Oct 28, 2015, 06:30 ET from SPX FLOW, Inc.

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SPX FLOW, Inc. (NYSE: FLOW) today reported results for the quarter ended September 26, 2015. Due to the spin-off from SPX Corporation that was completed on September 26, 2015, please note the Q3 2015 income statement includes amounts recorded on a "carve out"(1) basis. As such, certain items, including corporate expense, related benefit costs and interest expense, do not represent the on-going run-rate of the company on a stand-alone basis.

Third Quarter 2015 Overview:

  • Revenues declined 13.5% to $589.5 million from $681.5 million in the year-ago quarter. The impact of the stronger U.S. Dollar on foreign currencies decreased revenues by 7.9%, or $54.0 million. Organic revenues* decreased 5.6%, due primarily to lower power and energy revenue, largely reflecting the impact of lower oil prices on customers' capital spending decisions.

  • Segment income and margins declined to $81.6 million and 13.8%, compared to $105.0 million and 15.4% in the year-ago quarter, due primarily to the organic revenue decline.

  • Special charges were $34.6 million in Q3 2015, compared to $2.8 million in Q3 2014. 

    • In Q3 2015, $8.5 million of the special charges related to restructuring actions planned at two of its European Power and Energy facilities.

    • In Q3 2015, the company also recorded $23.7 million of charges due to restructuring actions related to the planned closures of two European manufacturing facilities. These planned closures are part of the initial phase of a broader, multi-year plan to expand the company's manufacturing presence in Bydgoszcz, Poland and reduce its global manufacturing overhead.  As part of this plan, during 2016 the company intends to shift production to Bydgoszcz, Poland from its manufacturing facilities in Unna, Germany and Kolding, Denmark and close the Unna and Kolding manufacturing plants.  Discussions with the works councils at the Unna and Kolding locations are underway. Details of this plan will be discussed on the company's Q3 2015 earnings call scheduled for 8:30 am Eastern time this morning and can also be found on spxflow.com in a news release issued on October 27, 2015.

  • Diluted net loss per share was $0.10 in Q3 2015 as compared to diluted net income of $1.34 per share in Q3 2014.  The decline in net income per share was due primarily to $0.55 of additional special charges, a $0.40 reduction in segment income, nearly all concentrated in the Power and Energy segment, and a non-cash impairment charge of $0.26 per share related to Power and Energy trademarks.

  • Net cash from operating activities was $15.6 million, compared to $82.6 million in Q3 2014. The decline in net cash was due primarily to the decline in segment profitability and timing of cash receipts on large projects.

  • Free cash flow used in operations* was $4.9 million, compared to free cash flow from operations of $70.1 million in Q3 2014. The decline in free cash flow was related to the decline in operating cash described above and increased capital investments in conjunction with the company's global footprint optimization initiatives.

Chris Kearney, Chairman, President and CEO said, "During the third quarter we completed the spin-off from SPX Corporation and began operating independently as a standalone, pure FLOW company, a significant milestone. I am very appreciative of the hard work and collective effort by our employees across the world. Together we have built a strong FLOW business recognized for world class engineering capabilities, quality manufacturing and commitment to customers. We are well-positioned as a leading supplier in food and beverage, power and energy and industrial markets, which we believe are solid long-term growth markets."

Kearney continued, "In the short-term, however, demand across our key end markets declined in Q3 and continues to be impacted by lower oil prices, the stronger U.S. dollar and a general slowdown in the global industrial economy. During the third quarter, orders declined 8% sequentially and were lower than we anticipated, particularly in our oil and gas businesses. Broadly speaking, short-cycle orders slowed across all three segments, and we continued to see customers defer order placement on large capital projects."

Kearney concluded, "Given the current demand environment and low expectations for growth in 2016, we are aggressively moving forward on plans to optimize our global footprint, streamlining our business processes and reducing SG&A.  We are also focused on increasing our relevance to customers through product development and innovation efforts and remain committed to driving a higher level of overall operating performance.  We believe these initiatives will drive significant margin improvement over the next few years, even in a low growth environment.  To underscore our confidence in these plans and commitment to continuous improvement, we are increasing our 3-year segment income margin target to a range of 15% to 17%, up 100 points from our previous target range of 14% to 16%."

Jeremy Smeltser, Vice President and CFO added, "Given the slowdown in order rates we experienced during the third quarter and a sluggish start to orders in the fourth quarter, we have reduced our full year financial targets for 2015.  We now expect revenue to decline between 13% and 14% year-over-year, with organic revenue down 5% to 6%.  And we are now targeting EBITDA* in the range of $320 million to $330 million."

Food and Beverage

Revenues for Q3 2015 were $210.1 million, compared to $246.6 million in Q3 2014, a decrease of $36.5 million, or 14.8%.  Currency fluctuations decreased revenues 9.1%, or $22.4 million, and organic revenues* declined 5.7%, or $14.1 million. The decrease in organic revenues was due primarily to global demand for components, particularly in North America.

Segment income was $27.2 million, or 12.9% of revenues, in Q3 2015, compared to $27.8 million, or 11.3% of revenues, in Q3 2014. Segment income margins increased 160 points driven by improved project execution on large system projects and cost reduction initiatives.

Power and Energy

Revenues for Q3 2015 were $184.7 million, compared to $231.0 million in Q3 2014, a decrease of $46.3 million, or 20.0%. Currency fluctuations decreased revenues 6.8%, or $15.6 million, and organic revenues* declined 13.2%, or $30.7 million.  The organic revenue decline was due to the impact of lower oil prices on customers' capital spending decisions.

Segment income was $27.2 million, or 14.7% of revenues, in Q3 2015, compared to $47.4 million, or 20.5% of revenues, in Q3 2014. The decrease in segment income and margin was due primarily to the revenue decline described above. 

Industrial

Revenues for Q3 2015 were $194.7 million, compared to $203.9 million in Q3 2014, a decline of $9.2 million, or 4.5%. Organic revenues* increased 3.2%, while currency fluctuations decreased revenues by 7.7%. The organic revenue growth was driven by increased demand in Asia Pacific and higher revenue from industrial pumps and mixers, partially offset by declines in sales of hydraulic technologies, heat exchangers and dehydration equipment.

Segment income was $27.2 million, or 14.0% of revenues, in Q3 2015, compared to $29.8 million, or 14.6% of revenues, in Q3 2014. The decline in segment income and margin was due primarily to lower hydraulic technologies volume, which has been impacted by the decline in oil and gas markets.

OTHER ITEMS

Impairment Charge: During Q3 2015, the company recorded an impairment charge of $15.0 million related to trademarks of a business within its Power and Energy reportable segment primarily resulting from continued impact of lower oil prices on the purchasing patterns of its customers in oil and gas markets.

Form 10-Q:  The company expects to file its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 26, 2015 with the Securities and Exchange Commission no later than November 10, 2015. This press release should be read in conjunction with that filing, which will be available on the company's website at www.spxflow.com, in the Investor Relations section.
