MSC INDUSTRIAL SUPPLY CO.

Erik Gershwind, president and chief executive officer, said, "While the demand environment remained difficult in our first quarter and pricing remained soft, we saw a better than expected November. As we moved into December, the start of our fiscal second quarter, we saw growth in sales, as well as improvement across all of our customer types and a higher mix of machinery, machine tool accessories, tool holders, and tooling package orders. These capital-related sales have historically increased when customers are more optimistic about investing in their businesses."

Rustom Jilla, executive vice president and chief financial officer, added, "Our first quarter operating margin of 13.2 percent improved over the prior year period despite lower sales, with stable gross margins and continued expense discipline, which offers a glimpse into our leverage potential. Diluted earnings per share were 3 cents above the mid-point of our guidance, with approximately 2 cents from higher than expected sales and the remainder as a result of tight expense management. Our EPS also increased 6 cents year-over-year due to lower operating expenses and last August's share buyback. Finally, our cash flow conversion remained strong, with 139 percent of our net income translating into cash flow from operations."

Gershwind concluded, "We have operated in the midst of a prolonged industrial recession, one that was particularly acute in our primary end markets of metalworking manufacturing. We are, however, seeing signs of greater optimism. At present, it appears that there is a leveling in manufacturing occurring and, in December, we saw greater spending on categories that are indicative of customer optimism. We are certainly more positive than even a few short months ago. Even so, we would need to see sustained increases in order activity before we declare that the environment has turned."

Outlook

Based on current market conditions, the Company expects net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 to be between $688 million and $701 million. At the midpoint, average daily sales are expected to increase roughly 1.5%, as compared to last year's second quarter. The Company expects diluted earnings per share for the fiscal second quarter 2017 to be between $0.86 and $0.90.
