Dorman Products, Inc. Reports Sales and Earnings for the Second Quarter Ended June 25, 2011

COLMAR, PA--(Marketwire - Jul 26, 2011) - Dorman Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: DORM) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 25, 2011.

Revenues for the three months ended June 25, 2011 increased 14% over the prior year to $131.6 million from $115.0 million last year. Net income in the second quarter of 2011 was up 11% to $12.7 million from $11.5 million in the same period last year. Diluted earnings per share in the second quarter of 2011 rose 11% to $0.70 from $0.63 in the same period last year.

For the six months ended June 25, 2011 and June 26, 2010:

  • Revenues in 2011 increased 20% over the prior year to $256.0 million from $214.0 million. Revenue growth was driven primarily by strong overall demand for our products and higher new product sales.
  • Net income in 2011 was up 19% to $25.1 million from $21.1 million last year. Diluted earnings per share in 2011 rose 18% to $1.38 from $1.17 in 2010.
  • Gross profit margin was 36.0% in 2011 compared to 37.9% in 2010. The decrease in margin percent is primarily the result of an increase in transportation costs and an unfavorable change in sales mix.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 13% in 2011 to $52.5 million from $46.3 million in 2010, but were down as a percentage of sales from 21.6% in 2010 to 20.5% in 2011. The spending increase was primarily the result of higher variable costs related to our sales increase and investments in new product development initiatives.
  • Our effective tax rate decreased to 36.4% from 39.1% in the prior year due to the 2011 receipt of tax-exempt life insurance proceeds used to fund an officer's death benefit.
  • Operating cash flow for 2011 was $19.1 million compared to $16.7 million in 2010. Cash on hand as of June 25, 2011 was $38.8 million.

Mr. Steven Berman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Second quarter sales growth was strong, but down from recent growth levels as a result of inventory reduction efforts by a few customers. However, new product revenues remained strong, and we introduced over 1,000 New to the Aftermarket products during the first half of the year. We are on pace to introduce a record number of New to the Aftermarket products in 2011. During the quarter we completed construction on a 177,800 square foot addition to our Warsaw, Kentucky facility which will provide much needed space as we continue to expand our business."
