Published on

Harman International Industries, Incorporated (NYSE:HAR) , the premier audio, visual, infotainment and enterprise automation group, today announced results for the first quarter ended September 30, 2014.

Net sales for the first quarter were $1.43 billion, an increase of 22 percent compared to the same period in the prior year. Infotainment net sales increased 17 percent due to expansion of recently launched platforms, stronger automotive production, and higher take rates. Lifestyle net sales grew 27 percent driven by strong demand for the Company’s home and multimedia product lines and an increase in automotive production and higher take rates in car audio. Net sales in the Professional division increased primarily as a result of the expansion of the Company’s product portfolio into video switching and enterprise automation.

On a GAAP basis, first quarter operating income was $116 million, compared to $69 million in the same period in the prior year, and earnings per diluted share were $1.18 for the quarter compared to $0.66 in the same period in the prior year. Excluding restructuring and other non-recurring items, first quarter operating income was $128 million compared to $93 million in the same period in the prior year and earnings per diluted share were $1.31 compared to $0.95.

“We are pleased that our fiscal year is off to a solid start with 22 percent top-line growth, which also resulted in EBITDA expansion. We continue to see rising take rates for an embedded connected car experience. The fundamentals of our business are intact and despite fluctuations in foreign currency rates, we are confident in our full year guidance,” said Dinesh C. Paliwal, the Company’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Looking further out, demand from automakers for innovative embedded infotainment and car audio solutions remains robust as evidenced by over $2 billion of new automotive awards that we secured in the first quarter of this fiscal year. These proof points give us the confidence to put in place a three year $500 million share buy-back program.”

Summary of Operations – Gross Margin and SG&A

Non-GAAP gross margin for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 increased 160 basis points to 29.2 percent. The improvement was primarily due to the impact of higher sales volume utilizing a more efficient fixed production cost base and favorable product mix.

In the first quarter of fiscal 2015, SG&A expense as a percentage of net sales increased 64 basis points to 20.3 percent on a non-GAAP basis due to increased investments in marketing and integration expenses related to recent acquisitions.

Net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2015 were $426 million, an increase of 27 percent compared to the same period in the prior year, or 28 percent excluding the impact of foreign currency translation. The growth in home and multimedia was primarily due to new product introductions and the expansion of global distribution channels. The growth in car audio was primarily driven by the expansion of recently launched programs, stronger automotive production, and higher take rates.

On a non-GAAP basis in the first quarter of fiscal 2015, gross margin of 32 percent and SG&A expense as a percentage of sales of 19.4 percent were essentially in line with the prior year.

In the Company’s home and multimedia business, HARMAN introduced 58 new products at the IFA trade show in Germany. The Harman Kardon Esquire Mini, the AKG K845BT Bluetooth headphones and the JBL Authentics won EISA awards. At the CEDIA Expo, which showcases the Company’s luxury solutions, HARMAN received two “Best of Show” awards for the Mark Levinson integrated amplifier with Clari-Fi technology and the JBL Synthesis multi-channel amplifier.

Net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2015 were $254 million, an increase of 29 percent compared to the prior year. The increase in net sales is primarily due to the expansion of the Company’s product portfolio into video switching and enterprise automation, as a result of the acquisition of AMX.

On a non-GAAP basis in the first quarter of fiscal 2015, gross margin increased 349 basis points to 40.7 percent and SG&A expense as a percentage of sales increased to 29.6 percent compared to 23.5 percent in the prior year. Both of these increases are primarily due to the expansion of the Company’s product portfolio into video switching and enterprise automation (AMX).

HARMAN has provided a reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures in the table above to provide the users of the consolidated financial statements with a better understanding of the Company’s performance. Because changes in currency exchange rates affect its reported financial results, the Company shows the rates of change both including and excluding the effect of these changes in exchange rates. The Company encourages readers of its financial statements to evaluate its financial performance excluding the impact of foreign currency translation. These non-GAAP measures are not measurements under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. This measurement should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information contained in HARMAN’s consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with US GAAP.
