Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

MAYFIELD VILLAGE, Ohio, March 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Preformed Line Products Company (Nasdaq: PLPC) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and the full year 2010.

Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 was $6,006,000, or $1.13 per diluted share, compared to $10,731,000, or $1.99 per diluted share, for the comparable period in 2009.  Net income in 2009 includes a $9,087,000 gain realized from the acquisition of the Dulmison business and after tax costs related to the acquisition of $3,179,000.   Net sales in the fourth quarter of 2010 increased 34% to $93,318,000 compared to $69,812,000 in the fourth quarter of 2009.

Currency exchange rates had a positive impact on 2010 fourth quarter net income of $250,000 and on net sales of $1,766,000.

Net income for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $23,113,000, or $4.33 per diluted share, compared to $23,357,000, or $4.35 per diluted share in 2009.  Net sales for 2010 increased 32% to $338,305,000 compared to $257,206,000 in 2009.  

Currency exchange rates had a positive impact on 2010 net income of $1,114,000 and on net sales of $14,076,000.

Rob Ruhlman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "I am proud of our team for their worldwide dedication to the integration of the Dulmison business, which we acquired in December 2009.  Their success in implementing this acquisition was a major reason we accomplished record sales and net income from our operations in 2010.  Our fourth quarter earnings from operations were the strongest in the Company's history.  Going forward, we expect that the manufacturing leverage provided by this acquisition will assist in partially offsetting sharply increasing commodity pricing worldwide."
