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."

Rubright, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of RockTenn, stated, "Our quarterly adjusted earnings of $2.16 per share, up 93% over the preceding 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."
