WHIRLPOOL CORPORATION REPORTS STRONG THIRD-QUARTER 2019 RESULTS

The Company delivered strong global net earnings margin expansion of 310 basis points (GAAP) driven by a gain on the sale of the Embraco compressor business, favorable price/mix, and cost reduction actions. On an ongoing basis (non-GAAP), the Company delivered solid EBIT(2) margin expansion of 100 basis points, excluding the gain on the sale of the Embraco compressor business.
The North America region delivered strong EBIT(3) margin expansion to 12.8 percent, an 80 basis point improvement driven by strong price/mix and focused cost discipline.
The Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region delivered significant year-over-year and sequential EBIT(3) improvement driven by the execution of strategic actions to restore profitability.
On a full-year basis, the Company decreased its GAAP earnings per diluted share guidance to $16.80 to $17.55; the Company is trending toward the high end of its ongoing earnings per diluted share(1) guidance range of $14.75 to $15.50.
The Company reaffirms its full-year cash flow guidance, and strengthened its balance sheet through the repayment of the $1 billion term loan.
BENTON HARBOR, Mich., October 22, 2019
- Whirlpool Corporation (NYSE: WHR) announced today third-quarter GAAP net earnings of $358 million (7.0 percent of sales), or $5.57 per diluted share, compared to $210 million (3.9 percent of sales), or $3.22 per diluted share, reported for the same prior-year period. On a GAAP basis, net earnings margin, or earnings as a percent of sales, was favorably impacted by a gain on the sale of the Embraco compressor business of approximately $511 million, partially offset by product warranty and liability expense of $119 million. GAAP net earnings margin and ongoing EBIT(2) margin were favorably impacted by price/mix and focused cost discipline. Third-quarter ongoing earnings per diluted share(1) were $3.97, compared to $4.55 in the same prior-year period. The Company's prior-year period GAAP and ongoing earnings per diluted share were favorably impacted by a lower effective tax rate, primarily related to pre-funding of its U.S. pension and other tax planning strategies.
