Layne Christensen Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Financial Results

Stocks in this article: LAYN

Other income, net for Q2 FY2013, consisted primarily of gains of $0.9 million on the sale of equipment, an adjustment of $0.5 million for the expected earnout liability on a prior acquisition, and foreign exchange gains of $0.4 million.

Income tax expense of $3.6 million (an effective rate of 414.5%) was recorded for Q2 FY2013, compared to $7.9 million (an effective rate of 42.0%) for the same period last year. The current effective tax rate was adversely impacted by the Diberil loss recognized during the second quarter upon which no income tax benefit was recorded. Exclusive of the Diberil loss, the Company's effective tax rate would have been 42.4% for Q2 FY2013. The effective rate in excess of the statutory federal rate for the period was due primarily to the impact of nondeductible expenses and the tax treatment of certain foreign operations.
