1In millions except per share data or as otherwise noted. 2Based on 55.4 million and 55.6 million diluted shares outstanding for FY19 Q2 and FY19 YTD, respectively.  3Based on 56.9 million and 56.7 million diluted shares outstanding for FY18 Q2 and FY18 YTD, respectively. 4 Prior year periods include a provisional tax benefit of $41.2 million, or $0.72 per diluted share, from the revaluation of the company's tax related balance sheet items and a tax benefit of $16.9 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, attributable to the lower effective tax rate required to bring the first half of fiscal 2018 into alignment with the expected full year rate.

Erik Gershwind, president and chief executive officer, said, "Conditions generally remained solid in the industrial economy in the fiscal second quarter of 2019, although we did see some moderation in February and this continued into March. Our core and national account customer growth in the quarter was in the high single digits, while Government sales were negative as expected. As a result, our total company growth rate was slightly below our expectations. The pricing environment remained stable in the fiscal second quarter, and we were pleased with the strong realization that we achieved on our mid-year price increase."

Rustom Jilla, executive vice president and chief financial officer, added, "Our fiscal second quarter total ADS increased 8.8% year-over-year, with acquisitions contributing 270 basis points. Our gross margin was in-line with our expectations. Price realization was strong, while purchase cost and mix remained headwinds, as expected. Our operating expense to sales ratio was 31.1%, roughly flat with last year's second quarter and in line with our guidance, as our stepped-up growth investments offset the benefits of sales leverage. Despite our gross margins and operating expenses coming in as expected, our earnings per share were one cent below our guidance mid-point due to slightly lower than anticipated sales. Finally, in the fiscal second quarter, we paid dividends of $35 million and repurchased approximately 275 thousand shares for about $21 million."

Gershwind concluded, "Over the past few years, we have repositioned MSC from a spot buy supplier to a mission critical partner on manufacturing plant floors. More recently, we transformed our sales force and ramped hiring of sales talent. At the halfway point of the fiscal year, gross margins and operating expenses are as anticipated, but revenue growth has slightly underperformed our expectations. Looking forward, we are seeing positive signs from the implementation of our strategic plan, particularly from our sales force transformation, and are confident that it will deliver above market growth."

Outlook
The Company expects net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 to be between $874 million and $891 million. At the midpoint, average daily sales are expected to increase roughly 6.5% compared to last year's third quarter. The Company expects diluted earnings per share for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 to be between $1.46 and $1.52.

Excluding acquisitions*, the Company expects net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 to be between $846 million and $863 million, with average daily sales at the midpoint expected to increase roughly 4.0% compared to last year's third quarter. The Company expects the impact from acquisitions to have a roughly breakeven impact on diluted earnings per share for the third quarter of fiscal 2019.

* An explanation and reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP financial measures is presented in the financial schedules of this press release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

  • Results excluding All Integrated Solutions (AIS) and MSC Mexico

To supplement MSC's unaudited selected financial data presented consistent with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), the Company discloses certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Non-GAAP net sales, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP (benefit) provision for income taxes, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, that exclude the results of our acquisition of All Integrated Solutions ("AIS") and the operations of two newly-formed entities, MSC IndustrialSupply, S. de R.L. de C.V. and MSC Import Export LLC (which completed the acquisition of certain assets in February 2019), including the non-recurring acquisition and integrations costs (collectively, referred to as "Acquisitions").

These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with or an alternative for GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. We believe that these non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect MSC's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP, and that these measures should only be used to evaluate MSC's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP measures. We compensate for the limitations of non-GAAP financial measures by relying upon GAAP results to gain a complete picture of the Company's performance.

In calculating non-GAAP financial measures, we exclude the results of the Acquisitions to facilitate a review of the Company's operating performance on a period-to-period basis, for comparison with forecasts and strategic plans, and for benchmarking performance externally against competitors. We believe that investors benefit from seeing results "through the eyes" of management in addition to seeing GAAP results. We believe that these non-GAAP measures, when read in conjunction with the Company's GAAP financials, provide useful information to investors by offering:

  • the ability to make more meaningful period-to-period comparisons of the Company's on-going operating results;
  • the ability to better identify trends in the Company's underlying business and perform related trend analyses;
  • a better understanding of how management plans and measures the Company's underlying business; and
  • an easier way to compare the Company's operating results against analyst financial models and operating results of competitors that supplement their GAAP results with non-GAAP financial measures
