SPX Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results Revenues Up 7% to $1.25 Billion

Earnings Per Share from Continuing Operations Up 8% to $1.05

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SPX Corporation (NYSE: SPW) today reported results for the third quarter ended September 29, 2012:

Third Quarter Highlights:

  • Revenues increased 7.2% to $1.25 billion from $1.17 billion in the year-ago quarter.  Organic revenues* decreased 0.5%, while completed acquisitions increased revenues by 11.1% and currency fluctuations decreased revenues by 3.4%.
  • Segment income and margins were $134.2 million and 10.7%, compared with $138.0 million and 11.8% in the year-ago quarter. Third quarter of 2012 segment margins were impacted by 77 basis points of dilution from the 2011 acquisition of ClydeUnion, including $0.8 million of purchase accounting charges related to the amortization of acquired backlog value.
  • Diluted net income per share from continuing operations was $1.05, compared with $0.97 in the year-ago quarter. 
  • Net cash from continuing operations was $52.2 million, compared with $85.8 million in the year-ago quarter.  The decrease was attributable primarily to the timing of milestone cash receipts for certain large projects within our Thermal Equipment and Services segment, investments in working capital at ClydeUnion and higher pension contributions in the current quarter. 
  • Free cash flow from continuing operations* during the quarter was $30.8 million, compared with $57.7 million in the year-ago quarter.  The decrease was due primarily to the items noted above, partially offset by lower capital expenditures.

"Our third quarter results were highlighted by increased year-over-year sales of Flow components and power transformers in North America and operating margins in our legacy Flow operations, which improved both sequentially and year over year," said Christopher J. Kearney, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer of SPX.

"However, total revenue for the third quarter came in lighter than we had anticipated, partly due to continued challenges in the European economic environment, customer and execution delays on projects at ClydeUnion, and some areas of softness in Asia Pacific.  For the full year, we now expect revenue growth in the range of 11 to 12 percent, versus our previous range of 11 to 15 percent. 

"On the strategic front, we expect the final regulatory requirements for the sale of Service Solutions to be satisfied within the next few weeks and anticipate the deal will close in early December.  After we receive the proceeds from this sale, we estimate our available liquidity will be about $2 billion and we plan to complete our previously communicated capital allocation plans, including $350 million of debt repayments and $275 million of additional share repurchases.  We continue to make progress on the integration of ClydeUnion.  Current quarter operating margins improved modestly quarter-to-quarter and we are targeting a further increase in ClydeUnion's fourth quarter profitability.

"We have made good progress on our strategic actions during the third quarter and believe our company is better positioned for success in 2013 and beyond," Kearney said.

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS – CONTINUING OPERATIONS

Flow Technology

Revenues for the third quarter of 2012 were $648.6 million compared to $527.9 million in the third quarter of 2011, an increase of $120.7 million, or 22.9%.  Organic revenues increased 0.5%, reflecting growth in component sales to the oil and gas market as well as contract execution of food and beverage systems in Asia Pacific.  This growth was mostly offset by the continued weakness in industrial markets, most notably Europe, as well as the completion of certain large scale nuclear projects that favorably impacted the prior year quarter.  Acquisitions increased reported revenues by 26.4%, while the impact of currency fluctuations decreased reported revenues by 4.0%, from the year-ago quarter.

Segment income was $78.1 million, or 12.0% of revenues, in the third quarter of 2012 compared to $70.1 million, or 13.3% of revenues, in the third quarter of 2011.  The increase in segment income was due primarily to the impact of the revenue growth noted above. The decline in segment margin was due primarily to 200 basis points of dilution from ClydeUnion, including purchase accounting charges related to the amortization of acquired backlog value, partially offset by increased year-over-year pricing and improved operating costs at facilities in the U.S. and Europe. 

Thermal Equipment and Services

Revenues for the third quarter of 2012 were $381.0 million compared to $433.9 million in the third quarter of 2011, a decrease of $52.9 million, or 12.2%.  Organic revenues decreased 5.7% in the quarter, driven primarily by declines in high margin cooling system projects partially offset by increases in the execution of projects in South Africa.  The impact of currency fluctuations decreased reported revenues by 4.1% from the year-ago quarter.

Segment income was $30.0 million, or 7.9% of revenues, in the third quarter of 2012 compared to $40.8 million, or 9.4% of revenues, in the third quarter of 2011.  The decline in segment income and margins was due primarily to the impact of the unfavorable volume and project mix.

Industrial Products and Services

Revenues for the third quarter of 2012 were $219.8 million compared to $204.2 million for the third quarter of 2011, an increase of $15.6 million, or 7.6%.  Organic revenues increased 8.2% in the quarter, attributable primarily to 48.3% growth in our power transformer business, partially offset by declines in sales of fare-collection systems and communication technologies.  The impact of currency fluctuations decreased reported revenues by 0.6% from the year-ago quarter.

Segment income was $26.1 million, or 11.9% of revenues, in the third quarter of 2012 compared to $27.1 million, or 13.3% of revenues, in the third quarter of 2011.  The decrease in segment income and margins was due primarily to the decline in high margin fare-collection and communication technologies revenues, partially offset by the impact of increased power transformer sales noted above.

OTHER ITEMS

Dividend:   On August 23, 2012, the company announced that its Board of Directors had declared a quarterly dividend of $0.25 per common share to shareholders of record on September 14, 2012, which was paid on October 3, 2012.

Form 10-Q:  The company expects to file its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 29, 2012 with the Securities and Exchange Commission by October 31, 2012.  This press release should be read in conjunction with that filing, which will be available on the company's website at www.spx.com, in the Investor Relations section.

Discontinued Operations:   During the first quarter of 2012, the company entered into an agreement to sell its Service Solutions business unit. The financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows of Service Solutions have been reported as discontinued operations in the attached condensed consolidated financial statements. 

Segment Reporting:   With the pending sale of Service Solutions, the company is no longer reporting the Test & Measurement segment.  We are continuing to report Flow Technology and Thermal Equipment and Services, our two reportable segments.  The other two businesses that had been reported within Test & Measurement, along with our remaining operating segments, are included in an "All Other" category, which we refer to as Industrial Products and Services.
