HARMAN FY2013 Second Quarter Earnings Supporting Slide Deck

HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated, the leading global audio and infotainment group (NYSE: HAR), today announced results for the second quarter ended December 31, 2012. HARMAN also announced today plans to launch an infotainment services business as well as restructuring initiatives to further reduce operating costs.

Dinesh C. Paliwal, the Company’s Chairman, President and CEO, said, “Our results during the second quarter did not meet our expectations. To enhance returns for our shareholders, we are taking the right steps to reduce costs, continue to drive innovation and expand our portfolio to achieve profitable growth. Economic headwinds and the slow-down in the automotive sector in Europe created a difficult operating environment for HARMAN during the second quarter, and we expect these conditions to continue for the first half of calendar year 2013. Despite these challenges, we will continue to aggressively execute on all four of our strategic pillars to strengthen the Company’s competitiveness over the long-term. Our fundamental strategy remains unchanged and with higher margin order backlog we continue to believe that Fiscal 2014 and 2015 will be strong years for HARMAN.”

Net sales for the second quarter were $1.056 billion, a decrease of 6 percent compared to the same period last year. In local currency, net sales decreased by 4 percent compared to the same period last year primarily as a result of the economic slow-down in Europe, which significantly impacted automotive production. Sales in the Professional Division were similarly affected by the recession in Europe, as well as by capital project delays during the quarter pending the outcome of presidential elections in the USA and China.

Second quarter operating income was $68 million, compared to $95 million in the same period last year. Excluding restructuring and non-recurring charges, operating profit in the second quarter was $57 million, compared to $96 million in the same period last year.
