precision castparts corp (PC9) Key Developments

Precision Castparts Corp. Provides Earnings Guidance for the Fiscal Fourth Quarter 2015

Precision Castparts Corp. provided earnings guidance for the fiscal fourth quarter 2015. For a the quarter, the company expects fiscal fourth quarter diluted earnings per share from continuing operations to be in the range of $0.65 to $0.80, including the charges discussed above, which range from approximately $343 million to $363 million pre-tax, or $2.15 to $2.25 per share (diluted), subject to finalization of the fiscal year close. Excluding the impairment and restructuring charges in the quarter, diluted adjusted earnings per share are expected to be $2.90 to $2.95. The adjusted earnings per share reflect unfavorable mix, and lower than expected pricing and sales volumes, primarily in the oil & gas and power pipe businesses, in addition to foreign exchange headwinds and the impact of the TIMET Morgantown incident.

Precision Castparts Corp.'s Huntington Plant Lays Off Workers

Precision Castparts Corp. announced that its Special Metals alloy plant in Huntington is laying off about 100 workers. The company didn't specify in a statement whether the layoffs would be temporary or permanent. The company said it will evaluate its staffing in the future as business conditions warrant. The 130-acre plant manufactures high-performance nickel alloys for the aerospace, gas well and other industries and employs more than 500 hourly workers.

Kevin Murphy Sues Precision Castparts Corp

Kevin Murphy, an individual shareholder, sued Precision Castparts Corp., alleges the company's 2013 and 2014 debt agreements with Bank of America contain inappropriate language that would allow the bank to immediately call in its outstanding debt if a majority of the board is replaced in a proxy fight. The company signed a $1 billion line of credit with the bank in 2013 and renewed it again in 2014. Murphy argues that the terms could have a chilling effect on any efforts to replace the company's existing board members with unapproved outsiders. The terms are commonly referred to as 'Dead Hand Proxy Put' and 'Poison Put'. Murphy, who seeks to represent shareholders of the company's nearly 141.8 million in outstanding shares, is not seeking damages. Noting that the so-called 'Dead Hand Proxy Put' and 'Poison Put' clauses have been rejected by other courts, he is asking the Oregon court to issue a ruling that the clauses are unenforceable. The Delaware Court of Chancery has said such agreements 'can operate as improper entrenchment devices that coerce stockholders into voting only for persons approved by the incumbent board'. Murphy is represented by Keith Dubanevich of Stoll Stoll Berne Lokting & Schlachter P.C.
