Parker Reports Fiscal 2013 Third Quarter Results and Increases Dividend - Third quarter diluted earnings per share $1.68

- Company maintains fiscal 2013 earnings guidance midpoint

- Board approves second consecutive quarterly dividend increase, totaling 10 percent this year

CLEVELAND, April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE: PH), the global leader in motion and control technologies, today reported results for the fiscal 2013 third quarter ended March 31, 2013 and announced a 5 percent increase in its quarterly cash dividend.  Fiscal 2013 third quarter sales were $3.30 billion compared with $3.39 billion in the prior year quarter. Acquisitions contributed 4 percent which was offset by a 6 percent reduction in organic sales. Net income was $256.6 million in the current quarter compared with $312.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2012.  Fiscal 2013 third quarter earnings per diluted share were $1.68 compared with $2.01 in the prior year quarter.

Cash flow from operations for the first nine months of fiscal 2013 was $718.8 million, or 7.5 percent of sales, compared with $1,006.5 million, or 10.3 percent of sales for the first nine months of fiscal 2012. Cash flow from operations for the first nine months of fiscal 2013 included a $225.6 million discretionary contribution to the company's pension plan. Excluding this contribution, cash flow from operations as a percent of sales was 9.9 percent for the first nine months of fiscal 2013.

The Board of Directors increased the company's regular quarterly cash dividend to 45 cents per share of common stock and declared a dividend payable June 7, 2013 to shareholders of record as of May 10, 2013. This represents a 5 percent increase over the previous quarterly dividend of 43 cents per common share and is the second consecutive increase this year. This is the company's 252nd consecutive quarterly dividend, resulting in a total distribution to shareholders of approximately $67 million.

"The fundamentals of our business remain very strong despite a mediocre global economic environment," said Chairman, CEO and President, Don Washkewicz.  "I am particularly pleased that we were able to deliver such strong total segment operating margins of 14 percent this quarter.  We also continue to drive high levels of operating cash flow, which has allowed us the flexibility to announce our second consecutive quarterly dividend increase this year. This puts our fiscal 2013 dividend increase at 10 percent.  We have now extended our long-standing annual dividend increase record to 57 consecutive fiscal years, which is among the top five longest running dividend-increase records in the S&P 500 index, and we have more than doubled our annual payout in the past five years."

Segment Results

In Industrial North America, third quarter sales decreased 2.4 percent to $1.28 billion, and operating income was $209.0 million compared with $227.0 million in the same period a year ago.  

In Industrial International, third quarter sales decreased 3.5 percent to $1.24 billion, and operating income was $152.3 million compared with $195.1 million in the same period a year ago. 

In Aerospace, third quarter sales increased 6.5 percent to $578.0 million, and operating income was $80.1 million compared with $65.9 million in the same period a year ago.

In Climate and Industrial Controls, third quarter sales decreased 18.0 percent to $203.9 million, and operating income was $21.3 million compared with $23.2 million in the same period a year ago.  These results reflect the impact of a business divestiture in the fiscal 2013 second quarter.

Orders

Parker reported a decrease of 7 percent in orders for the quarter ending March 31, 2013, compared with the same quarter a year ago.  The company reported the following orders: 

  • Orders declined 10 percent in Industrial North America compared with the same quarter a year ago.
  • Orders declined 7 percent in Industrial International compared with the same quarter a year ago.
  • Orders were unchanged in Aerospace on a rolling 12-month average basis.
  • Orders declined 1 percent in Climate and Industrial Controls compared with the same quarter a year ago.

Outlook

For the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013, the company has maintained the midpoint and narrowed the range of guidance for earnings from continuing operations to $6.25 to $6.65 per diluted share.  Fiscal 2013 guidance includes an expected year-over-year increase in domestic qualified pension expense of approximately $0.35 per diluted share due to accounting regulations which require the use of a lower discount rate based on current market conditions. 

Washkewicz added, "We are not anticipating any meaningful change in global economic conditions through the remainder of the fiscal year.  We will continue to take actions to drive operating cash flow while at the same time position ourselves for ongoing profitable growth and strong shareholder returns."

Notes on Orders
Orders provide near-term perspective on the company's outlook, particularly when viewed in the context of prior and future quarterly order rates. However, orders are not in themselves an indication of future performance. All comparisons are at constant currency exchange rates, with the prior year restated to the current-year rates. All exclude acquisitions until they can be reflected in both the numerator and denominator. Aerospace comparisons are rolling 12-month average computations. The total Parker orders number is derived from a weighted average of the year-over-year quarterly percent change in orders for Industrial North America, Industrial International, and Climate and Industrial Controls, and the year-over-year 12-month rolling average of orders for Aerospace.

Forward-Looking Statements
Forward-looking statements contained in this and other written and oral reports are made based on known events and circumstances at the time of release, and as such, are subject in the future to unforeseen uncertainties and risks. All statements regarding future performance, earnings projections, events or developments are forward-looking statements. It is possible that the future performance and earnings projections of the company, including its individual segments, may differ materially from current expectations, depending on economic conditions within its mobile, industrial and aerospace markets, and the company's ability to maintain and achieve anticipated benefits associated with announced realignment activities, strategic initiatives to improve operating margins, actions taken to combat the effects of the current economic environment, and growth, innovation and global diversification initiatives. A change in the economic conditions in individual markets may have a particularly volatile effect on segment performance. Among other factors which may affect future performance are: changes in business relationships with and purchases by or from major customers, suppliers or distributors, including delays or cancellations in shipments, disputes regarding contract terms or significant changes in financial condition, changes in contract cost and revenue estimates for new development programs and changes in product mix; ability to identify acceptable strategic acquisition targets; uncertainties surrounding timing, successful completion or integration of acquisitions; ability to realize anticipated cost savings from business realignment activities; threats associated with and efforts to combat terrorism; uncertainties surrounding the ultimate resolution of outstanding legal proceedings, including the outcome of any appeals; competitive market conditions and resulting effects on sales and pricing; increases in raw material costs that cannot be recovered in product pricing; the company's ability to manage costs related to insurance and employee retirement and health care benefits; and global economic factors, including manufacturing activity, air travel trends, currency exchange rates, difficulties entering new markets and general economic conditions such as inflation, deflation, interest rates and credit availability. The company makes these statements as of the date of this disclosure, and undertakes no obligation to update them unless otherwise required by law.
