Twin Disc, Inc. Announces Fiscal 2013 Second Quarter Financial Results

Twin Disc, Inc. (NASDAQ: TWIN) today reported financial results for the fiscal 2013 second quarter ended December 28, 2012.

Sales for the fiscal 2013 second quarter were $72,325,000, down from a record $82,941,000 for the same period last year. Year-to-date, sales were $141,118,000, compared to the record $164,271,000 for the fiscal 2012 first half. The decrease in sales was primarily the result of lower demand from customers in the pressure pumping sector of the North American oil and gas market. Offsetting weakness in this market was higher demand from customers in the North American and Asian commercial marine markets. Sales to customers serving the global mega yacht market remained at historical lows in the quarter, while demand remained steady for equipment used in the airport rescue and fire fighting (ARFF), and military markets.

Gross margin for the fiscal 2013 second quarter was 30.8 percent, compared to 35.6 percent in the fiscal 2012 second quarter and 28.2 percent in the fiscal 2013 first quarter. The anticipated year-over-year decline in the fiscal 2013 second quarter gross margin was the result of lower sales volumes and a less profitable mix of business. Year-to-date, gross margin was 29.6 percent, compared to 36.7 percent for the fiscal 2012 first half.

For the fiscal 2013 second quarter, marketing, engineering and administrative (ME&A) expenses, as a percentage of sales, were 23.2 percent, compared to 24.2 percent for the fiscal 2012 second quarter. ME&A expenses decreased $3,327,000 versus the same period last fiscal year. Stock-based compensation expense decreased $2,416,000 versus the prior year’s second fiscal quarter. In addition, the annual bonus expense decreased approximately $1,029,000 versus the prior year’s second fiscal quarter.

Year-to-date, ME&A expenses, as a percentage of sales, were 23.7 percent, compared to 21.9 percent for the fiscal 2012 first six months. For the fiscal 2013 first half, ME&A expenses decreased $2,616,000 versus the same period last fiscal year. Stock based compensation expense in the fiscal 2013 first half of $923,000 decreased $1,483,000 versus the same period a year ago. In addition, the annual bonus expense decreased approximately $1,870,000 versus the prior fiscal year’s first six months. The net remaining increase in ME&A expenses for the first half of fiscal 2013 primarily relates to increased research and development activities, wage inflation and additional headcount.
