Carlisle Reports Second Quarter Diluted EPS from Continuing Operations of $0.13, Including Goodwill Impairment Charge at Carlisle Transportation Products; Excluding Goodwill Impairment Charge, Announces Diluted EPS from Continuing Operations of $1.14

Evaluating Strategic Alternatives for Carlisle Transportation Products Segment

CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Carlisle Companies Incorporated (NYS: CSL) reported $996.1 million in net sales from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2013, an increase of 1.2% versus the prior year. The acquisition of Thermax/Raydex (collectively "Thermax") in the Carlisle Interconnect Technologies segment contributed 2.6% to sales in the second quarter. Organic sales declined by 1.4%. The negative impact on net sales from fluctuations in foreign exchange was negligible.

Reported income from continuing operations was $8.2 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, in the second quarter 2013. Excluding the non-cash after-tax goodwill impairment charge of $66.1 million at Carlisle Transportation Products, income from continuing operations was $74.3 million, or $1.14 per diluted share, a 17% decline from income of $89.4 million, or $1.39 per diluted share, in 2012. Income from continuing operations, excluding the impairment charge, was lower in the second quarter of 2013 versus the prior year due to lower sales volume in some of our key industrial markets and negative selling price realization within Carlisle Construction Materials.

For the six months ended June 30, 2013, net sales from continuing operations of $1.85 billion decreased 1.1% compared to the prior year, reflecting lower organic sales of 4.1%, partially offset by acquisition growth of 3.0%. Reported income from continuing operations for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was $63.5 million, or $0.98 per diluted share. Excluding the impairment charge, income from continuing operations for the first six months of 2013 was $129.6 million, or $2.00 per diluted share, as compared to income of $149.4, or $2.34 per diluted share in 2012.

All financial and percentage comparisons are made to the same quarter of the previous year, unless otherwise stated. Reconciliations of reported amounts to results excluding the goodwill impairment charge are included in the financial exhibits.


David A. Roberts, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "For the second quarter of 2013, our results were again challenged by the significant decline in the global off-highway equipment market, continued weather related headwinds in certain key markets as well as negative price realization within our Construction Materials segment, which enjoyed very favorable price realization last year. As a result, organic sales were down slightly this quarter and our EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes) of $122.5 million, excluding the pre-tax impairment charge, declined by 13% versus last year.

"Sales at Carlisle Construction Materials (CCM) grew 4.4% in the second quarter compared to the prior year and EBIT was lower by 8.5% as weather conditions remained challenging. Despite the challenging weather conditions and negative price realization, EBIT margin was an impressive 15.9%. We expect the year-over-year growth outlook in both the reroofing and non-residential construction markets to be favorable for upcoming periods.

"At our Carlisle Interconnect Technologies segment (CIT), sales grew by 27% and EBIT increased 28%. Organic sales growth in the second quarter was 4.3%. We achieved solid growth in our aerospace market with growing IFE (in-flight entertainment) sales. Additionally, the Boeing 787 program began ramping up at the end of the quarter. However, our growth was curbed by the decline in military programs. The integration of the Thermax acquisition continues to exceed expectations. This acquisition contributed a very strong EBIT margin of 18.1% on $26.0 million in sales in the quarter.

"At our Carlisle Transportation Products (CTP) segment, sales were down 3.7% as wet weather conditions negatively impacted demand in our outdoor power equipment and agriculture markets. Our expectations are for sales for the rest of 2013 to be relatively level to the prior year.

"We recorded a non-cash pre-tax loss of $100.0 million at CTP for goodwill impairment during the second quarter. The recent increase in interest rates resulted in a higher rate used to discount CTP's projected future cash flows, reducing CTP's estimated fair value. CTP's EBIT, excluding the impairment charge, declined 32% during the second quarter on lower sales volume and continued inventory reduction efforts. Notwithstanding the impairment charge or the unfavorable weather impacts we experienced this quarter, our performance outlook for this segment has not changed.

"The CTP segment has been challenged in 2013 by unfavorable weather conditions and has also undergone significant restructuring of its business in recent years. However, we believe that this business has stabilized and the outlook is favorable. While we are optimistic about the future for CTP, it is not core to Carlisle's growth strategy. As such, we have retained SunTrust Robinson Humphrey as financial advisor to assist in evaluating strategic alternatives for CTP.

"Second quarter sales at our Carlisle Brake & Friction (CBF) segment declined by 25% over the prior year but grew sequentially versus the first quarter of 2013 by 3.1%. While EBIT was down 48% from the prior year, CBF maintained a favorable margin of 13.2%. Because of uncertainty in our global markets and the decline in commodities, we do not expect demand for our braking applications in the heavy equipment market to recover from current levels for the remainder of this year.

"Finally, we're pleased with the 28% EBIT improvement at our Carlisle Foodservice Products (CFS) segment. We expect continued year-over-year margin improvement in the second half of this year as CFS continues to achieve savings on its previous restructuring activities."

Roberts concluded by stating, "The year-over-year growth outlook for our commercial roofing and aerospace markets is positive for the remainder of 2013. We are planning for total sales growth, including acquisitions, in 2013 to be in the low-to-mid single digit percentage range. Excluding the impairment charge we took this quarter, we expect modest EBIT growth and slightly lower EBIT margin versus the prior year.

"We remain committed to making investments in our businesses to support our long-term goals. Capital expenditures for the year are expected to be approximately $116 million. We currently have cash on hand of $168 million and $600 million of availability under our revolving credit facility, leaving us solidly positioned to pursue our long-term growth objectives."

Segment Results for Second Quarter 2013

Carlisle Construction Materials (CCM): Net sales in the second quarter of 2013 of $490.5 million increased by 4.4%, primarily reflecting higher demand from new non-residential construction, partially offset by lower selling price. CCM's EBIT margin of 15.9% in the second quarter of 2013 declined by 230 basis points primarily reflecting lower selling prices coupled with higher raw material costs in our insulation products due to continued pressure on key feed stocks.

Carlisle Transportation Products (CTP): Net sales in the second quarter of 2013 decreased 3.7% to $203.5 million as compared to the prior year primarily reflecting 10% lower sales to the outdoor power equipment market and 4.2% lower sales to the agriculture/construction market. Sales to the high speed trailer market declined by 3.2% versus the prior year. These declines were partially offset by a 5.1% increase in sales to CTP's power sports market. EBIT margin, excluding the impact of the $100.0 million impairment charge, declined by 260 basis points to 6.5% in the second quarter due to lower sales and lower production to reduce inventory. CTP's reported EBIT margin including the impairment charge was negative 42.7% during the second quarter 2013.

Carlisle Brake & Friction (CBF): Net sales in the second quarter of 2013 declined 25% to $93.6 million versus the prior year. Sales for CBF's off-highway braking applications to the construction and mining markets declined by 28% and 42%, respectively. These declines were partially offset by an uptick in demand in the agriculture market of 11% including increased demand in Europe for CBF's agriculture applications. CBF's EBIT margin during the second quarter decreased 590 basis points to 13.2%, primarily due to lower sales volumes.

Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CIT): Net sales in the second quarter of 2013 increased 27% to $145.7 million on acquisition growth of 22.7% and organic sales growth of 4.3% versus the prior year. Sales in CIT's aerospace market were up 10%, partially offset by a 19% decline in sales to the military and defense market. CIT's sales to the test and measurement market grew by 29% however this growth was offset by lower sales to CIT's industrial customers. EBIT margin for CIT of 15.3% was relatively level to the prior year, primarily due to higher sales volume partially offset by unfavorable mix changes.

Carlisle FoodService Products (CFS): Net sales in the second quarter of 2013 of $62.8 million declined slightly versus the prior year, primarily reflecting 13% lower sales of our healthcare products offset by 4.1% higher sales for our foodservice products. In the second quarter 2013, conditions in the restaurant industry displayed slow improvement. EBIT margin grew 260 basis points to 11.6% during the second quarter primarily due to savings from prior year restructuring activities and reduced operating costs.

Cash Flow

Cash flow provided from operations of $119.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 declined by $34.8 million versus the prior year primarily on reduced earnings from operations. For the first six months of 2013, average working capital (defined as the average of the quarter end balances, excluding current year acquisitions, receivables, plus inventory less accounts payable) as a percentage of annualized sales (defined as year-to-date net sales, excluding current year acquisitions, calculated on an annualized basis) decreased to 21.0%, as compared to 21.8% for the prior year.

Free cash flow (defined as cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures) was $70.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013, a reduction of $23.6 million versus the prior year period. Included in capital expenditures of $49.4 million for the first six months of 2013 were investments in two new polyiso plants and the construction of our PVC plant at CCM.
