CLARCOR Inc. (NYSE: CLC) reported its financial results for the third quarter of 2012. Diluted earnings per share declined 5% to $0.60 from $0.63 in the third quarter of 2011. Lower diluted earnings per share were driven by a 1% reduction in operating profit and a 3.0 percentage point increase in the effective income tax rate compared with last year’s third quarter. Net sales increased 1% based upon 5% higher sales at the company’s Industrial/Environmental Filtration segment—which also increased operating profit by 15% from the third quarter of 2011. Higher sales at this reporting segment were offset by lower sales in the Engine/Mobile Filtration and Packaging segments. Lower net sales in the Engine/Mobile Filtration segment were driven by lower domestic heavy-duty engine filter aftermarket sales and unfavorable changes in foreign currency exchange rates.

Changes in foreign currency exchange rates reduced consolidated net sales and operating profit by 2% in the third quarter of 2012 which lowered diluted earnings per share by $0.01 from the third quarter of 2011. For the first nine months of 2012, changes in foreign currency exchange rates reduced net sales and operating profit by 1% from the first nine months of 2011. These changes were driven primarily by the strengthening of the U.S. dollar against the Euro.
