Todd A. Adams, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Process & Motion Control core growth in the quarter was 2% despite headwinds from Europe and a weaker North American mining end-market. Our Process & Motion Control Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded by 160 basis points over the prior year to 23.3% led by Rexnord Business System ("RBS") driven growth and profitability initiatives. Water Management core sales contracted by 9% in the quarter, driven by lower shipments out of our North American municipal water and wastewater backlog, which was partially offset by our continued outperformance of the U.S. non-residential construction market. Our Water Management Adjusted EBITDA margin was 16.3% in the quarter, up 230 basis points sequentially as a result of prior year cost/footprint reductions and RBS initiatives. The VAG acquisition integration is on track and we are confident that our Water Management platform is well positioned to capture the secular global growth in water moving forward.”
Fiscal 2013 OutlookMr. Adams continued, “During the quarter we saw a slowing environment in several of our key vertical markets as well as in Europe. We have anticipated a lower growth environment for the balance of our fiscal year and have proactively taken steps to reduce our costs while protecting prioritized growth investments. As a result, we have modified our fiscal 2013 outlook.”
- We adjusted our assumed Euro translation rate to reflect the strengthening U.S. dollar (prior outlook was EUR:USD at $1.30, now $1.15 - $1.20).
- Our outlook reflects a product line divestiture and a business wind-down/exit.
- We reflected a reduced outlook for North American mining, slower European demand and slower North American water treatment/infrastructure demand, offset by our internal growth initiatives.
