(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20020304/DAM053LOGO)

Revenue for the second quarter was $913 million, up 9% from the prior-year quarter. Adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations was a record $1.31, up 34% from $0.98 in the prior-year quarter. On a GAAP basis, earnings per share from continuing operations was a record $1.26, up 31% from $0.96 in the prior-year quarter.

"The company's strong business momentum continued in the second quarter, with revenue up 9% and total segment profit margin up 200 basis points to a record level of 11.6%," said Todd Bluedorn, Chairman and CEO of Lennox International. "In our Residential business, revenue was up 16% on strong double-digit growth in both new construction and replacement business, and margin expanded 370 basis points to 13.9%. Residential profit was up 58%. In our Commercial business, revenue and profit were up 4%, led by growth in the emergency replacement market and commercial services. Commercial margin increased 10 basis points to 15.1%. In Refrigeration, revenue was flat on the timing of national account business and soft economic conditions in Europe, but growth was strong in South America and Asia Pacific. Refrigeration profit was up 22% as margin expanded 220 basis points to 12.4%. Looking at 2013 for the company overall, we are raising our revenue and earnings guidance for the year. As markets continue to recover, the company is strategically well-positioned to drive our financial performance to new levels as we continue to execute on achieving our longer-term financial targets."

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

Revenue: Revenue for the second quarter was $913 million, up 9% from the prior-year quarter. Foreign exchange was neutral to revenue. Volume and price/mix were up from the prior-year quarter.

Gross Profit: Gross profit for the second quarter was $254 million, up 22% from the prior-year quarter. Gross margin was 27.8%, up 300 basis points from 24.8% in the prior-year quarter.

The annual adjustment for warranty reserves was favorable by $3 million in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the prior-year quarter.

Income from Continuing Operations: Adjusted income from continuing operations in the second quarter was $66.5 million, or $1.31 per share, compared to $50.6 million, or $0.98 per share, in the prior-year quarter. Adjusted earnings from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2013 excludes an after-tax charge of $1.6 million for restructuring activities, $0.5 million after-tax for the net change in unrealized losses on open future contracts, and an after-tax charge of $0.1 million for other items.  

On a GAAP basis, income from continuing operations for the second quarter was $64.3 million, or $1.26 per share, compared to $49.5 million, or $0.96 per share, in the prior-year quarter.
