JASPER, Ind., Nov. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kimball Electronics, Inc. (NASDAQ: KE), a leading global electronics manufacturing services provider of high-quality, durable electronic products, today announced financial results for its first quarter ended September 30, 2018.

   
  Three Months Ended
  September 30,
(Amounts in Thousands, except EPS) 2018 (1)   2017
Net Sales $ 265,620     $ 253,204  
Operating Income (2) $ 7,032     $ 9,523  
Adjusted Operating Income (non-GAAP) (2) (3) $ 6,940     $ 9,523  
Operating Income % 2.6 %   3.8 %
Net Income $ 5,069     $ 8,480  
Adjusted Net Income (non-GAAP) (3) $ 4,999     $ 8,480  
Diluted EPS $ 0.19     $ 0.31  


(1) During the three months ended September 30, 2018, the Company adopted the new accounting standard on Revenue from Contracts with Customers on a modified retrospective basis. The adoption was not material to the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Income for the three months ended September 30, 2018.  The prior period was not restated.
(2) Prior period amounts have been restated to reflect the retrospective adoption of new accounting guidance on improving the presentation of net periodic pension cost and net periodic postretirement benefit cost.
(3) A reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures is included below.

Donald D. Charron, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We achieved solid year-over-year organic growth in three of our four end market verticals as the ramp-up of new program launches helped to more than offset softness in certain mature programs.”

Mr. Charron continued, “While this was a challenging quarter for us, we are cautiously optimistic that our goals of 8% organic sales growth and 4.5% operating income remain within our reach for fiscal year 2019.”

First Quarter Fiscal Year 2019 Overview:

  • Consolidated net sales increased 5% organically compared to the first quarter of fiscal year 2018.
  • The current quarter includes non-operating expense of $0.7 million related to pre-tax net losses from foreign currency movements, which compares to pre-tax net gains of $1.1 million recognized in non-operating income in the same quarter of the prior year related to foreign currency movements.
  • The Romania facility continues to progress in its ramp-up and improved its impact to the consolidated operating income percent by 30 basis points compared to the prior year first quarter.
  • Operating activities used cash of $10.0 million during the quarter, which compares to cash used by operating activities of $0.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2018.
  • Cash conversion days (“CCD”) for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 were 68 days, up from 59 days in the same quarter last year.  CCD is calculated as the sum of days sales outstanding plus contract asset days plus production days supply on hand less accounts payable days.
  • $5.4 million was returned to Share Owners during the quarter in the form of common stock repurchases.
  • Investments in capital expenditures were $4.8 million during the quarter.
  • Cash and cash equivalents were $75.0 million and borrowings outstanding on credit facilities were $59.3 million at September 30, 2018.
  • Return on invested capital (“ROIC”), calculated for the trailing twelve months, was 9.3% and 10.2% for the twelve months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively (see reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures for ROIC calculation).

Forward-Looking Statements
Certain statements contained within this release are considered forward-looking under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and are subject to risks and uncertainties including, but not limited to, successful integration of acquisitions and new operations, global economic conditions, geopolitical environment, significant volume reductions from key contract customers, loss of key customers or suppliers, financial stability of key customers and suppliers, availability or cost of raw materials, impact related to tariffs and other trade barriers, and increased competitive pricing pressures reflecting excess industry capacities.  Additional cautionary statements regarding other risk factors that could have an effect on the future performance of the Company are contained in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2018.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures.  A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s financial performance that excludes or includes amounts so as to be different than the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) in the United States in the statement of income, statement of comprehensive income, balance sheet, statement of cash flows, or statement of equity of the Company.  The non-GAAP financial measures contained herein include adjusted operating income, adjusted net income, and ROIC.  These measures include adjustments in the three months ended September 30, 2018 for proceeds from a lawsuit settlement.  Reconciliations of the reported GAAP numbers to these non-GAAP financial measures are included in the financial highlights table below.  Management believes it is useful for investors to understand how its core operations performed without the effects of the proceeds from the lawsuit settlement.  Excluding this amount allows investors to meaningfully trend, analyze, and benchmark the performance of the Company’s core operations.  Many of the Company’s internal performance measures that management uses to make certain operating decisions excludes this item to enable meaningful trending of core operating metrics.
