NORTH ANDOVER, Mass., Aug 02, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --

Watts Water Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: WTS) today announced results for the second quarter ended July 3, 2011. Net income per diluted share from continuing operations (EPS) for the second quarter of 2011 was $0.34. This represents a decrease of 42% as compared to $0.59 of EPS reported in the second quarter of 2010. Second quarter 2011 EPS includes a negative $0.16 impact for various special items, including restructuring and other charges of $0.10, of which $0.04 relates to Socla and $0.06 relates to approved programs for existing businesses, and acquisition accounting adjustments of $0.06, all related to the Socla acquisition. Adjusting for these items, second quarter 2011 adjusted EPS was $0.50, compared to second quarter 2010 adjusted EPS of $0.57, a decrease of 12%. Socla contributed $0.03 on an adjusted basis in the second quarter, with the underlying business contributing $0.47 on an adjusted basis in the second quarter of 2011 or 18% below adjusted EPS of $0.57 for the same period last year.

 

Sales for the second quarter of 2011 were $375.7 million, an increase of $51.7 million, or 16%, compared to the second quarter of 2010. Acquisitions, principally the Socla acquisition, accounted for $33.3 million of the increase, favorable foreign exchange accounted for $16.6 million of the increase, primarily due to the strengthening of the euro against the U.S. dollar, and $1.8 million of the increase was attributable to increased organic sales. Operating income in the second quarter of 2011 was $26.6 million, which yielded operating margins of 7.1%, compared to operating income in the second quarter of 2010 of $33.3 million, which yielded operating margins of 10.3%. On an adjusted basis, operating income in the second quarter of 2011 decreased by $0.7 million to $35.7 million from $36.4 million in the second quarter of 2010. Adjusted operating margins decreased by 1.7 percentage points to 9.5% in the second quarter of 2011, compared to 11.2% on an adjusted basis in the second quarter of 2010.

North American sales for the second quarter of 2011 increased $5.7 million to $212.0 million, compared to $206.3 million for the second quarter of 2010. This increase was due to acquired sales of $2.5 million an organic sales increase of $2.1 million and favorable foreign exchange movements, associated with the strengthening of the Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar of $1.1 million. Sales into the North American wholesale market increased organically by 3% during the second quarter as compared to the same period in 2010, primarily from increased sales in our plumbing and heating product lines, backflow product lines and drains product lines. Organic sales into the North American DIY home improvement market decreased 6% for the second quarter as compared to the second quarter of 2010 primarily due to decreased unit volume.

European sales for the second quarter of 2011 increased $45.7 million to $157.8 million, compared to $112.1 million for the second quarter of 2010. This increase was primarily due to acquired sales of $30.3 million and favorable foreign exchange movements associated with the strengthening of the euro versus the U.S. dollar of $15.2 million. Organic sales in Europe for the second quarter of 2011 were essentially flat with the second quarter of 2010 as an increase in the OEM market of 4% was offset by reduced sales into the European DIY market. The OEM sales increase was driven by stronger under floor radiant heating products sales in the German domestic and export markets, and the reduction in the DIY sales resulted primarily from a weak market in France, due to economic uncertainties.European sales represented approximately 42% and 35% of total Company sales in the second quarters of 2011 and 2010, respectively.

China sales for the second quarter of 2011 increased $0.3 million to $5.9 million compared to the second quarter of 2010. The increase was driven by acquired sales and favorable foreign exchange associated with the strengthening of the Chinese Yuan against the U.S. dollar.

In the second quarter of 2011, the Company recorded income of $0.05 per share in discontinued operations related to a reserve adjustment for the previously disclosed FCPA investigation. The adjustment reflects management's best estimate of a possible charge in connection with this matter based on ongoing discussions with SEC staff. There is no definitive agreement for resolution of this matter at this time.

Sales for the first six months of 2011 were $705.6 million, an increase of $62.3 million, or 10%, compared to the first six months of 2010, primarily from acquisitions and favorable foreign exchange. Sales grew organically by 1%.

David J. Coghlan, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Compared to the second quarter of 2010, our organic sales increased by 1%,with increased sales in the North American wholesale and European OEM markets being substantially offset by reduced North American and European DIY sales. In the US, we found comparisons with the second quarter and first half of 2010 difficult. Our DIY channel customers were building inventories in the first half of 2010 in anticipation of a better economic environment and we saw more activity in the residential markets as homebuyers were taking advantage of an expiring tax credit. In the current quarter, we saw housing starts at almost historically low levels and commercial activity still lagging. Many of the economic headwinds we have been experiencing continue to affect our results. Our adjusted operating margins decreased 1.7 percentage points to 9.5% in the second quarter of 2011. We were not able to fully recover the increased costs of commodities in Europe and in the DIY market in North America. Copper, our main raw material, remained at stubbornly high levels. Additional price increases were implemented in the latter portion of the second quarter in North America and Europe and the full impacts of those increases has yet to be realized. Regarding the Socla acquisition, we were quite pleased with its initial results, as the business delivered better than expected profits on an adjusted basis, due to solid sales volume."

Mr. Coghlan concluded, "Our days working capital, excluding the effect of the Socla acquisition, improved sequentially by 2 days due to better working capital management, while sales volume increased organically over the preceding quarter. We had free cash flow of $9.3 million in the first six months of 2011 as compared to free cash flow of $21.7 million for the same period of 2010. This decrease in free cash flow is partially due to an increase in inventory values which reflect higher commodity costs. At July 3, 2011, our net debt to capitalization ratio was 17.6%, compared to 5.2% at December 31, 2010. The increase was due to the cash utilized for, and debt incurred as part of, the Socla acquisition."

In this press release we refer to non-GAAP financial measures (including adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margins, adjusted net income from continuing operations, adjusted earnings per share, free cash flow, net debt to capitalization ratio and days working capital) and provide a reconciliation of those non-GAAP financial measures to the corresponding financial measures contained in our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. We believe that these financial measures are appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of our historical financial performance and future prospects. Operating income - as adjusted, adjusted operating margin, net income from continuing operations - as adjusted and diluted earnings per share - as adjusted eliminate certain expenses incurred in the periods presented that relate primarily to our global restructuring programs, impairment charges, significant legal settlements, significant termination benefits, due diligence costs, acquisition accounting costs, tax adjustments, other costs and related tax benefits. Management then utilizes these adjusted financial measures to assess the run-rate of the Company's continuing operations against those of comparable periods without the distortion of those factors. Free cash flow, net debt to capitalization ratio and days working capital, which are adjusted to exclude certain cash inflows and outlays, and include only certain balance sheet accounts from the comparable GAAP measures, are an indication of our performance in cash flow generation and also provide an indication of the Company's relative balance sheet leverage to other industrial manufacturing companies. These non-GAAP financial measures are among the primary indicators management uses as a basis for evaluating our cash flow generation and our capitalization structure. In addition, free cash flow is used as a criterion to measure and pay certain compensation-based incentives. For these reasons, management believes these non-GAAP financial measures can be useful to investors, potential investors and others. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the Company's measure of free cash flow, net debt to capitalization ratio and days working capital may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
