CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SPX Corporation (NYSE:SPXC) today reported results for the fourth quarter and the year ended December 31, 2017.

Gene Lowe, President and CEO, said “I am very pleased with our company’s strong financial performance in 2017, which was driven by a significant increase in Detection & Measurement revenues and strong margin improvement in our Engineered Solutions segment, associated with the repositioning of our process cooling business. In South Africa, we remain on track to substantially complete our role in the projects next year, and we are reducing our expectations for future cash usage associated with South Africa to $25-$30 million.”

Mr. Lowe continued, “Our 2018 guidance reflects our expectations for another year of significant growth in adjusted EPS to a range of $2.03-$2.18. With our strong balance sheet and solid operational and cash flow trends, we are well positioned to increase our level of investment in initiatives to drive sustainable double-digit earnings growth. We are raising our long-term targets for capital available to deploy through 2020 by 50%, to more than $600 million, and are raising our 2020 target for Adjusted EPS to a range of $2.65-$2.90, from $2.25-$2.50 previously.”

HVAC

Revenue for Q4 2017 was $161.2 million, compared with $159.1 million in Q4 2016, an increase of 1.3%. Excluding a 0.8% increase related to currency fluctuation, organic revenue* increased 0.5% primarily reflecting an increase in sales of cooling products, partially offset by a decline in heating products.

Segment income in Q4 2017 was $26.6 million, or 16.5% of revenue, compared with $31.6 million, or 19.9% of revenue in Q4 2016. The decline in segment income margins of approximately 340 basis points was driven by a less profitable sales mix and lower fixed cost absorption due to lower sales volumes of heating products. A charge associated with legal matters also negatively affected Q4 segment margins, but was a non-recurring item.

Full-year revenue increased modestly to $511.0 million in 2017, from $509.5 million in 2016, due primarily to stronger HVAC cooling shipments partially offset by a decline in heating product sales. Segment income margins decreased 120 basis points to 14.5% of revenues.

Detection & Measurement

Revenue in Q4 2017 was $75.3 million, compared with $58.6 million in Q4 2016, an increase of 28.5%. Excluding a 1.7% increase related to currency fluctuation, organic revenue* increased 26.8% reflecting an increase across all product lines with particular strength in fare collection systems and communication technologies products.

Segment income in Q4 2017 was $18.4 million, or 24.4% of revenue, compared with $14.4 million, or 24.6% of revenue, in Q4 2016. Higher segment income was driven by the revenue increase noted above.

Full-year revenue increased 15.0% to $260.3 million in 2017, from $226.4 million in 2016, due primarily to stronger sales of fare collection systems and communication technologies products. Segment income margins increased 440 basis points to 24.4% of revenues.

Engineered Solutions

Revenue in Q4 2017 was $150.5 million, compared with $177.6 million in Q4 2016, a decrease of 15.3%.
The decrease was driven primarily by a $23.4 million, or 13.2%, reduction in revenue associated with a charge related to the South African projects, which is discussed further below, and a decline in organic revenue* of 2.7% driven primarily by the business model shift the company has been executing in process cooling, partially offset by higher transformer revenues.

Segment loss in Q4 2017 was $20.5 million, compared with segment income of $8.8 million, or 5.0% of revenue in Q4 2016. The decline in segment income was driven by a $29.9 million charge associated with our South African projects.

Full-year revenue declined 11.1% to $654.5 million in 2017, from $736.4 million in 2016, due primarily to a reduction in revenue of $36.9 million associated with South African project charges. A segment loss of $12.6 million in 2017, compared to segment income of $17.3 million in 2016, was due primarily to South African project charges of $52.8 million in 2017.

Engineered Solutions (Core)

Excluding the results of the South African projects, Engineered Solutions recorded Core revenue* in Q4 2017 of $159.3 million, compared with $159.8 million in Q4 2016, a decrease of 0.3%. Excluding the effect of currency fluctuations, organic revenue* declined 0.6% due primarily to the business model shift in process cooling.

Core income* in Q4 2017 was $12.3 million, or 7.7% of revenue, compared with $13.5 million, or 8.4% of revenue, in Q4 2016. The reduction in Core income* and 70 basis points decline in Core income margin* were primarily due to a less favorable product mix.

Full-year Core revenue* declined 4.2% to $625.4 million in 2017 from $653.1 million in 2016, due primarily to the business model shift the company has been executing in process cooling. Segment income margins* increased 230 basis points to 7.2% of revenues.

South African Projects

During Q4 2017, the company recorded a charge of $29.9 million to revise the amount of expected revenue and costs on the projects in South Africa, which resulted in a reduction in revenue of $23.4 million and an increase in cost of $6.5 million. Additionally, the company recognized a net tax benefit of $65.9 million associated with the write off of historical investments in its South African holding company for US tax purposes.

When developing projections of future net cash usage associated with South Africa, the company considers a number of potential factors. Based on current projections, and a larger tax benefit than had previously been assumed, the company is reducing its expectations for net cash usage through completion of the projects to $25 to $30 million, and continues to anticipate substantial completion of its role in the projects by the end of 2019.

Revenue attributable to the large South African projects for Q4 2017 was negative $8.8 million, compared with revenue of $17.8 million in Q4 2016. Losses for these projects recorded in our Engineered Solutions segment in Q4 2017 were $32.8 million, compared with a loss of $4.7 million in Q4 2016.

Financial Update:

As of December 31, 2017, SPX had total outstanding debt of $356.8 million and total cash of $124.3 million. During the full-year 2017, SPX generated net operating cash from continuing operations* of $54 million, including net cash usage associated with South Africa of $49.5 million, which is net of a tax benefit. Capital expenditures for continuing operations were $11 million. Net leverage as calculated under the company’s new bank credit agreement was 1.5x, compared with 2.1x at the end of Q3 2017.

2018 Guidance:

SPX is targeting 2018 Core revenue* in a range of $1.35 to $1.40 billion with Core segment income margin* of 14.0-14.5%. Adjusted operating income margin* is expected to be approximately 10%. Adjusted earnings per share* is expected to be in a range of $2.03 to $2.18.

Segment performance, on a year-over-year basis, is expected to be as follows:

Revenue Segment Income Margin %
HVACOrganic growth* rate within long-term range of 2.0%-4.0% Approximately 100 basis point increase
Detection & MeasurementOrganic growth* rate within long-term range of approximately 2.0%-6.0% Approximately 50 to 100 basis point increase
Engineered Solutions (Core)*Segment (core) revenue decline* in high-single digits %; modest growth in transformer revenue; organic decline* in process cooling resulting from operating model changes Approximately 80-130 basis point increase

Non-GAAP Presentation: The results and guidance in this release include non-GAAP financial measures, including “Core” results, “organic revenue increase (decrease),” “adjusted operating income (loss),” and “adjusted earnings (loss) per share.” To provide clarity to its operating results, the company reports “Core” results, which exclude the effect of the South African projects, and separately reports on the progress and results associated with the South African projects. Additionally, 2017 Core segment income and Engineered Solutions (Core) income also exclude a gain related to a contract settlement within our Engineered Solutions segment. Other items adjusted out of operating income and earnings per share consist of a loss on the refinancing of the senior credit agreement and gain on interest rate swaps in Q4 2017, non-service pension items, the previously discussed net tax benefit associated with South Africa recorded in Q4 2017, and various other tax items in 2017 and 2016, non-cash impairment charges on intangible assets recorded in Q1 and Q4 2016, the gain, and the adjustments thereto, on the sale of Dry Cooling that were recorded during each of the first three quarters of 2016, and a loss on early extinguishment of debt that was recorded in Q3 2016.
