Xylem Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2013 Results Reflecting Record Q4 Revenue And Improved Operational Performance

Xylem Inc. (NYSE: XYL), a leading global water technology company dedicated to solving the world’s most challenging water issues, today reported fourth quarter 2013 net income of $68 million, or $0.37 per share. Excluding the impact of restructuring, realignment and other special items, adjusted net income was $103 million or $0.56 per share, up 9 cents or 19 percent from the comparable period in 2012. Fourth quarter revenue was $1.03 billion, up 7 percent, reflective of strength in industrial and public utility markets. Fourth quarter adjusted operating margins improved 60 basis points, driven by higher volume and the impact of efficiency and cost control measures undertaken throughout the year.

"We are very pleased to deliver another strong quarter with upturns in revenue and earnings while continuing to execute our aggressive growth and operational improvement initiatives,” said Steve Loranger, chief executive officer and president of Xylem. “Organic order and revenue growth during the quarter point to the early success of our sales force accountability initiative and the strength of our business portfolio as economic conditions continue to improve. We launched new products such as our e-HM TM energy-efficient stainless steel industrial pump, and won new projects, such as a large contract to supply the technology and equipment for a sophisticated drainage system on the New Jersey coastline following the damage caused by Super Storm Sandy. Under the leadership of our new regional and growth center leaders, all of our businesses substantially contributed to fourth quarter performance and are energized to build even more momentum as we begin 2014.”

Loranger said the company continues to execute cost reduction actions including further refinement of the global organization and footprint, and has reinvigorated its productivity initiatives around global sourcing and Lean Six Sigma.

“We intend to bring more to the bottom line by continuing to take out costs where we can, and continue deploying our capital to invest in the business, and maximize shareholder return,” Loranger said.
