"We are pleased with the progress and

evidenced by these strong third quarter
results," said Mark Blinn, Flowserve's
president and chief executive officer.
"Our continued internal improvement
initiatives have the company
well-positioned for disciplined
profitable growth, continued operational
improvement and project opportunities.
Key takeaways from the 2013 third quarter

  *Ongoing operational excellence
    initiatives, including 'One
    Flowserve,' buoyed our margin
    improvements and supported EPS growth
    for the quarter as well as
    year-to-date compared to 2012;
  *Solid year-over-year and sequential
    OE bookings growth, particularly in
    EPD, is a positive indicator despite
    a difficult 2012 compare quarter that
    included large IPD orders exceeding
    $90 million;
  *Continued bidding discipline remains
    paramount, as initial large project
    opportunities anticipated to be
    highly competitive;
  *Diversity in geographic exposure,
    business mix, customer base and end
    markets remains a major strength;
  *Aftermarket strategies and run-rate
    original equipment projects again
    contributed to increased sales and
    gross profits, and producing an
    improved level-loading of our
    business during the year;
  *Significant shipments of "legacy"
    projects suppressed EPD margins this
    quarter, but improved past-due
    metrics and enhanced the quality of
    quarter-end backlog;
  *Earnings leverage on volume in EPD
    and gross margin increases in FCD,
    again drove single-digit sales growth
    into double-digit profit improvement
    for the third consecutive quarter;
  *IPD gross margin increase of 120
    basis points is encouraging progress,
    solidifying the operational platform
    to pursue growth;
  *Strong SG&A expense and fixed cost
    leverage realized and remains a key
    focus; and
  *While some uncertainty remains within
    the global economy, the strength of
    our business model and the energy
    markets we serve provide confidence
    to our outlook for long-term earnings

"In summary, our strong third quarter
results again demonstrate that our
internal initiatives, disciplined
approach and end-user strategies are
delivering value to our customers, and in
turn to Flowserve shareholders."

Financial Performance and Guidance

"For the third quarter of 2013, our
single-digit revenue increase produced
solid operating leverage and incremental
margins. These improvements, when
combined with the share count reduction,
delivered EPS growth over 30%," commented
Mike Taff, Flowserve's senior vice
president and chief financial officer.
"Focused cost control yielded impressive
SG&A leverage during the 2013 third
quarter, as compared to 2012, driving
SG&A as a percent of sales to 18.8%, as
each segment delivered a reduction in
absolute dollar SG&A spend."

"Even with our strong third quarter
financial results, we continue to address
opportunities to improve our performance.
Initiatives to improve our working
capital are an example and are gaining
traction. In the 2013 third quarter, we
realized solid operating cash flow
improvement both year-over-year and
sequentially. We also showed progress in
a five day reduction in DSO compared to
prior year, which builds on the three day
improvement in the second quarter. With
meaningful "legacy" shipments, we also
saw significant improvement in our past
due backlog, although our inventory turns
were essentially flat. Overall, this
progress validates that our focus is
well-placed and that opportunities remain

"As we pursue our long-term working
capital and cash flow goals, we remain
strategically focused on deploying cash
to the most accretive long-term
alternatives, including organic and
acquisitive investments or by returning
excess capital to our shareholders, all
while maintaining a solid balance sheet.
Through the first nine months of 2013,
Flowserve returned approximately $427
million in share repurchases and
dividends. Going forward, we will remain
faithful to this disciplined approach to                         
capital deployment."

"We are encouraged by the year-to-date
results we have delivered with a more
level-loaded business, but we still
anticipate the fourth quarter to be the
pinnacle of the full year. As such, we
have increased the lower-end of our prior
guidance range, and now expect 2013 EPS
between $3.33 and $3.53."

Operational Commentary and Segment
Performance (all comparisons versus third
quarter 2012 unless otherwise noted)

"Our strong and improved operational
performance was validated by these solid
third quarter results," said Tom Pajonas,
senior vice president and chief operating
officer. "In particular, the benefits
from our 'One Flowserve' initiatives
continue to enhance our operations, while
our commitment to a disciplined and
selective pursuit of project work is
designed to generate sales with the
desired outcomes. Together, this formula
in the 2013 third quarter delivered
significant flow through to the operating
income line in EPD, with continued strong
income and margin growth in FCD. As we
look ahead, these ongoing essentials are
positioning the business to maximize
project opportunities as the cycle gains

"In the third quarter 2013, Flowserve
customers entrusted us with our highest
level of original equipment bookings
since the first quarter of 2012,
representing continued strong run-rate
activity plus a few medium size awards.
With regard to larger orders, we remain
encouraged by the size and number of
projects that are progressing through the
pre-FEED and FEED stages, including a few
which have already been officially
awarded to EPC firms. Our larger OE
bookings typically follow this process,
and therefore the vast majority of
opportunities are still on the horizon.
We anticipate that initial bidding
opportunities for larger projects will
prove very competitive. As such, we will
maintain our discipline and selectivity
to ensure the quality of our backlog."

Flowserve reports its operations through
three segments: Engineered Product
Division (EPD), Industrial Product
Division (IPD) and Flow Control Division
