CIRCOR Reports First-Quarter 2015 Financial Results

BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 28, 2015-- CIRCOR International, Inc. (NYSE: CIR), a leading provider of valves and other highly engineered products for markets including oil & gas, power generation and aerospace & defense, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended April 5, 2015.

First-Quarter 2015 Highlights

  • Orders of $182 million with solid bookings for large international projects
  • Q1 revenue of $165.9 million and adjusted EPS of $0.60
  • Repurchased 302,000 shares of common stock for $16.7 million
  • Restructuring actions remain on track; announcing additional restructuring program
  • Announced acquisition of Schroedahl

“Our first-quarter revenues were in line with expectations overall at $166 million with adjusted EPS of $0.60 despite significant headwind from currencies,” said Scott Buckhout, President and Chief Executive Officer. “In our Energy segment, strong orders in our long-cycle large international projects business offset weaker orders in our short-cycle distributed valves business. Aerospace & Defense orders came in as expected. After adjusting for divestitures and currency, organic orders grew 9%.”

On April 16, the Company announced the acquisition of Germany-based Schroedahl, a manufacturer of automatic recirculation safety valves, primarily for the higher-growth power generation market in Asia. This acquisition is expected to be accretive to earnings per share in the first year. Additional details on the transaction will be provided during the conference call later today.

“We remain focused on enhancing shareholder value. During the quarter, we repurchased more than 302,000 shares under our previously announced share repurchase program. Our growth initiatives and restructuring actions remain on track. In addition, we are announcing another restructuring program expected to deliver $5.0 million of annualized savings. Going forward, we will continue to drive cost reduction, expand margins and focus on what we can control as we manage through this cycle,” concluded Buckhout.

Second-Quarter 2015 Guidance
For the second quarter of 2015, the Company will provide its guidance during the conference call later today.
