Xylem Inc. (NYSE: XYL), a leading global water technology company focused on solving the world’s most challenging water issues, today reported third quarter revenue of $931 million, up 3 percent on a constant currency basis, down 1 percent as reported from the third quarter 2011. Third quarter net income was $72 million or $0.38 per share, down $0.04 per share from the same period last year. Adjusting for one-time separation costs resulting from the Xylem spinoff from ITT Corporation on October 31, 2011, and special items, net income was $83 million or $0.44 per share, down $0.01 per share over the third quarter 2011 on a normalized basis.*
"As we mark our first anniversary as a stand-alone water company, our performance showcases both the strength of our global portfolio, with 9 percent constant currency revenue growth in the emerging markets, and our strategic focus on margin expansion through the execution of our Customer Excellence sales initiative and cost discipline,” said Gretchen McClain, President and Chief Executive Officer of Xylem. “We’re also seeing the benefit of our investments in acquisitions. Just last week we completed the purchase of Heartland Pump, which expands our U.S. reach in dewatering rental and service, and grows our presence in industrial markets. And our two other recent acquisitions, YSI and MJK Automation, both continue to perform well and help establish our Analytics business as a long-term growth platform.”
McClain said the company continues to move forward with restructuring and realignment initiatives, and now foresees approximately $20 million in aggregated costs during 2012 to position the business for future growth. The company maintains its outlook for full-year 2012 revenue of $3.8 billion, and has revised the mid-point of its 2012 earnings guidance to $1.76 from $1.77 per share to reflect the $0.01 per share dilutive impact of the Heartland Pump acquisition.
