Mohawk Industries Inc announced 2011 fourth quarter net earnings of $43 million and diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.62. Excluding unusual items, net earnings for the fourth quarter of 2011 were $50 million and EPS was $0.72, a 9% increase over last year. Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2011 were $1.4 billion, increasing 9% as reported and 10% with a constant exchange rate. For the fourth quarter of 2010, net earnings were $46 million and EPS was $0.66. Excluding unusual items for the fourth quarter of 2010, net earnings were $45 million and EPS was $0.66.

For the full year of 2011, our net earnings were $174 million and EPS was $2.52.

Excluding unusual items, net earnings for the full year of 2011 were $202 million and EPS was $2.92, a 16% increase over last year. Net sales for the full year of 2011 were $5.6 billion, representing a 6% increase over 2010. For the full year of 2010, our net earnings were $185 million, and EPS was $2.65. Excluding unusual items for the full year of 2010, net earnings were $173 million and EPS was $2.52.

Commenting on Mohawk Industries' performance, Jeffrey S. Lorberbaum, Chairman and CEO, stated, "The Company's fourth quarter results reflect improvements in sales and adjusted net earnings over last year with all segments showing sales growth for the last three quarters. In the U.S., sales in both the residential and commercial categories expanded, with commercial growing at a faster pace."

"Increased prices across many product categories are being implemented in the first quarter to recover higher material costs. Each segment has reduced costs through process improvements, investments in technology and strategic realignment of assets. Our net debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio was 2.0 and we have available liquidity of more than $900 million to redeem the 2012 bonds and provide flexibility for future opportunities."

"Mohawk segment net sales grew by more than 8% with both the residential and commercial channels showing improvement. Operating margins were compressed by higher material costs and the delay of our price increase until the first quarter of 2012. A price increase of 5-7% is presently being implemented to offset material inflation."

"We introduced the next generation of soft carpets, branded SmartStrand Silk, which have an unparalleled softness, performance and environmental position. We expanded our filament extrusion and carpet tile capacity to satisfy the growing demand. We reduced our costs with improved manufacturing productivity, re-engineered processes and a more streamlined infrastructure. "

"Dal-Tile segment net sales grew almost 10% during the quarter with commercial growth exceeding residential. Our residential sales continued their positive growth trends for the third consecutive period. In the first quarter, we are implementing price increases of 3-5% on certain products to recover higher material and transportation costs."
