SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) today announced fourth quarter and fiscal 2011 results.

Fourth Quarter 2011 Results

For the fourth quarter of 2011, Trimble had revenue of $435.2 million, up approximately 35 percent as compared to the fourth quarter of 2010.

GAAP operating income for the fourth quarter of 2011 was $28.7 million, up 49 percent as compared to the fourth quarter of 2010.  GAAP operating margin in the fourth quarter of 2011 was 6.6 percent as compared to 6.0 percent in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Fourth quarter 2011 GAAP net income was $29.4, down 20 percent as compared to the fourth quarter of 2010.  Diluted earnings per share in the fourth quarter of 2011 were $0.23 as compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.29 in the fourth quarter of 2010.  When looking at year-over-year GAAP net income and earnings per share it should be noted that in the fourth quarter of 2010 there was a tax benefit of 61 percent versus a tax rate of 8 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011.  The fourth quarter 2010 tax benefit was primarily due to a non-recurring income tax benefit for a valuation allowance release of $7.6 million and a catch up on research and development tax credits due to legislation passed in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Fourth quarter 2011 non-GAAP operating income of $68.8 million was up 48 percent as compared to the fourth quarter of 2010.  Non-GAAP operating margin was 15.8 percent as compared to 14.3 percent in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Non-GAAP net income of $67.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2011 was up 19 percent as compared to the fourth quarter of 2010.  Diluted non-GAAP earnings per share in the fourth quarter of 2011 were $0.54 as compared to diluted non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.46 in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Fourth quarter 2011 non-GAAP results exclude:

  • Restructuring expense of $644 thousand as compared to $641 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2010;
  • Amortization of intangibles of $29.2 million as compared to $15.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2010;
  • Stock-based compensation expense of $7.4 million as compared to $7.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2010;
  • Acquisition-related inventory step-up charge of $739 thousand as compared to $589 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2010;
  • Acquisition-related costs of $1.9 million as compared to $3.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2010;
  • Loss on foreign exchange of $1.7 million from hedges associated with acquisitions as compared to no loss in the fourth quarter of 2010;
  • A non-recurring income tax benefit for a valuation allowance release of $7.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2010.  There was no such tax benefit in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Fiscal 2011 GAAP net income was $150.8 million, up 45 percent as compared to fiscal 2010.  Diluted earnings per share in fiscal 2011 were $1.20 as compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.84 in fiscal 2010.

Fiscal 2011 non-GAAP results exclude:

  • Restructuring expense of $2.8 million as compared to $2.0 million in fiscal 2010;
  • Amortization of intangibles of $85.9 million as compared to $57.6 million in fiscal 2010;

"Our performance in the fourth quarter capped a strong year which exceeded our original expectations," said Steven W. Berglund, Trimble's president and chief executive officer.  "We carry this momentum with us into 2012 which, subject to worldwide economic conditions, is expected to be another strong year."

Segment operating income is revenue less cost of goods sold and operating expenses, excluding general corporate expenses, restructuring expenses, amortization of intangibles, amortization of acquisition-related inventory step-up charges and acquisition costs.  Non-GAAP segment operating income also excludes the impact of stock-based compensation expense.

Engineering and Construction (E&C)

Fourth quarter 2011 E&C revenue was $238.7 million, up 30 percent as compared to the fourth quarter of 2010.  This growth was driven by strong sales of heavy and highway solutions, double-digit growth in survey product sales and the Tekla acquisition.

Fourth quarter operating income in E&C was $36.6 million, or 15.3 percent of revenue as compared to $21.6 million, or 11.8 percent of revenue in the fourth quarter of 2010.  Non-GAAP operating income was $39.4 million, or 16.5 percent of revenue, as compared to $24.0 million, or 13.1 percent of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2010.  The improvement in operating income was due to operating leverage as a result of increased revenue.

Fiscal 2011 E&C revenue was $906.5 million, up 26 percent as compared to fiscal 2010, driven primarily by strong sales across product lines and, to a lesser extent, the Tekla acquisition.

Operating income in E&C for fiscal 2011 was $149.0 million, or 16.4 percent of revenue, as compared to $111.0 million, or 15.4 percent of revenue in fiscal 2010.  Non-GAAP operating income was $159.2 million, or 17.6 percent of revenue, as compared to $118.9 million, or 16.5 percent of revenue in fiscal 2010.  Non-GAAP operating margin was higher due to operating leverage from increased revenue.

Field Solutions

Fourth quarter 2011 Field Solutions revenue was $95.5 million, up 28 percent as compared to the fourth quarter of 2010 due to strong sales of agriculture and geographic information system (GIS) products and the acquisition of Tekla.

Fourth quarter 2011 Field Solutions operating income was $34.1 million, or 35.7 percent of revenue, as compared to $27.1 million, or 36.1 percent of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2010.  Non-GAAP operating income was $34.7 million, or 36.3 percent of revenue, as compared to $27.6 million, or 36.9 percent of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2010.  Without the impact of the Tekla acquisition, Field Solutions operating margins were up for the quarter.

Fiscal 2011 Field Solutions revenue was $413.7 million, up 30 percent as compared to fiscal 2010 due primarily to strong sales across the product lines and, to a lesser extent, the Tekla acquisition.

Fiscal 2011 Field Solutions operating income was $160.1 million, or 38.7 percent of revenue, as compared to $116.4 million, or 36.6 percent of revenue, in fiscal 2010.  Non-GAAP operating income was $162.4 million, or 39.3 percent of revenue, as compared to $118.4 million, or 37.2 percent of revenue, in fiscal 2010.  Non-GAAP operating margins were up due to operating leverage on increased revenue.

Mobile Solutions

Fourth quarter 2011 Mobile Solutions revenue was $75.8 million, up 88 percent as compared to the fourth quarter of 2010 primarily due to the PeopleNet acquisition.  The base business also displayed double-digit organic growth.

Fourth quarter 2011 Mobile Solutions operating income was $6.0 million, or 7.9 percent of revenue, as compared to an operating loss of $267 thousand, or negative 0.7 percent of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2010.  Non-GAAP operating income was $6.4 million, or 8.5 percent of revenue, as compared to operating income of $931 thousand, or 2.3 percent of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2010.  The improvement in non-GAAP operating margin was due to the PeopleNet acquisition and increased profitability from the base business.

Fiscal 2011 Mobile Solutions revenue was $218.5 million, up 42 percent as compared to fiscal 2010 due primarily to the PeopleNet acquisition and growth within the base business, partially offset by the loss of a large customer in the second quarter of 2010.

Fiscal 2011 Mobile Solutions operating income was $4.5 million, or 2.0 percent of revenue, as compared to $1.9 million, or 1.2 percent of revenue in fiscal 2010.  Non-GAAP operating income was $7.4 million, or 3.4 percent of revenue, as compared to operating income of $5.3 million, or 3.4 percent of revenue, in fiscal 2010.

Advanced Devices

Fourth quarter 2011 Advanced Devices revenue was $25.2 million, up 2 percent as compared to the fourth quarter of 2010.

Operating income in Advanced Devices for the fourth quarter 2011 was $3.5 million, or 13.7 percent of revenue, as compared to $3.4 million, or 14.0 percent of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2010.  Non-GAAP operating income in Advanced Devices was $4.1 million, or 16.1 percent of revenue, as compared to $4.0 million, or 16.3 percent of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Fiscal 2011 Advanced Devices revenue was $105.3 million, up 3 percent as compared to fiscal 2010.

Fiscal 2011 Advanced Devices operating income was $13.9 million, or 13.2 percent of revenue, as compared to $18.3 million, or 17.9 percent of revenue in fiscal 2010.  Non-GAAP operating income was $16.5 million, or 15.6 percent of revenue, as compared to non-GAAP operating income of $20.3 million, or 19.8 percent of revenue, in fiscal 2010.  Non-GAAP operating margins were down versus the prior year due primarily to product mix.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To help our investors understand our past financial performance and our future results, as well as our performance relative to competitors, we supplement the financial results that we provide in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, with non-GAAP financial measures.  These non-GAAP measures can be used to evaluate our historical and prospective financial performance, as well as our performance relative to competitors. Our management regularly uses our supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate our business, and to make operating decisions. These non-GAAP measures are among the primary factors management uses in planning for and forecasting future periods. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of our operations that, when viewed with our GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business. Further, we believe some of our investors track our "core operating performance" as a means of evaluating our performance in the ordinary, ongoing, and customary course of our operations.  Core operating performance excludes items that are non-cash, not expected to recur or not reflective of ongoing financial results. Management also believes that looking at our core operating performance provides a supplemental way to provide consistency in period to period comparisons.  

The specific non-GAAP measures which we use along with a reconciliation to the nearest comparable GAAP measures and the explanation for why these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors regarding our financial condition and results of operations and why management chose to exclude selected items can be found at the end of this release. The method we use to produce non-GAAP results is not computed according to GAAP and may differ from the methods used by other companies. Our non-GAAP results are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP results, which is attached to this earnings release.  Additional financial information about our use of non-GAAP results can be found on the investor relations page of our Web site at http://investor.trimble.com.

Forward Looking Guidance

For the first quarter of 2012 Trimble expects revenue between $477 million and $482 million with GAAP earnings per share of $0.32 to $0.34 and non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.61 to $0.63.  Non-GAAP guidance excludes the amortization of intangibles and acquisition expense of $35.5 million related to previous acquisitions and the anticipated impact of stock-based compensation expense of $7.6 million. Both GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per share assume a 15 to 17 percent tax rate, 128.0 million shares outstanding and interest costs of $3.0 million.

FOOTNOTES TO GAAP TO NON-GAAP RECONCILIATION














(Unaudited)














Our non-GAAP measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures. The non-GAAP financial measures included in the previous table as well as detailed explanations to the adjustments to comparable GAAP measures, are set forth below:


Non-GAAP gross margin


We believe our investors benefit by understanding our non-GAAP gross margin as a way of understanding how product mix, pricing decisions and manufacturing costs influence our business.  Non-GAAP gross margin excludes restructuring costs, amortization of purchased intangibles, stock-based compensation and amortization of acquisition-related inventory step-up from GAAP gross margin. We believe that these exclusions offer investors additional information that may be useful to view trends in our gross margin performance.


Non-GAAP operating expenses


We believe this measure is important to investors evaluating our non-GAAP spending in relation to revenue. Non-GAAP operating expenses exclude restructuring costs, amortization of purchased intangibles, stock-based compensation and acquisition costs associated with external and incremental costs resulting directly from merger and acquisition activities such as legal, due diligence and integration costs from GAAP operating expenses. We believe that these exclusions offer investors supplemental information to facilitate comparison of our operating expenses to our prior results.  



Non-GAAP operating income


We believe our investors benefit by understanding our non-GAAP operating income trends which are driven by revenue, gross margin, and spending. Non-GAAP operating income excludes restructuring costs, amortization of purchased intangibles, stock-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related inventory step-up and acquisition costs associated with external and incremental costs resulting directly from merger and acquisition activities such as legal, due diligence and integration costs. We believe that these exclusions offer an alternative means for our investors to evaluate current operating performance compared to results of other periods.  


Non-GAAP non-operating income, net


We believe this measure helps investors evaluate our non-operating income trends. Non-GAAP non-operating income, net excludes acquisition costs associated with unusual acquisition related items such as a gain on bargain purchase (resulting from the fair value of identifiable net assets acquired exceeding the consideration transferred), adjustments to the fair value of earn-out liabilities and payments made or received to settle earn-out and holdback disputes. These costs are specific to particular acquisitions and vary significantly in amount and timing. Non-GAAP non-operating income (expense), net also excludes the write-off of debt issuance costs associated with a terminated credit facility as well as foreign exchange (gains)/losses specifically associated with hedges for our acquisitions. We believe that these exclusions provide investors with a supplemental view of our ongoing financial results.


Non-GAAP income tax provision (benefit)


Investors benefit from the exclusion of an IRS settlement and valuation allowance release because it facilitates comparisons to our past income tax provision. Non-GAAP income tax provision (benefit) excludes an IRS settlement and a valuation allowance release from GAAP income tax provision (benefit) and includes non-GAAP items tax effected. Non-GAAP items tax effected adjusts the provision for income taxes to reflect the effect of certain non-GAAP items on non-GAAP net income. We believe this information is useful to investors because it provides for consistent treatment of the excluded items in our non-GAAP presentation.


Non-GAAP net income


This measure provides a supplemental view of net income trends which are driven by non-GAAP income before taxes and our non-GAAP tax rate. Non-GAAP net income excludes restructuring costs, amortization of purchased intangibles, stock-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related inventory step-up, acquisition costs, the write-off of debt issuance costs, foreign exchange (gains)/losses from hedges associated with acquisitions, and non-GAAP tax adjustments from GAAP net income. We believe our investors benefit from understanding these exclusions and from an alternative view of our net income performance as compared to our past net income performance.


Non-GAAP diluted net income per share


We believe our investors benefit by understanding our non-GAAP operating performance as reflected in a per share calculation as a way of measuring non-GAAP operating performance by ownership in the company. Non-GAAP diluted net income per share excludes restructuring costs, amortization of purchased intangibles, stock-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related inventory step-up, acquisition costs, the write-off of debt issuance costs, foreign exchange (gains)/losses from hedges associated with acquisitions, and non-GAAP tax adjustments from GAAP diluted net income per share. We believe that these exclusions offer investors a useful view of our diluted net income per share as compared to our past diluted net income per share.  


Non-GAAP operating leverage


We believe this information is beneficial to investors as a measure of how much incremental revenue is contributed to our operating income. Non-GAAP operating leverage is the increase in non-GAAP operating income as a percentage of the increase in revenue. We believe that this information offers investors supplemental information to evaluate our current performance and to compare to our past non-GAAP operating leverage.  


Non-GAAP segment operating income


Non-GAAP segment operating income excludes stock-based compensation from GAAP segment operating income (loss). We believe this information is useful to investors because some may exclude stock-based compensation as an alternative view when assessing trends in the operating income of our segments.  


These non-GAAP measures can be used to evaluate our historical and prospective financial performance, as well as our performance relative to competitors. We believe some of our investors track our "core operating performance" as a means of evaluating our performance in the ordinary, ongoing, and customary course of our operations. Core operating performance excludes items that are non-cash, not expected to recur or not reflective of ongoing financial results.  Management also believes that looking at our core operating performance provides a supplemental way to provide consistency in period to period comparison.  Accordingly, management excludes from non-GAAP those items relating to restructuring, amortization of purchased intangibles, stock based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related inventory step-up, acquisition costs, the write-off of debt issuance costs associated with a terminated credit facility, foreign exchange gains/losses from hedges associated with acquisitions, and non-GAAP tax adjustments.  For detailed explanations of the adjustments made to comparable GAAP measures, see items (A) - (L) below,

















( A )

Restructuring costs. Included in our GAAP presentation of cost of sales and operating expenses, restructuring costs recorded are primarily for employee compensation resulting from reductions in employee headcount in connection with our company restructurings.  We exclude restructuring costs from our non-GAAP measures because we believe they do not reflect expected future operating expenses, they are not indicative of our core operating performance, and they are not meaningful in comparisons to our past operating performance.  














( B )

Amortization of purchased intangibles. Included in our GAAP presentation of gross margin, operating expenses, operating income, and net income is amortization of purchased intangibles. US GAAP accounting requires that intangible assets are recorded at fair value and amortized over their useful lives. Consequently, the timing and size of our acquisitions will cause our operating results to vary from period to period making a comparison to past performance difficult for investors. This accounting treatment may cause differences when comparing our results to companies that grow internally because the fair value assigned to the intangible assets acquired through acquisition may significantly exceed the equivalent expenses that a company may incur for similar efforts when performed internally. Furthermore, the useful life that we expense our intangible assets over may be substantially different from the time period that an internal growth company incurs and recognizes such expenses. We believe that by excluding purchased intangibles which represents technology and/or customer relationships already developed, it enhances comparability by allowing investors to compare our operations pre-acquisition to those post-acquisitions and to those of our competitors that have pursued internal growth strategies.














( C )

Stock-based compensation. Included in our GAAP presentation of cost of sales and operating expenses, stock-based compensation consists of expenses for employee stock options and awards and purchase rights under our employee stock purchase plan. We exclude stock-based compensation expense from our non-GAAP measures because some investors may view it as not reflective of our core operating performance as it is a non-cash expense.   For the three months and twelve months ended December 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, stock-based compensation was allocated as follows:
