Polaris Reports Record 2012 Fourth Quarter And Full Year Results; Fourth Quarter EPS Increased 38% To $1.24 With Sales Growth Of 15%

Polaris Industries Inc. (NYSE: PII) reported record fourth quarter net income of $1.24 per diluted share for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, up 38 percent from the prior year’s fourth quarter net income of $0.90 per diluted share. Reported net income was $88.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, up 38 percent from the previous fourth quarter’s net income of $63.9 million. Sales for the fourth quarter 2012 totaled a record $900.6 million, an increase of 15 percent over last year’s fourth quarter sales of $782.0 million.

For the full year ended December 31, 2012, Polaris reported record net income of $4.40 per diluted share, a 38% increase compared to $3.20 per diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2011. Reported net income was $312.3 million for the full year 2012, up 37 percent from the previous year’s net income of $227.6 million. Sales for the full year 2012 totaled a record $3,209.8 million, an increase of 21 percent compared to sales of $2,656.9 million for the full year 2011.

“Our outstanding fourth quarter results concluded another successful year for Polaris, from both financial and strategic perspectives. In 2012, Polaris exceeded $3 billion in sales for the first time and operational improvements drove net income margin above 9.7%, even as we continued to invest in numerous diversification and growth opportunities,” commented Scott Wine, Polaris’ Chief Executive Officer.

“We expect 2013 to be another year of profitable growth and margin expansion, although we remain wary of the fragility of the global economy, particularly in Europe, where we project our business will be down slightly. Our product development and investment activity will remain high, as indicated by our decision to approve the construction of a new European plant that will provide significant future cost reduction and growth opportunities. Our aggressive posture will be balanced by consistent and prudent evaluation and preparation for risks that may arise. Operational flexibility and aggressive cost control are core strengths of Polaris, and we will leverage our excellence in executing those disciplines to overcome any obstacles to continued profitable growth.”
