Nordson's CEO Discusses F3Q2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

During this conference call forward-looking statement maybe made regarding our future performance based on Nordson’s current expectations. These statements may involve a number of risks, uncertainties, and other factors as discussed in the company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission that could cause actual results to differ. After our remarks we will have a question-and-answer session.

I’d now like to turn the call over to Mike for an overview of our 2012 third quarter results and a bit about Nordson’s future outlook. Please go ahead, Mike.

Mike Hilton

Thank you, Jim, and good morning, everyone. And thank you for attending Nordson’s third quarter 2012 conference call. In addition to our comments on the third quarter, we will also provide some perspective on our outlook for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. Let me begin by thanking Nordson’s global team for continuing to serve our customers at the highest level and for delivering an outstanding quarter.

Third quarter sales, operating profit, net income and diluted earnings per share were records levels for any quarter in Nordson’s history, where strong organic sales volume at all segments and geographies help drive this record performance. Our customers continue to respond to our value proposition of best-in-class technology, applications expertise and global support.

Acquisitions did add 10 percentage points of growth in the quarter. These acquisitions include Verbruggen and Value Plastics, both completed in fiscal year 2011, and the EDI and Xaloy acquisitions completed during this year’s third quarter.

These two recent acquisitions along with Verbruggen provide Nordson’s with a very strong platform in global plastics processing, a space we think has good growth and profitability characteristics. Integration efforts are on track and we are very excited about the opportunities for these businesses going forward and the new team members that have come with them.
