Landec Reports Results For Third Quarter And First Nine Months Of Fiscal Year 2013

Nine Months Results

Revenue growth of $99.7 million during the first nine months of fiscal year 2013 compared to the same period last year was due to (1) $70.3 million of revenues from GreenLine, (2) a $17.1 million increase in revenues in Apio's non-GreenLine value-added businesses, (3) an $8.9 million increase in Apio's export revenues due to a 4% increase in export unit volume sales and very favorable pricing, and (4) a $5.6 million increase in revenues from Lifecore due primarily to new product introductions and increased sales to existing customers. The growth in the first nine months of fiscal year 2013 of $17.1 million in Apio's non-GreenLine value-added businesses resulted primarily from a year-over-year 14% increase in unit volume sales of fresh-cut specialty packaged products due to new product offerings, new distribution gains and overall growth in the fresh-cut vegetable category. These increases in revenue were partially offset by a $2.3 million decrease in Corporate revenues primarily due to the termination of the Monsanto license agreement at the end of the second quarter of fiscal year 2012.

For the first nine months of fiscal year 2013, net income increased $8.2 million, or 82% compared to the same period last year, primarily due to an $11.1 million increase in Apio's pre-tax income and a $1.2 million increase in Lifecore's pre-tax income as a result of increased revenues. The increases in Apio's pre-tax income were comprised of: (1) the $3.9 million non-recurring reversal of the GreenLine earn-out liability at the end of the second quarter, (2) $8.6 million from GreenLine, and (3) a $1.6 million increase in the fair market value of our Windset investment compared to the increase in Windset's fair market value during the first nine months of last year. These increases in Apio's pre-tax income were partially offset by: (1) a $1.3 million decrease in pre-tax income in Apio's non-GreenLine value-added businesses primarily due to weather-related sourcing issues during the third quarter and (2) $1.7 million of interest and amortization expenses associated with the acquisition of GreenLine.  The $12.3 million net increase in the pre-tax income for Apio and Lifecore was partially offset by: (1) a $2.3 million reduction in Corporate license fees primarily due to the termination of the Monsanto license agreement and (2) a $2.2 million increase in income tax expense.
