Valspar Boasts Strong Sales in Second-Quarter 2011, but Costs Take Off the Shine, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - May 17, 2011) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- Leading paint and coatings company Valspar Corporation (NYSE:VAL) (Minneapolis, Minnesota) saw mixed results in its fiscal second quarter of 2011, as increased expenses and sales costs somewhat diminished strong revenues. Net income for the quarter was reported to be $56.31 million, an 8.7% decrease from the unusually strong fiscal second quarter of 2010.

Industrial Info is tracking more than $10 million in active Valspar projects in the U.S., including the $1.5 million closure of a coatings plant in Seattle, Washington. After operations cease at the facility in June this year, the company will decide whether to sell the plant, or dismantle and demolish it.
