The company posted revenue of $774 million for the quarter with GAAP and pro forma net income of $138 million.

The company provided earnings guidance for the year 2015. The company expects full-year earnings to be $2.65 per share, with revenue expected to be $2.9 billion.

Garmin Ltd. Provides Earnings Guidance for the Second Quarter of 2015; Revises Earnings Guidance for the Full Year of 2015

Garmin Ltd. provided earnings guidance for the second quarter of 2015 and revised earnings guidance for the full year of 2015. The company expects to report second quarter 2015 revenue in the range of $770 million - $775 million with a gross margin of approximately 54%. The year-over-year decline was driven primarily by currency movements negatively impacting sales by $55 million - $60 million year-over-year on a constant currency basis across all consumer segments and a more promotional pricing environment in the fitness segment. Operating margin is expected to be approximately 21.5% as the company continue to invest in research & development and advertising. Given an increased tax rate in the quarter, the resulting second quarter diluted earnings per share (EPS) is expected to be in the range of $0.70 to $0.72. For the full year, the company continues to expect revenue of approximately $2.9 billion, unchanged from prior guidance. Total company gross margin is expected to be in the range of 54% - 55% driven primarily by currency movements and promotional pricing. Previously, gross margin was expected to be approximately 56%. With expected increased investments in advertising and research & development, the company expects an operating margin in the range of 20% - 21% compared to prior guidance of 23%. Given an effective tax rate of 18% to 19%, the company now expects pro forma diluted EPS of approximately $2.65 for full year 2015, compared to prior guidance of $3.10. The pro forma EPS excludes the impact of the first quarter loss associated with translation of assets and liabilities held in non-functional currencies by global subsidiaries.
