Richardson Electronics Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Results And Declares Cash Dividend

Richardson Electronics, Ltd. (NASDAQ: RELL) today reported sales and earnings for its second quarter ended December 1, 2012. The Company also announced that its Board of Directors declared a $0.06 per share quarterly cash dividend.

Net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 were $36.6 million, down 6.5% from net sales of $39.1 million during the second quarter of last year reflecting the impact of the uncertainty within the global marketplace. Gross profit for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $10.7 million, or 29.3% of net sales, compared to $11.7 million, or 29.9% of net sales, during the second quarter of fiscal 2012. Gross profit during the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was impacted by unabsorbed manufacturing labor and overhead of $0.3 million, or 0.8% of net sales.

Selling, General, and Administrative (“SG&A”) costs during the second quarter of fiscal 2013 were $10.2 million, compared to $10.0 million during last year’s second quarter. SG&A expenses during the second quarter of fiscal 2013 included severance costs, expenses related to a preference claim, and product development costs totaling $0.4 million.

Operating income during the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $0.5 million, or 1.4% of net sales, compared to operating income of $1.7 million, or 4.4% of net sales, during the second quarter of last year. Income from continuing operations for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $0.6 million, or $0.04 per diluted common share, compared to income from continuing operations of $1.6 million, or $0.09 per diluted common share during the second quarter of last year.

“Sales in the first half of our fiscal year were impacted by slowing growth in Asia combined with global financial instability and a decline in demand for semiconductor wafer fabrication components. We have adjusted resources to align our costs with current sales expectations. With an outlook for improving global economic conditions, we anticipate sales for the second half of our fiscal year to be up significantly over the first half,” said Edward J. Richardson, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President.
