CIRCOR Reports Third-Quarter 2012 Financial Results

CIRCOR International, Inc. (NYSE: CIR), a leading provider of valves and other highly engineered products for the energy, aerospace and industrial markets, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

“We are pleased with our excellent performance in the third quarter driven by margin improvement and the continued execution of our growth strategy,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bill Higgins. “Our Energy segment continues to improve execution operationally and in international projects where we continue to grow and where we achieved favorable closure on several completed projects. In addition, Flow Technologies continued to deliver strong operating margins.”

“During the quarter we continued to focus on our growth strategy in the oil & gas, power generation and aerospace markets,” continued Higgins. “We have been attracting top talent across the organization, improving operations with Lean and operational excellence, and enhancing our competitive position by building our global supply chain and manufacturing footprint around the world to service global customers.”

CIRCOR also announced that it is taking several repositioning actions over the next three quarters to enhance profitability, including consolidating facilities, shifting supply to lower cost regions and exiting certain non-strategic product lines. CIRCOR’s third-quarter results include charges associated with these repositioning actions, and the Company expects further charges in the fourth quarter of 2012 and the first half of 2013. The Company anticipates annualized pre-tax savings from these actions to be approximately $7 million with a favorable margin impact in the range of 100 basis points, to be fully realized in the second half of 2013.

“As a result of our Lean and operational excellence initiatives, the efficiencies we have gained in our operations has and will enable us to consolidate facilities and drive margin expansion,” said Higgins. “We believe CIRCOR is well positioned to continue to grow revenue, expand margins and deliver enhanced shareholder value.”
