BRISTOL, Conn., April 30, 2021 — Barnes Group Inc. (NYSE: B), a global provider of highly engineered products, differentiated industrial technologies, and innovative solutions, today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2021.
“Barnes Group delivered a strong first quarter to open 2021 with solid Industrial revenue growth and modest sequential improvement in Aerospace. The additional sales volumes contributed to better than expected operating profit in the quarter and allowed us to exceed the high-end of our EPS outlook,” said Patrick J. Dempsey, President and Chief Executive Officer of Barnes Group Inc. “Our 2021 return to growth focus is off to a good start with strong orders and increasing backlog, factors which provide more confidence in our second half expectation. With a heightened conviction of an economic recovery in many of our end markets, we have increased our financial performance outlook for 2021,” added Dempsey.
First Quarter 2021 Highlights
First quarter 2021 net sales of $302 million were down 9% from $331 million in the prior year period, with organic sales (1) declining 10% driven by the impact of the global pandemic on the Company’s aerospace related end markets. Divested Seeger sales had a negative impact of 2%, while foreign exchange had a positive impact of 3%. On a sequential basis, sales improved 4% from the fourth quarter of 2020. Operating income was $32.4 million versus $49.3 million a year ago. Operating margin decreased 420 bps to 10.7%. On an adjusted basis, which excludes $2.4 million of Seeger divestiture adjustments in last year’s first quarter, operating income was down 37% and adjusted operating margin was down 490 bps from a year ago.

Interest expense was $3.9 million, a decrease of $0.4 million from the prior year quarter due to the benefit of lower average borrowings, partially offset by a higher average interest rate. Other expense was $1.5 million, down $0.1 million from a year ago.

The Company’s effective tax rate in the first quarter was 28.1% compared with 31.5% a year ago. The decrease is largely due to the absence of tax expense related to the completed sale of the Seeger business and a reduction of the statutory tax rate at one of our international operations, both of which occurred in the first quarter of 2020. These benefits were offset in part by the impact of the global intangible low-taxed income tax on foreign earnings in the U.S in the first quarter of 2021.

Net income for the first quarter was $19.4 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, compared to $29.7 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, a year ago. On an adjusted basis, net income per share was down 46% from $0.71 a year ago. Adjusted net income per diluted share in the first quarter of 2020 excludes $0.13 of Seeger divestiture adjustments.
First quarter 2021 cash provided by operating activities was $35.6 million versus $47.2 million in the prior year period. Free cash flow was $27.8 million compared to $35.3 million last year. Capital expenditures were $7.9 million, down $4.1 million from a year ago.

Segment Performance and End Market Outlook
First quarter sales were $220 million, up 10% from $199 million in the prior year period. Organic sales increased 8% related to volume increases due to stronger end markets. Divested Seeger revenues of $5.0 million had a negative impact of 3%, while favorable foreign exchange increased sales by $10.3 million, or 5%. On a sequential basis, total Industrial sales increased 5% from the fourth quarter of 2020.

Operating profit in the first quarter was $21.3 million, up 19% from $17.9 million in the prior year period. The increase was driven by the profit contribution of the higher sales volumes and productivity, offset in part by higher personnel costs. Operating margin was 9.7%, up 70 bps from a year ago. Excluding $2.4 million of Seeger divestiture adjustments in last year’s first quarter, adjusted operating profit was up 5% from last year’s $20.3 million and adjusted operating margin was down 50 bps from a year ago.

First quarter sales were $82 million, down 38% from $132 million last year as global aerospace end markets continue to be impacted by the global pandemic. Aerospace original equipment manufacturing (“OEM”) sales decreased 32% while aftermarket sales decreased 48%. On a sequential basis, Aerospace sales increased 2% from the fourth quarter of 2020.

Operating profit was $11.1 million, down 65% from $31.4 million in the prior year period, reflecting the impact of lower sales volumes, offset in part by better productivity. Operating margin was 13.6% versus 23.9% a year ago.

Aerospace OEM backlog ended the first quarter at $600 million, up 5% from December 2020. The Company expects to ship approximately 45% of this backlog over the next 12 months.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

Barnes Group’s balance sheet remains well-positioned with sufficient liquidity to fund operations. The Company has liquidity of $85 million in cash and approximately $441 million available under the revolving credit facility, subject to covenants which would have allowed $143 million under our current credit agreements.

The Company is in full compliance with all covenants under its amended credit agreements.

Updated 2021 Outlook

Barnes Group now expects 2021 organic sales to be up 10% to 12%, up from the prior 6% to 8% expectation. Foreign exchange is anticipated to have an approximate 2% favorable impact on 2021 sales, while divested revenues will have an approximate negative 1% impact. Operating margin is forecasted to be approximately 13%. Earnings per share are now expected to be in the range of $1.78 to $1.98, up 9% to 21% from 2020’s adjusted earnings per share of $1.64 and above our prior expectation of $1.65 to $1.90. Further, the Company forecasts capital expenditures of approximately $50 million and cash conversion of greater than 100% of net income. The effective tax rate for 2021 is expected to be approximately 30%.

(1) The Company has excluded the following from its "as adjusted" financial measurements for 2020: 1) adjustments related to the divestiture of the Seeger business, including $2.5M reflected within the Industrial segment's operating profit and $4.2M of tax expense and 2) charges taken in 2020 related to restructuring and workforce reduction actions to be implemented across its businesses, including $18.2M reflected within operating profit and $1.0M reflected within other expense (income), net. The tax charges resulting from the divestiture were recorded in the first quarter of 2020 following the completion of the sale. The tax effects of the restructuring actions in 2020 were calculated based on the respective tax jurisdictions and averaged approximately 27%. Management believes that these adjustments provide the Company and its investors with an indication of our baseline performance excluding items that are not considered to be reflective of our ongoing results. Management does not intend results excluding the adjustments to represent results as defined by GAAP, and the reader should not consider it as an alternative measurement calculated in accordance with GAAP, or as an indicator of the Company's performance. Accordingly, the measurements have limitations depending on their use.
