iRobot Corporation : iRobot Reports Record Fourth-Quarter and Full-Year Financial Results

02/08/2012 | 04:05pm US/Eastern

iRobot Corp. (NASDAQ: IRBT), a leader in delivering robotic technology-based solutions, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2011.

  • Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2011 increased 15 percent to $130.8 million, compared with $114.0 million for the same quarter one year ago. Revenue for the full year 2011 increased 16 percent to $465.5 million from $401.0 million for the full year 2010.
  • Net income in the fourth quarter of 2011 was $10.6 million, compared with $7.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. Net income for the full year 2011 was $40.2 million, compared with $25.5 million for the same period in 2010.
  • Quarterly earnings per share were $0.38, compared with $0.26 in the fourth quarter last year. Full-year earnings per share were $1.44, compared with $0.96 last year. The full-year results include the impact of a $3.5 million, or $0.12 per share, tax benefit in Q3 2011 and a $2.3 million, or $0.08 per share, tax benefit in Q3 2010. Excluding the impact of these tax benefits, earnings per share for the full year 2011 would have been $1.32, compared with $0.88 for the full year 2010.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2011 was $21.3 million, or 16 percent of revenue, compared with $11.7 million, or 10 percent of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2010. Adjusted EBITDA for the full year 2011 was $73.0 million, compared with $49.3 million for the same period a year ago.
  • Raising Adjusted EBITDA margin target to high-teens by 2014.

"Our record financial results in 2011 were exceptional on all fronts, driven by especially strong performance in our Home Robots division. Revenue increased 16 percent to $465 million for the full year, while Adjusted EBITDA increased nearly 50 percent to $73 million or 16 percent of revenue," said Colin Angle, chairman and chief executive officer of iRobot. "EPS of $1.44 for the year was up 50 percent from 2010.

"As we look at 2012, we feel very good about the growth opportunity for our home robot business in 2012 and beyond. However, we expect a decline in top and bottom line in our G&I division this year due to our current limited visibility in our defense business. We anticipate continued demand from the warfighters and support from military leadership for our products will drive higher revenue in the second half of 2012.

"To capitalize on our growing home robot business, intermediate and longer term opportunities in the defense business and exciting emerging opportunities, we will continue to make investments in marketing and iR&D that extend our leadership position.

"Given the underlying strength of our business model, I am confident that we will achieve our updated 3-year targets of:

  • Mid-to-high-teen revenue CAGR
  • High-teen Adjusted EBITDA margin and
  • High single digit OCF margin."

Business Highlights

  • Surpassed each of our 3 key long-term financial goals, including achievement of mid-teen Adjusted EBITDA margin target, a year ahead of schedule.
  • Strong demand in overseas markets drove a 21 percent year-over-year increase in full-year home robot revenue. International home robot revenue of $196 million comprised 70 percent of total home robot 2011 revenue.
  • Government & industrial robot revenue grew 9 percent in 2011, driven by shipments of Small Unmanned Ground Vehicles and spares.
  • In 2011, operating cash flow was $55.7 million, compared with $49.2 million in 2010. As a result of improved net income, our year-end cash and investment position was $184 million.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 
In evaluating its business, iRobot considers and uses Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of its operating performance. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, merger and acquisition expenses, net intellectual property litigation expenses, restructuring expenses and non-cash stock compensation. The Company also presents Adjusted EBITDA because it believes it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties as a measure of financial performance.
 
 
The term Adjusted EBITDA is not defined under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or U.S. GAAP, and is not a measure of operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and when assessing the Company's operating performance, investors should not consider Adjusted EBITDA in isolation, or as a substitute for net income (loss) or other consolidated income statement data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Among other things, Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the Company's actual cash expenditures. Other companies may calculate similar measures differently than iRobot, limiting their usefulness as comparative tools. iRobot compensates for these limitations by relying primarily on its GAAP results and using Adjusted EBITDA only supplementally.
