RICHARDSON ELECTRONICS, LTD.
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
1. DESCRIPTION OF THE COMPANY
Richardson Electronics, Ltd. (“we”, “us”, “the Company”, and “our”) is incorporated in the state of Delaware. We are a leading global provider of engineered solutions, power grid and microwave tubes and related components, and customized display solutions, serving customers in the alternative energy, aviation, broadcast, communications, industrial, marine, medical, military, scientific, and semiconductor markets. Our strategy is to provide specialized technical expertise and “engineered solutions” based on our core engineering and manufacturing capabilities. We provide solutions and add value through design-in support, systems integration, prototype design and manufacturing, testing, logistics, and aftermarket technical service and repair.
Our products include electron tubes and related components, microwave generators, subsystems used in semiconductor manufacturing, and visual technology solutions. These products are used to control, switch or amplify electrical power signals, or are used as display devices in a variety of industrial, commercial, medical, and communication applications.
On July 5, 2013, we acquired the assets of WVS-Technology ("WVS") for approximately $1.0 million. WVS, located in Meerbusch, Germany, develops and sells RF and microwave products, power grid tubes, vacuum capacitors, as well as industrial microwave equipment. This acquisition provides us with engineering and sales expertise to help expand our presence in the vacuum capacitor market.
We have two operating segments, which we define as follows:
Electron Device Group (“EDG”) provides engineered solutions and distributes electronic components to customers in alternative energy, aviation, broadcast, communications, industrial, marine, medical, military, scientific, and semiconductor markets. EDG focuses on various applications including broadcast transmission, CO2 laser cutting, diagnostic imaging, dielectric and induction heating, high energy transfer, high voltage switching, plasma, power conversion, radar, and radiation oncology. EDG also offers its customers technical services for both microwave and industrial equipment.
Canvys provides customized display solutions serving the corporate enterprise, financial, healthcare, industrial, and medical original equipment manufacturer (“OEM”) markets.
We currently have operations in the following major geographic regions:
• North America;
• Asia/Pacific;
• Europe; and
• Latin America.
2. BASIS OF PRESENTATION
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and notes required by GAAP for complete financial statements.
Our fiscal quarter ends on the Saturday nearest the end of the quarter-ending month. The first three months of fiscal 2014 and 2013 contained 13 weeks, respectively.
In the opinion of management, all adjustments, which are of a normal and recurring nature, necessary for a fair presentation of the results of interim periods have been made. All inter-company transactions and balances have been eliminated. The unaudited consolidated financial statements presented herein include the accounts of our wholly owned subsidiaries. Certain information and note disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. The results of our operations for the three months ended August 31, 2013, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending May 31, 2014.

6


The financial information contained in this report should be read in conjunction with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 1, 2013, that we filed on July 26, 2013.
3. UPDATES TO CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES
Inventories: Our worldwide inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market, generally using a weighted-average cost method. Our inventories include approximately $32.7 million of finished goods and $2.6 million of raw materials and work-in-progress as of August 31, 2013, as compared to approximately $31.6 million of finished goods and $2.4 million of raw materials and work-in-progress as of June 1, 2013.
At this time, we do not anticipate any material risks or uncertainties related to possible future inventory write-downs.
Revenue Recognition: Our product sales are recognized as revenue upon shipment, when title passes to the customer, when delivery has occurred or services have been rendered, and when collectability is reasonably assured. We also record estimated discounts and returns based on our historical experience. Our products are often manufactured to meet the specific design needs of our customers’ applications. Our engineers work closely with customers to ensure that our products will meet their needs. Our customers are under no obligation to compensate us for designing the products we sell.
In the limited cases where remaining performance obligations exist after delivery of the product, the obligation relative to the unit of accounting is inconsequential or perfunctory and is not essential to the functionality of the delivered product. This conclusion was reached based on the following facts: the timing of any remaining obligation is agreed upon with the customer, which in most cases, is performed immediately after the delivery of the product; the cost and time involved to complete the remaining obligation is insignificant in relation to the item sold, and the costs and time do not vary significantly; we have a demonstrated history of completing the remaining obligations timely; and finally, failure to complete the remaining obligation does not enable the customer to receive a full or partial refund of the product or service, and the timing of the payment for the product is not contingent upon completion of remaining performance obligations, if any.
Discontinued Operations: During fiscal year 2011, we completed the sale of the assets primarily used or held for use in, and certain liabilities of, our RF, Wireless and Power Division ("RFPD"), as well as certain other Company assets, including our information technology assets, to Arrow Elecrtonics, Inc. ("Arrow") in exchange for $238.8 million ("the Transaction"). In accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 205-20, Presentation of Financial Statements- Discontinued Operations (“ASC 205-20”), we reported the financial results of RFPD as a discontinued operation. Refer to Note 4 “Discontinued Operations” of our notes to our unaudited consolidated financial statements for additional discussion on the sale of RFPD.
Loss Contingencies: We accrue a liability for loss contingencies when it is probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount can be reasonably estimated. When only a range of possible loss can be established, the most probable amount in the range is accrued. If no amount within this range is a better estimate than any other amount within the range, the minimum amount in the range is accrued. If we determine that there is at least a reasonable possibility that a loss may have been incurred, we will include a disclosure describing the contingency.
Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets: Goodwill is initially recorded based on the premium paid for acquisitions and is subsequently tested for impairment. We test goodwill for impairment annually and whenever events or circumstances indicates an impairment may have occurred, such as a significant adverse change in the business climate, loss of key personnel or a decision to sell or dispose of a reporting unit. As of the three months ended August 31, 2013, our goodwill balance was $1.6 million and represents the premium we paid for Powerlink Specialist Electronics Support Limited ("Powerlink") of $1.3 million during our second quarter of fiscal 2012, adjusted for foreign currency translation; the premium we paid for D and C Import-Export, Inc. ("D and C") of $0.2 million during our second quarter of fiscal 2013; and the premium we paid for WVS of less than $0.1 million during our first quarter of fiscal 2014.

7


During the fourth quarter of each fiscal year, our goodwill balances are reviewed for impairment through the application of a fair-value based test, using the third quarter as the measurement date. In performing our annual review of goodwill balances for impairment, we estimate the fair value of each of our reporting units based primarily on projected future operating results, discounted cash flows, and other assumptions. Projected future operating results and cash flows used for valuation purposes may reflect considerable improvements relative to historical periods with respect to, among other things, revenue growth and operating margins. Although we believe our projected future operating results and cash flows and related estimates regarding fair values are based on reasonable assumptions, historically, projected operating results and cash flows have not always been achieved. In accordance with ASC 350 “Intangibles—Goodwill and Other”, if indicators of impairment are deemed to be present, we would perform an interim impairment test and any resulting impairment loss would be charged to expense in the period identified.
Intangible assets are initially recorded at their fair market values determined on quoted market prices in active markets, if available, or recognized valuation models. Intangible assets that have finite useful lives are amortized on a straight-line basis over their useful lives.
4. DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

In accordance with ASC 230, Statement of Cash Flows, entities are permitted but not required to separately disclose, either in the statement of cash flows or footnotes to the financial statements, cash flows pertaining to discontinued operations. Entities that do not present separate operating cash flow information related to discontinued operations must do so consistently for all periods presented, which may include periods long after the sale or liquidation of the operation. We did not have cash balances that were specific to RFPD and elected not to present separate cash flows from discontinued operations on our statement of cash flows.

5. ACQUISITIONS
On July 5, 2013, we acquired the assets of WVS for approximately $1.0 million. WVS, located in Meerbusch, Germany, develops and sells RF and microwave products, power grid tubes, vacuum capacitors, as well as industrial microwave equipment. This acquisition provides us with engineering and sales expertise to help expand our presence in the vacuum capacitor market.
The allocation of the preliminary purchase price recorded during the first quarter of fiscal 2014, included $0.7 million of inventory and $0.3 million of fixed assets. The purchase price is preliminary and subject to change based on the completion of a valuation of the respective assets. Pro forma financial information is not presented due to immateriality.

7. INVESTMENTS
As of August 31, 2013, we had approximately $43.6 million invested in time deposits and certificates of deposit (“CD”). Of this, $39.8 million mature in less than twelve months and $3.8 million mature in greater than twelve months. The fair value of these investments is equal to the face value of each time deposit and CD.
As of June 1, 2013, we had approximately $44.0 million invested in time deposits and CD’s. Of this, $39.0 million mature in less than twelve months and $5.0 million mature in greater than twelve months. The fair value of these investments is equal to the face value of each time deposit and CD.

10


We also have investments in equity securities, all of which are classified as available-for-sale and are carried at their fair value based on quoted market prices. Our investments, which are included in non-current assets, had a carrying amount of $0.5 million as of August 31, 2013, and as of June 1, 2013. Proceeds from the sale of securities were $0.1 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2014 and fiscal 2013. We reinvested proceeds from the sale of securities, and the cost of the equity securities sold was based on a specific identification method. Gross realized gains and losses on those sales were less than $0.1 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2014 and fiscal 2013. Net unrealized holding losses of less than $0.1 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2014 and fiscal 2013, have been included in accumulated other comprehensive income.
8. WARRANTIES
We offer warranties for the limited number of specific products we manufacture. We also provide extended warranties for some products we sell that lengthen the period of coverage specified in the manufacturer’s original warranty. Our warranty terms generally range from one to three years.
Warranty reserves are established for costs that are expected to be incurred after the sale and delivery of products under warranty. Warranty reserves are included in accrued liabilities on our consolidated balance sheets. The warranty reserves are determined based on known product failures, historical experience, and other available evidence. Warranty reserves were approximately $0.2 million as of August 31, 2013, and June 1, 2013.
9. LEASE OBLIGATIONS, OTHER COMMITMENTS, AND CONTINGENCIES
We lease certain warehouse and office facilities and office equipment under non-cancelable operating leases. Rent expense from continuing operations during the first three months of fiscal 2014 was $0.4 million compared to $0.4 million during the first three months of fiscal 2013. Under the terms of the Transaction, Arrow assumed many of our facility leases and we are sub-leasing space from Arrow. Our future lease commitments for minimum rentals, including common area maintenance charges and property taxes during the next five years have been adjusted to reflect the Transaction as follows (in thousands):

10. INCOME TAXES
The effective income tax rate from continuing operations during the first three months of fiscal 2014 was 18.5%, as compared to 22.2% during the first three months of fiscal 2013. The decrease in rate during the first three months of fiscal 2014, as compared to fiscal 2013, was due to a reduction in the amount of foreign earnings considered to be permanently reinvested and a reduction in forecasted cash available in foreign jurisdictions to distribute foreign earnings with respect to ASC 740-30, Income Taxes – Other Considerations or Special Areas. The effective rate as compared to the federal statutory rate of 34.0% resulted from our geographical distribution of income, apportionment of income to various states, in addition to our position with respect to ASC 740-30, Income Taxes – Other Considerations or Special Areas.
In the normal course of business, we are subject to examination by taxing authorities throughout the world. Generally, years prior to fiscal 2006 are closed for examination under the statute of limitation for U.S. federal, state or local, or non-U.S. tax jurisdictions. During fiscal 2013, we completed federal audits in the U.S. for fiscal 2009, 2010, and 2011. Our primary foreign tax jurisdictions are Germany and the Netherlands. We have tax years open in Germany and the Netherlands beginning in fiscal 2008.

11


As of August 31, 2013, approximately $42.4 million of cumulative positive earnings of some of our foreign subsidiaries are still considered permanently reinvested pursuant to ASC 740-30, Income Taxes-Other Considerations or Special Areas. Due to various tax attributes that are continuously changing, it is not practical to determine what, if any, tax liability might exist if such earnings were to be repatriated.
As of August 31, 2013, we did not have any worldwide liability for uncertain tax positions related to continuing operations as compared to $0.4 million as of September 1, 2012. Therefore, we have no recorded penalties and interest relating to uncertain tax positions in the income tax expense line item within the unaudited consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income.
It is not expected that there will be a change in the unrecognized tax benefits within the next 12 months.
11. CALCULATION OF EARNINGS PER SHARE
We have authorized 30,000,000 shares of common stock, 10,000,000 shares of Class B common stock, and 5,000,000 shares of preferred stock. The Class B common stock has 10 votes per share and has transferability restrictions; however, Class B common stock may be converted into common stock on a share-for-share basis at any time. With respect to dividends and distributions, shares of common stock and Class B common stock rank equally and have the same rights, except that Class B common stock cash dividends are limited to 90% of the amount of Class A common stock cash dividends.
In accordance with ASC 260-10, Earnings Per Share (“ASC 260”), our Class B common stock is considered a participating security requiring the use of the two-class method for the computation of basic and diluted earnings per share. The two-class computation method for each period reflects the cash dividends paid per share for each class of stock, plus the amount of allocated undistributed earnings per share computed using the participation percentage which reflects the dividend rights of each class of stock. Basic and diluted earnings per share were computed using the two-class method as prescribed in ASC 260. The shares of Class B common stock are considered to be participating convertible securities since the shares of Class B common stock are convertible on a share-for-share basis into shares of common stock and may participate in dividends with common stock according to a predetermined formula which is 90% of the amount of Class A common stock cash dividends.

We sell our products to customers in diversified industries and perform periodic credit evaluations of our customers’ financial condition. Terms are generally on open account, payable net 30 days in North America, and vary throughout Asia/Pacific, Europe, and Latin America. Estimates of credit losses are recorded in the financial statements based on monthly reviews of outstanding accounts. Other primarily includes net sales not allocated to a specific geographical region, unabsorbed value-add costs, and other unallocated expenses.
13. LITIGATION
We are involved in several pending judicial proceedings concerning matters arising in the ordinary course of business. While the outcome of litigation is subject to uncertainties, based on information available at the time the financial statements were issued, we determined disclosure of contingencies relating to any of our pending judicial proceedings was not necessary because there was less than a reasonable possibility that a material loss had been incurred.
During the first quarter of fiscal 2014, we received a settlement in the amount of $2.1 million related to an anti-trust class action lawsuit settlement. The settlement was recorded as proceeds from legal settlement within the Other Income section of our Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income.
14. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (“ASC 820”), defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.
ASC 820 establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value. These tiers include: Level 1, defined as observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets; Level 2, defined as inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable; and Level 3, defined as unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists; therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions.
As of August 31, 2013, we held investments that are required to be measured at fair value on a recurring basis. Our investments consist of time deposits and CDs, which face value is equal to fair value, and equity securities of publicly traded companies for which market prices are readily available.

Net sales for EDG decreased 0.6% to $25.5 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2014, from $25.6 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2013.  Net sales of tubes decreased to $19.3 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2014, as compared to $20.4 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2013, due primarily to declines in the industrial heating, broadcast and aviation markets but offset by growth in the laser and marine markets. Net sales of continuous wave magnetrons and related assemblies sold primarily into the semiconductor wafer fabrication market stabilized at $2.5 million during the first quarters of fiscal 2014 and 2013. Gross margin as a percentage of net sales decreased slightly to 30.8% during the first quarter of fiscal 2014, as compared to 31.2% during the first quarter of fiscal 2013 primarily due to shifts in product and geographic mix. 
Canvys        
Canvys net sales decreased 12.4% to $8.8 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2014, from $10.0 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2013.  Sales were down in our North America Healthcare market driven by the uncertainty surrounding health care reform and a difficult capital market for hospitals while sales in our North America OEM market were down due to delays in new program startups.  Gross margin as a percentage of net sales increased to 26.6% during the first quarter of fiscal 2014 as compared to 26.4% during the first quarter of fiscal 2013, due to the higher margin business in Europe as well as currency fluctuations.       
Selling, General, and Administrative Expenses
Selling, general, and administrative expenses (“SG&A”) remained flat at $10.1 during the first quarter of fiscal 2014 and fiscal 2013. This includes SG&A with respect to EDG, Canvys, and our support functions. SG&A as a percentage of sales from continuing operations, increased to 29.4% during the first quarter of fiscal 2014 from 28.5% during the first quarter of fiscal 2013.
Other (Income) Expense
Other (income) expense was income of $2.3 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to income of $0.4 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2013. Other income (expense) during the first quarter of fiscal 2014 included an anti-trust class action lawsuit settlement of $2.1 million and investment income of $0.3 million, partially offset by foreign exchange loss of $0.1 million. Our foreign exchange gains and losses are primarily due to the translation of U.S. dollars held in non-U.S. entities. We currently do not utilize derivative instruments to manage our exposure to foreign currency.
Income Tax Provision
The effective income tax rate from continuing operations during the first three months of fiscal 2014 was 18.5%, as compared to 22.2% during the first three months of fiscal 2013. The decrease in rate during the first three months of fiscal 2014, as compared to fiscal 2013, was due to a reduction in the amount of foreign earnings considered to be permanently reinvested and a reduction in forecasted cash available in foreign jurisdictions to

19


distribute foreign earnings with respect to ASC 740-30, Income Taxes – Other Considerations or Special Areas. The effective rate as compared to the federal statutory rate of 34.0% resulted from our geographical distribution of income, apportionment of income to various states, in addition to our position with respect to ASC 740-30, Income Taxes – Other Considerations or Special Areas.
In the normal course of business, we are subject to examination by taxing authorities throughout the world. Generally, years prior to fiscal 2006 are closed for examination under the statute of limitation for U.S. federal, state or local, or non-U.S. tax jurisdictions. During fiscal 2013, we completed federal audits in the U.S. for fiscal 2009, 2010, and 2011. Our primary foreign tax jurisdictions are Germany and the Netherlands. We have tax years open in Germany and the Netherlands beginning in fiscal 2008.
As of August 31, 2013, approximately $42.4 million of cumulative positive earnings of some of our foreign subsidiaries are still considered permanently reinvested pursuant to ASC 740-30, Income Taxes-Other Considerations or Special Areas. Due to various tax attributes that are continuously changing, it is not practical to determine what, if any, tax liability might exist if such earnings were to be repatriated.
As of August 31, 2013, we did not have any worldwide liability for uncertain tax positions related to continuing operations as compared to $0.4 million as of September 1, 2012. Therefore, we have no recorded penalties and interest relating to uncertain tax positions in the income tax expense line item within the unaudited consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income.
It is not expected that there will be a change in the unrecognized tax benefits within the next 12 months.

In accordance with ASC 230, Statement of Cash Flows, entities are permitted but not required to separately disclose, either in the statement of cash flows or footnotes to the financial statements, cash flows pertaining to discontinued operations. Entities that do not present separate operating cash flow information related to discontinued operations must do so consistently for all periods presented, which may include periods long after the sale or liquidation of the operation. We did not have cash balances that were specific to RFPD and elected not to present separate cash flows from discontinued operations on our statement of cash flows.
Net Income and Per share Data
Net income during the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $2.0 million, or $0.14 per diluted common share and $0.13 per Class B diluted common share, as compared to net income of $0.6 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2013, or $0.04 per diluted common share and $0.04 per Class B diluted common share.
LIQUIDITY, FINANCIAL POSITION, AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
Our growth and cash needs have been primarily financed through income from operations. Cash and cash equivalents for the first quarter ended August 31, 2013, were $92.5 million. In addition, CDs and time deposits classified as short-term investments were $39.8 million and long-term investments were $4.2 million, including equity securities of $0.5 million. Cash and investments at August 31, 2013, consisted of $77.8 million in North America, $17.8 million in Europe, $0.7 million in Latin America, and $40.2 million in Asia/Pacific. At June 1, 2013, cash and cash equivalents were $102.0 million. In addition, CDs and time deposits classified as short-term investments were $39.0 million and long-term investments were $5.4 million, including equity securities of $0.4 million. Cash and investments at June 1, 2013, consisted of $82.1 million in North America, $22.1 million in Europe, $1.2 million in Latin America, and $41.0 million in Asia/Pacific.
Cash Flows from Discontinued Operations
In accordance with ASC 230, Statement of Cash Flows, entities are permitted but not required to separately disclose, either in the statement of cash flows or footnotes to the financial statements, cash flows pertaining to discontinued operations. Entities that do not present separate operating cash flow information related to discontinued operations must do so consistently for all periods presented, which may include periods long after the sale or liquidation of the operation.
We believe we will continue to have sufficient liquidity to fund our future growth strategies for our business in the foreseeable future.
Cash Flows from Operating Activities
The cash flow from operating activities primarily resulted from our net income, adjusted for non-cash items, and changes in our operating assets and liabilities.
Operating activities, which include our discontinued operations, used $1.2 million of cash during the first quarter of fiscal 2014. We had net income of $2.0 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2014, which included non-cash stock-based compensation expense of $0.1 million associated with the issuance of stock option awards and depreciation and amortization expense of $0.2 million associated with our property and equipment as well as amortization of our intangible assets. Changes in our operating assets and liabilities, net of effects of acquired businesses, used $3.5 million of cash during the first quarter of fiscal 2014, due primarily to the increase in our inventory of $0.5 million, the decrease in our accounts payable of $2.5 million, the increase in our accounts receivable of $1.2 million, partially offset by a decrease to our prepaid expenses of $0.2 million. The increase in our inventory was due to a increase in purchases related to specific projects within our Canvys business. The decrease in our accounts payable relates primarily to the timing of some of our major vendors. The increase in our receivables of $1.2 million was due primarily to a slight increase in our day sales outstanding caused primarily by a shift in customer mix by geography. The decrease in prepaid expenses of $0.2 million was due primarily to a decrease in VAT prepayments.
Operating activities, which include our discontinued operations, used $3.3 million of cash during the first three months of fiscal 2013.  We had net income of $0.6 million in the first three months of fiscal 2013, which included non-cash stock-based compensation expense of $0.1 million associated with the issuance of stock option awards and depreciation and amortization expense of $0.3 million associated with our investments in property and

21


equipment as well as amortization of our intangible assets.  Changes in our operating assets and liabilities, net of effects of acquired businesses, used $4.4 million of cash during the first three months of fiscal 2013, due primarily to decreases in our operating liabilities, including accounts payable and accrued liabilities, and increases in our operating assets including prepaid expenses,  inventories, and receivables.  The decrease in accounts payable of $1.4 million was due primarily to the timing of vendor payments.  The decrease in accrued liabilities of $1.0 million was due primarily to a reduction in employee related compensation accruals.  The increase in prepaid expenses of $0.6 million was due primarily to $0.4 million of cash used to renew our liability insurance coverage and $0.2 million of cash used for computer support services.  The increase in inventories of $0.6 million, was due primarily to increased purchasing to support expected future sales growth.  The increase in receivables of $0.6 million, excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange of $0.2 million, was due primarily to the timing of customer payments.
Cash Flows from Investing Activities
The cash flow from investing activities has consisted primarily of purchases and maturities of investments and capital expenditures.    
Cash used in investing activities of $1.0 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2014, included proceeds from the maturities of investments of $40.5 million, offset by the purchase of investments of $40.1 million, $1.0 million for the acquisition of WVS, and $0.4 million in capital expenditures.    
Cash provided by investing activities of $5.9 million during the first three months of fiscal 2013, included proceeds from maturities of investments of $57.7 million, offset by purchases of investments of $51.7 million and $0.1 million in capital expenditures.
Our purchases and proceeds from investments consist of time deposits and CDs. Purchasing of future investments may vary from period to period due to interest and foreign currency exchange rates.
Cash Flows from Financing Activities    
The cash flow from financing activities primarily consists of repurchases of common stock and cash dividends paid.
Cash used in financing activities of $7.5 million during the first three months of fiscal 2014, resulted from $6.7 million of cash used to repurchase common stock under our share repurchase authorization and $0.9 million of cash used to pay dividends, offset by $0.1 million of proceeds from the issuance of common stock.
Cash used in financing activities of $5.5 million during the first three months of fiscal 2013, resulted from $5.6 million of cash used to repurchase common stock under our share repurchase authorization, offset by less than $0.1 million of proceeds from the issuance of common stock.
Dividend payments for the first three months of fiscal 2014 were approximately $0.9 million. All future payments of dividends are at the discretion of the Board of Directors. Dividend payments will depend on earnings, capital requirements, operating conditions, and such other factors that the Board may deem relevant.
We believe that the existing sources of liquidity, including current cash, will provide sufficient resources to meet known capital requirements and working capital needs for the fiscal year ending May 31, 2014.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
Risk Management and Market Sensitive Financial Instruments
We are exposed to many different market risks with the various industries we serve. The primary financial risk we are exposed to is foreign currency exchange, as certain operations, assets, and liabilities of ours are denominated in foreign currencies. We manage these risks through normal operating and financing activities.
The interpretation and analysis of these disclosures should not be considered in isolation since such variances in exchange rates would likely influence other economic factors. Such factors, which are not readily quantifiable, would likely also affect our operations. Additional disclosure regarding various market risks are set forth in Part I, Item 1A, “Risk Factors” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 1, 2013, filed July 26, 2013.
ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
(a)
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
Management of the Company, with the participation of the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)) as of August 31, 2013.
Disclosure controls and procedures are intended to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in the Company’s Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified by the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Based on this evaluation, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of the end of the period covered by this report.
(b)
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
There were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation required by paragraph (d) of Exchange Act Rules 13a-15 or 15d-15 that occurred during the first quarter of fiscal 2014 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

23


PART II. OTHER INFORMATION
ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
From time to time we or our subsidiaries are involved in legal actions that arise in the ordinary course of our business. While the outcome of these matters cannot be predicted with certainty, we do not believe that the outcome of any current claims, including the above mentioned legal matters, will have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.
ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS
There have been no material changes to the risk factors previously disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 1, 2013, filed July 26, 2013.

RICHARDSON ELECTRONICS REPORTS FIRST QUARTER FISCAL 2014 RESULTS AND DECLARES QUARTERLY CASH DIVIDEND

LaFox, IL, October 9, 2013: Richardson Electronics, Ltd. (NASDAQ: RELL) today reported sales and earnings for its first quarter ended August 31, 2013. The Company also announced that its Board of Directors declared a $0.06 per share quarterly cash dividend.
Net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 were $34.3 million, a 3.9% decrease compared to net sales of $35.7 million in the prior year. The sales decline primarily reflects a decline in demand for picture archive and communication systems (PAC) monitors as well as the conclusion of a significant North American based industrial Original Equipment Manufacturers ("OEM") monitor program. Gross margin declined to $10.2 million, or 29.8% of net sales during the first quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to $10.6 million, or 29.9% of net sales during fiscal 2013. Operating expenses remained flat for the first quarters of fiscal 2013 and 2014. Operating income for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $0.1 million, compared to operating income for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 of $0.5 million.
Income from continuing operations for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $2.0 million, or $0.14 per diluted common share, compared to income from continuing operations of $0.7 million, or $0.05 per diluted common share during the first quarter of last year.
“We were pleased to see our EDG business stabilize during the first quarter, and are strategically investing in niche areas of EDG where we have identified potential growth opportunities. EDG continues to strengthen its service capabilities which will drive incremental end user sales of both laser and industrial tubes. At the same time, sales in the healthcare market of Canvys continue to be challenged by uncertainty regarding healthcare reform. However, we remain optimistic that new display opportunities will arise for Canvys once healthcare reform is finalized and with our continued focus on custom solutions for OEMs,” said Edward J. Richardson, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President.

“We believe our second quarter sales should be in the range of $35 to $37 million. We remain focused on building our business to achieve sustainable growth over the long term,” said Mr. Richardson.
