The Middleby Corporation Reports Second Quarter Results

Stocks in this article: MIDD

Mr. Bassoul continued, “We continue to make progress related to integration initiatives at Viking. We realized continued improvement in the EBITDA margin, which expanded to 15% in the second quarter. We anticipate continued profit improvement in the second half of 2013 and remain confident in our 20% expectation of EBITDA margins for this business by the end of next year.”

Mr. Bassoul added, “At Viking, we also continued to make significant progress with initiatives to assure the highest levels of product quality and customer service. In conjunction with these efforts, we completed the acquisition of several Viking former U.S. distributors, which account for approximately 40% of the domestic revenues. These acquisitions will allow us to control and enhance critical aspects of the sales, marketing and customer support processes. We expect to finalize our reorganization of the domestic distribution channels in the second half of the 2013.”

Mr. Bassoul further commented, “We are also very excited about the significant pipeline of new Viking products and product enhancements scheduled for introduction in the second half of this year. This includes the introduction of several new products and technologies adopted from our Commercial Foodservice business, such as a new high speed oven developed in conjunction with Turbochef. We have also focused heavily on development of products specifically for the international markets, obtaining international certifications for approximately one-hundred products that we now can offer to markets outside of the U.S.”
