Terex Announces Second Quarter 2012 Results

Stocks in this article: TEX

Second Quarter Performance Review

In this press release, Terex refers to various GAAP (U.S. generally accepted accounting principles) and non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures being disclosed by other companies. Terex believes that this non-GAAP information is useful to understanding its operating results and the ongoing performance of its underlying businesses. Certain financial measures are shown in italics the first time referenced and are described in a Glossary at the end of this press release.

Terex Aerial Work Platforms : Net sales for the AWP segment for the second quarter of 2012 increased $120.0 million, or 24.7%, to $605.7 million versus the second quarter of 2011. The Company continued to see increased replacement-based demand in the North American rental channel for its aerial work platform products. The Australian market also continued to be a relatively strong contributor, due to natural resource based construction spending.

Income from operations in the second quarter of 2012 was $83.2 million, or 13.7% of net sales, as compared to income from operations of $27.4 million, or 5.6% of net sales, during the second quarter of 2011. Income from operations benefited primarily from improved price realization and greater manufacturing productivity due to higher volumes, partially offset by higher input costs.

Terex Construction : Net sales for the Construction segment for the second quarter of 2012 increased $29.1 million, or 8.1%, to $388.8 million versus the second quarter of 2011. Adjusting for the translation effect of foreign currency exchange rates, net sales increased approximately 14% from the comparable prior year period. Compact construction equipment as well as truck and component sales in developing markets, particularly Russia, China and Latin America were significant contributors to the year-over-year increase in sales. The Company continued to see weakness in demand for roadbuilding equipment.

Income from operations in the second quarter of 2012 was $9.6 million, or 2.5% of net sales, as compared to a loss from operations of $6.0 million, or 1.7% of net sales, during the second quarter of 2011. Operating results benefited from improved price realization as well as cost savings initiatives taken in 2011. These were partially offset by an unfavorable product mix.
