ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Belden Inc. (NYSE: BDC), a global leader in high quality, end-to-end signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, today reported fiscal second quarter 2016 results for the period ended July 3, 2016.

Second Quarter 2016

On a GAAP basis, revenues for the quarter totaled $601.6 million, increasing $15.8 million, or 2.7%, compared to $585.8 million in the second quarter 2015. Gross profit margin in the second quarter was 41.3%, increasing 130 basis points from 40.0% in the year-ago period. Net income was $41.8 million, increasing from $21.7 million in the prior-year period. Net income as a percentage of revenues was 7.0% in the second quarter, increasing 330 basis points from 3.7% in the prior-year period. EPS totaled $0.98, compared to $0.50 in the second quarter 2015. The Company recognized an income tax benefit for the quarter, primarily as a result of tax planning initiatives.

Adjusted revenues for the quarter totaled $603.4 million, increasing $4.9 million, or 0.8%, compared to $598.5 million in the second quarter 2015. Adjusted gross profit margin in the second quarter was 41.8%, increasing 10 basis points from the year-ago period. Adjusted EBITDA margin in the second quarter was 17.9%, increasing 120 basis points from 16.7% in the year-ago period. Adjusted EPS increased to $1.54 from $1.21 in the second quarter 2015. Adjusted EPS includes the benefit of tax planning initiatives. Adjusted results are non-GAAP measures, and a non-GAAP reconciliation table is provided as an appendix to this release.

John Stroup, President and CEO of Belden Inc., said, “We are extremely pleased to generate revenues and earnings for the second quarter that exceeded our expectations, and we are proud to report organic revenue growth for the second quarter and first half of 2016. In addition to continued success in our Enterprise platform, the Broadcast platform generated broad-based, double-digit revenue growth in the quarter. Furthermore, margin expansion continues to be exceptional across the organization, as we benefit from our robust lean enterprise system.”

Outlook

“Given our strong first half, we are once again increasing our revenue and earnings outlook for the year. In addition to continued strength in the Broadcast, Enterprise and Network Security platforms, we expect our combined Industrial businesses to return to growth in the second half of the year,” said Mr. Stroup.

On a GAAP basis, the Company expects third quarter 2016 revenues to be $593$613 million and EPS to be $0.66$0.76. For the full year ending December 31, 2016, the Company now expects revenues to be $2.348$2.378 billion compared to the previously guided range of $2.313$2.363 billion.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES
(Unaudited)
       

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, we provide non-GAAP operating results adjusted for certain items, including: asset impairments; accelerated depreciation expense due to plant consolidation activities; purchase accounting effects related to acquisitions, such as the adjustment of acquired inventory and deferred revenue to fair value and transaction costs; severance, restructuring, and acquisition integration costs; gains (losses) recognized on the disposal of businesses and tangible assets; amortization of intangible assets; gains (losses) on debt extinguishment; discontinued operations; and other costs. We adjust for the items listed above in all periods presented, unless the impact is clearly immaterial to our financial statements. When we calculate the tax effect of the adjustments, we include all current and deferred income tax expense commensurate with the adjusted measure of pre-tax profitability.

 

We utilize the adjusted results to review our ongoing operations without the effect of these adjustments and for comparison to budgeted operating results. We believe the adjusted results are useful to investors because they help them compare our results to previous periods and provide important insights into underlying trends in the business and how management oversees our business operations on a day-to-day basis. As an example, we adjust for the purchase accounting effect of recording deferred revenue at fair value in order to reflect the revenues that would have otherwise been recorded by acquired businesses had they remained as independent entities. We believe this presentation is useful in evaluating the underlying performance of acquired companies. Similarly, we adjust for other acquisition-related expenses, such as amortization of intangibles and other impacts of fair value adjustments because they generally are not related to the acquired business' core business performance. As an additional example, we exclude the costs of restructuring programs, which can occur from time to time for our current businesses and/or recently acquired businesses. We exclude the costs in calculating adjusted results to allow us and investors to evaluate the performance of the business based upon its expected ongoing operating structure. We believe the adjusted measures, accompanied by the disclosure of the costs of these programs, provides valuable insight.

 

Adjusted results should be considered only in conjunction with results reported according to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

We define free cash flow, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, as net cash from operating activities adjusted for capital expenditures net of the proceeds from the disposal of tangible assets. We believe free cash flow provides useful information to investors regarding our ability to generate cash from business operations that is available for acquisitions and other investments, service of debt principal, dividends and share repurchases. We use free cash flow, as defined, as one financial measure to monitor and evaluate performance and liquidity. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered only in conjunction with financial measures reported according to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. Our definition of free cash flow may differ from definitions used by other companies.

Forward-Looking Statements

This release contains, and statements made by us concerning the release may contain, forward-looking statements, including our expectations for the third quarter, second half and full-year 2016. Forward-looking statements also include statements regarding future financial performance (including revenues, expenses, earnings, margins, cash flows, dividends, capital expenditures and financial condition), plans and objectives, and related assumptions.

Forward-looking statements reflect management’s current beliefs and expectations and are not guarantees of future performance. Actual results may differ materially from those suggested by any forward-looking statements for a number of reasons, including, without limitation: the impact of a challenging global economy or a downturn in served markets; the cost and availability of raw materials including copper, plastic compounds, electronic components, and other materials; the competitiveness of the global broadcast, enterprise, and industrial markets; disruption of, or changes in, the Company’s key distribution channels; volatility in credit and foreign exchange markets; the inability to execute and realize the expected benefits from strategic initiatives (including revenue growth, cost control, and productivity improvement programs); the inability to successfully complete and integrate acquisitions in furtherance of the Company’s strategic plan; the inability of the Company to develop and introduce new products and competitive responses to our products; assertions that the Company violates the intellectual property of others and the ownership of intellectual property by competitors and others that prevents the use of that intellectual property by the Company; risks related to the use of open source software; the inability to retain senior management and key employees; disruptions in the Company’s information systems including due to cyber-attacks; variability in the Company’s quarterly and annual effective tax rates; perceived or actual product failures; political and economic uncertainties in the countries where the Company conducts business, including emerging markets; the impairment of goodwill and other intangible assets and the resulting impact on financial performance; the impact of regulatory requirements and other legal compliance issues; disruptions and increased costs attendant to collective bargaining groups and other labor matters; and other factors.
