AMETEK Announces Record Second Quarter 2014 Results and Raises Full Year Guidance

BERWYN, Pa., Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AMETEK, Inc. (NYSE: AME) today announced second quarter results that established records for orders, sales, operating income, operating margins, net income and diluted earnings per share.  In addition, backlog at June 30, 2014 of $1.25 billion was an all-time high.   

AMETEK's second quarter 2014 sales of $990.7 million were up 13% over the same period of 2013.  Operating income for the second quarter of 2014 was $231.7 million, a 14% increase from the $202.6 million recorded in the same period of 2013.  Operating margins improved 30 basis points to 23.4%.  Net income increased 17% to $150.1 million, from $128.3 million in last year's second quarter.  Diluted earnings per share increased 17% to $0.61 per diluted share from the second quarter 2013 level of $0.52 per diluted share.    

"AMETEK achieved excellent results in the second quarter, delivering record operating performance.  Strong organic growth, Operational Excellence initiatives, and contributions from acquired businesses allowed us to exceed our second quarter earnings expectations and raise our 2014 earnings guidance.  In addition, we closed the acquisition of Zygo in the quarter," noted Frank S. Hermance, AMETEK Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

"Cash flow was also very strong, with operating cash flow totaling $155.1 million for the quarter, an increase of 21% over the same period of 2013," continued Mr. Hermance.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, AMETEK sales increased 12% to $1.97 billion from $1.76 billion in the same period of 2013.  Operating income increased 13% to $453.4 million, from $399.8 million earned in the first six months of 2013.  Net income for the first six months of 2014 was $290.6 million, up 15% from $253.5 million in the same period of 2013.  Diluted earnings per share were $1.18 for the first six months of 2014, up 15% from $1.03 per diluted share in the first six months of 2013. 

Electronic Instruments Group (EIG)

For the second quarter of 2014, EIG sales increased 19% to $573.3 million.  Operating income was $151.5 million in the quarter, compared with $129.6 million in the second quarter of 2013, a 17% increase.  Operating margins for the quarter were very strong at 26.4%.    

"EIG had an excellent second quarter.  Strong core growth in our Aerospace, Process, and Power & Industrial businesses combined with the contributions from recent acquisitions drove the strong overall sales growth," said Mr. Hermance.

Electromechanical Group (EMG)

In the second quarter of 2014, EMG sales increased 6% to $417.4 million.  Operating income in the second quarter was up 10% to $92.1 million, compared with $83.4 million in the same period of 2013.  Operating margins were a record 22.1% in the second quarter of 2014, up 100 basis points from last year's second quarter.  

"EMG also had a great second quarter with strong sales growth and excellent operating performance.  Operating margins were up nicely driven by the higher sales and our Operational Excellence initiatives," commented Mr. Hermance.

2014 Outlook

"We are very pleased with our strong performance in the second quarter.  We are increasing our earnings guidance for the full year to reflect these strong results, the benefit of the Zygo acquisition and our expectations for the balance of the year," notes Mr. Hermance.

"We now anticipate 2014 revenue to be up low double digits on a percentage basis from 2013 reflecting solid core growth and the contributions from recent acquisitions.  Earnings for 2014 are now expected to be in the range of $2.37 to $2.42 per diluted share, up 13% to 15% over 2013, excluding one-time Zygo integration costs.  This earnings guidance is an increase from our previous guidance of $2.32 to $2.37 per diluted share that was provided in our first quarter earnings release," added Mr. Hermance.

"Third quarter sales are expected to be up mid-teens on a percentage basis over last year's third quarter.  We estimate our earnings to be approximately $0.59 to $0.61 per diluted share, excluding the one-time Zygo integration costs.  This earnings guidance represents an increase of 13% to 17% over last year's third quarter of $0.52 per diluted share," concluded Mr. Hermance.
