The non-GAAP financial metric, adjusted EBITDA, is presented with its corresponding GAAP metric, net income attributable to Brink's.
(b)
Constant currency represents 2019 results at 2018 exchange rates.

Doug Pertz, president and chief executive officer, said: “Our strong fourth-quarter and full-year results in 2019 set the stage for continued growth in 2020 and marked the successful completion of our initial three-year strategic plan. Over the plan period, we achieved an 81% increase in non-GAAP operating profit, reflecting a compound annual growth rate of 22% that includes a margin rate expansion of 320 basis points to 10.6%. Earnings per share increased 71% over the same timeframe for a compound annual growth rate of 19%. These results were driven by strong organic profit growth

1


and the completion of 13 strategic acquisitions, including the acquisition of Dunbar Armored in the U.S., which remains on track to exceed $45 million in cost synergies. Most importantly, we created substantial value for our shareholders. We look forward to achieving similar success over the course of our new three-year strategic plan beginning in 2020, which we will review in detail at our Investor Day on June 1.

Pertz added: "Looking ahead, our full-year non-GAAP guidance for 2020 includes 10% operating profit growth and 13% earnings growth, driven primarily by a continuation and expansion of the Strategy 1.0 organic growth initiatives that we began implementing in 2017. We expect to achieve these targets despite continued currency headwinds, higher cash repatriation expenses and operating expenses related to developing, piloting and commercializing our Strategy 2.0 initiatives. Our current 2020 guidance assumes limited upside from these 2.0 initiatives, which we expect to begin rolling out in the second half of the year."

2020 Non-GAAP Guidance
The company's 2020 non-GAAP guidance includes:
Revenue: $3.775 billion, up ~3%, organic growth ~5%
Operating profit: $420 million to $440 million, up ~10%
Margin rate: 11.4%, up ~80 basis points
Adjusted EBITDA: $600 million to $620 million, up ~8%
EPS: $4.30 to $4.50, up ~13%
Free cash flow before dividends: $230 million, up ~36%
Assumptions include:
Currency rates as of 12/31/19, except for Argentina
Argentina negative profit impact vs 2019:
$10 million based on an average peso of 76 per USD
$5 million form expenses related to to cash repatriation
$20 million of operating expenses for Strategy 2.0 development, pilots and commercial start-up
Estimated tax rate: 32.0%
No impact from potential acquisitions included in guidance

Amounts may not add due to rounding

(a)
The 2019 Non-GAAP amounts are reconciled to the corresponding GAAP items on pages 10-13. The 2020 Non-GAAP outlook amounts exclude certain forecasted Non-GAAP adjusting items, such as intangible asset amortization and U.S. retirement plan costs. We have not forecasted the impact of highly inflationary accounting on our Argentina operations in 2020 or other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items for which the timing and amounts are currently under review, such as future restructuring actions. The 2020 Non-GAAP outlook amounts for operating profit, nonoperating expense, provision for income taxes, income from continuing operations, EPS from continuing operations, effective income tax rate, free cash flow before dividends and Adjusted EBITDA cannot be reconciled to GAAP without unreasonable effort. We cannot reconcile these amounts to GAAP because we are unable to accurately forecast the impact of highly inflationary accounting on our Argentina operations in 2020 or other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items for which the timing and amounts are currently under review, such as future restructuring actions.
(b)
The 2020 GAAP outlook excludes any forecasted impact from highly inflationary accounting on our Argentina operations as well as other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items for which the timing and amounts are currently under review, such as future restructuring actions.
(c)
Non-GAAP amounts include the impact of prior year comparable period results for acquired and disposed businesses. GAAP results also include the impact of acquisition-related intangible amortization, restructuring and other charges, and disposition related gains/losses.

The Brink’s Company and subsidiaries
Other Items Not Allocated To Segments (Unaudited)                     
(In millions)

Brink’s measures its segment results before income and expenses for corporate activities and for certain other items. See below for a summary of the other items not allocated to segments.

Venezuela operations Prior to the deconsolidation of our Venezuelan subsidiaries effective June 30, 2018, we excluded from our segment results all of our Venezuela operating results, due to the Venezuelan government's restrictions that have prevented us from repatriating funds.  As a result, the Chief Executive Officer, the Company's Chief Operating Decision maker ("CODM"), has assessed segment performance and has made resource decisions by segment excluding Venezuela operating results. 

Reorganization and Restructuring
2016 Restructuring
In the fourth quarter of 2016, management implemented restructuring actions across our global business operations and our corporate functions. As a result of these actions, we recognized charges of $18.1 million in 2016, an additional $17.3 million in 2017 and $13.0 million in 2018. The actions under this program were substantially completed in 2018, with cumulative pretax charges of approximately $48 million.

Other Restructurings
Management periodically implements restructuring actions in targeted sections of our business. As a result of these actions, we recognized charges of $4.6 million in 2017, $7.6 million in 2018 and $28.8 million in 2019, primarily severance costs. For the current restructuring actions, we expect to incur additional costs between $1 million and $3 million in future periods.

Due to the unique circumstances around these charges, these management-directed items have not been allocated to segment results and are excluded from non-GAAP results.
Acquisitions and dispositions Certain acquisition and disposition items that are not considered part of the ongoing activities of the business and are special in nature are consistently excluded from non-GAAP results. These items are described below:
2019 Acquisitions and Dispositions
We incurred $43.1 million in integration costs related to Dunbar, Rodoban, COMEF and TVS in 2019.
Amortization expense for acquisition-related intangible assets was $27.8 million in 2019.
Restructuring costs related to acquisitions, primarily Rodoban and Dunbar, were $5.6 million in 2019.
Transaction costs related to business acquisitions were $7.9 million in 2019.
Compensation expense related to the retention of key Dunbar employees was $1.5 million in 2019.
In 2019, we recognized $2.2 million in net charges, primarily asset impairment and severance costs, related to the exit from our top-up prepaid mobile phone business in Brazil.

2018 Acquisitions and Dispositions
Amortization expense for acquisition-related intangible assets was $17.7 million in 2018.
Integration costs in 2018 related to acquisitions in France and the U.S. were $8.1 million.
2018 transaction costs related to business acquisitions were $6.7 million.
We incurred 2018 severance charges related to our acquisitions in Argentina, France, U.S. and Brazil of $5.0 million.
Compensation expense related to the retention of key Dunbar employees was $4.1 million in 2018.
We recognized a net gain in 2018 ($2.6 million, net of statutory employee benefit) on the sale of real estate in Mexico.

Argentina highly inflationary impact Beginning in the third quarter of 2018, we designated Argentina's economy as highly inflationary for accounting purposes. As a result, Argentine peso-denominated monetary assets and liabilities are now remeasured at each balance sheet date to the currency exchange rate then in effect, with currency remeasurement gains and losses recognized in earnings. In addition, nonmonetary assets retain a higher historical basis when the currency is devalued. The higher historical basis results in incremental expense being recognized when the nonmonetary assets are consumed. In the second half of 2018, we recognized $8.0 million in pretax charges related to highly inflationary accounting, including currency remeasurement losses of $6.2 million. In 2019, we recognized $14.5 million in pretax charges related to highly inflationary accounting, including currency remeasurement losses of $11.3 million. These amounts are excluded from non-GAAP results.

Internal loss A former non-management employee in our U.S. global services operations embezzled funds from Brink's in prior years. Except for a small deductible amount, the amount of the internal loss related to the embezzlement was covered by our insurance. In an effort to cover up the embezzlement, the former employee intentionally misstated the underlying accounts receivable subledger data. In 2019, we incurred $4.5 million in costs (primarily third party expenses) to reconstruct the accounts receivables subledger. In the third quarter of 2019, we were able to identify $4.0 million of revenues billed and collected in prior periods which had never been recorded in the general ledger. We also identified and recorded $0.3 million in bank fees, which had been incurred in prior periods. The rebuild of the subledger was completed during the third quarter of 2019. Based on the reconstructed subledger, we were able to analyze and quantify the uncollected receivables from prior periods. Although we plan to attempt to collect these receivables, we estimated an increase to bad debt expense of $13.7 million in the third quarter of 2019. The estimate of the allowance for doubtful accounts was adjusted in the fourth quarter of 2019 for an additional $6.4 million and will be adjusted in future periods, if needed, as assumptions related to the collectability of these accounts receivable change.  Out of the total $20.1 million in bad debt expense recorded in the second half of 2019, $19.2 million represented an allowance on $34.0 million of accounts receivable or 56%. Due to the unusual nature of this internal loss and the related errors in the subledger data, along with the fact that management has excluded these amounts when evaluating internal performance, we have excluded these net charges from segment and non-GAAP results.
Reporting compliance Certain compliance costs (primarily third party expenses) are excluded from non-GAAP results. These costs relate to the implementation and January 1, 2019 adoption of the new lease accounting standard ($2.7 million in 2018 and $1.8 million in 2019) and the mitigation of material weaknesses ($1.8 million in 2018 and $0.3 million in 2019).

Non-GAAP Results Reconciled to GAAP (Unaudited)
(In millions, except for percentages and per share amounts)

Non-GAAP results described in this press release are financial measures that are not required by or presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The purpose of the Non-GAAP results is to report financial information from the primary operations of our business by excluding the effects of certain income and expenses that do not reflect the ordinary earnings of our operations. The specific items excluded have not been allocated to segments, are described on page 9 and in more detail in our Form 10-K, and are reconciled to comparable GAAP measures below. In addition, we refer to non-GAAP constant currency amounts, which represent current period results and forecasts at prior period exchange rates.

Non-GAAP results adjust the quarterly Non-GAAP tax rates so that the Non-GAAP tax rate in each of the quarters is equal to the full-year estimated Non-GAAP tax rate. The full-year Non-GAAP tax rate in both years excludes certain pretax and income tax amounts. Amounts reported for prior periods have been updated in this report to present information consistently for all periods presented.

The 2020 Non-GAAP outlook amounts for provision for income taxes, income (loss) from continuing operations, EPS from continuing operations, effective income tax rate and Adjusted EBITDA cannot be reconciled to GAAP without unreasonable effort. We cannot reconcile these amounts to GAAP because we are unable to accurately forecast the impact of highly inflationary accounting on our Argentina operations or other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items for which the timing and amounts are currently under review, such as future restructuring actions. The impact of highly inflationary accounting and other potential Non-GAAP adjusting items could be significant to our GAAP results.

The Non-GAAP financial measures are intended to provide investors with a supplemental comparison of our operating results and trends for the periods presented. Our management believes these measures are also useful to investors as such measures allow investors to evaluate our performance using the same metrics that our management uses to evaluate past performance and prospects for future performance. We do not consider these items to be reflective of our core operating performance due to the variability of such items from period-to-period in terms of size, nature and significance. Additionally, non-GAAP results are utilized as performance measures in certain management incentive compensation plans.

(a)
See “Other Items Not Allocated To Segments” on pages 8-9 for details. We do not consider these items to be reflective of our core operating performance due to the variability of such items from period-to-period in terms of size, nature and significance.
(b)
Non-GAAP income from continuing operations and non-GAAP EPS have been adjusted to reflect an effective income tax rate in each interim period equal to the full-year non-GAAP effective income tax rate. The full-year non-GAAP effective tax rate was 31.4% for 2019 and 34.2% for 2018.
(c)
Our U.S. retirement plans are frozen and costs related to these plans are excluded from non-GAAP results. Certain non-U.S. operations also have retirement plans. Settlement charges related to these non-U.S. plans are also excluded from non-GAAP results.
(d)
Represents the estimated impact of tax legislation enacted into law in the fourth quarter of 2017.  This primarily relates to the U.S. Tax Reform expense from the remeasurement of our net deferred tax assets. The 2018 amount represents a benefit associated with reversing a portion of the 2017 estimated impact as a result of guidance issued by U.S. authorities.
(e)
The non-GAAP tax rate excludes the 2019 foreign tax benefits that resulted from a transaction that accelerated U.S. tax in 2015.
(f)
Effective June 30, 2018, we deconsolidated our investment in Venezuelan subsidiaries and recognized a pretax charge of $126.7 million.
(g)
Due to reorganization and restructuring activities, there was a $7.7 million non-GAAP adjustment to share-based compensation in 2019 and $0.1 million in the fourth quarter and full-year of 2018. There is no difference between GAAP and non-GAAP share-based compensation amounts for the other periods presented.
(h)
Adjusted EBITDA is defined as non-GAAP income from continuing operations excluding the impact of non-GAAP interest expense, non-GAAP income tax provision, non-GAAP depreciation and amortization and non-GAAP share-based compensation.
(i)
Because we reported a loss from continuing operations on a GAAP basis in the second quarter of 2018, full year 2018 and the fourth quarter of 2019, GAAP EPS was calculated using basic shares. However, as we reported income from continuing operations on a non-GAAP basis in the second quarter of 2018, full year 2018 and fourth quarter of 2019, non-GAAP EPS was calculated using diluted shares.
(j)
Post-deconsolidation funding of ongoing costs related to our Venezuelan operations was $0.9 million in 2019 ($0.6 million in the second half of 2018) and was expensed as incurred and reported in interest and other nonoperating income (expense). We do not expect any future funding of the Venezuela business, as long as current U.S. sanctions remain in effect.
(k)
Gain on termination of a mining lease obligation related to former coal operations. We have no remaining mining leases.
