Cimatron Reports Record Q4 and Full Year 2012 Results Across all Operating Parameters

18% year-over-year increase in full year non-GAAP operating profit to $6.1 million

(PRNewswire) —  Cimatron Limited (NASDAQ and TASE: CIMT), a leading provider of integrated CAD/CAM software solutions for the toolmaking and manufacturing industries, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2012. 

Highlights of Cimatron's results for these periods include the following:

  • Record revenues of $42.3M in 2012 and $12.4M in Q4/12
  • Record non-GAAP operating profit of $6.1M in 2012 and $2.3M in Q4/12 with operating margins of 14% and 19%, respectively
  • Record $5.7M operating cash flow in 2012 (excluding a one-time royalty payment of $2.5M to the Israeli Office of the Chief Scientist)
  • 39% increase in GAAP net profit in 2012 to $3.7M

Commenting on the results, Danny Haran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cimatron, noted, "We are excited to report a record fourth quarter, rounding out the best year in Cimatron's history. We continue to see strong demand for our products, as well as robust growth in maintenance revenues from existing and new customers. On a constant currency basis, in 2012, our revenues grew by 7%. We achieved these strong results despite a delay in some US-based projects towards the end of the fourth quarter, which were attributed to customer 'Fiscal Cliff' concerns. These delays are believed to be behind us, as indicated by initial results in January."

Continued Mr. Haran, "We look forward to an even stronger 2013. Based on what we are currently seeing in the market, combined with the current demand across our product portfolio, we expect to continue to grow our top line in 2013. This, we believe, will be translated into increased growth in operating profit due to the strong operating leverage inherent in our business model, which allows us to bring a great portion of any revenue increase down to the operating profit."

"We aim to release a new and exciting version of CimatronE, version 11, towards the end of Q1 2013. Soon after that, the GibbsCAM 2013 version release is planned. With numerous improvements and advances, we believe these innovations will greatly support our sales efforts in 2013.

"Cimatron is currently exploring new opportunities in the field of additive manufacturing, also known as 3D Printing. Over the last few years, some of our customers and business partners have increasingly started to use and apply this emerging technology to their manufacturing processes, and we are researching how we can better serve our customers and partners in this exciting new way of manufacturing.

"At this point, Cimatron has no revenues from additive manufacturing. Yet, we believe that additive and hybrid manufacturing have great potential to emerge in many directions, and that our knowledge and vast expertise in 3D modeling and manufacturing will allow us to take part in this field, as it becomes more and more commonly used, side by side with traditional subtractive manufacturing techniques," concluded Mr. Haran.

The following provides details on Cimatron's GAAP and non-GAAP results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2012:

GAAP:
Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $12.4 million, compared to $12.2 million recorded in the fourth quarter of 2011. In the full year ended December 31, 2012, revenues were $42.3 million, compared to $40.7 million in 2011. 

Gross Profit for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $10.8 million, as compared to $10.7 million in the same period in 2011. Gross margin in the fourth quarter of 2012 was 88% of revenues, the same as in the fourth quarter of 2011. In 2012 as a whole, gross profit was $37.2 million, compared to $35.3 million in 2011. Gross margin for the year ended December 31st, 2012 was 88% compared to a gross margin of 87% in 2011.

Operating profit in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $2.1 million, as compared to $1.9 million in the same period in 2011. In 2012 as a whole, Cimatron recorded an operating profit of $5.5 million, compared to an operating profit of $4.1 million in 2011. 

Net Profit for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $1.3 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, compared to a net profit of $1.4 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, recorded in the same quarter of 2011.  In 2012 as a whole, net profit was $3.7 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, compared to a net profit of $2.7 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, in 2011. 

Non-GAAP:
Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $12.4 million, compared to $12.2 million recorded in the fourth quarter of 2011. In the full year ended December 31, 2012, revenues were $42.3 million, compared to $40.7 million in 2011. 

Gross Profit for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $11.0 million, as compared to $10.9 million in the same period in 2011. Gross margin in the fourth quarter of 2012 was 89% the same as in the fourth quarter of 2011. In 2012 as a whole, gross profit was $37.4 million, compared to $35.9 million in 2011. Gross margin for the year ended December 31st, 2012 was 88%, the same as in 2011.

Operating Profit in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $2.3 million, as compared to $2.2 million in the same period in 2011. In 2012 as a whole, Cimatron recorded an operating profit of $6.1 million, compared to an operating profit of $5.1 million in 2011.  

Net profit for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $1.7 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, compared to a net profit of $1.6 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, recorded in the same quarter of 2011. In 2012 as a whole, net profit was $4.4 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, compared to a net profit of $4.5 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, in 2011.

The contrast between non-GAAP operating profit (which rose in the full year of 2012 compared to 2011) and non-GAAP net profit (which was in 2012 at the same level as in 2011) was mainly attributable to an increase in income tax expense.  Income tax expense constituted 26% of income before taxes in 2012, causing a more significant reduction in non-GAAP net profit, whereas it constituted only 10% of income before taxes in 2011. The main reason for the higher effective tax rate in 2012 is the Company's having completed the use of its remaining U.S. tax loss carry-forwards towards the end of 2011.
