  • Genuine Parts Co. Q4 Profit Rises 19%, Beats View; Revenue Misses; Raises Dividend 8.6% (GPC)

The company saw a rise in profit that beat the Wall Street view, but revenue came in below analysts' expectations. GPC also raised its quarterly dividend payout.

Tom Gallagher, CEO of Genuine Parts Company, said "Our total sales increase for the year was driven by respectable sales growth in three of our four businesses. The Automotive Group reported a 4% sales increase, led by solid progress in NAPA AutoCare and Major Accounts, our two primary commercial initiatives, combined with the incremental volume from the Quaker City acquisition. Motion Industries, our Industrial Group, increased sales by 7% for the year, driven by the combination of effective growth initiatives and a generally healthy industrial economy, although we did observe slower levels of manufacturing growth over the latter part of 2012. EIS, our Electrical/Electronic Group, was up 5% for the year." Gallagher went on to say, "As we turn our focus to the new year, we remain committed to our core objectives of growing sales and earnings, showing continued operating margin improvement, generating solid cash flows and maintaining a strong balance sheet. Further progress in each of these important areas will ensure another successful year in 2013." Also announced on Tuesday was that Genuine Parts declared an increase to its quarterly dividend.
