“Barnes Group’s strong financial performance during the second quarter reflects the ongoing benefit of our focus on profitable growth and operating productivity,” said Gregory F. Milzcik, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Double-digit sales growth drove solid operating profit improvement in both of our business segments this quarter, and we expect to see further profitability leverage from incremental sales as our end-markets continue their rebound.”

Logistics and Manufacturing Services

  • The Logistics and Manufacturing Services segment recorded sales of $155.3 million in the second quarter of 2011, up $16.8 million or 12 percent from last year’s second quarter. This segment achieved $11.6 million of organic sales growth primarily from aerospace aftermarket and North American distribution businesses. Foreign currency translation positively affected second quarter 2011 net sales by approximately $5.2 million.
  • Operating profit at Logistics and Manufacturing Services increased 65 percent to $16.8 million, from $10.2 million in the second quarter of 2010. The increase in profitability was positively impacted by higher sales, improved customer sales mix and further productivity improvements in the North American distribution businesses. The aerospace aftermarket business likewise benefited from operating profit flow-through on higher sales. Operating profit for the segment was partially offset by costs associated with strategic initiatives.

Precision Components

  • The Precision Components segment recorded sales of $175.8 million in the second quarter of 2011, up $29.2 million, a 20 percent increase from last year’s second quarter. Organic sales grew $21.0 million in the quarter as a result of increases in the North American and European industrial manufacturing businesses and from better performance in the transportation industry, including automotive. Net sales in the aerospace OEM business also achieved double-digit growth. Foreign currency translation positively affected second quarter 2011 net sales by approximately $8.2 million.
  • Operating profit at Precision Components was $16.7 million, an increase of 24 percent. The operating profit improvement resulted from the beneficial impact of higher sales levels combined with lower cost structures resulting from previous actions and lean initiatives. These improvements were offset in part by incremental expense from higher production levels, unfavorable foreign exchange, and added costs for strategic initiatives.

Additional Information

  • Interest expense decreased $2.6 million from last year’s second quarter to $2.4 million. The decrease was a result of a lower average effective interest rate combined with a reduction in debt discount amortization and the maturity of interest rate swap agreements. The lower average interest rate reflects the significant shift from fixed rate debt to lower variable rate debt due to the retirement of senior notes and redemption of the 3.75% convertible notes. Both were funded using the Company’s low cost variable rate credit facility.
  • The Company’s effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2011 was 27.6 percent, compared to 16.0 percent in the second quarter last year. The increase in the second quarter 2011 effective tax rate was primarily driven by a projected shift in the mix of earnings attributable to higher-taxing jurisdictions, the recognition of a discrete tax expense of $1.8 million related to tax adjustments for prior years, and the effect of an increase in the planned repatriation of a portion of current year earnings to the U.S.

Revised 2011 Outlook

The Company now expects 2011 revenue to grow 12 to 14 percent from 2010, and earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $1.35 to $1.45, up 42 to 53 percent from 2010. Milzcik continued, “Looking forward, we anticipate continued improvement in our end-markets, especially in the aerospace businesses. Coupling a positive demand environment with the ongoing benefits of our focus on profitable growth, we now expect to deliver a higher level of performance for the year.”
