iRobot Reports First-Quarter Financial Results

iRobot Corp. (IRBT), a leader in consumer home robotics, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended April 1, 2017.

https://mma.prnewswire.com/media/12382/irobot_corp_logo3263_21100jpg.jpg

"Our first quarter results were outstanding. Building off the strong momentum we experienced during the year-end holidays, iRobot delivered first quarter 2017 consumer revenue growth of 32% due to growth across all regions," said Colin Angle, chairman and chief executive officer of iRobot.

"We also achieved an important strategic initiative with the completion of the purchase of our Japanese distributor shortly after the close of the first quarter. Based on our Q1 results and our outlook for the rest of 2017, we are increasing our full-year financial expectations. We now expect 2017 revenue of $780 to $790 million, EPS of between $1.45 and $1.70 and operating income of $60 to $70 million.

"These expectations reflect our confidence that the momentum we built during the 2016 holiday season, particularly in the United States and EMEA, will continue throughout 2017. In addition, greater control over marketing in China and Japan will enable us to accelerate growth in those regions.

"We are off to a great start in 2017 and tracking well to our near and longer term plans."

Financial Results

Revenue for the first quarter of 2017 was $168.5 million, compared with $130.8 million for the first quarter of 2016. Q1 2016 included $3.0 million of revenue from the Defense & Security business divested at the beginning of Q2 2016.

Net income for the first quarter of 2017 was $16.4 million, compared with net income of $3.9 million for the first quarter of 2016.

Quarterly earnings per share were $0.58, compared with earnings per share of $0.13 in the first quarter of 2016. The divestiture of the Defense & Security business negatively impacted Q1 2016 earnings per share by ($0.12). In addition, in Q1 2017, we adopted the new accounting standard related to stock compensation expense. As a result, we recorded a $0.06 discrete tax benefit.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2017 was $30.2 million, compared with $14.1 million in the first quarter of 2016.

Business Highlights

We delivered year-over-year Q1 quarterly revenue growth in the United States of 34% over record growth in Q1 last year.

International revenue grew 29% in the first quarter, driven by growth in all overseas regions. China was up 23%; Japan was up 21%; and EMEA was up 36% in Q1 2017 from a year ago.

Shortly after the end of the quarter, we closed the previously announced acquisition of our Japanese distributor, enabling us to extend our leadership position and accelerate the growth of our business in Japan.

We recently filed a legal action against several well-known appliance brands and Chinese manufacturers in the United States District Court and with the International Trade Commission after determining that each had infringed on numerous iRobot patents.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In evaluating its business, iRobot considers and uses Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of its operating performance. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation expense, net merger, acquisition and divestiture expense, net intellectual property litigation expense, and restructuring expense. The Company also presents Adjusted EBITDA because it believes it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties as a measure of financial performance.
The term Adjusted EBITDA is not defined under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or U.S. GAAP, and is not a measure of operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and when assessing the Company’s operating performance, investors should not consider Adjusted EBITDA in isolation, or as a substitute for net income (loss) or other consolidated income statement data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
Among other things, Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the Company’s actual cash expenditures.
Other companies may calculate similar measures differently than iRobot, limiting their usefulness as comparative tools.
iRobot compensates for these limitations by relying primarily on its GAAP results and using Adjusted EBITDA only supplementally.
