Nortech Systems Reports Second Quarter Results

Nortech Systems Incorporated (NASDAQ: NSYS) today reported net sales of $27.4 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014, up five percent sequentially from the prior quarter and compared with $28.5 million for the second quarter of 2013. Operating income for the second quarter of 2014 was $347,000 a 47 percent sequential increase from the prior quarter and compared with $373,000 for the second quarter of 2013.

The company’s net income for the second quarter of 2014 rose 32 percent to $247,000, or $0.09 per diluted common share, compared with net income of $187,000, or $0.07 per diluted common share, for the same period last year. Results for the second quarter of 2014 included a $100,000 benefit from a favorable tax audit settlement.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, Nortech Systems reported net sales of $53.6 million, compared with $54.4 million for the same period in 2013. Net income for the six-month period ended June 30, 2014, was $333,000, or $0.12 per diluted common share, compared with $328,000, or $0.12 per diluted common share, for the same period in 2013.

“We’re encouraged by the sequential improvement in revenue and profits,” said Rich Wasielewski, Nortech Systems’ president and CEO, adding that profitability was aided by leveraging, continuous improvement activities and product mix.

He continued, “New order activity is rising and our backlog levels have posted year-over-year increases the past two quarters.” The company’s 90-day backlog rose 13 percent during the second quarter; medical and industrial customers recorded quarterly increases both sequentially and year-over-year. Defense demand was lower due to government program transitions and funding delays.

“We’re pleased with our momentum going into the second half of 2014, including our order pipeline, and the improving economic conditions,” concluded Wasielewski. “We’re dedicated to helping our customers succeed.”
