AGCO Reports First Quarter Results

DULUTH, Ga.--()--AGCO, Your Agriculture Company (NYSE:AGCO), a worldwide manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment, reported net sales of approximately $1.6 billion for the first quarter of 2017, an increase of approximately 4.4% compared to the first quarter of 2016. Reported net loss was $0.13 per share for the first quarter of 2017, and adjusted net loss, which excludes restructuring expenses and a non-cash expense related to waived stock compensation, was $0.02 per share. These results compare to reported net income of $0.09 per share and adjusted net income, excluding restructuring expenses, of $0.11 per share for the first quarter of 2016. Excluding unfavorable currency translation impacts of approximately 0.9%, net sales in the first quarter of 2017 increased approximately 5.2% compared to the first quarter of 2016.

“Four consecutive years of near record harvests are satisfying the growing global demand for grain”

“In the first quarter, AGCO executed well against its business plan,” stated Martin Richenhagen, AGCO’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our results reflect the weak but stabilizing global demand for agricultural equipment. Despite softer market conditions in both Europe and North America, we managed sales growth and higher adjusted operating income in the quarter. While our focus on cost management to mitigate market pressures continues, we are maintaining a strong level of investment in new products and technologies, as demonstrated by an increase in engineering expense planned for 2017 compared to 2016. We are continuing to refresh our full line of equipment with a focus on high horsepower products for the growing professional farming sector as well as new products that will expand our current product offering. Our new products are being very well received in the market as evidenced by a number of awards received in February at the SIMA Farm Show in Paris, including the Machine of the Year Award for our Massey Ferguson 6718 S. At 200 horsepower, the 6718 S is the most powerful four cylinder tractor on the market.”

“Four consecutive years of near record harvests are satisfying the growing global demand for grain,” continued Mr. Richenhagen. “Higher grain inventories are pressuring commodity prices, and estimates call for 2017 farm income below 2016 levels. Industry demand remains near trough levels but is showing some signs of stabilization. In the first quarter, North America industry sales were down due to continued weakness in sales in the row crop sector. Industry sales of high-horsepower tractors, combines, sprayers and grain storage and handling equipment remained well below last year’s levels. Industry retail sales in Western Europe were down modestly in the first three months of 2017 and are being impacted by weak demand from dairy producers and marginal economics for the arable farming segment. Sales declined most significantly in France from high levels in the first quarter of 2016, which were stimulated by tax benefits. Growth in the United Kingdom and Germany offset most of the decline in the French market. Industry retail sales in South America during the first three months of 2017 grew strongly from depressed levels last year. A more stable political environment in Brazil is contributing to equipment replacement in that market, and more supportive government policies in Argentina continue to stimulate industry sales. Our long-term view remains very optimistic for demand in the agricultural equipment industry. We expect elevated grain demand driven by population growth and increased protein consumption to result in favorable income levels for farmers.”

North America

AGCO’s North America net sales decreased 5.7% in the first three months of 2017 compared to the same period of 2016, excluding the negative impact of currency translation. Dealer inventory reduction efforts and softer industry demand contributed to lower sales. Sales declines were most significant in hay tools, grain storage equipment and sprayers and were partially offset by increased sales of tractors. Income from operations for the first three months of 2017 improved approximately $3.2 million compared to the same period in 2016. The benefit of improved factory productivity and expense reduction efforts were mostly offset by lower sales and production volumes.

South America

Net sales in the South American region increased 31.1% in the first three months of 2017 compared to the first three months of 2016, excluding the impact of favorable currency translation. Significant sales increases in Brazil and Argentina produced most of the growth. Income from operations improved approximately $1.8 million for the first three months of 2017 compared to the same period in 2016, as the benefit of higher sales and production volumes, and positive impact of currency translation was mostly offset by material inflation and the costs associated with transitioning to the new tier 3 emission standards.

Europe/Middle East

AGCO’s EME net sales increased 4.0% in the first three months of 2017 compared to the same period in 2016, excluding unfavorable currency translation impacts, primarily due to the benefit of acquisitions. Higher sales in Germany and the United Kingdom were partially offset by sales declines in France. Income from operations decreased approximately $2.8 million for the first three months of 2017, compared to the same period in 2016, due to higher engineering expenses and the negative impact of currency translation, partially offset by the benefit of higher sales.

Asia/Pacific/Africa

Net sales in AGCO’s Asia/Pacific/Africa region, excluding the negative impact of currency translation, increased 22.1% in the first three months of 2017 compared to the same period in 2016 due primarily to increased sales in Australia and China. Income from operations improved approximately $2.8 million in the first three months of 2017, compared to the same period in 2016, due to higher sales levels.

Outlook

Weak global demand for farm equipment is expected to continue to negatively impact AGCO’s sales and earnings in 2017. AGCO’s net sales for 2017 are expected to reach $7.7 billion. Gross and operating margins are expected to be improved from 2016 levels due to higher sales along with the benefits from the Company’s cost reduction initiatives. Based on these assumptions, 2017 earnings per share are targeted at approximately $2.70 excluding restructuring expenses and the non-cash expense related to waived stock compensation.

Safe Harbor Statement

Statements that are not historical facts, including the projections of earnings per share, sales, industry demand, market conditions, commodity prices, currency translation, farm income levels, margin levels, investments in product and technology development, new product introductions, restructuring and other cost reduction initiatives, production volumes, tax rates and general economic conditions, are forward-looking and subject to risks that could cause actual results to differ materially from those suggested by the statements. The following are among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results discussed in or implied by the forward-looking statements.

  • Our financial results depend entirely upon the agricultural industry, and factors that adversely affect the agricultural industry generally, including declines in the general economy, increases in farm input costs, lower commodity prices, lower farm income and changes in the availability of credit for our retail customers, will adversely affect us.
  • A majority of our sales and manufacturing take place outside the United States, and, as a result, we are exposed to risks related to foreign laws, taxes, economic conditions, labor supply and relations, political conditions and governmental policies. These risks may delay or reduce our realization of value from our international operations.
  • Most retail sales of the products that we manufacture are financed, either by our joint ventures with Rabobank or by a bank or other private lender. Our joint ventures with Rabobank, which are controlled by Rabobank and are dependent upon Rabobank for financing as well, finance approximately 50% of the retail sales of our tractors and combines in the markets where the joint ventures operate. Any difficulty by Rabobank to continue to provide that financing, or any business decision by Rabobank as the controlling member not to fund the business or particular aspects of it (for example, a particular country or region), would require the joint ventures to find other sources of financing (which may be difficult to obtain), or us to find another source of retail financing for our customers, or our customers would be required to utilize other retail financing providers. As a result of the recent economic downturn, financing for capital equipment purchases generally has become more difficult in certain regions and in some cases, can be expensive to obtain. To the extent that financing is not available or available only at unattractive prices, our sales would be negatively impacted.
  • Both AGCO and our finance joint ventures have substantial account receivables from dealers and end customers, and we would be adversely impacted if the collectability of these receivables was not consistent with historical experience; this collectability is dependent upon the financial strength of the farm industry, which in turn is dependent upon the general economy and commodity prices, as well as several of the other factors listed in this section.
  • We have experienced substantial and sustained volatility with respect to currency exchange rate and interest rate changes, including uncertainty associated with the Euro, which can adversely affect our reported results of operations and the competitiveness of our products.
  • Our success depends on the introduction of new products, particularly engines that comply with emission requirements, which requires substantial expenditures.
  • Our production levels and capacity constraints at our facilities, including those resulting from plant expansions and systems upgrades at our manufacturing facilities, could adversely affect our results.
  • Our expansion plans in emerging markets, including establishing a greater manufacturing and marketing presence and growing our use of component suppliers, could entail significant risks.
  • We depend on suppliers for components, parts and raw materials for our products, and any failure by our suppliers to provide products as needed, or by us to promptly address supplier issues, will adversely impact our ability to timely and efficiently manufacture and sell products. We also are subject to raw material price fluctuations, which can adversely affect our manufacturing costs.
  • We face significant competition, and if we are unable to compete successfully against other agricultural equipment manufacturers, we would lose customers and our net sales and profitability would decline.
  • We have a substantial amount of indebtedness, and, as result, we are subject to certain restrictive covenants and payment obligations that may adversely affect our ability to operate and expand our business.

Further information concerning these and other factors is included in AGCO’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016. AGCO disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements except as required by law.

2. RESTRUCTURING EXPENSES

Beginning in 2014 through 2017, the Company announced and initiated several actions to rationalize employee headcount at various manufacturing facilities located in Europe, China, Brazil, Argentina and the United States, as well as various administrative offices located in Europe, Brazil, China and the United States in order to reduce costs in response to softening global market demand and lower production volumes. The aggregate headcount reduction was approximately 2,750 employees in 2014, 2015 and 2016. The Company had approximately $15.3 million of severance and related costs accrued as of December 31, 2016. During the three months ended March 31, 2017, the Company recorded an additional $5.1 million of severance and related costs associated with further rationalizations primarily in the United States, South America and Europe, associated with the termination of approximately 200 employees, and paid approximately $5.9 million of severance and associated costs.

5. ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE SALES AGREEMENTS

At March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, the Company had accounts receivable sales agreements that permit the sale, on an ongoing basis, of a majority of its wholesale receivables in North America, Europe and Brazil to its U.S., Canadian, European and Brazilian finance joint ventures. As of both March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, the receivables sold under the U.S., Canadian, European and Brazilian accounts receivable sales agreements were approximately $1.1 billion.

Losses on sales of receivables associated with the accounts receivable financing facilities discussed above, reflected within “Other expense, net” in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations, were approximately $8.3 million and $4.8 million during the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

The Company’s finance joint ventures in Europe, Brazil and Australia also provide wholesale financing directly to the Company’s dealers. As of March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, these finance joint ventures had approximately $44.0 million and $41.5 million, respectively, of outstanding accounts receivable associated with these arrangements. In addition, the Company sells certain trade receivables under factoring arrangements to other financial institutions around the world.

6. NET (LOSS) INCOME PER SHARE

A reconciliation of net (loss) income attributable to AGCO Corporation and subsidiaries and weighted average common shares outstanding for purposes of calculating basic and diluted net (loss) income per share for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016 is as follows:

   
Three Months Ended March 31,
2017     2016
Basic net (loss) income per share:
Net (loss) income attributable to AGCO Corporation and subsidiaries $ (10.1 ) $ 7.8
Weighted average number of common shares outstanding 79.5   83.0
Basic net (loss) income per share attributable to AGCO Corporation and subsidiaries $ (0.13 ) $ 0.09
Diluted net (loss) income per share:
Net (loss) income attributable to AGCO Corporation and subsidiaries $ (10.1 ) $ 7.8
Weighted average number of common shares outstanding 79.5 83.0
Dilutive stock-settled appreciation rights, performance share awards and restricted

stock units

  0.1
Weighted average number of common shares and common share equivalents outstanding for purposes of computing diluted net (loss) income per share 79.5   83.1
Diluted net (loss) income per share attributable to AGCO Corporation and subsidiaries $ (0.13 ) $ 0.09
 

The weighted average number of common shares and common share equivalents outstanding for purposes of computing diluted net (loss) income per share above do not include the impact of dilutive stock-settled appreciation rights, performance share awards and restricted stock units for the three months ended March 31, 2017 as the impact would have been antidilutive. The number of shares excluded from the weighted average number of common shares and common share equivalents outstanding was approximately 0.6 million shares for the three months ended March 31, 2017.

7. SEGMENT REPORTING

Effective January 1, 2017, the Company modified its system of reporting, resulting from changes to its internal management and organizational structure, which changed its reportable segments from North America; South America; Europe/Africa/Middle East; and Asia/Pacific to North America; South America; Europe/Middle East; and Asia/Pacific/Africa. The Asia/Pacific/Africa reportable segment includes the regions of Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, and the Europe/Africa/Middle East segment no longer includes certain markets in Africa. Effective January 1, 2017, these reportable segments are reflective of how the Company’s chief operating decision marker reviews operating results for the purposes of allocating resources and assessing performance.

The Company’s four reportable segments distribute a full range of agricultural equipment and related replacement parts. The Company evaluates segment performance primarily based on income (loss) from operations. Sales for each segment are based on the location of the third-party customer. The Company’s selling, general and administrative expenses and engineering expenses are charged to each segment based on the region and division where the expenses are incurred. As a result, the components of income (loss) from operations for one segment may not be comparable to another segment. Segment results for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016 are as follows:
