Crane Co. Declares Second Quarter Dividend Payable on June 9, 2015

Crane Co. announced its regular quarterly dividend of $0.33 per share for the second quarter of 2015. The dividend is payable on June 9, 2015 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on May 29, 2015.

Crane Co. Reports Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Revises Earnings Guidance for Full Year 2015

Crane Co. reported earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported total net sales of $678.8 million against $716.8 million a year ago. The sales decline was comprised of a $34 million, or 5% impact from unfavorable foreign exchange; a divestiture impact of $5 million, or 1%; partially offset by slightly positive core sales growth of $1 million. Total operating profit was $86.0 million against $81.4 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was $76.3 million against $71.8 million a year ago. Net income before allocation to non controlling interests was 51.3 million against $48.9 million a year ago. Net income attributable to common shareholders was $51.1 million against $48.7 million a year ago. Earnings per diluted share were $0.87 against $0.82 a year ago. Total cash used for operating activities was $11.6 million against $18.9 million a year ago. Capital expenditures were $10.2 million against $9.4 million a year ago. Net income attributable to common shareholders before special items was $54.1 million or $0.92 per share against $62.2 million or $1.05 per share a year ago. Tax rate was 32.7% on a GAAP basis compared to 32% for the same period last year. Excluding the impact of the special items, first quarter tax rate was 32.7%, which compares to 31.7% for the same period last year. Free cash flow was negative $22 million, a 23% improvement from last year. The company announced that earnings guidance for 2015 was originally provided on January 26, 2015, and was based on foreign exchange rates as of December 31, 2014. Revised guidance now reflects foreign exchange rates as of March 31, 2015, resulting in a sales decline of 4% to 6% from unfavorable foreign exchange, compared to prior guidance of a 2% to 4% decline. Core sales are expected to be flat to up 2%, while divestitures are expected to reduce sales by 0.5%. Excluding special items, earnings are now expected to be in a range of $4.30-$4.50 per diluted share, compared to prior guidance of $4.45-$4.65 per diluted share, with the reduction solely a result of incremental foreign exchange headwinds. On a GAAP basis, earnings are now expected to be in a range of $4.17-$4.37 per diluted share, compared to prior guidance of $4.32-$4.52 per diluted share. Full year 2015 free cash flow (cash provided by operating activities less capital spending) is now expected to be $200-$230 million, compared to prior guidance of $210-$240 million. Cash used for operating activities before asbestos - related payments is expected to be $318.5 million to $328.5 million. Cash used for operating activities is expected to be $255.0 million to $275.0 million and capital expenditures are expected to be $55.0 million to $45.0 million. Full year tax rate assumptions remain unchanged.
