Dresser-Rand Group Inc. ("Dresser-Rand" or the "Company") (NYSE: DRC), a global supplier of rotating equipment and aftermarket parts and services, reported net income of $32.9  million, or $0.43 per diluted share, for the first quarter 2013, compared with net income of $23.6 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, for the first quarter 2012. 

Vincent R. Volpe Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Dresser-Rand, said, "Our first quarter 2013 financial results were generally in-line with our expectations, with good earnings and aftermarket bookings set against light new units bookings. Additionally, while net working capital increased at quarter end to approximately 13.5% of trailing twelve months sales, looking at scheduled commitments and anticipated receipts from clients, we continue to expect that the average for the year will be at or below 10% of 2013 sales as previously guided. 

"We have a strong backlog of new unit orders scheduled to ship this year and our aftermarket bookings, especially the increase in parts orders, give us a solid start to the year.  As new unit bookings start to ramp up in the second quarter and then over the remainder of the year, we believe we are well positioned for the future.

"Income from operations of $65.5 million was up 27% from year ago levels and slightly above the midpoint of our guidance.  Aftermarket bookings of $399 million were strong, while our new unit bookings of $269 million were, as previously disclosed, well below the run-rate implied in our full year bookings guidance, reflecting client delays in placing several major orders.

"As previously guided, we expect to see improved operating margins commensurate with the increase in volume over the balance of the year and, as a result, we are reiterating our full year operating income guidance of $450 to $530 million with a bias toward the lower half of the range. Similarly, we are reiterating bookings guidance for new units and aftermarket parts and services in the range of $1.8 to $2.0 billion and $1.6 to $1.8 billion, respectively.

Bookings of $667.8 million for the first quarter 2013 were 19% lower than the $827.0 million for the first quarter 2012. The decrease in bookings was due to lower new unit bookings reflecting the lumpy nature of the new units segment, in which bookings can be highly variable due to the subjectivity clients exercise in placing large orders.  For example, in the first quarter 2012, the Company booked one order that amounted to more than $150 million, whereas in the first quarter 2013, no single order was more than $50 million in size. The $2,863.7 million backlog at the end of March 2013 was 4.3% higher than the $2,746.8 million backlog at the end of March 2012.

Revenues for the first quarter 2013 of $766.4 million increased $104.6 million or 15.8% compared to $661.8 million for the first quarter 2012.  The increase in revenues was principally due to higher volume and, to a much lesser extent, higher prices.

Total operating income for the first quarter 2013 was $65.5 million, compared to operating income of $51.7 million for the first quarter 2012.  As a percentage of revenues, operating income for the first quarter 2013 of 8.5% compares with 7.8% for the corresponding period in 2012.  First quarter 2013 operating income increased compared with the corresponding period in 2012 principally due to higher volume and, to a much lesser extent, price increases.  Operating margins improved principally from operating leverage on higher volumes. 

New Units Segment

New unit bookings of $268.8 million for the first quarter 2013 were 39.2% lower than the bookings of $442.2 million for the corresponding period in 2012. The backlog at March 31, 2013, of $2,207.7 million was 1.5% higher than the $2,174.3 million backlog at March 31, 2012.

New unit revenues were $443.2 million for the first quarter 2013 compared to $367.7 million for the first quarter 2012, an increase of $75.5 million or 20.5%.   The increase in revenues was principally due to higher volume.

New unit operating income of $28.6 million for the first quarter 2013 compares with operating income of $20.2 million for the first quarter 2012.  This segment's operating margin was 6.5% for the first quarter 2013, compared to 5.5% for the first quarter 2012.  The increase in operating margin was principally from operating leverage on higher volumes, partially offset by a less favorable sales mix.

Aftermarket Parts and Services Segment

Aftermarket bookings of $399.0 million for the first quarter 2013 were 3.7% higher than bookings of $384.8 million for the corresponding period in 2012.  The backlog at March 31, 2013, of $656.0 million was 14.6% higher than the $572.5 million backlog at March 31, 2012.

Aftermarket revenues were $323.2 million for the first quarter 2013, compared to $294.1 million for the first quarter 2012, an increase of $29.1 million or 9.9%.   The increase in revenues was principally due to volume growth in most geographic regions, especially the Middle East and Latin America and, to a much lesser extent, price increases.

Aftermarket operating income was $66.4 million for the first quarter 2013, compared to $53.3 million for the first quarter 2012.  This segment's operating margin was 20.5% for the first quarter 2013, compared to 18.1% for the first quarter 2012.  This increase was principally from the benefits of favorable mix and higher prices. 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of March 31, 2013, cash and cash equivalents totaled $157.0 million and borrowing availability under the $764.1 million revolving credit portion of the Company's senior secured credit facility was $174.6 million, as $172.9 million was used for outstanding letters of credit and $416.6 million of borrowings was outstanding.

In the first quarter 2013, cash used by operating activities was $44.7 million, compared with cash provided by operating activities of $9.9 million for the corresponding period in 2012.  In the first quarter 2013, net cash used in investing activities was $31.2 million compared with $55.8 million for the first quarter 2012.  Cash used in investing activities in the first quarter 2012 includes $48.8 million related to the acquisition of Synchrony, Inc.  Cash provided by financing activities was $110.9 million in the first quarter of 2013, compared to $37.5 million in the first quarter of 2012.  As of March 31, 2013, net debt was approximately $966.1 million.

Outlook

The Company reiterates its guidance for 2013 new unit bookings of $1.8 to $2.0 billion.  Given the delays in several major projects, the Company continues to believe that as much as two-thirds of these bookings may occur in the second half of the year.  The Company also reiterates aftermarket bookings of $1.6 to $1.8 billion and full year 2013 operating income guidance of $450 to $530 million with a continuing bias toward the lower half of the range.  New unit segment margins are expected to be approximately 10% and aftermarket segment margins are expected to be in the range of 23% to 25%.  The Company expects its full year 2013 interest expense to be approximately $60 million and its effective tax rate to be approximately 32% to 34%.
