Wallingford, Connecticut.  April 22, 2020.  Amphenol Corporation (NYSE: APH) reported today GAAP diluted Earnings Per Share (“EPS”) for the first quarter 2020 of $0.79 compared to $0.87 for the comparable 2019 period.  GAAP diluted EPS for the first quarter 2020 included (i) a discrete tax benefit of approximately $20 million ($0.06 per share) related to the settlements of refund claims in certain non-U.S. jurisdictions and the resulting adjustments to deferred taxes and (ii) an excess tax benefit of approximately $5 million ($0.02 per share) related to stock options exercised during the quarter.  First quarter 2019 GAAP diluted EPS included acquisition-related expenses of approximately $17 million ($0.04 per share), partially offset by an excess tax benefit of approximately $7 million ($0.02 per share) related to stock options exercised during the quarter. Excluding the effect of these items, Adjusted Diluted EPS

1 for the first quarter 2020 was $0.71 compared to $0.89 for the first quarter 2019.


Sales for the first quarter 2020 were $1.862 billion compared to $1.959 billion for the comparable 2019 period. Currency translation had the effect of decreasing sales by approximately $19 million in the first quarter 2020 compared to the 2019 period.


Amphenol President and Chief Executive Officer, R. Adam Norwitt, stated, “The first quarter 2020 was significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Since the shutdown of Wuhan, China on January 23, Amphenol’s entire global organization has been managing through the extreme challenges created by the outbreak.  Starting in late January, our team in China successfully navigated a nearly three-week shutdown of all of their manufacturing operations, and were able to return to full production levels by the beginning of March.  As COVID-19 has spread around the world, our team continues to execute well amidst very challenging market conditions and quickly evolving government measures to control the pandemic, all while prioritizing the safety and health of our more than 75,000 employees worldwide.”


“Amidst this unprecedented crisis, we are proud to have closed the first quarter 2020 with sales, operating margins and Adjusted Diluted EPS reaching $1.862 billion, 17.0% and $0.71, respectively.  In addition, our orders in the first quarter reached a higher than originally expected $2.151 billion, driven in particular by higher demand from customers supporting expanded capacity of communications networks as well as for medical equipment.  Compared to the first quarter 2019, sales decreased by 5%, reflecting the sudden and severe slowdown in certain markets resulting from the outbreak as well as our limited ability to produce in China during the month of February and production limitations imposed in other parts of the world during the month of March.  Given the difficult environment created by the COVID-19 pandemic, our first quarter results were impressive and illustrate the significant benefits of the Company’s agile and entrepreneurial management team as well as our balanced end market and geographic diversity.”


“It is extremely rewarding that even in this difficult environment, the Company’s experienced management team reacted quickly to ensure that profitability, cash flow and liquidity remained strong.  Operating cash flow in the quarter was $384 million, a clear confirmation of the quality of the Company’s earnings.  In addition, out of an abundance of caution, at the end of the first quarter, the Company proactively drew down $1.25 billion from our existing $2.5 billion revolving credit facility, approximately half of which was allocated to repay existing maturities under our commercial paper programs. As a result, the Company finished the quarter in a very strong liquidity position, with $2.4 billion of cash on hand. The Company continues to deploy its financial strength in a variety of ways to increase shareholder value.  To that end, the Company purchased 2.7 million shares of its common stock in the quarter for approximately $257 million and paid dividends of approximately $74 million.”


“We are proud that the Company continues to execute well amidst the unprecedented challenges in the current environment. Such strong execution in difficult times has always been a hallmark of Amphenol’s performance.”


“As we look ahead, the overall demand and operating environment remains highly uncertain.  The full impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business will depend on many unpredictable future developments, including the length and severity of the crisis, potential additional government actions and the overall impact of the pandemic on the global economy, among many other factors.  As a result, until conditions become more predictable, we believe it is prudent to withdraw our full-year sales and EPS guidance, and we will not be providing a specific outlook for the coming quarter.  Given these dynamics, however, we expect sales and EPS in the second quarter of 2020 to be lower than the levels we achieved in the first quarter.”


“Despite the significant challenges in the current environment, we are encouraged by the platform of strength that has been created by the Company’s consistent superior  performance. We remain confident in the ability of our outstanding, entrepreneurial management team to dynamically adjust to the current market conditions, to continue to generate strong financial performance and to further capitalize on the many opportunities to expand our market position that exist in any economic cycle.  Most importantly, I am truly grateful to every one of our more than 75,000 employees around the world for their incredible efforts to protect the safety and health of our entire team and support our local communities, all while ensuring that our customers have a ready supply of our high-technology interconnect products, many of which are being used by our customers in the fight against the COVID-19 crisis.”

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from these forward-looking statements, include, but are not limited to, the following:  future risks and existing uncertainties associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, which continues to have a significant adverse impact on our operations including, depending on the specific location, full or partial shutdowns of our facilities as mandated by government decree, government actions limiting our ability to adjust certain costs, significant travel restrictions, “work-from-home” orders, limited availability of our workforce, supplier constraints, supply-chain interruptions, logistics challenges and limitations, and reduced demand from certain customers; uncertainties associated with a protracted economic slowdown that could negatively affect the financial condition of our customers; uncertainties and volatility in the global capital markets; political, economic, military and other risks in countries outside of the United States; the impact of general economic conditions, geopolitical conditions and U.S. trade policies, legislation, trade disputes, treaties and tariffs, including those affecting China, on the Company’s business operations; risks associated with the improper conduct by any of our employees, customers, suppliers, distributors or any other business partners which could impair our business reputation and financial results and could result in our non-compliance with anti-corruption laws and regulations of the U.S. government and various foreign jurisdictions; changes in exchange rates of the various currencies in which the Company conducts business; the Company’s ability to obtain a consistent supply of materials, at stable pricing levels; the Company’s dependence on sales to the communications industry, which markets are dominated by large manufacturers and operators who regularly exert significant pressure on suppliers, including the Company; changes in defense expenditures in 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 and performance, price, customer service and delivery time; the Company’s ability to continue to conceive, design, manufacture and market new products and upon continuing market acceptance of its existing and future product lines; difficulties and unanticipated expenses in connection with purchasing and integrating newly acquired businesses, including the potential for the impairment of goodwill and other intangible assets; events beyond the Company’s control that could lead to an inability to meet its financial covenants which could result in a default under the Company’s revolving credit facility; 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 interest rates; government contracting risks that the Company may be subject to, including laws and regulations governing performance of U.S. government contracts and related risks associated with conducting business with the U.S. government or its suppliers (both directly and indirectly); governmental export and import controls that certain of our products may be subject to, including export licensing, customs regulations, economic sanctions or other laws; cybersecurity threats or incidents that could arise on our information technology systems which could disrupt business operations and adversely impact our reputation and operating results and potentially lead to litigation and/or governmental investigations; changes in fiscal and tax policies, audits and examinations by taxing authorities, laws, regulations and guidance in the United States and foreign jurisdictions, including related interpretations of certain provisions of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017; any difficulties in protecting the Company’s intellectual property rights; and litigation, customer claims, product recalls, governmental investigations, criminal liability or environmental matters.  In addition, the extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to impact our business and financial results going forward will be dependent on future developments such as the length and severity of the crisis, the potential resurgence of the crisis, future government actions in response to the crisis and the overall impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy and capital markets, among many other factors, all of which remain highly uncertain and unpredictable.


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, 2019, 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 from those expressed in any forward-looking statements. The Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements except as required by law.
