Emerson Process Management Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

Emerson Process Management sales grew 19%, as global energy investments and backlog conversion related to the Thailand flooding generated robust growth. Underlying sales increased 23% and currency translation deducted 4%, with the U.S. up 29%, Asia up 25%, and Europe up 14%. Project activity in oil and gas, chemical, and power end markets continued at a brisk pace across all product lines. Segment margin of 23.1% increased 270 basis points from the prior year quarter, primarily driven by volume leverage and cost reduction benefits. Recovery of sales delayed by the Thailand flooding progressed as expected, contributing to strong volume leverage. Underlying orders, which exclude currency translation, grew 17% in the quarter, resulting in backlog remaining at a high level, and supporting a favorable outlook in Emerson Process Management for the next several quarters.
