  • Consolidated net sales in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012 increased 3% from the prior year fourth quarter on increased net sales in both the Furniture segment and the Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) segment.
  • Fourth quarter gross profit as a percent of net sales improved 3.3 percentage points from the prior year fourth quarter as a result of improved margins in both the Furniture segment and the EMS segment.
  • Consolidated fourth quarter selling and administrative expenses declined 4% compared to the prior year as lower sales and marketing costs and benefits realized from restructuring activities in the EMS segment were partially offset by increased profit-based incentive compensation costs.
  • Restructuring expense in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012 of $0.9 million was related to wrap-up activities associated with the facility consolidation plans within the EMS segment and impairment on an idle manufacturing facility closed as part of a previous restructuring plan.
  • Other Income/Expense for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012 was expense of $2.1 million compared to income of $0.1 million in the prior year fourth quarter. During the current year fourth quarter, the Company recorded a $1.2 million pre-tax loss on a minority-interest investment held by the Company.
  • Operating cash flow for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012 was a cash inflow of $29.0 million compared to an operating cash inflow of $28.9 million in the fourth quarter of the prior year.
  • The Company's effective tax rate in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012 was 33.0% compared to 125.7% in the fourth quarter of the prior year. The prior year effective tax rate was impacted by the mix of income between U.S. and foreign jurisdictions with different tax rates coupled with the relatively low pre-tax loss in the prior year.
  • The Company's cash and cash equivalents increased to $75.2 million at June 30, 2012, compared to $51.4 million at June 30, 2011. A shift in the payment practices of three large EMS segment customers during fiscal year 2012 favorably impacted cash flow by approximately $12.6 million. The Company had no short-term borrowings outstanding at June 30, 2012 or June 30, 2011. Long-term debt including current maturities remains at $0.3 million.

Fiscal year 2012 annual consolidated net sales of $1.1 billion decreased 5.0% from fiscal year 2011 net sales of $1.2 billion. Net income for fiscal year 2012 was $11.6 million, or $0.31 per Class B diluted share, inclusive of $2.1 million, or $0.06 per Class B diluted share, of after-tax restructuring expense. Net income for fiscal year 2011 was $4.9 million, or $0.14 per Class B diluted share, inclusive of $0.6 million, or $0.01 per Class B diluted share, of after-tax restructuring expense. Operating cash flow for fiscal year 2012 was $59.0 million compared to $21.3 million in the prior fiscal year.

James C. Thyen, Chief Executive Officer and President, stated, "Both the Furniture segment and the EMS segment delivered solid financial performance during the fourth quarter to end fiscal year 2012 with good momentum. While we continue to see mixed demand in our top line revenue, the gross margin improvement in both segments coupled with the reduction in consolidated selling and administrative expenses during the quarter was very encouraging. Our focused efforts on effectively managing working capital throughout the year were also successful as highlighted by our strong operating cash flow in fiscal year 2012."

Mr. Thyen concluded, "We are optimistic going into fiscal year 2013 and are well positioned to continue the momentum gained this past quarter. However, we do remain cautious given the delicate state of the global macroeconomic environment caused by the European debt crisis, uncertainty with the upcoming U.S. elections and the uncertainty surrounding the potential federal fiscal cliff of pending tax increases and spending cuts at the end of the year."

  • Fiscal year 2012 fourth quarter net sales in the EMS segment increased 1% compared to the fourth quarter of the prior year as increased net sales to customers in the automotive and industrial markets more than offset a decline in net sales to customers in the medical industry. The comparison to prior year for the automotive industry was aided by the unfavorable impact that the Japan earthquake had on sales to automotive customers in the fourth quarter of last year. The decline in net sales to the medical industry primarily resulted from the previously announced expiration of a contract with one large customer late in fiscal year 2011 which accounted for a $10.5 million reduction in net sales in the current year fourth quarter compared to the fourth quarter of the prior year. Excluding sales to this customer, current year fourth quarter net sales in the EMS segment increased 8% compared to the prior year.
  • Gross profit as a percent of net sales in the EMS segment for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012 improved 2.0 percentage points when compared to the fourth quarter of the prior year primarily related to benefits realized related to restructuring activities in which two facilities were closed during the second quarter of fiscal year 2012, increased labor efficiencies at select facilities, and a sales mix shift to higher margin product.
  • Selling and administrative costs in this segment declined 12% in the fiscal year 2012 fourth quarter when compared to the prior year as benefits realized from the restructuring activities were partially offset by increased profit-based incentive compensation costs. As a percent of net sales, selling and administrative costs declined 1.1 percentage points.

  • Fiscal year 2012 fourth quarter net sales in the Furniture segment increased 5% compared to the prior year on increased net sales of hospitality furniture. Net sales of office furniture products in the fourth quarter were flat with the prior year.
  • Gross profit as a percent of net sales improved 4.7 percentage points in the Furniture segment in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012 when compared to the prior year as earnings were favorably impacted by a reduction in the LIFO inventory reserve and benefits realized from price increases.
  • Selling and administrative costs in the Furniture segment for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012 remained flat compared to the prior year as lower sales and marketing costs were offset by higher profit-based incentive compensation costs. As a percent of net sales, fiscal year 2012 fourth quarter selling and administrative expenses improved 1.3 percentage points compared to the prior year on the leverage from the increase in revenue.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures. A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's financial performance that excludes or includes amounts so as to be different than the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) in the United States in the statement of income, balance sheet or statement of cash flows of the Company. The non-GAAP financial measures on a consolidated basis used within this release include 1) net sales excluding sales to Bayer AG, 2) operating income (loss) excluding restructuring charges, 3) net income excluding restructuring charges, and 4) earnings per Class B diluted share excluding restructuring charges. The non-GAAP financial measures on a segment basis used within this release include 1) net sales excluding sales to Bayer AG, 2) operating income excluding restructuring charges and 3) net income excluding restructuring charges. Reconciliations of the reported GAAP numbers to these non-GAAP financial measures are included in the Financial Highlights table below. Management believes it is useful for investors to understand how its core operations performed without the effects of the costs incurred in executing its restructuring plans. Excluding the restructuring charges allows investors to meaningfully trend, analyze, and benchmark the performance of the Company's core operations. Many of the Company's internal performance measures that management uses to make certain operating decisions exclude these charges to enable meaningful trending of core operating metrics.
