Executive Overview from Cliff Pemble, President and Chief Executive Officer:

“During the third quarter, we continued our strong performance achieving double-digit revenue growth in four of our five segments and double-digit growth of consolidated operating income,” said Cliff Pemble, president and chief executive officer of Garmin Ltd. “We are well positioned for the remainder of 2018 with a solid lineup of products and are raising our EPS guidance to reflect our strong performance.”

Marine:

The marine segment posted robust revenue growth of 28% driven by organic growth across multiple product categories and our recent acquisitions. Gross and operating margins were 59% and 14%, respectively. For the fourth consecutive year Garmin was recognized as the Manufacturer of the Year by the National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA), winning a total of six awards including the prestigious NMEA Technology Award. We recently announced the 2019 line up of marine electronics including the GPSMAP® 8600 series, the first product line compatible with the combined Garmin and Navionics chart content. We remain focused on innovations and achieving market share gains within the inland fishing category.

Aviation:

The aviation segment posted strong revenue growth of 17%. Gross and operating margins increased to 76% and 35%, respectively, resulting in operating income growth of 49%. Growth in the quarter was broad based across multiple product categories. Gulfstream recently selected our ADS-B In solution for their new production and aftermarket G280 business jets. During the quarter, we announced the acquisition of FltPlan.com, a leading electronics flight planning and service provider, and have begun integration into Garmin Connected Aviation Services such as Garmin PilotTM. We recently announced the G1000 NXi upgrade for the Piper M500, expanding the addressable market for NXi retrofits. We continue to invest in upcoming certifications with our OEM partners and ongoing aftermarket opportunities.

Fitness:

The fitness segment posted strong revenue growth of 14% primarily driven by strength in wearables. Gross and operating margins were 54% and 20%, respectively, resulting in operating income growth of 12%. During the third quarter, we launched the vívosmart® 4, a smart activity tracker that introduces a wrist-based pulse ox sensor in a slim design, new advanced sleep monitoring and the innovative Body Battery, which monitors individual energy levels. We also announced new vívofit® jr. 2 interactive adventures and bands featuring Disney Princess and Marvel’s Spider-Man. We continue to pursue opportunities for wearables and cycling within the fitness segment.

Outdoor:

During the third quarter of 2018, the outdoor segment grew 13% driven primarily by wearable devices. Gross margin improved year-over-year to 65%, while operating margin improved to 38% resulting in a 16% increase in operating income. We recently announced the integration of Spotify on the fēnix® 5 Plus series, giving customers the ability to listen to offline music playlists from their wrist. We also recently introduced Instinct®, a GPS smartwatch that is rugged and reliable. Looking forward, we remain focused on opportunities in wearables and other product categories within the outdoor segment.

Auto:

Revenue from the auto segment declined 16% in the third quarter of 2018, primarily due to the ongoing PND market contraction. Gross and operating margins were 43% and 9%, respectively. We recently announced the selection of our integrated camera solution by the Chinese auto company, Geely Auto Group. Looking forward, we are focused on disciplined execution to bring desired innovation to the market while managing profitability within the segment.

Additional Financial Information:

Total operating expenses in the quarter were $285 million, an 8% increase from the prior year. Research and development increased 7% driven by the incremental costs associated with acquisitions, investments in the outdoor and fitness segments for the development of advanced wearable products and continued innovation in the aviation segment. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 13% driven primarily by personnel related expenses and incremental costs associated with acquisitions. Advertising expenses decreased 4% year-over-year.

The effective tax rate in the third quarter of 2018 was 8.5% compared to the effective tax rate of 20.5% in the prior year quarter. The decrease in the current quarter effective tax rate is primarily due to the benefits from U.S. tax reform and increased benefit from U.S. research and development tax credits.

In the third quarter of 2018, we generated $264 million of net cash provided by operating activities and $234 million of free cash flow (see attached table for reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure). We continued to return cash to shareholders with our quarterly dividend of approximately $100 million. We ended the quarter with cash and marketable securities of approximately $2.5 billion.

2018 Guidance:

We have increased our 2018 guidance to reflect the strong third quarter performance. We anticipate our fourth quarter revenue to be relatively flat year-over-year with total full year revenue of approximately $3.3 billion and a gross margin of 58.5%. We are raising our full year operating margin to approximately 22.0% and lowering our full year pro forma effective tax rate to about 16.0% resulting in a pro forma EPS of approximately $3.45.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, this release includes the following measures defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission as non-GAAP financial measures: pro forma net income (earnings) per share, forward-looking pro forma earnings per share, pro forma effective tax rate, forward-looking pro forma effective tax rate and free cash flow. These non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies, limiting the usefulness of the measures for comparison with other companies. Management believes providing investors with an operating view consistent with how it manages the Company provides enhanced transparency into the operating results of the Company, as described in more detail by category below.

The tables below provide reconciliations between the GAAP and non-GAAP measures.

Pro forma effective tax rate

The Company’s income tax expense is periodically impacted by discrete tax items that are not reflective of income tax expense incurred as a result of current period earnings. Therefore, management believes disclosure of the effective tax rate and income tax provision before the effect of certain discrete tax items are important measures to permit investors' consistent comparison between periods. In the first three quarters of 2018, there were no such discrete tax items identified.

(1) Effective tax rate is calculated by taking the income tax provision divided by income before taxes, as presented on the face of the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.
 
(2) In first quarter 2017, a $169 million tax benefit was recognized resulting primarily from the revaluation of certain Switzerland deferred tax assets. The revaluation is due to the Company's election in the first quarter of 2017 to align certain Switzerland corporate tax positions with international tax initiatives. As this revaluation is not reflective of income tax expense incurred related to the current period earnings, it has been identified as a pro forma discrete tax item.
 
(3) Following adoption in fiscal 2017 of Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-09, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting (“ASU 2016-09”), the Company may periodically incur tax expense resulting from stock options and stock appreciation rights (SARs) expiring unexercised. New grants of stock options and SARs no longer comprise a significant component of the Company’s compensation arrangements. As the tax expense from expired awards is not related to current period earnings or compensation activities, it has been identified as a pro forma adjustment.
 

The net release of uncertain tax position reserves, amounting to approximately $27.7 million and $17.2 million in the 39-weeks ended September 29, 2018 and September 30, 2017, respectively, have not been included as pro forma adjustments in the above presentation of pro forma income tax provision as related items tend to be more recurring in nature or such amounts are individually not significant.

Pro forma net income (earnings) per share

Management believes that net income (earnings) per share before the impact of foreign currency gains or losses and certain discrete income tax items, as discussed above, is an important measure in order to permit a consistent comparison of the Company’s performance between periods.

(1) The majority of the Company’s consolidated foreign currency gains and losses are driven by movements in the Taiwan Dollar, Euro, and British Pound Sterling in relation to the U.S. Dollar and the related exchange rate impact on the significant cash, receivables, and payables held in a currency other than the functional currency at one of the Company’s subsidiaries. However, there is minimal cash impact from such foreign currency losses.
 
(2) The tax effect of foreign currency gains and losses was calculated using the effective tax rate of 8.5% and 14.8% for the quarter and year-to-date ended September 29, 2018, respectively, and a pro forma effective tax rate of 20.5% and 21.0% for the quarter and year-to-date ended September 30, 2017, respectively.
 
(3) The discrete tax items are discussed in the pro forma effective tax rate section above.
 

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 less capital expenditures for property and equipment. Management believes that excluding purchases of property and equipment provides a better understanding of the underlying trends in the Company’s operating performance and allows more accurate comparisons of the Company’s operating results to historical performance. This metric may also be useful to investors, but should not be considered in isolation as it is not a measure of cash flow available for discretionary expenditures. The most comparable GAAP measure is cash provided by operating activities.

Forward-looking pro forma tax rate

Forward-looking pro forma tax rate and pro forma earnings per share are calculated before the effect of certain discrete tax items. Management believes certain discrete tax items may not be reflective of income tax expense incurred as a result of current period earnings. Therefore, in order to permit consistent comparison between periods, the tax rate and earnings per share before the effect of such discrete tax items are important measures. At this time management is unable to determine whether or not significant discrete tax items will be identified in fiscal 2018.

Forward-looking pro forma earnings per share (EPS)

In addition to the discrete tax items discussed in the forward-looking pro forma effective tax rate section above, our forward looking 2018 pro forma EPS excludes foreign currency exchange gains and losses. The estimated impact of such foreign currency gains and losses cannot be reasonably estimated on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability and low visibility with respect to non-operating foreign currency exchange gains and losses and the related tax effects of such gains and losses. The impact of such foreign currency gains and losses, net of tax effects, was $0.01 for the 39-weeks ended September 29, 2018.
