Gorman-Rupp Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results And Announces Africa Expansion Plans

Stocks in this article: GRC

The Gorman-Rupp Company (NYSE MKT: GRC) reports financial results for the second quarter 2012.

Net sales during the second quarter 2012 were $92.6 million compared to $92.2 million during the same period in 2011. Net income was $7.6 million compared to $8.9 million in the second quarter 2011, a 14.6% decrease. Earnings per share were $0.36 and $0.42 for the respective periods, a 14.3% decrease.

Net sales for the six months ended June 30, 2012 increased 10.9% to $195.4 million compared to $176.2 million during the same period in 2011. Net income increased 11.3% to $17.8 million compared to $16.0 in the first six months of 2011. Earnings per share were $0.85 and $0.76 for the respective periods.

Sales were flat in the quarter compared to the second quarter 2011 and less than the record first quarter 2012. Strong sales increases occurred in the agricultural and fire protection markets and sales also rose in the petroleum and OEM markets. However, these increases were largely offset by decreased sales in the municipal market primarily due to decreased shipments of pumps supplied for domestic flood control projects and municipal funding constraints affecting sales of sewage pumps and systems, as well as reduced demand for pumps for natural gas drilling applications and from rental businesses. Encouragingly, international sales grew 38.0% in the second quarter 2012 compared to the same period last year, while domestic sales decreased 15.8% largely due to the aforementioned decline in municipal market sales.

The decrease in earnings for the quarter was principally driven by a less favorable product mix and increased healthcare expense of $0.02 per share.

The Company’s backlog of orders was $133.7 million at June 30, 2012 compared to $154.2 million a year ago and $155.5 million at December 31, 2011. The decrease from June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2011 was primarily due to record shipments during the first six months of 2012 combined with lower incoming orders for the construction and municipal markets.
