April 27 (Reuters) - Diversified manufacturer Carlisle Cos Inc (CSL.N) posted better-than-expected quarterly results on higher sales at its engineered transportation solutions unit, but said it expects rising raw material costs to negatively impact its coming quarters.
For the first quarter, the company reported net income of $24.3 million, or 39 cents a share, compared with $6.6 million, or 11 cents a share, a year ago.
Net sales for the maker of specialty tires, wheels and aerospace cables rose 6 percent to $562 million.
Analysts on average were expecting the company to earn 26 cents a share on revenue of $503.1 million, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
Sales at its engineered transportation solutions segment rose 4 percent to $212.1 million.
Carlisle said it incurred consolidation and closure costs of $2.9 million for the quarter and expects an additional $17 million in related costs for the balance of 2010.
