MALVERN, Pa., Nov. 03, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE:VSH), one of the world’s largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors and passive components, today announced its results for the fiscal quarter and nine fiscal months ended October 3, 2015.

Revenues for the fiscal quarter ended October 3, 2015 were $560.7 million, compared to $638.2 million for the fiscal quarter ended September 27, 2014. The net loss attributable to Vishay stockholders for the fiscal quarter ended October 3, 2015 was $(27.7) million, or $(0.19) per share, compared to net earnings attributable to Vishay stockholders of $27.0 million, or $0.17 per diluted share for the fiscal quarter ended September 27, 2014.

Net loss attributable to Vishay stockholders for the fiscal quarter ended October 3, 2015 includes restructuring and severance costs of $2.3 million, impairment of goodwill and long-lived assets charges of $63.0 million, and a loss related to the Tianjin explosion of $5.4 million. Net earnings attributable to Vishay stockholders for the fiscal quarter ended September 27, 2014 include restructuring and severance costs of $3.5 million and U.S. pension settlement charges of $15.6 million. These items are summarized on the attached reconciliation schedule. Adjusted earnings per diluted share, which exclude these items, were $0.17 and $0.26 for the fiscal quarters ended October 3, 2015 and September 27, 2014, respectively.

Commenting on the results for the third quarter 2015, Dr. Gerald Paul, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “As expected, the general economic conditions were not favorable in general. Additionally, the temporary shutdown of our Tianjin facility, caused by the shockwave of the explosion in the port of Tianjin, resulted in lost revenues of approximately $20 million in the quarter. Despite the current headwinds, we expect a free cash flow generation of substantially over $100 million for the year 2015.”

Dr. Gerald Paul continued, “The Capella business, acquired in 2014, has not performed as expected in its traditional end market of smart phones. We recorded impairment charges of $57.6 million to write down the related assets to their fair value. We still expect that the addition of Capella will, in the mid and long term, add considerable value to our entire optoelectronic components business through the creation of an in-house design capability and so to strengthen our position and potential for growing our optoelectronic business.”

Dr. Gerald Paul continued, “Our restructuring programs—the announced global fixed cost reduction and the rationalization in MOSFETs—are on plan. They will noticeably improve Vishay’s results in the future, independently of the economic environment. We believe in a cyclical rebound of the economy in the course of next year.”

Commenting on the outlook for the fourth quarter 2015 Dr. Paul stated, “We expect a continuation of the inventory reduction at distribution during the quarter and guide for revenues of $540 to $580 million and for gross margins of 21% to 23%, based on current exchange rates.”

About Vishay

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc., a Fortune 1000 Company listed on the NYSE (VSH), is one of the world's largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors (diodes, MOSFETs, and infrared optoelectronics) and passive electronic components (resistors, inductors, and capacitors). These components are used in virtually all types of electronic devices and equipment, in the industrial, computing, automotive, consumer, telecommunications, military, aerospace, power supplies, and medical markets. Vishay’s product innovations, successful acquisition strategy, and "one-stop shop" service have made it a global industry leader. Vishay can be found on the Internet at www.vishay.com.

This press release includes certain financial measures which are not recognized in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), including adjusted net earnings; adjusted earnings per share; earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”); adjusted EBITDA; and adjusted EBITDA margin; which are considered "non-GAAP financial measures" under the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission rules. These non-GAAP measures supplement our GAAP measures of performance or liquidity and should not be viewed as an alternative to GAAP measures of performance or liquidity. Non-GAAP measures such as adjusted net earnings, adjusted earnings per share, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted EBITDA margin do not have uniform definitions. These measures, as calculated by Vishay, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Management believes that such measures are meaningful to investors because they provide insight with respect to intrinsic operating results of the Company. Although the term "EBITDA" is not defined in GAAP, the measure is derived using various line items measured in accordance with GAAP. Reconciling items to arrive at adjusted net earnings represent significant charges or credits that are important to understanding the Company's intrinsic operations. Reconciling items to calculate adjusted EBITDA represent those same items used in computing adjusted net earnings, as relevant. Furthermore, the presented calculation of adjusted EBITDA is substantially similar to, but not identical to, a measure used in the calculation of financial ratios required for covenant compliance under Vishay’s revolving credit facility. These reconciling items are indicated on the accompanying reconciliation schedules and are more fully described in the Company's financial statements presented in its annual report on Form 10-K and its quarterly reports presented on Forms 10-Q.

Statements contained herein that relate to the Company's future performance, including statements with respect to forecasted revenues, margins, cash generation, internal growth and results, Capella’s future performance and the growth of the Company’s optoelectronics business, cost reduction programs and their financial impact, and the performance of the economy in general, are forward-looking statements within the safe harbor provisions of Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Words such as “believe,” “estimate,” “will be,” “will,” “would,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “plan,” “project,” “intend,” “could,” “should,” or other similar words or expressions often identify forward-looking statements. Such statements are based on current expectations only, and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions, many of which are beyond our control. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results, performance, or achievements may vary materially from those anticipated, estimated or projected. Among the factors that could cause actual results to materially differ include: general business and economic conditions; delays or difficulties in implementing our cost reduction strategies; changes in foreign currency exchange rates; competition and technological changes in our industries; difficulties in new product development; difficulties in identifying suitable acquisition candidates, consummating a transaction on terms which we consider acceptable, and integration and performance of acquired businesses; uncertainty related to the effects of changes in foreign currency exchange rates; and other factors affecting our operations that are set forth in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our annual reports on Form 10-K and our quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
