Whirlpool Corp. Raises its Quarterly Dividend

Whirlpool Corp. raised its quarterly dividend by 20% to $0.90 per share.

Whirlpool Corp. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2015; Reaffirms Earnings Guidance for the Full Year of 2015 and Provides Earnings Guidance for the Second Half of 2015

Whirlpool Corp. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $5,208 million compared with $4,682 million for the same period a year ago. Excluding the impact of foreign currency, sales increased over 25%, primarily driven by the acquisitions. Operating profit was $273 million compared with $291 million for the same period a year ago. Earnings before income taxes were $275 million compared with $235 million for the same period a year ago. Net earnings available to company was $177 million or $2.21 per diluted share compared with $179 million or $2.25 per diluted share for the same period a year ago. For the six months, the company reported net sales of $10,054 million compared with $9,045 million for the same period a year ago. Operating profit was $576 million compared with $572 million for the same period a year ago. Earnings before income taxes were $482 million compared with $449 million for the same period a year ago. Net earnings available to company was $368 million or $4.60 per diluted share compared with $339 million or $4.27 per diluted share for the same period a year ago. Cash used in operating activities was $397 million compared with $368 million for the same period a year ago. Capital expenditures were $268 million compared with $265 million for the same period a year ago. The company has increased its full-year 2015 GAAP net earnings per diluted share guidance to reflect a gain related to a business investment in Latin America. For full year, the company now expects full-year GAAP net earnings per diluted share available to company of $9.50 to $10.50. This adjustment does not impact the company's expectations for ongoing business earnings per diluted share. As such, the company continues to expect full-year ongoing business earnings per diluted share of $12.00 to $13.00. The company continues to expect to generate free cash flow of approximately $700 million. Included in this guidance are restructuring cash outlays of up to $250 million, capital spending of approximately $750 million to $800 million and U.S. pension contributions of approximately $72 million. The company is making good progress so far this year, and it expects to deliver record sales and ongoing earnings in 2015. The company continues to expect its full year tax rate to be between 22% to 25% for both GAAP and ongoing earnings. Cash provided by operating activities expected to be $1,450 million to $1,500 million. In the second half, the company expects its previously announced price increases will be in full effect in Canada, Brazil and Russia. As a result, the company expects $1 earnings per share from price/mix and another $1.50 for normal volume seasonality in the second half. In summary, The company expects earnings per share to accelerate in the second half as its previously announced cost-based price actions, ongoing cost productivity, acquisition synergies and price/mix benefits ramp up to more than offset the negative currency impact. And as a result, it expects to deliver between $7.16 to $8.16 per share in the second half from an EPS perspective. The company lay out its second half actions to continue improving margins. With its new products fully floored, it expects to continue leveraging consumer demands to drive improved price/mix and volume growth in the second half. The company would also continue to deploy strong cost productivity plans. The company expects these actions, combined with its normal seasonal improvement will deliver growth and margin improvement in the second half of 2015, consistent with its prior expectations.
