CEO’s Remarks

John L. Stauch, President and CEO, stated, “During these unprecedented times, I would first like to express my sincere gratitude to our employees around the globe for providing the best service possible to our customers and supporting the communities that we do business in and the people who live in them. We remain focused on the health and safety of our employees, our customers and on longer term investment opportunities where appropriate.”

“After a very slow start to the quarter, we began to see improvements in May and June in our Residential facing businesses. In particular, our Pool business has benefited from increased consumer interest as people sheltered in place. Our Industrial businesses have been negatively impacted by a pause in capital spending globally and our Commercial businesses have also been negatively impacted by delays from customers. We delivered strong free cash flow during the quarter and further strengthened our liquidity position. For the second quarter overall, we were pleased with our ability to deliver results in light of the impacts of COVID-19 and we made progress on tightly managing our cost structure.”

“We continue to believe that Pentair has a strong foundation to build upon. We have a strong purpose, mission, and vision and we believe we are in very attractive spaces and we expect to expand longer term. We continue to prioritize providing superior customer experiences and delivering more predictable and consistent results. We have a strong balance sheet to help us better navigate the current uncertain environment and we believe that Pentair will emerge an even stronger company.”

Liquidity

The company remains confident in its liquidity position. Pentair’s primary liquidity sources are operating cash flow, cash and cash equivalents, and borrowings under its revolving credit facility. As of June 30, 2020, Pentair had cash and cash equivalents of $91 million and $1.01 billion of total debt outstanding, plus the capacity to borrow an additional $764 million under its credit facility. The company has debt maturities of $74 million in 2020, $104 million in 2021, and $88 million in 2022. The company has taken measures to enhance liquidity including implementing cost savings initiatives and temporarily suspending share repurchases.

2020 Guidance Update

The company provides estimated 2020 GAAP EPS of approximately $1.70 to $1.90 and on an adjusted EPS basis of approximately $2.00 to $2.20. The company provides full year 2020 sales guidance of approximately $2.8 billion. The company is targeting full year free cash flow of greater than 100 percent of net income.
