Second Quarter 2020


Revenues for the quarter totaled $424.8 million, compared to $548.4 million in the prior-year period. EPS totaled $0.07 compared to $0.82 in the second quarter 2019.


Adjusted EPS was $0.46 compared to $1.26 in the second quarter 2019. Adjusted results are non-GAAP measures, and a non-GAAP reconciliation table is provided as an appendix to this release.


Roel Vestjens, President and CEO of Belden Inc., said, “Overall, in light of COVID-19 the business performed in line with our expectations during the second quarter. We are pleased to report double-digit organic order growth in our broadband & 5G business, along with positive operating and free cash flows. We are very comfortable with our liquidity position, and as a result during the second quarter we repaid $100 million of the $190 million that we previously drew down under our revolver.”




“The COVID-19 situation continues to create significant economic uncertainty and challenges in our global markets, but demand trends in our business appear to have stabilized. Assuming no further material disruptions related to the global pandemic, we expect modest sequential improvement in the third and fourth quarters. The Grass Valley divestiture represented an important milestone for Belden, and we were pleased to complete the transaction. We continue to align our portfolio of businesses around the favorable secular trends in industrial automation, cybersecurity, broadband & 5G, and smart buildings, and the Company is well positioned for profitable growth longer-term,” said Mr. Vestjens.
