GAMCO Investors Comments on Xylem Inc. - Oct 28, 2016

Xylem Inc. (NYSE:XYL) (2.6%) (XYL – $52.45 – NYSE) is a global leader in the design, manufacturing, and application of highly engineered technologies for the transportation, treatment, and testing of water. The company is expected to benefit from favorable long term fundamentals in the water industry, driven by scarcity, population growth, aging of the infrastructure, and the need to improve water quality. Further, with a large installed base of pumps and systems, the company is well positioned to increase aftermarket revenue, which currently represents roughly 40% of total revenues. Xylem’s attractive business mix generates strong cash flow, which is expected to support acquisitions across geographies and end markets and increase returns to shareholders. XYL is expected to generate 8%-12% earnings per share growth through 2020 as it accelerates its capital deployment strategy globally. The company recently announced its $1.7 billion acquisition of Sensus, a leading manufacturer of smart metering equipment and technologies.
