SPX FLOW Announces Preliminary Third Quarter 2016 Financial Results

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SPX FLOW, Inc. (NYSE: FLOW) announced today preliminary financial results for the third quarter ended October 1, 2016.

The company expects revenue for the third quarter of 2016 to be approximately $467 million, compared with the previous guidance range of $490 to $510 million. The company also expects GAAP EPS in the range of ($0.15) to ($0.10), as compared with the previous guidance range of ($0.65) to ($0.55) per share, due primarily to a $0.57 per share non-cash tax benefit recorded in the quarter related to a tax incentive associated with its expansion in Poland. This tax incentive was previously anticipated to be recorded in the fourth quarter.

On an adjusted basis, operating income* in the third quarter is expected to be modestly below the guidance range of $35 to $45 million and adjusted EPS* is expected to be in the range of $0.30 to $0.35 per share, as compared with the previous guidance range of $0.40 to $0.50

These preliminary financial results represent the most current information available to management and are subject to change as the company completes its quarterly close process, including review procedures of its independent external auditor.

"Our preliminary third quarter results reflect a deceleration of short cycle Industrial orders at the outset of Q3 and delayed shipments in our Power and Energy segment. These challenges were partially offset by solid progress on cost savings achieved in conjunction with our global realignment program," said Marc Michael, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Michael continued, "During the quarter, orders and backlog declined sequentially by 6% and 2%, respectively, primarily reflecting lower levels of original equipment orders in energy markets and lower orders for systems in food and beverage markets. In light of our Q3 preliminary results and order trends, we are currently reassessing our fourth quarter expectations. We plan to provide revised guidance for the fourth quarter and full year 2016 on our third quarter earnings call scheduled for November 2, 2016."

On Wednesday, November 2, 2016, SPX FLOW will release its third quarter 2016 financial results.
