CTS Announces Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Second quarter cash flow from operations was $16.1 million, the highest level since the third quarter of 2009. Year-to-date cash flow from operations was $12.0 million, compared to $8.8 million in the same period 2011. Year-to-date capital expenditures were $6.9 million compared to $6.5 million last year.

During the second quarter of 2012, the Company repurchased approximately 300,400 shares for $2.9 million, at an average price of $9.68. Year-to-date, the Company repurchased approximately 572,500 shares for $5.6 million, at an average price of $9.86.

Commenting on second quarter 2012 results, Vinod M. Khilnani, CTS Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We were pleased with our second quarter performance, despite the global economic slowdown. We believe that continued progress on new product introductions and strong new business wins will allow the Company to drive double-digit growth in Components and Sensors going forward.”

As a result of lower than expected global economic growth, including negative economic growth in Europe and a stronger dollar, management is lowering its full-year 2012 sales guidance from a range of a 10% to 13% increase over 2011, to 4% to 7%. However, as a result of expected restructuring savings, management is maintaining its 2012 adjusted earnings guidance of $0.75 to $0.80 per share.
