CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA, February 5, 2015 - Carlisle Companies Incorporated (NYSE:CSL) reported net sales from continuing operations of $790.0 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2014, a 9.1% increase from $724.0 million in the fourth quarter 2013.  Organic sales growth was 6.0%.  The acquisition of LHi Technology (“LHi”) reported in the Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CIT) segment contributed 3.6% to sales in the fourth quarter.  The negative impact on net sales from fluctuations in foreign exchange was 0.5%.

 

Income from continuing operations in the fourth quarter 2014 declined 12% to $53.2 million, or $0.81 per diluted share, compared with $60.2 million, or $0.92 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter 2013, reflecting higher costs at Carlisle Construction Materials (CCM), lower net sales and EBIT (earnings before interest and income taxes) at Carlisle Brake & Friction (CBF) and a higher effective tax rate in the fourth quarter of 2014 versus the prior year.

 

For the full year 2014, Carlisle reported record net sales from continuing operations of $3.20 billion, an 8.9% increase from $2.94 billion for the prior year.  Higher net sales in 2014 reflected organic sales growth of 7.9% and acquired growth of 0.9%.   For the full year 2014, Carlisle reported record income from continuing operations of $251.7 million, or $3.83 per diluted share, a 7.0% increase over income of $235.2 million, or $3.61 per diluted share, in 2013.  Results for 2013 include a tax benefit of $11.8 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, from the release of a deferred tax liability from an election in a foreign jurisdiction.
