ITW Reports Third Quarter 2013 Results

*Third quarter diluted EPS from continuing operations of $0.90 exceeds Company forecast midpoint of $0.88

GLENVIEW, Ill., Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Illinois Tool Works Inc. (NYSE: ITW) today reported third quarter diluted earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations of $0.90, two cents higher than the midpoint of the Company's forecast.  As noted in the Company's September 24, 2013 announcement, the third quarter forecasted EPS midpoint of $0.88 included a $0.14 reduction from the Industrial Packaging segment moving to discontinued operations and a $0.09 reduction related to a discrete tax charge.

Highlights for 2013 third quarter results versus the prior-year period included:

*Total Company operating revenues were $3.6 billion while operating income was $678 million. Excluding the impact of Decorative Surfaces 2012 results, total Company operating revenues grew 2.9 percent and operating income increased 8.4 percent.  Organic revenues grew 0.4 percent, with international organic revenues growing 2.9 percent and North American organic revenues declining 1.4 percent. Internationally, Asia Pacific organic revenues grew 6.9 percent, with China organic revenues increasing 21.5 percent.  In addition, European organic revenues grew 1.0 percent. The Company was faced with a difficult year-over-year comparison in its electronics assembly platform, which negatively impacted total Company organic revenue growth by 2.5 percent. Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP results, which exclude the 2012 impact of the divested Decorative Surfaces segment, are included in the attached exhibits.

*By segment, highlights included:

  • Automotive OEM's organic revenues increased 11.5 percent, with strong growth across all regions. By comparison, worldwide auto builds increased 4 percent in the quarter. Automotive OEM operating margins improved 200 basis points to 21.1 percent.
  • Food Equipment's organic revenues grew 4.4 percent, with across-the-board contributions from the North American and international equipment and service businesses. Food Equipment operating margins improved 90 basis points to 19.9 percent.
  • Construction Products organic revenues increased 3.3 percent due to 9.3 percent organic revenue growth in North America. Operating margins improved 250 basis points to 16.2 percent.

"We were pleased with our financial performance in the quarter and the progress we continue to make in executing our Enterprise initiatives," said Scott Santi, president and chief executive officer. "Third quarter operating margins of 19.0 percent were driven by an 80 basis point contribution from our enterprise initiatives.  On a year-to-date basis, free cash flow conversion was solidly above 100 percent of net income, and our adjusted after-tax return on average invested capital was 16.3 percent, up 110 basis points versus the same period last year.  In addition, we continued to make disciplined, return-oriented decisions with regard to capital allocation.  We completed two strategically targeted acquisitions in the quarter, and year-to-date we have returned nearly $1.6 billion to shareholders in the form of share repurchases and dividends."

The Company is now forecasting its full-year diluted income per share from continuing operations to be in a range of $3.56-$3.64. This EPS range assumes a full-year total revenue growth range of 1.0 percent to 2.0 percent. For the 2013 fourth quarter, the Company is forecasting diluted income per share from continuing operations to be in a range of $0.85-$0.93 and assumes a total revenue growth range of 2 percent to 5 percent.
