Harman International Industries, Incorporated (NYSE:HAR), the premier connected technologies company for automotive, consumer and enterprise markets, today announced results for the first quarter ended September 30, 2015.

This Smart News Release features multimedia. View the full release here: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20151029005394/en/

Net sales for the first quarter were $1.6 billion, an increase of 14 percent compared to the prior year or 23 percent excluding the impact of foreign currency translation (ex-FX). Excluding the impact of acquisitions and foreign currency translation, net sales increased 13 percent compared to the prior year. Connected Car net sales increased eight percent (19 percent ex-FX), due to platform expansions, higher take rates, and stronger automotive production. Lifestyle Audio net sales increased 14 percent (21 percent ex-FX) due to higher consumer audio and car audio sales. Net sales in Professional Solutions decreased three percent (increased one percent ex-FX). Connected Services net sales were $174 million compared to $68 million in the prior year, due to the expansion of the Company’s services portfolio, primarily as a result of the acquisition of Symphony Teleca (STC).

Excluding restructuring, non-recurring charges and acquisition-related items, first quarter operating income increased 24 percent to $158 million compared to $128 million in the prior year, and EBITDA increased 20 percent to $197 million compared to $164 million in the prior year. Earnings per diluted share increased 13 percent to $1.48 compared to $1.31 in the prior year.

On a GAAP basis, first quarter operating income increased 14 percent to $131 million compared to $116 million in the prior year, EBITDA increased 23 percent to $188 million compared to $153 million in the prior year, and earnings per diluted share increased two percent to $1.20 compared to $1.18 in the prior year. The Company recorded $26 million of restructuring, non-recurring charges and acquisition-related items compared to $12 million in the prior year. The increase was primarily due to non-cash amortization of acquired intangible assets.

“HARMAN is off to a solid start to deliver on our fiscal 2016 targets with double-digit revenue and earnings growth in the first quarter, driven by robust demand for connected systems and services in the car,” said Dinesh C. Paliwal, the Company’s Chairman, President and CEO. “Demand from automakers for embedded infotainment and car audio solutions remains strong as evidenced by the $1.1 billion in new automotive awards in the quarter, building on our industry-leading backlog of $23 billion as of the end of fiscal 2015.”

Summary of Operations – Gross Margin and SG&A (Non-GAAP)

Gross margin for the first quarter of fiscal year 2016 increased 80 basis points to 30.0 percent. The improvement was primarily due to the impact of higher sales volume leveraging a more efficient fixed production cost base, as well as the expansion of our services portfolio.

In the first quarter of fiscal year 2016, SG&A expense as a percentage of net sales was consistent with the prior year at 20.3 percent.
