ITT Reports Solid Second Quarter and Forecasts Strong Operational Performance for the Full Year

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 30, 2010 — ITT Corporation (NYSE: ITT) today reported 2010 second-quarter revenue of $2.7 billion and income from continuing operations of $226 million, or $1.22 per share. Excluding special items, income from continuing operations for the quarter was $211 million, or $1.14 per share, representing 9 percent year-over-year growth. Special items resulted from the completion of a tax audit.

“We are pleased with ITT’s strong productivity and solid operating margins this quarter, and we are making substantial progress realigning our portfolio of essential products and services to drive future growth,” said Steve Loranger, ITT’s chairman, president and chief executive officer. “Our Motion & Flow Control business once again delivered exceptional performance with significant increases in revenue and operating income. Our Defense & Information Solutions business delivered improved productivity and lower expenses driven by its business transformation. Our Fluid Technology team posted solid margin expansion with outstanding productivity. We are growing in emerging markets and seeing market recovery in some of our commercial businesses, driving significant growth in organic orders. All in, it adds up to a great first half.”

During the quarter the company announced that it acquired Canberra Pumps in Brazil and that it signed a definitive agreement to acquire Godwin Pumps as part of ITT’s portfolio repositioning strategy. These businesses will be included in the Fluid Technology segment. The company also today announced its plans to divest CAS, Inc., a systems engineering and technical assistance (SETA) component of the Defense & Information Solutions segment.

“Our strategies for long-term sustainable growth include increasing our presence in emerging markets, rebalancing our revenue mix and strengthening the portion of our business that is aligned with global macro trends, including the need for fresh water and modernized infrastructure, and we made good progress in the second quarter. The purchase of Godwin will build our global position in water, wastewater and industrial process, and Canberra Pumps expands our position in Latin America and enables us to sharpen our focus on the growing oil and gas market,” Loranger said. “Our plans to divest CAS will reduce the potential for perceived organizational conflicts of interest for ITT as a top-tier defense contractor. CAS is an outstanding business; however, as we continue to grow our Defense & Information Solutions business revenues in adjacent platforms, we believe CAS would be better positioned for growth with another company.”

CAS is being classified as a discontinued operation, including full-year 2009 revenues of $230 million; and taken together with the Godwin and Canberra acquisitions, the 2010 full-year dilutive impact of these portfolio repositioning activities is expected to be $0.11. The company projects this will be offset by strong operational performance.

“Notwithstanding the one-time impact of our repositioning strategy on our full-year outlook, we are poised for double-digit earnings growth in 2010, building on a best-in-class earnings performance in 2009. The focused execution of our global teams, combined with improving conditions in certain end markets, gives us confidence in our ability to deliver a strong second half and raise our outlook for the full year -- and we are well positioned for sustainable growth over the long term,” Loranger said.

Guidance

For the third quarter of 2010, taking into account customer order patterns and the expected dilutive impact of the portfolio repositioning actions on the quarter, ITT projects adjusted earnings per share will be down 6 percent compared with the year-ago period, in the range of $0.94 to $0.98. Revenue for the third quarter is expected to be up 1 percent to approximately $2.7 billion.

For the full year, taking into account the expected $0.11 impact of acquisitions and discontinued operations, the company projects 2010 adjusted continuing earnings per share guidance will be $4.08 to $4.18. The midpoint of $4.13 represents 11 percent growth compared with the prior year.

Revenue for the full year is expected to grow approximately 3 percent to $11 billion. Organic revenue is expected to grow 2 percent, compared with a previous forecast of 3 percent growth.

Based on current order patterns, the company now projects 2010 Defense & Information Solutions revenue for the full year to be flat, versus a previous forecast of 3 percent growth. Fluid Technology revenue is expected to grow 6 percent, from a previously announced forecast of 5 percent growth, and organic revenue for the segment is expected to be flat. Based on improving market conditions, total revenue growth guidance for Motion & Flow Control is increased to 14 percent from the previous forecast of 6 percent growth, and organic revenue is expected to grow 18 percent.

Key Performance Indicators and Non-GAAP Measures

 
Management reviews key performance metrics including sales and revenues, segment operating income and margins, earnings per share, orders growth, and backlog, among others, in connection with its management of our business. In addition, we consider the following non-GAAP measures to be key performance indicators for purposes of this REG-G reconciliation:
 
Organic Sales and Revenues defined as reported GAAP sales and revenues excluding the impact of foreign currency fluctuations and contributions from acquisitions and divestitures (for the first 12 months). The Company believes that Organic Sales and Revenues provide a useful measure of the operation's underlying revenue performance after adjusting for foreign exchange, acquisitions and divestitures that may impact comparability. The Company utilizes Organic Sales and Revenues to measure, evaluate and manage the Company's revenue performance. The Company's definition of Organic Sales and Revenue may not be comparable to similar measures utilized by other companies.
 
Organic Orders are Non-GAAP performance measures that may provide useful information related to the Company's future revenue performance. Organic Orders exclude the impact of foreign currency fluctuations and contributions from acquisitions and divestitures (for the first 12 months). The Company's definition of Organic Orders may not be comparable to similar measures utilized by other companies.
 
Adjusted Income from Continuing Operations and Adjusted EPS are defined as reported GAAP Income from Continuing Operations and reported GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share, adjusted to exclude Special items. Special items that may include, but are not limited to, unusual and infrequent non-operating items and non-operating tax settlements or adjustments related to prior periods. These items are not a substitute for GAAP measures. Special items represent significant charges or credits that impact current results, but may not be related to the Company’s ongoing operations and performance. The Company uses Adjusted Income from Continuing Operations and Adjusted EPS to measure, evaluate and manage the Company. The Company believes that results excluding Special Items provide a useful analysis of ongoing operating trends. The Company's definitions of Adjusted Income from Continuing Operations and Adjusted EPS may not be comparable to similar measures utilized by other companies.
 
Free Cash Flow is defined as GAAP Net Cash - Operating Activities less Capital Expenditures and other Special Items. Free Cash Flow should not be considered a substitute for income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company's definition of Free Cash Flow may not be comparable to similar measures utilized by other companies. Management believes that Free Cash Flow is an important measure of performance and it is utilized as one measure of the Company's ability to generate cash. Note that due to other financial obligations and commitments, the entire Free Cash Flow amount may not be available for discretionary purposes.
 
Management believes that the above metrics are useful to investors evaluating our operating performance for the periods presented, and provide a tool for evaluating our ongoing operations and our management of assets held from period to period. These metrics, however, are not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for sales and revenue growth (decline), or cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities as determined in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
