Company Exceeds Q122 EPS Targets; Company Increases High End of FY22 EPS Target Range

BEDFORD, Mass., May 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- iRobot Corp. (NASDAQ: IRBT), a leader in consumer robots, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended April 2, 2022.

Colin Angle, chairman and chief executive officer of iRobot, stated, "Our recent tariff exclusion, combined with prudent cost management, enabled us to outperform our initial operating loss and net loss per share expectations for the first quarter of 2022. In terms of our first-quarter 2022 revenue, we delivered solid performances in the U.S. and Japan, which mostly was offset by a decline in EMEA. The first quarter was also highlighted by important progress to advance each element of our 'INNOVATE. GET. KEEP. GROW.' strategy."

Commenting on the company's outlook, Angle concluded, "Looking ahead, we plan to manage our business in ways that will enable us to navigate the potential for disruptions in the consumer marketplace, particularly in EMEA, primarily driven by a combination of heightened inflation and reduced consumer confidence stemming from the Russia-Ukraine war. While we still anticipate solid revenue growth in North America and our prospects in Japan are strengthening, we have reduced our full-year revenue growth expectations due primarily to the prospect of muted category growth in EMEA. Nevertheless, the combination of tariff-related savings and ongoing actions to carefully manage spending will help us preserve our profitability and enable us to slightly increase the high end of our FY22 EPS targets. We believe that our anticipated revenue and EPS trajectory in the second half of FY22 will leave us well positioned to deliver on our long-term financial targets."

Financial Performance Highlights

  • Revenue for the first quarter of 2022 was $292.0 million, compared with $303.3 million in the first quarter of 2021.

  • GAAP operating loss for the first quarter of 2022 was $23.3 million, compared with GAAP operating income of $6.4 million in the first quarter of 2021. First-quarter 2022 non-GAAP operating loss of $18.5 million compared with non-GAAP operating income of $15.0 million in the same period one year ago.

  • GAAP net loss per share was $1.12 for the first quarter of 2022, compared with GAAP net income per share of $0.26 for the same period one year ago. Non-GAAP net loss per share was $0.66 for the first quarter of 2022 versus non-GAAP first-quarter 2021 net income per share of $0.41.

  • As of April 2, 2022, the company's cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $113.5 million, compared with $234.5 million at the end of 2021.

Q122 and Recent Business Highlights

  • During the first quarter of 2022, iRobot further expanded its community of engaged, connected customers who have opted-in to its digital communications to approximately 14.9 million, a 40% increase over the same period one year ago.

  • In mid-March, iRobot released version 4.0 of its Genius Home Intelligence platform, which delivers an array of new features and functionality for its fleet of WiFi-connected Roomba and Braava floor cleaning robots. Among the more significant capabilities of Genius 4.0 is the addition of Imprint Smart Mapping to the Roomba i3 Series, which enables customers to create customizable Smart Maps and then have their robot clean specific rooms via the iRobot Home app or through their preferred voice assistant. Genius 4.0 also adds towels and clothes to the range of objects that the Roomba j7 Series can identify and avoid, thereby further improving mission completion rates.

  • During the first quarter of 2022, the Roomba j7 Series was introduced in Japan and other key markets around the world.

  • On March 23, 2022, the United States Trade Representative reinstated the exclusion for robotic vacuum cleaners from Section 301 tariffs. This exclusion, which became retroactively effective on October 12, 2021, will extend through December 31, 2022.

  • iRobot made solid progress during the first quarter to increase overall supply chain resiliency and continuity while also taking steps to increase efficiency across its warehouse network in North America.

  • iRobot continued to build strong brand awareness while the company's products continued to win major awards and receive favorable reviews. During the first quarter, iRobot was named to Newsweek's 'America's Most Trustworthy Companies' list and was named manufacturer of the year for robot vacuums by Chip.De. The Roomba j7 Series was lauded by Tom's Guide, Better Homes & Gardens and TechHive in North America, La Vanguardia in Spain, BBC Science Focus Magazine in the U.K. and Presse Citron in France. In addition, the Aair 3-in-1 Pro air purifier was named a Product Design Finalist by IHA.

  • In early April, in conjunction with supporting National Robotics Week, an event that iRobot founded and organized, the company introduced the Create 3, an advanced developer platform based on the Roomba i3 Series robot that is designed to promote higher-level exploration for those seeking to advance their education or career in robotics.

iRobot Corporation
Explanation of Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to disclosing financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP, this earnings release contains references to the non-GAAP financial measures described below. We use non-GAAP measures to internally evaluate and analyze financial results. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with useful supplemental information about the financial performance of our business, enable comparison of financial results between periods where certain items may vary independent of business performance, and enable comparison of our financial results with other public companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures.

Our non-GAAP financial measures reflect adjustments based on the following items. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations from these results should be carefully evaluated.

Amortization of acquired intangible assets: Amortization of acquired intangible assets consists of amortization of intangible assets including completed technology, customer relationships, and reacquired distribution rights acquired in connection with business combinations. Amortization charges for our acquisition-related intangible assets are inconsistent in size and are significantly impacted by the timing and valuation of our acquisitions. We exclude these charges from our non-GAAP measures to facilitate an evaluation of our current operating performance and comparisons to our past operating performance.

Net Merger, Acquisition and Divestiture (Income) Expense: Net merger, acquisition and divestiture (income) expense primarily consists of transaction fees, professional fees, and transition and integration costs directly associated with mergers, acquisitions and divestitures. It also includes business combination adjustments including adjustments after the measurement period has ended. The occurrence and amount of these costs will vary depending on the timing and size of these transactions. We exclude these charges from our non-GAAP measures to facilitate an evaluation of our current operating performance and comparisons to our past operating performance.

Stock-Based Compensation: Stock-based compensation is a non-cash charge relating to stock-based awards. We exclude this expense as it is a non-cash expense, and we assess our internal operations excluding this expense and believe it facilitates comparisons to the performance of other companies.

Tariff Refunds: iRobot's Section 301 List 3 Tariff Exclusion was reinstated in March 2022, which temporarily eliminates tariffs on the Company's products imported from China until December 31, 2022 and entitles the Company to a refund of all related tariffs previously paid since October 12, 2021. We exclude the refunds for tariffs paid in 2021 from our 2022 first-quarter non-GAAP measures because those tariff refunds associated with tariff costs incurred in the past have no impact to our current period earnings.

IP Litigation Expense, Net: IP litigation expense, net relates to legal costs incurred to litigate patent, trademark, copyright and false advertising infringements, or to oppose or defend against interparty actions related to intellectual property. Any settlement payment or proceeds resulting from these infringements are included or netted against the costs. We exclude these costs from our non-GAAP measures as we do not believe these costs have a direct correlation to the operations of our business and may vary in size depending on the timing and results of such litigations and settlements.

Restructuring and Other: Restructuring charges are related to one-time actions associated with realigning resources, enhancing operational productivity and efficiency, or improving the company's cost structure in support of the company's strategy. Such actions are not reflective of ongoing operations and include costs primarily associated with severance costs, certain professional fees, costs associated with consolidation of warehouses, and other non-recurring costs directly associated with resource realignments tied to strategic initiatives or changes in business conditions. We exclude this item from our non-GAAP measures when evaluating our recent and prospective business performance as such items vary significantly based on the magnitude of the action and do not reflect anticipated future operating costs. In addition, these charges do not necessarily provide meaningful insight into the fundamentals of current or past operations of our business.

Gain/Loss on Strategic Investments: Gain/loss on strategic investments includes fair value adjustments, realized gains and losses on the sales of these investments and losses on the impairment of these investments. We exclude these items from our non-GAAP measures because we do not believe they correlate to the performance of our core business and may vary in size based on market conditions and events. We believe that the exclusion of these gains or losses provides investors with a supplemental view of our operational performance.

Income tax adjustments: Income tax adjustments include the tax effect of the non-GAAP adjustments, calculated using the appropriate statutory tax rate for each adjustment. We reassess the need for any valuation allowance recorded based on the non-GAAP profitability and have eliminated the effect of the valuation allowance recorded in the U.S. jurisdiction. We also exclude certain tax items, including impact from stock-based compensation windfalls/shortfalls, that are not reflective of income tax expense incurred as a result of current period earnings. We believe disclosure of the income tax provision before the effect of such tax items is important to permit investors' consistent earnings comparison between periods.
