API Technologies Reports Results for the Fiscal Fourth Quarter Ended November 30, 2013

API Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:ATNY) ("API" or the "Company"), a leading provider of high performance RF/microwave, power, and security solutions for critical and high-reliability applications, today announced results for the fiscal fourth quarter and twelve months ended November 30, 2013.

“Over the past twelve months we have successfully de-levered our balance sheet, driven operational efficiencies, and introduced innovative and differentiated products, resulting in design wins and sales funnel growth in both our defense and commercial end markets. Notwithstanding a challenging defense budget environment, we have grown our defense revenue year over year, a testament to our technologically advanced solutions and ability to adapt to a changing defense landscape,” said Bel Lazar, President and Chief Executive Officer of API Technologies.

Results for the Quarter Ended November 30, 2013

API Technologies reported revenue of $59.1 million for the quarter ended November 30, 2013, compared to $62.6 million for the quarter ended August 31, 2013, versus $53.4 million in the quarter ended November 30, 2012.

Gross profit as a percentage of sales was 15.2% for the quarter ended November 30, 2013, which included $4.0 million dollars of inventory write downs, compared to 23.9% for the quarter ended August 31, 2013, versus 20.1% for the quarter ended November 30, 2012. Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the quarter ended November 30, 2013 was $6.3 million (10.7% margin), versus $8.4 million (13.3% margin) for the quarter ended August 31, 2013, compared to $6.3 million (11.7% margin) in the quarter ended November 30, 2012.

API Technologies posted a net loss of $7.2 million in the quarter ended November 30, 2013, versus a net income of $7.0 million in the quarter ended August 31, 2013, and a net loss of $12.3 million in the quarter ended November 30, 2012.

Results for the Twelve Months Ended November 30, 2013

API Technologies reported revenue of $244.3 million for the twelve months ended November 30, 2013, compared to $242.4 million for the twelve months ended November 30, 2012. Gross margin was 20.7% for the twelve months ended November 30, 2013 versus 19.2% for the prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $27.1 million for the twelve months ended November 30, 2013, compared to $31.8 million for the twelve months ended November 30, 2012.

The Company posted a net loss of $7.2 million for the twelve months ended November 30, 2013, compared to a net loss of $148.7 million for the prior-year period. The decrease in net loss was driven primarily by a) a $107.5 million Goodwill impairment charge in fiscal 2012, b) $16.2 million dollars of fiscal 2013 net income from Discontinued Operations from the gains on the sales of the Sensors business and Data Bus product line, and c) a $14.5 million dollar decrease in restructuring charges from fiscal 2012 to fiscal 2013. Restructuring costs recorded in the twelve months ended November 30, 2013 were $2.6 million, compared to $17.1 million for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2012.

As of November 30, 2013, the Company had $7.9 million in cash and cash equivalents, including $1.5 million in restricted cash, and $104.8 million in debt obligations, net of discounts.

Subsequent Events

On January 6, 2014, API Technologies announced the completion of a sale/leaseback transaction for its State College, PA facility for $15.5 million. The Company used $14.2 million of the proceeds to pay down the Company’s term loan facility. As of November 30, 2013, the Company had $86.8 million in term loan obligations. As of February 12, 2014, the term loan balance is $72.6 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

In this press release, API has provided non-GAAP financial measures for Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations and from discontinued operations. Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations and discontinued operations (Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) excludes restructuring charges, acquisition and divestiture-related charges, C-MAC pro forma adjustments, foreign exchange losses, stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of note discounts and deferred financing costs, goodwill impairment, SenDEC earn-out reversal, and certain other adjustments. Management believes the supplemental non-GAAP presentations provide investors an additional analytical tool for understanding the Company’s financial performance by excluding the impact of items which may obscure trends in the operating performance of the business. These are not recognized measures under US GAAP, do not have a standardized meaning, and are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures used by other companies. Accordingly, investors are cautioned that these non-GAAP measures should not be construed as an alternative to net earnings or loss determined in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of the financial performance of the Company or as a measure of the Company's liquidity and cash flows. We expect our financial statements to continue to be affected by items similar to those excluded in the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from our non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an inference that all such costs are unusual or infrequent.

Safe Harbor for Forward-Looking Statements

Except for statements of historical fact, the information presented herein constitutes forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include but are not limited to, general economic and business conditions, including without limitation, reductions in government defense spending, government regulations, our ability to integrate and consolidate our operations, our ability to expand our operations in both new and existing markets, the ability of our review of strategic alternatives to maximize stockholder value and the effect of growth on our infrastructure. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should the assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary in material aspects from those currently anticipated. The forward-looking statements in this news release should be read in conjunction with the more detailed descriptions of the above factors located in our Annual Report on Form 10-K under Part I, Item 1A “Risk Factors” as well as those additional factors we may describe from time to time in other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. All information in this release is as of the date hereof. We undertake no duty to update any forward-looking statement to conform the statement to actual results or changes in the Company's expectations. Except as required by law, the Company assumes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements in this press release, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.
