SPX FLOW : Builds Momentum With Strong Results In The First Half Of 2021

Aug 4, 2021

08/04/2021 | 06:31am EDT Message : *Required fields CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- SPX FLOW, Inc. (NYSE:FLOW), a leading provider of process solutions for the nutrition, health and precision solutions markets, today reported results for the quarter ended July 3, 2021. "Our strong first half results demonstrate significant progress in the strategic plan the Company outlined at the start of 2021. We are demonstrating the ability to deliver organic growth, meaningful margin expansion, and strong free cash flow," said Marc Michael, SPX FLOW President and CEO. "The strategic assessments we conducted over the past two years created clarity on the products, services and markets that allow us to grow profitably with our customers. And the deployment of 80/20 and our business operating system has supported our strong execution of this strategy, evidenced by growth in our highest margin product categories, investment in new product development and CAPEX, and outstanding progress on our SG&A productivity plans. By instilling the 80/20 mindset company-wide, we see sustainable margin expansion and increased free cash flow over the coming years. "  "We are also executing on our commitment to systematically allocate capital within our balanced and disciplined framework," Michael said. "We have increased investments in high returning CAPEX projects, R&D programs and customer innovation. We closed two acquisitions this year that are great strategic fits and enhance our ability to create profitable growth. We are also returning capital to shareholders through our share repurchase program and dividend." "We are proud of the outcomes our solutions makers have delivered through the first half of 2021, and confident we are building the capabilities and culture to deliver on our long-term commitments. The momentum we are seeing in our operating performance is a testament to strong teams, customer focus, high quality offerings and strategic clarity. We are focused on creating value for shareholders through earnings growth, reinvesting in the business, executing strategic acquisitions and distributing excess cash to our shareholders." concluded Michael. Outlook: The company anticipates mid-single digit organic revenue growth in 2021 with meaningful improvement in operating margins continuing in the second half of the year. The long-term strategy is to generate higher organic growth driven by 80/20 segmentation, with improved quality and mix of revenue, supported by a lean and dynamic cost structure. These building blocks, together with continuous manufacturing and supply chain productivity, are leading to an accelerated shift in fundamental performance of the Company. Second Quarter 2021 Consolidated Results (continuing operations unless otherwise noted) $ millions 49.5 32.7 Note: The commentary below is compared to the prior-year period. All comments refer to continuing operations unless otherwise noted. During the quarter ended July 3, 2021, we renamed our Industrial segment as the Precision Solutions segment, with no changes to the composition of the segment. Backlog was up 11.4%, or $62.2 million primarily due to the positive impact of foreign exchange rates and the impact of current period acquisitions. Organically, backlog decreased 4.8%  in the Nutrition & Health segment, partially offset by a slight increase of  1.4% in the Precision Solutions segment. Orders increased 15.5% organically, or $49.7 million, driven by a 7.4% increase in Nutrition & Health segment orders and a 22.8% increase in Precision Solutions segment orders. Revenues increased 23.9%, or $73.5 million driven by an 14.1% increase in organic revenues, with 10.5% organic growth in the Nutrition & Health segment and 17.3% organic growth in the Precision Solutions segment. Operating income was $28.9 million, or 7.6% of revenues. After excluding discrete, non-operational and non-cash items and reclassifying transitional services income, adjusted operating income* was $42.7 million, or 11.2% of revenues, representing an increase of approximately 260 basis points year-over-year on a comparable basis. Segment income was $50.0 million, up 28.2%, and segment margin increased by 40 basis points to 13.1%. The increase in segment income was primarily driven by operating leverage related to meaningful volume recovery across both segments, price realization and structural SG&A cost savings and was only partially offset by increased intangible amortization charges and the impact of fair value adjustments to inventory directly attributable to the company's acquisition strategy. Adjusted free cash flow* from continuing operations was $30.7 million, including investments of $5.1 million on capital expenditures and excluding $4.8 million on restructuring actions and $2.4 million on certain M&A activities. Nutrition & Health segment revenues increased 16.3% primarily driven by a 10.5% increase in organic revenues related to a higher shippable backlog entering the quarter and elevated short cycle book and turn activity. Segment income was $26.4 million, up 38.2%, and margin increased by 250 basis points to 15.7%. The increase in segment income was primarily driven by an improved mix of higher quality revenue, pricing and SG&A cost reductions. Precision Solutions segment revenues increased 30.5%, primarily driven by a 17.3% increase in organic revenues related to a higher shippable backlog to start the quarter and volume recovery in short cycle end markets. Segment income was $23.6 million, up 18.6% and margin decreased by 110 basis points to 11.1%. The increase in segment income was primarily driven by increased price realization, operating leverage related to meaningful volume recovery and SG&A cost reductions and was partially offset by increased intangible amortization charges and the impact of fair value adjustments to inventory directly attributable to the company's acquisition strategy.
