    WILSONVILLE, Ore., Feb. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FLIR Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:FLIR) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2017. Commenting on these results, Jim Cannon, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are pleased with our fourth quarter results, particularly the revenue growth and double-digit adjusted earnings growth. We reached our highest quarterly adjusted operating margin since 2012, finishing a year that saw record levels of revenue and adjusted earnings per share. This was accomplished during a year of transition that included an operational realignment, changes to the management team, and portfolio rationalization that resulted in the divestment of our Lorex security business. I am proud of our employees and how they have delivered in 2017.”

    Mr. Cannon continued, “We have positive momentum as we enter 2018. We are committed to accomplishing our task of exceeding shareholders’ expectations with integrity as we fuel, feed, and focus our businesses, instill a culture of continuous business improvement through the deployment of The FLIR Method, and generate cash for accretive high-return investments.”

    Fourth Quarter 2017

    Fourth quarter 2017 revenue was $494.8 million, up 4% over fourth quarter 2016 revenue of $474.7 million. Organic revenue growth was 2% with prior year acquisitions contributing approximately 2% of revenue growth in the quarter.

    GAAP Earnings Results

    GAAP operating income in the fourth quarter declined 16% to $77.2 million, compared to $92.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. GAAP operating income in the current quarter was negatively impacted by a $23.6 million non-cash loss on net assets held for sale related to the Lorex retail and small and medium-sized business (SMB) portion of the Security segment. GAAP operating margin decreased to 15.6%, compared with 19.4% in the fourth quarter of 2016.

    Fourth quarter 2017 GAAP net loss was $50.3 million, or ($0.36) per diluted share, compared with GAAP net earnings of $61.5 million, or $0.45 per diluted share in the fourth quarter a year ago. GAAP net earnings were negatively impacted by the non-cash loss on the net assets held for sale as well as $92.7 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, of discrete tax items associated with the enactment of U.S. tax reform.

    Cash provided by operations was $98.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2017, compared to $97.1 million in the fourth quarter of the prior year.

    Non-GAAP Earnings Results

    Adjusted operating income was $111.7 million in the fourth quarter, which was 8% higher than adjusted operating income of $103.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. Adjusted operating margin increased 90 basis points to 22.6%, compared with 21.7% in the fourth quarter of 2016.

    Adjusted net earnings in the fourth quarter were $81.8 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, which was 12% higher than adjusted earnings per diluted share of $0.52 in the fourth quarter of 2016. 

    Segment Results

    Revenue from the Surveillance segment was $151.0 million, a decline of 5% from the fourth quarter results of last year. The Instruments segment contributed $102.6 million of revenue during the fourth quarter, up 7% over the prior year. The Security segment recorded revenue of $71.0 million in the fourth quarter, down 3% from the prior year. FLIR’s OEM & Emerging Markets segment had $87.7 million of revenue, an increase of 15% over the prior year, which was driven by the addition of the Integrated Imaging Solutions line of business near the end of the fourth quarter of 2016. Revenue from the Maritime segment was $43.8 million, which was 14% higher than the fourth quarter of 2016. The Detection segment contributed $38.7 million of revenue, an increase of 18% over the prior year, and was driven by timing of DR-SKO program shipments.

    Full Year 2017

    For the full year, revenue was $1,800.4 million, up 8% compared to $1,662.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2016. Organic revenue growth was 2% with prior year acquisitions contributing approximately 6% of revenue growth in 2017.

    GAAP Earnings Results

    GAAP operating income for 2017 was $290.0 million, compared to $295.7 million in 2016, with 2017 being negatively impacted by the non-cash loss on net assets held for sale. GAAP operating margin was 16.1% in 2017, compared with 17.8% in 2016.

    2017 GAAP net earnings were $107.2 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, which compares to 2016 GAAP net earnings of $166.6 million, or $1.20 per diluted share. GAAP earnings in the current year were negatively impacted by the non-cash loss on net assets held for sale and $58.4 million higher discrete tax items compared to the prior year.

    Cash provided by operations during 2017 was $308.3 million, compared to $319.8 million in the prior year.

    Non-GAAP Earnings Results

    Adjusted operating income for 2017 was $363.5 million, 12% higher than 2016 adjusted operating income of $324.6 million. Adjusted operating margin increased 70 basis points to 20.2% in 2017, compared with 19.5% in 2016.

    Adjusted net income in 2017 was $262.6 million, or $1.88 per diluted share, which increased 12% over 2016 adjusted net income of $233.8 million, or $1.69 per diluted share.

    Segment Results

    Full year 2017 revenue from the Surveillance segment was $545.8 million, an increase of 2% over last year. The Instruments segment contributed $357.8 million of revenue during 2017, up 6% over 2016. The Security segment recorded revenue of $231.5 million in 2017, down 4% from the prior year. FLIR’s OEM & Emerging Markets segment had $347.2 million of revenue, an increase of 42% over the prior year, which was driven by the addition of the Integrated Imaging Solutions line of business acquired late in the fourth quarter of 2016. Revenue from the Maritime segment was $189.7 million in 2017, which was 2% higher than the prior year. The Detection segment contributed $128.5 million of revenue, an increase of 4% over the prior year.

    FLIR's backlog of firm orders for delivery within the next twelve months was approximately $652 million as of December 31, 2017, an increase of $60 million, or 10%, over the prior year.

    Revenue and Earnings Outlook for 2018

    FLIR estimates revenue in 2018 to be in the range of $1.73 billion to $1.76 billion and adjusted earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $2.05 to $2.10. This represents 4% to 6% organic revenue growth and 9% to 12% growth in adjusted earnings per diluted share over 2017, excluding the results of the divested portion of the Security segment which was announced and closed on February 6, 2018, which contributed $140 million of revenue and was break-even in operating profit in 2017. Adjusted earnings per share assumes an effective tax rate of 21.5% and a diluted share count of approximately 142 million shares.

    Dividend Declaration

    FLIR’s Board of Directors has approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.16 per share on FLIR common stock, an increase of 7% over the previous quarterly dividend of $0.15 per share. The Board of Directors has declared the dividend payable on March 9, 2018, to shareholders of record as of close of business on February 23, 2018.

    Definitions and Financial Measures

    Organic revenue growth is defined as total revenue growth less the sales of companies acquired and divested in the past twelve months. Operating margin is defined as operating income as a percentage of revenue. Management uses operating income and operating margin as key measures to assess the performance of the Company as a whole, as well as the related measures at the segment level.

    Non-GAAP Financial Measures: In addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this earnings release makes reference to non-GAAP measures. With respect to the outlook for the full year 2018, certain items that affect GAAP net earnings per diluted share are out of the Company’s control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted. Consequently, the Company is unable to provide a reasonable estimate of GAAP net earnings per diluted share or a corresponding reconciliation to GAAP net earnings per diluted share for the full year. Additional information regarding the reasons the Company uses non-GAAP measures, a reconciliation of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures, and other information relating to these measures are included below, following the GAAP financial information.

    Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

    We report our financial results in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). As a supplement to our GAAP financial results, this earnings announcement contains some or all of the following non-GAAP financial measures: (i) adjusted gross profit, (ii) adjusted gross margin (defined as adjusted gross profit divided by revenue), (iii) adjusted operating income, (iv) adjusted operating margin (defined as adjusted operating income divided by revenue), (v) adjusted net earnings/income, and (vi) adjusted earnings per diluted share (EPS). These non-GAAP measures of financial performance are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and computational methods may differ from those used by other companies. Additionally, these non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for any other performance measure determined in accordance with GAAP and the Company cautions investors and potential investors to consider these measures in addition to, not as a substitute for, its consolidated financial results as presented in accordance with GAAP. Each of the non-GAAP measures is adjusted from GAAP results and are outlined in the "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation" tables included within this earnings release.

    In calculating non-GAAP financial measures, we exclude certain items (including gains and losses) to facilitate a review of the comparability of our core operating performance on a period-to-period basis. The excluded items represent amortization of acquired intangible assets, purchase accounting adjustments, restructuring charges, acquisition related expenses, loss on net assets held for sale, executive transition costs, discrete tax items, and other items we do not consider to be directly related to our core operating performance. We use non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate the core operating performance of our business, for comparison with forecasts and strategic plans, for calculating return on investment, and as a factor for determining compensation for certain employees. Accordingly, supplementing GAAP financial results with these non-GAAP financial measures enables the comparison of our ongoing operating results in a manner consistent with the metrics reviewed by management. We believe that these non-GAAP measures, when read in conjunction with our GAAP financials, provide useful information to investors by facilitating:

    • the comparability of our ongoing operating results over the periods presented;
    • the ability to identify trends in our underlying business; and
    • the comparison of our operating results against analyst financial models and operating results of other public companies that supplement their GAAP results with non-GAAP financial measures.

    The following are explanations of each type of adjustment that we incorporate into non-GAAP financial measures:

    • Amortization of acquired intangible assets. GAAP accounting requires that intangible assets are recorded at fair value as of the date of acquisition and amortized over their estimated useful lives. The timing and magnitude of our acquisition transactions and maturities of the businesses acquired will cause our operating results to vary from period to period, making comparison to past performance difficult for investors.

    • Purchase accounting adjustments. Included in our GAAP financial measures are purchase accounting adjustments, required by GAAP to adjust inventory balances to fair value at the time of acquisition. These non-cash charges are not reflective of our ongoing operations and can vary significantly in any given period driven by variability in our acquisition activity.

    • Acquisition related expenses. Included in our GAAP financial measures are acquisition related expenses, consisting of external expenses resulting directly from acquisition related activities, including due diligence, legal, valuation, tax and audit services. The timing and nature of our acquisition activity can vary significantly from period to period impacting comparability of operating results from one period to another. These transaction-specific costs can vary significantly in amount and timing and are not indicative of our core operating performance.

    • Restructuring charges. Included in our GAAP financial measures are restructuring charges which are primarily for employee compensation resulting from reductions in employee headcount and facilities exit and lease termination costs in connection with Company reorganization and restructuring activities. We believe that excluding these costs provides greater visibility to the underlying performance of our business operations, facilitates comparison of our results with other periods, and facilitates comparison with the results of other companies in our industry.

    • Loss on net assets held for sale. We recognized a loss in the fourth quarter of 2017 as a result of our planned divestiture of the retail and SMB portion of the Security segment. We have excluded this loss for purposes of calculating certain non-GAAP measures. This adjustment facilitates an alternative evaluation of our current operating performance and comparisons to past operating results consistent with the metrics reviewed by management.

    • Executive transition costs. Executive transition costs include costs associated with separation agreements of the Company’s former CEO and COO, professional services expenses associated with the transition of the former CEO and CFO including recruitment fees, legal services and other related costs, as well as sign-on cash bonus payments to the current CEO and CFO, partially offset by benefits associated with stock compensation reversals for share-based awards forfeited upon the departures of the former CEO, COO and CFO.

    • Other. Other charges include product remediation charges associated with certain SkyWatch™ surveillance towers, gains or losses on cost-basis investments, and a loss on extinguishment of debt.

    • Estimated tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments. This amount adjusts the provision for income taxes to reflect the effect of the previously listed non-GAAP adjustments on non-GAAP net income. We estimate the tax effect of the adjustment items by applying the Company's overall estimated effective tax rate, excluding significant discrete items, to the pretax amount.

    • Discrete tax items, netIncluded in our GAAP financial measures are income tax expenses and benefits related to discrete events or transactions that are not representative of the Company's estimated tax rate related to ongoing operations. These discrete tax items can vary significantly from period to period impacting the comparability of our earnings from one period to another. Discrete tax items include charges related to the enactment of new tax legislation, charges and reversals of provisions associated with certain unrecognized tax benefits, benefits associated with the reversal of previously recorded valuation allowances against certain deferred tax assets, and other discrete items not included in the annual effective tax rate associated with our ongoing operations.
