  • Operating income of $22.7 million on a GAAP basis or $20.8 million on a non-GAAP adjusted basis

  • Backlog of $1.3 billion up 77% YoY; outperforms normal sequential seasonality
  • 2021 EPS outlook maintained, updated for divestiture impact at $0.72 per diluted share; range of $0.67 to $0.77

LAFAYETTE, Ind., July 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wabash National Corporation (NYSE: WNC), the innovation leader of engineered solutions for the transportation, logistics and distribution industries, today reported results for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Net sales for the second quarter 2021 of $449.4 million increased 32.5% versus the prior year quarter as the company continued to scale its ability to serve strong customer demand. Consolidated gross profit was $55.6 million, or 12.4% of sales. Operating income was $22.7 million, or 5.0% of sales during the quarter. On a non-GAAP adjusted basis, operating income was $20.8 million. GAAP earnings per share were $0.24, or $0.21, on a non-GAAP adjusted basis.

Total company backlog as of June 30, 2021 was approximately $1.3 billion. Normal seasonal order patterns generally dictate that the backlog declines sequentially in Q2; however, during the second quarter of 2021, the backlog softened less than usual and remained up 77% compared to June of 2020.

“While the manufacturing environment continued to be broadly challenging during the second quarter, Wabash National is successfully navigating the issues created by labor scarcity and material cost increases compounded by exceptionally strong demand in our industry and in the economy as a whole,” explained Brent Yeagy, president and chief executive officer. “Our strong financial results are a testament to our employees' dedication to serve our customers as well as our diligent cost control through the year.”

For the full year ending December 31, 2021, the company maintained its EPS outlook and updated it for the impact of the divestiture of Extract Technology, which closed on June 30, 2021. The midpoint for earnings per diluted share is anticipated to be $0.72 with a range of $0.67 to $0.77.

“We are pleased that new trailer shipments remain on an upward trajectory and that the ramp in trailer production continues to meet our expectations. Freight markets remain very strong and our customers are looking to trailers as a way to address intensified driver shortages and network imbalances. We will continue to manage through short-term commodity headwinds and labor challenges as we work toward maximizing our factory capacity and positioning ourselves to capitalize on continued strong customer demand in 2021 and beyond.”

Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to disclosing financial results calculated in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the financial information included in this release contains non-GAAP financial measures, including operating EBITDA, free cash flow, adjusted operating income (loss), adjusted net income (loss), adjusted earnings per share, adjusted segment EBITDA, and adjusted segment EBITDA margin. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures and results calculated in accordance with GAAP, including net income (loss), and reconciliations to GAAP financial statements should be carefully evaluated.

Operating EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, impairment and other, net, and other non-operating income and expense. Management believes providing operating EBITDA is useful for investors to understand the Company’s performance and results of operations period to period with the exclusion of the items identified above. Management believes the presentation of operating EBITDA, when combined with the GAAP presentations of operating income (loss) and net income (loss), is beneficial to an investor’s understanding of the Company’s operating performance. A reconciliation of operating EBITDA to net income (loss) is included in the tables following this release.

Free cash flow is defined as net cash (used in) provided by operating activities minus capital expenditures. Management believes providing free cash flow is useful for investors to understand the Company’s performance and results of cash generation period to period with the exclusion of the item identified above. Management believes the presentation of free cash flow, when combined with the GAAP presentations of cash provided by operating activities, is beneficial to an investor’s understanding of the Company’s operating performance. A reconciliation of free cash flow to cash (used in) provided by operating activities is included in the tables following this release.

Adjusted operating income (loss), a non-GAAP financial measure, excludes certain costs, expenses, other charges, gains or income that are included in the determination of operating income (loss) under U.S. GAAP, but that management would not consider important in evaluating the quality of the Company’s operating results as they are not indicative of the Company’s core operating results or may obscure trends useful in evaluating the Company’s continuing activities. Accordingly, the Company presents adjusted operating income (loss) excluding these special items to help investors evaluate our operating performance and trends in our business consistent with how management evaluates such performance and trends. Further, the Company presents adjusted operating income (loss) to provide investors with a better understanding of the Company’s view of our results as compared to prior periods. A reconciliation of adjusted operating income (loss) to operating income (loss), the most comparable GAAP financial measure, is included in the tables following this release.

Adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted earnings per diluted (2021) and basic (2020) share reflect adjustments for the impact of sales and divestitures, debt transactions, and non-cash impairment, and the related tax effects of these adjustments. Management believes providing adjusted measures and excluding certain items facilitates comparisons to the Company’s prior year periods and, when combined with the GAAP presentation of net income (loss) and diluted (2021) and basic (2020) net income (loss) per share, is beneficial to an investor’s understanding of the Company’s performance.

Adjusted segment EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is calculated by adding back segment depreciation and amortization expense to segment operating income (loss), and excludes certain costs, expenses, other charges, gains or income that are included in the determination of operating income (loss) under GAAP, but that management would not consider important in evaluating the quality of the Company’s segment operating results as they are not indicative of each segment's core operating results or may obscure trends useful in evaluating the segment's continuing activities. Adjusted segment EBITDA Margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted segment EBITDA by segment total net sales. A reconciliation of adjusted segment EBITDA to income (loss) from operations is included in the tables following this release.

1 Operating EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, impairment and other, net, and other non-operating income and expense. Management believes providing operating EBITDA is useful for investors to understand the Company’s performance and results of operations period to period with the exclusion of the items identified above. Management believes the presentation of operating EBITDA, when combined with the GAAP presentations of operating income (loss) and net income (loss), is beneficial to an investor’s understanding of the Company’s operating performance.
2 Adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted earnings per diluted (2021) and basic (2020) share reflect adjustments for the impact of sales and divestitures, debt transactions, and non-cash impairment, and the related tax effects of these adjustments. Management believes providing adjusted measures and excluding certain items facilitates comparisons to the Company’s prior year periods and, when combined with the GAAP presentation of net income (loss) and diluted (2021) and basic (2020) net income (loss) per share, is beneficial to an investor’s understanding of the Company’s performance.
