Ingersoll-Rand plc (NYSE:IR), a world leader in creating and sustaining safe, comfortable and efficient environments, today reported diluted earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations of $1.03 for the second quarter of 2013.
The company reported net earnings of $317.2 million, or EPS of $1.05, for the second quarter of 2013. Second-quarter net earnings included $311.6 million, or EPS of $1.03, from continuing operations, as well as $5.6 million, or EPS of $0.02 of income from discontinued operations. This compares with net earnings of $365.8 million, or EPS of $1.16, for the 2012 second quarter.
Results for the second quarter of 2013 included $31 million, or $0.11 per share, of restructuring and one-time charges related to the spinoff of the security business. The prior year’s quarter included $14 million of restructuring and one-time costs equal to $0.04 per share. Before these items, 2013 adjusted EPS from continuing operations was $1.14.
“We delivered revenue growth and earnings above our commitment in the second quarter with solid operational execution across the company,” said Michael W. Lamach, chairman and chief executive officer. “At the same time, we completed critical milestones related to the security business spinoff and concluded a successful debt offering that improved our liquidity and reduced our future interest costs. The quarter demonstrated our continued ability to successfully navigate challenging market environments and deliver operating leverage while still making strategic investments to support the company’s long-term growth strategy.”
Additional Highlights from the 2013 Second Quarter
Revenues: The company’s reported revenues increased by 3 percent to $3,933 million, compared with revenues of $3,821 million for the 2012 second quarter. Total U.S. revenues were up by 4 percent compared to 2012, and revenues from international operations increased by 1 percent.
Operating Margin: The second-quarter operating margin was 12.3 percent compared with 12.5 percent in 2012. Adjusted for restructuring and one-time items, the operating margin for the second quarter of 2013 was 13.0 percent, up by 20 basis points compared with the adjusted margin for the second quarter of 2012 of 12.8 percent. The year-over-year margin improvement was due to increased volume, productivity initiatives and improved pricing, which was partially offset by inflation and an increase in investment spending.
Interest Expense and Other Income/Expense: Interest expense of $62.4 million for the second quarter of 2013 was essentially flat compared with the same period last year. Other expense totaled $(1.7) million for the second quarter of 2013, compared with $4.1 million of income for the 2012 second quarter. The year-over-year change was due to higher currency losses.
Taxes: The company had an effective tax rate of 24 percent in the second quarter of 2013. The effective rate for the second quarter of 2012 was 13 percent. During the second quarter of 2012, the company recorded a discrete tax benefit of $47 million, primarily related to a tax law change in a non-U.S. jurisdiction.
Second-Quarter Business Review
Climate Solutions delivers energy-efficient solutions globally and includes Trane, which provides heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and commercial building services, parts, support and controls; and Thermo King, the leader in transport temperature control solutions. Revenues for the second quarter of 2013 were $2,058 million and increased by 5 percent compared with the second quarter of 2012. Bookings increased by 4 percent year-over-year.
On a year-over-year basis, total commercial HVAC revenues increased by a low-single digit percentage with a mid-single digit percentage increase in equipment revenues partially offset by a slight decline in revenues in parts, service and solutions. Commercial HVAC revenues increased slightly in the Americas and increased by a low-teens percentage in both Europe and Asia during the quarter compared with last year. Second-quarter 2013 HVAC bookings reflect a slight increase compared with last year.
Total Thermo King refrigerated transport revenues increased by an upper-single digit percentage in the second quarter compared with last year with revenue gains in the Americas and in Europe. Bookings increased by a mid-teens percentage in the second quarter of 2013, primarily due to a 20 percent year-over-year increase in Americas orders.
Second-quarter 2013 segment operating margin was 13.2 percent (13.4 percent adjusted margin), compared with 12.1 percent (12.5 percent adjusted margin) last year. The year-over-year 90 basis point adjusted margin improvement was due to higher volumes, pricing and productivity actions, partially offset by inflation and higher investment spending.
Industrial Technologies provides products, services and solutions to enhance customers’ productivity, energy efficiency and operations. Products include compressed air systems, tools, fluid power products, and golf and utility vehicles. Total revenues in the second quarter of $763 million declined by 3 percent compared with the second quarter of 2012. Bookings declined slightly compared with 2012. Air and productivity revenues declined by a mid-single digit percentage, as volumes decreased in all geographic regions.
Club Car revenues increased by a mid-single digit percentage compared with the second quarter of 2012, with gains in both golf car and utility vehicle sales.
Second-quarter segment operating margin for Industrial Technologies was 16.0 percent (16.3 percent adjusted margin). Adjusted margins decreased by one percentage point year-over-year as the benefits from improved pricing and productivity were more than offset by the impact of lower volumes and inflation.
Residential Solutions includes the Trane and Schlage brands, which deliver safety, comfort and efficiency to homeowners throughout the Americas. Products, services and solutions include mechanical and electronic locks, HVAC systems, indoor air quality solutions, and controls and remote home management systems. Second-quarter 2013 revenues were $713 million, an increase of 9 percent compared with 2012. Second-quarter 2013 results included approximately $17 million of revenues from a product line transferred from the Security Technologies segment. Adjusting for the product line transfer, second-quarter revenues increased by 7 percent on a comparable basis with 2012. Second-quarter 2013 bookings decreased by a mid-single digit percentage on a comparable basis with 2012.
Total residential security revenues were up by a low-teens percentage on a comparable basis with 2012 as a result of improved sales to the new builder market in the United States and from increased sales to South American customers. Residential HVAC revenues increased by a mid-single digit percentage compared with the second quarter of 2012 with volume gains in all major product categories.
Second-quarter 2013 segment operating margin was 11.2 percent (11.2 percent adjusted margin), an increase of 3.3 percentage points when compared with a 7.9 percent margin (7.9 percent adjusted margin) recorded in 2012. The segment margin increase was due to higher volumes, pricing and productivity gains, which were partly offset by negative mix and inflation.
Security Technologies is a leading global supplier of commercial security products and services. The segment’s market-leading products include mechanical and electronic security solutions, biometric and access-control systems, and security and time and attendance scheduling software.
Second-quarter revenues of $399 million decreased by approximately 3 percent (up by 3 percent on a comparable basis, adjusting for the product line transferred to the Residential Solutions segment) compared with the second quarter of 2012. Revenues in the Americas were up mid-single digit percentages. Revenues in overseas markets declined by a low-single digit percentage primarily due to declines in Europe. Second-quarter 2013 bookings increased by a low-single digit percentage on a comparable basis with last year, mainly due to gains in the Americas and Asia.
Second-quarter segment operating margin was 21.6 percent (21.6 percent adjusted) compared with 20.0 percent (21.1 percent adjusted) in the second quarter of 2012. The higher adjusted segment operating margin was due to increased volume, higher productivity, favorable revenue mix and improved pricing, which were partially offset by inflation and increased investments.
Balance Sheet and Completion of Debt Offering
At the end of the second quarter, working capital was 3.5 percent of revenues, compared with 3.3 percent in 2012. Cash balances and total debt balances were $2.2 billion and $4.8 billion, respectively. Both cash and total debt balances were reduced by approximately $1.3 billion on July 17, when the early redemption of the 2013 and 2014 senior notes was completed.
On June 17 the company completed a $1.55 billion debt offering. The company redeployed the net proceeds from the offering to fund the redemption of $600 million of Senior Notes due in 2013 and $655 million of Senior Notes due in 2014, and to fund expenses related to the spinoff of the Allegion security businesses. The redemption premium expense for the early retirement of these notes will approximate $46 million and will reduce third-quarter and full-year earnings by approximately $0.15 per share. Additionally, the lower interest costs for the new debt will reduce the future annualized total interest expense by approximately $30 million.
During the second quarter, the company repurchased approximately 9 million shares for approximately $480 million as part of a $2 billion program approved by the board of directors in December 2012. The company expects to complete this repurchase program by the end of the first quarter of 2014.
Spinoff of Commercial and Residential Security Businesses
On December 10, 2012, the company announced that its board of directors unanimously approved a plan to spin off its commercial and residential security businesses. The company expects the spinoff, which is intended to be tax free to shareholders, to be completed prior to year-end 2013. The new security company is an Irish plc named Allegion. Allegion will trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker ALLE.
For comparison purposes, the 2013 forecast is based on the current Ingersoll Rand business structure, with four current operating sectors in place for the full 12 months of 2013. Based on expected market activity for the remainder of the year, the company expects revenues for the full-year 2013 to be in the range of $14.2 billion to $14.4 billion with full-year adjusted EPS from continuing operations expected to be in the range of $3.50 to $3.60. Costs related to the proposed spinoff of the Allegion security businesses and restructuring expenses are expected to be in the range of $0.50 to $0.60 per share and additional costs from the early retirement of debt will reduce EPS by $0.15 per share. Including these costs, EPS for 2013 continuing operations are expected to be in the range of $2.75 to $2.95. The forecast includes an ongoing tax rate of 23 percent for continuing operations and an average diluted share count for the full year of approximately 298 million shares. Available cash flow for full-year 2013 is expected to approximate $1.1 billion, excluding the debt retirement costs, restructuring expenses and costs related to the spinoff of the security business.
Third-quarter 2013 revenues are expected to be in the range of $3.65 billion to $3.75 billion. Adjusted EPS from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2013 are expected to be in the range of $1.07 to $1.12, with reported EPS of $0.82 to $0.87 including security business spinoff and restructuring costs equal to approximately $0.10 per share and costs related to the early retirement of debt equal to $0.15 per share. The third-quarter forecast reflects an ongoing tax rate of 23 percent for continuing operations and an average diluted share count of approximately 295 million shares.
