Flow International Announces Third Quarter Results

KENT, Wash., March 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Flow International Corporation (Nasdaq:FLOW), the world's leading developer and manufacturer of industrial waterjet machines for cutting and cleaning applications, today reported results for its fiscal year 2013 third quarter ended January 31, 2013.

For the quarter, Flow reported revenues of $67.7 million, an increase of 3% from the year-ago quarter revenues of $65.8 million, and another all-time quarterly high. Standard Segment revenues of $62.6 million represent a 6% improvement versus the year-ago quarter, with consumable spare parts sales up 9% to $20.7 million over the year-ago quarter. Income from continuing operations in the third quarter was $2.7 million or $0.06 per share, compared to income from continuing operations of $3.3 million or $0.07 per share in the prior-year period.

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $6.9 million or 10.3% of sales, compared to $8.1 million or 12.3% of sales for the year-ago quarter. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Net Income is provided in the accompanying financial tables.

"Even when comparing with a strong year-ago quarter, our aftermarket business grew 9% while our standard systems business grew 4%, and even while continuing to invest for growth, we continue to post double digit Adjusted EBITDA margins," said Charley Brown, President and CEO of Flow. "We are very pleased with our trajectory; it has delivered sequential growth for nine of the past ten quarters." 

Operations Review for the 2013 Fiscal Third Quarter

  • Standard Segment sales, which include sales of systems that do not require significant custom configuration as well as parts and services for those installed systems, were $62.6 million for the quarter, an increase of $3.5 million or 6% from the year-ago quarter. 
  • Advanced Segment sales, which include sales of complex aerospace and application systems requiring specific custom configuration and advanced features, were $5.1 million for the quarter, and as anticipated, a decline of $1.7 million or 25% from the year-ago quarter. Advanced Segment sales are recorded using the percentage of completion method, with lead times generally ranging from 12 to 24 months.
  • Aggregate gross profits were $26.7 million or 39% of sales for the quarter, compared to $26.1 million or 40% of sales in the prior-year quarter.
  • Standard Segment gross profits were $25.1 million or 40% of sales for the quarter, compared to the year-ago quarter gross profit of $24.2 million or 41% of sales. The gross profit variation is driven by product and geographic mix. 
  • Advanced Segment gross profits were $1.6 million or 31% of sales in the current quarter, compared to $1.8 million or 27% of sales in the year-ago quarter.
  •  Total operating expenses for the quarter were $21.9 million, compared to $20.1 million in the prior-year quarter. The year over year increase reflects timing of initiatives undertaken by the Company, higher relative labor and compensation related costs, variable costs associated with higher sales, as well as the timing of marketing and other sales related support.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income, determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), excluding the effects of income taxes, depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, interest expense, and other non-cash charges, which includes such items as stock-based compensation expense, foreign currency gains or losses, and other non-cash allowable add backs pursuant to the Company's Facility Agreement.
             
Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and the presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. The items excluded from this non-GAAP financial measure are significant components of the Company's financial statements and must be considered in performing a comprehensive analysis of the overall financial results. The Company uses this measure, together with GAAP financial metrics, to assess its financial performance, allocate resources, evaluate the overall progress towards meeting its long-term financial objectives, and assess compliance with its debt covenants. The Company believes that this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors and analysts in allowing for greater transparency with respect to the supplemental information used in the Company's financial and operational decision making. The Company's calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be consistent with calculations of similar measures used by other companies.
