CLARCOR Inc. (NYSE: CLC) reported that third quarter 2013 diluted earnings per share of $0.57 declined 5% from $0.60 in the third quarter of 2012. However, third quarter 2013 diluted earnings per share were impacted by two non-cash charges, a $4.6 million loss on disposal of equipment and a $3.1 million charge to account for a final pension obligation settlement. These two items reduced diluted earnings per share by approximately $0.10 in the third quarter of 2013. Third quarter net sales increased 1% from last year’s third quarter, including a 2% increase at the Engine/Mobile Filtration segment and a 1% increase at the Industrial/ Environmental Filtration segment, partially offset by a 5% reduction at the Packaging segment. A lower effective tax rate in the third quarter of 2013 favorably impacted diluted earnings per share by approximately $0.02 from the third quarter of 2012.

Changes in average foreign currency exchange rates reduced net sales by $0.3 million and operating profit by $0.2 million, each less than 1%, in the third quarter of 2013 compared with last year’s third quarter. For the first nine months of 2013, changes in average foreign currency exchange rates lowered net sales by $0.7 million and operating profit by $0.4 million, also each less than 1%, from the first nine months of 2012.
