Stock quotes in this article: PLOW

Highlights:

  • Company reported third quarter net sales of $52.0 million, in line with internal expectations
  • Pre-season order period (Q2 & Q3 combined) net sales increased 3.8% from the prior year period
  • Reported Adjusted EBITDA of $10.2 million for the third quarter
  • Board approves Q4 2013 dividend increase of 2.41% to $0.2125 per share

MILWAUKEE, Nov. 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Douglas Dynamics, Inc. (NYSE:PLOW), the North American leader in the design, manufacture and sale of snow and ice control equipment for light trucks, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Third Quarter Results

The Company's pre-season sales period is comprised of the second quarter and third quarters combined. As expected and as previously discussed, the 2013 pre-season order period shipment period was relatively evenly distributed between the second and third quarters, compared to the shipment split of approximately 65/35 for the 2012 pre-season order period.

In 2013, net sales were $52.0 million in the third quarter of 2013, compared to third quarter 2012 net sales of $37.8 million, an increase of 37.6%. The Company attributes the increase in sales primarily to the shift in timing of pre-season order shipments, which was driven primarily by the record number of new product launches, plus the addition of the business of TrynEx, Inc. which the Company acquired in May 2013.

James L. Janik, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The 2013 pre-season order period produced results in line with internal expectations. We are encouraged by key leading indicators such as sales of light trucks, which are trending in the right direction. We are seeing the initial signals of a return towards a more normal operating environment following the challenging market conditions we experienced from the fall and winter of 2011 through all of 2012, and, while our dealers still remain somewhat cautious, we are seeing slightly more optimism. Along with improving key market indicators, we've received strong response for our new product offerings and we continue to optimize the integration and execution of the TrynEx business, which we anticipate will further enhance our long-term growth and profitability."

Net income was $0.6 million, or $0.02 per diluted share based on weighted average shares of 22.1 million shares, in the third quarter of 2013 compared to net income of $2.3 million, or $0.10 per diluted share based on weighted average shares of 22.0 million shares, in the third quarter of 2012. Included in these results are $4.4 million of non-cash purchase accounting adjustments related to the TrynEx acquisition. These adjustments are primarily reflected in the increase in the selling, general and administrative expenses due to the $3.8 million in earn out compensation expenses recorded in conjunction with the acquisition. As previously stated, the acquisition is expected to be accretive to earnings per share on a full-year basis in 2014 and free cash flow positive on a stand-alone basis in 2014.
