Friday, January 18, 2013

Parker Reports Fiscal 2013 Second Quarter Sales, Net Income and Earnings per Share07:30 EST Friday, January 18, 2013- Diluted earnings per share reach $1.19 - Company maintains fiscal 2013 earnings outlookCLEVELAND, Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE: PH), the global leader in motion and control technologies, today reported results for the fiscal 2013 second quarter ended December 31, 2012.  Fiscal 2013 second quarter sales of $3.07 billion were essentially flat compared with $3.11 billion in the prior year quarter. Acquisitions contributed 4 percent to sales which was largely offset by a reduction in organic sales, particularly internationally. Net income was $181.1 million compared with $242.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012, primarily reflecting reduced organic sales volume.  Fiscal 2013 second quarter earnings per diluted share were $1.19 compared with $1.56 in the prior year quarter. (Logo: ) Cash flow from operations for the first six months of fiscal 2013 was $347.3 million, or 5.5 percent of sales, compared with $563.4 million, or 8.9 percent of sales for the first six months of fiscal 2012. Cash flow from operations for the first six months of fiscal 2013 included a $225.6 million discretionary contribution to the company's pension plan. Excluding this discretionary contribution, cash flow from operations as a percent of sales was 9.1 percent for the first six months of fiscal 2013."We performed well in the second quarter considering continued economic weakness across all the regions we operate in," said Chairman, CEO and President, Don Washkewicz.  "Although economic conditions may improve, we continued to take prudent actions to strengthen profitability and cash flow as we enter the second half of the year, including cost reduction initiatives and adjustments to planned capital expenditures."Segment ResultsIn Industrial North America, second quarter sales increased 1.2 percent to $1.2 billion, and operating income was $183.9 million compared with $195.7 million in the same period a year ago.   In Industrial International, second quarter sales decreased 4.1 percent to $1.17 billion, and operating income was $123.4 million compared with $165.9 million in the same period a year ago.  In Aerospace, second quarter sales increased 6.5 percent to $528.7 million, and operating income was $52.2 million compared with $70.3 million in the same period a year ago. In Climate and Industrial Controls, second quarter sales decreased 18.3 percent to $170.2 million, reflecting the impact of a business divestiture, and operating income was $8.1 million compared with $9.8 million in the same period a year ago.    OrdersParker reported a decrease of 2 percent in orders for the quarter ending December 31, 2012, compared with the same quarter a year ago.  The company reported the following orders:  Orders declined 6 percent in Industrial North America compared with the same quarter a year ago. Orders declined 5 percent in Industrial International compared with the same quarter a year ago. Orders increased 14 percent in Aerospace on a rolling 12-month average basis. Orders increased 1 percent in Climate and Industrial Controls compared with the same quarter a year ago.OutlookFor the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013, the company has maintained guidance for earnings from continuing operations in the range of $6.15 to $6.75 per diluted share.  Fiscal 2013 guidance includes an expected year-over-year increase in domestic qualified pension expense of approximately $0.35 per diluted share due to accounting regulations which require the use of a lower discount rate based on current market conditions.  Washkewicz added, "Following the natural, annual cycle of our business, we anticipate that the second half of our fiscal year will be stronger than the first half.  In addition, ongoing actions to reduce costs and maintain cash flow should position us for a strong finish to fiscal year 2013."

For more information, visit the company's web site at or its investor information web site at on OrdersOrders provide near-term perspective on the company's outlook, particularly when viewed in the context of prior and future quarterly order rates. However, orders are not in themselves an indication of future performance. All comparisons are at constant currency exchange rates, with the prior year restated to the current-year rates. All exclude acquisitions until they can be reflected in both the numerator and denominator. Aerospace comparisons are rolling 12-month average computations. The total Parker orders number is derived from a weighted average of the year-over-year quarterly percent change in orders for Industrial North America, Industrial International, and Climate and Industrial Controls, and the year-over-year 12-month rolling average of orders for Aerospace. Forward-Looking StatementsForward-looking statements contained in this and other written and oral reports are made based on known events and circumstances at the time of release, and as such, are subject in the future to unforeseen uncertainties and risks. All statements regarding future performance, earnings projections, events or developments are forward-looking statements. It is possible that the future performance and earnings projections of the company, including its individual segments, may differ materially from current expectations, depending on economic conditions within its mobile, industrial and aerospace markets, and the company's ability to maintain and achieve anticipated benefits associated with announced realignment activities, strategic initiatives to improve operating margins, actions taken to combat the effects of the current economic environment, and growth, innovation and global diversification initiatives. A change in the economic conditions in individual markets may have a particularly volatile effect on segment performance. Among other factors which may affect future performance are: changes in business relationships with and purchases by or from major customers, suppliers or distributors, including delays or cancellations in shipments, disputes regarding contract terms or significant changes in financial condition, changes in contract cost and revenue estimates for new development programs and changes in product mix; ability to identify acceptable strategic acquisition targets; uncertainties surrounding timing, successful completion or integration of acquisitions; ability to realize anticipated cost savings from business realignment activities; threats associated with and efforts to combat terrorism; uncertainties surrounding the ultimate resolution of outstanding legal proceedings, including the outcome of any appeals; competitive market conditions and resulting effects on sales and pricing; increases in raw material costs that cannot be recovered in product pricing; the company's ability to manage costs related to insurance and employee retirement and health care benefits; and global economic factors, including manufacturing activity, air travel trends, currency exchange rates, difficulties entering new markets and general economic conditions such as inflation, deflation, interest rates and credit availability.
