LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., August 03, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zebra Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: ZBRA), an innovator at the edge of the enterprise with solutions and partners that enable businesses to gain a performance edge, today announced results for the second quarter ended July 3, 2021.

"Our exceptional second quarter performance was driven by continued broad-based demand for our solutions and excellent operational execution. Despite ongoing industry-wide supply chain challenges, our team met customers’ mission critical needs, while delivering record sales and profitability that exceeded our outlook," said Anders Gustafsson, Chief Executive Officer of Zebra Technologies. "While we continue to see extended lead times for certain product components and escalating global shipping costs, we enter the second half of the year with a strong order backlog and a robust pipeline of business which supports the significant increase to our full-year sales outlook. Additionally, we are excited about our entry into vibrant markets that advance our Enterprise Asset Intelligence vision, including our recent launch of fixed industrial scanning & machine vision solutions, as well as our pending acquisition of Fetch Robotics."

Net sales were $1,377 million in the second quarter of 2021 compared to $956 million in the second quarter of 2020. Net sales in the Enterprise Visibility & Mobility ("EVM") segment were $959 million in the second quarter of 2021 compared with $683 million in the second quarter of 2020. Asset Intelligence & Tracking ("AIT") segment net sales were $421 million in the second quarter of 2021 compared to $273 million in the prior year period. Consolidated organic net sales for the second quarter increased 39.8%. Second-quarter year-over-year organic net sales increased by 35.1% in the EVM segment and increased by 51.2% in the AIT segment.

Second quarter 2021 gross profit was $658 million compared to $419 million in the prior year period. Gross margin increased to 47.8% for the second quarter of 2021 compared to 43.8% in the prior year period. This increase was primarily due to favorable business mix, $12 million recovery of Chinese import tariffs, higher support service margin and contribution from our higher margin business acquisitions. This favorability was partially offset by higher premium freight costs. Adjusted gross margin was 48.0% in the second quarter of 2021 compared to 44.1% in the prior year period.

Operating expenses increased in the second quarter of 2021 to $411 million from $300 million in the prior year period, primarily due to higher employee incentive-based compensation expense associated with improved financial performance, the inclusion of operating and amortization expenses associated with recently acquired businesses, and increased investments in research and development. Adjusted operating expenses increased in the second quarter of 2021 to $356 million from $264 million in the prior year period.

Net income for the second quarter of 2021 was $219 million, or $4.07 per diluted share, compared to net income of $100 million, or $1.85 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2020. Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2021 increased to $247 million, or $4.57 per diluted share, compared to $130 million, or $2.41 per diluted share, for the prior year period.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2021 increased to $325 million, or 23.6% of adjusted net sales, compared to $175 million, or 18.3% of adjusted net sales, for the second quarter of 2020 due to higher gross profits and lower operating expenses as a percentage of sales.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of July 3, 2021, the company had cash and cash equivalents of $318 million and total debt of $996 million.

For the first six months of 2021, the company generated $539 million of operating cash flow and incurred capital expenditures of $25 million, resulting in free cash flow of $514 million. The company also acquired Adaptive Vision for $18 million and made $17 million in venture investments.

For the first six months of 2021, the company made net debt repayments of $256 million. Additionally, the company made $25 million of share repurchases in the first six months under its existing authorization.

Outlook

Third Quarter 2021

The company expects third quarter 2021 adjusted net sales to increase 21% to 25% from the third quarter of 2020 as we continue to experience strong broad-based demand for our solutions as the global economy continues to recover from the pandemic. This expectation includes an approximately 3 percentage point additive impact from the Reflexis acquisition and foreign currency translation and reflects industry-wide supply chain challenges.

Adjusted EBITDA margin for the third quarter of 2021 is expected to be approximately 20% to 21%, which includes approximately $45 million of premium freight expense. Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share are expected to be in the range of $3.90 to $4.10. This assumes an adjusted effective tax rate of approximately 18% to 19%.

Full-Year 2021

The Company now expects adjusted net sales to increase 23% to 25% from 2020, which includes an approximately 3 percentage point additive impact from business acquisitions and foreign currency translation and reflects industry-wide supply chain challenges.

Adjusted EBITDA margin is expected to be approximately 22% to 23%, which includes $135-140 million of premium freight expense.

Free cash flow is now expected to be at least $900 million.

The outlook amounts provided above do not include any projected results from the acquisition of Fetch Robotics, which is expected to close in the third quarter of 2021.

The company does not provide a reconciliation for non-GAAP estimates on a forward-looking basis where it is unable to provide a meaningful or accurate calculation or estimation of reconciling items and the information is not available without unreasonable effort. This is due to the inherent difficulty of forecasting the timing or amount of the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measure as discussed under the "Forward-Looking Statements" caption below. This would include items that have not yet occurred, are out of the company’s control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted, and that would impact diluted net earnings per share. For the same reasons, the company is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information. Forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures provided without the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures may vary materially from the corresponding GAAP financial measures.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements, as defined by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including, without limitation, the statements regarding the company’s outlook. Actual results may differ from those expressed or implied in the company’s forward-looking statements. These statements represent estimates only as of the date they were made. Zebra undertakes no obligation, other than as may be required by law, to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, changed circumstances or any other reason after the date of this release.

These forward-looking statements are based on current expectations, forecasts and assumptions and are subject to the risks and uncertainties inherent in Zebra’s industry, market conditions, general domestic and international economic conditions, and other factors. These factors include customer acceptance of Zebra’s hardware and software products and competitors’ product offerings, and the potential effects of technological changes. The continued uncertainty over future global economic conditions, the availability of credit and capital markets volatility may have adverse effects on Zebra, its suppliers and its customers. In addition, a disruption in our ability to obtain products from vendors as a result of supply chain constraints, natural disasters, public health issues (including pandemics), or other circumstances could restrict sales and negatively affect customer relationships. Profits and profitability will be affected by Zebra’s ability to control manufacturing and operating costs. Because of its debt, interest rates and financial market conditions will also have an impact on results. Foreign exchange rates will have an effect on financial results because of the large percentage of our international sales. The outcome of litigation in which Zebra may be involved is another factor. The success of integrating acquisitions could also affect profitability, reported results and the company’s competitive position in its industry. These and other factors could have an adverse effect on Zebra’s sales, gross profit margins and results of operations and increase the volatility of our financial results. When used in this release and documents referenced, the words "anticipate," "believe," "outlook," and "expect" and similar expressions, as they relate to the company or its management, are intended to identify such forward-looking statements, but are not the exclusive means of identifying these statements. Descriptions of the risks, uncertainties and other factors that could affect the company’s future operations and results can be found in Zebra’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the company’s most recent Form 10-K and Form 10-Q.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains certain Non-GAAP financial measures, consisting of "adjusted net sales," "adjusted gross profit," "EBITDA," "Adjusted EBITDA," "Non-GAAP net income," "Non-GAAP earnings per share," "free cash flow," "organic net sales growth," and "adjusted operating expenses." Management presents these measures to focus on the on-going operations and believes it is useful to investors because they enable them to perform meaningful comparisons of past and present operating results. The company believes it is useful to present non-GAAP financial measures, which exclude certain significant items, as a means to understand the performance of its ongoing operations and how management views the business. Please see the "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures" tables and accompanying disclosures at the end of this press release for more detailed information regarding non-GAAP financial measures herein, including the items reflected in adjusted net earnings calculations. These measures, however, should not be construed as an alternative to any other measure of performance determined in accordance with GAAP.

The company does not provide a reconciliation for non-GAAP estimates on a forward-looking basis (including the information under "Outlook" above) where it is unable to provide a meaningful or accurate calculation or estimation of reconciling items and the information is not available without unreasonable effort. This is due to the inherent difficulty of forecasting the timing or amount of various items that have not yet occurred, are out of the company’s control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted, and that would impact diluted net earnings per share, the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measure. For the same reasons, the company is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information. Forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures provided without the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures may vary materially from the corresponding GAAP financial measures.

As a global company, Zebra's operating results reported in U.S. dollars are affected by foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations because the underlying foreign currencies in which the company transacts change in value over time compared to the U.S. dollar; accordingly, the company presents certain organic growth financial information, which includes impacts of foreign currency translation, to provide a framework to assess how the company’s businesses performed excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. Foreign currency impact represents the difference in results that are attributable to fluctuations in the currency exchange rates used to convert the results for businesses where the functional currency is not the U.S. dollar. This impact is calculated by translating current period results at the currency exchange rates used in the comparable period in the prior year, rather than the exchange rates in effect during the current period. In addition, the company excludes the impact of its foreign currency hedging program in the prior year periods. The company believes these measures should be considered a supplement to and not in lieu of the company’s performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

(1)

Free cash flow is defined as Net cash provided by operating activities in a period minus purchases of property, plant and equipment (capital expenditures) made in that period. This measure does not represent residual cash flows available for discretionary expenditures as the measure does not deduct the payments required for debt service and other contractual obligations or payments for future business acquisitions. Therefore, we believe it is important to view free cash flow as a measure that provides supplemental information to our entire statements of cash flows.
