CIRCOR Reports Preliminary Third-Quarter 2019 Financial Results

November 6, 2019

BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 6, 2019--

CIRCOR International, Inc. (NYSE: CIR), a leading provider of flow control solutions and other highly engineered products for the Industrial, Aerospace & Defense, and Energy markets, today announced adjusted and preliminary GAAP financial results for the third quarter ended September 29, 2019.

The results presented in this press release are considered preliminary, as the Company has not completed its review procedures related to reporting discontinued operations and related impairments and associated tax effects. As the Company completes its review, material adjustments may arise between the date of this press release and the date the Company files with the Securities and Exchange Commission its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 29, 2019.

Third-Quarter 2019 Highlights

“We had a solid third-quarter 2019 with continuing operations delivering 7% organic revenue growth and 11.0% adjusted operating margin, up 160 basis points from a year ago,” said Scott Buckhout, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Consistent with our stated strategy to exit commodity businesses, simplify the Company, and accelerate the deleveraging process, we completed divestures of two non-core businesses and reduced our debt by $89 million during the quarter. In October, we announced our intention to sell our Distributed Valves business, in-line with our strategic shift away from upstream oil and gas and focus on more attractive end markets with enhanced growth and earnings potential.

“Our third quarter performance and outlook for the remainder of the year are in-line with the targets communicated in our 18-month plan. We remain committed to driving long-term growth, expanding margins, generating strong free cash flow, and deleveraging the Company as we drive value for shareholders,” concluded Mr. Buckhout.

Fourth-Quarter 2019 Guidance

For the fourth quarter of 2019, CIRCOR expects revenue in the range of $238 million to $248 million, and GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations in the range of $0.03 to $0.19, which reflects acquisition-related amortization expense of $(0.49), and other special and restructuring charges of $(0.24) to $(0.20). Excluding the impact of amortization and special and restructuring (charges) gains, adjusted EPS is expected to be in the range of $0.78 to $0.88 per share. The revenue and adjusted EPS exclude the results from the Company’s Distributed Valves business, which will continue to be reported as discontinued operations until a sale is completed. Presentation slides that provide supporting information to this guidance and third-quarter results are posted on the “Investors” section of the Company’s website, http://investors.circor.com, and will be discussed during the conference call at 9:00 a.m. ET today, November 6, 2019.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted operating income, Adjusted operating margin, Adjusted net income, Adjusted earnings per share (diluted), EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, net debt, free cash flow and organic growth, (and such measures further excluding divested businesses) are non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are used by management in our financial and operating decision making because we believe they reflect our ongoing business and facilitate period-to-period comparisons. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating the Company’s current operating performance and future prospects in the same manner as management does, if they so choose. These non-GAAP financial measures also allow investors and others to compare the Company’s current financial results with the Company’s past financial results in a consistent manner.

For example:

CIRCOR’s management uses these non-GAAP measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, as the basis for measuring the Company’s operating performance and comparing such performance to that of prior periods and to the performance of our competitors. We use such measures when publicly providing our business outlook, assessing future earnings potential, evaluating potential acquisitions and dispositions and in our financial and operating decision-making process, including for compensation purposes.

Investors should recognize that these non-GAAP measures might not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. These measures should be considered in addition and not as a substitute for or superior to, any measure of performance, cash flow or liquidity prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures is included in this news release.

Safe Harbor Statement

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27 A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21 E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Reliance should not be placed on forward-looking statements because they involve unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, which are, in some cases, beyond the control of CIRCOR. Any statements in this press release that are not statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, those relating to CIRCOR’s fourth-quarter 2019 guidance, our future performance, including future growth and profitability, increase in shareholder value, realization of cost reductions from restructuring activities and expected synergies, plans to reduce our outstanding debt and our corporate priorities. Actual events, performance or results could differ materially from the anticipated events, performance or results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause actual results to vary from expectations include, but are not limited to: our ability to respond to competitive developments and to grow our business, both domestically and internationally; changes in the cost, quality or supply of raw materials; our ability to comply with our debt obligations; our ability to successfully implement our acquisition, divestiture or restructuring strategies, including our integration of the Fluid Handling business; changes in industry standards, trade policies or government regulations, both in the United States and internationally; our ability to operate our manufacturing facilities at current or higher levels and respond to increases in manufacturing costs; and any actions of stockholders or other in response to expiration of the recent unsolicited tender offer and the cost and disruption of responding to those actions.
