Wabash National Corporation: Wabash Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2023 Results

  • Quarterly revenue of $596 million
  • Quarterly operating income of $61.1 million with operating margin of 10.3%
  • Quarterly earnings per diluted share of $1.07
  • Total backlog steady at $1.9 billion; 12-month backlog up $100 million sequentially to $1.6 billion
  • 2024 Outlook initiated with midpoints of $2.3 billion revenue and diluted earnings per share of $2.25

LAFAYETTE, Ind., Feb. 01, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wabash (NYSE: WNC), the innovation leader of connected solutions for the transportation, logistics and distribution industries, today reported results for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2023.

For the fourth quarter of 2023, net sales were $596 million. Operating income was $61.1 million, or 10.3% of sales. The Company's tax rate was lower than usual during the fourth quarter primarily as a result of benefit from R&D tax credits. Net income attributable to common stockholders was $50.4 million, or $1.07 per diluted share. For the full year 2023, revenue totaled $2.5 billion with operating income of $311.9 million, or 12.3% of sales. Full year net income attributable to common stockholders was $231.3 million, or $4.81 per diluted share. The Company achieved annual records for sales, operating income and EPS in 2023.

Operating EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure that excludes the effects of certain items, for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $76.8 million, or 12.9% of net sales, and full year operating EBITDA was $369.3 million, or 14.6% of net sales.

Total Company backlog as of December 31, 2023 was approximately $1.9 billion, which was steady compared to the prior quarter. Backlog expected to be shipped within the following 12-months was $1.6 billion as of December 31, 2023 - a $100 million increase from the prior quarter.

"During 2023 we've substantially exceeded the financial performance in any year of the company's history," explained Brent Yeagy, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Beyond our financial accomplishments, I'm even more excited about the strategic progress we made during 2023 and how it positions us to generate stronger results going forward for our employees, our customers and our other stakeholders. Our execution is allowing us to achieve higher levels of financial performance through all phases of the cycle and we are confident that when market conditions strengthen for our customers, we will deliver financial performance that exceeds 2023."

Outlook

For the full year ending December 31, 2024, the Company has issued guidance with sales in the range of $2.2 billion to $2.4 billion with a midpoint of $2.3 billion and earnings per diluted share of $2.00 to $2.50 with a midpoint of $2.25.

Mr. Yeagy continued, "While we expect a moderation in 2024 financial performance relative to 2023, it's important to note that the midpoint of our 2024 EPS guidance would still represent the 2nd best EPS generation in our company's history and would easily be the best results achieved during a year of declining revenue. We're poised to demonstrate the company's resilience through 2024 as our meaningful backlog and a strong balance sheet give us confidence to continue at full speed with our strategic growth initiatives."

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 and margin, adjusted net income attributable to common stockholders, adjusted diluted 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, and reconciliations to GAAP financial statements should be carefully evaluated.

Operating EBITDA includes noncontrolling interest & excludes loss from unconsolidated entity and is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, impairment and other, net, and other non-operating income and expense (including any loss on debt extinguishment charges). 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 and net income, is beneficial to an investor's understanding of the Company's operating performance. A reconciliation of operating EBITDA to net income, the most comparable GAAP financial measure, is included in the tables following this release.

Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities minus cash payments for capital expenditures minus expenditures for revenue generating assets. 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 (used in) operating activities, is beneficial to an investor's understanding of the Company's operating performance.

Adjusted operating income and margin, non-GAAP financial measures, exclude certain costs, expenses, other charges, gains or income that are included in the determination of operating income 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 and margin 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 and margin to provide investors with a better understanding of the Company's view of our results as compared to prior periods. Adjusted operating income margin is calculated by dividing adjusted operating income by total net sales. A reconciliation of adjusted operating income to operating income, the most comparable GAAP financial measure, is included in the tables following this release. There are no adjustments for any period presented.

Adjusted net income attributable to common stockholders and adjusted diluted earnings per share reflect adjustments for non-cash impairment, debt transactions, and the impact of sales and divestitures, 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 and diluted net income per share, is beneficial to an investor's understanding of the Company's performance. A reconciliation of adjusted net income attributable to common stockholders and adjusted diluted earnings per share to net income attributable to common stockholders and diluted earnings per share, the most comparable GAAP financial measures, are included in the tables following this release.

Adjusted segment EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, includes noncontrolling interest & excludes loss from unconsolidated entity and is calculated by adding back segment depreciation and amortization expense to segment operating income, and excludes certain costs, expenses, other charges, gains or income that are included in the determination of operating income 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 from operations, the most comparable GAAP financial measure, is included in the tables following this release.

Information reconciling any forward-looking Operating EBITDA, Operating EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Operating Income Margin, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, and Adjusted EPS to GAAP financial measures is unavailable to us without unreasonable effort. We cannot provide reconciliations of the above noted forward looking non-GAAP measures to GAAP financial measures because certain items required for such reconciliations are outside of our control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted. Preparation of such reconciliations would require a forward-looking balance sheet, statement of income and statement of cash flows, prepared in accordance with GAAP, and such forward-looking financial statements are unavailable to us without unreasonable effort.

Wabash will discuss its results during its quarterly investor conference call on Thursday, February 1, beginning at 11:00 a.m. EST.

1 Adjusted segment EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, includes noncontrolling interest & excludes loss from unconsolidated entity and is calculated by adding back segment depreciation and amortization expense to segment operating income, and excludes certain costs, expenses, other charges, gains or income that are included in the determination of operating income 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.
