Titan Machinery Inc. Announces Fiscal Third Quarter Ended October 31, 2012 Results

Acquisitions & New Store Openings

In fiscal 2013 to date, the Company completed seven acquisitions, consisting of six agriculture equipment dealership locations in the United States, five construction equipment dealership locations in the United States, one independent rental yard location in the United States, and seven agriculture equipment dealership locations in Europe. The Company also opened a new construction dealership in Windsor, Colorado and three new agriculture dealership locations in Romania. In addition, the Company contracted with CNH to distribute Case Construction equipment in Romania and Bulgaria and to distribute CaseIH Agricultural products in Ukraine.

Management Comments

David Meyer, Titan Machinery’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “In the third quarter, we generated solid top and bottom line growth and ended the quarter with a strong balance sheet. Our Agriculture segment continued to maintain strong sales activity, despite the impact of drought conditions on customer sentiment, and we also successfully managed our margins, leveraged expenses and improved our Agriculture pre-tax income by 30% compared to the prior year quarter. Our Construction business also experienced solid top line growth, but increased equipment inventory levels across this industry as well as our recent strategic acquisitions in large metro areas have pressured the bottom line results of this segment. Based on our year-to-date results and outlook for the final quarter of the year, we are raising our annual revenue range and reiterating our earnings per share outlook.”

Mr. Meyer continued, “As we enter the fourth quarter we expect our inventory management strategy will reduce new equipment inventory levels by the end of fiscal 2013. In addition, we expect to improve the construction segment of our business which will enable us to generate stronger operating results in the fourth quarter. We have executed on our organic and acquired growth strategy with strategic acquisitions, both in the United States and internationally. We recently expanded our domestic footprint into Arizona with the acquisition of Falcon Power. We are excited about our growing dealership network and are confident that our new locations will contribute to our future top and bottom line growth.”
