Ingersoll-Rand Co., the maker of Thermo King and Hussmann refrigeration equipment, said second- quarter profit rose 26 percent after acquiring air conditioner- maker Trane Inc.
Profit from continuing operations climbed to $262.5 million, or 90 cents a share, from $208 million, or 68 cents, a year earlier, matching analysts’ estimates. Sales grew 38 percent to $3.08 billion, the Hamilton, Bermuda-based company said today in a statement.
The results include about three weeks’ worth of sales from Trane. Ingersoll-Rand completed the $9.6 billion purchase June 5, creating a climate-control business that spans refrigerated truck parts, display cases and ventilation systems. The combined company is forecast to post sales of $17 billion this year as Chief Executive Officer Herbert Henkel expands the company’s industrial products after exiting construction machinery.
