Ingersoll Rand Delivers Third-Quarter EPS From Continuing Operations Of $1.07


Ingersoll Rand’s major end markets showed an uneven and choppy demand pattern in the third quarter of 2012 with moderate organic growth rates in the United States and Latin America, and declining activity in Western Europe and in Asia. Based on current order rates, the company expects fourth quarter revenues to be flat compared with last year.

Revenues for full-year 2012 are expected to be in the range of $13.95 billion to $14.05 billion. The year-over-year change in currency exchange rates is expected to reduce reported revenue growth by 2 percentage points in 2012. Full-year EPS from continuing operations are expected to be in the range of $3.17 to $3.23. The forecast includes a tax rate of 19 percent for continuing operations and an average diluted share count for the full year of approximately 311 million shares. Available cash flow for full-year 2012 is expected to approximate $1.0 billion, based on projected earnings, capital expenditures and working capital requirements.

Fourth-quarter 2012 revenues are expected to be in the range of $3.4 billion to $3.5 billion and EPS from continuing operations are expected to be in the range of $0.64 to $0.70. The fourth-quarter forecast reflects a tax rate of 29 percent for continuing operations (includes a $22 million discrete tax charge) and an average diluted share count of approximately 306 million shares.
