Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results:

For the second quarter ended June 30, 2019, revenue was $1.8 billion, an increase of 0.7% over the prior year. The increase in the quarter was driven by organic growth of 2.9% and acquisition growth of 0.8%, partially offset by a 2.5% unfavorable impact from foreign exchange ("FX") and 0.5% due to dispositions. 

Earnings from continuing operations of $198.1 million included acquisition-related amortization costs of $26.2 million and rightsizing and other costs of $5.1 million, representing $0.18 and $0.03 of diluted earnings per share from continuing operations ("EPS"), respectively. Excluding these items, adjusted earnings from continuing operations for the quarter were $229.4 million (+15% over the comparable period in 2018), and adjusted EPS was $1.56 (+20% over the comparable period in 2018).

Year to Date 2019 Financial Results:

For the six month period ended June 30, 2019, revenue was $3.5 billion, an increase of 2.9% over the comparable period in the prior year. The increase was driven by organic growth of 5.5% and acquisition growth of 0.7% partially offset by a 3.0% unfavorable impact from FX and 0.3% due to dispositions.

Earnings from continuing operations of $303.8 million included acquisition-related amortization costs of $52.9 million and rightsizing and other costs of $8.2 million, representing $0.36 and $0.06 of EPS, respectively. In addition, the period included a $46.9 million, or $0.32 of EPS, non-cash after-tax loss on assets held for sale related to Finder Pompe S.r.l. (a supplier of pumps to the upstream oil & gas industry), which was sold on April 2, 2019. Excluding these items, adjusted earnings from continuing operations for the period were $411.8 million (+21% over the comparable period in 2018), and adjusted EPS was $2.80 (+27% over the comparable period in 2018).

Full Year 2019 Guidance Update:

Adjusted EPS guidance for full year 2019 was tightened toward the upper end of the previous range, to $5.75 to $5.85. Guidance for full year revenue growth remains unchanged.

Management Commentary:

Dover's President and Chief Executive Officer, Richard J. Tobin, said, "Our results for the second quarter reflect a continued constructive demand environment across a significant portion of our portfolio that, when coupled with our ongoing productivity improvement actions, drove a 190 bps increase in operating margins on a comparable basis.

"Our Fluids segment posted a solid quarter with organic growth of 7%, with our fueling & transport, pumps, and process solutions businesses each delivering significant improvements in operating margin. Engineered Systems' organic growth of 2% was primarily driven by the industrial platform, offsetting the expected lower activity in digital printing, which we expect to reaccelerate into the second half. Organic revenue in Refrigeration & Food Equipment was slower in the quarter principally as a result of reduced shipments of heat exchangers in Asia; we still expect the segment to end the year with positive organic growth and margin improvement over the prior year.

"Overall, on the back of a strong first half of the year, solid backlogs and continued execution towards margin expansion targets, we are tightening the range of our previous full year adjusted EPS guidance to $5.75 to $5.85."

Conference Call Information:

Dover will host a webcast and conference call to discuss its second quarter 2019 results at 10:00 A.M. Eastern Time (9:00 A.M. Central Time) on Thursday, July 18, 2019. The webcast can be accessed on the Dover website at dovercorporation.com. The conference call will also be made available for replay on the website.

Non-GAAP Disclosures

In an effort to provide investors with additional information regarding our results as determined by GAAP, Management also discloses non-GAAP information that Management believes provides useful information to investors. Adjusted earnings from continuing operations, adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations, free cash flow, and organic revenue growth are not financial measures under GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for earnings from continuing operations, diluted earnings per share from continuing operations, cash flows from operating activities, or revenue as determined in accordance with GAAP, and they may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. 

Adjusted earnings from continuing operations represents earnings from continuing operations adjusted for the effect of acquisition-related amortization, rightsizing and other costs, loss on assets held for sale, and the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. We exclude after-tax acquisition-related amortization because the amount and timing of such charges are significantly impacted by the timing, size, number and nature of the acquisitions the Company consummates. We exclude the other items because they occur for reasons that may be unrelated to the Company's commercial performance during the period and/or Management believes they are not indicative of the Company's ongoing operating costs or gains in a given period. Management believes this information is useful to investors to better understand the Company's ongoing profitability as it will better reflect the Company's core operating results, offer more transparency and facilitate easier comparability to prior and future periods and to its peers. Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations represents adjusted earnings from continuing operations divided by average diluted shares.

Free cash flow represents net cash provided by operating activities minus capital expenditures. Management believes that free cash flow is an important measure of operating performance because it provides management and investors a measurement of cash generated from operations that is available for mandatory payment obligations and investment opportunities, such as funding acquisitions, paying dividends, repaying debt and repurchasing our common stock.

Management believes that reporting organic revenue growth, which excludes the impact of foreign currency exchange rates and the impact of acquisitions and dispositions, provides a useful comparison of our revenue performance and trends between periods.
