RF Industries Reports Fourth Quarter and Year End Results; Reiterates Guidance for First Quarter of Fiscal 2014

RF Industries, Ltd. (NASDAQ:RFIL) announced results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended October 31, 2013.

Highlights:

  • Annual revenues increased 32% to $36.6 million
  • Divested unprofitable RF Neulink and RadioMobile divisions
  • Balance sheet remains strong with $11.9 million in cash and no debt

RF Industries reported net sales of $36.6 million for fiscal 2013, an increase of 32% compared to net sales of $27.7 million in fiscal 2012. Most of the increase in net sales is due to $19.3 million in sales from Cables Unlimited for the year ended October 31, 2013. Additionally, the Company recorded increased sales for fiscal 2013 at its Medical Cabling and Interconnector segment as compared to fiscal 2012. In fiscal 2013, the Company reported operating income of $6.8 million, a 67% increase compared to operating income of $4.1 million in fiscal 2012. Income from continuing operations in fiscal 2013 increased 90% to $5.0 million or $0.65 per basic and $0.59 per diluted share as compared to income from continuing operations of $2.6 million or $0.38 per basic and $0.34 per diluted share in the prior year period.

During fiscal 2013, the Company sold its RF Neulink and RadioMobile divisions and the operating results of these divisions are reported as discontinued operations for all periods presented. Loss from discontinued operations for the year ended October 31, 2013, net of tax, was $1.1 million compared to income from discontinued operations, net of tax, of $4,000 in the prior year period. Net income for the year ended October 31, 2013 after accounting for the $1.1 million net loss from discontinued operations was $3.8 million, or $0.50 per basic and $0.46 per diluted share, compared to $2.6 million or $0.38 per basic and $0.34 per diluted share in fiscal 2012.

For the fourth quarter ended October 31, 2013, the Company reported net sales of $8.4 million, a decrease of 9%, compared to $9.3 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2012. The Company reported operating income of $1.2 million, a decrease of 28% compared to operating income of $1.7 million in the fourth quarter of the previous year. Income from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 was $0.9 million or $0.12 per basic and $0.11 per diluted share, as compared to $0.9 million or $0.13 per basic and $0.12 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012.

During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 the Company sold its RadioMobile division, resulting in a reported loss from discontinued operations, net of tax, of $0.7 million. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company reported income from discontinued operations, net of tax, of $0.2 million. Net income for the fourth quarter fiscal 2013, after accounting for the $0.7 million net loss from discontinued operations, was $0.3 million or $0.03 per basic and diluted share, compared to $1.2 million, or $0.17 per basic and $0.15 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Howard Hill, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “2013 was a year of growth and change for our company. We are pleased to have achieved solid revenue growth in fiscal 2013, which reflected increased demand for our offerings in each of our continuing segments throughout most of the year. We saw particularly strong performance in fiscal 2013 from our Cables Unlimited segment due to the strong demand for its OptiFlex™ fiber optic cabling solution for cell towers. Cables Unlimited contributed 90% of our overall revenue growth. As we announced on January 3, 2014, since mid-October 2013, sales for OptiFlex™ have substantially slowed primarily due to a decline in the demand for cabling systems and increased competitive pressure. Although we expect that consolidated revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 will be in the range of $5.5 million to $6.5 million compared to our record first quarter fiscal 2013 revenues of $9.9 million, we nevertheless expect that the company will continue to achieve moderate profitability in the first quarter of 2014. The success of the OptiFlex™ solution has further established the division as a prominent designer and developer of fiber connectivity solutions, and has led our customers to seek additional connectivity solutions from that division.”

“Our focus is on growing our custom interconnect solutions to the wireless infrastructure industry and during the last twelve months, we sold RF Neulink and RadioMobile, the businesses which comprised our RF Wireless division. Neither business had performed to our expectations during the past few years and in general, the wireless segment operated at a loss. The divestiture of the RF Wireless segment allows us to concentrate our efforts and put our full resources behind our core competencies. Demand for wireless connectivity is growing at a rapid pace and our goal is to develop state-of-the-art, customized connectivity solutions for new and existing customers that position them to remain competitive in this space.”

Mr. Hill further commented, “The Company has a strong cash position and no debt, and the cash generated from operations allows us to return capital to our shareholders through dividends such as the one we recently announced, and/or stock repurchases, while also allowing us to consider strategic acquisitions.”
