CLEVELAND, April 25, 2013

CLEVELAND, April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/-- Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE:
PH), the global leader in motion and control technologies, today reported
results for the fiscal 2013 third quarter ended March 31, 2013 and announced a
5 percent increase in its quarterly cash dividend. Fiscal 2013 third quarter
sales were $3.30 billion compared with $3.39 billion in the prior year
quarter. Acquisitions contributed 4 percent which was offset by a 6 percent
reduction in organic sales. Net income was $256.6 million in the current
quarter compared with $312.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2012.
Fiscal 2013 third quarter earnings per diluted share were $1.68 compared with
$2.01 in the prior year quarter.


Cash flow from operations for the first nine months of fiscal 2013 was $718.8
million, or 7.5 percent of sales, compared with $1,006.5 million, or 10.3
percent of sales for the first nine months of fiscal 2012. Cash flow from
operations for the first nine months of fiscal 2013 included a $225.6 million
discretionary contribution to the company's pension plan. Excluding this
contribution, cash flow from operations as a percent of sales was 9.9 percent
for the first nine months of fiscal 2013.

The Board of Directors increased the company's regular quarterly cash dividend
to 45 cents per share of common stock and declared a dividend payable June 7,
2013 to shareholders of record as of May 10, 2013. This represents a 5 percent
increase over the previous quarterly dividend of 43 cents per common share and
is the second consecutive increase this year. This is the company's 252nd
consecutive quarterly dividend, resulting in a total distribution to
shareholders of approximately $67 million.

"The fundamentals of our business remain very strong despite a mediocre global
economic environment," said Chairman, CEO and President, Don Washkewicz. "I
am particularly pleased that we were able to deliver such strong total segment
operating margins of 14 percent this quarter. We also continue to drive high
levels of operating cash flow, which has allowed us the flexibility to
announce our second consecutive quarterly dividend increase this year. This
puts our fiscal 2013 dividend increase at 10 percent. We have now extended
our long-standing annual dividend increase record to 57 consecutive fiscal
years, which is among the top five longest running dividend-increase records
in the S&P 500 index, and we have more than doubled our annual payout in the
past five years."

Segment Results

In Industrial North America, third quarter sales decreased 2.4 percent to
$1.28 billion, and operating income was $209.0 million compared with $227.0
million in the same period a year ago.

In Industrial International, third quarter sales decreased 3.5 percent to
$1.24 billion, and operating income was $152.3 million compared with $195.1
million in the same period a year ago.

In Aerospace, third quarter sales increased 6.5 percent to $578.0 million, and
operating income was $80.1 million compared with $65.9 million in the same
period a year ago.

In Climate and Industrial Controls, third quarter sales decreased 18.0 percent
to $203.9 million, and operating income was $21.3 million compared with $23.2
million in the same period a year ago. These results reflect the impact of a
business divestiture in the fiscal 2013 second quarter.


Parker reported a decrease of 7 percent in orders for the quarter ending March
31, 2013, compared with the same quarter a year ago. The company reported the
following orders:

  oOrders declined 10 percent in Industrial North America compared with the
    same quarter a year ago.
  oOrders declined 7 percent in Industrial International compared with the
    same quarter a year ago.
  oOrders were unchanged in Aerospace on a rolling 12-month average basis.
  oOrders declined 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 the
midpoint and narrowed the range of guidance for earnings from continuing
operations to $6.25 to $6.65 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, "We are not anticipating any meaningful change in global
economic conditions through the remainder of the fiscal year. We will
continue to take actions to drive operating cash flow while at the same time
position ourselves for ongoing profitable growth and strong shareholder

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.
