Rogers Corporation Reports 2012 Fourth Quarter And Year-End Results

Rogers Corporation (NYSE:ROG) (“Rogers” or the “Company”) today announced fourth quarter 2012 net sales of $124.2 million and income from continuing operations of $0.30 per diluted share, which includes net special charges of $0.28 per diluted share. Excluding these net special charges, non-GAAP income from continuing operations was $0.58 per diluted share. Net sales and GAAP income from continuing operations were within the Company’s updated guidance announced on January 29, 2013 of approximately $124 million in net sales and GAAP income of $0.24 to $0.30 per diluted share. Actual non-GAAP income per diluted share from continuing operations was also within the updated guidance range. Fourth quarter 2011 net sales were $125.3 million with income from continuing operations of $0.22 per diluted share, which included net special charges of $0.20 per diluted share.

Net sales from continuing operations for the full year 2012 were $498.8 million, a decrease from the all-time record $548.3 million for the full year 2011. Full year 2012 income from continuing operations was $4.07 per diluted share compared to $2.64 per diluted share for the full year 2011. Full year 2012 income included a net benefit from special items of $2.06 per diluted share, which is primarily related to the reversal of a tax valuation allowance on the majority of the Company’s US deferred tax assets. Full year 2011 results included net special charges of $0.20 per diluted share.

Reconciliations of the fourth quarter and full year non-GAAP to GAAP operating results discussed in the preceding paragraphs and first quarter 2013 guidance are included at the end of this release.

Business Segment Discussion

High Performance Foams

In the fourth quarter of 2012, High Performance Foams reported an all-time record for fourth quarter net sales of $47.6 million, an increase of 6.5% compared to the fourth quarter 2011 net sales of $44.7 million. The increase in net sales is primarily due to increased sales of PORON® foam cushioning and sealing materials into tablet computer devices, as this market segment continues to grow. This business segment also experienced strong demand for PORON® XRD® extreme impact protection materials for use in protective cases for smart phones and tablets, as well as sports performance apparel. Demand also increased in the industrial and mass transit markets. In addition, during the fourth quarter this segment substantially completed the announced shut down of its manufacturing operations in Bremen, Germany and successfully moved certain production to its existing facility in Carol Stream, Illinois.
