Gibraltar Reports Third Quarter Financial Results

Stocks in this article: ROCK

Gibraltar Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: ROCK), a leading manufacturer and distributor of products for building and industrial markets, today reported its financial results for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012. All financial metrics in this release reflect only the Company’s continuing operations unless otherwise noted.

Third Quarter Financial Results

Gibraltar’s net sales for the third quarter of 2012 were $205.5 million compared to $220.1 million for the third quarter of 2011. Net income was $7.0 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, compared with $7.4 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2011. The third-quarter 2012 results include after-tax special charges of $0.4 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, resulting primarily from exit activity costs related to business restructuring. Net income for the third quarter of 2011 included after-tax special charges totaling $0.4 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, primarily consisting of exit activity costs and acquisition costs. Excluding these items, third-quarter 2012 adjusted net income was $7.4 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, compared with $7.8 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2011.

Management Comments

“We continued to experience sluggish economic conditions and an uneven, regional recovery across North America, while Euro-zone economies showed continuing weakness in the third quarter,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Brian Lipke. “While these conditions are expected to improve, they did weigh on our third quarter results. Nonetheless, we continued to improve the operating efficiencies across the Company, including those associated with the consolidation of our West Coast operations.”

“Our top-line results this quarter reflected mixed conditions in the markets we serve,” said Henning Kornbrekke, President and Chief Operating Officer. “Slow residential repair and remodeling activity coupled with unusual weather patterns had a negative effect on the building industry, including roofing activity, which impacted our business in the third quarter. Growth in non-residential construction also moderated and weak economic conditions in Europe lowered demand for our filtration and other industrial products. While housing starts are rebounding and forecasts suggest a continued pickup in the new housing market, many of our residential products are ordered at later stages of a home’s completion. And while residential repair and remodeling activity remains relatively unchanged, consumers are expected to become more active in the market as economic uncertainty is lifted.”
