BRIGGS & STRATTON CORPORATION REPORTS
FISCAL 2020 THIRD QUARTER RESULTS

Company taking aggressive action to control costs, enhance liquidity, and advance its strategic priorities

MILWAUKEE, May 7, 2020/PRNewswire/ -- Briggs & Stratton Corporation (NYSE: BGG), a recognized global leader in providing power to get work done, today announced financial results for its third quarter of fiscal 2020, ended March 29, 2020.

Fiscal Third Quarter 2020 Highlights:

Net sales of $474 million declined $107 million, or 18%, from the prior year, as pandemic-related actions customers took late in the quarter compounded anticipated short-term impacts in certain business areas.
Gross profit margin of 13.4% (GAAP) and adjusted gross profit margin of 15.2% decreased from gross profit margin of 16.7% (GAAP) and adjusted gross profit margin of 17.4%, respectively, last year.

GAAP net loss was $145 million, or $3.47 per share, compared with net income of $8.0 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2019. Net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2020 included non-cash goodwill impairment charges of $67 million related to a recent review of end markets inclusive of effects related to COVID-19. The company also recorded a $70 million non-cash valuation allowance against deferred tax assets.

Adjusted net loss was $10.8 million, or $0.26 per share, compared to net income of $14.6 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, for the prior year.

The company withdrew its full-year fiscal 2020 guidance on March 31, 2020, due to the uncertainly caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“As we work through these uncertain times, I want to acknowledge the exemplary efforts of our entire team to ensure the health and safety of our communities, customers, business partners and ourselves,” said Briggs & Stratton Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Todd J. Teske. “I could not be prouder of our employees’ dedication and responsiveness to our customers’ needs as we face these challenging times head on.”

Teske continued, “Our third quarter performance reflects the unexpected and rapid impact this pandemic has had across the global economy. Our OEM customers and channel partners quickly decreased business activity in the latter half of March to protect workers and public health and safety, which impacted our anticipated shipments. Combined with actions we are taking as part of our repositioning plan, we are aggressively working to reduce costs, better manage working capital, and prioritize cash generation. These actions resulted in the reduction of inventories by $85 million during the quarter. Lastly, we recently amended our credit agreement to enhance our liquidity to better navigate the economic impact of the pandemic as we continue our work to secure long-term capital for the business.”

Teske concluded, “We remain focused on our strategic priorities, including the consolidation of our residential engine production from two facilities to one which will generate up to $14 million in savings, and the commercialization of our Vanguard commercial battery system. We recognized $5 million in cost savings during the quarter from our Business Optimization Program and improved operating efficiencies. We are also focused on the strategic repositioning plan we announced in early March, which builds on our foundation as a clear leader in power application. We also must continue to address our financial position and liquidity. We will continue to assess business conditions and move forward with these strategic goals in mind.”

Third Quarter Highlights

Engine sales unit volumes decreased by approximately 538,000 engines, or 26%, on lower shipments of residential engines. The majority of this decrease was anticipated due to timing of shipments based on the company’s belief that channel partners would order sequentially later compared to last year. Shipments also declined due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic causing several customers to close down or reduce production operations in the latter half of March.
Net sales of $270 million declined 20% from a year ago, including an estimated negative impact of $10 million from the COVID-19 pandemic which reduced segment sales by three percentage points. The company estimates that COVID-19 reduced adjusted segment income of $6.7 million by approximately $4 million.
GAAP gross profit percentage compared to last year decreased 480 basis points and adjusted gross profit margin decreased 270 basis points, predominantly on lower production volumes, and unfavorable foreign exchange. The decrease in margins was partially offset by business optimization program savings and manufacturing efficiency improvements of nearly $6 million.
Segment results include a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $55 million, reflecting current market conditions, including the uncertainties related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Results also include: $10.4 million in charges consisting of: $6.2 million for the consolidation of the company’s residential engine manufacturing facilities; $3.3 million in business optimization charges; and a $0.9 million charge related to the company’s strategic repositioning plan.
GAAP engineering, selling, general and administrative expenses (ESG&A) declined by $3.3 million. Adjusted ESG&A decreased $0.4 million.

Third Quarter Highlights

Net sales decreased by $42 million, or 15%, on lower shipments of turf and job site products as well as lower sales of portable generators. The company estimates that the COVID-19 pandemic reduced segment sales by approximately $30 million. The impact of the pandemic on segment income is estimated at approximately $7 million.
Gross profit percentage on a GAAP basis decreased by 120 basis points from a year ago. The adjusted gross profit percentage decreased 150 basis points, principally related to unfavorable sales mix, including the impact of COVID-19, which predominantly impacted turf product sales through the company’s independent dealer channel, higher material costs and unfavorable foreign exchange. Offsetting the decrease in adjusted margin were improved manufacturing efficiencies and business optimization program savings of nearly $5 million.
Segment results include a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $12 million, related to the job site business.
Results also include: $0.5 million in business optimization charges; a $1.7 million charge for litigation settlement, and a $0.3 million charge related to the company’s strategic repositioning plan.
GAAP ESG&A expense decreased $1.3 million from a year ago. Adjusted ESG&A expense of $28.6 million declined $0.2 million from a year ago.






Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Briggs & Stratton Corporation prepares its financial statements using Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). When a company discloses material information containing non-GAAP financial measures, SEC regulations require that the disclosure include a presentation of the most directly comparable GAAP measure and a reconciliation of the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures. Management’s inclusion of non-GAAP financial measures in this release is intended to supplement, not replace, the presentation of the financial results in accordance with GAAP. Briggs & Stratton Corporation management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP financial measures, provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may, or could, have a disproportionately positive or negative impact on results in any particular period. Management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enhance the ability of investors to analyze the company’s business trends and to understand the company’s performance. In addition, management may utilize non-GAAP financial measures as a guide in the company’s forecasting, budgeting and long-term planning process. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP. The following tables are reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures:
