Carlisle Companies Reports $0.87 Earnings Per Share for the Second Quarter 2011, a 40% Increase from the Prior Year

CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Carlisle Companies Incorporated (NYSE:CSL) reported net sales from continuing operations of $870.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011, a 27% increase from net sales of $687.6 million in the second quarter of 2010. The Company’s organic sales increase of 14% from the prior year period was primarily driven by strong sales growth in the Company’s off-highway brake and friction, commercial re-roofing and aerospace businesses. The Carlisle Brake & Friction (“CBF”) segment’s acquisition of Hawk contributed $83.5 million in sales, or 12%, in the second quarter of 2011. The impact of foreign currency exchange rates on net sales was an increase of less than 1% in the second quarter of 2011.

Income from continuing operations increased 43% to $55.3 million, or $0.87 per diluted share, in the second quarter 2011 compared with $38.8 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2010. The increase in income was due to the earnings contribution from the Hawk acquisition, a lower effective tax rate, organic sales growth and efficiencies gained through the Carlisle Operating System. Partially offsetting this increase were higher raw material costs experienced in all segments in the second quarter of 2011 as compared to the second quarter of 2010.

Comment

David A. Roberts, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Our results demonstrated continued strong sales and overall earnings growth. Carlisle Brake & Friction achieved another record sales quarter. The performance of CBF’s Hawk operation acquired in December 2010 was outstanding, with sales contribution of $83.5 million and EBIT of $15.6 million. Organic sales growth in the Brake & Friction segment was 33% on strong demand for global agriculture, construction and mining applications. Our Construction Materials and Interconnect Technologies segments also had impressive sales results with growth of 19% and 15%, respectively, during the second quarter 2011.”

Roberts continued, “During the second quarter 2011, our EBIT (Earnings before interest and income taxes) margin grew from 9.3% during the second quarter 2010 to 9.8%. This improvement was largely attributable to Brake & Friction and Interconnect Technologies, with both segments achieving EBIT margins above 16%. EBIT increased by 6% in the Construction Materials segment. Construction Materials was able to achieve EBIT margin of 13.2% despite a significant increase in raw material costs. While EBIT in the Transportation Products segment increased by 8%, margin was negatively impacted by production inefficiencies related to the start-up of the Jackson, TN, tire facility. All of our businesses have responded to significant raw material price increases this year by enacting pricing actions and pursuing savings through the Carlisle Operating System. However, increased raw material costs will continue to be a challenge through the remainder of 2011.”

Roberts added, “We continue to actively pursue acquisition opportunities that are consistent with our long-term goals of achieving 30% global sales and 15% operating margins. We are excited about our recently announced agreement to acquire PDT in Germany, a leading manufacturer serving the growing single-ply roofing market in Europe. This transaction should close in the third quarter.”

Roberts concluded by stating, “For the full year 2011, we are planning for sales growth in the mid-twenty percent range. Despite increasing raw material expense, we expect that EBIT margins will continue to trend upwards versus last year. Our efforts to improve cash flow year-to-date have been impacted by significant sales demand, particularly in our overseas markets. However, we remain committed to improving our cash flow and increasing inventory turns through the Carlisle Operating System. Our balance sheet remains strong and we are well-positioned to continue to pursue growth opportunities both organically and through bolt-on acquisitions.”

Segment Results

Carlisle Construction Materials (“CCM”): Second quarter 2011 net sales of $412.0 million increased by 19% from net sales of $345.8 million in 2010. EBIT increased 6% to $54.2 million from $51.3 million for the same period in the prior year. The increase in sales reflected continued strong demand for the Company’s reroofing applications as well as expansion of global sales initiatives. EBIT margin decreased from 14.8% in the second quarter 2010 to 13.2% for the second quarter 2011 due to higher raw material costs. The Company implemented price increases during the second quarter and further price increases are planned through the third quarter.

Carlisle Transportation Products (“CTP”): Second quarter 2011 net sales of $204.3 million increased by 6.4% compared to net sales of $192.0 million over the prior year period. The increase in sales primarily reflected higher selling prices offset by lower volume within the outdoor power equipment market. EBIT increased 8% to $6.8 million from $6.3 million for the same period in 2010. EBIT margin of 3.3% in the second quarter of 2011 was hampered by production inefficiencies from the ramp up of manufacturing at the Jackson, TN, tire plant. While higher selling prices at CTP offset the cost of raw material increases during the second quarter of 2011, higher raw material costs that are capitalized into inventory may negatively impact margin in future quarters.

Carlisle Brake & Friction (“CBF”): CBF net sales for the quarter increased from $26.2 million in 2010 to a record $119.4 million in 2011, with $83.5 million attributable to the Hawk acquisition. Organic sales growth was 33%. EBIT increased from $2.9 million in 2010 to $19.3 million in 2011, with $15.6 million attributable to Hawk. EBIT margin increased 5.1 percentage points from 11.1% to 16.2%. CBF’s brake and friction businesses continue to show robust demand, particularly in agricultural markets in Europe and construction and mining markets in the Asia Pacific region.

Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (“CIT”): Second quarter 2011 net sales of $71.7 million increased by 15% from net sales of $62.4 million for the same period of the prior year. EBIT nearly doubled to $11.7 million from $6.0 million for the same period in 2010. The increase in sales in the second quarter 2011 reflected sales growth in the aerospace market of 20% and in the military defense market of 8%. EBIT margin increased 6.7 percentage points to 16.3% as compared with 9.6% in the second quarter 2010. The increase in margin was attributable to organic sales growth, operating efficiencies from the Carlisle Operating System and savings from plant consolidations completed in 2010. These savings were partially offset by higher raw material costs for inputs such as silver and copper.

Carlisle FoodService Products (“CFS”): Second quarter 2011 net sales of $63.4 million were 3.6% higher compared to net sales of $61.2 million in 2010. EBIT in this segment decreased to $5.3 million from $6.3 million for the same period in 2010. The increase in revenue primarily reflected selling price increases implemented at the beginning of 2011 and higher demand in foodservice markets, offset by lower demand for healthcare related products. EBIT margin declined from 10.3% in the second quarter 2010 to 8.4% in the current quarter from higher raw material and freight costs which more than offset the increase in selling prices.

Corporate Expense

Corporate expense increased from $8.8 million in the second quarter of 2010 to $11.9 million for the second quarter 2011. The increase primarily reflects costs of $1.3 million for acquisition opportunities that were not realized, as well as foreign exchange gains recognized during the second quarter of 2010.

Interest Expense

The increase in interest expense from $1.8 million in the second quarter of 2010 to $4.9 million for the current quarter reflects higher outstanding debt levels in 2011. On December 9, 2010, the Company issued $250 million in 5.125% senior unsecured notes due 2020 to partially fund the Hawk acquisition.

Income Taxes

The 31.3% effective income tax rate for the second quarter of 2011 compared to a rate of 37.6% for the second quarter of 2010. The 2011 effective income tax rate was less than the prior year primarily due to favorable legislation passed after June 30, 2010 related to taxation of foreign earned income.

Net Income

Net income for the second quarter 2011 was $54.6 million, or $0.86 per diluted share, compared to net income of $38.6 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, for the second quarter 2010. 2011 net income was positively impacted by earnings from the Hawk acquisition, a lower effective tax rate, organic sales growth and efficiency gains from the Carlisle Operating System, partially offset by higher raw material costs.

Year-to-Date

Net sales of $1.56 billion for the first six months of 2011 increased 27%, compared with $1.23 billion for the same period in 2010. For the first six months of 2011, organic sales increased by 13% from the prior year period with growth by all business segments. The acquisition of Hawk in the Brake & Friction segment contributed $159.7 million, or 13%, in sales in the first six months of 2011 as compared to the same period of 2010.

Income from continuing operations for the first six months of 2011 of $88.6 million, or $1.40 per diluted share, increased 43% as compared with $61.9 million, or $0.99 per diluted share, for the same period in 2010. EBIT increased by 37% driven by contributions from the Hawk acquisition, higher organic sales and efficiencies from the Carlisle Operating System. Partially offsetting these impacts were higher raw materials costs during the first six months of 2011 versus the prior year period.

Net income for the first six months of 2011 was $88.0 million, or $1.39 per diluted share. Net income for the first six months of 2010 was $62.8 million, or $1.01 per diluted share.

Cash Flow

Cash flow provided by operating activities of $13.7 million for the first six months of 2011 compared with $20.5 million for the same period in 2010. Cash used for working capital and other assets and liabilities of $124.7 million for the first six months of 2011 primarily reflected an increase in receivables due to higher sales activity, as compared to cash used for working capital and other assets and liabilities of $72.0 million for the first six months of 2010. For the first six months of 2011, average working capital (defined as the average of the quarter end balances of receivables, plus inventory less accounts payable) as a percentage of annualized sales (defined as year-to-date net sales calculated on an annualized basis) was 21.7%, compared to a percentage of 21.4% for the six months ended June 30, 2010.

Capital expenditures were $33.8 million in the first six months of 2011 compared to capital expenditures of $31.6 million in the first six months of 2010. During the second quarter of 2011, the Company purchased certain trademark rights within the Transportation Products segment for $2.7 million.
