Diluted Earnings Per Share of $1.40

Segment Income Margins Expanded 70 points to 11.3%

PR Newswire

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SPX Corporation (NYSE:SPW) today reported results for the third quarter ended September 28, 2013:

Third Quarter Overview:

  • Revenues declined 2.6% to $1.15 billion from $1.18 billion in the year-ago quarter. Organic revenues* decreased 2.1% and currency fluctuations decreased revenues by 0.5%.
  • Segment income and margins were $129.5 million and 11.3%, compared to $124.2 million and 10.6% in the year-ago quarter.
  • Diluted net income per share was $1.40, compared to $1.16 in the year-ago quarter.
  • Diluted net income per share from continuing operations was $1.28, compared to $0.92 in the year-ago quarter.
  • Diluted net income per share from discontinued operations was $0.12 and related to certain businesses first reported as discontinued operations in Q3 2013.
  • Net cash from continuing operations was $148.8 million, compared to net cash from continuing operations of $37.8 million in the year-ago quarter.
  • Free cash flow from continuing operations* was $140.8 million, compared to free cash flow from continuing operations of $17.2 million in the year-ago quarter.

"Our primary focus this year is on operational improvement, and I'm pleased with the continued progress we made towards this commitment in the third quarter," said Chris Kearney, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of SPX.

"Q3 diluted earnings per share of $1.40 exceeded our guidance range of $1.20 to $1.30 per share.  This included $0.12 per share of earnings from certain non-Flow businesses that we first reported as discontinued operations in the third quarter.  We have committed to a plan to divest these businesses within the next twelve months.  Divestitures of non-Flow businesses continue to be a key part of our strategy as we continue to increase our focus on our Flow Technology platforms.

Kearney continued, "Q3 earnings per share from continuing operations increased 39 percent over the prior year driven by our capital allocation and cost reduction actions, as well as improved operating execution.  In aggregate, our segment income margins expanded 70 points over the prior year, highlighted by improved performance at our Industrial and Flow segments. 

"We had a strong free cash flow quarter and are on track to end the year with approximately $625 million of cash on hand.  Additionally, our backlog increased 3% sequentially, driven by a record order quarter for our Flow Technology segment, highlighted by an increase in large project awards for food and beverage systems and oil and gas pumps."

CONTINUING OPERATIONS OVERVIEW

Flow Technology  

Revenues for the third quarter of 2013 were $651.6 million compared to $648.6 million in the third quarter of 2012, an increase of $3.0 million, or 0.5%.  Organic revenues* increased 0.3%, while currency fluctuations increased revenues by 0.2%.  The organic revenue growth was driven by increased sales of oil and gas valves and pumps into North America and Europe.  This growth was largely offset by lower sales of food and beverage systems, primarily due to timing of large dairy projects in Asia Pacific.

Segment income was $83.1 million, or 12.8% of revenues, in the third quarter of 2013 compared to $78.1 million, or 12.0% of revenues, in the third quarter of 2012. The increase in segment income and margin was due to cost reductions associated with restructuring actions and improved operating execution.

Thermal Equipment and Services

Revenues for the third quarter of 2013 were $324.1 million compared to $375.5 million in the third quarter of 2012, a decrease of $51.4 million, or 13.7%.  Organic revenues* declined 11.8%, while currency fluctuations decreased revenues by 1.9%.  The organic revenue decline was primarily due to the expected ramp down of our large power projects in South Africa and timing of large retrofit projects.

Segment income was $21.7 million, or 6.7% of revenues, in the third quarter of 2013 compared to $29.1 million, or 7.7% of revenues, in the third quarter of 2012.  The decrease in segment income and margin was primarily due to the organic revenue decline described above, offset partially by improved execution and cost reductions from restructuring actions initiated in the first half of 2013.

Industrial Products and Services and Other

Revenues for the third quarter of 2013 were $170.1 million compared to $152.6 million in the third quarter of 2012, an increase of $17.5 million, or 11.5%.  Organic revenues* increased 11.3%, while currency fluctuations increased revenues by 0.2%.  The increase in organic revenue was driven primarily by increased sales of fare collection systems and power transformers.

Segment income was $24.7 million, or 14.5% of revenues, in the third quarter of 2013 compared to $17.0 million, or 11.1% of revenues, in the third quarter of 2012.  The increase in income and margin was due primarily to leverage on the organic revenue growth described above as well as improved operational execution at our power transformer business.

Updated Full Year 2013 Expectations from Continuing Operations

Note:  These targets now exclude businesses first reported as discontinued operations in Q3 2013

  • Revenues are expected to decline 1% to 3% versus the prior year.
  • Segment income margins are expected to increase between 60 and 80 basis points.
  • Guidance for earnings per share from continuing operations was adjusted to exclude earnings from businesses discontinued in Q3 2013 and to also reflect a higher level of expected restructuring expense.  The updated guidance range for EPS from continuing operations is now $3.80 to $3.95 per share.  
  • The full year guidance for adjusted free cash flow from continuing operations* is now $250 to $280 million.     

OTHER ITEMS

Discontinued Operations:  During the third quarter, the company committed to a plan to divest certain non-strategic businesses that were previously reported within Industrial Products and Services and Other.  These businesses were first reported as discontinued operations, for all periods presented, in Q3 2013. 

Dividend:  On August 22, 2013, the company announced that its Board of Directors had declared a quarterly dividend of $0.25 per common share to shareholders of record on September 16, 2013, which was paid on October 2, 2013.
