Dorel reports solid second quarter 201209:21 EDT Thursday, August 09, 2012Company increases quarterly dividend by 100%Net income increases 32% despite negative currency trendJuvenile business improving EXCHANGESTSX: DII.B, DII.AMONTREAL, Aug. 9, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Dorel Industries Inc. (TSX: DII.B, DII.A) today announced results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012. Total revenue for the period was US$633.7 million, up 2.4% from US$619.0 million for the same quarter last year. Net income increased by 32.0% to US$30.3 million or US$0.95 per diluted share compared with US$23.0 million or US$0.70 per diluted share for the corresponding quarter of 2011.Year-to-date revenue rose 2.3% to US$1.25 billion from to US$1.23 billion last year with net income for the six months increasing by 9.9% to US$59.5 million or US$1.85 per diluted share. This compares to net income of US$54.2 million or US$1.65 per diluted share for the first half of 2011.The Board of Directors of Dorel has declared an increase in the Company's quarterly dividend to US$0.30 from US$0.15 on the Class A Multiple Voting Shares, Class B Subordinate Voting Shares and Deferred Share Units (DSU) of the Company. The first increased dividend amount of US$0.30 per share and DSU will be payable on September 6th, 2012 to shareholders of record at the close of business on August 23rd, 2012. The dividend policy was originally instituted in March 2007. Shareholders will now receive a total of US$1.20 per share per annum."Dorel has a proven track record of earnings and cash flow. We are optimistic about our long-term future earnings and are confident in our ability to sustain an increased dividend, thereby enhancing total return to our shareholders," stated Dorel President and CEO Martin Schwartz."Dorel performed well in our various business segments, despite a stubborn and unstable economy in the majority of our geographic markets.  We have maintained the positive momentum established in the final quarter of 2011 through a combination of strong marketing and judicious cost containment."Operating profit in the Juvenile segment grew 15% over the same quarter a year ago, despite a strengthening U.S. dollar which reduced earnings by approximately US$3.5 million in the quarter compared to the prior year.  Dorel Juvenile Group (DJG) USA improved as the tactical plan put in place last year has started to bring the needed results. Europe as a whole is very challenging, yet Dorel Europe maintained its profitability with solid results in Northern Europe and the positive contribution of the newly acquired Dorel Polska, based in Poland.  Another positive is Dorel Chile which saw growth in both its wholesale and retail businesses."Recreational/Leisure's top line grew once again, though it was tempered by adverse foreign exchange rates.  Profits in the quarter were flat as the negative impact of currency reduced earnings by approximately US$2.5 million.  Intense branding of the Cannondale line continues to drive results.  The Liquigas Cannondale Pro-Cycling Team has performed well this year with various victories.  In the recently completed Tour de France, Peter Sagan won the prestigious green jersey as well as three stages in the overall tour and Vincenzo Nibali placed third overall.  We are pleased with the sponsorship of the team and intend to maintain Dorel's commitment to the promotion of our brands.  As well, we continue to invest in R&D, driving expansion and distribution across the globe. Operating profit for the quarter grew in Home Furnishings and Internet sales were up considerably," commented Mr. Schwartz. Summary of Financial HighlightsSecond Quarters Ended June 30All figures in thousands of US $, except per share amounts 20122011Change%Total revenue         633,711         619,0102.4%Net income           30,345           22,99332.0% Per share - basic              0.95              0.7035.7% Per share - diluted              0.95              0.7035.7%Average number of shares outstanding -diluted weighted average32,046,44332,828,089     Summary of Financial HighlightsSix Months ended June 30All figures in thousands of US $, except per share amounts 20122011Change%Total revenue      1,254,811      1,226,7932.3%Net income           59,508           54,1579.9% Per share - basic              1.87              1.6612.7% Per share - diluted              1.85              1.6512.1%Average number of shares outstanding -diluted weighted average32,080,03332,862,173 Juvenile Segment  Second Quarters Ended June 30 20122011  $% of rev.$% of rev.Change%Total revenue      254,781     243,965 4.4%Gross profit        69,39127.2%      61,73625.3%12.4%Operating profit        17,1186.7%      14,8556.1%15.2%      Six Months ended June 30 20122011  $% of rev.$% of rev.Change%Total revenue      524,280     513,585 2.1%Gross profit      143,75827.4%    133,35626.0%7.8%Operating profit        37,7837.2%      38,5277.5%(1.9%) After adjusting for the impact of varying exchange rates and new businesses acquired, the second quarter organic revenue increase was approximately 1%, reversing a trend of declining organic sales growth.  Year-to-date, organic revenues declined by approximately 2%.For the quarter, the largest factor in the earnings improvement was in operating profit at Dorel Juvenile Group (DJG) USA where sales increased by approximately 5% and gross margins benefitted from more stable costs. Dorel Chile also contributed to the profit increase.  The recent weakening of most currencies against the US dollar had a negative impact on earnings for the quarter of approximately US$3.5 million versus last year.  As such, the earnings increase would have been almost 40% if currencies were consistent year-over-year. At Dorel Europe, the Southern markets continue to endure difficult economic conditions, yet the division as a whole delivered improved earnings when expressed in Euros.Recreational/Leisure Segment Second Quarters Ended June 30 20122011  $% of rev.$% of rev.Change%Total revenue      251,911   249,094 1.1%Gross profit        63,18325.1%    60,59224.3%4.3%Operating profit        21,6068.6%    21,2748.5%1.6%      Six Months ended June 30 20122011  $% of rev.$% of rev.Change%Total revenue      472,829   449,521 5.2%Gross profit      121,62325.7%  111,58724.8%9.0%Operating profit        42,9869.1%    39,0458.7%10.1% Organic sales growth, excluding the impact of foreign exchange variations on the segment's non-US based businesses was approximately 7% year-to-date. The increases are in the IBD channel in most of the segment's markets and are being driven by improved sales in several bike categories.  The decline in the value of the Euro versus the US dollar negatively impacted revenues by approximately 2% and as a result the reported revenue increase in the quarter was only 1.1%.  Sales in June were also lower as certain mass market customers reduced orders in an attempt to reduce their in-stock inventory levels.Earnings were negatively impacted by the decline in the value of the Euro and certain other currencies against the US dollar. Specifically, compared to the prior year, Cycling Sports Group's (CSG) gross margin dollars were reduced by approximately US$2.5 million in the quarter. Approximately 50% of CSG's revenues are from markets outside of the United States and as such are affected by foreign currency more than the segment's mass market business which is mostly comprise of US-based customers. Progress continued to be made in returning to profitability at the segment's apparel division, which markets the SUGOI brand.Home Furnishings Segment Second Quarters Ended June 30 20122011  $% of rev.$% of rev.Change %Total revenue      127,019 125,951 0.8%Gross profit        16,57413.0%   15,60312.4%6.2%Operating profit          6,6945.3%      6,2675.0%6.8%      Six Months ended June 30 20122011  $% of rev.$% of rev.Change %Total revenue      257,702   263,687 (2.3%)Gross profit        32,30412.5%    32,78912.4%(1.5%)Operating profit        12,4854.8%    14,0175.3%(10.9%)For the quarter, Home Furnishings revenues increased slightly versus the prior year as sales to the Internet sales channel offset declines in the segment's other major channels of distribution. Operating profit for the quarter increased versus both the prior year and this year's first quarter, as profitability was aided by a more stable cost environment.  Partially offsetting this was a less profitable sales mix at several of the segment's divisions.Statements of Financial Position and Cash flowsThe key financial position components of working capital, accounts receivable, inventory and accounts payable, all increased significantly compared to December 30, 2011 levels. However, this is in line with business requirements. Second quarter inventory increased to US$499.5 million, its highest level since last year's comparable period, to service shipments in the second half this year. Inventory is expected to return to levels similar to last year end by December 30, 2012. The higher inventory amount also explains the increase in accounts payable from US$323.6 million to US$391.7 million as certain purchases within the quarter remain to be paid.For the first half of the year, cash flow provided by operating activities was US$52.5 million compared to US$39.4 million in 2011. Despite the changes to working capital, the net impact on cash flow was similar to the prior year.  Year-to-date investing activities totalled US$29.4 million versus US$24.8 million in 2011. As part of its Normal Course Issuer Bid, the Company disbursed US$16.9 million in the first six months, compared to US$2.6 million in the prior year. The Company also disbursed US$9.6 million year-to-date for dividends. These were the main factors in the first half US$3.6 million increase in debt, net of cash.Outlook"Pre-tax earnings for the second half this year are expected to be higher than last year, driven by advances in the Juvenile segment.  Specifically, significant progress in North America and a greater contribution from Latin America will ensure that we improve upon the disappointing third quarter in 2011. Recreational / Leisure remains on track to exceed last year's record earnings, whereas we expect Home Furnishings' operating profit to be slightly below last year's levels.  There was a significant tax recovery in last year's third quarter which will not re-occur this year. Our expectations for the 2012 tax rate remain in the range of 15% to 20%," commented Mr. Schwartz."While we expect input costs to remain relatively stable in the foreseeable future, exchange rates can be volatile and are difficult to predict. Our pre-tax income improvement expected for the balance of the year assumes exchange rates similar to those of today, but a further decline in currencies, especially the Euro, could negatively impact future earnings," concluded Mr. Schwartz.Conference CallDorel Industries Inc. will hold a conference call to discuss these results today, August 9, 2012 at 2:00 P.M.

Forward-looking statements, by their very nature, are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties and are based on several assumptions which give rise to the possibility that actual results could differ materially from Dorel's expectations expressed in or implied by such forward-looking statements and that the objectives, plans, strategic priorities and business outlook may not be achieved. As a result, Dorel cannot guarantee that any forward-looking statement will materialize. Forward-looking statements are provided in this press release for the purpose of giving information about Management's current expectations and plans and allowing investors and others to get a better understanding of Dorel's operating environment.
