Commenting on Mohawk Industries' second quarter performance, Jeffrey S. Lorberbaum, Chairman and CEO, stated, "Mohawk, the world's largest flooring manufacturer, reported our most successful second quarter on record with strong revenue and profit growth, as both our legacy business and recent acquisitions delivered solid performances that exceeded our expectations.
For the quarter, our legacy net sales increased 6% as reported, with the balance of our growth stemming from our recent acquisitions of Pergo, Marazzi and Spano. Our adjusted SG&A improved by 110 basis points due to continuing control of our costs, and our adjusted operating income rose to 10% of sales, an improvement of 190 basis points."
Carpet segment net sales for the quarter were $771 million, up 5% over last year, rising to their highest levels in more than four years due to improvements in residential new construction and remodeling and continued strength in the commercial sector.
Operating income, excluding unusual charges, for the segment was 7% of sales, up 100 basis points due to volume leverage, improved sales mix from new products and lower SG&A. Residential sales in the specialty channel showed substantial growth, and home center business increased during the period. Rugs improved with a greater focus on new distribution channels and product categories.
Operating margins continued to expand due to sales from higher volume, super soft products and greater manufacturing and logistics efficiencies. During the period, carpet price increases were implemented and will align to cover the earlier raw material increases in the third quarter.
