• Revenue growth of 6% (10% organic) driven by strong demand in Connect & Control Technologies (CCT) and Industrial Process (IP), and pricing actions across all businesses
  • Orders up 10% (13% organic) on strong pump, connectors and aerospace components demand
  • Deployed ~$275 million, including over $60 million for share repurchases, $172 million to M&A and ITT Ventures investments
  • Raising organic sales guidance and tightening full year EPS guidance ranges

STAMFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–August 4, 2022–ITT Inc. (NYSE: ITT) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended July 2, 2022. The company reported a year-over-year revenue increase of 6.0%, up 9.6% on an organic basis, primarily driven by demand in connectors and components in CCT, short-cycle in IP, growth in Motion Technologies (MT) Friction, and pricing actions in all businesses. This was partially offset by a 5.8% unfavorable impact from U.S. dollar appreciation and reduced volumes stemming from the war in Ukraine. The acquisition of Habonim also contributed 2.2% to revenue growth.

Segment operating income was flat compared to prior year. Segment operating margin of 15.6% for the second quarter declined 90 basis points versus prior year primarily resulting from higher raw material and overhead costs, and restructuring, which was mitigated through pricing, productivity, and higher sales volumes in IP and CCT.

Earnings per share for the second quarter of $0.91 increased 102% versus prior year primarily due to a $37.2 million after-tax loss in 2021 stemming from the asbestos divestiture. Adjusted earnings per share of $0.98 for the second quarter of 2022 increased 4% compared to prior year driven primarily by higher sales and benefits from share repurchases.

Operating cash flow for the year-to-date period increased $285.8 million versus prior year to $54.2 million, compared to an outflow in the prior year of $231.6 million which included a $398.0 million payment to fund the asbestos divestiture. Excluding the impact of the asbestos payment, operating cash flow declined $112.2 million driven by an increase in working capital investments to support volume growth and to mitigate continued supply chain disruptions. Operating cash flow for the second quarter improved $59.6 million sequentially.

Management Commentary

“ITT delivered solid results in the second quarter. We grew organic revenue by 10%, including 25% growth in Connect & Control Technologies. The strong demand and share gains in Industrial Process and in CCT drove 26% and 17% organic orders growth, respectively, in the second quarter. We grew adjusted earnings per share sequentially and year over year thanks to strong sales growth and margin expansion at IP and CCT despite a 60 basis point decline in adjusted segment margin driven by supply chain challenges and inflation. And, we deployed nearly $275 million this quarter, bringing our total capital deployed for the first half of 2022 to over $500 million.

As we demonstrated at our investor day, we are well positioned to drive long-term growth and value creation. Motion Technologies continues to win new EV platform awards thanks to our differentiation in innovation and execution and we are making significant progress on pricing. CCT is seeing robust demand for connectors and components, leveraging our strength in aerospace and defense. Lastly, our IP team is driving strong growth in its short-cycle business while leveraging the differentiation of our portfolio to capture pricing benefits. I am also encouraged by the performance of our recent acquisition, Habonim, in its first quarter as part of ITT,” continued Savi.

Savi concluded, “We keep on delivering and investing in growth and innovation. We ramped up investments in Friction to support new EV awards, and accelerated the product redesigns in IP and CCT to sustain our differentiation. We delivered strong sequential and year-over-year margin improvements in IP and CCT. As we committed, we are executing on capital deployment on all fronts, and stepped up M&A activities and ITT Ventures investments. Collectively, we are building on our solid foundations, and I am confident in our ability to deliver our long-term financial targets in any environment.”

Note: all results unaudited; excludes intercompany eliminations of $0.8; comparisons to Q2 2021

Motion Technologies revenue decreased primarily due to unfavorable foreign currency translation of $28.6 million. Organic revenue increased 5% due to growth in Friction, strength in Wolverine sealings, and pricing actions. Operating income decreased from $64.7 million to $47.0 million primarily due to higher raw material inflation, partially offset by pricing and productivity.

Industrial Process revenue increased primarily driven by growth in our short-cycle business within the general industrial and chemical markets, partially offset by a decline in pump projects. Operating income increased from $31.5 million to $39.1 million driven by productivity, pricing, and favorable product mix, partially offset by higher raw material costs.

Connect & Control Technologies revenue increased primarily driven by a strong performance in industrial connectors and strength in aerospace components. Operating income increased from $17.9 million to $28.2 million driven by productivity, higher sales volume and pricing, partially offset by higher raw material costs and unfavorable sales mix.

2022 Guidance

There is no change to the company’s total revenue, margin, and free cash flow guidance. We continue to expect revenue growth of 7% to 9%, and now expect growth of 10% to 12% on an organic basis; segment operating margin of 17.5% to 18.4%, and adjusted segment operating margin of 17.6% to 18.5%, up 40 to 130 bps; and free cash flow of $250 million to $300 million, representing free cash flow margin of 8% to 10% for the full year. We now expect EPS of $4.12 to $4.45, and adjusted EPS of $4.35 to $4.65, up 7% to 15% for the full year.

The company’s 2022 guidance assumes continued disruptions in the global supply chain stemming from labor shortages, supplier delays, and high raw material prices, which we anticipate will persist throughout 2022. The guidance also assumes a significant reduction in sales in Russia stemming from the war in Ukraine, which we currently estimate will impact revenue by approximately $80 million for the full year.

  • failure of portfolio management strategies, including cost-saving initiatives, to meet expectations;
  • risks related to government contracting, including changes in levels of government spending and regulatory and contractual requirements applicable to sales to the U.S. government;
  • fluctuations in our effective tax rate, including as a result of possible tax reform legislation in the U.S. and other jurisdictions;

  • failure to comply with the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (or other applicable anti-corruption legislation), export controls and trade sanctions, including tariffs;
  • risk of product liability claims and litigation; and
  • changes in laws relating to the use and transfer of personal and other information.

Key Performance Indicators and Non-GAAP Measures
 
Management reviews a variety of key performance indicators including revenue, segment operating income and margins, earnings per share, order growth, and backlog, some of which are calculated on a non-GAAP basis. In addition, we consider certain measures to be useful to management and investors when evaluating our operating performance for the periods presented. These measures provide a tool for evaluating our ongoing operations and management of assets from period to period. This information can assist investors in assessing our financial performance and measures our ability to generate capital for deployment among competing strategic alternatives and initiatives, including, but not limited to, acquisitions, dividends, and share repurchases. Some of these metrics, however, are not measures of financial performance under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP) and should not be considered a substitute for measures determined in accordance with GAAP. We consider the following non-GAAP measures, which may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies, to be key performance indicators for purposes of our reconciliation tables.
 
Organic Revenues and Organic Orders are defined, respectively, as revenue and orders, excluding the impacts of foreign currency fluctuations and acquisitions. The period-over-period change resulting from foreign currency fluctuations is estimated using a fixed exchange rate for both the current and prior periods. Management believes that reporting organic revenue and organic orders provides useful information to investors by helping identify underlying trends in our business and facilitating comparisons of our revenue performance with prior and future periods and to our peers.
 
Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted Segment Operating Income are defined, respectively, as total operating income and segment operating income, adjusted to exclude special items that include, but are not limited to, restructuring, severance, certain asset impairment charges, certain acquisition-related impacts, unusual or infrequent operating items and, for 2021, asbestos-related impacts. Special items represent charges or credits that impact current results, which management views as unrelated to the Company’s ongoing operations and performance. Adjusted Operating Margin and Adjusted Segment Operating Margin are defined as adjusted operating income or adjusted segment operating income, respectively, divided by revenue. We believe these financial measures are useful to investors and other users of our financial statements in evaluating ongoing operating profitability, as well as in evaluating operating performance in relation to our competitors.
 
Adjusted Income from Continuing Operations and Adjusted EPS are defined, respectively, as income from continuing operations attributable to ITT Inc. and income from continuing operations attributable to ITT Inc. per diluted share, adjusted to exclude special items that include, but are not limited to, restructuring, severance, certain asset impairment charges, certain acquisition-related impacts, income tax settlements or adjustments, unusual or infrequent items, and, for 2021, asbestos-related impacts. Special items represent charges or credits, on an after-tax basis, that impact current results which management views as unrelated to the Company’s ongoing operations and performance. The after-tax basis of each special item is determined using the jurisdictional tax rate of where the expense or benefit occurred. We believe that adjusted income from continuing operations is useful to investors and other users of our financial statements in evaluating ongoing operating profitability, as well as in evaluating operating performance in relation to our competitors.
 
Free Cash Flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. Free Cash Flow Margin is defined as free cash flow divided by revenue. We believe that free cash flow and free cash flow margin provides useful information to investors as it provides insight into a primary cash flow metric used by management to monitor and evaluate cash flows generated by our operations.
