First Quarter Highlights

  • Sales of $1.52 billion increased 4 percent compared to sales of $1.47 billion in the year ago quarter.  Major items affecting current quarter sales comparisons versus the prior year include:

– $14.6 million from the unfavorable effects of copper pricing 

– $12.2 million of unfavorable foreign exchange effects

Exclusive of the above items, sales increased by 5 percent organically.


  • First quarter operating income of $86.7 million improved by 12 percent compared to $77.5 million in the year ago quarter. The operating profit in the prior year quarter included a European restructuring charge of $5.3 million. Excluding this charge, operating income increased by 5 percent.
  • Operating margin in the current quarter was 5.7 percent compared to 5.3 percent in the year ago quarter. Excluding the prior year restructuring charge outlined above, operating margin improvement in the current year period would have been 10 basis points.
  • Other, net expense in the current quarter of $3.1 million increased by $3.8 million from Other, net income of $0.7 million in the year ago quarter.  The current quarter includes interest and penalties of $1.7 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, for tax liabilities related to prior years.  Foreign exchange losses account for the majority of the remaining increase.
  • During the current quarter, the company recorded a tax benefit of $9.7 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, primarily related to the reversal of deferred income tax valuation allowances in certain foreign jurisdictions. As a result, the tax rate in the current quarter was 22.3 percent. Excluding the impact of the tax benefit, the current quarter tax rate was 35.8 percent. This compares to a tax rate of 37.5 percent in the year ago quarter.
  • Net income from continuing operations of $55.6 million, or $1.62 per diluted share, improved by 43 percent compared to $40.9 million, or $1.13 per share, reported in the year ago quarter. Excluding the impact of the tax benefit and the interest and penalties related to prior years’ tax liabilities (together the "Net Tax Benefit") in the current quarter and the restructuring charge in the prior year quarter, net income from continuing operations in the first quarter was $47.0 million or $1.37 per diluted share compared to $44.2 million or $1.22 per diluted shared in the prior year quarter. With these adjustments, net income increased by 6 percent and earnings per diluted share improved by 12 percent over the prior year quarter.  
  • Cash flow used in operations, including discontinued operations, was $65 million as compared to a usage of $6 million in the year ago quarter. The higher cash usage in the quarter was primarily due to a change in working capital requirements compared to the prior year quarter, largely related to delays in project shipments.

"Our strategic growth initiatives combined with strong day-to-day execution continue to drive our success in each of our end markets around the world. As expected, these efforts have once again helped bolster our sales performance in Emerging Markets, which delivered the highest year-on-year organic sales growth rate among our geographic reporting segments at 7 percent," continued Eck. "Within our end markets, the OEM Supply business delivered the highest sales growth rate with 12 percent improvement year-on-year. Despite a slowdown in billings due to project delays in both cabling businesses, Electrical Wire & Cable and Enterprise Cabling delivered 6 percent and 3 percent organic sales growth, respectively."
