 Third Quarter GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share (“EPS”) of $0.46

ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 30, 2020-- FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR) (“FLIR” or the “Company”), a world leader in the design, manufacture, and marketing of intelligent sensing technologies, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020.

Commenting on FLIR’s third quarter results, Jim Cannon, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “I’m pleased with our third quarter results despite dynamic macro-economic conditions arising from the pandemic across some of the end markets we serve. We delivered important program wins, brought innovative new products to market, and on a year over year basis, expanded margins and drove earnings growth. Total backlog of $899 million remained at near-record levels, up 10.9% from the prior year quarter. In addition, we continue to realize expense savings through the ongoing execution of Project Be Ready, which aims to help our business profitably scale over the longer term while reducing costs in the near term. As a result, we improved adjusted operating margins by 110 basis points and adjusted net income by nearly 8% from the third quarter last year. As momentum continues to build across the enterprise, we believe our third quarter performance provides further evidence that the strategic pivot we embarked upon two years ago is working.”

Mr. Cannon concluded, “Based on our learnings from operating in the COVID-19 environment, our results year-to-date and outlook for the remainder of the fourth quarter, today we are re-initiating guidance for the full year 2020. Importantly, we expect to achieve year-over-year improvement in adjusted earnings per diluted share in 2020. Our commitment to driving value for shareholders remains at the forefront of everything we do and I feel confident that FLIR is well-positioned as we look to the future.”

Summary Results

Revenues for the quarter were $466.4 million, compared to $471.2 million the prior year quarter. Bookings totaled $451.2 million in the quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 0.97. Backlog at the end of the quarter was $898.7 million, reflecting a 10.9% increase relative to the prior year quarter.

GAAP Earnings Results

Gross profit for the quarter was $228.9 million, compared to $229.7 million in the prior year quarter. Gross margin increased to 49.1% from 48.8% in the prior year quarter, primarily attributable to favorable product mix in the Industrial Technologies segment, partially offset by the ramp up of lower margin programs in the Defense Technologies segment. Earnings from operations for the quarter was $86.6 million, compared to $74.4 million in the prior year quarter. Operating margin increased to 18.6% from 15.8% in the prior year quarter, primarily as a result of decreases in intangible asset amortization, transaction and integration costs, and other operating expense reductions from Project Be Ready as well as marketing and travel costs, partially offset by an increase in deferred compensation costs. Diluted EPS was $0.46, compared to $0.46 in the prior year quarter. The weighted average diluted share count for the quarter was 132 million, down from 136 million in the prior year quarter primarily due to stock repurchase activity initiated in the first quarter of 2020.

Non-GAAP Earnings Results

Adjusted gross profit for the quarter was $238.5 million, compared to $239.9 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted gross margin increased to 51.1% from 50.9% in the prior year quarter, primarily attributable to favorable product mix in the Industrial Technologies segment, partially offset by the ramp up of lower margin programs in the Defense Technologies segment. Adjusted operating income for the quarter was $104.8 million, compared to $100.8 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted operating margin increased to 22.5% from 21.4% in the prior year quarter, primarily as a result of operating expense reductions from Project Be Ready as well as decreases in marketing and travel costs; partially offset by an increase in deferred compensation costs. Adjusted diluted EPS was $0.64, compared to $0.58 in the prior year quarter.

Segment Results

Industrial Technologies Segment

Industrial Technologies revenues for the quarter were $281.1 million, representing an increase of $23.2 million, or 9.0% compared to the prior year quarter. The increase was primarily attributable to heightened demand for EST solutions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and an increase in maritime product sales, partially offset by lower volume in other commercial end markets such as security products.

Industrial Technologies segment operating income was $87.7 million, compared to $63.7 million in the prior year quarter. Segment operating margin increased to 31.2% from 24.7% in the prior year quarter, primarily attributable to the aforementioned higher revenue and associated gross profit, favorable product mix, and operating expense reductions from Project Be Ready as well as lower marketing and travel costs.

Industrial Technologies bookings totaled $274.0 million for the quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 0.97. Backlog at the end of the quarter was $342.4 million, reflecting a 25.1% increase relative to the prior year quarter, primarily as a result of award timing and an increased volume of long term orders.

Defense Technologies Segment

Defense Technologies revenues for the quarter of $185.3 million decreased by $28.0 million, or 13.1% compared to the prior year quarter. The revenue decrease was primarily attributable to shipment timing and the completion of certain contracts that contributed to revenue in the prior year quarter, partially offset by increased volumes for unmanned systems.

Defense Technologies segment operating income was $38.8 million, compared to $53.8 million in the prior year quarter. Segment operating margin decreased to 20.9% from 25.2% in the prior year quarter, primarily attributable to the aforementioned lower revenue and associated gross profit, partially offset by operating expense reductions from Project Be Ready as well as lower marketing and travel costs.

Defense Technologies bookings totaled $177.1 million for the quarter, representing a book-to-bill ratio of 0.96. Backlog at the end of the quarter was $556.3 million, reflecting a 3.6% increase relative to the prior year quarter, primarily as a result of increased orders in unmanned systems.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

FLIR ended the third quarter of 2020 with $320.0 million in cash and cash equivalents and approximately $443 million in borrowing capacity under its credit facility based on current profitability levels and leverage covenants.

On August 3, 2020, the Company completed its previously announced public offering of $500 million aggregate principal amount 2.5% notes due August 1, 2030 (the “2030 Notes”). The aggregate net proceeds from the offering were approximately $494.2 million after deducting underwriting fees, debt discount and transaction issuance costs, which are being amortized over a period of ten years. Interest on the 2030 Notes is payable semiannually in arrears on February 1 and August 1 of each year beginning on February 1, 2021. The proceeds from the sale of the 2030 Notes were used to redeem the Company’s outstanding $425.0 million senior unsecured notes due June 15, 2021 and for general corporate purposes.

COVID-19 Update

As previously announced, FLIR’s businesses have been deemed essential for critical infrastructure under the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency exemption, and all of its manufacturing facilities remain operational. FLIR has implemented stringent safety protocols and continues to monitor recommendations and guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control, the European Centre for Disease Prevention, and the World Health Organization to ensure the health and safety of its employees.

Given the high degree of uncertainty in the current macroeconomic environment resulting from COVID-19, the Company remains focused on cash optimization activities, disciplined capital allocation, and executing Project Be Ready to simplify its product portfolio and better align resources with higher growth opportunities while reducing costs.

Shareholder Return Activity

FLIR’s Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.17 per share on FLIR common stock payable on December 4, 2020 to shareholders of record as of close of business on November 20, 2020.

Forward Guidance

As a result of the Company’s year-to-date performance and updated expectations for the remainder or the year, the Company is re-initiating and updating its originally issued guidance for the full year ending December 31, 2020 as follows:

  • Revenue in the range of $1.880 billion to $1.900 billion, from $1.850 billion to $1.925 billion;
  • Adjusted operating income margins of approximately 22.0%, from 20.0% to 21.0%;
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share in the range of $2.30 to $2.35, from $2.10 to $2.301

1Adjusted diluted earnings per share assumes an effective tax rate of 21% and weighted average diluted share count of approximately 133 million shares.

The Company’s updated forward guidance reflects the currently expected impacts related to COVID-19, however, the pandemic has generated significant uncertainty, including an overall lack of visibility into future demand trends and economic conditions in some of the markets in which FLIR operates. While the Company has re-initiated guidance for 2020 it cautions that market dynamics and impacts related to COVID-19 are fluid and changes to the current business environment could have a material impact on current expectations.

The forward guidance for 2020 includes forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures, which management uses in measuring performance. FLIR is not able to reconcile full year 2020 projected adjusted operating income or full year 2020 projected adjusted earnings per diluted share to the most comparable GAAP measures without unreasonable efforts because it is not possible to predict with a reasonable degree of certainty the actual impact of the Charges (defined herein) and the exact timing and amount of comparability items throughout 2020. The unavailable information could have a significant impact on full year 2020 GAAP financial results.

Conference Call

FLIR has scheduled a conference call at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time today to discuss its results for the quarter. The details for the conference call can be found below. A simultaneous webcast of the conference call and the accompanying summary presentation may be accessed online from a link in the Events & Presentations section of the Company’s Investor Relations website at www.FLIR.com/investor.

Definitions and Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Bookings are defined as contractual agreements awarded during the reporting period. Backlog is defined as total estimated amount of future revenues to be recognized under negotiated contracts.

We report our financial results in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). As a supplement to our GAAP financial results, this earnings announcement contains some or all of the following non-GAAP financial measures: (i) adjusted gross profit, (ii) adjusted gross margin (defined as adjusted gross profit divided by revenue), (iii) adjusted operating income, (iv) adjusted operating margin (defined as adjusted operating income divided by revenue), (v) adjusted net earnings, and (vi) adjusted diluted EPS. These non-GAAP measures of financial performance are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and computational methods may differ from those used by other companies. Additionally, these non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for any other performance measure determined in accordance with GAAP, and the Company cautions investors and potential investors to consider these measures in addition to, not as a substitute for, its consolidated financial results as presented in accordance with GAAP. Each of the non-GAAP measures is adjusted from GAAP results as outlined in the "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation" table included within this earnings release.

In calculating non-GAAP financial measures, we exclude certain items to facilitate a review of the comparability of our core operating performance on a period-to-period basis. Items excluded consist of: (i) separation, transaction, and integration costs, (ii) amortization of acquired intangibles, (iii) restructuring expenses and asset impairment charges, (iv) discrete legal and compliance matters, (v) loss on debt extinguishment, and (vi) discrete tax items. We do not consider these items to be directly related to our core operating performance. Non-GAAP measures are used internally to evaluate the core operating performance of our business, for comparison with forecasts and strategic plans, and as a factor for determining incentive compensation for certain employees. Accordingly, supplementing GAAP financial results with these non-GAAP financial measures enables the comparison of our ongoing operating results in a manner consistent with the metrics reviewed by management. We believe that these non-GAAP measures, when read in conjunction with our GAAP financials, provide useful information to investors by facilitating:

  • the comparability of our ongoing operating results over the periods presented;
  • the ability to identify trends in our underlying business; and
  • the comparison of our operating results against analyst financial models and operating results of other public companies that supplement their GAAP results with non-GAAP financial measures.

The following are explanations of each type of adjustment that we incorporate into non-GAAP financial measures:

  • Separation, transaction, and integration costs – Represents transaction and integration costs related to divestiture and acquisition initiatives.
  • Amortization of acquired intangibles – Represents amortization expense associated with acquired intangible assets.
  • Restructuring expenses and asset impairment charges – Represents employee separation expenses, facility termination costs, and other expenses as well as goodwill, intangible asset, and inventory impairment charges associated with Company restructuring activities.
  • Discrete legal and compliance matters – Represents costs incurred associated with certain legal and compliance matters that are not representative of ongoing operational costs. These expenses are primarily attributable to an administrative agreement with the U.S. Department of State (the “Consent Agreement”) to address and remediate certain historical practices associated with U.S. and international trade control laws and regulations. Such costs include a Directorate of Defense Trade Controls penalty, expenses associated with retention of a Special Compliance Officer, and remedial actions required by the terms of the Consent Agreement or otherwise necessary to remedy and achieve full compliance with U.S. and international trade control laws and regulations.
  • Loss on debt extinguishment – Represents the redemption premium and write-off of debt discount and debt issuance costs associated with redemption of the Company’s $425 million unsecured notes due June 15, 2021.
  • Discrete tax items – Represents tax expenses and benefits related to discrete events or transactions that are not representative of the Company’s estimated tax rate related to ongoing operations. These items include charges and reversals of provisions associated with certain unrecognized tax benefits, benefits or charges associated with the windfalls or shortfalls resulting from vesting and exercise activity of share-based compensation, changes in valuation allowances against certain deferred tax assets, and other discrete items not included in the annual effective tax rate associated with our ongoing operations.

Adjusted net earnings and adjusted diluted EPS include an estimate to reflect the tax effect of the discrete items identified above. The tax effect is calculated by applying the Company’s overall estimated effective tax rate, excluding significant discrete items, to earnings before income taxes.
