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.
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. The company remains subject to currency translation risk, given its sizeable international operations. Further, decline in new orders and sluggish volumes in the Advanced Plastic Processing Technologies segment remain concerns. Free cash flow will be constrained by higher working capital needs and the capital investment required for restructuring its European manufacturing footprint. Nevertheless, its superior organic sales growth profile, cost cutting efforts and balance sheet deleveraging will ensure sustained earnings growth. Moreover, Milacron Holdings continues to grow though acquisitions.
