Crane Co. Reports 2017 Results and Updates 2018 Guidance

Highlights from Full Year 2017 Results and 2018 Guidance:
GAAP earnings per diluted share (EPS) of $2.84 compared to $2.07 in 2016. Excluding Special Items, EPS of $4.53 increased 7% compared to last year.
Record free cash flow (cash provided by operating activities less capital spending) of $269 million.
Revising 2018 GAAP EPS guidance range to $4.65-$4.85. Excluding Special Items, the new guidance range is $5.35-$5.55.
Guidance now includes the impact of the Crane Currency acquisition, the impacts of the 2017 U.S. tax reform legislation, a new repositioning program, and expenses associated with acceleration of growth investments enabled by tax reform.

STAMFORD, CONNECTICUT - January 29, 2018 - Crane Co. (NYSE: CR), a diversified manufacturer of highly engineered industrial products, reported full year and fourth quarter 2017 financial results, and provided an update on its 2018 outlook.

"We delivered three new records in 2017: adjusted EPS of $4.53, adjusted operating margins of 15.2%, and free cash flow of $269 million," said Max Mitchell, Crane Co. President and Chief Executive Officer. "I am very proud of our 2017 performance, and I have never been more excited about Crane's multi-year earnings outlook than I am today. Our core business is executing extremely well; the recently completed Crane Currency acquisition is off to a great start; the recent tax reform legislation will not only improve our profitability, but it will enable us to accelerate investments for future growth; and we continue to focus on margin improvement through productivity and certain new repositioning actions.

"While there is a lot of exciting activity in our core business, including strong execution on growth and productivity initiatives, several other developments are also contributing to our positive outlook. Earlier this month, we closed on the Crane Currency acquisition, the second largest transaction in Crane's history. Crane Currency is the fastest growing, fully integrated global currency provider in the global banknote supply and security industry, and it is an excellent fit to complement our expanding presence in the currency and payment markets, bringing proprietary and differentiated technology. We believe that the combined businesses will be stronger together, offering end-to-end currency and security solutions, from substrate manufacturing and banknote design and printing to micro-optics and banknote validation. The integration is well underway, and we expect Crane Currency to contribute $0.15 of adjusted EPS in 2018, growing to approximately $1.00 of EPS annually by 2021.

"We also view the recently enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) as a very favorable development with an annual EPS benefit of approximately $0.50. The TCJA should also improve our global competitiveness by enabling increased flexibility to deploy capital in the United States. Because of the benefits and related flexibility we expect from this legislation, we have decided to accelerate strategic growth investments across several of our businesses over the next two years. These investments will offset approximately $0.25 per share of the tax benefit in 2018, and then decline to approximately $0.15 in 2019, with the full $0.50 annual EPS benefit from the TCJA reading through by 2020.

"In addition, our relentless focus on continuously improving our operations has resulted in a significant opportunity to execute proactive facility consolidations within our Fluid Handling, Aerospace & Electronics, and Payment & Merchandising businesses. We believe that these actions will not only improve our cost position, but enable us to meet higher expected future demand and provide the footprint that best serves our customers. These actions should contribute approximately $0.10 of EPS, excluding

Special Items, in 2018, growing to an annualized EPS run-rate of approximately $0.35 by the end of 2020."

Mr. Mitchell concluded, "The growth potential of our core business, combined with the benefits from the Crane Currency acquisition, tax reform, accelerated growth investments, and repositioning activities, will position Crane for double-digit annual adjusted earnings growth for at least the next several years, with further upside possible from additional capital deployment. We also announced today that we are raising our dividend for the first time since 2014, further reflecting confidence in our outlook." (Please see the attached Non-GAAP Financial Measures tables.)

Fourth Quarter 2017 Results
The fourth quarter 2017 GAAP net loss was $0.48 per share, compared to a fourth quarter 2016 GAAP net loss of $1.09 per share. Fourth quarter 2017 results include: a tax charge of $87 million, or $1.44 per diluted share, related to the TCJA; an after-tax charge of $8 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, related to repositioning, net; and, an after-tax charge of $5 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, for M&A related items. Fourth quarter 2016 results include an after-tax net asbestos provision of $125 million, or $2.13 per diluted share. Excluding Special Items, fourth quarter 2017 EPS was $1.18, compared to $1.02 in 2016. (Please see the attached Non-GAAP Financial Measures tables.)

Fourth quarter 2017 sales were $714 million, up 5% compared to 2016. Core sales increased $13 million, or 2%, with $14 million, or 2%, of favorable foreign exchange, and a $5 million, or 1%, net acquisition benefit.

Fourth quarter 2017 operating profit was $91 million compared to an operating loss of $92 million in 2016. Excluding Special Items, fourth quarter 2017 operating profit was $109 million, an increase of 8% compared to 2016. (Please see the attached Non-GAAP Financial Measures tables.)

Full Year 2017 Results
Full year 2017 GAAP EPS was $2.84, compared to $2.07 in 2016. Full year 2017 results include: a tax charge of $87 million, or $1.44 per share, related to the TCJA; an after-tax charge of $8 million, or $0.13 per share, related to repositioning, net; and, an after-tax charge of $7 million, or $0.11 per share, for M&A related items. Full year 2016 results include an after-tax net asbestos provision of $125 million, or $2.11 per share, and a $3 million net after-tax legal settlement charge, or $0.05 per share. Excluding Special Items, 2017 EPS of $4.53 increased 7% compared to $4.23 in 2016. (Please see the attached Non-GAAP Financial Measures tables.)

Full year 2017 sales were $2.8 billion, up 1% compared to 2016. Core sales increased $31 million, or 1%, and net acquisitions contributed $14 million, partially offset by $7 million of unfavorable foreign exchange.

Full year 2017 operating profit was $402 million compared to $200 million in 2016. Excluding Special Items, full year 2017 operating profit was $423 million, an increase of 6% compared to $398 million in 2016. Full year 2017 adjusted operating margin of 15.2% increased 70 basis points compared to 14.5% in 2016. (Please see the attached Non-GAAP Financial Measures tables.)

Cash Flow and Other Financial Metrics
Cash provided by operating activities for full year 2017 was $318 million, flat compared to $318 million in 2016. Free cash flow (cash provided by operating activities less capital spending) was $269

4


million in 2017, compared to $267 million in 2016. The Company's cash position was $706 million at December 31, 2017, compared to $510 million at December 31, 2016. Total debt was $743 million at December 31, 2017, compared to $745 million at December 31, 2016. On January 10, 2018, Crane Co. acquired Crane Currency for $800 million on a cash free and debt free basis using a combination of short-term debt and cash on hand.

Tax Reform Bill Enabling Accelerated Growth Investments
On December 22, 2017, the TCJA was signed into law, significantly changing U.S. corporate tax law. As a result, the fourth quarter of 2017 included a one-time tax charge of $87 million related to both the remeasurement of U.S. deferred tax balances and to taxation of unremitted earnings of non-U.S. subsidiaries.

For 2018, we expect a GAAP tax rate of approximately 22%. Excluding Special Items, we expect a 2018 effective tax rate of approximately 22%, a decrease of approximately eight to nine percentage points compared to Crane's typical effective tax rate prior to the TCJA.

As a result of the tax savings and greater flexibility to repatriate foreign cash related to the TCJA, Crane Co. is accelerating growth investments across its businesses. On a pre-tax basis, these incremental growth investments are expected to be approximately $20 million in 2018 and $10 million in 2019.

Repositioning Initiatives
2018 benefits from repositioning actions in our Fluid Handling, Payment & Merchandising Technologies, and Aerospace & Electronics businesses are expected to be approximately $8 million, increasing to an annual run-rate of approximately $30 million by the end of 2020. Net pre-tax charges

5


associated with these repositioning activities are expected to be approximately $30 million through 2020, including the $13 million net charge in the fourth quarter of 2017 and $11 million expected during 2018.

Raising 2018 Guidance
On December 5, 2017, Crane Co. introduced preliminary 2018 full year earnings guidance of $4.85-$5.05 per diluted share, excluding any potential impact from the then-pending Crane Currency acquisition. (Please see the attached Non-GAAP Financial Measures tables.)

We now expect 2018 full year GAAP EPS of $4.65-$4.85. Excluding Special Items, we expect 2018 full year EPS of $5.35-$5.55. Guidance assumes core sales growth of +2% to +4%, a modest benefit from favorable foreign exchange, and approximately $400 million of sales contribution from the Crane Currency acquisition.

Full year 2018 free cash flow (cash provided by operating activities less capital spending) is expected to be in a range of $220-$250 million, including capital expenditures of approximately $125 million. Capital expenditures are expected to be elevated in 2018 primarily due to repositioning activities, further investments enabled by the TCJA, and investment activity at Crane Currency.

Sales decreased $2 million, or 1%, primarily as a result of unfavorable comparisons related to shipments for a large military program in the fourth quarter of 2016. Operating margin increased to 29.9%, from 21.0% last year, primarily as a result of a gain on the sale of an asset related to repositioning activities. Excluding Special Items, operating margin increased 370 basis points to 24.7%, primarily as a result of strong productivity. Aerospace & Electronics order backlog was $374 million at December 31, 2017, compared to $353 million at December 31, 2016.

In the three months ended December 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, Average Shares Outstanding excluding the effect of diluted stock options were used to compute the per share amounts since these periods were in a loss position. Had Net Income Attributable To Common Shareholders been reported for these periods, Average Shares Outstanding would have included the effect of diluted stock options when computing per share amounts (see chart below).

Certain non-GAAP measures have been provided to facilitate comparison with the prior year.
The Company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). However, 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, providing investors with a clearer view of the underlying trends of the business. Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating, planning and compensation decisions and in evaluating the Company's performance.

In addition, Free Cash Flow provides supplemental information to assist management and investors 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. Non-GAAP financial measures, which may be inconsistent with similarly captioned measures presented by other companies, should be viewed in addition to, and not as a substitute for, the Company’s reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP.
