PITTSBURGH, (August 5, 2019) – Kennametal Inc. (NYSE: KMT) (the "Company") today announced fourth quarter and fiscal 2019 results. For the fourth quarter, the Company reported EPS of $0.74, compared with $0.83 the prior year quarter. The current quarter adjusted EPS was $0.84, compared with $0.87 in the prior year quarter.
For fiscal 2019, the Company reported EPS of $2.90, compared with $2.42 in the prior year. Adjusted EPS was $3.02 in the current year, compared with $2.65 in the prior year.

“We posted strong margin improvement in fiscal 2019 on moderate organic sales growth, reflecting increasing progress on our simplification/modernization initiatives,” said Christopher Rossi, President and Chief Executive Officer. “A key milestone of those initiatives was the recent announcement of the intended closure of four of our facilities, which will drive further structural benefits and improve operational efficiency. We also continued to gain traction on our growth initiatives in general engineering and aerospace, with aerospace growing by double digits for the sixth consecutive quarter.”

Rossi continued “Against this backdrop of year-over-year progress, we saw increased softening in most of our end-markets late in the year, which put pressure on our fourth quarter results. Our expectation is that this challenging macro environment will continue into the first half of fiscal 2020. Nevertheless, we will stay focused on the things we can control and execute our plan to improve long-term profitability.”

Fiscal 2019 Fourth Quarter Key Developments
 
Sales were $604 million compared with $646 million in the same quarter last year. Sales decreased by 7 percent, driven by 4 percent unfavorable currency exchange impact, 2 percent organic decline and a 1 percent decrease due to fewer business days.
