Kaydon Corporation Reports Second Quarter 2011 Results

ANN ARBOR, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kaydon Corporation (NYSE:KDN) today announced its results for the second fiscal quarter ended July 2, 2011.

“We continue to see strength in our diversified industrial end markets, notably industrial machinery, heavy equipment and medical. In addition, we are extremely pleased with the performance of HAHN, which we acquired in April, and expect considerable further opportunity as it contributes to our Velocity Controls’ product offering.”

Consolidated Results

Sales in the second fiscal quarter of 2011 were $122.0 million, compared to sales of $121.5 million in the second fiscal quarter of 2010. Strong industrial sales, including the results of HAHN-Gasfedern GmbH (“HAHN”) which we acquired on April 8, 2011, offset decreased wind energy sales and the absence of a key military sales program that benefited 2010.

Operating income was $20.4 million in the second quarter of 2011, compared to $26.3 million in the second quarter of 2010. Second quarter of 2011 results included $1.3 million of net costs associated with a previously announced manufacturing consolidation program, due diligence and one time acquisition costs, and a small curtailment gain. Adjusting for these items, operating income was $21.8 million in the second quarter of 2011. The second quarter of 2010 results also included $0.2 million of net costs associated with the manufacturing consolidation program and acquisition due diligence costs, primarily offset by curtailment gains associated with changes to certain postretirement benefit programs.

EBITDA was $27.9 million, or 22.8 percent of sales, during the second quarter of 2011, compared to $33.6 million, or 27.6 percent of sales, during the second quarter of 2010. Adjusting for the items noted above, EBITDA was $29.2 million, or 23.9 percent of sales, in the second quarter of 2011, and $33.8 million, or 27.8 percent of sales in the second quarter of 2010.

Net income for the second quarter of 2011 was $14.2 million, compared to net income of $17.8 million in the second quarter of 2010. Diluted earnings per share was $.43 in the second quarter of 2011 compared to diluted earnings per share of $.53 in the second quarter of 2010. Adjusting for the items noted above, net income for the second quarter 2011 was $15.1 million, or $.46 per share on a diluted basis, and $18.0 million, or $.54 per share on a diluted basis, for the second quarter of 2010.

The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2011 was 30.8 percent compared to 32.2 percent for the 2010 second quarter. The lower tax rate is principally due to the increasing percentage of earnings from international operations taxed at lower rates than earnings in the U.S. This shift is consistent with Kaydon’s articulated strategy of increasing its international operating presence.

This press release includes certain non-GAAP measures, including EBITDA, free cash flow, and as adjusted operating income, EBITDA, net income, and earnings per share – diluted. Readers should refer to the attached Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures exhibit for the reconciliations of the applicable GAAP measures to the non-GAAP measures presented.

Management Commentary

James O’Leary, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented “Our second quarter of 2011 continued the steady improvement experienced over the past eighteen months. Sales increased over both this year’s first quarter and the prior year’s second quarter as strength in our industrial businesses offset the expected declines in our renewable energy and military businesses. We expect continued improvement through the second half of 2011 as comparisons against 2010’s strong wind and military performances ease and the contribution from our industrial businesses increases.

“We continue to see strength in our diversified industrial end markets, notably industrial machinery, heavy equipment and medical. In addition, we are extremely pleased with the performance of HAHN, which we acquired in April, and expect considerable further opportunity as it contributes to our Velocity Controls’ product offering.

“While there remains a need for a clear, consistent national energy policy to support long term growth in renewable energy, we continue to see indications that the market has bottomed. Increased prequalification activity, notably quotations and prototypes, in addition to the continuing shift in global sentiment towards safer, renewable energy sources, such as that recently experienced in Germany, suggests that better times may be ahead.”

Segment Results and Review

Friction Control Products sales in the second quarter of 2011 were $65.8 million, compared to $79.7 million in the 2010 second quarter. The expected decline was attributable to decreased wind energy and military sales, as wind energy sales declined approximately $12 million compared to the second quarter of 2010. Management continues to expect annual wind energy sales of $60 to $65 million for 2011. Second quarter 2011 sales to industrial markets increased almost 15 percent compared to the second quarter of 2010.

Second quarter 2011 Friction Control Products operating income totaled $11.5 million, compared to $20.3 million in the prior second quarter. Costs related to the manufacturing consolidation program were $0.5 million in the second quarter of 2011 and $0.7 million in last year’s second quarter. Adjusting for these costs, operating income for Friction Control Products segment was $12.1 million, compared to $21.0 million in last year’s second quarter. This decline was attributable to the decreased wind energy and military sales as compared to strong results in the second quarter 2010.

Velocity Control Products sales in the second quarter of 2011 were $25.3 million, compared to $15.1 million in the second quarter of 2010. Operating income for this segment totaled $5.9 million in the second quarter of 2011, compared to $4.0 million earned in the 2010 second quarter, due to improved sales and the addition of HAHN. The second quarter of 2011 includes one time acquisition transaction and purchase accounting costs of $0.5 million. Adjusting for these costs, operating income for Velocity Control Products was $6.4 million in the second quarter of 2011 compared to $4.0 million in the second quarter of 2010. The 2011 quarter also included an investment in sales and marketing of $0.8 million to increase our global sales team and enhance our advertising plan to take advantage of the momentum this segment is currently experiencing, particularly with the addition of HAHN.

Other Industrial Products sales in the second quarter of 2011 were $30.9 million, compared to $26.7 million in the 2010 second quarter. Operating income equaled $4.4 million in the second quarter of 2011, compared to operating income of $2.8 million in the second quarter of 2010, due to improved sales across most of these businesses.

Order Activity

Orders were $111.5 million in the second quarter of 2011, compared to $108.2 million in the second quarter of 2010. Non-wind orders exceeded shipments by approximately 4 percent while wind orders were negligible. The Company expects more significant wind orders in the second half of the year as is historically the case. Backlog at July 2, 2011 was $196.4 million compared to $186.5 million at July 3, 2010 and $203.0 million at April 2, 2011, the end of first quarter 2011.

Financial Position and Free Cash Flow

Free cash flow, a non-GAAP measure defined by the Company, was $10.1 million in the second quarter of 2011, compared to $17.0 million in the second quarter of 2010.

On April 4, 2011, the Company paid common stock dividends of $.19 per share or an aggregate of $6.2 million. During the second quarter of 2011 the Company repurchased 385,000 shares of common stock for $14.2 million. Year-to-date share repurchases totaled 742,091 for $28.2 million. For the third quarter of 2011, the Company declared a dividend of $.20 per share, payable on October 3, 2011. This represents the fifth consecutive annual increase in quarterly dividends.

As of July 2, 2011, the Company had unrestricted cash totaling $223.3 million. The Company has a $250 million senior revolving credit facility with a syndicate of banks which provides for borrowings by the Company for working capital and other general corporate purposes, including acquisitions. The Company had no outstanding borrowings under this facility and no other debt outstanding as of July 2, 2011.
