FMC Technologies Reports First Quarter 2015 Diluted Earnings per Share of $0.63

04.21.2015

- Subsea Technologies revenue of $1.2 billion
- Subsea Technologies margins of 14.6%

HOUSTON, April 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- FMC Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:FTI) today reported first quarter 2015 revenue of $1.7 billion, down 7 percent from the prior-year quarter as stronger Subsea Technologies performance was offset by the continued strength of the U.S. dollar and the decline in the North American land market.  Diluted earnings per share were $0.63

Total inbound orders were $969.0 million and included $552.0 million in Subsea Technologies orders. Backlog for the Company was $5.5 billion, including Subsea Technologies backlog of $4.8 billion.

"We delivered solid first quarter earnings, largely the result of the continued strength of our Subsea Technologies performance," said John Gremp, Chairman, President, and CEO of FMC Technologies.  "We are leveraging our backlog and execution momentum, while taking actions in all of our businesses to strengthen our operating structure.  With our strong customer relationships, we expect to inbound at least $3 billion of subsea awards in 2015." 

Review of Operations - First Quarter 2015

Subsea Technologies

Subsea Technologies first quarter revenue was $1.2 billion, down 4 percent from the prior-year quarter due to the strength of the U.S. dollar.  

Subsea Technologies operating profit increased 19 percent from the prior-year quarter to $168.7 million, primarily due to improved execution and stronger project margins related to backlog conversion.    

Subsea Technologies inbound orders for the first quarter were $552.0 million and backlog was $4.8 billion.

Surface Technologies

Surface Technologies first quarter revenue was $446.3 million, down 7 percent from the prior-year quarter as increased activity in our non-North American surface wellhead business was more than offset by decreases in the North American market.

Surface Technologies operating profit decreased 28 percent from the prior-year quarter to $62.9 million driven by the North American activity declines.

Surface Technologies inbound orders for the first quarter were $326.3 million and backlog was $519.5 million.

Energy Infrastructure

Energy Infrastructure first quarter revenue was $100.9 million, down 31 percent from the prior-year quarter due to the absence of the Material Handling Products business which was sold in the second quarter of 2014 and reduced sales in all businesses within the segment.

Energy Infrastructure operating profit decreased 81 percent from the prior-year quarter to $2.9 million, primarily as a result of both reduced and delayed revenue.           

Energy Infrastructure inbound orders for the first quarter were $95.8 million and backlog was $173.1 million.

Corporate Items

Corporate expense in the first quarter was $16.3 million, an increase of $1.4 million from the prior-year quarter.  Other revenue and other expense, net, increased $6.7 million from the prior-year quarter to $26.4 million, due largely to foreign currency losses related to the strength of the U.S. dollar. 

The Company ended the quarter with net debt of $621.3 million.  Net interest expense was $7.3 million in the quarter.

The Company repurchased approximately 776,000 shares of common stock at an average cost of $39.75 per share in the quarter.

Depreciation and amortization for the first quarter was $57.8 million, down $1.3 million from the sequential quarter.  Capital expenditures for the first quarter were $86.7 million.

The Company recorded an effective tax rate of 20.0 percent for the first quarter largely due to less income subject to U.S. taxation rules.

Summary and Outlook

FMC Technologies reported first quarter diluted earnings per share of $0.63.

Total inbound orders of $969.0 million in the first quarter included $552.0 million in Subsea Technologies orders.  The Company's backlog stands at $5.5 billion, including Subsea Technologies backlog of $4.8 billion.

The Company expects to inbound at least $3 billion of Subsea Technologies awards in 2015.
