Cameron Q3 Earnings Release

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Cameron Q3 Earnings Release07:30 EDT Wednesday, October 31, 2012HOUSTON, Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cameron (NYSE: CAM) today reported net income of $223.6 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012, or $0.90 per diluted share. Earnings per share increased over 34 percent compared to the third quarter 2011 earnings of $0.67 per fully diluted share.Charges for the third quarter of 2012 were $3.4 million pre-tax, primarily related to integration costs. Earnings per share for the third quarter of 2012 excluding these charges was $0.91. Charges for the third quarter 2011 were $34.2 million pre-tax, which were related to retiring the Company's convertible debentures, litigation, and mark-to-market losses associated with foreign currency derivatives. Earnings per share for the third quarter of 2011 excluding these charges was $0.78.Year-over-year revenues increase in every segmentRevenues of $2.2 billion for the quarter were at a record level, up nearly 32 percent from $1.7 billion a year ago.  Income before income taxes was $269.8 million, up over 36 percent from $198.0 million a year ago. Cameron Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jack B. Moore said that the year-over-year revenue increases were due to double digit revenue gains in all three of the Company's segments. "In addition, the Company's EBITDA margin improved sequentially, with both Drilling & Productions Systems (DPS) and Process & Compression Systems (PCS) registering gains," Moore said.Year-over-year orders increase 15% Total orders were $2.3 billion for the quarter, up from $2.0 billion in the third quarter of 2011, for an increase of 15%.  Moore noted that orders continue to be near record levels reflecting the breadth of the Company's products and served markets. Moore also noted record bookings were established for the surface business, despite weaknesses in the North American rig count. Cameron's backlog at the end of the third quarter was $7.6 billion, up from the beginning of the year level of $6.0 billion and up from $5.8 billion a year ago.  Moore noted that this is a record backlog for the Company. "This reflects over 30% growth from a year ago", Moore stated, "While overall market growth in North America is under pressure, the Company's outlook for the fourth quarter is robust, with visibility to orders in the international and deepwater markets. Additionally, we continue to gain share in our surface North America market."Capital investment continues. Balance sheet strong Cameron's cash flow from operations was $138.2 million year-to-date. Moore said cash flow from operations should accelerate in the fourth quarter as Cameron's working capital needs are expected to continue to moderate. Moore also noted that Cameron spent approximately $280 million in capital expenditures year-to-date. "We anticipate capital spending to approximate $500 million for 2012," Moore said, "as we focus on investments in our aftermarket and unconventional resource related businesses, as well as our Brazilian capacity expansion." Fourth quarter earnings guidance Moore said Cameron's fourth quarter earnings are expected to be in the range of $0.95 to $0.97 per share, excluding charges. Cameron (NYSE: CAM) is a leading provider of flow equipment products, systems and services to worldwide oil, gas and process industries.Website: www.c-a-m.comIn addition to the historical data contained herein, this document includes forward-looking statements regarding future orders, cash flow and earnings of the Company (including fourth quarter earnings per share estimates), as well as expectations regarding working capital needs and capital expenditures, made in reliance upon the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.  The Company's actual results may differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements.  Such statements are based on current expectations of the Company's performance and are subject to a variety of factors, some of which are not under the control of the Company, which can affect the Company's results of operations, liquidity or financial condition.  Such factors may include overall demand for, and pricing of, the Company's products; the size and timing of orders; the Company's ability to successfully execute the large subsea and drilling systems projects it has been awarded; the possibility of cancellations of orders; the Company's ability to convert backlog into revenues on a timely and profitable basis; the impact of acquisitions the Company has made or may make; changes in the price of (and demand for) oil and gas in both domestic and international markets; raw material costs and availability; political and social issues affecting the countries in which the Company does business; fluctuations in currency markets worldwide; and variations in global economic activity.  In particular, current and projected oil and gas prices historically have generally directly affected customers' spending levels and their related purchases of the Company's products and services.  Additionally, changes in oil and gas price expectations may impact the Company's financial results due to changes it may make in its cost structure, staffing or spending levels.Because the information herein is based solely on data currently available, it is subject to change as a result of changes in conditions over which the Company has no control or influence, and should not therefore be viewed as assurance regarding the Company's future performance.  Additionally, the Company is not obligated to make public indication of such changes unless required under applicable disclosure rules and regulations. CameronUnaudited Consolidated Condensed Results of Operations($ and shares in millions
