Q2 2022 Highlights:

  • Record quarterly net sales and profit

  • Net sales increased 23% from comparable 2021 period

  • Diluted EPS of $2.77, an increase of 54% from comparable 2021 period

Net sales for the second quarter of 2022 were $163.5 million, an increase of 23%, compared to $133.0 million in the second quarter of 2021. Currency translation rates had an unfavorable impact on 2022 second quarter net sales of $5.5 million, or 3.4%.

The Company posted net income for the second quarter of 2022 of $13.7 million, or $2.77 per diluted share, compared to $8.9 million, or $1.80 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2021. Second quarter 2022 net income benefited from the significant increase in net sales while leveraging fixed costs and gross margin gains resulting from the previously announced price increases which are beginning to offset the impact of inflation on commodity prices and freight.  Currency translation rates had a favorable effect on net income of $0.1 million.

Net sales increased 20% to $301.7 million for the first six months of 2022 compared to $250.6 million for the first six months of 2021.  Currency translation rates had an unfavorable impact on net sales of $8.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022.

Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2022 was $26.0 million, or $5.25 per diluted share, compared to $16.0 million or $3.25 per diluted share, for the comparable period in 2021.  YTD June 30, 2022 net income benefited from the 20% YTD increase in net sales with related fixed cost leverage as well as the realization of price increases which are beginning to offset the impact of inflation on commodities and freight.  Also benefiting the YTD net income was the $4.4 million non-taxable gain from life insurance benefits.  Currency translation rates had an unfavorable effect on net income of $0.1 million.

Rob Ruhlman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We continue to record impressive gains in both net sales and earnings, with the second quarter of 2022 being a new record for both.  Excluding the impact of currency translation, all regions reported an increase in net sales versus the second quarter of 2021 and on a YTD basis all regions except for Asia-Pacific reported increased net sales.   Our sales growth was made possible by strong volume growth in both the energy and communications product families, incremental sales from our newest acquisitions and selling price adjustments required to offset the significant levels of inflation experienced last year and so far this year. We continuously monitor the impact of inflationary increases on our raw material inputs and freight expense.  Additional selling price adjustments may be required to offset further inflationary increases. Customer satisfaction remains our primary goal – accomplished by providing high-quality products and services that meet or exceed expectations."
