FMC Technologies Reports Second Quarter 2015 Diluted Earnings per Share of $0.46

- Quarterly Subsea Technologies inbound orders of $1.0 billion

- Full-year Subsea Technologies inbound expectations of at least $3.0 billion

Jul 21, 2015, 16:01 ET from FMC Technologies, Inc.

HOUSTON, July 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- FMC Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: FTI) today reported second quarter 2015 revenue of $1.7 billion, down 15 percent from the prior-year quarter primarily due to the continued decline in the North American land market and its severe impact on our Surface Technologies segment revenue. Diluted earnings per share were $0.46 which included pre-tax business restructuring charges of $9.5 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, and a U.S. tax charge of $8.0 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, related to a tax settlement. 

Total inbound orders were $1.4 billion, including $1.0 billion in Subsea Technologies orders.  Backlog for the Company was $5.3 billion, including Subsea Technologies backlog of $4.7 billion.

"Subsea orders were stronger in the second quarter, as we received just over $1.0 billion of awards," said John Gremp, Chairman and CEO of FMC Technologies.  "We have increased confidence of exceeding $3 billion of subsea awards this year.  Because our execution remains solid, we maintain our expectation of delivering Subsea Technologies margins of approximately 15 percent for the full year.  Our Surface Technologies segment was severely impacted by the decline in North American activity.  We continue to take actions to change our business model and improve our operating effectiveness to address current market conditions and to be well positioned as the market improves." 

Review of Operations – Second Quarter 2015

Subsea Technologies Subsea Technologies second quarter revenue was $1.2 billion, down 7 percent from the prior-year quarter due to the strength of the U.S. dollar.  Excluding the impact of foreign currency translation, total revenue increased by $62.2 million year-over-year.

Subsea Technologies operating profit decreased 5 percent from the prior-year quarter to $183.5 million, primarily due to the decrease in revenue and $5.4 million of business restructuring costs.  Excluding the impact of foreign currency translation, total operating profit increased by $15.3 million year-over-year.  

Subsea Technologies inbound orders for the second quarter were $1.0 billion and backlog was $4.7 billion.

Surface Technologies Surface Technologies second quarter revenue was $363.3 million, down 29 percent from the prior-year quarter as activity continued to decrease in the North American market.

Surface Technologies operating profit decreased 65 percent from the prior-year quarter to $27.5 million driven by the North American activity declines, less favorable pricing, and $2.8 million of business restructuring costs.

Surface Technologies inbound orders for the second quarter were $306.2 million, down 39 percent from the prior year quarter, as North American inbound has slowed by more than half, and international orders declined. Backlog currently stands at $466.6 million.

Energy Infrastructure Energy Infrastructure second quarter revenue was $101.4 million, down 32 percent from the prior-year quarter primarily due to decreased activity in our measurement solutions and loading systems businesses.

Energy Infrastructure operating profit decreased 71 percent from the prior-year quarter to $5.3 million, as a result of reduced revenue and $1.3 million of business restructuring costs.       

Energy Infrastructure inbound orders for the second quarter were $112.7 million and backlog was $187.1 million.

Corporate Items Corporate expense in the second quarter was $14.0 million, a decrease of $2.8 million from the prior-year quarter.  Other revenue and other expense, net, decreased $97.5 million from the prior-year quarter to an expense of $29.5 million, due largely to the pre-tax gain of $85.6 million of the Material Handling Products disposition recorded in 2014, and an increase of $13.8 million related to unfavorable foreign currency losses due primarily to the devaluation of the Angolan Kwanza. 

The Company ended the quarter with net debt of $699.4 million.  Net interest expense was $9.0 million in the quarter.

The Company repurchased approximately 1.5 million shares of common stock at an average cost of $41.62 per share in the quarter.

 Depreciation and amortization for the second quarter was $53.4 million, down $4.4 million from the sequential quarter.  Capital expenditures for the second quarter were $74.5 million.

The Company recorded an effective tax rate of 34.1 percent for the second quarter that included a U.S. tax charge of $8.0 million related to a tax settlement for prior periods.

Summary and Outlook FMC Technologies reported second quarter diluted earnings per share of $0.46, inclusive of pre-tax business restructuring charges of $0.03 per diluted share and a U.S. tax charge related to a settlement of $0.03 per diluted share. 

Total pre-tax restructuring costs in the first half of the year were $19.7 million, or $0.06 per diluted share.

The Company recorded Subsea Technologies revenue of $1.2 billion with margins of 14.8% in the second quarter.

Total inbound orders of $1.4 billion in the second quarter included $1.0 billion in Subsea Technologies orders.  The Company's backlog stands at $5.3 billion, including Subsea Technologies backlog of $4.7 billion.

The Company expects at least $3 billion of Subsea Technologies awards in 2015.
