CTS Announces Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

CTS Corporation (NYSE: CTS) today announced second quarter 2013 revenues of $151.6 million, an increase of 1% from the prior quarter and a decrease of 2% from the same period last year driven by softness in EMS markets. Second quarter net loss was $11.3 million, or $0.34 per share, compared to net earnings of $3.3 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, in the same period last year. Included in the second quarter 2013 results was a non-cash tax expense of $0.32 per share related to the cash repatriation of $30 million and restructuring and other costs of $0.22 per share. Excluding these items, second quarter 2013 adjusted earnings were $0.20 per share compared to adjusted earnings of $0.14 per share in the first quarter 2013 and $0.18 per share in the same period last year.

Within this segment, electronic components sales increased $4.8 million, or 15%, and automotive product sales increased $2.5 million, or 4%, from the prior quarter. Sales in EMS decreased $5.3 million, or 10%, primarily on lower demand in defense and aerospace and communications markets.

Second quarter 2013 Components and Sensors segment sales grew $28.6 million, or 37%, from the second quarter 2012. Automotive sales increased $20.4 million, or 43%, year-over-year, primarily due to sales of $13.2 million from the D&R Technology acquisition. Sales of electronic components increased $8.2 million, or 28%. EMS segment sales decreased $31.3 million in the second quarter of 2013 from the same period last year primarily from our decision to exit certain customers last year and declines in defense and aerospace and communications markets.

CTS announced a $16 to $20 million restructuring plan on June 11, with expected annual savings of approximately $8 to $10 million once fully implemented in 2014. The plan is designed to further improve the Company’s cost structure and capacity utilization.
