Pulse Electronics Corporation Reports Second Quarter Results

Operating Segment Overview

Network

Network net sales, which are concentrated in the enterprise datacomm and carrier infrastructure markets, were $43.4 million in the second quarter compared with the unusually high volume of $60.8 million in the prior-year quarter. Operating profit was $1.3 million in the quarter compared with $8.4 million in the prior-year quarter. The group’s financial performance reflects lower overall industry demand, lower pricing, and higher overall wages and materials costs.

Power

Power net sales grew 17.8 percent to $38.7 million in the second quarter from $32.8 million in the prior-year quarter. Sales were strong in the automotive and military/aerospace markets. Operating profit was $3.4 million in the quarter compared with $1.6 million in the prior-year quarter. This financial performance reflects strong sales growth and migration of our production to lower cost part suppliers, partially offset by higher overall wage rates compared with the prior-year quarter.

Wireless

Wireless net sales were $12.7 million in the second quarter compared with $22.8 million in the prior-year quarter. The company generated $7.5 million in sales from new antenna customers in the second quarter compared with $1.4 million in the prior-year quarter. This was the sixth consecutive quarter of growth in new antenna customer sales. Operating loss was $3.6 million in the quarter compared with $3.8 million in the prior-year quarter. This financial performance (a smaller loss on $10.1 million less in revenue) primarily reflects the benefits of cost structure reductions in this business.

Cost and Expense Actions

As previously announced, the company took several cost and expense reduction actions during the first quarter of 2011, including consolidation of its corporate headquarters into its U.S. operational headquarters, closure of two factories in China, elimination of audio products, and elimination of organizational layers and support positions. The company believes it is on track to meet the expected savings and effective time frames it previously announced.
