Dover’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Richard J. Tobin, said, “Our team delivered a strong second quarter performance which led to record quarterly revenue and sequential and year-over-year earnings growth, despite a difficult operating environment and significant foreign currency headwinds. Our backlog remains at a historically high level, providing a good line of sight for operational execution while new order bookings normalize as our lead times improve.

“Input shortages and the COVID-19 lockdowns in China negatively impacted shipment volumes and fixed cost absorption across multiple businesses. Despite these headwinds, our operating margin improved sequentially in the quarter, driven by cost controls, overall strong volume and meaningfully improving price-cost dynamics, which we expect to drive profitability in the second half of the year.

“Our strong balance sheet supports our disciplined capital allocation initiatives. We are investing in capacity expansions and productivity improvements across many operating companies to capture secular revenue growth opportunities and continue driving efficiencies. The recently-announced Malema acquisition closed on July 1 and we continue our pursuit of attractive bolt-on acquisitions. We also repurchased $85 million of our common stock in the second quarter and will continue to proactively evaluate various capital deployment alternatives through the remainder of the year.

“Our strong backlog, constructive demand and execution playbook tailored to various operating scenarios position us well to deliver revenue and earnings growth amidst continuing economic uncertainty. We are maintaining our 2022 adjusted full-year guidance.”


In 2022, Dover expects to generate GAAP EPS in the range of $7.44 to $7.64 (adjusted EPS of $8.45 to $8.65), based on full year revenue growth of 8% to 10% (8% to 10% on an organic basis).
