AMETEK ANNOUNCES RECORD RESULTS
Increasing 2011 Earnings Estimate to $2.30 - $2.34 Per Diluted Share--

BERWYN, Pa., July 26, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --

AMETEK, Inc. (NYSE: AME) today announced second quarter results that established quarterly records for sales, operating income, net income and diluted earnings per share. In addition, backlog at June 30, 2011 was $948 million -- an all time high.

AMETEK's second quarter 2011 sales of $758.8 million were up 28% over the $591.9 million reported in the second quarter of 2010. Operating income for the second quarter of 2011 was $157.0 million, a 36% increase from $115.6 million recorded in the same period of 2010. Operating margins improved 120 basis points to 20.7% in the second quarter of 2011. Net income in the second quarter of 2011 increased 40% to $94.1 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, from the second quarter 2010 level of $67.4 million, or $0.42 per diluted share.

"AMETEK had a great second quarter. Orders were up 24% to $797 million in the quarter with particular strength in our long cycle process, power and aerospace markets. Sales were up 28% on the strength of the order input and the contributions from acquisitions completed during the last year. Our focus on Operational Excellence, coupled with the higher sales, resulted in record earnings for the quarter," noted Frank S. Hermance, AMETEK Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

"Cash flow was superb, with operating cash flow totaling $115 million for the quarter, an increase of 30% over the second quarter of 2010," continued Mr. Hermance.

For the first half of 2011, AMETEK sales increased 29% to $1.48 billion from $1.15 billion in the same period of 2010. Operating income increased 42% to $309.0 million, from $218.0 million earned in the first half of last year. Net income for the first half of 2011 was $184.6 million, up 47% from $125.3 million in the same period of 2010. Diluted earnings per share were $1.14 for the first half of 2011, up 46% from $0.78 per diluted share in the first half of 2010.

Electronic Instruments Group (EIG)

For the 2011 second quarter, EIG sales increased 31% to $407.4 million. Operating income was $101.5 million, compared with $73.7 million in the second quarter of 2010, an increase of 38%. Operating margins for the quarter increased 110 basis points to 24.9% as compared to 23.8% in the second quarter of 2010.

"EIG had an excellent second quarter. Strong core growth resulted from the continuing strength in our Process, Power and Industrial businesses. As expected, our oil and gas businesses showed sizable strength. The recent Atlas Materials Testing Technology acquisition also contributed to the revenue increase. This higher revenue, coupled with a streamlined cost structure, enabled us to significantly expand operating margins," said Mr. Hermance.

Electromechanical Group (EMG)

For the second quarter of 2011, EMG sales were $351.5 million, a 25% increase over the same period of 2010. Operating income of $69.2 million was up 32% from the $52.3 million recorded in the same period of 2010. Operating margins for the quarter were up 120 basis points to 19.7%, as compared to 18.5% in the second quarter of 2010.

"EMG also had a very good quarter. Sales were up on strong growth in our differentiated businesses as well as the contributions from the Technical Services for Electronics, Haydon Kerk, Avicenna Technology and Coining acquisitions. Operating margins improved by 120 basis points, driven by higher revenue and our lowered cost structure," commented Mr. Hermance.

2011 Outlook

"We expect our businesses to continue to show solid growth in 2011, with our longer cycle oil and gas, power and aerospace business showing particular strength. Our record backlog, strong portfolio of businesses, proven operational capabilities, and a successful focus on strategic acquisitions should enable us to perform well in 2011," noted Mr. Hermance.

"We anticipate 2011 revenue to be up high teens on a percentage basis from 2010. Earnings for 2011 are expected to be in the range of $2.30 to $2.34 per diluted share, up 31% to 33% over 2010, reflecting the leveraged impact of core growth and our streamlined cost structure. This is an increase from our previous guidance of $2.20 to $2.25 per diluted share," added Mr. Hermance.

"Third quarter 2011 sales are expected to be up approximately mid teens on a percentage basis over last year's third quarter. We estimate our earnings to be approximately $0.57 to $0.59 per diluted share, an increase of 19% to 23% over last year's third quarter of $0.48 per diluted share," concluded Mr. Hermance.
