IDEX Corporation Reports Record Quarter - Second Quarter 2011 Results of 20% Sales Growth, 19% Orders Growth and 24% Adjusted EPS Growth

LAKE FOREST, Ill., Jul 20, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- IDEX Corporation (NYSE: IEX) today announced its financial results for the three-month period ended June 30, 2011.

New orders in the quarter totaled $447 million, up 19 percent over the prior year period. Sales in the quarter totaled $454 million, 20 percent higher than the prior year period.

Second quarter 2011 reported operating income was $80 million, resulting in an operating margin of 17.5 percent, up 90 basis points from the prior year reported operating margin. Adjusted for a $3.0 million CVI Melles Griot non-cash acquisition fair value inventory charge, second quarter adjusted operating margin was 18.2 percent, up 130 basis points from the prior year adjusted operating margin, which excluded restructuring-related charges. In addition, reported operating income in the second quarter of 2011 was negatively impacted by approximately $3.7 million of acquisition related costs, partially offset by a $2.8 million gain from the sale of a facility.

Second quarter reported EPS was 60 cents, an increase of 11 cents, or 22 percent, from the second quarter of the prior year reported EPS of 49 cents. Excluding the effect of the inventory charge referenced above, adjusted EPS was 62 cents and 24 percent higher than prior year adjusted EPS of 50 cents.

Second Quarter 2011 Highlights

  • Orders increased 19 percent compared to the prior year (+8 percent organic, +7 percent acquisitions and +4 percent foreign currency translation).
  • Sales increased 20 percent compared to the prior year (+8 percent organic, +8 percent acquisitions and +4 percent foreign currency translation).
  • Operating margin for the second quarter was up 90 basis points on a reported basis and up 130 basis points on an adjusted basis.
  • Reported net income of $50 million was $10 million, or 24 percent, higher than the prior year reported net income.
  • Reported EPS of 60 cents was 11 cents, or 22 percent, higher than the prior year reported EPS.
  • Adjusted EPS of 62 cents was 12 cents, or 24 percent, higher than the prior year adjusted EPS.
  • EBITDA of $97 million was 21 percent of sales and covered interest expense by more than 14 times.
  • Free cash flow was $46 million.

"The IDEX team delivered another very strong quarter. We continue to take advantage of healthy secular trends and capture share in our target end markets. In particular, we experienced broad based, better than expected results across the Fluid and Metering segment in the quarter. Our new acquisitions are performing extremely well and margin continues to improve as a result of fixed cost leverage and solid productivity gains.

We have invested significantly in the business for long-term growth and to ensure short-term supply chain flexibility. We will continue to acquire Health and Science and Fluid and Metering businesses this year supported by our very strong balance sheet.

Our newest acquisition, CVI Melles Griot, will be accretive this year excluding the impact of non-cash acquisition inventory charges. Accordingly, we are expecting EPS for the third quarter to be 60 to 62 cents and we are increasing full year EPS to a range of $2.40 to $2.46, up 21 to 24 percent versus 2010. This full year EPS guidance assumes higher interest expense in the fourth quarter from an anticipated debt issuance. As we build and integrate the Optics/Photonics platform, we expect to improve profitability and drive further accretion.

While the macro environment remains mixed, we are well positioned and anticipate continued strong performance for the remainder of the year."

Lawrence D. Kingsley
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Second Quarter 2011 Business Highlights (2010 adjusted operating margin excludes restructuring-related charges)

Fluid & Metering Technologies

  • Sales in the second quarter of $205 million reflected a 22 percent increase compared to the second quarter of 2010 (+16 percent organic, +2 percent acquisitions and +4 percent foreign currency translation).
  • Operating margin of 19.6 percent represented a 180 basis point improvement compared to the second quarter 2010 adjusted operating margin. The improvement in operating margin was primarily related to higher volumes and productivity.

The improvement in the 2011 adjusted operating margin was the result of higher volumes and productivity.

Dispensing Equipment

  • Sales in the second quarter of $36 million reflected a 12 percent decrease compared to the second quarter of 2010 (-21 percent organic and +9 percent for foreign currency translation) due to the prior year North American replenishment program.
  • Operating margin of 28.7 percent represented a 510 basis point improvement compared to the second quarter of 2010 operating margin, primarily due to a $2.8 million gain from the sale of a facility in Italy.

IDEX Closes on CVI Melles Griot

On May 10, 2011, IDEX announced a definitive agreement to acquire all of the outstanding membership interest of CVI Melles Griot. On June 10, 2011, IDEX completed the acquisition of CVI Melles Griot. CVI Melles Griot operates within IDEX's Health & Science Technologies segment as a part of the IDEX optics and photonics platform.

EBITDA and Free Cash Flow

EBITDA means earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, while free cash flow means cash flow from operating activities less capital expenditures plus the excess tax benefit from stock-based compensation. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures as internal operating metrics and for enterprise valuation purposes. Management believes these measures are useful as analytical indicators of leverage capacity and debt servicing ability, and uses them to measure financial performance as well as for planning purposes. However, they should not be considered as alternatives to net income, cash flow from operating activities or any other items calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP, or as an indicator of operating performance. The definitions of EBITDA and free cash flow used here may differ from those used by other companies.
