OSHKOSH, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 27, 2021–
Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK), a leading innovator of mission-critical vehicles and essential equipment, today reported fiscal 2021 first quarter net income of $69.5 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, compared to $75.7 million, or $1.10 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. Results for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 included after-tax charges of $7.8 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, associated with restructuring actions in the Access Equipment segment and $0.6 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, associated with business acquisition costs in the Defense segment. Excluding these charges, fiscal 2021 first quarter adjusted 1 net income was $77.9 million, or $1.13 per diluted share. Comparisons in this news release are to the corresponding period of the prior year, unless otherwise noted.
Consolidated net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 decreased 7.0 percent to $1.58 billion as a result of a decrease in sales in the Access Equipment and Commercial segments, offset in part by higher Defense and Fire & Emergency segment sales.
Consolidated operating income in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 decreased 12.1 percent to $95.9 million, or 6.1 percent of sales, compared to $109.1 million, or 6.4 percent of sales, in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The decrease was primarily due to the impact of lower consolidated sales volume, adverse absorption as a result of lower production and restructuring-related charges in the Access Equipment segment, offset in part by lower spending as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, larger cumulative catch-up adjustments in the Defense segment and favorable product mix. Excluding $8.0 million of pre-tax charges related to restructuring actions and $0.7 million of pre-tax business acquisition costs, adjusted 1 operating income in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was $104.6 million, or 6.6 percent of sales.
“We are pleased to announce fiscal first quarter sales of $1.6 billion and adjusted earnings per share of $1.13, both of which exceeded our expectations,” said Wilson R. Jones, chief executive officer of Oshkosh Corporation. “Several of our key manufacturing sites are located in areas of the United States that suffered from very high rates of COVID-19 spread in the Fall of 2020. This caused high levels of absenteeism and brought challenges for many of our supply chain partners. In response, Oshkosh team members demonstrated strong execution by successfully controlling costs, managing our operations and delivering impressive results.
“During the quarter, our Defense segment received a Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) order for just over $900 million that included JLTVs for three international customers as well as trailers and support kits. This is the third straight year that we’ve received a large JLTV delivery order, and this backlog provides a strong foundation with solid visibility for our Defense segment. In December, we announced plans to acquire Pratt Miller, an advanced engineering, technology and innovation firm. We expect to leverage their speed, agility and expertise in electrification as well as autonomous and connected systems among many strengths to support new product offerings across the company. We closed on the transaction in mid-January and welcome the team at Pratt Miller to the Oshkosh family.
“While the timing of recovery in our Access Equipment segment remains difficult to predict, we are confident in the strength and resilience of our businesses as we continue to adapt and pivot during the pandemic. Although we are not providing quantitative expectations with today’s announcement, we are seeing improvement in our end markets and believe that we are well positioned to grow revenues in the back half of fiscal 2021 and retain a positive long-term outlook,” said Jones.
Factors affecting first quarter results for the Company’s business segments included:
Access Equipment – Access Equipment segment net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 decreased 21.5 percent to $563.7 million. The decrease in sales was due to lower market demand resulting from the economic downturn as a result of COVID-19.
Access Equipment segment operating income in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 decreased 63.9 percent to $24.9 million, or 4.4 percent of sales, compared to $69.0 million, or 9.6 percent of sales, in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The decrease in operating income was primarily due to the impact of lower sales volume, adverse absorption as a result of lower production, unfavorable price/cost dynamics and charges related to restructuring actions of $8.0 million, offset in part by lower spending as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, lower intangible asset amortization and favorable product mix. Excluding $8.0 million of pre-tax charges related to restructuring actions, adjusted 1 operating income in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was $32.9 million, or 5.8 percent of sales.
Defense – Defense segment net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 increased 10.0 percent to $550.3 million due to higher aftermarket parts & service sales.
Defense segment operating income in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 increased 70.3 percent to $52.8 million, or 9.6 percent of sales, compared to $31.0 million, or 6.2 percent of sales, in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The increase in operating income was due to an increase in the cumulative catch-up adjustment on contract margins of $11.0 million, favorable product mix and the impact of higher sales volume, offset in part by higher new product development spending. Excluding $0.7 million of pre-tax business acquisition costs, adjusted 1 operating income in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was $53.5 million, or 9.7 percent of sales.
Fire & Emergency – Fire & Emergency segment net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 increased 6.6 percent to $273.9 million due to higher Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting vehicle volume as a number of multi-unit international awards were recognized in the first quarter of fiscal 2021.
Fire & Emergency segment operating income in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 increased 13.6 percent to $35.1 million, or 12.8 percent of sales, compared to $30.9 million, or 12.0 percent of sales, in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The increase in operating income was largely due to the impact of higher sales volume and lower spending as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Commercial – Commercial segment net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 decreased 12.7 percent to $195.7 million due to lower demand caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact of the sale of the concrete batch plant business in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. Concrete batch plant sales were $10.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020.
Commercial segment operating income in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 decreased 33.1 percent to $11.9 million, or 6.1 percent of sales, compared to $17.8 million, or 7.9 percent of sales, in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The decrease in operating income was primarily due to the impact of lower sales volumes and higher material costs, offset in part by lower spending as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Corporate – Corporate operating costs in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 decreased $10.8 million to $28.8 million primarily due to lower spending as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, including lower consolidated healthcare costs, and the timing of share-based compensation expense.
Interest Expense Net of Interest Income – Interest expense net of interest income in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 decreased $0.4 million to $11.4 million.
Provision for Income Taxes – The Company recorded income tax expense in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 of $13.2 million, or 15.9 percent of pre-tax income, compared to $20.7 million, or 21.4 percent of pre-tax income, in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. Excluding the tax impact of restructuring and acquisition costs of $0.3 million, adjusted 1 income tax expense in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was $13.5 million, or 14.7 percent of adjusted pre-tax income. Adjusted 1 income tax expense in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 included discrete tax benefits of $6.7 million, primarily related to the resolution of certain tax matters upon conclusion of an audit.
The Company’s Board of Directors today declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.33 per share of Common Stock. The dividend will be payable on February 26, 2021, to shareholders of record as of February 12, 2021.
