Field Solutions revenue was $87.1 million, down 24 percent. Mobile Solutions revenue was $128.3 million, up 4 percent. Advanced Devices revenue was $31.9 million, down 13 percent. Foreign currency translation unfavorably impacted company revenue by approximately 4 percent as compared to the second quarter of 2014.

GAAP operating income was $36.0 million, down 63 percent as compared to the second quarter of 2014. GAAP operating margin was 6.1 percent of revenue as compared to 15.1 percent of revenue in the second quarter of 2014.   

GAAP net income was $25.9 million, down 67 percent as compared to the second quarter of 2014. Diluted GAAP earnings per share were $0.10 as compared to diluted GAAP earnings per share of $0.29 in the second quarter of 2014.

Non-GAAP operating income of $97.1 million was down 35 percent as compared to the second quarter of 2014. Non-GAAP operating margin was 16.6 percent of revenue as compared to 23.2 percent of revenue in the second quarter of 2014.

Operating cash flow for the first two quarters of 2015 was $204.0 million, down 5 percent as compared to the first two quarters of 2014.

"We met our revenue and profit expectations in the quarter despite the ongoing challenges of agriculture, exchange rates, and the primary and secondary effects of the oil price shock," said Steven W. Berglund, Trimble's president and chief executive officer. "We also saw a sharp pullback in the Chinese and Brazilian markets, reflecting new investment uncertainty in both markets. Although this regional decline will place pressure on our second half, our basic outlook for 2016 remains consistent—with both a return to revenue growth and traditional operating margins." 

Forward Looking Guidance

For the third quarter of 2015 Trimble expects revenue to be between $535 million and $560 million with GAAP earnings per share of $0.01 to $0.08 and non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.19 to $0.26. Non-GAAP guidance excludes the amortization of intangibles of $41 million related to previous acquisitions, anticipated acquisition costs of $3 million, the anticipated impact of stock-based compensation expense of $13 million, and $4 million in anticipated restructuring charges.  GAAP guidance assumes a tax rate of 28 percent and non-GAAP guidance assumes a tax rate of 24 percent.  Both GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per share assume approximately 261 million shares outstanding.

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
