CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- NN, Inc., (NASDAQ: NNBR), a diversified industrial company, today reported its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.

GAAP Results

Net sales for the third quarter of 2018 increased $57.5 million, or 38.8%, to $205.7 million, compared to $148.2 million for the third quarter of 2017, driven by sales from acquisitions of $54.4 million and organic sales growth of $5.1 million offset by foreign exchange impacts of $2.0 million.

On a GAAP basis, income from operations for the third quarter of 2018 was $5.9 million, compared to $5.6 million for the same period in 2017, due to strong growth in income from organic and acquisition sales growth in Life Sciences partially offset by higher than normal costs incurred in new program launches at each of the Life Sciences, Mobile Solutions and Power Solutions segments. Net loss on a GAAP basis for the third quarter of 2018 was $13.8 million. This compares to net income on a GAAP basis of $126.0 million in the third quarter of 2017. The third quarter of 2018 included $0.6 million in acquisition costs on a pre-tax basis and $6.6 million in debt extinguishment costs on a pre-tax basis. The third quarter of 2017 net income included $129.4 million of income from discontinued operations, net of tax which was primarily related to the gain on sale of our former Precision Bearings business.

On a GAAP basis, income from operations for third quarter 2018 in the Life Sciences segment was $6.7 million, compared to $3.0 million for the same period in 2017.

On a GAAP basis, income from operations for third quarter 2018 in the Mobile Solutions segment was $4.7 million, compared to $6.8 million for the same period in 2017.

On a GAAP basis, income from operations for third quarter 2018 in the Power Solutions segment was $2.7 million, compared to $4.2 million for the same period in 2017.

Adjusted Results

Adjusted income from operations for the third quarter of 2018 was $26.4 million, compared to $14.7 million for the same period in 2017. Adjusted net income increased to $8.7 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, from $6.4 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, for the same period in 2017.

Richard Holder, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Through our improved business balance amongst end markets that behave in a counter cyclical manner, we delivered improved operating margins compared to last year.  However, late in the quarter, our topline was adversely affected by macroeconomic factors primarily tied to tariff and trade concerns and uncertainty primarily in China, as well as an unfavorable foreign exchange and product mix in our Mobile Solutions business."

Life Sciences

Net sales for the third quarter of 2018 were $78.4 million, compared to $22.2 million in the third quarter of 2017, an increase of 253.7% or $56.2 million. Adjusted income from operations for the quarter was $16.2 million, compared to $5.3 million in 2017.

Mr. Holder commented, "With the ongoing integration of Paragon Medical, coupled with strong growth in our legacy businesses, we continue to anticipate strong momentum in Life Sciences in line with our expectations."

Mobile Solutions

Net sales for the third quarter of 2018 were $81.8 million, compared to $81.7 million in the third quarter of 2017, an increase of 0.2% or $0.1 million, with organic sales growth of 3% being offset by foreign exchange effects. Adjusted income from operations for the quarter decreased $1.9 million to $6.6 million, compared to $8.5 million in the third quarter of 2017. The slowing demand in China, coupled with costs incurred in new program launches impacted sales and adjusted operating income during the quarter.

Mr. Holder commented, "Mobile Solutions continues to drive toward improving its operating performance and production efficiency as we transition the ramp up of our record number of new programs from start-up to full production. While global automotive demand is softening, we anticipate that the continued adoption of CAFE technologies and our new program launches in this market will lessen the severity of the impact on our CAFE business."

Power Solutions

Net sales for the third quarter of 2018 were $46.1 million, compared to $44.8 million in the third quarter of 2017, an increase of 2.8% or $1.3 million. Adjusted income from operations for the quarter was $7.9 million, compared to $7.3 million in 2017.

Mr. Holder commented, "We are making targeted strategic investments in Power Solutions, primarily in Aerospace and Defense to support this growing business. Recently announced investments into state-of-the-art technologies, as well as the expansion of our manufacturing capabilities in the northeast and California, are consistent with NN's balanced portfolio approach and overall focus on expanding our presence in the electrical and aerospace end markets."

The full set of financial guidance for the third quarter of 2018 can be found in our supplemental presentation posted in the Investor Relations section of our website at www.nninc.com.

The Company discloses in this presentation the non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted income from operations, adjusted net income (loss), and adjusted net income per diluted share.  Each of these non-GAAP financial measures provides supplementary information about the impacts of acquisition, divestiture and integration related expenses, foreign-exchange impacts on inter-company loans, reorganizational and impairment charges.  Over the past four years, we have completed seven acquisitions, two of which were transformative for the Company, and sold two of our businesses.  The costs we incurred in completing such acquisitions, including the amortization of intangibles and deferred financing costs, and these divestitures have been excluded from these measures because their size and inconsistent frequency are unrelated to our commercial performance during the period, and which we believe are not indicative of our ongoing operating costs. We exclude the impact of currency translation from these measures because foreign exchange rates are not under management's control and are subject to volatility. Other non-operating charges are excluded as the charges are not indicative of our ongoing operating cost. We believe the presentation of adjusted income from operations, adjusted net income (loss), and adjusted net income per diluted share provide useful information in assessing our underlying business trends and facilitates comparison of our long-term performance over given periods.

The non-GAAP financial measures provided herein may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in the Company's industry, as other companies may calculate such financial results differently. The Company's non-GAAP financial measures are not measurements of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to actual income growth derived from income amounts presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company does not consider these non-GAAP financial measures to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial results.

(a) Non-GAAP Adjusted income from operations represents GAAP income from operations, adjusted to exclude the effects of restructuring and integration expense; non-operational charges related to acquisition and transition expense, intangible amortization costs for fair value step-up in values related to acquisitions, and when applicable, our share of income from joint venture operations. We believe this presentation is commonly used by investors and professional research analysts in the valuation, comparison, rating and investment recommendations of companies in the industrial industry. We use this information for comparative purposes within the industry. Non-GAAP adjusted income from operations is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a measure of liquidity or as an alternative to GAAP income from operations.

(b) This line item reflects the aggregate tax effect of all nontax adjustments reflected in the table above. In addition, the footnotes above indicate the after-tax amount of each individual adjustment item.  NN, Inc. estimates the tax effect of the adjustment items identified in the reconciliation schedule above by applying NN, Inc's. overall estimated effective tax rate to the pretax amount, unless the nature of the item and/or the tax jurisdiction in which the item has been recorded requires application of a specific tax rate or tax treatment.

(c) Non-GAAP adjusted net income (loss) represents GAAP  net income (loss) adjusted to exclude the tax-affected effects of restructuring and integration charges (related to plant closures and other charges incurred to implement our strategic goals that do not necessarily represent a major strategic shift in operations), charges related to acquisition and transition costs,  amortization of intangibles costs for fair value step-up in values related to acquisitions and amortization of deferred financing costs,  foreign exchange gain (loss) on inter-company loans, gains and losses in the fair value of interest rate swaps, estimated interest expense on cash held from divestiture, the impact of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act and income from discontinued operations. We believe this presentation is commonly used by investors and professional research analysts in the valuation, comparison, rating and investment recommendations of companies in the industrial industry. We use this information for comparative purposes within the industry. Non-GAAP adjusted income (loss) from segment operations is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a measure of liquidity or as an alternative to GAAP income (loss) from continuing operations.
