 Gardner Denver Previews Selected Preliminary Financial Results for Full Year 2019
   Monday, January 27, 2020 6:30:00 AM ET

Expects to Exceed Mid-Point of Full Year 2019 Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow Guidance

Launches Financing for Ingersoll Rand Transaction

MILWAUKEE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gardner Denver Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: GDI) announced today selected full year 2019 preliminary unaudited financial results ahead of commencing the financing process associated with the Ingersoll Rand transaction.

The Company anticipates reporting full year 2019 revenues of $2.5 billion, Income before income taxes of $191 million, and Adjusted EBITDA of $565 million, resulting in Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues of 23.0%. In addition, the Company expects to report annual cash flow from operating activities of $343 million and $43 million in capital expenditures, resulting in free cash flow of $300 million. Total debt as of December 31, 2019 is expected to be $1.6 billion, Net debt as of December 31, 2019 is expected to be $1.1 billion and Net debt to Adjusted EBITDA leverage for the year is expected to be 2.0x. These unaudited financial results are preliminary and are subject to finalization of the Company’s quarterly and annual financial and accounting procedures.

On April 30, 2019, Ingersoll Rand plc (“Ingersoll Rand”) and Gardner Denver announced they had entered into a merger agreement, whereby Ingersoll Rand’s Industrial Segment would be separated from Ingersoll Rand, spun off to Ingersoll Rand shareholders and subsequently combined with Gardner Denver in a Reverse Morris Trust arrangement. Later today, Gardner Denver intends to launch the marketing of (i) a $1,900 million 7-year Senior Secured Term Loan B in connection with the spin-off of Ingersoll Rand’s Industrial Segment and (ii) an amendment and extension of the Company’s existing Senior Secured Term Loans to align their maturity dates with the new Term Loan B, among other changes. As part of the financing activity, the Company is disclosing selected financial information contained in this release.

“We are pleased to announce the launch of the financing for the Ingersoll Rand transaction and excited about the strong finish to the year,” said Vicente Reynal, Chief Executive Officer. “The results are better than the mid-point of our most recent guidance for 2019 Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow, driven by solid commercial and operational execution across the segments and continued progress on improving net working capital. As we look ahead, optimizing our financing as part of the pending merger is a key step toward positioning the new company for future success. We look forward to our upcoming earnings call at which time we will provide a business update and discuss fourth quarter and full year 2019 results as well as provide an update on the status of the transaction, which continues to be on track to close in early 2020.”

Gardner Denver will broadcast a conference call to discuss results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2019 on Tuesday, February 18, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. Eastern time through a live webcast. This webcast will be available in listen-only mode and can be accessed, for up to ninety days following the call, through the Investors section on the Gardner Denver website at http://investors.gardnerdenver.com .

Such forward-looking statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties, including macroeconomic factors beyond the Company’s control, risks of doing business outside the United States, the Company’s dependence on the level of activity in the energy industry, potential governmental regulations restricting the use of hydraulic fracturing, raw material costs and availability, the risk of a loss or reduction of business with key customers or consolidation or the vertical integration of the Company’s customer base, loss of or disruption in the Company’s distribution network, the risk that ongoing and expected restructuring plans may not be as effective as the Company anticipates, and the Company’s substantial indebtedness.

Accordingly, there are or will be important factors that could cause actual outcomes or results to differ materially from those indicated in these statements. These factors should not be construed as exhaustive and should be read in conjunction with the other cautionary statements that are included in this release and in our filings with the SEC. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as required by law.

Non-U.S. GAAP Measures of Financial Performance

In addition to consolidated GAAP financial measures, Gardner Denver reviews various non-GAAP financial measures, including “Adjusted EBITDA,” “Net debt,” “Net debt to Adjusted EBITDA” and “Free Cash Flow.”

Gardner Denver believes Adjusted EBITDA is a helpful supplemental measure to assist management and investors in evaluating the Company’s operating results as it excludes certain items that are unusual in nature or whose fluctuation from period to period do not necessarily correspond to changes in the operations of Gardner Denver’s business. Adjusted EBITDA represents net income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and certain non-cash, non-recurring and other adjustment items. Gardner Denver believes that the adjustments applied in presenting Adjusted EBITDA are appropriate to provide additional information to investors about certain material non-cash items and about non-recurring items that the Company does not expect to continue at the same level in the future.

Gardner Denver uses Free Cash Flow to review the liquidity of its operations. Gardner Denver measures Free Cash Flow as cash flows from operating activities less capital expenditures. Gardner Denver believes Free Cash Flow is a useful supplemental financial measure for management and investors in assessing the Company’s ability to pursue business opportunities and investments and to service its debt. Free Cash Flow is not a measure of our liquidity under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities.

Net debt represents total debt less cash and cash equivalents. Gardner Denver uses Net debt and Net debt to Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate the Company’s leverage. Gardner Denver believes Net debt and Net debt to Adjusted EBITDA are useful supplemental financial measures as they assist management and investors in evaluating the Company’s leverage and ability to take on additional debt.

Management and Gardner Denver’s board of directors regularly use these measures as tools in evaluating the Company’s operating and financial performance and in establishing discretionary annual compensation. Such measures are provided in addition to, and should not be considered to be a substitute for, or superior to, the comparable measures under GAAP. In addition, Gardner Denver believes that Adjusted EBITDA, Net debt, Net debt to Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow are frequently used by investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of issuers, many of which also present Adjusted EBITDA, Net debt, Net debt to Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow when reporting their results in an effort to facilitate an understanding of their operating and financial results and liquidity.

Adjusted EBITDA, Net debt, Net debt to Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss), diluted earnings per share or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as alternatives to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA, Net debt, Net debt to Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider such measures either in isolation or as substitutes for analyzing Gardner Denver’s results as reported under GAAP.

Reconciliations of Net debt and Free Cash Flow to their most comparable U.S. GAAP financial metrics for historical periods are presented in the tables below.

A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income, which is the most comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure, is unavailable because the Company has not yet determined its provision for income taxes for the year ended December 31, 2019. Accordingly, the Company presents in the tables below a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Income before income taxes.
