Mueller Industries, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2012 Earnings

 
[24-July-2012]
 

MEMPHIS, Tennessee, July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Mueller Industries, Inc. (NYSE: MLI) announced today that Mueller's net income in the second quarter of 2012 was $17.9 million, or 47 cents per diluted share. This compares with net income of $22.3 million, or 59 cents per diluted share, for the same period of 2011. Net sales for the second quarter of 2012 were $594.1 million compared with $652.9 million in the second quarter of 2011. Of the decrease in net sales, approximately $51.6 million was attributable to lower copper and other raw material costs that impact the selling prices of our products. Copper prices decreased to an average of $3.55 per pound in the seco! nd quarter of 2012 versus $4.16 per pound in the same quarter of 2011. 

Second Quarter Financial and Operating Highlights

  • The Plumbing & Refrigeration segment posted operating earnings of $22.6 million on net sales of $331.7 million, which compares with prior year earnings of $24.8 million on net sales of $347.1 million. The decrease in earnings was due to slightly lower spreads.
  • The OEM segment posted operating earnings of $15.1 million during the second quarter of 2012 on net sales of $268.6 million, which compares with operating earnings of $18.8 million on net sales of $314.1 million for the same period in 2011.  Unit volumes decreased somewhat and spreads were slightly lower.
  • The Company redeemed its outstanding 6% Subordinated Debentures, due 2014 late in the second quarter.  In future periods, the redemption! will result in a savings of approximately $8.9 million in interest expense, or 15 cents per diluted share, on an annualized basis.
  • At quarter end, cash totaled $373.7 million equal to $9.77 per share and the current ratio was 3.9 to 1.  Total stockholders' equity was $904.3 million.

Business Outlook

Regarding the outlook, Greg Christopher, CEO said, "The long awaited housing recovery may have begun.  Mortgage rates are at historic lows, even as home prices have shown signs of firming. Also, in some markets it has become cheaper to buy than to rent. However, commercial construction activity has recently been uneven after showing gains earlier in the year. We believe that overall business conditions in the construction sector are improving, but at an irregular pace."

Mueller Industries, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of copper tube and fittings; brass and copper alloy rod, bar and shapes; aluminum and brass forgings; aluminum and copper impact extrusions; plastic fittings and valves; refrigeration valves and fittings; and fabricated tubular products. Mueller's operations are located throughout the United States and in Canada, Mexico, Great Britain, and China. Mueller's business is importantly linked to: (1) the construction of new homes; (2) the improvement and reconditioning of existing homes and structures; and (3) the commercial construction market that includes office buildings, factories, hotels, hospitals, etc.

MUELLER INDUSTRIES, INC.

RECONCILIATION OF NET INCOME AS REPORTED

TO NET INCOME BEFORE LIFO GAIN, INSURANCE SETTLEMENT AND LITIGATION SETTLEMENT

(In thousands, except per share data)


Earnings without the LIFO gain and insurance settlement in 2012 and without the litigation settlement in 2011 is a measurement not derived in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.  Excluding the LIFO gain, insurance settlement, and litigation settlement is useful as it measures the operating results that are the outcome of daily operating decisions made in the normal course of business.  The LIFO gain resulted from deferred recognition of a 2011 decrement and the insurance settlement was related to a 2009 claim at the Company's Ful! ton, Mississippi, copper tube mill.  The litigation settlement resulted from the collection of proceeds from the lawsuit against Peter Berkman, Jeffrey Berkman, and Homewerks Worldwide LLC, the results of which are not impacted by daily operations. Reconciliations of earnings without the LIFO gain, insurance settlement, and litigation settlement to net income as reported are as follows:
