Three Months Ended December 27, 2008 (“First Quarter of Fiscal 2009”) Compared to Three Months Ended December 29, 2007 (“First Quarter of Fiscal 2008”)

Highlights for the First Quarter of Fiscal 2009 include:

 

 

 

 

On September 28, 2008 the Company acquired substantially all of the assets of SANS Group (“SANS”) for $50.0 million. SANS has manufacturing facilities in both Shenzhen and Shanghai, China, and is headquartered in Shenzhen. SANS manufactures material testing solutions and offers a variety of products, including electro-mechanical and static-hydraulic testing machines. The results of operations for SANS have been included in the Company’s results of operations since the date of the acquisition, and are reported in the Company’s Test segment. Orders for SANS for the First Quarter of Fiscal 2009 were $5.5 million. SANS reported a $2.3 million loss from operations during the First Quarter of Fiscal 2009, on $3.3 million of revenue, driven by reduced gross profit and increased operating expenses associated with acquisition-related items.

 

 

 

 

Orders for the First Quarter of Fiscal 2009 decreased 22.8% to $95.3 million, compared to $123.5 million for the First Quarter of Fiscal 2008, as worldwide economic decline had a negative impact on both the Test and Sensors segments.

 

 

 

 

Revenue for the First Quarter of Fiscal 2009 increased 8.6% to $116.6 million, compared to $107.4 million in the First Quarter of Fiscal 2008. This increase was primarily due to a 15.3% increase in the organic Test business, driven by higher opening backlog, and a 3.0% benefit from SANS, partially offset by a 14.3% decline in the Sensors segment and a 3.4% unfavorable impact of currency translation.

 

 

 

 

Income from operations for the First Quarter of Fiscal 2009 was relatively flat at $11.9 million, compared to $12.1 million for the First Quarter of Fiscal 2008, as the unfavorable impact of the volume decline in the Sensors segment, as well as a $2.3 million operating loss from SANS, more than offset increased volume and reduced operating expenses in the organic Test business.

 

 

 

 

The effective tax rate for the First Quarter of Fiscal 2009 was 24.1%, a decrease of 11.0 percentage points compared to a tax rate of 35.1% for the First Quarter of Fiscal 2008. This decrease was primarily due to legislation enacted in the First Quarter of Fiscal 2009 that extended U.S. R&D credits, with an effective date that is retroactive to January 1, 2008. The R&D credits provided a tax benefit of $1.0 million.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Earnings per diluted share for the First Quarter of Fiscal 2009 increased $0.10, or 21.3%, to $0.57, compared to $0.47 for the First Quarter of Fiscal 2008. A lower tax rate, as well reduced shares outstanding in the First Quarter of Fiscal 2009 favorably impacted earnings per diluted share by $0.08 and $0.03, respectively.

 

 

 

 

Cash and cash equivalents at the end of the First Quarter of Fiscal 2009 totaled $104.8 million, compared to $114.1 million at the end of the First Quarter of Fiscal 2008. Cash flows from operations generated $5.5 million. During the First Quarter of Fiscal 2009, the Company borrowed $16.0 million from its credit facility, paid an additional $18.9 million for the acquisition of SANS, invested $3.0 million in capital expenditures, and purchased 120,100 shares of common stock for $3.6 million.
