Wabash National Corporation Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 Results

Fiscal Year 2012 Record Net Sales of $1.46 Billion; Q4 2012 GAAP EPS of $1.16 and Adjusted EPS of $0.32 per Diluted Share; Acquisition of Beall Assets Completed

LAFAYETTE, IN -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 -- Wabash National Corporation (NYSE: WNC) reported year-over-year and sequential improvement across a number of financial and operating metrics. The Company reported net income of $80.2 million, or $1.16 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2012 on net sales of $416 million. The fourth quarter results included a $59.0 million, or $0.86 per diluted share, income tax benefit primarily related to the reversal of the Company's valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets. Excluding the income tax benefit and other one-time charges of $0.5 million related to the acquisitions of Walker Group Holdings ("Walker") on May 8, 2012 and certain assets of Beall Corporation ("Beall") on February 4, 2013, non-GAAP adjusted earnings were $21.7 million, or $0.32 per diluted share for the quarter as compared to $7.5 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, on net sales of $342 million for the fourth quarter of 2011.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 the Company reported net income of $105.6 million, or $1.53 per diluted share, on net sales of $1.46 billion, compared to net income of $15.0 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, on net sales of $1.19 billion for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011. Results for the twelve months ending December 31, 2012 included one-time charges of $18.2 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, related to the acquisitions of Walker and certain assets of Beall as well as the income tax benefit from the reversal of the Company's valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets. Excluding the impact of these items, non-GAAP adjusted earnings for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 were $64.8 million, or $0.95 per diluted share. Results for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011 included a one-time charge of $0.7 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, related to the early extinguishment of the Company's prior revolving credit facility.

For the second consecutive quarter, the Company reported a record level of income from operations totaling $29.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to income from operations of $8.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. On a non-GAAP basis, the Company's Operating EBITDA, which excludes the effects of certain costs related to the Walker acquisition and Beall asset purchase, improved to $38.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $13.7 million in the prior year period. Full year 2012 Operating EBITDA of $118.5 million represents an increase of $79.7 million, or 206%, compared to 2011 while new trailer shipments decreased approximately 2,000 units. The year-over-year increase in Operating EBITDA is a result of the Company's efforts to improve pricing and margins in the Commercial Trailer Products segment and a result of the efforts to diversify the Company into more stable, higher margin product lines in our Diversified Products segment. A discussion of the Company's use of Operating EBITDA as a non-GAAP measure is included below. A reconciliation of Operating EBITDA to net income is provided in the supplemental schedules included in this release.

The following is a summary of select operating and financial results for the past five quarters:

Walker as well as the purchase of certain assets of Beall.
(2) Net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 includes an income tax benefit
of $59.0 million primarily related to the reversal of a U.S. valuation
allowance against its deferred tax assets.

Dick Giromini, president and chief executive officer, stated, "The execution of our long-term strategy, which is focused on profitable growth, margin improvement through operational excellence initiatives, reducing the volatility of our operating results through diversification initiatives as well as improved balance sheet strength, continues to result in considerable momentum throughout our business. It was a tremendous year of transformation for Wabash National which is highlighted in the year-over-year improvement in our financial results, including both top and bottom-line expansion, and the achievement of record or near-record highs in several key financial metrics. Specifically, 2012 net sales of $1.5 billion set a Company record, while gross margin of 11.2% represents the highest level since 2004 and a year-over-year improvement of 560 basis points or double last year's performance."

Mr. Giromini continued, "New Trailer shipments of 45,600 for the year were slightly below our prior guidance of 46,000 to 48,000 units which was partially mitigated by the continued strong demand for our non-trailer products during the quarter. As we look forward to 2013 with a healthy backlog of orders totaling $666 million, a trailer demand forecast above replacement levels for the second consecutive year driven by key drivers such as fleet age and size, customer profitability, used trailer values and regulatory compliance, a full year of Walker in the portfolio as well as our continued efforts to optimize our manufacturing processes while also remaining selective in our order acceptance, we believe 2013 has the potential to be another record year for Wabash National."

Fourth Quarter 2012 Business Segment Highlights

The table below is a summary of select segment operating and financial results prior to the elimination of intersegment sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 and 2011, respectively. A complete disclosure of the results by individual segment is included in the tables following this release. In the fourth quarter of 2012, six tank trailer parts and service retail locations, which had previously been reported as part of the Diversified Products segment, are being reported as part of the Retail segment in order to match how these locations are being managed internally which is focused on leveraging our combined market and operational synergies.

Commercial Trailer Products' net sales decreased $49.7 million or 16.1 percent compared to fourth quarter last year as new trailer sales decreased 3,400 units to 10,200. However, consistent with the Company's efforts to recover material cost increases through improved product pricing, average selling prices increased $2,300, or 10.7 percent, during the fourth quarter of 2012 as compared to the prior year period. As a result, gross margin improved 330 basis points to 7.3 percent year-over-year. Operating income increased to $12.8 million, which is $5.3 million higher than fourth quarter of 2011, and reinforces the success of the Company's strategy to improve margins and pursue operational efficiencies.

Diversified Products' net sales increased $111.1 million, or 344 percent, as the inclusion of Walker contributed $122.5 million in the current quarter. Gross margin improved from 18.3 percent to 21.5 percent driven by the addition of Walker, productivity improvements realized in our Wabash Wood Products business and continued contribution from Wabash Composites. As a result, operating income in the fourth quarter of 2012 increased $15.3 million as compared to the same period last year.

Retail net sales increased $14.1 million, or 43.4 percent, as the result of increased new trailer shipments as compared to the prior year period, as well as the inclusion of six tank trailer parts and service retail locations, which accounted for approximately $7.5 million of net sales for the fourth quarter of 2012. Gross margin of 10.5 percent increased 300 basis points from the prior year period due to the lower mix of new trailer sales. Operating income improved $0.9 million with the additional locations, as well as favorable parts and service volume during the current quarter.

Income Taxes

In accordance with accounting guidelines, the Company regularly reviews all deferred tax assets to estimate whether these assets will be realized. During the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company determined it was more likely than not that it will be able to utilize deferred tax assets consisting primarily of net operating loss ("NOL") carryforwards which had previously been offset by valuation allowances. As a result, the Company recognized an income tax benefit of $59.0 million primarily related to the reversal of valuation allowances against its U.S. Federal deferred tax assets and a portion of its state deferred tax assets.

In prior periods, the valuation allowances available on NOLs significantly reduced the Company's effective tax rate. As a result of reversing the tax valuation allowance, the Company anticipates an increase in future income tax expense and estimates that its effective tax rate will be approximately 40% for 2013. The Company's Federal NOL position as of December 31, 2012 is approximately $111 million, of which $92 million is available for utilization in 2013. As a result, the Company does not expect a material change to its cash taxes paid in 2013 as compared to 2012.

Beall Asset Purchase

On January 25, 2013, the Company announced that it agreed to acquire certain assets of the tank and trailer business of Beall for approximately $15 million as part of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy process, which the Bankruptcy Court subsequently approved. On February 4, 2013, the Company successfully closed the transaction and began the process of rebuilding and growing this business. The Beall purchased assets, including the Beall brand, are a strong fit within the Diversified Products segment and are expected to provide growth opportunities via new products, new markets and geographic expansion.

As of December 31, 2012, our liquidity position, defined as cash on hand and available borrowing capacity, totaled approximately $224 million reflecting an increase from the previous quarter of $42 million. Subsequent to closing on the acquisition of certain assets of Beall, the Company's liquidity was approximately $200 million.

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 contain non-GAAP financial measures, including Operating EBITDA, adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per diluted share.

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, and reconciliations to GAAP financial statements should be carefully evaluated.

Operating EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, and other non-operating income and expense, as well as certain charges in connection with the Company's acquisitions of Walker and Beall. Management believes Operating EBITDA provides useful information to investors regarding the results of operations. The Company provides this measure because it believes it is useful for investors to understand the performance period to period with the exclusion of the recurring and non-recurring items identified above. Management believes the presentation of Operating EBITDA, when combined with the primary GAAP presentation of operating income, is beneficial to an investor's understanding of the Company's operating performance. A reconciliation of Operating EBITDA to net income is included in the tables following this release.

Adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per diluted share reflect adjustments for non-recurring charges related to expenses in connection with the Company's acquisitions of Walker and certain assets of Beall, as well as the impact of the release of the valuation allowances recorded against the Company's net deferred tax assets. Management believes providing these measures and excluding the impact of the non-recurring expenses and benefits attributable to the acquisitions of Walker and certain assets of Beall, as well as the impact of the release of valuation allowances, facilitates comparisons to the Company's prior year periods and provides a consistent basis for comparing results from one period to another. Also, when combined with the primary GAAP presentation of net income and diluted net income per share, these measures are beneficial to an investor's understanding of the Company's performance. A reconciliation of adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per diluted share to net income and diluted net income per share is included in the tables following this release.
