The Brink’s Company (NYSE:BCO), the global leader in total cash management, route-based secure logistics and payment solutions, today announced results for the second quarter of 2021, which are summarized below.
(In millions, except for per share amounts) Second-Quarter 2021    
  GAAP   Change   Non-GAAP   Change   Constant Currency Change(b)
Revenue $ 1,049     27 %   $ 1,049     27 %   22 %
Operating Profit $ 73     fav     $ 111     51 %   48 %
Operating Margin 7.0 %   710 bps     10.5 %   160 bps     180 bps  
Net Income / Adjusted EBITDA(a) $ 24     85 %   $ 166     39 %   35 %
EPS $ 0.47     74 %   $ 1.18     62 %   56 %
                                 

(a) The non-GAAP financial metric, adjusted EBITDA, is presented with its corresponding GAAP metric, net income attributable to Brink's.(b) Constant currency represents 2021 results at 2020 exchange rates.

Doug Pertz, president and chief executive officer, said: “Our second-quarter results clearly demonstrate the strong recovery of our business from the pandemic-related lows of 2020.   On a comparable basis, in local currency, second-quarter revenue has recovered to 97% of 2019 pre-Covid levels, 92% on a U.S. dollar basis.   We expect continued revenue recovery in the second half to provide a strong jumping off point for 2022, when our full-year revenue is expected to exceed comparable 2019 pre-Covid revenue levels. Our preliminary targets for 2022 continue to include adjusted EBITDA growth in the mid-teens to a range between $785 million and $825 million, and free cash flow growth to a range between $350 million and $400 million, or approximately 50% of adjusted EBITDA.

“Our strong results thus far in 2021 reflect the resiliency of our business and the continuing strength of global cash usage, despite the unexpected extension of pandemic-related shutdowns, most notably in Europe and Latin America. Given the year-to-date impact of the pandemic, and the uncertainty regarding its future impact, we now expect full-year 2021 revenue growth in the mid-to-high teens, which is in the lower half of our guidance range. We continue to expect earnings to be around the mid-point of the range, reflecting higher margins.

“We expect margin expansion to continue into 2022, when we expect to add another layer of organic growth with new digital solutions that make cash easier to manage, safer and more efficient for both retailers and financial institutions. We look forward to sharing the details behind our core and digital strategies, including 2023 financial targets, during our Investor Day event in early December.”

Free cash flow before dividends           185 – 275
             
Adjusted EBITDA           660 – 750
             
Adjusted EBITDA margin           15.7% – 16.3%
             

Amounts may not add due to rounding

(a) The 2021 Non-GAAP outlook amounts exclude certain forecasted Non-GAAP adjusting items, such as intangible asset amortization and U.S. retirement plan costs. We have not forecasted the impact of highly inflationary accounting on our Argentina operations in 2021 or other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items for which the timing and amounts are currently under review, such as future restructuring actions. We have also not forecasted changes in cash held for customer obligations or proceeds from the sale of property, equipment and investments in 2021. The 2021 Non-GAAP outlook amounts for operating profit, EPS from continuing operations, free cash flow before dividends and Adjusted EBITDA cannot be reconciled to GAAP without unreasonable effort. We cannot reconcile these amounts to GAAP because we are unable to accurately forecast the impact of highly inflationary accounting on our Argentina operations in 2021 or other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items for which the timing and amounts are currently under review, such as future restructuring actions. We are also unable to forecast changes in cash held for customer obligations or proceeds from the sale of property, equipment and investments in 2021.(b) The 2021 GAAP outlook excludes any forecasted impact from highly inflationary accounting on our Argentina operations as well as other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items for which the timing and amounts are currently under review, such as future restructuring actions.The Brink’s Company and subsidiaries(In millions, except for per share amounts) (Unaudited)

Amounts may not add due to rounding.(a) Non-GAAP amounts include the impact of prior year comparable period results for acquired and disposed businesses. GAAP results also include the impact of acquisition-related intangible amortization, restructuring and other charges, and disposition related gains/losses.(b) The amounts in the “Currency” column consist of the effects of Argentina devaluations under highly inflationary accounting and the sum of monthly currency changes. Monthly currency changes represent the accumulation throughout the year of the impact on current period results from changes in foreign currency rates from the prior year period.(c) Corporate expenses are not allocated to segment results. Corporate expenses include salaries and other costs to manage the global business and to perform activities required of public companies.(d) See pages 6-7 for more information.(e) Non-GAAP results are reconciled to applicable GAAP results on pages 8-10.(f)  Attributable to Brink's. (g) Segment revenues equal our total reported non-GAAP revenues.(h) In the first quarter of 2021, we changed the method for calculating the allowance for doubtful accounts of the North America segment’s U.S. business. This change in method resulted in a $12.3 million operating profit increase in the segment, which was offset by a $12.3 million increase to Corporate expense, resulting in no impact to consolidated operating profit for the quarter. Historically, all Brink’s business units followed an internal Company policy for determining an allowance for doubtful accounts and the allowances were then reconciled to the required U.S. GAAP estimated consolidated allowance, with any differences reported as part of Corporate expense. Other than for the U.S. business, the reconciling differences were not significant. We changed the U.S. calculation of the allowance in order to more closely align it with the U.S. GAAP consolidated calculation and to minimize reconciling differences, resulting in the offsetting $12.3 million adjustments to align the methods.

This change in method resulted in a $12.3 million operating profit increase in the segment, which was offset by a $12.3 million increase to Corporate expense, resulting in no impact to consolidated operating profit for the quarter. Historically, all Brink’s business units followed an internal Company policy for determining an allowance for doubtful accounts and the allowances were then reconciled to the required U.S. GAAP estimated consolidated allowance, with any differences reported as part of Corporate expense. Other than for the U.S. business, the reconciling differences were not significant. We changed the U.S. calculation of the allowance in order to more closely align it with the U.S. GAAP consolidated calculation and to minimize reconciling differences, resulting in the offsetting $12.3 million adjustments to align the methods.(b) See explanation of items on page 7.

The Brink’s Company and subsidiariesOther Items Not Allocated To Segments (Unaudited)(In millions)

Brink’s measures its segment results before income and expenses for corporate activities and for certain other items. See below for a summary of the other items not allocated to segments.

Reorganization and Restructuring Other Restructurings Management periodically implements restructuring actions in targeted sections of our business. As a result of these actions, we recognized $21.7 million net costs in the first six months of 2021, primarily severance costs. We recognized $66.6 million net costs in operating profit and $0.6 million costs in interest and other nonoperating income (expense) in 2020, primarily severance costs. For the restructuring actions that have not yet been completed, we expect to incur additional costs between $4 million and $6 million in future periods.

Due to the unique circumstances around these charges, these management-directed items have not been allocated to segment results and are excluded from non-GAAP results.

Acquisitions and dispositions Certain acquisition and disposition items that are not considered part of the ongoing activities of the business and are special in nature are consistently excluded from non-GAAP results. These items are described below:

2021 Acquisitions and Dispositions

  • Amortization expense for acquisition-related intangible assets was $22.6 million in the first six months of 2021.
  • We incurred $6.9 million in integration costs, primarily related to G4S, in the first six months of 2021.
  • Transaction costs related to business acquisitions were $4.3 million in the first six months of 2021.
  • Restructuring costs related to acquisitions were $4.6 million in the first six months of 2021.
  • Compensation expense related to the retention of key PAI employees was $0.6 million in the first six months of 2021.

2020 Acquisitions and Dispositions

  • Amortization expense for acquisition-related intangible assets was $35.1 million in 2020.
  • We incurred $23.5 million in integration costs, primarily related to Dunbar and G4S, in 2020.
  • Transaction costs related to business acquisitions were $19.3 million in 2020.
  • Restructuring costs related to acquisitions were $4.7 million in 2020.

Argentina highly inflationary impact Beginning in the third quarter of 2018, we designated Argentina's economy as highly inflationary for accounting purposes. As a result, Argentine peso-denominated monetary assets and liabilities are now remeasured at each balance sheet date to the currency exchange rate then in effect, with currency remeasurement gains and losses recognized in earnings. In addition, nonmonetary assets retain a higher historical basis when the currency is devalued. The higher historical basis results in incremental expense being recognized when the nonmonetary assets are consumed. In the first six months of 2021, we recognized $6.5 million in pretax charges related to highly inflationary accounting, including currency remeasurement losses of $5.0 million. In 2020, we recognized $10.7 million in pretax charges related to highly inflationary accounting, including currency remeasurement losses of $7.7 million. These amounts are excluded from non-GAAP results.

Internal loss A former non-management employee in our U.S. global services operations embezzled funds from Brink's in prior years. Except for a small deductible amount, the amount of the internal loss related to the embezzlement of funds was covered by our insurance. In an effort to cover up the embezzlement, the former employee intentionally misstated the underlying accounts receivable subledger data. In 2020, we incurred an additional $0.3 million in costs related to this activity. In the third quarter of 2019, we were able to identify $4.0 million of revenues billed and collected in prior periods which had never been recorded in the general ledger. We also identified and recorded $0.3 million in bank fees, which had been incurred in prior periods. The rebuild of the subledger was substantially completed during the third quarter of 2019. Based on the reconstructed subledger, we were able to analyze and quantify the uncollected receivables from prior periods. Although we plan to attempt to collect these receivables, we estimated an increase to bad debt expense of $13.7 million in the third quarter of 2019. The estimate of the allowance for doubtful accounts was adjusted in the fourth quarter of 2019 for an additional $6.4 million and again in 2020 for an additional $6.6 million. In the first six months of 2021, we recognized a decrease in bad debt expense of $2.7 million, primarily related to collection of these receivables. This estimate will continue to be adjusted in future periods, if needed, as assumptions related to the collectability of these accounts receivable change. We also recognized $0.9 million of legal charges in the first six months of 2021 as we attempt to collect additional insurance recoveries related to these receivables. At June 30, 2021, we have recorded a $9.5 million allowance on $9.7 million of accounts receivable, or 98%. Due to the unusual nature of this internal loss and the related errors in the subledger data, along with the fact that management has excluded these amounts when evaluating internal performance, we have excluded these net charges from segment and non-GAAP results.

Reporting compliance Certain compliance costs (primarily third party expenses) are excluded from 2020 and the first six months of 2021 non-GAAP results. These costs relate to the implementation and January 1, 2019 adoption of the new lease accounting standard (amounts were not significant in the first six months of 2021and $0.5 million in 2020).

The Brink’s Company and subsidiariesNon-GAAP Results Reconciled to GAAP (Unaudited) (In millions, except for percentages and per share amounts)

Non-GAAP results described in this press release are financial measures that are not required by or presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The purpose of the Non-GAAP results is to report financial information from the primary operations of our business by excluding the effects of certain income and expenses that do not reflect the ordinary earnings of our operations. The specific items excluded have not been allocated to segments, are described on page 7 and in more detail in our Form 10-Q, and are reconciled to comparable GAAP measures below. In addition, we refer to non-GAAP constant currency amounts, which represent current period results and forecasts at prior period exchange rates.

Non-GAAP results adjust the quarterly Non-GAAP tax rates so that the Non-GAAP tax rate in each of the quarters is equal to the full-year estimated Non-GAAP tax rate. The full-year Non-GAAP tax rate in both years excludes certain pretax and income tax amounts. Amounts reported for prior periods have been updated in this report to present information consistently for all periods presented.

The 2021 Non-GAAP outlook amounts for operating profit, EPS from continuing operations, free cash flow before dividends and Adjusted EBITDA cannot be reconciled to GAAP without unreasonable effort. We cannot reconcile these amounts to GAAP because we are unable to accurately forecast the impact of highly inflationary accounting on our Argentina operations or other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items for which the timing and amounts are currently under review, such as future restructuring actions. We are also unable to forecast changes in cash held for customer obligations or proceeds from the sale of property, equipment and investments in 2021. The impact of highly inflationary accounting and other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items could be significant to our GAAP results.

The Non-GAAP financial measures are intended to provide investors with a supplemental comparison of our operating results and trends for the periods presented. Our management believes these measures are also useful to investors as such measures allow investors to evaluate our performance using the same metrics that our management uses to evaluate past performance and prospects for future performance. We do not consider these items to be reflective of our operating performance as they result from events and circumstances that are not a part of our core business. Additionally, non-GAAP results are utilized as performance measures in certain management incentive compensation plans.

Amounts may not add due to rounding. (a) See “Other Items Not Allocated To Segments” on pages 6-7 for details. We do not consider these items to be reflective of our operating performance as they result from events and circumstances that are not a part of our core business.(b) Non-GAAP income from continuing operations and non-GAAP EPS have been adjusted to reflect an effective income tax rate in each interim period equal to the full-year non-GAAP effective income tax rate. The full-year non-GAAP effective tax rate is estimated at 32.0% for 2021 and was 31.8% for 2020.(c) Our U.S. retirement plans are frozen and costs related to these plans are excluded from non-GAAP results. Certain non-U.S. operations also have retirement plans. Settlement charges and curtailment gains related to these non-U.S. plans are also excluded from non-GAAP results.(d) There is no difference between GAAP and non-GAAP share-based compensation amounts for the periods presented.(e) Due to the impact of Argentina highly inflationary accounting, there was a $0.1 million non-GAAP adjustment for a gain in the fourth quarter of 2020. There is no difference between GAAP and non-GAAP marketable securities gain and loss amounts for the periods presented.(f) Adjusted EBITDA is defined as non-GAAP income from continuing operations excluding the impact of non-GAAP interest expense, non-GAAP income tax provision, non-GAAP depreciation and amortization, non-GAAP share-based compensation and non-GAAP marketable securities (gain) loss. (g) Because we reported a loss from continuing operations on a GAAP basis in the third quarter of 2020, GAAP EPS was calculated using basic shares. However, as we reported income from continuing operations on a non-GAAP basis in the third quarter of 2020, non-GAAP EPS was calculated using diluted shares.
