EnPro Industries Reports Results for the First Quarter of 2013

  • Sales declined 8% as demand fell in most markets from the high levels of the first quarter of 2012 and as engine revenues declined
  • Declining volumes and lower demand for high-margin aftermarket products reduced segment profit margin to 11.1% from 13.9% in the first quarter of 2012
  • EPS of $0.39 in the first quarter compares to $0.64 in the first quarter of 2012 while adjusted EPS declined to $0.56 from $0.91
  • GST reported an 8% increase in EBITDA-A to $14.2 million on slightly lower third party sales of $56.5 million

CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- EnPro Industries (NYS: NPO) today reported sales of $286.9 million in the first quarter of 2013, about 8% below a strong first quarter of 2012, when sales were $311.5 million. Excluding the effect of an acquisition, sales declined by 12% from the first quarter of 2012, with approximately half of this decline as the result of reduced demand in most of the company's industrial markets and half as a result of an $18 million reduction in new engine revenues in the Engine Products and Services segment. Segment profit in the first quarter of 2013 was $31.9 million, a 26% decrease over the first quarter of 2012, and the segment profit margin fell to 11.1% compared to 13.9% a year ago.


The company reported net income of $8.6 million, or $0.39 a share, in the first quarter of 2013 compared to net income of $13.8 million, or $0.64 a share in the first quarter of 2012. Before selected items, including interest due to Garlock Sealing Technologies LLC (GST), a deconsolidated subsidiary, restructuring costs, and other selected items, the company's net income was $12.5 million, or $0.56 a share, compared to $19.5 million, or $0.91 a share in the first quarter of 2012.

A table attached to this press release shows the effect of selected items on net income and earnings per share in the first quarters of 2013 and 2012. All per share amounts in this release are stated on a diluted basis.

Earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and other selected items (EBITDA) were $36.2 million in the first quarter of 2013, or 12.6% as a percent of sales, compared to EBITDA of $46.5 million, or 14.9% of sales in the first quarter of 2012.

GST and its subsidiaries, which were deconsolidated effective June 5, 2010, when they entered a process to reach a permanent resolution of all current and future asbestos claims, reported third party sales of $56.5 million in the first quarter of 2013, a slight decline from the first quarter of 2012 when third party sales were $57.6 million. GST's adjusted net income, which excludes intercompany interest payments and asbestos-related expense, was $8.6 million in the first quarter of 2013 compared to $7.3 million in the first quarter of 2012.

Sales in the Sealing Products segment declined 2% from the first quarter of 2012. Excluding the effect of the Motorwheel acquisition, sales were down 10%, primarily due to lower volumes across several markets and geographies. Demand from the segment's semiconductor markets declined compared to the high levels experienced in the first quarter of 2012. Demand was also lower for aftermarket products sold into the heavy-duty truck market. In addition, prolonged winter weather in 2013 delayed sales of construction and water and waste water products in North America and Europe.

The segment's profits declined 5% from the first quarter of 2012. Excluding a benefit from the Motorwheel acquisition, profits were down 14%. Lower sales volume compared to the first quarter of 2012 was the biggest driver of the decline. Segment profits benefited from a $1.5 million reversal of an accrual associated with an acquisition completed in 2009 and from lower restructuring costs relative to the first quarter of 2012. Segment profit margin declined to 14.5% from 15.1% in the first quarter of 2012 primarily due to reduced sales of higher-margin aftermarket components, particularly at Stemco.

Engineered Products segment sales decreased by 9% compared to the first quarter of 2012, reflecting weaker demand in the segment's European and U.S. automotive, industrial and refining markets and continued weakness in its Canadian natural gas markets.

Segment profits also decreased. Although segment profits benefited from cost reductions at CPI and from price increases at both GGB and CPI, the benefits were more than offset by declining volumes and costs at GGB. Segment margins declined to 6.3% from 8.9%. Restructuring costs were about the same in the first quarter of 2013 as in the first quarter of 2012.

Sales in the Engine Products and Services segment declined by 20% from the first quarter of 2012. The decline reflects an $18.4 million decrease in engine revenues accounted for under the completed contract method, partially offset by an increase in engine revenues recorded under the percentage of completion method and stronger sales of environmental upgrade packages. No engine revenues were recorded under the completed contract method in the first quarter of 2013. Segment profits and margins declined due to lower sales volumes, a less profitable product mix as sales of environmental upgrade packages increased and a low-margin engine refurbishment project was completed, and a one-time adjustment due to a change of the accounting treatment for foreign exchange hedges.

Operating Profit $ 12.7 $ 11.6 9 %

Adjusted Net Income   $ 8.6     $ 7.3     18 %

Third party sales at the deconsolidated operations of GST and its subsidiaries were down slightly from the first quarter of 2012 reflecting a modest reduction in activity in certain foreign markets. Lower costs improved operating profits, and profit margins improved to 22.5%. GST's adjusted net income, which excludes intercompany interest income and expense associated with its asbestos claims resolution process, increased to $8.6 million. Asbestos-related expense at GST was $11.0 million in the quarter compared with $4.2 million in the first quarter of 2012.

Cash Flows

EnPro's cash balance stood at $48.5 million at March 31, 2013. For the first three months of the year, operating activities used cash of $17.8 million compared to providing cash of $3.4 million in the first three months of 2012. The change largely reflects lower operating profits as a result of weaker markets and the timing of higher pension and tax payments. Capital expenditures were $15.4 million compared to $6.4 million in the first quarter of 2012. The company believes operating cash flows will be sufficient to fund working capital and anticipated capital expenditures for the remainder of 2013.

GST finished the first three months of 2013 with cash and investments totaling $150.6 million dollars, compared with $153.6 million at the end of 2012.

Outlook

"Although we see no indication of sustained improvement, we expect seasonal growth in some markets during the second quarter," said Steve Macadam, president and chief executive officer. "These seasonal factors are likely to support an increase in sales compared to the first quarter. Profits and profit margins should improve as volumes increase and as we continue to benefit from previously implemented cost reductions and efficiency programs.

"Longer term, we remain cautious," Macadam continued. "In North America, we believe low levels of growth are likely in most of our markets during 2013. In Europe, we anticipate little if any growth as weak economic conditions persist in many of our markets. In these circumstances, we will continue to ensure that our cost structure is in line with activity levels in all markets."

Deconsolidation of Garlock Sealing Technologies LLC

Results for the first quarters 2013 and 2012 reflect the deconsolidation of Garlock Sealing Technologies LLC (GST) and its subsidiaries, effective June 5, 2010, when GST filed a voluntary petition under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code to begin a process in pursuit of an efficient and permanent resolution to all current and future asbestos claims against it. Deconsolidation is required by generally accepted accounting principles. To aid in comparisons of year-over-year data, the company has attached a schedule to this press release showing key operating measures for both EnPro and GST on a pro forma basis.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains financial measures that have not been prepared in accordance with GAAP. They include income before asbestos-related expenses and other selected items, EBITDA-A, EBITDA and related per share amounts. Tables showing the effect of these non-GAAP financial measures for first quarters of 2013 and 2012 are attached to the release.
