Gary Steele, Landec Chairman and CEO, commented, “We had a productive first quarter, achieving revenue growth of 13% and cash flow from operations of $4.4 million, which is the same amount of operating cash generated in the first quarter last year. While net income was lower during the first quarter this year compared to the same quarter last year, we exceeded our internal plan for the quarter. We are tracking well towards meeting or exceeding our financial guidance for fiscal year 2012 of 5% or better revenue growth and 30% to 40% net income growth after adding back the one-time impairment charge of $4.8 million to net income for fiscal year 2011.”“On September 14, 2011, we announced that Monsanto Company had informed us that it intends to allow the co-exclusive technology license agreement between Landec and Monsanto to expire in accordance with its terms on December 1, 2011, without Monsanto exercising its purchase option. As a result, Monsanto will pay Landec a $4 million termination fee on or prior to December 1, 2011. Since entering into the license agreement with Monsanto, the Company has been recognizing $200,000 in revenue per quarter as a result of this guaranteed termination fee. Importantly, all rights to the Intellicoat® seed coating and controlled release technology will be returned to Landec, allowing us to broaden our early stage discussions with other leading seed and crop protection companies,” added Steele.
