Fourth-Quarter Diluted Earnings Per Share of $1.65

Full-Year Operating Cash Flow Increased 18% to $803 million

Jan 27, 2014, 07:00 ET from Roper Industries, Inc.

SARASOTA, Fla., Jan. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Roper Industries, Inc. (NYSE: ROP), a diversified growth company, reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2013.

Roper reports full year results, including revenue, operating margin, net income and diluted earnings per share, on a GAAP and adjusted basis.  Fourth quarter results are presented on a GAAP basis with no adjustments.  Adjusted measures are reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measures at the end of this release. 

Fourth Quarter 2013

Net earnings for the fourth quarter were $166 million or $1.65 per diluted share.  Fourth quarter revenue was $889 million, 10% higher than in 2012 and 9% higher than 2012 fourth quarter adjusted revenue of $816 million. Orders increased 16% to $900 million, including 10% organic growth.  Operating margin expanded to 29.0%.  Operating cash flow in the quarter was $236 million, representing 27% of revenue.

"We are very pleased with our fourth-quarter performance, with record orders, revenue, margin and cash flow," said Brian Jellison, Roper's Chairman, President and CEO.  "Gross margin in the quarter was 60.0% and EBITDA reached $307 million, or 34.5% of revenue. Our asset-light businesses in favorable niche markets continue to deliver exceptional results.  Free cash flow in the quarter was $227 million, which represented 137% of net earnings."

Full Year 2013

2013 GAAP diluted earnings per share were $5.37 and adjusted diluted earnings per share were $5.65.  GAAP revenue was $3.24 billion, an increase of 8% over the prior year, while adjusted revenue was $3.27 billion, an increase of 9%.  GAAP operating margin increased 70 basis points to 26.0% and adjusted operating margin was 27.0%, a 130 basis point increase over the prior year. 

"2013 was another outstanding year for Roper as we once again achieved record results for sales, orders, backlog, net earnings and cash flow," said Mr. Jellison.  "We delivered $803 million of operating cash flow for the year and $760 million of free cash flow.  In May, we acquired Managed Health Care Associates (MHA), which has already proven to be an exciting new growth platform.  We ended the year with a strong balance sheet, including over $1.6 billion in cash and available liquidity."

2014 Outlook and Guidance

The company's guidance for 2014 is provided on a GAAP basis and excludes future acquisitions.

Roper expects 2014 full year diluted earnings per share (DEPS) between $6.05 and $6.25 with expected first quarter DEPS between $1.30 and $1.35.  "We enter 2014 with record year-end backlog, exciting growth opportunities and an expectation for record performance," said Mr. Jellison.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

The company supplements its consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis with certain non-GAAP financial information to provide investors with greater insight, increase transparency and allow for a more comprehensive understanding of the information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making.  Reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures are included in the accompanying financial schedules or tables.  The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations from these results should be carefully evaluated.
