Mueller Water Products Reports Fiscal 2012 Second Quarter Results

Completed sale of U.S. Pipe business; announced debt redemption

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Mueller Water Products, Inc. (NYSE: MWA) today reported net sales of $251.5 million and a net loss of $109.8 million ($0.70 per diluted share) for the fiscal 2012 second quarter ended March 31, 2012, the net loss due almost entirely to the sale of its U.S. Pipe business. On April 1, 2012, the Company sold U.S. Pipe for $89.8 million in cash, subject to working capital and other adjustments, and reimbursement for certain potential liabilities estimated at $10.2 million. U.S. Pipe's operating results have been reclassified as discontinued operations, and its assets and liabilities have been reclassified as items held for sale, for all periods presented.

Summarized consolidated results of continuing operations for the 2012 second quarter compared to the 2011 second quarter results are:

  • Net sales for the 2012 second quarter increased 6.8 percent to $251.5 million from $235.5 million for the 2011 second quarter.
  • Operating income for the 2012 second quarter increased to $10.6 million from $9.8 million for the 2011 second quarter. Adjusted operating income for the 2012 second quarter increased to $11.5 million from $10.9 million for the 2011 second quarter.
  • Adjusted net loss per share for the 2012 second quarter improved to $0.01 from $0.02 for the 2011 second quarter.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the 2012 second quarter of $26.7 million was essentially flat with adjusted EBITDA for the 2011 second quarter.

Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the Company announced the redemption of $22.5 million in principal amount of its 8.75 percent Senior Unsecured Notes on May 18, 2012. The Company also repaid $48.0 million that was outstanding at March 31, 2012 under its asset based lending agreement.

"Since our last conference call, we have taken several significant steps to strengthen the company," said Gregory E. Hyland, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Mueller Water Products. "We completed the divestiture of U.S. Pipe and reduced our total outstanding debt and net debt leverage. The divestiture of U.S. Pipe enables us to focus on Mueller Co.'s higher-margin base business, as well as on our newer technology businesses - Mueller Systems and Echologics.

"Net sales and operating income at Mueller Co.'s base business grew in the second quarter. Net sales increased 2.4 percent and operating income for the base business grew 10.7 percent, driven by increased domestic shipments of valves and hydrants. Additionally, Mueller Systems and Echologics continued to gain traction in the marketplace with net sales growth of 22.3 percent year-over-year though, as expected, these businesses negatively impacted Mueller Co.'s current overall results as we are still in the investment phase with both businesses.

"Anvil again delivered solid year-over-year growth with net sales up 12.0 percent and operating income up 44.9 percent, driven primarily by increased strength in its oil & gas and fire protection businesses.

"We believe the steps we have taken to strengthen the company, combined with what appears to be improving end-market dynamics, position us well for future profitable growth."

Second Quarter Consolidated Results

Net sales for the 2012 second quarter of $251.5 million increased $16.0 million, or 6.8 percent, from the 2011 second quarter net sales of $235.5 million due to higher shipment volumes and higher prices at both Mueller Co. and Anvil.

Adjusted operating income for the 2012 second quarter of $11.5 million improved from $10.9 million for the 2011 second quarter, driven by the higher shipment volumes and higher sales prices mentioned above.

Second Quarter Segment Results

Mueller Co.

Net sales for the 2012 second quarter of $154.5 million increased 3.8 percent from the 2011 second quarter of $148.9 million due to higher shipment volumes and higher prices in the base business as well as at Mueller Systems and Echologics. The increase in shipment volumes in Mueller Co.'s base business, which excludes Mueller Systems and Echologics, was primarily due to higher shipments of domestic valves and hydrants.

Adjusted operating income for the 2012 second quarter was $9.0 million compared to adjusted operating income for the 2011 second quarter of $10.5 million. Mueller Co.'s base business adjusted operating income improved 10.7 percent from the 2011 second quarter, and its overall adjusted operating margin would have been 440 basis points higher except for the continued ramping up of operations at Mueller Systems and Echologics.

Anvil

Net sales for the 2012 second quarter of $97.0 million increased 12.0 percent from the 2011 second quarter of $86.6 million due to higher shipment volumes and higher prices. Net sales were higher across all of Anvil's businesses, especially oil & gas and fire protection.

Adjusted operating income for the 2012 second quarter of $10.0 million increased 44.9 percent compared to adjusted operating income for the 2011 second quarter of $6.9 million. Adjusted operating margin for the 2012 second quarter was 10.3 percent, a 230 basis point improvement over the 2011 second quarter adjusted operating margin of 8.0 percent. The higher shipment volumes and higher sales prices mentioned above helped drive this improvement.

Interest Expense, Net

Interest expense, net for the 2012 second quarter was $15.6 million, which included $1.6 million of noncash costs for terminated interest rate swap contracts, compared to $16.3 million for the 2011 second quarter, which included $2.0 million for such contracts. Although these contracts were terminated prior to 2011, the related costs are being amortized over the original term of the swap contracts.

Income Taxes

During the 2012 second quarter, the Company recorded income tax expense of $3.9 million on the pre-tax loss from continuing operations. This expense consists principally of a tax benefit of $2.0 million, or an effective tax benefit rate of 40.0 percent, offset by a $5.9 million valuation allowance charge related to deferred tax assets at September 30, 2011.

Overall, the Company recorded $34.4 million in valuation allowance charges during the 2012 second quarter primarily due to operating losses from discontinued operations. The Company's net operating loss carry forwards remain available to offset future taxable earnings.

Discontinued Operations

Discontinued operations for the 2012 second quarter included a pre-tax loss of $116.5 million from the sale of U.S. Pipe. U.S. Pipe's net sales and operating loss were $100.9 million and $2.8 million, respectively, for the 2012 second quarter. During the 2012 second quarter, the Company recorded a net income tax benefit of $18.6 million representing a tax benefit of $47.1 million offset by a $28.5 million valuation allowance charge.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

The Company presents adjusted income (loss) from operations, adjusted operating margin, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted net income (loss) per share, free cash flow, net debt and net debt leverage as non-GAAP measures. Adjusted income (loss) from operations represents income (loss) from operations excluding restructuring. This amount divided by net sales is adjusted operating margin. Adjusted EBITDA represents income (loss) from operations excluding restructuring, depreciation and amortization. This amount divided by net sales is adjusted EBITDA margin. The Company presents adjusted income (loss) from operations, adjusted operating margin, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin and net debt leverage because these are measures management believes are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of financial performance. Adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted net income (loss) per share exclude restructuring, certain costs from settled interest rate swap contracts, the income tax effects of these excluded items and any tax adjustment for the repatriation of earnings. These items are excluded because they are not considered indicative of recurring operations. Free cash flow represents cash flows from operating activities less capital expenditures from continuing operations. It is presented as a measurement of cash flows because management believes it is commonly used by the investment community. Net debt represents total debt less cash and cash equivalents. Net debt is commonly used by the investment community as a measure of indebtedness. Net debt leverage is net debt divided by adjusted EBITDA for the trailing four quarters. These non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools, and securities analysts, investors and other interested parties should not consider any of these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). These non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

A reconciliation of non-GAAP to GAAP results is included as an attachment to this press release and has been posted online at www.muellerwaterproducts.com.
