Barnes Group Inc. (B ), a global industrial and aerospace manufacturer and service provider, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2016.

Fourth quarter 2016 net sales of $324 million were up 13% from $287 million in the prior year period driven by organic sales growth (1) of 9% and acquisition sales of 5%. Foreign exchange unfavorably impacted sales by 1%. Net income for the fourth quarter was $36.7 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, compared to $24.4 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, a year ago. On an adjusted basis, net income was $0.67 per diluted share, up 12% from $0.60 last year. Adjusted diluted net income per share in the fourth quarter of 2016 excludes $0.03 of FOBOHA short-term purchase accounting adjustments in our Industrial Segment and a $0.03 benefit related to a contract termination arbitration award in our Aerospace Segment. Fourth quarter 2015 adjusted diluted net income per share excludes restructuring and workforce reduction charges of $0.05 and pension lump sum settlement charges of $0.11.

For the full year, Barnes Group generated net sales of $1,231 million, up 3% from $1,194 million last year. Full year organic sales were flat, while acquisition sales of 4% were partially offset by an unfavorable foreign exchange impact of 1%. Net income for the year was $135.6 million, or $2.48 per diluted share, compared to $121.4 million, or $2.19 per diluted share, a year ago. On an adjusted basis, net income was $2.53 per diluted share, up 6% from $2.38 last year. Adjusted diluted net income per share for 2016 excludes $0.05 of FOBOHA short-term purchase accounting adjustments and acquisition transaction costs in our Industrial Segment and a contract termination arbitration award which offset related charges in our Aerospace Segment. For 2015, adjusted diluted net income per share excludes a pension lump sum settlement charge of $0.11, short-term purchase accounting adjustments and acquisition transaction costs of $0.05 related to Manner, Thermoplay and Priamus, restructuring and workforce reduction charges of $0.05, and contract termination dispute charges of $0.03. These unfavorable adjustments were partially offset by a $0.05 per share contribution from a tax refund.

A table reconciling 2016 and 2015 non-GAAP adjusted results presented in this release to the Company’s GAAP results is included at the end of this press release.

"Barnes Group made great progress in 2016 on our transformational journey to position the Company as a leading global provider of engineered products and innovative solutions," said Patrick J. Dempsey, President and Chief Executive Officer of Barnes Group Inc. "Our three strategic enablers - the Barnes Enterprise System, Innovation, and Talent Management - were instrumental in helping us further strengthen our competitive advantage during the year, and they will empower our long-term growth and success as we move forward."

"Within our Industrial Segment, we added FOBOHA’s proprietary cube mold technology to our advanced offerings in the plastic injection molding industry. At Aerospace, considerable progress has been made in the transition to new, emerging aircraft engine programs. In addition, our resolute focus on driving the Barnes Enterprise Systems deeper into our businesses has led to substantial and sustainable productivity gains. These benefits are reflected in the continued improvement of our financial performance," added Dempsey.

Industrial

-- Fourth quarter 2016 sales were $215.7 million, up 13% from $190.2 million in the same period last year. Organic sales increased by 8%, primarily driven by continued strength in our Nitrogen Gas Products and Molding Solutions businesses. Unfavorable foreign exchange reduced sales by approximately $3.4 million, or 2%, while the FOBOHA business contributed $14.3 million in acquisition sales.

-- Operating profit in the fourth quarter was $30.2 million, up 106% from $14.7 million in the prior year period. The increase was driven by the profit impact of increased organic sales volumes, productivity, and the absence of pension lump sum settlement charges, restructuring and workforce reduction charges, and acquisition short-term purchase accounting and transaction costs which negatively impacted operating profit last year. The fourth quarter of 2016 includes FOBOHA short-term purchase accounting adjustments of $1.8 million. On an adjusted basis, operating profit of $32.0 million was up 24% from an adjusted $25.9 million a year ago. Adjusted operating margin was 14.8%, up 120 bps.

-- Full year 2016 sales were $824.2 million, up 5% from $782.3 million last year. Organic sales of approximately 1% benefited from strong Molding Solutions end markets. Unfavorable foreign exchange impacted sales by $9.6 million or 1%, while acquisition revenues were approximately $47.4 million.

-- Full year operating profit of $129.7 million was up 26% from $103.0 million in the prior year. Operating profit benefited from higher productivity, the profit contribution of acquired businesses, and the absence of pension lump sum settlement charges, short-term purchase accounting adjustments and acquisition transaction costs, and restructuring and workforce reduction charges that impacted 2015 results. For 2016, operating profit included $3.5 million of FOBOHA short-term purchase accounting adjustments and acquisition transaction costs. On an adjusted basis, operating profit was $133.2 million for 2016 versus $117.5 million a year ago, an increase of 13%. Adjusted operating margin was 16.2%, up 120 bps from last year.

Aerospace

-- Fourth quarter 2016 sales were $108.5 million, up 12% from $96.8 million in the same period last year. Aerospace original equipment manufacturing ("OEM") sales increased as a result of higher volumes including $4.0 million from a contract termination arbitration award. In the aftermarket, maintenance, repair and overhaul ("MRO") sales and spare parts sales were both favorable to a year ago.

-- Operating profit was $21.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to $15.4 million in the prior year period. The operating profit increase reflects the profit impact from higher sales volumes, a $1.4 million benefit from the contract termination arbitration award, and the absence of pension lump sum settlement charges and restructuring and workforce reduction charges taken last year. On an adjusted basis, operating profit was $19.8 million, up 6% from $18.6 million a year ago. Adjusted operating margin was 18.2%, down 100 bps.

-- Full year 2016 sales were $406.5 million, down 1% from $411.7 million last year. Decreased sales from the OEM and spare parts businesses were only partially offset by higher MRO sales.

-- Operating profit was $62.5 million for 2016 versus $65.4 million a year ago. Operating profit was unfavorably impacted by OEM price deflation, the profit impact of lower volumes of aftermarket spare parts, and unfavorable productivity, offset in part by lower net contract termination dispute charges, the absence of pension lump sum settlement charges, and restructuring and workforce reduction charges taken last year. Full year 2016 adjusted operating profit was $64.1 million, down 10% from $71.4 million in the prior year. Adjusted operating margin was 15.8%, down 150 bps.

-- Aerospace backlog was $636 million at the end of the fourth quarter of 2016, up 11% year-over-year and flat sequentially from the third quarter of 2016.

Additional Information

-- Interest expense increased $1.2 million to $11.9 million in 2016 primarily as a result of a higher average interest rate versus a year ago.

-- Other income, net in 2016 was $2.3 million compared to $0.2 million a year ago primarily driven by $1.4 million of interest income related to the contract termination arbitration award.

-- The Company’s effective tax rate for 2016 was 25.7% compared with 23.2% in 2015. The increase is primarily due to the expiration of certain tax holidays, the absence of the 2015 refund of withholding taxes and the change in the mix of earnings attributable to higher-taxing jurisdictions, partially offset by lower repatriations of a portion of current year foreign earnings to the U.S. and the tax benefits recorded as a result of the new accounting guidance for stock based compensation.

2017 Outlook

Barnes Group expects 2017 total revenue growth of 6% to 8% with organic revenue growth of 3% to 5% after consideration of 1% unfavorable foreign exchange and a positive 4% from acquisition revenues. Operating margins are forecasted to be in the range of 16% to 17%. Adjusted earnings from continuing operations are expected to be in the range of $2.61 to $2.76 per diluted share, up 3% to 9% from 2016’s adjusted diluted earnings per share of $2.53. Further, the Company anticipates capital expenditures of approximately $55 million and cash conversion to be approximately 100% of net income. For 2017, the effective tax rate is expected to be in the range of 27% to 28%.

"Strengthening operating and financial performance over the second half of 2016, coupled with our organic investments in growth programs and recent acquisitions, provide positive momentum heading into 2017," said Christopher J. Stephens, Jr., Senior Vice President, Finance and Chief Financial Officer, Barnes Group Inc. "We expect to sustain solid cash flow generation and favorable cash conversion. We’ll continue to invest in our businesses and look for further value-enhancing acquisitions, all with a well-positioned and supportive balance sheet."

Notes:

(1) The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. The Company believes that the free cash flow metric is useful to investors and management as a measure of cash generated by business operations that can be used to invest in future growth, pay dividends, repurchase stock and reduce debt. This metric can also be used to evaluate the Company’s ability to generate cash flow from business operations and the impact that this cash flow has on the Company’s liquidity.

(2) For the purpose of calculating the cash conversion ratio, the Company has excluded the pension lump-sum settlement charge, net of tax, from 2015 net income.

Notes:

(1) The Company has excluded the following from its "as adjusted" financial measurements for 2016: 1) transaction costs related to its FOBOHA acquisition, 2) short-term purchase accounting adjustments related to its FOBOHA acquisition, 3) charges related to the contract termination dispute and 4) operating income related to the contract termination arbitration award and the non-operating interest income awarded. The Company has excluded the following from its "as adjusted" financial measurements for 2015: 1) short-term purchase accounting adjustments related to its Manner acquisition, 2) short-term purchase accounting adjustments related to its Thermoplay acquisition, 3) a tax benefit recognized related to a refund of withholding taxes that were previously paid and included in tax expense in prior years, 4) restructuring and workforce reduction charges, 5) the pension lump-sum settlement charge, 6) transaction costs related to its Thermoplay and Priamus acquisitions and 7) charges related to the contract termination dispute. The tax effect of these items was calculated based on the respective tax jurisdiction of each item. In 2015, the tax effect on the acquisition transaction costs, based on the countries in which such costs originated, approximated 14%. The remaining items include tax effects that range from approximately 23% to 37%. Management believes that these adjustments provide the Company and its investors with an indication of our baseline performance excluding items that are not considered to be reflective of our ongoing results. Management does not intend results excluding the adjustments to represent results as defined by GAAP, and the reader should not consider it as an alternative measurement calculated in accordance with GAAP, or as an indicator of the Company’s performance. Accordingly, the measurements have limitations depending on their use.
