Versar, Inc. Announces Second Quarter Fiscal 2014 Results

SPRINGFIELD, Va., Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Versar, Inc. (NYSE MKT: VSR) today announced financial results for the fiscal second quarter and six months ended December 27, 2013. 

Gross revenue for the second quarter of fiscal year 2014 was $28.0 million, an increase of 16% compared to $24.1 million during the second quarter of the last fiscal year.  The increase was attributable to revenue generated by Geo-Marine, Inc. (GMI); continued activity associated with its ongoing contract with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) for construction support services in Afghanistan; and the continued ramp up of the Company's performance based remediation (PBR) work for the U.S. Air Force in New England and the Great Lakes Region.

The company reported a reduction in gross margins for the quarter primarily due to the decrease in gross profit related to Title II work in Afghanistan, which is anticipated to end in the summer of 2014.  The Company reported net income of $100,000, or $0.01 per share on a fully diluted basis (which includes $0.02 from discontinued operations) compared to net income of $925,000 or $0.09 per share on a fully diluted basis (which included a loss of $0.03 from discontinued operations) for the second quarter last year. 

For the six months ended December 27, 2013, Versar had gross revenue of $57.2 million, an increase of 23% as compared to gross revenue of $46.5 million in the first six months of fiscal 2013.  This revenue increase and lower gross margins for the six months was primarily a result of factors noted above in the second quarter discussion.  Versar recorded net income of $757,000 or $0.08 per share on a fully diluted basis (which includes $0.02 from discontinued operations) in the first six months of fiscal 2014 as compared to $1.8 million or $0.18 per share on a fully diluted basis (which includes a loss of $0.04 from discontinued operations) for the first six months of fiscal 2013.        

As of December 27, 2013, Versar recorded funded backlog of approximately $120 million, an increase of 12% compared to $108 million of funded backlog at the end of fiscal year 2013.

Versar closed the fiscal second quarter of 2014 with a cash balance of approximately $4 million and stockholders' equity of $38.5 million.

Tony Otten, CEO of Versar said, "We achieved solid revenue growth in the second quarter and are particularly pleased with this result, given the government shutdown during the quarter that delayed some contract awards and caused a temporary slowdown in activity for some of our existing projects.  While revenue increased, profitability for the quarter was below historical levels due to higher purchased services and materials related to our PSC and PBR programs. In addition, we had some one-time costs associated with final tax payments related to our fiscal year 2012 acquisition of Charron Construction Consulting, Inc. and severance costs associated with our recent acquisition of GMI.

"Our backlog grew 12% from our June 28, 2013 fiscal year end.  During the quarter, we were awarded $1.1 million in new awards and $440,000 in subcontract extensions from HDR for continued construction management and quality assurance operations in support of the Air Force in Afghanistan. This is in addition to the $8.8 million in awards we received during the last quarter of fiscal 2013 and the first quarter of this fiscal year. These extensions bring our HDR subcontract total to just under $40 million over the life of the subcontract.  This is one of our many contracts in the region and demonstrates the level of confidence our government has in the services we provide.  Additionally, following the close of the quarter we were awarded a $2.25 million contract with Frederick County, Maryland to provide municipal stormwater permit support and a $1.5 million extension of our personal services and support contract with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Iraq." 

Mr. Otten continued, "We continue to make progress with the GMI integration and are encouraged by the strategic benefits of their technical capabilities and diverse customer base.  Our balance sheet remains solid, positioning us well for continued organic growth and providing flexibility for our pursuit of complementary acquisitions."
