APAC Improvements

The Asia Pacific (APAC) segment reported sales in the amount of USD$1.436 billion, an impressive 7% increase from the numbers reported in the prior year. A 10% growth in volume and a 1% price attainment drove underlying sales up by 11% primarily in the electronics and cyclical end markets, as well as project start-ups.

Further Details About APAC Segment

Volume stayed stable as weaker base volumes offset the contributions from project start-ups, with the base volumes being impacted primarily by seasonality. LIN’s divestitures were largely motivated by the accounting deconsolidation of a joint venture which saw sales suffer 11% compared to the prior year and 12% compared to the previous quarter. Earnings per share, however, were not impacted. Operating profit for the APAC segment came in at USD$351 million, comprising 24.4% of LIN sales and showing 240 basis point growth compared to the prior year.

Promising EMEA Segment Reports

LIN’s Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) segment generated USD$1.799 billion in sales, indicating a 10% improvement over the numbers reported in the prior year. An increase in demand from the healthcare end market in conjunction with 4% higher pricing drove underlying sales to grow by 4%. With slightly lower volumes having offset the 1% higher pricing, sequential underlying sales stayed constant.
