BRIDGEVIEW, IL / ACCESSWIRE / August 3, 2021 / Manitex International, Inc. (NASDAQ:MNTX), a leading international provider of cranes and specialized industrial equipment, today announced second quarter 2021 results. Net sales for the second quarter were $60.0 million, compared to $37.1 million in the prior year's second quarter, and net income from continuing operations was $5.4 million or $0.27 in earnings per share, compared to net loss from continuing operations of $(2.4 million) or $(0.12) per share, in the second quarter of 2020. Adjusted net income * from continuing operations in the second quarter of 2021 was $2.2 million, or $0.11 per share, compared to adjusted net loss of $(1.7 million), or $(0.08) per share, for the second quarter of 2020.

Quarterly Financial Highlights (Sequential comparisons unless noted otherwise):

  • Net sales increased 27% to $60.0 million compared to $47.2 million in the first quarter of 2021
  • Gross profit rose $2.6 million to $11.4 million, or 19.1% of sales compared to $8.8 million gross profit, or 18.7% of sales in the first quarter of 2021
  • Adjusted EBITDA* increased 121% to $4.2 million, or 7.1% of sales, from $1.9 million, or 3.9% of sales in the first quarter of 2021
  • Backlog increased 64% to $111.2 million as of June 30, 2021; compared to $68.0 million at December 31, 2020, being driven by growth across entire portfolio; book to bill was 1.46:1
  • Available liquidity through cash and credit lines of approximately $37 million as of June 30, 2021
  • Net Debt of $25.4 million results in leverage ratio below 3.0x

Note: Results presented above are from Continuing Operations

* Adjusted Numbers are discussed in greater detail and reconciled under "Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Items" at the end of this release.

"The dedication and execution of our entire team at Manitex in refocusing our business on global growth markets and achieving a higher level of financial performance has continued to drive our results at Manitex," commented Steve Filipov, CEO of Manitex International. "In the second quarter, we reported higher revenues, improving gross margins, and improved EBITDA both in terms of dollars and percentage. And, at over $2 million for the quarter, our adjusted net income from continuing operations is on pace to reach higher annualized levels than we've seen in recent years. We continue to gain share on knuckle booms and aerials in certain European markets such as Italy, France, Spain, and the UK, and our straight mast boom truck business is tracking to an industry-wide recovery from 2020, where we remain a market leader.

"We are seeing more confidence from our distributors and partners in their order patterns. There are tenders that we continue to work on around the globe, and legislative progress towards an infrastructure spending program in the United States suggests increased construction activity. Our products are all very well-suited to handle much of the work that will be done through new funding initiatives, and we're excited about the opportunities ahead.

"Our backlog, at over $111 million, reflects a healthy recovery in demand in many of the markets that we serve. Our balance sheet, with net debt of $25 million, is in good shape, and our cash and availability of approximately $37 million also positions us well to achieve our sales and margin objectives in this recovery. While the supply chain continues to pose challenges to the industry for product availability and pricing, we expect a strong finish to the year," concluded Mr. Filipov.

Conference Call:

Management will host a conference call with an accompanying slide presentation, after the close of the market, at 4:30PM ET today, August 3, 2021, to discuss the results with the investment community. Anyone interested in participating in the call should dial 877-407-0792 from within the United States or 201-689-8263 if calling internationally. A replay will be available until August 10, 2021, 11:59 PM which can be accessed by dialing 844-512-2921 if calling within the United States or 412-317-6671 if calling internationally.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Items

In this press release, we refer to various non-GAAP (U.S. generally accepted accounting principles) financial measures which management uses to evaluate operating performance, to establish internal budgets and targets, and to compare the Company's financial performance against such budgets and targets. These non-GAAP measures, as defined by the Company, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures being disclosed by other companies. While adjusted financial measures are not intended to replace any presentation included in our consolidated financial statements under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and should not be considered an alternative to operating performance or an alternative to cash flow as a measure of liquidity, we believe these measures are useful to investors in assessing our operating results, capital expenditure and working capital requirements and the ongoing performance of its underlying businesses. A reconciliation of Adjusted GAAP financial measures for the three month periods ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, and March 31, 2021 is included with this press release below and with the Company's related Form 8-K. Results of operations reflect continuing operations. All per share amounts are on a fully diluted basis. The amounts described below are unaudited, are reported in thousands of U.S. dollars, and are as of, or for the three month periods ended June 30, 2021, March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2020, unless otherwise indicated.
