For the first six months of 2013, the Company reported net sales of $361.0 million, up approximately 2% compared to the first six months of 2012 net sales of $354.4 million. Earnings per diluted share for the first six months of 2013 were $2.26 compared to earnings per diluted share of $1.80 for the first six months of 2012, with non-GAAP earnings per diluted share increasing to $1.96 for the first six months of 2013 from $1.81 in the first six months of 2012.
Second Quarter of 2013 Summary
Net sales for the second quarter of 2013 were $184.8 million, an increase of approximately 5% from net sales of $176.8 million in the second quarter of 2012. Product volumes, including acquisitions, increased revenues by approximately 6%, which was partially offset by a decrease of less than 1% due to selling and price mix. The impact on net sales due to foreign exchange rate translation was relatively consistent between the second quarter of 2013 and the second quarter of 2012.
Gross profit increased approximately $6.7 million, or approximately 11%, from the second quarter of 2012. The increase in gross profit was primarily driven by an improvement in gross margin to 36.4% from 34.3% in the second quarter of 2012 and 35.5% in the first quarter of 2013. The increase in gross margin reflects that the Company's product margins have returned to more acceptable levels.
Selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A") increased $3.9 million, or approximately 9%, from the second quarter of 2012, primarily due to increased costs related to acquisitions, higher incentive compensation and higher selling, inflationary and other labor related costs.
Included in SG&A for the second quarter of 2013 was an expense of approximately $0.4 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, which related to actions taken to streamline the costs of certain business operations. Included in the second quarter of 2012 were charges of $1.2 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, associated with the bankruptcies of certain U.S. customers and $0.6 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, related to the transition of the Company's CFO.
Other income for the second quarter of 2013 included a refund of $2.5 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, related to excise taxes paid on certain mineral oil sales, which was partially offset by an increase in the fair value of an acquisition's earnout liability of $0.7 million, or $0.03 per diluted share. Also, there were lower foreign exchange rate translation losses in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012, contributing to the increase in other income.
The decrease in interest expense was due to lower average borrowings and lower interest rates experienced in the second quarter of 2013 as compared to the second quarter of 2012.
