Griffon Corporation (“Griffon” or the “Company”) (NYSE: GFF) today reported results for the fiscal third quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Third quarter revenue totaled $510 million, increasing 6% compared to the prior year quarter. Telephonics and Home and Building Products (“HBP”) revenue increased 29% and 1%, respectively while Clopay Plastics (“Plastics”) revenue decreased 2%, all in comparison to the prior year quarter.

Segment adjusted EBITDA totaled $46.8 million compared to $51.8 million in the prior year quarter. Segment adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income, excluding interest income and expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, unallocated amounts (mainly corporate overhead), restructuring charges, acquisition-related expenses, and gains (losses) from pension settlement and debt extinguishment, as applicable.

Net income totaled $3.6 million, or $0.06 per share, compared to $9.0 million, or $0.16 per share, in the prior year quarter. Current quarter results included restructuring costs of $1.6 million ($1.0 million, net of tax, or $0.02 per share) and a discrete tax benefit of $1.5 million, or $0.03 per share. The prior year quarter included a discrete tax benefit of $1.6 million or $0.03 per share. Excluding these items from both periods, current quarter adjusted net income was $3.1 million, or $0.06 per share, compared to $7.4 million, or $0.13 per share, in the prior year quarter.

Ronald J. Kramer, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are performing well in what continues to be a challenging environment. Our performance was in-line with our expectations for the quarter and consistent with the outlook for the year. We expect to deliver enhanced operating performance as the global economy continues to recover.”
