08/06/2021

RALEIGH, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Vontier Corporation (“Vontier”) (NYSE: VNT) today announced results for the second quarter 2021.

For the second quarter ended July 2, 2021, net earnings were $82.3 million and adjusted net earnings were $104.4 million. For the second quarter ended July 2, 2021, diluted net earnings per share were $0.48 and adjusted diluted net earnings per share were $0.61.

For the second quarter of 2021, revenue increased 35.8% year-over-year to $724.6 million, which reflected an increase in core revenue of 32.7%.

Mark D. Morelli, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “The team’s continued strong execution and rigorous application of the Vontier Business System delivered another quarter exceeding our expectations on all metrics with 33% core revenue growth, substantial operating margin expansion and 69% adjusted earnings per share growth. Robust order growth, healthy secular trends, and our second quarter performance position us for another quality increase to our full-year 2021 outlook.”

For the third quarter of 2021, Vontier anticipates diluted net earnings per share to be in the range of $0.63 to $0.66 and adjusted diluted net earnings per share to be in the range of $0.71 to $0.74. For the full year 2021, Vontier anticipates diluted net earnings per share to be in the range of $2.39 to $2.44 and adjusted diluted net earnings per share to be in the range of $2.77 to $2.82.

Mr. Morelli added, “In addition to the strong second quarter results, I’m also very pleased with the progress the team has made on our highest impact strategic priorities. Our profitable growth initiatives are delivering ahead of plan, and we substantially accelerated our portfolio diversification strategy with our recent announcement to acquire DRB Systems, LLC. Our work continues; we remain committed to investing in our organic and inorganic opportunities, driving accelerated growth and creating value as we continue our transformation.”

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

In addition to the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this earnings release also references “adjusted net earnings,” “adjusted diluted net earnings per share,” and “core revenue” which are non-GAAP financial measures.

The non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the GAAP financial measures, but should instead be read in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measures used by Vontier in this release may be different from similarly-titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

VONTIER CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
AND OTHER INFORMATION

Adjusted Net Earnings and Adjusted Diluted Net Earnings per Share

We disclose the non-GAAP measures of adjusted net earnings and adjusted diluted net earnings per share which, to the extent applicable, make the following adjustments to GAAP net earnings and GAAP diluted net earnings per share:

  • Excluding on a pretax basis amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets;
  • Excluding on a pretax basis restructuring and other termination costs and severance benefits (“Restructuring Costs”);
  • Excluding on a pretax basis (to the extent tax deductible) charges for goodwill impairment;
  • Excluding on a pretax basis transaction- and deal-related costs;
  • Excluding on a pretax basis gains and losses from the sale of property;
  • Excluding on a pretax basis earnings attributable to noncontrolling interests;
  • Excluding on a pretax basis one-time costs related to the separation;
  • Excluding on a pretax basis non-cash write-offs of deferred financing costs;
  • Excluding on a pretax basis other charges which represent charges incurred that are not part of our core operating results;
  • Including on a pretax basis pro-forma interest expense on debt entered into subsequent to period end;
  • Including on a pretax basis normalization and other adjustments which represent adjustments for standalone public company costs; and
  • Excluding and including the tax effect of the adjustments noted above and other tax adjustments. The tax effect of such adjustments was calculated by applying our overall estimated effective tax rate to the pretax amount of each adjustment (unless the nature of the item and/or the tax jurisdiction in which the item has been recorded requires application of a specific tax rate or tax treatment, in which case the tax effect of such item is estimated by applying such specific tax rate or tax treatment).

Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors by reflecting additional ways of viewing aspects of our operations that, when reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measure, help our investors to understand the long-term profitability trends of our business, and facilitate comparisons of our profitability to prior and future periods and to our peers.

These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a replacement for or superior to, the comparable GAAP measures, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Core Revenue

We define sales from existing businesses (“Core Revenue”) as total sales excluding (i) sales from acquired and divested businesses; (ii) the impact of currency translation; and (iii) certain other items.

  • References to sales attributable to acquisitions or acquired businesses refer to GAAP sales from acquired businesses recorded prior to the first anniversary of the acquisition less the amount of sales attributable to certain divested businesses or product lines not considered discontinued operations.
  • The portion of sales attributable to the impact of currency translation is calculated as the difference between (a) the period-to-period change in sales (excluding sales from acquired businesses) and (b) the period-to-period change in sales, including foreign operations, (excluding sales from acquired businesses) after applying the current period foreign exchange rates to the prior year period.
  • The portion of sales attributable to other items is calculated as the impact of those items which are not directly correlated to sales from existing businesses which do not have an impact on the current or comparable period.

Management believes that reporting the non-GAAP financial measure of sales from existing businesses provides useful information to investors by helping identify underlying growth trends in our business and facilitating easier comparisons of our sales performance with our performance in prior and future periods and to our peers. We exclude the effect of acquisitions and divestiture-related items because the nature, size and number of such transactions can vary dramatically from period to period and between us and our peers. We exclude the effect of currency translation and certain other items from sales from existing businesses because these items are either not under management’s control or relate to items not directly correlated to sales from existing businesses. Management believes the exclusion of these items from sales from existing businesses may facilitate assessment of underlying business trends and may assist in comparisons of long-term performance.

Sales from existing businesses should be considered in addition to, and not as a replacement for or superior to, total sales, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
