  • Second Quarter ResultsOlivier Filliol, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Market conditions remain challenging, particularly in China.  However, with the continued strong execution in our various margin improvement and cost control initiatives, we generated good growth in EPS."

    Cost Control MeasuresAs part of the cost control measures announced in the second quarter of 2012, the Company recorded pre-tax restructuring charges of $3.2 million in the quarter and $8.2 million year to date. 

    Increase to Share Repurchase ProgramThe Company announced that the Board of Directors has authorized a $750 million increase to the share repurchase program.  The Company currently has a $2.25 billion stock repurchase program of which $1.96 billion has been utilized.  Any amount remaining under the existing program will be incorporated into the new authorization.  Filliol commented, "Our share repurchase plan has provided strong returns for our shareholders over many years and we want to continue the program.  We are confident in our future growth prospects and our balance sheet and cash flow generation remain very strong."  The Company expects the new authorization will be utilized over the next several years.  The Company added that the repurchases will be made through open market transactions, and the amount and timing will depend on business and market conditions, stock price, trading restrictions, the level of acquisition activity and other factors.Outlook  The Company updated its outlook for 2013 and noted that uncertainty in demand exists in most of its markets, which makes forecasting difficult.  Based on today's assessment, management anticipates that local currency sales growth in 2013 will be in the range of 1% to 2%.  This sales growth will result in Adjusted EPS in the range of $10.45 to $10.60, an increase of 8% to 10%.  This compares to previous guidance of Adjusted EPS in the range of $10.40 to $10.60.The Company stated that based on its assessment of market conditions today, management anticipates that local currency sales growth for the third quarter of 2013 will be in the range of 1% to 3% and Adjusted EPS will be in the range of $2.55 to $2.60, an increase of 6% to 8%.

    Adjusted EPS excludes purchased intangible amortization, discrete tax items, restructuring charges and other one-time items.  While the Company has provided an outlook for Adjusted EPS, it has not provided an outlook for EPS as it would require an estimate of non-recurring items, which are not yet known.Conclusion Filliol concluded, "There is uncertainty in our markets and although we expect market conditions to improve, the timing of that recovery will likely be different by geographic region.  Our businesses in the Americas are generally performing well while in Europe market conditions are stable but below historic levels.  In Asia, and particularly in China, there is more uncertainty and we will monitor this closely.  With the adjustments that we made to our cost structure last year, we believe we are well positioned to focus on growth opportunities that exist, despite the challenging environment.  Execution of our strategic initiatives will continue to be a key factor in gaining share and driving further earnings growth."Other MattersThe Company will host a conference call to discuss its quarterly results today (Thursday, July 25) at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time.  To hear a live webcast or replay of the call, visit the investor relations page on the Company's website at www.mt.com/investors.  The presentation referenced in the conference call will be located on the website prior to the call.
