10/26/2022

SARASOTA, Fla., Oct. 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Roper Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: ROP) reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2022. Unless otherwise noted, the results and guidance in this press release are presented on a continuing operations basis.

Third quarter GAAP and adjusted revenue increased 10% to $1.35 billion, with organic revenue also increasing 10%. GAAP diluted earnings per share (“DEPS”) was $2.59, a 31% increase, and adjusted DEPS was $3.67, an 18% increase.

Adjusted EBITDA increased 12% to $555 million and adjusted EBITDA margin increased 80 basis points to 41.1%. GAAP operating cash flow was $219 million, which included tax payments associated with Roper’s divestiture activity. Excluding these tax payments, adjusted operating cash flow increased 12% to $376 million.

"Roper’s enhanced portfolio delivered outstanding third quarter results," said Neil Hunn, Roper Technologies’ President and CEO. "Organic revenue grew 10%, with broad-based strength across each of our three segments. Furthermore, our recently completed Frontline Education acquisition adds another leading vertical software business to the enterprise."

"We are increasing our guidance for the year, driven by the combination of excellent third quarter results, continued strong demand for our niche software and product solutions, and the addition of Frontline Education.”

“With the pending completion of our industrial sale and the recent addition of Frontline, the new, higher quality Roper portfolio is becoming more evident, and we have never been more excited about the company's future,” concluded Mr. Hunn.

Increasing 2022 Guidance

The Company now expects full year adjusted DEPS of $14.09 - $14.13, compared to previous guidance of $13.46 - $13.62

For the fourth quarter of 2022, the Company expects adjusted DEPS of $3.72 - $3.76.

The Company’s guidance excludes the impact of unannounced future acquisitions or divestitures, as well as any redeployment of proceeds from announced or completed divestitures.

Discontinued Operations

During the second quarter, Roper announced an agreement to sell a majority stake in its industrial businesses, including its entire historical Process Technologies reportable segment (AMOT, CCC, Cornell, FTI, Metrix, PAC, Roper Pump, and Viatran) and the industrial businesses within its historical Measurement & Analytical Solutions reportable segment (Alpha, Dynisco, Hansen, Hardy, Logitech, Struers, Technolog, and Uson). The financial results for these businesses are reported as discontinued operations for all periods presented.
