Third Quarter 2019 Results Reported by Amphenol Corporation

WALLINGFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 23, 2019-- Amphenol Corporation (NYSE: APH) reported today GAAP diluted Earnings Per Share (“EPS”) for the third quarter 2019 of $0.92 compared to $1.01 for the comparable 2018 period. GAAP diluted EPS for the third quarter 2019 included refinancing-related costs of approximately $14 million ($0.04 per share) associated with the early extinguishment of debt during the quarter, partially offset by an excess tax benefit of approximately $2 million ($0.01 per share) related to stock options exercised during the quarter. Third quarter 2018 GAAP diluted EPS included an excess tax benefit of approximately $7 million ($0.02 per share) related to stock options exercised during the quarter. Excluding the effect of these items, Adjusted Diluted EPS1 for the third quarter 2019 was $0.95 compared to $0.99 for the third quarter 2018.

Sales for the third quarter 2019 were $2.101 billion compared to $2.129 billion for the comparable 2018 period. Currency translation had the effect of decreasing sales by approximately $24 million in the third quarter 2019 compared to the 2018 period.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, GAAP Diluted EPS was $2.72, compared to $2.76 for the comparable 2018 period. GAAP Diluted EPS for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, included acquisition-related costs of approximately $25 million ($0.07 per share) and refinancing-related costs associated with the early extinguishment of debt during the period of approximately $14 million ($0.04 per share), partially offset by an excess tax benefit of approximately $21 million ($0.07 per share) related to stock options exercised during the period. The comparable 2018 period included an excess tax benefit of approximately $14 million ($0.04 per share) related to stock options exercised during the period. Excluding the effect of these items, Adjusted Diluted EPS for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018 was $2.76 and $2.72, respectively.

Sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 were $6.074 billion compared to $5.977 billion for the 2018 period. Currency translation had the effect of decreasing sales by approximately $112 million for the first nine months of 2019 compared to the 2018 period.

Amphenol President and Chief Executive Officer, R. Adam Norwitt, stated, “We are pleased to close the third quarter 2019 with both sales and Adjusted Diluted EPS exceeding the high end of our guidance, reaching $2.101 billion and $0.95, respectively. Compared to the third quarter 2018, sales decreased 1% as a result of moderations in the industrial, automotive and communications-related markets, offset in part by strong growth in the military and commercial air markets as well as contributions from the Company’s acquisition program. We are proud that the Company continues to execute well amidst a very uncertain environment, with Adjusted Operating Margins of 19.7% in the third quarter.”

“The Company continues to expand its growth opportunities through a deep commitment to developing enabling technologies for customers in all markets, an ongoing strategy of market and geographic diversification and an active and successful acquisition program. As part of that program, we are excited to have recently closed two new acquisitions, which collectively generate annual sales of approximately $60 million. In the last several weeks, the Company acquired XGiga Communication Technology Co., Ltd. (“XGiga”) as well as Cablescan Limited (“Cablescan”). Based in China, XGiga designs and manufactures active fiber optic interconnect components used primarily in the communications infrastructure markets. Based in the United Kingdom, Cablescan designs and manufactures high-technology interconnect assemblies for the military and commercial aerospace markets. These two acquisitions are highly complementary to the Company’s existing global capabilities and enhance our product offerings across these end markets, while bringing two strong management teams into the Amphenol family.”

“Operating cash flow in the quarter was a very strong $412 million, another confirmation of the quality of the Company’s earnings. The Company continues to deploy its financial strength in a variety of ways to increase shareholder value. To that end, the Company purchased 1.7 million shares of its common stock during the quarter for approximately $150 million and paid dividends of approximately $68 million.”

“As we look ahead, the overall demand environment continues to reflect a heightened level of uncertainty in the global economy. Given the current demand environment, together with contributions from the acquisitions just completed, we expect fourth quarter 2019 sales to be in the range of $1.960 billion to $2.000 billion and Adjusted Diluted EPS in the range of $0.89 to $0.91. For the full year 2019, we now expect sales in the range of $8.035 billion to $8.075 billion, a decrease of 2% over 2018, and Adjusted Diluted EPS to be in the range of $3.65 to $3.67, which is a decrease of 3% over 2018. This compares to our prior full-year 2019 guidance for sales in the range of $7.920 billion to $8.000 billion and Adjusted Diluted EPS in the range of $3.56 to $3.60.”

“While the current demand environment continues to be very challenging, we remain confident in the platform of strength that has been created by the Company’s consistent and strong performance. The electronics revolution is creating exciting long-term growth opportunities for Amphenol across each of our diversified end markets, with customers driving their products and networks to achieve ever higher levels of performance. We believe these opportunities will enable a long-term increase in demand for our expanded range of high-technology interconnect, sensor and antenna products. Our ongoing actions to leverage our competitive advantages and create sustained financial strength, as well as our initiatives to expand our high-technology product offerings, both organically and through our acquisition program, have created an excellent base for future performance. I amconfident in the ability of our outstanding, entrepreneurial management team to dynamically adjust to the always changing environment, to continue to generate strong profitability and to further capitalize on the many opportunities to expand our market position regardless of the underlying demand environment.”

Net change in accrued pension and postretirement benefits for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 included an $81 million payment made to fund the Company’s U.S. defined benefit pension plans, which had the impact of reducing Net cash provided by operating activities by the same amount for this period.

AMPHENOL CORPORATION
SUPPLEMENTAL FINANCIAL INFORMATION
RECONCILIATIONS OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(Unaudited)
(dollars in millions, except per share data)

Management utilizes the non-GAAP financial measures defined below as part of its internal reviews for purposes of monitoring, evaluating and forecasting the Company’s financial performance, communicating operating results to the Company's Board of Directors and assessing related employee compensation measures. Management believes that such non-GAAP financial measures may be helpful to investors in assessing the Company’s overall financial performance, trends and period-over-period comparative results. The following non-GAAP financial measures exclude income and expenses that are not directly related to the Company's operating performance during the periods presented. Items excluded in the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures in any period may consist of, without limitation, acquisition-related expenses, refinancing-related costs, and certain discrete tax items including but not limited to (i) the excess tax benefits related to stock-based compensation and (ii) the impact of significant changes in tax law. The following non-GAAP financial information is included for supplemental purposes only and should not be considered in isolation, as a substitute for or superior to the related U.S. GAAP financial measures. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are not necessarily the same or comparable to similar measures presented by other companies, as such measures may be calculated differently or may exclude different items. Such non-GAAP financial measures should be read in conjunction with the Company’s financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The following are reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures for the periods presented:

While the terms “operating margin” and “effective tax rate” are not considered U.S. GAAP financial measures, for purposes of this table, we derive the reported(GAAP) measures based on GAAP results, which serve as the basis for the reconciliation to their comparable non-GAAP financial measure.

 

 

(2)

The definitions of non-GAAP financial measures used are as follows:

Adjusted Operating Income is defined as Operating Income (as reported in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income), excluding income and expenses that are not directly related to the Company's operating performance during the periods presented.

Adjusted Operating Margin is defined as Adjusted Operating Income (as defined above) expressed as a percentage of Net sales (as reported in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income).

Adjusted Net Income attributable to Amphenol Corporation is defined as Net Income attributable to Amphenol Corporation (as reported in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income), excluding income and expenses and their specific tax effects that are not directly related to the Company's operating performance during the periods presented.

Adjusted Effective Tax Rate is defined as Provision for income taxes (as reported in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income) expressed as a percentage of Income before income taxes (as reported in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income), each excluding the income and expenses and their specific tax effects that are not directly related to the Company’s operating performance during the periods presented.

Adjusted Diluted EPS is defined as diluted earnings per share (as reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP), excluding income and expenses and their specific tax effects that are not directly related to the Company's operating performance during the periods presented. Adjusted Diluted EPS is calculated as Adjusted Net Income attributable to Amphenol Corporation, as defined above, divided by the weighted average outstanding diluted shares (as reported in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income).

Forward-looking Adjusted Diluted EPS included in our guidance excludes certain income and expenses, described above, that are not directly related to the Company's operating performance. The Company includes such items in its guidance only to the extent that such items have either (i) already been reflected in periods reported and are therefore included in the forward-looking full-year period or (ii) the Company reasonably expects to record them in the forward- looking periods presented and such amounts are estimable. As the Company has not identified any estimable items in the forward-looking periods presented, the reconciling items shown above for the full year 2019 guidance only reflect the impact of the items that were recognized during the nine months ended September 30, 2019.
