  • Revenue growth was 2%
  • Free Cash Flow was $30 million; YTD free cash flow at 105% of net income

Management Comments

“Q3 was a strong quarter resulting from our ongoing focus on growth, margin expansion, and cash generation,” said Scott Buckhout, CIRCOR’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We delivered another quarter of double-digit adjusted operating margin, up 230 basis points from last year. On the growth side, Flow Technologies had a record quarter on orders as we benefited from robust downstream oil & gas activity and penetration into new markets and applications.

“Free cash flow was strong in the quarter as a result of improved margins and working capital performance. Year-to-date free cash flow exceeded net income.

“The restructuring actions we announced last quarter are on schedule and expected to deliver the projected annual savings of approximately $4 million beginning in 2014.

“In addition, we recently updated our 5-year strategic plan. Based on that work we are changing our organizational structure to simplify the way we manage CIRCOR and, over time, better align our businesses with end markets. As part of the organizational change, we will consolidate our group structure from three groups to two. Initially, these changes are focused on reducing management layers and combining back-office operations. Our commercial organization will remain unchanged. We expect to complete this reorganization in the fourth quarter of 2013 and anticipate a reduction in our annual expenses of approximately $5.0 million.
