Dorman Products, Inc. Reports Record Sales and Earnings for the Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2012

COLMAR, PA--(Marketwire - Jul 31, 2012) - Dorman Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: DORM) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012.

For the three months ended June 30, 2012 and June 25, 2011:

  • Revenues from continuing operations in 2012 increased 14% over the prior year to $144.2 million from $127.0 million. Revenue growth was driven primarily by strong overall demand for our products and higher revenues from recently-introduced products.
  • Net income from continuing operations in 2012 increased 25% to $16.1 million from $12.9 million last year. Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations in 2012 rose 26% to $0.44 from $0.35 in 2011.
  • Gross profit margin was 36.9% in 2012 compared to 35.9% in 2011. The increase in margin percent is primarily the result of lower transportation costs and a favorable change in sales mix.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 9% in 2012 to $27.4 million from $25.1 million in 2011, but were down as a percentage of sales to 19.1% in 2012 from 19.7% in 2011. Cost increases were primarily the result of higher variable costs and additional product development spending.

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, revenues from continuing operations increased 13% over the prior year to $279.0 million from $247.2 million last year. Net income from continuing operations in 2012 increased 21% to $31.4 million from $26.0 million in the same period last year. Diluted earnings per share in 2012 rose 21% to $0.86 from $0.71 in the same period last year. Operating cash flow in 2012 was $23.4 million compared to $19.1 million in 2011.

During the second quarter of 2012, we recorded income from discontinued operations totaling $3.6 million as a result of the liquidation of our Swedish business, which comprised of a $3.0 million non-cash currency translation gain and $0.6 million in foreign income tax credits.

Prior year earnings per share and weighted average share information have been adjusted to reflect the 2-for-1 stock split that occurred in June 2012.

Mr. Steven Berman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "New product sales, and sales of recently-introduced products, drove 13% first half sales growth, well above reported industry growth rates. Our success is directly attributed to the hard work and dedication of our customers and our contributors in delivering formerly dealer only new products to the market. These efforts have enabled Dorman and its customers to continue to grow despite the uncertain economic environment. We remain committed to continuing our industry-leading new product efforts. As a result, we continue to aggressively invest in our product development infrastructure to deliver new products."
