OPERATIONS REVIEW

"Second quarter results benefited from strong markets, higher price realization, our focus on cash flow, and the integration of Aclara,” said David G. Nord, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We delivered 5% organic sales growth in the quarter, with continued growth across all major market segments. Oil and Gas, as well as both light and heavy Industrial, were notably strong. The Electrical T&D market was also a standout, driven by transmission projects and system hardening initiatives. Our Power segment also benefited from build-outs in the outside plant telecommunications market. Lighting markets were mixed, with strength in residential and flat unit volumes and continued price pressure in C&I.
"As anticipated, operating margins were impacted by higher material costs in the quarter, however, price realization increased meaningfully from earlier in the year. Importantly, the net impact of price/material cost headwind was lower in the second quarter compared to the first quarter, a trend that we expect will continue to improve through 2018. Electrical operating margins overcame this headwind and expanded two points year-over-year in the quarter, supported by productivity in excess of cost increases, restructuring tailwinds, and incremental volume contribution.” Mr. Nord continued, “Operating margins at Power declined year-over-year, primarily from the impact of the Aclara acquisition. Excluding Aclara, operating margins at Power declined approximately two points, primarily from material cost increases in excess of price.
“Another highlight of the quarter was that the company-wide focus on cash flow, specifically working capital, yielded positive results. Our cash performance in the first six months of 2018 was in line with historical trends, despite headwinds in the first quarter related to the Aclara transaction and taxes on our planned cash repatriation . Looking ahead, we expect our strong momentum to continue as we remain committed and on track to delivering free cash flow greater than net income in 2018.
“Our acquisition strategy continues to contribute meaningfully to our results and our ability to create value for our customers. Our acquisition of Aclara continues to perform well. Sales are tracking better than initial expectations, the markets remain robust and the integration process is on track. We believe that the combination of Hubbell and Aclara is a unique opportunity to accelerate the culture of innovation across both companies to better serve complementary customer bases and drive shareholder value.”

SEGMENT REVIEW
The comments and year-over-year comparisons in this segment review are based on second quarter results in 2018 and 2017.
Electrical segment net sales in the second quarter of 2018 increased 5% to $689 million compared to $656 million reported in the second quarter of 2017. Organic sales grew 5% in the quarter while foreign currency added less than 1%. Operating income was $91 million, or 13.3% of net sales, compared to $74 million, or 11.3% of net sales, in the same period of 2017. The increases in operating income and operating margin were primarily due to productivity in excess of cost increases and higher volume, partially offset by increases in material costs.
Power segment net sales in the second quarter of 2018 increased 64% to $478 million compared to $292 million reported in the second quarter of 2017. Acquisitions added 59% to net sales in the quarter, while organic sales grew 5%. Operating income was $66 million, or 13.7% of net sales, compared to $60 million, or 20.7% of net sales, in the same period of 2017 (1). Excluding Aclara acquisition-related and transaction costs (which affected only the 2018 period), operating income was $76 million, or 15.9% of net sales, in the second quarter of 2018 (1). Changes in operating income and operating margin were primarily due to the impacts of acquisitions and increases in material costs.

SUMMARY & OUTLOOK

For the full year 2018, Hubbell now anticipates sales growth of 18% - 20% which represents a tightening of the original sales expectation range toward the high end. This range reflects 3% - 4% growth in end markets and approximately 15% growth from acquisitions completed to date, primarily Aclara. The end market outlook includes growth in the residential market of 5% - 6%, up from 2% - 4% previously. Other end market expectations have been raised to the higher end of our prior expectations: 6% - 7% growth for oil and gas markets, 3% - 4% growth for Electrical T&D and industrial markets, and 2% - 3% growth for non-residential markets.
The Company now expects 2018 reported diluted earnings per share in the range of $6.25 - $6.55, compared to prior expectations of $6.10 - $6.50, and adjusted diluted earnings per share (“adjusted EPS”) in the range of $7.05 - $7.35 compared to prior expectations of $6.95 - $7.35 (1). Adjusted EPS excludes approximately $0.80 of acquisition-related and transaction costs of the Aclara acquisition. The Company believes adjusted EPS is an insightful measure of underlying financial performance and cash flow generation in light of the effects of the Aclara acquisition. These ranges include approximately $0.50 of legacy intangible asset amortization.
These ranges also now include the impact of Section 301 Tariff Lists 1 and 2, as currently interpreted, and related remediation actions.
The Company continues to expect free cash flow for the year to exceed net income.
“Given the strength of our first half results, we are raising and tightening our earnings expectations for 2018.” Mr. Nord added, “We have consistently demonstrated our ability to mitigate headwinds through strong execution of our business strategy and believe that we are well positioned with quality brands, superior service, and long-standing customer relationships to capitalize on market growth. I am confident that Hubbell is positioned to continue delivering long-term, sustainable shareholder returns.”

Supplementary Earnings Information

(in millions)

In March 2017, the FASB issued an Accounting Standards Update (ASU 2017-07) relating to the presentation of net periodic pension costs and net periodic post-retirement benefit cost. The new guidance requires the service component of net periodic pension and post-retirement benefit costs to be reported in the same income statement line item as other employee compensation costs, and the other components to be reported outside of operating income. The Company adopted the requirements of the new standard in the first quarter of 2018 and applied the guidance on a retrospective basis, as required by the standard. The impact to our fiscal quarters and year-ended 2017 is shown in the table below (in millions):

Footnotes

(1) References to "adjusted" operating measures exclude the impact of certain costs. Management believes these adjusted operating measures provide useful information regarding our underlying performance from period to period and an understanding of our results of operations without regard to items we do not consider a component of our core operating performance. Adjusted operating measures include adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margins, adjusted net income, adjusted net income available to common shareholders, adjusted earnings per diluted share, and adjusted EBITDA, which exclude, where applicable:

Aclara acquisition-related and transaction costs, which includes the amortization of identified intangible assets and inventory step-up amortization expense and professional services and other fees that were incurred in connection with the acquisition of Aclara,
The loss on early extinguishment of long-term debt recognized in the third quarter of 2017 from the redemption of all of our $300 million of long-term notes that were scheduled to mature in 2018,
Income tax effects associated with U.S. Tax Reform,
Adjusted EBITDA also excludes the Other income (expense), net caption and interest income.

Effective with results of operations reported in the first quarter of 2018, "adjusted" operating measures no longer exclude restructuring and related costs, as these costs and the related savings are expected to return to a more consistent annual run-rate in 2018, and therefore no longer affect the comparability of our underlying performance from period to period. The previously reported 2017 adjusted operating measures have been restated to reflect the change in definition of the adjusted measure.

Each of these adjusted operating measures are non-GAAP measures. Management uses the adjusted measures when assessing the performance of the business. Reconciliations of each of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure can be found in the tables within this press release.

(2) Net debt (defined as total debt less cash and investments) to total capital is a non-GAAP measure that we believe is a useful measure for evaluating the Company's financial leverage and the ability to meet its funding needs.

(3) Free cash flow is a non-GAAP measure that we believe provides useful information regarding the Company's ability to generate cash without reliance on external financing. In addition, management uses free cash flow to evaluate the resources available for investments in the business, strategic acquisitions and further strengthening the balance sheet.
