CHICAGO, Feb. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — JBT Corporation (NYSE: JBT), a leading global technology solutions provider to high-value segments of the food & beverage industry, today reported results for the fourth quarter and full year 2022.

“JBT achieved double-digit revenue and earnings per share growth in 2022 in a year marked by rapid inflation and supply chain challenges,” said Brian Deck, President and Chief Executive Officer. “At FoodTech, we are pleased with the continued high level of customer engagement and sequential fourth quarter order improvement. Additionally, during 2022, we closed two strategic acquisitions, Bevcorp and Alco. The integrations of these acquisitions are going well, and we are realizing commercial synergies with our existing FoodTech solutions.”

“During 2022, we also introduced our Elevate 2.0 strategy,” added Deck. “As part of Elevate 2.0’s core pillars, we are pursuing a pure-play food and beverage strategy; developing and commercializing our holistic, customer-centric digital solution, OmniBlu; introducing new products that support our customers’ need for yield, capacity, automation, and sustainability; enhancing margins through supply chain and our continuous improvement initiatives; and deploying capital to strategic acquisitions that provide meaningful synergies with FoodTech’s existing products and solutions.”

For the full year 2022, JBT generated cash from operations of $142 million, which included investments in inventory to support double-digit revenue growth and to help mitigate supply chain risks. Full year free cash flow was $59 million, including capital expenditures of approximately $40 million associated with JBT’s digital strategy. Liquidity at year end stood at $526 million, and the Company’s net leverage ratio was 3.0x net debt to trailing twelve months pro forma adjusted EBITDA.

2023 Guidance

“In 2023, we expect growth at FoodTech will be driven by our resilient business model, recent acquisitions, and our diverse product offering,” said Matt Meister. “AeroTech is well on its path to recovery, with meaningful growth driven by demand from commercial airlines and infrastructure spending. We expect our margins at FoodTech and AeroTech will continue to increase, approaching pre-pandemic levels, and we anticipate JBT will achieve another year of double-digit earnings per share growth despite the uncertain macroeconomic environment.”

For the full year 2023, FoodTech year-over-year revenue growth is estimated to be 5 – 9 percent, comprised of 1 – 4 percent from organic growth and 4 – 5 percent from acquisitions. FoodTech operating profit margin is forecast to be 13 – 14 percent, and adjusted EBITDA margin is expected to be 18.5 – 19.5 percent.

For the full year 2023, AeroTech year-over-year revenue growth is estimated to be 10 – 13 percent. AeroTech operating profit margin is forecast to be 11.25 – 11.75 percent, and adjusted EBITDA margin is projected to be 12 – 12.5 percent. 

Additionally, for the full year 2023, JBT expects to incur $3$4 million of restructuring expense related to FoodTech. This, along with the actions taken in the second half of 2022, are expected to generate annual run rate savings of $9$12 million in 2024. 

The first quarter is generally the lowest quarter in a given year due to seasonality. Additionally, EPS in the first quarter of 2023 reflects a meaningful increase in FoodTech depreciation and amortization from acquisitions and capitalized digital investments in 2022 as well as higher interest expense and taxes.

For the first quarter of 2023, FoodTech year-over-year revenue growth is estimated to be 4 – 7 percent. FoodTech operating profit margin is forecast to be 9.75 – 10.5 percent, and adjusted EBITDA margin is projected to be 16.5 – 17 percent. 

For the first quarter of 2023, AeroTech year-over-year revenue growth is expected to be 15 – 20 percent. AeroTech operating profit margin is forecast to be 9.25 – 10.25 percent, and adjusted EBITDA margin is projected to be 10 – 11 percent.

This release contains forward-looking statements as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements are information of a non-historical nature and are subject to risks and uncertainties that are beyond JBT’s ability to control. Forward-looking statements include, among others, statements relating to the expected impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business and our results of operations, our plans to mitigate the impact of the pandemic, our strategic plans, our restructuring plans and expected cost savings from those plans, our outlook and guidance, and our liquidity and our covenant compliance. The factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from expectations include but are not limited to the following factors: higher energy and other input costs adversely impacting financial condition of our customers, especially in Europe, and demand for our goods and services from our customers; the effects of any resurgence in the COVID-19 pandemic on our ability to operate our business and facilities, on our customers, on our workforce resulting in illness or higher labor turnover, on our supply chains due to extended delivery times and higher freight costs, and on the economy generally; fluctuations in our financial results; unanticipated delays or acceleration in our sales cycles; deterioration of economic conditions; disruptions in the political, regulatory, economic and social conditions of the countries in which we conduct business; changes to trade regulation, quotas, duties or tariffs; risks associated with acquisitions or strategic investments; fluctuations in currency exchange rates; increases in energy or raw material prices, freight costs, and inflationary pressures; changes in food consumption patterns; impacts of food borne illnesses and diseases to various agricultural products; weather conditions and natural disasters; impact of climate change and environmental protection initiatives; our ability to comply with the laws and regulations governing our U.S. government contracts; acts of terrorism or war; termination or loss of major customer contracts and risks associated with fixed-price contracts, particularly during periods of high inflation; customer sourcing initiatives; competition and innovation in our industries; difficulty in implementing our business strategies, including the timing of our previously announced review of strategic alternatives for the AeroTech platform, our ability to identify or develop any strategic alternatives, execute on material aspects of such strategic alternatives, and whether we can achieve the potential benefits of such strategic alternatives; our ability to develop and introduce new or enhanced products and services and keep pace with technological developments; difficulty in developing, preserving and protecting our intellectual property or defending claims of infringement; catastrophic loss at any of our facilities and business continuity of our information systems; cyber-security risks such as network intrusion or ransomware schemes; loss of key management and other personnel; potential liability arising out of the installation or use of our systems; our ability to comply with U.S. and international laws governing our operations and industries; increases in tax liabilities; work stoppages; fluctuations in interest rates and returns on pension assets; availability of and access to financial and other resources; and other factors described under the captions “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K  filed by JBT with the Securities and Exchange Commission and in any subsequently filed Form 10-Q.

We provide non-GAAP financial measures in order to increase transparency in our operating results and trends. These non-GAAP measures eliminate certain costs or benefits from, or change the calculation of, a measure as calculated under U.S. GAAP. By eliminating these items, we believe we provide a more meaningful comparison of our ongoing operating results, consistent with how management evaluates performance. Management uses these non-GAAP measures in financial and operational evaluation, planning and forecasting.

These calculations may differ from similarly-titled measures used by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed are not intended to be used as a substitute for, nor should they be considered in isolation of, financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

(1) Includes restructuring expense as well as any charges reported in cost of products for restructuring related inventory write-offs.











(2) M&A related costs include integration costs, amortization of inventory step-up from business combinations, earn out adjustments to fair value, advisory and transaction costs for both potential and completed M&A transactions and strategy.











(3) Beginning in the second quarter of 2022, we made a change to the adjusted operating earnings and adjusted net income measures to exclude the impact of last-in first-out (“LIFO”) expense or benefit because it reduces volatility that is not reflective of our operations, and allows for better comparability to our peers. Prior year adjusted operating earnings and adjusted net income figures have been revised to align with this change in presentation.











(4) Impact on tax provision was calculated using the enacted rate for the relevant jurisdiction for each quarter shown.











The above table reports adjusted income from continuing operations and adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations, which are non-GAAP financial measures. We use these measures internally to make operating decisions and for the planning and forecasting of future periods, and therefore provide this information to investors because we believe it allows more meaningful period-to-period comparisons of our ongoing operating results, without the fluctuations in the amount of certain costs that do not reflect our underlying operating results.

The above table reports EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Given the Company’s focus on growth through acquisitions, management believes EBITDA facilitates an evaluation of business performance while excluding the impact of amortization due to the step up in value of intangible assets, and the depreciation of fixed assets. We use Adjusted EBITDA internally to make operating decisions and believe this information is helpful to investors because it allows more meaningful period-to-period comparisons of our ongoing operating results.

(1) Segment operating profit is defined as total segment revenue less segment operating expenses.  Corporate expense, restructuring expense, interest income and expense, pension expense other than service, and income taxes are not allocated to the segments.  Corporate expense generally includes corporate staff-related expense, stock-based compensation, LIFO adjustments, certain foreign currency related gains and losses, and the impact of unusual or strategic events not representative of segment operations.


(2) Total segment operating profit, as presented elsewhere in this release, is a non-GAAP measure.  The table above includes a reconciliation of total segment operating profit to operating income.  We believe that this measure provides to investors a more comprehensive understanding of the information used by management in evaluating the performance of its segment operations.  It is not intended to nor shall be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

(1) Includes restructuring expense as well as any charges reported in cost of products for restructuring related inventory write-offs.









(2) M&A related costs include integration costs, amortization of inventory step-up from business combinations, earn out adjustments to fair value, advisory and transaction costs for both potential and completed M&A transactions and strategy.









(3) Beginning in the second quarter of 2022, we made a change to the adjusted operating earnings and adjusted net income measures to exclude the impact of last-in first-out (“LIFO”) expense or benefit because it reduces volatility that is not reflective of our operations, and allows for better comparability to our peers. Prior year adjusted operating earnings and adjusted net income figures have been revised to align with this change in presentation.









The above table reports EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Given the Company’s focus on growth through acquisitions, management believes EBITDA facilitates an evaluation of business performance while excluding the impact of amortization due to the step up in value of intangible assets, and the depreciation of fixed assets. We use Adjusted EBITDA internally to make operating decisions and believe this information is helpful to investors because it allows more meaningful period-to-period comparisons of our ongoing operating results.

The above table reports free cash flow, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. We use free cash flow internally as a key indicator of our liquidity and ability to service debt, invest in business combinations, and return money to shareholders and believe this information is useful to investors because it provides an understanding of the cash available to fund these initiatives. For free cash flow purposes we consider contributions to pension plans to be more comparable to payment of debt, and therefore exclude these contributions from the calculation of free cash flow.
