Carlisle Companies Reports $1.15 Earnings Per Share From Continuing Operations For The Second Quarter 2014, A 16% Increase From The Prior Year

Carlisle Companies Incorporated (NYSE:CSL) reported $859.5 million in net sales from continuing operations for the second quarter 2014, an increase of 8.4% versus the prior year. The Company achieved organic sales growth of 8.0% during the quarter, led by double digit sales growth at Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CIT) and strong sales growth at Carlisle Construction Materials (CCM). The positive impact on net sales from fluctuations in foreign exchange was 0.4%.

Income from continuing operations in the second quarter 2014 rose 18% to $75.7 million, or $1.15 per diluted share. Income growth was primarily driven by higher sales volume and savings from the Carlisle Operating System, partially offset by higher product costs at CCM and reductions in selling price.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, net sales from continuing operations of $1.51 billion grew 6.2% over the prior year period, reflecting organic growth of 5.8% and the positive impact of fluctuations in foreign exchange of 0.4%. Income from continuing operations for the six months ended June 30, 2014 rose 3.2% to $112.1 million, or $1.70 per diluted share. Income from continuing operations for the prior year six month period ended June 30, 2013 includes a discrete tax benefit of $11.8 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, from the release of a deferred tax liability in connection with a tax election in a foreign jurisdiction.

All financial and percentage comparisons are made to the same quarter of the previous year, unless otherwise stated.


David A. Roberts, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We achieved solid organic sales growth of 8.0% during the quarter with each of our segments increasing sales. We leveraged our sales growth to a 12% EBIT (earnings before interest and income taxes) improvement driven by exceptional performance at CIT. Our EBIT margin grew 40 basis points to 14.2% for the second quarter. CIT’s performance was again a highlight with double digit sales growth and record EBIT margin of 21.0%. We continue to maintain a positive outlook for our sales and EBIT growth for the remainder of this year.

“At CCM, second quarter sales increased 9.2% on stronger demand for commercial roofing. CCM’s EBIT increased 3.7%. CCM’s EBIT was negatively impacted by lower selling price, higher product costs as well as start-up costs at our new PVC plant. The outlook for the commercial construction market for the remainder of the year remains positive and the company is well positioned with our new capacity to handle the expected increase in demand. High single digit sales growth is expected for the full year 2014 at CCM.

“CIT had another outstanding quarter with 11% sales growth and 53% EBIT growth, demonstrating exceptional leverage. Growth in the aerospace market remained strong during the second quarter on record demand for CIT’s IFEC (In-Flight Entertainment and Connectivity) applications and increased sales related to the Boeing 787 program. CIT’s EBIT margin rose 570 basis points to 21.0%. In addition to achieving high sales growth, CIT continues to deliver excellent results from the Carlisle Operating System.

“Carlisle Brake & Friction’s (CBF) sales increased 4.3% during the second quarter 2014. EBIT declined 13% due primarily to lower selling price. With continued year-over-year order increases, as well as a growing backlog, largely attributable to our customer expansion initiatives, we are planning for improving year-over-year sales growth for the balance of the year.

“Carlisle FoodService Products (CFS) achieved sales growth of 2.1% during the second quarter and EBIT growth of 15% as CFS continues to make progress on its performance improvement initiatives. CFS had strong growth in the healthcare market offset by lower sales in the foodservice product market. CFS’ 2014 EBIT includes a $1.1 million gain from the sale of a recently closed facility in The Netherlands.

“Our current cash on hand is $757 million. We continue to review opportunities to use our available liquidity to maximize shareholder value by acquiring companies that fit our long-term growth and margin profiles as well as returning capital to shareholders.”

Roberts concluded by stating, “For the full year 2014, we continue to plan for high single-digit percentage sales growth and EBIT leverage from our sales growth. CIT and CCM continue to be the primary drivers of this year’s sales growth as the outlook for the aerospace and commercial construction markets remain favorable. Capital expenditures for the year are expected to be approximately $117 million. Our balance sheet continues to be strong and we continue to be solidly positioned to pursue our long-term growth objectives.”

Segment Results for Second Quarter 2014

Carlisle Construction Materials (CCM): Net sales in the second quarter of 2014 of $535.6 million rose 9.2% reflecting higher demand for roofing systems and polyiso applications, partially offset by lower selling price. CCM’s EBIT margin declined 80 basis points to 15.1% in the quarter primarily due to lower selling price, higher product costs including freight and higher plant startup expense. CCM incurred startup expenses of $1.8 million during the quarter at its new PVC manufacturing plant in Greenville, IL, as compared to plant startup expenses in the second quarter of 2013 of $1.3 million.

Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CIT): Net sales of $162.2 million in the second quarter of 2014 rose 11.3% compared to the prior year. Sales in CIT’s aerospace, and test and measurement markets were up 13% and 31%, respectively. Sales to the military market were relatively level and sales to the industrial market were down 4%. CIT’s EBIT margin improved 570 basis points to a record 21.0%, primarily due to higher sales volume and savings from the Carlisle Operating System.

Carlisle Brake & Friction (CBF): Net sales in the second quarter of 2014 increased 4.3% to $97.6 million, reflecting 2.3% organic sales growth and a 2.0% positive impact on sales from fluctuations in foreign exchange rates. CBF’s organic sales growth of 2.3% primarily reflected higher sales volume partially offset by lower selling price. Sales into the construction and agriculture markets increased 11% and 2%, respectively. These increases were partially offset by a modest decline in sales to the mining market of 2%. CBF’s EBIT margin during the second quarter declined 210 basis points to 11.1%, primarily due to lower selling price. EBIT for the second quarter 2014 includes $0.4 million in restructuring costs related to the closure of its Akron, OH facility.

Carlisle FoodService Products (CFS): Net sales in the second quarter of 2014 grew 2.1% to $64.1 million. Sales into the healthcare market increased by 13% on higher demand for equipment. This was partially offset by 3% lower sales in the foodservice market, primarily reflecting lower international sales volume. CFS’ EBIT margin grew 150 basis points during the second quarter of 2014 to 13.1% primarily reflecting a gain of $1.1 million from the sale of exited property in Zevenaar, Netherlands.

Cash Flow

Cash flow provided from operations of $70.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was lower than the prior year period by $49.1 million primarily due to the disposition of the Transportation Products business on December 31, 2013. Cash flow provided by this divested business in the prior year period was concentrated in the first half of 2013 due to seasonality of the lawn and garden market.

For the second quarter 2014, average working capital (defined as the average of the quarter end balances, excluding current year acquisitions, for receivables, plus inventory less accounts payable) as a percentage of annualized sales (defined as year-to-date net sales, excluding current year acquisitions, calculated on an annualized basis) declined to 18.0%, from 19.5% in the prior year.

Capital expenditures during the first six months 2014 were $63.9 million versus $49.4 million in the prior year. Capital expenditures in 2014 include construction commencement for CIT’s new 190,000 sq. ft. facility in Nogales, Mexico. The Company expects full year capital expenditures will be approximately $117 million. During the second quarter 2014, the Company received $9.7 million in settlement of the finalized working capital adjustment from the Transportation Products divestiture.

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had $757 million of cash on hand and $600 million of borrowing availability under its credit facility.
