Stocks in this article: IRBT

iRobot Corp. (NASDAQ: IRBT), a leader in delivering robotic technology-based solutions, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 29, 2012.

  • Revenue for the third quarter of 2012 was $126.3 million, compared with $120.4 million for the same quarter one year ago. Revenue for the first nine months of 2012 was $335.6 million compared with $334.7 million last year.
  • Net income in the third quarter of 2012 was $15.2 million, compared with $14.1 million in the third quarter of 2011. For the first nine months, net income was $23.2 million, compared with $29.6 million a year ago. Net income included a one-time tax benefit of $3.5 million in the third-quarter and nine-month periods in 2011.
  • Quarterly earnings per share were $0.54, compared with $0.50 in the third quarter last year. Nine-month earnings per share were $0.82 in 2012, compared with $1.06 in 2011. EPS included a one-time tax benefit of $0.12 in the third-quarter and nine-month periods in 2011.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2012 was $29.2 million, compared with $20.2 million in the third quarter of 2011. For the first nine months of 2012 Adjusted EBITDA was $51.5 million, compared with $51.7 million for the same period a year ago.
  • During the third quarter of 2012, there were a number of items recorded, one of which resulted in a $7.7 million revenue increase. The positive net impact of these items was $0.10 in earnings per share and $5.2 million in Adjusted EBITDA.

“During the third-quarter we made several strategic decisions to strengthen the company. We announced our acquisition of Evolution Robotics (ER), hired key senior leaders and began to implement significant actions in our D&S business. Our Home Robot unit has had an outstanding year and we expect continued growth in that business. The 2012 outlook for D&S has deteriorated and we expect further declines in 2013. To right-size the business we have restructured D&S and taken costs out. These moves will result in a fourth quarter 2012 restructuring charge of $4-5 million,” said Colin Angle, chairman and chief executive officer of iRobot. “We are taking these actions in order to invest in our high growth Home Robot business as well as our emerging high potential remote presence business, while meeting our commitment to profitable growth,” he added.
