Titan Machinery Sees 24% Increase in Q1 Sales

Titan Machinery says it saw a 23% increase in revenue for the first quarter of its 2024 fiscal year, totaling $570 million.

Equipment sales were $429 million in Q1 compared with $356 million last year; parts sales were $97 million compared with $69 million last year.

For the company’s construction segment, Q1 revenue was $72 million compared to $67 million for the same period last year. Revenue growth was primarily driven by a same-store sales increase of 9.9%. Increases were partially offset by lost sales contributions from the divestiture of Titan’s consumer products store in North Dakota in the fiscal first quarter of 2023, the company says.

Revenue for the company’s agriculture segment was $423 million compared to $319 million last year, driven by the acquisitions of Mark's Machinery in April 2022, Heartland Ag Systems in August 2022, and Pioneer Farm Equipment in February 2023.

"We are off to a solid start to fiscal 2024 with strong first quarter results consistent with our expectations going into the year. Notably, each of our operating segments achieved expansion in pre-tax margins versus the prior year period,” Chairman and CEO David Meyer said.  

“Our Agriculture segment continued to drive growth, reflecting healthy underlying industry fundamentals and strong customer demand. Our equipment business remains strong, albeit hampered by the constrained supply in key product categories. Our parts and service business also performed well, despite a later start to the planting season in some of our northern markets. We are poised for this momentum in our parts and service business to carry into our fiscal second quarter as our customers complete their spring field work.”
