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 attributable to Dresser-Rand of $53.3 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, for the second quarter 2013, compared with net income attributable to Dresser-Rand of $34.0 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, for the second quarter 2012.    

Vincent R. Volpe Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Dresser-Rand, said, "We are pleased with our second quarter 2013 bookings and financial results.   Income from operations of $87 million was up 20% from last year's second quarter and was close to the top end of our guidance range.  For the full year, we continue to forecast revenues and operating income at record levels.

"New unit bookings of approximately $432 million included the de-booking of an upstream project of approximately $40 million. Without this de-booking, our new unit bookings would have been $472 million, representing an increase of 37% over the corresponding period last year. We were especially pleased to have received a new unit project award from Apex Compressed Air Energy Storage, LLC ("Apex") for a new 317 MW compressed air energy storage ("CAES") facility to be constructed in Texas.

"The aftermarket continues to deliver increasingly strong results. Parts and services bookings of $436 million represent an 11.5% year-over-year increase, which featured the securing of a large energy asset contract extension for which we booked $50 million.    

"Against this positive backdrop, there are three items that need to be addressed.

  • The slowdown in new unit bookings for the upstream sector. As previously indicated, several large projects related to oil production moved from late last year's bookings forecast into the second half of 2013. Over the past several months, these projects have continued to experience delays based on the clients' desire to reduce CAPEX, as well as resource constraints. As a result, we now expect several major projects to move out of the 2013 time frame. To be clear, activity levels remain high and we believe that the upstream slowdown represents a delay rather than demand destruction. On the basis of the above, we are now revising our forecast for new unit bookings from $1.8 to $2.0 billion to $1.5 to $1.7 billion.
  • The U.S. dollar's sustained relative strength versus other key operating currencies. At present exchange rates, we estimate the impact on operating income to be in the range of $10 to $15 million for the full year, with substantially all of the impact occurring in the second half of the year. As a result, we presently believe our full year operating income will be in the range of $430 to $450 million. This is essentially in-line with the current consensus estimate of approximately $453 million as adjusted by this translation effect.
  • Net working capital. In our previous forecast we anticipated our net working capital would remain flat and, over time, move back to approximately 10% of sales. This forecast assumed the sale of a solar park in the second quarter, which ultimately did not occur. The effect on net working capital was approximately $40 million, which approximates the increase in the quarter. We expect the sale to go through in the second half of 2013.

Summary of Results

Bookings of $868.4 million for the second quarter 2013 were 17.8% higher than the $737.2 million for the second quarter 2012. The backlog at June 30, 2013, of $2,945.4 million was 5.3% higher than the $2,797.3 million backlog at June 30, 2012.

Revenues for the second quarter 2013 of $805.3 million were $169.5 million or 26.7% higher than the second quarter 2012 of $635.8 million.  Revenues increased as a result of higher volume and, to a lesser extent, price increases.

Total operating income for the second quarter 2013 was $87.2 million, compared to operating income of $72.6 million for the second quarter 2012.  As a percentage of revenues, operating income for the second quarter 2013 was 10.8%, compared to 11.4% for the corresponding period in 2012.  The decrease in operating income as a percentage of revenues was principally the result of a shift in the overall mix of total revenues from the aftermarket segment to the new units segment and higher research and development expenses.   These adverse impacts were partially offset by improved operating leverage on fixed costs and, to a lesser extent, price increases.

Net income attributable to Dresser-Rand was $53.3 million or $0.69 per diluted share, for the second quarter 2013, compared to net income attributable to Dresser-Rand of $34.0 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, for the second quarter 2012. 

New Units Segment

New unit bookings of $432.0 million for the second quarter 2013 were 25.0% higher than bookings of $345.7 million for the corresponding period in 2012.  One major order was cancelled in the second quarter 2013 reducing second quarter new unit bookings by approximately $40 million.  Second quarter 2013 new unit bookings before the order cancellation totaled $472.0 million, an increase of 37% versus the corresponding period in 2012. The backlog at June 30, 2013, of $2,254.3 million was 2.7% higher than the $2,194.3 million backlog at June 30, 2012.

New unit revenues were $420.2 million for the second quarter 2013 compared to $287.3 million for second quarter 2012, an increase of $132.9 million or 46.3%.  The increase in second quarter 2013 revenues compared to the corresponding period in 2012 reflects the variability in the timing and the size of very large orders in the new units segment.  Additionally, the Company entered into three extended scope construction-type contracts near the end of 2012 that are accounted for on a percentage-of-completion basis and contributed approximately $67.4 million of revenues.

New units operating income was $25.8 million for the second quarter 2013, compared to operating income of $27.3 million for the second quarter 2012.  This segment's operating margin was 6.1% for the second quarter 2013, compared to 9.5% for the second quarter 2012.  The decrease in operating margin was due to a less favorable sales mix and an increase in the fixed cost allocation between new units and aftermarket, partially offset by better operating leverage from higher volumes.

Aftermarket Parts and Services Segment

Aftermarket bookings of $436.4 million for the second quarter 2013 were 11.5% higher than bookings of $391.5 million for the corresponding period in 2012.  The increase in aftermarket bookings reflects good levels of activity in most geographic segments and the continuing success in executing the aftermarket growth strategies.  The backlog at June 30, 2013, of $691.1 million was 14.6% higher than the $603.0 million backlog at June 30, 2012.

Aftermarket parts and services revenues were $385.1 million for the second quarter 2013, compared to $348.5 million for the second quarter 2012, an increase of $36.6 million or 10.5%.   The increase in revenues reflects growth in most geographic segments, especially Latin America, and to a lesser extent, price increases.  The increase in revenues was partially offset by the adverse translation impact of a stronger U.S. dollar.

Aftermarket operating income was $92.8 million for the second quarter 2013, compared to $69.9 million for the second quarter 2012.  This segment's operating margin was 24.1% for the second quarter 2013, compared to 20.1% for the second quarter 2012.  This increase was the result of a more favorable sales mix, a decrease in the fixed cost allocation between new units and aftermarket, price increases and the benefits of operating leverage from higher volumes. 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of June 30, 2013, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $162.3 million and the ability to borrow $235.6 million under the $765.0 million revolving portion of its Senior Secured Credit Facility, as $116.9 million was used for outstanding letters of credit and $412.5 million of borrowings was outstanding. In addition to these letters of credit, $197.8 million of letters of credit and bank guarantees were outstanding at June 30, 2013, which were issued by banks offering uncommitted lines of credit.

In the first six months of 2013, cash used in operating activities was $34.4 million compared with $1.5 million for the corresponding period in 2012.  The decline in cash from operations in the six months ended June 30, 2013, was principally the result of increased investment in working capital. Working capital was higher than anticipated principally due to a delay in the sale of a solar park, which is now expected to close later this year, and better progress on projects accounted for on a percentage-of-completion basis. These items will be covered in more detail on the conference call.

In the first six months of 2013, net cash used in investing activities was $44.3 million compared with $77.3 million for the corresponding period in 2012.  Cash used in investing activities in the first six months of 2013 includes $39.7 million of capital expenditures.  Cash used in investing activities in the first six months of 2012 includes $25.4 million of capital expenditures, $48.8 million related to the acquisition of Synchrony, Inc. (net of cash acquired) and $6.0 million related to an additional capital investment in the non-controlling interest of Echogen Power Systems, LLC. 

Cash provided by financing activities was $128.9 million in the first six months of 2013, compared to cash provided by financing activities of $88.9 million in the first six months of 2012.  As of June 30, 2013, net debt was approximately $992.8 million.

Outlook

The Company expects 2013 new unit bookings of $1.5 to $1.7 billion and maintains aftermarket bookings guidance of $1.6 to $1.8 billion.  The Company presently believes its full year operating income will be in the range of $430 to $450 million based on current foreign exchange rates.

New unit segment margins are expected to be in the range of 8% to 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 $55 to $60 million and its effective tax rate to be approximately 31% to 33%.
