14:44 EDTEMREmerson CEO Farr: Recent order trends suggest market conditions stabilizing
On Emerson's (EMR) Q1 earnings conference call, CEO David Farr said, "The pockets of growth our businesses captured were encouraging even though the level of total investment in our end markets continues to be slow. Recent order trends suggest market conditions have stabilized and may be poised for improvement, particularly in the emerging markets. Business investment remains slow and cautious globally, particularly in Europe, but there have been indications of thawing demand in certain markets." Despite the tenuous economic environment, the company expects to be on pace for record financial performance in 2013, with most of the gains coming in the first half of the year. Asia is expected to gain order growth momentum in the second quarter, especially in China and India. Also, steady demand in the near term from the continued recovery of residential end markets in U.S. is expected to drive profits. Management says the balance sheet remains strong and the near term outlook looks solid, supported by energy end market strength and a high backlog. Overall, the company says its cost structure remains well-positioned for continued sluggish demand for industrial capital goods in the near term.

07:25 EDTEMREmerson discloses three month orders decreased double digits
In a regulatory filing, Emerson disclosed three-month orders down double digits, reflecting the drop in oil prices a global slowdown in capital spending, most notably in energy-related markets, and significant strength in the U.S. dollar, which deducted 7 percentage points through currency translation. The company added, "European markets have recently shown some signs of improvement as a result of the weaker Euro. Underlying orders were down high single digits reflecting slow market conditions in all segments. Underlying sales for the second quarter will be flat compared to prior year, excluding unfavorable currency of 5% and an impact from divestitures of 2 percent. Reported GAAP sales for the second quarter will be down 7%. These results are in line with our commentary from the February orders release. We expect to increase full year restructuring spending to approximately $140M."
