Xylem Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2016 Earnings

Xylem Inc. (NYSE: XYL), a leading global water technology company dedicated to solving the world's most challenging water issues, today reported third quarter 2016 net income of $73 million, or $0.41 per share, a decrease of 15 percent year-over-year reflecting higher restructuring, realignment and acquisition-related costs. Adjusted net income in the quarter was $97 million or $0.54 per share, a 10-percent increase over the prior year period. Third quarter revenue was $897 million, which was down one percent from third quarter 2015 and flat organically. The robust revenue growth in the public utility end market was offset by weaker conditions in the industrial sector. Reported operating margin in the quarter declined 110 basis points to 12.2 percent. On an adjusted basis, operating margin grew 90 basis points to 14.6 percent as strong execution on productivity initiatives more than offset inflation and targeted investments in strategic growth initiatives.

"I am pleased with our team's performance this quarter as they executed well in a mixed market environment, while successfully advancing on our capital deployment strategy as well," said Patrick Decker, Xylem President and Chief Executive Officer. "We continued to capitalize on a strong public utility end market, where we grew 10 percent globally and 25 percent in the U.S. in the quarter. This growth helped offset the softness in the broader industrial sector. We continue to drive cost savings from global procurement and lean and six sigma initiatives. In addition, we are accelerating certain restructuring actions to mitigate the weaker industrial sector and enable us to continue to drive margin expansion. Our productivity and business simplification initiatives will be key contributors as we continue to invest for stronger growth in the marketplace while further expanding operating margins to enhance our long-term earnings growth."

"Yesterday, we completed the acquisition of Sensus, which expands our offerings to customers around the globe and reshapes the growth profile of Xylem as we significantly increase our exposure to the fast-growing public utility end market. This addition also enhances our ability to bring systems intelligence solutions to the marketplace in the water and energy industries. We are well into executing the integration planning of this business, operating as one business today and focused on realizing cost synergies and driving the substantial revenue synergies we expect from this combination."

Mr. Decker continued, "In addition, we have completed the acquisition of Visenti, which provides products and services for utilities to optimize their drinking water networks, including in the rapidly growing areas of leak detection, pressure management and water quality monitoring. Visenti's portfolio is highly complementary to the Sensus offerings, and targets utilities' growing challenge of managing water loss, known as non-revenue water. This addition will enable us to immediately offer more valuable solutions to our customers. We look forward to integrating their capabilities into Xylem and helping them to scale and grow this business."

Full-year 2016 Outlook

Xylem increased its forecast of full-year 2016 revenue to approximately $3.8 billion, including approximately five-percent growth from completed acquisitions and the unfavorable impacts of foreign exchange. On an organic basis, Xylem's revenue growth now is anticipated to be one-and-one-half percent.

Xylem is maintaining the same adjusted EPS mid-point for the full year, while narrowing the range of its earnings outlook. Xylem now expects to generate full-year 2016 adjusted operating income of $509 million to $513 million, or adjusted EPS of $2.02 to $2.04. The Company is also updating its projected restructuring and realignment costs to approximately $45 million for the year. Excluding revenue, Xylem provides guidance only on a non-GAAP basis due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting certain amounts that would be included in GAAP earnings, such as integration and acquisition-related costs, special charges and discrete tax impacts.

Third Quarter Segment Results

Water Infrastructure

Xylem's Water Infrastructure segment consists of its businesses serving clean water delivery, wastewater transport and treatment, dewatering and analytical instrumentation.
  • Third quarter 2016 Water Infrastructure revenue was $554 million, up one percent over the prior year period on a reported basis. This growth reflects continued strength in the public utility end market, which was up 10 percent on a global basis in the quarter and 25 percent in the U.S. In addition, the delivery of a major project in India contributed to the gains. This growth was largely offset by weaker conditions in the industrial end market, notably the ongoing declines in oil and gas in North America and a slowdown in Middle East projects.
  • Reported segment operating income was $79 million in the third quarter, down from $83 million in the prior year. Adjusted segment operating income was $88 million, a four-percent increase over the $85 million generated in the comparable period a year ago. Operating margin for the quarter decreased 80 basis points to 14.3 percent, reflecting a year-over-year increase in restructuring and realignment charges. Excluding these charges, adjusted operating margin for the segment increased 50 basis points reflecting strong productivity and volume growth, net of inflation, investments in strategic growth initiatives and unfavorable mix.

Applied Water

Xylem's Applied Water segment consists of its portfolio of businesses in residential and commercial building services, and industrial and agricultural applications.
  • Third quarter 2016 revenue was $343 million, down two percent from the prior year period on a reported basis and one percent in constant currency. New product sales and channel investments helped drive growth in Europe, which was more than offset by declines in the U.S. industrial and commercial building sectors.
  • Segment operating income was $50 million in the third quarter, up from $46 million in third quarter 2015. Adjusted segment operating income grew year over year by $5 million to $53 million, reflecting the impact of accelerated productivity initiatives and cost control measures. Segment operating margin increased 150 basis points to 14.6 percent. On an adjusted basis, segment operating margin grew 180 basis points to 15.5 percent. A strong focus on cost reductions drove this margin expansion, which was partially offset by inflation and ongoing investment in growth initiatives.

Xylem Inc. Non-GAAP Measures
 
 

Management reviews key performance indicators including revenue, gross margins, segment operating income and margins, orders growth, free cash flow, working capital, and backlog, among others. In addition, we consider certain non-GAAP (or "adjusted") measures to be useful to management and investors evaluating our operating performance for the periods presented, and provide a tool for evaluating our ongoing operations, liquidity and management of assets. This information can assist investors in assessing our financial performance and measures our ability to generate capital for deployment among competing strategic alternatives and initiatives, including but not limited to, dividends, acquisitions, share repurchases and debt repayment. However, other than with respect to total revenue, we only provide guidance on a non-GAAP basis and do not provide reconciliations of such forward-looking measures to GAAP due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting certain amounts that would be included in GAAP earnings, such as, integration and acquisition-related costs, special charges and tax related special items. These adjusted metrics are consistent with how management views our business and are used to make financial, operating and planning decisions. These metrics, however, are not measures of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for revenue, operating income, net income, earnings per share (basic and diluted) or net cash from operating activities as determined in accordance with GAAP. We consider the following non-GAAP measures, which may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies, to be key performance indicators:
 
"Organic revenue" and "Organic orders" defined as revenue and orders, respectively, excluding the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency translation and contributions from acquisitions and divestitures. Divestitures include sales of insignificant portions of our business that did not meet the criteria for classification as a discontinued operation. The period-over-period change resulting from foreign currency translation assumes no change in exchange rates from the prior period.
 
"Constant currency" defined as financial results adjusted for foreign currency translation impacts by translating current period and prior period activity using the same currency conversion rate. This approach is used for countries whose functional currency is not the U.S. dollar.
 
"EBITDA" defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization expense, and share-based compensation. "Adjusted EBITDA" reflects the adjustment to EBITDA to exclude restructuring and realignment costs, gain on sale of business and special charges.
 
"Adjusted Operating Income", "Adjusted Segment Operating Income", and "Adjusted EPS" defined as operating income, segment operating income and earnings per share, adjusted to exclude restructuring and realignment costs, gain on sale of businesses, special charges and tax-related special items, as applicable.
 
"Free Cash Flow" defined as net cash from operating activities, as reported in the Statement of Cash Flow, less capital expenditures as well as adjustments for other significant items that impact current results which management believes are not related to our ongoing operations and performance. Our definition of free cash flows does not consider certain non-discretionary cash payments, such as debt.
 
"Realignment costs" defined as costs not included in restructuring costs that are incurred as part of actions taken to reposition our business, including items such as professional fees, severance, relocation, travel, facility set-up and other costs.
 

"Special charges" defined as costs incurred by the Company, such as interest expense related to the early extinguishment of debt during Q2 2016, initial acquisition and integration related costs (including financing costs related to the bridge loan entered into in Q3 2016 for the Sensus acquisition), costs incurred for the contractual indemnification of tax obligations to ITT and other special non-operating items.
 

"Tax-related special items" defined as tax items, such as tax return versus tax provision adjustments, tax exam impacts, tax law change impacts, significant reserves for cash repatriation, excess tax benefits/losses and other discrete tax adjustments.
