  1. Consolidated and Industrial segment revenues for Q2 2022 and Q2 2021 included $0.2 million and $3.1 million, respectively, relating to our Pipeline Engineering business.

  2. Adjusted operating income is a non-GAAP financial measure. Refer to "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for an explanation of our non-GAAP financial measures and to the reconciliations included in this press release. Adjusted operating income and Industrial segment operating income for Q2 2022 and Q2 2021 included $(1.1) million and $(1.8) million, respectively, relating to our Pipeline Engineering business.

  3. Adjusted operating margin is a non-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted operating margin for Q2 2022 and Q2 2021 included (492)% and (56)%, respectively, relating to our Pipeline Engineering business.

  4. Adjusted earnings per share (diluted) is a non-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted earnings per share and our segment results for Q2 2022 exclude net loss from non-cash acquisition-related intangible amortization and special and restructuring charges of $4.7 million, consisting of (i) $10.4 million for non-cash acquisition-related intangible amortization and depreciation expense; (ii) $5.0 million of special charges related to the amendment of the credit agreement; (iii) $5.0 million of costs due to the investigation into the accounting irregularities of the Pipeline Engineering business and incremental professional services incurred due to the restatement; (iv) $0.9 million of special charges related to the evaluation of strategic alternatives for the company; (v) net restructuring charges of $4.7 million comprised of $5.3 million of CTA loss offset by other adjustments of $0.6 million due to the deconsolidation of the Pipeline Engineering businesses; (vi) other special and restructuring charges net of $0.7 million; and (vii) a gain of $22.0 million on the sale of real estate located at Walden, New York and Tampa, Florida. Adjusted consolidated and segment results for Q2 2021 exclude net loss from discontinued operations of $0.9 million and net loss from non-cash acquisition-related intangible amortization, special and restructuring charges totaling $19.6 million ($21.9 million after tax). These charges include: (i) $11.8 million for non-cash acquisition-related intangible amortization and depreciation expense; (ii) $3.0 million of special charges related to the Heater & Control Valve divestiture; (iii) $3.8 million of other special and restructuring charges; and (iv) $1.0 million of restructuring related inventory charges.

  5. Adjusted free cash flow, a non-GAAP financial measure, is calculated by subtracting GAAP capital expenditures, net of proceeds from asset sales, from GAAP operating cash flow.

  6. Orders, an operating measure, is defined as a legally binding agreement from an authorized individual at a customer requesting CIRCOR to provide goods and/or services at a fixed or determinable price and CIRCOR is capable of providing such goods and services, when the terms and conditions are firm enough to assure subsequent payment by the customer. Consolidated and Industrial segment orders for Q2 2022 and Q2 2021 included $0.0 million and $5.2 million, respectively, relating to our Pipeline Engineering business. As previously disclosed in our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company discovered accounting irregularities in its Pipeline Engineering business unit resulting in a restatement of previously issued financial statements.

Company Files Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the Period Ended July 3, 2022

The Company today filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the second quarter of 2022.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release, the Company uses the non-GAAP financial measures adjusted net income, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, adjusted earnings per share and adjusted free cash flow. Non-GAAP financial measures are used by management in our financial and operating decision making because we believe they reflect our ongoing business and facilitate period-to-period comparisons. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating CIRCOR’s current operating performance and future prospects in the same manner as management does if they so choose. These non-GAAP financial measures can also assist investors and others in comparing CIRCOR’s current financial results with CIRCOR’s past financial results in a consistent manner.

We exclude costs and tax effects associated with special and restructuring activities, such as reducing overhead and consolidating facilities. We believe that the costs related to special and restructuring activities are not indicative of our normal operating costs. We exclude certain acquisition-related costs, including significant transaction costs and amortization of inventory and fixed-asset step-ups and the related tax effects. We exclude these costs because we do not believe they are indicative of our normal operating costs.

We exclude the expense and tax effects associated with the non-cash amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets because a significant portion of the purchase price for acquisitions may be allocated to intangible assets that have lives up to 25 years. Exclusion of the non-cash amortization expense allows comparisons of operating results that are consistent over time for both our newly acquired and long-held businesses and with both acquisitive and non-acquisitive peer companies.

We exclude certain gains/losses and related tax effects, which are either isolated or cannot be expected to occur again with any predictability, and that we believe are not indicative of our normal operating gains and losses. For example, we exclude gains/losses from items such as the sale of a business, significant litigation-related matters and lump-sum pension plan settlements. We exclude the results of discontinued operations. We exclude goodwill impairment charges. We exclude these costs because we do not believe they are indicative of our normal operating costs.

Due to the significance of recently sold or exited businesses and to provide a comparison of changes in our revenue and orders (an operating measure), we also discuss these changes on an "organic" basis. Organic is calculated assuming the divestitures and/or exited businesses completed prior to July 3, 2022 were completed on January 1, 2021 and excluding the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates.

CIRCOR’s management uses these non-GAAP measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, as the basis for measuring the Company’s operating performance and comparing such performance to that of prior periods and to the performance of our peers. We use such measures when publicly providing our business outlook, assessing future earnings potential, evaluating potential acquisitions and dispositions and in our financial and operating decision-making process, including for compensation purposes.

Investors should recognize that these non-GAAP measures might not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. These measures should be considered in addition and not as a substitute for or superior to, any measure of performance, cash flow or liquidity prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures is included in this news release.
