CIRCOR Reports Second-Quarter 2013 Financial Results

BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CIRCOR International, Inc. (NYS: CIR) , a leading provider of valves and other highly engineered products for markets including oil & gas, power generation and aerospace, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Second Quarter 2013 Highlights

  • Adjusted operating margin up 160 basis points to 10%, highest in four years
  • Adjusted EPS of $0.81 increased 27%
  • Organic revenue growth of 2%
  • Secured large specialty high pressure ball valve order for emerging FPSO technology
  • Completed previously announced restructuring - on track to deliver annualized savings of $7 million
  • Announced first step of CIRCOR simplification process

Management Comments

"We delivered a strong quarter due to our continued focus on growth, margin expansion and cash generation," said Scott Buckhout, CIRCOR's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Revenue increased sequentially in all three segments, while our adjusted operating margin expanded to 10% -- our highest level in four years.

"Our strategy to drive growth in the most innovative parts of our markets is delivering results. During the second quarter, we won a large order for high pressure ball valves to be used for emerging floating production, storage and off-loading technology.

"We are also pleased to have completed our previously announced restructuring initiatives on time and under budget. Through these projects, we delivered more than $1 million of savings in the second quarter and are on pace to deliver the $7 million of annualized savings that we had projected."

Added Buckhout, "Today we are announcing the first step of a new initiative to simplify CIRCOR, thereby reducing costs, growing margins and enhancing shareholder value. We are implementing three new restructuring actions designed to further reduce complexity and cost. This includes closing two facilities and downsizing another, reducing our overhead, eliminating legacy ERP systems, and increasing the utilization of our low cost manufacturing and design capabilities in India. We expect these actions will result in annualized savings of approximately $4 million."

Second Quarter Results

Revenues for the second quarter of 2013 increased 2% to $223.6 million, from $219.9 million in the second quarter of 2012. Net income for the second quarter of 2013, including the impact of special charges of $2.0 million, was $12.7 million, or $0.72 per diluted share, compared with net income of $11.1 million, or $0.64 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2012. Adjusted earnings per diluted share in the second quarter of 2013, excluding the impact of the special charges, was $0.81, a 27% increase compared with $0.64 in the prior year's second-quarter.

The Company received orders totaling $200.1 million during the second quarter of 2013, a decrease of 12% compared with the second quarter of 2012, due primarily to lower Energy orders in the international project business. The Energy business experienced a particularly difficult comparison with last year when CIRCOR booked a $22 million order in the large project business. Backlog as of June 30, 2013 increased 3% to $433.5 million from June 30, 2012.

During the second quarter of 2013, the Company generated $9.5 million of free cash flow, up $4.4 million from the same period in 2012.

Third Quarter Guidance

For the third quarter of 2013, the Company expects revenues to be in the range of $212 to $218 million. In addition, CIRCOR expects to record special charges comprised of a gain of approximately $3.1 million related to a settlement on the Brazil arbitration and restructuring related-charges of between $1.5 and $1.7 million. Excluding these charges, adjusted earnings are expected to be in the range of $0.76 to $0.83 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2013.

Segment Results

Energy

Energy segment revenues decreased 2% to $110.8 million for the second quarter versus the same period in 2012.

For the second quarter of 2013, the Energy segment's adjusted operating margin increased 270 basis points to 13.8% year over year.

Incoming orders for the second quarter of 2013 were $107.2 million, a decrease of 16% year over year, as a result of lower large international project bookings. While the level of large international project inquiries and quoting remains comparable to 2012, the time to finalize orders from the original quotes has been increasing. This is likely the result of projects being delayed. In addition, the comparison with the second quarter of 2012 was difficult due to a $22 million project received in that quarter. Ending backlog totaled $213.7 million, an increase of 8% year over year.

Flow Technologies

Flow Technologies segment revenues increased 6% to $74.6 million for the second quarter of 2013.

Flow Technologies adjusted operating margin for the second quarter of 2013 increased 200 basis points to 14.8%.

Incoming orders for the Flow Technologies segment were $66.0 million for the second quarter of 2013, a decrease of 6% year over year. Ending backlog totaled $67.9 million, a decrease of 9% compared with the same period last year.

Aerospace

Aerospace segment revenues increased 6% to $38.2 million for the second quarter.

Aerospace segment adjusted operating margin for the second quarter of 2013 decreased slightly to 8.6% from 8.8% in the second quarter of 2012. Segment margins were up 510 basis points sequentially as the benefits of the restructuring program started to impact the business.

Incoming orders for the second quarter of 2013 were $26.9 million, a decrease of 6% year over year. Ending backlog totaled $151.9 million, an increase of 1% year over year.
