WHIRLPOOL CORPORATION REPORTS STRONG FIRST-QUARTER 2019 RESULTS

GAAP net earnings were $471 million, or $7.31 per diluted share, compared to $94 million, or $1.30 in the same prior-year period. Ongoing earnings per diluted share (non-GAAP)(1) of $3.11 were a first-quarter record compared to $2.81 in the same prior-year period.
The Company delivered solid earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT)(2) margin expansion, driven by previously-announced global cost-based pricing benefits and sustained fixed cost discipline.
The North America region delivered very strong EBIT(3) margin expansion of 90 basis points, despite weak industry demand and continued cost inflation.
On a full-year(5) basis, the Company now expects to deliver earnings per diluted share of $14.05 to $15.05 on a GAAP basis and continues to expect $14.00 to $15.00 on an ongoing basis(1).
The Company reaffirms its full-year(5) guidance to generate cash provided by operating activities of approximately $1.4 billion to $1.5 billion and free cash flow(4) of approximately $800 million to $900 million.
Consistent with its balanced approach to capital allocation, the Company announced a 4.3% increase to its quarterly dividend and repurchased $50 million in common stock; the Company intends to continue repurchasing stock throughout the remainder of 2019.
The Company will hold an Investor Day in New York City on May 23, 2019.
