"The fourth quarter results were a strong ending to a challenging year.  Beyond the revenue growth in the quarter, fundamental financial performance continued to progress, with improved margins – reflecting a richer mix of higher-value product solutions," said Steven W. Berglund, Trimble's president and chief executive officer.  "While the fourth quarter supports the anticipation of an improved organic growth outlook for 2014, the environment continues to be comparatively uncertain with variations of regional economic performance, continuing deferrals of investment, and continued constrained government funding." 

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 2013 E&C revenue was $331.1 million, up 23 percent as compared to the fourth quarter of 2012. E&C growth was across all major product categories as well as from the impact of acquisitions.

Non-GAAP operating income was $71.6 million, or 21.6 percent of revenue, as compared to $42.4 million, or 15.8 percent of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2012.  Non-GAAP operating margin was up due to increased sales of higher gross margin products and leverage on higher revenue.

Fiscal 2013 E&C revenue was $1.2 billion, up 12 percent as compared to fiscal 2012.  Revenue growth was primarily due to sales of building construction and heavy and highway solutions, as well as the impact of acquisitions.

Non-GAAP operating income was $263.6 million, or 21.6 percent of revenue, as compared to $219.1 million, or 20.1 percent of revenue, in fiscal 2012.  Non-GAAP operating margin increased primarily due to a richer product mix and leverage on higher revenue.

Field Solutions

Fourth quarter 2013 Field Solutions revenue was $111.1 million, up three percent as compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 due primarily to increased sales of agriculture products, partially offset by declines in Geographic Information System (GIS) sales.

Fiscal 2013 Field Solutions revenue was $473.9 million, down two percent as compared to fiscal 2012 due to lower sales of GIS products, partially offset by growth in agriculture product sales.

Fiscal 2013 Field Solutions operating income was $173.1 million, or 36.5 percent of revenue, as compared to $182.1 million, or 37.8 percent of revenue, in fiscal 2012.  Fiscal 2013 non-GAAP operating income was $176.2 million, or 37.2 percent of revenue, as compared to $184.9 million , or 38.4 percent of revenue, in fiscal 2012.  Non-GAAP operating margins were down primarily due to reduced operating leverage as a result of lower GIS revenue.
