CLEVELAND, May 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE: PH), the global leader in motion and control technologies, today reported results for the fiscal 2019 third quarter ended March 31, 2019.  Fiscal 2019 third quarter sales were $3.69 billion compared with $3.75 billion in the prior year quarter.  Organic growth of 2% was more than offset by currency translation and a divestiture in fiscal year 2018.  Net income increased 12% to an all-time quarterly record of $411.2 million compared with $366.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018.  Fiscal 2019 third quarter earnings per share increased 16% to $3.14, compared with $2.70 in the prior year quarter.  Adjusted earnings per share were $3.17, compared with adjusted earnings per share of $2.80 in the prior year quarter.  Cash flow from operations for the first nine months of fiscal 2019 was $1,092.6 million or 10.3% of sales, compared with $901.2 million or 8.6% of sales in the prior year period.  Excluding a discretionary pension contribution in fiscal 2019, cash flow from operations for the first nine months of fiscal 2019 was 12.1% of sales.  A reconciliation of non-GAAP measures is included in the financial tables of this press release.

“We delivered strong operational performance in the third quarter, achieving all-time quarterly records for total segment operating margin and earnings, and strong year-to-date cash flow from operations,”  said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Tom Williams.  “We eclipsed total segment operating margin of 17% for the first time in a quarter.  I am especially pleased that our Aerospace business achieved an all-time record for segment operating margin of 20.7%.  While order entry has moderated for the Diversified Industrial Segment against strong comparisons in the prior year quarter, we are confident in our ability to continue executing well and reaching another record year in fiscal 2019.”

Segment Results
Diversified Industrial Segment:  North American third quarter sales decreased 1% to $1.8 billion, and operating income increased 2% to $287.5 million compared with $280.7 million in the same period a year ago.  International third quarter sales decreased 8% to $1.3 billion, impacted primarily by unfavorable currency translation, while operating income increased 2% to $208.7 million compared with $205.3 million in the same period a year ago.

Aerospace Systems Segment:  Third quarter sales increased 9% to $652.1 million, and operating income increased 26% to $134.8 million compared with $106.7 million in the same period a year ago.

Parker reported the following orders for the quarter ending March 31, 2019, compared with the same quarter a year ago:

  • Orders decreased 4% for total Parker
  • Orders decreased 6% in the Diversified Industrial North America businesses
  • Orders decreased 4% in the Diversified Industrial International businesses
  • Orders increased 2% in the Aerospace Systems Segment on a rolling 12-month average basis

For the fiscal year ending June 30, 2019, the company has maintained guidance for earnings from continuing operations in the range of $11.17 to $11.47 per share, or $11.45 to $11.75 per share on an adjusted basis.  Fiscal year 2019 guidance is adjusted on a pre-tax basis for expected business realignment expenses of approximately $16 million and CLARCOR costs to achieve of approximately $14 million and an income tax expense adjustment of $14 million related to U.S. Tax Reform.  Guidance assumes organic sales growth in the range of 2.0% to 3.0%.  A reconciliation of forecasted earnings per share to adjusted forecasted earnings per share is included in the financial tables of this press release.

Williams added, “Parker continues to operate exceptionally well, with strong execution from Parker team members globally.  We remain on track to achieve our fiscal 2023 financial targets through our ongoing focus on driving The Win Strategy™”

Note on Orders
Orders provide near-term perspective on the company's outlook, particularly when viewed in the context of prior and future quarterly order rates. However, orders are not in themselves an indication of future performance. All comparisons are at constant currency exchange rates, with the prior year restated to the current-year rates. All exclude acquisitions until they can be reflected in both the numerator and denominator. Aerospace comparisons are rolling 12-month average computations. The total Parker orders number is derived from a weighted average of the year-over-year quarterly % change in orders for Diversified Industrial North America and Diversified Industrial International, and the year-over-year 12-month rolling average of orders for the Aerospace Systems Segment.    

Note on Net Income
Net Income referenced in this press release is equal to net income attributable to common shareholders. 

Note on Non-GAAP Numbers
This press release contains references to (a) earnings per share without the effect of business realignment charges, CLARCOR costs to achieve, loss on sale and writedown of assets, net and U.S. Tax Reform one-time impact, net, (b) segment operating margins without the effect of business realignment charges and CLARCOR costs to achieve; (c) the effect of business realignment charges, CLARCOR costs to achieve and U.S. Tax Reform income tax expense adjustment on forecasted earnings from continuing operations per share; (d) and cash flows from operations without the effect of discretionary pension contributions. The effects of business realignment charges, CLARCOR costs to achieve, loss on sale and writedown of asset, net, U.S. Tax Reform one-time impact, net and discretionary pension contributions are removed to allow investors and the company to meaningfully evaluate changes in earnings per share, segment operating margins and cash flows from operations on a comparable basis from period to period. This press release also contains references to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA before business realignment charges, CLARCOR costs to achieve, and loss on sale and writedown of assets, net. Although EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of performance calculated in accordance with GAAP, we believe that they are useful to an investor in evaluating the results of this quarter versus the prior period.

Forward-Looking Statements
Forward-looking statements contained in this and other written and oral reports are made based on known events and circumstances at the time of release, and as such, are subject in the future to unforeseen uncertainties and risks. These statements may be identified from the use of forward-looking terminology such as “anticipates,” “believes,” “may,” “should,” “could,” “potential,” “continues,” “plans,” “forecasts,” “estimates,” “projects,” “predicts,” “would,” “intends,” “anticipates,” “expects,” “targets,” “is likely,” “will,” or the negative of these terms and similar expressions, and include all statements regarding future performance, earnings projections, events or developments.  Parker cautions readers not to place undue reliance on these statements. It is possible that the future performance and earnings projections of the company, including its individual segments, may differ materially from current expectations, depending on economic conditions within its mobile, industrial and aerospace markets, and the company's ability to maintain and achieve anticipated benefits associated with announced realignment activities, strategic initiatives to improve operating margins, actions taken to combat the effects of the current economic environment, and growth, innovation and global diversification initiatives. Additionally, the actual impact of the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on future performance and earnings projections may change based on subsequent judicial or regulatory interpretations of the Act that impact the company’s tax calculations. A change in the economic conditions in individual markets may have a particularly volatile effect on segment performance.

The risks and uncertainties in connection with forward-looking statements related to the proposed transaction between LORD Corporation and the company include, but are not limited to, the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could delay the closing of the proposed transaction; the possibility of non-consummation of the proposed transaction and termination of the merger agreement; the failure to satisfy any of the conditions to the proposed transaction set forth in the merger agreement; the possibility that a governmental entity may prohibit the consummation of the proposed transaction or may delay or refuse to grant a necessary regulatory approval in connection with the proposed transaction, or that in order for the parties to obtain any such regulatory approvals, conditions are imposed that adversely affect the anticipated benefits from the proposed transaction or cause the parties to abandon the proposed transaction; adverse effects on Parker’s common stock because of the failure to complete the proposed transaction; Parker’s business experiencing disruptions due to transaction-related uncertainty or other factors making it more difficult to maintain relationships with employees, business partners or governmental entities; the possibility that the expected synergies and value creation from the proposed transaction will not be realized or will not be realized within the expected time period; the parties being unable to successfully implement integration strategies; and significant transaction costs related to the proposed transaction.

Among other factors which may affect future performance are: changes in business relationships with and purchases by or from major customers, suppliers or distributors, including delays or cancellations in shipments; disputes regarding contract terms or significant changes in financial condition, changes in contract cost and revenue estimates for new development programs and changes in product mix; ability to identify acceptable strategic acquisition targets; uncertainties surrounding timing, successful completion or integration of acquisitions and similar transactions, including the integration of CLARCOR; the ability to successfully divest businesses planned for divestiture and realize the anticipated benefits of such divestitures; the determination to undertake business realignment activities and the expected costs thereof and, if undertaken, the ability to complete such activities and realize the anticipated cost savings from such activities; ability to implement successfully capital allocation initiatives, including timing, price and execution of share repurchases; availability, limitations or cost increases of raw materials, component products and/or commodities that cannot be recovered in product pricing; ability to manage costs related to insurance and employee retirement and health care benefits; compliance costs associated with environmental laws and regulations; potential labor disruptions; threats associated with and efforts to combat terrorism and cyber-security risks; uncertainties surrounding the ultimate resolution of outstanding legal proceedings, including the outcome of any appeals; global competitive market conditions, including global reactions to U.S. trade policies, and resulting effects on sales and pricing; and global economic factors, including manufacturing activity, air travel trends, currency exchange rates, difficulties entering new markets and general economic conditions such as inflation, deflation, interest rates and credit availability. The company makes these statements as of the date of this disclosure and undertakes no obligation to update them unless otherwise required by law.
