Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2020 (unless otherwise noted, all amounts are in U.S. dollars and all comparisons are to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019):

  • Sales increased by $8.3 million or 7.9% for the quarter. The sales volume for the quarter is the highest of any quarter of the past two fiscal years. Sales for the quarter were improved in the Company’s Italian subsidiary, while its North American operations realized lower sales.  The Company’s Italian operations were able to register the best quarterly performance of the subsidiary’s history amidst the turbulence caused by the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”).
  • Administration costs decreased by $5.6 million or 20.7% for the quarter. The Company benefited from the reduction of staff levels, for which the related retirement packages were recorded in the last quarter of the previous year. The decrease is also attributable to lower sales commissions as well as a decrease in costs associated with the Company’s ongoing asbestos litigation. The fluctuation in asbestos costs is due more to the timing of settlements rather than a long-term trend.
  • Gross profit increased by $2.0 million for the quarter, while the gross profit percentage remained stable when compared to the prior year quarter. The increase in gross profit was achieved through an overall higher sales volume, while the Company’s gross profit percentage remained stable due to less efficient sales mix when compared to the quarter of the previous year. 
  • Net loss1 amounted to $11.1 million or $0.51 per share compared to net earnings1 of $1.5 million or $0.07 per share last year. Net loss1 for the quarter was significantly impacted by a $8.2 million non-cash tax adjustment to de-recognize a portion of unused tax losses as well as a charge of $7.1 million related to the Company’s restructuring and transformative initiative, V20.  Restructuring and transformation costs include cash severances and related costs paid or to be paid to former employees, temporary project resources and their travel and lodging costs as well as the moving costs related to dismantling and transportation of machinery and equipment to reflect the optimized manufacturing footprint plant. Excluding this $7.1 million charge, as well as the after-tax impact of these restructuring and transformation costs incurred during the quarter, the Company’s net loss1 would have been $5.9 million compared to net earnings1 of $1.5 million last year, representing a decrease in the Company’s results of $7.4 million which is primarily attributable to a non-cash income tax charge, partially offset by lower administration costs and an improved gross margin.
  • Operating profit before restructuring and transformation costs2 amounted to $6.2 million compared to an operating loss of $0.7 million last year.  Adjusted EBITDA2 amounted to $9.9 million or $0.46 per share compared to $3.8 million or $0.18 per share last year. The improvement in operating profit before restructuring and transformation costs2 and adjusted EBITDA2 is primarily attributable to lowered administration costs and an increase in gross profit.
  • Bookings increased by $6.3 million or 7.7% for the quarter. The increase in bookings for the quarter is due primarily to large severe service orders booked in the Company’s North American operations.  Additionally, bookings had negatively been impacted in the last quarter of the previous fiscal year by the suspension of a $36.3 million large project order which had been booked in a prior fiscal year, to supply valves to the power market in Vietnam.  This increase in bookings was partially offset by lower order bookings in the Company’s Italian and French operations, which had both recorded significant project orders relating to the upstream oil & gas and nuclear power industries in the last quarter of previous fiscal year. 

Year Ended Fiscal 2020 (unless otherwise noted, all amounts are in U.S. dollars and all comparisons are to the prior fiscal year):

  • Sales amounted to $371.6 million, an increase of $4.7 million or 1.3% compared to last year. Sales were positively impacted by an increase in shipments from the Company’s Italian operations which continued to deliver the record backlog, destined to the upstream oil and gas industry.  This increase was partially offset by decreased shipments from the Company’s North American and French operations. The decrease in shipments from the Company’s North American operations is primarily attributable to an unusually high surge of non-project valve re-stocking orders from its distributors in the first quarter of the prior fiscal year. 
  • Administration costs amounted to $85.2 million, a decrease of $8.1 million or 8.7%. The decrease in administration costs was achieved despite the recording of a $0.9 million provision regarding the settlement of a product claim that was filed against the Company in a prior fiscal year as well as a slight increase in the costs recognized in connection with the Company’s ongoing asbestos litigation. The fluctuation in asbestos costs for the year is due more to the timing of settlements in these two years rather than a long‑term trend. The reduction in administration costs is mainly attributable to lower sales commissions as well as the higher freight charges that were incurred in the prior fiscal year in order to air freight a large delayed order.  The Company also benefited from the reduction of staff levels, for which the related retirement packages were recorded in the last quarter of the previous year.
  • Gross profit percentage increased by 40 basis points from 23.3% to 23.7%. This reflects a much-improved performance in the last three quarters of the year, each delivering above 24% in gross profit, a notable recovery from the first quarter where gross profit was only 19.2%. The recovery came from the strong sales volume and higher margin sales in the Company’s European operations. Meanwhile, on a full-year comparison basis, this increase was partially offset by the lower sales volume shipped by the Company’s North American operations.  The gross profit percentage was also negatively impacted by the very low margins experienced in the first quarter in the Company’s North American operations. However, these saw an overall improvement in margins through the last three quarters, thanks to the reduction of its production overhead in accordance with the V20 plan, a better product mix, and its business units’ increased focus on higher quality orders.
  • Net loss1 amounted to $16.4 million or $0.76 per share compared to $4.9 million or $0.23 per share last year. Net loss1 for the year was significantly impacted by a $8.2 million non-cash tax adjustment to de‑recognize a portion of unused tax losses as well as a charge of $9.6 million related to the Company’s restructuring and transformative initiative, V20.  Restructuring and transformation costs include cash severances and related costs paid or to be paid to former employees, temporary project resources and their travel and lodging costs as well as the moving costs related to dismantling and transportation of machinery and equipment to reflect the optimized manufacturing footprint plan. Excluding this $9.6 million charge, as well as the after-tax impact of these restructuring and transformation costs incurred during the year, the Company’s net loss1 would have been $9.4 million compared to $4.9 million last year, representing an increase in net loss1 of $4.5 million which is primarily attributable to a non-cash income tax charge, partially offset by lower administration costs and an improved gross margin percentage.
  • Operating profit before restructuring and transformation costs amounted to $2.9 million compared to an operating loss of $7.0 million last year.  Adjusted EBITDA2 amounted to $16.1 million or $0.74 per share compared to $7.1 million or $0.33 per share last year. The improvement in operating profit before restructuring and transformation costs2 and adjusted EBITDA2 is primarily attributable to lowered administration costs and an increase in gross profit percentage. On this adjusted basis, the Company was able to make an operating profit for the first time since fiscal year 2017 while the Company’s adjusted EBITDA more than doubled compared to last year.
  • Bookings amounted to $340.4 million, a decrease of $32.0 million or 8.6% compared to last year. This decrease is due primarily to lower orders booked by the Company’s Italian and French subsidiaries, which had recorded significant project orders relating to the upstream oil and gas and nuclear power industries in the previous fiscal year. 
  • The Company ended the period with a backlog of $406.8 million, a decrease of $42.9 million or 9.5% since the beginning of the current fiscal year. The decrease in backlog is primarily attributable to a lower book-to-bill ratio of 0.92 and the weakening of the euro spot rate against the U.S. dollar over the course of the current fiscal year. Here again, those results, while not satisfactory, are not fully reflecting the business performance of fiscal year 2020, as they were dragged down by a very weak booking performance in the first quarter, that gradually improved in the following three quarters, namely in the Company’s North American operations, where, thanks to increased market and business focus through the new strategic business units, a book-to-bill ratio of 1.21 was achieved during the last two quarters.
  • The Company ended the year with net cash of $31.0 million, a decrease of $9.9 million or 24.2% since the beginning of the year. This decrease is primarily attributable to investments in property, plant and equipment and intangible assets, long term debt and lease liabilities repayments, as well as distributions to shareholders via dividends, partially offset by cash provided by operating activities and an increase in long-term debt.  Net cash was also negatively impacted by V20 related disbursements as well as the weakening of the euro spot rate against the U.S. dollar over the course of the current year.
  • Foreign currency impacts:
    • Based on average exchange rates, the euro weakened 4.6% against the U.S. dollar when compared to the same period last year. This weakening resulted in the Company’s net profits and bookings from its European subsidiaries being reported as lower U.S. dollar amounts in the current year.
    • Based on average exchange rates, the Canadian dollar weakened 1.3% against the U.S. dollar when compared to the same period last year. This weakening resulted in the Company’s Canadian dollar expenses being reported as lower U.S. dollar amounts in the current year.
    • The net impact of the above currency swings was generally unfavourable on the Company’s results1.

“Notwithstanding the fact that fiscal year 2020 was a year of many challenges, with the implementation of the first wave of restructuring and transformation initiatives, it was a year of positive improvements in terms of both sales and operating profit, excluding the restructuring and transformation costs. In North America our restructuring efforts are progressing on track and below initial cost estimates while our overseas companies in Europe and Asia turned in very good results,” said John Ball, CFO of Velan Inc. “We ended the year amidst the uncertainty of the growing worldwide COVID-19 pandemic and we are taking many measures to protect our employees, operations, balance sheet and cash flow.”

Yves Leduc, CEO of Velan Inc., said, “What a year this has been! As the deployment efforts of the V20 plan grew in momentum, the company was able to deliver improved adjusted results, recovering from a bad first quarter. As supplier of critical equipment to essential industries, we were spared the most devastating consequences of the global recession that came late in the fiscal year, as our multi-national organization responded admirably in protecting our employees showing up every day at the shop, and ensuring the continuity of our global supply chain. Although no one can foretell how long the global recession will last, we are thankful for the progress made in driving process improvements, eliminating significant structural costs, and bringing about a new market focus. As a result, Velan will be lighter, more resilient and more agile in serving our customers. And Bruno Carbonaro, our new president, along with other highly capable new hires, are increasing our leadership capacity at a very important juncture in our history. There may be disruption ahead, but our confidence is bolstered by the resolve of our employees, who, having already proven their capacity to handle enormous change, fear no challenge. On behalf of our board and the Velan family, I thank them, and add, let’s keep going.”

Dividend

The Board has decided it is appropriate in the current context to suspend the quarterly dividend, effective immediately. This decision will be reviewed on a quarterly basis.
