Albert Nahmad, Watscos President & CEO stated: Watsco delivered another solid quarter of earnings growth from higher sales, improved selling margins and the continued effort of our business units to manage operating costs. We saw strength in sales of residential HVAC systems in the United States, which grew 17%, from a combination of strong unit demand and a better sales mix of higher-efficiency systems. Overall, our results represent a great finish to another excellent year.
It is important to note that the fourth quarter of each calendar year is highly seasonal due to the nature and timing of the replacement market for air conditioning, heating and refrigeration systems, which is strongest in the second and third quarters. Accordingly, the Companys fourth quarter financial results are disproportionately affected by this seasonality.

Operating income increased 21% to a record $271 million with operating margins improving 70 basis-points to 7.2%.
