The tax rate was 17 percent for fiscal 2012 as compared to a tax rate of 11 percent for fiscal 2011.

Fiscal 2012 non-GAAP operating income of $397.3 million was up 36 percent as compared to fiscal 2011. Non-GAAP operating margin was 19.5 percent of revenue as compared to 17.8 percent of revenue in fiscal 2011.  Improvements in non-GAAP operating margin were due to leverage on higher revenue, product mix and acquisitions.

  • Debt-issuance write-off of $82 thousand versus $377 thousand debt-issuance write-off in fiscal 2011.

"Our quarterly results were consistent with our expectations in an environment that remains volatile.  In the U.S. we saw a clear improvement in commercial and residential construction markets which was offset by a general tendency late in the year to defer investment decisions pending better clarity on the outcome of government budget actions," said Steven W. Berglund, Trimble's president and chief executive officer.  "Conditions in Europe remained difficult while most other regions continued to be comparatively healthy.  Our outlook for 2013 remains that of healthy growth although it is conditioned upon the state of volatility in the U.S. and Europe."

Results by Segment

Segment operating income is revenue less cost of sales and operating expenses, excluding general corporate expenses, restructuring expenses, amortization of intangibles, amortization of acquisition-related inventory step-up charges and acquisition costs.  Non-GAAP segment operating income also excludes the impact of stock-based compensation expense.

Engineering and Construction (E&C)

Fourth quarter 2012 E&C revenue was $269.1 million, up 13 percent as compared to the fourth quarter of 2011.  Growth in E&C revenue came primarily from sales of heavy and highway and building construction solutions, as well as acquisitions.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To help our investors understand our past financial performance and our future results, as well as our performance relative to competitors, we supplement the financial results that we provide in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, with non-GAAP financial measures.  These non-GAAP measures can be used to evaluate our historical and prospective financial performance, as well as our performance relative to competitors. Our management regularly uses our supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate our business, and to make operating decisions. These non-GAAP measures are among the primary factors management uses in planning for and forecasting future periods. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of our operations that, when viewed with our GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business. Further, we believe some of our investors track our "core operating performance" as a means of evaluating our performance in the ordinary, ongoing, and customary course of our operations.  Core operating performance excludes items that are non-cash, not expected to recur or not reflective of ongoing financial results. Management also believes that looking at our core operating performance provides a supplemental way to provide consistency in period to period comparisons. 

The specific non-GAAP measures which we use along with a reconciliation to the nearest comparable GAAP measures and the explanation for why these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors regarding our financial condition and results of operations and why management chose to exclude selected items can be found at the end of this release. The method we use to produce non-GAAP results is not computed according to GAAP and may differ from the methods used by other companies. Our non-GAAP results are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP results, which is attached to this earnings release.  Additional financial information about our use of non-GAAP results can be found on the investor relations page of our Web site at http://investor.trimble.com.

Forward Looking Guidance

For the first quarter of 2013 Trimble expects revenue between $575 million and $580 million with GAAP earnings per share of $0.41 to $0.43 and non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.74 to $0.76. Non-GAAP guidance excludes the amortization of intangibles of $38.2 million related to previous acquisitions; anticipated acquisition costs of $2.0 million and the anticipated impact of stock-based compensation expense of $9.2 million. Both GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per share assume a 14 to 16 percent tax rate and 130 million shares outstanding.

FOOTNOTES TO GAAP TO NON-GAAP RECONCILIATION


(Unaudited)


Our non-GAAP measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures. The non-GAAP financial measures included in the previous table as well as detailed explanations to the adjustments to comparable GAAP measures, are set forth below:


Non-GAAP gross margin


We believe our investors benefit by understanding our non-GAAP gross margin as a way of understanding how product mix, pricing decisions and manufacturing costs influence our business.  Non-GAAP gross margin excludes restructuring costs, amortization of purchased intangible assets, stock-based compensation and amortization of acquisition-related inventory step-up from GAAP gross margin. We believe that these exclusions offer investors additional information that may be useful to view trends in our gross margin performance.


Non-GAAP operating expenses


We believe this measure is important to investors evaluating our non-GAAP spending in relation to revenue. Non-GAAP operating expenses exclude restructuring costs, amortization of purchased intangible assets, stock-based compensation and acquisition costs associated with external and incremental costs resulting directly from merger and acquisition activities such as legal, due diligence, integration costs and acquisition bonus payments from GAAP operating expenses. We believe that these exclusions offer investors supplemental information to facilitate comparison of our operating expenses to our prior results. 


Non-GAAP operating income


We believe our investors benefit by understanding our non-GAAP operating income trends which are driven by revenue, gross margin, and spending. Non-GAAP operating income excludes restructuring costs, amortization of purchased intangible assets, stock-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related inventory step-up and acquisition costs associated with external and incremental costs resulting directly from merger and acquisition activities such as legal, due diligence, integration costs and acquisition bonus payments. We believe that these exclusions offer an alternative means for our investors to evaluate current operating performance compared to results of other periods. 


Non-GAAP non-operating income, net


We believe this measure helps investors evaluate our non-operating income trends. Non-GAAP non-operating income, net excludes acquisition and divestiture gains associated with unusual acquisition related items such as an adjustment to a gain on bargain purchase (resulting from the fair value of identifiable net assets acquired exceeding the consideration transferred), adjustments to the fair value of earn-out liabilities and gains related to sale of certain businesses and investments. These gains are specific to particular acquisitions and divestitures and vary significantly in amount and timing. Non-GAAP non-operating income, net also excludes the write-off of debt issuance costs associated with a terminated or modified credit facility as well as foreign exchange (gains) losses specifically associated with hedges for two of our acquisitions. We believe that these exclusions provide investors with a supplemental view of our ongoing financial results.


Non-GAAP income tax provision


Non-GAAP items tax effected adjusts the provision for income taxes to reflect the effect of certain non-GAAP items on non-GAAP net income. We believe this information is useful to investors because it provides for consistent treatment of the excluded items in our non-GAAP presentation.


Non-GAAP net income


This measure provides a supplemental view of net income trends which are driven by non-GAAP income before taxes and our non-GAAP tax rate. Non-GAAP net income excludes restructuring costs, amortization of purchased intangible assets, stock-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related inventory step-up, acquisition and divestiture costs, a write-off of debt issuance costs associated with a terminated or modified credit facility, foreign exchange (gains) losses from hedges associated with two acquisitions, and non-GAAP tax adjustments from GAAP net income. We believe our investors benefit from understanding these exclusions and from an alternative view of our net income performance as compared to our past net income performance.


Non-GAAP diluted net income per share


We believe our investors benefit by understanding our non-GAAP operating performance as reflected in a per share calculation as a way of measuring non-GAAP operating performance by ownership in the company. Non-GAAP diluted net income per share excludes restructuring costs, amortization of purchased intangible assets, stock-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related inventory step-up, acquisition and divestiture costs, a write-off of debt issuance costs associated with a terminated or modified credit facility, foreign exchange (gains) losses from hedges associated with two acquisitions, and non-GAAP tax adjustments from GAAP diluted net income per share. We believe that these exclusions offer investors a useful view of our diluted net income per share as compared to our past diluted net income per share. 


Non-GAAP operating leverage


We believe this information is beneficial to investors as a measure of how much incremental revenue is contributed to our operating income. Non-GAAP operating leverage is the increase in non-GAAP operating income as a percentage of the increase in revenue. We believe that this information offers investors supplemental information to evaluate our current performance and to compare to our past non-GAAP operating leverage.


Non-GAAP segment operating income


Non-GAAP segment operating income excludes stock-based compensation from GAAP segment operating income. We believe this information is useful to investors because some may exclude stock-based compensation as an alternative view when assessing trends in the operating income of our segments. 


These non-GAAP measures can be used to evaluate our historical and prospective financial performance, as well as our performance relative to competitors. We believe some of our investors track our "core operating performance" as a means of evaluating our performance in the ordinary, ongoing, and customary course of our operations. Core operating performance excludes items that are non-cash, not expected to recur or not reflective of ongoing financial results.  Management also believes that looking at our core operating performance provides a supplemental way to provide consistency in period to period comparisons.  Accordingly, management excludes from non-GAAP those items relating to restructuring, amortization of purchased intangible assets, stock based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related inventory step-up, acquisition and divestiture costs, a write-off of debt issuance costs associated with a terminated or modified credit facility, foreign exchange (gains) losses from hedges associated with two acquisitions, and non-GAAP tax adjustments.  For detailed explanations of the adjustments made to comparable GAAP measures, see items (A) - ( J ) below,  







( A )

Restructuring costs. Included in our GAAP presentation of cost of sales and operating expenses, restructuring costs recorded are primarily for employee compensation resulting from reductions in employee headcount in connection with our company restructurings.  We exclude restructuring costs from our non-GAAP measures because we believe they do not reflect expected future operating expenses, they are not indicative of our core operating performance, and they are not meaningful in comparisons to our past operating performance.  














( B )

Amortization of purchased intangible assets. Included in our GAAP presentation of gross margin and operating expenses is amortization of purchased intangible assets. US GAAP accounting requires that intangible assets are recorded at fair value and amortized over their useful lives. Consequently, the timing and size of our acquisitions will cause our operating results to vary from period to period, making a comparison to past performance difficult for investors. This accounting treatment may cause differences when comparing our results to companies that grow internally because the fair value assigned to the intangible assets acquired through acquisition may significantly exceed the equivalent expenses that a company may incur for similar efforts when performed internally. Furthermore, the useful life that we expense our intangible assets over may be substantially different from the time period that an internal growth company incurs and recognizes such expenses. We believe that by excluding the amortization of purchased intangible assets, which primarily represents technology and/or customer relationships already developed, it enhances comparability by allowing investors to compare our operations pre-acquisition to those post-acquisitions and to those of our competitors that have pursued internal growth strategies.














( C )

Stock-based compensation. Included in our GAAP presentation of cost of sales and operating expenses, stock-based compensation consists of expenses for employee stock options and awards and purchase rights under our employee stock purchase plan. We exclude stock-based compensation expense from our non-GAAP measures because some investors may view it as not reflective of our core operating performance as it is a non-cash expense.   For the fourth quarter and fiscal 2012 and 2011, stock-based compensation was allocated as follows:

$             28,451















( D )

Amortization of acquisition-related inventory step-up.  The purchase accounting entries associated with our business acquisitions require us to record inventory at its fair value, which is sometimes greater than the previous book value of the inventory.  Included in our GAAP presentation of cost of sales, the increase in inventory value is amortized to cost of sales over the period that the related product is sold.  We exclude inventory step-up amortization from our non-GAAP measures because it is a non-cash expense that we do not believe is indicative of our ongoing operating results.  We further believe that excluding this item from our non-GAAP results is useful to investors in that it allows for period-over-period comparability.














( E )

Acquisition / divestiture items.  Included in our GAAP presentation of operating expenses, acquisition costs consist of external and incremental costs resulting directly from merger and acquisition activities such as legal, due diligence, integration costs and acquisition bonus payments.  Included in our GAAP presentation of non-operating income, net, acquisition / divestiture gain includes unusual acquisition or divestiture related items such as an adjustment to a gain on bargain purchase (resulting from the fair value of identifiable net assets acquired exceeding the consideration transferred), gains on divestitures of certain businesses and investments, and adjustments to the fair value of earn-out liabilities. Although we do numerous acquisitions, the costs that have been excluded from the non-GAAP measures are costs specific to particular acquisitions. These are one-time costs that vary significantly in amount and timing and are not indicative of our core operating performance.














( F )

Debt issuance cost write-off.   Included in our non-operating income, net this amount represents a write-off of debt issuance cost for a terminated credit facility in fiscal 2011 and a modified credit facility in fiscal 2012.  We excluded the debt issuance cost write-off from our non-GAAP measures. We believe that investors benefit from excluding this item from our non-operating income to facilitate a more meaningful evaluation of our non-operating income trends.














( G )

Foreign exchange (gain) loss associated with acquisitions.   This amount represents the (gain) loss on foreign exchange hedges associated with two of our acquisitions.  We excluded the foreign exchange (gain) loss from our non-GAAP measures because we believe that the exclusion of this item provides investors an enhanced view of the cost structure of our operations and facilitates comparisons with the results of other periods.                     














( H )

Non-GAAP items tax effected.   This amount adjusts the provision for income taxes to reflect the effect of the non-GAAP items (A) - (G) on non-GAAP net income.   We believe this information is useful to investors because it provides for consistent treatment of the excluded items in this non-GAAP presentation.

GAAP and non-GAAP tax rate %. These percentages are defined as GAAP income tax provision as a percentage of GAAP income before taxes and non-GAAP income tax provision as a percentage of non-GAAP income before taxes.   We believe that investors benefit from a presentation of non-GAAP tax rate percentage as a way of facilitating a comparison to non-GAAP tax rates in prior periods.














( J )

Stock-based compensation. The amounts consist of expenses for employee stock options and awards and purchase rights under our employee stock purchase plan. As referred to above we exclude stock-based compensation here because investors may view it as not reflective of our core operating performance as it is a non-cash expense. However, management does include stock-based compensation for budgeting and incentive plans as well as for reviewing internal financial reporting. We discuss our operating results by segment with and without stock-based compensation expense, as we believe it is useful to investors. Stock-based compensation not allocated to the reportable segments was approximately $3.9 million and $2.9 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 and 2011, respectively, and $13.4 million and $10.5 million for fiscal year 2012 and 2011, respectively.
