AMETEK Announces Record Second Quarter Results and Raises 2021 Guidance

BERWYN, Pa., Aug. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- AMETEK, Inc. (NYSE: AME) today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

AMETEK's second quarter 2021 sales were a record $1.39 billion, a 37% increase over the second quarter of 2020, with organic sales growth of 25%. Operating income increased 39% to a record $316.6 million and operating margins were 22.8%, up 40 basis points over the prior-year period.

On a GAAP basis, second quarter earnings per diluted share were $1.00. Adjusted earnings were a record $1.15 per diluted share, up 37% versus the prior year's adjusted results. Adjusted earnings adds back non-cash, after-tax, acquisition-related intangible amortization of $0.15 per diluted share. A reconciliation of reported GAAP results to adjusted results is included in the financial tables accompanying this release and on the AMETEK website.

"AMETEK delivered outstanding results in the second quarter with record sales, operating income and adjusted earnings," commented David A. Zapico, AMETEK Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Sales growth and operating performance were exceptionally strong while earnings exceeded our expectations. Order growth remains robust and broad-based resulting in a record $2.5 billion in backlog. Additionally, our businesses generated outstanding levels of cash flow with free cash flow conversion a strong 114% of net income."   

Electronic Instruments Group (EIG)
Second quarter EIG sales were a record $933.9 million, up 44% compared to last year's second quarter. EIG's operating income in the quarter was up 42% to $226.6 million, and operating margins were 24.3%.

"EIG performed exceptionally well in the quarter with a record level of sales driven by strong organic growth and contributions from the recent acquisitions," noted Mr. Zapico. "EIG also delivered superb operating performance with operating income up more than 40% and strong core operating margin expansion."

Electromechanical Group (EMG)
EMG sales in the second quarter were $452.4 million, an increase of 24% over the second quarter of 2020. Operating income for EMG increased 33% over the prior-year period to a record $112.4 million, and operating margins were up 170 basis points to a record 24.9%.

"EMG had an exceptional quarter with strong sales growth and outstanding operating performance," commented Mr. Zapico. "Our team's tremendous efforts during the pandemic positioned us well to benefit from the recovery resulting in robust margin expansion."

2021 Outlook
"We are pleased with AMETEK's performance through the first half of the year. Sales and orders growth has been broad based as the global economy continues its recovery. Our businesses are executing extremely well, generating strong levels of cash flow which firmly position us to continue investing in growth opportunities including strategic acquisitions. This outstanding performance, along with our proven ability to manage well through various economic cycles, reflects the strength and sustainable nature of the AMETEK Growth Model," continued Mr. Zapico.  

"Following our second quarter results, we are increasing our guidance for the year. For 2021, we now expect overall sales to be up approximately 20% with organic sales up approximately 10%. Adjusted earnings per diluted share are expected to be in the range of $4.62 to $4.68, up 17% to 18% over 2020 and an increase from our previous guidance range of $4.48 to $4.56 per diluted share," he added.

"We expect overall sales in the third quarter to be up in the mid-20% range compared to the third quarter of 2020. Adjusted earnings per diluted share are anticipated to be in the range of $1.16 to $1.18, up 15% to 17% over the same period in 2020," concluded Mr. Zapico.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
 
The Company supplements its consolidated financial statements presented on a U.S. generally accepted accounting principles
("GAAP") basis with certain non–GAAP financial information to provide investors with greater insight, increased transparency and
allow for a more comprehensive understanding of the information used by management in its financial and operational decision-
making. Reconciliation of non–GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures are included in the accompanying
financial tables. These non–GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a replacement for, or superior
to, the comparable GAAP measure, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
 
The Company believes that these measures provide useful information to investors by reflecting additional ways of viewing
AMETEK's operations that, when reconciled to the comparable GAAP measure, helps our investors to better understand the long-
term profitability trends of our business, and facilitates easier comparisons of our profitability to prior and future periods and to our peers.
