AGCO Reports Improved First Quarter Results

Increases Full-year Outlook

DULUTH, Ga.--()--AGCO, Your Agriculture Company (NYSE:AGCO), a worldwide manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment, reported net sales of approximately $2.0 billion for the first quarter of 2018, an increase of approximately 23.3% compared to the first quarter of 2017.

“AGCO capitalized on strengthening industry demand and delivered solid results in the first quarter,” stated Martin Richenhagen, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Improved market demand in North America and healthy industry conditions in Western Europe supported sales and margin improvement in those regions resulting in better than expected sales and earnings growth for the Company. Our weak results in South America reflect the challenging industry environment and lower levels of production, as well as the transition costs associated with localizing newer product technology into our Brazilian factories. 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 expenses in 2018 over 2017, both in the first quarter, and the total planned for the full year.”

“Farmers are facing difficult growing conditions as we start 2018,” continued Mr. Richenhagen. “A dry weather pattern across Argentina and southern Brazil has decreased 2018 crop production expectations in those regions. Cold wet weather across much of the mid-western U.S. is delaying the start of planting and has contributed to modest increases in soft commodity prices. Global farm equipment demand continues on a slow recovery path following the extended period of decline. In North America, the industry has worked through much of the excess used equipment inventory and used equipment pricing has started to improve. Row crop farmers are beginning to replace their equipment after years of weaker demand. North American industry retail sales were relatively flat in the first quarter of 2018 compared to the same period in 2017. Overall, we project industry retail tractor sales to increase modestly in 2018 with retail sales of small tractors expected to be flat compared to last year, while retail sales in the row crop segment are expected to improve. Industry retail sales in Western Europe increased in the first three months of 2018, following a year of improved profitability by the arable farming segment as well as healthy economics for dairy producers. Sales improved across the important markets of Germany, the United Kingdom and France. For the full year of 2018, industry demand in Western Europe is expected to be relatively flat compared to 2017 as the benefit of last year’s improved harvest offsets the impact of projected softening economics in the dairy and livestock sector. Industry retail sales in South America decreased during the first three months of 2018. Industry demand in Brazil softened in advance of expected positive revisions to the government financing program which starts on July 1. In addition, industry sales declined in Argentina in response to a weaker first harvest. Industry demand in South America is expected to improve in the second half of the year and be relatively flat for the full year compared to 2017. Higher retail sales in Brazil are expected to be offset by lower sales in Argentina due to the impact of lower crop production on farm income. Longer term, we are optimistic about the fundamentals supporting commodity prices and farm income as well as healthy growth in our industry.”

North America

AGCO’s North American net sales increased 29.6% in the first three months of 2018 compared to the same period of 2017, excluding the positive impact of currency translation. Precision Planting, which was acquired in the fourth quarter of 2017, contributed sales of approximately $61.2 million in its seasonally strong first quarter. Excluding the impact of acquisitions and currency translation, sales grew approximately 11.7% compared to the first quarter of 2017. The largest increases were in mid-range and high horsepower tractors and sprayers. Income from operations for the first three months of 2018 improved approximately $23.8 million compared to the same period in 2017. The benefit of the Precision Planting acquisition and higher sales and production volumes produced most of the increase.

South America

Net sales in the South America region decreased 13.2% in the first three months of 2018 compared to the first three months of 2017, excluding the impact of unfavorable currency translation. Significant sales decreases in Argentina and Brazil produced most of the decline. Income from operations dropped approximately $19.0 million for the first three months of 2018 compared to the same period in 2017. Lower sales and production volumes, the impact of material cost inflation and the costs associated with transitioning to the new products with tier 3 emission technology all contributed to the decrease in income from operations.

Europe/Middle East

AGCO’s EME net sales increased 14.3% in the first three months of 2018 compared to the same period in 2017, excluding favorable currency translation impacts. Acquisitions benefited sales by approximately 3.8% during the first three months compared to the same period last year. Higher sales in Germany, the United Kingdom and France produced most of the increase. Income from operations improved approximately $35.4 million for the first three months of 2018, compared to the same period in 2017, due to the benefit of higher sales and margin improvement partially offset by higher engineering costs.

Asia/Pacific/Africa

Asia/Pacific/Africa net sales increased 12.4%, excluding the positive impact of currency translation, in the first three months of 2018 compared to the same period in 2017. Higher sales in Australia and China produced most of the increase. Acquisitions benefited sales by approximately 3.4% during the first three months of 2018 compared to the same period last year. Income from operations improved approximately $2.6 million in the first three months of 2018, compared to the same period in 2017, due to higher sales and production levels.

Outlook

AGCO’s net sales for 2018 are expected to reach $9.3 billion reflecting improved sales volumes, positive pricing as well as acquisition and foreign exchange impacts. Gross and operating margins are expected to improve from 2017 levels due to higher sales as well as the benefits resulting from the Company’s cost reduction initiatives, partially offset by increased engineering expenses. Based on these assumptions, 2018 earnings per share are targeted at approximately $3.65 on a reported basis, or approximately $3.70 on an adjusted basis, which excludes restructuring expenses.

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 40% to 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 a 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, 2017. AGCO disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements except as required by law.

7. SEGMENT REPORTING

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 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 from operations for one segment may not be comparable to another segment. Segment results for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017 are as follows:
