Cameron Announces Results For Second Quarter Of 2015

- $0.83 fully diluted earnings per share excluding discontinued operations and other costs

- Results aided by strong execution and cost reduction

- 15% sequential-quarter increase in orders

Jul 23, 2015, 07:30 ET from Cameron

HOUSTON, July 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cameron (NYSE: CAM) today reported fully diluted earnings per share, excluding discontinued operations and other costs, of $0.83 for the second quarter of 2015, compared to $0.95 for the same period of 2014.  

Other costs in the second quarter of 2015 amounted to $37 million, or $0.12 per share, as detailed in an accompanying table.  

On a GAAP basis, the Company's fully diluted earnings per share for the second quarter and first six months of 2015 were $0.73 and $0.98, respectively, as compared to $1.08 and $1.57 for the same periods of 2014.

Commenting on the Company's performance in the second quarter of 2015, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jack B. Moore, said, "The Company reported solid earnings and orders despite challenging market conditions.  Our financial results reflected outstanding execution across the enterprise when compared to the year ago quarter, driven by our Subsea and Drilling segments and a 16% decline in our SG&A expense."

Orders Consolidated orders increased 15% on a sequential-quarter basis from the first to the second quarter of 2015, reflecting the breadth and competitive differentiation of Cameron's portfolio of businesses.  Specifically, the sequential-quarter gains occurred in three of the Company's four reporting segments and amounted to 32% in Subsea, 23% in Drilling and 5% in Surface.  Subsea processing technology continued to gain traction during the second quarter, with the segment recording a significant award for subsea boosting in the Gulf of Mexico.  The segment also recorded a $330 million award for subsea production equipment for a project offshore North Africa and, separately, a front-end engineering and design contract for a proposed floating LNG development offshore northwest Australia.

Cash Flow from Operations and Capital Program The Company ended the quarter with cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments totaling $1.7 billion and a net debt to total capital ratio of 17%, which gives the Company significant flexibility to deal with the uncertainty presented by this downturn, execute on its strategic initiatives and position itself for future growth.  

Cameron's capital expenditures totaled $41 million in the second quarter of 2015, as compared to $73 million in the second quarter of 2014.  As of the end of the second quarter of 2015, approximately $285 million remained available under the Company's existing share purchase authorization.

2015 Outlook Moore said, "Although the industry downturn continues to pose many challenges, we believe the pace of the decline in customer spending has begun to moderate.  In this environment, we remain focused on the things we can control: the ongoing systemic reduction in our cost structure, execution, customer relationships and technology advancement.  We believe this focus will ensure that the company generates long-term value for our stakeholders."

In addition to the historical data contained herein, this document includes forward-looking statements regarding generation of long-term value, made in reliance upon the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. 

The Company's actual results may differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements.  Such statements are based on current expectations of the Company's performance and are subject to a variety of factors, some of which are not under the control of the Company, which can affect the Company's results of operations, liquidity or financial condition.  Such factors may include overall demand for, and pricing of, the Company's products, particularly as affected by North American activity; the size and timing of orders; the Company's ability to successfully execute the large subsea and drilling systems projects it has been awarded; the possibility of cancellations of orders; the Company's ability to convert backlog into revenues on a timely and profitable basis; the impact of acquisitions the Company has made or may make; changes in the price of (and demand for) oil and gas in both domestic and international markets; raw material costs and availability; political and social issues affecting the countries in which the Company does business; fluctuations in currency markets worldwide; and variations in global economic activity.  In particular, current and projected oil and gas prices historically have generally directly affected customers' spending levels and their related purchases of the Company's products and services.  Additionally, changes in oil and gas price expectations may impact the Company's financial results due to changes it may make in its cost structure, staffing or spending levels.
