Enerpac Tool Group reports fiscal Q2 core sales growth

Enerpac Tool Group Corp. reported fiscal second quarter net sales of $142 million, with a 6% year-over-year increase in core sales, adding that the strengthening of the U.S. dollar reduced sales by 2% year over year.

“Thanks to solid execution by our global team, we delivered strong and encouraging performance in the second quarter," said Paul Sternlieb, Enerpac Tool Group’s president & CEO. "While the second quarter is typically our seasonally weakest quarter, we saw year-over-year core growth in three out of four regions and we achieved record gross profit margins and adjusted EBITDA margins since the launch of Enerpac Tool Group in 2019.

"We continued to execute our growth strategies and made accelerated progress on our ASCEND transformation program,” he Sternlieb continued. “Having now reached the one-year anniversary since the launch of our ASCEND transformation program, we are extremely pleased with the continued progress we have made on the accelerated execution of several ASCEND initiatives, and as a result we have increased the expected annual adjusted EBITDA benefit of the program from the original goal of $40-$50 million to a new goal of $50-$60 million as we exit fiscal 2024.

"We are driving positive, meaningful, and permanent change across our organization, making us more efficient, more productive, and easier to do business with. We are also undertaking key growth investments in areas such as our expansion in targeted vertical markets, our digital transformation and digital marketing program, our customer-driven innovation, and our expansion in Asia Pacific. While the global macroeconomic environment remains uncertain, we believe the improvements we are making through ASCEND and the execution of our differentiated growth strategy have us well positioned to deliver enhanced shareholder value.”
