CEO Comment

“We had a very strong quarter in our Power Systems segment, with both sales and earnings up significantly compared to the first quarter of the prior year due to strong demand for military marine engines and aftermarket parts and services. We also saw year-over-year strength in food & pharma and petrochem in Sealing. These positive results were more than offset by unexpected softness in Engineered Products’ auto and general industrial businesses due to weakness in Europe and Asia, and by the anticipated year-over-year declines in Sealing related to a softer semiconductor market, last year’s exit from the industrial gas turbine business, and timing-related differences in shipment patterns and product mix,” said Steve Macadam, Chief Executive Officer. “Given the weaker than expected demand in Engineered Products, we are implementing a variety of countermeasures to adjust our cost structure and limit the impact of the softness in this segment.”

2019 Outlook and Guidance

“We currently anticipate a relatively strong second quarter and are adjusting full-year EBITDA guidance to $224 to $232 million to reflect the impact of the first quarter, currency-related EDF loss provision. This translates to an adjusted diluted earnings per share outlook of $4.25 to $4.52 for the year,” said Mr. Macadam.

Full-year guidance excludes changes in the number of shares outstanding, impacts from future acquisitions and acquisition-related costs, restructuring costs, incremental impacts of tariffs and trade tensions on market demand and costs subsequent to the end of the first quarter, the impact of foreign exchange rate changes subsequent to the end of the first quarter, and environmental and legacy litigation charges.

Sales and Segment Profit

During the first quarter, growth in Power Systems was more than offset by a combination of: i) unexpected weakness in Asian and European markets within Engineered Products, ii) anticipated market headwinds in semiconductor, iii) negative translation impact due to the stronger dollar, and iv) the 2018 exit from the industrial gas turbine business in Sealing Products, resulting in first quarter sales decreasing 2.3% compared to the same period of 2018. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange translation, sales for the quarter declined by 0.3% compared to the first quarter of 2018.

Segment profit in the first quarter was down 20.0% year-over-year primarily as a result of the aforementioned factors. Excluding the impact of costs related to acquisition expenses, foreign exchange translation, the change in the loss reserve due to foreign exchange on the EDF contract in the Power Systems segment, and restructuring charges, total segment profit was 8.9% lower compared to total segment profit in the first quarter of last year.

Capital Allocation

During the first quarter, the company invested $10.4 million in facilities, equipment, and software compared to $15.2 million during the same period of 2018. The company paid a $0.25 per share quarterly dividend with a total value of $5.4 million. The company also repurchased approximately 36,000 shares at a cost of $2.4 million.

Segment Highlights

Sealing Products

  • Sales decreased 3.2% in the first quarter versus the prior-year period due primarily to softness in the semiconductor market and the 2018 exit from the industrial gas turbine business. This decline was partially offset by strength in the food & pharma and petrochemical markets. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange translation, sales decreased 1.8% compared to the prior-year period.
  • Segment profit decreased 12.2% in the first quarter versus the prior-year period, driven primarily by unfavorable volume and timing-related mix, partially offset by lower SG&A costs. Excluding the impact of restructuring costs, acquisition-related costs, and unfavorable foreign exchange translation, segment profit decreased 6.7% compared to the prior-year period.

Engineered Products

  • Sales decreased 7.5% in the first quarter versus the prior-year period, primarily due to foreign exchange translation and weakness in Asia and Europe. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange translation, sales decreased 2.6% compared to the prior-year period due to the aforementioned weakness in Asia and Europe.
  • Segment profit decreased 56.9% in the first quarter versus the prior-year period, primarily due to lower sales volume and higher SG&A expenses. Excluding the impact of restructuring costs, acquisition-related expenses, and unfavorable foreign exchange translation, segment profit decreased 49.4% compared to the prior-year period.

Power Systems

  • Sales increased 10.0% in the first quarter versus the prior-year period due to strong military marine engine and aftermarket parts and services sales, partially offset by lower sales to the power generation market.
  • Segment profit increased 67.5% in the first quarter versus the prior-year period primarily due to the increase in higher-margin aftermarket parts and service sales and reduced SG&A costs. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange on the EDF contract, which had a negative impact of $0.9 million in the first quarter of 2019 and a positive impact of $1.7 million in the first quarter of 2018, segment profit increased 225.7%.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains financial measures that have not been prepared in conformity with GAAP. They include adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, as well as segment adjusted EBITDA and segment adjusted EBITDA margin. Tables showing the effect of these historical non-GAAP financial measures are attached to the release. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted diluted earnings per share anticipated for full year 2019 are calculated in a manner consistent with the historical presentation of these measures in the attached tables. Because of the forward-looking nature of these estimates, it is impractical to present quantitative reconciliations of such measures to comparable GAAP measures, and accordingly no such GAAP measures are being presented. These estimates exclude changes in the number of shares outstanding, impacts from future acquisitions and acquisition-related costs, restructuring costs, incremental impacts of tariffs and trade tensions on market demand and costs subsequent to year-end, the impact of foreign exchange rate changes subsequent to year-end, and any litigation or environmental charges. Management believes these non-GAAP metrics are commonly used financial measures for investors to evaluate the company’s operating performance, and when read in conjunction with the company’s consolidated financial statements, present a useful tool to evaluate the company’s ongoing operations and performance from period to period. In addition, these are some of the factors the company uses in internal evaluations of the overall performance of its businesses. Management acknowledges that there are many items that impact a company’s reported results and the adjustments reflected in these non-GAAP measures are not intended to present all items that may have impacted these results. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements in this press release that express a belief, expectation or intention, as well as those that are not historical fact, are forward-looking statements under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. They involve a number of risks and uncertainties that may cause actual events and results to differ materially from such forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: general economic conditions in the markets served by our businesses, some of which are cyclical and experience periodic downturns; prices and availability of raw materials; the impact of fluctuations in relevant foreign currency exchange rates; unanticipated delays or problems in introducing new products; the incurrence of contractual penalties for the late delivery of long lead-time products; announcements by competitors of new products, services or technological innovations; changes in our pricing policies or the pricing policies of our competitors; and the amount of any payments required to satisfy contingent liabilities related to discontinued operations of our predecessors, including liabilities for certain products, environmental matters, employee benefit obligations and other matters. Our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our most recent Form 10-K, describe these and other risks and uncertainties in more detail. We do not undertake to update any forward-looking statements made in this press release to reflect any change in management's expectations or any change in the assumptions or circumstances on which such statements are based.

In January 2019, we adopted a new accounting standard that requires us to recognize an asset and liability for operating leases that were previously not recorded on the balance sheet. We had approximately $30.0 million of assets recorded in other assets, and liabilities of $10.1 million reflected in accrued expenses and $20.1 million in other liabilities at March 31, 2019 that were not required to be recorded at December 31, 2018.

Additionally, in January 2019 we adopted a new accounting standard that allowed for the reclassification of disproportionate income tax effects ("stranded tax effects") resulting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act from accumulated other comprehensive loss to retained earnings. We made an adjustment reclassifying a net tax benefit of $11.5 million from accumulated other comprehensive loss to retained earnings.

Management of the Company believes that it would be helpful to the readers of the financial statements to understand the impact of certain selected items on the Company's reported net income and earnings per share, including items that may recur from time to time. The items adjusted for in this schedule are those that are excluded by management in budgeting or projecting for performance in future periods, as they typically relate to events specific to the period in which they occur. This presentation enables readers to better compare EnPro Industries, Inc. to other diversified industrial manufacturing companies that do not incur the sporadic impact of restructuring activities, costs associated with previously disposed of businesses, or other selected items. Management acknowledges that there are many items that impact a company's reported results and this list is not intended to present all items that may have impacted these results.

The restructuring costs, environmental reserve adjustment and other costs associated with previously disposed businesses, and pension (non-service cost) are included as part of other operating expense and other expense.

The adjusted income tax expense presented above is calculated using a normalized company-wide effective tax rate excluding discrete items of 29.0%. Per share amounts were calculated by dividing by the weighted-average shares of diluted common stock outstanding during the periods.
