CLEVELAND, Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE: PH), the global leader in motion and control technologies, today reported results for the fiscal 2014 fourth quarter and full year ended June 30, 2014.  Fiscal 2014 sales were a record at $13.2 billion, compared with $13.0 billion in fiscal 2013.  Net income for fiscal 2014 was $1,041 million, or $6.87 per diluted share, compared with net income of $949 million, or $6.26 per diluted share in fiscal 2013.  Adjusted earnings per diluted share for fiscal 2014 were $6.94. A reconciliation of reported to adjusted sales, net income and earnings per diluted share is included with the financial tables accompanying this news release.  Cash flow from operations for fiscal 2014 was $1.4 billion or 10.5 percent of sales compared with $1.2 billion or 9.1 percent of sales in the prior year. Excluding a discretionary contribution to the company's pension plan of $75 million in fiscal 2014, cash flow from operations was 11.1 percent of sales.

"Fiscal 2014 was a transitional year as we worked through the most significant restructuring in our history." said Chairman, CEO and President, Don Washkewicz. "I am proud that our global team was able to stay focused and still deliver record sales and strong earnings and cash flow for the year, which included record fourth quarter operating cash flow. Overall, we are well positioned entering the new fiscal year."

Fiscal 2014 fourth quarter sales increased 3 percent to a record $3.53 billion, compared with $3.43 billion in the same period a year ago.  Fiscal 2014 fourth quarter net income was $301.2 million, or $1.98 earnings per diluted share, compared with $271.1 million, or $1.78 earnings per diluted share in the prior year quarter.  Fiscal 2014 fourth quarter earnings per diluted share were $2.06 adjusted for the impact of $0.08 in earnings per diluted share in restructuring expenses.

Fourth Quarter Segment Results
Diversified Industrial Segment: North American fourth quarter sales increased 4.0 percent to $1.53 billion, and operating income was $268.7 million compared with $249.7 million in the same period a year ago.  International fourth quarter sales increased 3.1 percent to $1.38 billion, and operating income was $137.9 million compared with $162.6 million in the same period a year ago.

Aerospace Systems Segment: Fourth quarter sales were essentially flat at $617.6 million, reflecting the impact of the previously announced joint venture between Parker Aerospace and GE Aviation.  Operating income was $104.9 million compared with $86.1 million in the same period a year ago.

Orders
Parker reported an increase of 4 percent in orders for the quarter ending June 30, 2014, compared with the same quarter a year ago.  This is the fourth consecutive quarter of year-over-year positive order growth. The company reported the following orders by business: 

  • Orders increased 6 percent in the Diversified Industrial North America businesses
  • Orders decreased 4 percent in the Diversified Industrial International businesses
  • Orders increased 17 percent in the Aerospace Systems segment on a rolling 12-month average basis.

Fiscal 2015 Outlook
For the fiscal year ending June 30, 2015, the company has issued guidance for earnings per diluted share in the range of $7.00 to $7.80, or $7.25 to $8.05 on an adjusted basis.   Fiscal year 2015 guidance is adjusted for expected restructuring expenses of approximately $0.25 per diluted share.  

Washkewicz added, "In fiscal year 2015, we anticipate generally stable macroeconomic conditions. As always, we will stay the course by executing the Win Strategy, which has helped us deliver consistent results and are poised to deliver another year of record earnings performance for Parker."

Note on Orders
Orders provide near-term perspective on the company's outlook, particularly when viewed in the context of prior and future quarterly order rates. However, orders are not in themselves an indication of future performance. All comparisons are at constant currency exchange rates, with the prior year restated to the current-year rates. All exclude acquisitions until they can be reflected in both the numerator and denominator. Aerospace comparisons are rolling 12-month average computations. The total Parker orders number is derived from a weighted average of the year-over-year quarterly percent change in orders for Diversified Industrial North America and Diversified Industrial International, and the year-over-year 12-month rolling average of orders for the Aerospace Systems segment.

Note on Non-GAAP Numbers
This press release contains references to (a) net income without the effect of a gain associated with a joint venture agreement, asset write downs and restructuring expense, (b) earnings per diluted share without the effect of a gain associated with a joint venture, asset write downs and restructuring expense, (c) cash flow excluding discretionary contributions to the company's pension plan, and (d) the effect of restructuring expenses on forecasted earnings per diluted share. The effects of divestitures, a gain associated with a joint venture, asset write downs, restructuring expenses, and pension plan contributions are removed to allow investors and the company to meaningfully evaluate changes in sales, net income, earnings per diluted share, and cash flow on a comparable basis from period to period.

Forward-Looking Statements
Forward-looking statements contained in this and other written and oral reports are made based on known events and circumstances at the time of release, and as such, are subject in the future to unforeseen uncertainties and risks. All statements regarding future performance, earnings projections, events or developments are forward-looking statements. It is possible that the future performance and earnings projections of the company, including its individual segments, may differ materially from current expectations, depending on economic conditions within its mobile, industrial and aerospace markets, and the company's ability to maintain and achieve anticipated benefits associated with announced realignment activities, strategic initiatives to improve operating margins, actions taken to combat the effects of the current economic environment, and growth, innovation and global diversification initiatives. A change in the economic conditions in individual markets may have a particularly volatile effect on segment performance. Among other factors which may affect future performance are: changes in business relationships with and purchases by or from major customers, suppliers or distributors, including delays or cancellations in shipments, disputes regarding contract terms or significant changes in financial condition, changes in contract cost and revenue estimates for new development programs and changes in product mix; ability to identify acceptable strategic acquisition targets; uncertainties surrounding timing, successful completion or integration of acquisitions and similar transactions; the ability to successfully divest businesses planned for divestiture and realize the anticipated benefits of such divestitures; the determination to undertake business realignment activities and the expected costs thereof and, if undertaken, the ability to complete such activities and realize the anticipated cost savings from such activities; the ability to realize anticipated benefits of the consolidation of the Climate and Industrial Controls Group; threats associated with and efforts to combat terrorism; uncertainties surrounding the ultimate resolution of outstanding legal proceedings, including the outcome of any appeals; competitive market conditions and resulting effects on sales and pricing; increases in raw material costs that cannot be recovered in product pricing; the company's ability to manage costs related to insurance and employee retirement and health care benefits; and global economic factors, including manufacturing activity, air travel trends, currency exchange rates, difficulties entering new markets and general economic conditions such as inflation, deflation, interest rates and credit availability. The company makes these statements as of the date of this disclosure, and undertakes no obligation to update them unless otherwise required by law.
