Landec Corporation's CEO Discusses F3Q 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Yesterday in our earnings release we reported another good quarter with revenues up 9% to $80.1 million a net income of 107% to $4.8 million. Earnings per share for the quarter was $0.18 per share compared to $0.09 per share for the last years third quarter. The actual net income results for the third quarter are higher than we had anticipated due to a timing shift for the recognition of the increase in the fair market value of our investment in Windset Farms. Recall, that we own 20% of Windset. Based on a recent annual appraisal of Windset’s fair market value we will require to record much of the remaining full year increase in our share of the fair market value change in the third quarter instead of the fourth quarter.

The timing shift does not alter or affect our outlook which remains strong for this fiscal year. We are increasing our fiscal year 2012 guidance for revenue growth to 9 to 10% increase compared to our original guidance of 5% or better growth. And for guiding our year-over-year net income growth to approximately 40% after adding back the one-time impairment charge of 4.8 million to net income for fiscal year 2011 and that is compared to our original guidance of 30 to 40% increase. We continue to focus on growing our two core businesses, our food business and our biomedical materials business and we are benefitting from this focus.

During the third quarter, the Apio value-added food business increased revenues $8.7 million based on a 24% increase in unit volume sales. The fresh-cut produce industry category unit volume continues to improve and the industry category is growing at 6.2% over the last 9 months while Apio’s unit volume has grown 19% over the last 9 months more than triple the category growth. Apio’s food business growth is based on continued and successful efforts in adding customers and introducing new products as well as from its competitive advantages in technology, customer service and product quality.
