CLEVELAND, Aug. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crawford United Corporation (OTC: CRAWA), a growth-oriented holding company serving diverse markets, today reported results for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2022.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2022, sales were $31.9 million compared to $26.4 million in the same period last year, an increase of 21%. In this quarter, the Company recorded operating income of $2.4 million compared to $2.1 million in the same period last year, an increase of 12%. Net income was $1.2 million, or $0.34 per fully diluted share, compared to $1.2 million, or $0.37 per fully diluted share in the second quarter of last year. For the quarter, net income and earnings per share were negatively impacted by $0.6 million of unrealized losses on non-operating strategic investments in equity securities.

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, sales were $62.9 million compared to $50.4 million in the same period last year, an increase of 25%. For the six-month period, the Company recorded operating income of $3.8 million compared to $4.4 million in the same period last year. Net income was $2.2 million, or $0.65 per fully diluted share, compared to $4.4 million, or $1.29 per fully diluted share in the first six months of last year. The decreases in operating income, net income and earnings per share for the six month period were due in part to non-cash stock awards valued at $0.9 million in the current year compared to $0.3 million in the same period last year, based on the substantially higher share price this year. In addition, net income and earnings per share in the first half of 2021 were higher due in part to forgiveness of debt in the amount of $1.5 million under the CARES Act.

For the quarter and the six months ended June 30, 2022, the increase in revenue was attributable to organic growth in each of the company’s operating segments, as well as the acquisitions of Emergency Hydraulics in July 2021, Reverso Pumps and Separ Filters of America in January 2022, and Knitting Machinery Company of America in May 2022.

Brian Powers, President and CEO, stated, “We are pleased with the ongoing growth of our company and remain confident in our ability to achieve long-term strategic priorities. Crawford United is continuing to explore opportunities for increased revenue and improved profitability, always with an eye towards additional acquisitions.”
