Landec Corporation Reports Second Quarter And First Half Fiscal Year 2012 Results

Landec Corporation (Nasdaq:LNDC), today reported results for the second quarter and first half of fiscal year 2012. Revenues for the second quarter of fiscal year 2012 increased 16% to $81.6 million compared to revenues of $70.2 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2011. Net income increased 63% to $3.3 million, or $0.13 per share, compared to net income of $2.1 million, or $0.08 per share, during the second quarter of fiscal year 2011.

The revenue growth of $11.4 million was due to growth in Landec’s food and biomaterials businesses, specifically: (1) a $6.0 million increase in Apio’s value-added business, which includes the fresh-cut specialty packaged vegetable business, Apio Cooling, and Apio Packaging, (2) a $4.6 million increase in Apio’s export business, and (3) an $813,000 increase in Lifecore’s biomaterials business.

The $1.2 million increase in net income resulted from $1.4 million of pre-tax income from our investment in Windset Farms and a $1.1 million increase in pre-tax income from Apio’s value-added and export businesses. These increases were partially offset by an $840,000 increase in the income tax expense due to higher pre-tax income and by an increase of approximately $400,000 in marketing and business development expenses.

Gary Steele, Landec’s Chairman and CEO, commented, “We had a very good second quarter, achieving revenue growth of 16% and net income growth of 63%. Our Apio food business grew revenues and profits in both its value-added business and its export business. The growth for these businesses can be primarily attributed to increased sales volumes and normal weather patterns so far this year. Overall Apio’s revenues increased 18% and its pre-tax net income more than doubled during the quarter compared to the second quarter of last year. Our Lifecore business increased revenues 10% during the quarter and pre-tax income was flat with the second quarter of last year due to the timing of production, which resulted in reduced absorption of overhead costs during the quarter.”
