    Commentary:

    “Our operations are running globally as we continue to do our part to supply products to first responders, healthcare providers, transportation, food processing and many other critical industries,” said Brady’s President and Chief Executive Officer, J. Michael Nauman. “Our outlook has improved and to supplement organic sales growth, we are investing in sales, marketing and new product development that will help accelerate growth in the back half of this fiscal year and into the future.   We are also actively investigating acquisitions that complement our strategic growth initiatives.   Brady is in a strong financial position and we are using this strong financial position to set ourselves up for strong growth as we exit from the pandemic.”

    “Brady continues to generate strong cash flow and has a very strong balance sheet. As of January 31, 2021, we had $277.6 million of cash on hand and no outstanding debt,” said Brady’s Chief Financial Officer, Aaron Pearce. “We generated $36.1 million of cash flow from operating activities this quarter, which was an increase of 153 percent compared to last year’s second quarter. Positively impacting our cash flow this quarter were benefits from improved working capital management and a reduction in incentive-based compensation payments when compared to the second quarter of last year. This quarter, we also returned $12.3 million to our shareholders in the form of dividends and share buybacks. Although the economy is still challenged, we do expect the general trend of improving economic conditions to continue over the next several quarters. Regardless of what happens with the macro economy, Brady’s strong balance sheet and cash generation position us well for future financial success.”

    Fiscal 2021 Guidance:

    The Company expects earnings per diluted Class A Nonvoting Common Share to range from $2.48 to $2.58 for the full fiscal year ending July 31, 2021. This equates to diluted earnings per share in the range of $1.25 to $1.35 in the second half of the fiscal year ending July 31, 2021. The Company also expects organic sales growth to be in the mid-single digits in the second half of fiscal 2021. This guidance is based on foreign currency exchange rates as of January 31, 2021 and assumes a continued economic recovery.

For Brady, uncertainties arise from: adverse impacts of the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) pandemic or other pandemics; decreased demand for our products; our ability to compete effectively or to successfully execute our strategy; Brady’s ability to develop technologically advanced products that meet customer demands; raw material and other cost increases; difficulties in protecting our websites, networks, and systems against security breaches; extensive regulations by U.S. and non-U.S. governmental and self-regulatory entities; risks associated with the loss of key employees; divestitures and contingent liabilities from divestitures; Brady’s ability to properly identify, integrate, and grow acquired companies; litigation, including product liability claims; foreign currency fluctuations; potential write-offs of Brady’s goodwill and other intangible assets; changes in tax legislation and tax rates; differing interests of voting and non-voting shareholders; numerous other matters of national, regional and global scale, including major public health issues and those of a political, economic, business, competitive, and regulatory nature contained from time to time in Brady’s U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including, but not limited to, those factors listed in the “Risk Factors” section within Item 1A of Part I of Brady’s Form 10-K for the year ended July 31, 2020 and subsequent Form 10-Q filings.

    These uncertainties may cause Brady's actual future results to be materially different than those expressed in its forward-looking statements. Brady does not undertake to update its forward-looking statements except as required by law.
