ITEM 1. NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

NOTE A—BASIS OF PRESENTATION OF FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2012. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, from which related information herein has been derived.

On April 28, 2011, the Company declared a five-for-four split of its common shares in the form of a distribution of one additional common share for each four common shares previously issued. The distribution was made on June 10, 2011. Accordingly, all share amounts and per share data throughout this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q have been adjusted retroactively to reflect the stock split.

In June 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) ASU 2011-05, Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Presentation of Comprehensive Income. ASU 2011-05 amends existing guidance by allowing only two options for presenting the components of net income and other comprehensive income: (1) in a single continuous financial statement, statement of comprehensive income or (2) in two separate but consecutive financial statements, consisting of an income statement followed by a separate statement of other comprehensive income. Also, items that are reclassified from other comprehensive income to net income must be presented on the face of the financial statements. ASU 2011-05 requires retrospective application, and is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011, with early adoption permitted. In December 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-12 indefinitely deferring its requirement related to the presentation of reclassification adjustments only. The Company adopted this accounting standard in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 and elected to present the components of net income and other comprehensive income in two separate but consecutive statements.

NOTE B—INVENTORIES

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market. The costs for approximately 79% of inventories at March 31, 2012 and 82% at December 31, 2011 are determined using the last-in, first-out (LIFO) method, with the remainder determined using the first-in, first-out (FIFO) method. An actual valuation of inventory under the LIFO method is made at the end of each year based on the inventory levels and costs at that time. Interim LIFO calculations are based on management’s estimate of expected year-end inventory levels and costs and are subject to the final year-end LIFO inventory valuation.

NOTE D—PENSION AND OTHER POSTRETIREMENT BENEFITS

The Company sponsors a defined benefit pension plan covering several locations. Additionally, the Company sponsors defined contribution pension plans at two other locations not participating in the defined benefit pension plan.

A 401(k) plan that includes a partial Company match is also available. For the locations covered by the defined benefit pension plan, employees hired after January 1, 2008 participate in an enhanced 401(k) plan instead of the defined benefit pension plan. Benefits are based on the employee’s age and years of service with the Company. Employees hired prior to January 1, 2008 were not affected by the change.

The Company also sponsors a non-contributory defined benefit health care plan that provides certain health benefits to substantially all retirees and their spouses. The Company funds the cost of these benefits as incurred.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Executive Overview and Outlook

The Gorman-Rupp Company is a leading designer, manufacturer and international marketer of pumps and related equipment (pump and motor controls) for use in diverse water, wastewater, construction, industrial, petroleum, original equipment, agriculture, fire protection, heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), military and other liquid-handling applications. The Company attributes its success to long-term product quality, application and performance combined with delivery and service, and continually develops initiatives to improve performance in these key areas.

Gorman-Rupp actively pursues growth opportunities through organic growth, international business opportunities and acquisitions. We continually invest in training for our employees, new product development and modern manufacturing equipment and technology designed to increase production efficiency and capacity and drive growth by delivering innovative solutions to our customers. The Company also is currently focused on incorporating significantly changing engine designs related to new emission standards mandated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) into our applicable products. These new governmental regulations have added, and will continue to add, additional costs to engine-driven pump products.

Net sales during the first quarter ended March 31, 2012 increased 22.3% to a record $102.8 million compared to $84.1 million during the same period in 2011. International sales increased 17.5% and were 31.0% of total sales in the first quarter 2012. Primary increases in sales were in the construction, industrial, original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and agricultural markets, while municipal sales were flat primarily due to decreased sales of pumps supplied for domestic flood control projects as compared to the first quarter 2011. Net income increased 43.9% to a record $10.2 million compared to $7.1 million in the first quarter 2011. Earnings per share were $0.49 and $0.34 for the respective periods.

Record shipments during the quarter, less intense demand for pumps in natural gas drilling applications and lower incoming orders for the municipal market resulted in a backlog of $139.1 million at March 31, 2012, a 1.4% decrease from a year ago and 10.5% lower than the backlog of $155.5 million at December 31, 2011. Working capital increased 5.9% from December 31, 2011 to a record $111.2 million at March 31, 2012 primarily due to increased current accounts receivable as a result of the increase in net sales.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS — CONTINUED

 

We believe that the Company is well positioned to grow organically at generally comparable operating margins over the long term by expanding our customer base both domestically and globally and through new product offerings. We expect that the increasing need for water and wastewater infrastructure rehabilitation within the United States, and similar needs internationally, along with increasing demand for pumps and pump related equipment for industrial and agricultural applications, will provide excellent opportunities for Gorman-Rupp in the future.

Net sales

   $ 102,825       $ 84,074       $ 18,751         22.3

Sales increased across all major markets the Company serves except municipal. The largest increases were in the construction and industrial markets of $4.7 million and $4.5 million, respectively, primarily due to volume growth related to the expansion and replacement of heavy equipment user fleets and oil and gas drilling. Sales into the OEM market increased $2.9 million related to increased power generation demand and sales into the agriculture market increased $2.6 million primarily due to high commodity prices and favorable weather conditions in the United States. In addition, sales increased $1.5 million in the fire protection market and $1.4 million in the petroleum market. Municipal sales were flat primarily due to decreased sales of pumps supplied for domestic flood control projects as compared to the first quarter 2011.

Working capital increased 5.9% from December 31, 2011 to a record $111.2 million at March 31, 2012 primarily due to increased current accounts receivable as a result of the increase in net sales. The Company’s days sales in accounts receivable, days in accounts payable and inventory turnover ratios were:

     2012      2011      2010  

Days sales in accounts receivable

     53         57         55   

Days in accounts payable

     29         28         28   

Inventory turnover ratio

     2.3         2.4         2.2   

The increase in cash provided by operating activities of $820,000 in the first three months of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011 was primarily due to growth in sales and related operating results.

During first quarter 2012, investing activities consisted primarily of investments in machinery and equipment. Capital expenditures for the full year 2012, consisting principally of machinery and equipment, are estimated to be $14 to $17 million and are expected to be financed through internally generated funds and existing lines of credit.

Net cash used for financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2012 consisted of dividend payments of $1.9 million. The ratio of current assets to current liabilities was 3.0 to 1 at March 31, 2012 and 3.1 to 1 at December 31, 2011.

The Company currently expects to continue its long history of paying regular quarterly dividends and increased annual dividends. However, any future dividends will be reviewed individually and declared by our Board of Directors at its discretion, dependent on our assessment of the Company’s financial condition and business outlook at the applicable time.
