LAFOX, Ill., April 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Richardson Electronics, Ltd. (NASDAQ: RELL) today reported financial results for its third quarter ended February 27, 2021. The Company also announced that its Board of Directors declared a $0.06 per share quarterly cash dividend.

Third Quarter Results

Net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 increased 18.3% to $45.2 million compared to net sales of $38.2 million in the prior year’s third quarter primarily due to higher net sales for Richardson Healthcare and PMT, partially offset by lower net sales for Canvys. Richardson Electronics is an “essential business” and continued operating its manufacturing and distribution businesses on a global basis throughout the COVID-19 pandemic under strict safety guidelines. Richardson Healthcare sales increased $0.9 million or 41.7% primarily due to an increase in demand for the ALTA750™ Tubes, reflecting the highest quantity sold in any quarter. In addition, pre-owned CT scanner sales increased in Latin America. PMT sales increased $6.2 million or 21.6% from last year’s third quarter because of higher sales of semiconductor wafer fab equipment specialty products as well as power conversion and RF and microwave components. Power grid tube sales continued to be negatively impacted by the pandemic, however sales of certain product lines increased from the third quarter of fiscal 2020. Canvys sales decreased by $0.1 million or 1.7% due to temporary decreased customer demand in Europe related to COVID-19, partially offset by an increase in North American sales. No customers were lost.

Gross margin improved to 34.9% of net sales during the third quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to 33.1% of net sales during the third quarter of fiscal 2020. PMT margin increased to 34.9% from 32.8% due to a favorable product mix. Canvys margin as a percent of net sales increased to 35.2% from 32.8% also because of its product mix. Healthcare margin as a percent of net sales was 33.0% in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to 38.3% in the prior year’s third quarter primarily due to a smaller percentage of replacement parts sales.

Operating expenses were $15.5 million and Non-GAAP operating expenses* were $13.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to $12.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2020. The increase in Non-GAAP operating expenses resulted from higher employee compensation expense and legal fees, partially offset by lower travel expenses. Throughout the pandemic, the Company decided to support its employees through regular merit increases and incentive plans, and by avoiding layoffs or furloughs.

As a result, the Company reported an operating income of $0.3 million and Non-GAAP operating income* of $1.9 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to an operating income of $11,000 in the prior year’s third quarter. Other expense for the third quarter of fiscal 2021, including interest income and foreign exchange, was less than $0.1 million, compared to other income of $0.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2020.

The income tax provision of $0.1 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 reflected a provision for foreign income taxes, which was lower than the prior year’s third quarter, and the offset of a U.S. tax provision against the valuation allowance. Net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was $0.2 million and Non-GAAP net income was $1.8 million* compared to a net loss of $0.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2020. Earnings per common share (diluted) was $0.02 and Non-GAAP earnings per common share (diluted)* was $0.14 in the third quarter of fiscal 2021.

“We are pleased with the double digit sales growth in Healthcare, PMG and semiconductor wafer fab equipment products, particularly considering the current global business environment and ongoing impact of COVID-19,” said Edward J. Richardson, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and President. “The Richardson team deserves a lot of credit for delivering our best quarter since the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 after adjusting for the one-time settlement cost,” he concluded.

FINANCIAL SUMMARY – NINE MONTHS ENDED FEBRUARY 27, 2021

Net sales for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 were $126.5 million, an increase of 6.7%, compared to net sales of $118.5 million during the first nine months of fiscal 2020.

The income tax provision of $0.2 million during the first nine months of fiscal 2021 reflected a provision for foreign income taxes, which was lower than in the prior year’s first nine months, and the offset of a U.S. tax benefit against the valuation allowance.

Net loss for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 was $0.2 million and Non-GAAP net income* was $1.4 million, compared to a net loss of $0.6 million during the first nine months of fiscal 2020.
