Optex Systems Holdings, Inc. Releases Quarterly Results

RICHARDSON, TX--(Marketwired - May 14, 2014) - Optex Systems Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: OPXS), a leading manufacturer of optical sighting systems and assemblies primarily for Department of Defense applications, reported operating results for the three months ended March 30, 2014.

In the three months ended March 30, 2014, revenues decreased by ($1.6) million or (42.1%) from the respective prior period in 2013. The decreased revenue is primarily due to lower revenue in plastic and glass periscopes due to reduced spending by the U.S. Government compared to prior year levels.The gross margin during the three months ended March 30, 2014 was $0.36 million or 16.4% of revenues as compared to a gross margin of $0.66 million or 17.4% for the three months ended March 31, 2013. The slight decrease in gross margin percentage for the period, as compared to the prior year period, is primarily due to reserves booked for excess slow moving inventory in the current quarter. During the three months ended March 30, 2014, we recorded a net loss applicable to common shareholders of ($0.14) million as compared to net loss applicable to common shareholders of ($0.11) million during the three months ended March 31, 2013. The increased loss of ($0.03) million is primarily due to the lower revenue and the associated gross margin offset with reduced general and administrative spending of $0.23 million and favorable changes in deferred income taxes of $0.02 million and interest expense of $0.01 million in the current year period as compared to the prior year.

In the six months ended March 30, 2014, revenues decreased by ($2.1) million or (27.6%) from the respective prior period in 2013. There continues to be uncertainty in future U.S. military spending over the next 10 years pending Congressional resolution of the sequestration cuts to defense spending which began in fiscal year 2013. The ramifications of the 2012 Congressional budget sequestration have resulted in yet more uncertainty and potential cuts in spending by the U.S. military, and we have had to explore other avenues of revenue. We continue to explore other opportunities for manufacturing outside of our traditional product lines for products which could be manufactured using our existing capabilities in order to fully utilize our existing capacity. Given the reduction in backlog in early fiscal year 2014, we do not anticipate being able to fully offset the reduced government spending with alternative business in the next six months.The gross margin during the six months ended March 30, 2014 was $0.98 million or 17.8% of revenues as compared to a gross margin of $1.35 million or 17.8% for the six months ended March 31, 2013. The total gross margin is down for the six months due to lower revenue, however the gross margin as a percentage of revenue is in line with the prior year period gross margin.During the six months ended March 30, 2014, we recorded a net loss applicable to common shareholders of ($0.16) million as compared to a net loss applicable to common shareholders of ($0.7) million during the six months ended March 31, 2013. The increase in net loss of ($0.09) million is primarily attributable to lower revenue and the associated gross margin offset with the reduced general and administrative spending of $0.2 million and favorable changes in deferred income taxes of $0.04 million in the current year period as compared to the prior year.

Backlog, as of March 30, 2014, was $11.1 million as compared to a backlog of $16.5 million as of March 31, 2013, representing a decrease of $5.4 million or 32.7%. In the six months ending March 30, 2014, Optex Systems Holdings received $4.4 million in new orders consisting of $2.3 million in plastic periscopes, $1.7 million in M36/DDAN sighting systems and $0.4 million in other product lines.

As of March 30, 2014, we had cash and cash equivalents of $1.2 million. During the period from September 29, 2013 through March 30, 2014, we increased cash and cash equivalents by $0.03 million primarily attributable to decreased purchases and inventory and collections on open accounts receivable, which was partially offset by payments against the credit facility. We believe our resources and liquidity are sufficient for the next twelve months of operations.

"Second Quarter results were disappointing and below expectation," stated Danny Schoening, Optex CEO. "The volume of new solicitations and product orders from U.S. Government Defense agencies continue to slow as the results of defense spending cutbacks are realized. In addition, the shift in purchasing responsibility for many of our products has been transferred to the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) where there's been a noticeable shift from reliability to lower price. We are transitioning several of our volume periscopes to lower cost models with streamlined production overhead to meet this new criteria."

In this quarter our sales to foreign entities continues to expand and we delivered the first order of Optex's electronically enhanced M17 Day/Thermal periscope to a South American country's department of defense. Additionally, we are presenting our entire product line of modernized periscopes and sighting systems at the Armored Vehicles Latin America in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on May 27-29, 2014.

Merrick Okamoto, Optex's Chairman, also commented, "Our corporate focus continues to be on merger and acquisition opportunities because we're confident that a strong partnership can benefit Optex and other companies during this cycle of lower defense spending. Our commitment continues to be providing high-quality, value and durable products to defense organizations worldwide."
