CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SPX FLOW, Inc. (NYSE: FLOW) today reported results for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2017 and issued its 2018 full year guidance.

"Over the past two years we created a strong, healthy foundation for the future.  We completed the execution of our realignment program and transitioned to a customer-focused operating structure, which is simplifying how we work together and unlocking our potential for growth and improvement," said Marc Michael, President and Chief Executive Officer.

"Our people have shown tremendous resiliency through this transition, great pride in our products and a strong desire to provide first class customer service. These are critical attributes for our drive to transform SPX FLOW into a world-class operating enterprise."

"Looking back at 2017, we finished with a solid fourth quarter, highlighted by 25% order growth, strong cash generation and continued debt reduction. For the full year, orders grew 10% and backlog increased 27% to $1.0 billion. We generated $205 million of operating cash flow and reduced net debt by $262 million, or 29%. Net leverage was down to 3.0x at year end, a significant accomplishment."

"As for 2018, we are targeting revenue growth of 4% to 6% with EPS in the range of $2.21 to $2.56 per share and EBITDA between $240 and $260 million."

"I'm encouraged with the current state of our company and I'm confident in our strategy to create shareholder value. We are prioritizing investments in our highest value product lines and emphasizing continuous improvement across the enterprise to generate margin expansion. We are in a strong financial position to invest in our business and see potential for significant value creation as we pivot our strategy to growth and continuous improvement to expand margins," Michael concluded.

Fourth Quarter 2017 Overview:

  • Orders increased 24.6% to $564.9 million, as compared to $453.3 million in the year-ago quarter. Organic orders increased 20.2%, or $91.6 million, with growth across all three segments, including two large dairy processing systems awards totaling $71.5 million in the Food and Beverage segment. The impact of the U.S. dollar versus foreign currencies increased orders by 4.4%, or $20.0 million
    • Excluding large capital orders (1), orders grew organically by $20.1 million to $493.4 million, up 4.4% from the year-ago quarter, driven by the Power and Energy segment. 
  • Revenues increased 6.8% to $529.2 million, from $495.4 million in the year-ago quarter. Organic revenues* increased 2.2%, or $10.9 million, primarily due to increased shipments of valves and pumps into midstream oil applications, and to a lesser extent, aftermarket sales. The impact of the weaker U.S. dollar versus foreign currencies increased revenues by 4.6%, or $22.9 million.
  • Operating income and margin were $42.0 million and 7.9%, compared to operating income and margin of $10.9 million and 2.2% in the year-ago quarter. 
    • The company recorded $1.7 million of special charges primarily related to its previously announced realignment program, compared to $15.5 million in the year-ago quarter.

Fourth Quarter 2017 Results by Segment:

Food and Beverage
Revenues for Q4 2017 were $197.1 million, compared to $182.5 million in Q4 2016, an increase of $14.6 million, or 8.0%. Organic revenues* grew 3.3%, or $6.1 million, and currency fluctuations increased revenues 4.7%, or $8.5 million. The increase in organic revenues was due primarily to higher volumes of aftermarket and component sales, partially offset by lower volume of systems projects.

Segment income was $22.2 million, or 11.3% of revenues, in Q4 2017, compared to $18.2 million, or 10.0% of revenues, in Q4 2016. Segment income and margin increased primarily due to improved project execution costs, savings from restructuring actions and cost reduction initiatives, and improved productivity in our Bydgoszcz, Poland facility. These items were partially offset by increased variable incentive compensation.

Power and Energy
Revenues for Q4 2017 were $151.3 million, compared to $129.9 million in Q4 2016, an increase of $21.4 million, or 16.5%. Organic revenues* grew 10.9%, or $14.2 million, and currency fluctuations increased revenues 5.6%, or $7.2 million. The increase in organic revenue was due largely to an increase in revenue related to valves and pumps used in midstream oil applications, and to a lesser extent, aftermarket sales.

Segment income was $14.2 million, or 9.4% of revenues, in Q4 2017, compared to $7.7 million, or 5.9% of revenues, in Q4 2016. The increase in segment income and margin was due primarily to the organic revenue increase described above, savings from restructuring actions and cost reduction initiatives, and partially offset by increased variable incentive compensation.

Industrial
Revenues for Q4 2017 were $180.8 million, compared to $183.0 million in Q4 2016, a decline of $2.2 million, or 1.2%. Organic revenues* declined 5.1%, or $9.4 million, and currency fluctuations increased revenues 3.9%, or $7.2 million. The organic revenue decline was due primarily to lower shipments of OE and aftermarket mixers, partially offset by increased sales of hydraulic tools.

Segment income was $22.2 million, or 12.3% of revenues, in Q4 2017, compared to $29.5 million, or 16.1% of revenues, in Q4 2016. The decrease in segment income and margin was driven primarily by the decline in mixer shipments mentioned above, increased variable incentive compensation, and a legal settlement. These items were partially offset by savings from restructuring actions and cost reduction initiatives.

Full Year 2017 Overview:

  • Orders increased 10.2% to $2.12 billion from $1.92 billion in the prior year. Organic orders grew by $186.5 million, or 9.7% with growth across all three segments, highlighted by high-teens order growth in Power and Energy. Foreign currency was a modest benefit. 
  • Revenues declined 2.2% to $1.95 billion from $2.00 billion in the prior year. The impact of the weaker U.S. dollar on foreign currencies increased revenues by 0.8%, or $14.7 million. Organic revenues* decreased 3.0%, due largely to a lower opening backlog in oil and dairy related product lines.
  • Operating income (loss) was $119.1 million as compared to ($382.6) million in the prior year. 
  • Segment income and margin were $196.5 million and 10.1%, compared to $199.3 million and 10.0% in the prior year. Increased cost savings driven by the company's global realignment program and improved project execution costs were offset by the revenue decline described above, lower utilization rates at certain large facilities and higher variable incentive compensation.
  • Special charges were $19.3 million, compared to $79.8 million in the prior year, and substantially related to the company's global realignment program.
  • Diluted net earnings per share were $1.10 and included:
    • Special charges of ($0.37) per share primarily related to the company's global realignment program.
    • Discrete and other tax benefits of $0.20 per share, primarily relating to the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
  • Excluding the items noted above, adjusted earnings per share* were $1.27
  • Net cash from operating activities was $205.0 million and included ($37.5) million of cash outflows in support of the company's realignment program.
  • Free cash flow* was $185.6 million and included the net cash from operating activities described above and ($19.4) million in capital expenditures. 
  • Adjusted free cash flow* for the full year 2017 was $223.1 million.
  • Net income for the full year 2017 was $46.4 million

OTHER ITEMS

Global Realignment Program:  As previously disclosed, the company is optimizing its global footprint, streamlining business processes and reducing selling, general and administrative expense through a global realignment program. The realignment program is intended to reduce costs across operating sites and corporate and global functions, in part by making structural changes and process enhancements to help the company operate more efficiently. The realignment program was initiated in 2015 and the vast majority of the planned actions were completed at the end of 2017. The total costs of the program, which have been fully incurred were $138.0 million with annualized savings of approximately $140.0 million, to be fully realized by the end of 2018.

Debt Repayment:  During Q4 the company made voluntary prepayments of $100.0 million on its term loan. These payments, coupled with the required principal payments reduced the outstanding principal balance of the term loan to $270.0 million. On January 31, 2018 the company made a voluntary prepayment of $30.0 million on its term loan, reducing the outstanding principal to $240.0 million.

Income Taxes:  As a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the company recorded a net tax benefit of $20.8 million in the fourth quarter. This included a tax benefit of $17.8 million related to the revaluation of its U.S. federal net deferred tax liabilities. It also included a $53.4 million tax benefit associated with previously accrued repatriation tax on foreign earnings deemed not to be indefinitely reinvested. Additionally, the company recorded a provisional estimate of $50.4 million related to the mandatory one-time "deemed repatriation" of accumulated post-1986 foreign earnings which have not been previously taxed. The company expects to pay U.S. federal tax of approximately $18.8 million on the deemed repatriation after utilization of tax loss and foreign tax credit carryforwards. The Company expects to pay this amount over the next eight years as a result of fiscal year-ends of certain foreign subsidiaries ending after December 31, 2017. 

Form 10-K:  The company expects to file its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 6, 2018. This press release should be read in conjunction with that filing, which will be available on the company's website at www.spxflow.com, in the Investor Relations section.
