Quoting Management: “PACCAR reported improved revenues and net income for the second quarter of 2011,” said Mark Pigott, chairman and chief executive officer. “PACCAR’s results reflect the benefits of stronger truck sales in North America and Europe and an improvement in aftermarket parts sales and financial services worldwide. Strong worldwide truck industry demand and a robust increase in truck build rates have created challenges for some suppliers. PACCAR is working closely with its suppliers to increase their production capacity in the next several months,” Pigott added.
The company has enjoyed double-digit year-over-year percentage revenue growth for the past five quarters. Over that span, the company has averaged growth of 38.7%, with the biggest boost coming in the most recent quarter when revenue rose 50.3% from the year earlier quarter.
The company has now seen net income rise in three straight quarters. In the first quarter, net income rose more than twofold and in the fourth quarter of the last fiscal year, the figure rose more than threefold.
The company fell short of estimates last quarter after beating the mark the quarter before with net income of 53 cents versus a mean estimate of net income of 49 cents per share.
