  • Effectively executing against restructuring actions as all events are on schedule or completed.

MINNEAPOLIS, Jul 21, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Pentair, Inc. (NYSE: PNR) today announced second quarter 2009 net earnings per diluted share from continuing operations (EPS) of $0.33. This represents a decrease of 77 percent as compared to the $1.41 of EPS in the second quarter last year. Current period results include a negative $0.02 per share impact from restructuring charges and a negative $0.03 per share charge from the early redemption of bonds. Adjusting for these items, second quarter 2009 EPS was $0.38, compared to adjusted second quarter 2008 EPS of $0.70, a decrease of 46 percent.

Total company sales decreased 23 percent to $694 million, compared with $898 million in the second quarter of 2008. The company delivered second quarter operating income of $64 million. On an adjusted basis, the company delivered operating income of $67 million versus $120 million in the year-ago quarter. The company's adjusted operating income in the current quarter excludes the impact of additional severance charges associated with the second quarter elimination of 100 positions not included in prior restructuring. Overall, adjusted operating margins for the second quarter contracted 370 basis points to 9.6 percent. The positive impact from productivity and price did not offset the significant negative impact related to lower volumes.

Total company free cash flow was positive $131 million for the quarter. Year-to-date the company has generated $98 million of free cash flow, which is $39 million more than was generated in the first half of 2008. The company said it remains on track to achieve free cash flow greater than $225 million for 2009, driven by improvements in working capital.

"Overall we continue to make tremendous progress against our cost actions as well as to drive strong free cash flow generation. While a few of our markets are showing signs of improvement, most continue to remain soft, as expected," said Randall J. Hogan, Pentair chairman and chief executive officer.

SECOND QUARTER BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS

The Water Group delivered $487 million in sales, an 18 percent decline year-over-year. Sales were down 17 percent excluding the formation of the Pentair Residential Filtration (PRF) business with General Electric's (GE) Water and Process Technologies unit, which added two points of growth, and foreign exchange, which reduced sales by three points.

  • Global Flow Technologies sales were down 17 percent versus the year-ago quarter, as sales increases of pump equipment for North American municipal markets did not outpace declines in residential, commercial and agricultural markets.
  • Global Filtration sales were down 14 percent, or down 17 percent in local currencies and excluding the increased sales associated with the formation of PRF. Sales increases in desalination markets did not offset declines in residential, industrial and foodservice markets.
  • Global Pool and Spa sales were down 16 percent as a sequential uptick in second quarter sales associated with the summer pool season was not enough to overcome the prolonged decline in North American residential pool markets.

The Water Group's second quarter reported operating income totaled $50 million, down 16 percent as compared to $59 million in the same period last year. In the quarter, the Water Group had $1 million in pre-tax restructuring charges associated with severance from recently announced additional headcount reductions. Excluding these items, second quarter 2009 adjusted operating income was $51 million, down 38 percent versus second quarter 2008 adjusted operating income of $82 million. Adjusted operating margins of 10.5 percent were down 330 basis points as benefits from productivity and price did not offset the negative impact from volume declines, inflation, pay-as-you-go restructuring costs, and integration expenses associated with the formation of PRF.

Technical Products delivered second quarter 2009 sales of $207 million, a decrease of 32 percent versus the year-earlier period. Sales were down 30 percent excluding the impact of foreign exchange.

  • Global Electrical sales were down 28 percent as industrial customers dramatically slowed their capital projects and distributors aggressively reduced inventory levels.
  • Global Electronic sales were down 32 percent as each major vertical market contracted led by Datacom, which was down over 50 percent.

Technical Products' second quarter reported operating income totaled $24 million, down 53 percent compared to $50 million in the same quarter last year. Adjusting for a restructuring charge, operating income was $25 million. Adjusted operating margins were 12.0 percent, down 440 basis points versus the second quarter 2008. In the quarter, the benefits from productivity and price did not offset the negative impact from volume declines and foreign exchange.

"Second quarter results were generally in line with our expectations and guidance. Sales came in at the low end, as our Technical Products and Water European businesses could not overcome extremely soft April and May months. North America residential markets are beginning to improve or at least stabilize while commercial and industrial markets remain uncertain," Hogan said. "Also as expected, the solid progress we are making to reduce fixed and variable cost enabled margins in Water to rise back up above ten percent while Technical Products achieved twelve percent adjusted margins. So, our actions are yielding solid results and we continue to position our businesses for significant upside when markets recover."

OUTLOOK

The company introduces its third quarter reported 2009 EPS guidance range of $0.32 to $0.42. Adjusting for charges associated with new restructuring actions, third quarter EPS is expected to be $0.35 to $0.45, down approximately 29 percent year-over-year when using the midpoint of the guidance range. Third quarter sales are expected to be down over 20 percent.

The company maintains its full year 2009 EPS guidance to equal or exceed $1.40, which would be down 46 percent when compared to reported full year 2008 EPS or down 36 percent when 2008 EPS is adjusted for non-recurring items (see attached 2008 reconciliation table). The company expects full year 2009 EPS on both a reported and adjusted basis will be comparable as restructuring and other charges in 2009 are expected to be similar in size to anticipated gains from other nonrecurring items.

"We anticipate that the benefits we have achieved and expect to realize from our productivity actions will continue to accelerate in the second half of 2009," said Hogan. "We remain excited about our new product introductions, global growth prospects in many markets and our ability to support infrastructure projects included in the government stimulus package. A good example is last week's announcement that our Engineered Flow business won a $65 million municipal water contract, which highlights our strength in this key North American market."

"We expect the second half of 2009 will show continued earnings improvement as we realize more benefits from our productivity and cost actions and our year over year sales comparisons become less difficult," Hogan added.
