Gorman-Rupp Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results

Stock quotes in this article: GRC

The Gorman-Rupp Company (NYSE MKT: GRC) reports financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2013.

Net sales during the second quarter 2013 increased 14.9% to a new quarterly record of $106.4 million compared to $92.6 million during the same period in 2012. Domestic sales increased 28.4% or $15.4 million while international sales decreased 4.0% or $1.6 million. The increase in sales in our water end markets of $10.2 million was primarily due to increased shipments for Gulf Coast flood control projects and for the agriculture market. Increased shipments for the industrial and OEM markets of $2.9 million were major contributors to the increase in our non-water end market sales.

Net sales for the six months ended June 30, 2013 were a record $198.9 million compared to $195.4 million during the same period in 2012, an increase of 1.8%. The increase in water end market sales of $9.1 million was primarily due to increased shipments for Gulf Coast flood control projects and for the fire and agriculture markets. This increase was partially offset by reduced construction market demand for pumps from rental businesses as compared to the strong sales in the first six months of 2012. The decrease in non-water market sales of $5.7 million was primarily in the OEM market due to reduced shipments related to power generation equipment.

Due to continued increased lump-sum retirement payments, the Company recorded a GAAP-required $1.6 million non-cash pension settlement charge during the second quarter of 2013 relating to its defined benefit pension plan which negatively impacted margins and earnings as detailed below. The Company has recorded $3.0 million in non-cash pension settlement charges during the first six months of 2013. These required charges were driven by exceeding the actuarial payments threshold relating to retirees receiving lump-sum distributions during 2013. Therefore, it is likely that margins and earnings will continue to be negatively impacted as a result of lump-sum retirement payments during the remainder of the year, although we expect in lesser amounts. A non-cash pension settlement charge was not required to be recognized in 2012 until the fourth quarter when the actuarial payments threshold was exceeded.
