Landec Corporation Reports First Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 Results

Stocks in this article: LNDC

Landec ended the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 with $10.8 million in cash and marketable securities. During the first quarter of fiscal year 2013, Landec increased cash flow from operations by 17% to $5.1 million from $4.4 million during the first quarter of fiscal year 2012. Capital expenditures were $2.0 million for property, plant and equipment. In addition, the Company paid down debt by $5.5 million and paid a $10 million earn-out payment related to the acquisition of Lifecore.

Gary Steele, Landec Chairman and CEO, commented, “We had a productive first quarter with revenues growing 39% and net income increasing 40%. Net income and margins were adversely impacted during the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 by the drought in the Midwest which resulted in approximately $1.2 million of incremental costs associated with the sourcing of green beans. Conversely, net income was positively impacted by the shift of $1.9 million of revenue and $1.0 million of pre-tax profit at Lifecore to the first quarter that had been planned for the second quarter. Without this shift, revenues and profits for Lifecore would have been in line with our plan and guidance for the first quarter in which we had expected Lifecore to record lower revenues and profits during the first quarter compared to the first quarter of last year. The drought issue in the first quarter and the shift in a shipment at Lifecore do not change our expected results for the first half or for the full fiscal year of 2013.”

“Our strategy for growth is to focus on our core food and biomedical materials businesses, while capitalizing on our technology and on our strong channels of distribution in order to drive growth across all our businesses. We are making good progress as evidenced by the growth in revenues, gross profit and net income during last fiscal year and the first quarter of this fiscal year. We are tracking well towards meeting our financial guidance for fiscal year 2013, which is to grow revenues by approximately 30% and net income by 25% to 35%,” concluded Steele.
