iRobot Reports Strong Second-Quarter Financial Results

iRobot Corp. (IRBT), a leader in consumer robots, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended July 1, 2017.

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

"Our outstanding second-quarter results exceeded our expectations. Based on our Q2 results, and our outlook for the rest of 2017, fueled by positive momentum in the United States and EMEA, we are increasing our full-year 2017 financial expectations. We now expect 2017 revenue of $815 to $825 million, a 24 - 26% increase over 2016 consumer revenue, operating income of between $67 and $75 million, and EPS of between $1.80 and $2.00, none of which reflects any impact of our announced acquisition of our largest European distributor," said Colin Angle, chairman and chief executive officer of iRobot.

"Our increased expectations reflect our increased confidence that U.S. and EMEA momentum will continue and that full-year revenue in those regions will grow roughly 30% and high-teens percent respectively.

"With our increased expectations for full-year revenue, we plan to reinvest a portion of the incremental profitability to capitalize on the strong U.S. and EMEA momentum and ensure our continued product leadership in a rapidly growing, competitive marketplace. We will make incremental S&M investments to further promote our Braava family of robots, building on the momentum we have seen over the past couple of quarters. In addition, we will make additional investments in R&D to accelerate our product roadmap in anticipation of new product launches in 2018."

Financial Results

Note: 2016 first-half results include Defense & Security revenue of $3 million versus $0 in the first half of 2017. Divestiture of the Defense & Security business negatively impacted first-half 2016 operating income by $5.6 million and EPS by ($0.11).

Revenue for the second quarter of 2017 was $183.1 million, compared with $148.7 million for the second quarter of 2016. Revenue for the first half of 2017 was $351.6 million, compared with $279.5 million last year.

Operating income in the second quarter of 2017 was $4.1 million, compared with $5.9 million in the second quarter of 2016. For the first half of 2017, operating income was $25.7 million, compared with $11.4 million a year ago.

Quarterly earnings per share were $0.27 for the second quarter of 2017, compared with $0.17 in the second quarter of 2016. First-half earnings per share were $0.85, compared with $0.30 in the first half of 2016. Second-quarter and first-half 2017 EPS included discrete tax benefits of $0.15 and $0.21, respectively, due to the new accounting standard related to stock compensation expense that we adopted in Q1 2017.

Business Highlights

In the U.S., consumer revenue grew more than 45% year over year. On July 11, 2017, Amazon Prime Day and the biggest selling day in Amazon’s history, we sold more than twice the volume sold on Prime Day in 2016, which was twice what the volume sold in 2015. The Roomba 652 was ranked #1 in robotic vacuum cleaners, #1 in all floor care and #2 in all home & kitchen for 2017 Prime Day.

We introduced the Roomba 890 and Roomba 690 Wi-Fi connected vacuuming robots in the U.S., EMEA and China, extending the benefits of cloud-connected cleaning at lower price points. In addition, we launched the Roomba 900 series robots in China.

In a separate release, we announced our planned acquisition of Robopolis, our largest European distributor, which is expected to close at the beginning of Q4 2017.

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 (income) 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.
