Q3 Sales Rise 5.3% at Zep

July 2, 2013

Recent acquisitions help financial boost.

Zep Inc. reported financial results for the three-month period ended May 31, 2013. Net sales grew 5.3% to $186.0 million.
 
“Our third quarter provided mixed financial results. I am very pleased that free cash flow generated in the quarter was an impressive 260% of net income. I am however, very disappointed in our lower earnings per share, even recognizing that more than half of the decline was occasioned by our planned inventory reduction,” said John K. Morgan, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Zep Inc. 
 
Q3 net sales included $17.9 million from acquisitions (Zep Vehicle Care and Mykal Industries), which were accretive to earnings in the quarter. This was partially offset by an $8.5 million decline in all other areas, for a net increase of $9.4 million in the quarter.
 
Morgan added, “Progress has been made transforming our business through both acquisitions and organic initiatives in key markets. The integration of Zep Vehicle Care is on-track and has been contributing positively to our operating results.”
