Generac Holdings Inc. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2018; Revises Earnings Guidance for the Year 2018

Generac Holdings Inc. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2018. For the quarter, the company reported net sales were $397,634,000 against $330,485,000 a year ago. Income from operations was $56,347,000 against $30,890,000 a year ago. Income before provision for income taxes was $45,186,000 against $20,005,000 a year ago. Net income attributable to company was $33,645,000 or $0.42 per basic and diluted share against $12,175,000 or $0.20 per diluted share a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $28,968,000 against net cash used in operating activities of $5,175,000 a year ago. The improvement in cash flow was driven by a variety of factors including the increase in operating earnings as compared to the prior year and lower working capital usage during the current year, partially offset by higher capital expenditures. Expenditures for property and equipment were $6,496,000 against $3,548,000 a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA was $71,781,000 against $46,703,000 a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA attributable to company was $70,232,000 against $45,747,000 a year ago. Adjusted net income attributable to company was $46,082,000 or $0.74 per diluted share against $24,694,000 or $0.39 per diluted share a year ago. Free cash flow was $23,339,000 against negative free cash flow of $8,094,000 a year ago. As of March 31, 2018, consolidated net debt was $794 million. The company is increasing its prior guidance for revenue growth for full-year 2018, which is due to improving end-market conditions for both residential and C&I products. Full year net sales are now expected to improve between 6% to 8% over the prior year, which is an increase from the 3% to 5% growth previously expected. Core sales growth is expected to be between 5% to 6%, which is an increase from the 2% to 3% growth previously expected. Net income margins, before deducting for non-controlling interests, are still expected to be between 9.5% to 10.0% for the full-year 2018, with adjusted EBITDA margins, also before deducting for non-controlling interests, still expected to be between 19.0% to 19.5% for the year. This updated guidance assumes that additional inflationary pressures from higher commodity prices, tariffs, the weaker U.S. dollar and certain wage pressures will be largely offset by the benefit from additional leverage of fixed operating costs on the expected higher core sales growth. Operating and free cash flow generation is expected to be strong, with the conversion of adjusted net income to free cash flow expected to be over 90%. Cash taxes are now anticipated to be approximately $29.5 million to $31.5 million, which translates into a full year 2018 cash income tax rate of approximately 13%.
