Douglas Dynamics Announces Second Quarter 2010 Results

  • Net sales increased 11.1% from Q2 FY'09 to $66.2 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 36.4% from Q2 FY'09 to $21.7 million
  • Adjusted earnings per diluted share of $0.49

MILWAUKEE, Aug. 10, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Douglas Dynamics, Inc. (NYSE:PLOW), the North American leader in the design, manufacture and sale of snow and ice control equipment for light trucks, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2010 and provided its outlook for 2010.

Second Quarter Results

Douglas Dynamics' pre-season sales period is comprised of the second and third quarters combined. To encourage distributors to receive shipments prior to the peak fourth quarter retail selling season, the Company offers promotional financial and freight terms to distributors that place orders during the second quarter. These orders are then shipped during the second and third quarters. The timing of these shipments between the second and third quarters can vary year to year based upon a number of factors, including distributor inventory levels and space availability. For 2010, pre-season orders have shifted from traditional patterns to be more heavily weighted towards the second quarter versus the third quarter.

Net sales were $66.2 million in the second quarter of 2010, representing an 11.1% increase from the corresponding period in 2009. This increase in net sales reflects stronger total pre-season orders compared to the prior year and the timing of pre-season shipments shifting toward the second quarter versus the third quarter. This increase in equipment sales was partially offset by an expected decrease in parts and accessories sales as distributors anticipate end users shifting their investments from repairing existing equipment towards purchasing new equipment.
