CLEVELAND, Aug. 6, 2013

CLEVELAND, Aug. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/-- Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE:
PH), the global leader in motion and control technologies, today reported
results for the fiscal 2013 fourth quarter and year ended June 30, 2013.
Fiscal 2013 sales were $13.0 billion, compared with $13.1 billion in fiscal
2012. Net income for the year was $948.8 million, compared with $1,155.5
million in fiscal 2012. Fiscal 2013 earnings per diluted share were $6.26,
compared with $7.45 in the previous year, and included an increase in domestic
qualified pension expense of approximately $0.35 per diluted share due to
accounting regulations which required the use of a lower discount rate due to
market conditions. Cash flow from operations for fiscal 2013 was $1.2
billion, or 9.1 percent of sales, compared with cash flow from operations of
$1.5 billion, or 11.6 percent of sales, in the prior year. Cash flow from
operations in 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 10.9 percent for fiscal 2013.


Fiscal 2013 fourth quarter sales were a record at $3.43 billion compared with
$3.41 billion in the same quarter a year ago. Net income for the fiscal 2013
fourth quarter was $271.1 million, compared with $302.3 million in the fourth
quarter of fiscal 2012. Earnings per diluted share for the fiscal 2013 fourth
quarter were $1.78, compared with $1.96 in last year's fourth quarter.
Earnings per diluted share wereless than expected due toreduced
volumesandgreater than anticipated inventory, acquisition, integration and
related expenses.

"Our performance in fiscal year 2013 largely reflects challenging global
macro-economic conditions and integration and acquisition related costs," said
Chairman, CEO and President, Don Washkewicz. "As the year progressed, we
continued to adapt to weak conditions and drive stronger operational
performance finishing positively with record fourth quarter sales and our
highest quarterly segment operating margin for the fiscal year at 14.5
percent. For the year, we were able to deliver high levels of segment
operating margin and operating cash flows."

Fourth Quarter Segment Results

In Industrial North America, fiscal 2013 fourth quarter sales decreased 2.6
percent to $1.3 billion, and operating income was $225.1 million compared with
$249.1 million in the same period a year ago.

In Industrial International, fourth quarter sales increased 3.3 percent to
$1.28 billion, and operating income was $156.2 million compared with $163.9
million in the same period a year ago.

In Aerospace, fourth quarter sales increased 9.5 percent to $620.0 million,
and operating income was $86.1 million compared with $85.3 million in the same
period a year ago.

In Climate and Industrial Controls, fourth quarter sales decreased 16.3
percent to $224.6 million, and operating income was $31.1 million compared
with $31.5 million in the same period a year ago. These results reflect the
impact of business divestitures completed in fiscal 2013.

Fiscal 2014 Outlook

For fiscal 2014, the company has issued guidance for earnings from continuing
operations in the range of $7.35 to $8.15 per diluted share. Fiscal 2014
guidance includes an expected gain of approximately $1.50 per diluted share
associated with a previously announced joint venture agreement between Parker
Aerospace and GE Aviation and expenses related to possible restructuring of
approximately $100 million.

Washkewicz added, "Our current outlook is that throughout fiscal 2014, global
macro-economic conditions will remain relatively flat. As a result, we plan
to spend approximately $100 million to right size our global operations, which
we believe is prudent given these conditions. We will continue to manage our
business accordingly while executing the Win Strategy by investing in new
product development, expansion in emerging markets, and acquisitions to
strengthen our portfolio. These operational actions, combined with our
dividend, are expected to deliver strong returns for our shareholders."

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 the Industrial North America, Industrial International, and
Climate and Industrial Controls segments, and the year-over-year 12-month
rolling average of orders for the Aerospace segment.

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 and similar transactions, including the
anticipated closing of the previously announced joint venture with GE
Aviation; the determination to undertake business realignment activities and
the expected costs thereof and, if undertaken, the ability to complete such
activities and realize the anticipated cost savings from such activities;
ability to realize anticipated benefits from the consolidation of the Climate
and Industrial Controls Group;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.
