excess purchase accounting, acquisition activities and net discrete tax benefits in both periods, the effective income tax rate was 29.5 percent and 32.6 percent in fiscal 2015 and 2014, respectively. The decrease in the effective tax rate for the year was primarily attributable to a change in geographical mix of earnings.

Liquidity

Cash provided by continuing operations was $355 million for fiscal 2015, compared to $363 million in fiscal 2014. The decrease in cash provided by continuing operations was primarily due to lower earnings, partially offset by changes in trade working capital levels and the collection of long term receivables. Included in cash provided by operating activities for the year ended October 30, 2015 is a $14 million loss on the retirement of debt, which represents the make whole premium on the redemption of our 6.0% Senior Notes due 2016.

Capital expenditures were $71 million in fiscal 2015, compared to $91 million in fiscal 2014.

During the year ended October 30, 2015, we purchased 954,580 shares of common stock for approximately $50 million, all of which occurred in the first quarter. Since the inception of the share repurchase program in the fourth quarter of 2013, the company has repurchased approximately 9.8 million shares of its common stock for $533 million, leaving $467 million available under the current Board authorization.

Adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share metrics are non-GAAP measures that remove the effect of certain items and are provided to present consistency to aid investors in comparing our operating results across periods. These measures are not purported to be alternatives to diluted earnings per share or net income presented in accordance with GAAP.

Market Outlook

Over the course of 2015, pricing for most major commodities served by the company's customers fell between 20 and 30 percent as supply curtailments were slow to materialize in a tepid global growth environment. Global growth is expected to improve modestly in calendar 2016. Commodity prices are not expected to see any material improvement with current over-supplied conditions which will continue to strain cash flows for most mining companies. We expect further austerity driven cost reduction measures and asset consolidation to define the mining industry in 2016.

Slowing global growth, particularly in China, impacted copper markets during the year with prices falling to just above $2.00 per pound in calendar fourth quarter. In response to the 30 percent decline in pricing this year, several major mining companies have recently announced significant production cuts over the next 18 months. Accordingly, some forecasts have the refined copper market returning to an approximate 100,000 tonne deficit in 2016. While a return to deficit could provide some support to pricing, a weaker-than-expected demand profile will likely keep copper pricing below $2.50 per pound.

The combination of regulatory pressures along with sustained sub $3.00/mmBtu natural gas has resulted in calendar 2015 being one of the most challenging years on record for the U.S. coal market. Coal fired power plant closures and coal-to-gas switching are expected to drive a nearly 100 million ton reduction in coal burn in the U.S. this calendar year. The significant reduction in coal burn along with decreased export opportunities due to the strong U.S. dollar will likely see coal production fall nearly 10 percent in 2015. With the expectation of continued natural gas pricing below $3.00/mmBtu and further coal fired power plant closures, we expect coal burn to be down approximately 50 million tons in 2016.

The international seaborne thermal coal market remains oversupplied with prices trending to the $50 dollar per ton range since May. Reduced Chinese coal imports, which are down nearly 75 million tonnes this year, have outweighed the increases in India and Southeast Asia and left the market oversupplied. During the year, currency fluctuations benefiting Australia and Russia also resulted in excess supply in the market. However, in response to low prices, exports from Indonesia have fallen nearly 20 percent through the calendar third quarter which has helped to reduce the surplus in the market. The seaborne thermal coal supply surplus is expected to persist into 2016 although increasing imports into India and Southeast Asia along with fewer new projects will help to rebalance the market.

Seaborne metallurgical coal markets have also seen reduced demand as a result of global steel production contracting nearly 3 percent through October. As a result, met coal spot prices have fallen to below $80 per tonne putting approximately 70 percent of global supply below their cash operating costs. Iron ore markets have faced a similar trend down with weakening demand driving prices below $50 per tonne. While global steel demand is projected to increase just under 1 percent in 2016 following a 1.7 percent contraction in 2015, new supply growth is expected to exceed demand growth resulting in prices likely trending at or below current levels.

The global mining market is expected to remain under pressure in 2016 as oversupplied markets continue to rebalance. Supply curtailments along with improving demand in some markets could provide some relief. However, with most mining companies’ cash flows under pressure, industry capital expenditures are now expected to decline nearly 20 percent.

Company Outlook

"With global mining capital expenditures expected to step down again in 2016, we remain intensely focused on cost reduction and cash generation," continued Doheny. "We exceeded our cost reduction targets again in 2015 and are proactively taking actions to achieve another $85 million of cost reductions in 2016. Our cash generation in the fourth quarter was strong and was driven by good results in bringing our inventory in closer alignment with current order levels. We believe there are additional opportunities to structurally reduce inventories in 2016 by leveraging our global supply chain and the recent investments we have made in our service network.

"We will also continue to drive our growth strategies with service, new product development and expansion of our hard rock platform. While adoption rates are slowed by current market conditions, we have expanded our design capabilities to deliver value-added, new Joy branded service products and consumables to our customers and are well positioned to drive growth in this area in the future. Our hybrid excavator, underground hard rock loader and prototype hard rock mechanical cutting machine are all currently operating and proving out their capabilities with customers in the field. These organically developed new products in combination with the recent acquisitions and our global service network will enable us to drive growth in current and adjacent markets in the future.

“We are controlling the things we can, and are confident our strategies and operational execution will position us well for the future, but the state of our end markets sets up another challenging year in 2016 with revenue expected to be $2.4 billion to $2.6 billion and adjusted earnings per diluted share in the range of $0.10 to $0.50.”
