National Presto Industries Inc. Announces Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2014

National Presto Industries Inc. announced earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014. For the period the company reported that sales increased by $3,364,000 or 4% from the $83,190,000 enjoyed during the prior year’s comparable quarter primarily as a result of a 24% increase in Defense segment shipments. That increase was due in significant part to the shipment of a portion of the backlog acquired during last year’s acquisition of assets from DSE, the segment’s 40MM ammunition competitor, partially offset by a decline in the manufacture and shipment of cartridge cases at its Amron division, as a result of U.S. defense cutbacks. The increase was further offset by a 22.2% reduction of Housewares/Small Appliance segment shipments. Net earnings were $4,690,000 against $6,854,000 a year ago. Net earnings per share was $0.68 against $0.99 a year ago.
