ANNAPOLIS JUNCTION, MD - July 28, 2016 - Colfax Corporation (NYSE: CFX), a leading global manufacturer of gas- and fluid-handling and fabrication technology products and services, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended July 1, 2016.

For the second quarter of 2016, net income was $39.8 million, or $0.32 per dilutive share, compared to $53.1 million, or $0.42 per share, for the second quarter of 2015. Adjusted net income (as defined below) was $50.3 million, or $0.41 per share, compared to $63.0 million for the second quarter of 2015, or $0.50 per share.

Net sales were $957.2 million in the second quarter, a decrease of 6.7% from the prior year. Net sales decreased 5.6% organically compared to the second quarter of 2015. Second quarter operating income was $73.1 million, with adjusted operating income (as defined below) of $87.6 million. Operating income margin for the second quarter was 7.6% and adjusted operating income margin (as defined below) was 9.1% in the second quarter.

Second quarter gas- and fluid-handling orders decreased by 11.3% to $445.7 million compared to orders of $502.3 million for the second quarter of 2015, an organic order decline of 15.5%. Gas- and fluid-handling finished the period with backlog of $1,068.9 million.

For the six months ended July 1, 2016 net income was $62.4 million, or $0.51 per dilutive share. Adjusted net income (as defined below) was $87.2 million, or $0.71 per share. Net sales for the six months ended July 1, 2016 were $1.8 billion, a decrease of 5.3% compared to net sales for the six months ended June 26, 2015. Operating income for the six months ended July 1, 2016 was $121.5 million, with adjusted operating income (as defined below) of $153.7 million. Operating income margin for the six months ended July 1, 2016 was 6.6% and adjusted operating income margin (as defined below) for the six months ended July 1, 2016 was 8.4%.

Adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating income margin, organic sales decrease and organic order decrease are not financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. ("GAAP"). See below for a description of the measures' usefulness and a reconciliation of these measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Matthew Trerotola, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We delivered another solid performance in the second quarter despite ongoing market headwinds. We have several bright spots gaining momentum in the business, especially in our Fabrication Technology segment where our cost and productivity efforts are improving financial performance. However, we continue to see oil and gas project delays and weakness in our Gas and Fluid Handling markets. In response, we have initiated additional, structural cost reduction actions to improve profitability even if the market does not return to growth in near term."

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 operating income, adjusted operating income margin, organic sales decrease and organic order decrease. Adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, adjusted operating income and adjusted operating income margin exclude Restructuring and other related charges. Adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share for the three and six months ended June 26, 2015 exclude the write-off of certain deferred financing fees and original issue discount associated with the refinancing of Colfax's credit agreement. The effective tax rates used to calculate adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share are 30.9% and 30.1% for the three and six months ended July 1, 2016, respectively. The effective tax rates used to calculate adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share are 28.3% and 28.8% for the three and six months ended June 26, 2015, respectively. Organic sales decrease and organic order decrease exclude the impact of acquisitions and foreign exchange rate fluctuations. These non-GAAP financial measures assist Colfax in comparing its operating performance on a consistent basis because, among other things, they remove the impact of restructuring and other related charges and write-off of certain deferred financing fees and original issue discount.

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.
