Amphenol Corporation (NYSE:APH) reported today a GAAP diluted loss per share for the fourth quarter 2017 of $0.34 1 compared to GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share ("EPS") of $0.75 for the comparable 2016 period. GAAP diluted loss per share for the fourth quarter 2017 includes (i) an estimated one-time charge of approximately $400 million ($1.26 per share) related to the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the "Tax Act") partially offset by (ii) the excess tax benefit of approximately $21 million ($0.07 per share) related to options exercised during the quarter, which compares to a tax benefit of $0.01 included in our fourth quarter 2017 guidance. Excluding the effect of these items, fourth quarter 2017 Adjusted Diluted EPS 2 was a record $0.86 compared to $0.75 for the comparable 2016 period. The charge of $1.26 per share related to the Tax Act represents our current estimate of taxes arising from the implementation of a modified territorial tax regime and the deemed and intended repatriation of certain unremitted earnings of foreign subsidiaries, partially offset by the re-measurement of the Company's net U.S. deferred tax liabilities arising from a lower U.S. corporate tax rate. In addition, as a result of the Tax Act's reduction of a substantial portion of the future tax benefits of the Company's stock option program as well as 2017 being the first year in which these excess tax benefits were reflected in income under GAAP, the Company has now excluded the excess tax benefit of stock option exercises in the presentation of its adjusted non-GAAP results for 2017.

Sales for the fourth quarter of 2017 were a record $1.944 billion compared to $1.651 billion for the comparable 2016 period. Currency translation had the effect of increasing sales by approximately $36 million in the fourth quarter of 2017 compared to the 2016 period.

For the year ended December 31, 2017, GAAP Diluted EPS was $2.06, compared to $2.61 for the comparable 2016 period. In addition to the impact of the Tax Act mentioned above, the 2017 period includes acquisition-related costs of $4 million ($0.01 per share) as well as the tax benefit of options exercised during the year of approximately $67 million ($0.21 per share), which compares to a tax benefit of $0.15 per share included in our 2017 full year guidance. The 2016 period included acquisition-related costs of $37 million ($0.11 per share), mainly relating to the acquisition of FCI Asia Pte Ltd (FCI) in January 2016. Excluding the effect of these items, Adjusted Diluted EPS for the year ended December 31, 2017 was a record $3.12 compared to $2.72 for the 2016 period.

Sales for the year ended December 31, 2017 were a record $7.011 billion compared to $6.286 billion for the 2016 period. Currency translation had the effect of increasing sales by approximately $13 million for the full year 2017 compared to the 2016 period.

Amphenol President and Chief Executive Officer, R. Adam Norwitt, stated, "We are extremely pleased to close the fourth quarter 2017 well above the high end of our guidance in sales and Adjusted Diluted EPS. Sales were a record $1.944 billion in the fourth quarter and Adjusted Diluted EPS was a record $0.86 in the fourth quarter. We achieved these record results amidst an environment of continued geopolitical and economic policy uncertainty. Compared to the fourth quarter 2016, sales increased a strong 18%, reflecting diversified growth across the Company's markets including in particular mobile devices, industrial, automotive, commercial air and military. For the full year 2017, we grew sales by a strong 12%. Our record performance was driven primarily by organic growth as well as through the Company's successful acquisition program. While GAAP Diluted EPS in the fourth quarter and full year 2017 was significantly impacted by the one-time estimated charge resulting from the Tax Act, our Adjusted Diluted EPS grew by a strong 15% for both the quarter and the full year 2017 compared to the respective 2016 periods. This earnings growth was driven by our strong operating results, as reflected in the Company's achievement of an Operating Margin of 20.5% and 20.4% in the fourth quarter and full year 2017, respectively. I am very proud of our organization as we continue to execute extremely well."

"The Company continues to expand its growth opportunities through a deep commitment to developing enabling technologies for customers in all markets, an ongoing strategy of market and geographic diversification, as well as an active acquisition program. As part of that program, near the end of the fourth quarter, the Company acquired Sunpool Automotive Electronics Ltd. Sunpool, based in the industrial center of northeast China, is a leading manufacturer of automotive antennas and related interconnect assemblies for the Chinese automotive market, with annual sales of approximately $30 million. In addition, in early January, the Company acquired CTI Holdings Inc. ("CTI"). CTI, based in Toronto, Canada, is a North American leader in the design and manufacture of interconnect assemblies for IT Datacom and industrial applications with annual sales of approximately $60 million. These acquisitions collectively strengthen the Company's global capabilities and enhance our product offerings in these important end markets."

"Operating cash flow in the quarter and full year reached record levels of $428 million and $1.144 billion, respectively, a clear confirmation of the quality of the Company's earnings. In addition to the strong operating results, the Company continues to deploy its financial strength in a variety of ways to increase shareholder value. This included the purchase during the fourth quarter of 2017 of 0.7 million shares of the Company's stock under our $1 billion two-year open market stock repurchase plan, bringing total repurchases under the plan to approximately 8.4 million shares, or $618 million."

"The Company's consistent and balanced approach to capital deployment will be further enhanced through the increased flexibility afforded by the territorial tax system implemented in the Tax Act. We believe the ability to more freely move earnings under the new territorial system will provide additional support for the Company's long-term capital allocation strategy which focuses on achieving a balance among organic business development, acquisition growth and shareholder returns, including dividends and share buybacks."

"While we are pleased that the overall demand environment has improved, the global economy remains dynamic. Considering this environment and based on current currency exchange rates, we expect first quarter 2018 sales in the range of $1.780 billion to $1.820 billion and diluted EPS in the range of $0.78 to $0.80. For the full year 2018, we expect to achieve sales in the range of $7.440 billion to $7.600 billion, an increase over 2017 of 6% to 8%. We also expect diluted EPS in the range of $3.39 to $3.47, an increase of 9% to 11% compared to 2017 Adjusted Diluted EPS. As we are still evaluating the impact of the Tax Act, we currently expect an estimated benefit of at least 100 basis points on our effective tax rate going forward. Accordingly, our full year 2018 guidance reflects this approximate benefit of the Tax Act compared to the Adjusted Effective Tax Rate in 2017 of approximately 26.5%. The effective tax rate included in our guidance does not reflect any potential impact due to the finalization of the estimated one-time charge resulting from the Tax Act."

"The electronics revolution continues to create exciting, long-term growth opportunities for Amphenol. We are very encouraged by the Company's broad-based and strong results in 2017, and we remain very confident for the future. New applications and higher performance requirements continue to drive increased demand for our broadened range of high technology products across all our diversified end markets. Our ongoing actions to strengthen our competitive advantages and build sustained financial strength, as well as our initiatives to expand our high technology product offering both organically and through our successful acquisition program, have created an excellent base for future performance. I am confident in the ability of our outstanding, entrepreneurial management team to dynamically adjust to the constantly changing environment, to continue to generate strong profitability and to further capitalize on the many opportunities to expand our market position."

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains certain statements that are intended to be "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, included in this press release that address activities, events or developments that the Company expects or anticipates will or may occur in the future, including, but not limited to, the Company's expectations regarding first quarter and full year 2018 sales, GAAP and Adjusted Diluted EPS as well as the Company's anticipated effective tax rate and the related impact of the Tax Act, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are based on our management's current beliefs, expectations and assumptions and on information currently available to our management. Forward-looking statements may be identified through the use of terms such as "expect", "may", "will", "should", "intend", "plan", "guidance" and/or other similar expressions generally intended to identify forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties, and actual results may differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. Factors that might cause or contribute to a material difference include, but are not limited to, governmental, political, economic, end market, competitive, technological, acquisition-related, cybersecurity and foreign currency-related risk factors that may affect the Company's operations, products, markets, customers and prices. Such forward-looking statements may also be impacted by, among other things, clarifications to and additional guidance under the Tax Act. More specifically, on December 22, 2017, the Tax Act was enacted and it significantly revises U.S. corporate income tax law by, among other things, reducing the U.S. corporate income tax rate to 21% and implementing a modified territorial tax system that includes a one-time transition tax on deemed repatriated earnings of foreign subsidiaries. The estimated impact of the Tax Act on our tax provision incorporates assumptions made based upon the Company's current interpretation of the Tax Act, and it may change as the Company receives additional clarification and implementation guidance and as the interpretation of the Tax Act evolves over time. Details regarding various significant risks and uncertainties that may affect our operating and financial performance can be found in Part I, Item 1A of the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, and other Company filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission including Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K. There may be other risks and uncertainties that we are unable to predict at this time or that we currently do not expect to cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements we may make and affect our operating and financial performance. Given these risks and uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. Forward-looking Adjusted Diluted EPS included in our first quarter and full year 2018 guidance assumes that the Company will not have, in either period, any additional income or expense that is not directly related to the Company's operating performance during such periods, including additional income or expense arising from, among other things, clarifications to and additional guidance under the Tax Act. Further details regarding these types of income and expenses are provided below under the heading "Non-GAAP Financial Measures." To the extent the Company has any such income or expense in such periods that is not directly related to the Company's operating performance, then the Company's forward-looking diluted EPS expectations for the first quarter and/or full year 2018 will be adjusted to exclude such income or expense. Forward-looking statements set forth in this press release speak only as of the date hereof and the Company does not undertake any obligation to revise or update these statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The financial statements included within this press release are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). This press release also contains certain non-GAAP financial information, including Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Operating Margin, Adjusted Net Income attributable to Amphenol Corporation, Adjusted Effective Tax Rate and Adjusted Diluted EPS (collectively, "non-GAAP financial measures"), which are intended to supplement the reported GAAP results. Management utilizes these non-GAAP financial measures as part of its internal reviews for purposes of monitoring, evaluating and forecasting the Company's financial performance, communicating operating results to the Company's Board of Directors and assessing related employee compensation measures. Management believes that such non-GAAP financial measures may be helpful to investors in assessing the Company's overall financial performance, trends and period-over-period comparative results. Non-GAAP financial measures discussed within this press release exclude income and expenses that are not directly related to the Company's operating performance during the periods presented. Items excluded in the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures in any period may consist of, without limitation, acquisition-related expenses, refinance-related costs and certain discrete tax items including but not limited to (i) the estimated one-time income tax charge related to the Tax Act and (ii) the excess tax benefits related to stock-based compensation that may arise during such periods. Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included at the end of this press release. However, such non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation, as a substitute for or superior to the related GAAP financial measures. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are not necessarily the same or comparable to similar measures presented by other companies, as such measures may be calculated differently or may exclude different items. The non-GAAP financial measures are defined within the "Supplemental Financial Information" table at the end of this press release and should be read in conjunction with the Company's financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP.
_________________________
1   GAAP diluted loss per share for the fourth quarter 2017 would be $0.01 less if the dilutive impact of common share equivalents was included in dilutive weighted average common shares outstanding. Such shares are excluded from the computation of GAAP Diluted loss per share due to the GAAP net loss during the period. This impact is excluded from Adjusted Diluted EPS for the fourth quarter 2017. See the condensed consolidated statements of income and supplemental financial information attached for further information.

SUPPLEMENTAL FINANCIAL INFORMATION

RECONCILIATIONS OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

(Unaudited)

(dollars in millions, except per share data)
 

Management utilizes the non-GAAP financial measures defined below as part of its internal reviews for purposes of monitoring, evaluating and forecasting the Company's financial performance, communicating operating results to the Company's Board of Directors and assessing related employee compensation measures. As a result of the Tax Act's reduction of a substantial portion of the future tax benefits of the Company's stock option program as well as 2017 being the first year in which these excess tax benefits were reflected in income under GAAP, the Company has now excluded the excess tax benefit of stock option exercises in the presentation of its adjusted non-GAAP results for 2017. Management believes that such non-GAAP financial measures may be helpful to investors in assessing the Company's overall financial performance, trends and period-over-period comparative results. The following non-GAAP financial measures exclude income and expenses that are not directly related to the Company's operating performance during the periods presented. Items excluded in the non-GAAP financial measures in any period may consist of, without limitation, acquisition-related expenses, refinancing-related costs, and certain discrete tax items including but not limited to (i) the estimated one-time income tax charge related to the Tax Act and (ii) the excess tax benefits related to stock-based compensation that may arise during such periods. The following non-GAAP financial information is included for supplemental purposes only and should not be considered in isolation, as a substitute for or superior to the related U.S. GAAP financial measures. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are not necessarily the same or comparable to similar measures presented by other companies, as such measures may be calculated differently or may exclude different items.

The following are reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures for the periods presented:

(1)   For the three months ended December 31, 2017, diluted weighted average shares used to calculate the GAAP diluted net loss per common share excludes the anti-dilutive effect of 12.4 million common share equivalents due to the GAAP net loss position during the period. However, the Adjusted Diluted EPS as well as the diluted EPS impact of each non-GAAP reconciling item during this period was calculated using the diluted weighted average shares outstanding of 317.8 million shares.
