WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.--ITT Inc. (NYSE:ITT) today reported 2016 second-quarter financial results that reflect the benefits of a diversified portfolio and effective capital deployment in today’s challenging economic environment, as the impacts of continued weakness in the oil and gas and mining markets were partially offset by significant growth across our transportation businesses and the benefits of recent acquisitions.
“Over the past two years, ITT has consistently faced a challenging macroeconomic environment that has created persistent weakness in key end markets including oil and gas, mining and general industrial. During this time, we have proactively addressed these headwinds by leveraging our balanced and diverse portfolio to drive growth in more robust markets, improve productivity, proactively restructure to optimize our businesses, and deploy capital to position ITT for the long-term,” said ITT CEO and President Denise Ramos.
“The same was true in the second quarter as solid growth and share gains by our automotive brake pad business and the benefits from the Wolverine acquisition offset the impact of project activity demand and delayed customer maintenance at our Industrial Process business. And from an operational perspective, each of our four businesses delivered strong productivity gains, while our Industrial Process and Interconnect Solutions businesses also advanced the proactive resets of their operational structures.
“In the second quarter, we also continued to drive benefits from disciplined capital deployment as our Wolverine acquisition delivered strong results ahead of schedule while providing new opportunities for long-term transportation platform growth. The development of our North American automotive brake pad facility and related new platform wins are also progressing nicely ahead of schedule. And, as it relates to returns to shareholders, we executed $20 million of share repurchases in the second quarter, and are announcing up to an additional $50 million of discretionary repurchases that are expected by the end of the year, primarily depending on the actionability of acquisitions.”
2016 Second-Quarter Results
On a GAAP basis, revenue was flat at $626 million due to strong transportation growth, including the incremental benefits from our Wolverine acquisition, which offset project declines in global oil and gas and mining markets, softness in the chemical and industrial markets, and unfavorable foreign exchange. GAAP segment operating income decreased 20 percent to $72 million due to higher restructuring and realignment costs, as well as a trade name impairment. GAAP EPS decreased to $0.36 due to a significant prior-year asbestos-related benefit, higher restructuring and realignment costs, and tax items.
On an adjusted basis, organic revenue (defined as total revenue excluding foreign exchange, acquisition and divestiture impacts) declined 6 percent due to weakness across global flow markets that was partially offset by strong growth in global transportation markets. Adjusted segment operating income declined 4 percent to $92 million reflecting productivity and restructuring benefits that were offset by negative impacts from lower high-margin, aftermarket volumes; increased strategic investments; and pricing pressure in Motion Technologies and Industrial Process. Adjusted EPS decreased 3 percent to $0.67 reflecting lower adjusted segment operating income and a higher effective tax rate that were partially offset by lower corporate costs.

2016 Second-Quarter Business Segment Results
All quarterly results are compared with the respective prior-year periods.
Industrial Process designs and manufactures industrial pumps and valves for the oil and gas, chemical, mining and industrial markets.
- Total revenue decreased 26 percent to $214 million, with organic revenue down 22 percent. Both measures reflect the impact of weakness in the oil and gas and mining markets on our project pumps and aftermarket businesses, which was partially offset by improvements in short-cycle baseline pumps and valves. Total revenue also includes the impact of unfavorable foreign exchange.
- GAAP operating income decreased 85 percent to $6 million, and adjusted segment operating income decreased 41 percent to $24 million. Both measures reflect lower volumes across key end markets, which were partially offset by the benefits of productivity and restructuring actions. GAAP operating income also includes higher restructuring costs and a trade name impairment recorded in the second quarter related to weakness in the oil and gas market.
Motion Technologies designs and manufactures braking technologies, shock absorbers and specialized sealing solutions for the automotive and rail markets.
- Total revenue increased 41 percent to $260 million, and organic revenue increased 15 percent. Both measures reflect significant share gains and market growth in global automotive brake pads in both the OEM and aftermarket due to OEM market share gains in each of our key geographies of Europe, China and North America; strong aftermarket activity; and automotive market growth. Total revenue also includes incremental revenue from the 2015 acquisition of Wolverine Advanced Materials and the impact of favorable foreign exchange.
- GAAP operating income increased 32 percent to $49 million, and adjusted segment operating income increased 35 percent to $50 million. Both increases reflect higher volume, benefits from productivity actions and favorable impacts from the acquisition of Wolverine Advanced Materials, which were partially offset by unfavorable impacts from pricing pressures.
Interconnect Solutions designs and manufactures connectors and interconnects for the oil and gas, transportation and industrial, and aerospace and defense markets.
- Total revenue decreased 5 percent to $79 million, and organic revenue declined 6 percent. Both decreases reflect weakness in the global oil and gas market that was partially offset by gains in the aerospace and defense market. Total revenue includes the modest impact of favorable foreign currency exchange.
- GAAP operating income increased to $5 million and adjusted segment operating income decreased 2 percent to $5 million. Both measures reflect the benefits of improved operations and productivity and restructuring actions, which were offset by the unfavorable impacts of volume, mix and pricing. GAAP operating income benefited from lower restructuring costs compared to the prior year.
Control Technologies designs and manufactures products including fuel management, actuation, and noise and energy absorption components for the aerospace and industrial markets, as well as aerospace environmental control system components.
- Total revenue was flat at $75 million and organic revenue increased 2 percent, reflecting growth in aerospace and defense, which was offset by softness in global industrial markets driven by energy market dynamics. Total revenue growth was unfavorably impacted by prior-year revenue from a divested industrial product line.
- GAAP operating income decreased 2 percent to $12 million and adjusted segment operating income increased 4 percent to $13 million, reflecting the benefits of favorable productivity and restructuring actions. GAAP operating income also includes realignment costs related to the recent Hartzell acquisition.
The company is lowering its previously announced full-year 2016 GAAP and organic revenue guidance. GAAP revenue is now expected to be down 3 percent to down 5 percent, and organic revenue is expected to be down 7 percent to down 9 percent, primarily due to negative impacts from weaker than expected aftermarket activities and lower project revenues due to customer delays at Industrial Process, partially offset by incremental growth in automotive due to greater visibility in the aftermarket.
The company is also lowering its GAAP and adjusted EPS guidance primarily due to its revised volume expectations for the second half of the year at Industrial Process. As a result, the company now expects the GAAP EPS guidance range to be $1.40 to $1.62 and the adjusted EPS guidance range to be $2.34 to $2.46 with a mid-point of $2.40.

|Key Performance Indicators and Non-GAAP Measures|
|Management reviews a variety of key performance indicators including revenue, segment operating income and margins, earnings per share, order growth, and backlog, among others. In addition, we consider certain measures to be useful to management and investors when evaluating our operating performance for the periods presented. These measures provide a tool for evaluating our ongoing operations and management of assets from period to period. This information can assist investors in assessing our financial performance and measures our ability to generate capital for deployment among competing strategic alternatives and initiatives, including, but not limited to acquisitions, dividends and share repurchases. These metrics, however, are not measures of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for measures determined in accordance with GAAP. We consider the following non-GAAP measures, which may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies, to be key performance indicators for purposes of our reconciliation tables.|
|Organic Revenues and Organic Orders are defined as revenues and orders, excluding the impacts of foreign currency fluctuations, acquisitions and divestitures. Divestitures include sales of portions of our business that did not meet the criteria for presentation as a discontinued operation. The period-over-period change resulting from foreign currency fluctuations is estimated using a fixed exchange rate for both the current and prior periods. Management believes that reporting organic revenue and organic orders provides useful information to investors by helping identify underlying growth trends in our business and facilitating easier comparisons of our revenue performance with prior and future periods and to our peers.|
|Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Segment Operating Income and Adjusted Segment Operating Margin are defined as total operating income and segment operating income, adjusted to exclude special items that include, but are not limited to, restructuring and realignment costs, certain asset impairment charges, repositioning costs, certain acquisitions-related expenses, and other unusual or infrequent operating items. Special items represent significant charges or credits that impact the current results, which management views as unrelated to the Company's ongoing operations and performance. Adjusted segment operating margin is defined as adjusted segment operating income divided by total revenue. We believe that adjusted segment operating income is useful to investors and other users of our financial statements in evaluating ongoing operating profitability, as well as in evaluating operating performance in relation to our competitors.|
|Adjusted Income from Continuing Operations, Adjusted EPS and Adjusted EPS Guidance are defined as income from continuing operations attributable to ITT Inc. and income from continuing operations attributable to ITT Inc. per diluted share, adjusted to exclude special items that include, but are not limited to, asbestos-related costs, repositioning costs, restructuring and realignment costs, certain asset impairment charges, certain acquisition-related expenses, income tax settlements or adjustments, and other unusual and infrequent non-operating items. Special items represent significant charges or credits, on an after-tax basis, that impact current results, which management views as unrelated to the Company's ongoing operations and performance. We believe that adjusted income from continuing operations is useful to investors and other users of our financial statements in evaluating ongoing operating profitability, as well as in evaluating operating performance in relation to our competitors.|
|Adjusted Free Cash Flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures, adjusted for cash payments for restructuring and realignment actions, repositioning costs, net asbestos cash flows and other significant items that impact current results which management views as unrelated to the Company's ongoing operations and performance. Due to other financial obligations and commitments, including asbestos, the entire free cash flow may not be available for discretionary purposes. We believe that adjusted free cash flow provides useful information to investors as it provides insight into the primary cash flow metric used by management to monitor and evaluate cash flows generated by our operations.|
