Flowserve Corporation Reports Third Quarter 2018 Results

Flowserve Corporation (NYSE: FLS), a leading provider of flow control products and services for the global infrastructure markets, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Third Quarter 2018 Highlights (all comparisons to the 2017 third quarter, unless otherwise noted)

  • Reported Earnings Per Share (EPS) of $0.21 and Adjusted EPS[1] of $0.49
    • Reported EPS includes pre-tax adjusted items of approximately $47 million, primarily related to realignment and transformation expenses, a loss on previously announced divestitures and below-the-line foreign exchange impacts
    • Adjusted EPS increased 32.4%, and 19.5% on a sequential basis
  • Sales were $953 million, up 7.8%, or 8.8% on a constant currency basis and included approximately 1% negative impact related to divested businesses
    • Aftermarket sales were $457 million, up 3.9%, or 5.0% on a constant currency basis
    • Original equipment sales were $496 million, up 11.8%, or 12.5% constant currency
  • Reported gross and operating margins of 32.4% and 6.5%
    • Adjusted gross and operating margins[2] increased 130 and 160 basis points to 33.2% and 11.0%, respectively – the highest levels since the 2016 fourth quarter
  • Total bookings exceeded $1.0 billion, up 13.2%, or 14.1% on a constant currency basis, and included approximately 1% negative impact related to divested businesses
    • Aftermarket bookings were $507 million, or 50% of total bookings, up 11.6%, or 13.0% on a constant currency basis
    • Original equipment bookings were $504 million, up 14.8%, or 15.3% on a constant currency basis
  • Backlog at September 30, 2018 was $1.9 billion, up 1.4% versus June 30, 2018 backlog

We delivered solid results in the third quarter, including our second consecutive quarter with bookings over $1 billion. With a book-to-bill of 1.06, we increased sequential backlog and grew year-over-year revenues by 7.8%, while also delivering annual and sequential improvement in our adjusted profit margins, said Scott Rowe, Flowserves president and chief executive officer.

Our Flowserve 2.0 transformation strategy is fundamentally changing the way we think, act and operate across our organization, Rowe continued. While were still early in the companys transformational journey, we expect that our continued progress on these growth and operational initiatives will further position Flowserve to more fully capitalize on the expected improvement in our core energy markets.

Based on our solid performance in the first three quarters of 2018 and our confidence in delivering on our fourth quarter commitments, Flowserve today revised its full year guidance, including raising our Adjusted EPS[3] target range to $1.65 to $1.75 from $1.50 to $1.70, added Lee Eckert, Flowserves senior vice president and chief financial officer.

Rowe concluded, As we look ahead to 2019, we are building operating momentum to better capture the growth and value-creation potential inherent in our business. We expect to continue to simplify our business model, improve our productivity, lower our cost position and deliver enhanced long-term value for our customers, employees and shareholders.

Revised 2018 Guidance

Flowserve today revised its guidance metrics as described hereafter. The company now expects full year 2018 revenues to increase year-over-year in a range between 5% to 7%, which includes an approximate 1% benefit from currency offset by an approximate 1% negative impact from divestitures. GAAP EPS is now forecast between $0.75 to $0.85, while the Adjusted EPS target range was increased to $1.65 to $1.75. The company expects a full year adjusted tax rate between 27%-28%.

[1] See Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures table for detailed reconciliation of reported results to adjusted measures.
[2] Adjusted gross and operating margins are calculated by dividing adjusted gross profit and operating income, respectively, by revenues. Adjusted gross profit and adjusted operating income are derived by excluding the adjusted items. See reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures table for detailed reconciliation.
[3] Adjusted 2018 EPS will exclude the Companys realignment expenses, the impact from other specific discrete events and below-the-line foreign currency effects and utilizes year-end 2017 FX rates and approximately 132 million fully diluted shares.
_ FX headwind is calculated by comparing the difference between the actual average FX rates of 2018 and the year-end 2017 spot rates both as applied to our 2018 expectations, divided by the number of shares expected for 2018.

Safe Harbor Statement: This news release includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, as amended. Words or phrases such as, “may,” “should,” “expects,” “could,” “intends,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “estimates,” “believes,” “forecasts,” “predicts” or other similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, which include, without limitation, earnings forecasts, statements relating to our business strategy and statements of expectations, beliefs, future plans and strategies and anticipated developments concerning our industry, business, operations and financial performance and condition.

The forward-looking statements included in this news release are based on our current expectations, projections, estimates and assumptions. These statements are only predictions, not guarantees. Such forward-looking statements are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict. These risks and uncertainties may cause actual results to differ materially from what is forecast in such forward-looking statements, and include, without limitation, the following: a portion of our bookings may not lead to completed sales, and our ability to convert bookings into revenues at acceptable profit margins; changes in global economic conditions and the potential for unexpected cancellations or delays of customer orders in our reported backlog; our dependence on our customers ability to make required capital investment and maintenance expenditures; risks associated with cost overruns on fixed-fee projects and in taking customer orders for large complex custom engineered products; the substantial dependence of our sales on the success of the oil and gas, chemical, power generation and water management industries; the adverse impact of volatile raw materials prices on our products and operating margins; economic, political and other risks associated with our international operations, including military actions or trade embargoes that could affect customer markets, particularly North African, Russian and Middle Eastern markets and global oil and gas producers, and non-compliance with U.S. export/re-export control, foreign corrupt practice laws, economic sanctions and import laws and regulations; increased aging and slower collection of receivables, particularly in Latin America and other emerging markets; our exposure to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, including in hyperinflationary countries such as Venezuela and Argentina; our furnishing of products and services to nuclear power plant facilities and other critical processes; potential adverse consequences resulting from litigation to which we are a party, such as litigation involving asbestos-containing material claims; a foreign government investigation regarding our participation in the United Nations Oil-for-Food Program; expectations regarding acquisitions and the integration of acquired businesses; our relative geographical profitability and its impact on our utilization of deferred tax assets, including foreign tax credits; the potential adverse impact of an impairment in the carrying value of goodwill or other intangible assets; our dependence upon third-party suppliers whose failure to perform timely could adversely affect our business operations; the highly competitive nature of the markets in which we operate; environmental compliance costs and liabilities; potential work stoppages and other labor matters; access to public and private sources of debt financing; our inability to protect our intellectual property in the U.S., as well as in foreign countries; obligations under our defined benefit pension plans; our internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements because of its inherent limitations, including the possibility of human error, the circumvention or overriding of controls, or fraud; the recording of increased deferred tax asset valuation allowances in the future or the impact of tax law changes on such deferred tax assets could affect our operating results; if we are not able to successfully execute and realize the expected financial benefits from our strategic realignment and other cost-savings initiatives, our business could be adversely affected; ineffective internal controls could impact the accuracy and timely reporting of our business and financial results; and other factors described from time to time in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

All forward-looking statements included in this news release are based on information available to us on the date hereof, and we assume no obligation to update any forward-looking statement.

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). However, management believes that non-GAAP financial measures which exclude certain non-recurring items present additional useful comparisons between current results and results in prior operating periods, providing investors with a clearer view of the underlying trends of the business. Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating, planning and compensation decisions and in evaluating the Company’s performance. Throughout our materials we refer to non-GAAP measures as Adjusted. Non-GAAP financial measures, which may be inconsistent with similarly captioned measures presented by other companies, should be viewed in addition to, and not as a substitute for, the Companys reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP.
