MILWAUKEE — Enerpac Tool Group Corp. today announced results for its fiscal fourth quarter ended August 31, 2021.
“As we closed out this fiscal year, we continued our recovery from the global pandemic, with fourth quarter product sales nearing pre-COVID levels and IT&S product order rates for the quarter comparable to the fourth quarter of 2019. We are pleased to achieve EBITDA margin improvement over fiscal 2019 levels as a result of the structural cost actions we have taken. While we continued to face certain supply chain and other COVID-19-related challenges in the fourth quarter, we are encouraged by the continued strength in many of the vertical markets that we serve and the ongoing positive sentiment of our distributors,” said Randy Baker, Enerpac Tool Group’s President & CEO. “Moving into fiscal 2022, we remain focused on the safety of our employees, supporting our customers, and profitably growing Enerpac Tool Group through organic opportunities, new product development and acquisitions to enhance shareholder value.”
Baker added, “I want to thank our employees for their hard work and dedication through the extraordinary circumstances we faced throughout the year. Between the on-going challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and the more recent supply chain and logistics challenges resulting from the global economic recovery, our team continues to rise to the challenge to support our customers. We are confident that our business is well positioned for growth as the markets we serve continue to recover from COVID-19 related shutdowns.”
Baker continued, “As we look ahead to the next fiscal year, we are encouraged by our strong backlog, resulting from solid order rates in the fourth quarter. While our largest regions showed encouraging levels of product recovery in the quarter, not all were back to pre-COVID levels. Supply chain constraints, increased commodity costs, logistical shortages, as well as continued slow recovery in certain regions, are expected to create headwinds into fiscal 2022. We anticipate sales to be in the range of $590 million to $610 million for full year fiscal 2022, with the return of our more typical quarterly seasonality. Incremental Adjusted EBITDA margins are expected to be 35% to 45% for the full year, excluding the impact of currency.”
In a separate press release issued today, the Company announced the retirement of Randy Baker as President & CEO and announced the appointment of Paul Sternlieb as President & CEO, both effective October 8, 2021.
Baker concluded, “It has been an honor to be the President & CEO of this organization for the past 5 years. We have accomplished a significant transformation of the business in a short period of time. The business is on the path to becoming a best-in-class industrial tools and services company and I am confident that under Paul’s leadership as the new CEO of Enerpac Tool Group, the Company will continue to execute on key initiatives and drive shareholder value.”Tagged with Enerpac, financial results
