Airgas Issues Q2 2013 EPS Guidance Below Analysts' Estimates; Lowers FY 2013 EPS Guidance


Wednesday, 25 Jul 2012 07:30am EDT 

Airgas announced that for the second quarter of 2013, it expects adjusted earnings per diluted share (EPS) to increase 2% to 6% from $1.03 in the prior year to $1.05 to $1.09, which reflects an estimated year-over-year decline of $0.02 from the impact of lost sales due to helium supply chain constraints, as well as $0.10 of SAP implementation costs and depreciation expense compared to $0.07 of expense in the prior year. For fiscal 2013, the Company expects adjusted EPS to increase 13% to 16% from $4.11 in fiscal 2012 to $4.65 to $4.75, which reflects the impact of two less selling days in fiscal 2013, an estimated year-over-year decline of $0.10 from the impact of lost sales due to helium supply constraints, as well as approximately $0.12 to $0.16 of SAP implementation costs and depreciation expense, net of expected benefits. Fiscal 2013 guidance excludes restructuring charges and other special charges. According to I/B/E/S Estimates, analysts on an average are expecting the Company to report EPS of $1.20 for the second quarter of 2013; EPS of $4.80 for fiscal 2013.
