MEMPHIS, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 21, 2011--Thomas & Betts Corporation (NYSE:TNB) today reported consolidated sales of $566.3 million for the second quarter 2011, a 13.3% year-over-year increase. Excluding acquisitions, sales increased 11%. Increased volumes in all segments contributed to the sales increase

.

Second quarter 2011 net earnings were $42.5 million or $0.80 per diluted share, excluding a $0.06 per share ($4.8 million pre-tax) benefit from legal settlements and a $0.04 per share ($3.1 million pre-tax) charge for on-going facility consolidations. This compares to net earnings of $0.67 per share in the second quarter 2010 excluding a $0.06 per share ($5.3 million pre-tax) charge for environmental remediation. GAAP net earnings from continuing operations were $0.82 and $0.61 per share in the second quarter of 2011 and 2010, respectively.

“Thomas & Betts delivered a very solid performance in the second quarter with earnings at the upper end of our targeted range,” said Dominic J. Pileggi, chairman and chief executive officer. “Demand evolved largely as we expected despite increasing competitive pressures in certain sectors. We continued to execute our global vertical market strategies, refine our manufacturing footprint and take action to manage price / cost parity, allowing us to continue to deliver a compelling value proposition to our customers and helping us achieve growth across all of our key markets and geographies.”

SEGMENT HIGHLIGHTS:

Consolidated segment earnings were $103.0 million or 18.2% of sales, compared to $94.7 million or 18.9% of sales last year. Both periods exclude unusual items. The decline in segment margin reflects significantly lower Steel Structures segment margins resulting from project mix and a very competitive pricing environment.

Electrical:

Second quarter 2011 Electrical segment sales increased 12.7% to $483.8 million. Excluding acquisitions, sales increased 10% with organic growth contributing approximately four percentage points and the remainder from favorable foreign currency and price increases taken to offset rising raw material costs. Increased demand for industrial and, to a lesser extent, utility products drove the organic sales growth although construction products also saw modest organic growth during the quarter.
