SPX FLOW, INC. (NYSE:FLOW) Files An 8-K Results of Operations and Financial Condition
Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

Story continues below

On August2, 2017, SPX FLOW, Inc. (the “Company”) issued the press release attached as Exhibit99.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

The press release incorporated by reference into this Item 2.02 contains disclosure regarding organic revenue decline, defined as net revenue decline excluding the effects of foreign currency fluctuations. The Company’s management believes that this metric is a useful financial measure for investors in evaluating its operating performance because excluding the effect of currency fluctuations, when read in conjunction with the Company’s revenues, presents a useful tool to evaluate the Company’s ongoing operations and provides investors with a tool they can use to evaluate the Company’s management of assets held from period to period. In addition, organic revenue growth (decline) is one of the factors the Company’s management uses in internal evaluations of the overall performance of its business.

The press release also contains disclosure regarding net debt, defined as total debt net of (1) debt balances under our purchase card program and (2) cash and equivalents in excess of $50.0. Net debt is presented in a manner consistent with the definition of certain related defined terms within our senior credit facilities and utilized by the Company in the calculation of certain financial covenant ratios. The Company views this measure, when read in conjunction with its comparable GAAP amount, as giving investors a useful tool to assess the financial health and leverage of the Company. Additionally, the Company’s management uses this metric as a measure of the Company’s leverage.

The Company is executing a global multi-year plan to transition our enterprise into an operating company ("global realignment program"), to which it expects to incur costs of approximately $30 to $40 million in 2017 toward restructuring actions ("special charges"). To aid investors who seek comparability period-to-period, the Company, in the press release incorporated by reference into this Item 2.02, adjusted certain metrics to exclude these charges and certain other charges (benefits). These metrics include disclosure of:

(i)

adjusted operating income, which is defined as operating income (loss) excluding impairment of goodwill and intangible assets and special charges;

(ii)

adjusted net income, which is defined as net income (loss) attributable to SPX FLOW, Inc. excluding impairment of goodwill and intangible assets, net of tax, special charges, net of tax, and net discrete tax items and other;

(iii)

EBITDA, which is defined as net income (loss) attributable to SPX FLOW, Inc. excluding income tax provision (benefit), interest expense and depreciation and amortization;

(iv)

adjusted EBITDA, which is defined as EBITDA excluding special charges and impairment of goodwill and intangible assets, and

(v)

adjusted diluted earnings per share (“EPS”), which is defined as diluted earnings (loss) per share excluding the dilutive EPS effects of impairment of goodwill and intangible assets, net of tax, special charges, net of tax, and net discrete tax items and other.

The Company views each of the above measures, when read in conjunction with their comparable GAAP number or amount, as giving investors useful tools to assess the health and prospects of the Company. Additionally, the Company’s management uses these adjusted metrics as measures of the Company’s performance.

The press release also contains disclosure regarding free cash flow from (used in) operations, defined as net cash from (used in) operations adjusted to include capital expenditures. In addition, the press release contains disclosure regarding adjusted free cash flow from (used in) operations, defined as free cash flow from (used in) operations, adjusted to exclude cash spending on restructuring actions, capital expenditures related to expansion of a manufacturing facility, and pension payments to retirees, net of tax benefit. The Company’s management believes that free and adjusted free cash flow from (used in) operations are useful financial measures for investors in evaluating the cash flow performance of multi-industrial companies, since the measures provide insight into the cash flow available to fund such things as equity repurchases, dividends, mandatory and discretionary debt reduction and acquisitions or other strategic investments. In addition, although the use of free and adjusted free cash flow from (used in) operations is limited by the fact that these measures can exclude certain cash items within management’s discretion, free and adjusted free cash flow from (used in) operations are factors used by the Company’s management in internal evaluations of the overall performance of its business.

None of the non-GAAP measures described above is a measure of financial performance under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), and should not be considered a substitute for, and should be used in combination

with, the GAAP number or amount from which it is reconciled. Non-GAAP measures used by the Company may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Refer to the tables included in the press release for the components of each of the Company’s non-GAAP numbers or amounts referred to above, and for the reconciliations of these numbers or amounts from their respective comparable GAAP measures.

The information in this Report is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section. The information in this Report shall not be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
