May 2019 Orders Comments

Total Emerson trailing three-month orders increased 1 percent with underlying orders up 4 percent, excluding a 3 percent unfavorable currency impact resulting from the stronger U.S. dollar.

Automation Solutions orders increased 3 percent and were up 6 percent on an underlying basis excluding unfavorable currency of 3 percent. Growth in underlying orders was positive across all world areas and was consistent with expectations management communicated at the Electrical Products Group conference in May, supported by continued strength in Asia, Middle East & Africa and Europe and stable trends in the Americas. Underlying orders growth was led by long cycle businesses, Final Control and Systems, which were up 10 percent and 7 percent, respectively, reflecting strong project activity and maintenance and repair (MRO) spending.

Underlying orders in the Americas were in-line with management's expectations, up low-single digits. Trends were stable, as broad-based investment activity across process and hybrid end markets was partially offset by a slowdown in upstream oil and gas spending and slow discrete manufacturing end markets, which were impacted by soft short-cycle demand and high channel inventory resulting from last year's tariff impact and price increases. We continue to expect oil and gas spending to improve modestly through the remainder of the fiscal year and discrete demand to improve after channel inventory re-balances over the next couple months.

Underlying orders growth in Europe was up over 10 percent, reflecting favorable trends in developed and emerging economies in the region, strong MRO activity and conversion of mid-sized and large projects in midstream oil and gas, power, chemical and life sciences end markets.

Underlying orders growth in Asia, Middle East & Africa remained strong, up high-single digits, supported by continued favorable trends in most key end markets.

Commercial & Residential Solutions orders were down 2 percent with underlying orders flat excluding unfavorable currency of 2 percent. Orders in the Asia Climate Technologies business improved but remained negative, and were below management's expectations as increased trade tensions dampened consumer and commercial demand and channel inventory re-balancing continued. Excluding the Asia Climate Technologies business, Commercial & Residential Solutions underlying orders growth was up low-single digits, primarily driven by solid North American air conditioning demand.

Europe continued to track favorably with underlying orders up low-single digits, reflecting stable trends in the region. Global professional tools was down low-single digits, consistent with management's expectations, reflecting some channel inventory re-balancing.
