Flow International Announces Fiscal 2014 Second Quarter Results

KENT, Wash., Dec. 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Flow International Corporation (Nasdaq:FLOW), the world's leading developer and manufacturer of industrial waterjet machines for cutting and cleaning applications, today reported results for its fiscal year 2014 second quarter ended October 31, 2013.

Flow reported revenues of $66.3 million for the quarter, compared to year-ago second quarter revenues of $67.0 million. The Company reported net income for the quarter of $2.1 million or $0.04 per share, compared to net income of $2.1 million or $0.04 per share in the year-ago quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $6.1 million or 9.2% of sales, compared to $6.0 million or 8.9% of sales for the year-ago quarter. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Net Income is provided in the accompanying financial tables.

"We are pleased to report results that are consistent with the year ago quarter in total revenue and profits," said Charley Brown, President and CEO. "We continue to expect closing the sale of Flow to American Industrial Partners in early 2014."

In light of the pending transaction with American Industrial Partners ("AIP"), the Company will not be holding a conference call to discuss these results.

In addition, the Company is in continued discussions with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") in connection with its proposed transaction with AIP, pursuant to the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended ("HSR Act"). To facilitate those discussions, AIP withdrew its initial notification filing and subsequently refiled with the FTC on November 27, 2013, which started a new 30-day waiting period, and provides the FTC additional time to complete its investigation. The Company and AIP will continue to work cooperatively with the FTC in connection with its review. Completion of the transaction remains subject to the approval of Flow's shareholders, regulatory approvals, and other customary closing conditions.

Operations Review for the Fiscal 2014 Second Quarter

  • Standard segment sales, which include sales of systems that do not require significant custom configuration as well as parts and services for those installed systems, were $57.8 million for the quarter, down $5.4 million from $63.2 million in the year-ago quarter.

Backlog for the Advanced segment was $14.8 million as of October 31, 2013 and will be realized over the next two to four quarters.
  • Aggregate gross profit margins were 38.8% of sales for the quarter, compared to 37.9% in the year-ago quarter.
  • Total operating expenses for the quarter were $21.7 million, compared to $21.5 million in the prior year period.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income, determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), excluding the effects of income taxes, depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, interest expense, and other non-cash charges, which includes such items as stock-based compensation expense, foreign currency gains or losses, and other non-cash allowable add backs pursuant to the Company's Facility Agreement.
Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and the presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. The items excluded from this non-GAAP financial measure are significant components of the Company's financial statements and must be considered in performing a comprehensive analysis of the overall financial results. The Company uses this measure, together with GAAP financial metrics, to assess its financial performance, allocate resources, evaluate the overall progress towards meeting its long-term financial objectives, and assess compliance with its debt covenants. The Company believes that this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors and analysts in allowing for greater transparency with respect to the supplemental information used in the Company's financial and operational decision making. The Company's calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be consistent with calculations of similar measures used by other companies.
