  • Net sales in the second quarter of 2013 rose 12.7% compared to the second quarter of 2012, reflecting strong sales in the Material Handing Segment.
  • The overall gross margin was 27.3% in the second quarter of 2013 compared to 26.2% in the second quarter of 2012. The increase was due mostly to cost savings that resulted from productivity improvements and material substitutions.
  • Net Income per diluted share increased 47% to $0.25 in the second quarter of 2013 compared to $0.17 in the second quarter of 2012, reflecting benefits from the Novel and Jamco acquisitions, cost reductions and the improved performance of the Lawn and Garden Segment.

President and Chief Executive Officer John C. Orr said, " I am very pleased with our performance in the second quarter as highlighted by our increased earnings per share of 47% year-over-year. I am particularly pleased with the second consecutive quarter of significant profit improvement in our Lawn and Garden Segment which is reflected in the segment's year-over-year increase in adjusted income before taxes of $2.7 million. Our recent acquisitions also contributed to our earnings per share growth and continue to be accretive."

Orr continued, "Earlier today, in a separate release, we announced phase two of our Lawn and Garden Segment restructuring which will position the segment for future growth and deliver annual savings of $8.0 million. A portion of those savings will begin to be realized in the fourth quarter of 2013. This second phase, coupled with the $5.0 million savings from the on-going phase one cost reduction initiative, will result in a total annual savings of $13.0 million in 2014."

Segment Results

The results below are as adjusted and exclude special pre-tax charges as detailed on the Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures included in this release.

Net sales in the Material Handling Segment for the second quarter of 2013 were $83.8 million compared to $60.3 million for the second quarter of 2012. The sales increase was driven by the Novel and Jamco acquisitions, a shift in customer orders into the second quarter and organic growth. Material Handling's adjusted income before taxes was $11.0 million for the second quarter of 2013 compared to $9.2 million for the second quarter of 2012. The increase in income before taxes was due mostly to the higher sales volumes and the acquisitions of Novel and Jamco.

Net sales in the Lawn and Garden Segment for the second quarter of 2013 were $40.9 million compared to $42.5 million for the second quarter of 2012. Lawn and Garden's adjusted income before taxes for the second quarter of 2013 was $1.2 million compared to a loss of $1.5 million for the second quarter of 2012. Productivity improvements and material substitution cost savings were the primary drivers behind the increase in adjusted income before taxes year-over-year.

Net sales in the Distribution Segment were $45.9 million for the second quarter of 2013 compared to $44.2 million for the second quarter of 2012. The increase in sales was due mostly to sales of new products and market share gains in equipment sales. Distribution's adjusted income before taxes was $3.9 million for the second quarter of 2013 compared to $4.1 million for the second quarter of 2012. Distribution continues to be impacted by a slow replacement tire market. Costs associated with an upgrade in the segment's information technology system contributed to the decline in adjusted income before taxes year-over-year.

Net sales in the Engineered Products Segment were $37.6 million for the second quarter of 2013 compared to $38.6 million for the second quarter of 2012. Strong sales in the marine and recreational vehicle markets were more than offset by a decline in custom sales year-over-year. Engineered Products' adjusted income before taxes was $5.1 million for the second quarter of 2013 compared to $4.7 million for the second quarter of 2012. A favorable product mix and productivity improvements led to the increase in income before taxes year-over-year, despite the lower sales.

Other Financial Items

For the six months ended June 30, 2013, cash flow provided by operations was $30.1 million compared to $7.9 million in the first half of 2012, reflecting efforts to better manage working capital.

Capital expenditures totaled $10.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and are still forecasted to be approximately $30 million to $35 million in 2013.

Outlook

The Company expects continued year-over-year improvement in each of the next two quarters in both sales and adjusted earnings excluding special pre-tax adjusted charges. These improvements will come from our recent acquisitions, organic growth, continued reinvestment in our operations, new product introductions, cost savings and the expected benefits from the Lawn and Garden Segment restructuring initiatives.
