  • Sales of $495 million increased 2 percent year-over-year
  • 9 percent organic sales growth offset by negative 7 percent foreign currency effect
  • Strong pricing actions continued to cover inflationary pressures
  • Earnings per diluted share (EPS) of $0.34
  • Returned approximately $36 million to shareholders; $19 million in share repurchases and $16 million in dividends

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 31, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Kennametal Inc. (NYSE: KMT) (the "Company") today reported results for its fiscal 2023 first quarter ended September 30, 2022, with earnings per diluted share (EPS) of $0.34, compared with $0.43 in the prior year quarter. EPS was not adjusted in the current quarter, whereas adjusted EPS was $0.44 in the prior year quarter.

"Our first quarter fiscal 2023 results were in line with expectations, delivering constant currency sales growth in all our end markets and regions from continued execution on our Commercial Excellence initiatives and improvement in customer demand," said Christopher Rossi, President and CEO.

Rossi continued, "Looking ahead, despite macroeconomic uncertainties, we see demand in line with normal seasonal patterns through this fiscal year. Regardless of the exact path the economy takes, however, we remain confident in our proven ability to advance our strategic initiatives and secure market leading positions."

Fiscal 2023 First Quarter Key Developments

Sales of $495 million increased 2 percent from $484 million in the prior year quarter, reflecting organic growth of 9 percent, partially offset by an unfavorable currency exchange effect of 7 percent.

Operating income was $49 million, or 9.8 percent of sales, compared to $55 million, or 11.3 percent of sales, in the prior year quarter. The decrease in operating income was due primarily to favorable pricing, higher sales volumes and favorable product mix which were more than offset by higher raw material costs of approximately $17 million, higher costs, foreign currency exchange headwinds of approximately $6 million and approximately $5 million from temporary supply chain disruptions. Operating income was not adjusted in the current quarter, whereas adjusted operating income was $56 million, or 11.6 percent margin, in the prior year quarter.

The reported effective tax rate (ETR) for the quarter was 27.5 percent compared to 27.0 percent in the prior year quarter. The ETR was not adjusted in the current quarter whereas the adjusted ETR was 26.9 percent in the prior year quarter.

Year-to-date net cash flow from operating activities was negative $11 million compared to positive $16 million in the prior year period. The change in net cash flow from operating activities was driven primarily by lower net income and working capital adjustments in part due to increased safety stock for potential supply chain disruptions. Year-to-date free operating cash flow (FOCF) was negative $40 million compared to negative $2 million in the prior year period. The decrease in FOCF was driven primarily by higher capital expenditures, lower net income and working capital adjustments in part due to increased safety stock for potential supply chain disruptions.

During the quarter, the Company repurchased 824 thousand shares of Kennametal common stock for $19 million under its share repurchase program. Inception-to-date the Company has repurchased 3.5 million shares of common stock for $105 million under the $200 million three-year program.

The Company paid $16 million in cash dividends to Kennametal shareholders during the quarter. The Company has a long history of consistently paying dividends to shareholders since its listing on the New York Stock Exchange in 1967.

Outlook

The Company's expectations for the second quarter of fiscal 2023 and the full year are as follows:

Quarterly Outlook:

  • Sales expected to be $480 - $500 million; includes a headwind of approximately $40 million from USD strength compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2022 and approximately 7 percent of price realization
  • Sequential Q1 to Q2 raw material headwind expected to be approximately $15 million
  • Adjusted operating income expected to be at least $30 million
  • Compared to adjusted operating income in the prior year quarter, pricing continues to cover approximately $25 million of raw material costs and wage and general cost increases; other headwinds include approximately $7 million from USD strength and approximately $5 million from temporary supply chain disruptions

Annual Outlook:

  • Sales expected to be $2.0 - $2.08 billion, including a currency headwind of approximately $130 million
  • Adjusted EPS is expected to be $1.30 - $1.70
  • Pricing actions expected to offset raw material costs, wages and general inflation
  • Free operating cash flow at approximately 100 percent of adjusted net income
  • Primary working capital as a percent of sales maintained at 31 - 33 percent throughout the year
  • Capital spending expected to be $100 - $120 million
  • Adjusted ETR is expected to be 26 - 28 percent
  • $200 million three-year share repurchase program to continue

The Company will provide more details regarding its Outlook during its quarterly earnings conference call.

Segment Results

Metal Cutting sales of $300 million increased 1 percent from $298 million in the prior year quarter, driven by organic growth of 9 percent, partially offset by an unfavorable currency exchange effect of 8 percent. Operating income was $29 million, or 9.5 percent of sales, compared to $29 million, or 9.8 percent of sales, in the prior year quarter. The decrease in operating income was due primarily to favorable pricing, higher sales volumes and favorable product mix which were more than offset by higher raw material costs of approximately $5 million, foreign currency exchange headwinds of approximately $5 million, higher costs and temporary supply chain disruptions. Operating income was not adjusted in the current quarter, whereas adjusted operating income was $30 million, or 10.2 percent margin, in the prior year quarter.

Infrastructure sales of $195 million increased 5 percent from $185 million in the prior year quarter, driven by organic growth of 10 percent, partially offset by an unfavorable currency exchange effect of 5 percent. Operating income was $21 million, or 10.7 percent of sales, compared to $26 million, or 14.1 percent of sales, in the prior year quarter. The decrease in operating income was due primarily to favorable pricing, higher sales volumes and favorable product mix which were more than offset by higher raw material costs of approximately $13 million, higher costs, temporary supply chain disruptions and foreign currency exchange headwinds of approximately $1 million. Operating income was not adjusted in the current quarter, whereas adjusted operating income was $26 million, or 14.1 percent margin, in the prior year quarter.

NON-GAAP RECONCILIATIONS (UNAUDITED)

In addition to reported results under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP), the following financial highlight tables include, where appropriate, a reconciliation of adjusted results including: operating income and margin; ETR; net income attributable to Kennametal; diluted EPS; Metal Cutting operating income and margin; Infrastructure operating income and margin; FOCF; and consolidated and segment organic sales growth (all of which are non-GAAP financial measures), to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. There were no adjustments for the three months ended September 30, 2022. Adjustments for the three months ended September 30, 2021 include restructuring and related charges and differences in projected annual tax rates. For those adjustments that are presented 'net of tax', the tax effect of the adjustment can be derived by calculating the difference between the pre-tax and the post-tax adjustments presented. The tax effect on adjustments is calculated by preparing an overall tax calculation including the adjustments and then a tax calculation excluding the adjustments. The difference between these calculations results in the tax impact of the adjustments.

Management believes that presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information about the results of operations of the Company for the current and past periods. Management believes that investors should have available the same information that management uses to assess operating performance, determine compensation and assess the capital structure of the Company. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most comparable GAAP financial measures. Investors are cautioned that non-GAAP financial measures used by management may not be comparable to non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Reconciliations and descriptions of all non-GAAP financial measures are set forth in the disclosures below.

Reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures for the following forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures for the second quarter or full fiscal year of 2023 have not been provided, including but not limited to: FOCF, adjusted operating income, adjusted net income, adjusted ETR and primary working capital. The most comparable GAAP financial measures are net cash flow from operating activities, operating income, net income attributable to Kennametal, ETR and working capital (defined as current assets less current liabilities), respectively. Primary working capital is defined as accounts receivable, net plus inventories, net minus accounts payable. Because the non-GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis are subject to uncertainty and variability as they are dependent on many factors - including, but not limited to, the effect of foreign currency exchange fluctuations, impacts from potential acquisitions or divestitures, gains or losses on the potential sale of businesses or other assets, restructuring costs, asset impairment charges, gains or losses from early extinguishment of debt, the tax impact of the items above and the impact of tax law changes or other tax matters - reconciliations to the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measures are not available without unreasonable effort.

Free Operating Cash Flow (FOCF)

FOCF is a non-GAAP financial measure and is defined by the Company as net cash flow provided by operating activities (which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure) less capital expenditures plus proceeds from disposals of fixed assets. Management considers FOCF to be an important indicator of the Company's cash generating capability because it better represents cash generated from operations that can be used for dividends, debt repayment, strategic initiatives (such as acquisitions) and other investing and financing activities.

Organic Sales Growth

Organic sales growth is a non-GAAP financial measure of sales growth (which is the most directly comparable GAAP measure) excluding the effects of acquisitions, divestitures, business days and foreign currency exchange from year-over-year comparisons. Management believes this measure provides investors with a supplemental understanding of underlying sales trends by providing sales growth on a consistent basis. Management reports organic sales growth at the consolidated and segment levels.
