Franklin Electric Reports Record First Quarter 2023 Results
Fort Wayne, IN – May 2, 2023 – Franklin Electric Co. Inc. today announced first quarter financial results for fiscal year 2023.
First quarter 2023 sales were $484.6 million, compared to first quarter 2022 sales of $451.5 million. First quarter 2023 operating income was $52.6 million, compared to first quarter operating income in 2022 of $39.9 million. First quarter 2023 GAAP fully diluted EPS was $0.79, versus GAAP fully diluted EPS in the first quarter 2022 of $0.63.
“The Franklin Electric team delivered a strong start to 2023 with records for first quarter sales, operating income and earnings per share. Overall, demand remains seasonally robust, and we continue to make progress with managing and improving our supply chain. Strong shipments during the quarter drove top-line sales and operating leverage resulting in year-over-year operating margin expansion and a more normal backlog which decreased sequentially by $30 million.” Commented Gregg Sengstack, Franklin Electric’s Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer.
“While the demand environment remains healthy across each of our businesses, we are mindful of the ongoing macroeconomic and geopolitical pressures that are expected to persist throughout 2023. Our strong first quarter results give us confidence as we move to the busy season for our business.” Concluded Mr. Sengstack.
