Xylem Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results

Stocks in this article: XYL

Xylem Inc. (NYSE: XYL), a leading global water technology company dedicated to solving the world’s most challenging water issues, today reported second quarter 2013 net income of $46 million, or $0.25 per share. Adjusted net income was $66 million, or $0.36 per share, excluding the impact of special items that included restructuring and realignment charges, and special tax items. Second quarter revenue was $960 million, down $6 million from the second quarter 2012. Strength in the company’s U.S. residential, commercial and agriculture business was more than offset by continued softness in Europe, as well as in the public utilities and industrial markets. Second quarter 2013 adjusted operating margins were 10.2 percent, excluding the impact of restructuring and realignment costs, down 380 basis points resulting from lower volume and continued investments in growth initiatives, the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange rates, and other items.

"While our second quarter results were lower than expected, we captured important contract wins in June, resulting in record orders of more than $1 billion in the quarter,” said Gretchen McClain, president and chief executive officer of Xylem Inc. “We continue to take strong and decisive actions to position the company for efficient operation and profitable growth. While we’re seeing the initial benefits from our on-going restructuring and organizational realignment, we are accelerating additional short- and long-term actions to further reduce our cost base and drive more efficiencies throughout our business.”

McClain said the company expects to benefit from investments in growth initiatives and from continued efforts to transform the business and improve growth execution.

“We are encouraged by our second quarter order rate and several new products that we launched during the second quarter, including our ‘smart’ dewatering solutions from Flygt and Godwin that are efficient, compact and meet our customers’ needs for more reliable and durable technologies,” McClain said. “These new products and some key contract wins give us confidence in an improved second half of the year and position us for long-term growth.”
