Gorman-Rupp Reports Third Quarter 2013 Results And Announces Stock Split And Cash Dividend Increase

The Gorman-Rupp Company (NYSE MKT: GRC) reports financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2013.

Net sales during the third quarter 2013 increased 10.4% to $101.2 million compared to $91.6 million during the same period in 2012. Domestic sales increased 18.3% or $10.7 million while international sales decreased 3.3% or $1.1 million. The increase in sales in our water end markets of $1.8 million was primarily due to increased shipments for the agriculture and fire protection markets of $5.6 million, partially offset by decreased shipments for Gulf Coast flood control projects of $3.9 million. Sales in our non-water end markets of $7.7 million increased primarily due to shipments for the OEM market of $4.3 million related to power generation equipment and military applications and for the industrial market of $2.2 million.

Net sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 were a record $300.1 million compared to $287.0 million during the same period in 2012, an increase of 4.5%. The increase in water end market sales of $11.5 million was primarily due to shipments for the fire and agricultural markets and for Gulf Coast flood control projects in the first half of 2013. This increase was partially offset by reduced construction market demand for pumps from rental businesses as compared to this market’s strong sales early last year. Increased international shipments for the petroleum market were the major contributor to the increase in our non-water market sales of $1.5 million.

Due to continuing lump-sum retirement payments, the Company recorded a GAAP-required $490,000 non-cash pension settlement charge during the third quarter of 2013 relating to its defined benefit pension plan. The Company has recorded a total of $3.5 million in non-cash pension settlement charges during the first nine months of 2013. These required charges were driven by exceeding the actuarial payments threshold relating to retirees electing to receive lump-sum distributions during 2013. A non-cash pension settlement charge was not required to be recognized in 2012 until the actuarial payments threshold was exceeded in the fourth quarter.
