 Dresser-Rand Group Inc. ("Dresser-Rand" or the "Company") (NYSE: DRC), a global supplier of rotating equipment and aftermarket parts and services, reported net income of $23.6 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, for the first quarter 2012, compared with net income of $0.4 million, or breakeven earnings per diluted share, for the first quarter 2011.  First quarter 2011 results include a pre-tax charge to non-operating income of approximately $15.4 million ($0.13 per diluted share after-tax) related to a debt refinancing.   

Vincent R. Volpe Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Dresser-Rand, said, "We are pleased with our first quarter 2012 financial results.   Income from operations of $52 million was up 169% from year ago levels and above the top end of our guidance range.  Bookings of approximately $442 million and $385 million for new units and aftermarket parts and services, respectively, were strong and important in helping us achieve our 2012 earnings goals and in building a strong backlog for 2013.

"As previously guided, we expect to see improved operating margins commensurate with the increase in volume over the balance of the year and, as such, are reiterating our full year operating income guidance of $360 to $420 million. Similarly, we are reiterating bookings guidance for new units and aftermarket parts and services in the range of $1.7 to $1.9 billion and $1.4 to $1.6 billion, respectively.

"Our backlog at the end of the quarter was at a record level of approximately $2.7 billion, which was 28% higher than the year ago level.  Our new units backlog of $2.2 billion was up approximately 24% and gives us a good start on 2013 new unit revenues with approximately $900 million of the new unit backlog scheduled to ship in 2013.

"On the strategic front, during the first quarter, we acquired Synchrony, Inc., a technology development company with a portfolio of world-class technologies and products including active magnetic bearings (AMB), low power, high speed motors, small generators, and power electronics for clean, efficient, and reliable rotating machinery. 

Bookings of $827.0 million for the first quarter 2012 were 58% higher than the $522.3 million for the first quarter 2011. The $2,746.8 million backlog at the end of March 2012 was 28% higher than the $2,151.7 million backlog at the end of March 2011.

Revenues for the first quarter 2012 of $661.8 million were 87% higher than the first quarter 2011.  Guascor was acquired in May 2011 and contributed approximately $91.2 million of revenues in the first quarter 2012.

Total operating income for the first quarter 2012 was $51.7 million compared to operating income of $19.2 million for the first quarter 2011.  As a percentage of revenues, operating income for the first quarter 2012 of 7.8% compares with 5.5% for the corresponding period in 2011.  First quarter 2012 operating income increased compared with the corresponding period in 2011 principally due to higher revenues.  Operating margins improved principally from operating leverage on higher volumes. 

Net income was $23.6 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, for the first quarter 2012, compared to net income of $0.4 million, or breakeven earnings per diluted share, for the first quarter 2011.  Net income for the first quarter 2011 includes the previously mentioned financing related costs of approximately $15.4 million pre-tax, which decreased earnings per diluted share by $0.13 after-tax.

New Units Segment

New unit bookings of $442.2 million for the first quarter 2012 were 70% higher than the bookings of $259.5 million for the corresponding period in 2011. The backlog at March 31, 2012, of $2,174.3 million was 24% higher than the $1,747.7 million backlog at March 31, 2011.

New unit revenues were $367.7 million for the first quarter 2012 compared to $144.9 million for first quarter 2011, an increase of $222.8 million or 154%.   Guascor contributed approximately $21.1 million of revenues in the first quarter 2012.

New unit operating income of $20.2 million for the first quarter 2012 compares with operating income of $13.5 million for the first quarter 2011.  This segment's operating margin was 5.5% for the first quarter 2012, compared to 9.3% for the first quarter 2011.  The decrease in operating margin was principally due to a less favorable mix of new unit projects as the three months ended March 31, 2011, included a few higher margin projects compared to the three months ended March 31, 2012.  Additionally, margins were adversely impacted in 2012 by a higher allocation of overhead cost to the segment resulting from the higher percentage of new unit revenues to total revenues.

Aftermarket Parts and Services Segment

Aftermarket bookings of $384.8 million for the first quarter 2012 were 46% higher than bookings of $262.8 million for the corresponding period in 2011.  The backlog at March 31, 2012, of $572.5 million was 42% higher than the $404.0 million backlog at March 31, 2011.

Aftermarket parts and services revenues were $294.1 million for the first quarter 2012, compared to $209.3 million for the first quarter 2011, an increase of $84.8 million or 41%.   Guascor contributed approximately $70.1 million of revenues in the first quarter 2012.

Aftermarket operating income was $53.3 million for the first quarter 2012, compared to $28.9 million for the first quarter 2011.  This segment's operating margin was 18.1% for the first quarter 2012, compared to 13.8% for the first quarter 2011.  This increase was principally from the benefits of operating leverage on higher volume and the lower allocation of overhead cost to the segment resulting from the lower percentage of aftermarket revenues to total revenues. 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of March 31, 2012, cash and cash equivalents totaled $123.1 million and borrowing availability under the $700 million revolving credit portion of the Company's senior secured credit facility was $233.1 million, as $219.7 million was used for outstanding letters of credit and $247.2 million of borrowings was outstanding.

In the first quarter 2012, cash provided by operating activities was $9.9 million compared with cash used in operating activities of $4.5 million for the corresponding period in 2011.  In the first quarter 2012, net cash used in investing activities was $55.8 million compared with $11.4 million for the first quarter 2011.  Cash used in investing activities in the first quarter 2012 includes $48.8 million related to the acquisition of Synchrony, Inc. and $4.0 million related to an additional capital investment in the noncontrolling interest of Echogen Power Systems, LLC.  Cash used in investing activities in the first quarter 2011 includes $5 million related to the investment in Echogen and a $1.3 million license fee payment to Echogen.  Cash provided by financing activities was $37.5 million in the first quarter of 2012, compared to cash used in financing activities of $119.0 million in the first quarter of 2011.  As of March 31, 2012, net debt was approximately $920.5 million.

Outlook

The Company reiterates its guidance for 2012 with expectations for new unit bookings of $1.7 to $1.9 billion, aftermarket bookings of $1.4 to $1.6 billion, operating income of $360 to $420 million, new unit segment margins in low double digits and aftermarket segment margins in the range of 22 to 24%.  The Company expects its full year 2012 interest expense to be in the range of $60 to $65 million, and the Company expects its effective tax rate to be approximately 32 to 34 percent. 

The Company expects second quarter 2012 operating income to be in the range of 17 to 19% of the total year.
