SCI Engineered Materials, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter 2013 Results

COLUMBUS, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 03/04/14 -- SCI Engineered Materials, Inc. ("SCI") (OTCQB: SCIA), a global supplier and manufacturer of advanced materials for PVD thin film applications that works closely with end users and OEMs to develop innovative, customized solutions, today reported its financial results for the three months ended December 31, 2013.

Dan Rooney, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are pleased with the year-over-year and sequential quarter improvement in our financial performance. The increase in fourth quarter 2013 total revenue was attributable to strong sales to photonics customers compared to the same period last year. Our profitable fourth quarter results included sharply higher gross profit, income applicable to common stock of $0.02 per diluted share and $194,147 of cash provided by operations. Additionally, EBITDA increased approximately $322,000 versus the fourth quarter 2012."

Mr. Rooney added, "We ended the year with solid momentum following a slow start in the first half of 2013. Our backlog at December 31, 2013, remained steady at $3.4 million compared to September 30, 2013, which was substantially higher than the quarter-end for each of the first two quarters of last year. For the 2014 year-to-date period, the positive bookings trend that developed during the second half of 2013 has continued."

Total revenue

Total revenue for the fourth quarter 2013 increased 34% to $2,940,008 from $2,187,987 for the same period in 2012. This represents the highest quarterly total revenue since the third quarter 2008. Higher sales to photonics customers were particularly strong in the fourth quarter 2013. There was no contract research revenue in the fourth quarter 2013 due to the completion of government grants in the second quarter 2013 compared to $45,006 a year ago. Backlog was $3.4 million at December 31, 2013, compared to $1.8 million on the same date in 2012.

Gross profit

Gross profit more than doubled to $547,666 for the fourth quarter 2013 from $256,810 for the same period of the prior year, principally due to higher revenue and improved product mix. Gross profit margin increased to 18.6% of total revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2013, from 11.7% the prior year.

Operating expense

Operating expense (marketing and sales, general and administrative, and R&D expenses) decreased 4% to $453,727 for the fourth quarter 2013 from $473,482 for the same period a year ago. This decrease was primarily due to zero bad debt expense for the fourth quarter 2013 versus $30,000 for the same period in 2012.

Income (Loss) Applicable to Common Stock

Income applicable to common stock was $95,720 or $0.02 per diluted common share for the three months ended December 31, 2013, compared to a loss applicable to common stock of $243,601 or $0.06 per basic share for the fourth quarter 2012.

EBITDA

EBITDA (Earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization) increased to $254,510 for the fourth quarter 2013 from negative EBITDA of $67,392 for the fourth quarter 2012. Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes non-cash stock based compensation, was $288,125 for the three months ended December 31, 2013, versus negative EBITDA of $32,797 for the same period of the prior year.

Financial Technology has become a topic of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities. Accordingly, attendees at the upcoming 20th Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York, June 6-8, 2017, will find fresh new content in a new track called FinTech.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
"We're a cybersecurity firm that specializes in engineering security solutions both at the software and hardware level. Security cannot be an after-the-fact afterthought, which is what it's become," stated Richard Blech, Chief Executive Officer at Secure Channels, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands. What's more of a mystery is how to balance innovation on a fresh platform built from scratch with the legacy tech stack, product suite and customers that continue to serve as the business' foundation. In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, discussed why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and mor...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals.
