Adjusted Financial Results:

The third quarter and first nine months of 2013 contained two pre-tax, non-cash charges aggregating $7.7 million—including a $4.6 million loss on the disposal of equipment and a $3.1 million charge to account for a final pension obligation. The following table reflects 2013 third quarter and year-to-date GAAP results adjusted for these two non-cash charges. A reconciliation of non-GAAP figures adjusting for the non-cash charges in the third quarter and first nine months of 2013 to GAAP figures is available at the end of this release.

CLARCOR Inc. (CLC) reported that third quarter 2013 diluted earnings per share of $0.57 declined 5% from $0.60 in the third quarter of 2012. However, third quarter 2013 diluted earnings per share were impacted by two non-cash charges, a $4.6 million loss on disposal of equipment and a $3.1 million charge to account for a final pension obligation settlement. These two items reduced diluted earnings per share by approximately $0.10 in the third quarter of 2013. Third quarter net sales increased 1% from last year’s third quarter, including a 2% increase at the Engine/Mobile Filtration segment and a 1% increase at the Industrial/ Environmental Filtration segment, partially offset by a 5% reduction at the Packaging segment. A lower effective tax rate in the third quarter of 2013 favorably impacted diluted earnings per share by approximately $0.02 from the third quarter of 2012.

Changes in average foreign currency exchange rates reduced net sales by $0.3 million and operating profit by $0.2 million, each less than 1%, in the third quarter of 2013 compared with last year’s third quarter. For the first nine months of 2013, changes in average foreign currency exchange rates lowered net sales by $0.7 million and operating profit by $0.4 million, also each less than 1%, from the first nine months of 2012.

Chris Conway, CLARCOR’s Chief Executive Officer and Chairman, commented, “Our third quarter results were negatively impacted by a $4.6 million non-cash loss on disposal of equipment at our HVAC filtration operating unit and a $3.1 million non-cash pension charge pursuant to last year’s retirement of our former CEO and Chairman. The equipment disposed of at our HVAC filter operations was initially designed and built to automate the production of low-end disposable air filters consistent with our ‘Project 14’ strategy developed in 2007. However, our current strategy is focused on higher-end air filtration products. In addition, we have recently redesigned our low-end disposable filter products and developed technology which now allows us to manufacture these filters more cost effectively than with the equipment designed pursuant to ‘Project 14.’ As a result, in the third quarter we reached the decision to dispose of this equipment. Adjusted for the financial impact of this $4.6 million non-cash loss on disposal and the $3.1 million non-cash charge pursuant to the final settlement accounting for the pension obligation, diluted earnings per share would have increased 12% from last year’s third quarter, and our operating margin would have increased 1.1 percentage points to 17.2%. Our third quarter diluted earnings per share, as adjusted, would have been a record third quarter high, and our operating margin, as adjusted, would have been the highest third quarter operating margin in almost twenty years.

“Several of our core filtration markets—including our U.S. and China heavy-duty engine markets—posted solid third quarter top-line growth. Sales in our domestic heavy-duty engine filtration aftermarket increased 6% from the third quarter of 2012—indicative of our continued success in developing new distribution and introducing new products. After double-digit sales growth in the second quarter, our third quarter heavy-duty engine filtration sales in China increased almost 9% from last year’s third quarter. This growth was driven almost entirely from the development of the China aftermarket, both through independent distribution and OE dealers. Despite solid heavy-duty engine filtration growth in the U.S. and China in the third quarter, sales in several other foreign markets declined from the third quarter of 2012—notably Europe, Australia and South Africa. Although some European economies have exhibited signs of recovery, our sales in that region continue to be sluggish. Lower third quarter heavy-duty engine filtration sales in Australia and South Africa were negatively impacted by slowing economic growth in those countries.

“Third quarter sales in our global oil & gas filtration business increased 6% from last year’s third quarter. We experienced solid growth on a global basis, but our Latin American and European sales were especially strong. Oil & gas filtration sales in Latin America increased over $4.7 million, or 300%, in this year’s third quarter as we continued to develop key customer relationships in this expanding market. Our European oil & gas filtration sales grew over 12% primarily as the result of a significant natural gas vessel project that shipped in the third quarter of 2013. We were able to grow our global oil & gas filtration business by 6% in the third quarter despite significantly lower sales of off-shore oil drilling filtration products, which we expect to decline for the full year primarily due to a temporary order delay from a major customer. Our third quarter oil & gas filtration sales—primarily natural gas and aviation—would have increased approximately 9% excluding the impact of lower off-shore oil drilling filtration product sales.

“Strong third quarter sales in our global oil & gas filtration business were partially offset in our Industrial/Environmental Filtration segment by lower sales in our domestic air filtration market and at TransWeb—which continues to be negatively impacted by lower year-over-year sales to a major customer. Sales in our domestic air filtration market declined approximately 10% from last year’s third quarter, almost entirely driven by lower sales of swine filtration products. Although we are certainly disappointed with lower than expected third quarter sales, we recognize that we are still in the launch and penetration stage of this higher-margin swine filtration market, and we remain excited with its long-term growth potential.

“Our strong operational execution continued in the third quarter as evidenced by our financial and operational metrics when adjusted for the two non-cash charges. Gross margin, as adjusted, at each of our reporting segments increased from the third quarter of 2012, and our selling and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales, as adjusted, declined 0.8 percentage points from last year’s third quarter. Of particular note, operating margin, as adjusted, in our Industrial/ Environmental Filtration segment was 12.5%, a record third quarter operating margin in this reporting segment and 1.1 percentage points higher than last year’s third quarter. These solid operational results across the Company demonstrate our on-going commitment to expand operating margins while focusing on long-term growth.”

Third Quarter Results:

Engine/Mobile Filtration Segment

Net sales at our Engine/Mobile Filtration segment rose 2% from the third quarter of 2012. Higher net sales included a 5% increase in the U.S.—primarily due to higher heavy-duty engine filter aftermarket sales driven by growth in U.S. truck tonnage—partially offset by a 4% reduction in foreign markets including lower heavy-duty engine filtration sales in most of our major foreign markets including Europe and Australia.

Operating profit at our Engine/Mobile Filtration segment increased $0.1 million from the third quarter of 2012, and operating margin declined slightly to 22.2% from 22.4% in last year’s third quarter. However, adjusted for the impact of an allocated portion of the non-cash pension charge in the third quarter, operating profit increased $1.5 million and operating margin increased to 23.2%, or 0.8 percentage points, from last year’s third quarter.

Industrial/Environmental Filtration Segment

Net sales at our Industrial/Environmental Filtration segment increased 1% from the third quarter of 2012. These higher net sales included 7% growth outside the U.S. partially offset by a 1% reduction domestically. Higher sales outside the U.S. were the result of strong oil & gas filtration sales in several foreign markets—notably Brazil and Europe. The 1% decline in U.S. sales was primarily driven by lower swine filtration sales at our HVAC operating unit partially offset by continued growth in our domestic oil & gas filtration market.

Operating profit at our Industrial/Environmental Filtration segment declined $4.4 million from the third quarter of 2012, and operating margin declined to 8.1% from 11.4% in last year’s third quarter. However, adjusted for the impact of the loss on disposal of equipment at our HVAC operations and an allocated portion of the non-cash pension charge in the third quarter, operating profit increased $1.7 million and operating margin increased to 12.5%, or 1.1 percentage points, from last year’s third quarter.

Packaging Segment

Net sales at our Packaging segment declined $1.0 million, or 5%, from the third quarter of 2012 primarily due to the expected sales decline in film packaging products in addition to lower flat sheet decorating activity. Despite this reduction in sales, operating profit—adjusted for the impact of an allocated portion of the non-cash pension charge—increased 15% in this reporting segment as our operating margin, as adjusted, improved to 11.1%, a 1.9 percentage point improvement from last year’s third quarter. This higher operating margin was primarily the continuing result of operational improvements initiated last year pursuant to our transition from several large volume sales programs.

Fiscal 2013 Guidance

Chris Conway commented on 2013 guidance: “Even though our third quarter operating results—excluding the impact of the two non-cash charges—were solid compared with last year’s third quarter, our top-line fell short of our internal expectations heading into the quarter. Primary headwinds included lower heavy-duty engine filtration sales outside the U.S., lower sales of commercial and industrial HVAC and swine filtration products in the U.S. and lower sales of off-shore oil drilling filtration products. Although we expect continued growth in our core filtration markets in the fourth quarter, including projected 3% to 5% growth in our domestic heavy-duty engine filtration aftermarket and continued growth in our oil & gas business, we believe we will continue to experience top-line headwinds in several filtration markets. As a result, we are lowering our 2013 full-year expectations for sales growth and diluted earnings per share. We expect our 2013 diluted earnings per share to be between $2.35 and $2.45. This range includes the $0.10 per diluted share negative impact of both the $4.6 million loss on disposal of equipment and the $3.1 million non-cash pension charge recognized in the third quarter.”

Projected changes in net sales for fiscal 2013 as compared to 2012 and operating margin by segment and on a consolidated basis are as follows:

 

2013 Estimated
Sales Change

 

2013 Estimated
Operating Margin

 
Engine/Mobile Filtration 1.0% to 2.0% 21.5% to 22.0%
Industrial/Environmental Filtration 1.5% to 2.5% 10.5% to 11.5%
Packaging -4.0% to -1.0% 8.0% to 9.0%
CLARCOR 1.0% to 2.0% 15.3% to 16.1%

We project fiscal year 2013 cash from operations to be between $120 million and $130 million, capital expenditures to be between $45 million and $55 million and our effective tax rate to be between 31.8% and 32.2%.

RECONCILIATION OF SELECTED GAAP MEASURES TO NON-GAAP MEASURES

(Dollars in thousands, except share data)

 
In addition to the GAAP results provided in this release, we are providing non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP selling and administrative expense, non-GAAP operating profit, non-GAAP net earnings and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for the third quarter and nine months ended August 31, 2013. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. The GAAP measures most directly comparable to non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP selling and administrative expense, non-GAAP operating profit, non-GAAP net earnings and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share are gross profit, selling and administrative expense, operating profit, net earnings and diluted earnings per share, respectively.
 
The quarter ended and nine months ended August 31, 2013 non-GAAP financial measures provided in this release exclude the impact of two non-cash items that occurred during the third quarter of 2013, a $4.6 million loss on the disposal of equipment and a $3.1 million charge to account for a final pension obligation. Although the comparison of data excluding these selected items in our quarter ended and nine months ended August 31, 2013 is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP, we believe that providing these non-GAAP financial measures better enables investors to understand and evaluate our historical and prospective operating performance. We believe that removing the impact of these selected items provides a more comparable measure of the changes in gross profit, selling and administrative expense, operating profit, net earnings and diluted earnings per share in the quarter ended and nine months ended August 31, 2013 compared to the quarter ended and nine months ended September 1, 2012.
 
These non-GAAP financial measures may have limitations as analytical tools, and we do not intend these measures to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related GAAP measures. Following are reconciliations to the most comparable GAAP financial measures of these non-GAAP financial measures.
