- 2013 first quarter earnings per share of $0.47, compared to $0.37 in 2012
- 2013 first quarter non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.33, compared to $0.18 in 2012
- Callaway increases estimated first half 2013 non-GAAP earnings per share guidance from $0.33 to $0.44; lowers estimated first half sales guidance from $555 million to $540 million
- Callaway reiterates full year 2013 earnings guidance, estimating non-GAAP net income at breakeven and non-GAAP loss per share of $0.04; lowers full year 2013 estimated sales guidance from $850 million to $830 million.
Callaway Golf Company announced its first quarter 2013 financial results, including 12% sales growth on a constant currency basis on its current business, which excludes the brands and businesses that in 2012 were sold or transitioned to a third party model as part of its 2012 turnaround plan. On a GAAP basis, the Company's sales grew 1% for the first quarter of 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012.
For the first quarter of 2013, the Company reported the following non-GAAP results, as compared to the same period in 2012:
The Company's net sales for the first quarter of 2013 increased to $288 million, as compared to $285 million for the same period in 2012. The strength of the Company's 2013 product line allowed the Company to more than offset the negative impact of foreign currency and the 2012 sale of the Top-Flite and Ben Hogan brands and the transition in 2012 to a third party model for other products, including U.S. apparel and footwear.
As compared to 2012, the Company's first quarter 2013 net sales were adversely affected by $8 million due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates and by $20 million due to the sold or transitioned brands and products. For the first quarter of 2013, net sales relating to the Company's current business, which excludes these sold or transitioned brands and products, increased by 8% and on a constant currency basis increased by 12%.
In addition to the increase in sales, improvements in gross margins and operating expenses contributed to a 27% increase in GAAP fully diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2013 compared to the same period in 2012. The Company's GAAP earnings results for both periods benefited from the effects of the Company's deferred tax valuation allowance, which significantly reduced the Company's income tax provision.
The Company's GAAP fully diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2013 was also adversely affected by approximately $0.02 per share related to charges incurred in connection with the Company's 2012 cost-reduction initiatives. The Company's GAAP fully diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2012 was positively affected by approximately $0.05 per share related to a gain on the sale of the Top-Flite and Ben Hogan brands. On a non-GAAP basis, which excludes these charges/gains and uses an assumed tax rate of 38.5%, the Company's fully diluted earnings per share increased to $0.33 for the first quarter of 2013 as compared to $0.18 for the first quarter of 2012.
