Aug 04, 2015, 07:30 ET from Parker Hannifin Corporation

CLEVELAND, Aug. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE: PH), the global leader in motion and control technologies, today reported results for the fiscal 2015 fourth quarter and full year ended June 30, 2015.  Fiscal 2015 fourth quarter sales were $3.14 billion, compared with $3.53 billion in the same period a year ago, reflecting the effect of currency rate changes and weak end market demand.  Fiscal 2015 fourth quarter net income was $179.6 million, compared with $301.2 million in the prior year quarter.  Fiscal 2015 fourth quarter earnings per share were $1.27, compared with $1.98 per share in the prior year quarter. Adjusted earnings per share were $1.43 in the fiscal 2015 fourth quarter, compared with $2.06 per share in the prior year quarter.  Fiscal 2015 fourth quarter earnings were negatively impacted by $0.30 per share as a result of a higher effective tax rate due to changes in the geographic mix of pre-tax profits and discrete items booked in the quarter.  A reconciliation of as reported to adjusted segment operating margins and earnings per share is included with the financial tables accompanying this news release. 

"We continue to feel the effects of changes in currency rates and have been taking actions to adjust to weak macro-economic and end market conditions," said Tom Williams, Chief Executive Officer.  "Despite the significant year over year sales decline, the company performed well with adjusted segment operating margins growing to 14.9 percent from 14.4 percent in fiscal 2014.  We have seen a swift and meaningful drop in order rates in the second half of our fiscal year, and particularly in the fourth quarter.  As communicated in April 2015, the company completed a voluntary early retirement program during the fourth quarter.  We continue to see opportunities to reduce costs around the world.  We are also launching our Simplification initiative as part of the refreshed Win Strategy. Our objectives are to reduce complexity, improve speed and reduce costs, all of which will enable us to better serve our customers.  These strategies will help build a more agile Parker that is better positioned to drive long-term, profitable growth and returns for shareholders."

Fiscal 2015 full year sales were $12.7 billion, compared with $13.2 billion in fiscal 2014, primarily impacted by the effect of currency rate changes and weakening end market demand in the second half of the fiscal year.  Net income for fiscal 2015 was $1.01 billion, compared with $1.04 billion in fiscal 2014.  Fiscal 2015 earnings per share were $6.97, compared with $6.87 per share in fiscal 2014.  Adjusted earnings per share for fiscal 2015 were $7.25, compared with $6.94 in the prior year.  Fiscal 2015 full year results included $0.38 per share in transaction currency gains that are not anticipated to repeat in fiscal 2016.  Despite difficult market conditions, cash flow from operations for fiscal 2015 was $1.3 billion or 10.2 percent of sales compared with $1.4 billion or 10.5 percent of sales in the prior year. 

Fourth Quarter Segment Results 

Diversified Industrial Segment: North American fourth quarter sales decreased 7 percent to $1.41 billion, and operating income was $228.9 million, compared with $268.7 million in the same period a year ago.  International fourth quarter sales decreased 17 percent to $1.14 billion, primarily as a result of the effect of currency rate changes, and operating income was $118.1 million, compared with $137.9 million in the same period a year ago.

Aerospace Systems Segment: Fourth quarter sales decreased 5 percent to $589.2 million, and operating income was $93.5 million, compared with $104.9 million in the same period a year ago.

Orders

Parker reported a decrease of 9 percent in orders for the quarter ending June 30, 2015, compared with the same quarter a year ago.  The company reported the following orders by business: 

  • Orders decreased 9 percent in the Diversified Industrial North America businesses
  • Orders decreased 5 percent in the Diversified Industrial International businesses
  • Orders decreased 14 percent in the Aerospace Systems segment on a rolling 12-month average basis.

Fiscal 2016 Outlook  

For the fiscal year ending June 30, 2016, the company has issued guidance for earnings from continuing operations in the range of $6.15 to $6.85 per share, or $6.65 to $7.35 per share on an adjusted basis.  Fiscal year 2016 guidance is adjusted for expected business realignment expenses of approximately $0.50 per share, of which $0.30 per share relates to the company's Simplification initiatives.

"We anticipate continued end market weakness in fiscal year 2016," commented Williams.  "Sales are expected to be down slightly and our results will be influenced by ongoing business realignment actions designed to drive efficiencies, streamline our operations and better serve our customers.  We also continue to position Parker for future growth.  To focus our efforts, we are finalizing a comprehensive refresh of the Win Strategy, which is targeted at driving top quartile financial performance and returns among our industrial peer companies.  We are excited about our opportunities to strengthen our leadership position and look forward to sharing the refreshed Win Strategy publicly in September during our Investor Day."

Note on Orders

Orders provide near-term perspective on the company's outlook, particularly when viewed in the context of prior and future quarterly order rates. However, orders are not in themselves an indication of future performance. All comparisons are at constant currency exchange rates, with the prior year restated to the current-year rates. All exclude acquisitions until they can be reflected in both the numerator and denominator. Aerospace comparisons are rolling 12-month average computations. The total Parker orders number is derived from a weighted average of the year-over-year quarterly percent change in orders for Diversified Industrial North America and Diversified Industrial International, and the year-over-year 12-month rolling average of orders for the Aerospace Systems segment.

Note on Non-GAAP Numbers

This press release contains references to (a) earnings per share without the effect of business realignment expenses, voluntary retirement expenses, asset write downs and a gain related to a joint venture agreement; (b) the effect of business realignment expenses on forecasted earnings from continuing operations per share; and (c) segment operating margins without the effect of business realignment expenses, voluntary retirement expenses and sales related to a joint venture agreement. The effects of business realignment expenses, voluntary retirement expenses, asset write downs and a gain related to a joint venture agreement are removed to allow investors and the company to meaningfully evaluate changes in earnings per share and segment operating margins on a comparable basis from period to period.

Forward-Looking Statements

Forward-looking statements contained in this and other written and oral reports are made based on known events and circumstances at the time of release, and as such, are subject in the future to unforeseen uncertainties and risks. All statements regarding future performance, earnings projections, events or developments are forward-looking statements. It is possible that the future performance and earnings projections of the company, including its individual segments, may differ materially from current expectations, depending on economic conditions within its mobile, industrial and aerospace markets, and the company's ability to maintain and achieve anticipated benefits associated with announced realignment activities, strategic initiatives to improve operating margins, actions taken to combat the effects of the current economic environment, and growth, innovation and global diversification initiatives. A change in the economic conditions in individual markets may have a particularly volatile effect on segment performance. Among other factors which may affect future performance are: changes in business relationships with and purchases by or from major customers, suppliers or distributors, including delays or cancellations in shipments, disputes regarding contract terms or significant changes in financial condition, changes in contract cost and revenue estimates for new development programs and changes in product mix; ability to identify acceptable strategic acquisition targets; uncertainties surrounding timing, successful completion or integration of acquisitions and similar transactions; the ability to successfully divest businesses planned for divestiture and realize the anticipated benefits of such divestitures; the determination to undertake business realignment activities and the expected costs thereof and, if undertaken, the ability to complete such activities and realize the anticipated cost savings from such activities; ability to implement successfully the Company's capital allocation initiatives, including timing, price and execution of share repurchases; threats associated with and efforts to combat terrorism; uncertainties surrounding the ultimate resolution of outstanding legal proceedings, including the outcome of any appeals; competitive market conditions and resulting effects on sales and pricing; increases in raw material costs that cannot be recovered in product pricing; the company's ability to manage costs related to insurance and employee retirement and health care benefits; and global economic factors, including manufacturing activity, air travel trends, currency exchange rates, difficulties entering new markets and general economic conditions such as inflation, deflation, interest rates and credit availability. The company makes these statements as of the date of this disclosure, and undertakes no obligation to update them unless otherwise required by law.
