January 16, 2019

SALEM, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 16, 2019--Standex International (NYSE:SXI) announced today that it has sold its minority interest investment in Giorik, SpA (“Giorik”) to that business’s majority owner. It was necessary to have the Company’s partner repurchase the minority interest in Giorik to allow the eventual buyer of Cooking Solutions maximum flexibility and to have a supply contract with the partner in place.

Standex continues to make progress on the Cooking Solutions divestiture from the Food Service Equipment Group segment in line with its plan. Standex has provided an updated table, attached to this release, to show the pro-forma historical impact of the divestitures of both Cooking Solutions and the Giorik minority interest on sales, margins and earnings per share both on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), the Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income from continuing operations, free operating cash flow, EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) and adjusted earnings per share. The attached financial tables reconcile non-GAAP measures used in this press release to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. The Company believes that the use of non-GAAP measures including the impact of restructuring charges, purchase accounting, discrete tax events, and acquisition costs help investors to obtain a better understanding of our operating results and prospects, consistent with how management measures and forecasts the Company’s performance, especially when comparing such results to previous periods. An understanding of the impact in a particular quarter of specific restructuring costs, acquisition expenses, or other gains and losses, on net income (absolute as well as on a per-share basis), operating income or EBITDA can give management and investors additional insight into core financial performance, especially when compared to quarters in which such items had a greater or lesser effect, or no effect. Non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a replacement for, the corresponding GAAP measures, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
