Milacron (MCRN) Q1 Earnings In Line, Revenues Lag

Milacron Holdings Corp. MCRN manufactures, distributes, and services engineered and customized systems within the plastic technology and processing industry in North America, Europe, Asia, and internationally. Milacron Holdings has 4% share in the $27 billion global plastics technology and processing industry.

The company’s superior organic sales growth profile, cost cutting efforts and balance sheet deleveraging will ensure sustained earnings growth. Moreover, the company continues to grow though acquisitions. However, risks remain regarding operational execution as a public company, and the current challenging demand environment.

Although Milacron Holdings caters to diverse end-markets, demand will continue to be affected by cyclical trends in client capital expenditures, industrial production and construction activity. Free cash flow will be constrained by higher working capital needs and the capital investment required for restructuring its European manufacturing footprint.

We have highlighted some of the key stats from this just revealed announcement below:
