STRATTEC SECURITY CORPORATION Reports Fiscal 2013 Third Quarter Results

MILWAUKEE, April 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- STRATTEC SECURITY CORPORATION (Nasdaq:STRT) today reported operating results for the fiscal third quarter ended March 31, 2013.

Net sales for the Company's third quarter ended March 31, 2013 were $74.7 million, compared to net sales of $70.6 million for the third quarter ended April 1, 2012. The higher net sales for the current quarter can be primarily attributed to increased customer production volumes. Higher content on certain vehicles also contributed to the net sales improvement during the current quarter.

Net income for the current quarterly period was $1.1 million, compared to net income of $2.7 million in the prior year quarter. Diluted earnings per share for the current quarterly period were $.32 compared to diluted earnings per share of $.82 in the prior year quarter. The lower net income for the current year quarter was significantly affected by a pre-tax pension settlement charge of $2.1 million or $.42 diluted earnings per share relating to our Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan. This settlement charge recognizes the prior unrealized actuarial losses which were cash settled during the current quarter. The charge had no current effect on our total shareholders' equity because the unrealized actuarial losses were already recognized during prior periods in "Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss" in shareholders' equity. Without the above charge, diluted earnings per share on an adjusted basis would have been $.74 in the current year quarter, as shown in the table presented under "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measure" below.

For the nine months ended March 31, 2013, the Company's net sales were $217.7 million compared to net sales of $202.9 million in the prior year nine month period. Net income during the current year nine month period was $6.2 million compared to net income of $5.6 million in the prior year nine month period. Diluted earnings per share were $1.80 (or $2.22 without the settlement charge as shown in the table below) for the nine month period ended March 31, 2013 compared to diluted earnings per share of $1.67 during the nine month period ended April 1, 2012.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measure:
         
  Three Months Ended Nine Months Ended
   March 31,  April 1,   March 31,  April 1,
  2013 2012 2013 2012
         
Diluted earnings per share, as reported $0.32 $0.82 $1.80 $1.67
Effect of settlement charge 0.42   --  0.42   -- 
Diluted earnings per share, as adjusted $0.74 $0.82 $2.22 $1.67

In addition to the results reported in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") included in this release, the table above (as well as the information provided in this release) provides certain non-GAAP financial information, related to diluted earnings per share excluding the impact of a pension settlement charge (as described in more detail above). Management believes that the presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure provides useful information to investors because this information may allow investors to better evaluate ongoing business performance and certain components of the Company's results. In addition, the Company believes the presentation of diluted earnings per share excluding the impact of the pension settlement charge enhances an investor's ability to make period-to-period comparisons of the Company's operating results. This information should be considered in addition to the results presented in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered a substitute for the GAAP results. The Company has reconciled the non-GAAP financial information included in this release to the nearest GAAP measure.
