Gardner Denver Delivers Record Results

WAYNE, PA--(Marketwire - Jul 21, 2011) - Gardner Denver, Inc. (NYSE: GDI)

  • Strong second quarter 2011 orders of $637.0 million and revenues of $610.7 million, up 27% and 36%, respectively, over the same period of 2010.
  • Record Diluted Earnings per Share ("DEPS") were $1.27 for the second quarter, an increase of 79% compared to $0.71 in the second quarter of 2010.
  • Updated guidance: estimated third quarter 2011 DEPS of $1.27 to $1.32 and total year DEPS of $5.05 to $5.15, including profit improvement costs and other items totaling $0.03 per diluted share for the third quarter and $0.15 per diluted share for the full year.

Gardner Denver, Inc. (NYSE: GDI) today announced second quarter 2011 results that established quarterly records for orders, revenues, operating income and DEPS. In addition, backlog at June 30, 2011 was $681.7 million, an all-time high. Revenues and operating income were $610.7 million and $99.2 million, respectively. Operating income improved 75% compared to the three-month period of the prior year, increasing to $99.2 million from $56.6 million in 2010. Operating income as a percentage of revenues was 16.2% in the second quarter of 2011, up 360 basis points compared to 12.6% in last year's second quarter. The increase in operating income was largely driven by incremental profitability on the revenue growth, favorable product mix and the benefits of operational improvements previously implemented. For the second quarter of 2011, net income and DEPS attributable to Gardner Denver were $67.1 million and $1.27, respectively. The three-month period ended June 30, 2011 included expenses for profit improvement initiatives and other items totaling $5.2 million, or $0.08 DEPS.

CEO's Comments

"Gardner Denver had an outstanding second quarter with strong, broad based organic growth across our diverse portfolio of businesses and significant margin expansion," said Barry L. Pennypacker, Gardner Denver's President and Chief Executive Officer. "As evidenced by the record breaking orders, revenue and DEPS achieved in the second quarter, we continue to progress on our strategic priorities and improve operational execution supported by the Gardner Denver Way. Both of the Company's reportable segments delivered strong operational performance in the quarter, resulting in operating margins expanding by 360 basis points compared to the prior year. The Industrial Products Group (IPG) improved margins sequentially for the ninth consecutive quarter and continued to benefit from healthy organic growth in North America and Asia Pacific. The Engineered Products Group (EPG) benefited from broad strength across the portfolio and especially strong demand for petroleum pumps and related aftermarket parts and services."

Mr. Pennypacker continued, "Cash provided by operating activities was more than $66 million in the second quarter, a 63% improvement compared to the same period of 2010. In addition, we invested $13.0 million in capital expenditures in the second quarter of 2011, with a sustained focus on operational improvements and increased production output to meet customer demand. The Company expects capital expenditures to total approximately $50 to $55 million in 2011. Our focus on cash generation and disciplined capital allocation remains a top priority for 2011. The acquisition pipeline is strong, and we continue to selectively evaluate appropriate opportunities as they become available."

Outlook

"Our backlog for EPG remains at record levels, yielding a very positive outlook for the remainder of 2011. Demand for well servicing pumps and aftermarket fluid ends continues to grow sharply as shale activity increases and we are investing in additional capacity to meet these growing needs. Further, the demand for engineered packages and OEM compressors remains strong," commented Mr. Pennypacker.

"For the remainder of 2011, we expect continued revenue growth in IPG as a result of healthy demand in our core end markets as well as strong growth in emerging markets such as China. We anticipate that global capacity utilization will remain steady in 2011, resulting in sustained levels of manufacturing spending and investment in customer plants. We remain optimistic that this steady growth will drive demand for IPG's compressors, blowers and vacuum products as well as opportunities for replacement parts and services."

Mr. Pennypacker stated, "Based on this outlook, our existing backlog and productivity improvement plans, we are projecting third quarter 2011 DEPS to be in a range of $1.27 to $1.32 and are raising our full-year 2011 DEPS range to $5.05 to $5.15. This projection includes profit improvement costs and other items totaling $0.03 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2011 and $0.15 per diluted share for the full-year 2011. Third quarter 2011 DEPS, as adjusted for the impact of profit improvement costs and other items ("Adjusted DEPS"), are expected to be in a range of $1.30 to $1.35. The midpoint of the Adjusted DEPS range for the third quarter of 2011 ($1.33) represents a 51% increase over the same period of 2010. Full-year 2011 Adjusted DEPS are expected to be in a range of $5.20 to $5.30. The midpoint of the updated Adjusted DEPS range for the full-year 2011 ($5.25) represents a 55% increase over 2010 results and a 13% increase from the full-year 2011 guidance issued in April. The effective tax rate assumed in the DEPS guidance for 2011 is unchanged at 28%."

Engineered Products Group (EPG)

EPG orders and revenues increased 43% and 56%, respectively, for the three months ended June 30, 2011, compared to the same period of 2010, reflecting sustained, strong demand for drilling and well servicing pumps and engineered packages. In the second quarter of 2011, favorable changes in foreign currency exchange rates increased orders and revenues for EPG by 5% and 6%, respectively. The ILMVAC acquisition, completed in the third quarter of 2010, increased both orders and revenues by 2%. Organically, EPG generated order and revenue growth of 36% and 48%, respectively, in the second quarter of 2011, compared to the prior year period.

Segment operating income(1), as reported under generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. ("GAAP"), for EPG for the three months ended June 30, 2011 was $64.8 million and segment operating margin(1) was 22.9%, compared to $36.4 million and 20.1%, respectively, in the same period of 2010. Operating Income, as adjusted to exclude the net impact of expenses incurred for profit improvement initiatives and other items ("Adjusted Operating Income"), for EPG for the second quarter of 2011 was $65.9 million and segment Adjusted Operating Income as a percentage of revenues was 23.3%. Adjusted Operating Income for EPG in the second quarter of 2010 was $35.2 million, or 19.5% of revenues. The improvement in Adjusted Operating Income for this segment was primarily attributable to incremental profitability on revenue growth, favorable product mix and cost reductions. See the "Selected Financial Data Schedule" and the "Reconciliation of Operating Income and DEPS to Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted DEPS" at the end of this press release.

Industrial Products Group (IPG)

Orders and revenues for IPG increased 15% and 22%, respectively, in the second quarter, compared to the same period of 2010, reflecting on-going improvement in demand for OEM products, compressors and aftermarket parts and services. In the second quarter of 2011, favorable changes in foreign currency exchange rates increased orders and revenues for the Industrial Products segment by 9%. Organically, IPG generated order and revenue growth of 6% and 13%, respectively, in the second quarter of 2011, compared to the prior year period.

Segment operating income(1) and segment operating margin(1), as reported under GAAP, for the Industrial Products segment for the three months ended June 30, 2011 were $34.3 million and 10.5%, respectively, compared to $20.2 million and 7.5% of revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2010. Adjusted Operating Income for IPG in the second quarter of 2011 was $38.5 million and Adjusted Operating Income as a percentage of revenues was 11.7%. By comparison, Adjusted Operating Income for IPG was $23.2 million, or 8.6% of revenues, in the three-month period of 2010. The improvement in Adjusted Operating Income for this segment was primarily attributable to incremental profit on revenue growth and cost reductions. See the "Selected Financial Data Schedule" and the "Reconciliation of Operating Income and DEPS to Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted DEPS" at the end of this press release.

Gardner Denver Consolidated Results

Adjusted Operating income, which excludes the net impact of expenses incurred for profit improvement initiatives and other items ($5.2 million), for the three-month period ended June 30, 2011 was $104.4 million, compared to $58.4 million in the prior year period. Adjusted Operating Income as a percentage of revenues improved to 17.1% from 13.0% in the second quarter of 2010. Adjusted DEPS for the three-month period ended June 30, 2011, were $1.35, compared to $0.73 in the three-month period of 2010. Adjusted Operating Income, on a consolidated and segment basis, and Adjusted DEPS are both financial measures that are not in accordance with GAAP. See "Reconciliation of Operating Income and DEPS to Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted DEPS" at the end of this press release. Gardner Denver believes the non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted DEPS provide important supplemental information to both management and investors regarding financial and business trends used in assessing its results of operations. Gardner Denver believes excluding the specified items from operating income and DEPS provides a more meaningful comparison to the corresponding reported periods and internal budgets and forecasts, assists investors in performing analysis that is consistent with financial models developed by investors and research analysts, provides management with a more relevant measurement of operating performance and is more useful in assessing management performance.
