"I am pleased that we delivered strong first quarter segment operating profit, earnings and cash flow performance in a mixed economic environment," said Chairman, CEO and President, Don Washkewicz. "Our order growth this quarter and near-term improvements in several key macroeconomic indicators support our revised guidance."

Segment Results

Diversified Industrial Segment: North American first quarter sales decreased 2.6 percent to $1.39 billion, and operating income was $234.2 million compared with $244.1 million in the same period a year ago.  International first quarter sales increased 1.8 percent to $1.27 billion, and operating income was $173.4 million compared with $156.6 million in the same period a year ago.

Aerospace Systems Segment: First quarter sales increased 4.9 percent to $567.5 million, and operating income was $57.3 million compared with $61.9 million in the same period a year ago.

Orders

Parker reported an increase of 5 percent in orders for the quarter ending September 30, 2013, compared with the same quarter a year ago.  The company reported the following orders by business: 

  • Orders increased 3 percent in the Diversified Industrial North America businesses compared with the same quarter a year ago.
  • Orders increased 5 percent in the Diversified Industrial International businesses compared with the same quarter a year ago.

Outlook

For the fiscal year ending June 30, 2014, the company has increased guidance for earnings from continuing operations to the range of $7.78 to $8.38 per diluted share.  Fiscal 2014 guidance includes expenses of $100 million or $0.47 per diluted share associated with its previously announced restructuring and an expected gain of $1.68 per diluted share associated with a joint venture agreement between Parker Aerospace and GE Aviation to be recorded in the quarter ending December 31, 2013.  A reconciliation of current guidance to previous guidance is included in the first quarter earnings call presentation, which has been posted to www.phstock.com.

Washkewicz added, "We are increasing our fiscal 2014 guidance to reflect higher than anticipated earnings in the first quarter and a larger than expected gain related to the GE Aviation joint venture, which will be recorded in our second quarter.  We are also moving forward with our restructuring activities having announced plant consolidations and other organizational improvements. These actions are designed to strengthen our global competitiveness."

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 Diversified Industrial North America and Diversified Industrial International, and the year-over-year 12-month rolling average of orders for the Aerospace Systems segment.

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 and similar transactions; the determination to undertake business realignment activities and the expected costs thereof and, if undertaken, the ability to complete such activities and realize the anticipated cost savings from such activities; the ability to realize anticipated benefits of the consolidation of the Climate and Industrial Controls Group; 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.
