Market Overview

Second Quarter 2018 Record Results Reported by Amphenol Corporation

Share:

Amphenol Corporation (NYSE:APH) reported today GAAP Diluted Earnings Per
Share ("EPS") for the second quarter 2018 of $0.91 compared to $0.80 for
the comparable 2017 period. GAAP Diluted EPS for the second quarter 2018
includes an excess tax benefit of approximately $3 million ($0.01 per
share) related to stock options exercised during the quarter compared to
approximately $21 million ($0.07 per share) for the comparable 2017
period. In addition, the second quarter 2017 included a charge for
acquisition-related transaction costs of approximately $4 million ($0.01
per share). Excluding the effect of these items, Adjusted Diluted EPS1
for the second quarter 2018 was a record $0.90 compared to $0.74
for the second quarter of 2017. Sales for the second quarter 2018 were a
record $1.981 billion compared to $1.667 billion for the comparable 2017
period. Currency translation had the effect of increasing sales by
approximately $40 million in the second quarter of 2018 compared to the
2017 period.

For the six months ended June 30, 2018, GAAP Diluted EPS was $1.75
compared to $1.51 for the comparable 2017 period. GAAP Diluted EPS for
the six months ended June 30, 2018, includes an excess tax benefit of
approximately $7 million ($0.02 per share) related to stock options
exercised for the six months ended June 30, 2018 compared to
approximately $29 million ($0.09 per share) for the comparable 2017
period. Excluding the effect of these items and the previously mentioned
acquisition-related charge in the 2017 period, Adjusted Diluted EPS for
the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 was $1.73 and $1.43,
respectively. Sales for the six months ended June 30, 2018 were $3.848
billion compared to $3.227 billion for the 2017 period. Currency
translation had the effect of increasing sales by approximately $100
million for the first six months of 2018 compared to the 2017 period.

Amphenol President and Chief Executive Officer, R. Adam Norwitt, stated,
"We are pleased to close the second quarter 2018 well above the high end
of our guidance with record sales and Adjusted Diluted EPS in the
quarter of $1.981 billion and $0.90, respectively. Compared to the
second quarter 2017, sales increased 19%, driven primarily by strong
organic growth across most of the Company's diversified end markets,
including mobile devices, military, industrial, commercial air, mobile
networks, automotive, and IT and data communications, together with
contributions from the Company's successful acquisition program. The
Company continues to expand its growth opportunities through a deep
commitment to developing enabling technologies for customers in all
markets, an ongoing strategy of market and geographic diversification,
as well as an active and successful acquisition program. As part of that
program, we are excited to have closed on two acquisitions in late June
2018. First, the Company acquired All Sensors Corporation, a supplier of
high technology pressure sensors for industrial applications, with
annual sales of approximately $15 million. In addition, the Company
acquired Ardent Concepts, Inc., a manufacturer of high-speed, high
reliability interconnect products used in the industrial and IT and data
communications markets, with annual sales of approximately $10 million."

"The Company's Adjusted Diluted EPS growth of 22% in the quarter was
driven by our superior operating execution, as reflected in the
Company's achievement of a record operating margin in the second quarter
of 20.6%. I am very proud of our organization as we continue to execute
extremely well."

"Operating cash flow in the quarter was $265 million, which was strong
in particular given the Company's higher than normal tax-related
payments in the quarter resulting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The
Company continues to deploy its financial strength in a variety of ways
to increase shareholder value. This included the purchase during the
second quarter of 2018 of 3.1 million shares of the Company's stock
under our $2 billion 3-year open market stock repurchase plan."

"While we are pleased with the current strong demand environment, there
are still many uncertainties in the market, in particular related to
global trade policy. Considering this environment and based on current
currency exchange rates, we expect third quarter 2018 sales in the range
of $1.980 billion to $2.020 billion and Adjusted Diluted EPS in the
range of $0.91 to $0.93. For the full year 2018, we now expect to
achieve sales in the range of $7.820 billion to $7.900 billion, an
increase over 2017 of 12% to 13%, as well as Adjusted Diluted EPS in the
range of $3.57 to $3.61, an increase over 2017 of 14% to 16%. This
compares to our prior guidance for the full year 2018 of sales in the
range of $7.630 billion to $7.750 billion and Adjusted Diluted EPS in
the range of $3.49 to $3.55. This guidance does not reflect the
potential impact of any future changes in global trade policy."

"The electronics revolution continues to create exciting, long-term
growth opportunities for Amphenol. We are encouraged by the Company's
broad-based and strong results, and we remain confident for the future.
New applications and higher performance requirements continue to drive
increased demand for our broadened range of high technology products
across all our diversified end markets. Our ongoing actions to leverage
our competitive advantages and create sustained financial strength, as
well as our initiatives to expand our high technology product offering
both organically and through our successful acquisition program, have
created an excellent base for future performance. I am confident
in the ability of our outstanding, entrepreneurial management team to
dynamically adjust to the always changing environment, to continue to
generate strong profitability and to further capitalize on the many
opportunities to expand our market position."

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release may include forward-looking statements within the
meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, which
relate to future, not past, events and are subject to risks and
uncertainties. The forward-looking statements, which address the
Company's expected business and financial performance and financial
condition, among other matters, may contain words such as: "anticipate,"
"could," "continue," "expect," "estimate," "forecast," "ongoing,"
"project," "seek," "predict," "target," "will," "intend," "plan,"
"optimistic," "potential," "guidance," "may," "should," or "would" and
other words and terms of similar meaning. Forward-looking statements by
their nature address matters that are, to different degrees, uncertain,
such as statements about expected earnings, revenues, growth, liquidity
or other financial matters. Although the Company believes the
expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements, including
regarding the third quarter and full year 2018 sales expectations and
Adjusted Diluted EPS expectations, are based upon reasonable
assumptions, the expectations may not be attained or there may be
material deviation. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on
these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date on
which they are made.

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from these
forward-looking statements, include, but are not limited to, the
following: the Company's dependence on sales to the communications
industry, in which markets are dominated by large manufacturers and
operators who regularly exert significant pressure on suppliers such as
the Company; the Company's dependence on sales to the military market,
including the impact of reductions or changes in the defense budgets of
U.S. and foreign governments; the Company's ability to compete
successfully on the basis of technology innovation, product quality,
price, customer service and delivery time; the Company's ability to
continue to conceive, design, source and market new products, as well as
market acceptance of the Company's existing and future product lines,
for continued revenue growth; the Company's ability to access the
capital markets on favorable terms, including as a result of significant
deterioration of general economic or capital market conditions, or as a
result of a downgrade in the Company's credit rating; changes in
exchange rates of the various currencies in which the Company conducts
business, including possible currency devaluations; changes in interest
rates which could impact existing or future issuances of debt; changes
in tax laws, regulations and guidance, including related
interpretations, in the United States and foreign jurisdictions, such as
the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("Tax Act"); political, economic,
military and other risks in countries outside of the United States,
including political, economic, financial or other instability,
intergovernmental conflicts or actions, strikes or natural disasters;
the impact of general economic conditions, geopolitical conditions and
U.S. trade policies, legislation, treaties and tariffs, including those
affecting China, on the Company's business operations; difficulties and
unanticipated expenses in connection with purchasing and integrating
newly acquired businesses as part of the Company's growth strategy,
including the potential for the impairment of goodwill; the Company's
ability to obtain a consistent supply of materials, at stable pricing
levels, used in the Company's manufacturing processes, including
aluminum, steel, copper, titanium, metal alloys, gold, silver, certain
rare earth metals and plastic resins; litigation or environmental
matters including changes to laws and regulations that the Company may
be subject to; and cybersecurity threats or incidents that could arise.
Such forward-looking statements may also be impacted by, among other
things, clarifications to and additional guidance under the Tax Act.
More specifically, on December 22, 2017, the Tax Act was enacted and it
significantly revised U.S. corporate income tax law by, among other
things, reducing the U.S. corporate income tax rate to 21% and
implementing a modified territorial tax system that includes a one-time
transition tax on deemed repatriated earnings of foreign subsidiaries.
The provisional income tax charge recorded in the fourth quarter of 2017
incorporated assumptions made based upon the Company's current
interpretation of the Tax Act. As the Company receives additional
clarification and implementation guidance and as the interpretation of
the Tax Act evolves over time, the Company may record adjustments to
such charge in 2018.

A further description of these uncertainties and other risks can be
found in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended
December 31, 2017, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and the Company's
other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. These
or other uncertainties may cause the Company's actual future results to
be materially different than those expressed in any forward-looking
statements. The Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any
forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The financial statements included within this press release are prepared
in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the
United States of America ("GAAP"). This press release also contains
certain non-GAAP financial information, including Adjusted Operating
Income, Adjusted Operating Margin, Adjusted Net Income attributable to
Amphenol Corporation, Adjusted Effective Tax Rate and Adjusted Diluted
EPS (collectively, "non-GAAP financial measures"), which are intended to
supplement the reported GAAP results. Management utilizes these non-GAAP
financial measures as part of its internal reviews for purposes of
monitoring, evaluating and forecasting the Company's financial
performance, communicating operating results to the Company's Board of
Directors and assessing related employee compensation measures.
Management believes that such non-GAAP financial measures may be helpful
to investors in assessing the Company's overall financial performance,
trends and period-over-period comparative results. Non-GAAP financial
measures discussed within this press release exclude income and expenses
that are not directly related to the Company's operating performance
during the periods presented. Items excluded in the presentation of the
non-GAAP financial measures in any period may consist of, without
limitation, acquisition-related expenses, refinancing-related costs and
certain discrete tax items including but not limited to the excess tax
benefits related to stock-based compensation as well as the provisional
income tax charge recorded in 2017 related to the Tax Act and any
subsequent adjustments recorded in 2018 related to this charge.
Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly
comparable GAAP financial measures are included at the end of this press
release. However, such non-GAAP financial measures should not be
considered in isolation, as a substitute for or superior to the related
GAAP financial measures. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures
are not necessarily the same or comparable to similar measures presented
by other companies, as such measures may be calculated differently or
may exclude different items. The non-GAAP financial measures are defined
within the "Supplemental Financial Information" table at the end of this
press release and should be read in conjunction with the Company's
financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP.

(1)

While the terms "operating margin" and "effective tax rate" are not
considered GAAP financial measures, for purposes of this table, we
derive the reported (GAAP) measures based on GAAP results, which
serve as the basis for the reconciliation to their comparable
non-GAAP financial measure.
 

(2)

The definitions of non-GAAP financial measures used are as follows:
 

Adjusted Operating Income is defined as Operating Income
(as reported in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income),
excluding income and expenses that are not directly related to the
Company's operating performance during the periods presented.

 

Adjusted Operating Margin is defined as Adjusted Operating
Income (as defined above) expressed as a percentage of Net sales
(as reported in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income).

 

Adjusted Net Income attributable to Amphenol Corporation is
defined as Net Income attributable to Amphenol Corporation (as
reported in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income),
excluding income and expenses and their specific tax effects, that
are not directly related to the Company's operating performance
during the periods presented.

 

Adjusted Effective Tax Rate is defined as Provision for
income taxes (as reported in the Condensed Consolidated Statements
of Income) expressed as a percentage of Income before income taxes
(as reported in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income),
each excluding the income and expenses and their specific tax
effects that are not directly related to the Company's operating
performance during the periods presented.

 

Adjusted Diluted EPS is defined as diluted earnings per
share (as reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP), excluding income
and expenses and their specific tax effects, that are not directly
related to the Company's operating performance during the periods
presented. Adjusted Diluted EPS is calculated as Adjusted Net
Income attributable to Amphenol Corporation, as defined above,
divided by the weighted average outstanding diluted shares (as
reported in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income).

RECONCILIATIONS OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES -
GUIDANCE

(Unaudited)

(dollars in millions, except per share data)

 

Management utilizes the non-GAAP financial measures defined earlier as
part of its internal reviews for purposes of monitoring, evaluating and
forecasting the Company's financial performance, communicating operating
results to the Company's Board of Directors and assessing related
employee compensation measures. Management believes that such non-GAAP
financial measures may be helpful to investors in assessing the
Company's overall financial performance, trends and period-over-period
comparative results. The following non-GAAP financial measures exclude
income and expenses that are not directly related to the Company's
operating performance during the periods presented. Items excluded in
the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures in any period may
consist of, without limitation, acquisition-related expenses,
refinancing-related costs, and certain discrete tax items including but
not limited to (i) the excess tax benefits related to stock-based
compensation and (ii) the provisional income tax charge recorded in 2017
related to the Tax Act and any subsequent adjustments recorded in 2018
related to this charge. The following non-GAAP financial information is
included for supplemental purposes only and should not be considered in
isolation, as a substitute for or superior to the related U.S. GAAP
financial measures. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are
not necessarily the same or comparable to similar measures presented by
other companies, as such measures may be calculated differently or may
exclude different items. Such non-GAAP financial measures should be read
in conjunction with the Company's financial statements presented in
accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The following are reconciliations of current guidance for GAAP Diluted
earnings per share (Diluted EPS) to Adjusted Diluted EPS (non-GAAP) for
both the third quarter 2018 and the full year 2018:

         
GUIDANCE (1)
THIRD QUARTER 2018 FULL YEAR 2018
 
Diluted EPS (GAAP) $0.91 - $0.93 $3.59 - $3.63
 
Excess tax benefits related to stock-based compensation - ($0.02)
   
Adjusted Diluted EPS (non-GAAP) $0.91 - $0.93 $3.57 - $3.61
 

____________________

 
(1) Forward-looking Adjusted Diluted EPS included in our guidance
excludes certain income and expenses, described above, that are not
directly related to the Company's operating performance. The Company
includes such items in its guidance only to the extent that such
items have either (i) already been reflected in periods reported and
are therefore included in the forward-looking full-year period or
(ii) the Company reasonably expects to record them in the
forward-looking periods presented and such amounts are estimable. As
the Company has not identified any estimable items in the
forward-looking periods presented, the reconciling item shown above
for the full year 2018 guidance only reflects the impact of the
excess tax benefits related to stock-based compensation that were
recognized during the six months ended June 30, 2018.
