April 29, 2016 at 7:36 AM EDT

BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 29, 2016-- CIRCOR International, Inc. (NYSE: CIR), a leading provider of valves and other highly engineered products for markets including oil & gas, power generation and aerospace & defense, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended April 3, 2016.

First-Quarter 2016 Highlights

  • Delivered Revenue of $151 million and Adjusted EPS of $0.52
  • Accelerated cost control and restructuring actions to improve bottom-line performance
  • Achieved Energy adjusted operating margin of 12.6%
  • Expanded Aerospace & Defense adjusted operating margin to 9.3%

“CIRCOR delivered solid first-quarter financial results, demonstrating ongoing progress on our margin expansion and simplification strategy,” said Scott Buckhout, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Despite significant headwinds in our Energy markets, we maintained strong margin performance and delivered year-over-year sales growth in our engineered valve and control valve businesses. Aerospace & Defense continued to improve its bottom line results, expanding margins 130 basis points over last year.”

“Going forward, we are focused on laying the foundation for long-term above market growth. We continue to improve our operations while we carefully invest in areas with the best long-term growth potential,” added Buckhout. “In addition, we are using the ongoing weakness in our Energy markets as an opportunity to further accelerate our cost reduction strategy. Our simplification and restructuring actions launched to date remain on track.”

“Finally we remain committed to creating shareholder value through growth, margin expansion, strong cash flow, and disciplined capital deployment,” concluded Buckhout.

Second-Quarter 2016 Guidance
For the second quarter of 2016, the Company will provide its guidance during the conference call later today.
