Note: In accordance with GAAP, the Company is deferring significant revenue and the related costs associated with high margin sales of lifetime maps, connected services and premium traffic over their economic lives. In the fourth quarter, the Company deferred, net of amortization of previous deferrals, $64 million of revenue, $22 million of costs, and approximately $0.19 of diluted EPS, net of taxes, into future years. For the full year, the Company deferred, net of amortization of previous deferrals, $131 million of revenue, $31 million of costs, and approximately $0.42 of diluted EPS, net of taxes, into future years. A table outlining the impact of this net deferral in both 2010 and 2009 is included for reference. Results have not been adjusted unless specifically stated as such.

Business highlights:

  • Achieved significant full year revenue and operating income growth in outdoor/fitness, marine and aviation. These growth segments generated 61% of the total operating income in 2010.
  • Sold over 16 million units in 2010 with unit growth in outdoor/fitness and automotive OEM partially offsetting declines in personal navigation devices (PND).
  • Continued to be the world-wide PND market share leader with gains in Europe and Asia.
  • Sustained revenue growth in the outdoor/fitness segment as our fitness products continue to penetrate within the growing category.
  • Continued to innovate across our product portfolio with enhanced offerings for over-the-road truck drivers and mariners to further our competitive position in each of these markets.
  • Announced our expanding relationship with Chrysler on the UConnect Touch, developed in conjunction with Panasonic and available on numerous models including the Chrysler 300, Dodge Durango and Dodge Charger. Our relationship with Chrysler now extends to 15 makes and models.
  • Introduced the GTU™ 10 GPS locator and web-based Garmin Tracker™ which represents a new product category for Garmin and is designed to serve the needs of many diverse markets – parents, pet owners, cyclists and runners to name just a few.
  • Launched a suite of Garmin applications for iPhone and Android powered devices including StreetPilot® for iPhone, Garmin Tracker, myMechanic, and My-Cast® Lite.

One-time tax adjustments for 2010 totaled $98.7 million and include the release of uncertain tax position reserves from 2006 to 2008 related to our settlement in the US, offset by the amount of our settlement for the 2007 tax year in the US and Taiwan surtax expense due to the release of reserves. Normalized effective tax rate has been adjusted accordingly.

Executive overview from Dr. Min Kao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer:

“While 2010 represented a year of adversity for our PND business and our handset initiative, we exit the year with a growing presence in outdoor/fitness, aviation, marine and auto OEM that give us confidence in the long-term outlook for Garmin,” said Dr. Min Kao, chairman and chief executive officer of Garmin Ltd. “Strong revenue and operating income performance in these segments was a highlight for the year and a foundation on which we hope to grow. The business generated free cash flow of $738 million which further strengthened our debt-free balance sheet and afforded us the opportunity to return significant value to shareholders in 2010 through a dividend and share repurchases.

The automotive/mobile segment revenues declined 31% on a year-over-year basis in the fourth quarter as the PND market declined from the 2009 holiday season, ASPs continued to decline, and significant revenues from bundled lifetime map products were deferred into future periods. We expect the PND market to continue to decline in 2011 with moderating ASPs and an increasing impact of revenue deferrals as bundled lifetime maps constitute a higher percentage of our product mix. Despite the challenging headwinds, our strategy is to manage the business to maintain our market leadership and maximize profitability. In addition, we have accelerated our investment in the auto OEM category in response to increasing opportunities in this market segment. Our broad strengths and capabilities, including vertical integration, user interface design, development agility, and high reliability solutions for other OEM applications, differentiate Garmin from the competition.

The outdoor/fitness segment posted strong year-over-year revenue growth of 15% in the fourth quarter with gross and operating margins consistent with the solid results delivered throughout 2010. The strong margin performance allowed the segment to contribute $251 million of operating income in 2010. Beginning in the first quarter of 2011, we will report the financial results of the outdoor and fitness segments separately. We are excited about the innovative products that we will be delivering in both the outdoor and fitness segments this year. The launch of the GTU 10 brings Garmin into the tracking market with an affordably priced solution for a variety of applications and provides incremental revenue opportunity in the outdoor business. In the fitness category, we are well positioned as the leader in the GPS- enabled running market offering products designed to meet the needs of both the elite athlete and the value-conscious runner or cyclist. Our fitness product development pipeline is full of exciting offerings that will be announced during the course of the year.

The aviation segment posted fourth quarter revenue growth of 10% as both our OEM and retrofit business improved. For the full year, operating margins improved to 28% and the segment contributed $72 million of operating income. In 2011, we will be focused on expanding our presence in the Part 25 high-end business jet market. This will provide long-term sustainable growth for our aviation segment with revenue contribution beginning in 2013. Recovery in the aviation segment has continued to lag the broader economy but we anticipate improvement in 2011 that will drive revenue growth.

The marine segment posted fourth quarter revenue growth of 9% over the same quarter of last year enabling us to deliver 12% growth for the full year. With full year improvement in margins, the segment contributed $67 million of operating income in 2010. As we look forward to 2011, we are excited to be launching Garmin marine electronics with a growing number of OEM partners including Volvo Penta, Bavaria Yachts, Tiara Yachts and Chaparral. In addition, we have refreshed our fishfinder line-up for the spring season. Throughout the coming year, we will continue to build our position in the segment through innovation and OEM relationships that offer long-term growth.”

Financial overview from Kevin Rauckman, Chief Financial Officer:

“Our financial results for the quarter and the year highlight our commitment to diversifying our business through continued investment and growth in outdoor/fitness, marine, aviation and auto OEM,” said Kevin Rauckman, Chief Financial Officer of Garmin Ltd. “These segments provided over $390 million of operating income in 2010, or 61% of the total operating income, and will continue to grow in 2011 and beyond.

Gross margin for the overall business in the fourth quarter was 45% which represents only a slight decline from the fourth quarter 2009 level of 46%. The automotive/mobile segment gross margin declined to 35%. The decline is partially related to an increasing mix of units bundled with lifetime maps, premium traffic and connected services, for which a portion of the high margin revenue and costs must be deferred. Average selling price (ASP) declines have continued to moderate, excluding the impact of deferred revenue, and we expect the trend to continue in 2011. Gross margins for the outdoor/fitness, aviation and marine segments all remained strong at 66%, 70% and 63%, respectively.

Operating margin for the overall business was 22% in the current quarter as research and development and selling, general and administrative costs increased as a percentage of sales over the year ago quarter. Operating margin, excluding the impact of deferred revenues and costs, was 25%. Total operating expenses were up slightly on a year-over-year basis with growth in selling, general and administrative costs offset by lower advertising expenses. We reduced advertising expenses by $9 million, or 17%, while other selling, general and administrative expenses increased by $9 million, or 12%. The increase in selling, general and administrative costs was driven by legal settlements and fees that are one-time in nature. Research and development costs were flat compared to the year ago quarter.

We generated $175 million of free cash flow in the fourth quarter of 2010 and $738 million for the full year. This cash generation funded significant returns to our shareholders through a $1.50 per share dividend in April 2010 and stock repurchases throughout the year. The resulting cash and marketable securities balance was over $2.0 billion at the end of the year.”

Dividend Recommendation

The Board intends to recommend to the shareholders for approval at the annual meeting to be held on June 3, 2011 a cash dividend in the amount of $2.00 per share (of which, $1.60 will be paid in the Company’s 2011 fiscal year and subject to possible adjustment based on the total amount of the dividend in Swiss Francs as approved at the annual meeting) payable in four installments as follows: $0.80 on June 30, 2011 to shareholders of record on June 15, 2011, $0.40 on September 30, 2011 to shareholders of record on September 15, 2011, $0.40 on December 30, 2011 to shareholders of record on December 15, 2011 and $0.40 on March 30, 2012 to shareholders of record on March 15, 2012.

2011 Guidance

    2011
Revenue   $2.4 – 2.5 B
Gross Margin   50 – 51%
Operating Income   $500 – 560 M
Operating Margin   21 – 22%
EPS (Pro Forma)   $2.25 – 2.50
 

We expect revenues to decline in 2011 as the growth in the outdoor, fitness, marine and aviation segments, as well as auto OEM opportunities, is offset by ongoing declines in the PND market. We anticipate gross margins to be stable and operating margins to decline slightly from the strong margins generated in 2010. The operating margin declines will be primarily driven by ongoing investment in the business. These factors and an anticipated effective tax rate of 20% result in a forecasted 2011 earnings per share range of $2.25 - $2.50.

Non-GAAP Measures

Pro Forma net income (earnings) per share

Management believes that net income per share before the impact of foreign currency translation gain or loss and other one-time items is an important measure. The majority of the Company’s consolidated foreign currency gain or loss results from transactions involving the Euro, the British Pound Sterling and the Taiwan Dollar and from the exchange rate impact of the significant cash and marketable securities, receivables and payables held in U.S. dollars at the end of each reporting period by the Company’s various non U.S. subsidiaries. Such gain or loss is required under GAAP because the functional currency of the subsidiaries differs from the currency in which various assets and liabilities are held. However, there is minimal cash impact from such foreign currency gain or loss. Accordingly, earnings per share before the impact of foreign currency translation gain or loss allow an assessment of the Company’s operating performance before the non-cash impact of the position of the U.S. Dollar versus other currencies, which permits a consistent comparison of results between periods.

The following table contains a reconciliation of GAAP net income per share to pro forma net income per share.

Free cash flow

Management believes that free cash flow is an important financial measure because it represents the amount of cash provided by operations that is available for investing and defines it as operating cash flow less capital expenditures for property and equipment.

Return on invested capital (ROIC)

Management defines return on invested capital (ROIC) as net operating profit after taxes divided by operating invested capital. Management believes that ROIC provides greater visibility into how effectively Garmin deploys capital. ROIC is not a measure of financial performance under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP), and may not be defined and calculated by other companies in the same manner as Garmin does. ROIC should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income as an indicator of company performance.
