"AMETEK’s financial results in the second quarter were outstanding," said David A. Zapico, AMETEK Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Strong sales growth combined with superb operating performance drove double digit earnings growth and excellent cash flow generation. Given these results and our positive outlook for the balance of the year, we are again increasing our full year 2017 guidance."

For the second quarter of 2017, EIG sales were $657.7 million, up 10% from the second quarter of 2016. EIG operating income was $165.2 million and operating margins were 25.1% in the quarter.

"EIG had a great quarter with excellent sales and operating performance. Sales were up nicely on solid organic growth and the contributions from the acquisitions of Nu Instruments, HS Foils and Rauland," commented Mr. Zapico. "We continue to see broad based sales growth across our EIG businesses and our encouraged by the strong orders performance in the first half of the year."

In the second quarter of 2017, EMG sales were $406.9 million, up 7% compared to the second quarter of 2016. EMG operating income was $85.6 million and operating margins were a very strong 21.0% in the quarter.

"EMG also had a great quarter with outstanding sales and orders growth. Sales were up driven by solid organic growth across all businesses and the contribution from the acquisition of Laserage," noted Mr. Zapico.

2017 Outlook

"We are very encouraged by the excellent first half results. Sales and order growth has been strong and broad based. We are executing very well and generating strong cash flow, which we will continue to invest back into our businesses and on strategic acquisitions. While our performance reflects, in part, improving macro-economic conditions, it also highlights the underlying quality of our businesses and the strength of our Growth Strategies," commented Mr. Zapico.

"As a result of the second quarter performance, we are increasing our sales and earnings guidance for the full year. We now anticipate 2017 sales to increase high-single digits on a percentage basis, with organic sales up low to mid-single digits. We are increasing our 2017 earnings guidance range to $2.46 to $2.52 per diluted share, up 7% to 10% over 2016 adjusted diluted earnings per share. This is an increase from our previous range of $2.40 to $2.48 per diluted share," he added.

"For the third quarter, we anticipate sales will increase approximately 10% compared to the same period last year. We expect our earnings to be approximately $0.60 to $0.62 per diluted share, up 7% to 11% versus the third quarter of 2016," concluded Mr. Zapico.
