POOLCORP Reports Record Q2 Results

Scott Webb Headshot

Pool Corporation today reported record results for the second quarter of 2013.

"Our second quarter results were bolstered by strong performances in our largest, year-round markets and growth in pool refurbishment and replacement activities. Most seasonal markets lagged given the late start to this year's season as noted in our June 18th press release," said Manuel Perez de la Mesa, President and CEO.

Net sales for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 increased 4% to a record $790.4 million, compared to $757.2 million in the second quarter of 2012, with base business sales also up 4% for the period. The impact of weather on PoolCorp’s second quarter results is evidenced by sales growth of approximately 9% on average in the company’s largest, year-round markets while sales in its more seasonal markets remained flat overall. 

POOLCORP is the largest wholesale distributor of swimming pool and related backyard products. Currently, the company operates 321 sales centers in North America and Europe, through which it distributes more than 160,000 national brand and private label products to roughly 80,000 wholesale customers.
