Richardson Electronics Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2013 Results and Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend

Richardson Electronics, Ltd. (NASDAQ: RELL) today reported sales and earnings for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 1, 2013. The Company also announced that its Board of Directors declared a $0.06 per share quarterly cash dividend.

Fiscal 2013 Results

Net sales for fiscal 2013 were $141.1 million, a 10.6% decrease compared to net sales of $157.8 million in the prior year. Gross margin was down slightly at 29.5% during fiscal 2013, compared to 29.6% during fiscal 2012. Operating expenses were $41.5 million, compared to $40.6 million during fiscal 2012. Operating income for fiscal 2013 was breakeven, compared to operating income for fiscal 2012 of $6.3 million. The operating income for fiscal 2013 included $1.2 million of employee-related termination costs and $1.0 million of unabsorbed labor and overhead costs.

Net income for fiscal 2013 was $1.2 million, or $0.08 per diluted common share, compared to net income for fiscal 2012 of $8.5 million or $0.50 per diluted common share. Net income for fiscal years 2013 and 2012 includes income from discontinued operations of $0.8 million and $0.5 million, respectively.

Q4 Results

Net sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 were $35.2 million, down 9.5% from net sales of $38.9 million during the fourth quarter of last year. Gross profit for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 was 29.1% or $10.2 million, compared to 28.5% or $11.1 million during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 were $11.8 million, compared to $10.4 million during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. Fourth quarter fiscal 2013 operating expenses included approximately $0.9 million of employee-related termination costs.

Operating loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 was $1.6 million, compared to operating income of $0.7 million during last year’s fourth quarter. Loss from continuing operations was $1.4 million, compared to income from continuing operations of $3.7 million or $0.22 per share last year.

“Unfortunately we did not see the global economic recovery we had expected in fiscal 2013, which resulted in lower-than-anticipated demand for replacement tubes particularly in the semiconductor wafer fabrication, textile, and wood drying markets. In addition, we experienced a drop in demand for medical monitors due to uncertainties surrounding healthcare reform, which had a negative impact on capital spending by our customers. As a result, we did not achieve our operating margin goal of 5%. Throughout the year we took steps to reduce our costs, and we continue to evaluate our resources to ensure maximum efficiency without putting the Company at risk of losing talented people or missing key opportunities for growth,” said Edward J. Richardson, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President.

CASH USED FOR SHARE REPURCHASES

“Total cash and investments as of fiscal year end were $146.0 million reflecting repurchases of approximately 1.3 million shares for approximately $15.0 million during the fiscal year. Of the 1.3 million shares, we repurchased 300,000 shares during the fourth quarter using $3.5 million of cash. During our fiscal years 2013 and 2012, we have repurchased a total of 3.2 million shares using $39.0 million of our cash. Our financial position provides flexibility as we carefully evaluate opportunities that will drive our future growth. While growth initiatives remain an integral part of our strategy, we will return value to our shareholders through a combination of cash dividends and share repurchases,” said Mr. Richardson.

As of today, $25.5 million remains under the Company’s existing share repurchase authorization from the company’s Board of Directors. Share repurchases may be made on the open market or in privately negotiated transactions from time to time, subject to market conditions and trading restrictions. This authorization has no expiration and may be cancelled at any time.

OUTLOOK

“We are cautiously optimistic that the global economy is stabilizing, and we are beginning to see increased demand for our products in the key markets we serve,” said Mr. Richardson. “We expect sales for EDG and Canvys for the first quarter of Fiscal 2014 to be in the range of $35 to $37 million. For fiscal 2014, we anticipate sales to be in the range of $155 to $160 million, with operating margin improving to the 5% level in the fourth quarter, and 3% for the fiscal year. We are not satisfied with this level of growth or return. We will continue to actively pursue acquisitions which leverage our existing global infrastructure and capitalize on our strength of serving a diverse end-user community,” concluded Mr. Richardson.

CASH DIVIDEND

The Company also announced today that its Board of Directors declared a $0.06 quarterly dividend per share to holders of common stock and a $0.054 cash dividend per share to holders of Class B common stock. The dividend will be payable on August 23, 2013, to common stockholders of record on August 9, 2013.
