  • 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.

Fourth quarter operating income in E&C was $39.2 million, or 14.6 percent of revenue as compared to $36.6 million, or 15.3 percent of revenue in the fourth quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP operating income was $42.4 million, or 15.8 percent of revenue, as compared to $39.4 million, or 16.5 percent of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2011.  Non-GAAP operating margin was down primarily due to operating expenses associated with Trimble Dimensions, Trimble's biannual user conference.

Fiscal 2012 E&C revenue was $1.1 billion, up 20 percent as compared to fiscal 2011. Growth in E&C revenue came from revenue growth across all major product categories as well as contributions from acquisitions. 

Fiscal 2012 operating income in E&C was $207.2 million or 19.0 percent of revenue, as compared to $149.0 million, or 16.4 percent of revenue in fiscal 2011. Fiscal 2012 non-GAAP operating income was $219.1 million, or 20.1 percent of revenue, as compared to $159.2 million, or 17.6 percent of revenue, in fiscal 2011.  Non-GAAP operating margin increased primarily due to leverage on higher revenue and product mix.
