For the first quarter,

Electrical segment net sales
in the first quarter of 2013 increased 2 percent to $515.3 million. The
increase was due to acquisitions, which contributed 3 percent to sales in the
quarter. Hubbell’s power segment net sales in the first quarter of 2013 were
$224.8 million compared to $218.7 million reported in the first quarter of
2012.

results were in line with our expectations with sales increasing 2 percent
compared to the prior year,” said David G. Nord, president and CEO, in a press
release. From a profitability perspective, Hubbell reported operating margin of
13.2 percent, below last year due to costs of approximately $2 million
associated with facility consolidations in its power segment and lower sales of
higher margin industrial products.
