Regal Beloit Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Jul 30, 2013, 18:15 ET from Regal Beloit Corporation

BELOIT, Wis., July 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Regal Beloit Corporation (NYSE: RBC) today reported financial results for the second quarter 2013. Net sales for the second quarter 2013 were $822.0 million compared to $863.9 million for the second quarter of 2012.  Net income for the second quarter 2013 was $51.1 million compared to $62.7 million for the second quarter of 2012.  Diluted earnings per share for the second quarter 2013 were $1.13, reflecting the higher share count, compared to $1.49 for the second quarter of 2012.

"Our revenues for the second quarter met our expectations," said Regal Chairman and CEO Mark Gliebe"Demand in our North American commercial and industrial businesses remained sluggish although order rates stabilized during the quarter.   North American residential HVAC came in as anticipated, and we saw strength in other residential product sales.   A key challenge for the quarter was higher inventory costs related to the Venezuelan currency devaluation.  Additionally, we incurred incremental due diligence costs as we pursued acquisitions that fit both our strategic and financial goals.  We intend to remain a consistent acquiror and yet we remain prudent in our evaluation of the opportunities.  We have completed our EPC synergy program and we are shifting those resources over to our simplification initiative.   We expect both efforts to improve our margins and help us to continue to deliver strong free cash flow," continued Mark Gliebe.

The effective tax rate for the second quarter 2013 was 25.0% compared to 30.5% for the second quarter 2012. The second quarter 2013 tax expense included a prior year benefit of $0.9 million attributable to qualification in China for a high technology tax incentive.  Excluding this prior year benefit, the effective tax rate would have been 26.3%.         

Interest expense was down $0.5 million compared to the second quarter 2012 due to a decline in average outstanding debt.  During the second quarter 2013, the $55.0 million term loan was repaid.

For the second quarter 2013, net cash provided by operating activities was $91.3 million. For the second quarter 2013, free cash flow* represented 126.6% of net income.  

"Our third quarter expectations include our typical quarter to quarter seasonality in residential HVAC, slight growth in North American commercial and industrial markets and modest improvements in China," continued Mark Gliebe.  "We expect diluted earnings per share for the third quarter of 2013 to be $1.08 to $1.16.  Adding back $0.02 of restructuring charges, adjusted diluted earnings per share is expected to be $1.10 to $1.18."

NON-GAAP MEASURES

Unaudited (Dollars in Millions)

We prepare financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP).  We also disclose adjusted diluted earnings per share (EPS), adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross profit as a percentage of net sales, adjusted income from operations, free cash flow and free cash flow as a percentage of net income attributable to Regal Beloit Corporation (collectively, "non-GAAP financial measures"). We use these measures in our internal performance reporting and for reports to the Board of Directors.  We also periodically disclose certain of these measures in our quarterly earnings releases, on investor conference calls, and in investor presentations and similar events. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful measures for providing investors with additional insight into our operating performance. This additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our results of operations prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.  Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less additions to property, plant and equipment.
