Declined sales of Roper´s Fluid Handling

13.12.2002

Roper Industries reports that the net sales of the Fluid Handling segment declined 16% to $105 million in 2002, primarily resulting from the collapse of the semiconductor market.

A slowdown in power generation, industrial and oil & gas exploration markets also affected full year results and contributed to a 7% decline in fourth quarter sales from the prior year to $27 million. 2002 segment bookings of $104 million were down 14% from the prior year; fourth quarter bookings fell 10% as compared with the prior year period.

Gross margins in 2002 were 46.2%, and operating margins remained strong at 20.4%, despite the decrease in revenues. In response to declining revenues, segment employment levels were trimmed 5% during the year.
