DXP Enterprises, Inc. Announces 2013 First Quarter Results

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- DXP Enterprises, Inc. (Nasdaq: DXPE) today announced that for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013 it earned net income of $13.2 million, or $0.87 per fully diluted share. Compared to first quarter 2012 earnings of $11.6 million or $0.77 per fully diluted share, first quarter 2013 earnings per share improved 13.0%. Sequentially, earnings per share declined from $0.92 per fully diluted share, or $14.1 million in net income for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012.

Sales for the first quarter of 2012 increased $37.8 million, or 15.0% to approximately $290.1 million from $252.3 million for the same period in 2012. Sequentially, sales decreased $2.9 million, or 1.0%, from $293.0 million of sales for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012.

David R. Little, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer remarked, "In the short term, there are still a lot of questions around the pace of growth in the U.S. and Canada. We have demonstrated over the past few years our ability to successfully compete and deliver strong revenues and earnings through inconsistent times, and we are confident that we can continue to do so. During the first quarter, we experienced tepid growth within our Service Center and Supply Chain Services business segments and lumpy performance within Innovative Pumping Solutions. DXP's Sales and Operational Excellence programs, which impact the customer, continue to help us drive share gains, margins and cash flow in this low growth environment. While we are cautiously optimistic about the second half of 2013, overall, we expect to meet our expectations. That means we will continue to invest in the business and position DXP to gain market share. We believe the diversity of our business, our cost discipline and an attractive acquisition environment, positions DXP for the balance of 2013 and beyond."

Mac McConnell, Senior Vice President and CFO, added, "Our first quarter results were less than we expected. However, I am pleased we generated $14.6 million in free cash flow during the first quarter of 2013. Subsequent to the first quarter, we acquired National Process Equipment, Inc., a national Canadian pump distributor that we expect to be accretive to earnings. Our leverage ratio under our credit facility was at a modest 1.8:1 with $133.4 million in availability as of March 31, 2013."

We will host a conference call regarding 2013 first quarter results to be web cast live on the Company's website (www.dxpe.com) today at 5:00 P.M. Eastern time.
