Parker Reports Fiscal 2014 Second Quarter Sales, Net Income and Earnings per Share

- Orders increase 5 percent, sales increase 1.3 percent, 3.1 percent organically

CLEVELAND, Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE: PH), the global leader in motion and control technologies, today reported results for the fiscal 2014 second quarter ended December 31, 2013. Fiscal 2014 second quarter sales increased 1.3 percent to $3.11 billion, compared with $3.07 billion in the prior year quarter. Organic growth was 3.1 percent, which excludes an increase of 0.3 percent from acquisitions, a decrease of 0.7 percent from foreign currency translation, and a decrease of 1.4 percent from a joint venture agreement with GE Aviation. Fiscal 2014 second quarter as reported net income was $253.4 million, or $1.66 earnings per diluted share compared with $181.1 million or $1.19 earnings per diluted share in the prior year quarter. Adjusted net income for the fiscal 2014 second quarter was $189.9 million, or $1.24 earnings per diluted share. Fiscal 2014 second quarter adjusted net income and earnings per diluted share exclude asset write downs and a previously announced gain associated with a joint venture agreement between Parker Aerospace and GE Aviation. A reconciliation of as reported net income and earnings per diluted share to adjusted net income and earnings per diluted share is included with the financial tables attached to this news release.

Cash flow from operations was $540.1 million or 8.5 percent of sales for the first six months of fiscal 2014 compared with $347.3 million or 5.5 percent of sales in the prior year period. Excluding a discretionary contribution to the company's pension plan of $75 million for the first six months of fiscal 2014 cash flow from operations was 9.7 percent of sales.

"Earnings on an adjusted basis were ahead of what we expected for this quarter as we continue to perform well operationally," said Chairman, CEO and President, Don Washkewicz. "With continued positive order growth and modestly improved macro-economic trends, we remain optimistic about stronger operating performance in the second half of fiscal year 2014."

Segment Results

Diversified Industrial Segment: North American second quarter sales increased 0.6 percent to $1.33 billion, and operating income was $200.6 million compared with $190.4 million in the same period a year ago. International second quarter sales increased 4.7 percent to $1.28 billion, and operating income was $134.2 million compared with $125.0 million in the same period a year ago.

Aerospace Systems Segment: Second quarter sales decreased 4.7 percent to $503.8 million, reflecting the impact of the previously announced joint venture between Parker Aerospace and GE Aviation, and operating income was $45.0 million compared with $52.2 million in the same period a year ago.

Orders

Parker reported an increase of 5 percent in orders for the quarter ending December 31, 2013, compared with the same quarter a year ago. The company reported the following orders by business:

  • Orders increased 3 percent in the Diversified Industrial North America businesses compared with the same quarter a year ago.
  • Orders increased 6 percent in the Diversified Industrial International businesses compared with the same quarter a year ago.
  • Orders increased 7 percent in the Aerospace Systems segment on a rolling 12-month average basis.

Outlook

For the fiscal year ending June 30, 2014, the company has provided guidance for adjusted earnings per diluted share in the range of $6.20 to $6.60. Fiscal 2014 adjusted earnings guidance includes previously announced restructuring expenses of approximately $0.47 per diluted share, but does not include the following non-recurring items: a gain of $1.68 per diluted share associated with the previously announced joint venture agreement between Parker Aerospace and GE Aviation and asset write downs of $1.26 earnings per diluted share recorded in the quarter ended December 31, 2013. Restructuring expenses were $0.07 per diluted share in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 and $0.13 per diluted share year-to-date.

Washkewicz added, "Operationally, our outlook is essentially unchanged. We are optimistic that modestly improved macro-economic trends will continue and anticipate that we will deliver another strong year."

Note on Orders

Orders provide near-term perspective on the company's outlook, particularly when viewed in the context of prior and future quarterly order rates. However, orders are not in themselves an indication of future performance. All comparisons are at constant currency exchange rates, with the prior year restated to the current-year rates. All exclude acquisitions until they can be reflected in both the numerator and denominator. Aerospace comparisons are rolling 12-month average computations. The total Parker orders number is derived from a weighted average of the year-over-year quarterly percent change in orders for Diversified Industrial North America and Diversified Industrial International, and the year-over-year 12-month rolling average of orders for the Aerospace Systems segment.

Note on Non-GAAP Numbers

This press release contains references to (a) sales growth excluding the effects of acquisitions, divestitures and currency exchange rates, (b) net income without the effect of a gain associated with a joint venture agreement and asset write downs, (c) actual and forecasted earnings per diluted share without the effect of a gain associated with a joint venture agreement and asset write downs, and (d) cash flow excluding discretionary contributions to the company's pension plan. The effects of acquisitions, divestitures, currency exchange rates, gain associated with a joint venture agreement, asset write downs, and pension plan contributions are removed to allow investors and the company to meaningfully evaluate changes in sales, net income, earnings per diluted share, and cash flow on a comparable basis from period to period.

Forward-Looking Statements

Forward-looking statements contained in this and other written and oral reports are made based on known events and circumstances at the time of release, and as such, are subject in the future to unforeseen uncertainties and risks. All statements regarding future performance, earnings projections, events or developments are forward-looking statements. It is possible that the future performance and earnings projections of the company, including its individual segments, may differ materially from current expectations, depending on economic conditions within its mobile, industrial and aerospace markets, and the company's ability to maintain and achieve anticipated benefits associated with announced realignment activities, strategic initiatives to improve operating margins, actions taken to combat the effects of the current economic environment, and growth, innovation and global diversification initiatives. A change in the economic conditions in individual markets may have a particularly volatile effect on segment performance. Among other factors which may affect future performance are: changes in business relationships with and purchases by or from major customers, suppliers or distributors, including delays or cancellations in shipments, disputes regarding contract terms or significant changes in financial condition, changes in contract cost and revenue estimates for new development programs and changes in product mix; ability to identify acceptable strategic acquisition targets; uncertainties surrounding timing, successful completion or integration of acquisitions and similar transactions; the ability to successfully divest businesses planned for divestiture and realize the anticipated benefits of such divestitures; the determination to undertake business realignment activities and the expected costs thereof and, if undertaken, the ability to complete such activities and realize the anticipated cost savings from such activities; the ability to realize anticipated benefits of the consolidation of the Climate and Industrial Controls Group; threats associated with and efforts to combat terrorism; uncertainties surrounding the ultimate resolution of outstanding legal proceedings, including the outcome of any appeals; competitive market conditions and resulting effects on sales and pricing; increases in raw material costs that cannot be recovered in product pricing; the company's ability to manage costs related to insurance and employee retirement and health care benefits; and global economic factors, including manufacturing activity, air travel trends, currency exchange rates, difficulties entering new markets and general economic conditions such as inflation, deflation, interest rates and credit availability. The company makes these statements as of the date of this disclosure, and undertakes no obligation to update them unless otherwise required by law.
