Molex Q1 - not as good as 2011

Revenue for the March 2012 quarter was $837.1 million, down 4.3% from the March 2011 quarter. Net income for the March 2012 quarter was $64.9 million compared to net income of $68.1 million for the March 2011 quarter.
“Business conditions stabilized during the March quarter, with order rates improving each month and the book-to-bill ratio increasing to 1.04. Costs remain under control and are being rigorously monitored,” commented Martin P. Slark, Molex’s Chief Executive Officer. “The long term themes driving the business - mobility, IT spending and growth in emerging markets - continue to develop, affording Molex significant opportunities for long-term growth. In addition, cash flow has been very strong, exceeding net income for each of the last three quarters.”

Outlook

Based upon current order rates, backlog and normal seasonality, the Company estimates revenue in a range of $870 to $900 million for the June 2012 quarter. At this level of revenue, the Company expects earnings per share in a range of $0.36 to $0.40 assuming constant foreign currency rates and commodity prices and an effective tax rate of 31%.
