Carlisle Companies, Inc. Research Report

On July 23, 2013, Carlisle Companies, Inc. (Carlisle) reported its financial
results for Q2 2013. Net sales increased 1.2% YoY to $996.1 million. Net
income was $8.2 million or $0.13 per diluted share, compared to net income of
$92.8 million or $1.45 per diluted share in Q2 2012. Excluding the non-cash,
after-tax goodwill impairment charge, income from continuing operations was
$74.3 million or $1.14 per diluted share, compared to $89.4 million or $1.39
per diluted share in Q2 2012. According to Carlisle, income from continuing
operations, excluding the impairment charge, was lower due to lower sales
volume in some of its key industrial markets and negative selling price
realization within Carlisle Construction Materials. David A. Roberts,
Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Carlisle, said, "For the
second quarter of 2013, our results were again challenged by the significant
decline in the global off highway equipment market, continued weather related
headwinds in certain key markets as well as negative price realization within
our Construction Materials segment, which enjoyed very favorable price
realization last year." The Full Research Report on Carlisle Companies, Inc. -

James A. Rubright, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of RockTenn, stated,

quarter and 127% over the prior year quarter, reflect the continued
substantial improvements we are making in operating our businesses, executing
capital projects and executing our sales and pricing strategy. As these
broadly based initiatives continue to strengthen and as we further implement
the current pricing initiatives in corrugated packaging and consumer
paperboard grades, our earnings for the fourth quarter and the next fiscal
year should also be sharply higher than our earnings for the comparable prior
year periods." The Full Research Report on RockTenn Company - including full
