RV Revenue Lifts Patrick to 38% 2Q Sales Rise

Patrick Industries Inc., a manufacturer and distributor of building and component products for the recreational vehicle, manufactured housing and industrial markets, reported a 38% increase in revenue for its second quarter boosted by strong performance in RV sales.

Sales during the second quarter, ended June 30, grew $44 million to $159.6 million from $115.6 million in the same quarter of 2012. The increase was primarily attributable to a 46% gain in the company’s revenue from the RV industry, which represented approximately 73% of the Patrick’s second quarter sales. Sales to the manufactured housing industry increased 13%, while sales to the industrial markets increased 33%.

Net income during the period was $7.6 million, or 70 cents per diluted share, compared to $13.3 million, or $1.22 per diluted share. The company noted that it began to record income taxes at an estimated effective tax rate of 39% in the first quarter of 2013. Net income was also impacted by an income tax provision of $4.8 million and included an after-tax gain on sale of fixed assets of $0.3 million, related to the sale of a facility in Halstead, Kansas.

For the six months, sales increased $83.4 million, or 38.2%, to $301.7 million from $218.3 million in the same period in 2012 as RV sales grew 48%. Net income was $13.6 million, or $1.25 per diluted share, compared with $18.3 million, or $1.70 per diluted share. Patrick noted that net income included the impact of an income tax provision of $8.7 million at an estimated effective tax rate of 39% along with after-tax gain on sale of fixed assets of $0.3 million related to the Kansas facility.

Todd Cleveland, president and CEO for Elkhart, Ind.-based Patrick, noted, “We are pleased with our second-quarter revenue growth as well as the energy and momentum in our end markets, especially in the RV industry, as evidenced by the solid shipment levels during the first half of the year as well as OEM and dealer sentiment. We believe the dedication of our team members and our focus on delivering value to our customer base, in combination with the acquisitions we have completed over the past several years, will continue to provide positive contributions to our operating profitability and afford us the opportunity to gain additional penetration in the RV, MH and industrial markets. In addition, we also saw the historical seasonal pickup in both the RV and MH markets as measured by higher unit shipments compared to the first quarter of 2013.”

In February, the company’s board authorized a stock repurchase program for the purchase of up to $10 million of its common stock for the following 12 months. As of July 19, the Patrick had repurchased 407,330 shares at an average price of $14.92 per share for a total cost of approximately $6.1 million.
