Aug 07, 2013, 07:00 ET from AMETEK, Inc.

BERWYN, Pa., Aug. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AMETEK, Inc. (NYSE: AME) today announced second quarter results that established records for operating income, operating margins, net income and diluted earnings per share.  In addition, backlog at June 30, 2013 exceeded $1.1 billion and was an all-time high.  

AMETEK's second quarter 2013 sales of $878.8 million were up 6% over the same period of 2012. Operating income for the second quarter of 2013 was $202.6 million, a 10% increase from the $185.0 million recorded in the same period of 2012.  Operating margins improved 70 basis points to 23.1% in the second quarter of 2013.  Net income increased 13% to $128.3 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, from the second quarter 2012 level of $113.7 million, or $0.47 per diluted share.  

"We are very pleased with our results this quarter given the continued soft economic environment.  We delivered record operating performance as a result of the strength in our long-cycle businesses combined with our Operational Excellence initiatives," noted Frank S. Hermance, AMETEK Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

For the six months ended June 30, 2013, AMETEK sales increased 7% to $1.76 billion from $1.65 billion in the same period of 2012.  Operating income increased 9% to $399.8 million, from $367.8 million earned in the first six months of 2012.  Net income for the first six months was $253.5 million, up 13% from $223.8 million in the same period of 2012.  Diluted earnings per share were $1.03 for the first six months of 2013, up 12% from $0.92 per diluted share in the first six months of 2012. 

Electronic Instruments Group (EIG) For the second quarter of 2013, EIG sales increased 7% to $483.3 million.  Operating income was $129.6 million, compared with $117.7 million in the second quarter of 2012, a 10% increase.  Operating margins for the quarter were 26.8%, up 80 basis points from 26.0% in last year's second quarter.

"EIG had an excellent second quarter.  Sales were up due to strength in our oil and gas and aerospace businesses, combined with contributions from the recently acquired Micro-Poise business.  Operating margins expanded 80 basis points to 26.8%, benefitting from the core sales growth and Operational Excellence initiatives," said Mr. Hermance.

Electromechanical Group (EMG) For the second quarter of 2013, EMG sales increased 6% to $395.5 million.  Operating income in the second quarter was up 6% to a record $83.4 million, compared with $78.8 million in the same period of 2012.  Operating margins were 21.1% in the second quarter of 2013, in line with last year's second quarter.  

"EMG also had a solid second quarter.  Sales were up on strong growth in our Floorcare and Specialty Motors business, along with the contributions from the Dunkermotoren acquisition.  Additionally, operating margins were very strong at 21.1%," commented  Mr. Hermance.

2013 Outlook "We expect sluggish market conditions to continue for the balance of 2013.  Full year 2013 revenue is expected to be up mid-single digits on a percentage basis from 2012," noted Mr. Hermance. 

"We expect earnings for 2013 to be at the low end of our previous guidance range of $2.08 to $2.12 per diluted share, reflecting the weak economic environment.  We continue to believe that AMETEK's strong portfolio of businesses, operational excellence initiatives and successful focus on increasing shareholder value through strategic acquisitions will enable us to perform well in 2013 and beyond," added Mr. Hermance.

"Third quarter sales are expected to be up mid-single digits on a percentage basis over last year's third quarter.  We estimate our earnings to be approximately $0.51 to $0.52 per diluted share, an increase of 9% to 11% over last year's third quarter of $0.47 per diluted share," concluded Mr. Hermance.
