On a per share share basis, the company recorded earnings of $0.93 per share, higher than $0.85 per share last year.

The company reported net sales of $559.7 million for the first quarter compared with $577.7 million for the same quarter corresponding year.

The revenue was also affected by lower unit volume in the company's OEM segment.

Monday, Mueller Industries closed at $50.74 on the NYSE.
