Strong Fourth Quarter Financial Performance Driven by Generally Improved Operating

Conditions and Profitability Improvements;

Utilized Strong Cash Flow Generation to Further Reduce Debt

Mayville, WI/March 2, 2021/Mayville Engineering Company (NYSE: MEC) (the “Company” or “MEC”), a leading U.S.-based value added manufacturing partner that provides a broad range of prototyping and tooling, production fabrication, coating, assembly and aftermarket services, today announced results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020.

Fourth Quarter 2020 Highlights:



Produced net sales of $95.3 million



Recorded net income of $1.0 million



Generated Adjusted EBITDA of $9.3 million, or 9.8% of net sales



Reduced total funded debt to $47.9 million, resulting in a leverage ratio of 1.5x

“We executed effectively in the fourth quarter and were pleased with our performance, which, in many aspects, was a significant improvement over our fourth quarter 2019 results,” noted Robert D. Kamphuis, Chairman, President and CEO. “As we look back at 2020, we are pleased with the way we reacted as the pandemic took hold and our continued focus on optimizing our cost structure through facility and process improvements, as well as fortifying our financial position. With market conditions continuing to stabilize, we are confident in our ability to execute our strategy in 2021 as we pursue further productivity gains thru new technologies and automation and explore growth opportunities.”

Fourth Quarter Results

Net sales were $95.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, as compared to $102.3 million for same prior year period. The decrease of $7.0 million was primarily attributable to manufacturing volume reductions across all end markets served, primarily related to the pandemic. Despite the lower volumes, all customer relationships and manufacturing programs remain intact.

Manufacturing margins were $11.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, as compared to $4.0 million for the same prior year period. The increase of $7.0 million was driven by the successful implementation of cost reduction initiatives throughout the year, combined with leveraging recent investments in technology and automation.

Profit sharing, bonuses, and deferred compensation expenses were $3.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2020 as compared to $(0.2) million for the same prior year period. The increase in current year expense was primarily driven by the re-establishment of discretionary 401(k) accruals based on improving business conditions.

Other selling, general and administrative expenses were $4.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to $5.2 million for the same prior year period, which included $0.5 million of one-time initial public offering and Defiance Metal Products (DMP) acquisition related expenses. Excluding the one-time items from the prior year, these expenses decreased by $0.3 million due to synergies achieved through the integration of DMP, lower travel expenses related to the pandemic, and other cost savings initiatives.

Interest expense was $0.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2020 as compared to $0.9 million for the same prior year period. The decline was driven by lower debt levels and lower interest rates in the current period.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin were $9.3 million and 9.8% for the fourth quarter of 2020, as compared to $5.5 million and 5.4% for the same prior year period, respectively. These increases are directly attributable to permanent cost reduction initiatives, particularly the consolidation of the Greenwood, SC facility, and leveraging recent investments in technology and automation.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

During 2020, the Company further strengthened its balance sheet by paying down debt by $28.0 million, which resulted in year-end total funded debt of $47.9 million, and a leverage ratio of approximately 1.5x, considerably lower than the current covenant threshold of 4.25x.

Capital expenditures were $7.8 million for the full year 2020, as compared to $25.8 million for the full year 2019. The $18.0 million decrease is due to a focus on debt reduction and to leveraging our previous investments in new technology and automation.

CFO, Todd Butz stated, “As market dynamics improved during the second half of 2020, we methodically paid down debt, further strengthening our balance sheet. From a financial and operating perspective, we are well positioned to execute our strategy in 2021 and beyond.”.


Based on the ongoing economic uncertainty related to the pandemic, and consistent with most of our customers, the Company is not providing a financial outlook for 2021.

Kamphuis commented, “We are encouraged by the generally improving conditions in our end markets, and have made significant strides over the past year, through cost optimization and our investments in automation and technology. These improvements are sustainable, providing a clear path to our goal of 15% Adjusted EBITDA margins when manufacturing volumes return to pre-pandemic levels in the years ahead. We believe that we are in a strong position to sustain our recent performance in the coming quarters and improve upon our full year 2020 results in 2021. Of course, if 2020 taught us anything, it is to expect the unexpected, and our plans are dependent on a stable economic environment, and improving pandemic conditions as the year unfolds. We would like to commend our dedicated employees who battled through a tough year and ensured we responded quickly and effectively during the second half of the year as conditions started to improve.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains financial information calculated in a manner other than in accordance with U.S generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).

The non-GAAP measures used in this press release are EBITDA, EBITDA Margin, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin.

EBITDA represents net income before interest expense, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation, and amortization. EBITDA Margin represents EBITDA as a percentage of net sales for each period. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA before transaction fees incurred in connection with the DMP acquisition and our initial public offering (IPO), the loss on debt extinguishment relating to our December 2018 credit agreement, non-cash purchase accounting charges including costs recognized on the step-up of acquired inventory and contingent consideration fair value adjustments, one-time increases in deferred compensation and long term incentive plan expenses related to the IPO, stock-based compensation and restructuring expenses related to the closure of the Greenwood facility. Adjusted EBITDA Margin represents Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net sales for each period. These metrics are supplemental measures of our operating performance that are neither required by, nor presented in accordance with, GAAP. These measures should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of our operating performance. We present Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin as management uses these measures as key performance indicators, and we believe they are measures frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other parties to evaluate companies in our industry. These measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.

Our calculation of EBITDA, EBITDA Margin, Adjusted EBIDTA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin may not be comparable to the similarly named measures reported by other companies. Potential differences between our measures of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA compared to other similar companies’ measures of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may include differences in capital structure and tax positions.

Please reference our reconciliation of net income, the most directly comparable measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, and the calculation of EBITDA Margin and Adjusted EBITDA Margin included in this press release.
