W.W. Grainger, Inc.


SKU: GWW-1 Category:


W.W. Grainger, Inc. delivered mixed results for the previous quarter, with revenues below the analyst consensus. However, it managed to surpass/ exceed the earnings expectations of Wall Street. The total company has achieved an impressive 8.7% sales growth on a daily constant currency basis, driven by success in both segments. Notably, this growth remains stable compared to the previous quarter despite a decline in price contribution due to inflationary effects from the prior year. The company’s operating margin improved by 60 basis points, primarily attributed to the expanded gross margin in the High-Touch segment, which compensated for lower EA gross margin and a slight SG&A deleverage across the business. High-Touch Solutions continued to thrive at the segment level, achieving an 8.5% increase in daily constant currency sales, driven by growth across all geographies. Meanwhile, the Endless Assortment segment experienced a 4.3% increase in sales, or 9.2% on a daily constant currency basis, adjusting for currency fluctuations. Despite some macro-related softness in the Endless Assortment segment, WW Grainger remains committed to growth across its five key engines. The company continues to outperform the market, achieving roughly 550 basis points of outgrowth for the High-Touch Solutions US business in the quarter.
