CIRCOR International, Inc. (NYSE: CIR), a provider of valves and other highly engineered products and subsystems that control the flow of fluids safely and efficiently in the aerospace, energy and industrial markets, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended October 3, 2010.

Management Comments on Third-Quarter Results

“Our third-quarter financial results demonstrate continuing improvements on the top and bottom line,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bill Higgins. “Revenues came in at the high end of our guidance, while earnings, exclusive of Leslie bankruptcy and asbestos charges, surpassed our expectations. Revenue growth was primarily driven by continued strength at the short cycle Energy business and earlier-cycle Flow Technologies end markets. Earnings benefited from segment performance, currency impacts and a reduced tax rate.”

“We are particularly pleased with our bookings performance, with orders up 51% year-over-year, which includes 17% from acquisitions,” said Higgins. “We achieved order growth across all three business segments, but saw particular strength in our short-cycle Energy business. While we had expected further sequential pick up in Energy’s longer cycle international project businesses, orders remained essentially flat. Flow Technologies experienced increased orders across most end markets. The increase in orders at Aerospace was primarily driven by the acquisition of Castle Precision Industries.”

“As previously announced, we have obtained the asbestos claimant votes necessary for approval of Leslie Controls’ pre-negotiated Chapter 11 reorganization and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court has entered an order confirming the plan,” said Higgins. “We are now focused on obtaining district court approval and then winning any appeals that may be pursued.”

Leslie’s final emergence from bankruptcy would not occur until any appeals are favorably resolved, although CIRCOR and Leslie believe that any such appeals would be without merit. Leslie is continuing to conduct business as usual during the Chapter 11 process.

Consolidated Results

Revenues for the third quarter of 2010 were $177.6 million, a 23% increase from $144.3 million generated in the third quarter of 2009. CIRCOR reported net income for the third quarter of 2010 of $10.4 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, compared with net income of $8.4 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2009.

Pre-tax Leslie bankruptcy and asbestos charges were $2.3 million for the three months ended October 3, 2010, compared with $2.0 million of non-bankruptcy asbestos charges for the year-earlier period. Excluding special charges and Leslie bankruptcy and asbestos charges net of tax, adjusted earnings per diluted share were $0.70 for the third quarter of 2010, an increase of 27% compared with $0.54 in the third quarter of 2009.

Consolidated Orders and Free Cash Flow

The Company received orders totaling $207.1 million during the third quarter of 2010, an increase of 51% compared with the third quarter of 2009 and a 21% increase compared with the second quarter of 2010. Backlog as of October 3, 2010 was $391.6 million, up 32% from backlog of $297.9 million at September 27, 2009 and up 23% from $317.6 million at July 4, 2010.

During the third quarter of 2010, the Company used $3.3 million of free cash flow (defined as net cash from operating activities, less capital expenditures and dividends paid) compared with generating $11.2 million in the third quarter of 2009 due primarily to changes in working capital and increased capital expenditures.

Energy

CIRCOR’s Energy segment revenues of $80.6 million for the quarter ended October 3, 2010 represent a 32% increase from $61.2 million for the quarter ended September 27, 2009. The increase included 24% organic growth and 12% from acquisitions, which was partially offset by a negative foreign currency adjustment of 4%. The organic growth was the result of a strong year-over-year rebound in the North American short-cycle business.

Incoming orders for the third quarter of 2010 were $98.5 million, an increase of 95% year over year and 24.0% sequentially. The year-over-year growth was due to strength in the North American short-cycle business and the acquisition of Pipeline Engineering in the fourth quarter of 2009. Ending backlog totaled $153.0 million, a 34% increase year over year and a 23% increase sequentially.

The Energy segment adjusted operating margin, which excludes the impact of special charges, was 11.1% during the third quarter of 2010 compared with 10.9% for the third quarter of 2009 and 8.3% for the second quarter of 2010. The increase in third-quarter 2010 operating margin was primarily driven by organic growth, associated operating leverage, favorable penalty reserve adjustments and productivity improvements. This was partially offset by continued pricing pressures - especially for large international projects - unfavorable mix and acquisition impacts.

Aerospace

CIRCOR’s Aerospace segment revenues increased by 8% to $28.3 million for the third quarter of 2010 from $26.2 million in the third quarter of 2009. The increase in revenues was driven by 9% growth from acquisitions and 2% organic growth, which was partially offset by a 2% decline from foreign currency adjustments. The organic growth was from sales of military landing gear, which offset small declines in other end markets.

Incoming orders for the third quarter of 2010 were $31.3 million, an increase of 15% year over year and 16% sequentially. The majority of the increase in orders was due to the acquisition of Castle in August. Ending backlog totaled $152.8 million, an increase of 27% year over year and 30% sequentially.

The Aerospace segment’s adjusted operating margin, which excludes the impact of special charges, was 9.6% for the third quarter of 2010 compared with 13.2% for the third quarter of 2009 and 14.6% for the second quarter of 2010. Third-quarter 2010 margins decreased primarily due to higher operating expenses related to support of new programs and acquisition transaction costs, partially offset by productivity gains and favorable pricing.

Flow Technologies

CIRCOR’s Flow Technologies segment revenues increased 21% to $68.6 million from $56.9 million in the third quarter of 2009. Third-quarter 2010 revenues reflected organic growth of 22%, primarily due to semiconductor, maritime, instrumentation and process strength, and growth from acquisitions of 2%, which was partially offset by foreign currency adjustments of 3%.

Incoming orders for this segment were $77.4 million for the third quarter of 2010, an increase of 30% year over year and 20% sequentially. The year-over-year increase was due to strength in all markets, with the exception of petrochemical and refining. Ending backlog totaled $85.9 million, an increase of 36% year over year and 14% sequentially.

This segment’s adjusted operating margin, which excludes the impact of special and Leslie asbestos and bankruptcy charges, for the third quarter of 2010 was 13.1% compared with 10.9% in the third quarter of 2009, and 10.1% in the second quarter of 2010. The third-quarter year-over-year margin increase was due to higher volumes, productivity and favorable mix.

Business and Financial Outlook

“Our sales and bookings trends are both positive, led by the short-cycle Energy and early-cycle Flow Technologies businesses,” said Higgins. “While the long-cycle businesses have recently stabilized, we have not seen a meaningful pick up at this point. Our balance sheet remains strong and will enable us to fund the Leslie reorganization plan and continue to invest in organic growth and strategic acquisitions.”

CIRCOR currently expects revenues for the fourth quarter of 2010 in the range of $192 million to $202 million and adjusted earnings in the range of $0.50 to $0.63 per diluted share. CIRCOR’s guidance for adjusted earnings per share excludes $0.06 per diluted share in Leslie asbestos and bankruptcy charges and assumes that exchange rates remain at present levels.
