Houston Wire & Cable Company Declares Dividend for the First Quarter of 2014

Houston Wire & Cable Company declared a dividend of $0.12 per share for the first quarter of 2014.

Houston Wire & Cable Company Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2014

Houston Wire & Cable Company reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014. For the period, the company reported sales of $100,299,000 against $94,304,000 for the same period in the last year. Operating income was $6,348,000 against $6,386,000 for the same period in the last year. Income before income taxes was $6,080,000 against $6,113,000 for the same period in the last year. Net income was $3,745,000 against $3,862,000 for the same period in the last year. Earnings per basic and diluted share were $0.21 against $0.22 for the same period in the last year. Net cash used in operating activities was $7,012,000 against net cash provided by operating activities of $12,049,000 for the same period in the last year. Expenditures for property and equipment were $655,000 against $274,000 for the same period in the last year. The company reported first quarter sales levels represented a 6% increase over the prior year quarter, or 10% as adjusted for fluctuations in metals prices, and a 6% increased sequentially. These results are primarily due to improved regional performances, including contributions from territories that had under-performed in 2013, increased project activity and continued Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO) growth. Despite these enhanced contributions from certain regions, however, there are still areas of the country where demand remains sluggish and shows minimal signs of recovery.
