HARMAN Q1 Fiscal Year 2013 GAAP EPS up 17% to $0.79

Harman International Industries, Incorporated, the leading global audio and infotainment group (NYSE: HAR), today announced results for the first quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Net sales for the first quarter were $998 million, a decrease of 5 percent compared to the same period last year. In local currency, net sales increased by 2 percent. The Company noted that the year-ago quarter benefitted from an estimated $75 million in additional infotainment sales as vehicle production surged to fulfill pent-up demand and one time competitive replacement following interruptions associated with the tsunami in Japan.

First quarter operating income was $79 million, compared to $74 million in the same period last year. Excluding restructuring charges, operating profit in the first quarter grew by 4 percent to $79 million, compared to $76 million in the same period last year. On a GAAP basis, earnings per diluted share were $0.79 for the quarter compared to $0.67 in the same period last year. Excluding restructuring charges, earnings per diluted share were $0.79 compared to $0.69 in the same period last year.

Dinesh C. Paliwal, HARMAN’s Chairman, President and CEO, commented, “We delivered another strong quarter with growth in local currency, even against last year’s abnormally strong first quarter. Our success continues to be underlined by our launch of several award winning new products and our competitive wins in car audio business from BMW, Ford and Volvo. Despite economic uncertainty and a weak European automotive sector, we have the largest backlog of awarded business in our history. We are proud that relentless execution and continued cost focus has allowed us to post our 12th consecutive quarter of top and bottom line growth. We are also pleased to see our solid track record reflected by our credit rating upgrade to investment grade. We are confident that our excellent liquidity profile will enable us to continue to utilize a variety of initiatives to deploy capital, invest in growth and generate strong returns for our shareholders.”

Net sales in the first quarter were $561 million, a decrease of 7 percent, or an increase of 2 percent in local currency. Prior year sales were exceptionally robust due to approximately $30 million in one-time competitive replacement business and $45 million in additional sales to fulfill pent-up demand following the tsunami in Japan. Continued revenue growth in BRIC countries was led China, up 27 percent. On a non-GAAP basis gross margin decreased 121 basis points to 22.9 percent of sales, primarily due to the impact of the higher margin competitive substitution business booked in the prior year.

On a non-GAAP basis SG&A and Other expense decreased 116 basis points to 14.9 percent of sales.

Infotainment Division Highlights

In the first quarter, HARMAN continued to be a driving force for innovation in embedded infotainment systems globally.

Net sales in the first quarter were $292 million, a decrease of 3 percent, or an increase of 3 percent in local currency. Sales growth in local currency was led by robust demand in emerging markets, led by 28 percent growth in China.

On a non-GAAP basis, SG&A and Other expense decreased 22 basis points to19.6 percent of sales.

Lifestyle Division Highlights

In the first quarter, Harman extended its global leadership in automotive audio with $800 million of new competitive awards from major automakers including BMW, Ford and Volvo. Customers in all major markets continue to acknowledge our technological leadership, strong brand portfolio, and best-in-class global footprint.

Expanding our existing audio business with BMW, Harman was selected for new cross-car line ultra-premium level audio systems worldwide, and Volvo Car Corporation signed a letter of intent with Harman to provide ultra-premium branded audio across multiple vehicle platforms. This is HARMAN’s first branded audio award with Volvo and marks the beginning of a new strategic relationship. In North America, Ford Motor Company chose Harman as its branded audio partner for select future programs. This newly established partnership is the result of a common focus on technical innovation and a shared vision to create an unmatched ownership experience.

In Italy, the Fiat Group has also awarded HARMAN a second luxury branded audio contract for its famed Maserati sports car line, in addition to the JBL sound system recently launched on the Fiat Abarth 500 special edition. These two awards, in the luxury flagship Maserati brand and the sporty Abarth brand, show the breadth of the HARMAN portfolio and our ability to satisfy customer needs in all product segments.

Across Asia, HARMAN secured eight new program awards with six different OEMs. In China, HARMAN was awarded the first ever branded audio business with JAC, a major domestic automaker, as well as additional programs with current customers BAIC and Geely. In Japan, our long-term relationships with Subaru (with the Harman/Kardon brand) and Lexus (with the Mark Levinson brand) continue, as HARMAN has been nominated for two replacement platforms with each company. In Korea, the Company continues to expand its portfolio of business with Kia by securing HARMAN’s first branded audio award in the small C-segment SUV platform.

Also during the first quarter, HARMAN launched 56 new consumer audio products at the IFA show in Berlin. At this show, the Harman/Kardon SB30 sound bar was awarded a prestigious EISA award. As a long-time Apple technology partner, HARMAN was selected to participate in the iPhone5 launch showcasing JBL docking stations featuring new 8-pin Lightning connectors. The Company also collaborated with Nokia to launch JBL PowerUp, the first co-branded wireless charging/docking speakers for the Nokia Windows 8 smartphones.

Net sales in the first quarter were $144 million, a decrease of 3 percent, or flat in local currency. On a non-GAAP basis gross margin increased 132 basis points to 38.5 percent of sales. The primary reason for the gross margin improvement was neodymium cost mitigation, new product introductions at price premium and productivity gains. On a non-GAAP basis SG&A and Other expense decreased 145 basis points to 24.7 percent of sales, primarily as a result of productivity improvements within R&D expense.

Professional Division Highlights

In the first quarter, HARMAN equipment was installed in over 13 major venues including the Oakland Arena, Williams Arena at the University of Minnesota, and Houston’s 16,800-seat Lakewood Church. Harman received major contracts for equipment sales to outfit two new FIFA Official Stadiums for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

During the quarter, the Company introduced new category-leading signal processing, mixing console, installation loudspeakers and software user interface products. HARMAN’s new integrated audio and visual information delivery solution called IDX is being adopted by a growing number of airport and transit facilities, and the IDX installation at Colombia’s Bogota International Airport was completed. The Company’s professional audio products were in use at major special events like the BMW Olympic Delegates Celebration in Beijing, Las Vegas’ iHeart Radio Festival, and the Global Poverty Project Benefit concert in New York.

The Company continued the rollout of its global marketing campaigns. The Company’s Corporate Technology Center is driving and enabling cutting-edge development in connectivity and networking, cloud computing, wireless technologies, digital signal processing, and energy-efficient solutions. The Company is building on its strong base of patents and patents pending, including 175 patents issued or filed worldwide during the first quarter. The increase in first quarter SG&A expense compared to the prior year is primarily due to stock compensation forfeitures recorded in the prior year and investments in global brand marketing.

@ThingsExpo Stories
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
