Carlisle Companies Incorporated (NYSE:CSL) reported $996.1 million in net sales from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2013, an increase of 1.2% versus the prior year.

The negative impact on net sales from fluctuations in foreign exchange was negligible.
Reported income from continuing operations was $8.2 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, in the second quarter 2013. Excluding the non-cash after-tax goodwill impairment charge of $66.1 million at Carlisle Transportation Products, income from continuing operations was $74.3 million, or $1.14 per diluted share, a 17% decline from income of $89.4 million, or $1.39 per diluted share, in 2012. Income from continuing operations, excluding the impairment charge, was lower in the second quarter of 2013 versus the prior year due to lower sales volume in some of our key industrial markets and negative selling price realization within Carlisle Construction Materials.
