Vishay Precision Group, Inc. (NYSE: VPG) ("VPG" or the “Company”), a leading producer of sensors based on resistive foil technology and sensor-based systems, today announced results for the second fiscal quarter ended July 2, 2011. VPG was spun-off from Vishay Intertechnology (NYSE: VSH) as an independent publicly traded company and began trading on the New York Stock Exchange in July 2010.
Net revenues for the second fiscal quarter of 2011 were $62.1 million, representing a 17.4% increase, over the $52.9 million of net revenues for the comparable prior year period. Net earnings for the second fiscal quarter of 2011 were $3.0 million or $0.22 per diluted share, versus net earnings of $4.0 million, or $0.30 per diluted share for the comparable prior year period (see Notes below). The change in net earnings largely reflects an increase in selling, general and administrative expenses associated with operating as an independent, publicly traded company with global operations.
Net revenues for the six fiscal months ended July 2, 2011 were $121.7 million, representing a 20.3% increase over the $101.1 million of net revenues for the comparable prior year period. Net earnings for the six fiscal months ended July 2, 2011 were $6.3 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, versus net earnings of $5.8 million, or $0.44 per diluted share for the comparable prior year period (see Notes below).
Commenting on the results, Ziv Shoshani, Chief Executive Officer of VPG, said, “The events during the second quarter were all diminished by the loss of Dr. Felix Zandman. He was the inventor of the foil technology products that are the foundation of VPG today. The VPG spin off from Vishay Intertechnology was the fulfillment of his vision to increase shareholder value for both companies and to grow VPG as a stand-alone company. Marc Zandman, our Chairman of the Board, and I are dedicated to carry on Dr. Zandman’s vision for Vishay Precision Group.”
