Xylem Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012 Results, Announces 15 Percent Dividend Increase

Xylem Inc. (NYSE: XYL), a leading global water technology company dedicated to solving the world’s most challenging water issues, today reported fourth quarter 2012 net income of $73 million, or $0.39 per share, up 39 percent from the fourth quarter 2011. Excluding the impact of one-time separation costs and other adjustments associated with Xylem’s 2011 spinoff from ITT Corporation as well as restructuring and realignment costs, adjusted net income was $88 million or $0.47 per share, up 8 cents or 21 percent on a normalized basis from 2011. Fourth quarter revenue was $969 million, down 3 percent, reflective of weakness in industrial and public utility markets. Fourth quarter adjusted operating margins improved 140 basis points driven by efficiency and cost control measures.

_______________________

1 The 2011 normalized earnings per share reflect adjustments (including one-time separation costs, interest expense, stand-alone costs, and special tax items) to our GAAP results to better illustrate year-over-year performance. The normalized earnings are intended to give a representation of our performance had Xylem been a stand-alone company in 2011.

"Our fourth quarter results show the impact of strategic steps we’ve taken to improve our financial performance, streamlining operations and taking aggressive cost control measures in the face of challenging market conditions,” said Gretchen McClain, president and chief executive officer of Xylem Inc. "While recognizing and addressing uncertainties in the market, we stayed focused on the needs of our customers, as illustrated during our response to the flooding following Hurricane Sandy. We have continued to invest for future growth, deploying assets to accelerate new product technology and expanding our growth in emerging markets. We also continue to acquire attractive businesses to supplement our growth platforms of analytics, dewatering and services. Our most recent acquisition, PIMS Group of the U.K., is our third since becoming an independent company, and will strengthen our aftermarket and service offering.”
