Fuel Systems Solutions Reports First Quarter 2010 Results
– First Quarter 2010 Revenue $161.7 million, compared to $80.1 million a year ago –
– 2010 Outlook Remains Unchanged –
NEW YORK, May 6, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fuel Systems Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: FSYS) reported results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2010.
Mariano Costamagna, Fuel Systems' CEO, said, "As expected, the first quarter 2010 was an exceptional start to the year. We delivered revenue of $161.7 million, more than double the year-ago quarter, and generated impressive gross and operating margins. Our transportation business clearly benefitted from continued DOEM demand in Italy, and we are encouraged by the improvements in our transportation aftermarket and industrial businesses."
Matthew Beale, Fuel Systems' President, CFO and Secretary, said, "We remain focused on our core organic growth strategy as DOEM demand adjusts to an unsubsidized Italian market as we move into the second quarter of the year. We believe that growing OEM support for alternative fuels, the wide choice of vehicle models now featuring our technology, and the accelerated payback period for our systems will continue to drive demand this year, although not at levels stimulated by a strong incentive program."
"Importantly, we are beginning to derive benefit from investments undertaken during 2009. The adoption of gaseous fueled vehicles is increasing globally and our expanded international footprint positions us to capture growth in high potential markets around the world. With a market leading technology, product and customer platform, our enlarged industrial business is well positioned to benefit from improvement in the capital spending environment during 2010." Beale continued.
First Quarter Financial Results
Revenue for the first quarter of 2010 was $161.7 million, including approximately $3.8 million of revenue as a result of foreign exchange impact, compared to $80.1 million in the first quarter of 2009. The year-over-year revenue increase was attributable to DOEM installations in the company's transportation business, driven by the expired 2009 Italian incentive program. Gross profit for the first quarter 2010 was $63.6 million, or 39% of revenue, compared to $24.3 million, or 30% of revenue a year ago, reflecting the aforementioned revenue growth, additional margin contribution from the industrial business, and economies of scale. Operating income for the period totaled $44.7 million, or 28% of revenue, compared to $11.4 million, or 14% of revenue, in the first quarter of 2009. Net income for the first quarter 2010 was $28.0 million, or $1.59 per diluted share, compared to $7.1 million, or $0.44 per diluted share in the first quarter 2009.
On segment basis, first quarter 2010 revenues from BRC Operations, primarily representing the company's transportation business, increased $76.0 million to $137.6 million from the same quarter a year ago, and revenues from IMPCO Operations, primarily representing the company's industrial business, increased 30% to $24.0 million from the same quarter a year ago. BRC first quarter 2010 operating income increased $34.9 million from the same quarter a year ago to $45.7 million; IMPCO first quarter 2010 operating income was $0.5 million, compared to operating income of $2.6 million in the same period a year ago. A table presenting operating segment data can be found in the tables below.
"Fuel Systems' first quarter 2010 growth was robust as consumer buying decisions were accelerated by the expiration of Italian subsidies. As we have noted, we have factored no benefits from subsidies in this country into our 2010 outlook, and therefore expect installations as well as financial results in the remaining quarters of the year to reflect this. We continue to broaden our international expansion through OEM, DOEM and aftermarket channels, and are encouraged by the stronger trends we are witnessing in our industrial business. Given current low visibility with respect to DOEM installations as we move into a subsidy-free Italian market, we are not making any change to our financial outlook at this time, and will provide an update with second quarter 2010 results," concluded Beale.
