Second Quarter 2012 Results

Revenues in the second quarter of 2012 totaled $28.1 million, compared with $28.5 million in the second quarter of 2011 and a sequential increase of 2.2% compared with $27.5 million in the previous quarter.  The strengthening of the US Dollar versus the Euro during the 12 months period ended June 2012 had a negative impact of approximately $1 million to the Company's revenue in the quarter compared to the second quarter of 2011.

Gross profit in the second quarter of 2012 totaled $6.7 million, compared with $6.6 million in the second quarter of 2011 and $6.1 million in the previous quarter. Gross margin in the second quarter of 2012 was 23.8%, compared with 23.0% in the second quarter of 2011 and 22.3% in the previous quarter.  

Operating income for the second quarter of 2012 totaled $2.5 million, compared with $2.5 million in the second quarter of 2011 and $2.0 million in the previous quarter. Operating margin in the second quarter of 2012 was 8.8%, compared with 8.7% in the second quarter of 2011 and 7.1% in the previous quarter.

Net income on a GAAP basis for the second quarter of 2012 was $1.1 million, compared with $2.1 million in the second quarter of 2011 and $2.3 million in the previous quarter.  Net income per share on a fully diluted basis under GAAP for the second quarter of 2012 was $0.07, compared with $0.12 in the second quarter of 2011 and $0.13 in the previous quarter. Net income was negatively affected by the strengthening of the US Dollar versus the Euro and Israeli shekel which increased financial expenses and income tax during the second quarter.

Adjusted net income totaled $1.5 million for the second quarter of 2012, compared with $2.3 million in the second quarter of 2011 and $1.9 million in the previous quarter.  Adjusted net income per share on a fully diluted basis totaled $0.08 in the second quarter of 2012, compared with $0.13 in the second quarter of 2011 and $0.11 in the previous quarter. Adjusted net income was negatively affected by the strengthening of the US Dollar versus the Euro and Israeli shekel which increased financial expenses and income tax during the second quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2012 totaled $4.8 million, compared with $4.5 million in the second quarter of 2011 and $4.2 million in the previous quarter.

Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities as of June 30, 2012 totaled $34.2 million compared with $34.4 million as of March 31, 2012. The change in cash position during the quarter was mainly attributable to a positive operating cash flow of $4.6 million, capital expenditure of $0.9 million and a dividend payment to shareholders of $4.0 million.

Backlog of signed agreements, as of June 30, 2012, totaled $193 million, compared with a backlog of $194 million at the end of the previous quarter.  Exchange rates changes in the second quarter had a negative impact of $3 million on the backlog level.

Guidance

Guidance for the third quarter of 2012 calls for sequential revenue growth, with revenues coming in the range of $28.2 - $29.2 million. For the full year of 2012, revenues are expected to be in the range of $112 - $115 million. Management expects similar gross margin in the third quarter.

Dividend Distribution

On August 8, 2012, the Board of Directors declared a cash dividend in the amount of $0.10 per ordinary share, and in the aggregate amount of approximately $1.7 million. The dividend will be payable on September 5, 2012 to all of the Company's shareholders of record at the end of the trading day on the NASDAQ on August 20, 2012.

In accordance with Israeli tax law, the Company will withhold 25% of the dividend amount payable to each shareholder at source, subject to applicable exemptions. The Company's dividend policy is described in detail in its most recent Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Management Comment

Shlomo Shamir, Chairman of RRsat commented, "The second quarter showed improvement in many parameters, particularly in the margins which reached their highest levels in two years. We met our top line targets in the quarter and we grew our revenues sequentially, despite significant negative currency effects. Most significantly our capital expenditures have substantially declined compared with last year. This has had a very positive impact and has allowed us to generate almost $10 million in free cash flow in the past 9 months since our major infrastructure investments ended. Given our strong backlog, we maintain good visibility into the coming quarters even against the background of a weaker global economy. Finally, after the close of the second quarter, we welcomed Avi Cohen to RRsat as the new CEO, replacing David Rivel. I very much look forward to Avi's contributions in the coming quarters and I would like to thank David for leading RRsat's growth and development over the many years."  

Avi Cohen, CEO of RRsat commented, "I am privileged to join RRsat and impressed by the people, technical capabilities and state-of-the-art infrastructure. While there are always business challenges, I believe RRsat is in a strong position to leverage its infrastructure to capture and develop new business. I look forward to working with this talented team, at a company with such potential."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the GAAP results included in this press release, RRsat has also included non-GAAP measurements of results. RRsat uses three financial measures, adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share and adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP financial measures. RRsat believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are principal indicators of the operating and financial performance of its business. We have provided these non-GAAP measurements to help investors better understand our core operating performance and enhance comparisons of core operating performance from period to period.

Adjusted net income is calculated based on the net income in our financial statements excluding non-cash equity-based compensation charges recorded in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718, non-cash expense resulting from amortization of acquired intangible assets, non-cash income (loss) reflecting changes in the fair value of embedded currency conversion derivatives resulting from the application of FASB ASC Topic 815 and the resulting income tax (increase) decrease of the above items.  

Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by adding to operating income, non-cash equity-based compensation charge, depreciation and amortization.

The company has excluded intangible assets amortization expense from its non-GAAP net income and EBITDA measurements, primarily because it represents a significant non-cash expense and because the company evaluates its performance excluding intangible assets amortization expense. Amortization of intangible assets is consistent in amount and frequency but is significantly affected by the timing and size of the company's acquisitions. Investors should note that the use of intangible assets contributed to the Company's revenues earned during the periods presented and will contribute to the Company's future period revenues as well. Intangible assets amortization expense will recur in future periods.

Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to assess its operational performance, for financial and operational decision-making, and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons on a consistent basis. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's performance by excluding certain non-cash expenses that are not directly attributable to its core operating results.  

The non-GAAP measurements are intended only as a supplement to the comparable GAAP measurements and the company compensates for the limitations inherent in the use of non-GAAP measurements by using GAAP measures in conjunction with the non-GAAP measurements. As a result, investors should consider these non-GAAP measurements in addition to, and not in substitution for, or as superior to, measurements of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The Company expects to continue reporting non-GAAP financial measures, adjusting for the items described above, and the Company expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the non-cash, non-GAAP adjustments described above. Accordingly, the exclusion of these and other similar items in the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. Moreover, because not all companies use identical measures and calculations, the presentation of adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share and adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. These limitations are compensated for by using adjusted net income and adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with traditional GAAP financial measures.  

Reconciliations of the non-GAAP measures (adjusted net income and adjusted EBITDA) to the most comparable GAAP measures (net income and operating income respectively), are provided in the schedules attached to this release.
