Crane Co. (NYSE:CR), a diversified manufacturer of highly engineered industrial products, reported third quarter 2020 GAAP earnings per diluted share (EPS) of $0.97, compared to $1.19 in the third quarter of 2019. Excluding Special Items, third quarter 2020 EPS was $1.05, compared to $1.40 in the third quarter of 2019. (Please see the attached Non-GAAP Financial Measures tables for a detailed reconciliation of reported results to adjusted measures.)

Third quarter 2020 sales were $735 million, a decline of 5% compared to the third quarter of 2019. The sales decline was comprised of a $104 million, or 13%, decline in core sales, partially offset by a $57 million, or 7%, benefit from acquisitions and $10 million, or 1%, of favorable foreign exchange. The core sales decline was attributable to COVID-19 related macroeconomic factors.

Third quarter 2020 operating profit was $85 million compared to $109 million in the third quarter of 2019. Operating profit margin was 11.6% compared to 14.2% in the third quarter of 2019.

(Please see the attached Non-GAAP Financial Measures tables for a detailed reconciliation of reported results to adjusted measures.)

Max Mitchell, Crane Co. President and Chief Executive Officer stated: "While uncertainty remains elevated, the year has progressed largely as we expected when we reset guidance in April. Our teams continue to execute extremely well in this challenging environment, and we are pleased with our third quarter results which were solid in light of current market conditions. We have further narrowed our guidance range to reflect that we now have only a few months left of the year, and we raised the midpoint of our guidance primarily to reflect operational outperformance year-to-date compared to our expectations, as well as some recent incremental strength at Crane Currency and Engineered Materials. I continue to remain highly confident in the strength and resilience of Crane's portfolio and in our long-term outlook as end markets continue to recover."

Updating Full Year Outlook

The Company's current and best estimate of full-year 2020 GAAP EPS is now $3.10-$3.35, compared to the prior range of $2.65-$3.45. Excluding Special Items, the Company's current and best estimate of full-year 2020 EPS is now $3.75-$4.00, compared to the prior range of $3.30-$4.10. We now expect a full-year 2020 core sales decline of approximately 17% to 19%, compared to our prior expectation of a decline in the range of 17% to 21%. Our revised outlook for full-year 2020 free cash flow (cash provided by operating activities less capital spending) is now $230-$260 million compared to our prior outlook for a range of $200-$250 million. (Please see the attached non-GAAP Financial Measures tables.)

We note that continued uncertainty regarding the potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on demand and operations poses unique and substantial challenges for normal forecasting methodologies, making it difficult to accurately project future financial results.

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Certain non-GAAP measures are provided in this presentation. Management believes that non-GAAP financial measures which exclude certain non-recurring items present additional useful comparisons between current results and results in prior operating periods. Specifically, management believes that, when considered together with reported amounts, these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors and management in understanding ongoing operations and by providing a clearer view of the underlying trends of the business. In addition, Free Cash Flow provides supplemental information to assist investors and management in analyzing the Company's ability to generate liquidity from its operating activities. The measure of Free Cash Flow does not take into consideration certain other non-discretionary cash requirements such as, for example, mandatory principal payments on the Company's long-term debt. Management uses non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating the Company's core operating results and financial performance. Non-GAAP financial measures, which may be inconsistent with similarly captioned measures presented by other companies, should be viewed as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, the Company's reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP.
