CLEVELAND, Jan. 18, 2013

CLEVELAND, Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE:
PH), the global leader in motion and control technologies, today reported
results for the fiscal 2013 second quarter ended December 31, 2012. Fiscal
2013 second quarter sales of $3.07 billion were essentially flat compared with
$3.11 billion in the prior year quarter. Acquisitions contributed 4 percent to
sales which was largely offset by a reduction in organic sales, particularly
internationally. Net income was $181.1 million compared with $242.3 million in
the second quarter of fiscal 2012, primarily reflecting reduced organic sales
volume. Fiscal 2013 second quarter earnings per diluted share were $1.19
compared with $1.56 in the prior year quarter.

Cash flow from operations for the first six months of fiscal 2013 was $347.3
million, or 5.5 percent of sales, compared with $563.4 million, or 8.9 percent
of sales for the first six months of fiscal 2012. Cash flow from operations
for the first six months of fiscal 2013 included a $225.6 million
discretionary contribution to the company's pension plan. Excluding this
discretionary contribution, cash flow from operations as a percent of sales
was 9.1 percent for the first six months of fiscal 2013.

"We performed well in the second quarter considering continued economic
weakness across all the regions we operate in," said Chairman, CEO and
President, Don Washkewicz. "Although economic conditions may improve, we
continued to take prudent actions to strengthen profitability and cash flow as
we enter the second half of the year, including cost reduction initiatives and
adjustments to planned capital expenditures."

Segment Results

In Industrial North America, second quarter sales increased 1.2 percent to
$1.2 billion, and operating income was $183.9 million compared with $195.7
million in the same period a year ago.

In Industrial International, second quarter sales decreased 4.1 percent to
$1.17 billion, and operating income was $123.4 million compared with $165.9
million in the same period a year ago.

In Aerospace, second quarter sales increased 6.5 percent to $528.7 million,
and operating income was $52.2 million compared with $70.3 million in the same
period a year ago.

In Climate and Industrial Controls, second quarter sales decreased 18.3
percent to $170.2 million, reflecting the impact of a business divestiture,
and operating income was $8.1 million compared with $9.8 million in the same
period a year ago.


Parker reported a decrease of 2 percent in orders for the quarter ending
December 31, 2012, compared with the same quarter a year ago. The company
reported the following orders:

  oOrders declined 6 percent in Industrial North America compared with the
    same quarter a year ago.
  oOrders declined 5 percent in Industrial International compared with the
    same quarter a year ago.
  oOrders increased 14 percent in Aerospace on a rolling 12-month average
  oOrders increased 1 percent in Climate and Industrial Controls compared
    with the same quarter a year ago.


For the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013, the company has maintained guidance
for earnings from continuing operations in the range of $6.15 to $6.75 per
diluted share. Fiscal 2013 guidance includes an expected year-over-year
increase in domestic qualified pension expense of approximately $0.35 per
diluted share due to accounting regulations which require the use of a lower
discount rate based on current market conditions.

Washkewicz added, "Following the natural, annual cycle of our business, we
anticipate that the second half of our fiscal year will be stronger than the
first half. In addition, ongoing actions to reduce costs and maintain cash
flow should position us for a strong finish to fiscal year 2013."

Notes on Orders

Orders provide near-term perspective on the company's outlook, particularly
when viewed in the context of prior and future quarterly order rates. However,
orders are not in themselves an indication of future performance. All
comparisons are at constant currency exchange rates, with the prior year
restated to the current-year rates. All exclude acquisitions until they can be
reflected in both the numerator and denominator. Aerospace comparisons are
rolling 12-month average computations. The total Parker orders number is
derived from a weighted average of the year-over-year quarterly percent change
in orders for Industrial North America, Industrial International, and Climate
and Industrial Controls, and the year-over-year 12-month rolling average of
orders for Aerospace.

Forward-Looking Statements

Forward-looking statements contained in this and other written and oral
reports are made based on known events and circumstances at the time of
release, and as such, are subject in the future to unforeseen uncertainties
and risks. All statements regarding future performance, earnings projections,
events or developments are forward-looking statements. It is possible that the
future performance and earnings projections of the company, including its
individual segments, may differ materially from current expectations,
depending on economic conditions within its mobile, industrial and aerospace
markets, and the company's ability to maintain and achieve anticipated
benefits associated with announced realignment activities, strategic
initiatives to improve operating margins, actions taken to combat the effects
of the current economic environment, and growth, innovation and global
diversification initiatives. A change in the economic conditions in individual
markets may have a particularly volatile effect on segment performance. Among
other factors which may affect future performance are: changes in business
relationships with and purchases by or from major customers, suppliers or
distributors, including delays or cancellations in shipments, disputes
regarding contract terms or significant changes in financial condition,
changes in contract cost and revenue estimates for new development programs
and changes in product mix; ability to identify acceptable strategic
acquisition targets; uncertainties surrounding timing, successful completion
or integration of acquisitions; ability to realize anticipated cost savings
from business realignment activities; threats associated with and efforts to
combat terrorism; uncertainties surrounding the ultimate resolution of
outstanding legal proceedings, including the outcome of any appeals;
competitive market conditions and resulting effects on sales and pricing;
increases in raw material costs that cannot be recovered in product pricing;
the company's ability to manage costs related to insurance and employee
retirement and health care benefits; and global economic factors, including
manufacturing activity, air travel trends, currency exchange rates,
difficulties entering new markets and general economic conditions such as
inflation, deflation, interest rates and credit availability. The company
makes these statements as of the date of this disclosure, and undertakes no
obligation to update them unless otherwise required by law.
