  • Net sales of $838 million rose 16 percent sequentially and 7 percent year over year
  • Strong North American wireless spending and global Enterprise recovery drove sales growth
  • Operating income of $81 million
  • Adjusted operating income of $101 million, excluding special items

CommScope Inc., a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, reported sales of $838.1 million and net income of $44.2 million, or $0.43 of earnings per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2010.

The reported net income includes after-tax charges of $15.2 million for the amortization of purchased intangibles and $2.3 million for restructuring offset by a $5.3 million after-tax gain related to an arbitration award. Excluding these special items, adjusted second quarter 2010 net income was $56.4 million, or $0.55 of earnings per diluted share.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2009, CommScope reported sales of $783.7 million and net income of $15.4 million, or $0.18 per diluted share. The reported net income included after-tax charges of $15.3 million for the amortization of purchased intangibles, $14.7 million for losses on debt conversions and prepayments, $10.3 million in litigation charges and $5.6 million in restructuring costs. Excluding these special items, adjusted second quarter 2009 earnings were $61.3 million, or $0.67 per diluted share. A reconciliation of reported GAAP results to adjusted results is attached.

“Strong North American wireless spending and an ongoing recovery in the global Enterprise market drove sales growth and higher sequential operating margins,” said CommScope Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Frank Drendel. “However, reduced wireless spending in India and China restrained our overall growth in the quarter.

“Despite the ongoing economic uncertainty, we remain optimistic about opportunities for long-term profitable growth. We intend to build upon our leading global position supporting next-generation wireless technologies, like LTE, while we strengthen our leadership in the Enterprise market. The need for bandwidth at home, at the office and for the mobile consumer has grown at astounding rates. New smart phones and connected tablets continue to generate demand for a faster and highly reliable mobile Internet. As a result, many carriers around the world are in the early stages of deploying next-generation networks. We are focused on executing our strategy of helping these customers connect and communicate seamlessly through the waves of technology.”

Antenna, Cable and Cabinet Group (ACCG) sales grew significantly on a sequential basis, due primarily to U.S. operators’ increased investments in next generation wireless and wireline communication infrastructure. This sequential increase was somewhat offset by a decline in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region mainly driven by lower sales in India and China. Ongoing regulatory issues in India continued to have a negative effect primarily on microwave and base station antenna sales. Sales declined modestly year over year as lower sales in the APAC and Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) regions more than offset growth in the Americas.

Enterprise segment sales increased sequentially and year over year as corporations and large entities continued to invest in strategic information technology. Sales increased across all regions and product groups. The company continues to see increased adoption of higher value, end-to-end solutions as new data centers are deployed and as data-intensive applications such as video, collaborative software and IP-based security consume increasing amounts of bandwidth.

Broadband segment sales increased year over year primarily due to higher volume in Central and Latin America (CALA). The improved sequential sales performance was driven by solid sales growth in CALA as well as seasonally stronger sales in North America. These sales increases were somewhat offset by reductions in pricing on certain cable products.

Wireless Network Solutions (WNS) segment sales increased primarily as a result of volume gains in the North America region as well as strong sales into South Africa for the completion of wireless infrastructure for stadiums used for the soccer World Cup. These volume gains were somewhat offset by declines in the APAC region. The company expects long-term growth opportunities for the project-oriented WNS segment and expects to continue to benefit from the deployment of advanced wireless capacity and coverage solutions for buildings, stadiums, trains and other challenging applications.

In the second quarter of 2010, U.S. sales increased 11.9 percent year over year and 22.4 percent sequentially to $469.1 million, or 56 percent of total company sales.

Orders booked in the second quarter of 2010 were $817.5 million.

Operating Overview

Operating income in the second quarter of 2010 was $81.4 million compared to $74.1 million in the year-ago period. Adjusted operating income, which excludes the amortization of purchased intangibles and other special items, declined 19.2 percent from the year-ago period to $100.8 million. The decline in adjusted operating income is primarily attributable to a decline in Broadband operating income and a return to normal business practices for salary and incentive compensation. However, adjusted operating income increased 52.5 percent sequentially, primarily due to improving wireless performance. (A reconciliation of GAAP to adjusted operating income follows.)

CommScope management believes that presenting operating income information excluding the special items noted above provides meaningful information to investors in understanding operating results and may enhance investors' ability to analyze financial and business trends, when considered together with the GAAP financial measures. In addition, CommScope management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures allow investors to compare period to period more easily by excluding items that could have a disproportionately negative or positive impact on results in any particular period.

Second Quarter 2010 Financial Highlights

  • Gross margin for the second quarter of 2010 was 30.1 percent and includes a benefit of $8.6 million for an arbitration award. Excluding this special item, adjusted gross margin was 29.1 percent. Gross margin for the year-ago period was 29.2 percent and includes an $18.1 million charge for litigation. Excluding this special item, adjusted gross margin was 31.5 percent in the year-ago quarter. Adjusted gross margin declined year over year due primarily to higher material costs, a return to normal business practices for salary and incentive compensation and lower prices for certain cable products.
  • SG&A expense for the second quarter of 2010 was $116.5 million, up $17.5 million or 17.7 percent, year over year, primarily due to the reinstatement of certain incentive based employee cash bonus programs in 2010 that had been suspended for 2009 and higher selling costs due to higher net sales.
  • Interest expense for the quarter was $22.5 million compared to $43.2 million in the year-ago quarter. Included in the year-ago quarter’s interest expense were non-cash charges of $11.3 million related to an interest make whole payment and $5.4 million related to the write off of deferred financing fees in connection with accelerated debt payments. Excluding those items, interest expense in the year-ago quarter was $26.5 million. Interest expense declined year over year due to lower debt levels.
  • The company’s effective income tax rate for the quarter was 25.0 percent, while the overall tax rate on adjusted pretax income was 28.1 percent. These rates include a benefit of $2.6 million for adjustments to valuation allowances related to various tax matters and a $2.5 million benefit related to adjustments to the estimated cost of repatriation.
  • The company incurred $3.6 million in restructuring costs as part of its previously announced 2010 initiatives to realign and lower its cost structure and improve capacity utilization. The company expects to substantially complete these initiatives in late 2011.
  • Total depreciation and amortization expense in the quarter was $46.8 million, which included $24.4 million of amortization of purchased intangibles.
  • Net operating cash flow in the quarter was $28.2 million. Capital spending in the quarter was $9.3 million.
  • Total debt outstanding at June 30, 2010 was $1.35 billion and reflected a voluntary debt prepayment of $50 million in the quarter. The company ended the quarter with $577.3 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments.

Other Highlights

  • Two of Japan’s wireless operators have made the switch to HELIAX® 2.0 smoothwall cables from CommScope’s Andrew Solutions. HELIAX 2.0 smoothwall cables deliver lower attenuation, higher crush strength and reduced weight when compared to competitors’ copper cables. The company is also supplying cable accessories, base station antennas and RF splitters to one of the operators.
  • CommScope’s Andrew Solutions added powerful new capabilities in Version 10 of its versatile GeoLENs mobile location center (MLC). The GeoLENs MLC 10 is a complete location system that supports both gateway and serving functions for emergency, value-added and security location-based services. The company believes GeoLENs supports the widest range of positioning capabilities available from a single vendor, individually or in combination and on a common platform, including handset-based, network-based, and hybrid locating technologies for 2G and 3G access – specifically, cell identity (CID), A-GPS, enhanced-CID, uplink time difference of arrival on the traffic channel, multiple range estimation location and angle of arrival (AOA).
  • The 100th customer location was added to CommScope Advantage Inventory Management® (AIM) 2.0, a CommScope-managed, automated inventory management program offered to broadband cable customers. The AIM 2.0 program is a cutting edge collaborative inventory management program that helps customers run efficient distribution centers and other warehouse facilities. AIM 2.0 enables cable operators to benefit from CommScope’s expertise in inventory management, helping them increase inventory turns, improve operational efficiency and ensure adequate stock.

Outlook

CommScope management provided the following guidance:

Third Quarter 2010:

  • Revenue of $815 million to $865 million
  • Adjusted operating income of $90 million to $110 million, excluding amortization of purchased intangibles, restructuring and other special items
  • Tax rate of 32 percent to 36 percent on adjusted pretax income

The company’s third quarter guidance is based upon expectations of increased spending in India as security issues are resolved and as operators increase wireless spending for 3G applications, adequate component availability, ongoing Enterprise strength and a stable business environment.

“We delivered a solid quarter despite challenging conditions in India and broader economic concerns,” said Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Jearld Leonhardt. “Due mainly to these issues, which have contributed to a slower-than-expected recovery in wireless spending in Europe and Asia-Pacific, we believe that it will be difficult to achieve year-over-year growth in adjusted operating income for calendar year 2010.

“However, looking ahead to the second half of the year, we continue to expect higher sales and adjusted operating income, excluding special items, than the first half of the year.”

(1) The tax rates applied to special items reflect the tax expense or benefit expected to be realized based on the tax jurisdiction of the entity generating the special item. There are certain special items for which we expect to receive little or no tax benefit.

(2) Includes amortization included in cost of sales of $3.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009 and $7.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009.

CommScope management believes that presenting operating income, net income (loss) and diluted EPS information excluding the special items noted above provides meaningful information to investors in understanding operating results and may enhance investors' ability to analyze financial and business trends, when considered together with the GAAP financial measures. In addition, CommScope management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures allow investors to compare period to period more easily by excluding items that could have a disproportionately negative or positive impact on results in any particular period.
