FMC Technologies Reports Fourth Quarter 2012 Diluted Earnings per Share of $0.50

- Record full year Subsea Technologies orders of $4.6 billion

HOUSTON, Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FMC Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: FTI) today reported fourth quarter 2012 revenue of $1.8 billion, up 23 percent from the prior-year quarter.  Diluted earnings per share were $0.50 compared to $0.41 in the prior-year quarter. This included a charge related to the 2012 Multi Phase Meters earn-out adjustment of $17.5 million or $0.07 per share.

Total inbound orders were $1.9 billion and included $1.4 billion in Subsea Technologies' orders. Backlog for the Company was $5.4 billion, including Subsea Technologies' backlog of $4.6 billion.

Full Year 2012 Results

Total Company revenue for 2012 was $6.2 billion, and operating profit was $784.7 million.  The full year 2012 diluted earnings per share were $1.78.

"We are pleased to report record full year subsea revenue and operating profit," said John Gremp, Chairman and CEO of FMC Technologies. "For 2013, we expect to see continued revenue and earnings growth within Subsea Technologies."

"Surface Technologies international surface wellhead business delivered its strongest quarter. We expect this solid performance in the international market to continue into 2013, while the timing of the recovery in the North American market remains uncertain."

Review of Operations – Fourth Quarter 2012

Subsea Technologies

Subsea Technologies' fourth quarter revenue was $1.2 billion, up 28 percent from the prior-year quarter.  

Subsea Technologies' operating profit more than doubled from the prior-year quarter to $151.2 million due to volume growth and improved performance.

Subsea Technologies' inbound orders in the fourth quarter were $1.4 billion and backlog was $4.6 billion.

Surface Technologies

Surface Technologies' fourth quarter revenue was $443.7 million, up 19 percent from the prior-year quarter driven by higher volume in surface wellhead and the inclusion of revenue from our Pure Energy Services Ltd. acquisition completed in October 2012. 

Surface Technologies' operating profit decreased 15 percent from the prior-year quarter to $64.6 million in the fourth quarter as the result of reduced fluid control and surface wellhead activity in North America.

Surface Technologies' inbound orders for the fourth quarter were $388.8 million and backlog was $500.8 million.

Energy Infrastructure

Energy Infrastructure's fourth quarter revenue was $166.6 million, up 10 percent from the prior-year quarter.

Energy Infrastructure's operating profit increased 13 percent from the prior-year quarter to $22.8 million in the fourth quarter driven by improved project performance.

Energy Infrastructure's inbound orders for the fourth quarter were $148.6 million and backlog was $298.0 million.

Corporate Items

Corporate expense in the fourth quarter was $11.4 million, an increase of $0.3 million from the prior-year quarter. Other revenue and other expense, net, was $40.0 million, an increase of $24.9 million from the prior-year quarter. This was largely due to an increase of $17.2 million from the prior-year quarter related to the charge associated with the earn-out for the acquisition of Multi Phase Meters and a charge associated with the change to the Norway pension of $8.6 million.

The Company ended the quarter with net debt of $1.3 billion. Net interest expense was $10.7 million in the quarter.

The Company repurchased approximately 927,000 shares of common stock in the quarter, at an average cost of $42.21 per share.

Depreciation and amortization for the fourth quarter was $46.9 million, up $13.1 million from the sequential quarter. Capital expenditures for the fourth quarter were $122.9 million.

The Company recorded an effective tax rate of 31.8 percent for the fourth quarter.

Summary and Outlook

FMC Technologies reported fourth quarter diluted earnings per share of $0.50.

Total inbound orders of $1.9 billion in the fourth quarter included $1.4 billion in Subsea Technologies' orders. The Company's backlog stands at $5.4 billion, including Subsea Technologies' backlog of $4.6 billion.

For 2013, we expect increasing Subsea Technologies revenue and margins and continued solid performance in international surface wellhead, offset by a challenging North American land market.

The Company's guidance for 2013 diluted earnings per share is a range of $2.05 to $2.25.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics t...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
