Zebra Technologies Corporation announced 2013 second quarter diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $0.60, including exit, restructuring and acquisition costs that reduced earnings by $0.03 per share. Income from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2012 totaled $0.58 per share. Net sales for the quarter ended June 29, 2013, increased 2.5% to $253,160,000 from $247,077,000 for the second quarter of 2012.

Discussion and Analysis – Second Quarter

-Net sales growth of 2.5% included increased sales for the company in North America, Asia Pacific and the Europe, Middle East and Africa region. Organic growth of Zebra's label and wristband business was supplemented with sales from the July 2012 acquisition of LaserBand.

-Gross profit margin of 47.8%, versus 48.7% in 2012, reflects changes in product mix and selected pricing on certain large business opportunities with strategic customers in targeted markets.

-Operating expense growth of 4.6% includes $1,101,000 for exit and restructuring costs and $618,000 for acquisition costs. Other increases in operating expenses principally relate to accelerated product -development and sales and marketing activities supporting Zebra's entry to serve customers in the sports industry. Amortization increased over 2012 levels primarily due to intangible assets acquired as part of the July 2012 LaserBand acquisition.

-Other income includes a net $1,557,000 favorable litigation settlement, which is related to an investment loss that was recorded in prior years.

"In a quarter still challenged by uneven global business conditions, we won more business with strategic customers in targeted industries and delivered a broader range of products and solutions to a more diversified customer base," stated Anders Gustafsson, Zebra's chief executive officer.

"During the quarter, the cadence of our product development activities remained high, with the recent introductions of our ZXP Series 1 and updated ZXP Series 3 card printers, and our EM220 II wireless mobile receipt printer. We also accelerated investments to introduce innovative Internet of Things products and solutions to serve customers in sports and entertainment.

"Our recently launched Zebra Commerce brand will help us to more effectively deliver the broad suite of Zebra products and services to customers in the retail and field service industries. We look to the second half of 2013 with optimism about making further progress on our strategic initiatives and building greater value for our shareholders."

As of June 29, 2013, Zebra had $454,038,000 in cash and investments, and no long-term debt. Net inventories were $109,149,000, and net accounts receivable were $170,856,000.

For the first six months of 2013, net sales were $490,097,000, compared with $490,952,000 for the first half of 2012. Net income for the six months that ended June 29, 2013, was $54,108,000, or $1.05 per diluted share, compared with $60,817,000, or $1.17 per diluted share, for the same period in 2012.
