Note: In accordance with GAAP, the Company is deferring significant revenue and the related costs associated with high margin sales of certain products bundled with content and services over their economic lives. In the fourth quarter of 2011, the Company deferred, net of amortization of previous deferrals, $72 million of revenue, $15 million of costs, and approximately $0.26 of diluted EPS, net of taxes, into future years. For the full year, the Company deferred, net of amortization of previous deferrals, $179 million of revenue, $36 million of costs, and approximately $0.66 of diluted EPS, net of taxes, into future years. A table outlining the impact of this net deferral in both 2011 and 2010 is included for reference. Results have not been adjusted unless specifically stated as such.

Business highlights:

-- Achieved full year revenue growth in outdoor, fitness, marine and aviation offsetting declines in auto/mobile. These growth segments generated 71% of the total operating income in 2011.

-- Sold almost 16 million units in 2011 with unit growth in outdoor, fitness, marine and automotive OEM nearly offsetting declines in personal navigation devices (PND).

-- Continued to be the world-wide PND market share leader with market share gains globally.

-- Received the J.D. Power and Associates award for Highest Customer Satisfaction with Factory-Installed Navigation in our first year of eligibility for the 2011 Dodge Charger. The Garmin solution for the Chrysler 300 was ranked third.

-- Announced the Approach(R) G6 golf handheld to further enhance our growing position in the golf market. It joins the successful Approach S1, which gained market share in the holiday selling season.

-- Introduced the nuvi(R) 3500 series in the Prestige line. These 5-inch devices are ultra-thin and loaded with the most premium capabilities including: high resolution color display with capacitive touch, digital 3D traffic and photoReal junction view.

-- Supported the successful first flight of the Cessna Citation Ten with the Garmin G5000 cockpit.

Executive overview from Dr. Min Kao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer:

"Entering 2011, we forecasted $2.5 billion of revenue and $2.50 of EPS. I am pleased to say that we far exceeded those targets through a combination of solid execution by our associates and successful acquisitions that further diversify our company in both products and geographies," said Dr. Min Kao, chairman and chief executive officer of Garmin Ltd. "The business generated free cash flow of $784 million. We returned $311 million to shareholders through our quarterly dividend and used an additional $54 million to fund acquisitions. We will continue to use both of these strategies to grow long-term shareholder value.

The automotive/mobile segment revenues increased 4% on a year-over-year basis in the fourth quarter as PND unit declines were offset by improved pricing related to mix and growth in mobile applications and auto OEM. The improvement in our overall average selling price (ASP) for the fourth quarter is due to an increase in the popularity of our bundled product offerings, offset by decreases in the ASP of comparable models from the prior year. While the PND market size continued to decline in 2011, we emerge from the year with increased market share, stabilizing ASPs and strong profitability. In 2012, we will continue to focus on gaining market share and improved profitability. We are extremely excited that Garmin was recognized by J.D. Power and Associates for Highest Customer Satisfaction with Factory-Installed Navigation on the 2011 Dodge Charger. This is validation for our ongoing investment and serves as a selling point as we work with future OEM partners on next-generation solutions.

The outdoor segment posted revenue growth of 35% in the fourth quarter as supply constraints that affected results in the third quarter were resolved and our broad portfolio of products saw strong holiday demand. Some of our best sellers included our Approach S1, the Montana(TM) series, the eTrex(R) series and the Astro(R) series. Each of these product lines serves a diverse niche market which has allowed us to continue to grow. We believe this will be true again in 2012 as we fully integrate Tri-Tronics dog training capabilities and grow share in the golf market with further innovation.

The fitness segment posted revenue growth of 17% in the quarter and full-year growth of 24%. Growth in the segment fell slightly short of our expectations as we were unable to ship the Forerunner(R) 910XT in time for the holiday season. The good news is that we are now filling back orders and customer feedback on the product has been extremely positive. We expect 2012 to be another exciting year for the segment as we launch the Vector(TM) power meter and other unique offerings that we believe will continue to drive our growth in this segment.

Aviation segment revenues were up only slightly in the fourth quarter as sales were reduced in the 2011 quarter due to OEM program contributions. For the full year, revenues improved by 9% and the segment contributed $72 million of operating income. In light of the ongoing economic conditions affecting the general aviation industry, we are pleased with our revenue growth and plan to build on it in 2012. Our focus will be expanding our presence in the Part 25 business jet market, while also winning new helicopter business with the recently introduced G5000H. The G5000H was already named as the avionics for the upcoming Bell Relentless helicopter.

The marine segment posted fourth quarter and full year revenue growth of 16% and 12%, respectively, exceeding our expectations. The marine industry, like aviation, has been slow to recover but Garmin has continually gained market share, allowing us to post our strongest ever revenues in 2011. We have invested heavily in our marine segment this year with increased research and development and the build-out of additional support infrastructure to serve our growing base of OEM customers. This strategy is working, as we announced the addition of Teleflex and Viking as OEM partners at the recent Miami Boat Show. We expect growth to continue in 2012 as we deliver further innovation and utility to the recreational marine market."

Financial overview from Kevin Rauckman, Chief Financial Officer:

"Our fourth quarter and full year revenue growth illustrate the strength of our diversified business model, while our research and development investment highlights our commitment to investing in markets that will provide growth opportunities for many years to come," said Kevin Rauckman, Chief Financial Officer of Garmin Ltd. "Through strong execution by our associates around the globe, we delivered revenue, operating income and EPS growth in the quarter.

Gross margin for the overall business in the fourth quarter was 48% which represents an improvement from the fourth quarter 2010 level of 45%. The automotive/mobile segment gross margin improved to 38%. The improvement is partially related to an increased average selling price as consumers select premium functionality and content. Gross margin for the aviation segment was negatively impacted by OEM program contributions.

Operating margin for the overall business was 22% in the current quarter as improved gross margins were partially offset by higher operating expenses. Operating margin, excluding the impact of deferred revenues and costs, was 26%. Total operating expenses were up $39 million on a year-over-year basis. Advertising expenses increased by $12 million as we conducted a television advertising campaign in 2011 that boosted market share. Selling, general and administrative and research and development expenses increased $14 million and $13 million, respectively, due primarily to increased headcount associated with recent acquisitions and an additional week in our fourth quarter 2011.

We generated $213 million of free cash flow in the fourth quarter of 2011 and $784 million for the full year. Our strong cash generation will continue to fund acquisitions throughout 2012 and significant returns to our shareholders through our quarterly dividend, which we propose to increase to $0.45 per quarter beginning in June 2012. The resulting cash and marketable securities balance was almost $2.5 billion at the end of the year."

Dividend Recommendation

The Board intends to recommend to the shareholders for approval at the annual meeting to be held on June 1, 2012 a cash dividend in the amount of $1.80 per share (subject to possible adjustment based on the total amount of the dividend in Swiss Francs as approved at the annual meeting) payable in four installments as follows:

Dividend Date          Record Date        $'s per share
        ------------------    ------------------    -------------
        June 29, 2012         June 15, 2012                 $0.45
        September 28, 2012    September 14, 2012            $0.45
        December 31, 2012     December 14, 2012             $0.45
        March 29, 2013        March 15, 2013                $0.45
        


In addition, we have one additional payment of $0.40 due on March 30, 2012 to shareholders of record on March 15, 2012.

2012 Guidance

2012 Guidance
                             -------------
        Revenue               $2.7 - $2.8B
        ----------------     -------------
        Gross Margin              49 - 50%
        ----------------     -------------
        Operating Income        $520 - 540
        ----------------     -------------
        Operating Margin          19 - 20%
        ----------------     -------------
        EPS (Pro Forma)      $2.45 - $2.60
        ----------------     -------------
        


We expect 2012 revenue of $2.7 - $2.8 billion as growth in the outdoor, fitness, marine and aviation segments offset ongoing declines in the PND market. We anticipate gross margins to be stable to slightly improving at 49-50% and operating margins of 19-20%, resulting in a forecasted 2012 earnings per share range of $2.45 - $2.60. This earnings per share range assumes an effective tax rate of 13% versus 10.8% in 2011 and a full-year EUR/USD currency exchange rate of 1.30 versus 1.39 in 2011.

Non-GAAP Measures

Pro Forma net income (earnings) per share

Management believes that net income per share before the impact of foreign currency transaction gains or losses and other one-time items is an important measure. The majority of the Company's consolidated foreign currency gain or loss results from transactions involving the Euro, the British Pound Sterling and the Taiwan Dollar and from the exchange rate impact of the significant cash and marketable securities, receivables and payables held in U.S. dollars at the end of each reporting period by the Company's various non U.S. subsidiaries. Such gains or losses are required under GAAP because the functional currency of the subsidiaries differs from the currency in which various assets and liabilities are held. However, there is minimal cash impact from such foreign currency gains or losses. Accordingly, earnings per share before the impact of foreign currency transaction gains or losses allow an assessment of the Company's operating performance before the non-cash impact of the position of the U.S. Dollar versus other currencies, which permits a consistent comparison of results between periods.

The following table contains a reconciliation of GAAP net income per share to pro forma net income per share.

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 flow less capital expenditures for property and equipment.

The following table contains a reconciliation of GAAP net cash provided by operating activities to free cash flow.

Return on invested capital (ROIC)

Management defines return on invested capital (ROIC) as net operating profit after taxes divided by operating invested capital. Management believes that ROIC provides greater visibility into how effectively Garmin deploys capital. ROIC is not a measure of financial performance under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP), and may not be defined and calculated by other companies in the same manner as Garmin does. ROIC should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income as an indicator of company performance.

The following table contains a GAAP reconciliation of return on invested capital.
