CLEVELAND, July 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE: PH) today reported record fourth-quarter and full-year results for the fiscal year ended June 30, with an 18.6-percent increase in annual net income of $368.2 million, or $3.31 per diluted share. Revenues for the year were $5.36 billion, up eight percent from last year's sales record. In fiscal 1999, the company earned $310.5 million in net income, or $2.83 per diluted share, on sales of $4.96 billion.
The full-year results reflect a good balance of internal and external growth, including 10-percent core sales growth in the company's North American industrial segment, where acquisitions completed in the second half of the year contributed another 4.4 percent. Acquisitions accounted for the 2.7 percent sales growth in Parker's International Industrial business, as weak first-half demand and currency translations negatively affected sales. Aerospace reported a drop in sales as anticipated, although the one-percent decline was certainly better than expected, as slowing large aircraft sales were offset by strengthening demand for maintenance, repair and overhaul equipment and solid growth in original-equipment system sales for regional and business jets.
Parker's North American industrial segment led the earnings improvement posting a 27-percent gain in operating income for the year. Operating income in the International Industrial and Aerospace businesses were relatively flat as a result of the lower sales and business realignment charges recorded in the first half of the fiscal year.
"We entered into this year making alignments where we needed to in our business, and the past two quarters have been our most profitable ever," said Chairman and CEO Duane Collins. "Parker employees turned out a good year of performance, with consistency and discipline through the cycle that positioned us to finish the year very well."
The company generated a record $538 million in cash from operations during the year, up 17 percent from last year's record. This cash was utilized for several acquisitions completed during the fiscal year, leaving borrowing capacity available to finance additional acquisitions, including the Wynn's International deal completed just over a week ago.
Fourth-quarter net income was $113 million, or 99 cents per diluted share, on sales of $1.48 billion, compared with $92.3 million, or 84 cents per diluted share, earned on sales of $1.29 billion last year.
Across-the-board growth in the domestic and International Industrial businesses contributed to double-digit increases in sales and income during the quarter, while Aerospace posted higher income on sales 3.8- percent lower than last year, when aircraft builds reached their peak.
Collins said the company's fourth-quarter performance and continuing strong order trends provide a good foundation for it to meet or exceed accelerated growth targets the company recently adopted, including 10-percent sales growth. "We've added significant growth capacity with acquisitions we made during the past year, and we know what we've got to do to integrate these businesses and deliver on our objectives. Our Hydraulics and Filtration Groups are right on track in the integration of their new businesses, and our Seal Group has plans in place to successfully integrate Wynn's."
In addition to integrating acquisitions, Collins said the company will continue to implement profitability improvements in Europe, expanding low-cost production capacity and reducing selling, general and administrative expenses.
"We recently adopted our strategic plan, and have everything in place to grow market share and achieve returns at a consistent premium among competitors and peers. Our focus remains on premier customer service, financial performance and profitable growth, and we have the organization and financial means to achieve much more as both the premier systems supplier and consolidator of choice."
