CIRCOR Reports Second-Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Companies mentioned in this article: CIRCOR International, Inc.

BURLINGTON, Mass. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- CIRCOR International, Inc. (NYSE: CIR), a leading provider of valves and other highly engineered products for markets including oil & gas, power generation and aerospace & defense, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 29, 2014.

Second-Quarter 2014 Highlights

  • Adjusted operating margin expanded 70 basis points to 10.7%
  • Adjusted EPS grew 12% to $0.91
  • Year-to-date free cash flow was $21.8 million, 82% of net income
  • Orders up 2%
  • Growth and restructuring initiatives remain on track

“CIRCOR continued to demonstrate strong bottom-line improvement during the second quarter,” said Scott Buckhout, CIRCOR President and Chief Executive Officer. “We achieved a 70 basis point increase in adjusted operating margin to 10.7% largely driven by restructuring and cost control initiatives.”

“Similar to the first quarter, second-quarter quoting activity remained strong in upstream oil and gas, as well as in power generation; however, actual bookings continue to be slow. In our Aerospace & Defense business, bookings were up over the prior year.”

“Our ability to meet our bottom-line expectations is a result of our focus on expanding margins through operational excellence and the CIRCOR simplification program. We expect that our margin expansion initiatives will gain further traction throughout the year.”

“We continue to make investments in transforming CIRCOR into a growth company. We are increasing our sales and engineering capacity in key international growth markets while we focus more resources on developing innovative new products,” concluded Buckhout.

Third-Quarter 2014 Guidance

For the third quarter of 2014, the Company expects:

  • Revenues in the range of $200 million to $215 million;
  • Adjusted earnings per share, excluding restructuring and special charges, in the range of $0.87 to $0.94; and,
  • Restructuring and special related charges of approximately $1.6 million to $2.0 million.
