Richardson Electronics Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2013 Results and Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend

CASH USED FOR SHARE REPURCHASES

“Total cash and investments as of fiscal year end were $146.0 million reflecting repurchases of approximately 1.3 million shares for approximately $15.0 million during the fiscal year. Of the 1.3 million shares, we repurchased 300,000 shares during the fourth quarter using $3.5 million of cash. During our fiscal years 2013 and 2012, we have repurchased a total of 3.2 million shares using $39.0 million of our cash. Our financial position provides flexibility as we carefully evaluate opportunities that will drive our future growth. While growth initiatives remain an integral part of our strategy, we will return value to our shareholders through a combination of cash dividends and share repurchases,” said Mr. Richardson.

As of today, $25.5 million remains under the Company’s existing share repurchase authorization from the company’s Board of Directors. Share repurchases may be made on the open market or in privately negotiated transactions from time to time, subject to market conditions and trading restrictions. This authorization has no expiration and may be cancelled at any time.

OUTLOOK

“We are cautiously optimistic that the global economy is stabilizing, and we are beginning to see increased demand for our products in the key markets we serve,” said Mr. Richardson. “We expect sales for EDG and Canvys for the first quarter of Fiscal 2014 to be in the range of $35 to $37 million. For fiscal 2014, we anticipate sales to be in the range of $155 to $160 million, with operating margin improving to the 5% level in the fourth quarter, and 3% for the fiscal year. We are not satisfied with this level of growth or return. We will continue to actively pursue acquisitions which leverage our existing global infrastructure and capitalize on our strength of serving a diverse end-user community,” concluded Mr. Richardson.

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. The dividend will be payable on August 23, 2013, to common stockholders of record on August 9, 2013. The Company currently has 12.1 million outstanding shares of common stock and 2.5 million outstanding shares of Class B common stock.
