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.
