Foster Wheeler Reports Results for Full Year and Fourth Quarter of 2010

23/02/2011


  • Robust level of quarterly scope backlog and new orders in both business groups
  • Q4 2010 scope backlog and new orders in Global Power Group nearly double Q4 2009
  • Q4 2010 cash position of more than $1 billion
  • Summary report on strategic renewal initiative

ZUG, Switzerland, Feb 24, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Foster Wheeler AG (Nasdaq: FWLT) today reported net income for the fourth quarter of 2010 of $32.8 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, compared with $65.1 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2009. Net income in both quarterly periods was impacted by items as detailed in the attached table. Excluding such items from both quarterly periods, net income in the fourth quarter of 2010 was $38.3 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, compared with $86.2 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter.

Fourth-quarter 2010 consolidated EBITDA (earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization) was $71.0 million, compared with $108.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. Consolidated EBITDA in both quarterly periods was also impacted by items as detailed in the attached table. Excluding such items from both quarterly periods, consolidated EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2010 was $76.5 million, compared with $129.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2009.

For the full year 2010, net income was $215.4 million, or $1.70 per diluted share, compared with $350.2 million, or $2.75 per diluted share, in 2009. Consolidated EBITDA for 2010 was $359.7 million, compared with $503.8 million in 2009. The full-year net income and consolidated EBITDA for 2010 and 2009 included items as detailed in the attached table.

The following tables present quarterly and average quarterly data, both as reported and as adjusted. The company believes that quarterly averages provide meaningful comparative relevance for certain key metrics in light of the significant quarter-to-quarter variability that is inherent in the company's financial results.

(in millions) Q4 2010 Qtrly Avg. 2010 Q4 2009 Qtrly Avg. 2009
Net income $33 $54 $65 $87
Net income, as adjusted $38 $55 $86 $94
Consolidated EBITDA $71 $90 $108 $126
Consolidated EBITDA, as adjusted $77 $91 $129 $133

In commenting on the company's results for the fourth quarter of 2010, Foster Wheeler's Interim Chief Executive Officer, Umberto della Sala, said, "Both of the company's business groups continued to deliver excellent operating and commercial performance. However, the company's adjusted net income was below the average quarter of 2009 due in part to lower volumes and margins in the Global Engineering and Construction Group and a higher effective tax rate." The higher effective tax rate for the quarter resulted, to some extent, from certain expenses which are not tax-effected.

"We ended 2010 on a very strong note, with robust levels of scope backlog and fourth-quarter scope new orders in both business groups," said Mr. della Sala. "Specifically, our Global Power Group reported fourth-quarter scope backlog and scope new orders that were nearly double the levels of the same period of 2009. The backlog figure for our E&C Group is especially impressive, considering the challenging market conditions experienced in 2010 and the fact that the company removed from backlog $123 million of scope value and a material number of man-hours in the fourth quarter of 2010 in connection with a contract where Foster Wheeler and the client agreed to change the execution strategy for the project."

Global Engineering and Construction (E&C) Group

(in millions) Q4 2010 Qtrly Avg. 2010 Q4 2009 Qtrly Avg. 2009
New orders booked (FW Scope) $562 $485 $395 $494
Operating revenues (FW Scope) $419 $421 $489 $478
Segment EBITDA $42 $74 $95 $105
EBITDA Margin (FW Scope) 9.9% 17.6% 19.4% 22.0%

  • EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2010 was lower than the average quarter of 2009 due primarily to lower realized margins and lower volumes of work executed and a $13.2 million (both before and after-tax) impairment charge on partially owned Italian power projects.
  • New orders booked in Foster Wheeler scope were above the average quarter of 2009 due in part to receipt of a large contract for front-end engineering design of two refineries in Brazil.
  • Scope operating revenues were below the average quarter of 2009, primarily due to a lower volume of work executed.

Global Power Group (GPG)

(in millions) Q4 2010 Qtrly Avg. 2010 Q4 2009 Qtrly Avg. 2009
New orders booked (FW Scope) $420 $298 $214 $150
Operating revenues (FW Scope) $234 $178 $216 $251
Segment EBITDA $67 $41 $52 $49
EBITDA Margin (FW Scope) 28.6% 23.0% 24.1% 19.3%

  • EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2010 was well above the average quarter of 2009, aided by the favorable impact of a $22 million debt payment by a third party on a company-owned power plant in the U.S.
  • Scope new orders in the fourth quarter of 2010 were sharply above the average quarter of 2009 due in part to receipt of orders for boilers in Asia and Eastern Europe.
  • Scope operating revenues in the fourth quarter of 2010 were below the average quarter of 2009 but reached their highest level since the second quarter of 2009, as demand continued to recover.

In commenting on the 2011 outlook for the company's two business groups, Mr. della Sala said, "As we have previously indicated, we expect Foster Wheeler's consolidated financial results in 2011 to reflect the lagging impact of the weak market conditions we experienced in 2009 and 2010, although we are clearly seeing encouraging signs of market recovery in each of our business groups. We see 2011 as a transition year that will likely reflect increased scope revenues in both the Global E&C Group and the Global Power Group as the year progresses, although the magnitude of the increase will be different in the two business groups and will depend to some extent on the timing of client decisions."

Mr. della Sala continued, "In our Global E&C Group, scope revenue in 2011 is likely to be above the level of 2010. We expect the full-year 2011 EBITDA margin on scope revenue to be in the range of 13-15%, which would be down from the reported margin of 2010 due largely to competitive pressure. We were encouraged to see a sharp increase in our E&C bidding activity during the fourth quarter for study and FEED prospects, which can be a precursor to increased client spending over the next several years."

Mr. della Sala added, "In our Global Power Group, we expect scope revenue to be up sharply in 2011 versus 2010, reflecting the increased volume of boiler orders that we have won over the past 12 to 18 months. We expect the EBITDA margin on scope revenue in 2011 to be in the range of 14%-16%."

Strategic Renewal Initiative

Mr. della Sala also commented on the company's strategic renewal initiative, which was initiated in June 2010. "We have recently completed the work on our strategic renewal initiative, which was focused primarily on our Global E&C Group. As a result of this work, we have identified four broad areas of targeted activity outlined below."

  • Further optimizing the performance of the company's core E&C business with specific focus on a continued strengthening of our global capability to execute EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) contracts;
  • Geographical expansion of E&C operations to respond to increasing demand for localization of the company's services and to broaden the way in which we address markets in high-growth economies; the company is especially well positioned to do this because its business model is already based on global decentralization;
  • Expansion into new business lines that offer synergies with the company's core E&C business;
  • Further leveraging and expanding the company's technology portfolio.

Share Repurchase Program

On September 12, 2008, the company announced that its board of directors had authorized a $750 million share repurchase program. As of the end of the third quarter of 2010, the company had approximately $165 million remaining under that authorization. In November 2010, the company's board of directors proposed an increase of $335 million to our share repurchase program and the designation of repurchased shares for cancellation, which was approved by shareholders at an extraordinary general meeting today. When combined with the remaining authorization of $165 million, the November action as approved by shareholders gave the company as of today a total authorization of approximately $500 million available for share repurchase.

The company did not repurchase any shares in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Net Income Attributable to Foster Wheeler AG

All references to net income in this news release indicate net income attributable to Foster Wheeler AG.

Calculation of EBITDA

EBITDA is a supplemental financial measure not defined in generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. The company defines EBITDA as net income attributable to Foster Wheeler AG before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. The company has presented EBITDA because it believes it is an important supplemental measure of operating performance. Certain covenants under our U.S. senior secured credit agreement use an adjusted form of EBITDA such that in the covenant calculations the EBITDA as presented herein is adjusted for certain unusual and infrequent items specifically excluded in the terms of our U.S. senior secured credit agreement. The company believes that the line item on its consolidated statement of operations entitled "net income attributable to Foster Wheeler AG" is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to EBITDA. Since EBITDA is not a measure of performance calculated in accordance with GAAP, it should not be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for, net income attributable to Foster Wheeler AG as an indicator of operating performance or any other GAAP financial measure.

EBITDA, as calculated by the company, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. In addition, this measure does not necessarily represent funds available for discretionary use, and is not necessarily a measure of the company's ability to fund its cash needs. As EBITDA excludes certain financial information that is included in net income attributable to Foster Wheeler AG, users of this financial information should consider the type of events and transactions that are excluded.

The company's non-GAAP performance measure, EBITDA, has certain material limitations as follows:

  • It does not include interest expense. Because the company has borrowed money to finance some of its operations, interest is a necessary and ongoing part of its costs and has assisted the company in generating revenue. Therefore, any measure that excludes interest expense has material limitations;
  • It does not include taxes. Because the payment of taxes is a necessary and ongoing part of the company's operations, any measure that excludes taxes has material limitations; and
  • It does not include depreciation and amortization. Because the company must utilize property, plant and equipment and intangible assets in order to generate revenues in its operations, depreciation and amortization are necessary and ongoing costs of its operations. Therefore, any measure that excludes depreciation and amortization has material limitations.

Calculation of EBITDA Margin

Segment EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing business group operating revenues in Foster Wheeler Scope into business group EBITDA.

Foster Wheeler Scope

Foster Wheeler Scope represents that portion of unfilled orders, new orders booked and operating revenues on which profit can be earned. Foster Wheeler Scope excludes revenues relating to third-party costs incurred by the company as agent or principal on a reimbursable basis.

Safe Harbor Statement

Foster Wheeler AG news releases may contain forward-looking statements that are based on management's assumptions, expectations and projections about the Company and the various industries within which the Company operates. These include statements regarding the Company's expectations about revenues (including as expressed by its backlog), its liquidity, the outcome of litigation and legal proceedings and recoveries from customers for claims and the costs of current and future asbestos claims and the amount and timing of related insurance recoveries. Such forward-looking statements by their nature involve a degree of risk and uncertainty. The Company cautions that a variety of factors, including but not limited to the factors described in the Company's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, which was filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the following, could cause the Company's business conditions and results to differ materially from what is contained in forward-looking statements: benefits, effects or results of the Company's redomestication or the relocation of our principal executive offices to Geneva, Switzerland; the search for a permanent Chief Executive Officer; the benefits, effects or results of our strategic renewal initiative; further deterioration in global economic conditions, changes in investment by the oil and gas, oil refining, chemical/petrochemical and power generation industries, changes in the financial condition of its customers, changes in regulatory environments, changes in project design or schedules, contract cancellations, changes in estimates made by the Company of costs to complete projects, changes in trade, monetary and fiscal policies worldwide, compliance with laws and regulations relating to its global operations, currency fluctuations, war and/or terrorist attacks on facilities either owned by the Company or where equipment or services are or may be provided by the Company, interruptions to shipping lanes or other methods of transit, outcomes of pending and future litigation, including litigation regarding the Company's liability for damages and insurance coverage for asbestos exposure, protection and validity of its patents and other intellectual property rights, increasing global competition, compliance with its debt covenants, recoverability of claims against its customers and others by the Company and claims by third parties against the Company, and changes in estimates used in its critical accounting policies. Other factors and assumptions not identified above were also involved in the formation of these forward-looking statements and the failure of such other assumptions to be realized, as well as other factors, may also cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. Most of these factors are difficult to predict accurately and are generally beyond the Company's control. You should consider the areas of risk described above in connection with any forward-looking statements that may be made by the Company. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. You are advised, however, to consult any additional disclosures the Company makes in proxy statements, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, annual reports on Form 10-K and current reports on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission
