Terex Announces First Quarter 2020 Results

WESTPORT, Conn., April 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Terex Corporation (NYSE: TEX) today announced a first quarter 2020 loss from continuing operations of $(24.7) million, or $(0.35) per share, on net sales of $833.6 million.  In the first quarter of 2019, the reported income from continuing operations was $57.2 million, or $0.79 per share, on net sales of $1.1 billion.  This compares to income from continuing operations, as adjusted, of $62.3 million or $0.87 per share in the first quarter of 2019. The Glossary at the end of this press release contains further details regarding these non-GAAP measures.
John L. Garrison, Jr., Terex Chairman and CEO, commented, “First and foremost, we have taken measures to prioritize the health and safety of our team members, families and customers during the COVID-19 pandemic.”Mr. Garrison continued, “While the first two months of the year met our expectations, during March, global economic activity, including customer capital equipment purchases, sharply contracted. In response to this unprecedented situation, we swiftly implemented safety, financial, and production actions.” Production was quickly reduced in our global facilities due to customer demand and local government mandates. We are beginning to gradually and safely resume operations in response to customer demand and as permitted by government mandate. The current status of our global operations can be found on the Terex website under the COVID-19 resources section. On March 31, 2020, the company had $945 million of available liquidity. In order to maintain Terex’s strong liquidity position, on April 23, 2020, Terex completed an amendment and waiver of its revolving credit facility with its bank group. This action provides continued access to ample liquidity and the financial flexibility to successfully operate the business during this period of economic uncertainty.  In addition, the Company undertook significant cost reduction actions, including suspending its dividend and share repurchases, reducing team member compensation, temporary furloughs, and permanent layoffs of team members. These actions seek to match our cost structure to the current economic environment. The Company withdrew its 2020 financial guidance on March 25, 2020 and will not issue revised guidance due to the economic uncertainties resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The full severity and duration of the related global economic crisis is not known, but it is expected to continue to negatively impact our operating results. Mr. Garrison concluded, “I am proud of the determination and dedication of our Terex team members, who continue to follow our Zero Harm Safety Program and safely serve our customers despite difficult market conditions. Terex will emerge well-positioned to continue to serve our customers and participate in the future economic recovery.”Non-GAAP Measures and Other ItemsResults of operations reflect continuing operations.  All per share amounts are on a fully diluted basis.  A comprehensive review of the quarterly financial performance is contained in the presentation that will accompany the Company’s earnings conference call.In this press release, Terex refers to various GAAP (U.S. generally accepted accounting principles) and non-GAAP financial measures.  These non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures being disclosed by other companies.  Terex believes that this non-GAAP information is useful to understanding its operating results and the ongoing performance of its underlying businesses. The Glossary at the end of this press release contains further details about this subject.Total amounts in tables of this release may not calculate due to rounding.Conference CallThe Company has scheduled a conference call to review the financial results on Friday, May 1, 2020 at 8:30 a.m. ET.  John L.
