Oct 21, 2014, 16:01 ET from FMC Technologies, Inc.

HOUSTON, Oct. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- FMC Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: FTI) today reported third quarter 2014 revenue of $2.0 billion, up 15 percent from the prior-year quarter.  Diluted earnings per share were $0.72, which includes a $17 million, or $0.07 per diluted share charge, net of tax, related to an intercompany foreign currency transaction.  This is compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.49 in the prior-year quarter. 

Total inbound orders were $1.7 billion and included $1.1 billion in Subsea Technologies orders.  Subsea Technologies backlog was $5.9 billion.

"Quarterly subsea margins are at the highest level we have delivered in over four years," said John Gremp, Chairman, President and CEO of FMC Technologies. "Our focus on execution, the strength of our backlog, and the growth of our subsea service revenue has positioned us to continue delivering mid-teen level margins."

"In Surface Technologies, we delivered record earnings on the growth of our North American fluid control business, as well as continued strong performance in our international surface wellhead business."

Review of Operations – Third Quarter 2014

Subsea Technologies

Subsea Technologies third quarter revenue was $1.3 billion, up 16 percent from the prior-year quarter.  

Operating profit increased 69 percent from the prior-year quarter to $204 million, primarily as a result of better execution on higher volumes in all regions, and growth in the subsea service revenue.  

Inbound orders for the third quarter were $1.1 billion and backlog was $5.9 billion.

Surface Technologies

Surface Technologies third quarter revenue was $556 million, up 22 percent from the prior-year quarter.

Operating profit increased 47 percent from the prior-year quarter to $110 million driven by a strong level of repair and replacement activity and improving capital orders in our North American fluid control business, and strong market activity in our international surface wellhead business.

Inbound orders for the third quarter were $544 million and backlog was $751 million.

Energy Infrastructure

Energy Infrastructure third quarter revenue was $125 million, down 18 percent from the prior-year quarter, while operating profit decreased 72 percent from the prior-year quarter to $5 million. Improved activity in our measurement solutions business was offset by a correction of previously reported 2014 quarterly operating results made in our automation and control business. Due to the sale of the Material Handling Products business in April 2014, quarter over quarter comparisons include their results from the third quarter 2013, but are excluded in the third quarter 2014.  

Inbound orders for the third quarter were $134 million and backlog was $242 million.

Corporate Items

Corporate expense in the third quarter was $16.1 million, an increase of $5.7 million from the prior-year quarter. Other revenue and other expense, net, increased $8.0 million from the prior-year quarter to an expense of $35.1 million, due primarily to a charge related to an intercompany foreign currency transaction more than offsetting the prior year Multi Phase Meters earn out charge.

The Company ended the quarter with net debt of $836 million. Net interest expense was $8.0 million in the quarter.

The Company repurchased 1,019,000 shares of common stock in the quarter, at an average cost of $56.67 per share.

Depreciation and amortization for the third quarter was $60.9 million, up $2.5 million from the sequential quarter. Capital expenditures for the third quarter were $103.7 million.

The Company recorded an effective tax rate of 34.7 percent for the third quarter.

Summary and Outlook

FMC Technologies reported third quarter diluted earnings per share of $0.72, which includes a loss related to an intercompany foreign currency transaction of $0.07 per diluted share.

Total inbound orders of $1.7 billion in the third quarter included $1.1 billion in Subsea Technologies orders. The Company's backlog stands at $6.8 billion, including Subsea Technologies backlog of $5.9 billion.

The Company's guidance range for 2014 diluted earnings per share has been increased to $2.75 to $2.85, which excludes the gain associated with the sale of the Material Handling Products business recorded in the second quarter and includes the $17 million, or $0.07 per diluted share charge, net of tax, related to an intercompany foreign currency transaction in the third quarter.
