Landec Corporation Reports Third Quarter And First Nine Months Fiscal Year 2012 Results

Stocks in this article: LNDC

Landec Corporation (Nasdaq: LNDC), today reported results for the third quarter and first nine months of fiscal year 2012. Revenues for the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 increased 9% to $80.1 million compared to revenues of $73.5 million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2011. Net income increased 107% to $4.8 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, compared to net income of $2.3 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, during the third quarter of fiscal year 2011.

Third Quarter Results

The revenue growth of $6.6 million was due to an $8.7 million increase in revenues in Apio’s value-added business, which includes the fresh-cut specialty packaged vegetable business, Apio Cooling, and Apio Packaging. The growth in Apio’s value-added vegetable business resulted from a year over year 24% increase in unit volume sales which were facilitated by new distribution gains and normal weather patterns during this year’s third quarter compared to very poor weather conditions during the third quarter of last year which resulted in significant produce sourcing issues. These increases in revenue were partially offset by a $1.1 million decrease in revenues at Lifecore due to the timing of shipments within the fiscal year compared to the third quarter of last year and a $1.3 million decrease in revenues in our Technology Licensing business primarily due to the termination of the Monsanto license agreement at the end of the second quarter of fiscal year 2012.

The $2.5 million increase in net income resulted from a $1.7 million increase in pre-tax income from Apio’s value-added business and a $3.8 million increase in pre-tax income from our investment in Windset Farms, based on a recent appraisal and the requirement to record most of the increase in the fair market value of our Windset investment in the third quarter instead of the fourth quarter. These increases in net income in the third quarter were partially offset by a $1.3 million reduction in license fees from the termination of the Monsanto license agreement and a $1.6 million increase in the income tax expense due to higher pre-tax income.
