SARASOTA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Helios Technologies, Inc. (formerly known as Sun Hydraulics Corporation) (Nasdaq:SNHY) (“Helios” or the “Company”), a global industrial technology leader that develops and manufactures solutions for both the hydraulics and electronics markets, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 30, 2019. The results include Faster Group since its acquisition on April 5, 2018 and Custom Fluidpower (CFP) since its acquisition on August 1, 2018.

Wolfgang Dangel, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We continue to make steady progress with our strategic initiatives. After absorbing the two major acquisitions we made last year in Europe and Asia-Pacific, we recorded record revenue in both segments in 2018. Our 12-month comprehensive Cartridge Valve Technology (“CVT”) manufacturing consolidation project was completed at the end of the quarter, as planned, resulting in capacity and margin expansion as we moved through the quarter. We experienced some inefficiencies at the beginning of the quarter that impacted gross profit margin, but we were pleased with the progress made for the remainder of the quarter as we worked toward the project completion. We expect the additional capacity to further drive organic revenue growth and margin expansion throughout 2019.

“Now that the CVT manufacturing consolidation project is complete, we can proceed with the CVT engineering center of excellence in the available space in our third Sarasota factory without disruption to the day-to-day operations,” stated Mr. Dangel. “The state-of-the-art engineering center will be the foundation for new, innovative product development in CVT for years to come. The facility transformation, which represents an approximate $10 million investment, has already begun and is planned to be completed in the fourth quarter of this year.”

He added, “In furtherance of our ‘in the region, for the region’ initiative, we have begun producing CVT components from our Faster manufacturing facility near Milan. The purpose of the project is vertical integration in the short-term, with full cartridge valve production capability for the EMEA market as a mid-term goal. This first phase of the project represents cost savings to the CVT business, which we expect to realize in its entirety by mid-2020. Producing valves in Italy was a synergy opportunity identified as part of the Faster acquisition. Faster's strong manufacturing hub in Europe provides a platform for us to eventually make complete cartridges for the European market. Also, we are ahead of our original schedule with our new facility in China and expect to have test and assembly capabilities by the beginning of the third quarter, again furthering our ‘in the region, for the region’ initiative.

“Our new product development investments remain an important priority. On May 1st, our legacy Sun business launched 16 new valves for its FLeX series electro-hydraulics line, expanding its total offering to 41 valves. Development and expansion of this product portfolio allows us to compete in electro-hydraulic applications where we could not before and creates a critical path to systems business,” concluded Mr. Dangel.

See the attached tables for additional important disclosures regarding Helios’s use of non-GAAP adjusted operating income, non-GAAP adjusted operating margin, non-GAAP cash net income, non-GAAP cash EPS, adjusted EBITDA (earnings before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and certain non-recurring charges) and adjusted EBITDA margin (adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of sales) as well as reconciliations of GAAP operating income to non-GAAP adjusted operating income and GAAP net income to non-GAAP cash net income and adjusted EBITDA. Helios believes that, when used in conjunction with measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, non-GAAP measures described above help in the understanding of its operating performance.


  • Acquisition growth – Faster and CFP contributed $49.0 million
  • Organic growth – 2%, excluding the effect of currency
  • Foreign currency translation on organic sales – $1.3 million unfavorable
  • Foreign currency translation on acquired businesses’ sales – $2.4 million unfavorable (compared with exchange rates in effect at the respective acquisition dates)

Profits and margins

  • Gross profit and margin drivers – Acquisitions, price increases and cost management efforts, partially offset by lower productivity early in the quarter related to the CVT manufacturing consolidation project
  • Selling, engineering and administrative (SEA) expenses – Increased primarily due to Faster and CFP acquisitions; improved as a percent of sales
  • Acquisition-related amortization of intangible assets – $4.5 million ($2.0 million in prior year)
  • Other operating profit and margin factors – Last year included $1.2 million for acquisition and financing related expenses

Non-operating items

  • Net interest expense – Higher due to debt to fund the Faster and CFP acquisitions
  • Effective tax rate – 22.1%, down from 25.1% from last year

EPS, Non-GAAP cash EPS and adjusted EBITDA

  • Driven by growth and operational performance noted above

Hydraulics Segment Review
(Refer to sales by geographic region and segment data in accompanying tables)

Segment sales of $116.5 million increased 86% over the prior-year first quarter. The $53.9 million increase included $49.0 million from the Faster and CFP businesses, and 8% of organic growth. Organic growth was driven by demand in all geographies and price increases. Orders continued to outpace revenue. The CVT manufacturing consolidation project was completed at the end of the quarter; expanded capacity and improved profit margins are expected as 2019 progresses. Foreign currency translation for the Sun Hydraulics business had a $1.0 million unfavorable impact compared with the 2018 first quarter.

First quarter 2019 gross margin of 36.6% was down slightly from the prior year’s 37.4%. While the Faster business demonstrated strong gross margin achievement in the quarter, the inclusion of CFP unfavorably affected the quarter by 100 basis points due to the nature of their value-add integrator business model. The remainder of the segment was up 20 basis points despite a slow start in January for the organic CVT business.

Higher SEA expenses in the 2019 first quarter included $8.2 million for the Faster and CFP businesses.

As a result of the above, first quarter operating income grew 78% to $23.8 million, representing 20.4% of sales, compared with 21.4% last year.

Electronics Segment Review
(Refer to sales by geographic region and segment data in accompanying tables)

Segment sales were $30.4 million for the 2019 first quarter, a 12% decrease compared with the first quarter of last year. The decline was due to timing of OEM customer model year rollouts and some softening end market conditions. Foreign currency translation had a $0.3 million unfavorable impact on segment sales in the quarter.

First quarter 2019 gross margin improved substantially to 45.7%, up from 40.9% last year. Productivity efficiency and cost management efforts drove the improvement in margin.

SEA costs increased by $0.3 million in the quarter compared with last year.

First quarter operating income was $6.5 million, or 21.4%, compared with $7.1 million, or 20.5%, in last year’s first quarter. This was driven primarily by the improved gross margin.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Review

Total debt was $338.0 million at March 30, 2019, down from $352.7 million at the end 2018, further improving the net debt to EBITDA ratio to 2.3x. Cash and cash equivalents at March 30, 2019 were $16.8 million, down from $23.5 million at December 29, 2018.

Cash provided by operations was $19.8 million and $14.7 million in the first quarters of 2019 and 2018, respectively. The increase was primarily due to higher cash from earnings, partially offset by a net increase in working capital.

Capital expenditures were $8.8 million and $4.2 million for the first quarters of 2019 and 2018, respectively. The increase was primarily for manufacturing technology enhancements, equipment to complete the Company’s CVT manufacturing consolidation project in Sarasota, machinery and leasehold improvements for the Company’s new China facility, and the addition of the Faster business. Capital expenditures in 2019 are estimated to be $30 million to $35 million, in support of the Company’s ongoing investments to drive its innovative leadership.

2019 Outlook and Guidance

The Company updated its guidance for 2019:

      Previous 2019     Updated 2019     Change
Guidance Guidance vs 2018 Actual
Consolidated revenue $590 - $600 million $580 - $590 million 14% - 16%
Hydraulics segment revenue $464 - $469 million $464 - $469 million 21% - 23%
Electronics segment revenue $126 - $131 million $116 - $121 million (4%) - (8%)
GAAP EPS $2.10 - $2.20 $2.10 - $2.20 41% - 48%
Non-GAAP cash EPS $2.55 - $2.65 $2.55 - $2.65 11% - 15%
Adjusted EBITDA margin 24.5% - 25.5% 24.0% - 24.5% (50) - 0 bps

Mr. Dangel noted, “Our updated 2019 consolidated revenue guidance demonstrates growth over 2018 revenue. We reiterate our Hydraulics Segment revenue guidance. Our strong backlog and the completion of our CVT manufacturing consolidation project give us confidence to maintain Hydraulics revenue guidance for the year, even though we are starting to see slower growth in certain industries and geographies.”

He added, “In Electronics, after organic growth of greater than 50% over the past two years since acquisition, we initiated an intentional shift in our customer base which materialized in the first quarter. We believe this change is in the best interest of our long-term business and positions us to take market share. This initiative includes the release of certain contractual obligations to customers that allows us to leverage all products to a broader and more diversified customer base. While this is temporarily dampening Electronics sales for 2019, it gives us the ability to secure new and important customer commitments for the start of production in 2020 and 2021.

“In the overall macroeconomic environment, agriculture, oil and gas, recreational and, most recently, construction and material handling end markets are softening,” stated Dangel. “There has been a shift in the outlook of these markets over the last few months that has caused us to take a closer look at our expectations.”

Mr. Dangel concluded, “We have revised our adjusted EBITDA margin to reflect the lower top line guidance. Our GAAP EPS and Non-GAAP Cash EPS remain the same even on the lower overall sales estimates, benefiting from a reduction in our depreciation estimates for the year. Our focus remains on making investments to further globalize our business, advancing our state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies, and introducing innovative market-leading products and solutions that result in market share gains. We reiterate the goals we established for Vision 2025.”

Adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, cash net income and cash net income per diluted share are not measures determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, commonly known as GAAP. Nevertheless, Helios believes that providing non-GAAP information such as adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, cash net income and cash net income per diluted share are important for investors and other readers of Helios’s financial statements, as they are used as analytical indicators by Helios’s management to better understand operating performance. Because adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, cash net income and cash net income per diluted share are non-GAAP measures and are thus susceptible to varying calculations, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, cash net income and cash net income per diluted share, as presented, may not be directly comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies.
