Emerson Electric Co Chief Executive David Farr said on Tuesday that "everything is on the table" as the industrial products company takes a top-to-bottom look at its cost structure and business units. Emerson has been under pressure from hedge fund D.E. Shaw & Co to cut costs and even split up the company. Farr said, however, that D.E. Shaw's candidate for Emerson's board of directors, Mark Blinn, leap-frogged over two other candidates being considered.
(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Emerson Electric Co. may have dodged a proxy fight, but it can’t avoid an earnings slump.The maker of air-conditioner components and automation equipment said Tuesday that it would add the former chief executive officer of Flowserve Corp. to its board and pledged to complete a review of its operations by February. The moves are meant to be a balm for activist investor D.E. Shaw & Co., which has called for more aggressive cost cuts, corporate governance improvements and a breakup. A lack of tangible commitments and deadlines in Emerson’s agreement to consider the activist’s recommendations likely contributed to a notably feisty letter from D.E. Shaw last month that blasted what it described as a bloated budget, including a corporate aviation department with no fewer than eight jets, a helicopter and its own intern.Emerson’s new board member, Mark Blinn, was CEO of Flowserve from 2009 to 2017. He’s not a household name, and Flowserve underperformed the S&P 500 Index during his tenure, but he was one of four candidates D.E. Shaw recommended, according to Bloomberg News. As such, the activist said Tuesday that it would back the company’s slate. According to D.E. Shaw, Emerson has also committed to reviewing how it pays its executives and will seek shareholder approval to amend its charter so that directors are elected annually. There was no update on those corporate jets in the earnings materials released Tuesday morning, although a conference call is scheduled for later this afternoon.Emerson’s concessions to D.E. Shaw are wise; it’s not in a position to pick a fight now. Also on Tuesday, the company released disappointing guidance for its 2020 fiscal year and predicted the coming U.S. presidential election, continued trade tensions and increased restructuring by manufacturers would leave investment decisions stalled. “We are planning for a challenging economic environment,” CEO David Farr said in the news release. This was a notably more downbeat outlook on the economy than other industrial companies have given this earnings season and contrasts with Parker-Hannifin Corp.’s prediction last week that its own sales slump would bottom out in the middle of its 2020 fiscal year. Emerson’s guidance for $3.48 to $3.72 in adjusted earnings per share implies a decline compared with last year’s numbers on the same basis. Sales may slump as much as 2%, excluding the impact of currency swings and M&A. With numbers like that, Emerson’s goal of achieving $4.50 in EPS by 2021 would be a significant stretch. Emerson said it will “reset” its long-term guidance as part of its February update. What’s troubling is that Emerson’s 2020 outlook doesn’t appear to reflect many benefits from the $95 million it spent cutting costs over the past year to adjust its operations to the downturn, Gordon Haskett analyst John Inch wrote in a report on Tuesday. That’s key because cost cuts sit at the crux of D.E. Shaw’s argument for a higher stock price. Analysts have pushed back on D.E. Shaw’s estimate of more than $1 billion in excess costs at Emerson, noting that some of the activist investor’s margin comparisons are unfair because many of the company’s rivals strip out restructuring, pension expenses and other expenses. In response, Emerson provided additional details about its pension and stock compensation costs for its most recent results. But it also moved to an adjusted earnings outlook after previously giving its forecast on a GAAP basis except in certain circumstances. The company says this is because 2020 restructuring actions will be determined as part of the board’s review and the guidance will be updated in February to reflect that. Let’s hope that’s true and that D.E. Shaw’s push doesn’t have the unfortunate side effect of yet another industrial company becoming addicted to earnings adjustments.To contact the author of this story: Brooke Sutherland at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Daniel Niemi at email@example.comThis column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Brooke Sutherland is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering deals and industrial companies.

Emerson Electric Co. on Tuesday announced it was expanding its board of directors, adding former Flowserve CEO Mark Blinn in a move that received praise from the activist investor moving to break up the company. Blinn has more than 20 years of experience operating multi-industrial businesses and as "a breadth of knowledge in energy and automation end markets," Emerson CEO and Chairman David N. Farr said in a news release. D.E. Shaw is pushing to break up Emerson into two separate companies: an industrial automation company and a climate technology-focused company, while targeting what it's described as "inefficient and insufficiently focused" efforts to contain costs, estimating the manufacturer can save over $1 billion annually.
Emerson Electric Co said on Tuesday it named Mark Blinn to its board, bowing to pressure from activist shareholder D.E. Shaw, which has called for a breakup of the U.S. factory automation equipment maker. The New York-based hedge fund, which owns a more than 1% stake in the Ferguson, Missouri-based company, wants Emerson to split into two businesses - the industrial automation business and the climate technology-focused unit. The hedge fund has said the move could unlock more than $20 billion worth of shareholder value.

As Tiger Woods staged his dramatic comeback at Augusta National Golf Club earlier this year, most of Emerson Electric Co's fleet of luxury corporate jets swooped in. By the time Woods sealed his fifth Masters victory on April 14, Emerson pilots had landed 13 times at the airport during the four-day tournament. Emerson, which is in the vital but unglamorous business of making products such as measurement and control systems used by manufacturing companies, is now taking heat over its ownership of eight aircraft.
