– Revenue for Second Quarter of Fiscal 2023 Increased 31.5% to $496.5 million

– Record Quarterly EPS of $1.10 for Second Quarter of Fiscal 2023 –

– Increases Fiscal 2023 Modeling Assumptions, Expects Fiscal 2023 EPS in Range of $3.70-$4.00

WEST FARGO, N.D., Aug. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — 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, 2022.

David Meyer, Titan Machinery’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are pleased to deliver second quarter earnings per share of $1.10 — which marks the highest quarterly earnings performance in our Company’s history. This is the result of our team’s unrelenting focus on customer service and operating efficiencies, which have translated to a consolidated pre-tax margin of 6.7%. Each of our operating segments contributed to these results, demonstrating our commitment to drive higher rates of pre-tax margin across our entire organization. Our Agriculture segment continues to perform well, and we expect this momentum to continue through the balance of fiscal 2023 with timely deliveries of inventory. Our Construction segment is also experiencing strong equipment demand and notable strength in parts, service and rental resulting in improved pre-tax margin. And, within our International segment, our business is proving to be resilient, particularly within our Ukraine market, where the farming industry has forged ahead with great resolve amid a very turbulent environment due to the ongoing conflict.”

Fiscal 2023 Second Quarter Results

Consolidated ResultsFor the second quarter of fiscal 2023, revenue increased to $496.5 million compared to $377.6 million in the second quarter last year. Equipment sales were $375.2 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2023, compared to $272.7 million in the second quarter last year. Parts sales were $77.7 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2023, compared to $65.3 million in the second quarter last year. Revenue generated from service was $33.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2023, compared to $29.7 million in the second quarter last year. Revenue from rental and other was $10.3 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2023, compared to $9.9 million in the second quarter last year.

Gross profit for the second quarter of fiscal 2023 was $102.7 million, compared to $75.0 million in the second quarter last year. The Company’s gross profit margin increased to 20.7% in the second quarter of fiscal 2023, compared to 19.9% in the second quarter last year. Gross profit margin primarily increased due to stronger equipment margins, which were partially offset by revenue mix, with a greater proportion of equipment revenue in the second quarter of fiscal 2023, versus higher margin parts and service revenue, as compared to the second quarter of the prior year.

Operating expenses increased by $11.8 million to $68.8 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2023, compared to $57.1 million in the second quarter last year, primarily due to higher variable expenses on increased revenues, as well as acquisition related expenses on the Heartland Ag Systems transaction that closed earlier this month. Operating expenses as a percentage of revenue decreased 120 basis points to 13.9% for the second quarter of fiscal 2023, compared to 15.1% of revenue in the prior year period.

Floorplan and other interest expense was $1.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2023, compared to $1.5 million for the same period last year.

In the second quarter of fiscal 2023, net income was $25.0 million, or earnings per diluted share of $1.10, compared to net income of $11.2 million, or earnings per diluted share of $0.50, for the second quarter of last year.

On an adjusted basis, net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2023 was $25.0 million, or adjusted earnings per diluted share of $1.10, compared to adjusted net income of $12.7 million, or adjusted earnings per diluted share of $0.56, for the second quarter of last year.

The Company generated $40.2 million in adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of fiscal 2023, compared to $23.5 million in the second quarter of last year.

Segment ResultsAgriculture Segment – Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2023 was $349.0 million, compared to $219.4 million in the second quarter last year. The sales increase was positively impacted by the acquisitions of Jaycox Implement and Mark’s Machinery, which closed in December 2021 and April 2022, respectively. Pre-tax income for the second quarter of fiscal 2023 was $24.9 million, and included a $2.6 million benefit recognized on the expected achievement of annual manufacturer incentives. This compared to $12.1 million of pre-tax income in the second quarter last year.

Construction Segment – Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2023 was $70.0 million, compared to $80.9 million in the second quarter last year. While revenue was lower versus the prior year period due to the lost sales contributions from the Company’s fiscal 2022 fourth quarter divestiture of construction stores in Montana and Wyoming and our fiscal 2023 first quarter divestiture of our consumer products store in North Dakota, same-store sales increased 14.9%. Pre-tax income for the second quarter of fiscal 2023 was $3.9 million, and compared to $2.8 million in the second quarter last year.

International Segment – Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2023 was $77.6 million, compared to $77.3 million in the second quarter last year, while on a constant currency basis revenue was up $8.8 million or 11.3%. Pre-tax income for the second quarter of fiscal 2023 was $5.9 million. This compares to pre-tax income of $0.4 million in the second quarter last year. Adjusted pre-tax income for the second quarter of fiscal 2023 was $5.9 million, which excludes a negligible adjustment, compared to $1.9 million in the second quarter last year.

Balance Sheet and Cash FlowCash at the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2023 was $142.1 million. Inventories increased to $556.4 million as of July 31, 2022, compared to $421.8 million as of January 31, 2022. This inventory increase includes increases in new equipment inventory of $129.9 million and parts inventory of $13.2 million, which is partially offset by a $9.3 million decrease in used equipment inventory. Outstanding floorplan payables were $274.2 million on $743.0 million total available floorplan lines of credit as of July 31, 2022, compared to $135.4 million outstanding floorplan payables as of January 31, 2022.

In the first six months of fiscal 2023, net cash used for operating activities was $21.0 million, compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $28.6 million in the first six months of fiscal 2022.

Additional Management CommentaryMr. Meyer added, “The integration of our Heartland Ag Systems acquisition is already well underway since closing in early August. Our teams are working hard to efficiently establish a complete distribution model that covers both the farmer and commercial applicator markets. This acquisition provides us the ability to generate significant revenue synergies through equipment packaging opportunities with the commercial applicator customer, and also provides additional avenues of growth as we leverage our expansive parts and service network for the commercial applicator market. We share remarkably similar cultures focused on exceptional customer service and look forward to the Heartland team’s future contributions.”

“We are in a great position to sustain our sales growth and as a result, we are increasing our modeling assumptions for both revenue and earnings per share for the second half of fiscal 2023. The sustained strength of our financial performance over the past two years reflects a combination of strong macro forces and our efficient operating structure. As we look ahead to fiscal 2024, we believe that these dynamics will continue to support a strong agriculture economy. We expect that equipment availability will remain constrained due to ongoing supply chain challenges of our suppliers, together with new cash crop equipment allocations and shorter pricing windows for fiscal 2024. However, we believe that the industry supply limitations and ongoing strong demand will extend the current favorable agriculture industry cycle and create an opportunity for Titan Machinery to continue demonstrating the strong earnings power of our business.”

Fiscal 2023 Modeling AssumptionsThe following are the Company’s current expectations for fiscal 2023 modeling assumptions.

  Current Assumptions   Previous Assumptions
Segment Revenue      
Agriculture(1) Up 50-55%   Up 37-42%
Construction(2) Down 5-10%   Down 10-15%
International(3) Down 0-5%   Down 0-5%
       
Diluted EPS(4) $3.70 – $4.00   $2.90 – $3.20
       
(1) Includes the full year impact of the Jaycox acquisition, which closed in December 2021, the partial year impact of the Mark’s Machinery acquisition, which closed in April 2022, and the expected partial year impact of the Heartland acquisition, which closed in August 2022.
(2) Includes the full year impact of the Montana and Wyoming divestiture in January 2022 and the partial year impact of the North Dakota divestiture in March 2022. Adjusting full year fiscal 2022 revenue by approximately $73 million, representing the fiscal 2022 revenue of these divested stores, results in a same-store sales assumption of up approximately 15-20%.
(3) Includes a reduction in revenue of approximately 45% from our Ukrainian subsidiary compared to fiscal 2022.
(4) Includes an estimated loss of approximately $0.05 per share from our Ukrainian subsidiary.
