SARASOTA, Fla., July 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Roper Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: ROP), a leading diversified technology company, reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Second quarter GAAP and adjusted revenue increased 22% to $1.59 billion, while organic revenue increased 7%. GAAP and adjusted gross margin were 65.1%, expanding 40 basis points. GAAP diluted earnings per share (“DEPS”) was $2.69, a 29% increase, and adjusted DEPS was $3.76, a 28% increase.

EBITDA increased 26% to $579 million and EBITDA margin expanded 110 basis points to 36.4%. GAAP operating cash flow was $426 million. Adjusted free cash flow increased 30% to $409 million.

“Our businesses delivered excellent results in the second quarter, with 22% revenue growth, 26% EBITDA growth, and continued strong cash conversion,” said Neil Hunn, Roper’s President and CEO. “Organic revenue grew 7% with broad-based contributions from each of our four segments, including strong organic growth across our portfolio of software businesses. Our solid cash flow performance allowed us to reduce debt by approximately $375 million in the second quarter, bringing our total leverage reduction to $1.4 billion since completing our 2020 acquisitions."

"Our outstanding first half performance was driven by accelerating recurring revenue growth, broadly improving end-market conditions, and ongoing benefits from the enhanced quality of our portfolio. Given the positive momentum across our businesses, we are increasing our full year 2021 guidance and expect double-digit organic revenue growth for the second half of the year," concluded Mr. Hunn.

Increasing 2021 Guidance

The Company now expects full year adjusted DEPS of $15.00 - $15.20, compared to previous guidance of $14.75 - $15.00.

For the third quarter of 2021, the Company expects adjusted DEPS of $3.80 - $3.84.

The Company’s guidance excludes the impact of unannounced future acquisitions or divestitures.

The information provided in this press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. These forward-looking statements may include, among others, statements regarding operating results, the success of our internal operating plans, and the prospects for newly acquired businesses to be integrated and contribute to future growth, profit and cash flow expectations. Forward-looking statements may be indicated by words or phrases such as "anticipate," "estimate," "plans," "expects," "projects," "should," "will," "believes," "intends" and similar words and phrases. These statements reflect management's current beliefs and are not guarantees of future performance. They involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. Such risks and uncertainties include any ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business, operations, financial results and liquidity, which will depend on numerous evolving factors which we cannot accurately predict or assess, including: the duration and scope of the pandemic, new variants of the virus and the distribution and efficacy of vaccines; any negative impact on global and regional markets, economies and economic activity; actions governments, businesses and individuals take in response to the pandemic; the effects of the pandemic, including all of the foregoing, on our customers, suppliers, and business partners, and how quickly economies and demand for our products and services recover after the pandemic subsides. Such risks and uncertainties also include our ability to identify and complete acquisitions consistent with our business strategies, integrate acquisitions that have been completed, realize expected benefits and synergies from, and manage other risks associated with, the newly acquired businesses. We also face other general risks, including our ability to realize cost savings from our operating initiatives, general economic conditions and the conditions of the specific markets in which we operate, changes in foreign exchange rates, difficulties associated with exports, risks associated with our international operations, cybersecurity and data privacy risks, including litigation resulting therefrom, risks related to political instability, armed hostilities, incidents of terrorism, public health crises (such as the COVID-19 pandemic) or natural disasters, increased product liability and insurance costs, increased warranty exposure, future competition, changes in the supply of, or price for, parts and components, environmental compliance costs and liabilities, risks and cost associated with litigation, including asbestos related litigation, potential write-offs of our substantial intangible assets, and risks associated with obtaining governmental approvals and maintaining regulatory compliance for new and existing products. Important risks may be discussed in current and subsequent filings with the SEC. You should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements.
