Intermec Preliminary Third Quarter 2012 Results

Stocks in this article: IN

Intermec, Inc. (NYSE: IN) today announced preliminary financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Third quarter 2012 net revenues were $192.8 million and net earnings on a GAAP basis were $7.2 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared to 2011 third quarter revenues of $211.8 million and GAAP net earnings of $704 thousand, or $0.01 per diluted share. Excluding certain adjustments totaling $3.2 million (detailed in the table below), adjusted net earnings for the quarter were $10.4 million, or $0.17 per diluted share.

"I am pleased with our progress improving the Company’s overall performance during the third quarter," said Allen J. Lauer, Intermec Chairman and Interim CEO. “The steps taken in the second quarter led to sequential improvement in gross margins, operating expenses and cash flow. Improved bookings in North America and Latin America contributed to a relatively significant increase in backlog. This provides an improved foundation as we maintain our focus on continuous growth in revenue and profitability."

The Company remains engaged in a review of its long-term strategic direction and leadership requirements. The Company is continuing its work with its financial advisor BofA Merrill Lynch in performing its evaluation of the Company’s business and strategic alternatives. There is no specific timetable for completion of the evaluation. Concurrently, the Company is working with Spencer Stuart to conduct a nationwide search for its next Chief Executive Officer for the Company.

The following table presents the Company’s operating profit (loss), net earnings (loss) and earnings (loss) per share reported for the third quarters and nine months ended September 30, 2012 and October 2, 2011, on a GAAP basis and as adjusted excluding the impact of restructuring costs, acquisition-related costs and other adjustments, and also presents Adjusted EBITDA for those periods:
