Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SPX Corporation (NYSE: SPW) today reported results for the first quarter ended March 30, 2013:

First Quarter Highlights:

  • Revenues decreased 1.7% to $1.13 billion from $1.15 billion in the year-ago quarter. Organic revenues* were flat, while completed acquisitions increased revenues by 0.3% and currency fluctuations decreased revenues by 2.0%.
       
  • Segment income and margins were $82.4 million and 7.3%, compared to $83.0 million and 7.2% in the year-ago quarter. 
        
  • Diluted net income per share from continuing operations was $0.20, compared to $0.17 in the year-ago quarter. 
         
  • Net cash used in continuing operations was $57.2 million, compared with $187.2 million in the year-ago quarter. 
         
  • Adjusted free cash flow used in continuing operations* was $51.5 million, compared with a usage of $208.6 million in the year-ago quarter.

"Our first quarter performance was largely comparable with the prior year, but lower than we anticipated. While the performance across most of SPX was fundamentally in line with our expectations, we were disproportionally impacted in a few discrete areas, particularly in our Thermal Segment. We are taking actions to address these areas and improve our performance, including accelerated restructuring plans to address our cost structure in certain European operations," said Christopher J. Kearney, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of SPX.

"Our financial position remains strong and we made good progress on the capital allocation plans we announced in February. In April, we made a $250 million voluntary pension contribution that essentially brings us to a fully funded position in our U.S. qualified pension plan. Additionally, we completed $27 million of open-market share repurchases in the quarter, in line with our target of $200 million of share repurchases for the year. With $1.2 billion of projected liquidity at year-end, and no capital being allocated to acquisitions in 2013, we have ample opportunity to evaluate additional repurchases as the year progresses," Kearney added.

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS – CONTINUING OPERATIONS

Flow Technology 

Revenues for the first quarter of 2013 were $613.0 million compared to $628.1 million in the first quarter of 2012, a decrease of $15.1 million, or 2.4%. Organic revenues* decreased 1.7%, while completed acquisitions and currency fluctuations decreased revenues by 0.7%. Increased supply of components was offset by lower systems-based revenues, as the year-ago quarter benefited from two large projects that were substantially completed in 2012.

Segment income was $55.0 million, or 9.0% of revenues, in the first quarter of 2013 compared to $46.4 million, or 7.4% of revenues, in the first quarter of 2012. The increase in segment income and margin was due primarily to improved execution in our European and U.S. operations. 

Thermal Equipment and Services

Revenues for the first quarter of 2013 were $305.1 million compared to $320.1 million in the first quarter of 2012, a decrease of $15.0 million, or 4.7%.  Organic revenues* decreased 0.2%, while currency fluctuations decreased revenues by 4.5%.

Segment income was $1.7 million, or 0.6% of revenues, in the first quarter of 2013 compared to $10.6 million, or 3.3% of revenues, in the first quarter of 2012. The decrease in segment income and margin was due primarily to lower operating efficiency in Europe as well as unfavorable currency fluctuations, partially offset by increased sales of personal comfort boilers in support of Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. 

Industrial Products and Services and Other

Revenues for the first quarter of 2013 were $215.6 million compared to $205.3 million in the first quarter of 2012, an increase of $10.3 million, or 5.0%, related primarily to increased sales volumes of power transformers. Organic revenues* increased 5.3%, while currency fluctuations decreased revenues by 0.3%.

Segment income was $25.7 million, or 11.9% of revenues, in the first quarter of 2013 compared to $26.0 million, or 12.7% of revenues, in the first quarter of 2012. The decline in margins was due primarily to a lower concentration of higher-margin communication technology projects.

Full Year 2013 Expectations:

  • Revenues are expected to be down 2% to up 3%.
       
  • Segment income margins are forecasted to expand between 40 and 80 basis points.
        
  • Earnings per share from continuing operations are expected to be $4.25 to $4.65, and reflect our operational performance in the first quarter, recent changes in currency rates, and our current view of the macro-economic environment. Our previous earnings per share estimate was $4.60 to $5.10.
             
  • Net cash flow from continuing operations is expected to be $55 million to $95 million.  Adjusted net cash from continuing operations* is expected to be $330 to $370 million and excludes the taxes payable on the sale of Service Solutions and voluntary pension contributions, net of tax.  Capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $90 million. The resulting adjusted free cash flow* range is expected to be between $240 and $280 million.  This performance represents approximately 120% conversion of expected net income.
           
  • Capital allocation plans include $200 million of share repurchases, $27 million of which were completed during the first quarter, and a $250 million voluntary pension contribution that was completed in April.  The cash impact of the voluntary pension contribution, net of taxes, is expected to be $160 million dollars.
