Colfax Reports Second Quarter 2019 Results

Achieved results ahead of expectations
Delivered 3% sales growth in Medical Technology segment including 3% organic improvement
Grew Fabrication Technology sales 6% including 4% organic growth; improved year-over-year segment operating income and adjusted EBITA margins by 100 and 90 basis points, respectively
Moved Air & Gas Handling segment to discontinued operations, expect to complete divestiture this year

ANNAPOLIS JUNCTION, MD - August 6, 2019 - Colfax Corporation (NYSE: CFX), a leading diversified technology company, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2019.

The Company reported a net loss of $466.6 million or $3.45 per share in the quarter, which includes a non-cash charge of $3.48 per share for the pending divestiture of its Air & Gas Handling business that is mostly attributable to the recognition of cumulative foreign currency translation effects from the long-term strengthening of the U.S. Dollar. Excluding the divestiture impacts, strategic transaction costs, restructuring expenses and acquisition-related amortization costs, the Company reported fully consolidated adjusted net income of $0.64 per share in the second quarter 2019 versus $0.61 in the second quarter of 2018. This quarter’s results included double-digit order growth in the Air & Gas Handling segment, which is expected to be divested later this year and is reflected as a discontinued operation in the Company’s financial statements.

On a continuing operations basis, Colfax reported second quarter net sales of $909 million, net income from continuing operations of $0.01 per share, and adjusted earnings of $0.54 per share. The Fabrication Technology segment organically grew 4% with flat volumes, and the Medical Technology segment organically expanded 3% versus the prior year period. Second quarter adjusted EBITA was $127 million with adjusted EBITA margin of 14.0%, reflecting the first quarter acquisition of the higher-margin Medical Technology segment and improvements in the Fabrication Technology segment. Fabrication Technology achieved operating income margin of 13.7% and adjusted EBITA margin of 15.2%, a 90-basis point increase in adjusted EBITA margin compared to the prior year second quarter as a result of improved pricing, productivity, and cost reductions.

“We are pleased to report strong performance across our segments,” said Matt Trerotola, Colfax President and CEO. “MedTech’s revenue growth is ramping up, reflecting improving operational execution in Prevention and Rehabilitation and double-digit growth in the Reconstructive product line. The FabTech segment delivered healthy organic growth and made steady progress toward our margin goal. Our focused commercial strategy, innovation, and customer service levels in FabTech resulted in growth in nearly all regional markets.”

“Over the past several years, we made strategic and structural operating improvements to the Air & Gas Handling business to significantly improve its margins and reposition it in faster-growing markets. This enabled us to sign an agreement to sell the business at a more attractive value. The sale contractual contingencies have expired, most regulatory approvals have been received, and we continue to expect the transaction to close this year. We have reshaped our portfolio to be higher-margin, less cyclical and with more consistent cash flow.”

The Company also announced that it continues to expect its businesses to achieve the previously announced 2019 adjusted EPS guidance of $2.55 to $2.65 on a fully consolidated basis, which represents $1.90 to $2.00 from continuing operations. Colfax expects third quarter 2019 adjusted EPS from continuing operations of $0.45 to $0.50. Colfax will provide additional guidance and pro forma information in its call with investors scheduled for later today.

Conference Call and Webcast

Colfax will host a conference call to provide details about its results today at 8:00 a.m. EDT. The call will be open to the public by calling 877-303-7908 (U.S. callers) or +1-678-373-0875 (international callers) and referencing the conference ID number 6778466 or through webcast via Colfax’s website at www.colfaxcorp.com under the “Investors” section. Access to a supplemental slide presentation can also be found at the Colfax website under the same heading. Both the audio of this call and the slide presentation will be archived on the website later today and will be available until the next quarterly call.




About Colfax Corporation

Colfax Corporation is a leading diversified technology company that provides orthopedic and fabrication technology products and services to customers around the world, principally under the DJO and ESAB brands. Colfax believes that its brands are among the most highly recognized in each of the markets that it serves. The Company uses its Colfax Business System (“CBS”), a comprehensive set of tools, processes and values, to create superior value for customers, shareholders and associates. Colfax’s common stock is traded on the NYSE under the ticker “CFX.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Adjustments

Colfax has provided in this press release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures are adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, adjusted EBITA (earnings before interest, taxes and amortization), adjusted EBITA margin, and organic sales growth. Colfax also provides adjusted EBITA and adjusted EBITA margin on a segment basis.

Adjusted net income from continuing operations represents net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to Colfax excluding restructuring and other related charges, debt extinguishment charges, acquisition-related amortization and other non-cash charges, strategic transaction costs, and gain or loss on short-term investments related to the 2017 divestiture of its Fluid Handling business. The effective tax rates used to calculate adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share were 20.1% and 23.0% for the three and six months ended June 28, 2019 and 11.0% and 12.9% for the three and six months ended June 29, 2018, respectively. Adjusted net income per share represents adjusted net income as defined above divided by the weighted-average diluted shares outstanding.

Adjusted EBITA represents net income (loss) from continuing operations excluding restructuring and other related charges, acquisition-related amortization and other non-cash charges, and strategic transaction costs, as well as provision (benefit) for income taxes, (gain) loss on short-term investments, and interest expense, net. Colfax presents adjusted EBITA margin, which is subject to the same adjustments as Adjusted EBITA. Further, Colfax presents adjusted EBITA (and adjusted EBITA margin) on a segment basis, where it excludes the impact of strategic transaction costs and acquisition-related amortization and other non-cash charges from segment operating income.

Organic sales growth excludes the impact of acquisitions and foreign exchange rate fluctuations from total changes in sales.

These non-GAAP financial measures assist Colfax management in comparing its operating performance over time because certain items may obscure underlying business trends and make comparisons of long-term performance difficult, as they are of a nature and/or size that occur with inconsistent frequency or relate to discrete restructuring plans that are fundamentally different from the ongoing productivity improvements of the Company. Colfax management also believes that presenting these measures allows investors to view its performance using the same measures that the Company uses in evaluating its financial and business performance and trends.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information calculated in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures presented above to GAAP results has been provided in the financial tables included in this press release.

In this document, Colfax presents forward-looking adjusted EPS guidance. Colfax does not provide an EPS outlook on a GAAP basis because changes in the items that Colfax excludes from GAAP to calculate the comparable EPS measure can be dependent on future events that are less capable of being controlled or reliably predicted by management and are not part of Colfax’s routine operating activities. Additionally, management does not forecast many of the excluded items for internal use and therefore cannot create or rely on an outlook presented on a GAAP basis.

CAUTIONARY NOTE CONCERNING FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

This press release may contain forward-looking statements, including forward-looking statements within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements concerning Colfax’s plans, objectives, expectations and intentions and other statements that are not historical or current fact. Forward-looking statements are based on Colfax’s current expectations and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause Colfax’s results to differ materially from current expectations include, but are not limited to, the pending sale of our Air & Gas Handling



segment and the factors detailed in Colfax’s reports filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission including its 2018 Annual Report on Form 10-K under the caption “Risk Factors.” In addition, these statements are based on assumptions that are subject to change. This press release speaks only as of the date hereof. Colfax disclaims any duty to update the information herein.

The term “Colfax” in reference to the activities described in this press release may mean one or more of Colfax’s global operating subsidiaries and/or their internal business divisions and does not necessarily indicate activities engaged in by Colfax Corporation.
