McGrath RentCorp Announces Results For Second Quarter 2012

McGrath RentCorp (NASDAQ:MGRC) (the “Company”), a diversified business to business rental company, today announced revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, of $83.8 million, an increase of 5%, compared to $79.5 million in the second quarter of 2011. The Company reported net income of $10.5 million, or $0.42 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2012, compared to net income of $11.4 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2011.

Dennis Kakures, President and CEO of McGrath RentCorp, made the following comments regarding these results and future expectations:

“Although Company-wide rental revenues increased 6% from a year ago, we had a disappointing 9% drop in EPS for the quarter, primarily related to lower than projected rental revenues for our tank and box rental business. While Adler rental revenues grew over last year’s second quarter by 16%, they fell well below our expectations. We experienced more equipment returns in the second quarter in the Northeast related to the reduction in dry natural gas production, as well as slower than anticipated redeployment of earlier off-rent gas field assets. Additionally, although our electronics and modular rental bookings and billings were in line with our expectations for the quarter, we experienced lower used and new equipment sales, and related gross profit, in both businesses from a year ago negatively impacting EPS. Finally, also contributing to the decline in year over year EPS were higher SG&A costs, primarily related to employee, IT software and hardware, and facilities infrastructure costs, as well as higher interest expense, and a higher diluted share count. It’s important to note that a significant amount of the increased SG&A costs relate to staffing and facility infrastructure supporting rental revenue growth for both Adler Tank Rentals and Mobile Modular Portable Storage. Overall, our SG&A spend for the quarter was in line with our 2012 plans.
