EFI Reports Q1 2010 Results

FOSTER CITY, Calif., April 29, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Electronics For Imaging, Inc. (Nasdaq:EFII), a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, today announced its results for the first quarter of 2010. For the quarter ended March 31, 2010, the Company reported revenues of $110.8 million, compared to first quarter 2009 revenue of $96.1 million.

GAAP net loss was $(11.4) million or $(0.25) per diluted share in the first quarter of 2010, compared to GAAP net income of $26.7 million or $0.52 per diluted share for the same period in 2009.

Non-GAAP net loss was $(0.1) million or $(0.00) per diluted share in the first quarter of 2010, compared to non-GAAP net loss of $(4.3) million or $(0.08) per diluted share for the same period in 2009.

"Our product portfolio performed very well in the first quarter, with Inkjet growing 37% over the prior year and Fiery showing strong results during a normally seasonally weak period," said Guy Gecht, CEO of EFI. "Going forward, we expect new innovative products to maintain our growth momentum, as we remain focused on investing in innovation, helping our customers to be more competitive and profitable."

Separately, the Company announced that it has reached an agreement to purchase Radius Solutions, a leading provider of Print MIS applications for the packaging industry, an area that EFI is strategically targeting with its line of Jetrion printers. While the terms of the acquisition were not disclosed, the cash transaction is expected to be slightly accretive to full year 2010 results. The transaction is subject to various closing conditions. 

The Company also announced that its Chief Financial Officer, John Ritchie, plans to leave the Company after the filing of the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2010 to pursue another opportunity.  The Company intends to appoint Gordon Heneweer, currently Vice President, Finance, as the Company's interim Chief Financial Officer.  The Company has initiated a search for a new CFO.

"I would like to extend my sincere thanks to John for his significant contribution to EFI over the past 10 years and wish him all the best in his new role," said Guy Gecht, CEO of EFI.

EFI will discuss the Company's financial results by conference call at 2:00 p.m. PDT today. Instructions for listening to the conference call over the Web are available on the investor relations portion of EFI's website at www.efi.com.

About our Non-GAAP Net Income and Adjustments

To supplement our consolidated financial results prepared under generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, we use non-GAAP measures of net income and earnings per diluted share that are GAAP net income and GAAP earnings per diluted share adjusted to exclude certain recurring and non-recurring costs, expenses and gains. 

We believe that the presentation of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding non-cash expenses, significant recurring and non-recurring items that we believe are important to understanding our financial and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations.  Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share are among the primary indicators used by management as a basis for planning and forecasting future periods and by management and our board of directors to determine whether our operating performance has met specified targets and thresholds. Management uses non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share when evaluating operating performance because it believes that the exclusion of the items described below, for which the amounts and/or timing may vary significantly depending upon the Company's activities and other factors, facilitates comparability of the Company's operating performance from period to period.  We have chosen to provide this information to investors so they can analyze our operating results in the same way that management does and use this information in their assessment of our business and the valuation of our Company.

We compute non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share by adjusting GAAP net income and GAAP earnings per diluted share to remove the impact of recurring amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, stock-based compensation expense, as well as restructuring related and non-recurring charges and gains and the tax effect of these adjustments.  Such non-recurring charges and gains include project abandonment costs, asset impairment charges, certain legal settlements, our sale of certain real estate assets, and acquisition-related transaction costs and legal expenses.  Examples of these excluded items are described below:

  • Amortization of acquisition-related intangibles. Intangible assets acquired to date are being amortized on a straight-line basis.
  • Stock-based compensation expense is recognized in accordance with FASB Accounting Standards Codification, Topic 718, Stock Compensation.
  • Non-recurring charges and gains, including:
  • Restructuring related charges.  We have incurred restructuring charges as we reduce the number and size of our facilities and the size of our workforce.
  • Asset impairment costs consist of equipment and non-cancellable purchase orders incurred relating to a planned product that was cancelled and a facility closure.
  • Gain on sale of building and land. On January 29, 2009, we sold a portion of the Foster City, California campus for a final amount of $137.3 million to Gilead Sciences, Inc., resulting in a gain on sale of approximately $79.4 million as of March 31, 2009.
  • Acquisition-related transaction costs and legal expenses. In line with our previously disclosed acquisition strategy, we have identified targets for potential acquisition and have incurred expenses of $0.6 million related thereto in the first quarter of 2010. 
  • Tax effect of these adjustments. After removing the non-GAAP items, we apply the principles of ASC 740, Income Taxes, to estimate the non-GAAP income tax provision in each jurisdiction in which we operate.  

These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with or an alternative for GAAP and may be materially different from other non-GAAP measures, including similarly titled non-GAAP measures, used by other companies.  The presentation of this additional information should not be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, net income or earnings per diluted share prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect certain items that may have a material impact upon our reported financial results.  We expect to continue to incur expenses of a nature similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from our non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.

For more information on the non-GAAP adjustments, please see the table captioned "Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income to Non-GAAP Net Income" included in this press release.
