For the year ended December 31, 2012, DXP reported net income of $51.0 million, with fully diluted EPS of $3.35 compared to year end December 31, 2011 net income of $31.4 million, with EPS of $2.08 for an improvement of $19.5 million in net income or 62.1% per fully diluted share.

For the year ended December 31, 2012, DXP reported a sales increase of $290.1 million, or 35.9% to approximately $1,097.1 million from $807.0 million for 2011.

David R. Little, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer remarked, “We achieved outstanding results in 2012 and accomplished our goals, achieving sales of $1.1 billion and EBITDA margins of 9.9%. I would like to thank our ‘DXPeople’, as they continue to be the experts in the market while making DXP a fun place to work. We again showed we can deliver consistent organic results in a see-saw market. The execution of our strategy led to a solid year of top-line sales growth, year-over-year margin expansion, solid earnings improvement, accelerated acquisition activity and strong cash flow performance.

“All three segments grew revenue and profits. Innovative Pumping Solutions lead the way again with 58% sales growth and 20% operating income margins. DXP Service Centers experienced 39% sales growth with 11% operating income margins. DXP Supply Chain Services finished with 8% sales growth and a significant improvement in operating income margins to 8%. We grew EBITDA margins from 8.1% in 2011 to 9.9% and we feel there is still room for additional margin improvement as we continue to find ways to instill pricing discipline. We completed seven strategic acquisitions in 2012, including establishing a meaningful presence in Canada. Total employees increased from approximately 2,100 to 2,817.
