THIRD QUARTER 2018 RECORD RESULTS

REPORTED BY AMPHENOL CORPORATION

 

Wallingford, Connecticut.  October 24, 2018.  Amphenol Corporation (NYSE: APH) reported today GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share (“EPS”) for the third quarter 2018 of $1.01 compared to $0.88 for the comparable 2017 period.  GAAP Diluted EPS for the third quarter 2018 includes an excess tax benefit of approximately $7 million ($0.02 per share) related to stock options exercised during the quarter compared to approximately $17 million ($0.05 per share) for the comparable 2017 period.  Excluding the effect of this item, Adjusted Diluted EPS

1 for the third quarter 2018 was a record $0.99 compared to $0.83 for the third quarter of 2017.  Sales for the third quarter 2018 were a record $2.129 billion compared to $1.841 billion for the comparable 2017 period. Currency translation had the effect of decreasing sales by approximately $16 million in the third quarter of 2018 compared to the 2017 period.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, GAAP Diluted EPS was $2.76 compared to $2.39 for the comparable 2017 period.  GAAP Diluted EPS for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, includes an excess tax benefit of approximately $14 million ($0.04 per share) related to stock options exercised for the nine months ended September 30, 2018.   GAAP Diluted EPS for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, includes an excess tax benefit of approximately $46 million ($0.14 per share) partially offset by a charge for acquisition-related transaction costs of approximately $4 million ($0.01 per share).  Excluding the effect of these items, Adjusted Diluted EPS for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 was $2.72 and $2.26, respectively.  Sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 were $5.977 billion compared to $5.067 billion for the 2017 period.  Currency translation had the effect of increasing sales by approximately $87 million for the first nine months of 2018 compared to the 2017 period.

 

Amphenol President and Chief Executive Officer, R. Adam Norwitt, stated, “We are pleased to close the third quarter 2018 well above the high end of our guidance, with record sales and Adjusted Diluted EPS in the quarter of $2.129 billion and $0.99, respectively.  Compared to the third quarter of 2017, sales increased 16%, driven primarily by strong organic growth across most of the Company’s diversified end markets, including mobile devices, military, IT and data communications, mobile networks, commercial air, industrial, and automotive, 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.”

 

“The Company’s Adjusted Diluted EPS growth of 19% in the quarter was driven by our superior operating execution, as reflected in the Company’s achievement of another record operating margin of 20.9%.  I am very proud of our organization as we continue to execute extremely well.”

   

“Operating cash flow in the quarter was a strong $339 million, a clear confirmation of the quality of the Company’s earnings. The Company continues to deploy its financial strength in a variety of ways to increase shareholder value.  This included the purchase during the third quarter of 2018 of 0.4 million shares of the Company’s stock under our $2 billion 3-year open market stock repurchase plan”. 

 

“We are very pleased with the Company’s superior performance in the continued strong demand environment.  Nevertheless, there remain uncertainties in the geopolitical environment, in particular related to global trade policy. Considering this environment and based on current currency exchange rates, we expect fourth quarter 2018 sales in the range of $2.063 billion to $2.103 billion and Adjusted Diluted EPS in the range of $0.96 to $0.98.  For the full year 2018, we now expect to achieve sales in the range of $8.040 billion to $8.080 billion, an increase over 2017 of 15%, as well as Adjusted Diluted EPS in the range of $3.68 to $3.70, an increase over 2017 of 18% to 19%.  This new guidance represents a year over year organic sales growth of approximately 12% and is an increase from our prior guidance for the full year 2018 of sales in the range of $7.820 billion to $7.900 billion and Adjusted Diluted EPS in the range of $3.57 to $3.61.”
