CLARCOR Inc. (NYSE: CLC) reported that its diluted earnings per share grew 2% from the second quarter of 2011 to a record second quarter high of $0.65. Higher diluted earnings per share were achieved despite a 1% reduction in net sales as operating margin expanded 0.3 percentage points from last year’s second quarter to 17.2%. Second quarter earnings were impacted by lower operating results at the company’s Packaging segment where net sales declined $4.2 million, or 18%, and operating profit declined $1.3 million, or 42%, from the second quarter of 2011. These Packaging segment results negatively influenced consolidated diluted earnings per share by approximately $0.02 compared with last year’s second quarter.

Changes in average foreign currency exchange rates reduced net sales by $3.9 million, or 1%, and operating profit by $0.8 million, or 2%, in the second quarter of 2012 compared with last year’s second quarter. For the first six months of 2012, changes in average foreign currency exchange rates reduced net sales by $4.7 million, or 1%, and operating profit by $0.8 million, or 1%, from the first six months of 2011.
