Cybex Announces Third Quarter Results


Cybex International, Inc. (NASDAQ: CYBI), a leading U.S. manufacturer of premium exercise equipment, today reported results for its third quarter ended September 29, 2012. Net sales for the third quarter of 2012 were $34.4 million, compared to $33.5 million for the corresponding 2011 period. The Company reported net income for the third quarter of 2012 of $1.1 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $0.3 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the corresponding 2011 period.

For the nine months ended September 29, 2012, net sales were $102.4 million, compared to $97.1 million for 2011. Net income for the nine months ended September 29, 2012 was $0.3 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $0.5 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, for 2011.

The above results include litigation charges of $1.4 million and $3.0 million for the quarter and nine months ended September 24, 2011, respectively, and litigation charges (reduction) of ($0.1 million) for the quarter ended September 29, 2012, related to the Barnhard product liability judgment. As previously reported, this litigation was settled during the first quarter of 2012.

Cybex Chairman and CEO John Aglialoro stated, “Q3 showed improvement compared to the previous quarter although the current economic environment continues to be challenging. While it is difficult to predict the short-term impact of economic conditions, we remain optimistic about sales prospects over the longer-term.”

Cybex President and COO Art Hicks stated, “We look forward to the Q4 introduction of our 525 cardio line which is targeted to better reach light commercial market segments. These products will feature lower price points, valuing ease of use and durability. Third quarter gross margins improved compared to Q2; and we expect this slow improvement trend to continue as we gain experience with our new 625 and 770 product lines. The Bravo strength series continues to be attractive to customers with functional training areas, which is a trend in the club market.”

As previously announced, the Company's board of directors has approved an Agreement and Plan of Merger pursuant to which all of the Company's outstanding common stock - other than shares owned by the Company's largest shareholder, UM Holdings, Ltd. (“UM”), and UM's subsidiaries and shareholders, which include John Aglialoro and Joan Carter - would be converted into $2.55 per share payable in cash, in a “going private” merger transaction. Mr. Aglialoro is Cybex's chairman and CEO and Ms. Carter is a director.

Consummation of the merger is subject to various conditions, including approval of the Merger Agreement by the affirmative vote of two-thirds of all outstanding shares and a majority of the shares held by the public shareholders, and consummation of financing. While there can be no assurance that the merger will be approved by the shareholders or consummated, the Company anticipates that it will seek approval of the merger at a special Shareholders Meeting to be held during the first quarter of 2013 and that the transaction will close shortly thereafter.

If the merger is approved and consummated, shares of the Company's common stock (other than shares held by UM, Mr. Aglialoro and Ms. Carter) will be deregistered under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), the Company will no longer be subject to the reporting requirements of the Exchange Act, and the shares will no longer trade on any market.

There is no investor conference call scheduled this quarter.
