Nov '12
Mohawk Industries Inc. announced 2012 third quarter net earnings of $70 million and diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $1.01. Excluding restructuring charges, net earnings were $72 million and EPS was $1.04, a 25% increase over last year's third quarter adjusted EPS.

Net sales for the third quarter of 2012 were $1.5 billion, an increase of 2% versus prior year and an increase of 4% on a constant exchange rate. For the third quarter of 2011, net sales were $1.4 billion, net earnings were $47 million and EPS was $0.68. Excluding unusual items, net earnings for the third quarter of 2011 were $57 million and EPS was $0.83.

For the nine months ending September 29, 2012, net sales were $4.4 billion, an increase of 2% versus prior year and 4% on a constant exchange rate. Net earnings and EPS for the nine-month period were $184 million and $2.66, respectively. Excluding restructuring charges, net earnings were $191 million and EPS was $2.76, an increase of 25% over the nine-month adjusted EPS results in 2011.

For the nine months ending October 1, 2011, net sales were $4.3 billion, net earnings were $131 million and EPS was $1.90. Excluding unusual items, net earnings and EPS were $152 million and $2.21, respectively.

Commenting on Mohawk Industries' third quarter performance, Jeffrey S. Lorberbaum, Chairman and CEO, stated, "All of our segments delivered solid third quarter performances with improvements in product mix, pricing, volume and productivity, as well as lower interest expense contributing to our results.

“Across the enterprise, we have managed to keep SG&A dollars in line with last year even as we invested significantly more in new product innovations and marketing to improve our future sales and product mix. During the quarter, we generated adjusted EBITDA of $179 million and free cash flow of $156 million.

“Both our net debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio and net debt to capitalization ratio improved to 1.7 and 22%, respectively.  Mohawk's strong financial position provides us with the flexibility to pursue strategic opportunities such as the recently announced agreement to acquire Pergo, the most recognized brand of premium laminate flooring in the U.S. and Europe."

The Mohawk segment increased its adjusted operating income margin 180 basis points with sales remaining flat compared to 2011. The gains stemmed from improved pricing and product mix, reduced manufacturing and distribution costs and increased productivity.

“Our carpet sales performance was stronger in our specialty and contractor channels but was offset by the timing of product transitions in the home center channel. Our rug sales improved over the prior period, though they still remained below last year as retailers adjusted their strategies with consumer spending. 

“We saw continued improvement in mix and expanded our SmartStrand Silk collection, which has redefined the premium carpet market. We enhanced productivity through improved manufacturing and distribution efficiencies and gains from our capital investments.
