Management Comments   

“We delivered strong first quarter results that exceeded our expectations and approached pre-pandemic Q1 2019 levels – a positive indicator that a broad based economic recovery is taking hold,” said Carl Christenson, Altra’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We grew revenue nearly 9% by capitalizing on demand acceleration across several end markets, including transportation, factory automation and specialty machinery, as well as broad-based strength in nearly all the geographies we serve. Our team continued to do a tremendous job managing the supply chain challenges to minimize customer disruptions and control costs. We believe our operating performance relative to delivery and lead time is a true competitive differentiator that could support our efforts to achieve share gains.

“Our strong topline performance and ongoing focus on cost management led to strong earnings and cash flow from operations. We paid down $20 million of debt and exited the quarter with 3.0x net debt to non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA leverage. Debt pay down remains a top strategic priority and we are on track to reduce our debt by a total of $150 million in 2021 and reach our sub 3.0x leverage target by mid-year.*

“We entered Q2 with strong tailwinds at our back. The economic recovery is spreading across more segments of our business. With continued bookings momentum across our early-cycle markets and the emerging ramp-up in orders for later cycle markets, we have further conviction that, following a solid 2021, we expect to be in for a very strong run in 2022 and beyond.”  

Business Outlook

“We are updating our outlook for 2021 to reflect improved visibility and growing optimism for the balance of the year,” continued Christenson. “We remain confident that we have the right talent, financial discipline, business system and market strength to ensure Altra is positioned to ride the market tailwinds and advance our long-term strategic priorities to solidify Altra as a world-class premier industrial company.”  

The following guidance reflects management’s best estimate and practical assessment of the financial impact of COVID-19 to the Company’s business, at this time.

Altra is updating guidance for full year 2021 as follows:

  • Full-year 2021 sales in the range of $1,820 million to $1,850 million, up from $1,790 million to $1,830 million
  • GAAP diluted EPS in the range of $2.08 to $2.21, up from $1.97 to $2.10
  • Non-GAAP diluted EPS in the range of $3.09 to $3.24*, up from $2.95 to $3.15*
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA in the range of $380.0 million to $390.0 million*, up from $370.0 million to $385.0 million*
  • Tax rate for the full year of approximately 20.0% to 22.5% before discrete items
  • Capital expenditures in the range of $50 million to $55 million
  • Depreciation and amortization in the range of $122.0 million to $124.0 million

* Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The non-GAAP financial measures used in this release are utilized by management in comparing our operating performance on a consistent basis. We believe that these financial measures are appropriate to enhance the overall understanding of our underlying operating performance trends compared to historical and prospective periods and our peers. We believe that these measures provide important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the Company's financial condition and results of operations as well as insight into the compliance with our debt covenants. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information calculated in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures presented above to our GAAP results has been provided in the financial tables included in this press release.
