HICKORY, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CommScope Holding Company, Inc. (NASDAQ: COMM), a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, reported sales of $1.14 billion and net income of $34 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2017. Non-GAAP adjusted net income for the first quarter 2017 was $103 million, or $0.52 per diluted share. A reconciliation of reported GAAP results to non-GAAP results is attached.

In comparison, for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, CommScope reported sales of $1.14 billion and net income of $13 million, $0.06 per share. Non-GAAP adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2016 was $94 million, or $0.48 per diluted share.

"Once again we delivered strong quarterly performance that met expectations, despite some integration challenges that we are actively addressing. We are pleased with the results of our U.S. wireless and fiber-to-the-X businesses, as well as a return to growth in Europe and the Middle East," said President and Chief Executive Officer Eddie Edwards. "These bright spots were dampened by the underperformance of our Indoor Network Solutions business.

"We continue to provide our customers with world-class solutions, empowering them to build the high-quality networks of the future that enable the connected lifestyle. We are confident in the strength of our team and portfolio."

First Quarter 2017 Overview

First quarter 2017 sales were essentially unchanged year over year at $1.14 billion. Strength in the U.S. and the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region - particularly in the wireless and FTTX markets - was offset by weakness in other geographies. Foreign exchange rate changes negatively affected revenue by approximately 1 percent year over year.

GAAP operating income in the first quarter of 2017 rose 34 percent year over year to $121 million. Non-GAAP adjusted operating income, which excludes amortization of purchased intangibles, integration and transaction costs, restructuring costs and other special items, increased 3 percent year over year to $217 million. The increases to both GAAP and non-GAAP operating income were driven by benefits from cost reduction initiatives and favorable geographic mix. In addition, GAAP operating income increased due to the absence of goodwill impairment charges and lower intangible amortization.

GAAP net income for the first quarter 2017 rose substantially year over year to $34 million, or $0.17 per diluted share. Excluding special items, first quarter adjusted net income increased 9 percent year over year to $103 million. Adjusted earnings were $0.52 per diluted share, up 8 percent year over year.

First quarter Connectivity Solutions segment sales declined by approximately 1 percent to $682 million. Growth in North American and EMEA FTTX solutions was offset by a decline in our Indoor Network Solutions business. Foreign exchange rate changes negatively affected revenue by approximately 1 percent from the year-ago period. Connectivity Solutions GAAP operating income declined 4 percent to $48 million in the quarter. Adjusted operating income decreased 14 percent year over year to $115 million. Results were impacted by manufacturing inefficiencies related to ramping capacity in several North American facilities and the impact of lower pricing. These decreases were partially offset by cost reduction initiatives.

First quarter Mobility Solutions segment sales of $456 million were essentially stable year over year. Strong, double-digit percentage growth in the U.S., driven by higher spending by certain North American wireless operators, coupled with mid-single digit percentage growth in EMEA, was tempered by declines in the Asia Pacific region. Foreign exchange rate changes had a negative impact of approximately 1 percent on Mobility Solutions segment sales compared to the year-ago period. Mobility Solutions GAAP operating income rose 81 percent to $74 million. Adjusted operating income for the Mobility segment increased 33 percent to $102 million, or 22 percent of segment sales. The more than 550 basis point increase in operating income margin compared to the prior year was driven by favorable geographic mix, which was partially offset by lower pricing.

Stock Repurchase Program

On February 23, 2017, the Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $100 million of CommScope's outstanding common stock. During the first quarter of 2017, the company repurchased $65 million of its common stock, or 1.6 million shares, at an average cost of $39.81 per share. During April, CommScope completed its stock repurchase program. Total company stock repurchased under the program was 2.5 million shares at an average cost of $40.23 per share. The intent of the repurchase was to reduce dilution from the CommScope equity-based award programs.

Debt Refinancing

In March, CommScope issued $750 million of 5 percent senior unsecured notes due March 2027. The company used the proceeds of the issuance of the notes, together with cash on hand, to (i) redeem all $500 million of the 4.375 percent senior secured notes due 2020, (ii) repay a portion of the outstanding borrowings under its senior secured term loans, including all $112 million of outstanding principal on the senior secured term loan due 2018 and $138 million of outstanding principal on the senior secured term loan due 2022 and (iii) pay related fees and expenses. The refinancing extended the average tenor of CommScope's debt and increased the amount of fixed-rate, unsecured debt.

Outlook

CommScope management expects more cautious spending patterns at certain North American operators, continuing softness in the Indoor Network Solutions business and integration challenges to impact our near-term performance. CommScope expects improved operator spending in the second half of 2017.

These factors are reflected in the following second quarter and full year 2017 guidance provided by CommScope management.

Second Quarter 2017 Guidance:

  • Revenue of $1.2 billion - $1.25 billion
  • Operating income of $145 million - $160 million
  • Adjusted operating income of $245 million - $265 million
  • Earnings per diluted share of $0.28 - $0.32, based on 197 million weighted average diluted shares
  • Adjusted earnings per diluted share of $0.62 - $0.67
  • Adjusted effective tax rate of approximately 35 percent

Full Year 2017 Guidance:

  • Revenue of $4.85 billion - $4.95 billion
  • Operating income of $670 million - $700 million
  • Adjusted operating income of $1.05 billion - $1.09 billion
  • Earnings per diluted share of $1.41 - $1.48, based on 198 million weighted average diluted shares
  • Adjusted earnings per diluted share of $2.70 - $2.80
  • Adjusted effective tax rate of approximately 35 percent
  • Cash flow from operations > $600 million

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

CommScope management believes that presenting certain non-GAAP financial measures provides meaningful information to investors in understanding operating results and may enhance investors' ability to analyze financial and business trends. Non-GAAP measures are not a substitute for GAAP measures and should be considered together with the GAAP financial measures. As calculated, our non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. In addition, CommScope management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures allow investors to compare period to period more easily by excluding items that could have a disproportionately negative or positive impact on results in any particular period.
