MALVERN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYS: VSH) , one of the world's largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors and passive components, today announced its results for the fiscal quarter ended March 30, 2013.

Revenues for the fiscal quarter ended March 30, 2013 were $554.3 million, compared to $538.5 million for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2012. The net earnings attributable to Vishay stockholders for the fiscal quarter ended March 30, 2013 were $28.9 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, compared to $33.8 million, or $0.21 per diluted share for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2012.

Net earnings attributable to Vishay stockholders for the fiscal quarter ended March 30, 2013 include one-time tax benefits due to the retroactive enactment of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, signed into law on January 2, 2013. Items affecting comparability for the periods presented are summarized on the attached reconciliation schedule. Adjusted net earnings per diluted share, which exclude these items, were $0.18 and $0.21 for the fiscal quarters ended March 30, 2013 and March 31, 2012, respectively.

Commenting on the results for the first quarter 2013, Dr. Gerald Paul, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "In the first quarter Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. benefited from better economic conditions as well as from improved efficiencies and some temporary measures to save fixed costs. In the course of the quarter Vishay experienced a broad based recovery with particular strength of the automotive and industrial end markets. End demand at distribution is recovering: point of sale, the sales of Vishay products by its distributors to end customers, increased 8% quarter over quarter while inventories of Vishay products at its distributors decreased by 7%."

Dr. Gerald Paul continued, "While controlling our fixed costs we continue to pursue our Growth Plan by expanding manufacturing capacities in strategic product lines, by increasing our R&D and design-in efforts, by expanding our sales presence in Asia, and by acquiring specialty businesses."

Commenting on the recent signing of the definitive purchase agreement to acquire MCB Industrie, S.A., a manufacturer of specialty resistors for professional market segments, Marc Zandman, Vishay's Executive Chairman and Chief Business Development Officer, stated, "The planned acquisition of MCB Industrie S.A. will substantially expand and strengthen our resistors portfolio, both in motion sensors for avionics, military, and space applications and in power resistors for energy distribution, traction, and industrial market sectors. It will significantly enhance the existing resistors business of our successful Vishay Sfernice division. Consistent with the goals of our Growth Plan, it will supplement intensified internal growth and increase market share."

Commenting on the outlook for the second quarter 2013 Dr. Paul stated, "Based on current order trends, we guide for revenues of $570 to $610 million at similar gross margin percent and slightly improved operating margin percent compared to the first quarter of 2013."

This press release includes certain financial measures which are not recognized in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), including adjusted net earnings and adjusted earnings per share, 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 and should not be viewed as an alternative to GAAP measures of performance. Non-GAAP measures such as adjusted net earnings and adjusted earnings per share 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 adjusted net earnings and adjusted net earnings per diluted share these measures are meaningful to investors because they provide insight with respect to intrinsic operating results of the Company. Reconciling items to arrive at adjusted net earnings represent significant charges or credits that are important to an understanding to the Company's intrinsic operations. These reconciling items are indicated on the accompanying reconciliation schedule 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.

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; 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.
