Aeroflex Holding Corp. ("Aeroflex") (NYSE: ARX), a leading global provider of microelectronic components and test and measurement equipment, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year of fiscal 2011.
Net sales increased 4.7% from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010 to a new quarterly record of $198.7 million. Sales from the AMS segment were strong, offsetting the weakness in the ATS business from products that did not ship. Non-GAAP operating income increased 11.2% from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010 to $53.2 million, also a new quarterly record. Adjusted EBITDA also reached a new quarterly record of $57.9 million, a 10.5% increase from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010.
Net sales, Non-GAAP operating income and Adjusted EBITDA also reached full fiscal year records as sales increased 11.4% to $729.4 million, Non-GAAP operating income increased 11.9% to $164.8 million and Adjusted EBITDA increased 10.6% to $183.7 million.
“Our annual performance was exceptional despite the disappointment with our ATS business in the fourth quarter,” said Len Borow, Chief Executive Officer. “We achieved double digit growth in sales, Non-GAAP operating income and Adjusted EBITDA in fiscal 2011. Fourth quarter gross margins were extremely strong and contributed to a 120 basis point improvement to 53.9% for the full year of fiscal 2011. This quarter, in a key growth market, we received the first significant order from a major global manufacturer of wireless infrastructure equipment for next generation LTE(A) products. This order demonstrates our ability to continue to innovate and develop key products that are essential for us to continue our market leadership into LTE(A). As we prepare to enter a challenging year due to the uncertainty in the U.S. Government budget and the world economy, we have rededicated ourselves to maintaining market leadership positions, building upon our product portfolio and strengthening our partnerships with customers.”
