The Company’s Board of Directors has approved an increase in the quarterly dividend from $.20 to $.25 per share to be paid on or about October 1, 2014 to holders of record of the Company’s Class A Common stock as of September 10, 2014.
Amphenol President and Chief Executive Officer, R. Adam Norwitt, stated, “For the second quarter 2014, we are pleased to report new records in both sales and EPS of $1.314 billion and $1.09, up 16% and 15%, respectively, over the comparable 2013 quarter. The Company achieved strong year-over-year growth in most of our end markets, including the automotive, commercial air, industrial and mobile networks markets. This growth was driven both organically and through the Company’s successful acquisition program. In addition, sales grew 5% sequentially supported by growth in all of the Company’s markets. Our ongoing strategy of market and geographic diversification combined with our strong commitment to developing enabling technologies for our customers in all markets, as well as our acquisition program, continue to expand the Company’s growth opportunities.”
“In addition, it is extremely rewarding that the Company’s unique entrepreneurial culture continues to drive an unwavering focus on profitability, resulting in a 70 basis point sequential increase in operating margin over the first quarter 2014 to 19.5% in the second quarter 2014. This performance is a direct result of our outstanding management team’s ability to drive incremental operating margins through focused operational execution and an unrelenting focus on all elements of cost. I am very proud of our organization as we continue to execute well.”
“The Company achieved strong operating cash flow in the quarter of $181 million. The Company continues to deploy its financial strength in a variety of ways to increase shareholder value, including the purchase, during the quarter, of 1.4 million shares of the Company’s stock pursuant to our stock repurchase plan and a 25% increase in the quarterly dividend from $.20 to $.25 per share.”
“Assuming stable economic conditions and constant currency exchange rates, we expect third quarter 2014 revenues in the range of $1.320 billion to $1.350 billion and diluted EPS in the range of $1.12 to $1.15. For the year 2014, we are increasing our expectations for revenues and diluted EPS and now expect to achieve revenues in the range of $5.210 billion to $5.270 billion, an increase of 13% to 14% over 2013 and diluted EPS of $4.35 to $4.41 (excluding one-time items), an increase of 13% to 15% over 2013. While there remain uncertainties in the global economy, we believe we can perform well in the dynamic electronics marketplace due to our leading technology, increasing positions with our customers in diverse markets, worldwide presence, lean cost structure, and agile, experienced and entrepreneurial management team.”
“The electronics revolution continues to accelerate, with new applications and higher performance requirements driving increased demand for our high technology products across all of our end markets. This creates a significant, long-term growth opportunity for Amphenol. Our ongoing actions to enhance our competitive advantages and build sustained financial strength have created a solid base for future performance. I am confident in the ability of our outstanding management team to dynamically adjust to the constantly changing market environment, to continue to generate strong profitability and to further capitalize on the many opportunities to expand our market position.”
