Albany International Corp. reported second-quarter net income per share of $0.20, after reductions of $0.47 from net restructuring charges, idle-capacity costs related to restructuring, and costs related to continuing performance-improvement initiatives. Discrete income tax adjustments reduced net income by $0.01 per share.

Net income per share for Q2 2007 was $0.15, after expenses related to restructuring and performance-improvement initiatives reduced net income per share by $0.31, and discrete tax adjustments increased net income per share by $0.09.

In July 2008, the Company closed on the sale of its Filtration Technologies business, the principal operations of which are in Gosford, Australia, and Zhangjiagang, China. At closing, the Company received $45.5 million, which amount is subject to certain post-closing adjustments. The Company does not expect these post-closing adjustments to reduce the purchase price. The activities of this business are reported as a discontinued operation in the second-quarter financial statements and, accordingly, are excluded from Tables 1, 2, and 3, below.

Net sales from continuing operations increased $40.5 million, or 15.8 percent compared to the same period last year. Excluding the effect of changes in currency translation rates, net sales increased 7.9 percent.

Gross profit was 34.7 percent of net sales in the second quarter of 2008, compared to 36.8 percent in the same period of 2007. The difference was principally due to costs associated with performance-improvement initiatives. As described in the paragraphs that follow Table 3, costs associated with idle-capacity and performance-improvement initiatives were $7.9 million in Q2 2008 and $0.8 million in Q2 2007.

Selling, technical, general, and research (STG&R) expenses were 29.3 percent of net sales in the second quarter of 2008, compared to 31.7 percent in the second quarter of 2007. STG&R expenses were $86.9 million in the second quarter of 2008, in comparison to $81.4 million in the second quarter of 2007.

Compared to Q2 2007, Q2 2008 STG&R expenses included a $5.8 million increase in expenses related to the effect of changes in currency translation rates, a $3.7 million increase in expenses related to performance-improvement initiatives, and a $1.0 million reduction in expenses related to incentive compensation resulting from the Company's lower share price.

Operating income was $14.5 million in the second quarter of 2008, compared to $5.9 million for the same period of 2007.

Q2 2008 net restructuring costs totaled $1.7 million ($0.05 per share) and included costs associated with the shutdown of the Company's Mansfield, Massachusetts, facility, and residual costs related to previously announced restructuring in PMC and Albany Door Systems. Those expenses were partially offset by a restructuring-related curtailment gain of $1.0 million.

Q2 2008 idle-capacity costs of $1.7 million ($0.05 per share) are related to previously announced closures of PMC plants in the U.S. The Company expects idle-capacity costs at these plants to be significantly lower in the third and fourth quarters.
