Evans & Sutherland Reports Profitable 2013 Results

Evans & Sutherland Computer Corporation (E&S) (OTCPK: ESCC) today reported financial results in its Form 10-K filing for the year ended December 31, 2013.

Sales for 2013 were $29.6 million, compared to sales of $24.9 million for 2012. The net income for 2013 was $1.2 million or $0.11 per share, compared to a net loss of $2.3 million or $0.21 per share for 2012. The total comprehensive income for the year was $11.2 million compared to a comprehensive loss of $2.8 million for 2012. Revenue backlog as of December 31, 2013 was $17.2 million compared to backlog of $15.5 million as of December 31, 2012.

Comments from David H. Bateman, President and Chief Executive Officer:

“Stronger sales for all of our products in 2013 resulted in a larger operating profit for the year as compared to an operating loss for 2012. The net income for 2013 marks the first annual profit reported in several years. The total comprehensive income is primarily attributable to a $10 million decrease in the accounting measurement of our pension and retirement obligations, which was caused by an increase in the discount rate used to measure the pension obligation along with investment gains in pension plan assets.

“We have made significant progress toward the settlement of our Pension Plan liabilities through the distress termination application process. Recent correspondence with the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation indicates that the application process will result in a settlement of the Pension Plan liabilities on terms that will enable the Company to continue to operate as a going concern. However, the Company is uncertain of the timing or the ultimate outcome as of the date of our 10-K filing.

“Customer interest in all of our products remains strong and we intend to continue to aggressively pursue opportunities in the digital theater and other markets served by our products, as well as development and improvement of new and innovative products. We expect variable but consistent future sales and gross profits from our current product line at annual levels sufficient to cover or exceed operating expenses, not including the expense of the Pension Plan. With relief from the burden of the Pension Plan, we believe an improved financial position may present opportunities for better results through the availability of credit and stronger qualification for customer projects.

“Our outlook for the business remains positive.”
