IntriCon Corporation (NASDAQ: IIN), a designer, developer, manufacturer and distributor of miniature and micro-miniature body-worn devices, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2014.
Second Quarter Highlights:
- Net sales of $17.5 million rose 53 percent from the 2013 second quarter;
- Gross margins of 27.3 percent increased significantly from 16.2 percent in the prior-year period;
- IntriCon achieved net income from continuing operations of $813,000, up sequentially from $787,000 in the 2014 first quarter and versus a net loss of $2.0 million in the prior-year period;
- The company reduced bank debt by approximately $300,000 during the second quarter; and,
- IntriCon’s medical business posted strong results, with revenue up 89 percent over the prior-year period.
Second-Quarter Financial Results
For the 2014 second quarter, the company reported net sales of $17.5 million, up from $11.5 million in the prior-year period. IntriCon had net income of $813,000, or $0.13 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $(3.4) million, or $(0.60) per diluted share, for the 2013 second quarter. Included in 2013 second-quarter results was a net loss from discontinued operations of $(1.5) million, or $(0.26) per diluted share, of which approximately $(1.0) million, or $(0.18) per diluted share, related to one-time, non-cash charges stemming from restructuring initiatives.
“Building on our first-quarter momentum, we again delivered double-digit, top-line gains across all of our businesses and increased profitability in the second quarter,” said Mark S. Gorder, president and chief executive officer of IntriCon. “We remain focused on our strategy of driving business with our key medical and hearing health customers, and pursuing our highest potential growth opportunities in value hearing health and medical biotelemetry.
“The strength of Medtronic’s 530G insulin pump system fueled our medical business—which accounted for a large portion of our year-over-year sales increase. However, we also saw improvements in the value hearing health segment of our business, and professional audio sales nearly doubled from 2013.”
Gross profit margins grew to 27.3 percent from 16.2 percent for the prior-year second quarter and held steady sequentially compared with 27.6 percent in the 2014 first quarter. The year-over-year gains were primarily due to volume increases and cost reductions generated from the company’s previous disclosed global restructuring plan.
For the 2014 six-month period, IntriCon reported higher net sales of $34.8 million and net income of $1.3 million, or $0.22 per diluted share. This compares to 2013 six-month net sales of $25.6 million and a net loss of $(3.9) million, or $(0.69) per diluted share. The 2014 six-month period net income from continuing operations was $1.6 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, with a discontinued operations net loss of $(270,000), or $(0.05) per diluted share. The 2013 six-month results included a discontinued operations net loss of $(1.9) million, or $(0.34) per diluted share.
Gross profit margins increased to 27.4 percent from 22.0 percent for the prior-year six months. Again, the gain was primarily due to volume increases and cost reductions.
Sales in IntriCon’s medical business rose 89 percent in the 2014 second quarter compared to the year-ago period. As previously disclosed, IntriCon’s largest customer, Medtronic, received FDA approval for their MiniMed 530G insulin pump in late 2013, and that business has been a large contributor to first-half sales gains. While IntriCon expects medical sales growth to remain strong overall in 2014 year over year, the company does not anticipate a sequential increase from the second quarter.
Hearing health sales grew during the quarter, rising 13 percent from the prior-year quarter, chiefly due to strong device sales in the value space, including personal sound amplifier products (PSAPs), partially offset by lower conventional channel sales.
Said Gorder, “Within the conventional hearing health channel, growth continues to be constrained by high device costs, distribution inefficiencies and retail consolidation. These factors, among others, have created a need for an outcomes-based hearing health model. To that end, we are focusing our efforts on significant opportunities we see in this area and pursuing the value hearing aid and PSAP channels.”
Professional audio sales rose 66 percent from the prior-year period. During the second quarter, IntriCon began delivery on a significant new contract with the Singapore government to provide technically advanced headsets worn in military applications. This contract will run through the end of 2014. IntriCon will continue to leverage its core technologies in professional audio to support existing customers, as well as pursue related hearing health and medical product opportunities.
Concluded Gorder, “We are well positioned to build on our positive momentum. Looking ahead to the second half of the year, we anticipate revenue growth of approximately 20 percent over the comparable 2013 period. And we remain steadfast in our focus going forward: aggressively pursuing opportunities in value hearing health and medical biotelemetry. As a company, we’ve developed the infrastructure that positions IntriCon to secure large opportunities in the marketplace.”

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
