“During 2015 and into the fourth quarter, our end-markets deteriorated further than anticipated a year ago and we are not currently forecasting near-term improvement. However, Flowserve’s operating results for the fourth quarter were solid, which generated full year Adjusted EPS in-line with our third quarter guidance. SIHI, which was acquired in the 2015 first quarter, also delivered on our expectations for the year,” said Mark Blinn, Flowserve’s president and chief executive officer. “In light of current business conditions, we are using this as an opportunity to accelerate our longer-term plans by implementing key strategic and structural changes to our operating platform and cost structure, which we anticipate will enable continued success in varied market conditions.

“Following the significant progress we have made in our 2015 initiatives, we have expanded our previously announced $125 million realignment program to achieve further structural improvements to our operating platform. Beyond the approximate $80 million of 2015 expense recognized on the program, we now expect to invest an additional $270 million in identified initiatives through 2017, of which approximately $50 million will be below-the-line expenses. We believe the newly expanded program will achieve annualized cost reductions of approximately $215 million in total once fully implemented.

“Along with our strategic growth priorities, this enhanced realignment initiative reflects confidence in our ability to structurally improve, and increase efficiency within, our business. Our actions will be transformational, as we drive towards a significant increase in our manufacturing capabilities and labor hours in low cost regions, improving plant and machine utilization while reducing our manufacturing footprint by approximately 30 percent. Once implemented, our highly engineered manufacturing business is expected to derive the most benefit from these actions, with a more profitable installed base yielding increased future aftermarket opportunities. We expect Flowserve to emerge even stronger, in order to further capitalize on long-term growth and deliver meaningful shareholder value,” Blinn concluded.

Fourth Quarter 2015

For the fourth quarter of 2015, Flowserve announced Adjusted EPS of $0.89 on revenues of $1.21 billion, excluding SIHI’s contribution. Adjusted gross and operating margins were 33.5% and 14.9%, respectively. Fourth quarter Adjusted EPS includes $0.06 of reserves established for an at-risk customer and excludes the impact of realignment expense of $0.31, negative below-the-line currency impact of $0.06, discrete tax item of $0.02 and SIHI’s net loss of $0.01, partially offset by the reduction of contingent consideration for a 2013 acquisition of $0.05. On a reported basis, earnings for the fourth quarter were $0.54 per share.

Full Year 2015

For full year 2015, Flowserve announced Adjusted EPS of $3.07 on revenues of $4.56 billion, including SIHI’s contribution. Adjusted gross and operating margins were 34.8% and 15.2%, respectively. Full year Adjusted EPS includes $0.09 of allowance for doubtful accounts and reserves for an at-risk customer and excludes the impact of realignment expense of $0.45, SIHI net loss of $0.30, Venezuela currency remeasurement of $0.15, negative below-the-line currency impact of $0.11 and other discrete items totaling $0.06. On a reported basis, earnings for the full year were $2.00 per share. As of December 31, 2015, the company’s cash and cash equivalents were $366 million.

Realignment Programs

In full year 2015, Flowserve expensed approximately $80 million of its previously announced $125 million realignment program, including approximately $50 million in the fourth quarter. In addition, the company expensed approximately $31 million under its SIHI realignment program. The company today announced it is expanding the $125 million program, and anticipates approximately $270 million of additional charges through 2017, including approximately $50 million below the operating income line item. Including 2015 amounts, this combined $350 million program is expected to reduce the company’s cost structure by approximately $215 million annually when complete. Flowserve expects to recognize cost savings of $125 million during 2016 and $185 million in 2017.

*Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted Operating Margin exclude realignment charges, purchase price accounting charges and acquisition related costs

Reaffirms 2016 Guidance

Flowserve reaffirmed its 2016 Adjusted [2] EPS target range of $2.40 to $2.75 with expected revenues declining 7 to 14 percent year-over-year, including a forecasted 2 percent currency headwind. The company expects its 2016 Adjusted EPS to be weighted toward the second half of 2016, reflecting normal seasonality.

Increase in Quarterly Dividend

Flowserve announced today that its Board of Directors has authorized the payment of a quarterly cash dividend of $0.19 per share on the company's outstanding shares of common stock. This dividend represents a 5.6% increase compared to the $0.18 per share amount paid in January 2016.

The dividend is payable on April 8, 2016, to shareholders of record as of the close of business on March 25, 2016.

While Flowserve currently intends to pay regular quarterly cash dividends for the foreseeable future, any future dividends, whether at this $0.19 per share quarterly rate or otherwise, will be reviewed individually and declared by the Board at its discretion, dependent upon the Board's assessment of the company's financial condition and business outlook at the applicable time.

Mark Blinn, president and chief executive officer, as well as other members of the management team will be presenting.
