AMETEK Announces Record Third Quarter Results and Raises 2022 Guidance

BERWYN, Pa. , Nov. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- AMETEK, Inc. (NYSE: AME) today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2022.

AMETEK's third quarter 2022 sales were a record $1.55 billion, an 8% increase over the third quarter of 2021, with organic sales growth of 11%. Operating income increased 14% to a record $384.5 million and operating margins were 24.8%, up 140 basis points from third quarter 2021 margins.

On a GAAP basis, third quarter earnings per diluted share were $1.29. Adjusted earnings in the quarter were a record $1.45 per diluted share, up 15% from the third quarter of 2021. Adjusted earnings adds back non-cash, after-tax, acquisition-related intangible amortization of $0.16 per diluted share. A reconciliation of reported GAAP results to adjusted results is included in the financial tables accompanying this release and on the AMETEK website.

"AMETEK's results for the third quarter were excellent," commented David A. Zapico, AMETEK Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Continued strong sales and orders growth combined with outstanding execution drove robust margin expansion and record earnings which exceeded our estimates. Our highly differentiated businesses and flexible operating structure enabled us to manage through an increasingly dynamic macro environment and deliver record results. Given this performance, we are again raising our sales and earnings guidance for the full year."

Electronic Instruments Group (EIG)

EIG sales in the third quarter were $1.05 billion, up 7% from the third quarter of 2021. EIG's operating income in the quarter increased 11% to $272.7 million and operating income margins were 25.9%, an increase of 90 basis points versus the third quarter of 2021.

"EIG performed exceptionally well in the quarter with strong and broad-based sales growth and excellent operating results," noted Mr. Zapico. "We continue to see solid demand in our key end markets, in particular across our Process businesses."

Electromechanical Group (EMG)

Third quarter EMG sales were a record $497.7 million, up 8% from the same quarter in 2021. EMG's third quarter operating income was a record $136.5 million, up 19% versus the prior year, while operating income margins were a record 27.4% in the quarter, up 240 basis points versus the prior year. 

"Our EMG businesses delivered exceptional performance in the third quarter. Continued strong sales growth and tremendous operating execution drove robust margin expansion and record level operating margins," noted Mr. Zapico.

2022 Outlook 

"Our businesses continue to perform extraordinarily well in a difficult environment. AMETEK's flexible and disciplined growth model allows us to navigate external challenges, deliver exceptional results and ensure we are positioned for long term success. Our differentiated businesses, diversified market exposures, proven operating capabilities and strong cash flows provide us the ability to drive long-term, sustainable growth," continued Mr. Zapico.   

"For 2022, we now expect overall sales to be up approximately 10% compared to 2021. Adjusted diluted earnings per share are expected to be in the range of $5.61 to $5.63, an increase of 16% over the comparable basis for 2021. This is an increase from our previous guidance range of $5.46 to $5.54 per diluted share," he added.

"We expect overall sales in the fourth quarter to be up mid-single digits on a percentage basis versus the prior year. Fourth quarter adjusted earnings per diluted share are anticipated to be in the range of $1.45 to $1.47, up 6% to 7% compared to the fourth quarter of 2021," concluded Mr. Zapico.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

The Company supplements its consolidated financial statements presented on a U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") basis with certain non-GAAP financial information to provide investors with greater insight, increased transparency and allow for a more comprehensive understanding of the information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making.  Reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures are included in the accompanying financial tables. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a replacement for, or superior to, the comparable GAAP measure, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

The Company believes that these measures provide useful information to investors by reflecting additional ways of viewing AMETEK's operations that, when reconciled to the comparable GAAP measure, helps our investors to better understand the long-term profitability trends of our business, and facilitates easier comparisons of our profitability to prior and future periods and to our peers.
