Kaydon Corporation Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results
ANN ARBOR, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Kaydon Corporation (NYS: KDN) today announced its results for the second fiscal quarter ended June 29, 2013.
Sales in the second quarter of 2013 were $117.3 million, compared to sales of $124.4 million in the second quarter of 2012.
Diluted earnings per share on a GAAP basis in the second quarter of each of 2013 and 2012 equaled $0.36. Adjusted earnings per share, as defined below, was $0.42 in both the second quarter of 2013 and the second quarter of 2012.
Adjusted EBITDA, as defined below, was $25.6 million during the second quarter of 2013, compared to $27.3 million, during the second quarter of 2012. Free cash flow, as defined below, for the second quarter of 2013 was $18.7 million compared to $13.3 million in the second quarter of 2012.
Adjusted gross margin was 38.6 percent in the second quarter of 2013, compared to 33.7 percent in the second quarter of 2012, as the Company continues to benefit from the increased operating leverage that has resulted from the restructuring activities undertaken in late 2012 and from ongoing operational improvements.
This press release includes certain non-GAAP measures, including adjusted gross margin, adjusted earnings per share, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow. Readers should refer to the attached Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures exhibit for the reconciliations of the applicable GAAP measures to the non-GAAP measures presented.
Adjustments to GAAP results include certain items management considers in evaluating operating performance in each period. During the second quarter of 2013, Kaydon incurred $1.2 million of costs associated with due diligence and restructuring activities, and $1.2 million of non-cash amortization of previously incurred net actuarial losses related to postretirement benefit plans. During the current quarter the Company reviewed, and continues to review, several potential acquisitions. During the second quarter of 2012, adjustments included $1.6 million of acquisition-related costs primarily related to the Fabreeka acquisition and $1.1 million of non-cash amortization of previously incurred net actuarial losses related to postretirement benefit plans.
Orders and Backlog
Orders were $123.2 million in the second quarter of 2013, compared to $112.8 million in the second quarter of 2012 and $119.4 million in the first quarter of 2013. Backlog at June 29, 2013 was $158.1 million, compared to $169.5 million at June 30, 2012.
Financial Position and Free Cash Flow
Free cash flow was $18.7 million in the second quarter of 2013, compared to $13.3 million in the second quarter of 2012. During the quarter, the Company repaid $7.8 million of debt while paying dividends of $6.4 million.
As of June 29, 2013, the Company had cash and cash equivalents totaling $69.9 million and total borrowings outstanding of $164.7 million, resulting in net debt of $94.8 million.
James O'Leary, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer commented, "The second quarter of 2013 was solid as we continue to successfully manage the variables within our control. Relative to the comparable quarter of 2012, we saw improved margins, free cash flow and orders despite a still challenging economic environment. In aggregate, bookings for our industrial businesses were solid with trends consistent with this year's first quarter. As expected, military bookings were lower due to anticipated reductions in military activity and timing. However, this was more than offset by strong wind energy bookings in the quarter, supporting our view that the wind energy business has bottomed and will continue to show signs of improvement as we look a few quarters forward.
"Like most in the industrial space, we anticipate gradual improvement in the latter half of the year. While we wait for clearer signs of this pickup in economic activity, our principal focus remains managing the things within our control while we explore growth opportunities on the acquisition front. Our operational focus will translate in continued strength in both free cash flow and margins, as demonstrated so far this year, and further improvement when economic growth picks up in a more pronounced and sustained fashion."
Kaydon Corporation is a leading designer and manufacturer of custom engineered, performance-critical products, supplying a broad and diverse group of industrial, military, aerospace, medical, semiconductor and alternative energy equipment, and aftermarket customers.
