Gorman-Rupp Reports Record Backlog And Record Third Quarter And Nine Months 2011 Revenue And Earnings

The Gorman-Rupp Company (NYSE Amex: GRC) reports net sales and earnings for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2011. Results for 2011 include the operations of National Pump Company acquired October 1, 2010.

Net sales during the quarter ended September 30, 2011 increased 22.0% to a third quarter record $90,215,000 compared to $73,953,000 during the same period in 2010. Net income increased 24.4% to a third quarter record $7,655,000 compared to $6,155,000 in the September 30, 2010 quarter. Earnings per share were $0.37 and $0.29 for the respective periods, an increase of 27.6%.

Net sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 increased 25.6% to a nine months record $266,448,000 compared to $212,119,000 during the same period in 2010. Net income increased 45.3% to a nine months record $23,699,000 compared to $16,308,000 in the first nine months of 2010. Earnings per share were $1.13 and $0.78 for the respective periods.

Sales during the quarter were positively impacted by the global economy compared to a year ago, plus the addition of National Pump Company. Primary increases were in sales to the industrial, agricultural and construction markets, partially offset by a reduction in fire protection market sales from strong levels last year.

Incoming orders resulted in a record backlog of $157.9 million at September 30, 2011, a 50.9% increase from a year ago and 47.0% higher than the backlog of $107.4 million at December 31, 2010. Current quarter orders included additional flood control pump projects which generally require longer lead times than other Company products.

The comparative increases in earnings for the quarter and nine months principally reflect operating leverage benefits from the higher volume of sales and continuation of a favorable mix of shipments across the Company’s diverse products and markets.

The Company continues to maintain a strong and liquid balance sheet with $27.8 million in cash and short-term investments. Additionally, working capital increased 17.7% from December 31, 2010 to $98.3 million at September 30, 2011. During the quarter, an additional $5.0 million of borrowings used to finance the acquisition of National Pump Company were re-paid.
