Snap-on Announces Second Quarter 2013 Results

Segment Results

Commercial & Industrial Group segment sales of $266.2 million in the quarter decreased $17.2 million, or 6.1%, from 2012 levels primarily due to lower sales to the military and in the segment’s European-based hand tools business. Excluding $2.1 million of unfavorable foreign currency translation, organic sales in the quarter decreased 5.4%.

Operating earnings of $33.6 million in the period increased $0.8 million from 2012 levels, and the operating margin (operating earnings as a percentage of segment sales) of 12.6% improved from 11.6% a year ago.

Snap-on Tools Group segment sales of $346.2 million in the quarter rose $21.2 million, or 6.5%, from 2012 levels, reflecting sales gains across both the company’s U.S. and international franchise operations. Excluding $1.5 million of unfavorable foreign currency translation, organic sales increased 7.0%.

Operating earnings of $54.5 million in the period increased $10.0 million from 2012 levels and the operating margin of 15.7% compared with 13.7% a year ago. Operating earnings in 2013 includes $0.2 million of restructuring costs; operating earnings in the second quarter of 2012 included $6.9 million of restructuring costs largely for a pension plan settlement. Operating earnings in 2013 also includes $1.8 million of higher stock-based and mark-to-market expenses associated with the company’s franchisee stock purchase plan.

Repair Systems & Information Group segment sales of $246.2 million in the quarter increased $18.8 million, or 8.3%, from 2012 levels. Excluding $8.5 million of sales from the Challenger acquisition and $0.8 million of unfavorable foreign currency translation, organic sales in the quarter rose 4.9%, primarily due to higher sales to Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) dealerships and gains in sales of diagnostics and repair information products to independent repair shop owners and managers.
