Quarter Ended October 31, 2019 Financial Results:

Earnings per diluted Class A Nonvoting Common Share were $0.70 for the first quarter of fiscal 2020, compared to $0.58 in the same quarter last year. Net income and earnings per diluted Class A Nonvoting Common Share were impacted by a reduced income tax rate of 9.8 percent primarily due to a favorable tax audit settlement and tax benefits from equity-based compensation.

Commentary:
“This quarter marks our 17th consecutive quarter of year-on-year pre-tax earnings growth. Our investment in innovative new products to provide increased value to our customers while executing efficiencies throughout our manufacturing facilities and SG&A structure continue to drive our improved financial results,” said Brady’s President and Chief Executive Officer, J. Michael Nauman. “We see signs of a weakening industrial economic environment, which makes our commitment to the execution of sustainable efficiency gains throughout our businesses essential this fiscal year. Our priorities for fiscal 2020 are consistent with what has allowed us to deliver improved financial results the last four years, which we believe position us well for strong revenue and earnings growth as our end markets recover from the recent macro-economic weakness.”
“Cash provided by operating activities was $38.8 million this quarter and we finished in a net cash position of nearly $245 million at October 31, 2019, an increase of $107 million since October 31, 2018. Our balance sheet continues to provide significant flexibility for future investment and to return funds to our shareholders, which puts Brady in a strong financial position,” said Brady’s Chief Financial Officer, Aaron Pearce.

Fiscal 2020 Guidance:
The Company is increasing its full year fiscal 2020 earnings per diluted Class A Nonvoting Common Share guidance from its previous range of $2.45 to $2.55 to a range of $2.50 to $2.60 due to a reduction in its income tax rate. Included in this guidance is organic sales growth of approximately 1.5 to 2.5 percent, a full-year income tax rate of approximately 20 percent, and depreciation and amortization of approximately $25 million. The Company expects to achieve efficiency gains in its manufacturing facilities and in selling, general and administrative expenses. Capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $35 million during the year ending July 31, 2020. This guidance is based upon foreign currency exchange rates as of October 31, 2019.

A webcast regarding Brady’s fiscal 2020 first quarter financial results will be available at www.bradycorp.com/investors beginning at 9:30 a.m. central time today.

###

In this news release, statements that are not reported financial results or other historic information are “forward-looking statements.” These forward-looking statements relate to, among other things, the Company's future financial position, business strategy, targets, projected sales, costs, earnings, capital expenditures, debt levels and cash flows, and plans and objectives of management for future operations.

The use of words such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “intend,” “estimate,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “should,” “project” or “plan” or similar terminology are generally intended to identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that are, to different degrees, uncertain and are subject to risks, assumptions, and other factors, some of which are beyond Brady’s control, that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. For Brady, uncertainties arise from: our ability to compete effectively or to successfully execute our strategy; Brady’s ability to develop technologically advanced products that meet customer demands; difficulties in protecting our websites, networks, and systems against security breaches; decreased demand for our products; raw material and other cost increases; extensive regulations by U.S. and non-U.S. governmental and self-regulatory entities; risks associated with the loss of key employees; divestitures and contingent liabilities from divestitures; Brady’s ability to properly identify, integrate, and grow acquired companies; litigation, including product liability claims; foreign currency fluctuations; the impact of the Tax Reform Act and any other changes in tax legislation and tax rates; potential write-offs of Brady’s substantial intangible assets; differing interests of voting and non-voting shareholders; numerous other matters of national, regional and global scale, including those of a political, economic, business, competitive, and regulatory nature contained from time to time in Brady’s U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including, but not limited to, those factors listed in the “Risk Factors” section within Item 1A of Part I of Brady’s Form 10-K for the year ended July 31, 2019.

These uncertainties may cause Brady's actual future results to be materially different than those expressed in its forward-looking statements. Brady does not undertake to update its forward-looking statements except as required by law.
