Cintas Corporation Announces Fiscal 2013 Third Quarter Results

Stocks in this article: CTAS

The effective tax rate for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 and fiscal 2012 was 36.1% and 37.0%, respectively. The effective tax rate can fluctuate from quarter to quarter based on specific discrete items. We expect the effective tax rate for the entire 2013 fiscal year to be approximately 37.0%, which would be slightly higher than last year’s effective tax rate of 36.8%.

Mr. Farmer concluded, “Based on our third quarter results, we are updating our fiscal 2013 guidance with revenue in the range of $4.3 billion to $4.325 billion and EPS to be in the range of $2.50 to $2.54. This guidance assumes no deterioration in the U.S. economy and does not consider any additional share buybacks.”
