Home News Interface quarterly income more than doubles

Atlanta — Interface said its fourth quarter net income  was $15.3 million, or $0.23 per share, versus $7.4 million, or $0.11 per share, in the fourth quarter last year.

Sales for the quarter were $251.7 million, up slightly from sales of $249.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. 

”We had a reasonably good finish to the year, as our expectations for fourth quarter growth were somewhat tempered by the softened order level we saw for a few weeks in the previous quarter,” said Daniel T. Hendrix, chief executive officer. 

”Our Americas business continued its gradual but steady growth in the fourth quarter, gaining additional share in a U.S. commercial market that has yet to see a true rebound.”

For the year, net income was $48.3 million, or $0.73 per share, compare to net income of $5.9 million, or $0.09 per share in 2012.

 Sales for the year were $960.0 million, compared with $932.0 million in 2012. 

”We are carrying good momentum into 2014, with orders firming in the Americas and Europe, and we’re seeing a much improved pipeline of project activity compared with a year ago,” Hendrix said.

 “We have, however, seen some impact in the first six weeks from extreme winter weather in the U.S. and an early Chinese New Year.”
