Xyratex Ltd Announces Results for the Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2013 PR Newswire HAVANT, UK, Jan. 13, 2014 HAVANT, UK, Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Xyratex Ltd (Nasdaq: XRTX), a leading provider of data storage technology, today announced results for the fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal year ended November 30, 2013. Revenues for the fourth quarter were $185.3 million, a decrease of 30.2% compared to revenues of $265.4 million for the same period in the prior year. Revenues for fiscal year 2013 were $814 million, a decrease of 29.7% compared to revenues of $1,159 million for fiscal year 2012. These year over year declines were principally related to the continued reduction in revenue from NetApp with the current program coming to an end in our current quarter as previously announced. Gross profit margin in the fourth quarter was 22.2%, compared to 14.5% in the same period in the prior year and 20.9% in the prior quarter. Gross profit margin for fiscal year 2013 was 21% compared to 16.9% in the previous year. The increases from last year reflect a favorable variation in customer and product mix in our Enterprise Data Storage Solutions product segment as well as improved margins for newer products in our Capital Equipment segment. For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, GAAP net loss was $21.4 million, or $0.78 per share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $7.9 million, or $0.29 per share, in the same period in the prior year. Non-GAAP net loss was $0.8 million, or $0.03 per share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $6.4 million, or $0.24 per share, in the same quarter a year ago^(1). GAAP net loss for fiscal year 2013 was $21.2 million, or $0.77 per share, compared to GAAP net income of $17.7 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, for fiscal year 2012. Non-GAAP net income for fiscal year 2013 decreased to $4.2 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to $24.6 million, or $0.87 per diluted share, for fiscal year 2012. Included in both the 2013 fiscal fourth quarter and full year GAAP results, but excluded from the non-GAAP results, is a non-cash valuation allowance against the deferred tax asset of $19.2 million. This valuation allowance relates primarily to UK tax losses which have been recorded as a result of certain tax concessions in the UK and the tax structure of the overall Xyratex Ltd group. This valuation allowance does not indicate in itself that the overall Xyratex Ltd group will not be profitable in future fiscal periods. Today, the company also announced that its Board of Directors has approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.075 per share, unchanged from the prior quarter. The dividend will be payable on February 17, 2014 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on February 4, 2014. This dividend represents a quarterly payout of approximately $2.1 million in aggregate, or $8.4 million on an annualized basis. Business Outlook and Conference Call Given the Company's announcement on December 23, 2013 that it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Seagate Technology plc, the Company is not providing an outlook for its fiscal 2014 first quarter and will not be hosting a conference call to discuss its results. (1) Non-GAAP net income (loss) and diluted earnings (loss) per share exclude (a) amortization of intangible assets, (b) equity compensation expense, (c) the tax effects related to (a) and (b), (d) the tax expense resulting from recording a valuation allowance against the UK deferred tax asset, (e) the tax expense resulting from a reduction in the deferred tax asset caused by a fall in UK tax rates prior to the recording of a valuation allowance and (f) the recognition of a Malaysia deferred tax asset in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. A reconciliation of non-GAAP net income (loss) and diluted earnings (loss) per share to GAAP net income and GAAP diluted earnings (loss) per share is included in a table immediately following the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows. The intention in providing these non-GAAP measures is to provide supplemental information regarding the company's operational performance while recognizing that they have material limitations and that they should only be referred to with reference to, and not considered to be a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding GAAP measure. The financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the comparable GAAP measures should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by us may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. The company believes that the provision of these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors and investment analysts because it enables comparison to the company's historical operating results, those of competitors and other industry participants and also provides transparency to the measures used by management in operational and financial decision making. In relation to the specific items excluded: (a) intangible assets represent costs incurred by the acquired business prior to acquisition, are not cash costs and will not be replaced when the assets are fully amortized and therefore the exclusion of these costs provides management and investors with better visibility of the costs required to generate revenue over time; (b) equity compensation expense is non-cash in nature and is outside the control of management during the period in which the expense is incurred; (c) the exclusion of the related tax effects of excluding items (a) and (b) is necessary to show the effect on net income (loss) of the change in tax expense that would have been recorded if these items had not been incurred; (d) and (e) the recording of a valuation allowance against the UK deferred tax asset and the impact of the reduction in UK tax rates are non-cash and not comparable across periods or with other companies; and (f) the recognition of the Malaysia deferred tax asset relates to the non-renewal of certain tax incentive arrangements in 2012, is non-recurring and will reverse if the incentive arrangements are renewed Safe Harbor Statement This press release contains forward-looking statements.
