Plantronics Announces Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2014 Results

Plantronics, Inc. (NYSE: PLT) today announced third quarter fiscal year 2014 results. Highlights of the quarter include the following (comparisons are against the third quarter of fiscal year 2013):

  • Net revenues were $212.7 million, an increase of 8% compared with $197.4 million.
  • GAAP gross margin was 51.9% compared with 51.8%; non-GAAP gross margin was 52.2% compared with 52.2% due primarily to a one-time ~130 basis point net benefit to GAAP and Non-GAAP margins as a result of warranty and return material authorization adjustments, partially offset by a higher mix of lower margin consumer products.
  • GAAP operating income was $37.8 million compared with $34.6 million, and was above guidance of $30 million to $33 million; non-GAAP operating income was $43.9 million compared with $41.7 million, and was above guidance of $36 million to $39 million. GAAP operating income benefited from one-time tax benefits in the quarter, which benefits are excluded from Non-GAAP operating income.
  • GAAP diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) was $0.80 compared with $0.66, and was above our guidance of $0.50 to $0.55.
  • Non-GAAP diluted EPS was $0.76 compared with $0.73, and was above our guidance of $0.60 to $0.65.

A reconciliation between our GAAP and non-GAAP results is provided in the tables at the end of this press release.

“Strong Unified Communications (“UC”) and Mobile revenue combined with several one-time benefits and lower than anticipated expenses drove our EPS performance,” said Ken Kannappan, President & CEO. “We believe we are well positioned in our major markets, with a robust product pipeline and recent advances in the emerging wearables market. We remain committed to growing earnings commensurate with revenue growth.”

“We generated approximately $34.5 million in cash flow from operations in the third quarter of fiscal year 2014, and our cash, cash equivalents and short and long term investments ended at approximately $429 million,” said Pam Strayer, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. “We continue to make progress in investing in our infrastructure for future growth, with the successful consolidation of our Mexican manufacturing operations to our new lower cost plant and our ERP implementation is on-track to go live in the June quarter of fiscal 2015.”

Office and Contact Center (“OCC”) net revenues increased 5% to $146.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2014 compared with $139.5 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 driven by the strength of UC revenues, a subset of OCC. Net revenues from UC products grew by 20% to $43.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2014 compared with $36.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Mobile net revenues were $52.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2014, an increase of 20% compared with $44.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Dividend Announcement

We also announced that our Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.10 per share. The dividend will be payable on March 10, 2014 to stockholders of record at the close of business on February 20, 2014.

Business Outlook

The following statements are based on our current expectations and many of these statements are forward-looking. Actual results are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties and may differ materially from our expectations.

We have a “book and ship” business model whereby we fulfill the majority of orders received within 48 hours of receipt of those orders. However, our backlog is occasionally subject to cancellation or rescheduling by our customers on short notice with little or no penalty. Therefore, there is a lack of meaningful correlation between backlog at the end of a fiscal period and net revenues in a succeeding fiscal period.

Our business is inherently difficult to forecast, particularly with continuing uncertainty in regional economic conditions, and there can be no assurance that expectations of incoming orders over the balance of the current quarter will materialize.

Subject to the foregoing, we currently expect the following range of financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014:

  • Net revenues of $200 million to $210 million;
  • GAAP operating income of $30 million to $34 million;
  • Non-GAAP operating income of $36 million to $40 million, excluding the impact of $6 million from stock-based compensation and purchase accounting amortization from GAAP operating income;
  • Assuming approximately 43.0 million diluted average weighted shares outstanding:
    • GAAP diluted EPS of $0.52 to $0.58;
    • Non-GAAP diluted EPS of $0.62 to $0.68; and
    • Cost of stock-based compensation and purchase accounting amortization to be approximately $0.10 per diluted share.

Please see our updated Investor Relations Presentation available on our corporate website at www.plantronics.com/ir.

Conference Call Scheduled to Discuss Financial Results

We have scheduled a conference call to discuss third quarter fiscal year 2014 results. The conference call will take place today, January 27, 2014, at 2:00 PM (Pacific Time). All interested investors and potential investors in our stock are invited to participate. To listen to the call, please dial in five to ten minutes prior to the scheduled starting time and refer to the “Plantronics Conference Call.” Participants from North America should call (888) 301-8736 and other participants should call (706) 634-7260.

The conference call will also be simultaneously webcast in the Investor Relations section of our corporate website at www.plantronics.com/ir, and the webcast of the conference call will remain available on our website for one month.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, we use non-GAAP measures of operating results, which are adjusted to exclude certain non-cash expenses and charges. Specifically, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP diluted EPS, as presented in this release exclude stock-based compensation related to stock options, restricted stock and employee stock purchases made under our employee stock purchase plan, purchase accounting amortization and accelerated depreciation, and early lease termination charges (all net of the associated tax impact, tax benefits from the release of tax reserves, transfer pricing, transfer pricing, tax deduction and tax credit adjustments, and the impact tax law changes). We exclude these expenses from our non-GAAP measures primarily because Plantronics’ management does not believe they are part of our target operating model and management uses the non-GAAP measures to evaluate Plantronics’ business. We believe that the use of non-GAAP financial measures provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance and liquidity and helps investors compare actual results with our long-term target operating model goals. We believe that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods; however, non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, gross margin, operating income, operating margin, net income or EPS prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Safe Harbor

This release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including statements relating to (i) our belief that we are well positioned in our major markets with a robust product pipeline and recent advances in the emerging wearables market, (ii) our prospects for future growth, (iii) the timeline for completion of our ERP implementation, (iv) our estimates of GAAP and non-GAAP financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014, including net revenues, operating income and diluted EPS; (v) our estimates of stock-based compensation and purchase accounting amortization and other related charges, as well as the impact of these non-cash expenses on Non-GAAP operating income and diluted EPS for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014; and (vi) our estimate of weighted average shares outstanding for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014;, in addition to other matters discussed in this press release that are not purely historical data. We do not assume any obligation to update or revise any such forward-looking statements, whether as the result of new developments or otherwise.

Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by such statements. Among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated are:

  • Micro and macro economic conditions in our domestic and international markets;
  • our ability to realize our UC plans and to achieve the financial results projected to arise from UC adoption could be adversely affected by a variety of factors including the following: (i) as UC becomes more widely adopted, the risk that competitors will offer solutions that will effectively commoditize our headsets which, in turn, will reduce the sales prices for our headsets; (ii) our plans are dependent upon adoption of our UC solution by major platform providers and strategic partners such as Microsoft Corporation, Cisco Systems, Inc., Avaya, Inc., Alcatel-Lucent, and IBM, and we have a limited ability to influence such providers with respect to the functionality of their platforms or their product offerings, their rate of deployment, and their willingness to integrate their platforms and product offerings with our solutions, and our support expenditures may substantially increase over time due to the complex nature of the platforms and product offerings developed by the major UC providers as these platforms and product offerings continue to evolve and become more commonly adopted; (iii) the development of UC solutions is technically complex and this may delay or limit our ability to introduce solutions to the market on a timely basis and that are cost effective, feature rich, stable and attractive to our customers on a timely basis; (iv) our development of UC solutions is dependent on our ability to implement and execute new and different processes in connection with the design, development and manufacturing of complex electronic systems comprised of hardware, firmware and software that must work in a wide variety of environments and multiple variations, which may in some instances increase the risk of development delays or errors and require the hiring of new personnel and/or fourth party contractors which increases our costs; (v) because UC offerings involve complex integration of hardware and software with UC infrastructure, our sales model and expertise will need to continue to evolve; (vi) as UC becomes more widely adopted we anticipate that competition for market share will increase, and some competitors may have superior technical and economic resources; (vii) UC solutions may not be adopted with the breadth and speed in the marketplace that we currently anticipate; and, (viii) UC may evolve rapidly and unpredictably and our inability to timely and cost-effectively adapt to those changes and future requirements may impact our profitability in this market and our overall margins;
  • failure to match production to demand given long lead times and the difficulty of forecasting unit volumes and acquiring the component parts and materials to meet demand without having excess inventory or incurring cancellation charges;
  • volatility in prices from our suppliers, including our manufacturers located in China, have in the past and could in the future negatively affect our profitability and/or market share;
  • fluctuations in foreign exchange rates;
  • with respect to our stock repurchase program, prevailing stock market conditions generally, and the price of our stock specifically;
  • the bankruptcy or financial weakness of distributors or key customers, or the bankruptcy of or reduction in capacity of our key suppliers;
  • additional risk factors including: interruption in the supply of sole-sourced critical components, continuity of component supply at costs consistent with our plans, and the inherent risks of our substantial foreign operations; and
  • seasonality in one or more of our business segments.

For more information concerning these and other possible risks, please refer to our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 24, 2013 and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as well as recent press releases.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, we use non-GAAP measures of operating results, which are adjusted to exclude certain non-cash expenses and charges from non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP diluted EPS, including stock-based compensation related to stock options, restricted stock and employee stock purchases made under our employee stock purchase plan, purchase accounting amortization, accelerated depreciation, and early lease termination charges, all net of the associated tax impact, tax benefits from the release of tax reserves, transfer pricing, transfer pricing, tax deduction and tax credit adjustments, and the impact tax law changes. We exclude these expenses from our non-GAAP measures primarily because Plantronics’ management does not believe they are part of our target operating model. We believe that the use of non-GAAP financial measures provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance and liquidity and helps investors compare actual results with our long-term target operating model goals. We believe that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods; however, non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, gross margin, operating income, operating margin, net income or EPS prepared in accordance with GAAP.
