The Timken Company Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015; Revised Earnings Guidance for the Fiscal 2015; Reports Impairment Charges for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015

The Timken Company announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. The company reported 2015 first quarter adjusted net income from continuing operations of $44.2 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, compared to $47 million, or $0.50 per diluted share in the same period a year ago. The first quarter results were adjusted to reflect the impact of negative currency and unfavorable mix, partially offset by the benefit of higher volume, lower selling, general and administrative expenses and a lower tax rate. EPS also benefited from the company's share buyback program, including 2.3 million shares repurchased in the first quarter. On a GAAP basis the company said pension settlement and other restructuring charges drove a net loss from continuing operations of $134.8 million, or $1.54 per share, compared with net income from continuing operations during the same period a year ago of $60.3 million or $0.64 per diluted share. Revenues of $722.5 million were down from $736.8 million in first quarter 2014. Growth of 2.5% driven by wind energy, military marine and rail sectors, and the benefit of acquisitions. Operating loss was $147.4 million against income of $72.4 million a year ago. Loss before interest and taxes (LBIT) was $148.8 million against profit of $92.8 million a year ago. Loss from continuing operations before income taxes was $156.1 million against profit of $88.3 million a year ago. Net loss attributable to the company was $135.2 million or $1.54 diluted per share against profit of $83.5 million or $0.90 diluted per share a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations was $17.0 million against net cash used in operating activities of $1.3 million a year ago. Capital expenditures were $19.7 million against $19.1 million a year ago. Consolidated earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT), after adjustments was $73.0 million against $75.1 million a year ago. The company ended the quarter with net debt of $354 million or 20% of capital, up from 13% at the end of 2014. Operating cash flow from continuing operations for the quarter was $17 million, up from last year's use of cash of roughly $1 million. The improvement was driven by lower trade working capital needs and lower pension payments compared to the first quarter of last year. The company has updated 2015 full year guidance and now expects year-over-year revenues to be down approximately 4%, adjusted from prior guidance of 1% growth. The guidance implies projected revenues of $2.97 billion. The company now expects full-year 2015 adjusted EPS in the range of $2.30 to $2.40, down from previous guidance of $2.65 to $2.75. The company projects 2015 earnings per diluted share to range from $0.60 to $0.70, which includes $1.75 of non-cash pension settlement charges and $0.20 per share of impairment and other restructuring charges, partially offset by $0.25 of income associated with discrete tax accrual adjustments. EBIT margin expects approximately of 11.5% from prior guidance of 12.5% to 13%. Sales now expects of $3.0 billion from $3.1 billion prior guidance. Free cash flow of $190 million and assumes capex of approximately 4% of sales. The company expects to maintain a 32% adjusted tax rate for the remainder of 2015. The company reported impairment charges of $2.7 million for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015.

The Timken Company Expands Product Offering of High Performance Spherical Roller Bearings

The Timken Company expects to prompt a spherical revolution with its recent introduction of medium bore high-performance Timken(®) spherical roller bearings, including new steel cage sizes. Spherical roller bearings are widely used in process industries in equipment ranging from continuous casters, crushers, vibratory screens, excavation loaders and conveyors. To help customers select Timken spherical roller bearings, Timken offers downloads of 2D drawings and 3D models for addition to presentations or insertion directly into a CAD system. Testing also showed that eliminating the center guide ring reduces running torque up to 4%. Without a guide ring, less friction is created, so less energy is needed to move the bearing and keep it moving, meaning improved efficiency. These features can contribute to longer bearing life, resulting in a product that is designed to: Minimize Wear. Improved profiles designed to reduce internal stresses and optimize load distribution minimize wear; Carry Higher Loads. Longer rollers give more surface area to carry the load, enabling customers to do more and operate with higher loads; Run Cooler. Enhanced surface finishes can result in improved lube film, which avoids metal-to-metal contact to keep things running cooler; Run Longer. Hardened steel cages are designed to deliver greater fatigue strength, increased wear resistance and tougher protection against shock and acceleration, making it possible for the bearing to run longer.
