CALHOUN, Ga. , Aug. 1, 2013 /CNW/ - Mohawk Industries, Inc. (MHK) today announced 2013 second quarter net earnings of $85 million and diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $1.16 . Excluding unusual charges, net earnings were $134 million and EPS was $1.84 , a 61% increase over last year's second quarter adjusted EPS. Net sales for the second quarter of 2013 were $2.0 billion , an increase of approximately 35% versus the prior year's second quarter. For the second quarter of 2012, net sales were $1.5 billion , net earnings were $73 million and EPS was $1.06 ; excluding unusual charges, net earnings were $79 million and EPS was $1.14 .

For the six months ending June 29, 2013 , net sales were $3.5 billion , an increase of 20% versus the prior year. Net earnings and EPS for the six-month period were $135 million and $1.89 , respectively. Net earnings excluding unusual charges were $195 million and adjusted EPS was $2.73 , an increase of 58% over the six-month adjusted EPS results in 2012. For the six months ending June 30, 2012 , net sales were $2.9 billion , net earnings were $114 million and EPS was $1.64 . Excluding unusual charges, net earnings and EPS were $120 million and $1.73 , respectively.

Commenting on Mohawk Industries' second quarter performance, Jeffrey S. Lorberbaum , Chairman and CEO, stated, "Mohawk, the world's largest flooring manufacturer, today 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.

Ceramic segment net sales were $760 million , up 88% over last year, with strong growth in the legacy Dal-Tile business as well as the Marazzi acquisition. Operating income, excluding unusual charges, was 12% of sales, up 260 basis points over the prior year due to increased volume, the Marazzi acquisition, sales mix and manufacturing efficiencies. North American sales rose in the low teens with strength in commercial specialty retail, home center channels and continued expansion in Mexico . Our Russian ceramic sales are performing well, with double digit growth as a result of our integrated distribution model and increased participation in the stronger construction market. European ceramic sales rose slightly with expansion in Northern Europe and exports to other markets offsetting soft conditions in Southern Europe .

Laminate and wood segment net sales were $471 million , up 33% over last year, primarily due to our acquisitions of Pergo and Spano with stronger sales in legacy North America offsetting our slower legacy European business. Operating income, excluding unusual charges, was 13% of sales, an improvement of 90 basis points over the prior year due to lower amortization and increased North American sales. We have integrated our management of Unilin and Pergo into a single entity, reducing SG&A expenses, consolidating administrative functions, increasing manufacturing productivity and eliminating redundancies. Europe continues to face headwinds with the legacy sales down slightly and margins under pressure. The Pergo integration in Europe is well underway and will create significant synergies in sales, products and production. Our wood manufacturing in Malaysia , distribution in Australia and laminate manufacturing in Russia continue to show improvement. During the period, we completed the acquisition of Spano and have identified many opportunities for improvement including expanding the product offering and distribution, optimizing our manufacturing assets and reducing manufacturing complexity.

"Our performance during the second quarter underscored the value of our recent acquisitions and our ability to integrate them into our business. We have a talented management team that is focused on driving our historical businesses while optimizing our new acquisitions. We have quickly identified and executed many significant changes including cost and efficiency improvements, asset consolidation, realignment of sales and brand strategies and the enhancement of our product offering. We are committed to bringing innovation to the market in all our products, and our new acquisitions have enhanced our ability to realize this. We are increasingly confident in the continued strengthening of the U.S. market, and we believe that continued job growth, expanded new home construction and greater remodeling investments along with our new acquisitions will improve our future results. With these factors, our guidance for third quarter earnings is $1.81 to $1.91 per share, excluding any restructuring or acquisition costs. With business improvement and acquisitions in 2013, we anticipate the fourth quarter seasonality impact to be slightly more than 2010 and 2011."

The Company believes it is useful for itself and investors to review, as applicable, both GAAP and the above non-GAAP measures in order to assess the performance of the Company's business for planning and forecasting in subsequent periods. In particular, the Company believes excluding the impact of restructuring, acquisition and integration-related costs is useful because it allows investors to evaluate our performance for different periods on a more comparable basis.
