Xylem Inc. (NYSE: XYL), a leading global water technology company dedicated to solving the world’s most challenging water issues, today reported third quarter revenue of $1.4 billion, surpassing previous guidance, with strong commercial and operational execution. While orders were down 7 percent on a reported basis, they were down 1 percent organically, with the difference due to currency. The Company reported resilient underlying global demand with strong backlog growth.

Earnings also exceeded Xylem’s previous guidance, with strong margin performance. Net income was $12 million, or $0.07 per share. Net income margin decreased 810 basis points to 0.9 percent. These results were mainly driven by a previously announced, one-time non-cash pension plan settlement. Adjusted net income was $144 million, or $0.79 per share, which excludes the impacts of restructuring, realignment and special charges. Third quarter adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) margin was 18.3 percent, reflecting a year-over-year increase of 40 basis points. Strong price realization offset inflation and, coupled with productivity savings, drove the margin expansion, exceeding the impact of strategic investments.

“The team delivered very strong performance across all our regions, driving third quarter results well above expectations on all key metrics,” said Patrick Decker, Xylem president and CEO. “Demand remains resilient across our largest end-markets, and disciplined operational execution delivered double-digit revenue growth with strong margin expansion.”
