Business Wire

STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Harman International Industries, Incorporated, the leading global infotainment and audio group (HAR), today announced results for the first quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Net sales for the first quarter were $1.172 billion, an increase of 17 percent compared to the same period last year, as all three of the Company’s divisions reported sales increases. Net sales increased due to the expansion of recent production launches in the Infotainment division, growth in home and multimedia and car audio within the Lifestyle division, and the expansion of the Company’s product portfolio into lighting within the Professional division.

Excluding restructuring and non-recurring charges, first quarter non-GAAP operating income was $93 million, compared to $79 million in the same period last year. On the same non-GAAP basis, earnings per diluted share were $0.95 for the quarter compared to $0.79 in the same period last year. On a GAAP basis, first quarter operating income was $69 million, compared to $79 million in the same period last year, and earnings per diluted share were $0.66 for the quarter compared to $0.79. The Company recorded restructuring and non-recurring charges of $24 million in the quarter.

Dinesh C. Paliwal, the Company’s Chairman, President and CEO, said, “We are pleased that our fiscal year is off to a solid start with all three of our divisions reporting double-digit top line growth, which resulted in stronger bottom-line performance. During the quarter, we also positioned Harman for continued growth, as we secured over $1.3 billion of new infotainment awards and gained market share through competitive replacements based on our unsurpassed innovation. Our patent count jumped from 4,900 to over 5,200 patents and filings, a further testament to our technology leadership.”

Paliwal continued, “We continue to take aggressive cost actions and implemented a new restructuring program in Germany this quarter to further realign our cost structure. These actions are expected to yield annual savings of approximately $25 million beginning in fiscal year 2015.”

Net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 were $640 million, an increase of 14 percent compared to the prior year, or 10 percent excluding the impact of foreign currency translation. The increase in sales is due to higher volumes from the Company’s recent production launches that continue to gain traction and expand across car lines.

On a non-GAAP basis in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, gross margin decreased 60 basis points to 22.3 percent primarily due to duplicative costs as a result of footprint migration initiatives and higher launch-related costs. SG&A spending decreased 110 basis points to 13.8 percent of net sales primarily due to improved operating leverage on higher sales and higher recoveries of project engineering costs.

Infotainment Division Highlights

During the quarter, HARMAN secured competitive replacement awards totaling $1.3 billion from customers including Volkswagen, Daimler AG, Geely Motors and Ssangyong Motor Company. Specifically, HARMAN will supply a global entry infotainment system to a variety of Volkswagen models in high-growth markets such as Brazil, Russia, India, and Mexico. The Company will also provide a 4G connectivity solution across all Mercedes-Benz car lines globally. Additionally, HARMAN will supply an entry navigation solution for Geely Motors SUV vehicles in China.

HARMAN successfully started production on new Toyota programs in Europe. In addition, after a successful multinational launch of the Mercedes S-Class featuring HARMAN’s NTG5 infotainment system, Daimler extended the availability of this vehicle into the Chinese market.

During the quarter, the Company announced a global agreement with Mazda to equip the new 2014 Mazda3 with HARMAN’s cloud-based Aha platform, which will enable drivers to select audio content from more than 40,000 internet channels and radio from around the globe. The program will launch this fall in Japan, the United States and a number of additional North American and Asian countries on Mazda’s best-selling model.

In September, technology intelligence firm ABI Research named HARMAN the top automotive Tier-1 supplier for connected infotainment solutions. The ABI report noted that HARMAN outpaced its competition due to technology leadership and global presence.

At the Frankfurt Auto Show in September, HARMAN demonstrated that it continues to be a driving force in the car innovations of tomorrow. HARMAN technology was prominent in prestigious vehicle premieres including the BMW i3 electric car. HARMAN is the first company to develop and launch a customized infotainment system that includes features specific to an electric vehicle such as battery status, range assessment and charging station locations.

Net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 were $334 million, an increase of 15 percent compared to the prior year or 13 percent excluding the impact of foreign currency translation. Revenues increased due to strong sales growth in the Company’s home and multimedia product lines and in the car audio business.

On a non-GAAP basis in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, gross margin decreased by 20 basis points compared to the prior year to 32.1 percent primarily due to product mix. SG&A expense as a percentage of sales decreased by 20 basis points to 19.4 percent primarily due to improved operating leverage on higher sales.

Lifestyle Division Highlights

The Lifestyle Division secured new car audio awards during the quarter, with Toyota, Lexus, BMW and others selecting HARMAN’s JBL, Mark Levinson and Harman Kardon audio solutions for a variety of their vehicle platforms.

During the quarter, the Company launched its cross-car line audio solution with BMW. Harman Kardon Logic 7 systems are available in BMW 4-, 5- and 7-series, and X5 model vehicles. Additionally, HARMAN launched its first compact car segment solution for the new Kia Sportage featuring Infinity-branded audio.

At the IFA trade fair in Berlin, HARMAN introduced new products including headphones, wireless audio and home entertainment solutions. Highlights from the fair include: the premiere of LiveStage™ signal processing technology in the JBL Synchros headphone line; the new JBL wireless portable line; and a fully renewed Harman Kardon product line featuring state-of-the-art design and acoustics.

Net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 were $197 million, an increase of 37 percent compared to the prior year or 39 percent excluding foreign currency translation. The increase in net sales is due to the expansion of the Company’s product portfolio into lighting as a result of the acquisition of Martin Professional and stronger demand for the Company’s audio products.

On a non-GAAP basis in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, gross margin decreased 130 basis points to 37.2 percent primarily due to lower gross margins on lighting products. SG&A expense as a percentage of sales decreased 120 basis points to 23.5 percent due to improved operating leverage on higher sales.

Professional Division Highlights

The Professional Division capitalized on demand for its audio and lighting products for use at a wide range of live entertainment events and fixed-venue installations worldwide.

In the developed markets, the Company’s professional solutions were again featured at high profile events including the Emmy Awards and the MTV Video Music Awards. The Company continues to gain market share in the emerging markets with HARMAN system solutions being specified and delivered for a growing number of facilities including the Coke Studio at MTV in Mumbai. HARMAN audio systems were featured prominently across a number of events including Brazil’s week-long Rock in Rio, the world’s largest music festival.

In October 2013, HARMAN completed its acquisition of Duran Audio B.V. (“Duran”). The deal provides the Company with access to innovative electro-acoustic and software-based directivity control technologies. These core products and technologies, including the AXYS Intellivox line of “steerable” columns, will become an integrated part of the HARMAN Professional audio product lines.

During the first quarter of fiscal 2014, SG&A & Other expense increased primarily due to higher marketing and R&D costs.
