Stocks in this article: SNA

Snap-on Incorporated (NYSE: SNA), a leading global innovator, manufacturer and marketer of tools, equipment, diagnostics, repair information and systems solutions for professional users performing critical tasks, today announced operating results for the third quarter of 2013.

  • Sales of $753.2 million increased $41.6 million, or 5.8%, from 2012 levels; excluding $15.6 million of sales from the May 2013 acquisition of Challenger Lifts, Inc. (“Challenger”) and $7.3 million of unfavorable foreign currency translation, organic sales increased 4.7%.
  • Operating earnings before financial services of $111.3 million, or 14.8% of sales, compares with $96.2 million, or 13.5% of sales, last year.
  • Financial services operating earnings of $31.6 million increased $3.7 million from 2012 levels.
  • Consolidated operating earnings of $142.9 million, or 17.9% of revenues (net sales plus financial services revenue), increased from $124.1 million, or 16.5% of revenues, last year.
  • Net earnings of $84.6 million, or $1.43 per diluted share, compares with net earnings of $74.1 million, or $1.26 per diluted share, a year ago.

“We’re encouraged by our third quarter results, which reflect a 5.8% increase in net sales and a 130 basis point improvement in operating margin before financial services. We believe these results demonstrate our continued progress along our defined runways for coherent growth and underscore the benefits of our Snap-on Value Creation processes of safety, quality, customer connection, innovation and rapid continuous improvement,” said Nick Pinchuk, Snap-on chairman and chief executive officer. “In the third quarter, we were also the only company to receive three MOTOR Magazine Top 20 Tool Awards for 2013, continuing a multi-year streak recognizing our capabilities in connecting with our professional customers and in translating that insight into winning innovation. Finally, these results and achievements reflect extraordinary effort and dedication across the company and I thank our franchisees and associates worldwide for their significant contributions and commitment.”

Segment Results

Commercial & Industrial Group segment sales of $275.2 million in the quarter decreased $5.2 million, or 1.9%, from 2012 levels. Excluding $2.7 million of unfavorable foreign currency translation, organic sales in the quarter decreased $2.5 million, or 0.9%, primarily due to continued lower sales to the military coupled with a slight sales decline in the segment’s European-based hand tools business.

Operating earnings of $36.0 million in the period increased $2.6 million from 2012 levels, and the operating margin (operating earnings as a percentage of segment sales) of 13.1% improved from 11.9% a year ago.
