Aeroflex Announces Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Results

Aeroflex Holding Corp. ("Aeroflex") (NYSE: ARX), a leading global provider of high performance microelectronic components, and test and measurement equipment, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2013, which ended December 31, 2012.

For the second quarter of fiscal 2013:

  • Net sales were $156.2 million compared to $171.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.
  • Operating income was $5.8 million and net income was $745,000, or $0.01 per share, compared to operating income of $8.2 million and a net loss of $(535,000), or $(0.01) per share, in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.
  • On a Non-GAAP basis, operating income was $22.5 million, net income was $8.7 million, or $0.10 per share, and Adjusted EBITDA was $27.6 million compared to operating income of $29.8 million, net income of $13.9 million, or $0.16 per share, and Adjusted EBITDA of $34.4 million, in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.

“Despite the difficult environment, we again exceeded expectations this quarter. We saw continued improvement in both AMS and ATS and had strong bookings led by our high performance, high reliability products in AMS. Our overall book-to-bill was well over one-to-one this quarter,” stated Len Borow, Chief Executive Officer of Aeroflex. “The benefits of our operational changes have begun to take effect and we will continue to make improvements throughout the year. We continued to generate sufficient cash that allowed us to repay another $10 million of debt this quarter. Although we are encouraged by the strong bookings, we are still cautious as the political and economic issues affecting our end markets still exist.”

The following tables present selected financial information for the three and six months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and on a basis other than GAAP (“Non-GAAP”). A reconciliation between GAAP and Non-GAAP amounts is presented at the end of this press release. The 33% Non-GAAP effective tax rate in the fiscal 2013 period and 35% in the fiscal 2012 period result from Aeroflex’s geographic mix of Non-GAAP pre-tax income. These rates were applied to Aeroflex’s Non-GAAP pre-tax income for the three and six month periods ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.
