 Milacron Holdings Corp. reports 2017 results
Milacron Holdings Corp., a leading industrial technology company serving the plastic processing industry, announced financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2017.

“We delivered a strong fourth quarter and exceeded our full-year sales, adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow guidance ranges” said Milacron President and Chief Executive Officer, Tom Goeke. “We delivered nearly double digit constant currency sales growth in the quarter, driven by our APPT segment with 16 percent sales growth and our Fluid Technologies segment grew five percent on a constant currency basis.

For the full year, we achieved nine percent order and five percent sales growth, on a constant currency basis, and despite numerous inflationary headwinds, continued to expand EBITDA margins with a 20 basis point improvement. We also delivered significant free cash flow improvement as our focus on lowering working capital provided exceptional results to the quarter and full year.

Looking ahead to 2018, we begin the year with a strong backlog position of $287.0 million, are focused on concluding our three year restructuring initiatives and will continue to take the necessary actions to meaningfully strengthen our balance sheet. Our guidance for 2018 reflects the continued execution of our strategic fundamentals, which includes driving increased sales from consumables, expanding margins in all of our businesses and increasing free cash flow conversion to position our company for growth."
