Invacare Corporation Announces Financial Results For The Quarter And Year Ended December 31, 2012

For the year ended December 31, 2012, Asia/Pacific net sales decreased 22.3% to $67.0 million versus $86.2 million last year. Organic net sales decreased 23.0%, caused by net sales declines in all three businesses in the segment. The year-to-date loss before income taxes was $6.8 million, excluding restructuring charges of $5.0 million, as compared to earnings before income taxes of $5.0 million last year, excluding restructuring charges of $0.2 million and goodwill and intangible impairment charges of $39.9 million. The decrease in earnings before income taxes is primarily attributable to the reduction in net sales volumes for each of the businesses in this segment.

DISCONTINUED OPERATION - INVACARE SUPPLY GROUP (ISG)

ISG net sales for the fourth quarter increased 26.0% to $95.2 million compared to $75.5 million for the same period last year. The net sales increase occurred in diabetic, enterals, incontinence and urological product categories. Earnings before income taxes for the fourth quarter were $5.5 million as compared to $5.0 million last year, excluding restructuring charges of $0.3 million, as volume increases were partially offset by lower gross margins and increased associate costs.

For the year ended December 31, 2012, ISG net sales increased 14.1% to $341.6 million compared to $299.5 million for the same period last year. The net sales increase occurred in diabetic, incontinence, urological, ostomy and enteral products. Earnings before income taxes for the year ended December 31, 2012 were $16.2 million as compared to $15.1 million last year, excluding restructuring charges of $0.3 million, as volume increases were partially offset by higher freight costs and increased bad debt expense.

Federal tax expense amounts for the discontinued operation ISG include a federal intraperiod tax allocation of $2.0 million and $5.8 million for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012, respectively, which increased tax expense for ISG offset by an equal tax benefit allocated to continuing operations. The amounts offset for the combined net earnings and net earnings per share of the Company on a GAAP basis.
