II-VI Incorporated Reports Fiscal Second Quarter Earnings

2013-01-22 06:55 ET - News Release

PITTSBURGH, Jan. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- II-VI Incorporated (Nasdaq:IIVI) today reported results for its second fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2012.

During the second quarter, the Company completed three acquisitions:

November 1, 2012 M Cubed Technologies, Inc. (M Cubed)
December 3, 2012 The thin-film filter business and interleaver product line of Oclaro, Inc. (the Oclaro Business and Product Line)
December 21, 2012 LightWorks Optics, Inc. (LightWorks)

M Cubed joined the Advanced Products Group segment, the Oclaro Business and Product Line became a part of Photop Technologies, Inc. in the Near-Infrared Optics segment, and LightWorks joined the Military & Materials segment.

Bookings for the second quarter increased 9% to $127,134,000 compared to $116,883,000 in the second quarter of last fiscal year. Bookings for the six months ended December 31, 2012 decreased 2% to $241,527,000 compared to $247,130,000 for the same period last fiscal year. Bookings are defined as customer orders received that are expected to be converted into revenues during the next 12 months.

Revenues for the second quarter decreased 1% to $125,889,000 from $126,757,000 in the second quarter of last fiscal year. Revenues for the six months ended December 31, 2012 decreased 3% to $258,181,000 from $265,130,000 for the same period last fiscal year.

Net earnings attributable to II-VI Incorporated for the quarter were $12,200,000, or $0.19 per share-diluted, compared to net earnings of $13,287,000, or $0.21 per share-diluted, in the second quarter of last fiscal year. For the six months ended December 31, 2012, net earnings attributable to II-VI Incorporated were $24,918,000, or $0.39 per share-diluted, compared to net earnings of $31,866,000, or $0.50 per share-diluted, for the same period last fiscal year.

Results include the following:

  • Transaction expenses related to our three recent acquisitions of $0.8 million, or $0.01 per share-diluted, for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and $1.1 million or $0.02 per share-diluted, for the six months ended December 31, 2012. These expenses are included in selling, general and administrative expenses in the attached condensed consolidated statements of earnings.
     
  • After-tax income of $3.7 million, or $0.06 per share-diluted, from a settlement with a former contract manufacturer for damages incurred in the October 2011 flooding in Thailand for the three and six months ended December 31, 2012. The majority of this settlement amount is included in other expense (income), net in the attached condensed consolidated statements of earnings.
     
  • Write-downs of tellurium and selenium inventory of $0.8 million, or $0.01 per share-diluted, and $1.3 million, or $0.02 per share-diluted, for the three and six months ended December 31, 2012, respectively. These amounts compare to write-downs of tellurium and selenium inventory of $2.2 million, or $0.03 per share-diluted, and $2.5 million, or $0.04 per share-diluted, for the three and six months ended December 31, 2011, respectively. These write-downs, taken by Pacific Rare Specialty Metals & Chemicals, Inc. (PRM), a business in the Military & Materials segment, were necessitated by declines in global raw material index pricing. This expense is included in cost of goods sold in the attached condensed consolidated statements of earnings.

Francis J. Kramer, president and chief executive officer said, "Revenues from our recent acquisitions during the quarter helped to offset demand weakness that we experienced during the last few weeks of the quarter. In the Military & Materials segment, PRM continues to adjust to lower index pricing and reduced demand for tellurium and selenium while experiencing start-up challenges with its new product line. In the Advanced Products Group, the addition of M Cubed bolstered revenues but those gains were offset by acquisition costs and lower demand for commercial products at Marlow Industries. Our tax rate increased due to the effect of changes in the mix of earnings sourced to higher tax jurisdictions and specific items that were required to be reported in the current quarter."

Kramer continued, "During the quarter we utilized our cash reserves and borrowing capacity to complete the acquisitions of three businesses whose technologies and expertise we are integrating into the II-VI family of companies. With these acquisitions we acquired over $36 million in backlog. Our financial and business fundamentals remain solid. Cash flow from operations year to date has increased 42% from the year-ago period."  

As discussed below under "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures," the Company is presenting non-GAAP financial measures in this release. Investors should consider adjusted measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Please refer to the attached reconciliation between GAAP and adjusted financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP and the non-GAAP adjusted financial measures.

Segment Information

The following segment information includes segment earnings (defined as earnings before income taxes, interest expense and other expense or income, net). Management believes segment earnings are a useful performance measure because they reflect the results of segment performance over which management has direct control. Effective July 1, 2012, the Company changed its segment reporting structure to include VLOC in the Company's Military & Materials segment. VLOC was previously reported in the Company's Near-Infrared Optics segment. All segment information presented in this earnings release has been retrospectively adjusted to include VLOC in the Military & Materials segment.

For the third fiscal quarter ending March 31, 2013, the Company currently forecasts revenues to range from $145 million to $150 million and earnings per share to range from $0.24 to $0.28. Comparable results for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 were revenues of $132.6 million and earnings per share of $0.22. For the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013, the Company expects revenues to range from $560 million to $570 million and earnings per share to range from $0.91 to $0.99. Comparable results for the year ended June 30, 2012 were revenues of $534.6 million and earnings per share of $0.94. As discussed in more detail below, actual results may differ from these forecasts due to various factors including, but not limited to, changes in product demand, competition and general economic conditions. 

Webcast Information

The Company will host a conference call at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, January 22, 2013 to discuss these results. The conference call will be broadcast live over the internet and can be accessed by all interested parties from the Company's web site at www.ii-vi.com as well as at http://tinyurl.com/ab46mr3.   A replay of the webcast will be available for 2 weeks following the call.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has disclosed adjusted financial measurements in this press release that present financial information that is not in accordance with GAAP. These measurements are not a substitute for GAAP measurements, although the Company's management does use these measurements as an aid in monitoring the Company's on-going financial performance. The adjusted Non-GAAP net earnings attributable to II-VI Incorporated and adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per share measure the earnings of the Company excluding unusual items that are considered by management to be outside of the normal on-going operations of the Company. There are limitations with the use of non-GAAP financial measures, including that non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies, that there can be no assurance that excluded items in the non-GAAP financial measures will not occur in the future and that there could be cash costs associated with items excluded in the non-GAAP financial measures. The Company compensates for these limitations by using these Non-GAAP financial measures as supplements to GAAP financial measures and by providing the reconciliations of the Non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures. Investors should consider adjusted measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
