  • 10. 10  Consolidated sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 were $1.05 billion, up 13% from $926.5 million in the third quarter last year, based on strength in recreational vehicle (RV) sales. Net income for the third quarter was $43.8 million, up 6% from $41.3 million in the prior-year third quarter. Diluted earnings per share (EPS) for the third quarter was $0.82, up 5% from $0.78 in the third quarter last year.  Included in net income and EPS for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 were non-cash goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges of approximately $11.5 million. This included a $4.7 million intangible asset impairment charge triggered by the expected sale of the net assets associated with the Company’s ambulance product line, and a $6.8 million goodwill impairment charge relating to the bus segment reporting unit which historically included the ambulance product line. These charges reduced EPS by $0.15 for the quarter. Excluding these items, EPS would have been $0.97 for the quarter.  Total RV segment sales were $929.8 million, up 15% from $807.2 million in the third quarter last year. RV segment income before tax was $77.6 million, up 31% from $59.2 million in the prior-year period.  Towable RV sales were $742.5 million, up 9% from $680.5 million in the prior-year period. Income before tax was $62.5 million, up 22% from $51.1 million in the third quarter last year. Towable RV income before tax increased to 8.4% of revenues from 7.5% a year ago, as a result of increased volumes and specific actions taken to improve operating efficiencies.  Motorized RV sales were $187.3 million, up 48% from $126.7 million in the prior-year third quarter. Income before tax was $15.1 million, up 86% from $8.1 million last year. As a percent of revenues, motorized RV income before tax rose to 8.1% of revenues from 6.4% a year ago, driven by improved product mix, volumes and enhanced operating efficiencies.  Bus segment sales were $119.4 million, up slightly from $119.3 million in the third quarter last year. Income before tax was a loss of $7.7 million, compared to income of $2.8 million in the third quarter last year. Bus segment income before tax was unfavorably impacted by the non-cash impairment charges relating to goodwill and intangibles of approximately $11.5 million. Comments on 3rd Quarter 2013 Results
