Titan Machinery Inc. (Nasdaq: TITN), a leading network of full-service agricultural and construction equipment stores, today reported financial results for the fiscal second quarter ended July 31, 2020.

David Meyer, Titan Machinery’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We generated a solid second quarter top and bottom line performance amid an uncertain environment, which demonstrates the sustainability of our business due to our committed employees along with our strong equipment, parts and service offering. Our Agriculture segment produced 9.3% growth in pre-tax income driven primarily by continued strength in our parts and service businesses. Considering the challenging industry conditions created from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are also pleased with the performance of our Construction and International segments. These results wouldn't be possible without the resolve from our store operations teams that are delivering uninterrupted customer service, while maintaining the safety of their fellow co-workers and our customers."

Fiscal 2021 Second Quarter Results

Consolidated ResultsFor the second quarter of fiscal 2021, revenue was $303.5 million, compared to $315.0 million in the second quarter last year. Equipment sales were $202.7 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to $214.4 million in the second quarter last year. Parts sales were $61.5 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to $59.2 million in the second quarter last year. Revenue generated from service was $28.0 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to $26.8 million in the second quarter last year. Revenue from rental and other was $11.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to $14.5 million in the second quarter last year.

Gross profit for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 was $62.7 million, compared to $64.0 million in the second quarter last year. Gross profit margin increased 40 basis points to 20.7% versus the comparable period last year. The increase in gross profit margin was primarily due to an increased mix of higher margin parts and service business, as compared to the second quarter of last year.

Operating expenses decreased by $1.8 million to $53.1 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to $54.9 million in the second quarter last year.  Operating expenses as a percentage of sales increased slightly to 17.5% for the second quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to 17.4% of revenue in the prior year period due to lower revenue. 

Floorplan and other interest expense was $1.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to $2.4 million for the same period last year. The decrease was due to a lower interest rate environment as well as a lower interest rate spread under our new five-year Amended and Restated Credit Agreement that was finalized in April 2020.

In the second quarter of fiscal 2021, net income was $6.4 million, or earnings per diluted share of $0.28, compared to net income of $5.5 million, or earnings per diluted share of $0.25, for the second quarter of last year.

On an adjusted basis, net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 was $6.6 million, or adjusted earnings per diluted share of $0.29, compared to adjusted net income of $6.9 million, or adjusted earnings per diluted share of $0.31, for the second quarter of last year.

Adjusted EBITDA was $15.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to $15.4 million in the second quarter of last year.

Segment ResultsAgriculture Segment - Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 was $169.1 million, compared to $165.7 million in the second quarter last year. The increase in revenue was driven by on-going momentum in parts and service business. Pre-tax income for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 was $6.8 million, compared to $6.2 million of pre-tax income in the second quarter last year.

Construction Segment - Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 was $77.7 million, compared to $84.0 million in the second quarter last year. The decrease in revenue was primarily the result of lower equipment and rental demand due to COVID-19 related macroeconomic challenges and uncertainty.  Pre-tax income for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 was $1.4 million, compared to a pre-tax income of $1.3 million in the second quarter last year.

International Segment - Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 was $56.7 million, compared to $65.3 million in the second quarter last year. Lower revenue was driven by decreased customer demand due to below average small grain yields in certain areas of our International footprint as well as overall challenging economic and business conditions due to COVID-19. Pre-tax loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 was $0.4 million, compared to income of $0.5 million in the second quarter last year.  Adjusted pre-tax loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 was $0.6 million, compared to adjusted pre-tax income of $0.4 million in the second quarter last year.

Fiscal 2021 First Six Months Results

Revenue was $613.7 million for the first six months of fiscal 2021, compared to $593.3 million for the same period last year. Net income for the first six months of fiscal 2021 was $8.7 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, compared to a net income of $5.1 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, for the same period last year. On an adjusted basis, net income for the first six months of fiscal 2021 was $10.0 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, compared to an adjusted net income of $7.3 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, in the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA was $26.9 million in the first six months of fiscal 2021, compared to $22.6 million in the same period last year.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

Cash at the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2021 was $44.5 million. Inventories decreased to $570.7 million as of July 31, 2020, compared to $597.4 million as of January 31, 2020. This inventory decrease includes a $33.2 million decrease in equipment inventory, which reflects a decrease in new equipment inventory of $23.9 million and a $9.3 million decrease in used equipment inventory. Outstanding floorplan payables were $352.2 million on $763.0 million total available floorplan lines of credit as of July 31, 2020, compared to $371.8 million outstanding floorplan payables as of January 31, 2020.

In the first six months of fiscal 2021, net cash provided by operating activities was $13.0 million, compared to net cash used for $6.3 million in the first six months of fiscal 2020. The Company evaluates its cash flow from operating activities net of all floorplan payable activity and maintaining a constant level of equity in its equipment inventory. Taking these adjustments into account, adjusted net cash provided by operating activities was $16.1 million in the first six months of fiscal 2021, compared to adjusted net cash used for operating activities of $49.3 million in the first six months of fiscal 2020.

Mr. Meyer concluded, "Our business remains in a strong financial position, bolstered by an improving inventory position and the additional flexibility and favorable terms of our recently amended credit agreement. Our team has met the recent challenges by successfully reducing expenses and strengthening our balance sheet.  Due to the solid first half of fiscal 2021 and our belief in a stabilizing Agriculture business, we are introducing our modeling assumptions for full year fiscal 2021 for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic began.  We continue to maintain our focus on long-term growth initiatives and are grateful to our employees who help us execute these strategies every day."

Fiscal 2021 Modeling Assumptions

The Company is introducing annual modeling assumptions for fiscal year 2021. The Company will provide additional statements regarding expectations for the remainder of fiscal year 2021 on its conference call hosted today.  We believe modeling assumptions will continue to be impacted by the challenging global economy due to the COVID-19 pandemic, creating a higher degree of uncertainty in these assumptions compared to a normal environment.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Within this release, the Company refers to certain adjusted financial measures, which have directly comparable GAAP financial measures as identified in this release. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when reviewed in conjunction with GAAP financial measures, can provide more information to assist investors in evaluating current period performance and in assessing future performance. For these reasons, internal management reporting also includes non-GAAP financial measures. Generally, the non-GAAP financial measures include adjustments for items such as costs associated with impairment charges, Ukraine remeasurement and some of the charges associated with our Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system transition. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not superior to or as a substitute for the GAAP financial measures presented in this release and the Company's financial statements and other publicly filed reports. Non-GAAP measures presented in this release may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of adjusted financial measures used in this release to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. These reconciliations are attached to this release. The tables included in the Non-GAAP Reconciliations section reconcile adjusted net income (loss), adjusted EBITDA, adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share, adjusted income (loss) before income taxes, and adjusted net cash provided by (used for) operating activities (all non-GAAP financial measures) for the periods presented, to their respective most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
