  • GAAP earnings per diluted share (EPS) of $1.84.
  • Excluding Special Items, EPS of $1.66 increased 44% compared to $1.15 in the first quarter of 2020.

Crane Co. (NYSE: CR), a diversified manufacturer of highly engineered industrial products, reported first quarter 2021 financial results and updated its full-year 2021 outlook.

Max Mitchell, Crane Co. President and Chief Executive Officer stated: “We delivered exceptionally strong results in the first quarter. Each of our three global strategic growth platforms delivered robust results ahead of expectations, with Crane Currency driving the most substantial outperformance in the quarter. Across all of our businesses and end markets, while uncertainty still exists, we continue to see strengthening underlying trends. In addition, we continue to drive growth above market rates through our consistent investment in technology and strategic growth initiatives. We are extremely well positioned to continue this outgrowth as end markets recover, and we expect strong operating leverage given our consistently solid execution. We look forward to providing additional details of our growth outlook specifically at Aerospace & Electronics during our upcoming May 26 virtual investor event."

"Considering our strong performance in the first quarter and improving market conditions, we are raising our adjusted EPS guidance by $0.65 to a range of $5.65-$5.85 reflecting a 50% year-over-year increase in adjusted EPS. We have clear momentum from strengthening markets, as well as increasing traction with our growth initiatives, and I am confident that we are on a path to generate substantial and sustainable value for all of our stakeholders.”

First Quarter 2021 Results

First quarter 2021 GAAPearnings per diluted share (EPS) of $1.84, compared to $1.05 in the first quarter of 2020. First quarter 2021 GAAP EPS included an $0.18 gain primarily related to the sale of real estate. Excluding Special Items, first quarter 2021 EPS was $1.66, compared to $1.15 in the first quarter of 2020. (Please see the attached Non-GAAP Financial Measures tables for a detailed reconciliation of reported results to adjusted measures.)

First quarter 2021 sales were $834 million, an increase of 5% compared to the first quarter of 2020. The sales increase was comprised of a $25 million, or 3%, benefit from favorable foreign exchange, a $5 million, or 1%, increase in core sales, and a $5 million, or 1%, benefit from an acquisition.

First quarter 2021 operating profit was $146 million, compared to $89 million in the first quarter of 2020. Operating profit margin was 17.6%, compared to 11.1% last year, with the improvement driven primarily by benefits of 2020 cost actions, productivity, and continued strong performance at Crane Currency.

Excluding Special Items, operating profit margin was 16.2%, compared to 12.0% last year.

Cash Flow and Other Financial Metrics

Cash provided by operating activities in the first quarter of 2021 was $50 million, compared to a use of $36 million in the first quarter of 2020. Capital expenditures in the first quarter of 2021 were $5 million, compared to $8 million last year. First quarter 2021 free cash flow (cash provided by operating activities less capital spending) was positive $45 million and compared to negative $43 million last year.

During the first quarter, we received cash proceeds of $15 million from the sale of real estate in Long Beach, California that was recorded as cash from investing activities, and consequently, excluded from free cash flow. The property sale was enabled by prior repositioning activities that relocated our Long Beach manufacturing operations to other facilities. Since 2017, we have received proceeds from the sale of real estate and other assets facilitated by repositioning activities of approximately $47 million.

The Company held cash and short-term investments of $588 million at March 31, 2021, compared to $581 million at December 31, 2020. Total debt was $1,190 million at March 31, 2021, compared to $1,219 million at December 31, 2020.

On April 15, 2021, the company repaid its $343 million 364-day term loan. As this repayment was subsequent to the end of the first quarter, it is not reflected in our cash or debt balances as of March 31, 2021.

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Certain non-GAAP measures are provided in this presentation. Management believes that non-GAAP financial measures which exclude certain non-recurring items present additional useful comparisons between current results and results in prior operating periods. Specifically, management believes that, when considered together with reported amounts, these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors and management in understanding ongoing operations and by providing a clearer view of the underlying trends of the business. In addition, Free Cash Flow provides supplemental information to assist investors and management in analyzing the Company’s ability to generate liquidity from its operating activities. The measure of Free Cash Flow does not take into consideration certain other non-discretionary cash requirements such as, for example, mandatory principal payments on the Company's long-term debt. Management uses non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating the Company's core operating results and financial performance. Non-GAAP financial measures, which may be inconsistent with similarly captioned measures presented by other companies, should be viewed as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, the Company’s reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of the Company’s non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP results are included in the tables at the end of this press release.
