Trimble First Quarter 2011 Revenue of $384.3 Million up 20 Percent: Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share of $0.50 Up 47 Percent

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Apr. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) today announced first quarter 2011 revenue of $384.3 million up 20 percent as compared to the first quarter of 2010.  

Operating income for the first quarter of 2011 was $43.7 million, up 21 percent as compared to the first quarter of 2010.  Operating margin in the first quarter of 2011 was 11.4 percent, approximately flat compared to the first quarter of 2010.  

First quarter 2011 non-GAAP operating income of $70.1 million was up 23 percent as compared to the first quarter of 2010.  Non-GAAP operating margin was 18.2 percent compared to 17.9 percent in the first quarter of 2010.  

First quarter 2011 net income was $39.7 million, up 42 percent as compared to the first quarter of 2010.  Diluted earnings per share in the first quarter of 2011 were $0.32 as compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.23 in the first quarter of 2010.  

Non-GAAP net income of $62.5 million for the first quarter of 2011 was up 47 percent as compared to the first quarter of 2010.  Diluted non-GAAP earnings per share in the first quarter of 2011 were $0.50 as compared to diluted non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.34 in the first quarter of 2010. 

First quarter 2011 non-GAAP results exclude:

  • Restructuring expense of  $866 thousand as compared to $674 thousand in the first quarter of 2010;
  • Amortization of intangibles of $16.1 million as compared to $13.8 million in the first quarter of 2010;
  • Stock-based compensation expense of $6.8 million as compared to $5.6 million in the first quarter of 2010;
  • Acquisition-related inventory step-up charge of $508 thousand as compared to $71 thousand in the first quarter of 2010 and;
  • Non-recurring acquisition-related cost of $3.0 million as compared to $538 thousand in the first quarter of 2010.

"We continued to track against expectations in the first quarter," commented Steven W. Berglund, Trimble's president and chief executive officer.  "Engineering and Construction segment results reflected growth in all regions driven by increasing demand for survey and heavy and highway products as well as the increasing number of SITECH dealerships.  Field Solutions results reflected growth in both agricultural and GIS product sales.  Although Mobile Solutions showed higher revenue it did not produce operating margins consistent with our expectations," Berglund continued.  "At this point, we remain comfortable with our original outlook for the full year."  

Trimble Results by Business Segment

Segment operating income is revenue less cost of goods sold and operating expenses, excluding general corporate expenses, restructuring expenses, amortization of intangibles, amortization of acquisition-related inventory step-up charges and non-recurring acquisition costs.  Non-GAAP segment operating income also excludes the impact of stock-based compensation expense.

Engineering and Construction (E&C)

First quarter 2011 E&C revenue was $190.0 million, up 21 percent as compared to the first quarter of 2010, with growth across geographies and product lines. 

Operating income in E&C for the first quarter 2011 was $22.8 million, or 12.0 percent of revenue, as compared to $18.8 million or 11.9 percent of revenue in the first quarter of 2010.  Non-GAAP operating income was $25.1 million, or 13.2 percent of revenue, as compared to $20.5 million, or 13.0 percent of revenue, in the first quarter of 2010.  Non-GAAP operating margin was up slightly due to increased leverage, offset by higher investment in the VirtualSite Solutions joint venture with Caterpillar, increased marketing expenditures related to tradeshows and the impact of foreign exchange.

Field Solutions

First quarter 2011 Field Solutions revenue was $123.1 million, up 28 percent as compared to the first quarter of 2010 due to strength in both GIS and agricultural product sales.

First quarter 2010 Field Solutions operating income was $52.5 million, or 42.7 percent of revenue, as compared to $39.3 million, or 41.0 percent of revenue, in the first quarter of 2010.  Non-GAAP operating income was $53.0, or 43.1 percent of revenue, as compared to $39.8 million, or 41.5 percent of revenue, in the first quarter of 2010.  The increase in non-GAAP operating margin was due to higher revenue.

Mobile Solutions

First quarter 2011 Mobile Solutions revenue was $44.4 million, up 17 percent as compared to the first quarter of 2010 due primarily to acquisitions. 

The operating loss in Mobile Solutions in the first quarter 2011 was $1.3 million, or negative 3.0 percent of revenue, as compared to operating income of $1.9 million, or 5.0 percent of revenue, in the first quarter of 2010.  Non-GAAP operating loss was $338 thousand, or approximately break-even, as compared to a profit of $3.1 million, or 8.2 percent of revenue, in the first quarter of 2010.  The decline in non-GAAP operating margin was due to the mix of hardware and subscription services revenue, including the loss of a large high-margin customer in the second quarter of 2010, and the impact of acquisitions.

Advanced Devices

First quarter 2011 Advanced Devices revenue was $26.8 million, down 3 percent as compared to the first quarter of 2010 due to slower sales of timing products. 

The operating income in Advanced Devices for the first quarter 2011 was $3.9 million, or 14.4 percent of revenue, as compared to $5.6 million, or 20.4 percent of revenue, in the first quarter of 2010.  Non-GAAP operating income in Advanced Devices was $4.5 million, or 16.9 percent of revenue, as compared to $6.1 million, or 22.0 percent of revenue, in the first quarter of 2010.  The decline in non-GAAP operating margin was due to product mix.  

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To help our readers understand our past financial performance and our future results, we supplement the financial results that we provide in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, with non-GAAP financial measures. The specific non-GAAP measures which we use along with a reconciliation to the nearest comparable GAAP measures and the explanation for why management chose to exclude selected items and the additional purposes for which these non-GAAP measures are used can be found at the end of this release. The method we use to produce non-GAAP results is not computed according to GAAP and may differ from the methods used by other companies. Our non-GAAP results are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our management regularly uses our supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate our business, and to make operating decisions. These non-GAAP measures are among the primary factors management uses in planning for and forecasting future periods. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of our operations that, when viewed with our GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business. Management generally compensates for the limitations in the use of non-GAAP financial measures by relying on comparable GAAP financial measures and providing investors with a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure or measures. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP results, which is attached to this earnings release.  Additional financial information about our use of non-GAAP results can be found on the investor relations page of our Web site at http://investor.trimble.com.

Forward Looking Guidance

For the second quarter of 2011 Trimble expects revenue between $391 million and $396 million with GAAP earnings per share of $0.35 to $0.37 and non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.50 to $0.52. Non-GAAP guidance for the second quarter of 2011 excludes the amortization of intangibles of $16.0 million related to previous acquisitions and the anticipated impact of stock-based compensation expense of $6.8 million. Both GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per share assume a 15 to 17 percent tax rate and 126.8 million shares outstanding.

FOOTNOTES TO GAAP TO NON-GAAP RECONCILIATION


(Unaudited)


The non-GAAP financial measures included in the previous table are non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP non-operating income, net, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted net income per share and operating leverage, and non-GAAP segment operating income before corporate allocations.  These non-GAAP measures can be used to evaluate the Company's historical and prospective financial performance, as well as its performance relative to competitors.  The Company believes some of its investors track the Company's "core operating performance" as a means of evaluating the Company's performance in the ordinary, ongoing, and customary course of its operations.  Management also believes that looking at its core operating performance provides a supplemental way to provide consistency in period to period comparisons.  Accordingly, management excludes from non-GAAP those items relating to restructuring, amortization of purchased intangibles, stock based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related inventory step-up,  and non-recurring acquisition costs.  The Company does not believe that these items are indicative of its core operating performance.



( A )

Restructuring. Included in our GAAP presentation of cost of sales and operating expenses, restructuring costs recorded are primarily for employee compensation resulting from reductions in employee headcount in connection with our company restructurings.  We exclude restructuring costs from our non-GAAP measures because we believe they are not indicative of our core operating performance.









( B )

Amortization of purchased intangibles.  Included in our GAAP presentation of cost of sales and operating expenses, amortization of purchased intangibles recorded arises from prior acquisitions and are non-cash in nature.  We exclude these expenses from our non-GAAP measures because we believe they are not indicative of our core operating performance.









( C )

Stock-based compensation. Included in our GAAP presentation of cost of sales and operating expenses, stock-based compensation consists of expenses for employee stock options and awards and purchase rights under our employee stock purchase plan.  We exclude stock-based compensation expense from our non-GAAP measures because some investors may view it as not reflective of our core operating performance as it is a non-cash expense.   For the three months ended April 1, 2011 and April 2, 2010, stock-based compensation was allocated as follows:

( D )

Amortization of acquisition-related inventory step-up.  The purchase accounting entries associated with our business acquisitions require us to record inventory at its fair value, which is sometimes greater than the previous book value of the inventory.  Included in our GAAP presentation of cost of sales, the increase in inventory value is amortized to cost of sales over the period that the related product is sold.  We exclude inventory step-up amortization from our non-GAAP measures because we do not believe it is indicative of our core operating performance.









( E )

Non-recurring acquisition (gains) costs.  Included in our GAAP presentation of operating expenses and non-operating income, net, non-recurring acquisition (gains) costs consist of external and incremental costs resulting directly from merger and acquisition activities such as legal, due diligence and integration costs.  Also included are unusual acquisition related items such as an adjustment to a previous gain on bargain purchase (resulting from the fair value of identifiable net assets acquired exceeding the consideration transferred), adjustments to the fair value of earnout liabilities and payments made or received to settle earnout and holdback disputes.  We exclude these items because they are non-recurring and unique to specific acquisitions and are not indicative of our core operating performance.









( F )

Income tax effect on non-GAAP adjustments.   This amount adjusts the provision for income taxes to reflect the effect of the non-GAAP items (A) - (E) on non-GAAP net income.









( G )

Stock-based compensation. The amounts consist of expenses for employee stock options and awards and purchase rights under our employee stock purchase plan. As referred to above we exclude stock-based compensation here because investors may view it as not reflective of our core operating performance.  However, management does include stock-based compensation for budgeting and incentive plans as well as for reviewing internal financial reporting. We discuss our operating results by segment with and without stock-based compensation expense, as we believe it is useful to investors.  Stock-based compensation not allocated to the reportable segments was approximately $2.3 million and $1.8 million for the three months ended April 1, 2011 and April 2, 2010, respectively.
