HUBBELL REPORTS THIRD QUARTER 2020
EARNINGS PER DILUTED SHARE OF $1.96 AND
ADJUSTED EARNINGS PER DILUTED SHARE OF $2.30

  • Q3 net sales -8% (organic -8%)
  • Q3 diluted EPS of $1.96; adjusted diluted EPS of $2.30
    • Includes restructuring and related investment ($0.07)
  • Year to date free cash flow of $404 million, up 29% year-over-year
  • Raising FY20 diluted EPS guidance to $6.30-$6.45; adjusted EPS of $7.45-$7.60

SHELTON, CT. (October 27, 2020) – Hubbell Incorporated (NYSE: HUBB) today reported operating results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020.

“Hubbell delivered another quarter of operating margin expansion and robust free cash flow generation, with strength in Electrical T&D driven by secular grid modernization trends partially offsetting continued softness in most other end markets,” said Gerben W. Bakker, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We continue to effectively manage through significant economic uncertainty by focusing on what we can control, and our ongoing operational transformation is producing sustainable productivity savings. These benefits, along with lower operating expenses and execution on price/cost, drove margin expansion in the quarter despite volume declines. Additionally, we again generated robust cash flow in the quarter and expect to deliver approximately $550 million in free cash flow for the full year.”

Mr. Bakker continued, “Grid hardening and modernization initiatives, along with ongoing renewable energy trends, drove strength in demand for T&D components and led to high single digit organic growth in our Power Systems business. Power Systems volumes also benefited from increased storm activity, which we estimate contributed approximately 4 points to year-over-year volume growth in the third quarter. As anticipated, Aclara revenues continued to be affected by regulatory restrictions on certain project deployments and installations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, although these headwinds moderated as the third quarter progressed. While our Electrical volumes improved sequentially relative to the second quarter, these end markets continued to face broad-based weakness as expected. Residential lighting markets were a notable exception, with double-digit organic growth in the quarter driven by strength in e-commerce and retail channels.”

Mr. Bakker concluded, “Hubbell’s third quarter results demonstrate strong execution in an uncertain environment. While we remain cautious in our near-term volume outlook, we see continued runway for operational improvement ahead of us, and are confident in Hubbell’s ability to drive consistent and differentiated performance. Our high quality portfolio of electrical and utility solutions with strong brand value and best in class reliability positions us well for long-term success.”

Certain terms used in this release, including “Net debt”, “Free Cash Flow”, “Organic net sales”, “Organic growth”, “Restructuring-related costs”, “EBITDA”, and certain “adjusted” measures, are defined under the section entitled “Non-GAAP Definitions.” See page 8 for more information.

THIRD QUARTER FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

The comments and year-over-year comparisons in this segment review are based on third quarter results in 2020 and 2019.

Electrical segment net sales in the third quarter of 2020 was $591 million compared to $689 million reported in the third quarter of 2019. Organic sales declined 14% in the quarter while the net impact of acquisitions and divestitures was neutral. Operating income was $71 million, or 11.9% of net sales, compared to $90 million, or 13.1% of net sales in the same period of 2019. Adjusted operating income was $76 million, or 12.9% of net sales, in the third quarter of 2020 as compared to $96 million, or 13.9% of net sales in the same period of the prior year. The decreases in operating income and operating margin were primarily due to lower volumes, partially offset by productivity savings from restructuring and footprint optimization initiatives, lower operating expenses, and price realization in excess of material costs.

Utility Solutions segment net sales in the third quarter of 2020 increased 0.5% to $517 million compared to $515 million reported in the third quarter of 2019. Organic sales were approximately flat compared to the third quarter of 2019, with acquisitions contributing approximately 1% growth and foreign exchange a modest headwind. Power Systems sales increased 9% and Aclara sales declined by 16%. Operating income was $92 million, or 17.8% of net sales, compared to $83 million, or 16.1% of net sales in the same period of 2019. Adjusted operating income was $105 million, or 20.3% of net sales, in the third quarter of 2020 as compared to $95 million, or 18.4% of net sales in the same period of the prior year. Increases in operating income and operating margin were primarily due to price realization in excess of material costs, lower operating expenses and positive mix.

Adjusted third quarter 2020 results exclude $0.25 of amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets as well as $0.09 due to a pension settlement charge. Adjusted third quarter 2019 results exclude $0.24 of amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, as well as a $0.37 gain on divestiture of our Haefely high voltage test business and a $0.09 investment loss recorded in other expense.

Net cash provided from operating activities was $152 million in the third quarter of 2020 versus $176 million in the comparable period of 2019. Free cash flow was $135 million in the third quarter of 2020 versus $151 million reported in the comparable period of 2019.

SUMMARY & OUTLOOK

For the full year 2020, Hubbell now anticipates earnings per diluted share in the range of $6.30-$6.45 and adjusted diluted earnings per share (“Adjusted EPS”) in the range of $7.45-$7.60. Adjusted EPS excludes amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, which the Company expects to be approximately $1.00 for the full year. The Company believes Adjusted EPS is a useful measure of underlying performance in light of our acquisition strategy.

The earnings per share and adjusted earnings per share ranges are based on an adjusted tax rate of 22-23% and continue to include approximately $0.40 per share of anticipated restructuring and related investment. The ranges also incorporate the impact of a previously completed divestiture and previously completed acquisitions, the net of which is expected to be a modest tailwind to 2020 adjusted EPS. The Company expects free cash flow to be approximately $550 million in 2020.

NON-GAAP DEFINITIONS

References to “adjusted” operating measures exclude the impact of certain costs, gains or losses. Management believes these adjusted operating measures provide useful information regarding our underlying performance from period to period and an understanding of our results of operations without regard to items we do not consider a component of our core operating performance. Adjusted operating measures are non-GAAP measures, and include adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, adjusted net income, adjusted net income available to common shareholders, adjusted net income attributable to Hubbell, adjusted earnings per diluted share, and adjusted EBITDA. These non-GAAP measures exclude, where applicable:

  • Amortization of all intangible assets associated with our business acquisitions, including inventory step-up amortization associated with those acquisitions. The intangible assets associated with our business acquisitions arise from the allocation of the purchase price using the acquisition method of accounting in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification 805, “Business Combinations.” These assets consist primarily of customer relationships, developed technology, trademarks and tradenames, and patents, as reported in Note 6—Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets, under the heading “Total Definite-Lived Intangibles,” within the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements set forth in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for Fiscal Year Ended December 31, 2019. The Company excludes these non-cash expenses because we believe it (i) enhances management’s and investors’ ability to analyze underlying business performance, (ii) facilitates comparisons of our financial results over multiple periods, and (iii) provides more relevant comparisons of our results with the results of other companies as the amortization expense associated with these assets may fluctuate significantly from period to period based on the timing, size, nature, and number of acquisitions. Although we exclude amortization of these acquired intangible assets and inventory step-up from our non-GAAP results, we believe that it is important for investors to understand that revenue generated, in part, from such intangibles is included within revenue in determining adjusted net income attributable to Hubbell Incorporated.
  • A gain recognized in the third quarter of 2019 from the disposition of a business,
  • An investment loss recognized in the third quarter of 2019 and reporting within Other income (expense), net in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Income,
  • Pension charges including a settlement charge in the third quarter of 2020 and a multi-employer pension charge in the second quarter of 2019 to recognize certain additional liabilities associated with the Company’s participation and withdrawal from a multi-employer pension plan.
  • Income tax effects of the above adjustments which are calculated using the statutory tax rate, taking into consideration the nature of the item and the relevant taxing jurisdiction, unless otherwise noted.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that excludes the items noted above and also excludes the Other income (expense), net, Interest expense, net, and Provision for income taxes captions of the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Income, as well as depreciation and amortization expense.

Net debt (defined as total debt less cash and investments) to total capital is a non-GAAP measure that we believe is a useful measure for evaluating the Company’s financial leverage and the ability to meet its funding needs.

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP measure that we believe provides useful information regarding the Company’s ability to generate cash without reliance on external financing. In addition, management uses free cash flow to evaluate the resources available for investments in the business, strategic acquisitions and further strengthening the balance sheet.

In connection with our restructuring and related actions we have incurred restructuring costs as defined by U.S. GAAP, which are primarily severance and employee benefits, asset impairments, accelerated depreciation, as well as facility closure, contract termination and certain pension costs that are directly related to restructuring actions. We also incur restructuring-related costs, which are costs associated with our business transformation initiatives, including the consolidation of back-office functions and streamlining our processes, and certain other costs and gains associated with restructuring actions. We refer to these costs on a combined basis as “restructuring and related costs”, which is a non-GAAP measure.

Organic net sales, a non-GAAP measure, represent net sales according to U.S. GAAP, less net sales from acquisitions and divestitures during the first twelve months of ownership or divestiture, respectively, less the effect of fluctuations in net sales from foreign currency exchange. The period-over-period effect of fluctuations in net sales from foreign currency exchange is calculated as the difference between local currency net sales of the prior period translated at the current period exchange rate as compared to the same local currency net sales translated at the prior period exchange rate. We believe this measure provides management and investors with a more complete understanding of underlying operating results and trends of established, ongoing operations by excluding the effect of acquisitions, dispositions and foreign currency, as these activities can obscure underlying trends. When comparing net sales growth between periods excluding the effects of acquisitions, business dispositions and currency exchange rates, those effects are different when comparing results for different periods. For example, because net sales from acquisitions are considered inorganic from the date we complete an acquisition through the end of the first year following the acquisition, net sales from such acquisition are reflected as organic net sales thereafter.

There are limitations to the use of non-GAAP measures. Non-GAAP measures do not present complete financial results. We compensate for this limitation by providing a reconciliation between our non-GAAP financial measures and the respective most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies’ non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names. These financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, as substitutes for, or alternative measures of, reported GAAP financial results, and should be viewed in conjunction with the most comparable GAAP financial measures and the provided reconciliations thereto. We believe, however, that these non-GAAP financial measures, when viewed together with our GAAP results and related reconciliations, provide a more complete understanding of our business. We strongly encourage investors to review our consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety and not rely on any single financial measure.

Reconciliations of each of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure can be found in the tables below.
