Colfax Reports Second Quarter 2017 Results

Annapolis Junction, MD, July 28, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --


/EIN News/ -- •          Achieved $0.43 of second quarter net income per diluted share
•          Grew Gas and Fluid Handling orders 8% organically, four consecutive quarters of growth
•          Fabrication Technology posted second straight quarter of organic growth
•          Completed two complementary acquisitions
•          Improved full year outlook

Colfax Corporation (NYSE: CFX), a leading global manufacturer of gas and fluid handling and fabrication technology products and services, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2017.

For the second quarter of 2017, net income was $53.4 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, compared to $39.8 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2016. Adjusted net income was $53.9 million, or $0.43 per share for the second quarter of 2017, compared to $50.3 million, or $0.41 per share for the second quarter of 2016.

The Company reported second quarter net sales of $965.8 million, compared with $957.2 million in the second quarter of 2016. Growth included 1% organic growth and 1% from acquisitions, partially offset by changes in foreign currency translation rates.

Second quarter operating income was $92.0 million or 9.5% of sales, and adjusted operating income was $92.5 million or 9.6% of sales. Prior year second quarter operating income was $73.1 million or 7.6% of sales, and the adjusted operating income was $87.6 million or 9.1% of sales.

“We returned to organic growth in the second quarter led by further strengthening in our Fabrication Technology business,” said Matthew Trerotola, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We have delivered the fourth consecutive quarter of strong orders performance in our Gas and Fluid Handling segment and expect the segment to return to organic growth in the third quarter. We also completed two exciting technology-focused acquisitions in our Fabrication Technology business, adding leading technologies in welding process analytics and robotic welding torches that further builds out our technology offerings for customers to improve their productivity.”

“I am encouraged by the traction we are gaining with our growth initiatives, both organic and inorganic, in an improving market environment,” Mr. Trerotola continued. “We also made progress in the second quarter to improve profitability, posting a 50 basis point improvement in adjusted margins largely as a result of structural cost savings. With another quarter of solid execution and building momentum, we are pleased to improve our performance expectations for the full year.”

Considering first half performance and improved market conditions, Colfax revised its outlook for the year, increasing its diluted earnings per share forecast from $1.34-$1.49 to $1.45-$1.55 and its adjusted earnings per share forecast from $1.60-$1.75 to $1.65-$1.75. This outlook does not include the effects, if any, from the acquisition of Siemens Turbomachinery Equipment, which is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Colfax will host a conference call to provide details about its results on Friday, July 28, 2017 at 9:00 a.m. EDT.

Colfax has provided in this press release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, projected adjusted net income per share, adjusted operating income and adjusted operating income margin exclude Restructuring and other related items. The effective tax rates used to calculate adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share are 29.9% and 28.8% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, respectively. The effective tax rates used to calculate adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share are 30.9% and 30.1% for the three and six months ended July 1, 2016.
