Second Quarter 2013 Results and Increase in Dividend Reported by Amphenol Corporation

WALLINGFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Amphenol Corporation (NYSE-APH) reported today second quarter 2013 diluted earnings per share of $.95 compared to $.86 per share for the comparable 2012 period. Sales for the second quarter 2013 were $1.136 billion compared to $1.061 billion for the 2012 period. Currency translation had the effect of increasing sales by approximately $2.1 million in the second quarter 2013 compared to the 2012 period.

For the six months ended June 30, 2013 diluted earnings per share was $1.89 on an as reported basis and $1.82 excluding a one-time tax benefit compared to $1.63 for the comparable 2012 period. The 2013 period includes an income tax benefit of $11 million, or $.07 per share, resulting from the delay, by the U. S. government, in the reinstatement of certain federal income tax provisions for the year 2012 relating primarily to research and development credits and certain U.S. taxes on foreign income. Such tax provisions were reinstated on January 2, 2013 with retroactive effect to 2012. Under U.S. GAAP, the related benefit to the Company of $11 million, or $.07 per share, relating to the 2012 tax year was recorded as a one-time benefit in the first quarter of 2013 at the date of reinstatement. Sales for the six months ended June 30, 2013 were $2.216 billion compared to $2.043 billion for the 2012 period. Currency translation had no significant effect on sales for the six month 2013 period compared to the 2012 period.


In addition, the Company's Board of Directors has approved an increase in the quarterly dividend from $.105 per share to $.20 per share to be paid on or about October 2, 2013 to holders of record of the Company's Class A Common stock as of September 11, 2013.

Amphenol President and Chief Executive Officer, R. Adam Norwitt, stated "We are pleased to report strong second quarter sales up 7% over the comparable 2012 quarter and 5% sequentially. The sales growth over last year was driven by increases in nearly all of our served markets led by the commercial aerospace, automotive, mobile networks and broadband markets with contributions from both organic growth and our acquisition program. Sequentially, we grew in the information technology and data communications, mobile networks, broadband, industrial and automotive markets, but experienced modest sequential declines in the mobile device and defense markets. Our strong growth is further confirmation of the significant benefits of the Company's technology leadership and diversification. We are encouraged to have achieved orders of $1.177 billion in the second quarter, representing a book-to-bill of 1.04 to 1. In addition, it is extremely rewarding that the Company's unique entrepreneurial culture continues to drive an unwavering focus on profitability, resulting in an operating margin improvement of 30 basis points over the prior year quarter to 19.7%, driving strong 10% EPS growth and record EPS of $.95 in the quarter. These results are a direct result of our management team's ability to react quickly in a dynamic environment, especially given the continuing high levels of uncertainty in most of the world's economies. I am very proud of our organization as we continue to execute well."

"Our ongoing strategy of market and geographic diversification combined with our strong commitment to developing enabling technologies for our customers in all markets, both through organic product development and through our acquisition program, continues to expand the Company's growth opportunities. Consistent with that strategy, at the end of the second quarter, the Company completed the acquisition of DC Electronics, a U.S. manufacturer of value-add interconnect products for a broad range of harsh environment industrial applications with annual sales of approximately $40 million. This acquisition expands the Company's presence in a very important and growing technology area. In addition to our successful acquisition program, the Company continues to deploy its financial strength in a variety of ways to increase shareholder value including, in this quarter, the purchase of 1.2 million shares of the Company's stock pursuant to our stock repurchase plan and an increase in the quarterly dividend from $.105 per share to $.20 per share."

"There is still a great deal of market uncertainty in the global economy and, in particular, increasing levels of volatility in the mobile device market. Accordingly, and assuming current currency exchange rates, we expect third quarter 2013 revenues in the range of $1.120 billion to $1.145 billion and diluted EPS in the range of $.95 to $.98. For the year 2013, we now expect to achieve revenues and diluted EPS in the range of $4.490 billion to $4.540 billion and $3.73 to $3.79 (excluding one-time items), respectively, an increase of 5% to 6% over 2012 revenues and 7% to 9% over 2012 diluted EPS (excluding one-time items). This compares to prior full year 2013 guidance for revenues and diluted EPS in the range of $4.580 billion to $4.655 billion and $3.76 to $3.85 (excluding one-time items), respectively. Despite the many 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 leading interconnect technologies in all of our end markets. This creates a significant, long-term growth opportunity for Amphenol.Importantly, our ongoing actions to enhance our competitive advantages and build sustained financial strength have created a solid base for future performance. I amconfident 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."
