FMC Technologies Reports Third Quarter 2015 Diluted Earnings per Share of $0.61, excluding impairment and restructuring charges

- Quarterly Subsea Technologies inbound orders of $1.0 billion - Quarterly Subsea Technologies operating margins of 16.9 percent, excluding restructuring charges - High pressure/high temperature joint industry program expands to five deepwater operators - Company receives agreement to provide subsea multiphase pump - Forsys Subsea receives two integrated front-end engineering studies

HOUSTON, Oct. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- FMC Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:FTI) today reported third quarter 2015 revenue of $1.5 billion, down 22 percent from the prior-year quarter primarily due to the continued decline in the North American land market that severely impacts our Surface Technologies segment and the negative impact of the strengthening U.S. dollar in our Subsea Technologies segment. Diluted earnings per share were $0.35, which includes pre-tax impairment charges of $60.2 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, and total Company pre-tax business restructuring charges of $17.9 million, or $0.06 per diluted share.

Total inbound orders were $1.5 billion, including $1.0 billion in Subsea Technologies orders.  Backlog for the Company was $5.0 billion, including Subsea Technologies backlog of $4.3 billion.

According to John Gremp, Chairman and CEO of FMC Technologies, "The North American onshore market's prolonged decline negatively impacted our company's financial results. In response, we continued to take significant actions to reduce our costs."

He added, "Our Subsea Technologies segment delivered strong operating performance in the third quarter and we received two major awards resulting in another quarter of more than $1.0 billion in orders."

"We achieved several critical milestones this quarter, not only for our company, but for the industry. We reached an agreement with Shell to provide our first subsea multiphase pump. We added Chevron as the fifth operator in our joint industry program for standardizing high pressure/high temperature subsea systems. And, Forsys Subsea, our joint venture with Technip, received two integrated front-end engineering studies. These are tangible examples of how the industry is adopting standardization, innovative technology, and new business models to improve deepwater project economics," said Gremp.

Review of Operations – Third Quarter 2015

Subsea Technologies

Subsea Technologies third quarter revenue was $1.1 billion, down 16 percent from the prior-year quarter due to the strength of the U.S. dollar.  Excluding the negative impact of the strong U.S. dollar, total revenue was down less than four percent year-over-year.

Subsea Technologies operating profit decreased 16 percent from the prior-year quarter to $170.7 million, primarily due to $14.6 million of business restructuring costs. Excluding the negative impact of the strong U.S. dollar and the restructuring charges incurred in the current quarter, total operating profit was up approximately four percent year-over-year. 

Subsea Technologies operating margins were 16.9 percent, excluding the business restructuring charges.

Subsea Technologies inbound orders for the third quarter were $1.0 billion. Backlog was $4.3 billion, including a negative quarterly impact of translation to backlog of $344.7 million.

Surface Technologies

Surface Technologies third quarter revenue was $361.0 million, down 35 percent from the prior-year quarter due to much lower activity levels in the North American market.

Surface Technologies reported an operating loss of $22.5 million, when including impairment charges of $58.0 million primarily related to our Surface Technologies' Canadian operations and restructuring charges of $1.6 million related to all businesses. The impaired Canadian assets are linked to the 2012 acquisition of Pure Energy Services Ltd. and due to the prolonged decline in market activity.

Surface Technologies operating profit decreased 66 percent from the prior-year quarter to $37.1 million, excluding impairment and restructuring charges. The decrease was driven by the North American activity declines and less favorable pricing.

Surface Technologies operating margins were 10.3 percent, excluding the impairment and business restructuring charges.

Surface Technologies inbound orders for the third quarter were $398.1 million. Backlog was $495.0 million.

Energy Infrastructure

Energy Infrastructure third quarter revenue was $97.1 million, down 22 percent from the prior-year quarter primarily due to further activity decreases in our measurement solutions business.

Energy Infrastructure reported operating loss of $2.0 million compared to the prior year quarter profit of $5.1 million. The loss primarily resulted from reduced revenue and $1.7 million of additional business restructuring charges.

Energy Infrastructure inbound orders for the third quarter were $81.8 million and backlog was $172.8 million.

Corporate Items

Corporate expense in the third quarter was $14.7 million, a decrease of $1.4 million from the prior-year quarter.  Other revenue and other expense, net, decreased $13.2 million from the prior-year quarter to $21.9 million of expense, primarily due to a $20.9 million charge related to an intercompany foreign currency transaction in 2014. 

The Company ended the quarter with net debt of $583.2 million. Net interest expense was $8.1 million in the quarter.

The Company repurchased approximately 1.7 million shares of common stock at an average cost of $33.95 per share in the quarter.

Depreciation and amortization for the third quarter was $71.3 million and capital expenditures were $49.8 million.

The Company recorded an effective tax rate of 19.2 percent for the third quarter.

Summary and Outlook

FMC Technologies reported third quarter diluted earnings per share of $0.61, excluding impairment charges of $0.20 per diluted share and business restructuring charges of $0.06 per diluted share.

The Company recorded Subsea Technologies revenue of $1.1 billion with margins of 16.9 percent, excluding the business restructuring charges in the third quarter.

Total inbound orders of $1.5 billion in the third quarter included $1.0 billion in Subsea Technologies orders.  The Company continues to expect at least $3 billion of Subsea Technologies awards in 2015.

The Company's backlog stands at $5.0 billion, including Subsea Technologies backlog of $4.3 billion.
