Gorman-Rupp Reports Record First Quarter 2014 Revenue

The Gorman-Rupp Company (NYSE MKT: GRC), a leading international designer, manufacturer and marketer of pumps and pump systems, reports financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Net sales during the first quarter of 2014 increased 19.0% to a record $110.1 million compared to $92.5 million during the same period in 2013. Domestic sales increased 28.0% or $15.7 million and international sales increased 5.3% or $1.9 million. Sales in water end markets increased $12.0 million and sales in non-water end markets increased $5.6 million during the first quarter.

The increase in water end market sales was due about equally to increases in shipments of $4.1 million in the construction market principally for pumps for rental businesses and for oil and gas drilling and fracking within North America, $4.1 million in the fire market due to increased domestic commercial construction spending, and $4.3 million in the municipal market driven by large volume pumps related to wastewater and water supply. Sales increased $5.6 million in the non-water markets primarily due to increased shipments for the OEM market related to power generation equipment and pumps for military applications.

Gross profit was a record $27.6 million for the first quarter of 2014, resulting in gross margin of 25.0% compared to 23.0% in the same period in 2013. The increase in gross margin was principally due to increased sales and sales mix changes during the quarter. Operating income was $14.7 million, resulting in operating margin of 13.3% in the first quarter of 2014 compared to 8.9% in the same period in 2013. The gross margin and operating margin for the first quarter of 2013 were reduced by 90 and 150 basis points, respectively, due to a non-cash pension settlement charge which did not recur in the first quarter of 2014.

Net income was $10.0 million during the first quarter of 2014 compared to $5.8 million in the first quarter of 2013 and earnings per share were $0.38 and $0.22 for the respective periods. Earnings per share for the first quarter of 2013 included a reduction of $0.04 due to a non-cash pension settlement charge.
