Kennametal Inc. today reported fourth quarter EPS of $4.11, including special items of $2.86 per share. Fourth quarter adjusted EPS were $1.25 compared with prior year EPS of $0.98, an increase of 28 percent.
Fiscal 2006 reported EPS were $6.48, including special items of $2.53, compared with prior year reported EPS of $3.13, including special charges of $0.12 per share, an increase of 107 percent. Fiscal 2006 adjusted EPS were $3.95 compared to prior year adjusted EPS of $3.25, an increase of 22 percent.
Fiscal 2006 fourth quarter performance reflects continuing operational excellence as well as the impact of previously announced divestitures. These transactions are consistent with the company's strategy of exiting non-core businesses. Therefore, fourth quarter results included charges associated with the sale of UK-based high speed steel business (Presto), the sale of Kemmer Praezision electronics business (Electronics) and the previously announced sale of South Deerfield Industrial's consumer retail product line (CPG). These dispositions are expected to improve future overall EBIT margins.
In addition, fourth quarter results included a gain, net of transaction related costs, from the divestiture of J&L Industrial Supply (J&L). The divestiture of J&L is in line with Kennametal's strategy to focus on its core manufacturing businesses. This transaction completes the company's planned exit from owned distribution and Kennametal will continue building new distributor relationships while growing existing ones.
As previously disclosed, the company evaluated options for cash repatriation and the corresponding tax impact under the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004 (AJCA). The Act provides for a special one-time tax deduction on foreign earnings that are repatriated to the United States. The company repatriated $89 million, which resulted in an $11 million tax cost which was recorded during fourth quarter of fiscal 2006.
President and Chief Executive Officer Carlos M. Cardoso said, "We are very pleased with the results for fourth quarter and fiscal year 2006, which reflect all that we have accomplished. Through the Kennametal Value Business System (KVBS), our team is successfully executing on our strategy. The fourth quarter performance represents the 10th consecutive quarter of year over year growth. Kennametal's strong sales, EPS and return on invested capital validate our market leadership position as well the continuing global opportunity for our company. We are excited to be essentially done with the divestiture of non-core businesses. We now have created a stronger foundation, which positions our company for long-term growth and profitability. By continually enhancing our portfolio to ensure the appropriate mix of businesses, Kennametal is focused on serving customers' needs through innovative technology and solutions."
Reconciliation of all non-GAAP financial measures are set forth in the attached tables.

Metalworking Solutions & Services Group (MSSG) growth continues to outpace the growth in its major markets, demonstrating the effects of further market penetration through the company's channel saturation and branding strategy, as well as price realization. North American sales growth was leveraged with the divestiture of J&L that spurred opportunities with new distributors. General engineering, distribution and energy market segments each exhibited strong year over year growth. The divestiture of Presto and the previously announced divestiture of CPG support the company's long-term strategy of continued focus on its core businesses.
In the June quarter, MSSG adjusted sales were up 6 percent on volume and price. North American cemented carbide and high-speed steel grew 10 percent and 8 percent, respectively. Europe sales were increased 4 percent. Rest of the world grew 3 percent.
MSSG operating income was up 18 percent on reported sales growth of 6 percent and the operating margin of 16 percent was up 200 basis points over the same period last year due to ongoing cost containment and price realization.
Advanced Materials Solutions Group (AMSG) delivered significant top line growth in the current quarter. The underlying markets in mining and energy remain strong for Kennametal. The overall AMSG segment continues to report considerable growth. Overall market conditions, price realization and market share penetration are primary factors contributing to favorable results.
In the June quarter, AMSG adjusted sales grew 14 percent on volume and price. Energy product sales were up 37 percent, Conforma Clad sales increased 24 percent, engineered products grew 12 percent and mining and construction product sales increased 9 percent.
AMSG operating income grew 11 percent versus last year, on 18 percent reported sales growth. Operating margin of 18 percent was down 100 basis points over the same period last year due primarily to the impact of raw material price increases period over period, particularly tungsten.
Worldwide market conditions support the company's expectations of continued top line growth in fiscal year 2007. Global economic indicators show that North America is expected to remain strong, modest growth is expected in Europe, and emerging markets are forecasted to be robust. While there remain some uncertainties and risks related to the macro-economic environment, fundamental drivers for global demand appear to be stable.
Cardoso said, "We are optimistic about the outlook for our end markets. The global manufacturing forecast is in line with our belief that the industrial sector will continue to show strength. We will continue to balance and diversify our end markets and world geographic mix. We again expect to outperform the market by effectively delivering volume growth, gaining market share and realizing price through innovative customer solutions that provide value and performance."
Kennametal expects organic revenue growth in the 7 to 10 percent range for fiscal year 2007, continuing the trend of consistently outpacing worldwide industrial production rates by two to three times. The company anticipates the majority of its end markets to continue operating at high levels throughout the year, with moderating growth rates for some sectors.
The expectation of ongoing expansion around the globe supports Kennametal's projection of 6 to 9 percent organic sales growth in the first quarter of fiscal 2007, relative to very strong performance from the prior year quarter.
Reported EPS are expected to be in the $4.20 to $4.40 range for fiscal year 2007, despite some dilution from recent divestitures of non-core businesses, reflecting confidence in the company's ability to maintain its strong performance. This forecasted range also includes costs related to the company's ongoing SG&A initiatives that will result in increased profitability for the long term. The fiscal year 2007 guidance midpoint represents a 9 percent year over year growth. On a comparable basis, fiscal year 2007 guidance midpoint represents approximately 25 percent growth, a substantial increase over prior year. Approximately 65 percent of the forecasted EPS will be realized in the second half of fiscal year 2007, consistent with historical seasonal patterns. First quarter 2007 EPS are expected to be $0.60 to $0.70.
Improvements in operating margins are expected to continue and return on invested capital is solidly on track for the projected 11 to 12 percent range for fiscal year 2007.
Kennametal anticipates net cash flow provided by operating activities of approximately $275 million to $285 million for fiscal 2007. Based on anticipated capital expenditures of $90 million, Kennametal expects to generate between $185 million to $195 million of free operating cash flow for fiscal 2007. However, approximately $100 million to $110 million will be used for tax payments, due to recent divestitures and cash repatriation related to the AJCA.
Kennametal also announced that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.19 per share. The dividend is payable August 23, 2006 to shareowners of record as of the close of business on August 8, 2006.
Kennametal advises shareowners to note monthly order trends, for which the company makes a disclosure ten business days after the conclusion of each month. This information is available on the Investor Relations section of Kennametal's corporate web site at www.kennametal.com.

In addition to reported results under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP), the following financial highlight tables also include, where appropriate, a reconciliation of gross profit, operating expense, operating income, income from continuing operations, net income and diluted earnings per share, in each case excluding special items, adjusted free operating cash flow, adjusted segment sales, and adjusted return on invested capital (which are non-GAAP financial measures), to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Management believes that the investor should have available the same information that management uses to assess operating performance, determine compensation, and assess the capital structure of the Company. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most comparable GAAP measures. Non-GAAP financial measures utilized by the Company may not be comparable to non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.
