CIRCOR International Reports Second-Quarter 2012 Financial Results

CIRCOR International, Inc. (NYSE: CIR), a leading provider of valves and other highly engineered products for the energy, aerospace and industrial markets, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended July 1, 2012.

“We performed well in the second quarter and were especially pleased with the operational improvements and margin expansion achieved by our teams in our Energy and Flow Technologies segments,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bill Higgins. “Our strong second-quarter earnings growth was driven by Energy segment operating margins as both our North American short-cycle and international project businesses exhibited strong operational performance. Overall bookings were up year over year as a result of a significant increase in Energy orders led by a second straight quarter of strong international projects bookings, which bodes well for 2013.”

Consolidated Results

Revenues for the second quarter of 2012 were $219.9 million, a 15% increase from $191.9 million in the second quarter of 2011. Net income for the second quarter of 2012 was $11.1 million, or $0.64 per diluted share, compared with net income of $7.5 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2011.

Consolidated adjusted operating earnings were $18.5 million for the second quarter of 2012 compared with $12.4 million in the second quarter of 2011, an increase of 49%.

The Company received orders totaling $227.3 million during the second quarter of 2012, an increase of 6% compared with the second quarter of 2011. The increase was driven primarily by the Energy segment and was partially offset by weakness in Flow Technologies’ LED equipment and Aerospace’s landing gear aftermarket. Backlog as of July 1, 2012 was $422.3 million, down 4% from backlog of $442.0 million at July 3, 2011, primarily due to foreign currency changes.

During the second quarter of 2012, the Company generated $5.1 million of free cash flow (defined as net cash from operating activities less capital expenditures). This compares with $77.2 million of free cash flow used in the second quarter of 2011, which included the payment of $76.6 million in April 2011 to fund the Leslie Controls Bankruptcy Trust.

Energy

Energy segment revenues increased 38% to $113.5 million for the second quarter of 2012 from $82.0 million for the second quarter of 2011 due to organic growth across most markets of 46%, partially offset by a negative foreign currency impact of 8%.

Incoming orders for the second quarter of 2012 were $128.2 million, an increase of 24% year-over-year due to strength in almost all markets led by international project orders. Ending backlog totaled $197.4 million, a decrease of 13% year-over-year primarily the result of shipments of large pipeline projects booked in 2010 and the impact of unfavorable foreign currency fluctuations related to the large international project business.

For the second quarter of 2012, the Energy segment adjusted operating margin of 11.1% was up from 5.3% in the second quarter of 2011, primarily due to the significant volume increase and the associated leverage as well as improved pricing in large international projects, partially offset by increased expenses in Brazil as the Company invests in this new geographic region.

Aerospace

Aerospace segment revenues of $35.9 million for the second quarter of 2012 were in-line with the second quarter of 2011. The Aerospace segment revenues grew 4% organically, which was offset by a negative foreign currency impact of 4%.

Incoming orders for the second quarter of 2012 were $28.5 million, a decrease of 15% year-over-year primarily due to weak landing gear aftermarket orders. Ending backlog totaled $150.6 million, an increase of 13% year-over-year due to both military and commercial markets.

The Aerospace segment’s adjusted operating margin was 8.8% for the second quarter of 2012, down from 11.2% in the second quarter of 2011. Adjusted operating margin decreased primarily due to increased expenses for product development and manufacturing capabilities, which were partially offset by higher volumes and favorable product mix.

Flow Technologies

Flow Technologies segment revenues decreased 5% to $70.4 million for the second quarter of 2012 from $73.9 million in the second quarter of 2011. Second-quarter 2012 Flow Technologies segment revenues reflected an organic decline of 2% due to lower LED equipment shipments and a negative foreign currency impact of 3%.

Incoming orders for the Flow Technologies segment were $70.6 million for the second quarter of 2012, a decrease of 8% year-over-year, driven by the soft LED equipment market offsetting an average 3% growth across the other markets. Ending backlog totaled $74.3 million, a decrease of 11% year-over-year driven by lower LED equipment and navy orders.

The segment’s adjusted operating margin for the second quarter of 2012 was 12.8%, an increase from 12.4% in the second quarter of 2011.

Financial Outlook

CIRCOR currently expects revenues for the third quarter of 2012 in the range of $200 million to $210 million. Earnings are expected to be in the range of $0.48 to $0.60 per diluted share. CIRCOR’s guidance for earnings per share assumes a 28% tax rate and that exchange rates remain at present levels. These Q3 revenue estimates are slightly lower on a sequential basis due to the timing of Energy projects and the seasonality in Aerospace and other Europe-based businesses due to summer holiday shutdowns.

“Looking ahead, we continue to be excited about our prospects for growth and profitability,” said Higgins. “We are in great markets, we are well positioned to grow revenue both organically and through acquisitions, and we have an aggressive plan to increase margins and enhance shareholder value.”
