Richardson Electronics Reports Improved Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2016 Results and Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend

LAFOX, Ill. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 20, 2016 — Richardson Electronics, Ltd. (NASDAQ: RELL) today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended May 28, 2016. The Company also announced that its Board of Directors declared a $0.06 per share quarterly cash dividend.

Fourth Quarter Results

Net sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 were $39.6 million, a 13.2% increase, compared to net sales of $35.0 million in the prior year. Sales increased $3.9 million for PMT and $1.6 million for Healthcare, which includes net sales for International Medical Equipment Systems (“IMES”), acquired early this fiscal year. The increase was partially offset by a $0.9 million decrease in Canvys.

Gross margin increased to $13.4 million, or 33.8% of net sales during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, compared to $10.2 million, or 29.2% of net sales during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. Margin improved as a percent of net sales primarily due to sales of diagnostic imaging replacement parts in the Healthcare business.

Operating expenses increased to $13.7 million for fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, compared to $12.9 million for fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. However, operating expenses as a percent of net sales improved to 34.6% versus 36.8% in the same period last year. The increase in SG&A was due to $1.1 million related to IMES and additional investments in our Richardson Healthcare business and $0.8 million in PMT, partially offset by decreases of $0.3 million in IT services, $0.6 million in our other support functions, and $0.2 million in Canvys.

As a result, operating loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 was $0.3 million, compared to an operating loss of $2.6 million in the prior year’s fourth quarter.

Other expense for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, including foreign exchange, was less than $0.1 million, compared to less than $0.1 million in other income in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015.

The income tax benefit of $0.2 million during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 reflects an adjusted lower provision for foreign taxes as well as the valuation allowance recorded against the net operating loss in the U.S.

Net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 was $0.2 million, compared to net loss of $2.2 million during the fourth quarter of last year.

Fiscal 2016 Results

Net sales for fiscal 2016 were $142.0 million, a 3.7% increase, compared to net sales of $137.0 million in the prior year. Sales for the Company’s Healthcare business increased $6.4 million, which includes net sales for IMES, acquired early this fiscal year. The increase was partially offset by a $1.2 million decrease in Canvys and $0.2 million decrease in PMT.

Gross margin increased to $44.8 million, or 31.6% of net sales during fiscal 2016, compared to $41.1 million, or 30.0% of net sales during fiscal 2015. Margin improved as a percent of sales primarily due to higher margins associated with the sale of diagnostic imaging replacement parts in the Healthcare business.

Operating expenses increased to $51.6 million for fiscal 2016, compared to $49.2 million for the fiscal 2015 and as a percentage of sales increased from 35.9% to 36.4%. The increase in SG&A reflected $5.0 million for IMES and additional investments in our Richardson Healthcare business and $0.7 million in PMT, partially offset by decreases of $1.9 million in IT services, $0.9 million in our other support functions, and $0.5 million in Canvys.

As a result, operating loss for fiscal 2016 was $6.6 million, compared to an operating loss of $8.1 million in fiscal 2015.

Other income for fiscal 2016, including foreign exchange, was $0.3 million, compared to $1.1 million in other income for fiscal 2015.

The income tax provision of $0.5 million during fiscal 2016 was due to foreign income tax expense and additional tax due in Germany that resulted from an audit.

Net loss for fiscal 2016 was $6.8 million, compared to net loss of $5.6 million during fiscal 2015.

CASH DIVIDEND

The Company also announced today that its Board of Directors declared a $0.06 quarterly dividend per share to holders of common stock and a $0.054 cash dividend per share to holders of Class B common stock.

Since the sale of RFPD, the Company has spent $65.6 million on share repurchases and currently has 10.7 million outstanding shares of common stock and 2.1 million outstanding shares of Class B common stock.
