Modine Manufacturing Company (NYSE: MOD), a diversified global leader in thermal management technology and solutions, today reported its financial results for the first quarter ended June 30, 2013. Highlights and year-over-year comparisons include:

“We are off to a strong start to fiscal 2014, with adjusted earnings per share of $0.27, a $0.20 improvement from the prior year,” said Modine President and Chief Executive Officer, Thomas A.

Sales improved in the Europe, South America, Asia and Commercial Products (Building HVAC) segments. Gross profit increased $10.2 million, or 19.7 percent, largely due to higher sales volume and favorable material costs.
