Fortive Reports Third Quarter 2019 Results

EVERETT, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fortive Corporation ('Fortive') (NYSE: FTV) today announced results for the third quarter 2019.

For the third quarter ended September 27, 2019, net earnings from continuing operations attributable to common stockholders were $190.0 million. For the same period, adjusted net earnings from continuing operations were $311.0 million. Diluted net earnings per share from continuing operations for the third quarter ended September 27, 2019 were $0.56. For the same period, adjusted diluted net earnings per share from continuing operations were $0.87.

For the third quarter of 2019, revenues from continuing operations increased 16.2% year-over-year to $1.9 billion, with core revenue growth of 2.1%.

James A. Lico, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, 'Today we reported an 18% year-over-year increase in our adjusted diluted earnings per share for the third quarter. While the more challenging macroeconomic conditions impacted growth in our Professional Instrumentation segment, we generated a double-digit increase in earnings and strong free cash flow driven by the contributions from recent acquisitions and the resilience of our portfolio. With the support of the Fortive Business System, and the compounding of the higher growth and higher recurring revenue elements of the portfolio that we have added over the past few years, we are well positioned to generate long-term value for all of our stakeholders.'

For the fourth quarter of 2019, Fortive anticipates diluted net earnings per share from continuing operations to be in the range of $0.36 to $0.41. Included in this range is approximately $45 million, or approximately $0.11 per diluted share, of anticipated investments in strategic productivity initiatives. Fortive anticipates adjusted diluted net earnings per share from continuing operations to be in the range of $0.96 to $1.01. For the full year 2019, Fortive expects diluted net earnings per share from continuing operations to be in the range of $1.81 to $1.86. For the full year 2019, Fortive expects adjusted diluted net earnings per share from continuing operations to be in the range of $3.42 to $3.47.

Mr. Lico added, 'As we navigate the slowing that we have seen in recent quarters, we continue to invest in our businesses, driving organic innovation and pursuing additional acquisition opportunities. Advanced Sterilization Products continues to perform well and we are pleased with the substantial progress we have made with its integration. We will continue to execute our capital allocation strategy in the coming quarters, as we look to accelerate the achievement of our strategic priorities and strengthen the competitive advantages of our businesses.'

Fortive will discuss results and outlook during its quarterly investor conference call today starting at 5:30 p.m. ET. The call and an accompanying slide presentation will be webcast on the 'Investors' section of Fortive's website, www.fortive.com, under 'Events & Presentations.'

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

In addition to the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this earnings release also references 'adjusted net earnings,' 'adjusted diluted net earnings per share,' and 'core revenue,' which are non-GAAP financial measures. The reasons why we believe these measures, when used in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures, provide useful information to investors, how management uses such non-GAAP financial measures, a reconciliation of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures and other information relating to these measures are included in the supplemental reconciliation schedule attached. The non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the GAAP financial measures, but should instead be read in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measures used by Fortive in this release may be different from similarly-titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

FORTIVE CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
AND OTHER INFORMATION

Adjusted Net Earnings from Continuing Operations and Adjusted Diluted Net Earnings per Share from Continuing Operations

We disclose the non-GAAP measures of historical adjusted net earnings from continuing operations and historical and forecasted adjusted diluted net earnings per share from continuing operations, which to the extent applicable, make the following adjustments to GAAP net earnings and GAAP diluted net earnings per share:

  • Excluding on a pretax basis amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets;
  • Excluding on a pretax basis acquisition and other transaction costs deemed significant ('Transaction Costs');
  • Excluding on a pretax basis the effect of deferred revenue and inventory fair value adjustments related to significant acquisitions;
  • Excluding on a pretax basis the effect of earnings from our equity method investments;
  • Excluding on a pretax basis the non-cash interest expense associated with our 0.875% convertible senior notes;
  • Excluding on a pretax basis the non-recurring gain on the disposition of assets;
  • Excluding the tax effect of the adjustments noted above. The tax effect of such adjustments was calculated by applying our overall estimated effective tax rate to the pretax amount of each adjustment (unless the nature of the item and/or the tax jurisdiction in which the item has been recorded requires application of a specific tax rate or tax treatment, in which case the tax effect of such item is estimated by applying such specific tax rate or tax treatment). We expect to apply our overall estimated effective tax rate to each adjustment going forward, and, as such, we are applying the estimated effective tax rate to each adjustment for the forecasted periods to facilitate comparisons in future periods;
  • Excluding the 2017 provisional amount estimated in connection with the Tax Cut and Jobs Act and subsequent adjustments to the provisional estimates (the 'TCJA Adjustments'); and
  • Including the impact of the assumed conversion of our Mandatory Convertible Preferred Stock.

While we have a history of acquisition activity, we do not acquire businesses on a predictable cycle, and the amount of an acquisition's purchase price allocated to intangible assets and related amortization term and the deferred revenue and inventory fair value adjustments are unique to each acquisition and can vary significantly from acquisition to acquisition. In addition, the Transaction Costs are unique to each transaction, are impacted from period to period depending on the number of acquisitions or divestitures evaluated, pending or completed during such period, and the complexity of such transactions. We adjust for, and identify as significant, Transaction Costs, acquisition related fair value adjustments to deferred revenue and inventory, and corresponding restructuring charges primarily related to acquisitions, in each case, incurred in a given period, if we determine that such costs and adjustments exceed the range of our typical transaction costs and adjustments, respectively, in a given period. We believe, however, that it is important for investors to understand that such intangible assets contribute to revenue generation and that intangible assets and deferred revenue and inventory fair value adjustments related to past acquisitions will recur in future periods until such intangible assets and deferred revenue and inventory fair value adjustments, as applicable, have been fully amortized.

Furthermore, we adjust for the effect of earnings from our equity method investments over which we do not exercise control over the operations or the resulting earnings. We believe that this adjustment provides our investors with additional insight into our operational performance. However, it should be noted that earnings from our equity method investments will recur in future periods while we maintain such investments.

In June 2018, we issued $1.38 billion in aggregate liquidation preference of shares of our 5.00% Mandatory Convertible Preferred Stock ('MCPS'). Dividends on the MCPS are payable on a cumulative basis at an annual rate of 5.00% on the liquidation preference of $1,000 per share. Unless earlier converted, each share of the MCPS will automatically convert on July 1, 2021 into between, after giving effect to the prior anti-dilution adjustment, 10.9041 and 13.3575 shares of our common stock, subject to further anti-dilution adjustments. The number of shares of our common stock issuable on conversion of the Mandatory Convertible Preferred Stock will be determined based on the average volume weighted average price ('VWAP') per share of our common stock over the 20 consecutive trading day period beginning on and including the 22nd scheduled trading day immediately preceding July 1, 2021. For the purposes of calculating adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share, we have excluded the MCPS dividend and, for the purposes of adjusted earnings per share, assumed the 'if-converted' method of share dilution (the incremental shares of common stock deemed outstanding applying the 'if-converted' method of share dilution, the 'MCPS Converted Shares'). We believe that using the 'if-converted' method provides additional insight to investors on the potential impact of the MCPS once they are converted into common stock no later than July 1, 2021.

On February 22, 2019, we issued $1.4 billion in aggregate principal amount of our 0.875% Convertible Senior Notes due 2022 (the 'Convertible Notes'), including $187.5 million in aggregate principal amount resulting from an exercise in full of an over-allotment option. The Convertible Notes bear interest at a rate of 0.875% per year, payable semiannually in arrears on February 15 and August 15 of each year, beginning on August 15, 2019. The Notes mature on February 15, 2022, unless earlier repurchased or converted in accordance with their terms prior to such date.

Of the proceeds received from the issuance of the Convertible Notes, $1.3 billion was classified as debt and $102.2 million was classified as equity, using an assumed effective interest rate of 3.38%. We recognize interest expense using the 3.38% assumed rate, and pay interest to holders of the notes at a coupon rate of 0.875%. We believe that adjusting for the non-cash imputed interest expense between the assumed rate and coupon rate provides additional insight into our cash interest expense.

The TCJA Adjustments identified above have been excluded from the GAAP measures identified above because items of this nature and/or size occur with inconsistent frequency or occur for reasons that may be unrelated to our commercial performance during the period and/or because we believe the corresponding adjustments are useful in assessing our potential ongoing operating costs or gains in a given period.

The forecasted adjusted diluted net earnings per share from continuing operations does not reflect certain adjustments that are inherently difficult to predict or estimate due to their unknown timing, effect and/or significance.

Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors by reflecting additional ways of viewing aspects of our operations that, when reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measure, help our investors to understand the long-term profitability trends of our business, and facilitate comparisons of our operational performance and profitability to prior and future periods and to our peers.

These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a replacement for or superior to, the comparable GAAP measures, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Core Revenue

We use the term 'core revenue' when referring to a corresponding GAAP revenue measure, excluding (1) the impact from acquired businesses and (2) the impact of currency translation. References to sales attributable to acquisitions or acquired businesses refer to GAAP sales from acquired businesses recorded prior to the first anniversary of the acquisition less the amount of sales attributable to certain divested businesses or product lines not considered discontinued operations prior to the first anniversary of the divestiture. The portion of sales attributable to the impact of currency translation is calculated as the difference between (a) the period-to-period change in sales (excluding sales impact from acquired businesses) and (b) the period-to-period change in sales (excluding sales impact from acquired businesses) after applying the current period foreign exchange rates to the prior year period. This non-GAAP measure should be considered in addition to, and not as a replacement for or superior to, the comparable GAAP measure, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Management believes that this non-GAAP measure provides useful information to investors by helping identify underlying growth trends in our business and facilitating comparisons of our revenue performance with prior and future periods and to our peers. We exclude the effect of acquisition and divestiture-related items because the nature, size and number of such transactions can vary dramatically from period to period and between us and our peers. We exclude the effect of currency translation from sales measures because currency translation is not under management's control and is subject to volatility. We believe that such exclusions, when presented with the corresponding GAAP measures, may assist in assessing the business trends and making comparisons of long-term performance.
