By Business Wire News

CHARLOTTE, N.C.

Carlisle Companies Incorporated (NYSE:CSL) reported net sales from continuing operations of $984.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2015, a 15% increase from $859.5 million in the second quarter 2014. Net sales from the acquisition of the Finishing Brands business, which constitutes the Carlisle Fluid Technologies (CFT) segment, contributed 7.2% to net sales in the second quarter. Net sales from the acquisition of LHi Technology (LHi), reported in the Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CIT) segment, contributed 3.2% to net sales. Organic net sales (defined as net sales excluding sales from acquisitions within the last twelve months, as well as the impact of changes in foreign exchange rates versus the U.S. Dollar) growth was 6.2%. Fluctuations from foreign exchange had a negative impact to net sales of 2.0%.

Income from continuing operations in the second quarter 2015 increased 25% to $94.8 million, compared with $75.7 million in the second quarter 2014, reflecting lower raw material costs, organic net sales volume growth, and savings from the Carlisle Operating System. These positive impacts were partially offset by lower selling price and acquisition related costs. During the second quarter, the Company incurred $7.0 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in after-tax acquisition related costs ($10.7 million in pre-tax costs), associated with the acquisition of Finishing Brands. On a per share basis, income from continuing operations in the second quarter 2015 increased 24% to $1.43 per diluted share, from $1.15 per diluted share in the prior year.

All financial and percentage comparisons in our second quarter reporting are made to the same quarter of the previous year, unless otherwise stated. On April 1, 2015, the Company completed the acquisition of the Finishing Brands business. Beginning in the second quarter 2015, the Company added a reportable segment, Carlisle Fluid Technologies, to reflect the acquisition of Finishing Brands. This press release also includes a comparison of second quarter 2015 and second quarter 2014 selected financial results on a pro-forma basis for Carlisle and the CFT segment, which assumes the acquisition of Finishing Brands had occurred on January 1, 2014. For selected pro-forma information and reconciliation to the reported GAAP amounts, refer to the financial exhibits.

Comment

David A. Roberts, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We began our second quarter with the acquisition of Finishing Brands on April 1, which added a fifth segment, CFT, to our company portfolio. CFT, with its exposure to the growing markets for automotive and industrial finishing, is an exciting addition to Carlisle and we are already seeing solid performance and potential.

“Operationally, we achieved organic sales growth of 6.2% in the second quarter. EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes) increased 21% and EBIT margin rose 80 basis points to 15.0%, driven primarily by exceptional performance at Carlisle Construction Materials (CCM). On a pro-forma basis, excluding CFT acquisition costs, EBIT margin in the quarter was 16.1%, a 190 basis point improvement over the prior year.

“Net sales at CCM increased 7.8% in the second quarter, reflecting continued healthy commercial roofing demand in both new construction and reroofing. CCM’s EBIT grew an impressive 38% and its EBIT margin expanded 430 basis points to 19.4%, reflecting lower raw material costs, leverage on higher sales volume and the non-recurrence of plant startup costs that are now behind us. We remain bullish on CCM’s 2015 performance.

“CIT’s performance was also a highlight for the second quarter. CIT’s net sales grew 22%, reflecting 17% growth from the acquisition of LHi and 5.4% organic sales growth. Demand for CIT’s aerospace applications continued to be strong. CIT achieved a strong EBIT margin of 18.2% in the quarter, despite the impact of lower contractual selling prices and the dilutive effect of the LHi acquisition on EBIT margin. Sales from the LHi acquisition, which significantly expanded our medical platform, grew 9.1% from the first quarter to the second quarter of this year. We continue to expect 2015 to be another record year for CIT.

“Net sales at CFT, in its initial quarter as part of Carlisle, were $61.7 million. CFT reported a loss of $1.0 million before interest and taxes due to $9.3 million in pre-tax acquisition related costs. CFT is a truly global operation, spanning North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia. CFT adds a number of attractive and diverse end markets to Carlisle’s portfolio, including automotive manufacturing, automotive refinishing and other industrial finishing markets. While CFT is experiencing foreign currency headwinds, as noted in the pro-forma results, we remain very positive about the outlook for this segment and expect it to contribute EBIT margin in the mid-teen percent range by the end of 2015. Beyond 2015, margin expectations are even higher.

“Carlisle Brake & Friction’s (CBF) net sales declined 13% in the second quarter due to a 6.9% decline in volume and a 6.0% negative impact from foreign exchange movements. Demand in the agriculture and mining markets declined significantly compared to last year. Demand in the construction market, which had been improving, also declined in the second quarter reflecting slower growth in China. CBF took cost reduction actions to maintain an EBIT margin of 9.5% in the second quarter. However, due to foreign currency and soft market conditions, we expect net sales, EBIT and EBIT margin to be lower for the full-year 2015 as compared to 2014.

“Net sales at Carlisle FoodService Products (CFS) declined 3.3% in the second quarter and EBIT declined 14%. CFS experienced lower equipment sales in its healthcare markets as well as lower international sales. CFS reported an EBIT margin of 11.6% despite the lower sales. Prior year EBIT for CFS included a $1.1 million gain from the sale of property in The Netherlands.”

Roberts concluded by stating, “We expect 2015 to be an excellent year for Carlisle with the establishment of the CFT segment and record results at CCM and CIT. We expect organic sales growth to be in the mid-single digits, negatively impacted in part by lower sales at CBF. We are planning for EBIT and EBIT margin improvement primarily from sales growth leverage and continued favorable raw material conditions for CCM. Capital expenditures will be between $80 million and $90 million in 2015. We remain very favorably positioned with our liquidity and strong balance sheet to continue to pursue growth opportunities both organically and through acquisitions, while returning value to shareholders.”

Segment Results for Second Quarter 2015

Carlisle Construction Materials (CCM): Net sales in the second quarter 2015 grew 7.8% to $577.6 million, reflecting organic sales growth of 9.9% partially offset by a 2.1% negative impact due to the stronger U.S. dollar versus the Euro and Canadian dollar. CCM’s EBIT margin rose 430 basis points to 19.4%, primarily reflecting lower raw material costs, higher sales volume, savings from the Carlisle Operating System and the non-recurrence of plant startup expenses of $1.8 million in the prior year. These positive impacts were partially offset by unfavorable changes in mix and lower selling price.

Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CIT): Net sales in the second quarter 2015 grew 22% to $198.3 million, reflecting acquisition growth of 17% and organic growth of 5.4%. Net sales in CIT’s aerospace market were up 5%. Net sales to the military and test and measurement markets were up 7% and 13%, respectively. Net sales to the industrial market were down 15%. The acquisition of LHi contributed $27.7 million in net sales and $2.3 million in EBIT. CIT’s EBIT margin declined 280 basis points to 18.2%, primarily reflecting the impact of lower selling price from contractual reductions and the dilutive impact of LHi on EBIT margin. These negative impacts were partially offset by higher organic sales volume and savings from the Carlisle Operating System.

Carlisle Fluid Technologies (CFT): Net sales in the second quarter 2015 were $61.7 million. CFT’s reported loss of $1.0 million before interest and taxes included $9.3 million in acquisition related costs, consisting of $0.7 million in transaction related expenses and $8.6 million of additional costs of goods sold related to the fair valuation of acquired inventory. On a pro-forma basis, net sales in the second quarter were 7.9% lower than pro-forma net sales in the prior year, primarily due to the impact of foreign currency fluctuations. On a pro-forma basis, CFT’s EBIT margin for the second quarter of 2015 increased 20 basis points to 13.5% from the prior period due primarily to higher selling price.

Carlisle Brake & Friction (CBF): Net sales in the second quarter of 2015 declined 13% to $85.0 million, comprised of 6.9% lower organic sales and a 6.0% negative impact on net sales from foreign exchange rate fluctuations. Net sales in each of the agriculture and mining markets declined by 27%. Net sales into the construction market declined by 12%. CBF’s EBIT margin during the second quarter decreased 160 basis points to 9.5%, primarily due to lower sales volume and negative foreign exchange impact of $1.0 million from the stronger U.S. Dollar. These negative impacts were significantly offset by savings from cost reduction actions.

Carlisle FoodService Products (CFS): Net sales in the second quarter 2015 decreased by 3.3% to $62.0 million. Net sales into the healthcare market declined by 7% due to lower net sales of rethermalization equipment. Net sales into the foodservice market declined by 4%, primarily due to lower international sales. CFS’ net sales into the U.S. foodservice market were relatively flat. Net sales into the janitorial/sanitation market grew by 9%. CFS’ EBIT margin during the second quarter 2015 declined 150 basis points to 11.6%, primarily reflecting the non-recurrence of a $1.1 million gain in the prior year from the sale of exited property. The negative impact from lower net sales was offset by cost reduction efforts.

Corporate Expense

The $2.4 million increase in Corporate expense in the second quarter 2015 included $1.4 million in transaction costs connected with the Finishing Brands acquisition and higher costs related to benefit programs as well as management development and other programs.

Cash Flow

Cash flow provided from operations of $148.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015 was $78.4 million higher than cash provided of $70.4 million for the prior year period primarily due to higher net earnings in 2015 and lower tax payments in 2015 versus the prior period. For the first six months of 2015, average working capital (defined as the average of the quarter-end balances, excluding current year acquisitions, of receivables, plus inventory less accounts payable) as a percentage of annualized sales (defined as year-to-date net sales from continuing operations, excluding current year acquisitions, calculated on an annualized basis) increased to 18.7%, as compared to 18.0% for the prior year.

Free cash flow (defined as cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures, and comprised of continuing and discontinued operations), was $115.0 million for the first six months of 2015, an increase of $108.5 million versus the prior year. The increase in free cash flow was primarily attributable to increased cash provided from operations and $30.1 million lower capital expenditures in the first six months of 2015 versus the prior year.

Net cash used in investing activities of $611.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015 included $577.8 million used for the acquisition of Finishing Brands, net of cash acquired. The acquisition is subject to a final working capital adjustment, estimated to be an approximately $20.6 million payment to the seller to be paid in the third quarter of 2015.

During the first six months of 2015, the Company repurchased 339,700 shares under our share repurchase program.

Unaudited Reconciliation of Reported Amounts to Pro-Forma Amounts

The pro-forma net sales, EBIT, and EBIT margin of (1) Carlisle Companies and Finishing Brands combined and (2) the CFT segment inclusive of Finishing Brands are provided in this earnings release because management of the Company believes that the pro-forma financial information provides investors with additional information regarding trends in the financial performance of the Finishing Brands business in the periods presented in the earnings release, particularly those related to changes in net sales attributable to foreign exchange fluctuations and changes in prices, and its impact on the EBIT results of the Company as well as the CFT segment.

The information provided in the Unaudited Pro-Forma Segment Information reflects the net sales, EBIT, and EBIT margin of (1) Carlisle Companies and Finishing Brands Combined and (2) the CFT Segment on a pro-forma basis under the requirements of US GAAP in ASC 805. The Company will also disclose the Company’s and Finishing Brands’ combined pro-forma financial information in its US GAAP financial statement footnotes under Item 1 of the second quarter 2015 Form 10Q.

The pro-forma financial information presented below, as required under ASC 805, assumes the acquisition of Finishing Brands was consummated on January 1, 2014 and therefore net sales and EBIT of Finishing Brands have been combined with those of the Company in the periods prior to April 1, 2015, the date of the acquisition, and have been adjusted under the ASC 805 requirements.

Accordingly, certain non-recurring costs related to the valuation of inventory at fair value and other costs associated with the acquisition, primarily professional fees, have been removed from the results of the second quarter of 2015 and included in those of the first six months of 2014. Also, the periods from January 1, 2014 to March 31, 2015 include incremental amortization and depreciation related to the measurement of intangible assets and property, plant and equipment at fair value. The pro-forma financial information may not necessarily be indicative of future results.
