TULSA, OK -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- AAON, Inc. (NASDAQ: AAON), today announced its operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2014. Sales in the first quarter were $76.4 million, up 14.3% from $66.8 million in 2013. Net income was $9.8 million, up 37.6% from $7.1 million in the same period a year ago. Earnings per diluted share in the first quarter of 2014 were $0.26, up 36.8% from $0.19 for the same period the previous year, based upon 37.1 million and 37.0 million shares outstanding at March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. All per share earnings and shares reflect the 3-for-2 stock split effective July 2, 2013.
Both sales and earnings in 2014 were all-time records for any first quarter in the history of AAON.
Further, it should be noted that income before taxes in 2014 was $14.3 million, up 71.0% from $8.3 million in the same period a year ago. The effective tax rates on these earnings were 31.3% and 14.6% in the first quarters of 2014 and 2013, respectively. Both such tax rates are abnormally low due to a change in method of accounting for state investment credits in 2014 and several retroactive Federal tax credits along with a change in estimated taxes in 2013. However, the differential in these tax rates greatly distorts the comparison of net income for the first quarters of 2014 and 2013. The current estimated 2014 effective tax rate is 34.0%.
Norman H. Asbjornson, President and CEO, stated, "The first quarter of 2014 gains in sales and income from operations primarily reflect increases in market share, volume and prices, in addition to a decline in cost of materials, with gross profit as a percent of sales increasing from 22.9% to 28.6%. SG&A expenses as a percent of sales decreased from 10.4% to 10.0%."
Mr. Asbjornson continued, "The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2014, was very strong, showing a current ratio of 3.3:1 (including cash and short-term investments totaling $51.6 million) and we remained debt free. However, our backlog decreased from a record high of $71.7 million at March 31, 2013 (which included an influx of orders in advance of a scheduled price increase), to $51.7 million at March 31, 2014 (which was not affected by any additional price increase)."
Mr. Asbjornson then said, "Based on the first quarter results and other relevant factors, we expect 2014 to produce higher sales and earnings than 2013."
Mr. Asbjornson next reported that, "Taking into account the Company's sustained period of profitability and mounting liquidity position, the Board of Directors of AAON has approved a 30% increase in its semi-annual cash dividend from $0.10 per share to $0.13 per share, starting with the next dividend payable on July 1, 2014, to stockholders of record on June 12, 2014."
The Company will host a conference call today at 4:15 P.M. Eastern Time to discuss the first quarter results. To participate, call 1-866-544-4631; or, for rebroadcast, call 1-866-245-6755 (code 845795).

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, will look at different existing uses of peer-to-peer data sharing and how it can become useful in a live session to...

The enterprise is being consumerized, and the consumer is being enterprised. Moore's Law does not matter anymore, the future belongs to business virtualization powered by invisible service architecture, powered by hyperscale and hyperconvergence, and facilitated by vertical streaming and horizontal scaling and consolidation. Both buyers and sellers want instant results, and from paperwork to paperless to mindless is the ultimate goal for any seamless transaction. The sweetest sweet spot in innovation is automation. The most painful pain point for any business is the mismatch between supplies a...

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Building actually breathes - immediately flagging overheating in a closet or over cooling in unoccupied ho...
