Herman Miller shares jump on strong 4Q report

Friday 24 June 2011

Shares of Herman Miller Inc. rose nearly 8 percent on Thursday after the office-furniture maker reported strong fourth-quarter results on rising orders.
The company reported fourth-quarter net income increased four-fold as demand improved for its design-focused and ergonomic products. Revenue rose 37 percent to $441.5 million. Results handily topped analyst forecasts.
Office furniture makers were particularly hard hit during the recession as businesses cut back on big-ticket items, but a turnaround is in the works. The quarter marks the fourth consecutive quarter that Herman Miller, based in Zeeland, Mich., has reported double-digit or higher earnings increases.
Given the sizable fourth-quarter earnings beat, improving operating leverage, robust order growth, and the likelihood that fiscal first-quarter guidance will compare favorably with Street estimates, analysts expect Herman Miller shares to move higher in Thursday's early trading,.
Herman Miller's stock price rose $2.01, or 8.4 percent, to $26.01 in midday trading. The stock has traded between $16.23 and $28.14 over the past 52 weeks.
