“The fourth quarter completed a tremendous year for RBC Bearings and I couldn’t be more pleased with our performance,” said Dr. Michael J. Hartnett, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Most of our industrial and aerospace markets contributed to achieve strong organic growth and free cash flow generation supported a net debt reduction of over 100 million dollars over the year.”

 

Fourth Quarter Results

Net sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 were $179.9 million, an increase of 12.3% from $160.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. Excluding RBC Canada, organic net sales increased 13.5% for the fourth quarter and 10% for the full year fiscal 2018. Net sales for the aerospace markets increased 4.6% and the industrial markets increased by 26.4%. Organically, net sales in the aerospace and industrial markets increased by 6.4% and 26.3% respectively. Gross margin for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 was $69.7 million compared to $63.2 million for the same period last year. Gross margin as a percentage of net sales was 38.8% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to 39.5% for the same period last year.

 

SG&A for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 was $29.6 million, an increase of $3.4 million from $26.2 million for the same period last year. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A was 16.4% for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to 16.4% for the same period last year. The increase was primarily due to higher personnel related expenses of $2.2 million, $0.3 million of additional incentive stock compensation and other items of $0.9 million.

 

Other operating expenses for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 totaled $2.2 million compared to $2.6 million for the same period last year. For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, other operating expenses were comprised primarily of $2.3 million of amortization of intangible assets offset by $0.1 million of other items. Other operating expenses last year consisted of $2.4 million in amortization of intangible assets and $0.2 million of other items.

 

Operating income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 was $37.9 million compared to operating income of $34.4 million for the same period last year. Excluding costs associated with restructuring, operating income would have been $38.3 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. Excluding these adjustments, operating income as a percentage of net sales would have been 21.3% compared to 21.5% for the same period last year.

 

Interest expense, net was $1.8 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to $2.0 million for the same period last year.

 

Income tax expense for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 was $9.1 million compared to $10.7 million for the same period last year. Our effective income tax rate for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 was 25.5% compared to 33.2% for the same period last year. Tax provision was impacted by the adoption of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) signed into law by the President on December 22, 2017. The income tax expense includes approximately $0.3 million benefit related to the one-time repatriation transition tax and approximately $0.3 million benefit associated with the revaluation of deferred tax liabilities. The income tax expense also includes approximately $1.0 million of benefit associated with the adoption of ASU No. 2016-09 “Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting” and reflects the lower blended statutory rate as a result of the enactment of TCJA.

 

 

 

Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 was $26.7 million compared to $21.6 million for the same period last year. On an adjusted basis, net income would have been $26.4 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, compared to an adjusted net income of $21.6 million for the same period last year.

 

Diluted EPS for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 was $1.09 per share compared to $0.90 per share for the same period last year. On an adjusted basis, diluted EPS for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 would have been $1.08 per share compared to an adjusted diluted EPS of $0.90 per share for the same period last year, an increase of 20.0%.

 

Backlog, as of March 31, 2018, was $392.1 million compared to $354.1 million as of April 1, 2017.

 

Outlook for the First Quarter Fiscal 2019

The Company expects net sales to be approximately $171.0 million to $174.0 million in the first quarter fiscal 2019. This would result in a growth rate of approximately 4.3% to 6.2% on a year over year basis and organic growth rate of approximately 6.3% to 8.2% on a year over year basis.
