SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--Carlisle Companies Incorporated (NYSE:CSL) reported record net sales of $1,071.7 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017, a 7.5% increase from $996.9 million in the second quarter of 2016. Net sales from acquisitions contributed a total of 4.2% to net sales in the quarter. Organic net sales grew 4.0% (organic net sales are defined as net sales excluding both sales from acquisitions within the last twelve months and the impact of changes in foreign exchange rates versus the U.S. Dollar). Foreign exchange had a negative impact to net sales of 0.7%.
Income from continuing operations in the second quarter 2017 declined 11% from the second quarter 2016 to $102.3 million. The quarterly decline was primarily due to sales and margin declines in the Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CIT) segment as a result of technology changes in aerospace in-flight communication and customer in-sourcing, and unfavorable price and raw material cost dynamics in the Carlisle Construction Materials (CCM) segment. Partially offsetting the year-over-year earnings decline were higher net sales volume at CCM, increased earnings at Carlisle FoodService Products (CFS) including the recent San Jamar acquisition, and savings from the Carlisle Operating System (COS). The quarter also included approximately $5.6 million of after-tax charges related to facility rationalization and plant restructuring projects at CIT and the Carlisle Brake & Friction (CBF) segments. On a per share basis, income from continuing operations in the second quarter 2017 decreased 10% to $1.58 per diluted share, from $1.75 per diluted share in the prior year.

D. Christian “Chris” Koch, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Carlisle’s second quarter of 2017 set a record mark for sales, surpassing the $1 billion mark in quarterly sales for the first time in Carlisle’s 100-year history. CCM continued to drive superior sales growth in a favorable U.S. commercial roofing market, and exceeded growth expectations during the first half of 2017. CCM continued to deliver solid EBIT performance despite challenging competitive pricing pressures and a rising raw material cost environment. The CFS team delivered another strong performance in the quarter driving record organic EBIT margins while continuing to make significant progress with the integration of San Jamar. Strong sales performance occurred at CBF, an encouraging sign that we may have reached the bottom of our four year downturn in global commodity markets and corresponding weakness in demand for off highway mobile equipment. CFT demonstrated solid improvements in the quarter, with the positive sales momentum expected to continue into the second half of the year.
“As expected, performance at CIT very closely resembled the first quarter of 2017. The commercial aerospace challenges described in the first quarter earnings release remained key contributors to the second quarter segment underperformance. Sales of legacy in-flight entertainment (IFE) products continued their decline throughout the quarter, while sales of satellite connectivity (IFC or SatCom) products increased approximately 50% sequentially, and are anticipated to improve sequentially for the next several quarters. On a positive note, outside of IFE and SatCom, the airframe, avionics, engine, test and measurement, and medical product lines are on track to meet our expectations for the year. CIT remains well-positioned to capitalize on future growth in their key markets, drive introduction of new products and continue to aggressively pursue operational efficiencies.
“As evidenced by the recent acquisitions of San Jamar (CFS), Arbo (CCM), and Drexel Metals (CCM), we continue to deploy capital in pursuit of accretive M&A opportunities. During the quarter, we paid $23.1 million in dividends, and repurchased $150.0 million of Carlisle shares. Consistent with our share repurchase philosophy, we would anticipate further share repurchases of approximately $100 million in the second half of 2017. In furtherance of our stated objectives to optimize our capital structure, we will continue to make investments in our businesses, return capital to shareholders through consistent quarterly dividends and share repurchases, and maintain flexibility with our balance sheet to support continued growth through acquisitions.
“Carlisle Construction Materials (CCM) achieved record net sales of $631.2 million, an 8.4% increase over prior year reflecting an organic net sales increase of 8.0% and acquisition growth of 0.7%. EBIT margin in the second quarter of 2017 was very strong at 20.4%. Sales volume was driven by high single digit growth experienced in the U.S. non-residential roofing markets. The year-over-year EBIT decline of 3.1% was primarily due to unfavorable price and raw material cost dynamics, partially offset by higher net sales volume and COS savings.
“On July 5th we announced the acquisition of Drexel Metals, Inc. (Drexel Metals), a leading provider of architectural standing seam metal roofing systems for commercial, institutional and residential applications. The Drexel Metals acquisition is consistent with CCM’s strategy of expanding into premium building envelope products in attractive growth markets. We are pleased to welcome the Drexel Metals team to Carlisle.
“Favorable conditions in the U.S. commercial roofing market are expected to continue throughout the year. For full year 2017, we are increasing CCM’s outlook to high single digit net sales growth rates from our previously stated mid-to-high single digit levels. CCM remains committed to maintaining price discipline in their markets.
“Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CIT) net sales in the second quarter 2017 declined 3.6% versus prior year reflecting acquisition growth of 7.3%, and an organic net sales decline of 10.7%. Fluctuations from foreign exchange had a negative impact to net sales of 0.2%. The organic net sales decrease was primarily due to softness experienced in the IFE markets, and lower volumes driven by the continued in-sourcing initiative by a large commercial aerospace customer. Second quarter EBIT declined 49% primarily related to the sales volume reductions, unfavorable mix, and $5.6 million of pre-tax facility rationalization and plant restructuring costs. Savings are expected to be generated from these operational efficiency improvement efforts beginning in 2018.
“The challenging IFE market conditions have been greater than originally estimated. The in-sourcing efforts by a large commercial aerospace customer have exceeded our previous estimates; moreover, within our customer segment, the pace of our ramp up of SatCom sales have not met previous expectations. Based on these three factors, the 2017 net sales outlook for CIT has been reduced from growing mid-single digits, to declining mid-single digits versus prior year.
“Carlisle FoodService Products (CFS) achieved record net sales of $87.8 million, a 38% increase over prior year reflecting acquisition growth of 36%, and an organic net sales increase of 2.6%. EBIT increased 48% to a record $12.1 million, including an earnings contribution of $2.6 million from the San Jamar acquisition. CFS recorded its eighth consecutive quarter of year-over-year organic sales and earnings growth.
“CFS remains focused on the execution of its strategies of operational excellence, sales growth, and the successful integration of San Jamar. We expect CFS to achieve 2017 full year net sales growth of approximately 40%, inclusive of San Jamar.
“Carlisle Fluid Technologies (CFT) net sales in the quarter increased 4.1% versus prior year reflecting organic sales growth of 7.9% offset by a 3.8% negative impact from foreign exchange rates. Sales volume increases in the Americas were driven by strong sales of standard products and systems in the general industrial and automotive refinishing end markets. Partially offsetting the Americas performance were lower volumes in Asia Pacific and EMEA primarily due to the timing of systems sales. Second quarter 2017 EBIT increased 2.7% driven by higher sales volume, COS savings, and non-recurring restructuring costs recorded in the second quarter of 2016 that did not repeat, partially offset by the continuation of ongoing investments to position the business for future growth and margin improvement.
“The outlook across CFT’s largest global end markets continue to showcase favorable conditions, and our expectations for net sales growth remain in the mid-single digit percent range for 2017.
“Carlisle Brake & Friction (CBF) net sales increased 9.0% in the quarter reflecting an organic net sales increase of 10.5% and a negative impact from fluctuations in foreign exchange rates of 1.5%. CBF experienced double digit sales growth in their key end markets of construction, agriculture, and mining. Collectively, the sales growth for these key end markets was approximately 22%. EBIT declined 71% as a result of unfavorable product mix, higher raw material costs, and $1.7 million of pre-tax costs related to the previously announced closure of the Tulsa, OK manufacturing facility.
“We remain cautiously optimistic that we have reached the bottom of the cycle in our key end markets, and look to see continuation of this improvement for the remainder of the year. The CBF team remains focused on driving sales growth from new products and customers, and we now expect CBF to achieve mid-single digit net sales growth in 2017.”
Koch concluded by stating, “In this our 100th anniversary year, we are planning for total net sales growth to be in the mid-to-high single digit percent range. The downward revision to the 2017 sales guidance is a result of the previously described challenges at CIT that are expected to continue throughout the remainder of the year. We expect capital expenditures will be approximately $125 to $150 million as investments identified for expansion at CCM, CIT, and CFT move forward, and the additional cost reduction improvements at CBF related to their footprint rationalization efforts continue. We remain favorably positioned with our liquidity and strong balance sheet to continue to pursue growth opportunities both organically and through acquisitions, while returning value to shareholders.”
Cash flow provided from operations of $134.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017 was $45.2 million lower than cash provided of $179.9 million for the prior year period primarily due to lower net income and an increase in cash usage for working capital to support organic sales growth.
Free cash flow (defined as cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures, and comprised of continuing and discontinued operations) was $68.6 million in the six months ended June 30, 2017, a decrease of $65.4 million versus the prior year. The decrease in free cash flow was primarily attributable to lower net income, a greater usage of cash for working capital, and higher capital expenditures versus the prior year. For the full year, we expect free cash flow conversion to be approximately 100%.
Net cash used in investing activities of $291.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017 included $225.9 million used primarily for the acquisitions of San Jamar and Arbo, net of cash acquired.
As of June 30, 2017, we had $139.8 million cash on hand and $890 million of availability under our revolving credit facility.
During the six months ended June 30, 2017, we utilized $150.0 million in cash to repurchase approximately 1.5 million shares of Carlisle stock. The year-to-date share repurchase activity occurred in the second quarter of 2017.
