Oshkosh Corporation Reports Fourth Fiscal Quarter And Fiscal 2012 Results

Stocks in this article: OSK

“Concrete mixer orders accelerated in the fourth quarter. We believe this is a strong sign that a housing recovery has commenced, which further supports our long-term outlook for our non-defense segments.

“At our analyst day on September 14, we presented a comprehensive overview of our business, our markets and our MOVE strategy. We also provided a roadmap to approximately double adjusted earnings from continuing operations from fiscal 2012 to $4.00 - $4.50 per share by fiscal 2015. This target demonstrates how we expect MOVE to deliver outstanding value for all shareholders. We’re confident that the Company is on track to achieve its targets and we look forward to updating shareholders on our progress,” concluded Szews.

Factors affecting fourth quarter results for the Company’s business segments included:

Access Equipment – Access equipment segment sales to external customers increased 15.6 percent to $716.0 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to the prior year fourth quarter. The increase was principally the result of higher unit volumes in North America and the realization of previously announced price increases. Including sales to the defense segment, access equipment segment sales increased 6.4 percent for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 compared with the prior year quarter as intersegment sales declined in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012.

In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, access equipment segment operating income increased 70.9 percent to $59.5 million, or 8.3 percent of sales, compared to prior year fourth quarter operating income of $34.8 million, or 5.2 percent of sales. The increase in operating results was primarily the result of higher volume and the realization of previously announced price increases. Results in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 included a high mix of telehandler sales.

Defense – Defense segment sales decreased 18.6 percent to $953.7 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 compared with the prior year fourth quarter. The decrease was primarily due to expected lower shipments under the Family of Heavy Tactical Vehicles and MRAP All-Terrain Vehicle programs, as well as lower aftermarket parts sales, offset in part by higher Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) unit sales.

In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, defense segment operating income decreased 12.6 percent to $62.0 million, or 6.5 percent of sales, compared to prior year fourth quarter operating income of $71.0 million, or 6.1 percent of sales. The decrease in operating income was largely due to lower sales volumes offset in part by a favorable year-end LIFO reserve adjustment and improved margins under the FMTV contract. The defense segment also benefitted in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 from favorable cost estimate changes upon the definitization of contracts.
