CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- EnPro Industries (NYS: NPO) today reported that segment profits, segment profit margins and net income improved in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the fourth quarter of 2011, despite continued softness in many of the markets served by the company and no organic growth in sales. Segment profits rose to $30.3 million from $25.3 million a year ago and segment profit margins increased to 10.8% from 9.3% a year ago.
Net income in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $5.7 million, or $0.27 a share. In the fourth quarter of 2011, the company reported net income of $2.6 million, or $0.12 a share. Before selected items, including interest due to Garlock Sealing Technologies (GST), a deconsolidated subsidiary, and restructuring costs, net income in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $12.8 million, or $0.59 a share, compared to $7.7 million, or $0.37 a share, in the fourth quarter of 2011.
A table attached to this press release shows the effect of selected items on net income and earnings per share in the fourth quarters and full years of 2012 and 2011. All per share amounts in this release are stated on a diluted basis. The results of GST and its subsidiaries were deconsolidated effective June 5, 2010, when GST filed a voluntary petition for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code.
Sales in the fourth quarter of 2012 were $279.3 million, an increase of about 3% over the fourth quarter of 2011, when sales were $271.4 million. The inclusion of the results of Motorwheel, a business the company acquired in the second quarter of 2012, increased fourth quarter 2012 sales by about 4% in comparison to the fourth quarter of 2011. Excluding the sales of Motorwheel and the effect of foreign exchange, sales were about the same in the two quarters, reflecting increased sales in the company's Engine Products and Services segment offset by lower volumes in its Sealing Products and Engineered Products segments.
Adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and other selected items (EBITDA) were $38.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, a 35% improvement over the fourth quarter of 2011, when adjusted EBITDA was $28.4 million.
Full Year Results
Sales in 2012 were $ 1.18 billion or about 7% higher than they were in 2011, when they were $1.11 billion. The increase in sales was driven by acquisitions, which contributed growth of 9% in 2012. Before the benefit of acquisitions and the negative effect of foreign exchange rates, sales grew about 1% in 2012, reflecting modestly higher activity in the company's Sealing Products segment and increased sales in its Engine Products and Services segment, partially offset by lower activity levels in the Engineered Products segment.
Net income in 2012 was $41.0 million, or $1.90 a share, a decrease from 2011 when net income was $44.2 million, or $2.06 a share. Before selected items, including interest due to GST and restructuring costs, 2012 net income was $66.2 million, or $3.07 a share, compared to $61.6 million, or $2.87 a share, in 2011.
Adjusted EBITDA in 2012 was $172.2 million, an 11% increase over 2011 when adjusted EBITDA was $155.2 million.
Sealing Products Segment
The increase in Sealing Products segment sales in the fourth quarter of 2012 reflects the contribution of Motorwheel, which increased sales by $9.8 million, or 7%, over the fourth quarter of 2011. However, the contribution of Motorwheel was more than offset by unfavorable foreign exchange and by lower volumes as market conditions softened from a year ago at all operations in the segment. Excluding Motorwheel and the effect of foreign exchange, the segment's sales were 4% lower in the fourth quarter of 2012 than they were in the fourth quarter of 2011.
Although volumes declined, the segment's profits improved by 34% over the fourth quarter of 2011. Lower costs, better pricing and the contribution of Motorwheel more than offset the effect of lower volumes. The segment also benefited from a reduction in restructuring and other unusual costs, which were about $0.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared with $1.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. As segment profits increased, profit margins improved to 14.0% in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to 10.7% in the fourth quarter of 2011.
For the full year of 2012, sales in the Sealing Products segment improved by 14%, or $74.2 million, over 2011. The increase reflects sales of $81.4 million from acquisitions, which accounted for growth of 15% in the segment's sales, but was partially offset by unfavorable foreign exchange, which reduced sales by 2%. Excluding the effects of acquisitions and foreign exchange, the segment's sales increased by about 1% in 2012 as improved pricing helped to offset lower volumes.
The segment's profits increased 9% in 2012, reflecting a contribution of 10% from acquisitions, partially offset by unfavorable foreign exchange, which reduced profits by 2%. Excluding acquisitions and foreign exchange, segment profits were about the same as in 2011. Segment profit margins declined to 14.6% from 15.2% a year ago. The segment recorded restructuring and other unusual expense of $2.7 million in 2012 compared with $3.2 million in 2011.
Engineered Products Segment
Engineered Products segment sales were 13% lower in the fourth quarter of 2012 than in the fourth quarter of 2011. The decrease primarily reflects continued weak demand in the segment's European automotive, industrial and refining markets and in certain North American markets, including the natural gas regions of Western Canada. About 11 percentage points of the decline in sales is a reflection of weaker volumes; the two remaining percentage points were the result of unfavorable foreign exchange translation.
Declining volumes and higher restructuring and other unusual costs led segment profits to decline to $1.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 from $3.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Restructuring costs and other unusual expenses in the segment totaled $1.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $0.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, and segment profit margins declined to 1.5% from 3.4%.
For the full year of 2012, sales in the Engineered Products segment decreased by 6% compared to the full year of 2011. The decrease was driven by reduced demand and unfavorable foreign currency translation, which each reduced sales by about 4%. Those factors were partially offset by the benefit of acquisitions, which contributed sales growth of about 2% in 2012.
Segment profits for the full year declined as volumes fell and as the segment recorded higher restructuring and other unusual expenses. Segment profit margins for the full year of 2012 were 5.6% compared to 7.6% in 2011.
Engine Products and Services Segment
Sales in the Engine Products and Services segment were 42% higher in the fourth quarter of 2012 than in the fourth quarter of 2011. The improvement was primarily driven by an increase in revenues recognized under percentage of completion accounting. Parts sales and sales of environmental upgrades also grew compared to a year ago. The segment's profits improved as sales increased; however, segment margins declined compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 because of a less profitable product mix as engine revenues grew.
For the full year of 2012, the segment's sales improved by 15% over 2011 as engine revenues reported under percentage of completion accounting increased and as the segment also reported engine revenues under completed contract accounting. Parts sales also increased in 2012.
Parts sales improved due to increased demand from government and nuclear power markets and sales of environmental upgrades also were higher. The increases were partially offset by lower service revenues.
The segment's profits improved by 28% as engine revenues grew and as the segment benefited from lower warranty costs and higher parts sales. Segment margins improved to 18.3% in 2012 from 16.5% in 2011.

Third-party sales at the deconsolidated operations of GST and its subsidiaries declined by 2% from the fourth quarter of 2011 primarily because activity in the subsidiary's North American markets slowed in the fourth quarter of 2012. Operating profits also declined as demand weakened and volumes decreased. Earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization and asbestos related expense (EBITDA-A) at GST and its subsidiaries was $11.8 million in the quarter.
For the full year of 2012, the third-party sales of GST and its subsidiaries increased by 3% over the full year of 2011. The improvement was driven primarily by increased activity in the business' markets over the first three quarters of 2012 and better pricing for the business' products. Operating profits and operating profit margins in 2012 increased as they benefited from higher volumes as well as cost reductions and price improvements. For the full year of 2012, EBITDA-A at GST and its subsidiaries was $53.1 million.
GST and its subsidiaries completed the year with cash and long-term investments totaling $153.6 million.
EnPro's cash balance increased to $53.9 million at December 31, 2012 from $30.7 million at December 31, 2011. Operating activity provided cash of $118.2 million in 2012 compared to $81.4 million in 2011, primarily as a result of lower working capital needs. The company's long-term debt, excluding notes payable to GST, stood at $185.3 million at the end of 2012 compared to $150.2 million at the end of 2011. The increase primarily reflects borrowings against the company's revolving credit agreement to complete the Motorwheel acquisition in the second quarter of 2012. Borrowings against the facility stood at about $34 million at the end of the fourth quarter compared to about $85 million immediately after the Motorwheel acquisition. Borrowing availability under the agreement was about $91 million at December 31, 2012.
Although there are indications the company's markets may improve in the second half of 2013, EnPro expects conditions it encountered in the second half of 2012 to persist into the first half of 2013. In the first quarter of 2013, EnPro expects sales and segment profit to be less than they were in the first quarter of 2012, when activity in its markets and demand for its products were significantly above current levels.
Sales will benefit from the inclusion of Motorwheel in the first quarter; however, the company anticipates that benefit will be more than offset by soft demand from the markets served by the Sealing Products and Engineered Products segments and lower sales in the Engine Products and Services segment. The company expects Engine Products and Services sales to be 25% to 30% below the first quarter of 2012, when engine revenues were recognized under both percentage of completion and completed contract accounting.
EnPro expects segment profit margins in the first quarter of 2013 will reflect lower volumes and a less profitable product mix in the Sealing Products segment.
The company believes conditions may improve in its industrial markets by the second half of 2013. However, it anticipates any growth in sales to those markets will be offset by a decline in full year sales in the Engine Products and Services segment. Although the company currently expects the segment to ship a higher number of engines in 2013 than was shipped in 2012, revenues for these engines will be recognized only under percentage of completion accounting. The company expects the segment's 2013 sales to decline by about 15% in comparison to 2012.
"We are well prepared to meet current conditions in our markets and to take advantage of improvements in them as the year progresses," said Steve Macadam, president and chief executive officer of EnPro. "Our brands are very strong, we have exciting opportunities in our markets and we intend to continue towards our goals for building long-term value at EnPro."

Deconsolidation of Garlock Sealing Technologies LLC
Results for the fourth quarters and full years of 2012 and 2011 reflect the deconsolidation of Garlock Sealing Technologies LLC (GST) and its subsidiaries, effective June 5, 2010, when GST filed a voluntary petition under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code to begin a process in pursuit of an efficient and permanent resolution to all current and future asbestos claims against it.
