iRobot Corp. (NASDAQ: IRBT), a leader in delivering robotic technology-based solutions, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 29, 2012.
“Our Home Robot business had a phenomenal year with revenue increasing 28 percent over 2011, but as expected, the decline in Defense & Security revenue resulted in lower total company revenue and profit for the year,” said Colin Angle, chairman and chief executive officer of iRobot.
“2012 was a transformational year for our business, and as we enter 2013, we are a different company than we were a year ago. Our business performance over the next few years will be driven by our rapidly growing home technology business. Home Robots is expected to grow roughly 20 percent this year and comprise 90 percent of total company revenue. In addition, we have an emerging remote presence business and have stabilized our defense business.”
- Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $100.7 million, compared with $130.8 million for the same quarter one year ago. Revenue for the full year 2012 was $436.2 million, compared with $465.5 million for the full year 2011.

- Full-year domestic Home Robot revenue growth of more than 40 percent, coupled with international revenue growth of 22 percent, drove a 28 percent year-over-year increase in full-year Home Robot revenue. International Home Robot revenue of $239 million comprised 67 percent of total Home Robot 2012 revenue.
- Closed the acquisition of Evolution Robotics (ER) on October 1, 2012. We are on schedule with our integration and ahead of schedule on our planned rollout of ER’s Mint ® floor sweeping robot to our international distributors.
