SARASOTA, Fla., July 31, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Roper Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:ROP), a diversified technology company, reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Roper reports results – including revenue, gross margin, operating margin, net income, and diluted earnings per share (“DEPS”) – on a GAAP basis and an adjusted basis.

Second quarter GAAP revenue increased 22% to $1.13 billion and adjusted revenue grew 23% to $1.15 billion. GAAP gross margin increased 130 basis points to 62.2% and adjusted gross margin increased 170 basis points to 62.7%.

“Our businesses continued to deliver excellent revenue and EBITDA growth in the quarter,” said Brian Jellison, Roper’s Chairman, President and CEO. “Revenue grew organically 6% with broad-based contributions from all four reporting segments. We also benefited significantly from our recent acquisitions, Deltek and ConstructConnect, which continue to perform exceptionally well.

“Outstanding margin and cash flow performance once again demonstrated the ability of our asset-light, niche market businesses to deliver excellent results. EBITDA as a percentage of revenue increased in all segments. Importantly, our year to date operating cash flow grew 33%, allowing us to reduce debt by $570 million. We are very pleased with our strong first half performance and we are well positioned to continue our positive momentum throughout the second half of the year,” concluded Mr. Jellison.
